There is a definite holiday feel about the interior of this colourful penthouse apartment at Carbis Beach. The living area and master bedroom have patio doors opening onto the balcony which you may choose to leave open as you drift off to the sound of the waves lapping on the shore below. Everyone will enjoy being close to Carbis Bay beach and walkers will be spellbound by the stunning views on the nearby southwest coastal path.
Turquarze has a spacious lounge with a comfortable leather corner sofa, 55″ SUHD smart Samsung TV with full Sky package including Sky Sports and Movies, complimentary Superfast Wi-Fi, PlayStation 4 (PS4), Bowers & Wikins Zeppelin Airplay Ipod dock. The lounge opens to the balcony with table and chairs with spectacular views over the beach from Porthminster Point to Carrack Gladden (or Hawkes Point), then across the long sandy beach of Hayle and Gwithan all the way to Godrevy Lighthouse.
There is a “Welcome Guide” packed with information about St Ives and the varied attractions of St. Ives. You will also find O.S. maps, walks, pub and restaurant guides, as well as a selection of games, books, videos and DVDs and MP3’s.
Turquarze is furnished in a contemporary style, the spacious dining room comfortably seats four people. With your patio doors open, you can listen to the surf and enjoy the dramatic views across St Ives Bay. You are rather spoilt for choice with the number of quality restaurants nearby, some do offer a takeaway service alternatively, you can prepare your meal at home and enjoy comfort of your apartment. On warmer days of course you may choose to dine “al fresco”.
Apartment Turquarze has a newly refurbished high gloss modern kitchen with Corian worktops. The kitchen includes; American Fridge/Freezer, Smeg 5 burner glass gas hob, Bosch microwave, oven, dishwasher & washing machine with built in dryer, Delonghi toaster, kettle & coffee machine plus everything else you would expect from an apartment of this quality including the all important champagne bucket & flutes. There won’t be any arguments in this kitchen about washing up, either use the dishwasher or just enjoy looking out to sea across St. Ives Bay whilst standing at the sink.
Bedroom One with En-suite
The master bedroom has a large wardrobe, bedside cabinets and a chest of drawers so you’ll have plenty of storage space. Watch the 32″ Freeview TV from your comfortable king size leather bed . You have the same uninterrupted spectacular views as the living area without being overlooked and it is a pleasure to sleep with the curtains open whilst listening to the waves lapping on the beach below. Or if you prefer listen to your favorite music on the provided Bose bluetooth speaker. When it comes to waking up in the morning, you can draw the curtains and gaze across Carbis Bay beach to St Ives beyond. Step out of the bedroom doors and enjoy breakfast on the patio. From the master bedroom you have a complete view of the beach across the bay to St Ives and from Hayle to Godrevy Lighthouse.
Located to the rear of the property, bedroom two has twin beds with a contemporary luxury headboard. There is a bedside table with lamp and built-in mirrored double wardrobe with ample hanging and storage space. Bedroom two has blackout roman blinds and amtico flooring throughout.

