Step Inside

Climb the 10 steps to your door for this most rewarding of Cornish Gems.  The property itself has been well thought out and offers a high standard of accommodation throughout.  The focal point of the room is its long solid wood breakfast bar with 6 stools which are strategically placed facing the window so you can soak up the views whilst you dine.  The living area offers an extremely comfortable sofa and collection of chairs for those storm watching days.  From the uber-smart kitchen to the bespoke styling of the indulgent bedrooms, Island View enjoys the finer things in life.

From your Holiday Door

Whilst there is no garden at Island View, St Ives is certainly your playground.  At the front is a very small, narrow terrace suitable for sitting outside and making the most of the sunset views with sundowner in hand, a couple of patio chairs can be found in the hallway cupboard.  The all important designated parking space ensures a quick escape from the bustle of the town.  Head west as the roads narrow and scenery changes to rugged cliffs and forgotten coves.  The charming St Ives branch line (a 10 minute walk) follows the coast meeting the mainline service to Truro, Cornwall's Cathedral city and well worth a visit.  Island View is perfect for couples and families seeking the ultimate St Ives luxury holiday apartment boasting incredible views, with all the charm of St Ives on your doorstep.  Cornish Gems are proud to present 3 luxury apartments within the exclusive 'Porthmeor Apartments'.  This beautiful collection of apartments includes; Island View (sleeps 6), Gwithian (sleeps 4), Carbis (sleeps 4).  All 3 apartments have been carefully crafted combining the very best in quality furniture, fixtures and fittings with some unique and interesting one-off pieces.

Really great property with incredible views.

Marc Von Wartburg

We were very happy with the location and parking area. The view from the two main windows were both exceptional with a fantastic vista. We have recommended Cornish Gems already to our friends who regularly visit St Ives and are looking for a future place to stay later this year.

John Biggin

We loved staying at island view, it was great.

Stephen Cornforth

We will definitely book again, probably same cottage for the same week. We have stayed in various properties in St Ives but first time with Cornish Gems. Definitely a class or two above anyone else we have used. Many thanks.

Fantastic property and just as the website described. Loved the welcome pack on arrival, it is the small things that make a big difference.

Booking via the website was quick and easy. The property was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. We had a fantastic time and plan to rebook very soon for next year. I have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family!

Probably the best positioned property in St.Ives. Excellent for Porthmeor beach. We parked the car on Saturday and didn't get in it again for a week!!! :)


It's our second time in that property and we can't wait to decide which week to go next year, its ace!

A fantastic property with amazing views of the beach and harbour. Perfect location for enjoying all the amenities of St Ives.

Having the private parking is great. Views from the property are terrific and its location for the town and beaches is second to none, would definitely recommend it to anyone.
