  • "We really enjoyed our week at Genoa."

    The view I never get tired of looking at. It's a lovely apartment, and a great asset that we can bring along our little dog too, so she can enjoy the holiday break we have. Although we live in Cornwall ourselves, mid county, we love coming to visit Carbis Bay, and staying there. We had a couple of small issues, such as the bathroom window wouldn't open, and the top bedroom window wouldn't close, so we reported it straight away to the office for them to look at once our week had ended. But it wouldn't stop me from staying at this lovely apartment again. Thank you.

    Dear Mrs Heginbotham, Thank you for submitting your feedback and may I say it was lovely to meet you during your stay when you came in the report the concerns you had about the windows following the strong winds that Storm Arwen brought; we hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay. As you requested that you didn't wish for us to get someone out to the property during your stay, we can confirm that one of our team have now visit the property to action the points you raised. We hope to invite you back in the near future. Kind Regards, Owner Relations, Carbis Bay Holidays. Property Owner

    We were an adult family and everyone had their own space. The underfloor heating in the bathrooms and the Kitchen was wonderful. We stayed during Feb which was cold but the apartment was wonderful. The view was lovely, we also had our puppy with us so the short walk to the beach was great. We would 100% return. "

  • ""We stayed at Genoa and were delighted with the five star accommodation and look forward to visiting again soon."

    On to places to eat. We could thoroughly recommend The Firehouse in Fore Street, St Ives and Cafe Pasta on the harbourside. Two places that did wonderful full english breakfasts were On Shore and The Ocean Grill on the harbourside. I loved my coffee at Costa in Tesco (Carbis Bay) and the view from there must be the nicest of any Costa in the country. If anyone wants to experience a wonderful pasty i would say Rowes in Penzance or Helston are just gorgeous. Places we really enjoyed were the views from Cape Cornwall and Lamorna Cove, Mullion Cove and the Minnack Theatre." A. Rosser

  • ""We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Genoa."

    The standard of furnishings and the cleanliness was second to none. All the little extras you provide made this a perfect holiday apartment. The views from various rooms were amazing. We could not fault anything and hope to come back again soon. We enjoyed a lovely seafood meal at the Mermaid on the last night and put on a few pounds sampling the Cornish pasties and cream teas. Afternoon tea at the Carbis Bay Hotel was a real treat. Carbis Bay beach was lovely and we spent a lot of time in St. Ives just exploring. A visit to Mousehole was also a highlight, absolutely beautiful. Can't wait to come back." C. Rothwell

  • ""Having been visiting St Ives for 50+ years I have to say that this was the nicest accommodation I have experienced."

    I have stayed at a number of popular hotels in St Ives but this was by far a better experience. The whole process from start to finish was straight forward and uncomplicated, many times over the years I have experienced less than satisfactory accommodation and service, this was not the case with Genoa our expectations were exceeded from the minute we met your representative, you seem to have this process spot on. We like the coffee shop in St Ives ‘The Hub’ for snacks and coffee, also the fish bar next door did amazing fish and chips…we always make a trip to the Tinners Arms at Zennor for lunch and that didn’t disappoint. We also had dinner a couple of times at The Badger Inn in Lelant, which had excellent food and service. We would definitely look to book Genoa again for future trips to Carbis Bay…hopefully not in the too distant future!" H. & D. Broomhead

    TestimonialMay 2015

  • ""Everything about the holiday at Genoa was exceptional."

    The standard of the accommodation and cleanliness was excellent, the greet/handover was efficient and the holiday more than met our expectations. What we particularly liked was the extra’s i.e. the cream tea. the pint of milk etc. We visited the Seal & Otter Sanctuary and Lappa Valley Steam Railway with our two year old granddaughter and although a little expensive for adults under 5’s are free and she loved every minute at both these venues. The Wyevale Garden Centre is an excellent coffee stop and we ate out twice at the La Casita, the food and service here was excellent and they were very accommodating to our granddaughter.The Eden Project is well worth a visit although quite expensivem, we used our Tesco Clubcard vouchers and for four adults (one of which was a concession i.e. over 60) it only cost £28 – good tip for prospective visitors."

  • ""Everything about our stay at Genoa was absolutely brilliant."

    The accommodation and services were second to none, and the property was lovely and clean when we arrived. February was a lovely time to visit Carbis Bay, a time when many people probably wouldn't even consider visiting. The walk from Carbis Bay to St Ives is well worth taking, with some lovely views along the way. We can certainly recommend dining at the Porthminster Cafe' on Porthminster Beach. It is very popular, so booking is recommended. Also the Sea Food Cafe in Fore Street is well worth a visit, again booking is recommended. The Carbis Bay Hotel restaurant is also well worth a visit."

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.
