  • "We were awoken by builders working below our bedroom windows who started at 8."

    00 in the morning, very annoying !! Loud banging, this was not mentioned at the time of booking and we would certainly not have gone ahead had we know this !!! At least this should have been stated with a reduction in price !! On previous visits there has been a welcome pack, a small gesture but nevertheless very much appreciated after a long and frustrating journey !! The entertainment system was frustrating to use and not intuitive, very fiddly and not use friendly.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are very sorry to hear you were awoken by the builders, there is a note on the website to advise there are building working taking place adjacent to The Sands apartments for the Azure development and are due to be completed mid 2023. We do apologies this disturbed you during your stay. Despite the issues you experienced during your stay we do hope you had a lovely holiday, and we hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Excellent stay."

    It was the beginning of the heatwave when we arrived so fantastic weather. It would have been nice to have fans available in the bedrooms as it was very hot. But a lovely place very welcoming staff that we met on arrival and when leaving. We had booked for a family wedding. The couple picked a great venue. What a week. Thank you Great apartment.

  • "The property is beautiful and the views are stunning."

    It would have been nice to be informed that there is a building site next door when we booked as we may have chosen somewhere else to stay. We chose to get away for a relaxing week and the building site is very loud right by the windows of the property. Also as beautiful as the property is, for nearly £3000 a week then I'd expect it to perfection. There were a few tiny niggles like food left on the floor from the previous occupier, the light switches in the bedrooms sometimes work, the toilet holder had broke, the tvs are extremely small in the bedrooms. The place is amazing though and the apartment is very secure. Carbis bay beach is really nice.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are very pleased you loved the property and views. There is a notice regarding the building works on the webpage for this property which also comes up upon booking, and we can confirm this was in place prior to receiving your booking with us. If you have any issues during your stay we would like the opportunity to rectify things as quickly as possible, please contact the local office on 01736 630015 option 2, and one of the local team would be more than happy to help. Thank you again for your comments which we will look into, and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kinds Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Great property and we all loved it."

    However, a few observations: - We specially requested 3 double beds and one room was two singles. - The en-suite room would benefit with a set of draws (space available under the TV). - The en-suite shower doors do not close fully. Apart from that, the apartment was brilliant and would definitely return.

    Dear Chris, thank you very much for taking the time to leave feedback and comments following our stay at Horizon. We are happy to hear that you liked the property and will return. We thank you for bringing the en-suite shower door to our attention and can assure you that we will look into this to rectify any problems going forward. However we do not appear to have received correspondence from yourself requesting the beds to be 3 double beds, it may be that the request was within 48 hours of arrival and therefore the housekeeper is unable to facilitate this at such short notice but we will investigate the reason why to ensure this does not happen again. We are looking forward to welcome you back soon! Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

    We appreciate the care you take to furnish the property tastefully and provide all the necessary cooking implements. It couldn't be better done, really home from home. We also appreciate the care you show by providing milk, biscuits, tea, wash liquid, dishwasher satchets,etc, etc, so that the minute we walk in the door there is everything there for starting us off. The comfortable beds, television, balcony, view, location, all play a part in making this appartment a wonderful place to spend a holiday. Thank you very much, Graham Barton & Christine.

    Dear Mr Barton, thank you for your valued comments following your recent holiday at Horizon. These are very much appreciated and we look forward to welcoming you back 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.

Azure development - please note that there are building works taking place adjacent to The Sands apartments for the Azure development. These are due to be completed in the mid 2023
