  • "Only problem was parking as my car would not fit in garage and there were no visitor spaces available."

    Dear Mrs Quinn, thank you for taking the time to leave feedback and comments following your stay at North Shore and we are very pleased to see that you have rated the property so high in regards to cleanliness, facilities, accuracy of listing and comfort. With regards to the allocated garage parking for use by guests staying at North Shore, the dimensions for this are noted on the property details on the website so a potential guest is aware of these prior to making a booking, together with some information on the parking at Carbis Bay railway station. We would also recommend Porthrepta Car Park, near to St Anta church, as it is less than ½ a mile away and you are able to book a weekly ticket via the Cornwall Council website. Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "I;ve left a few comments in the Owner's "Fix Me" book at North Shore."

    These include:- 1 Better instructions on the directions to locate the key safe box and the bin store in which the key box resides. 2 Review and update the North Shore Quick Quide book and instructions in relation to - operation of the central heating system - and - leaving day procedure which is unclear on used bedding and towels and conflicting info on return of keys procedure. 3 I visited alone ao only used a few of the rooms and facilities at North Shore but I would note that the property would benefit from a poper mixer shower in the main bathroom rather than the "old fashioned" fussy shower fed from the bath mixer taps. 4 I was aware of the lack of geberalparking at Compass Point from previous visits and the allocated garage parking for North Shore in particular so I left my car at home and travelled by public transport. I think that the really limited parking provision for North Shore and at Compass Point generally needs to be given a greater highlight in the property description of the CBH website and brouchure All in all a great apartment for a single or couple who are prepared to comprimise on immediate access to car parking both within the Compass Point complex and at the adjacent railway station £5 a day car park as it could be a frustrating need to use the Cornwall Council Porthrepta car park or the Saint Anta church car park £4 a day both located some distance away on Porthrepta Road

    Dear Mr Whetter, thank you for taking the time to leave Feedback and comments following your stay at North Shore and we do hope you enjoyed another good stay with us in Carbis Bay. I am sorry to hear you had a problem locating the Key Safe to access the keys for the property. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we will amend the directive to ensure future guests staying at North Shore do not experience any similar issues. We will also check the Quick Start Guide and update this as required and pass on your comments regarding the shower to the property Owners for their consideration. What a good idea to leave your car at home and travel to Cornwall by train, the Compass Point development is in a great location to facilitate this.

  • "We loved our stay in Northshore."

    Great location and perfect spot to explore the area. It was very clean and spacious for us ( three of us - couple and child ). The beds were very comfortable and we had good sleep . The kitchen was fully equipped - handwash liquid wasn’t there but we managed . Living room three seater sofa not comfortable as sinks but didn’t bother us too much . The views from the bedroom and living room are breathtaking. Carbis bay is so beautiful and we love to be back and would definitely stay again in North shore. Thanks

    Thank you so much for your wonderful, positive feedback as it is very important us! We are happy to hear that you had a great stay and are looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at North Shore as a family of 4."

    We found the apartment very clean, comfortable and like a home from home with great facilities. The views from the living room and master bedroom are stunning and the apartment is in a perfect location with a short walk to the beach or a quick train ride into St Ives. We couldn’t fit our car in the garage so used the visitor bay on this occasion. The children were thrilled to find boogie boards and beach toys in the garage too, lovely extra touch. Thank you

  • "Apartment and some crockery not clean."

    Found three long black hairs in bathroom. Sink in en suite completely blocked and shower leaking water on floor. Also below at station workmen started at 0730 making lots of noise. We should have been warned about that. Normally people would get a discount if the is work nearby. Fingers prints all over wardrobe doors. Pizza cutter full of congealed pizza and cheese. Two handfuls of crumbs under toaster upon arrival. So sad! We have been with Carbis bay holidays 4 times now and this times it has been very disappointing re appartement. We certainly won’t book again especially with the prices having gone up by a third. Luckily we booked early and payed the old price. We are pensioners and can’t afford this anymore. Another long term problem with this apartment is the parking. The garage won’t do for any modern car. There are 3 visitor spaces which are always full and the car park at the station mostly full too. Limited parking because of all the works going on there. This apartment needs a proper parking space!!

