A south facing, town centre studio apartment, perfectly located in the heart of Hugh Town, having the benefit of direct beach access. This stylish apartment has recently been comprehensively and thoughtfully reconfigured & refurbished, making it an ideal base for a couple or single traveller to enjoy our lovely islands.

The property comprises studio room with kitchen /dining area, and shower room. Small, but perfectly formed!

Sadly dogs are not allowed.

Minnehaha has been rated Three Star Gold Award by Visit England.



Originally a substantial granite-built guest house, Smugglers Ride was converted into apartments in the late 1980’s. The property occupies an enviable position fronting Town Beach, centrally located within Hugh Town, the “capital” of St Mary’s, and therefore close to all the shops, restaurants, banks, Post Office, harbour and other amenities on offer.

Comprehensively refurbished a short time ago, Minnehaha offers thoughtfully designed accommodation and interesting design details. It comprises a studio room with kitchen/living area and en-suite shower room. 

The kitchen is fitted with an ample range of modern wall and base units in pale grey laminate, with a high gloss laminate worksurface over with inset stainless steel sink unit. Fitted appliances by Bosch include single electric fan oven, ceramic hob with glass splashback, canopy extractor, fridge and freezer. The dining area has a folding dining room table and chairs that store when not in use to save space.

The bedroom area is separated from the living space by a half-height partition, having painted matchboard panelling which is continued along the walls. The built-in double bed has integral storage under, with twin chrome bedhead spotlights above. Further storage is provided by two double wardrobes and one single wardrobe. Oak door opening via two steps up to a shower room fitted with a modern suite comprising back to wall wc, vanity wash hand basin with storage beneath and to the side, and a fully-glazed shower cubicle fitted with thermostatic mixer shower, illuminated mirror, chrome heated towel rail, mechanical and natural ventilation.

An internal passage and stairs in Smugglers Ride lead to a small communal courtyard, from where steps lead down onto Town Beach. It is here that guests benefit from the use of a shared laundry room, in common with other apartments, fitted with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Wi-Fi is provided.

A perfect base to explore Scilly for 1 or 2 guests.
