Porthia View, as the name suggests, lies elevated above Porthminster beach to take in the enviable picture-perfect views across to St Ives.  This two bed luxury apartment forms the ground floor of a semi-detached period house, think traditional features with a contemporary twist.  Choose to walk into the town or hop in the car for a day exploring the west. ***Please note there is development work being undertaken on the neighbouring site, a 20% discount has been applied on all weeks up until the end of 2017, please enquire for futher details.  

The Property

Enjoy the spectacular views from the original bay window out across the azure blue seas of St Ives Bay and the harbour below.  Choose to take time out by relaxing at the outdoor dining table whilst you enjoy a view of the comings and goings of harbour life, from fishing boats to leaisure cruisers.  The conservatory is excellent for storing muddy boots during winter stays, and is also a sheltered spot to relax with the papers.  The spacious lounge/dining room has a large bay window which showcases the view and is fitted with quality furniture and monochrome framed photographs of St Ives.  The kitchen is well equipped for holiday cooking and even the breakfast bar has a sea view!  Each bedroom has been thoughtfully designed with comfort and relaxation in mind.

The property was impossible to fault, comfortable and well-appointed with everything in full working order. Wonderful views of the town and bay. Cornish Gems service was also very good. 

A spacious area for parking directly outside the apartment means you can load up for the day and escape the bustle of St Ives.  A small border garden offers privacy and a well placed dining table with chairs is lovely for a sundowner.  A short walk down into the heart of St Ives and you are instantly immersed in this wonderful coastal town brimming with cafes, shops and beach life.  Choose to dine at the much acclaimed Porthminster Beach Cafe for the ultimate beachside dining experience - just a short stroll from Porthia View.  Whether Westcountry explorations are top of the itinerary or more relaxed family days then this versatile apartment is perfect for couples and families alike.

Porthia Bay (sleeps 4) is above Porthia View making it a good choice for larger parties of 4 or more who wish to holiday together but remain independant from each other.

We thought this was a really lovely property and enjoyed our stay. It was immaculately clean and in good order which was really important for us having two small children. We were so at home and enjoying ourselves. We really liked the property and the view.

Joanne Norgate

The property was impossible to fault, comfortable and well-appointed with everything in full working order. Wonderful views of the town and bay. Cornish Gems service was also very good. Overall, no complaints at all.

Will Burnham

Cornish Gems completely rescued our holiday - we started in a cramp and damp cottage we hadn't booked via you and when we moved to our Cornish Gem found it was a home from home. We come to Cornwall every year so I think you may have us as customers for life after such a positive first experience. Thank you also for turning out in the rain to deliver our Cornish Cream Tea - it was a lovely surprise and totally unexpected after we booked so late. Thank you to all the team - we are very impressed!

Susan Coen

We really enjoyed our holiday and we will certainly be booking with Cornish Gems again in the future.

Marie Gameson

Nicola Rosson

The lady I booked the property with on the telephone was professional & very friendly. The property was lovely and like new.

Lorraine Loftus

Porthia View was a lovely place to stay, just in the right location by the beach, easy walk down into St Ives, and a stunning view of St Ives - the only thing was we didn't reserve the weather!

Julie Beaumont

The property was excellent for our needs, warm, comfortable and spacious with furnishings and decoration of a high standard. The view from the lovely bay window is fabulous. We had a very relaxing stay and would book this property again.
