  • "A comfortable, clean, spacious and very well equipped apartment with goodies to welcome guests."

    Also had good wifi. We enjoyed our stay there and would recommend the apartment. However I think the description needs to qualify the statement of being on the 'ground floor' as there are 19 steps down from the entrance door to the block to apartment 5 and this may present problems for those with limited mobility. A grab rail in the shower would be a good safety measure.

    Thank you very much for your feedback as it is very important to us! We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Kissingmoon and would recommend booking the property to other people. With regards to the steps, this is noted in the access details of the property description on the website, so guests are aware of these prior to making a booking. It states there that access to the property from the car parking area is down 19 internal carpeted steps and a detailed access statement is available on request. We thank you again for you feedback and hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Lovely clean and comfortable apartment."

    In particular bed was very comfortable. Courtyard was nice and private and allowed us to leave doors open for air. Apartment is kitted out with everything you would need in a home and made our stay so comfortable. Very quiet and nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of st Ives which was only 3 minutes away…train station close by very convenient. Not related to the apartment but carbis bay beach is reached by a very steep hill and is not suitable for those with mobility issues. Can drive but car park is expensive although you can drop off. We would definitely return to this apartment.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely Feedback following your recent holiday at Kissingmoon and we are especially pleased to hear you found the bed very comfortable. We do hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Where was the sea view?"

    (I don't count the glimpse from the corner of the car park!)

    Dear Mrs Thorpe, Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. We would like to confirm that the property is listed as seaward facing, we are not aware that it is stated to have sea views, but please don't hesitate to let us know if you have seen this stated elsewhere. We always endeavor to keep the expectation realistic, and we are sorry for the disappointment caused. Kind Regards, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • "We both throughly enjoyed our stay, weather was very kind."

    The apartment was very well equipped and very clean and more likely than not will be returning next year

  • "The apartment is lovely and very well equipped so much so that there was no spare cupboard/shelf to store groceries, a minor point."

    We did struggle with the door lock and there were occasions when it seemed that we wouldn't be able to get back in so maybe worthwhile having it checked out. The arrival details weren't forwarded until the day before we were due to arrive and after I had e'mailed for them and did cause a little confusion; apartment 5, parking spot 6 with the keysafe at the parking spot. There is no keysafe at 6 but as there is at 5.......

  • "The key collection details are inaccurate."

    In the e-mail it states that "space marked No 6 for the apartment." whereas the space is no.5 the same as the appartment no. and that is where the key safe is found. I think the outside sitting area experience could be improved given that it is a kind of an outdoor bunker.Such things as climbing plants,mirrors,painting some of the walls all of which would not cost a lot would make sitting outside an even more pleasant experience.

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.
