    “The apartment was very comfortable with good facilities .”

    The cleaning was not of a good standard there was dust and hairs on a lot of surfaces the shower wasn't very clean. We spoke to the man who was cleaning the apartment and he told us he had 16 apartments to clean that day which would explain why it wasn't very clean. I felt like the money we paid for the apartment would have included an amount for the cleaning of the apartment and so we paid for something that didn't happen. We have always previously used Aspects holidays and never had a problem ...

We have always previously used Aspects holidays and never had a problem with the apartment being dirty this was our first time with Carbis holidays and was a little disappointed

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 town 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 boutique 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 branchline. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country.
