The property

As you would expect from its name this apartment enjoys views of Carbis Bay.

However, what you may not expect is how breathtaking they are.

Step on to the seaward facing patio from the living area and just wonder at the view across Carbis Bay Beach, across to St Ives and beyond.

Thanks to a clever open plan design this wonderful Cornish vista flows throughout this ground floor apartments sitting and dining area.

Sleeping four in two comfortable bedrooms and perfect for exploring the beautiful coastline on the South West Coast Path or making the most of St Ives, it’s ideal for a family holiday.

Sit back in one of the reclining leather armchairs in the sitting area, gaze through the large bay window at the seaside scenes before you.

You may even spot a seal or dolphins at play, or relax with a glass of wine enjoying the entertainment on the Freeview TV with DVD.

The dining area is adjacent to the sitting area and kitchen great for socialising with the chef.

An oak table with six cream leather dining chairs are positioned to let you enjoy the ocean views.

The kitchen is perfectly placed within the living area adjacent to the dining area with a breakfast bar.

It’s modern fully fitted and well-appointed with everything you need.

Both bedrooms are located overlooking the rear courtyard.

These quiet rooms ensure a peaceful night’s sleep.

The master bedroom has a sumptuous double bed, and the second room is a twin.

The family bathroom has a bath and separate shower enclosure.

A sea facing terrace exclusive for guests is accessed through a door in the sitting area.

There is a table with four chairs for you to enjoy dining alfresco watching the sunset over St Ives while relaxing to the sound of the waves.

The rear enclosed courtyard offers a peaceful retreat with a selection of potted plants, a great place to enjoy a book.

The beautiful communal gardens of Gwel Marten can be accessed from the terrace and are available for all guests to use.

From here you can access the SW coastal path with a 20 mins walk to St Ives in one direction and Porthkidney and Hayle in the other.

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.
