Tucked away in the dunes of Gwithian Towans and boasting undisturbed views across St Ives Bay, the distinguished, dog-friendly ‘Luz’ is a modern beach chalet sleeping 7, which balances beautifully rustic interiors with top spec, modern details.
Spread across two floors, when entering ‘Luz’, you’re welcomed by an abundance of natural coastal light flowing throughout the property. To your right is one of three bedrooms, containing twin beds. Adjacent you will find a small utility room and a family bathroom with a walk in shower. At the end of the hallway is the captivating open-plan living, dining and kitchen area; displaying the ever-changing views of St Ives Bay.
The kitchen is dressed in a mixture of wood details, coastal blues and is equipped with top of the range appliances including a sage coffee machine and a full height 50/50 fridge freezer. The living area features two stylish leather sofas, a large Smart TV, and a freestanding wood burner to keep the chalet cosy during the colder months. The dining area has a large rustic table with bench seating for up to eight and benefits from outstanding views of Godrevy lighthouse through sliding patio doors onto the decking area.
The principle bedroom is also situated on the bottom floor and has direct access to the garden and decking with its own views of the ocean. With a king sized bed and rustic wooden decor, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy the view of the surfers from the comfort of this coastal home. This bedroom also has an en-suite, which matches the family bathroom’s eclectic mix of dramatic tiles and elegant gold detailing.
Up the stairs in the living area brings you to an open plan room with white vaulted ceilings and two large windows at either end to soak in the light. At one end of the room contains three single beds; perfect for younger members of the family, but also full-sized for adults. At the other end of the room you will find a comfortable seating area with bean bags, a sofa and armchair positioned to enjoy hours of watching the waves roll in.
You can enter Luz through the rear of the property where there’s also private parking for one car. To the left of the property is a pathway (where an outdoor shower is located) leading toward the front of the property. At the front of Luz is a decking, which stretches across the chalet with a grassy area in front. You’ll be welcomed by the all-encompassing and uninterrupted views from St Ives Bay to Godrevy lighthouse, a perfect spot for those sundowner drinks and summer barbeques – you have front-row views of some of the best sunsets in Cornwall.
Things we love
Luz is in a prime position to enjoy hours of wave-watching, and like the rest of our Gwithian retreats, miles of golden sand is seconds away. Life-guarded in the main holiday season, Gwithian and Godrevy boast miles of sand, swimmable rockpools and sea, which are great for children, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, sun-worshipping and storm-watching. The “Towans” are also dog friendly at all times, which is why the outdoor shower to wash away the day comes in so handy!
Although there’s a range of coastal cafes on your doorstep, this property has been lovingly designed and finished to have everything you need, evident in its modern, contemporary interiors and top-spec appliances. With a private garden and decking facing the views, it really is the property for all seasons and you’re certainly in for a memorable Cornish holiday when staying in this beautiful beach chalet.
