Remote controlled mood lighting, underfloor heating and wifi make this luxurious apartment an ideal holiday home all year round.

The well stocked fully fitted designer kitchen has all of the appliances and equipment you will need, including large fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, microwave, oven and five ring hob. There are plenty of Dartington crystal glasses, Royal Douton cutlery, Denby oven/table ware and plenty of crockery and pots and pans. And there are plenty of extras to make you feel at home too, including a slow cooker, food processor, blender, etc.

The mater bedroom boasts a king size bed with luxury pocket sprung mattress and overhead reading lights, with crisp white bed linen and curtains and soft furnishings from Laura Ashley and there are plenty of soft white towels, as well as Ercol bedside units and a large wardrobe, a flat screen TV, internet radio with ipod docking station and a hairdryer.

Only a mile and a half from the picturesque fishing village of St Ives, arguably the most famous seaside town in Cornwall, which is easily accessed by the magnificent South West coastal path or the St Ives Bay branch line, Carbis Bay is the perfect location for a great holiday and an ideal base for exploring the many attractions that West Cornwall has to offer.

Enjoy the tranquil setting of Carbis Bay and its beautiful beach, or stroll along the magnificent South West coastal path, taking in the dramatic views of St Ives Bay, and be in St Ives in around 20 minutes or so, or hop on the St Ives Bay branch line (almost certainly the most scenic railway in the UK) and be in St Ives in just two minutes. Carbis Bay Station is just a two minute walk from Sea Shells. The advantage of staying in Carbis Bay is that you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of St Ives, without the hassle of traffic and parking (many of the properties in St Ives do not have parking facilities and public spaces are limited), and during peak season driving through the centre of St Ives can be a challenge! The beauty of Carbis Bay is that you really don’t need to use your car unless you want to explore further afield as you can catch the branch line and be in St Ives in just a couple of minutes.

Carbis Bay itself has a fabulous blue flag beach, a good safe family holiday beach with lifeguard cover usually available between May and September, there’s a beach cafe / restaurant & takeaway as well as a local shop, fish & chip shop, pub, restaurants, etc. There are also spa facilities within walking distance, and a choice of golf courses within a two mile radius (including West Cornwall golf Club, probably one of the finest links courses in Cornwall). Water sports, including kayaking and stand up paddle boards, are available in Carbis Bay, with surfing lessons available in St Ives or at nearby Gwithian. Carbis Bay, just a mile and a half away from the bustling centre of St Ives, is the perfect base for a memorable holiday.

St Ives has an abundance of art galleries, fine restaurants and a choice of golden sandy beaches, sparkling azure seas and its charming working harbour so it’s no wonder it is one of the UK’s favourite holiday destinations. Its unique quality of light provides inspiration to artists, poets and writers all year round. Visitors will be captivated by the light, and mesmerised by the beauty of the award winning beaches, the maze of cobbled streets and quaint fisherman’s cottages, and will be charmed with the blend of designer shops and quaint traditional tea rooms which all seem to sit together in perfect harmony.

Warmed by the Gulf Stream, this part of West Cornwall enjoys its own micro climate and has a real Mediterranean feel about it; the sub tropical plants make Carbis Bay a joy to visit all year and we are able to offer short breaks out of peak season (please ask for more details), whether you are looking for a family getaway, a quiet romantic break for two, or an action packed holiday with friends.

Sea Shells is a non smoking property and we regret that no pets are allowed

Please note we also have a first floor property in St Ives, Sandcastles at Cordyline Croft - details also on Owners Direct / Home Away - property ref : 6923624.

The changeover day for Sea Shells is Friday, whilst the changeover day for Sandcastles is Saturday.

The apartments are just over a mile apart - ideal if you want to spend time with friends and family, but want your own space too!

