    “Great house, very clean and views wonderful.”

    Kitchen well equipped. We had problems with the heating as the timer seemed to be set to the wrong times and dates (I know we could have rung you but it was all a bit hectic so we turned radiators on and off). Also it would be great to have recyling facilities or at least a note in the Welcome file to say where we could take it. We ended it carrying it home with us! ...

    Kitchen well equipped. We had problems with the heating as the timer seemed to be set to the wrong times and dates (I know we could have rung you but it was all a bit hectic so we turned radiators on and off). Also it would be great to have recyling facilities or at least a note in the Welcome file to say where we could take it. We ended it carrying it home with us! We never did figure out what the short walk to the beach was! Was it down the road or path to Carbis Bay. We did discover the path down to Porthkidney Beach across the level crossing - good when tide was out thought bit of a scramble. Maybe put a note or two on how to walk to beach in file. But we all had a brill time. Thank you!

    Dear Mrs Taylor, thank you for your great feedback. We are so pleased you all had a brilliant time. Kindest Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

Perfectly perched like a seagull on a Cornish cliff, this luxury Cornish coastal escape celebrates seaside living in style. A panoramic view of endless golden sands, stretching from Godrevy Lighthouse to Carbis Bay Beach, sets the backdrop to almost every room.

Relax into a comfy sofa and gaze through the large bay windows and it’ll feel as if the beach has actually come to you. From this vantage point you can almost feel the sand between your toes or your hair blowing in the sea breeze as you run along the shore line. This is a great space to just take a break and let time stand still while watching the surf roll in. The owners have reflected the Cornish seaside lifestyle throughout the living area with a Cornish miner’s Davy lamp, Artists’ studio light and wooden treasure chest styling the space. As the night draws in, curl up in front of a real log fire or recline with loved ones to enjoy your favourite film on a 50 inch 4K Ultra Smart TV with a 300watt sound bar with Sky Q, plus DVD player. Dining Area The open plan dining and living area is great for entertaining with stunning sea views from everywhere. The whole space is light and bright with excellent use of natural light, which has inspired many famous artists for years in St Ives, flooding in through the roof and bay windows. A ship’s Porthole mirror compliments the nautical theme throughout this space and if you love to entertain, a hand crafted wooden table features as the centre piece, to display your culinary creations. Two large wooden benches and four chairs offer comfortable seating for groups to dine. Games Room / Den If the kids want to escape or just chill-out in-front of a large TV, the Games Room or Den located on the ground floor is ideal. Offering a cinema style 55” 4K ULED TV, Xbox One and pool table. It’s a great space to develop your gaming skills, or enjoy challenging family members. Don’t imagine a dark space though, this room is sea facing and as you relax on the sofa you may have trouble concentrating when the outside view is far more entertaining than the virtual one. Entrance The entrance hall, part of the open plan dining area, is bright with natural light flooding in through the glazed roof. For your comfort a bench has been provided to make it easier to remove your boots or sandy shoes after a country walk or playing on the beach. Two fitted units provide ample space to store coats and outside clothing. Kitchen The Kitchen is entered from the dining space or via the hallway leading to the front entrance. The room is light and airy with a glazed roof allowing the natural light to flood in. A ship’s porthole style window sets a nautical theme which flows throughout this luxury beach home, with a compass styled clock, pebble beach display and ships wheel, so you never feel too far away from the sea. If you love to cook this well appointed kitchen has a 5 burner Rangemaster Cooker, an American style Rangemaster fridge freezer with ice and drinks maker, microwave, a 4- slice toaster and Tassimo coffee maker. The owners have taken care to ensure that you have all the crockery, glassware and utensils you need too, so if you’re feeling creative you’ll find it a pleasure to spend time cooking for everyone. Utility Room The kitchen leads to a Utility room. So you can spend your time enjoying yourself, this is where all the time saving essentials are, a washing machine, tumble dryer, airer and small fridge. Additional space can be found in the entrance hall for coats and outdoor footwear. Sleeping Bedroom One Waking up to a sea view is one of life’s most magical moments and the view from bedroom one, located on the first floor, is breathtaking. The owner has supplied a pair of binoculars so you can really enjoy watching nature at play. Step onto your private balcony for breakfast overlooking the beach, or drinks as the sunsets on the ocean.

Bedroom One benefits from a spacious en-suite shower room. A larger bathroom, with a bath, is located between bedrooms one and two.

As the sun sets relax with a glass of wine and dine alfresco on the decking area, with a Barlow & Tyrie dining table with ceramic tabletop with seating for 8, or fire up the coals to enjoy a BBQ by the beach.

About the location

CARBIS BAY

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.
