Our home

Our holiday home in Carbis Bay (just one mile along the coast from St Ives in Cornwall England), is a contemporay detached house on a hill above Carbis bay beach. Sea views from the lounge look out to the beach and headland surrounding the famous Godrevy lighthouse. Carbis Bay itself has been internationally recognised as one of the most beautiful in the world. The house has a large lounge, large kitchen/dining room and a gallery landing which gives it a light and airey feel. Recently listed as a 5* Gold property by the English Tourist Board, it is furnished and maintained to a very high standard. A twenty minute coastal walk or 5 minute coastal train journey takes you into St Ives, with its range of beautiful beaches, surfing, fine restaurants and of course the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Museum.

Please Note: While we still have plenty of availability in 2019, we no longer have any capacity for taking more holidays this year. We can therefore only consider non simultaneous exchanges for 2019/2020.

Who we are

  1. We are Kelvin and June, a married couple (age 67 and 61) with two grown up daughters. We both retired in 2006 and are spending our time, before the arrival of grandchildren, travelling the world. We have now completed 15 successful exchanges. Non simultaneous exchanges are fine for us, as this house is used solely as our holiday home.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

St Ives is located at the tip of Cornwall and benefits from a (for England) warm sunny and balmy climate courtesy of the gulf stream. This part of Cornwall has numerous beautiful rocky coves and beaches to explore. As Britain's number one beach holiday destination, there are a host of attractions and activities for all ages within the surrounding area. High class golf courses abound, with two particularly tough links courses very nearby. Surfing beaches and surf schools are dotted all along this part of the Cornish coast. The historic capital of Cornwall, Truro, is a short drive away. As are many renowned places made famous by the writer Daphne du Maurier, including the real Jamaica Inn and also places featured in the TV series Poldark. Carbis Bay beach, a short walk from the house, has been designated a Blue Flag beach for 2019.
