Welcome to Sandbanks, a wonderful light filled detached home in the popular area of Carbis Bay.  Breathtaking views from the large decking area which overlooks the bay and away up the North coastline.  A perfect family home from which to enjoy the West Cornwall coastline.  

The Property

Open plan in style, Sandbanks is predominantly arranged over one floor with stairs leading to the converted attic/master bedroom with lighthouse views.  Decked out in natural and cream hues and punctuated with striking artwork and colourful soft furnishings the house offers a truly luxurious ambiance, a holiday home from home.  The state of the art spacious and extensively equipped contemporary kitchen offers all you need to enjoy some home cooking during your stay, the wooden kitchen table with bench style seating can be dressed up for supper or a versatile place for children to play.  From the kitchen, french doors lead to the garden.  A pretty collection of bedrooms have each been individually styled including coastal inspired artwork, nautical stripes and the finest luxury linens. 

Our 2nd time in Cornwall with you and from start to finish the whole experience was a real pleasure, thank you and we will be back again next year.

A wrap around veranda offers the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the panoramic sea views be it sunny breakfast or early evening cocktail.  There is a gated path at the bottom of the terraced lawned garden which leads down to Carbis Bay beach itself.  A short drive in the car leads you to St. Ives or enjoy a pleasant walk along the coastal path taking in the views.  With the luxury of allocated parking, you really can come and go at ease whilst exploring some of the most beautiful scenery Cornwall has to offer.
