  • "We had the most wonderful stay at White Sails!"

    The apartment was spotless & supplied with more than we could need. Beautiful bathrooms, comfy beds, perfectly clean & lots of added extras which just made our stay even better - the cupboard with a windbreak, beach chairs etc is a really great touch! The view is outstanding, I miss it already. The beach at Carbis Bay is so beautiful, great beach shop & snack place. We loved our week here & can’t wait to visit again, would 100% recommend this property! Thank you!

    Thank you for your wonderful Feedback following your holiday at White Sails and we are so pleased to hear you loved your week in Carbis Bay and that you appreciated the little extras left at the property for you. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

    Lovely to havd fresh milk and juice on arrival. The outdoor items including chairs and windbreaks are a useful touch. Can't fault any aspect of our stay here and we were sad to leave such a beautiful apartment.

  • "Beautiful apartment, clean and equipped to a high standard with everything you could want."

    The views are fantastic from the apartment and loved sitting by the floor to ceiling window in the bedroom. The location is great for the local beaches and walking into St. Ives along the coastal path. Would most definitely recommend White Sails and hopefully will return sometime in the future.

    Many thanks for your feedback Linda, it’s much appreciated. We wanted the apartment to be a place that we would want to use ourselves (we do !) and decided to equip and furnish it with that in mind. In fact, I sit in exactly the same place with a glass of wine ! Even in winter the views are stunning and I feel any stress just drain away. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I hope you will return at some point. Regards, White Sails Owners Property Owner

  • "Great stay at lovely property, has everything you need to relax and enjoy the fabulous views of Carbis bay."

    Location of property is great to explore local area on foot or by train if you want to leave car behind. The only thing that could improve the stay would be a 2nd set of door keys, when there are 4 adults staying not everyone wants to be together all the time.

  • ""From the first telephone call, the whole experience was professional, from the Sales office Staff to Julie our housekeeper."

    So polite & accommodating. The apartment superb. Welcoming, beautifully furnished, with the smallest of detail having been thought of. Fantastic views of Carbis Bay & ideally situated in easy reach of everywhere we wanted to visit. In fact, if we’d had longer, we would have spent the odd day with a cliff/beach walk, then simply relaxing in the apartment enjoying the peacefulness, sat on the balcony, glass of wine & a good book together with the wonderful fresh sea air.... Perfecto! The owners & Carbis Bay Holidays should be proud of themselves, as would take a lot to beat. Our Thanks to you all. "

    We only wish we had two weeks rather than one. The accommodation was great and beautifully clean. We had everything we needed and the children really appreciated the closeness of Carbis bay. And the Wii! We didn't eat out locally that much but tried The Loft in St Ives which we enjoyed a lot and Casita, the Italian up the road. Both were great and the service very good." S. Burkhill

  • ""We absolutely fell in love with the White Sails apartment."

    Everything was clean, fresh and well-equipped. Carbis Bay is beautiful with a lovely sandy beach and local cafe with great cappuccino. The Coastal walk to St Ives is a must as is the local train. The location was perfect for visits to Eden Project; Penzance; Lands End and the Lizard. We loved the little ferry from Rock to Padstow, although you need to get there early in the morning to get a parking space!" L. Smith

  • ""White Sails was great and of a high standard, highlights of our holiday included the walk from St Ives to Zennor, The National Trust property Trengwainton Garden (because they had the best cream tea we have had in a long time and a really good crab sandwich) and of course St Ives itself."

    We particularly liked our old favourite Al Frescos and the new restaurant Saltwater." S. Walter

  • ""We found White Sails to be well equipped and furnished to a high standard."

    It was well placed for getting to St Ives (the Coastal walk is a must!) the train at £2 return is also very good value. Carbis bay has a beautiful sandy beach, very good for families with young kids. Cleanliness of apartment was very good. The apartment is also very well located to get back to the A30 and go for day trips to Lands End, Lizard point and the Eden Project and Padstow - all within an hour. Restaurants to recommend in St Ives, Seafood cafe, Porthminster cafe, Gourmet fish & chips on St Ives wharf are the best ever." M. & N. Wallace

  • ""We had a fantastic holiday thank you!"

    White Sails was as lovely as it looked on your website and is definitely worthy of it's five star rating. It had everything that it promised and more and it was equipped and cleaned to a very high standard. We had a meal at the Italian restaurant at the top of the road and the food and service were excellent . We also had takeaway pizzas from there and they were just as good. Because the weather was so lovely, we spent our time walking and visiting the many art galleries in St Ives." S. Sykes

  • ""We stayed at the White Sails apartment, precisely how it is depicted on the web site."

    the quality of the apartment, the sensational view of the sea and the position - a few minutes walk from the lovely Carbis Bay (20 mins brisk walk to St Ives). The apartment was spotlessly clean, bright, airy and relaxing. It is well equipped with good quality fittings with some nice touches, such as the Bose ipod sound dock. It is rare for us to say that there was nothing that we could fault." W. Johnson

    TestimonialOct 2014

  • ""White Sails was a stunning apartment and immaculate."

    We chose it because we were one of 2 couples and it had 2 double rooms and I cannot fault it. We love the Pizza and Pasta Restaurant in St Ives and we had my 30th meal at the Carbis Bay hotel and the service was wonderful as was the food. Having Tesco up the road is also handy! Unfortunately we got hooked on the Nintendo Wii too so we had to buy one as soon as we got home! We never miss the seal sanctuary at Gweek and just along from St Ives and Carbis Bay at Godrevy we like to go and see the seals on the beach in the wild - it's amazing." P. Sheen

About the location

CARBIS BAY

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.
