Sea Shells & Sea Spray are a pair of outstanding ground floor sea facing garden apartments at the prestigious Sands Apartments in Carbis Bay. Located just up the hill from the magnificent Blue Flag Carbis Bay beach and just a stones throw from Carbis Bay train station where the short, scenic, coastal ride takes just three minutes to get you into the picturesque seaside town of St Ives.

Sea Shells (pictured in this ad) is a premium self catering holiday home sleeping 4 + infant in a cot (larger groups can also book our neighbouring apartment Sea Spray which together with Sea Shells can sleep 8 guests - each apartment sleeps 4 + infant. Sea Spray (property reference P199340) has recently been completed refurbished and furnished to the same same high standards as Sea Shells and is now available to book.

Sea Shells boasts a light and spacious open plan living space with uninterrupted sea views, two sofas, a Calligaris Media Unit (home to a 49" Panasonic 4K Smart TV, Playstation 4 games console, Blu-ray DVD player and a PURE blu tooth/internet/DAB stereo system) as well as a Calligaris dining table, four chairs & matching sideboard (which is full of books, games, puzzles, DVDs and CDs to keep all of the family entertained after long days at the beach, as well as remote controlled mood lighting.

The well stocked, designer Rok Punt kitchen has granite tops & Neff appliances, including a washer/dryer, fridge/freezer & oven with 5 ring hob, as well as all the essentials you'll need whilst on holiday. There is an abundance of Denby crockery, cutlery and table ware & oven ware, lots of Dartington crystal glasses, as well as the very best saucepans from John Lewis (plus plenty of plastics for our younger guests!). There's a blender for baby food, a slow cooker to ensure you have a tasty meal to come back to at the end of a long day exploring, lots of bake ware as well as a cook book or two so that you can enjoy fabulous alfresco dining taking in the glorious view.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with a luxury pocket sprung mattress to ensure a good nights sleep and has stylish curtains & soft furnishings from Laura Ashley with the walls showcasing paintings from local artists. There's a large wardrobe, Ercol bedside cabinets, and plenty of drawers as well as a travel cot for our younger guests if needed, plus a flat screen TV, stereo, hairdryer and plenty of soft towels. The master bedroom leads to a fully tiled en-suite shower-room with a superb drench shower, heated towel rail, under-floor heating and a handy bathroom cabinet.

The second bedroom features luxury Hypnos zip & link beds which can be made up as two (longer length 6’6) single beds or one super king size bed. There’s a light oak wardrobe and plenty of matching bedside drawers, tasteful curtains and soft furnishings from Laura Ashley (the modern blue & white decor is suitable for children, teens or adults making the apartment ideal for either two couples or a family), a 32" Panasonic TV, hairdryer, Roberts internet radio as well as plenty of soft towels.
The spacious family bathroom is fully tiled with contemporary white Italian sanitary ware, including a bath with overhead thermostatically controlled shower, a heated chrome towel rail and a large bathroom cabinet for all those teenage toiletries!

A real 'home from home' Sea Shells has been carefully thought about and is equipped with many extras (such as picnic set), to ensure your holiday is as relaxing as possible. There’s fibre wifi & underfloor heating throughout the apartment and the security at The Sands (gated access, high walls) means that you don't have to worry about leaving bedroom windows open throughout the day or night, which is sometimes a concern for guests staying in other ground floor developments.

Leading off of the living area is the fabulous sea facing patio with a table and four chairs, the perfect place to enjoy the charming views with a morning cuppa, whilst the bedrooms lead onto a fully enclosed secure rear terrace, sheltered from the wind by the high walls that surround it and benefiting from hours of sunshine it’s a real sun trap. With a table and four chairs as well as a couple of sun loungers it’s the ideal spot for relaxing with a good book (plenty of books to be found in the sideboard!).

Sea Spray (property reference P199340) has recently been refurbished and furnished to the same high standards as Sea Shells and is also available to book. Please refer to the property listing or visit our own website for the availability calendar.

Warmed by the Gulf Stream this part of Cornwall enjoys its own micro climate and has a real Mediterranean feel about it. The subtropical plants, cliff top paths and sandy beaches make Carbis Bay a pleasure to visit all year round 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 we are sure you won't be disappointed.
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, 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 three minutes (of course you can take your car, but St Ives is almost impossible to drive through and park in the summer!).
Carbis Bay Station is just a short walk from Sea Shells and the regular three minute train journey into St Ives is a delight (adult fare is just £1). 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 quite a challenge.
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.
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, pubs, restaurants, etc. There are also a choice of spa facilities and golf 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 at Carbis Bay beach, 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.

Non smoking or vaping permitted and we regret that no pets are allowed at any time of the year.

Bookings now being taken for 2021 and 2022.

Perfectly located to explore St Ives

By Tim on 29-Oct-2021

Perfectly located to explore St Ives and the western tip of Cornwall. The property is clean, tidy and beautifully furnished and equipped, with a property information pack that will answer every question you may have (and quite a few you may not have thought of). We know the area very well and will undoubtedly be back.
