If you are looking for a special Cornish coastal holiday home, then look no further. Shamal is a truly beautiful holiday property with absolutely stunning interiors, allowing you to relax in complete comfort. The reverse level layout really does makes the most of the panoramic sea views across St Ives Bay, whether you are socialising in the lavish open plan living area, enjoying a quiet read in the study or are dining alfresco on the magnificent balcony.
After making your way up the striking, blue lit, oak staircase to the first floor, you are greeted into the spectacular open plan living area via glazed double doors. The living area is a bright, contemporary large space, with floor to ceiling windows allowing the light to stream in. Double doors lead out on to the balcony with far reaching views across St Ives Bay to Godrevy Lighthouse.
The cathedral style ceiling gives this room the real wow factor, along with solid oak flooring which has been laid throughout. There are two white leather sofas seating five, along with a single leather armchair and foot stall, white gloss coffee table and matching nest of tables. A glass unit houses the 42” LCD TV, Blu-ray DVD player, Sonos Bluetooth Soundbar and Nintendo Wii, with a good selection of DVD’s and games provided. There is a music system with stand alone speakers providing the perfect platform for you to set the music for your break.
The dining area is ideally positioned between the kitchen and living space, where the sea views can also be enjoyed. An oak and glass dining table with modern moulded seating seats six comfortably. A built in unit houses the iPod docking station, wireless internet, games and maps. If you would like to give the local cuisine a try, there is an array of superb restaurants within walking distance, in both Carbis Bay and St Ives. We thoroughly recommend Seagrass, The Seafood Café, Alba and Porthmeor Beach Café.
A peaceful area located on the third floor, accessed via a second staircase. A great room to escape to, either to read a good book or just take in the unparalleled sea views. There is also a 55″ Freeview Samsung television, PS4 with a few games and a sofa which doubles as a sofa bed for extra guests (bedding not provided).
The bespoke kitchen is beautifully appointed with imported Italian polished quartz work surfaces and ample storage is provided within the white gloss, soft close units. Cooking is made a pleasure with a five burner gas hob with extractor hood, integrated combinational oven, microwave, fridge-freezer and dishwasher. There is a one and a half bowl sink with a window which overlooks the rear of the property, along with all the utensils you could require to make a feast. There is a breakfast bar with two bar stalls, great for grabbing a quick snack or for socialising with the designated chef. For those that like to wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee, a “bean-to-cup” espresso machine is provided.
There is a separate utility room housing a washer/dryer, airer and ironing board with iron.

"We had such a lovely time at Shamal and the house met all our requirements
We loved the area too
Many great conveniences
We would love to visit again
"First class accommodation which met our requirements fully. Plenty of space and all facilities were excellent which is not always the case with self-catering.
Carbis Bay is a great location with plenty to do and see locally.
Nice touch to be met by our housekeeper on arrival.
"The view gets you as soon as you turn into the road and improves as you climb the stairs. The house is impressive looking, inside and out, and extremely well equipped. The furniture and beds are comfortable; the bathrooms extremely clean and high spec. The kitchen is spacious and well fitted out. The house is close enough to the beach and local amenities without feeling too urban. Helped by unexpectedly kind weather, this was a most enjoyable stay."
Our second visit Shamal and the house is just a lovely as we remembered. Thank you
Having a lovely time with some good quality waves! Went into town and had a cracking sausage roll and 9/10 for the pasty! Hoping to go back into the sea today, fingers crossed for me I don’t catch hypothermia!
Stunning, yet relaxing would love to buy it but sadly out of our budget. Many thanks
Lovely holiday relaxing, beautiful accommodation, would recommend place.

"We were all delighted with every aspect of our stay at Shamal, we enjoyed the coastal path from Carbis Bay to Lelant - with its fantastic views of the sea, cliffs and beaches - including the steps - and found The Badger at Lelant to provide excellent food, no matter what we chose from the menu."
"Fabulous time we had at Shamal it is a lovely property with great design – really loved it and we had a brilliant week"
"Thank you for a wonderful, luxurious, extremely clean holiday home in ideal location. Particularly enjoyed the views from the balcony. A very comfortable five star standard property. Enjoyed meal at Ocean Grill, St.Ives and very good cafe, Sunset Beach, Gwithian. As usual a wonderful holiday in this wonderful part of Cornwall."
"We enjoyed our holiday in Shamal, Carbis Bay and were quite satisfied with the cleanliness of the property. We found two good places to eat - The Alba - St. Ives and the Sea Food Cafe - St. Ives ( where they were particularly helpful with the child buggy). The coastal walk from Carbis Bay to St. Ives was very pleasant though sections with steps were difficult with the buggy."
