The cosy lounge of Sandpiper has a luxurious feel, with its "living-flame" coal effect gas fire, marble hearth, genuine beech surround and modern, clean line furnishings. Double doors lead from the lounge to the elegant conservatory where the views over St. Ives bay are even more impressive. Whatever activity you choose to do, whether it's a day on the beach or a long, invigorating walk, you will be able to return, curl up and relax on one of the double seater sofas watching wide-screen TV with Sky and Blu-ray disc player.
There is an information folder covering the many varied attractions of St. Ives and the surrounding area. In it, amongst other things, you'll find Ordnance Survey maps, coastal walks, pub and restaurant guides as well as a "Visitors" section for you to pass on recommendations and advice to our future guests.

The property benefits from a separate dining room, comfortably seating four people around a glass-topped dining table to add that extra touch of class. Here you can relax and enjoy your dinner in style. French doors lead onto a feature balcony giving the room a fresh, airy feel. There is also a useful cabinet provided in which there is a selection of games, books, jigsaws, videos and DVDs for all ages.
If you fancy a night off from cooking, there are a number of good restaurants and pubs in and around the Carbis Bay area. Not least of which are the several esteemed 'award winning' dining venues in St. Ives itself - try catching the train, services run until late. Alternatively, many of the nearby restaurants offer a take-away service.
The conservatory is one of the features that makes the apartment so special. Double doors lead from the lounge to the conservatory where you can sit and watch the waves whatever season you choose to visit Sandpiper. It is the ideal spot to relax, either in the morning with a cappuccino and a book or in the evening with a glass of champagne watching the sunset. The conservatory has 4 comfy chairs and an attractive glass-topped table. French doors lead from the conservatory onto the large, private terrace.
The light and airy kitchen is over fourteen feet long and is lined on both sides with top of the range fully-fitted units. At the end of the kitchen, French doors open out on to the spacious terrace. As you'd expect, a full range of integrated appliances is provided including fridge/freezer, NEFF oven with separate gas hob, washer/dryer, dishwasher and even waste disposal unit. Not forgetting the toaster, kettle, microwave and coffee machine with its espresso and cappuccino functions. Enjoy playing!!
On holiday, of course, it's not just the food. What better way to relax in the evening than with a bottle of pink champagne on ice, watching the scenery from the conservatory or terrace and the ever-changing colours of the sunset. Scenery, sunsets, champagne glasses and 'Moet' ice bucket provided - although you will need to bring your own champagne!!
The master bedroom is over eighteen feet long and has far reaching views over St. Ives bay. There is plenty of storage space with a large wardrobe, a chest of drawers and bedside cabinets.

Spoil yourself - you are on holiday!!
