    “The location and apartment were absolutely fantastic!”

    This apartment was just a couple of mins walk to the train station to St Ives and 5mins from the beach (downhill....a bit longer uphill!). I honestly don't think it could have been more perfectly located. ...

    This apartment was just a couple of mins walk to the train station to St Ives and 5mins from the beach (downhill....a bit longer uphill!). I honestly don't think it could have been more perfectly located. The bedrooms were great if you had young children as you can leave the doors open to hear them. The balcony opened to a fantastic view of the ocean and lighthouse, that I wasn't expecting and was far bigger than I thought. I loved that this apartment had everything that we needed in terms of things for the kitchen; lots of glasses, cups, plates and cooking utensils, pots and pans. The child cot was very good quality, sturdy and better than our one at home. Some minor suggestions (feel free not to publish) - perhaps move the sofa a bit closer to the TV to give more room in the kitchen area, which could get a bit tight - let people know you have plastic cups and plates for kids - a big plus to not have to bring them All in all we loved this stay. Feel free to edit and use the above feedback.

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 town 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 boutique 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 branchline. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country.
