    “"Another great week in Kara at Galinas Point.”

    It really is a great apartment with everything you need to have a great time, especially when you visit out of season as we do in both Spring and Autumn.

    It really is a great apartment with everything you need to have a great time, especially when you visit out of season as we do in both Spring and Autumn. Special mention to Carolyn of Carbis Bay for the friendly and helpful way she dealt with our late arrival in the rain! Highly recommended."

Gallinas Point

Gallinas Point Apartments are perched above St Ives town with lovely views across Porthminster Beach and beyond to Godrevy Lighthouse and offer luxury self catering with secure parking.

The property

Set close to the centre of St Ives, at Gallinas Point, this two-bedroom, first floor apartment, enjoys a south facing balcony, with breath-taking sea views, St Ives scenic railway, pretty harbour, shops and the beautiful Porthminster Beach are just a short stroll from the apartment.

Sleeping four plus an infant, it’s an ideal base for a young family or couple wishing to enjoy St Ives many attractions and beaches.

The kitchen and sitting area forms the open plan living space, which is bathed in natural light from the large glass patio doors, making the whole relaxing space light and airy, themed in a calming neutral palette, set the mood lighting, cosy up on the contemporary leather sofa or comfy chairs, comfortably seating four, and enjoy the entertainment on the large television with full Sky package, including cinema and sports, a seaward facing balcony can be accessed through the patio doors, with stunning views across St Ives bay. A separate dining room is conveniently placed off the kitchen, a glass top table and four stylish chairs offer a lovely setting for family meals or entertaining.

The contemporary open plan kitchen sits within the living area, its well-appointed with graphite units and beautiful granite effect worktops, with two stools for guests to socialise with the chef, it has everything you need for your stay, a separate utility room off the hallway houses a washer/dryer.

Two comfortable bedrooms allow you the choice of a master king sized room or twin, the bonus of the first room is its direct access to a seaward facing decked balcony, slide open the doors and enjoy breakfast in the sun with the ocean as your backdrop, this room also features an en-suite with enclosed shower, the twin room is conveniently located adjacent to the family bathroom, Sky TV is linked to this room via the living room, both bedrooms offer beautifully dressed beds in crisp cotton linen and offer plenty of storage space.

A family bathroom with a bath and shower over, is adjacent to the second bedroom, after an exhilarating cliffside walk, rejuvenate with a long bath full of bubbles.

The seaward facing covered balcony, accessed via the living area or master bedroom patio doors, enjoys the sun throughout the day, this delightful, decked area is furnished with two bistro tables and four chairs for dining alfresco, with wonderful bay views.

St Ives has a variety of cafes and restaurants if you fancy a night out, including the award winning Porthminster Beach café, set right on the beach and just a short walk from Kara, the town is centred around a working harbour which supplies a daily catch of fresh sea food, it’s pretty cobbled streets are filled with independent shops and art galleries, St Ives unique light has inspired artists worldwide some of the more famous have their work celebrated in its largest gallery, Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden.

The South West Coast Path is a wonderful cliffside walk around the county, accessed nearby, locally you can head towards Zenor or Carbis Bay and Hayle Estuary in the other direction, Carbis Bay Beach is a glorious stretch of golden sand with turquoise water lapping its shores, this lifeguarded beach at peak times is wonderful for enjoying water sports, for a relaxing return journey to St Ives hop on the scenic railway, it runs along the coast with sea views all the way. For a little adventure experience the canopy walkway across the top of the rainforest at the Eden Project, or discover the Lost Garden of Heligan, both are near St Austell, or venture out to the magical castle at low tide along the causeway to St Michaels Mount, near Penzance, for something more dramatic take in a show at Cornwall’s open air theatre, The Minack, cut out of a Cornish cliff with the Atlantic Ocean for a backdrop, near Land’s End, the little ones will enjoy Newquay Zoo or feeding the animals at Paradise Park in Hayle.

This idyllic seaside escape takes its name from the Cornish word for "love", Kara, and we think you’ll fall under its spell and want to visit again and again.

One of Cornwall's prettiest harbour towns, St Ives offers narrow streets, tight-packed cottages nestling around the quayside, the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth museum, fabulous beaches, superb shops, a thriving community of artists, great pubs and restaurants and much more. With its semi Bohemian lifestyle and romantic air, it's easy to see why this is the county's premier holiday resort. The surrounding area has much for the visitor to see and do with abundant wildlife, fabulous coastal walks, top quality surfing and the Celtic mysteries of the Land's End Peninsula are all within easy reach. A superb destination!
