The dining area and living areas are open plan with a large dining table and 6 chairs and there is a large three seat sofa, two seat sofa and additional sofa chair where guests can really relax and enjoy the sea views.

There is a modern family bathroom with a large bath with shower over with an additional en-suite shower room off the Master Bedroom. There are two large double bedrooms with a flat screen TV in the Master Bedroom and in the third bedroom are two single beds. Outside there is a separate storage area for storing the patio furniture for the terrace and which can also be used for bikes and surfboards. In terms of local facilities, the nearest supermarket is a Tesco which is less than 5 minutes drive away off the main A3074 road into St Ives and where there is a great Costa Coffee with fantastic sea views and which also has free Wifi. There are also banks, hairdressers, a chemist, newsagents and general stores all a short walk away in the centre of Carbis Bay.

About the neighbourhood
Historic St Ives remains one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK and is renowned for its cosmopolitan mix of restaurants and cafes, cobbled streets, art galleries including the famous Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum, golden sandy beaches and stunning scenery. Whether you are simply looking for a week on one of the many beaches, or an energetic mix of surfing, sailing, golf, horse riding, walking the South West Coastal Path or diving, there is something here for you. Carbis Bay is situated just outside St Ives and has one of the finest beaches in West Cornwall. It is an exclusive and quieter base which is ideal for exploring St Ives and the surrounding area.
Getting around
You can walk along the picturesque coastal path into St Ives in 20 minutes in one direction or to Hawkes Point and Porthkidney Sands in the other direction - the sands are again some of the finest in Cornwall. Alternatively, you are just a short walk from being able to access the tourist train which takes just a few minutes to arrive at St Ives from Carbis Bay and follows a stunning route along the coastline.The Hayle Esturary is also nearby for bird watching as is the West Cornwall Golf Club in Lelant.
