  • "Perfect apartment and idyllic location."

    We totally enjoyed a much needed getaway. Immaculately clean and well equipped apartment.We loved the outdoor space .We moved the patio chair set from the courtyard to the main patio ( moved it back on departure ! ) We sat out most evenings enjoying the view with a glass of wine . My grandson played on the grass area , we all loved the trains. Comfortable walk into St Ives but not with a 4 year old’s tired legs so the few minutes on the train worked so well . Carbis bay beach is beautiful and a 4 minute walk .Porthminster beach and Porthminster cafe/ restaurant were so easily accessible by train. The week whizzed by and we weren’t ready to go home . Highly recommend this property and we would like to re book .

    Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay so much and would highly recommend staying to other people. We are looking forward to welcoming you back soon! Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Living area and view was amazing."

    The bedrooms let it down, the bedding,towels and pillows in particular were grubby. Extraction fan in bathroom was reported on the Monday as not working and when we left on Saturday was still not fixed.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are saddened to hear that not everything was up to standard for your stay. We have passed your comments on to all the relevant departments to ensure these things are rectified. Again, we apologise and hope to get the opportunity to welcome you back in the future.

  • "Stunning view from a beautiful apartment."

    Very well equipped, lots of extra things that you don’t often get in a holiday cottage, example China coffee and tea service and tv,s in both bedrooms. I did find the bed in the main bedroom very soft but sure it would suit most people. There was a seating area outside but only a rattan sofa and chair , I would like to have had a table and chairs so I could eat a meal outside. In the photo it does show this but must have changed recently.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you had such a lovely stay! We have taken on board your comments and will endeavor to update the website to reflect the property accurately, thank you for bringing this to our attention. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "The property was a delight to stay in."

    The view from the living room is one I would never tire of. The property was clean and spacious with everything we needed for our stay and in a superb location. Unfortunately there was scaffolding up on our arrival which the owners had warned about as soon as they were aware and which was removed as soon as work was complete so did not affect our stay in the slightest. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Thank you for taking the time to submit your positive feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Kindest Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

    Clean with excellent facilities which we used to eat in on several occasions. Also, sat in the comfortable lounge area watching seals in the bay. Well definitely return.

  • "Have stayed at Gwen Marten (different flat) previously so expectations were high."

    Excellent views, top class accommodation and facilities although couldn’t switch on some of the radiators. TV was good and internet connection was good. The binoculars in the flat were only ok - a telescope might be better. Overall would highly recommend this accommodation!!

  • ""We stayed here first week of July 2019 and as soon as we walked in through to that view we were hooked - it was exactly as it was on the booking page, but this was now live and as perfect a view as it could be - we watched the sea change colour so many times, day through to night, it was so easy to find and the perfect location to explore from, beautifully looked after, comfortable and I don't think we have ever slept so well on a holiday, the welcome pack was such a lovely touch and very much appreciated."

    Can't wait to come back again, best 'staycation' location in Cornwall."

    Ocean edge was perfect. Great location handy for the train to St Ives and what a view - it doesn't disappoint. The apartment is well equipped, very clean and the housekeeper met us as arranged to show us around.

  • ""We had an absolutely wonderful holiday in the Oceans Edge apartment."

    The view was breathtaking! Perfect for our needs, it's well equipped and very comfortable. It was beautifully clean. St Ives is the perfect autumn break for us with a family with two teenagers and a toddler. There is something for everyone. We loved being a stones throw away from Carbis Bay Beach, which whatever the weather or time of day, is always beautiful. We enjoyed surfing and super dooper hot chocolates at the Sunset Surf Cafe at Gwithian Beach, Go Karting just outside of Hayle was great too. The drive to New Quay is not too far and we all had a great afternoon at the Sealife Centre. We enjoyed meals in St Ives at Oceans Grill, and Blas Burger. Being so close to the train station was great, saving us the challenges of parking (and meaning we could both have a glass if wine!)." B. Davis

  • ""We had a wonderful stay in Ocean Edge."

    It absolutely lived up to our expectations and of course the position capturing the view of the bay was addictive. It had everything we needed and I was delighted it was immaculately clean. We did love Kynance cove and will return there. We also ate twice at Onshore cafe in St Ives with our two boys which we found very pleasant and ideal food for kids and adults alike. The seafood was delicious." D. Long

  • ""This was our first visit to St Ives and definitely will not be the last."

    We had a lovely week and Ocean Edge was a great apartment. It is modern, tastefully furnished, clean, has absolutely everything you could need, a wonderful power shower ! and a view you could never tire of - wonderful. We visited Land's End which was worth a visit to say you've done it and St Michaels Mount which was wonderful. St Ives was great and we dined in the Harbour Fish and Chip restaurant and the burger place (can't remember name?) which were both very good. We walked a couple of the easy coastal walks and the scenery is breathtaking so this is a must. " P. Ball

    TestimonialApr 2015

  • ""We had a really wonderful week in Ocean Edge."

    It is a beautifully appointed apartment with everything we needed (and more!). The view across the bay was stunning and we really appreciated the patio area, particularly at the end of the day when it caught the late afternoon and evening sun. We ate out a couple of times (La Casita and Porthminster Beach - which were both very enjoyable) but the view from the apartment just couldn't be beaten and we loved dining in too. Walking into St Ives along the coastal path; strolling across Porthkidney Beach; parking over at Godrevy, having breakfast in the beach cafe and walking it off along the beach; relaxing on Carbis Beach enjoying the sun all contributed to a much needed and very welcome break."

The property

The aptly named Ocean Edge sits on a cliff at Gwel Marten apartments overlooking Carbis Bay.

Just a short walk from the award-winning blue flag beach and boasting amazing panoramic sea views across St Ives bay.

This exquisite ground floor luxury apartment sleeps four in two comfortable bedrooms, making it a first choice for a relaxing family holiday.

Floor to ceiling windows in the sitting area offer one of the most beautiful views of St Ives Bay.

Open the patio doors and let in the Cornish air.

Relax into the large corner sofa which comfortably seats six and is ideally positioned for watching dolphins playing in the surf with the binoculars provided.

Alternatively, if you can take your eyes off the view, enjoy the entertainment on the TV with Freeview and DVD.

The dining area forms part of the open plan living area and is ideally positioned opposite the kitchen.

A large oak table with six cream leather seats is provided, a large window looks to the side of the property, allowing additional light to flood in.

A large island unit takes centre stage, with three cream leather bar stools, of the open plan modern kitchen.

It’s well appointed, enjoys a sea view and has everything you need including a wine cooler.

Both bedrooms are separated from the rest of the living accommodation by double doors.

This is a bonus if you or your children want an early night without being disturbed by others in the living room.

The master bedroom has a sumptuously made king size bed, the second room is a twin.

Both peaceful bedrooms are located at the rear with a large window overlooking the courtyard.

The large bathroom of Ocean Edge boasts a freestanding double end bath.

Enjoy spending time soaking in the bubbles or for speed there is a large walk in shower.

A bistro table with four chairs can be found in the suntrap rear courtyard.

The tranquil sea facing terrace is accessed via six steps down from the living area patio door.

The views from the terrace are utterly stunning.

A table, four chairs and parasol are provided, a perfect setting for dining alfresco with the ocean as a backdrop.

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 the wonderful expanse of sand at Porthkidney and Hayle in the other.

Or save tired legs and jump on the nearby scenic railway to reach St Ives and its surrounding area.

The journey is truly breath-taking.

It your looking for a luxury hideaway on the edge of the Cornish Ocean then you’ve found the right place.

We don’t think you’ll want to leave.

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.
