  • "Been around the world and without doubt this has been the best apartment we have ever stayed at."

    It was superb in all aspects, very very clean, roomy, comfortable, fully equipped with every device one could want. Well organised arrival with explicit instructions on obtaining keys to enter the building & apartment & to open the powered gate for parking. The views were fantastic , use of a lovely garden overlooking Carbis Bay. Saying it was perfect doesn't do it justice. It was exceptional. J & S Hill

  • "Fabulous location and view."

    Well facilitated property and very clean. Few too many keys to fiddle around with and switching all electrics on and off was a bit annoying but overall a nice spacious apartment.

  • "Nice apartment, would use again, a nice touch was leaving tea, coffee, sugar, and milk and some stuff, for the bathroom."

    The biggest drawback was that we couldn’t get into the accommodation until 3pm and trying to find parking was impossible. If we could have got in sooner it would have been better. Lovely sea side view and was great for the local train station to get into ST Ives. Nice and quiet at night, just a good all round location.

  • "Absolutely fantastic stay!"

    Views are actually don't do them justice. Missing looking out the window while eating breakfast already. The binoculars provided were a brilliant touch, my kids loved looking out to see the lighthouse and all the boats. Location is perfect, with Carbis Bay only a stone's throw away and the train station ideal to access St Ives super quickly. Would 100% stay here again and I've already sent the link to the apartment to a few friends, as I had so many questions about it from photos I've taken the last week. Just a couple of tiny suggestions for future people staying.... there were dishwasher tablets but no washing up liquid provided, not a major issue but needed it as only 4 of us there so wouldn't use the dishwasher daily. Also, could do with some pint glasses and at least one extra plastic cup for the kids (was only 1 in cupboard). Extra bin bags would also be a good idea. Despite these tiny things I was blown away by the facilities and cleanliness at the apartment. Also a fab touch having milk, tea, coffee, sugar and kitchen roll provided. Everything was easy to use and plenty of great instructions for appliances (e.g. washing machine and dishwasher). My kids want to sell our house and live in your holiday home lol. Thanks again for a marvellous stay

  • "The property was very comfortable and well situated with excellent views of Carbis Bay."

    A few basic things let it down - three bulbs were not working - two in the lounge and one in the double room ensuite bathroom. A clock on the mantlepiece was not working - it had no battery - either get a battery or supply a clock that works ! A couple of the magazines about Cornwall in the lounge were 5 years old - it can't be difficult to get some up to date information. The windows needed a good clean and also not enough toilet rolls were provided, we had to go and buy some. Finally the outside bin we were instructed to use was not numbered (in fact none of the bins were numbered). Nothing major, however when paying £1,639 for a weekly rental I expect better!

  • "Meridian is a fantastic 2 bedroomed apartment with masses of space and has everything you could possibly need for the perfect holiday."

    We absolutely loved our time in Meridian and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Carbis bay / St Ives in Cornwall.

  • "A very spacious and well-appointed apartment with beautiful views."

    Very well decorated throughout with a well-equipped kitchen. Instructions for the bins/recycling was lacking. There were no numbers on the bins and there were only seven bins for eight apartments (Ours was number 8!). It would have been useful to know the bin collection day and what could be recycled and where to put it.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your time at Meridian. The bins are located in the car parking area at the property and are now marked clearly for the property. We are very sorry that you had issues with this and we would have been happy to answer any questions regarding bin collection that you may have had. Property Owner

  • "Yes - not enough Crockery available for a family of four, not enough for 2 meal times without having to wash up in between."

    Thank you for your feedback, we do hope you enjoyed your time at Meridian. We have taken your comments on board and have purchased more crockery for the property. Property Owner

The property

Facing one-mile northeast of St Ives, in subtropical splendour is Carbis Bay, one of Cornwall’s best kept secrets, and here you will find Meridian, a lovely spacious top floor apartment overlooking the sea.

Meridian can sleep up to four people, so this property is a great place for a small family or a group of friends, with the open-plan living affording you the room to relax as the sea air drifts in through the velux windows.

On entering the property there is a spacious hallway, leading to the dining area containing a gorgeous solid wood table big enough for all the party and some visiting friends to sit round for a meal, before taking your glass of wine over to the sitting area where you can sink into the sofas and continue the conversation.

Pile up those plates and take them into the kitchen where you can make use of the dishwasher, along with many other modern appliances like the electric oven, gas hob and washing machine, making this an attractive and well-equipped kitchen, decorated in a traditional style.

All throughout the property there are sloping ceilings and velux windows, showering the natural light in, and this continues to the other side of the apartment where the bedrooms and bathrooms can be found.

There is a king-size bedroom with en-suite shower room so mum and dad can definitely take this one, with a twin room across the way with a Jack-and-Jill entrance to the shower room.

There are sea views from the windows in the sitting area, and this property also benefits from an allocated parking space for one car in the gated development, so you can leave the car safely behind while you explore the shores of Cornwall.

Carbis Bay is one of the best family beaches in Cornwall due to the lack of surf and relatively calm waters, so you can happily take your toddlers to the beach for a swim, and it even has facilities right on the beachfront.

Take the train from Carbis Bay over to St Ives, and you will enjoy one of the most beautiful train journeys you’ve ever had, and arrive at this busy fishing port that is home to an array of gorgeous sandy beaches that surround the town.

St Ives is home to the Tate Gallery for those art lovers, as well as the Church of St Ia which dominates the St Ives skyline, built in the 15th century, and which contains the Madonna and Child carving by the well-known sculptor Barbara Hepworth, created in memory of her son.

Make Meridian your family getaway, enjoying the fantastic seafront location and easy links to St Ives.

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.
