  • "One of the most comfortable and incredible properties I've ever stayed in."

    Listed exactly as seen, super comfortable beds, nice & clean decor (but not so clean you don't feel you can relax!) The view is to die for - a joy to wake up to and changes all the time with the different weathers and boats going by - lovely view to the left of St Ives and to the right of Godrevy lighthouse. Good well stocked kitchen with all implements and a dishwasher. Minutes to Carbis bay station with regular trains to St Ives or St Erth, previous visits to St Ives have felt more stressful due to the lack of parking so this was a brilliant location. It was a complete joy to stay here and hopefully we will be back very soon.

  • "Lovely property with great views of the sea, albeit, over the roofs of other apartments."

    The only reason I marked it down was that the bi fold doors and balcony screen were filthy which meant you couldn’t appreciate the view. I did clean them and it made a big difference, maybe they need a word with the cleaners. One other niggly thing there were no cleaning cloths, not a big deal as we bought some in the supermarket, but attention to detail gets you 5 stars Location is great , easy walk into St Ives or catch the train for £1. The hill up from the bay is very steep so if you have mobility issues it would be a problem

  • "Good apartment only negative was the TV only very basic free view channels this not acceptable in 2024"

  • "The flat was clean and tidy with everything you need for a comfortable stay."

    Although ground floor from carpark (just 2 internal steps in hallway) you are 3rd floor in the building and therefore have an fantastic uninterrupted view from St Ives Island right over to Godrevy Lighthouse. The most comfortable sofa and chairs ever made it a treat and on that alone I would return!

    We have stayed in a lot of property but the sofas are the best we have used and very comfortable, everything being on one level was a big bonus to. Parking off road was well laid out with good space. Thank you once again for another great week's holiday we will be back again soon. Brian

    Could have sat on the couch all week watching the sea, the boats, the birds, the bats, the fireworks! But, of course, we were off exploring - the train was fabulously handy - the walk to the beach was short and good exercise coming back! We loved the apartment. It was clean, comfortable and contemporary. Thank you, thank you! xx

    Can see the sunrise from the balcony about 6.30 am. Place is very warm. Windows in main bedroom and living room needed to be permanantly open. Loved the washing machine and dryer - no washing for me when I get home. Enjoy!

  • "We were bowled over with the view."

    Our second time staying in Carbis Bay and we once again find a near perfect holiday home that we can't revisit because it will no longer be dog friendly. So we leave Kernow's Dream wishing all the future visitors as lovely a holiday as we have had. Thank you for a small taste of paradise.

    Lovely view. Master bedroom very hot and no dressing table, but thats the only negative. Weather fantastic, train to St Ives very handy. Had lovely meals at the Gannet and Firehouse. Bit busy for our liking in St Ives, hopefully quieter in September when we visit again.

    Cream tea on arrival, which was a lovely welcome, I would highly recommend ‘Kernows Dreams’ to family and friends. Carbis Bay Holidays were very thorough from start to finish, with plenty of information given. Hayley the housekeeper was lovely, nothing was too much trouble. Looking forward to booking again for next year.’"

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.

There is a Good Housekeeping Bond of £100 for this property.
Access to the apartment level (except for 2 steps) and along entrance hallway from car park.

Unfortunately, the gravel path, down the side of the apartments, to the communal gardens has been highlighted as not suitable for frequent use. The owners are looking at addressing this in the long term, but in the meantime they have installed 'no pedestrian access' sign to say that guests will be unable to use the path to access the communal gardens and therefore the communal gardens will be inaccessible via the path for the duration of your stay. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
