    Super clean and nicely decorated. Kitchen was easy to cook in and everything was easy to find.

  • "Had a great time staying here."

    Everything you would need in an accommodation was available. Clean rooms, entertainment and games. Beds are really comfy. Short walk to the beach and train station. Stayed in Carbis Bay before a few times and this accommodation tops them all.

    Dear Mr Roberts, Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are so pleased you had a great holiday! We hope to welcome you back again in the near future. Kindest Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "The apartment and the view was lovely the only thing that let it down slightly ..."

    The apartment and the view was lovely the only thing that let it down slightly was the steep hill down to the local beach with the lack of parking at the beach Value for money at this time of yr but maybe not for the summer months as car use will be essential and local amenities at a distance

  • "The apartment exceeded our expectations."

    The view from its location was stunning and ideally placed for lovely scenic walks. It was our first time this far west into Cornwall, and we would definitely come again.

  • "The apartment was way too hot!"

    ! The first two nights were unbearable. I raised this with the management company and their answer was not satisfactory and I came to my own conclusion to turn the heating off altogether. The instructions in the welcome guide did not make sense and the management company could not explain to me how the heating worked. I would like to make a complaint about this as I hardly slept the first night due to the heat. Secondly, it was noted that there was Sky TV available at the property. We were disappointed as was expecting this to include Sky sports. We have stayed at one of your other properties which listed Sky and it did include the sports channel. Other than that, it was a very comfortable apartment, but the heating really needs to be sorted out.

    Dear Mrs Sainsbury, We appreciate you taking the time to submit your feedback. Firstly, we are sorry to hear that you found the apartment too hot; we have not found this to have been a complaint before and we can only apologise that you felt we didn't help. In regard to the Sky TV, we do specify on the listing if the property has movies and sports; Bright Wings does have movies as shown in the listing, along with on demand/streaming channels. Please be assured, we will review the heating settings, and adjust accordingly. We hope to welcome you back in the near future. Kind Regards, Owner Relations, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • "We have had a lovely week in this very comfortable apartment which has such a beautiful view."

    Throughout all furnishings and equipment are of a high standard, well organised and exceptionally clean, all has been carefully thought through. The beds are so comfy! Just one comment - the second bedroom is short of storage space and a chest of drawers in place of the chair would be really helpful, as would a bedside table with lamp next to the bed nearest the door. We did try this and it does enhance the room. We walked into St Ives and used the train several times, so easy and such helpful staff. The walk down to the beach (and back) is challenging but so worth it! Thank you Bright Wings, we would love to stay again.

    Dear Lorraine, Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback for your recent stay at Bright Wings. Its great to hear you had a lovely week, and you slept well by the sounds of it. We will pass on your comments about the second bedroom to the owners. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Kind regards, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • "We normally stay either in St Ives or Gwithian and was 1st time in Carbis Bay."

    Not very keen on steep walk to and from beach so largely went into St Ives or drove to Godrevy/Gwithian. We booked latish because of cancellation of trip to South Africa and felt lucky to find this apartment which was new onto your books. Wasn't able to see any pictures on website and would have been useful to know that balcony is quite small in comparison to others and sits back into building which restricts view a bit. Given our circumstances we would still have booked but would have been nice to know. Apartment was very good and well equipped. Would have preferred higher / dining seating/outdoor furniture on balcony like most of the other apartments. We were there for 3 weeks and would have appreciated a planned weekly clean / linen change. We did ring and get a change after 12 days but this should have been pre organised. Overall a good stay and service from the company. Thank you

    Dear Ian Thank you for your Feedback following your recent stay at Bright Wings and I’m so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. I’m pleased to advise there is now a large selection of photos of the property on our website and it also has a lovely new dining table. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back to the area again in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

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.
