Compass Point is a modern and superbly well equipped seaside holiday property located in the prestigious Compass Point complex which has a prime seaward facing position in Carbis Bay and is just a short walk down to the golden sands and clear turquoise waters of Carbis Bay Beach. The surrounding area is dominated by National Trust headlands and dramatic coastal cliff walks with the South West Coastal Path right on your doorstep.

Guests also have easy access to the stunning communal sea terrace of the Compass Point complex which has panoramic sea views towards St Ives harbour in one direction and Godrevy Lighthouse in the other and this allows outside dining and sunbathing. There is also a private car parking space which is big enough for 2 cars which is a very rare feature and the close proximity to the small railway station gives guests the great option of leaving the car and taking the very popular tourist train into St Ives, taking just a few minutes along a single track and which follows a wonderfully scenic path along the coast.

Internally, the apartment has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms which is a rare feature in St Ives and enjoys stunning sea views from the Living area and Master Bedroom across St Ives Bay. Compass Point is beautifully staged to Cornish Tourist Board Standards and will sleep up to 6 guests in total comfort. The Kitchen is extremely well equipped with integrated appliances including a Dishwasher, Washing Machine and very large Fridge Freezer. The dining area and living areas are open plan with a large dining table and 6 chairs and there is a large three seat sofa, two seat sofa and additional sofa chair where guests can really relax and enjoy the sea views. There is a large flat screen television, DVD player, Stereo system, Wifi internet access and a selection of classic board games.

There is a modern family bathroom with a large bath with shower over with an additional en-suite shower room off the Master Bedroom. There are two large double bedrooms with a flat screen TV in the Master Bedroom and in the third bedroom are two single beds.

Outside there is a separate storage area for storing the patio furniture for the terrace and which can also be used for bikes and surfboards.

In terms of local facilities, the nearest supermarket is a Tesco which is less than 5 minutes drive away off the main A3074 road into St Ives and where there is a great Costa Coffee with fantastic sea views and which also has free Wifi. There are also banks, hairdressers, a chemist, newsagents and general stores all a short walk away in the centre of Carbis Bay. During the day when on the beach there is a cafe and food outlet as well as a bar within Carbis Bay Hotel.

Please feel free to contact us for addition information of the apartment and also for useful web sites for planning your stay in Cornwall. Compass Point is available all year round and is a great escape destination during the winter months. St Ives is especially popular at both Christmas and New Year and dates can be tailored specifically for your requirements. There is also the St Ives music and arts festival held in September.

St. Ives is a 20 minute walk away along the coast path, whilst the frequent trains take about 2 minutes if you don't feel like walking. Carbis Bay itself has a beautiful sandy beach with a cafe and an excellent hotel, though the walk back is rather steep!

                                                                A wonderful apartment overlooking Carbis Bay, ideally situated for the sandy beach and either catching the train or walking into St Ives. So many things to do and places to visit within easy travelling distance. We had an amazing three generation family holiday with something for everyone.

                                                                bright, tidy apartment in great location

                                                                We booked this apartment for our family of 4 plus one other for 12 nights at the end of a long UK trip. Brian was very helpful during booking answering a stream of questions and providing all the information we needed. The apartment was clean, well set up and the views are superb. We had everything we needed during our stay. The walk to St Ives was enjoyable if not exactly relaxing but it was nevertheless great to be able to get there without parking hassles. I do not hesitate to recommend this property.

                                                                A perfect holiday

                                                                We had a great holiday at Compass Point, the location is great with lovely views out over the sea and its just a short walk down to the beach at Carbis Bay and where you can also pick up the coastal path. The terrace provides plenty of outdoor space if the weather is nice and the apartment is both very clean and well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. Communication with the owners was all very efficient and all in all a perfect stay and we'll certainly recommend this property to friends and family.

                                                                Basic and clean

                                                                Carbis Bay is just less than 2 miles from St Ives. You can walk along the picturesque coastal path into St Ives in 20 Minutes in one direction or the village, beaches, dunes and golf course of Lelant in the other. If you are looking for the magnificent scenery of St Ives Bay but want a slightly quieter life then Carbis Bay is a great base. The direct access to the St Ives branch railway line means that the car may never be required. Historic St Ives itself is renowned for its cosmopolitan mix of restaurants and cafes, art galleries, beaches and scenery and whether you are simply looking for a week on one of the many beaches, or an energetic mix of surfing, golf, walking or diving, there is something here for you. Further afield, Penzance, St Michael's Mount, Lands End, beautiful Sennen Cove (surfing), Padstow (cooking courses with Rick Stein), Newquay (indoor water world) and St Austell (Eden Project) are all within easy reach either by Car or Train.
