Bay Dream is a beautifully refurbished self-contained annexe in Carbis Bay. Fully equipped and ideally positioned, it's the perfect base from which couples and families can explore the coastal towns and beaches of St Ives Bay including Carbis Bay, St Ives, Lelant and Hayle which are all within either a short walk or short drive from the property.

Situated on a quiet residential street above Porthrepta Beach (Carbis Bay), this tastefully styled property has everything you’ll need for a restful and relaxing stay. There’s a lovely open plan living space where you’ll be able to unwind after sun-soaked beachy days, and a dining area for sharing meals or discussing the day’s plans over a coffee or glass of wine. The stunning kitchen comes amply equipped for rustling up home feasts but for guests who prefer dining out, restaurants like La Casita and The Cornish Arms are within minutes of the property.

The gorgeous separate bedroom with comfortable king size bed has its own flat screen TV, and the clean and contemporary bathroom which features a large walk-in shower, has a thoroughly designer-like edge to it as well as top-notch fittings throughout. Crisp white on the walls contrasts the deep blues and black of cabinetry and upholstery to create a superbly stylish space, and together with the quality of the facilities provided as well as its private outside space, makes this property a dream find.

Nearby Carbis Bay Beach is a 15-minute walk or 3 minutes’ drive away and here you’ll discover one of the most beautiful crescents of white sand and turquoise water in all of Cornwall. Spend the day relaxing on the beach, or if you fancy something a little more active, grab a paddle board or kayak from its beach-based surf school and take to the water for your own little adventure. The coast path from here to St Ives showcases some rather spectacular views over the bay, and being an easy 1.9km with very gentle ascents means it’s the perfect way for the whole family to enjoy the fresh sea air and wonderful scenery. For something slightly less energetic, Carbis Bay’s single-track railway on the St Erth line follows the same dramatic path along the coast and offers passengers a unique vantage point of St Ives Bay and beyond.

Welcome to Carbis Bay

Carbis Bay holidays have a little bit of everything. There’s a thriving culture scene, the beautiful beaches and of course, plenty of restaurants to keep the foodies happy. This is a destination where you can spend the morning immersing yourself in The Barbara Hepworth Museum, before tucking into a world-class meal with a view you can’t peel your gaze from. Just a short hop on the branch line train from bustling St Ives, Carbis Bay still manages to have its own personality. It’s the perfect place to forget the world, walk the coast path and just enjoy your time together.

Wonderful relaxing stay

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bay dream. 2 adults and our fur baby. The property is immaculately clean. It has everything you could need for a short break. Only minor disappointment was no washing machine but as it was only the two of us it wasn’t a major issue. It is a steep climb up from the beach so be prepared for a hike! Amazing walks along the south coast path. For info the beach to the right of Carbis bay ( along the costal path) is dog friendly all year round. There is a decent sized shop just across the road for essentials. Train to St Ives takes 3 minutes and is only £2 return! Would thoroughly recommend and be happy to return.

A great little gem

We had a fantastic stay at Bay Dream. The location was perfect, we had a great time exploring all the nearby beaches and towns. Although Carbis Bay beach is beautiful I would recommend a car to get around. Bay Dream was clean, cosy and a nice base to stay. They even allowed our dog ! We would definitely come back and would recommend to our family and friends.

Bay Dream

We had a great few days here. Has everything you need for a comfortable stay. There was a welcome pack on arrival and the place was spotlessly clean. Carbis Bay beach is less than 15 minute walk away. Buses run regularly from just outside the property. Plenty of places to eat locally and a great fish and chip shop too! There is a park opposite that we could take the dog onto. It does sit within the owners property but there is ample room for parking. It is on a main road but this didn’t disturb us at all as the property is well insulated. Owner really helpful too.

A Great Place To Stay

The house is very well layed out.We arrived and it was clean and welcoming with everything that you need for a holiday. It is on the main road to St. Ives but you don't hear any road noise. It's perfectly placed to get into St Ives. There are regular buses and you can get there in about 7 minutes. So you don't have to try to park or navigate the very narrow roads in the town. Its a good base to go sight seeing and also has fantastic facilities near by. A great fish and chip shop(be warned massive portions!!!)great pubs and restaurants,we highly recommend Cafe Casita. Great food and atmosphere.There are so many things to be positive about!!! Two small negatives,if you're taking your four legged friend ,the outside space is small but this is far outweighed by the fact that opposite the house there is a park. So that is great for giving your dog his exercise. If he hasn't had enough during the day.Also the walk to the beach from the house is longer than we thought and all down hill. We thought it would be nearer. We would definitely like to stay again.Thank you Grant and Emma.
