Beautiful property with stunning views


The apartment was spotlessly clean, and the beds were very comfortable.

This was our first Cornish Gems holiday. We had a fantastic stay and couldn't have asked for anymore. It was very well equipped and a lovely property with a beautiful view. Thank you Cornish Gems

Clare Custance

Lovely property and enjoyed our stay.

Donna Hill

Excellent location and property. Couldn't fault it! Had every thing we could possibly need. Very impressed.

Surinder Beniston

We were delighted with Porthia Bay. We've rented many self catering properties over the last few years, including several in St.Ives, and this is the best we have ever stayed in. The property was really well furnished, decorated and the views were quite simply stunning! The welcome parcel was also a lovely touch - thanks Cornish Gems
