Tate Reach is a magnificent, granite faced, detached house positioned just behind the Tate St Ives and Porthmeor beach. The names of both of the apartments were inspired by two famous artists who had great connections with St Ives.
Whistler is named after the famous American born, British based artist ‘James Whistler’ who visited St Ives in April-May 1884 and stayed in nearby Barnoon Terrace. Wallis is of course named after the well renowned local naïve artist ‘Alfred Wallis’, who’s progressive work, was appreciated by other St Ives artist colony greats such as Ben Nicholson and Kit Wood.

"This property is superb.
Having stayed all over St Ives the past 30 years these were the best views we have ever had.
The apartment is well equipped and comfortable for a holiday stay.
Just a short walk from both the town / harbour and Porthmeor beech but far enough away to be quiet.
We were particularly impressed with the recycling facilities having found these to be generally lacking in St Ives and the outside tap for washing off the sand.
We have already booked this apartment again for 2020 and would highly recommend it.
Thanks for the friendly welcome and goodies, we did enjoy them. The dog very much appreciated her mackerel bites. What a superb apartment with the most amazing views and facilities. Have already booked again for next year! See you then
Our 2nd stay here and as special as our 1st visit! We celebrated a birthday and mothers day on Sunday & the chocolates where a nice touch! We also enjoyed the scones, apple juice, tulips etc. The firehouse is our fabourite restaurant and we have eaten there several nights. Until next year!
We have had a wonderful week here in St Ives. The apartment is everything we could ask for. Thank you so much for the goodies! We loved the view! Don't think you could beat this anywhere in St Ives! We've had lots of lovely meals out. The Rum and Crab shack did a particularly good steak. The beach combet cafe was fabulous for breakfast as well.
Sad to go home but know we will come back! Thanks again
