About the Owner

I let and manage 2 properties, The Carracks and Llewellan Apt 1. My husband and I own The Carracks. We live there through the winter and move out to let it in the summer.

Llewellan Apt is owned by my parents, who are keen walkers and invested in the property as a retirement home. As this is still a few years away, they made the decision to use it as a holiday let and for friends and family to visit Cornwall. I manage the apartment for them as I live just around the corner.

As I only have 2 properties to manage this gives me a really hands on approach, ensuring everything runs smoothly so you can enjoy your holiday.

I love the outdoor life in Cornwall. I am a surf coach and I enjoy walking and riding. My husband and I spend as much time as possible enjoying this beautiful county.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

We have stay in Carbis Bay for one week from 28th of May till 04th of June 2016. We have been very impressed by the standard of the apartment, wonderful views from the living room and beautiful garden which my kids enjoyed so much. The apartment is in very convenient location, literary 5 minutes walk to the pictures, soft sanded beach and the coastal path leading to St.Ives. There is plenty attractions to see nearby and lots of sport activities available locally.Nicki had been very helpful, available on her phone to give us extra directions however leaving us uninterrupted to enjoy our stay. Her apartment offered everything what was needed and beyond that, including books, family board games, and some outdoor toys which had been an extra bonus. Overall we loved our stay and hoping to come back there in the future. We very strongly recommend it for everybody.

Well equipped apartment in superb location overlooking the sea

  • 4 of 5

Had a fabulous relaxing week in March in this lovely apartment enjoying fantastic views looking over the sea to St Ives. It was great to be able to walk the beautiful coast path there or to take the 3 minute train ride when feeling tired! We would definitely visit again.

Great Location - Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to this neat, tidy and comfortable flat. The location was perfect for us. The coastal path at the bottom of the garden takes you down to Carbis Bay beach or a further lovely walk into St Ives or along to Porth Kidney beach and beyond. View from the flat is perfect. Hope to return sometime in the future.

From the Owner

Carbis Bay is simply beautiful - the beach is as good as any you will find anywhere in the world. As there is parking, it means that you are a little removed from the hustle an bustle of St Ives, but only 3 minutes away on the train. The beach tends to be far less crowded than the St Ives beaches. You are within easy striking distance of both North and South Coast beaches - perfect for surfing! There is excellent walking on the coastal path, and further inland on the moors of Penwith. We often take our bikes out along the pretty lanes surrounding the area. West Cornwall Golf Course is close, as is the Presidents course at Tregenna Hotel. St Michaels Mount, Lands End, Eden Project and other attractions are all within an hours drive - perfect for holiday entertainment.

From the Owner

The garden has direct access onto the South West Coastal Path, making it a perfect base for walking holidays. There is a good shop and post office nearby, and the shops in St Ives are about 4 minutes away on the picturesque St Ives Branchline. The garden is perfect for barbecues, sitting taking in the view at the end of the day with glass in hand. The apartment is light and airy and has a really relaxed homely feel about it.
