The property

This stylish purpose built apartment is set into the hillside and overlooks one of Cornwall’s premier beaches and across to iconic St Ives Harbour.

This two level apartment which is set to the rear of the building is thoroughly modern and is a superb escape as a romantic retreat or a family getaway.

The feature gallery bedroom has character and is built into the eaves (limited headroom) and has fabulous views over the bay.

The twin room (which can become a double upon request) is on the ground floor also enjoys a sea view.

Both the kitchen and bathroom are smart and chic and the calming blue and white decoration of the living room with dining table complement the sea views from the small balcony.

To the front of the property is a paved area - ideal for relaxing with a glass of something chilled.

There is a large shared sun terrace too - perfect for watching the sunset.From Carbis Bay, St Ives is a mere 20 minute walk along the coastal path - or if you prefer, a short ride on the single carriage train.

St Ives offers an eclectic mix of bijou shops, galleries - The Tate and Barbara Hepworth Museum well worth a visit- as well as pubs, restaurants, cafes, and fabulous beach as well as the much photographed dinky harbour.

Carbis Bay beach is just a three minute walk away and has a mile long stretch of sand, Gwithian beach has three miles of golden sands and is perfect for some surfing.

About the location


St Ives 2 miles ; Hayle 3.5 miles ; Penzance 8.5 miles

Just a short drive from iconic St Ives, the seaside town of Carbis Bay is best-known for its beautiful stretch of pure white sand. With turquoise waters and sheltered conditions, the beach feels almost subtropical and is the perfect spot for a good old-fashioned day by the sea. The beach is also home to the Ocean Sports Centre, so if sunbathing is not really your thing, why not hire a kayak or SUP and get out on the water instead. Or why not treat yourself to a Spa day at the boutique hotel which overlooks the beach and has a fabulous terrace where cocktails can be enjoyed in the Cornish sunshine? Carbis Bay has a small range of local shops and restaurants as well as a fish & chip takeaway and railway branchline. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country.
