  • "It would have been nice if the faults we found ie no shelf for drink in the fridge door."

    Dirty back yard squeaky fridge door. Dirty cutlery chipped cups and plates. Dusty head board in the main bedroom . If these had been resolved before our stay it would have been amazing. Easy to fix faults that should never have happened. The office did sort what they could which helped. If these things were fixed it would have been 5 stars all the way.

    Thank you very much for your constructive comments, we have informed the housekeeping team of the issues you found and we are pleased that we were manage to fix the issues you encountered promptly. We hope to welcome you back to the property again soon. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "I could not fault this property at all the location is brilliant for both Carbis Bay and St Ives."

    The property is spotless and the additional seating outside (which is not pictured) is a real sun trap and really added additional value on a warm day. It really was a home from home and I would definitely recommend.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed the location and property. We hope to welcome you back soon! Kind Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Overall a beautiful apartment with high quality fixtures and fittings in an ideal location."

    The welcome pack was a nice touch. However, there were a number of issues we need to bring to your attention: The twin beds were not pushed together into a double as requested when booking. There was no Nintendo Wii games console, controllers etc as stated in the accommodation details. The washing machine was very dirty with gunk and mould. We had to clean the drawer and door seal then run a hot wash before we felt able to use it; not something you want to spend time doing on holiday! It may be beneficial to put a notice on or near the machine requesting that the drawer and door be left open after use to allow it to dry out. Also for the machine to be regularly checked and cleaned. It was stated that a hand towel, bath towel and bath sheet would be provided for each guest but there was only a hand towel and bath sheet. There were complimentary toiletries for three guests rather than four. The bottom of the blinds in the main bedroom were dirty/mouldy and one of the plastic tabs was broken. The wire racks on the barbecue were rusty. We have been staying in self catering accommodation in Cornwall, and throughout the UK, for many years. This was our first time with Carbis Bay Holidays and we were disappointed that we found it necessary to have to bring these issues to your attention.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are saddened to hear that you didn’t find the property up to standard, we apologise. The website has also been updated to reflect the removal of the Wii console. All of your feedback has been taken on board, reported to the necessary departments to ensure these things do not occur again and the housekeeper has sent her apologies regarding the bed make up. However, the team are also always available to help deal with any issues during your stay on 01736 630015 option 2 and would do what we can to resolve them as soon as possible. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kinds Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Accomodation and facilities second to none will definitely book moonsail again."

    Only negative thing we would say - getting in accomodation at 4pm and having to leave at 9am should be reviewed as covid restrictions have now finished. We travel from sheffield 6 hour journey - would be much better to get in for 2pm and leave at 10am particularly if a short break. Thankyou.

    Dear Mrs Dobson, thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. We are so pleased to hear you would definitely book again. We are currently reviewing our check in and out times and hope to ensure a later check out for guests. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Kindest Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team.

  • "We had a amazing week at Moonsail considering it was January we were very lucky with the weather daily walks on Carbis bay beach."

    Several walks into St Ives along the coastal route. Felt fitter after the week very steep hill on the return walk but well worth it. Moonsail was a beautiful place to stop in very comfortable, we loved the jacuzzi bath. Lovely welcome gifts,it felt like home it had everything you could possibly need including a fan which my daughter uses every night. Would definitely come back.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon.Kind Regards - The Carbis Bay Holidays team. Property Owner

  • "The apartment was lovely!"

    Clean and with everything we needed. We were a little confused by the instructions about where to leave the bed sheets as we couldn’t find the red laundry bags anywhere or the padded envelope for the keys so we just did what we thought was best.

  • "Another fabulous holiday at Carbis bay."

    We have stayed in a number of properties over the last 7/8 years and Moonsail was one of our favourites. It was very well equipped with everything you could need and more. A short walk down to the beach but a bit steep on the way back up but to be expected in Carbis bay. Sadly this may be our last break in Carbis bay as the prices have increased about 2 1/2 times for next year on this years price which does not seem justified as still only getting the same property.

    Dear Mrs Cooper, We are delighted to hear that you hand a wonderful stay. Its lovely to hear that you may have found a new favorite. There has been a huge demand for stay-cations this year and for 2022, which has increased prices in line with other letting agencies throughout the country. Prices also vary in line with the way school holiday weeks fall, and are also subject to annual price reviews. We would like to reassure you that the prices for 2022 are all monitored very closely and priced with seasonal variance and demand to establish the right balance. Kind Regards, Owner Relations Team, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • ".A Wonderful, large and overall comfortable property. Would like to point out a few minor issues"

    . The kitchen tap was dripping from the minute we arrived. Thus should have been reported as I'm sure the cleaners would have noticed. The kitchen bin was an issue, with the lid closing. The plastic catch was bent and eventually snapped, through wear and tear. Poor quality bin, compared to all the other appliances and equipment. The lighting to the large bathroom mirrors could be improved to allow shaving and applying makeup. The shower screen wasn't particularly clean upon arrival nor was some cutlery. ( A fork was filthiest). Given the 8 hour cleaning window of 9am until 5pm this should be 100% spotless). We haven't had any previous issues with our carbis bay holidays in the past. Whilst the above points are negative, the overall experience was still very good. Kind regards Sean

  • ""We enjoyed our stay at 'Moonsail' very comfortable and warm, lovely location and views."

    We followed one of the recommended walks in the 'Moonsail' information pack and took the coastal footpath to Lelant. Had lunch at the Badger pub. Then caught the train back to St.Ives to finish the day off. Another day we drove to Truro one of our favourite Cornish towns and got the River Fal to Trellisik? and spent an afternoon in the gardens. On Friday the only rainy day we visited the Eden project. Well worth giving a day to. We would be happy to stay at 'Moonsail' again and enjoyed our stay. There is parking for a large car and the supermarket is also very handy for supplies." G. WIlliams

  • ""We enjoyed our trip to the Minnack Theatre."

    We were surprised we were allowed to take our dog into the Theatre as well, which was fabulous. We also drove to Lizard Point and had a pleasant stroll down to the old lifeboat station before enjoying a proper Cornish Pasty for lunch. During our previous stays we have also visited Trebah Gardens, St Michael's Mount, Sennen Cove and Mousehole Penzance is always a good trip to wonder around the shops and while away a few hours. Although we live in Cornwall, we just love St Ives and its many beaches. I have some fantastic scenic photographs. We enjoy the train ride into St Ives, even the dog! Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming. The Sheaf of Wheat and the Sloop Inn are our favourite dining experiences." N. & M. Wood

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.
