  • "This is the third time we've stayed at this property and with good reason."

    It's a lovely place in a great location with views over the bay. The property itself is well maintained and really well equipped. On arrival it was spotlessly clean. Spending the evenings sat in the lounge watching TV with great views over towards St Ives is hard to beat. A short walk and you are on the beach plus an easy walk into St Ives should you wish. A lovely property.

  • "Really comfortable, high spec."

    Fabulous view, the garden is an absolute bonus, what more can you ask for!

  • "This is our second stay at the property."

    It is well furnished with just about everything you need for a stay, the views over Carbis Bay are superb. Many hours sat looking out over the bay from the window seat plus from the communal garden. Access to the beach is excellent and just a few minutes away. This property is well maintained and a credit to the owners, who clearly take some pride in the place. On arrival it was spotlessly clean and everything was as described. A great apartment.

    Thank you - it’s great to have such lovely feedback - we will keep working on it. Property Owner

  • "A wonderful week’s stay in a spacious, very clean and well kept apartment."

    The kitchen was very well equipped for eating in and the local area had several great places to eat, some of which are part of The Carbis Bay Estate. The views are breathtaking from a large window area in the lounge and show the beauty of Carbis Bay (5 min walk downhill) and St Ives (25 min costal walk). I would certainly recommend this property, and look forward to returning back in the future!

    Many thanks and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay! Look forward to hosting you again. Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely apartment with an outstanding view of Carbis Bay beach."

    The apartment itself was well laid out with all that you require for a holiday. It was clean and well presented with some nice touches. The window seat in lounge afforded a fantastic view of the bay and we spent ages just watching the world go by in Carbis Bay and St Ives in the distance. Would definitely recommend this place.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the property and your stay! Thank you so much again for your comments and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kinds Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

    The light and colours of the sea were amazing to watch. Well situated for walks from the door as we travelled by train so very handy for the train station. Enjoyed a very peaceful and relaxing fortnight with a few trips into St Ives by train, but so glad to come back to Carbis Bay! Good exercise walking down to the beach and back! Lovely to be able to sit in the garden to enjoy the views and watch the world go by. Would love to come again! Thank you so much.

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.
