Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Seaview is a stunning first floor luxury apartment, tastefully decorated and furnished to a high specification, with beautiful sea views from the lounge, both bedrooms, kitchen and balcony. Located just above Carbis Bay Beach, one of the best in the UK, it's less than a 5 minute walk to the water's edge and an ideal base for exploring the many wonderful attractions West Cornwall has to offer.
The property is light and spacious with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and offers the option of a quality double sofa bed in the lounge for those who require more than 4 beds. There is a well equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge / diner, all of which lead out onto the balcony with its wonderful sea views across to St Ives. The balcony has a table and four chairs and is a perfect sun trap throughout the afternoon and evening, ideal for having a drink whilst watching the sun go down!
There are flat screen TVs in the lounge and both bedrooms, free Wi-Fi and a sound system with iphone docking. In addition there is a good range of games and books to keep you entertained. Outside the apartment there is a private parking space in addition to visitor parking available on a first come first served basis.
Carbis Bay with its blue flag beach is a great location and easy to reach by road or rail. The small train station located just a stone's throw away will take you into St Ives within 3 minutes and is probably the most scenic journey you are likely to take. Alternatively a walk along the coastal path with its breathtaking views of the bay will take around 20 minutes.
St Ives is a true gem with its cobbled streets, picturesque harbour, golden beaches and abundance of galleries and restaurants. It's easy to see why it was voted the 'best UK coastal resort' for 2012! And don't forget, this is just a taste of what Cornwall has to offer. With the Eden Project, St Michaels Mount, Flambards, Lands End and Paradise Park, to name but a few, there really is something for everyone.
Seaview is highly recommended for couples and families alike – please see our Guest Reviews!

It has so much to offer with its excellent galleries for art lovers, waves for enthusiastic surfers, golden award winning beaches for families, fine dining restaurants and local cuisine for foodies, beautiful subtropical gardens for those with green fingers and a scenic coastal path for walkers and photographers alike. There really is nowhere like it!
You can visit the award winning Eden Project with its impressive biomes, paddle over to St Michaels Mount at low tide, enjoy the picturesque fishing villages of Mousehole, Mevagissey and Cadgwith Cove or take in a show at the Minnack, Cornwall's famous open air theatre overlooking the sea. For children there are a number of attractions such as Flambards, Paradise Park, Lands End, Newquay Zoo and the National Seal Sanctuary.
With numerous golden beaches all within easy reach, a wealth of cafes and restaurants, shops, galleries and views to die for, this special part of Cornwall really is the ideal holiday destination.
Carbis Bay is a perfect retreat for those wanting a quiet, relaxing holiday with the convenience of being close to the hustle and bustle of St Ives. The blue flag beach has excellent facilities, safe bathing, kayak rental and is perfect for families.
St Ives has 4 beaches including Porthmeor, a blue flag beach which is ideal for surfing; Porthgwidden, a small sandy cove and a real sun trap; the Harbour beach which is located in the heart of the town and the blue flag family beach of Porthminster.
In addition there is the less touristy Porthkidney beach at Lelant (to the right of the apartment), not to mention the sweeping sands of the Bluff, Towans and Gwithian, curving around to the spectacular Godrevy lighthouse.
Seals are frequent visitors to Carbis Bay and St Ives and are regularly spotted showing off to the crowds. Porpoise and Dolphins can also be seen at various times of the year either from the shore or by the regular boat trips operated from the harbour.
Having become a haven for artists, the area boasts numerous galleries and craft shops including the famous Tate Gallery located on Porthmeor beach, the Bernard Leach Pottery and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden.
For children there is a surf school, an indoor pool and leisure centre, playzone, horseriding, a cinema and boat trips. The area also has its own golf course overlooking the sea, breathtaking coastal walks and nature reserve at Hayle Estuary.
With some of the mildest winters and warmest summers in Britain and Northern Europe, Carbis Bay really is a great holiday location at any time of year.
Whether you are on a short break, annual holiday, visiting the renowned St Ives September festival of Music and Art or taking part in the New Year fancy dress celebrations, you really won't be disappointed!
