Pier House is located in one of the most photographed and iconic corners of this beautiful town down on the southern tip of Cornwall. On leaving the house, you step out into one of the oldest parts of this historic town, a rustic conservation area nestled between Bamaluz beach and the sheltered harbour beach and just a stones throw from the waters edge. Inside the house you have stunning panoramic views across the harbour and of St Ives Bay with its ever changing colours, its sparkling blue and mesmerising waters. It is located in the perfect position, close to all the beautiful beaches this town is fortunate to have on its doorstep and has a real seaside atmosphere situated amongst the old fisherman cottages that line the narrow cobbled streets.
Pier House has accomodation set over 3 floors with its entrance door off the cobbled street adjacent to Smeatons Pier. It is sat above a small Italian cafe run by a young Italian couple who offer fresh home made food and and true Italian coffee. Very artisan. However Pier House has the space and light of a large townhouse and is bright and airy with a state of the art kitchen and two living rooms. The very top floor has a unique feeling of relaxation with sunlight flooding the room all day from its three aspects. Its views are unsurpassed in St Ives.
Pier House is within easy walking distance of all the restaurants and galleries of the town and the famous Porthmoer surfing beach with its crashing surf which is overlooked by The Tate. It is also very close to the more tranquil beaches of Porthgwidden, Bamaluz and the delightful harbour beach, a really lovely sheltered little beach great for families and sunbathers alike.
Pier House is in the heart of it all so it is easy to be part of the buzzing seaside life or hop in to your own little sanctuary where you can observe it all going on. Push up the sash windows and let the summer sunshine in or cosy up by the fire with a glass of wine. Whether a large family or a couple, Pier House is the ideal luxury holiday accomodation.

Testimonials from previous visitors.
We absolutely loved Pier House - what a gorgeous property in a perfect location, beautifully furnished with everything you could need. We don't want to leave. St Ives still magical on our 6th visit, but weather rather interesting this week!! We can't wait to come back to Pier House - we have found our perfect property in our favourite place - see you next year.

Had a fantastic family holiday in Pier House. Love St Ives anyway but usually stay over the other side of the harbour. Loved having the harbour beach on our doorstep, great for the little ones. The layout of the house was great with the attic room a real treat! We were treated to amazing weather too, which was very welcome but totally unexpected. Full marks too for the beds which were very comfy. Great natural mattresses, I have had to purchase one myself. Very clean, beautiful colours on the walls too. Thank you.

Fabulous house. It's been our 5th year in St Ives and this has been the best accomodation with the best views we have ever had.
The Howells family from Warickshire
Spectacular views and lovely weather. Really enjoyed our week in St Ives. Loved the house and the girls especially enjoyed the beautiful attic room.

Our father grew up in St Ives (Charleswood) and we have been returning and renting cottages (as a family) for the last 60 years!!! Nothing has compared to this! It's light, modern, roomy, relaxing and wonderfully central. Thank you so much and we'd love to return.

Pier House is amazing, we had a truly delightful stay! As a St Ives girl I wanted the best possible place to bring my friends for the first time - this was definitely it. Every detail and personal touch was much appreciated (thanks for sorting the scorching sun all week too) We know the family who owned the house and shop many years ago - they would love what has been achieved with the house - the spirit of this beautiful town house been well and truly preserved. Many thanks.
