    “First the good stuff: Breakers Point is well appointed, clean and comfortable, a credit to owner and caretaker.”

    ...

    The location is away from the busy part of town but towards the top of Porthmeor Hill which has an estimated gradient of c1:7.5(13.3%) overall a drop of 51m to Porthmeor beach.(courtesy Google Earth) Porthcurno is well worth a visit - lovely beach/bay and transatlantic cable history. Now the bad stuff: I think it remiss of the owner not to mention that there is another property built in the original back yard of 7 Ayr Terrace, currently known as Beach Hut. (Sykes ref. 1055165). The impression is given of one offroad parking space. Yes it states "best suited for a small car". My car will fit the stated space with an open door. In reality there is an adjacent wall and another parked car. Because of the confines Breakers Point resident has to drive in and Beach Hut resident can only reverse in. Oh and another car parks on the opposite side of the access lane making it virtually impossible. I chose to park (at a cost) on a local holiday park 0.3mile away. Beach Hut I believe has a different owner and their listing mentions even less! Parking is the problem not adjacent residents. A complaint has been raised but no feedback one week later.

The property

Lap up ocean views over St Ives Bay along the coast to Godrevy Lighthouse from the sanctuary of this modern, year-round getaway.

Located in an enviable position with an idyllic beach within moments, Breakers Point is well-placed to explore by foot the joys of Cornwall's most famous seaside town.

You can park the car without hassle in the space provided (a Godsend for St Ives) and leave it! The town is almost surrounded by the sea and boasts an array of golden beaches.

The largest, Porthmeor Beach, is a 5 minute downhill walk and great for surfing, swimming, sandcastles and the best sunsets in town.

Book a surf lesson, reserve a table for dinner at the beachside restaurant or visit the iconic Tate St Ives gallery located next to the beach.

Stroll into the hub of town and discover cobbled streets lined with boutique shops, award winning art galleries and tempting cafes, inns and restaurants.

Head for the seafront and soak up the harbour side atmosphere.

You might be lucky to see a curious seal or dolphin amid the comings and goings of the fishing and pleasure boats.

Walkers will love it here too!

Tall granite cliffs, wild moorland, hidden coves and fascinating wild life are some of the wonders to be encountered on the south west coast path and the nearby landmark attractions at Land's End, St Michael's Mount and The Minack Theatre present opportunities to string together a very memorable holiday experience. Check in to Breakers Point, spread out over three floors and unwind in a laid back, home-from-home vibe.

Practical and spacious for families and couples, the open plan living room is equipped with a cosy coal-effect gas fire and well-resourced kitchen.

Head up to the first floor to a pristine bathroom, complete with a deep bath tub and separate shower, and a generous twin bedroom furnished with comfy twin 'zip and link' beds (which can be presented as a super king size bed on request and at time of booking).

Parents will love the cleverly crafted loft-style bedroom on the second floor with dual aspect views of the legendary Island Peninsula and across the rooftops of St Ives to the sea.

Outside is a small and enclosed flower-filled patio that is perfect for soaking up the rays.

About the location

ST IVES

Penzance 6 miles.

One of Cornwall's prettiest harbour towns, St Ives offers narrow streets, tight-packed cottages nestling around the quayside, the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth museum, fabulous beaches, superb shops, a thriving community of artists, great pubs and restaurants and much more. With its semi Bohemian lifestyle and romantic air, it's easy to see why this is the county's premier holiday resort. The surrounding area has much for the visitor to see and do with abundant wildlife, fabulous coastal walks, top quality surfing and the Celtic mysteries of the Land's End Peninsula are all within easy reach. A superb destination!

Note: Parking space suitable for a small car. Space dimension is 2.3m wide and 9m long.
Note: Please state at the point of booking if you require beds to be made up differently to that specified. Late notice may mean we are not able to change the configuration in time for your arrival.
