  • "We have been booking with Carbis Bay Holidays for a few years now."

    I think Azure is looking a bit tired now. I also feel that the glass on the balcony would give some shelter from the wind and would enable us to sit in the balcony a bit more.

  • "We stayed at the property around 7 years ago so had happy memories and we weren’t disappointed this year."

    The views from the bedroom and sitting room are stunning and very therapeutic. The only comment we would make is about the bedding. It looks tired and is yellowing and the duvet has also seen better days. It’s a shame that this one factor detracted from the quality of the rest of the apartment.

    Dear Mrs Doohan, thank you for your email and we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay again at Azure. We are sorry to hear your comments regarding the bedding and have passed these on to the Housekeeper that looks after the property for their attention. We do hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "The appartment was just like the photos and fitted out to a high standard and the views are absolutely stunning, although the main bathroom could do with an upgrade."

    This said it was still a lovely place to stay. The radiator in the 2nd bedroom wasn't working a call to the housekeeper and the next day it was rectified and a phone call was received to say work completed. So I would recommend staying at the Azure.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and would recommend the apartment. Kind Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

    If you could change anything it would be check in earlier and checkout later- 9am is very early and a lighter duvet. That said we will be back.

    Dear Ms Redmond, We appreciate you taking the time to submit your feedback.

  • "The property was excellent, as it has always been."

    My only comments would be:- The duvets were really too heavy for the summer months The toaster was a touch erratic (occasionally the right-hand slot only toasted one side of the bread and all the slots toasted one side much more quickly than the other) The electrics are a touch sensitive. The power tripped three times during our stay, always when I had the oven running and then switched on the kettle; the kettle itself has a slightly suspect switch which I think might have been the cause. On the ‘plus’ side, when I raised the issue that our parking permit showed the wrong month and days, a replacement with the correct dates was provided very quickly.

    Dear Martin, Firstly, thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. Lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay at Azure. The points you have raised have been passed over to the housekeeper to look into the kettle and toaster, and then we will rectify accordingly. Apologies for the parking permit having the wrong date on, but we are pleased to hear we it was resolved as soon as possible. We hope to invite you back in the near future, Kind Regards, Owner Relations Team, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

    A few broken items that had not been removed or repaired. Bathroom needs updating now. Been the sane for 13 years we have been coming. Unsure why the rental has increased by over 50percent for 2022. We have been coming for 13 years but next year we will not be booking hence the 0 for recommeding you as first year you have taken over and the 0rice has gone up over 1000 pound!!

    Dear Jody, Firstly, we would like to thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. We have forwarded on your feedback to the housekeeper to address the issues regarding broken items. In regard to pricing, this has been set due to the demand for holidays and properties in St Ives and Carbis Bay for 2022, however they are constantly being monitored and reviewed. Sincerely hope you had a lovely holiday and we hope to invite you back in the future. Kindest Regards, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • "“Firstly may I say thank you, we had a lovely time."

    The great thing about staying here in Carbis Bay is that you could retreat to your own quiet haven when you've had your fill of the St Ives hustle and bustle. And the proximity to the train station makes it easy to get around without necessarily having to use the car. Our decision to get away for the new year was quite last minute, however, the booking process was very efficient and Carbis Bay Holiday's couldn't have been more helpful in making the arrangements. The apartment was really lovely. Very clean and tastefully decorated, it had everything we could possibly need for our luxury New Year break. The uninterrupted sea views from both the living area and the master bedroom were just what we needed to help us unwind after a hectic year.” J.Newhouse

  • ""Azure as very clean and comfortable and the view was everything we remembered, the decking furniture was a great advantage and we used it a lot even on showery days – very comfortable and easy to move a welcome bonus."

    The train line from the accommodation into St Ives is a real bonus in wet weather but the walk to and from St Ives remains a really good experience. We went to the Minnack theatre which is a really good place to go especially if you book tickets in advance – the staff there are very good and what a view both of the play and the bay beyond – I can’t think of anywhere as good as this and within an easy 30 mins drive of the apartment. An experience even if you don’t go to the play. The bay near the theatre is absolutely beautiful. We used La Casita, the food so good and the fish specialities so varied that it is well worth a visit and virtually on the door step. We also found the Watermill Inn in Lelant to be really good in terms of food, beer varieties and the Gardens are very good for children." J. Ashcroft

    It was great having two separate bathroom areas which were modern and clean. The apartment is very well equipped, clean, and has everything you need to make it a home from home. We visited St Michael's Mount for a second time which is a must for visitors to the area. We also visited Falmouth and took the ferry across to St Mawes which is a very picturesque village. Always nice to browse around St Ives as there are so many nice shops and galleries to look at. In terms of evening entertainment, we catered for ourselves in the apartment most nights given that it was very comfortable. " J. Savidge

    The luxuriant foliage, bird song, and lovely views out to sea made the patio decking a high spot for me.

We give the accommodation and service at Azure 5 stars; our expectations were more than met." C. Hesselgren-Roche

  • ""We all had a great time and a great week in Azure."

    There is nothing really to fault. The apartment is furnished to a very high standard. The views, the location, the apartment and the weather combined to make a wonderful break. We went walking a few times and the walk between Carbis Bay and St. Ives is fabulous. Also, we went to Lands End but parked the car in Sennen Cove. The walk to Lands End is about a mile and what views! Then we drove back via St. Just to St. Ives. In fact the only complaint we have is that the week went too quickly! " J. Ryan

    Azure was great, the boys had fun watching the children’s channels on Sky. We didn't travel very far, went to Penzance for a boat trip to see seals but saw more at Godrevy Cove.

About the location

CARBIS BAY

St Ives 2 miles ; Hayle 3.5 miles ; Penzance 8.5 miles

Just a short drive from iconic St Ives, the seaside village of Carbis Bay is best-known for its beautiful stretch of pure white sand. With turquoise waters and sheltered conditions, the beach feels almost subtropical and is the perfect spot for a good old-fashioned day by the sea. The beach is also home to the Ocean Sports Centre, so if sunbathing is not really your thing, why not hire a kayak or SUP and get out on the water instead. Or why not treat yourself to a Spa day at the delightful hotel which overlooks the beach and has a fabulous terrace where cocktails can be enjoyed in the Cornish sunshine? Carbis Bay has a small range of local shops and restaurants as well as a fish & chip takeaway and railway branch line. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country; St Ives additionally makes for a great day out, with plenty of galleries to explore. The quayside town of Hayle also isn't far and is home to activities for the all the family, including a golf and a wildlife sanctuary. The Godrevy Nature Reserve and Penwith Heritage Coast are also within easy reach from Carbis Bay, providing outdoors and watersports plans with even more activities to partake in, including coasteering and birdwatching. Carbis Bay is truly a wonderful holiday location for those wanting to experience Cornwall's breathtaking coastline.
