  • "We had a lovely stay."

    Everything was clean, tidy and modern within the property. It was a good walk into St Ives which I enjoyed. My daughter less so, but that’s kids for you. We were within easy reach to Carbis Bay and the train station, as well as Tesco’s which was handy. I thought the exterior of the property could have done with some TLC and no oven gloves at the property proved a bit challenging. Over all though, it was a lovely property and we enjoyed ourselves.

  • "So we turned up and surprisingly the key was in the door and not the safe."

    The house also had a damp smell when we first arrived which either went or we got used to it. Bed a little too soft for us but that's a taste thing, and there were a couple of very minor things. We loved our stay at the house though. Great location comfortable and just a great place to return to every evening after we had been out exploring St Ives and Cornwall.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted to hear you loved your stay at the house. We do apologies the key was left in the door and not in the key safe, we will be sure to follow this up with the housekeeper. We are sorry to hear there were a few minor issues during your stay and we will be sure to investigate the damp smell. Despite this, we hope you had a wonderful holiday, and we hope we get the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Everything about the stay was lovely, comfortable and ideal."

    Thank you for the goodies and bag x The only negatives would be the green slippery paths and steps through the back “ to the beach” gate. We all enjoyed our stay very much.

  • "We enjoyed our stay."

    It was very clean inside the property. We did have an issue with rats in the garden. We reported this immediately bit due to us arriving Saturday evening it couldn't be dealt with until Monday. This did have an effect on our use of the outside because we has a dog and we were concerned he would catch a rat and be ill, we also didn't use the ta les and chairs due to the possibility of rats running over them. Apart from that we had a pleasant stay. One issue which needs to be addressed is when approaching the property at night more lighting would have been useful as there are steep stone steps to go down to enter the property.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and that the property was very clean inside. We are very sorry to hear of the issues you experienced during your stay, and we can confirm we have had a local pest control company attend and are monitoring the situation. We will be sure to pass on your suggestion to the owner. We hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "The apartment was fabulous and very clean."

    It was a lovely quite location. The furnishings were lovely too and we had everything we needed for our stay. There is a lovely decked area with views of the sea which was lovely in the evening with a glass of wine in the sun. We took our dog and the garden was perfect and very safe for him. Transport was great into St Ives as the bus stop was right outside. I did find the property hard to locate off the main road so would be better if the property had a sign at the end of the driveway. The parking space is at the back of the property is quite tight if you have a larger car as I did. There are steep steps down to the property so if any issues with mobility then I wouldn’t recommend. Overall it was a great stay and would definitely go again and stay here. 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.