  • "Well equipped and comfortable apartment."

    Two critical comments :- 1, The basin in the en-suite bathroom needed attention. It drained exceptionally slowly. 2, Parking can be frustrating and should be acknowledged in your listings. The garage is too tight for many modern cars. There are too few visitors spaces and they tend to be occupied for the duration. Payment systems in the alternative, station car park do not always work.

    Dear Mr Little, Thank you for taking the time to get you feedback to us. We will pass on the point you raised about the sink to the housekeeper to look at on changeover. In regard to the parking, we apologise that you found the parking restricted. To avoid disappointment, we do include the measurements on the property listing along with it being included in the Key Collection which you received approximately 1 week before your stay. We hope you thoroughly enjoyed your stay and we hope to invite you back in the near future. Kind Regards, Owner Relations Team, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • "The apartment was not cleaned to a good enough standard, let alone in covid times."

    Biscuit crumbs in the windowsill, leftover food behind the bedroom doors, the placemats in the dining room were disgusting. The lamps didn’t work, several comments about this in the guest book, so we spoke to Caribs Bay holidays to inform them of this and we got replacement bulbs. The owner commented on this, so not sure why he didn’t resolve a simple issue. The shower in the en-suite was tiny. The garage should be advertised that it doesn’t fit a standard car in it, we would have never booked had we known this. The cars in the visitor parking didn’t move the whole week, so we either had to climb out the top of the car when using the garage, or have the additional cost of paying to park the car. We chose Carbis Bay instead of St Ives, as we thought we could park earlier. The sink in en suite was gross. The keys were not left in the lock box at 5pm, so we couldn’t get into the apartment and had to chase this.

    Dear Chris, Thank you for taking the time to leave Feedback following your recent stay at North Shore, this is very much appreciated. I am very sorry to hear the property did not reach our usual standard of cleanliness, I have highlighted these with the Housekeeper at North Shore for their attention. I am also sorry to hear you had problems using the garage provided with the property and note that the dimensions for this are stated on the website, this is something that we always ensure is available where a parking space may be smaller than average so a guest is aware of this at the time of booking. Thank you again for your Feedback. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic stay at North Shore, it was an amazing location with fantastic views & comfortable good quality amenities."

    We have a Ford Kuga and unfortunately were unable to use the garage but mainly managed to get a visitors space. It was great to have some milk, tea, coffee, local apple juice and chocolate plus the bag on arrival, a lovely touch. I would say the only issue which wasn't too much of an issue was the wi-fi is very slow, it would have been nice if it were better. We would definitely recommend and return.

    Dear Ms. Taylor, Thank you for taking the time to get you feedback to us. Its lovely to hear you had an enjoyable stay and we do agree, the view is really special and the location is ideal for exploring the bay and further afield. In regard to the parking, we are sorry to hear that you couldn't use the allocated space, we do try to give all our details you need in regards to measurements and description. Its great to hear that you would recommend and return, we hope to invite you back in the near future, Kind Regards, Owner Relations Team, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay in Northshore (even with G7 summit disruption!"

    ). The property is perfectly located right near the beach and train station (which is not noisy, or particularly visible at all), and we were treated to beautiful sunsets over the bay each night. The property is large and well appointed. It was a little confusing locating the key safe when we arrived, but we did manage to find it eventually once we got our bearings. It is a shame this particular apartment doesn't have a reserved parking space like several of the others, and though I did fit my Seat Leon estate in the garage one evening, it was extremely tight! There are some visitor spaces available to use which we managed to get most days, but these do fill up. Overall I would certainly return and would be happy to recommend Northshore.

    Dear Mr Murden, We are delighted to hear that you hand a wonderful stay, and hopefully got a glimpse of some VIP's during your stay. The key collection details have been looked at to confirm they are accurate and correct. In regard to the parking, the garage is classed as the allocated space for North Shore, the measurements for this are listed on our website. We hope to invite you back in the near future, Kind Regards, Owner Relations Team, Carbis Bay Holidays 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.
