Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in St Ives area - Beach View

Wifi, Private outside terrace, prime seaside location, 2 bedrooms

Beach View is a modern contemporary holiday property which has undergone a complete refurbishment and occupies a superb elevated front line position on the site of the old Gwel Marten Hotel on Headland Road in Carbis Bay and just a short walk to one of the best beaches in England. The apartment boasts a fantastic private sea terrace which very few properties have and overlooks the immaculate gardens of Gwel Marten, providing glorious uninterrupted sea and beach views. There is also free Wifi internet access.

There is a large private covered parking space which is just a few seconds walk away and just a little further is the delightful Carbis Bay train station. It is just a short train ride into the centre of St Ives along the single track and the journey takes just a few minutes and follows a wonderfully scenic path along the coast. The train very popular with visitors and a great way of beating all the busy holiday traffic in St Ives.

Beach View is also located right on the doorstep of the South West Coastal Path so it is an ideal base to start your walk and is also just a few minutes walk down the hill to the golden soft sands of Carbis Bay with its calm turquoise water.

Internally the apartment is very spacious (1200 sq ft) and in the main is fully open plan with a white gloss modern kitchen with breakfast bar, formal dining area with a large table and six chairs and a luxurious lounge area with two very large three seater sofas where guests can relax and enjoy breathtaking sea views. The modern family bathroom is again very spacious and has a separate shower enclosure, twin sinks and a deep luxurious bath with additional shower. There are two large bedrooms to the rear with the master bedroom having a king size bed and the second bedroom has two single beds with an additional single bed designed with flexibility in mind. Both bedrooms have TVs.

There is also has a very useful rear terrace with seating and which is ideal for a morning coffee and a read of the papers when more shelter is required and its also provides guests with a great outdoor storage area for bikes and surfboards.

In terms of local facilities, the nearest supermarket is a Tesco which is less than 5 minutes drive away off the main A3074 road into St Ives and where there is a great Costa Coffee which also has free wifi. There are also banks, hairdressers, a chemist, newsagents and general stores all a short walk away in the centre of Carbis Bay. During the day when on the beach there is a cafe and food outlet.

Please feel free to contact us for further information, additional pictures of the apartment and useful websites. The apartment is available all year round and a great escape location during the off-peak winter season when walking the South West Coastal path is particularly popular activity. During this time the apartment is available for shorter breaks including weekend and mid-week stays. The St Ives music & arts festival during September is popular as is the New Year festivities.

Quite simply the best location in Carbis Bay

  • 5 of 5

When you arrive at Beach View you soon realize that this apartment looks even better than the photos. Truly breathtaking views form the lounge of Carbis Bay beach with St Ives in the distance and panoramic views of the ocean.

The apartment itself is stunning and immaculate throughout. Fabulous kitchen and a gorgeous bathroom. Bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable. You get your own covered car parking space which is directly opposite the apartments.

The apartment is huge ( 40 foot long hallway !! ) and catered for our needs perfectly. Beautiful sunset evenings spent sipping wine on the patio watching the enchanting lights of St Ives.

Carbis Bay station is only a 2 minute walk and trains run every half an hour into St Ives or if you prefer you can take the beautiful coastal path and be in St Ives in approx 45 minutes.

I cannot recommend this property highly enough and would recoomend it to both couples and families. Bryan and Paul the owners are just the nicest people you could wish to meet and handle bookings and queries extremely efficiently.

My wife and i have decided that this is the only place that we wish to stay when visiting Cornwall and will be booking again soon for next year.

Book it and see for yourself, you will not be disappointed having discovered one of the true gems of Cornwall.

Quite simply the best location in Carbis Bay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is even better than it looks in the photos.

Extremely clean and very well maintained, fabulous kitchen and bathroom and very comfortable beds. The view from the lounge is truly breathtaking, taking in the beautiful beach at Carbis Bay and St Ives in the distance with panoramic views of the ocean. You get your own personal parking space ( covered ) which is directly opposite the apartments. Carbis Bay station is only a 2 minute walk and trains run every half an hour into St Ives, or if you prefer you can take the beautiful coastal path and be in St Ives in approx 40 minutes.

My and i have already decided that this is the only place where we now wish to stay when visiting this part of Cornwall so will be booking again soon for next year. We cannot recommend this place highly enough. Bryan and Paul ( the owners ) are extremely efficient and just the nicest of people you could wish to met.

Beach View catered for our needs perfectly, book it if you can and you will not be disappointed having discovered one of the true gems of Cornwall.

This is a great property. Very clean and spacious. The view is gorgeous and the location as great for getting into St Ives. We stayed there with three kids and two adults and the flat was perfect for this. We had a wonderful time here.

Beautiful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this holiday apartment. We've stayed here three times now - and each time has been wonderful! On arrival it's clean and fresh, great family bathroom with a bath AND a walk in shower, fully equipped modern fitted kitchen (we love to cook), gorgeous squishy leather sofas to sit on and admire the most beautiful view across the bay to St Ives.The patio directly outside is another great addition to just sit, and sip a glass of wine.

Lovely spacious appartment. Very clean and everything you need for the perfect stay. Lovely kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment, very clean and furnished very well. The view as you walk in takes your breath away, the view across to St. Ives spectacular. The patio is lovely to sit out on. The best location we have ever stayed in. If you are going to Cornwall book this apartment. The beach is just below, it's a little steep, but no problem at all. Hassle free booking, and we were given excellent details, how to get there etc. We would love to stay again, and you will not be disappointed. The pictures on the web site are true to life, but when you arrive it's even better. The train stop to st. Ives is just across the road, and the coastal path to. Thank you, we have a great time.

Fantastic location and views

  • 5 of 5

Location was excellent: Several beaches in walking distance, direct access to coastal path, close to trains to St Ives (3 min journey for £1). Chippy and Tesco 3 minute drive away.

Views were awesome: Carbis Bay with St Ives beyond were beautiful, and all from the lounge or patio. Stunning sunsets too.

Accommodation: Clean, well appointed, pleasant and comfortable.

Booking and arrival information etc all fine.

Only thing to note is that access to the flat is via steps which we hadn't spotted when choosing this accommodation. Was a mild inconvenience as we had a pram but nothing more. We'll definitely stay there again!

Carbis Bay is less than 2 miles from St Ives. You can walk along the picturesque coastal path into St Ives in 20 minutes in one direction or the villages, beaches, dunes and golf course of Lelant in the other. If you are looking for the magnificent scenery of St Ives but want a slightly quieter life then Carbis Bay is an ideal base. The direct access to the St Ives branch railway line means that a car is not required. Historic St Ives is renowned for its cosmopolitan mix of restaurants and cafes, art galleries, beaches and scenery and whether you are simply looking for a week on one of the many beaches, or an energetic mix of surfing, golf, walking or diving, there is something here for you. Further afield, Penzance, St Michael's Mount, Lands End, Sennen Cove (surfing), Padstow (cooking courses with Rick Stein), Newquay (indoor water world) and St Austell (Eden Project) are all within very easy reach either by car or train.
