And with coastal walks and cool cafés to hand as well, Surf Six makes the perfect show-stopping retreat.
Surf Six provides a unique experience for this area and you will be blown away by the chalet’s coastal chic. The indoor and outdoor features are geared to ensure you take advantage of its amazing location, a place of sunsets, surf and sea. The range of bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces also means the home offers very flexible accommodation for your family or group.
Inside Surf Six
Approaching via a road through the san dunes you arrive at Surf Six, located near the legendary Sunset Surf Café. It’s one of a cluster of privately owned and unique beach houses in this location, ranging from traditional ‘chalets’ to stylish beach-side residences. You have wide double gates and a large parking area behind the property. You’ll enter Surf Six into a nice spacious hallway with storage space for all your hats, coats and boots plus seating. Beyond this is the open plan living/kitchen/dining area, decorated with cool coastal art and hanging industrial lighting. This is the sociable hub for your group to spend time together. There are sea glimpses through two pairs of French doors, which also bathes the room in light at all times of the year. You’ll find a large L-shaped sofa, plus a 40” TV and a Sonos system for your favourite sounds. The kitchen has handmade units and the dining area is generously spacious for shared meals together. Upstairs is an additional living with 180° views of the sea (and Godrevy Lighthouse), a toasty wood burner and lots of seating; two sofas plus large floor cushions and a large revolving armchair. Here there is also a vintage games console with scores of retro delights for you to enjoy including Pac-Man, Space Invaders and many more.
The sleeping accommodation and bathrooms are clustered at each end of the property, separated by the living area. This arrangement may be particularly suitable for two families sharing. At one end you have the stunning principal bedroom with a double bed, luxurious open en-suite wet-room with a decadent in-room bath, spacious walk-in shower , and a connecting WC. At this end of the property is also the second double room, plus a bathroom with shower and toilet. Next to the principal bedroom is the après surf room for rinsing off after time in the sea, with a monsoon shower, another freestanding bath and outdoor access through French doors.
At the other end of the property, beyond the living area, you’ll find further bedrooms for up to six more guests, with a double bedroom and two single rooms each with a trundle bed so that these rooms can be made to sleep two. There is also a lovely fully tiled family bathroom, with a bath and shower.
The garden and surrounding areas
Surf Six is fully detached and stands in its own private garden, which is large and surrounds the beach house on all sides. To the front you have a lawn, and spacious decking area with festival lighting and a dining table for all to enjoy tasty al fresco evenings. For a relaxed surfer vibe, you also have a barbecue and laid-back seating area for nine people. To the back of the home you have a table tennis table for the competitive people in your group, and two après-surf showers. There is also ample parking for three or more cars.
The beach is around 100m from your gate. On the way you’ll pass Sunset Surf, a great place for a coffee, a snack or a complete meal — as well as doubling up as a well-stocked surf shop. If you wanted to try your hands and feet at surfing, the experts at Global Boarders will show you the way of the waves. Gwithian beach is stunning, and it forms one end of three miles of clean tide-washed sand stretching all the way to the Hayle Estuary. Across the bay the sun will set over the twinkling lights of St Ives and Carbis Bay. Gwithian beach is lifeguarded in summer and offers everything beach lovers could wish for, from pumping surf to baby-friendly rockpools. The miles of marram-covered sand dunes (the “Towans”) are dog friendly at all times and the South West Coast Path runs for as far as your legs will carry you in either direction.
Things we love
Surf Six is a well-loved family home that has been styled and appointed for an epic beach holiday, so there’s plenty to love about it. Gwithian is a place you will instantly fall for, a beautifully rural location that’s well connected to stunning places like St Ives, Mount’s Bay and even the wilds of west Cornwall. If you don’t feel like traveling far, you have plenty to do on your doorstep whatever the weather; including relaxing on three miles of sandy beach, playing in the epic surf, wandering the endless dune-scape or rambling the nearby rugged coastline. We also know that big groups like to do different things, so you will find Gwithian has everything suit all moods and ages.
And not forgetting the stellar Surf Six itself. After busy days out, you will find the beach chalet a welcoming space to wind down in. The range of inside and outdoor spaces allows your group to spend time together, whilst providing lots of quiet corners for some guests to get some well-deserved “me time”. The retreat has also been geared to those searching for salt and sand, so you will get full use of the two outdoor surf showers and the huge pre/post surf room. With coastal and surf vibes aplenty, Surf Six was made for full-tilt relaxation where the worries of the world will wash away with the tide.
