About this apartment

Beach View is a modern contemporary holiday property which has undergone a complete refurbishment and occupies a superb elevated front line position on the site of the old Gwel Marten Hotel on Headland Road in Carbis Bay and just a short walk to one of the best beaches in England. The apartment boasts a fantastic private sea terrace which very few properties have and overlooks the immaculate gardens of Gwel Marten, providing glorious uninterrupted sea and beach views. There is also free Wifi internet access.


There is a large private covered parking space which is just a few seconds walk away and just a little further is the delightful Carbis Bay train station. It is just a short train ride into the centre of St Ives along the single track and the journey takes just a few minutes and follows a wonderfully scenic path along the coast. The train very popular with visitors and a great way of beating all the busy holiday traffic in St Ives.



Beach View is also located right on the doorstep of the South West Coastal Path so it is an ideal base to start your walk and is also just a few minutes walk down the hill to the golden soft sands of Carbis Bay with its calm turquoise water.



Internally the apartment is very spacious (1200 sq ft) and in the main is fully open plan with a white gloss modern kitchen with breakfast bar, formal dining area with a large table and six chairs and a luxurious lounge area with two very large three seater sofas where guests can relax and enjoy breathtaking sea views. The modern family bathroom is again very spacious and has a separate shower enclosure, twin sinks and a deep luxurious bath with additional shower. There are two large bedrooms to the rear with the master bedroom having a king size bed and the second bedroom has two single beds with an additional single bed designed with flexibility in mind. Both bedrooms have TVs.



There is also has a very useful rear terrace with seating and which is ideal for a morning coffee and a read of the papers when more shelter is required and its also provides guests with a great outdoor storage area 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 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. During the day when on the beach there is a cafe and food outlet.



Please feel free to contact us for further information, additional pictures of the apartment and useful websites. The apartment is available all year round and a great escape location during the off-peak winter season when walking the South West Coastal path is particularly popular activity. During this time the apartment is available for shorter breaks including weekend and mid-week stays. The St Ives music & arts festival during September is popular as is the New Year festivities.

    Breath taking View

    We enjoyed a wonderful week here, the apartment is perfectly placed to enjoy the wonderful view but also so close to the beach, train line and coastal walks. We highly recommend!!

    The Best View Ever!

    We had a lovely week in this smart and well kept apartment. There is a wonderful view of St Ives Bay you could just sit for hours! The beach at Carbis Bay is pristine with good amenities. Carbis Bay station is a couple of minutes away giving easy rail access to St Ives and Penzance. The South West Coast Path is literally two minutes away. The apartment is not good for those with accessibility issues.

    What a view :)

    We had a lovely time staying at the apartment. The view to the beach and ocean is what makes the apartment so special. The location is great although the walk up the hill back from the beach is a killer. Very steep hill. A couple of things that we didn’t like were the beds as they were lumpy and hard. We didn’t sleep well in them at all so maybe the owner can invest in some better quality mattresses? Also, the washer/dryer was temperamental to use as once the cycle finished it locked the clothes inside. We waited half hour to see if the lock would turn off but it didn’t so ended up having to contact the owner who responded promptly. We ended up running the cycle again to get the clothes out in the end. We also tried to dry the clothes but it ended up washing them instead so I’d say more guidance is needed for the washer/dryer usage. Aside from those two issues we loved our stay and highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit Carbis Bay :)

    Great apartment at brilliant location

    It’s a room with the best view and easy access to the beach and the train station. Car parking space too small and check in time far too late in the day and check out of 8.30am pretty unhelpful with a family to organise and car to pack.

    Another excellent stay!

    Our second visit to this property and it didn’t disappoint, we are missing the stunning views again already! Lovely, clean and spacious apartment with parking in the beautiful location of Carbis bay, 2 minute walk to the station and beach areas with easy access into St Ives, would definitely recommend, thank you for another wonderful stay!

    Perfect in so many ways. Great location, fantastic views, clean and pristine.

    Wonderful place to stay, quiet away from hussle and bussle but easy to get to many places. Nice to walk along the coastal path in to St Ives where there are many restaurants and some lovely shops. ( you can also get the train) Its a relatively short drive to places of interest, St Michaels Mount, is 20 minutes away. The Lizard , Cape Cornwall a little longer but worth it for the breath taking views and walks along the costal path. The beach at Carbis Bay was lovely perfect place for little kids. Good supermarkets close by a Tesco that is walkable and a really good M&S with a food hall a short drive away. The property itself was extremely clean and nicely furnished. The view from the living room window was so so beautiful I could have happily spent all day sitting reading and looking at the view but we were busy doing other things! Would definitely book this property again.

    Well-located. Overpriced.

    We have just spent a week in this apartment. The views from the front are fabulous and the location is very good and very near Carbis Bay train station. The kitchen is very well stocked and the sitting room is lovely. The beach is gorgeous. The walk down to the beach is relatively steep but not difficult for the average person/child. However I do feel that the cost was high for what we got. This is a two bedroom flat with attractive views from the open plan front sitting room/kitchen but which is very much less attractive to the rear. The rear ground floor bedrooms have windows overlooking a communal courtyard with a bright lamppost in it. There were blackout blinds in one bedroom but not the other. There is a patio outside the sitting room but it is centimetres away from the patio of the neighbours on each side, so you are heavily dependent on them being considerate (which they were during our week). Also, to get to the covered parking space, you have to go up two flights of stairs and cross a road. Also the mattresses creaked very loudly every time we moved. Finally on arrival the house smelt strongly of air fresheners (we counted six in total) and the storage heaters were on - in August - it took overnight to cool down. Overall, there are many pluses about this property, but be in no doubt that it is a commercial rental property which is part of a portfolio.

    Family review

    We all loved our stay- our first impression was "wow - what a view!" - which we never tired of. Very comfortable apartment - good friendly communication on arrival and departure. Nice touch of cake and bubbles. Would thoroughly recommend. Steep walk to beach a few mins away but totally worth it. Would stay there again in an instant
