Penthouse living awaits!  Gwithian is a spacious top floor penthouse that has been cleverly interior designed throughout, combining bespoke furniture, fixtures and fittings with more unusual pieces including a retro jukebox CD player.  Gwithian enjoys 180 degree unrivalled views that stretch from Porthmeor beach, across St Ives Harbour and beyond.  For that ultimate added bonus, Gwithian offer an off-road parking space. **Please note there is ongoing building works at the Tate, St Ives and disruption to the neighbouring area.

The Property

Gwithian has been interior designed creating a lofty contemporary feel with a dash of individual character.  Natural light floods the open plan space for a welcoming atmosphere.  A glass door from the entrance hall leads into the open plan kitchen/dining/living area featuring twin turrets and double French doors that open out onto a Juliet balcony.  The leather "easy chair" and stool is perfectly placed for soaking up those unbeatable picture perfect views.  Two beautiful bedrooms ensure a touch of luxury at the day's end, as you sink under marshmallow duvets and fresh linens.  A sleek stylish kitchen with highly polished slate worktops is superbly equipped.

Gwithian is a beautiful property and was spotlessly clean on arrival. It is very close to the beaches and shops if you can tear yourself away from those views!! We really enjoyed our stay - thank you!


Gwithian penthouse benefits from an elevated position making the most of the outstanding 180 degree views that stretch from Porthmeor beach, across 'The Island', St Ives Harbour, Porthminster beach, Godrevy and beyond.  Wander from your holiday home down into the heart of St Ives - children will love the long beach and calm shores of the bay - be it bucket and spade days or paddling, choosing to stop a while at a beach side cafe and simply watch the comings and goings of harbour life.  Gwithian penthouse is perfect for couples and families seeking the ultimate St Ives luxury holiday apartment boasting incredible views with all the delights of St Ives on your doorstep.  An off road parking space is designated for guests' use.
