    The apartment is well presented, spotlessly clean and a wonderful base to explore the surrounding area. Highly recommended!

  • "We’ve visited Sapphire (and some other apartments in the same complex) several times since around 2010, and it never disappoints."

    Perfect for a really relaxing holiday, beautifully clean, well appointed, good WiFi signal, everything you could possibly need in a holiday apartment. Also, good local amenities with a stunning view of the beach, railway station to St Ives or further afield if you want just round the corner. I’ve never bested this lovely holiday experience.

  • "Had a really lovely week staying in Sapphire for the first time."

    Drove 400 miles and the apartment and view is well worth it. Had fantastic weather all week, sunny every day with beautiful sunsets and sunrises (these are especially worth getting up early for!). We took a couple of boat trips from St Ives - would recommend the Nemo glass bottomed boat to Seal Island and Blue charter yellow fin fishing trip. We also thoroughly enjoyed trips to Lands End, Eden Projects and Godrevy Nature Reserve. We went down to the beach nearly every day and even gave paddle boarding a go which was very reasonably priced at £10 an hour. We've had such a relaxing holiday here, and already looking at booking again next year!

  • "A superb apartment with an incredible view."

    Favourite places in Cornwall visited, but always looked forward to returning to Sapphire. A huge part of our holiday experience. Constructively, I would say there is not enough comfortable seating in the lounge area. There were only three of us and we struggled a bit. A couple of knobs missing on the twin room drawers was a bit tricky. I'm sure it was me, but washer/dryer confusing. Understand limitations but a place to park on arrival after a very long journey would be hugely helpful and attractive. Please take this as constructive criticism. We had a fabulous time, always enjoy our holidays with you and can't wait to return.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear you had a fabulous holiday. Sapphire has one allocated parking space which is available from 4pm on the day of arrival for the duration of the guest's stay until 10am on the departure day. The space is used by the housekeeping and maintenance team between 10am – 4pm on arrival and departure days. There are 2 double settees in the lounge area. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

    Fabulous view - so great to come back to after a day out. Great bath - filled so quickly - lots of hot water. Beds so comfy - fabulous pillows/duvets/quilts. Stayed many times with Carbis Bay Holidays, Cornwall has been a family favourite for decades. Had a very special holiday!

  • "Gorgeous property and we would love to return - do you offer a return discount?"

    I personally think there should be a towel changeover mid week or an extra set left for use. Also for your information the fridge freezer was wonderful and the ice machine such a bonus but it dispenses the ice at such force - although we used a large glass or bowl to catch in, I fear many people will simply allow it to fall onto the floor and long term damaging may occur. Maybe a note on machine or a cup placed for use?? Also the same sort of issue with the shower screen over the bath. The showers are so wonderfully powerful it is a challenge to keep the water contained. We were respectful but again not sure everyone would be!!

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this lovely feedback after your stay in Sapphire. We will pass your comments on for consideration and we thank you for bringing them to our attention. We hope to welcome you back to Carbis Bay in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "There is no place like this!"

    It is the best apartment in Carbis bay! The apartment was excellent and very spacy. The view was unforgettable, we sat outdoor on the terrace every morning for breakfast and could also dine "al fresco". There was nothing missing, the kitchen was full-equiped and we even found some beach-accessories. The best thing was to sit on the terrace with a morning cup of tea or coffee and to look at the beach and hear the waves rolling on the sand. We loved it!

  • "I laughed when I saw someone had driven all the way from The Midlands - we drove from Edinburgh for this view!"

    - 14 hours! The view was so worth this drive. When we arrived, we couldn't do much but sit on the sun deck - by then in twilight - and look at the view. Whilst we slotted in a few trips to some local attractions, the best part by far was coming back to this view. We sat most evenings, aiming to read or chat but succeeded at little more than seal spotting. Having gone through all the pros and cons of the apartments we looked at online, Sapphire was by a Cornish mile. We will definitely look into booking again for next year (if not sooner). If Carbis Bay is the best beach in Cornwall, then Sapphire has the best view!

  • "First stay at Sapphire, however have stayed in the complex back in 2011 and have been back every year either Carbis Bay or St Ives."

