  • "Beautifully presented, clean, spacious, great facilities and a marvellous view!"

    The main bed is of great quality and is comfy (firm mattress). The walk down to the beach is easy distance … but what goes down must come up…! I’d definitely recommend this property and would definitely stay there again! Thank you so much! (Becks Fish & Chips are awesome, as is Beer & Bird and Talay Thai!)

  • "The property is clean, spacious and in a fantastic location."

    The utilities are all very high standard and the owners have provided everything you could want for a stay. The only problem we had was the King size bed is so noisy, every turn or roll over creates noise which affected mine and my partners sleep. I would have given it 5 stars if the bed was good.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback and comments following your stay at Bosbrea. We are very pleased to hear you have found the property clean and well equipped. With regards to the bed noise we thank you for bringing this to our attention as we have not had feedback mentioning this before. We can assure you that we will look into this to make sure this won't be a problem for guest staying at Bosbrea in the future. We hope to get the opportunity to welcome you back in the future!

  • "Our Stay at Bosbrea was fantastic, the view from the balcony was beautiful."

    The apartment was well equipped with everything you could need. The gifts on arrival were a lovely touch. Carbis Bay is a lovely, quiet place,and is a short (steep) walk to the beach and shops. There is a bus stop right outside the apartment to take you to St Ives. It would of been nice to be able to park our car at the apartment, as we arrived too early to check in and our space was available. We had driven for 7 hours. We awaited a phone call to see if we could park up, unfortunately nobody got back to us. We did however park up on tesco, so this wasn't really an issue in the end. We did have a fantastic stay. Thank you Sykes for another unforgettable holiday.

  • "This was a brilliant property."

    The location was excellent for a number of reasons including being able to walk to several beaches along quiet footpaths and into St Ives. The facilities in the kitchen area were great and the owners summary instructions on how to use them and the heating - were really helpful. The bender, baking equipment etc meant I could make soup, cakes etc. The view from the property was stunning and it was clean, well maintained and nicely furnished. I had a very enjoyable two week break and would definitely visit again.

    We thought the open plan apartment together with bedrooms and bathroom were all excellent as were fixtures and fittings. Apartment has onsite parking and is conveniently located for Carbis Bay rail station although quite a steep walk back from the station.

    It is the first time we have stayed in that part of Cornwall and enjoyed our vist. The accommodation was excellent, everything we had hoped for. We enjoyed reading some of the books in the book case; we’d brought some of our own but read yours instead and enjoyed them. We ate at the Cornish Arms just down the road three times: good food at a good price and very convenient. We also ate at the Seafood Cafe in St Ives and Waves in Penzance. We enjoyed a visit to the Eden Project and St Michaels Mount as well as visiting all the art shops in the neighbouring towns." J. & D. Nash

About the location


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.

There is a Good Housekeeping Bond of £100 for this property. Access to Penreen apartments is via a gradual ramp from the driveway. There is a carpeted flight of stairs up to the first floor apartment via 15 steps. Additional road parking close by.
