Sea Shells at The Sands Apartments, Carbis Bay, is a five star gold luxury ground floor self catering apartment providing premium self catering holiday accommodation and is the ideal base for exploring the many attractions that West Cornwall has to offer.

With an abundance of art galleries, fine restaurants and a choice of golden sandy beaches, sparkling seas and its picturesque working harbour (often home to families of seals) it’s no wonder St. Ives is one of the UK’s favourite seaside holiday destinations. Its unique quality of light provides inspiration to artists, poets and writers all year round.

Carbis Bay, one of Cornwall’s hidden treasures, is just a mile and a half away from St Ives, and is the perfect base for a memorable holiday.

St. Ives is considered to be the jewel in the crown of Cornwall, and Carbis Bay is definitely a treasure waiting to be discovered! The superb views of St Ives Bay, ‘one of the most beautiful bays in the world’, are truly breathtaking. Carbis Bay beach boasts a mile and half of soft, golden sands and is never over-crowded.

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 two minutes (of course you can take your car, but St. Ives is almost impossible to drive through and park in the summer!).

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 make Carbis Bay a pleasure to visit all year round.

Sleeping 4 (+ infant) this premium quality 5* Gold self catering holiday apartment boasts fabulous uninterrupted sea views from its 8 ft patio doors. Furnished to a very high standard, Sea Shells has the advantage of having a private patio area on the seaward side of the property giving access to the communal gardens, as well as benefitting from a south facing, fully enclosed, sunny rear terrace.

The spacious open plan living accommodation has leather sofas, matching modern light oak furniture, hand-made curtains and soft furnishings, 37” flat screen TV, DVD, Denon stereo system with i-pod dock, a well stocked fully fitted designer kitchen, under-floor heating, mood lighting, wireless internet access, as well as a good selection of books, games and DVD’s!

The two roomy bedrooms (one king size bed and two singles) have flat screen TV’s, matching light oak furniture, good quality mattresses, crisp white bed linen and plenty of soft towels. There is a sumptuous fully tiled en-suite shower room plus a family bathroom, also fully tiled with a smart, sleek contemporary Italian basin, toilet and bath, streamlined taps and a heated towel rail.
