Merryn is a luxury holiday house in a fabulous location on a very quiet street just a few minutes walk from the stunning surfing beach of Porthmeor. Throw in plenty of parking, fabulous sea views and enclosed courtyard garden and you have the perfect house for a luxurious stay in St Ives.

This stunning house is located on Carthew Terrace, a small lane of granite houses tucked away off the beaten track yet just a short trek down the hill to St Ives’ town centre, harbour and sandy beaches.

Arranged over three floors, the house has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a snug living room and, perhaps best of all, a lovely, light and spacious kitchen dining room. The house has been fully refurbished yet retains many tasteful period features, whilst the quality furnishings have the perfect balance of classic and contemporary. Outside you will find an enclosed courtyard with outdoor sofas and dining table together with a large gas bbq, the perfect spot for dining al-fresco. The sea views from the first and second floors are truly spectacular.

Those familiar with St Ives will appreciate the private parking across the lane to the front and space for two cars to the rear. There is even space to park on the lane to the front for an additional car.

The kitchen is extremely well-equipped with dishwasher, microwave, 5-ring cooker, large American style fridge freezer and Nespresso coffee machine, with an initial supply of Cornish coffee pods also included. The separate utility room has additional facilities with washer dryer, ironing board and iron.

The front bedrooms are light and spacious and offer those aforementioned spectacular views over Porthmeor beach and beyond to ‘The Island’, St Ives’ famous landmark headland that overlooks the old fishing quarter known as Downalong. In these bedrooms the beds are large (king and super-king) with top quality deep mattresses ensuring you a restful nights sleep after a busy day on the beach! The other two bedrooms offer the same level of quality and comfort with beds on a smaller scale (double and 2 x singles).

There are three bathrooms, one on each level… shower room on the ground floor, family bathroom for the first floor and en-suite shower room at the top.

Merryn is not only the perfect property for the summer months as under-floor heating keeps things nice and cosy on the ground floor with radiators on the upper floors and heated towel rails in all the bathrooms.

A well behaved dog is welcome at Merryn with dog treats on arrival.

Whether your preference is for contemporary or Victorian you will love your stay at Merryn. This stunning house really does tick all the boxes for the ultimate luxury holiday house in St Ives. 





One of the coolest eateries in St Ives, Porthmeor Beach Café offers a buzzing atmosphere and al-fresco dining where you can either sit back on the terrace and admire the views or chill out in the heated booths. Take your pick from an extensive menu which includes their famous build your own breakfast and seafood tapas.
Book a window table in advance, perfect over the summer months to take in those stunning sunsets over Porthmeor beach.

Had the most fabulous week at Merryn in Carthew Terrace, this is a gorgeous property with top quality furnishings and fittings. Great location, just outside the busy noisy area and everything easily walkable. All in all, a memorable few days and I can’t wait to go back!
