  • "Crack in en-suite hand basin Clearer labelling for recycling area for ALL Sands apartments."

    Too much waste gets thrown away & not recycled. A good example is food waste. Is this recycleable anywhere? Otherwise all first class as usual

    Thank you for your feedback and for bringing these issues to our attention we will be sure to look into the points raised. Unfortunately, food waste recycling is something that is not yet offered by Cornwall Council. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "The property is beautiful, lovely space and amazing views."

    I would just point that there is now Apple TV unless you have your own log in and I feel that should be made clear as it’s misleading in the information. We did also inform sykes on our return that someone needs to look into the issue of an insect called silver fish. We notice about 10. After some research it says they like damp environments. So hopefully the appropriate measures have been taken. Having said that we would book again.

    Thank you very much for your feedback and for making us aware that guests need to have their own log in to use the Apple TV at Mid Air. We want to apologise if this has caused any inconvenience and can assure you that we will amend the website descriptions going forward. The silver fish issue has been addressed and will be dealt with. It makes us happy to hear you liked the apartment and would book again. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to get the opportunity to welcome you back soon! With Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "There were one or two minor issues that did not affect our stay or deter us from future stays, for example the bedroom door latches were not working properly and they continued to slam loudly and an under cupboard lamp was not working."

    Minor matters, but I feel it would be helpful to report. The most significant issue which caused me some distress, was the Internet provision. A very old Apple router which was at best slow and on the Tuesday of our stay, we had no Internet provision at all for much of the day. I do need the Internet while on holiday because of my charity work and the need to use Zoom efficiently, to that end. If this could be sorted then I would like to book a further holiday at Mid Air next year.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback and comments following your stay at Mid Air. We are saddened to hear that you have had difficulties with the internet and have come across two other minor maintenance issues. We have now been informed that the internet problem was an Openreach issue which has affected the whole of The Sands apartment complex and neighbouring properties and has been fixed the day after it occurred. With regards to the router, I have been advised by the housekeeper that this transfers 40 MB of data, which is average to fast speed. We have reported the door latches and the under cupboard lamp to our Property Management Team who will look into resolving these issues going forward. We want to apologise for any inconvenience caused. We also want to let you know that we are always available to help under the number 01736 630015, option 2 and would do our best to resolve any issues encountered during your say as soon as possible, when approached. We are very pleased to hear that your stay has not been affected by this too much and therefore hope you still had a lovely holiday time. We hope to get the opportunity to welcome you back in the future! With Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Beautiful apartment."

    Have visited many times. We did notice the central heating boiler was very noisy on occasions and as it is outside the bedrooms it did wake us up. Perhaps it needs looking at? No hesitation recommending the apartment though as it is so comfortable.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us your feedback as it is very important to us. We are sorry to hear the boiler was noisy at times. We can assure you that we will look into if this can be resolved going forward. We are very pleased to hear you would not hesitate to recommend staying at Mid Air and hope to get the opportunity to welcome you back soon!

  • "An absolutely magical stay, Mid Air was top class & the view when walking into the property was breathtaking."

    A very high standard was present throughout the spacious apartment and a lovely welcome pack was a really nice touch . Our children both felt really at home there straight away and slept liked logs after a fun packed day on the beautiful, safe Carbis Bay, which is literally a few minutes walk down the bank . Perfectly located to easily catch the train into St Ives, which added an exciting element to our stay . We fell in love with the luxurious Mid Air & also Carbis Bay. We cannot wait to return!

    Thank you for such wonderful feedback, we will be sure to pass this across to the owner and the housekeeper. We hope to welcome you back to the area in the near future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Excellent apartment with views over the bay to st Ives."

    Close to the local station but the hill is quite steep for anyone with walking difficulties. There is a station car park but it can get busy in high season. We took a taxi into St Ives on our last evening (Porthmeor restaurant) and for the 4 of us was less than £10 each way - cheaper than a bus.

    Thank you for your feedback. We hope you had a wonderful holiday. Kind Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "We have stayed many times at mid air."

    Beautiful apartment with lovely views. It’s always spotless and very comfortable. I know there have been a few comments about the sofas and they do loose a lot of feathers but they are comfortable. I do think though if you had mobility issues they would be very hard to get out of! We still love this apartment and will continue to return.

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

  • "Wow, exceeded all expectations, the view and location are fantastic."

    Only very minor criticism would be to 2 very large sofas, not the most comfortable for sitting at and maybe a larger main tv due to the size of the room, but you have to remember you are on holiday. Railway station only 5 minutes away, downhill, but the hill is worthy of noting for the elderly. Apartment very well fitted out with everything that was expected. Would highly recommend.

  • "This is an amazing apartment with AMAZING views,we absolutely loved it and would love to go back again."

    However the sofas are so uncomfortable and impossible for me and my husband to sit on, if there hadn’t been the other chairs we would have had to sit in the dining chairs all week.we are in our seventies though , I am sure youngsters wouldn’t have a problem Also I would have liked to know that the telescope doesn’t work as I didn’t take my binoculars with me as thought It would be better. This is only constructive criticism though just a couple of issues that would make Mid Air perfect for all .

    Dear Mrs Hammond, Thank you for your positive feedback. The views are amazing and we would be delighted to welcome you back again. Kindest Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

The property

Mid Air is an immaculate penthouse apartment overlooking the stunning Carbis Bay along the Cornish coast.

Live the highlife from Mid Air, boasting a superb, elevated position with unbeatable far-reaching sea views and a contemporary interior, making this a magnificent escape for families or two couples.

Once inside, a welcoming hallway leads you into the open plan living space, inviting friends and family to spend the happiest of their holiday days.

Boasting Ralph Lauren fabrics, French antique furniture and a fresh white backdrop against the captivating blue sea views, this is a magnificent spot to unwind each evening.

Vast, over-sized sofas are a welcome indulgence after a long day rambling the coast, or enjoy some quiet time while the rest of the group hits the beach.

The kitchen has been thoughtfully kitted out with all you could need for home-cooking, and the balcony provides an idyllic setting for alfresco dining, backed by the marvellous view across the waters of the Cornish coast.

Retire to the haven of the bedrooms, where quality mattresses are adorned in luxury linens and a bathroom offers a tranquil spot for a good old soak.

From your front door, the beautiful west coast of Cornwall is just waiting to be explored; meander down to Carbis Bay Beach where you can top up your tan on the golden sands, while the little ones safely splash in the crystal clear waters.

Carbis Bay is filled with a wealth of shops, pubs, restaurants and seaside amenities, providing plenty of options when you don’t fancy cooking, while there is also a direct train to the beauty of St Ives.

Get to know your surroundings further by visiting the Tate St Ives, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, as well as a vibrant harbour for fishing, sea safaris and boat trips.

Join the South West Coast Path and marvel at the beautiful landscapes over to rugged cliffs near St Ives, Hellesveor Cliff and Carn Naun Point, whilst the fascinating landmarks of Marazion with St Michael’s Mount and Penzance are worth checking out.

Mid Air is a truly remarkable base to enjoy Cornwall’s beach life, with so much more to explore right on the doorstep.

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 £300 for this property.