We recently stayed at Turquarze and has a very happy family holiday, kids loved the entertainment and we loved the views, apartment was clean tidy and had everything we needed, can't fault it - we will be back
"We have had yet another fantastic holiday in Carbis Bay. The apartment is the best we have ever stayed in. As we were blessed with plenty of sunshine during our October stay."
"Lands End to Sennen Cove very enjoyable and not too long, also St Just to Cape Cornwall and obviously Carbis Bay to St Ives. The position of the apartment meant the train and also good bus services so that we were able to get about without having to use the car all the time. (We particularly enjoyed the 300 open top bus from St Ives to Penzance). Restaurant wise we enjoyed the Badger Inn at Lelant which we discovered near the end of our holiday."
"We really enjoyed Turquarze, only disappointed we cannot get it for Oct! ; we loved the view -so close to the beach from Caribs beach Apartments, we. Could even see the beach from the bed! Our fave meal has to be the Thai chef in Hayle-been going here now for 15 years! Also the Firehouse Restaurant in Fore Street is very good."
"We had a great time and must say Turquarze was one of the best places we have ever stayed at. The accommodation was superb and was the location and views from the apartment. We went on walks in both directions to St.Ives and also Lelant along the coastal routes. We thought the walk to Lelant was the better of the two with better scenery along the way albeit slightly longer. The use of the local train line was also an added bonus. You could not ask for another thing in the apartment itself , fully kitted out and very clean and tidy."
"We would like to thank you particularly for the delicious welcome basket and for decorating the apartment for our Christmas stay. The interior design of the Turquaze is very stylish and everything compliments the beautiful sea view outside."
"We had a wonderful week in Carbis Bay - our first in that part of the country. The accommodation and services offered were superb and we would not hesitate in recommending you and/or the apartment. We did try the beach path walks either side of Carbis Bay, one to St Ives and the other to Hayle, both of which we enjoyed immensely and of course the beach there was lovely. "
"The views from Turquarze are to die for and the short walk to the beach was like paradise.The whole experience lived up to our expectations. Our two young sons (5yrs and 2yrs) loved every minute including watching the trains going past out of the bedroom window. We found a wonderful place to visit for young families and that was Paradise Park which we visited twice."
"What a fantastic apartment with such stunning views. All of us enjoyed waking up to the glorious vista every morning ! Turquarze was very well appointed with virtually everything you would need for a complete self catering holiday even a cupboard full of games, dvd's and a play station. We enjoyed the walk to St Ives, enjoyed a meal in the Sloop Inn and the Ocean Grill both on the Wharf. Good, reasonably priced food with friendly staff."
"We have had some really good cottage holidays in the UK and Turquarze was our first apartment. The view from the balcony took our breath away enhanced by the wall to wall sunshine and the blue sea. Everyday was so enjoyable, particularly the walk to St Ives, the walk to Lelant and around Godrevy. We mostly left our car in the car park and only travelled to a few places which included St Michaels Mount and Mousehole. The rest of the time was spent around Carbis Bay. The apartment was very clean, well appointed and a delight to stay in. "
"We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Turquarze. The standard of accommodation was exceptional, along with the standard of cleanliness. The administration has gone without a hitch, so all in all a wonderful holiday. The two restaurants we frequented whilst at the apartment were La Casita in Carbis Bay and the Alba in St. Ives. Both restaurants provided wonderful food and good service."
"The accommodation was first class and was perfect for a lovely week in St Ives, we loved the place and may be back next year."

"Turquarze, is by far the best ! I cannot fault the welcome from Pauline and cleanliness of all rooms. Best local discovery was the Badger Inn, Lelant and the cream teams in the garden of the station house at Lelant railway station."
"We are thinking very often of our fantastic holidays we spent at Carbis Bay. We loved the apartment and especially the beautiful view on the beach, water. Everything was perfect: administration, service, standard of accommodation and fully met our expectations! We can recommend, walks on the costal path to St. Ives and Lelant, helicopter flight to Tresco (lunch at the New Inn), Porthminster Beach Café, Seafood Café at St. Ives"
"We enjoy fantastic holidays in Turquarze, everything was lovely, the apartment, the beach, the weather, the golf-course, the churches,friendly people. A very, very nice location, we love it! Especially the overlooking over the sea. Thanks a lot, we come back next year."

"We really enjoyed our stay in Turquarze. We found the administration efficient. The apartment was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Appreciated the "small" touches...the crisp white cotton bed linen, fluffy towels, good quality appliances, plentiful crockery and glasses, american fridge freezer...the list is endless."
We had a fantastic week in Turquarze - yet again. We loved the refurbishment and the standard of cleanliness, furnishings and equipment was again second to none. As usual, the holiday went really smoothly - from the booking, payment, key instructions, meeting with the housekeeper, through to the apartment itself - and all topped off with superb weather! We love our annual visit to Carbis Bay and wherever else we holiday it's never quite the same! Look forward to booking next year's holiday with you in the not too distant future and thank you for making our holidays so easy, relaxing and enjoyable
"We had a wonderful holiday, and were very impressed with Turquarze. Would certainly come again and recommend to friends. The setting was lovely, and the apartment brilliantly equipped. It certainly lived up to our expectations, and more. The view was amazing."
"As usual the accommodation was exactly the standard we have come to expect from Carbis Bay Holidays - excellent. We had a lovely relaxing week - exactly what was needed by all."
"Another lovely holiday & fabulous apartment at Carbis Bay, I think we may have found our favourite, (up to now anyway!). Everything was great & just as expected of your 5 star accommodation."
"Heather and myself have been very impressed with the service we have received from your company, from start to finish and by the quality of the accommodation itself. We have already been recommending the apartment to our friends and we look forward to returning in future. It's a brilliant apartment in a fantastic location and the attention to detail made it perfect."
Beautiful location and views and very thoughtfully equipped apartment made sure the wet we3ather didn't spoil our week.
