Holiday Rental House
BeachBreak St Ives offers fantastic sea and coastal views from an elevated position above Porthmeor Beach. The house and parking are easily accessed by car and it does not require negotiating the narrow streets of the old town. The house is in walking distance of all that St Ives has to offer. Outside of peak weeks we offer arrival on either a Monday or a Friday. We grew up in the area and were fortunate enough to be able to buy a lovely holiday property and try to get back 'home' as often as we can. We have been sharing our holiday home for many years and have a good number of regular visitors who enjoy our place as much as we do. Frequent use by the family means that the house is well cared for and well equipped to meet all your holiday needs.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Beautiful sea views in lovely St. Ives
We spent a week at Beach Break House in June, unfortunately the weather wasn’t too nice so it was lovely to return at the end of the day to a very comfortable, cosy place instead of a B & B which we have done in the past. It has everything that you might need to enjoy your holiday & is close to lovely coastal walks & shops & eating places. There is off road parking too. The beautiful sea views was the icing on the cake! We hope to stay again.

A beautiful Beach Break
We had the most lovely stay @beach break. This is clearly a well loved home and house; the location is just perfect for Porthmeor Beach and a few minutes walk into the centre of St Ives. Our accommodation was excellent, with everything we needed and more. A lovely open plan living area and kitchen with a fabulous sun trap garden/courtyard at the rear. We couldn’t have widened for more. Thankyou for a wonderful stay.

Perfect!
Stayed here for a week with my family and it ticked all boxes, twice! The garden area, while small was perfect for family bbq’s and a real sun trap in the early evening after a day exploring St Ives & the surrounding area. Parking was a real bonus and the house was amazing, having everything you could ask for. Clean, spacious with fantastic views of the sea. Would not hesitate to stay here again!

Heavenly home
We had a family holiday in Beach Break House last June and I can honestly say that it is an absolute gem in every way. It is ideally located as it is only 2 minutes walk to Porthmeor beach, it’s cafes, restaurant where we were lucky enough to watch the sun go down whilst enjoying a 5 star dinner (book early). There is a surf school on that beach, ideal for the young ones and the older ones too!! The house is 5 minutes walk to Porthgwidden beach, a scenic cove very sheltered and quaint whilst a 20 minutes walk will take you to Porthminster beach. Beach Break House is less than 10 minutes walk to St Ives harbour so no need to wait for everyone to be up and ready as they can easily join you later for a coffee, giving everyone freedom and independence in spite of being together. It is also ideally situated for the casual or keen walker as the coastal path is on the door step. The views from the house are breathtaking. The beauty of this home is that it offers 2 parking spaces which is not usual when renting a cottage in St Ives. You don’t actually need a car whilst staying there unless you are planning to do some sightseeing as it is close to the railway station. The house itself is the best equipped house I have ever stayed at, it was totally unexpected to find everything you needed, just like if it was your very own holiday home. It is a very spacious house, bright and very comfortable and you can enjoy the sun in the secluded back all day. This holiday was very memorable and I am hoping to return in the not too distant future. We all came back from St Ives calmer, more relaxed and that is priceless in today’s society. I am very thankful that the owner is happy to share her heavenly home with others. Patricia from Cheadle Hulme

It's becoming our annual tradition to spend May Day weekend at Beach Break House!
Located within minutes walk to town and the nearest beach, the house offers all the modern commodities expected for holiday or weekend getaway place. Well equipped kitchen and a BBQ set in the spacious terrace/garden at the back offer alternative to dining out. Plenty of parking space by the house is a big plus should your party arrive in more than one vehicle. The house was very clean and tidy when we arrived. Back entrance to the garden with water hose allows you to bring your surfing equipment and wash/dry it outside if necessary. It was our second time at Beach Break House and this time we used it as a base camp for shorter, day-long trips to nearby places such as Penzance, Minack Theatre, Sennen, St Michael Mount, Lands End and many, many more. Personally, I would thoroughly recommend Beach Break House and I am already looking forward to coming back again next year.

Perfect modern house with views on Porthmeor beach
The house is conveniently located midway between Porthmeor beach and the town which are both a 3min walk away. The furnishing is to high standard with a tasteful at-the-sea decor. There is plenty of space for a family or a group of friends with one double bed, three single beds, and two bathrooms. There is a terrace in front of the house and a practical garden at the back to hang/wash wetsuits and do a BBQ. Keeping the best for the end, being on the hilltop, the house as a magnificent view of Porthmeor beach which would keep on mezmerising us, day and night.

Ideal house and perfect location
We have been to St Ives for the last 10 years and this property was the best we have had the pleasure of staying in. In terms of location, the house is situated a few roads back from the popular Porthmeor beach, with the much added value of guaranteed parking and access which doesn’t require a fiddly trip through a confusing town road layout (as per most Cornish towns not originally designed for traffic!). The house itself is decorated to a high standard, feeling more like someone’s home rather than a blank looking rental house. We felt immediately at home and enjoyed the fantastic modern facilities. Travelling with 2 young children, we made good use of the washing machine and tumble dryer. We can’t recommend this house enough!