"We've had a lovely time at Sea Shells this week and even enjoyed a bit of an 'Indian Summer' with sunshine (& sunburn for one of us!), the apartment is so well situated and equipped that it really felt like a 'home from home'. Thank you for your hospitality, welcome pack & additional 'supplies' - it really made for a memorable 1st anniversary".

Sea Shells Appartment

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment 10/10, all information given was accurate, the property was very clean and very well maintained overall, has everything you would need and a real home from home. On arrival there were fresh flowers, tea, coffee, chocolate, Cornish shortbread, milk and even a chilled bottle of Champagne in the fridge, which I really enjoyed after the long drive. the property is perfectly located for a walk to St Ives (25 mins or so) or to catch the local train to St Ives, the Station is only a few minutes walk away and the train journey takes around 3 minutes. The apartment has a lovely enclosed patio, which was a real sun trap! and a garden terrace with sea views. There is allocated parking set within a very pleasant private court yard. We thoroughly enjoyed the Spanish restaurant at the top of the road and ordered traditional Tapas and Paella. There was a great variety of places to eat in St Ives and the recommended restaurants were excellent. We all had a surfing lesson at St Ives Surf School, the Instructors were very friendly and great fun! We went on a sea safari, hired a small speed boat and visited several local attractions. The Beech at Carbis Bay and around St Ives were stunning! with golden sands and clear blue waters. I would recommend this holiday to relatives and or friends. We will definitely book again!

Wonderful holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic holiday here!! The apartment is fabulous, beautifully decorated, clean and great equipment! We were thrilled with the welcome tray!

Only 5 minutes walk to the beach, all downhill on the road then down steps and slopes onto the actual beach which was big, clean and gentle. Great Watersports company on the beach with Kayaks, Stand up paddle boards & canoes, we had SUP lesson and the team there were so helpful and friendly!

All in all we have had a fantastic holiday and the Sands and would highly recommend it to others ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Home from home in the most beautiful part of the country.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has everything you need for a great relaxing stay. Modern apartment set in the best place to explore southern Cornwall. Five minute walk to the train station with a 3 minute train ride into St Ives. The apartment is fully equipped for a family of four, very clean , tidy & well looked after and with Carbis Bay beach a stone throw away what more could you wish for !

Amazing apartment & a gorgeous sea view

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we have had! The weather has been mixed but we were blessed with staying in this extremely comfortable apartment, it really is home from home and so much better than the photos suggest. Everything about it has been carefully thought out and we really appreciated the attention to detail and that the apartment was spotlessly clean.

We have been visiting Cornwall for some time and we love it. This apartment is in such a superb location it really does tick all of the boxes.

Carbis Bay itself is beautiful and the apartment is in a nice quiet position. There are fabulous coastal walks in both directions and we made good use of the thermos flask and picnic set. We ate out most evenings but when we did stay in it was so easy as everything we needed was there - even a rack of herbs & spices to use.

The sea views from the loung are divine and we loved looking out across the gardens to the ocean, which is just mesmerising. Drawing back the curtains and seeing that view is a great way to start the day!

We had some lovely lazy lunches in St Ives and visited several beach cafes - Porthminster a favourite but all were good with amazing scenery. We walked into St Ives along the coastal path several times, and after a lazy lunch and a few drinks we caught the train back (very easy). We also tried some of the restaurants in Carbis Bay and really enjoyed fish and chips from Becks, tapas from La Cassitta and we had a great pizza one lunch time from the Carbis Bay beach cafe (great view there too!)

All in all a fantastically relaxing holiday in a lovely apartment. Just what we needed and can't wait to go back.

Modern, well equipped condo

  • 4 of 5

Two couples stayed in this clean, modern and very well equipped condo outside of St. Ives. Fay was exceptionally responsive via email and had a lovely welcome basket on our arrival. We appreciated the directions she sent us after telling us that our GPS would not work in this area! There was an enormous amount of information about the appliances and the area.This location was not ideal for us because we had to drive to everywhere, including to restaurants. You must have a car at this location. We also had expected an ocean view from the condo and were disappointed that there was none.

