Interaction with guests
I like to make sure that all my guests staying at Bay Retreat firstly receive a warm welcome when entering the apartment. With everything spotlessly clean, fresh linen, fluffy towels and all they need to start there holiday. There is also a welcome information folder in the apartment which contains a wealth of information everything from train times, beach safety, maps to ideas for great days out. Also as I live close by I am able to ensure that standards are kept high and that guests always have a friendly point of call through their whole holiday experience from the moment you enquire you will be able to contact me direct.

About the neighbourhood
This splendid coastal apartment offers great accessibility to St Ives town centre and a multitude of surrounding golden sandy beaches. For walkers we are on the South West Coastal path which can be followed from the apartment either along the path into St Ives or in the other direction along the sand dunes and cliffs to Lelant and the Lelant Saltings. The popular West Cornwall Golf Club with its stunning views of St Ives Bay & Godrevy Lighthouse, is only a short drive away. St Ives is only a few minutes drive away and has a wealth of art galleries, boutique shops, museum, restaurants, bars, pubs, and cafes but not to forget the stunning scenery and beaches. Bay Retreat really does make the perfect base to have many an adventure exploring all the local attractions.
Getting around
Bay Retreat provides a great base for exploring magical Cornwall and is only a 5 walk down to the white sands and turquoise waters of Carbis Bay Beach. St Ives too is only a 5 minutes drive away there is also a regular bus service which runs from the top of the main St Ives road so great if you want to leave the car behind. Why not take an open top bus ride all around the coastal villages, just sit back and take in the views and hop on and off as you please. The nearest train stations are St Erth (main line) and Carbis Bay (branch line train which runs through Carbis Bay to St Ives). Here you can be in St Ives town in around 3 minutes taking in the wonderful views along the way.
