  • "Great stay, beautiful property."

    Beds were a little too soft for us but that was our only complaint. Everything we needed was at the property. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Sea Glass

    Thank you so much for your feedback as it is very important to us! We are very pleased that you have had such a great stay and have rated the property so high with regards to cleanliness, facilities, accuracy of listing and comfort. Thank you for your comment with regards to the mattress, unfortunately, this is a personal preference, so as you can imagine it is difficult to get it just right for every guest, however we will pass your feedback on to the necessary department to look into. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Thank you for our lovely stay at Sea Glass."

    A very modern, spacious and comfortable property. No complaints at all. We had a very relaxing stay. I have stayed in Carbis Bay many times. The area is great if you just want to relax, sit on the beach, do some walking and not rely on a car. Wonderful supermarket (Tesco) just up the road from Sea Glass and a lovely walk down to the beach. A bit of a walk uphill back but I enjoyed the exercise. In fact, I am thinking about not booking an abroad holiday later in the year and coming back to Carbis Bay.

    Dear Ms Homes, thank you for your lovely Feedback following your recent stay at Sea Glass and so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back to Carbis Bay again in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Very nice Apartment in good location and nicely furnished My one complaint is not the Apartment but the ridiculous rule about putting dirty linen in bags It is not a problem and we did not mind doing this but What is the purpose ?"

    This does not prevent covid

    Dear Mr Poulton, thank you for taking the time to leave Feedback following your recent stay at Sea Glass and I am pleased to hear you felt the property was in a good location and nicely furnished. With regards to the linen bags, as I’m sure you appreciate the safety of our guests and Housekeeping team is of the utmost importance to us and although the bags do not prevent COVID, as they are dis-solvable they facilitate reduced handling throughout the laundry process of potentially infected bedding. We are hoping to be able to remove this requirement in the near future. We look forward to welcoming you back to Carbis Bay again in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Unfortunately I am a light phobic at night and find it hard to sleep with a bright LED from a smoke detector at night or the curtains not being blackout lined which is the only recommendation I would suggest as there is too much light from outside coming in."

    The double mattress in the main room is a bit too soft for us, which is why we used the other bedroom and it is a little bit darker also.

    Dear Mr Clark-Smith, thank you for taking the time to leave Feedback following your stay at Sea Glass and I’m sorry to hear you were disturbed by the light coming into the bedroom through the window.. I am pleased to advise our Property Management team have attended and the timings on the light outside the bedroom window have been reset so should no longer disturb anyone’s sleep during the night. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards The Carbis bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

    All of the small touches were greatly appreciated (chocs, white company goodies, milk, etc). Such a luxurious apartment with all of the creature comforts - we now want Disney+ at home! The kids loved all the books & board games. Absolutely beautiful setting and escape after a rotten 18 months. Thank you! x

  • "Found a used pair of underpants in the room, bottle tops and pulled up plants on the patio, left beer box in the cupboard empty, only one set of keys when the cleaner said I’d taken a set never had 2 sets in the first place."

    Noise from upstairs was not good. Dust top of the bed head in main bedroom thick with dust. Windows dirty.

    Sea Glass had everything we needed an more. The perfect spot to watch England get into the final of the Euros and watch plenty of Netflix in the rainy evenings. Beds were super comfy and made it difficult to get up in the mornings. Would definitely recommend to friends and would love to come again. Thank you :-)

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.