    Definitely an unrivalled breathtaking view which we never get tired off. Stunning apartment, well stocked with all essentials, everything has been thought of. Loved the terrace and sitting watching the changing sea, sky and beauty. This week we have seen 2 weddings, King Charles visit, eaten at Carbis Bay Hotel. Highly recommend the Ugly Butterfly. Until next time.

    Sadly the weather did not play ball for the full week but that’s why an apartments with every possible comfort is great. One small fly in the ointment (nothing to do with apartment) was neighbours who sat outside from early hours right through to around 6:30 am for 2 nights. Actually heard a gentleman shout at them to shut up so wasn’t just us that were affected. That said we will be back.

    The location is excellent with outstanding sea views. However the advertised access gate to the beach was permanently locked and unusable, meaning a longer walk round to get to the beach. We would like to thank the owner for all the very thoughtful and delicious things that were left for us. The gift of the pretty Carbis Bay bag was much appreciated too.

    Dear Philip, we are so pleased to hear that you found the property immaculately clean and managed to enjoy the tasteful decor and sea views.

  • "We have stayed in Sapphire previously so were looking forward to arriving but we were very disappointed this time with the cleanliness."

    The welcome box of biscuits was smashed up and ripped which didn't give a good impression. The fridge was dirty and had to be cleaned before we could pack our food away, there was hair in the bread bin and some of the glasses were dirty with lipstick marks. The ensuite toilet had hairs on the back of the seat, there were hairs in the bath and the shower in the other bathroom. It did make we worry if the bedsheets hadn't even been changed but I was pleased to see that they had been! The large key fob for the car gate didn't work when we took it out which created hassle getting the car back into the car park and one of the bulbs had gone in the wall lights in the lounge (I found a spare in the drawer near the sink so replaced it myself). I am happy to send some photos over if you provide me with an email address. On a separate note, it would be nice to know before booking or before arrival that there wouldn't be any Christmas decorations up (so we could bring something of our own). We have stayed in a few other apartments in the block over the years in the same week before Christmas and it is nice to have decorations (just a decorated tree) put up before your arrival. Staying at the apartments at Carbis Bay makes a nice Christmas holiday but it kind of killed off the Christmas spirit for our children leaving our decorated house to spend a week in an undecorated apartment only to return back into Christmas again before Christmas day.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback and comments following your stay at Sapphire and we are very sorry to hear the cleanliness of the property was not up to our usual standard this time. We want to assure you that these issues will be addressed. The large key fob has been fixed and is now working. We do encourage all guests to notify Carbis Bay Holidays at the beginning of their stay if there are any issues so that they can be rectified straight away on 01736 630015 Option 2. This number is also prominently displayed in the apartment. We are always happy to provide Christmas decorations on request. We hope you still overall had a pleasant stay at Sapphire and would look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. With Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "The master bedroom had an unpleasant smell, reminiscent of vomit (and here were two odour neutralisers in the room behind the curtains) which was not very nice."

    The rest of the property was lovely. Some extra towels would have been nice as they didn’t dry very quickly and as we were showering off sand and salt water daily they were pretty gross towards the end of the stay.

    Thank you for your feedback which is always appreciated. We are sorry to hear that there was an unpleasant odour in the main bedroom. We have very high standards of cleanliness and have contacted our housekeeper to ensure that checks are done after each clean to ensure our standards are met. I suspect it was a cleaning cloth that needed changing. We advise all guest to contact Carbis Bay Holidays on arrival if there are any issues with the apartment so they can be quickly rectified. The small containers underneath the curtains are not odour eaters (we have never had odour problems in the bedroom before) but are dehumidifiers which collect water. These are only really needed in winter so we have asked our housekeeper to remove them. We have in previous years provided 3 towels for each guest but we have reduced to one large bath sheet and one hand towel for each guest for environmental reasons. There are large heated towel rails in both bathrooms, which can be turned on for 2 hours using the button on the dial at the base of the radiators, if towels are damp. In winter the radiators come on with the heating. We also have a washer/dryer machine in the kitchen. Property Owner Property Owner

    The views from both the bedroom and lounge are simply breathtaking. Going to sleep and waking up to that view and the sound of the sea from your bed is just priceless. We even saw seals one morning as there are binoculars there for you to use. It’s spacious, has everything you need and immaculately clean. The balcony is huge, fully furnished and private. It’s a great place to sit with a glass of wine just taking in the views. Easy access to beach and bars/restaurants either local at the hotel or by train , which is literally a few minutes walk from the apartment and will take you into St Ives (which is the next stop). Alternatively you can walk there which takes around 25 mins along the coastal path. We had the most amazing holiday here and didn’t want to leave. We would whole heartedly recommend this apartment.