Sea Shells is less than a 5 minute walk downhill to the magnificent blue flag Carbis Bay beach with a mile of golden sand and an ocean of sparkling turquoise sea - the views are breathtaking. A good, safe family holiday beach with lifeguard cover from May to Sept. There is a shop/cafe, toilets and water sports available. When the tide is low you can walk around the rocky edges at Carrack Gladden and enjoy miles of soft sands at Porth Kidney Sands.

Just a mile and a half away, St Ives has a great choice of four golden sandy beaches, including the blue flag Porthmeor Beach (great for surfing) and the blue flag Porthminster Beach (a good safe family beach) as well as the Harbour Beach (very sheltered and a perfect suntrap) and Porthgwidden (a delightful sandy cove with a great beach cafe!). Surfers can take their pick from a wide selection of beaches in the surrounding areas to suit their level of ability – Gwithian is a real favourite and is about a 10-15 minute drive away).


Driving - Travel south west and join the M5 southbound to Exeter. From Exeter take the A30 towards Penzance. At Hayle leave the A30 and follow the signs to St Ives and Carbis Bay.

Train - Carbis Bay station 0.2 km (2 mins walk). The St Ives Bay branch line connects to the main line at St Erth, serving Paddington (FGW) & Glasgow (Virgin).

Further Details:

Carbis Bay itself is a tranquil setting with the most beautiful blue flag beach. It also has a fish & chip shop, beach cafe, restaurants, pub, local shop etc.

St Ives is renowned for its quality of food, light and innovation and has an abundance of cosmopolitan restaurants, cafes, art galleries and beautiful scenery. Whether you are looking for a traditional Cornish breakfast, a fine dining experience or afternoon tea, there is something for everyone from world class restaurants to supreme takeaways.

The advantage of staying in Carbis Bay is that you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of St Ives, without the hassle of traffic and parking as during peak season driving through St Ives itself can be a challenge!

The beautiful South West Coastal path runs through Carbis Bay, and it's around a twenty min walk along the path into St Ives. For more energetic walkers, the walk from St Ives to Zennor is truly outstanding (although it's not for the faint-hearted).

There are several coastal walks available nearby, all with spectacular scenery, to suit all abilities. Visit to plan your route.

Watersports are available locally - Carbis Bay beach offers water and beach based activities from Ocean Sports, including single and double kayaks, 4 & 6 man Hawaiian canoes, plus Canoe Surfing - a real experience! Surfing lessons are available at Porthmeor Beach in St Ives, and for those who want a bit more of a thrill, why not try Coasteering or Rock Climbing – Kernow Coasteering offer some great courses around the Lands End Peninsula

Suring available at Porthmeor Beach (2 miles), Godrevy (8 miles), Gwithian (6 miles), Praa Sands (12 miles), Sennen Cove (15 Miles), Porthcurno (18 miles).

Horse Riding is available at the Penhalen Trekking Centre and School in Hasletown (2 miles).

This part of Cornwall has a worthy reputation for Bird watching - local RSPB sites at Hayle Estuary (6 miles) & Marazion Marsh (8 miles).

Lots of great Cornish villages and places to visit nearby, inc. Mousehole, Newlyn, Marazion, Pendeen, The Lizard, Sennen Cove and many more all within a short drive. Doc Marten fans might like a day out to Port Isaac, about an hour away, another beautiful Cornish village well worth exploring.

If you’ve been glued to Poldark this year, you’ll definitely want to visit Church Cove, a beautiful spot and not difficult to see why it was used as one of the filming locations for the hit series. Just 16 miles away it’s well worth a visit (take a picnic!)

Gardens include :

Goldolphin Gardens, Helston, 8 miles

Trengwainton Gardens, Penzance, 10 miles

Trewidden Gardens, Penzance, 11 miles

Bonython Estate Gardens, Lizard Oeninsular, 18 miles
