Step Inside

Sunset House is a newly renovated home set over three floors with a plum location on Porthmeor beach. Step inside and descend down into the hub of the house, the large open plan living, dining and kitchen areas which are flooded with natural light from the floor to ceiling glass windows, perfectly framing the stunning sea and sand views beyond. With a fresh coastal interior design, think pared back beach style and healthy dose of the vitamin sea at every turn. The kitchen is a modern sleek design offering all you need to enjoy the finest Cornish culinary menus from hearty brunches to fine celebratory dinners. The dining table offers a persuasive stay at home option for the perfect 'table with a view'. The spacious living area is relaxed and versatile, slide back the glass doors to extend the space onto the beach-bleached terrace or hunker down as the winter winds whip up the surf. A practical utility room is located just off the kitchen where your beach kit can be stowed. Ascend the open-tread stairs to the first floor and two of the ensuite bedrooms (master and bedroom three) before climbing again to the second floor for bedrooms two and four. Each bedroom is no less considered with the finest beds and bedding, glorious sea views and indulgent bathrooms. 

On Your Doorstep

Sliding back the full height glass doors from the living area extends your holiday footprint onto the terrace, your very own private space above the comings and goings of beach life below. Enjoy breakfast alfresco, coffee and cake before cocktails as the sun goes down. Flip between sea swims and the terrace for the ultimate Cornish holiday. If you can bear to leave the oasis of Sunset House then immerse yourself in the hubbub of beautiful St Ives where traditional cottage-lined streets lead to the harbour, to the plethora of boutique shops and galleries and to the collection of sandy beaches that flank the town including Porthminster, Bamaluz and Porthgwidden each offering crystal clear waters. Porthmeor beach is quite literally a skip away and attracts the local surfers making the most of the swells. The west of Cornwall is easily accessed and well worth exploring as the coast road leads down towards Sennen, Porthcurno, St Just and Land's End.

If you dream of those oh so carefree holiday days wrapped up in Cornish Gems luxury then check-in to Sunset House, St Ives and create everlasting memories beside the sea.