    The lack of a lift for some would be difficult, though the flat is ground floor, there are 2 staircases to negotiate with luggage etc (no lift). The hallway would benefit from some coat hooks, particularly on wet days - there is always one in Cornwall. Loved our time there. Ian and Elaine

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you loved your time here. We are sorry you didn't find the lift. It is located by the first set of steps by the entrance gate. There is a path at the bottom of the lift to our apartment. We will ask the Management Company if they can put some signs up. We have some hooks for coats in the hallway cupboard but appreciate that when coats are wet this is not suitable. We have tall towel rail radiators in both bathrooms which we use when our coats are wet. If you don't need the heating to be on the towel rails can be turned on independently using the dials on the radiators. They are set to turn off automatically after 2 hours if the heating is not on.

    A fantastic location, the apartment was generally ok, however I felt that it was let down by the lack of attention to detail, we cooked in and found the lack of a pair of oven gloves dangerous, I even burnt my finger removing an item from the oven, there was only 1 tea towel, sponge scourer, dish cloth etc, it didnt spoil the stay but was an inconvenience, I'm just glad we didnt pay summer season prices, also the lounge door handle was on the dining table when we arrived, again lack of attention to detail, luckily the weather was superb combined with the lack of people more than made up for these minor details

  • "Back here again."

    Fantastic as usual. Could never tire of this view. I had a fabulous time on the November 5th beach firework display at St Ives. Enjoyed walking the coastal path to St Ives, only took about half an hour each way. Its been very mild weather for November, didn’t even need a coat one day. Love this apartment.

    TestimonialNov 2018

  • "Absolutely fabulous."

    We stayed in another of the Carbis Beach apartments and its wasn’t a patch on this one, that property was with a different holiday company. This is amazing, couldn’t want for better than Carbis Bay Holidays. We are floored with how clean the apartment is and the welcome back was a very welcomed treat after such a long journey down to Cornwall. We will be back, thank you. So comfy could stay forever.

    TestimonialNov 2018

  • "We had a fabulous time at the Sapphire apartment."

    It was very modern and spacious and has everything you need and more. Carbis Bay is a great location to explore Cornwall. We partially enjoyed Porthleven, Kynance Cove and Mousehole. We hope to be back one day.

    TestimonialSep 2018

  • "We have had an amazing week at Sapphire."

    Loved the location, made the holiday very easy with daily trips to the beach to body board. Walked into St Ives several times and caught the train back, quite an easy walk for older kids (8 & 11). Highly recommend the restaurant on the beach for cocktails and snacks, also Porthminster Kitchen is fabulous, Fire house and Porthminster beach café all great, they all have kids’ menus too. Book your meals, it gets very busy! We visited St Michaels Mount which is worth a visit but get there early 9.30AM to avoid the ques, otherwise it’s a nightmare. Also, the Minack Theatre is amazing and a must see. We saw dolphins during out stay and even kayaked with a shark. We will be back again soon, thank you.

    TestimonialSep 2018

  • "This was the eighth time we have stayed in Carbis Bay and booked though Carbis Bay Holidays, so we knew that our accommodation would be excellent, but we were taken back when we walked into ‘Sapphire’."

    The view over the bay is beautiful and the apartment itself is so well equipped and spacious. Loved the outside space too and the walk though the garden seemed much easier than the dreaded hill! As always, the train service to/from St Ives was excellent, and we enjoyed the coastal path walk there on day. The beach is as safe as a beach can be for the kids and Alfie had a great time joining the activities with the Ocean Sports centre kids club, only £12.50 for 1-1/2 hours including equipment hire. The instructors are all brilliant with the children. We saw dolphins and seals in the bay one evening and enjoyed a day out at Kynance Cove which is simply breath-taking. Already look forward to out next visit.

    TestimonialJul 2018

Would certainly recommend La Casita, great restaurant, great food and friendly staff. Does get busy so best to book in advance. Also, the Beach Club restaurant does lovely food, we recommend the sharing board, excellent. Already looking forward to our next visit to Carbis Bay. Thank you for another fantastic holiday!

