Spacious and comfortable
Our party of 4 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 smaller children enjoyed a great week in St Ives. The house is large and well equipped. The weather was generally fine but the indoor pool was great, especially when the rain fell. There is plenty of room throughout. The main balcony affords a fine view of the bay and we did manage to eat on it a couple of times.
The house is located above the resort. If you don't fancy the climb back, a taxi from the square was £4 or the bus to the main town car park is £1 and runs frequently.
Thanks Keith,Carole and I are pleased you had a good week, thanks for the kind review.
Perfect Place in a Great Location
Just returned from a great week at Porthminster House in St Ives. House is fantastic with stunning views from living room and master bedroom. Breakfast on the balcony overlooking St Ives Bay is a treat and not to be missed. Indoor pool is larger than it looks and couldn't get the teenagers out of it.. swim in the morning ...swim in the evening .....with a terrace at the side for hot days. Superb.
House is really smart and well looked after with the comfiest sofa set ever..hard not to fall asleep every time you sit. Lots of leaflets around the house with places to go and things to do and lots of local artwork on the walls. Owners are really friendly and left us a cream tea to begin our week with homemade scones which was a nice touch.
Had a great time exploring all the different hidden passages down to St Ives and the beach and didn't get a taxi back once. If anyone struggles with steps a taxi back from the town or beach is less than a fiver but only takes 5 minutes to walk down. Loads of spare parking at the house which is a bonus in St Ives especially in August.
Cant fault anything and we had a great time and look forward to returning in the future. Thanks
Fantastic location minutes to the stunning Porthminster beach, a particular favourite of mine. I stayed here with my family for a week. I woke up every morning to a swim in the heated pool before breakfast on the balcony with panoramic views, such a treat! Highly recommended, well worth the stay!
