  • "Excellent apartment with all amenities."

    In lovely position with great views from garden. Lots of steps and very steep hill so not ideal for disabled or anyone with walking difficulties. Vacating by 10.00am a little early especially as cannot get in till 16.00. Otherwise great.

    Thank you for your review. We’re so glad you liked the apartment and enjoyed your stay. There is a steep driveway to the apartment and some further steps, however, this has been highlighted as part of the description. Housekeeping work hard during the changeover to ensure all safety checks are carried out and the apartment is clean and tidy for guests arrival. Property Owner

  • "We loved this property ."

    We walked into an immaculate, comfortable , well equipped , beautiful holiday home . It had everything we could possibly need. The views are amazing . Comfortable beds . The guide to everything in the property and surrounding areas was so helpful. 4 minute walk down to the sandy beach below . The driveway down to the property is very steep but we quickly got used to driving up and down it . The surrounding gardens are kept beautifully and give it a tropical feel. We will definitely be returning next year .

    Thank you for taking the time to leave such lovely feedback, which is very much appreciated. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we would love to welcome you back again in the future. Sending our best wishes. Property Owner

  • "A really lovely spot and the accommodation was immaculate."

    Bed very comfy, bathroom and shower fab. The lounge area is very cosy and the small patio with furniture great. Views awesome. It is a fabulous holiday home with all needs catered for within the property. The hill is quite daunting for a nervous or inexperienced driver, and this should be made clear as in the current description the 'very steep hill' sounds like a comment about walking up/down it.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay. We will of course take your comments regarding the steep hill into consideration. With best wishes. Property Owner

  • "Lovely little place, I hurt my ankle slipping on wet floors on arrival n hurt my ankle so please be careful on way in as floors were soaking wet."

    Rear gardens and views are beautiful just a little tlc needed in places ie entrances needed a sweep n weeds but nothing major n damp in bedrooms behind beds so move your luggage as ours got mouldy. Lovely welcome pack on arrival thankyou for that I actually went to source out the tea. Everything provided iron was a god send as I'd forgotten mine. Great little trek down to the local beach n they're beautiful. Nice walk down into St ives if you follow the train tracks down passing all the beautiful building and views, takes about half an hour on foot. Trains were a little noisey at times at bottom of property but got use to that after few days. Chilly on a night guys so take something warm had to pop heating on. I'd suggest bigger towels n maybe a few extra as drying them was hard n the drying area was shaded so had to buy 4 from asda . Bedding lovely and comfy. Did have a lovely stay and visited all the lovely areas the beaches are amazing. Local tescos and pharmacy few mins away so that was good. Very very steep road to the property and quite tight to get to if uve a bigger car so be careful driving down. Overall a lovely little place , few glitches but didn't effect out stay. Would highly recommend

    Thank you for your review. Carbis Bay is a beautiful place to stay, with all the amenities you need within walking distance from Millies. For info, there are communal clothes dryers located in the garden and also a towel heater in the bathroom. We’re pleased you enjoyed your stay as do our very best to make it as welcoming as possible for all of our guests. The apartment underwent a full refurbishment in May therefore will look into the other issues raised. Property Owner

  • "Loved our stay and apartment is gorgeous, with great views."

    Lovely and quiet. Good amount of utensils, pots etc in kitchen. It was chilli one evening so we put the heater on and it heated the room up very quick, turned of and room stayed warm for rest of evening. The only criticism and a small one is the sheets on the bed, they are too small, you need deep fitted sheets, the sheets kept pinging off the corners two or three times in a night. Loved our stay and would highly recommend this property.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback. We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay and that the apartment met your expectations. We will certainly contact our housekeeper to ask if she can source deeper sheets. Many thanks again. Property Owner

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.
