  • "Wonderful week in a beautiful apartment."

    Stayed here many times and will be returning later in the year. Says it all, I think. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful, positive feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you like the property so much that you keep coming back! We look forward to welcoming you back later in the year and thank you again for taking the time to leave us your feedback. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Fantastic apartment in a lovely seaside location."

    The apartment was lovely and clean with everything we needed. We had one issue though. There was building work being done to two adjacent apartments meaning that there was A LOT of noise during the day. We were pre warned (about 48 hours earlier), but didn’t realise it would be as bad and as noisy as it was. We received a voucher for a local restaurant as ‘compensation’ but this restaurant was closed for the month January so pretty useless. We would expect some form of refund for the inconvenience - over to to you Sykes Cottages.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you experienced some disturbance during your stay. Your feedback has now been referred to our Property Management Team at the local office who will investigate and come back to you directly. Again, we are sorry for any inconvenience caused. Thank you. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "The apartment was stunning and warm."

    The welcome pack was a lovely touch to. Views from the window were superb and it was lovely to wake up in the morning and look at the waves on the beach though the doors in the bedroom. Would definitely stay again.

  • "Wavetop was everything we knew it was going to be."

    We’ve stayed here for a number of years and it is always beautifully clean, extremely well equipped, superbly comfortable and has an unrivalled view over St Ives Bay. We’ve had a wonderful week with daily sunshine, balcony breakfasts and evening drinks, beach picnics, strolls into St Ives, a couple of restaurant dinners....and watching dolphins from the balcony has been an added bonus. We’ll be back in October for another Wavetop ‘fix’.

    Dear Mrs Symms, Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. We appreciate you sending your feedback and its lovely to hear that you are returning in a few weeks time. Its wonderful to hear you had the opportunity to see dolphins. We hope you have a lovely stay in October, Kind Regards, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • "Our holiday was excellent we have been using Carbisbay holidays for 14 years and have 2 further stays 1 Oct and 1 Nov after those we will not be using Carbisbay holidays due to the greed and lack of care Sykes have for its customers and staff 40 percent increase in rental prices are pure profiteering and greed !"


    Dear Nigel, Thank you for your comments. As you know, we have revised the pricing for 2022 to what we feel is a balanced and fair level and one which is more in keeping with what we are trying to achieve at Wavetop. You will also be pleased to know that we have also put back the maps, books and cushions to restore Wavetop's home from home appeal. The Owners --------------------------------- Dear Nigel, Firstly we are glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back in the coming months. The pricing has been set due to the demand for holidays and properties in St Ives and Carbis Bay for 2022, however they are constantly being monitored and reviewed by our owners and here in the local Carbis Bay Holiday's office as a team. Kind regards, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • ""As soon as we opened the door to Wavetop we knew we were going to have a wonderful week."

    The apartment was absolutely immaculate! We’ve stayed in Wavetop on many occasions and we love this well equipped, extremely comfortable apartment. The views are amazing across St Ives Bay, from St Ives itself around to Godrevy Lighthouse. Already booked for next year - twice! What more can be said? Thank you to everyone at CBH. We’ve had another fantastic week with you. _(Particular thanks must be given to the cleaners who had obviously worked so hard to ensure the property was ‘Covid safe’! Hand wash and sanitiser were provided, along with additional cleaning materials should we need them.)"

  • ""Wavetop is a lovely place to stay, the view is amazing!"

    You can lie in the very comfortable bed and hear the waves in the front bedroom, which is so relaxing. The flat has everything you could need and is a great base to explore Cornwall from. The beach is a short walk away and there is a nice place to get a coffee or ice cream."

  • ""Had an amazing holiday in Wavetop, one of the Carbis Bay apartments."

    The booking experience was excellent. We were met at the apartment which was great. The apartment had the most amazing selection of gadgets in the kitchen and for once - sharp knives. Two ladies called on the middle Saturday to change the linen which was a bonus. Loved it all so much we have already booked again for next year. I would highly recommend Carbis Bay Holidays."

  • ""Wavetop is such a beautiful apartment, spotlessly clean, well furnished with everything required for a relaxing holiday."

    We had breakfast on the balcony most mornings and enjoyed sitting out in the evening drinking in the view - and the odd glass of something alcoholic! The welcome pack with a cream tea, milk, tea bags, coffee, apple juice and chocolate were much appreciated - thank you! Our holiday was all we wanted it to be......and we’ve already booked for 2020!"

  • ""Our fifth visit to Wavetop and already looking forward to a return visit in August."

    Wavetop is a comfortable, well equipped apartment with a wonderful view across St Ives Bay. Everything was spotlessly clean in our arrival and we enjoyed the cream tea sitting on the balcony overlooking the sea. We loved the new bathrooms and the frameless glass around the balcony. Thank you so much. We had another wonderful Carbis Bay holiday."

  • ""My family and I love Carbis Bay and have been holidaying here for the past 9 years in all Seasons."

    We have always used Carbis Bay Holidays due to the high quality of properties available. We first stayed in Wavetop 4 years ago and have never stayed anywhere else since. It is perfect for us, the apartment is to an exceptional standard and has everything you could wish for and more. It is situated in a great location so we can easily pop down to the beach or up to the branch line to visit St Ives. But my biggest wow factor is the view, I just love it, you have uninterrupted views of the sea from the master bedroom and living room. It’s breathtaking in all weathers. We love it here and will continue to return x"

    Superb apartment with spectacular views. Loved every minute. Discovered the Victoria Inn at Perranporth – fabulous food and great service. A lovely village with a great walk on the coastal path to Marazion. As always National Trust Godrevy Cage was superb – amazing food and great walks on beach or cliff tops/coastal path. Sunday lunch at Victoria Inn is excellent – do book it, you won’t be disappointed! In all, a brilliant holiday at the best apartment. We will be back.

    TestimonialApr 2016

  • ""All arrangements were seamless and very professional and the apartment of Wavetop to be of the highest best standard we have stayed in, as we normally stay in 5 star hotels in Asia, so we were a little comprehensive what we would expect, but this was un-founded, with the cleanest, best equipped apartment ever rented, with a high standard of fittings and fully equipped to make the visit very pleasant, and with the water front view, we found the whole experience very enjoyable."

    It was a real home from home enjoyed by us all; everything had been thought of to make our stay comfortable, and all the furniture, linen and decor was beautiful. Despite the rain we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - we're missing the wonderful view now!" Caroline Godfrey.

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.
