A wonderful family home, just moments from the beach

The sea views are beyond impressive, and saltwater adventure is on your doorstep … Morva means ‘gift from the sea’, and this fantastic home really does promise guests a plethora of coastal delights. Set over five floors and thoughtfully designed to maximise blue views, this family home offers the perfect holiday layout. Four indulgent bedrooms, three contemporary bathrooms, and generous living spaces offer an uplifting sense of freedom and space. Morva occupies a quiet area of Carbis Bay, yet is just moments away from the holiday buzz, five-star restaurants and wild landscapes of west Cornwall.  To find out more about how you can have a holiday like no other at Morva, click here to gain an insight into the owner’s passion for the property and Carbis Bay.

We had a wonderful week at Morva. It's such a well appointed property. Such luxury living in such a stunning location. Who could ask for anything more?

Step Inside

Arrive at picturesque Carbis Bay, on Cornwall's south coast, and retreat to the seaside sanctuary of Morva. Enter into the ground floor, where a spacious, sea view kitchen offers so much room to create a flavoursome holiday menu, or simply chill out at the breakfast bar and plan your adentures. Ascend the short staircase up to the top floor, where a sleek, sophisticated dining room pulls the family together. Guests will enjoy spotting boats and sea-life from the comfortable seating area. Descend to the lower third floor, where guests can pull open the glass doors, head out onto the balcony and let the ocean be a stage for leaping dolphins. The bedrooms are located on the lower first and second floors, each room delighting tired explorerers with indulgent beds and calming colour palettes. 

On Your Doorstep

From the living space, step out to the balcony to capture the glorious sea views, stretching down to Godrevy Lighthouse. The newly landscaped garden is an oasis of holiday appeal. Located on the lower level, the 3 terraces are spaced over 3 levels and include a large outside dining table for al fresco dining in style, pockets of seating areas and a fabulous sunken hot tub with views of the sea. This relaxed area is wonderful for laid-back lunches and drawn out summer evenings - that's if you're not too busy trying out all of the tempting eateries in Carbis Bay and St Ives; Ugly Butterfly, just down the road showcases spectacular views and delicious dishes made with locally sourced ingredients. Or, hop into St Ives where a true taste of Cornwall awaits; from fish and chips to fine dining. Carbis Bay (just a five-ten minute walk away), Porthkidney and Porthminster are your local beaches, offering soft white sands and so much opportunity for swimming, paddle boarding or simply soaking up the sights and sunshine of west Cornwall. Sheltered from prevailing winds, Carbis Bay is lapped by turquoise water and popular with families. You can leave the car at home because the St Ives branch line is moments away, making day trips to the bustling town, harbour and beach a breeze. Savour a Cornish pasty on the harbour wall, treat the group to a fine-dining experience in Cornwall’s foodie hot-spot, and explore the beautiful shops, local art galleries and artisan cafes, all in your own time. To immerse yourself in the coastal landscape, why not hire a boat for the day and feel a true sense of escapism? A Gem for all seasons, Morva is ideal for a quintessential ‘feet in the sand’ holiday, or a wrapped up winter getaway.
