    There is everything you need for a self catering holiday. This was our second stay in two months at the Lapis Apartment. We would highly recommend this apartment and look forward to our next visit in 2024.

    Great to be able to sit on the terrace looking at and listening to the sea. One thing that you could mention is the unsuitability for people with walking difficulty as the paths and roads are quite steep. Other than that, first class! Thank you.

    The view, short distance to the beach, rug space for the babies to play, the comfy beds, the little extras made it such a wonderful holiday. The only improvements would be warmer duvets in the twin room and blankets in the living room/to be used whilst sitting outside. Everything else was perfect. Thank you so much for having us!

    Thank you for your helpful comments. We will be making available, single fleece throws which can be used when sitting outside and for warmth when single duvets are not warm enough. Property Owner

  • "Great property, perfect location."

    Kitchen and living room perfect. Duvets of Tog 4.5 for April not warm enough in the twin bedrooms and no throws available. Master bedroom was good - tog 10.5. The water temperature in both the showers was too cool . The water from the hot tap in the bathrooms was good but that temperature could not be reached in the shower. It would have been nice to have a throw or blanket in the lounge area. The pedestrian gate is far too heavy on the hinge. My elderly mother can make it up the hill but not hold the gate open and I imagine it is useless if using a pushchair. I am not complaining about the property- I would love to stay again. I am making the owners and letting agents aware of its jiggles and shortcomings

    Thank you very much for taking the time to leave Feedback following your recent holiday at Lapis and thank you also for your observations, these are very much appreciated, and we will pass these on for consideration.

  • "Lovely apartment, very comfortable and everything we needed for our holiday."

    It was great to have the table and chairs on the outside deck area and even in the first week of October the weather was good and we were able to sit outside to enjoy the fabulous view plus watch the seals in the bay. A couple of small things we’d like to mention - the hot water is very hot especially in the shower so maybe the temperature could be turned down a little to avoid someone being scolded. Also when we arrived the decorative edge under the shower door in the main shower room was lying flat on the floor, my husband managed to push it back into the correct position but feel this should be mentioned so it can be resolved. We throughly enjoyed our stay at Lapis and would recommend this property to our family and friends.

    We thank you for taking the time to leave us your lovely feedback and comments following your stay at Lapis. We can assure you that we will look into the mentioned bits closely to resolve these for the next guests arriving at Lapis.

  • "This is our third (I think!"

    ) stay using your company but unfortunately our worst. The apartment was not up to standard cleanliness wise and some of the fixtures and fittings were shody at best. The large sofa in the lounge had stains on, the coffee machine still had coffee and a filter in it, the ensuite bathrooms bath plug didn't work clearly showing the bath hadn't been cleaned, the toilet roll holder and the toothbrush holder were hanging off the wall, the double sinks were grubby and the bath panel was dirty along the top. Such a shame as the views are insane but it really put a dampner on our stay.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are saddened to hear that you had a few issues during your stay. These have been taken on board and reported to the necessary departments to try and ensure these things get looked into.

  • "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!

    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.

  • "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.

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.

There is a Good Housekeeping Bond of £100 for this property.
