A compact ground-floor apartment in an idyllic location, with sea-views and dedicated parking, 18 Kelwyn Court is ideal for 'couple' or family use, with a shared garden area and easy access to a 'safe' Beach (10 minutes walk), supermarket and local bus routes. Please note, this is a Friday to Friday let (to enable cleaning)

The main living space is a Lounge/Diner with Kitchen area at one end, and windows which face out over St Ives Bay. Seating and dining space for up to 6 people is available. A Bathroom separates two Bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with bunk beds (suitable for 2 children or possibly 2 adults) and a folding bed. A digital television has 'Freeserve' and a player for the selection of DVD's and videos. For your enjoyment there is a collection of games, puzzles and books.

A Supermarket is within 5 minutes walk, and a range of Restaurants can be found in Carbis Bay. A Footpath leads downhill to Carbis Bay Beach (awarded a Blue Flag in 2013) and a coastal path follows the back of the beach offering a picturesque walking route to St Ives. The Carbis Bay train station allows you to use the attractive scenic branch line which links Lelant with St Ives, and the main line at St Erth.

About Nicholas Langham

Hi. My name is Nick, and my wife and I own 18 Kelwyn Court. We are currently enjoying retirement and live in Winchester. We have had a long relationship with Cornwall and the South West (my wife is Cornish) and we have made many visits over the years. We regard it as a second home.

Nicholas Langham purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Nicholas Langham chose St Ives area

We purchased this apartment some 10 years ago and use it as a holiday home. It has been a useful base to allow us to visit the whole County at different times, as well as meeting with relations. We love our occasional trips to this area. Its famous scenery is superb and we enjoy seeing the sea in all its moods. The history of the County adds a further layer of interest to investigate. Footpaths can take us to remote areas and there's nothing like a good dose of invigorating fresh air. Our sons and families take full advantage of sun, surf and beach activities.

What makes this apartment unique

* Well equipped home-from-home * Closeness to A30 * Parking space * Good access to local amenities * Walking distance to the Beach and Coast Path * Bus routes which facilitate walking expeditions * Many walking routes to take * Hidden gems to discover and explore

Fabulous Appartment for our New Years stay

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a reasonably priced property for a long weekend covering the New Year period. I couldn't believe it when I found this little gem. The photo's certainly don't do it justice. The property was spacious (there were four of us), clean and had all the equipment needed for a self catering holiday. My son WAS a little cramped in the bunk bed (we separated them as we were told we could do) as he is 6 foot 4 but it didn't spoil our enjoyment! The property is based in Carbis Bay but it was still easy enough to get into St. Ives either by train, walking (gorgeous views along the coastal path) or a reasonably priced taxi. We did have a bit of an adventure on the first night trying to find the station in the pitch black using the route recommended in the useful info folder! We thoroughly enjoyed the New Year celebrations and I will look forward to visiting this property again.

Great location and everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Christmas week and were blessed with superb weather. Did loads of walking and enjoyed,the different routes into st Ives.

Our only problem was that we found the bed really uncomfortable but that is just personal.

Would recommend to anyone thinking of visiting. Carbis bay is a great area. Just that bit out of st Ives but near enough to enjoy.

Lovely, well positioned holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Booked for 3 night stay to attend a local wedding. Appartment was just as decribed, lovely and clean. As it was late when we arrived the key safe was a great idea, as friends had to travel to St Ives to collect their keys! The local information which was available was very helpful. The owner was very helpful when booking the apartment - would highly recommend this property.

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

Its a lovely property with plenty of room for both adults and children situated in a beautiful part of the country, the family loved the location and beach, the cleaner did turn up the day we were actually staying which was a bit weird which possibly meant that the property hadn't been cleaned, would definitely visit again.

Owner's Response: My apologies for a delay in responding to this Review. I'm pleased to note that you enjoyed your stay and would come again The issue about the cleaner arriving late was entirely my fault. I had quoted the wrong date for her. However the previous occupants were friends, who usually stay on the understanding that the apartment is left as they found it. So I would hope that cleanliness would not have been an issue. Best wishes Nick Langham
