Breathtaking sea view, first-class apartment

Situated in cool Carbis Bay, where dramatic views sweep across the bay to St Ives and Godrevy lighthouse, this wonderful apartment luxuriously sleeps 4. 

Only a few minutes’ walk to the Blue Flag beach, and 3 minutes to the local railway station (which takes you into St Ives and connects to the mainline) its location is truly fabulous. An apartment with London styling but Cornish views means top-class accommodation for your holiday, set close to the scenic South West Coast Path.

Number 5 is an incredible high-end seafront apartment, with superb views, a true slice of Cornish paradise. It was recently completely remodelled by an architect and interior designer to be tastefully streamlined, bringing you the ultimate in bespoke style and luxury. The tasteful colour scheme makes the most of the perfect St Ives light for which it is renowned.

The extensive refurbishment includes luxury wet-rooms, underfloor heating and even gorgeous ultrasoft, natural breathe-easy cashmere mattresses to make you as comfortable and pampered as possible. This unique and stylish space is designed for the discerning guest who is looking for something super-special.

At over 1,000 sq ft, this 2 bed / 2 bath apartment boasts a spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and living area with one of Cornwall’s most iconic views. With ample dining space for six, and a fully-equipped luxury kitchen with built-in wine cooler, eating in is the perfect choice, while the adjacent open-plan living room space has panoramic picture-window views over Carbis Bay to enjoy.

The king-sized master bedroom has an ensuite with a contemporary freestanding bath, while the second bedroom can be a super-king or twin room, making it a perfect apartment for two couples or a small family to enjoy their holiday in one of Cornwall’s premier resorts.

Its elevated viewpoint provides unparalleled, uninterrupted views towards St Ives, with a sweeping 180 degree vista to Godrevy lighthouse, made famous by Virginia Woolf. Sit back in the warmth with a glass of wine and watch the sun set over the water from the perfect bay window seat. Everyone needs their ‘place’ and this is one that is perfect for you. On a cooler day, the underfloor heating is just what you need, and Smart TVs and hi-speed fibre broadband means that in-house entertainment is just a button away.

The apartment is conveniently located for world class dining, theatre, art, surfing and golf as well as world heritage sites dating back 5,000 years. It also employs a wonderful concierge service that, at your request, can organise airport transfers, make theatre and restaurant reservations and book tee-times.

St Ives is located in West Cornwall. There is plenty to do in St Ives and it is a fantastic location if you plan on exploring a little further afield too.

For beach lovers, there are plenty to choose from… Porthmeor Beach, Porthgwidden Beach, Godrevy, Porthkidney Beach or Carbis Bay 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 the most amazing stay at this Carbis Bay Apartment. The amenities of the home are just perfect with a beautiful kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms that make you want to stay forever. On top of that the place has the most amazing views and is a stone throw from a jaw dropping white sand beach with crystal clear water.

A truly unforgettable experience for us

This is an amazing apartment and it is clear that a lot of thought has gone in to every detail. This is topped off with a view to die for. Fantastic stay! We hope to return

If I could give 6 stars I would!
