  • "The apartment is immaculate with exceptional views of the sea."

    I especially loved the sea view from the bed whilst having a cup of tea in the morning. The sofas and beds very comfortable. Kitchen/bathroom is well equipped with all the modern appliances. Loved the overall decor. The welcome gifts of wine, chocolate, biscuits and flowers and a gift of a bag were lovely. I would recommend my friends to visit. Thank you.

    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 hope to welcome you back in the future. Kinds Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "What a fabulous apartment, loved all the extras on arrival."

    Stunning views, so clean and well equipped re living memories of when mum and dad brought us to Carbis Bay as children (60 years ago) well worthy of its 5* rating, cannot improve on perfection. Thank you for sharing your lovely home, made so many more memories. Just perfect.

  • "The facilities at the apartment are superb and the location is stunning."

    Its a shame the beach is not controlled better. Being woken up at 5-6 am each morning by dogs constantly yapping up and down the beach is not really conducive to a relaxing holiday. Also the life guards have chosen not to enforce excluding paddle boarders in the "swimmers only" section making it unsafe for children to swim on their own - I myself was hit by a paddle boarder in this supposedly safe area. This did detract from the holiday as the beach and its proximity to the apartment is the main attraction.

  • "Flat was perfect."

    Experience was ruined by delays returning deposit which has still not been returned nearly three weeks after returning.

  • "First time in this apartment and it lived up to the pictures online."

    Lots of lovely extras, very comfortable and of course the fabulous view! It was lovely to come away after lockdown to great weather and a much needed break. Definitely will return. David & Jan from Derbyshire

  • "6th time in these wonderful apartments what we now consider a home from home."

    Came last March just before lockdown which was our last holiday and booked it as soon as we could after lockdown was lifted so our first much needed and long dreamed of holiday. It was all we had hoped for and more. Thank you Cornwall, thank you Carbis Bay, Thank you Surf & Sand, Thank you sunshine…You’ve reminded us of the most precious thing in life is the crazy days of time! To be happy. X x x Liz & Michael

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.

The Good Housekeeping Bond for this property is £150.

Access from the car parking area is down 8 steps and then up 8 steps to access the apartment.
