  • "Wow, such a great property in a beautiful location."

    There is a steep hill down to the beach and back up to the property but well worth it. Property had everything we needed and more. We stayed for a week and didnt want to leave! Carbis Bay is stunning and you can catch a train into St. Ives that only takes a few minutes which the kids loved doing. I would highly recommend.

  • "Absolutely beautiful property fully equipped."

    Very comfortable and great location. Only would suggest you let people know there are children's plastic cups and plates; I brought lots with me unnecessarily. But not really a negative - just properties not usually so well equipped!

    The house is lovely, spacious, very clean & very comfortable, beds that comfy were buying the same mattresses for our beds. Everything we needed was provided for our stay. The hamper was really nice too, we felt right at home and after our 8 hour journey we were so happy to be greated by such a wonderful place. The garden is really nice. We spent our days during the heatwave enjoying the beaches and exploring Cornwall. We will most definitely be back to stay again , it was paradise.

    In a good location, close to St Ives and close to the A30 for getting out and about in other parts of Cornwall. In a nice quiet road, the only noise we heard was the recycling collection at about 7.00am one morning. We’ve already booked again for next year!

  • "Fantastic holiday house, airy and spacious whilst still feeling comfortable and homely."

    Lovely hosts, and luxury welcome pack. Fast wifi and full Smart TV was a welcome change from our usual holiday house experience! Great location, just 10mins to beach, 5 mins to train stop into St Ives, great restaurants within 5-10 mins. The beach is stunning and so clean with good facilities. Wide variety of activities and attractions within easy reach….we had a paddle board lesson with the Ocean Sports Centre down on the beach which was a lot of fun, saw a show at the Minack Theatre which was a beautiful setting, lamp lit story / ghost walk with Shanty Baba in St Ives, Tate St Ives. I can highly recommend both the holiday house and location :)

  • "Chy Kerris is a lovely house."

    It is well equipped and very comfortable. It is well situated for the beach and a short drive distance away from lots of different tourist attractions. Overall, the accommodation was satisfactory. As with most places, you can always find something that could do with doing. The bathroom seals need replacing soon, and some of the shower lights had mold in them so could do with a good clean. There was dust on the lampshades and hair still on the bedroom carpet. The decking area was full of sand/stones and there were some cobwebs on the windows. Therefore, I did feel the accommodation was cleaner once I had left. I would definitely recommend this property to stay in as it was well equipped, had a light and airy feel, and the beds were extremely comfortable. Not more you could ask for really.

    It’s very well furnished, the kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable, it’s very clean and the owner is very welcoming and helpful. The location is ideal, close to Carbis Bay beach and the station where you can take a train into the centre of St Ives (better not to drive!). We visited several major attractions, all a relatively short drive from Chy Kerris, such as Lands End, Lost Gardens of Helligan, Minack Theatre, Pendennis Castle and of course St Ives.

  • "A beautiful and really well located house."

    A short walk to the lovely beach with excellent facilities (bar, snack bar and water sports hire) and the station for the train to St Ives. (Very cheap, quick and lovely views, with the added benefit of avoiding the nightmare of parking). The house itself was even better than expected - the outside space and seating areas are much better than in the photos - benches since replaced with chairs and there is also a rattan lounge set with cushions. Also a great covered space to dry washing and hang wetsuits etc. Kitchen very well stocked and welcome hamper was a lovely touch. We would be tempted to book again but would definitely recommend for both internal space, facilities and location.

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.
