A romantic Alpine-inspired retreat moments from Carbis Bay

Nestled in the trees, Hummingbird is a truly unique Alpine-inspired retreat, where guests can unwind in the luscious groves that surround, the stunning sea views and blissful hot tub that awaits.

Sleeping four, this property is upside down in style, where the sea views can best be enjoyed from the top floor where you’ll find the open-plan living/kitchen/diner. A rather special spot with striking vaulted ceilings, luxury wooden flooring, and floor-to-ceiling glass bi-folding doors out to the glass-fronted balcony. The contemporary kitchen is well equipped with stylish black granite worktops and all the appliances you could need for your Cornish getaway, while the dining table comfortably seats four. Guests will also enjoy the huge wall-mounted smartTV and contemporary hanging wood burning stove, the perfect set up for cosy nights in.

For a restful night sleep, choose between one of the two well-appointed king size bedrooms. Both elegantly styled with lavish bedding and home comforts such as smart TVs and ensuites, one bedroom is situated on the first floor, while the other is on the ground floor with direct access to the hot tub. The first-floor bedroom benefits from a large balcony and ensuite wet room, while the bedroom on the ground floor boasts patio doors leading to the garden beyond and a large ensuite shower room.

Like the interior, the outdoor space at Hummingbird has been carefully considered. Wonderfully secluded by the surrounding trees, it could be mistaken for a Scandinavian woodland lodge, although guests are reminded of their Cornish location with view of the sparkling sea which lies ahead. There’s a spacious lawn at the front of the property, private parking to the side, and not forgetting the highlight… a rejuvenating bubbling hot tub.

You’re moments from the award-winning Carbis Bay beach, which can be conveniently reached from the bottom of the garden where you can join the path to take you down to the beach. You’re also only a mile from bustling St Ives, where you’re spoilt with superb restaurants and bars, beaches, galleries and more.



Ground floor:

  • A king size bedroom with smartTV, storage and patio doors leading to the garden and direct hot tub access. There’s a large ensuite shower room with walk-in shower, a heated towel rail, and LED bathroom mirror.
  • Utility space with washing machine and tumble dryer.


First floor:

  • A king size bedroom with smartTV, large mirrored storage and its own balcony. There’s an ensuite wet room with drench shower head, a heated towel rail, and LED bathroom mirror.


Top floor:

  • Open-plan living/kitchen/diner with vaulted ceilings, luxury wooden flooring and underfloor heating, and floor-to-ceiling bi-folding doors out to the glass-fronted balcony.
  • The contemporary kitchen is well equipped with black granite worktops, an electric oven and induction hob, integrated dishwasher, and microwave. There’s an under counter fridge and freezer, plus toaster, kettle and coffee machine.
  • The wooden dining table comfortably seats four.
  • In the living area there’s a large wall-mounted smartTV, two leather sofas and a contemporary hanging wood burning stove.


  • Wonderfully secluded rear garden surrounding by trees, complete with patio area and hot tub.
  • There’s a spacious lawn at the front of the property.
  • Private parking to the side with access to an electric car charging point.
  • Access to a path from the garden, which leads directly to Carbis Bay beach.

High-quality bed linen and towels are provided at all of Cornish Secrets properties.

When holidaying in Carbis Bay look no further than Carbis Bay Beach. The proud recipient of a Blue Flag award, meaning it is a super-clean beach. Perfect for families with young children, the water is just right for swimming, and usually free of surfers/body boarders. If you prefer to sunbathe and relax, the spotlessly clean beach is around a mile long. With a beautifully clear sea, this fine beach is quiet; wonderful, too, for a sunset walk.

If a spa day is up your street, try the Carbis Bay Hotel’s C Bay Spa, which also has some fantastic eateries if you need to refuel for lunch, or perhaps looking for a romantic dinner out.

Situated two miles from St Ives along the coast path, it’s a wonderful stroll. Or you can hop on the St Ives Bay line at Carbis Bay for a short but pretty train ride. For beach lovers, there are plenty to choose from… Porthmeor Beach, Porthgwidden Beach, Godrevy, Porthkidney Beach to name but a few. Families and couples will enjoy relaxing on the sand or playing in the water. St Ives Surf School offers sessions for surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding and coasteering. All great fun! If you prefer to stay a little drier though, St Ives Boat Trips run sea-life safaris to see the local dolphins and seals!

One of St Ives most well-known attractions is the Tate St Ives, which is one of only four Tate galleries in the UK and is a haven for lovers of modern art. Artists praise St Ives for its beautiful light and it has inspired many pieces.

The cobbled streets of St Ives are home to many shops, galleries and cafes and most businesses are small independents or artisans. Check out Cornwall Soapbox for handmade soaps and aromatherapy products made in Cornwall!

When visiting St Ives, there are many bars, restaurants and cafes to choose from. Porthminster Kitchen regularly receives great reviews and has a strong focus on fresh local food or head to Blas Burgerworks for a tasty handcrafted burger using ingredients sourced from the area.

St Ives sits at the bottom of the A30, so if you are looking to explore more of the Cornwall coast, then this is a great base and you can book ferries for day trips to the Scilly Isles from Penzance (only a 20 minute drive away).

We had a wonderful stay at The Hummingbird which was perfect, and had beautiful weather.

Thank you very much!
Sue, May 2024

The house is equipped with all you need. Lovely and clean. Beautiful and comfortable to stay in and stunning view that took my breath away every time. We wanted a special family holiday to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and we certainly had the most perfect week. My children aged 8 And 6 loved playing on the spacious garden, visiting Carbis bay beach or catching the train to visit St Ives (both beach and station in a 6 minute walk).

Highly recommend staying at Hummingbird, Carbis Bay.

Luxury service and accommodation.
