Not absolutely spotless when we arrived, nothing terrible but could have been cleaned more thoroughly. Reviewed by DavidJul 2022 "A great stay as usual thanks." However upon departure I had cause to move the dresser in the double bed bedroom with the ensuite. something had rolled off the top and underneath. There was thick dust on the top of the skirting. Also, on stripping the bed in readiness for our departure, there was again a fair quantity of dust between the headboard slats... and the floor under the bed held a fine layer of dust which could only be seen when the sun shone through the window at certain times of the day - if you were looking that is- in all the above cases it was obvious that attention had not been paid to this over several cleans and given that we lost most of our booked first day in order that a 'covid deep clean' could be paid attention to, it was obvious this had not been done. There were a few crumbs of food in the kitchen wall cupboard too, right of fridge... Clearly NOT a deep COVID clean that we experienced when we stayed in White Sails the previous October (2020). Also, the towel radiator in the ensuite bathroom did not work at all... The front entrance door had swollen too and scraped the frame as it was opened and closed. The noise of this may disturb other tenants? Other than this, I would say the stay was fine, the apartment well equipped and comfortable. We would stay with you again without question, but probably not this particular apartment given the cleaning. I am asthmatic and dust is one of my lesser triggers so a clean and dust free environment is something I would be looking for, particularly around a bed area. We brought along our Dyson personal air purifyer for the very purpose of extracting dust from the atmosphere whilst we slept. I have photo evidence of the dust I spoke of if you are interested to do something about it for your future clients. Thank you very much for your feedback, it is very important to us that all of our guests have an enjoyable stay. Please rest assured that all the cleaning issues you have highlighted have been addressed, if there is any concerns at all during your holiday please feel free to give us a call on 01736 630015 (option 2) for us to assist you. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner Reviewed by KennethOct 2021 "Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday." This is such a lovely apartment, perfectly positioned to make the most of some of the most beautiful beaches in the south west. We reccommend swimming in the sea at carbis bay, it is cold but so worth it. Its been a magical week for us - who would have thought we would be wearing sandals and shorts in October. Emma And Matt, CotswoldsOct 2021 "Fantastic weather and walking." The little beach cafe at Porthgwarra is well worth a visit. Gwithian is brillliant for body boarding and viewing the seal pups at Godrevy is always a treat.

The apartment is beautifully presented and comfortable and we were very happy to have sky tv, when the wind and rain drove us indoors. Carbis Bay is a great place to stay. We recommend The Gannet pub for its food and the Sands restaurant for Sunday lunch. The walk to St Ives is lovely, but its great to catch the train too.

The location is excellent with a short walk to the train station and within 5 minutes you’re at St Ives. The Beach at Carbis Bay is beautiful and luck was on our side as we had glorious weather all week. The apartment has everything you will ever need and was extremely clean and well looked after. Beach Haven ticks all the boxes - the children loved the outside grass area; my husband loved the SKY TV with all the channels and I loved the fact that I come home with hardly any washing! The Housekeeper (Kim) was wonderful and responded instantly to any queries. I can’t thank her enough as she even posted a few items to our home address that had been left by the children. I can highly recommend Beach Haven apartment and you will not be disappointed. This is an amazing place to stay. See you soon!
