Carbis is a spacious open plan apartment built with luxury in mind.  It has been cleverly interior designed throughout creating a contemporary, welcoming and unique base from which to enjoy your break in St Ives.  With views to impress, the uninterrupted 180 degree scene stretches across St Ives rooftops, Harbour and beaches, right up the North Cornish coast. **Please note there is ongoing building works at the Tate, St Ives and disruption to the neighbouring area.

The Property

Upon entering Carbis the hallway immediately opens up into the spacious, contemporary open plan living, dining and kitchen area, a wonderful light filled space.  The living area offers a large and extremely comfortable L shaped sofa, a great spot for a lazy morning coffee.  A strategically placed arm chair and leather "easy" chair with footstool are in the window to take full advantage of the fabulous views.  At the far end of the room the kitchen and dining area with circular glass dining table again enjoy the tempting view, your very own vantage spot for private dining.  Each of the bedrooms have luxury beds for that all important restful nights sleep.  The uber-chic bathrooms include Villeroy & Boch fittings.

We had a fabulous week staying in Carbis. It was clean, spacious, light-filled and comfortable and we loved all the artwork. The best thing however was the amazing panoramic view from the windows and the balcony which exceeded all our expectations and totally made the holiday for us.

Carbis is perfect for couples and families seeking the ultimate St Ives luxury holiday apartment boasting incredible views, with all the delights of St Ives on your doorstep.  The all important designated parking space is a real bonus along with the sit out balcony.  Cornish Gems are proud to present 3 luxury apartments within the exclusive "Porthmeor Apartments" development on Godrevy Terrace in St Ives.  This beautiful collection of apartments includes; Carbis (sleeps 4), Gwithian (sleeps 4), Island View (sleeps 6).  All 3 apartments have been carefully crafted combining the very best in quality furniture with some unique and interesting one-off pieces.  Godrevy Terrace itself benefits from an elevated position boasting outstanding 180 degree views that stretch from Porthmeor beach, across The Island, St Ives Harbour, Porthminster, Godrevy and beyond.  Rest assured views in St Ives do not get better than this and all 3 apartments enjoy the same outlook!
