The Cuban Beach Chalet

Chalet -
3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
St Ives, Cornwall, England
The Cuban is a beautiful wooden chalet set in a relaxing and peaceful seaside location. Tucked idyllically in the dunes above the beach at Riviere Towans in St. Ives Bay with wonderful sea views.
With contemporary 'shaker' style furnishings and mellow colour schemes, the chalet oozes style and is an art lover's paradise.
Living accommodation is open plan and spacious, with a well equipped kitchen opening out to the dining area and lounge, all with fantastic views over St. Ives Bay.

Ideally suited for families of up to six, seeking a relaxing seaside retreat literally moments away from the beach and the water's edge.

Free private car parking 20 metres from chalet.

Flowers, a bottle of good Merlot, Maltesers, fudge, a welcome card plus tea, coffee and two pints of milk - all were waiting for our arrival at The Cuban Cabin. That and, of course, the stunning view across the Hayle river estuary to St. Ives....More

Thank you for your kind comments, we do try to provide things that we ourselves would hope for in a holiday chalet: we stay in The Cuban fairly regularly ourselves. It's heartwarming that you appreciated the little touches, thank you.

What a lovely antidote to the hustle and bustle of St Ives. The beach is amazing, the best i have seen in the UK. The views from the kitchen and lounge windows are superb. Nestling in the dunes at Riviera Towans, the Cuban Beach Chalet...More

About the neighbourhood
A stunning 3 mile of golden sandy shoreline is a 2 minute walk from Gwelmor. The view is ever changing with the Cornish light.

Hayle offers lots of fantastic spots including Hayle Estuary, Hayle beach and St. Georges Memorial walk. The surrounding area includes a 15 minute drive to St. Ives (or we highly recommend the train there - it's breath taking!).

Other places to visit include: Penzance, Mousehole (St. Michaels Mount), Falmouth, Gwithian (Godrevy Lighthouse) and many more.

Mr B's in Hayle is THE place for ice cream. Philps is the place for a Cornish pasty and Saunders for Fish N' Chips! There's lovely places to eat: Red River Inn, Buck Harry's Cali Style, Antoninis (italian).
Getting around
You can get the train to St. Erth and get a taxi to the chalet if you are with out a car. But we do recommend a car to get around as our chalets are close to the beach and out of the town.

Lidl is 30 minute walk/5 minute drive. There is a small shop a 5 minute walk down the road.

Asda and Marks & Specer is 5 minute drive.
Car advised
