Ky Sim
Carbis Bay

£778 - £2048 per week

Close to the shores of Carbis Bay is Ky Sim, a detached, modern, bungalow, with a secluded garden and private parking, providing the perfect retreat for families at any time of the year. Ky Sim offers guests a choice of four beautifully presented bedrooms all decorated in a calming palette, with a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast bar area, a great space to cook up a feast for friends and family. Leading off the living space, sliding doors open out onto the garden and undercover raised deck with bbq, this is THE, place to dine al fresco. The enclosed garden is great for guests of all ages and has plenty of room to play games, or just relax with a glass of your favourite tipple, on a summers eve.

The property is ideally positioned to explore the Cornish coastline, from the fabulous sandy beaches of Carbis Bay and Porthkidney, both under a 10 minutes walk, to the picturesque harbour town of St Ives, or in the other direction to Hayle, with its five miles of unspoilt beach. Also, within easy reach, are other major attractions such as the world-famous St Michaels Mount, or further afield the Eden Project. If you don't wish to take the car, then take advantage of the scenic branch line, which will transport you along to St Ives within minutes and explore the vibrant town, with its shops, cafes, and galleries and five beaches. For days when you would like to stay closer to home the sheltered cove of Carbis Bay with its turquoise waters and white sands, can be found just over 5 minutes walk away from the property, where you can spend the day learning to Sup, Kayak, or perhaps just relax with a good book on the beach. The cove is also home to the Carbis Bay Hotel and Spa, with beachside café. Whether you wish to be out all day exploring the coastline of West Cornwall and beyond, or have a day relaxing, Ky Sim could just be your perfect holiday home-from-home!

September 2023

We stayed here in the last week in August 2023 and wow what lovely accommodation. The location is perfect and the accommodation is so spacious. We had 7 people staying for the week and it felt like we had plenty of space.

We got the train into St Ives and there was plenty of room on the street for 2 cars.

I don’t want to big it up too much, though, as we want to make sure we can come back again!

Top tip

Take a ride on the St Ives branch line, one the most picturesque train journeys in Britain!

Carbis Bay beach

A holiday in Carbis Bay means you’ll have one of the most beautiful beaches just a short walk away from your holiday cottage. With crystal-clear turquoise waters, enjoy swimming and other watersports, with kayaks and paddleboards available to hire from the watersports centre at the beach. You’ll also be in close proximity to the golden sandy beaches at Lelant and Hayle and the popular beaches in St Ives; you could try a different beach every day of the week!

Walks in Carbis Bay

Leave the car at home and take the 20 minute walk into St Ives, enjoying the views along the way. This gentle walk is a must at least once during your stay.

For nature lovers, the Steeple Woods Nature Reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife and plants. Relax and explore the forty acre space which overlooks St Ives.

For the more adventurous soul, the St Michael’s Way is a 12.5 mile trek starting at nearby Lelant, and finishing up at the stunning St Michael’s Mount in Marazion. If the walk back doesn’t seem too appealing, you can always ride the open-top bus all the way back!
