  • "Lapis is a beautiful apartment, very well equipped, spacious, comfortable and has the most stunning views out over the bay."

    We were very fortunate to enjoy perfect weather throughout our entire stay this year so also made good use of the outside decked area. Special thanks to the cleaning team who ensured that the apartment was immaculately prepared for us. This year was our tenth year of visiting Carbis Bay and of booking through Carbis Bay holidays and we are already looking at availability for next year, we would recommend Lapis as a perfect base for your holiday. The train station is 5 minutes walk and a 4 minute journey into St Ives, also enjoying stunning views along the way or there's the coastal path to follow if you like a lovely walk, and if relaxing on the beach is your thing Carbis beach is perfect for paddling, swimming or paddle boarding, rarely seeing any large waves. If you've never been before you should seriously consider it!

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the property and your stay! Thank you so much again for your comments, we have passed your kind words on to the housekeeper for this property who is very grateful! We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kinds Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Beautiful stunning views of the sea, moved us to tears after first holiday for a few years after shielding during lockdowns, comfortable apartment, luxury furnished and fitted, clean, tidy, lovely welcome pack with milk, juice etc."

    Loved the blue sea theme and the pictures. We were blessed with great weather all week. Loved sitting on the decking looking out to sea, enjoyed some amazing sunrises across the sea. I came home and I have already booked in for next year, would highly recommend, was really worth every penny. Thank you, had the best holiday at Lapis, Carbis Bay.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your wonderful feedback! It makes us very happy to hear that you had a memorable stay and have already booked your next stay. We are looking forward to welcoming you back soon! Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Great apartment with Lapis offering a specious, well equipped in all areas apartment and decorated to a high standard making our holiday very special."

    The view of Carbis Bay with the sea being a focal point is beautiful. The outside decking is very spacious. Access is also good especially with me suffering with multiple sclerosis and after parking the car in the allotted space, is metres to the lift taking you down to literally the front door of the apartment. Highly recommend Lapis and also Carbis Hotel’s restaurants especially the beach club,

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased to hear the high standard made it feel very special and you found the view beautiful. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Best Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Lovely comfortable apartment with everything needed for a week of self catering."

    Beautiful location and fantastic views. The walk in shower controls were broken but the property manager had already been notified and was booking a plumber. Instructions in the folder would have been helpful to access the beach gate. We only found the fob at the end of the holiday. My fault as I hadn't seen it on the dark worktop. I had to email twice for Instructions as I didn't know it was a separate fob. A spare was posted by the property manager on the Monday. So happily resolved.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you had such a lovely stay, all your comments have been taken on board. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Excellent location."

    Brilliant property. Our family loved our stay there. Well looked after and we would thoroughly recommend it for other families with direct access to the beach. Only recommendation is to advertise that the grass outside is not allowed to be played on. The picture suggests otherwise. Our little ones were disappointed. And it would be better to provide more plates and glasses otherwise the disk washer needs to be put on multiple times per day. Not efficient use. Small points but they would not stop us from staying again. Thank you.

    Your apartment is big and fab with great views - on your request we stripped the beds on departure to find the quilt on one single bed stained - bit of a bittersweet moment for us after a great week - on a lighter note the gate @ the bottom of the garden had me puzzled I went down twice but couldn't open the gate but watched other holiday makers use it - bit of a puzzle that - also no padded bag to drop the key back thro letterbox improvised with a unused dish cloth

    Thank you very much for your feedback as it is very important to us! We are pleased to hear you have overall had a wonderful week. We are sorry to hear you have come across a couple of issues and just wanted to let you know that we are always available to help under the number: 01736 630015 - Option 2. We are just in the process of updating the quick start guides to remove the use of the padded envelope to make the process of returning the keys more convenient for guests. We hope to welcome you back in the near future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • ""Having seen the photos of the apartment online with a lounge, dining area, full kitchen, two bedrooms and a sea view, it was just what we were looking for."

    The apartment was exactly as described, super clean, warm and comfortable. There is a path that leads down to the coast road where you can walk the coastal path to St Ives in approx. 20 mins. Carbis Bay is a really lovely area but a 20 min. drive to Penzance and you can explore more coastal paths on that side. Fantastic place, just what we wanted, very pleased and would book again."

The property

Step out onto the decked terrace of this luxury ground floor apartment and you’ll see why its name was inspired by the precious gemstone known for its regal blue, Lapis.

The colour of the sea is not the only thing to take your breath away, the views from Lapis set above Carbis Bay Beach stretch right across to St Ives and out to Godrevy Lighthouse.

Sleeping four its ideal for a small family or couple.

Finished in the highest quality, Karndean Limestone style flooring, the living area benefits from this fabulous Cornish vista.

Open the double French doors from the sitting area or master bedroom and breath in the fresh air, natural light and sound of the ocean.

Relax into one of the finest quality three and two-seater designer sofas, you may even be lucky enough to see seals and dolphins at play in the bay or enjoy the entertainment on offer including a full Sky HD package of Kids and Sport.

Perfectly positioned within the open plan living area for enjoying the beautiful sea views is a dining area, to the rear.

A stylish glass dining table with contemporary leather seating for four is provided.

A contemporary style kitchen finished in high gloss cream with stunning Karndean Slate style flooring is located at the rear of the property.

The master sea view en-suite bedroom has spectacular views across the bay, open up the French doors and enjoy breakfast on the terrace watching the ocean.

Relax on the sumptuous king size bed listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore below.

The second bedroom has two single beds and is located to the rear of the property ensuring a peaceful night’s sleep.

Wine and dine alfresco on the decking area which stretches across the whole of the front of the luxury apartment and accessed from the sitting area and master bedroom.

A Rattan Cube dining set for four is provided.

The beach is just a few sandy steps through the communal garden and from here you can access the coastal path to St Ives.

A nearby scenic railway stops at St ives and connects to the rest of this beautiful county.

Lapis is truly a gem glistening on the Cornish coast, once found you’ll never want to let it go.

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.
