Immerse yourself in holiday luxury and check into Westhome for the perfect beside-the-seaside escape. This wonderful family home oozes coastal style and sets the scene for a memorable stay in all seasons from winter weekends to extended summer weeks full of adventure. The open plan living and dining spaces really are the hub to the house offering a welcoming holiday ambiance of light and space before spilling out onto the wonderful veranda with jackpot views of Carbis Bay and West of Cornwall coastline. Three beautiful bedrooms and three bathrooms offer generous accommodation for up to 6 guests and Westhome welcomes dogs to join in the holiday. Wonder from your door to sandy shore and soak up the sea and sand of Carbis Bay beach.

The Property

Westhome is set within the quieter residential area of Carbis Bay and offers a serene base away from the bustle of St Ives. Arrive into the hallway and step into the open plan living and dining space, from the moment you arrive the cool coastal hues and considered decor ensures a relaxed backdrop, your holiday starts here! The living room offers ample seating for all as you sink into comfortable sofas after a day on the coast and enjoy long overdue catch ups over a glass of wine or simply enjoy a lazy morning with the daily papers. The dining table can be dressed to impress or kept casual for lunches on the go or early suppers. The smart modern fully fitted kitchen is located just off the dining room offering a creative haven for the culinary chef in the party. The king bedded room can be found on the ground floor with ensuite bathroom and private doors to the veranda. A seperate ground floor shower room is perfectly placed just off the hallway. A small snug room offers a quiet break out room away from the adult chit chat where children can enjoy a favourite board game or master their snooker skills on the small snooker table. Climb the central staircase to the first floor with the wonderful master bedroom with super king bed and charming twin bedroom dressed in a nautical theme. The family bathroom is no less considered adding a touch of luxury to your post surf pamper. 

Stunning views very quiet and restful. Very homely and just what we needed a holiday with no hassle. We had forgotten just how great British holidays are. Best place we have stayed in years. Thanks to all at Cornish Gems

A beautiful spacious veranda is set across the front of Westhome against the backdrop of the ever changing coastal views, throw open the double set of glass doors from the living area for the ultimate outside in atmosphere. Dine in style al fresco as the sun sinks into the bay below. To the rear of the house is a raised lawn area with considerately positoned garden bench and further dining table, discover your own secret sundowner spot. Whether you are new to Carbis Bay and nearby St Ives or it is a seasonal holiday haunt, the magic and beauty of the white sand and azure blue waters is hard to beat. The award wining Carbis Bay beach is within walking distance and now includes a tempting new cafe and bar. Choose to hop on the branchline train as it hugs the coast leading into the heart of St Ives, a wonderful cosmopolitan harbour town attracting world travelled guests to the myriad of galleries and artisan shops all set to the picture perfect backdrop of the harbour. Further afield, take to the coast road heading further West and enjoy the myth and legend of Land's End with its iconic high cliffs and neighbouring white sand beaches of Sennen and Porthcurno. 

Westhome is no ordinary holiday home, the thoughtful style and open plan layout welcome guests to this very special corner of Cornwall.

Absolutely stunning property. Could not fault it in any way.

Debra Bird

Our stay at Westhome was fabulous. The property was spacious, clean, and had fantastic views over Carbis Bay. It was ideally situated for visits to St Ives. More importantly, I feel the property was exactly as advertised. So often, you think you have booked a great property only to be disappointed on arrival. Not so with Westhome; it was perfect in every way. Thank you.
