  • Mrs Reynolds

    “We have holidayed at compass point for the past 5 years excluding last year due to covid.”

    This is our 2nd stay at Golva and superb as always, great facilities and beautiful views. Looking at next years prices for the same duration we can see your prices have increased highly therefore with this in mind and our bad experience at Carbis beach restaurant this year it feels like Carbis Bay is pricing itself out of the market for some which is a shame as so beautiful.

This property is part of the Carbis Bay Holidays collection.
Escape to a luxury holiday cottage nudging the Cornish coast. Carbis Bay Holidays collection of stylish self-catering accommodation ranges from penthouse apartments overlooking the white-sand beaches of St Ives, to designer country homes a pebble’s throw from the coast.

Compass Point

Compass Point is a prestigious development of purpose-built luxury apartments, situated in a prime position on the seaward side of Carbis Bay, with the majority of properties offering stunning views of the sea and surrounding coastline.

The property

Looking at the stunning view from the bay windows of the living area of this luxury first floor apartment you will understand why Golva takes its name from the Cornish word for ‘Lookout’.

Set on the cliffs overlooking one of Cornwall’s most beautiful bays and beaches, Carbis Bay, many an hour can be enjoyed watching boats and nature at play.

The owners have even supplied binoculars.

Sleeping four in two comfortable bedrooms, it’s ideal for a young family or couple after a romantic coastal escape.

Look out of the bay windows in the sitting area and the panoramic view will take your breath away, stretching from St Ives Bay in one direction to Godrevy Lighthouse in the other.

Take a seat in one of the two comfy sofas and see if you can spot dolphins playing in the bay or enjoy the fabulous entertainment on the smart TV with full Sky package including Movies and Sport.

A table, comfortably seating four, is perfectly positioned in the dining area to enjoy the wonderful Cornish vista at mealtimes.

Golva benefits from a modern fitted rear kitchen with NEFF built in appliances.

It’s a bright space with natural light from the window overlooking the well-maintained courtyard area of Compass Point.

The master en-suite bedroom enjoys the same spectacular views as the sitting area.

Relax on the sumptuously dressed king size bed and after a good night’s sleep wake up refreshed enjoying the views of the breath-taking Cornish coast.

The second bedroom of Golva is a twin with a Juliet balcony.

Located at the rear, this quiet room will ensure you sleep well.

There is a communal terrace for guests’ to enjoy the panoramic sea views.

Two folding chairs are provided within the apartment for your use.

Access to the SW Coastal path and a scenic railway to St Ives and its surrounding area are nearby.

You’ll love the short, picturesque journey along the coast to the beautiful Cornish fishing village.

When you’re on lookout at Golva, every day of your holiday promises to offer you a new delightful sight to discover and remember for a lifetime.

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.
