Just a short walk from the beautiful Carbis Bay beach, the apartment is also located within walking distance of St Ives, via the coastal path.

The property was completed in 2012 and boasts all the modern amenities you would expect (including free WiFi connection to super fast broadband, 55'' Smart TV, and Sonos Playbar for superior sound and music streaming capabilities).

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 is a cafe and clean toilets by the Carbis beach, or you could visit the var or restaurant at the Carbis Bay Hotel.

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.

"Lovely apartment"

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.

"Fabulous family apartment!"

Lovely apartment, beautifully equipped and family friendly with spectacular views!! The beautiful beach and pretty seaside town of St. Ives were both within walking distance. We had a wonderful week and would definitely stay there again!!
