The property

Sipping a glass of wine watching the mesmerising Cornish light change over the glistening sea from this luxury escape is truly magical.

Just a short stroll from the beach, cliff path walks and a scenic railway, this reverse level semi-detached villa has elevated views across Carbis Bay.

Sleeping five in three comfortable rooms, with sea views from most, it’s idyllic for a family break.

A first floor seaward facing glass balcony wraps around the villa.

Open the French doors to the open plan living area, step outside and the view will take your breath away.

This wonderful vista stretches across Carbis Bay and out to St Ives.

Inside, a wall of windows frames this picture postcard scene and luxury “Amtico” oak flooring flows throughout an open plan living area, comprising of a kitchen, dining, and sitting area, which all benefit from the sea views.

Relax on the L-shaped sofa watching the ever-changing colours of the ocean or enjoy the entertainment on the 50″ Plasma TV with full Sky package including Movies and Sport.

A dining area, within the living area, comfortably seats eight around a large dining table.

A modern designer kitchen with a centre island and granite worktops, is well-appointed with everything any chef could desire.

All the bedrooms are on the ground floor.

The master en-suite bedroom enjoys a luxurious king size bed and the second is fitted with twin beds, which can be made up as a super king on request.

The third bedroom of Portside is fitted with a single 3ft bed.

A ground floor terrace, accessed from the second bedroom, extends around the house to the side of the third bedroom.

A wonderful spot to relax with a book.

A first floor seaward facing glass fronted balcony with uninterrupted panoramic bay views is possibly the most stunning feature.

Accessed from the open plan living area it is ideal for dining alfresco or to enjoy watching the sun set over St Ives.

Outdoor furniture is provided for your comfort.

If you can pull yourself away from Portside, it’s only a three minutes’ walk to the blue flag waters of Carbis Bay beach, with access to the SW coast path.

This dramatic cliff side adventure takes you to St Ives, approx. 20 mins, in one direction and the golden sands of Gwithian in the other.

Alternatively, hop on the scenic railway for a breath-taking coastal journey to St Ives and its surrounding area.

After a holiday at Portside you will be asking, is one week enough?

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.
