With unbeatable views over St Ives Bay, the beautifully renovated Victorian home of Shun Lee offers truly unique self-catering in St Ives.

The grand house, with a grand past and even grander view, Shun Lee is an exceptional luxury home with unparalleled views over the turquoise harbour of St Ives – views that wrap around the bay and extend all the way up to Godrevy Lighthouse. The garden gate opens onto the South West Coast Path making Porthminster beach only a moments’ walk away. Sleeping up to 14 guests across 7 beautifully-styled bedrooms, Shun Lee is the perfect abode for a truly unforgettable holiday.

Built in 1881, Shun Lee’s original owner and master mariner, William John Paynter, worked off the coast of China, becoming a captain at Jardine Matheson. Paynter took ownership of the brand new tea clipper the ‘Shun Lee’ in 1878, before returning to St Ives to retire and build this grand mansion that he named after his ship.

Bedroom Two with En-suite

The view through tall sash windows over calming blues of the sea and the whites of the breaking waves make for the most restful of rooms.

An en-suite shower room boasts a cascading rainfall showerhead and is finished to the highest quality.

Bedroom Three with En-suite

Echoing luxury seaside living, calming creams and beachy browns adorn this king size bedroom. Soft pendant lights drip from the ceiling, making an early night, entangled in the covers, even cosier.

Activities on your doorstep

There are many great things to do for everyone, right on the doorstep of Shun Lee. The 'Local Area’ page has been designed so that you can have a snapshot to see just what’s available in the immediate locality and a bit further away. Our inclusive concierge team and holiday planners will be able to help you book anything that you want to do during your perfect stay.

Concierge Services

We provide an inclusive concierge service to all our guests staying at any of our luxury holiday homes. Just think of all that time that we can save you making dinner reservations, organising a chef, booking the kids in for surf lessons, or we can just be a resource for the lowdown on everything local!

There is no additional charge for this telephone concierge service and we do not mark up any services that we procure for you. It's our most highly rated and talked about service and if you want us to help organise anything for your stay, just call us for more information.

Additional Housekeeping

We can offer a whole range of additional housekeeper services to suit you and your individual requirements. If you are looking for daily or regular housekeeping during your stay, or perhaps more frequent linen and towel changes, then this can normally be provided by our housekeeping partners.

There will be a local service charge to pay to the housekeeping company although our concierge team can organise this for you. n.b. Some housekeeping companies do not always work on Sundays and have a minimum service time.

Authentic Thai and Indian

Learn to cook … Indian and Thai food in the luxury of your Perfect Stays holiday home. A chef tutor will visit the house with all the necessary ingredients to teach you the tricks of the trade, or work with you on any particular dish you wish to master.

You also cook the food ready for you and the other house guests to enjoy later! Prices start from £75 per person, minimum of two participants although one to one lessons can be agreed.

Babysitting

Babysitting or childcare can be a very important part of a stay, particularly if you want to go to perhaps a great fine dining restaurant or maybe spend the day on non child friendly activities.

We have access to a number of childcare professionals or local babysitters that are close to all our properties. n.b. Due to insurance reasons, we only pass on names and numbers and leave you to make the final decision on who to employ.

Bike Hire

If you don’t want to bring your bikes with you on your stay, we can hire them for you and have them delivered to the house. If you just want to turn up at one location and cycle to another, our cycle hire partner can also deliver and collect them from any location in Cornwall.

There are a whole range of different bikes and accessories that can be hired including bike child seats! All bikes also come with helmets, locks, puncture repair kits, pumps and spare inner tubes.

Board and Kayak Hire

We can source surfboards suitable for all abilities, such as foam boards for beginners. Kayaks are a great way of exploring the incredible coastline and waterways near your holiday home.

The general requirement is that you must be able to swim before you can hire any equipment. We strongly recommend that you always obtain professional lessons before ever taking to the water, which we can also organise for you.

Boat Trips

Whether it’s a private boat charter to enjoy a relaxing afternoon exploring the coastline, a day out at sea to catch some fish for dinner, or a high speed ride on a rib searching for wildlife, we can arrange it for you!

Shun Lee is a magnificent property situated at perhaps one of the best locations in St Ives, close to Porthminster Beach. Tastefully decorated and furnished to a level that would be difficult to surpass, and the panoramic views of St Ives and the Bay are glorious. Ideal for family holidays with bags of space. The bedrooms, bathrooms and en suites are superb, as are the kitchen and living spaces – the cinema provides a comfortable and memorable viewing experience. Once you have stayed here, anything else would be a compromise. Perfect Stays are a pleasure to deal with.
