  • "We found the property to be very clean and had absolutely everything we could possibly need, except toilet roll!"

    ! The location is quiet, yet within walkable distance of St Ives and the beaches (about 30 min walk, a little longer on the way back) nearest Coop about 15 min walk away.

    Lovely house, very clean and comfortable and everything you could possibly need for a great holiday, we really enjoyed our week at Rosewall Retreat

  • "Excellent standard of property all round and would return if in a large group."

    Have visited St Ives numerous times so know it well, but if new to the area you could do with more information in the property about places to visit locally and further afield. Appreciate that we all have different opinions but useful things like bus timetable into town, car park costs/times, cafes and pubs with good sea views etc come in handy. Only thing could ask to consider about the property was the pans have metal handles which get overly hot when cooking.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, as it is very important to us. We appreciate your comments and are pleased you were happy with the standard of the property. We are looking forward to welcome you back soon. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "We raised an issue in regard to no hot water."

    this was very poorly managed and resulted in me having to make numerous phone calls to numerous people/numbers, and we were without hot water from 5pm through to lunchtime on the following day. Very poor service was compounded by poor communication between the office in St Ives and Head Office. Cameron did pop by to apologise and bring wine, which was kind of him, but does not negate the failing of Sykes to have managed this situation, and to ensure that the property was fit for rental (apparently the lack of hot water was caused by a drop in pressure, due to a long standing leak in the under stairs cupboard). this should have been handled better. Very disappointing and in 27 degree heat, and beach days, hot water for showers was essential.

    Dear Deborah, Firstly, we would like to thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. We are sorry you experienced issues with the boiler resulting in no hot water. Here at Carbis Bay Holidays we endeavor to resolve issues as soon as possible for our guests. After listening to feedback from our guests regarding getting in touch with us here at the local office during your visit, we have changed our phone systems. For guests that are now in situ, if you encounter any kind of issue during the Carbis Bay Holidays opening hours, your call will come directly through to us when a team member is available. By taking the call in the local office, it cuts down the time in which it takes for us to action the inquiry. Once again, apologies for the experience you had. Sincerely hope you had a lovely holiday and we hope to invite you back in the future. Kindest Regards, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • ""We had a fantastic time, the weather was sweltering all week but plenty of ice cream and the sea cooled us down!"

    The house was just what we were looking for, clean, spacious and very well appointed. The road noise got a bit of getting used to, but didn't detract from the experience. Great beaches around St Ives and within a few miles drive. We also visited the Minack Theatre, well worth the experience! We would certainly recommend to friends and family!"

  • ""A lovely stay at Rosewall Retreat which is modern, stylish and well equipped property (perhaps some young children's games and books for rainy days) A bit of a walk into town and back but kept us all fit and worked off the ice creams!"

    We did catch the 'singing' bus when it was in town, which cost £3 for 2 adults and 2 children. St Ives is beautiful with lots of wonderful beaches, things to do and places to ear. Porthmeor beach best for body boarding. Recommend Hub Box for burgers, Cafe Pasta & Pizzeria, fish and chips places near RNLI on the front and Pedn Olva towards Porthminster beach, to and Alba bar for happy hour. Children do not want to leave. Would recommend and visit again, thank you!"

  • ""Stunning property!"

    Very clean with excellent facilities. We have loved our stay here despite the sun hiding for most of the week. The house is a leisurely 20 minute walk downhill to St Ives center but may take an extra 6 to 8 minutes back home - taxi fare is only £5 to £6 pounds. Highlights include St Ives center, Mousehole and Porthmeor Beach. Highly recommended. Thank you Carbis Bay Holidays"
