    The property is perfectly situated for the train down into St Ives also for Carbis Bay beach. We love to come back to the property's peace and tranquility after a busy day in St Ives! The views are absolutely stunning from the property's main living space. Thank you, I'm sure we will be back next Easter! :0)

  • "We had a lovely stay at Sandsifters 2."

    On arrival the accommodation was spotlessly clean, fully equipped with everything we needed and the views from the living area were stunning! The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Due to the weather we didn't use the garden or balcony area but it would be lovely to utilise in the warmer weather. We enjoyed exploring various local beaches and the train to St Ives is only a 2 minute walk. Overall a great property in a lovely location, we would recommend to others and hope to return again in the future.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you had such a wonderful stay and loved the property just as much as we do! We hope to welcome you back in the near future and that the weather will allow you to use the beautiful outside areas! Thank you again for your kind comments.

  • "The house is really lovely with great views."

    It is well equipped but the bedroom with the bath has an extremely uncomfortable mattress ( very hard ) This was our 4th visit. I think this should be mentioned to the owners. Otherwise a very nice stay Anthony

    Dear Anthony, thank you for your Feedback following your recent stay at Sandsifters II and I do hope you enjoyed another lovely stay in Carbis Bay. I am very sorry to hear you found the mattress at the property hard, this is of course a matter of personal taste but I have forwarded your comments on to the owners for their consideration. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "The front door bell doesn’t seem to work."

    Do the extractor fans in the bathrooms? Our jury was out! But otherwise all was good, thank you. We really appreciated the c-spa passes. It will be a disappointment if these aren’t available next year.,

    Thank you for taking the time to leave Feedback following your recent stay at Sandsifters II. I have asked the Housekeeper at the property to check out the doorbell. With regards to the bathroom fans, our electrician has checked these out and I believe they needed to be turned on at the isolator switch. With regards to the Spa Passes, I’m very sorry but I’m afraid in future the hotel will no longer be permitting non hotel residents to use their Spa facilities so it will not be possible for the owners of Sandsifters II to renew the passes when they expire in May 2022 but hopefully at this time a suitable alternative will be in place. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • ""The property is amazing and really has the wow factor."

    The views from the apartment are spectacular. Sat on the balcony or looking out from the living area was a very special experience. It is very spacious, comfortable and relaxing and is supplied with everything you could need. There is plenty of outdoor space with a balcony and a garden. The decor is immaculate, very modern and clean with high spec appliances and a very well-equipped kitchen and utility room. Peaceful and quiet with good parking and a short walk to the lovely beach. It ticks every box. You couldn’t get any better. "

Sandsifters II is better in real life than what’s on the website. Easy parking and access, fantastic views and more. perfect if you have rainy days. Highly recommended."

    ReviewJun 2019

  • ""To be honest we paid over our budget for the week in Carbis Bay but as soon as we opened the front door we knew we had made the right decision."

    Sandsifters II is an extremely well appointed accommodation with high end fixtures and fittings. But the star of the show is the panoramic view of the bay that greets you as you enter the open plan living area, that you never tire of looking at. The less than 3 minute walk to the train station is another bonus for access to St Ives."

    It has wonderful views and no expense has been spared to make this a very special holiday home, we loved it. Carbis Bay Holidays were very helpful in responding to my request for an early check-in which we really appreciated. The staff I had contact with were always friendly, helpful and very pleasant."

  • ""My wife and I both loved Sandsifters II."

    We saw the property being developed whilst staying at another Carbis Bay Holidays home back in June this year and I booked it immediately for our annual November visit when you added it to your portfolio. What a terrific space and position. An absolute joy to live in and admire the entire stunning St Ives Bay. We loved everything about the property from the easy access parking to the pristine white decor, the floods of light from the massive windows and rooflights and the absolute quality of the entire household offer. Sandsifters II is top of our list and we can't wait to return!" Bernard Turczynski

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. Carbis Bay is truly a wonderful holiday location for those wanting to experience Cornwall's breathtaking coastline.