    TestimonialMay 2018

  • "This is our third visit to Carbis Bay apartments but our first to Sapphire and it certainly is THE BEST!"

    A real home from home, so comfortable. It was lovely to meet the owners a really charming couple. The weather has been kind and been somewhere different every day. Kynance Cove, stunning. Godrevy is the place your most likely to see seals. We are very well travelled all over the world, but Cornwall takes some beating. Hope to be back next year. Thank you! P.s Kerry and team are amazing. Kerry, so helpful and the cleaners are brilliant, the flat was spotless. Thank you too to Carbis Bay Holidays.

    TestimonialMay 2018

  • "On our first visit to Sapphire we were warmly welcomed by Kerry and shown to our apartment and WOW, what an exceptional apartment."

    Spotlessly clean and fresh, extremely spacious and comfortable, and very well equipped. Good secure flat allocated parking space too. Spent most of our time either on the beach or taking in the amazing views of the bay from the decking area. We were lucky enough to see seals and dolphins on several occasions. We highly recommend ‘The Cornish Arms’ for somewhere to ear, a local pub about a 30minute walk (steep in places) located on the main toad to St Ives, just passed Tesco’s/ Or a 5-minute drive (parking in the side street). Excellent food (with real home-made chips) at very good prices. Also, Beck’s Fish & Chips, again lovely food. We have all had a fantastic week and have been lucky with the weather too. It’s a place we would love to come back to. Thank you.

  • ""We had a fabulous week in Sapphire."

    It's a beautiful apartment (has everything you need and is equipped to a very high standard) with that stunning view over the beach - we just couldn't stop staring at the sea!! We kept ourselves busy with golf (2 days) and walking (did the coastal path to Zennor then back on the inland route which was tough but enjoyable). Ate out a couple of nights and very much enjoyed the Porthminster Beach Cafe which we would highly recommend although I'm sure plenty of others do also!" C Hartley

R. Barker

    TestimonialMay 2015

    From the minute we arrived and were warmly welcomed by the housekeeper, and then completely taken aback by the breathtaking view as we entered the apartment.

The café at Godrevy was also a delight and the beaches around there amazing." L. Scott

    TestimonialOct 2014

  • "We had a fabulous time and all enjoyed our stay."

    This is probably the 4th or 5th time that we have stayed , we walked into st Ives a few times and ate in a few favorite restaurants and also in the Italian at the top of the road – La Casita.The weather was great and we were as always impressed with the apartment but my son more so as we had Sky sports which enabled us to watch the football and then movies so a great addition!! R. Westmacott

    TestimonialOct 2014

  • "The apartment was splendid - very spacious and very enjoyable to be staying in."

    It was almost like a home from home but with a fabulous sea view! The quality of the apartment was outstanding, cleanliness was second to none. We used many of the local restaurants and at Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant in Padstow were good - the latter being fabulous! Being able to cook ourselves was a bonus too for the evenings when we just wanted to relax, listening to the rolling tide on the beach below. We did the coastal walk from Carbis to St Ives and back and of course up and down the beach at Carbis Bay collecting shells and photographing the patterns made on the sand by the tides. Quite inspirational. We spotted the seal also in the bay but no dolphins despite searching avidly for them throughout each day. As always, upon leaving the area, I personally was sad to have to leave - having had such a relaxing and rejuvenating time there. S. Richards

    TestimonialSep 2014

The standard of equipment, linen and furnishings was very good. The location was all we hoped for from the descriptions you gave and the view from the patio was magnificent. All in all it was an excellent base for a holiday." A. Lyons

    TestimonialAug 2014

  • ""As it was our first time to Cornwall, I was pleased that my lengthy research paid off."

    Having a 4 & 7 year old, we wanted a beach within walking distance, a view that we could sit out and enjoy of an evening when they were in bed and a high standard of accommodation. I really don't think we could have chosen better for our needs. The weather wasn't always fantastic so it was great that there was plenty to keep the kids occupied in the way of games/dvd's etc." S. Anderson

    TestimonialAug 2014

  • ""The accommodation was absolutely fantastic."

    The views from the decking were wonderful and I'm still seeing that sun rise over the horizon. It is the perfect location with that wonderful little train so close by.

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.

There is a Good Housekeeping Bond of £100 for this property.
