    “Problems with TV and internet.”

    TV needs internet connection which was erratic even after extender fitted after complaint logged. ...

    TV needs internet connection which was erratic even after extender fitted after complaint logged. Visited local office to raise these issues and was informed by a member of staff that "WiFi is complimentary" although WiFi availability is listed as a property feature and one we always check when booking. Cannot fault property view and other facilities but have also realised since booking that your reviews listed on website are all favourable and that any review we leave 'may' be used on your website. Please ensure ALL reviews are listed to make people aware.

If you desire a holiday on the Cornish coast with sea views to relax and inspire you then Golden Heights will delight.

This luxury first floor apartment enjoys panoramic views of one of Cornwall’s most beautiful bays from open plan kitchen, diner & sitting room.

A wall of bay windows in the sitting area frame this picture postcard view across Carbis Bay beach to St Ives and across to the infamous Godrevy Lighthouse, as featured in ‘The Lighthouse No More’ by Virginia Woolf.

Its clever open plan design means whether you’re dining, cooking or relaxing you’ll be able to enjoy the view.

Sleeping four in two comfortable bedrooms and close to the beach and dramatic cliff path walks, its ideal for a family holiday or romantic retreat.

Take a window seat, stretching the width of the room, in the sitting area and enjoy spotting dolphins playing in the surf below.

Alternatively relax on the plush L shaped sofa, seating five, watching the ever changing colours of the ocean or enjoying the entertainment on the Ultra HD 4K Smart TV with Netflix.

The dining area is perfectly positioned within the open plan living & kitchen area, boasting amazing coastal views.

A grand wooden dining table with five chic leather grey chairs let you dine in style.

A well-appointed fully fitted kitchen offers everything you require and more.

Enjoy preparing dinner at the island with the most incredible coastal views.

Both bedrooms are to the rear and are separated from the living area by sliding glass doors.

Ideal if someone wants to sleep while others are still enjoying the living area.

The twin beds may be converted to a huge double bed via zip and link on request.

The beautiful communal gardens of Gwel Marten are available for guests.

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.
