The architecturally designed split level layout is perfect for holiday life with a spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen space set across the first floor and collection of 3 boutique style bedrooms set within the first and ground floors. Sandsifters Retreat is as perfect for Summer stays and an Autumn escape, from a full house to couples, guests will enjoy the luxury of the location and the oh so stylish coastal ambience. 

The Property

Aptly named, arrive to the smart newly created Sandsifters Retreat located in the heart of Carbis Bay, West Cornwall. The entrance opens into the first floor hallway which leads to the wonderfully generous open plan living spaces flooded with natural light from the full height sliding doors. Relax in the comfort of the seating area as you sink into oversized sofas and stylish armchairs, gather as a group for pre-dinner drinks overlooking the bay or cosy up for storm watching days beside the fire in the cooler months. The considered interior style evokes the cool blue hues of the coastal location against a chic contemporary white backdrop. A modern fully fitted kitchen neatly blends with the open plan spaces, feel right at home as you prepare your holiday menu and join in the conversation within the hub of the home. Bedroom three is located on the first floor with a soft colour palette and swish ensuite bathroom. A central oak and glass staircase leads down to the ground floor. A separate snug room offers a tempting break out space for children to escape adult life, pop on a good movie or set up the board games. Bedrooms one and two are both ensuite and front facing with beautiful sea views and offer access to the ground floor garden. Sandsifters Retreat oozes superior standards and thoughtful style setting the scene for your luxury holiday beside the sea.

Cornish Gems are delighted to welcome Sandsifters Retreat to the Carbis Bay portfolio of luxury Gems - seascapes and coastal style combine!

Designed to capture the blue bay views, the first floor offers a glass front with sliding doors that can be neatly slid back to reveal the fresh Cornish air. Step out onto the balcony and soak up the views heading away up the coast towards Godrevy Lighthouse and the white sands of Hayle. Watch the boats go by from your very own vantage point and check the surf before heading to the beach. The main garden area with panoramic sea views from St Ives to Godrevy Lighthouse is accessed via the ground floor bedrooms or to the side of the house. Dine in al fresco style at the modern dining table and chairs as the sun sets in the bay, from lazy breakfasts to celebratory suppers. Stretch out on the sun loungers or play family games on the astroturf lawn. An outside shower is considerately placed to the side of the house ready for your post salty surf wash down. If you are new to Carbis Bay or it is your families most favourite Cornish spot, enjoy the quieter ambience away from the hubbub of busier St Ives. Carbis Bay beach is within easy walking access, wander down the road to the white sand and crystal clear sheltered waters. The Carbis Bay Hotel and Spa welcome non-residents or take advantage of the complimentary couples membership as part of your stay at the house and book yourself a pamper afternoon. The branch line train shuttles to and fro along the coastline into the centre of St Ives. The West of Cornwall offers some of Cornwall's most beautiful beaches and seascapes, spend the day exploring the wild West including Sennen, Land's End, Mousehole or head North to the high cliffs and coastal villages of Padstow and Port Isaac.

From lazy days to an action packed agenda, stay a while at Sandsifters Retreat for an unforgettable Cornish escape.
