About Hawkes View

In light of the COVID-19 virus, we want to reassure you that this St Ives self-catering property is disinfected (hard surfaces and soft furnishings) after each guest stay. Please note that until we can resume normal service, check in time is 5.30pm and check out is 9am. An incredible luxury holiday home with extraordinary sea views! You will not fail but fall head over heels in love with Hawkes View with its coastal gardens, sun-soaked decking and the bewitching panoramic sea and beach views. The same simply breath-taking views are also enjoyed from the comfort of the expansive living area, king size and super king bedrooms of Hawkes View. Whatever time of year you plan to have a holiday, staying at Hawkes View will bring a beam to your faces. It’s a peaceful oasis of coastal charm and privacy, yet within a short distance of the energetic town of St Ives. There is a choice of 5 sandy beaches as well as renowned surf spots all within a very short driving distance. If being active is your idea of a great holiday, put on your walking shoes and thoroughly immerse yourselves with the local wildlife by walking the South West coast path to St Ives (a 20-minute walk) or down to Carbis Bay beach which can be reached in less than 10 minutes. If you want to cheat and take the relaxed approach, you can drive to St Ives in less that 5 minutes or take the most charming train ride ever from Carbis Bay taking in the astounding sea views along the way.

It would be unreservedly excusable if you opted to not move far from the house itself given just how incredibly comfortable and inviting the gardens, the view and the interiors are. The living space sweeps across the entire front of the house giving a family of 6 plenty of room to relax and sprawl out. Entertainment wise, there is something for everyone. In the living room there is an Apple TV with SKY Q installed as well as a DVD player and Bose Speaker for the music lovers. For the teenagers and playful adults, there is a table football to expend some energy over too or, if you prefer a lazier day, there is a 65" Samsung 4K UHD Smart TV with Cinema sound and Apple TV, a 4K Blue Ray DVD player, SKY Q and a X-Box 1 Gaming Platform. On both TVs, you have access to the huge choice that Netflix has to offer so whether the weather is good or bad, you can certainly be entertained! 

As you would expect, there is WiFi throughout the house plus good mobile phone reception too.

Hawkes View is a wonderfully inclusive home where the whole family (or romantic couples) can share the same space comfortably in the kitchen and dining room. The kitchen is excellently equipped so all gifted chefs whether part of the family or a privately paid in-house chef can explore culinary delights with local ingredients and enjoy them eaten alfresco or around the dining table. Why not light the BBQ on a balmy evening and extend the garden entertainment into the evening?

Every holiday home also needs to be practical in order to be comfortable; there is a ground floor cloakroom with toilet and wash basin, a utility area with washer/ dryer where, from here, a door leads to a paved area with rotary line. There is also a warm outside shower so no need to worry about taking sand throughout the home after a fun-filled beach day!  

We think everyone wants to book a holiday home in Carbis Bay where the windows handsomely frame sun rises and sun sets over the sea. Hawkes View does exactly that, in spades!  The master bedroom has a super king size bed and the other a king size each with cushioned window seats, wardrobes and bed side tables. The twin room is a spacious area for children to call their own. There are two bathrooms on the same floor as the bedrooms, each within a couple of strides of the bedrooms and both with beautiful Temple Spa complimentary toiletries. A travel cot and fixed stair gate on the first floor hallway are provided for the younger families staying.

We believe you will agree with us how magical Hawkes View is once you've stayed. It truly is one to re-book and come back to, time and time again.

This House really does have the Wow factor throughout the property, the standard of furniture, fixtures & fittings is incredible, it has everything that you need with so many thoughtful touch's too. We loved coming down every morning & looking at that stunning view that changed daily. 

The kitchen is so well equipped & you are definitely not short of anything if you are preparing meals. There was a very thoughtful welcome basket with many locally sourced treats that made a lovely start to our holiday. 

The holiday company Orange Roofs were amazing with us from the first phone call when enquiring about the accommodation & throughout our entire stay. They were extremely helpful & polite when we had questions & got back to us very quickly. They efficiently sorted out a gas fire not lighting issue that we had & had a person fix it straight away as as well as checking up with us that all was as we would like it. 

We also felt very reassured in these Covid times as the place was absolutely spotless & we were very happy that the right procurations had been taken. 

There was information given to us digitally via the Orange Roof app with everything that we needed to know about the property. This was an extremely detailed guide to how everything in the house worked (remotes, cookers, heating, speakers, recycling, WiFi etc) 

There is plenty of decking space to relax whilst taking in that view & lots of space to eat outdoors, there is also a lovely little garden that is a private oasis just below the house. 

Hawkes View is a wonderful base to be able to explore Cornwall, fantastically located with in easy reach of St Ives. There is a great footpath with amazing views along the way that leads you in to the heart of St Ives.  Theres another path that takes you right on to the beach under a very impressive viaduct or if you need Carbis Bay Train Station that's just 5 minutes from the accommodation too. 

We very highly recommend this property & the booking company. We  loved our time there so much that we have already rebooked for next year!

We have just had a great time at Hawkes View! We've been coming down for some 12-13 years now and have stayed in Hawkes view for the past 6 years. 
This year was different as new owners have bought it and it has moved from Cornish Gems to Orange Roofs. This year was by far the most comfortable, the mattresses were much better in the two sea facing rooms, the external outside patio area is so much tidier now they have fitted decking down the side, the patio seating is superb (we hope folks don't leave the owners cushions out in rain, they may want a Polite notice on the Cushion stores to that end) and the fresh decorations, lighting, pictures etc are lovely. 
Our children loved the Xbox and big TV (and were quick to point out that it's bigger than the one at home) and despite my best efforts -with our daily swims and crab finding down at the beach- have managed to clock up what they would consider a decent number of hrs gaming and watching kids YouTube (who knew watching someone else gaming mine craft was a thing!).
We will be back and to that end we have already booked 3 weeks next year. 
Our experience of the interaction with Orange Roofs has been excellent. We have found them to be very quick to respond, clear and helpful on all matters as well as being very fair, flexible and timely with your comms during the turbulent and uncertain pandemic months. Had a good chat with Rod the housekeeper too who was also lovely.
I think you can be rightly proud of Orange Roofs and the way it interacts with customers, it must be challenging at times and take a lot of work, professionalism and patience to satisfy the expectations of so many folks ;-)
