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 stunning base for a family beach holiday. This beautiful second floor apartment, with panoramic sea views across St Ives Bay, includes a beachfront covered balcony - the perfect place for enjoying breakfast or a drink. It is comfortably furnished with luxurious touches and everything you need to ensure you unwind in style. Towels and bedding are from the White Company, and the comfortable mattresses are from Hypnos. All furniture is from the same high quality matching range throughout the apartment, and the kitchen has granite worktops, high quality appliances and designer cutlery, crockery and cookware. Additionally, the lighting can be varied in brightness. Complimentary passes to the Harbour Hotel and Spa, which has a heated, indoor pool, gym and sauna, are also included.
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 al fresco 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.
There are many small, colourful fishing boats dotted around the harbour at St Ives. 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 area is a paradise for walkers and bird watchers, with nearby Hayle Estuary and Marazion Marshes close by. The historic town of Marazion with St Michaels 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. The apartments have a gated entrance with private car parking and gardens, with a private pathway to the beach road. Horse riding and the West Cornwall Golf Club are nearby. Beach 500 yards. Shop and pub 1 mile, restaurant 500 yards.
