  • "This was our second stay at Celeste and we will happily be booking again."

    It's a perfect location being so close to the beach, even in October our children love to be in the sea. Everything we needed was in the apartment, it was very clean and the little welcome gifts of milk, biscuits and apple juice were appreciated! The train station nearby is another plus and makes getting to St Ive's really easy. We have recommended this property to family and friends if they ever venture to Cornwall.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted to hear this was your second stay at Celeste and that you would happily book again! We are pleased to hear you found the property to have everything you needed and that you enjoyed the welcome gifts. We hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Lovely apartment with great views, would recommend and stay again."

    Only minor niggles were the main light not working in the twin bedroom and quite a few bulbs generally not working but nothing that detracted from our stay. I appreciate it's not directly related to the property but the lift was not working on the morning we left which was not ideal with multiple trips up and down the stairs with heavy bags

    Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted to hear you would stay again. We will be sure to take a look at the bulbs in the apartment and rectify as required, thank you for bringing this to our attention. We hope you had a lovely holiday, and we hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

    The lift was not working the first weekend, but was fixed on the Monday, so even better. Beautiful garden with lovely seating and viewing areas were also a lovely surprise. Definitely want to come back and stay here again, thank you

  • "We really loved our stay in Celeste, lovely apartment and we loved the location, amazing views and we would definitely return."

    Only negatives would be we couldn't get the main oven (bottom one) to work, and couldn't find the manual. Second twin room, light bulb broken, not really an issue.

  • "The apartment is in a lovely location and within walking distance to the St Ives habour area, with a nice path through the woods and a bridge over the railway line or you could easily take the train."

    The apartment is well equipped with good crockery, cookware and utensils. There is a washing machine, dishwasher, clothes drying racks, iron, ironing board and boards games, reading books etc. The only downside for me was that the unit has small windows that don't open much so sea views can be hampered. We all had to congregate or share the two small windows to get a view. The views would be amazing if the windows could open more or differently. Check in and out is self service and the instructions via email are clear. Could not get the Sky TV channels to work so it would be good if there were instructions for key items put up in the apartment e.g. the geyser was switched off when we got in, so we had to figure this out. The lift to the unit is really helpful and convenient to get through luggage and groceries. Welcome gifts of biscuits, chocolates and juice was a lovely gesture by the host.

    Thank you for your lovely, kind feedback. We are so pleased to hear that you found Celeste to be well equipped, in a great location and that you enjoyed the welcome pack. We are sorry to hear that you struggled with the Sky TV, please note there is a Quick Start Guide in the property to help with things like this during your stay but if this is still an issue, please call us and one of the local team will be able to assist straight away. Thank you again for your comments and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Celeste."

    The apartment was very comfortable and well appointed. We liked the little touches of milk, biscuits and chocolate buttons!! Once we'd worked out why the heating wasn't working - timing on controls all wrong - we were warm and cosy! We were missing non slip mats for the showers, they were sorted for us Several people had commented in the guest book that they would have expected a bigger bed in the master bedroom and we would agree with that.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave Feedback and comments following your recent holiday at Celeste and we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the little treats left for you. Thank you for letting us know about the issue with the heating settings during your stay and I am pleased to advise the Housekeeper has now re-set these. Further we are happy to inform that the owner of Celeste has taken your feedback with regards to the non slip mats onboard and purchased two non slip mats which can now be used in the bathtub or in the showers of the property if you whish. We do hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

    First time visiting Cornwall at this time of year and it didn’t disappoint. My young girls loved the view of Carbis Bay from the apartment and also their shared bedroom. The apartment was perfect for our needs, extremely clean and with all the extras you need with little ones - ironing board, Hoover, buckets & spades even a hair dryer! It’s the perfect distance to the lovely beach (great exercise too up and down the steep hill!) and easy driving distance to other towns and attractions. We will definitely recommend staying in Celeste to our friends & family and will definitely be making a return visit! Thank you so much

  • "Celeste is a really comfortable property with great views over Carbis bay beach and out towards St Ives and in the other direction Godfrey Lighthouse."

    The property was extremely well maintained and spotlessly clean and well equipped. It's so nice to fine owners taking a pride in the standard of the accommodation provided. We are so used to a King sized bed however, that it would have been perfect to have had a larger bed in the master bed room, but that is a very minor issue. The on site parking and closeness to the rail station (less than 5 mins walk) where trains run about twice an hour to and from St Ives is a definite advantage. You can also travel to St Erth where you can take a connecting train to Penzance if you don't want to drive. We would have no difficulty in recommending the property to a party of 4 (plus infant) and would certainly hope to return in the future.

  • "Excellent property in a wonderful location."

    Three points of feedback - The double bed is too small and the single beds have hard mattresses The shower tray filled with water as the drain outlet was bunged up. We bought some drain cleaner that seemed to sort out this issue but would have thought the cleaner would have been aware of this issue. Finally, some of the light bulbs weren’t working in the kitchen.

    Thank you for your feedback. We agree, Celeste is an excellent property in a wonderful location. We apologise for the lightbulbs not working, these should have been checked before your arrival. We will pass your comments about the beds to the owners. Kind Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Great little property, clean and with a great view over the Atlantic, occasionally you will even see the train go past (but not hear - so it’s never intrusive) ."

    Car park and the garden area are an added bonus. Only issues we had were , firstly when we arrived there were no keys to the flat available, luckily this was rapidly resolved. Secondly both showers were partially blocked resulting in a pool forming with every use. Finally the batteries in all the remotes including the electric gates need replacing. Other than that a great base to explore Cornwall with St Ives only a 3 minute train ride away.

    Dear Kuldip, thank you for taking the time to leave Feedback and comments following your stay at Celeste and we do hope you enjoyed your stay.

  • "Apartment in fabulous location."

    But some big drawbacks - the bed is far too small in main bedroom. This has been the subject of lots of feedback in the visitor book so can only conclude that the owner just doesn’t care about guest comfort. Also, the pillows are dreadful so overall does not make for a good nights sleep which is just not OK. Also, on arrival the security gates wouldn’t open and this is a major nuisance when people have driven 7+ hours to get there. This affected other holidaymakers and need to be rectified.

    Dear Mrs Jordan, Firstly we would like to take the opportunity to thank you for submitting your feedback. We will pass on the points you have raised about the bed and the pillows to the owner. In regard to the feedback about the security gates, our property team will look into this when they are passing as it could be the battery needs replacing in the remote. We hope to invite you back in the future, Kind Regards, Owner Relations, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • "Absolutely loved our holiday."

    The apartment was spotless clean, beautifully presented and cannot find a single thing to complain about. The parking was an added bonus, no worries about losing our spot if we went out in the car. The garden was beautiful and lovely to sit out in the evening, we were very lucky to get great weather. The view from our window was wonderful, looking over the beach with a coffee in the morning. Only slight snag was it's very steep getting back from the beach, but the heat didn't help it was very hot ! Train into St Ives was great and for £1 each way a bargain, although we walked a couple of times and even though quite hilly in places was worth it for the views. Thank you for the attention to detail which made our staycation 5 stars hopefully be back soon.

    We enjoyed just looking out of the window and watching the seals. The apartment was spotless, the bathrooms are well equipped and the bed was comfy even though we would have preferred a king size and there is plenty of room to accommodate a larger bed. The location is excellent, so peaceful and quiet yet easy enough to visit St Ives either by train or by taking a pleasant walk. Loved the cream tea on arrival, many thanks."

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.
