This first floor penthouse apartment, boasting magnificent sea and beach views from all rooms, is the perfect base for families and couples to enjoy a relaxing break away.

Enjoy breakfast, coffee and relaxation on the glorious balcony of this magnificent, first floor duplex penthouse apartment, with a stunning upper floor bedroom suite with cot. The apartment boasts panoramic sea and beach views from two bedrooms and from the living room through to the kitchen. Relax and unwind with the constant sounds of the ocean. Serena has the perfect beachfront location, and makes an ideal romantic getaway for couples all year round, or a base for a family beach holiday. The apartment is comfortably furnished with luxurious touches and everything you need to ensure you unwind in style. Towels (including giant bath sheets) and 400 thread count silky smooth bedding are from the White Company, and the comfortable mattresses are from Hypnos. All cabinet furniture is from the same high quality matching range throughout the apartment, the upholstered furniture is Italian leather, the flooring is Amtico Signature throughout, and the kitchen has high quality appliances, designer cutlery, crockery and cookware. In the living room there is a 55" UHD TV and Bose TV sound system, with Sky Ultimate package including Entertainment Max channels, Sports and Cinema, and in the bedrooms there is Now TV offering Sky movies, box sets, entertainment and kids. There is also a Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin speaker. In the bedrooms there are large TVs, Blu-ray players and a Bose bluetooth speaker.

There is a super kingsize bed, as well as Italian leather electric reclining chairs, 65" UHD TV, Bose sound system, Blu-ray player and a Bose bluetooth speaker. The en-suite has a beautiful free standing bath.

The apartment is located in a very special position, directly overlooking Carbis Bay with golden sands and turquoise seas, yet just minutes from the busy picturesque harbour and town of St Ives, with bustling tiny streets full of interesting shops, cafés, restaurants and art galleries, and where you can dine alfresco in one of the many waterfront restaurants. The area boasts a number of beautiful beaches and coves. The coastal railway links St Ives to the Penzance mainline, one of the most scenic rail journeys in the UK, providing easy access to St Ives town, Hayle and Penzance. It is only a couple of minutes’ walk to the scenic coastal railway. The spectacular, natural light has attracted artists to the area for centuries and is the proud home to The Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Gallery and Museum. Seals, dolphins and basking sharks are regular visitors to the bay, and from St Ives you can take the road (B3306) to Sennen, which is one of the most scenic in Britain. Also worth a short drive or walk is Trencrom Hill where both the Atlantic and English Channel coasts can be seen from Godrevy to St Michael’s Mount; or take the cliff walk east past Porth Kidney Beach towards Lelant for views not to be missed! A visit to the Minack Theatre is also stunning, where the view from the car park takes in the beautiful blue Porthcurno Sea. The historic town of Marazion, with St Michael’s Mount rising from the sea, can be reached on foot by causeway at low tide, or by small ferry at high tide. Head north up the coast to the long, sweeping beach and sand dunes at Hayle, stretching up to Godrevy Lighthouse, Gwithian for surfing and beyond to Portreath.

    Excellent Property kept to a very high standard. Location was perfect to access St Ives on the train and have access to Carbis beach. Highly recommended.

    Absolutely stunning appartment.Views were breathtaking.Sound of the ocean at night,heavenly. The only thing I have to comment on is the matresses were very hard as well as the sofa.We tried sleeping on both double rooms and by day 3 are backs were killing us.It was a shame as we hadnt had a holiday for 1 year and needed a proper rest. Otherwise its a perfect 10 in all areas. The flowers and welcome pack of milk/bread/cereal was a lovely touch.SO much care has gone into making this very high end.Lots of dvds/books for rainy days.The showers were super amazing! So high tech.
