  • "Weather not too kind but we were very comfortable and really enjoyed the view."

    Apartment was tastefully decorated. Two minor issues: Dressing table/desk would have been brilliant if only the mirror was lower. Not being 7ft tall I couldn’t see to dry my hair from a sitting position. The other issue no “dustpan and brush”. This would have been helpful to sweep up crumbs rather than getting out the vacuum cleaner! All in all a fantastic place to stay.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you had such a lovely stay and enjoyed the view. Thank you so much for making us aware of these areas, we have reported them to the necessary departments to investigate, but again we thank you for your constructive points. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kinds Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Stay was absolutely worth every penny."

    Waking up to the view of greenish blue sea view was breathtaking and refreshing. We didn’t feel like going out to explore rest of St. Ives when were in the property, that itself was so relaxing. All the facilities in the property was absolutely what you need to make you feel at home. The little welcome treats were really good. My toddler and eight year old thoroughly enjoyed being in the apartment rather than going out to beach.It was only in a walkable distance from the St.Ives beach and train station. So many eat outs are there in 1-2 mile distance.Only few things that we found not upto the mark was washing machine and kettle. It was a bit disappointing that we couldn’t wash our clothes for a week after i found out the mould in the lid rim washer and i don’t think kettle has had a descaling for ages . Please do rectify these and make sure these things are cleaned regularly. Otherwise it was the best stay i ever had!!! Totally recommend it !!!

    Dear Dr Salim, thank you so much for leaving such lovely Feedback following your recent stay at Anchors Rest and I’m so pleased to hear you and your family enjoyed the best stay you’ve ever had! I am sorry to hear about the washing machine and the kettle, I have passed your comments onto the Housekeeper that looks after Anchors Rest for their attention. Thank you again and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

    We have been in other frontline properties in this area and this one, with its uninterrupted view over Carbis Bay and St Ives harbour is way ahead of the competition. Indoor layout also complements the view. From the sofa, bedroom or patio, just amazing.

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

    Would love to return again. One very slight moan was being a coffee drinker there was no caffeteare or capsules for coffee machine to set us off . And no games .only electric mp 4 player not suitable for non tech folk.

    Dear Mr Strickland, Firstly, we would like to thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback for your recent stay at Anchors Rest.

    Carbis Bay Holidays were far better last year although direct contact with the Carbis Bay team in resort was extremely good as always.

  • ""Wow, what an amazing view this apartment has."

    The apartment had everything you needed, the king size bed was the comfiest I have ever slept in, I wanted to take it home with me. The binoculars to use were a lovely touch and were used frequently. The train station is a 5-minute walk and for 2 adults and 1 Child it cost £3.90 return to St Ives. The beach is a 5-minute walk away and you can hire wet suits for £10 a day and water activities are available. Loads of places to eat in St Ives, The Rum and Crab Shack was brilliant and The Harbour St Ives Fish restaurant was great value, fish and unlimited chips for £9.75, the fish was huge. There is a Tesco 10 mins drive away."

    ReviewJul 2019

  • ""We stayed in Sea View for the Easter weekend and were blessed with fabulous weather."

    The views from the apartment are fantastic; sitting on the patio drinking Camel Valley fizz - you cannot get much better overlooking St Ives and Carbis Bay. We have stayed in Carbis Bay many, many times but this was the first time on this side of the bay and really enjoyed it. The apartment is very nice. It has everything in the kitchen you would want. The bedrooms are very comfortable and having a superking bed is great. The bathrooms were very clean although I would have preferred a more powerful shower. There is no Sky and a pretty small tv; it didn't bother us on this occasion as we were not in the apartment to watch it but it would have been more important if the weather was rubbish and we stayed in more. Our housekeeper Hayley was very accommodating too - 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. Carbis Bay is truly a wonderful holiday location for those wanting to experience Cornwall's breathtaking coastline.
