About this location
The Cornwall region
The Penthouse is a five minute car journey into the beautiful St Ives where you will find cobbled streets with lots of local art work. There are numerous restaurants to choose from, but best of all, Carbis Bay and St Ives are known for the beautiful white sandy beaches with crystal clear seas that have won lots of awards. The apartment is 25 minutes into St Ives by foot on the stunning coastal walk, or a two minute walk to the Carbis Bay train station where you can take a coastal ride into St Ives. There is also a very good bus route with regular buses. Carbis Bay is also a good base to go to the Lizard point, to visit St Michaels mount or to experience the Minack Theatre (this is an open air theatre in Porthcurnow). Lands End is just up the road from Porthcurnow and is a must to visit.
There are lots of activities In Carbis Bay and St Ives. Try horse riding, and experience some of the most beautiful National Trust tracks. In St Ives you can visit the Tate Gallery, featuring work by Barbara Hepworth or visit Leach Pottery. On Carbis Bay Beach, in the season, they offer kyaks and outriggers for hire. There is a cafe and clean toilets by the Carbis beach, or you could visit the var or restaurant at the Carbis Bay Hotel.
In September there is a festival in St Ives; New year is really celebrated in St Ives with lots of fancy dress and bands.There is also the St Ives lesiure center where you can swim or use the gym there are also lot of classes you can take. In Carbis Bay we have playzone which is great for children full of indoor slides and soft play area for little ones.

We had a wonderful stay inThe Penthouse. The apartment is finished to a very high standard and is in a beautiful peaceful location. The kitchen is very well equipped and has absolutely everything you need. Bedrooms are spacious and light with wonderful views and comfy beds. The outside terrace is a lovely place to chill and admire the view.
Ideally located for Carbis Bay beach, the Coastal Path, St. Ives, the coastal train and local bus stop.
It was so easy to book, both Kelly & Suzanne were very friendly and helpful and it was nice to be able to book any length of stay instead of the usual 7/14 nights.
The only thing we would have liked were loungers or an outdoor settee to relax on, as the patio chairs are not too comfy to sit on for any length of time.
We have visited St. Ives many times and this is definitely one of the best places we have stayed and would highly recommend.

Excellent position, clean with comfy beds and very well equiped. Loved the spacious open plan living but just one shower for 3 double rooms was a problem. No lift to take the luggage up to the penthouse! However, we have stayed in lots of accommodation in Carbis Bay whilst visiting family and this was one of the best.
