About this property

Carbis Bay is a holiday destination second to none, it’s turquoise water and lush surroundings feeling more Caribbean than British on a blue sky, sun-drenched day. It is also wonderfully positioned on Cornwall’s north coast making it the perfect place for enjoying all there is to see and do on in the area, so whether it’s a romantic getaway or a family holiday you’re in search of, this iconic crescent of coastline is pretty hard to beat.

Making the most of its position just above the beach, Surf and Sand is a beautifully styled, luxury apartment for four with a layout that showcases its staggering views over Carbis Bay from both the open plan living area and the master bedroom. Stepping into the property with its spacious and airy interior, guests will feel relaxation taking over before they’ve even plonked their bags down, and a short walk down a private path to the beach means a swift sea swim can be relished before a single suitcase has been unpacked.

Elegantly furnished in creams and neutrals, Surf and Sand‘s décor is trumped only by the blue hues of sea and sky in the background, and a wonderful balcony off the living room is just the spot for taking in those magnificent views. Two bright bedrooms, one of which includes a fabulous Master en-suite with access to the balcony, provide ample space for couples or families with children, and a modern fully equipped kitchen as well as a spacious dining area means spending time together whether cooking or eating is definitely on the holiday agenda.

Set between St Ives and Hayle, Carbis Bay is a great base from which to explore the surrounding area, and a gentle 25 minute walk along the South West Cost Path to St Ives rewards visitors with spectacular coastal views along the way. Alternatively, the little train station which lies just a short walk from the apartment allows guests to hop on board and experience one of the country's most scenic railway journeys to St Ives, arriving in the heart of the town's cultural and foodie scene a mere three minutes later.

With its fine, white sand and crystal clear water it’s easy to see why people are drawn to Carbis Bay's Blue Flag beach and experienced companies like the beach-based Ocean Sports Centre offer everything from SUPping and kayaking to sea safaris, equipment hire and lessons. The village also boasts the world-renowned C Bay Spa with its therapy rooms and amazing onsite facilities as well as a handful of fabulous restaurants including Ugly Butterfly and Una Kitchen which are terrific for anyone who loves eating out.
