  • "Place was value for money."

    Beds weren't the best but that always seem to be the case when you have memory foam mattress at home. Couldn't get the extractor fan to work in the bathroom? Fantastic view at any time of the year

    Glad you thought Skysail is good value for money. The sea views are wonderful at any time of the year changing all the time. Just to let you know 3 out of the 4 beds were new in July of this year all bought from top suppliers because we like many like a good nights sleep when we and our family and friends stay in Skysail.

  • "The property was exactly as advertised and with all the facilities needed for a family of six."

    We were anxious about staying in an apartment due to potential noise from neighbours (we usually stay in detached properties) but it was quiet and peaceful. Staying at Skysail, meant we hardly used the car:everything was in walking distance- including the train station, beach and pubs; after a full day of exploring, the beds were wonderfully comfy for a great nights sleep.

This contemporary, duplex apartment sits in a prime coastal position in Carbis Bay, Cornwall.

Occupying glorious views over St Ives Bay and just a short walk from the beach, Skysail is a wonderful escape for a family or group of friends looking to experience this beautiful region of Cornwall.

The apartment is arranged over two floors, with a bright and airy open-plan living area on the first floor, complete with a 65” OLED Smart TV with Xbox One and Nintendo Wii, inviting you to settle down and enjoy movie nights together.

Cross over to the kitchen and whip up something delicious, making use of the gas oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and even a dishwasher, so you won’t have to lift a finger when cleaning up!

Move into the inviting bedrooms, with two set on this level, including a king-size with balcony access and a twin, served by a gleaming bathroom with Jacuzzi bath, aiding your relaxation.

Up another flight of stairs leads to the super-king-size, along with a delightful en-suite shower room.

Set out and explore this delightful coastal village renowned for its stunning beach and unique atmosphere, where you will find a plethora of activities to choose from.

Nearby St. Ives offers a selection of tasty eateries and independent shops, and lunch at the oldest pub in St. Ives, The Sloop Pub, is a must, and you can stock up at the Norway Stores.

Those keen walkers can’t miss out on the South West Coastal Path, offering scenic splendour in abundance, or why not take a train journey from Carbis Bay to St Ives, regarded to be one of the finest train journeys in the country?

Further afield, escape to the bustling town of Penzance and explore a number of attractions, from the Jubilee Pool to the historic art deco lido.

All this and more awaits at Skysail.

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 village 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 delightful 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 branch line. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country; St Ives additionally makes for a great day out, with plenty of galleries to explore. The quayside town of Hayle also isn't far and is home to activities for the all the family, including a golf and a wildlife sanctuary. The Godrevy Nature Reserve and Penwith Heritage Coast are also within easy reach from Carbis Bay, providing outdoors and watersports plans with even more activities to partake in, including coasteering and birdwatching. Carbis Bay is truly a wonderful holiday location for those wanting to experience Cornwall's breathtaking coastline.

The Good Housekeeping Bond for this property is £250.
