Overview

About the property

8 person coastal retreat 10 min walk along coast path to Porthminster

Stylish and comfortable private front line house with uninterrupted sea views in St Ives. Our detached and peaceful home above Carbis Bay beach is the perfect UK beach holiday spot with off street parking for up to 3 cars, and just metres from the coast path means you can enjoy a car-free holiday of strolls into St Ives and picnics on the beach. The biggest supermarket in the area is 5 mins walk yet the house is tucked into a quiet hillside between the beaches of Carbis Bay and Porthminster Beach.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay in St Ives. Hated to leave this lovely house in a lovely setting. We trained to St Erth from London and used cabs and

walked around. The house was well fitted and had everything we needed for a few great days in Cornwall.

Nice house tucked away above Carbis Bay

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here for a week in August and had a lovely time. The house had everything we needed. If I were to look for a negative the outside space could have been better maintained/weeded.

Spacious house with beautful views

  • 5 of 5

Spotlessly clean house sleeping 8 in 3 rooms. Well-appointed and attractively furnished. Just off the coastal path and a pleasant walk into St Ives or the beach at Carbis Bay.

Owner's Response: Linda, thank you for taking the time to share this. We're grateful for all reviews but this is wonderful. Our cleaner works very hard looking after our home during the summer months for us, so she will be extra pleased to hear the first comment!

Relaxing Stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Nautique. The views were incredible, and the house was very well equipped and comfortable. It is very well located between Carbis Bay, and St Ives, although parking can be an issue in July/August.

Great location and stunning views! Perfect family holiday home.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Nautique, we were thrilled that the home and aspect was even better than the pictures. We stayed 3 days (much too short) with our daughter, son-in-law and their young son and baby. The bedrooms are very spacious and so nice to have good sized bathrooms! It was clean and very well equipped.

The location couldn't have been better. Far enough out of St Ives to avoid the crowds, yet close enough to walk along the beautiful coastal path. This made for a very peaceful getaway. The Carbis Bay beach was even closer. We would definitely return and highly recommend Nautique. Claire was very responsive and easy to reach. It's clear that she loves and takes great pride in the home and ensures that it is in great condition for her guests. Thank you Claire! We made some great memories during our short stay.

Location

Nearest Train
3 Kilometres
St Erth (main line to Penzance)
Nearest Beach
300 Metres
Carbis Bay Beach
Car: not necessary

This part of Cornwall is one of the most magical locations you will ever find; including some of Europe's best beaches, the UK's finest eating spots, great local produce and all the beauty nature can muster.

Nautique sits neatly above the sheltered and sandy blue flag accredited Carbis Bay beach - never over-crowded and a perfect family playground, just minutes from the house. With the supermarket a 3 min walk away and Porthminster beach, St Ives and the Tate just 10 min down the coastal path you really don't need to get in the car. But if you want to explore Penzance, St Michael’s Mount, Newlyn and Mousehole, Lands End, Sennan Cove, Porthcurno, Minnack Theatre, Eden Project and the Lizard are all nearby.

The surrounding area is amazing; mile upon mile of stunning white sand surfing beaches, crystal clear waters, breathtaking coastal and country walks, art galleries, open air theatres, superb pubs, cafes and restaurants, beautiful gardens and even the odd cider farm or theme park.

Other Activities: kite surfing
