  • "This was our second visit to the property so we obviously love it."

    Perfectly positioned for what we wanted, visiting the beautiful Carbis Bay beach and StIves. The only draw back for my partner is the sloping ceiling as he is very tall, also the flights of stairs were more difficult this year ( age is not kind) We had to move the bed to retrieve a dropped item and found a lot of dust etc. However the rest of apartment was spotless.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, we are so pleased that you love the property! We are sorry that you found some dust, we will pass this onto the housekeeper, however we are glad the rest of the apartment was spotless! Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Apartment was lovely my only complaints would be we were not advised there would be no cutlery knifes forks etc we assumed as there was everything else we would have those, we had to go buy."

    We also weren’t aware we were on the top floor and have a baby so was pretty difficult to keep getting up and down 3 sets of stairs a lift would’ve been very helpful the room also only had sky light windows which wasn’t great for ventilation or when it rained as couldn’t let any fresh air in.Lastly as a pet friendly accommodation would’ve been better if the sofa in living space was fully leather as they held a dog smell from being soft velvet also had many marks on which didn’t fulfill me with confidence about how clean it was, full leather would’ve been a lot easier to wipe to give confidence of cleanliness. Other then that stay was pleasant

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad to hear you had a pleasant stay. Sorry to hear you had to go and purchase cutlery, as stated in the property's quick start guide there is a note to state cutlery is to be found in concealed drawers within the drawers of the kitchen. Please note our local office is open Monday- Friday 9am-5:30pm and we will be more than happy to assist with any queries. We will be sure to pass on your feedback regarding the sofa to the owner for their consideration. Many thanks and we hope to welcome you back to again in the future. Kind regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "A small flat."

    The pictures were not misleading, but the layout was all wrong. The kitchen area was right in the corner, and I kept banging my head on the ceiling next to the fridge. The floor was dirty and the vacuum cleaner had loads of long hair stuck in it. There were no instructions or user manual for the oven, so I had to download one to work out how to use it. The sofa was dirty and needed cleaning before we sat on it, although to be honest it still looked dirty after that. Overall, some work needs to be done to improve what could be a cosy flat. Not worth what we paid for it.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you found the property not up to our usual standard. Now we are aware, this has been passed onto the housekeeper. We would always like the opportunity to rectify any points so please contact one of the local team on 01736 630015 and we will be able to assist straight away. Thank you again and we hope to get the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Water pressure in the shower was poor and the Wi-Fi rarely work which was particularly annoying on the evenings apart from that it was lovely."

    Thank you for your feedback. We are saddened to hear that you had a few issues. If you have anything like this during your stay please contact the local office on 01736 630015 option 2, and one of the local team will be able to assist you straight away.

  • "The instructions on how to entre the property left some room for interpretation."

    Also, the WiFi was not working. The frustration of this came from being unable to restart the router, as this is the most common way of resolving this issue. The guide made it clear that complaints about the WiFi would not be accepted, however I do feel WiFi is now an expected service.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback and comments following your stay at The Hideaway. We are saddened to hear you have had some issues with the Wi-Fi but hope you overall still had a lovely stay. As described in the Quick Start Guide of the property we are unfortunately not always able to offer technical support to enable the Wi-fi connection due to the number of third parties involved i.e. Internet Service Provider, British Telecom etc.. Therefore we cannot guarantee that the service will be available at all times. We want to assure you that we would still always do our utmost best to resolve any issues with the Wi-Fi connection if contacted under 01736 630015, Option 2. We have now amended the wording of the arrival description slightly to hopefully rule out any lack of clarity at this point going forward.

  • "Very nice apartment that suited my partner and I and our Springer spaniel well."

    A frying pan and a few more kitchen utensils would have been helpful. Our stay was the week before the heat wave and the apartment was hot so I think the following week would have been unbearable. Generally very happy with our holiday.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your feedback, as it is very important to us. We appreciate your comments and will look into the points you have raised to see if there is anything more we can do for guest arriving in the future.

  • "The property is well maintained, very spacious and was spotlessly clean."

    The lounge provided a lovely relaxing area with comfy settees and a large tv, especially after some long walks! The kitchen was well equipped for our stay and the coffee machine was an added bonus as was the complimentary welcome pack, local apple juice, biscuits, milk and chocolates, what a lovely touch! The bed was super comfy, and the linen of a high standard.Perhaps more storage in the bedroom would be my only suggestion. The bathroom was of high spec and again spotlessly clean. I would highly recommend this apartment and Carbis Bay Holidays as they also provide a great service and quick to respond to any questions.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the property and your stay! Thank you very much again for your comments and we hope to get the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kinds Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

A long day exploring the coast calls for a relaxing evening in the open-plan living area; set the dining table and prepare an easy evening meal in the kitchen area, complete with a fridge with ice box and a mini electric oven combination with microwave and a two ring hob, or kick-start your day with a delicious coffee from the coffee machine.

With excellent rail and bus links, it's easy to explore further afield from The Hideaway!

The iconic seaside town of St Ives is a short journey away for stunning beaches, fantastic art in Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, or take a boat trip across crystal waters to Seal Island to gaze back at the beautiful Cornish coastline.

About the location

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.
