  • "We had an excellent week at Harbour View."

    The apartment is more spacious than it appears in the listing photos and is well furnished. We were so lucky with the weather with glorious sunshine throughout the week. The view from the balcony is truly stunning, sunrise over the lighthouse and sunsets over St Ives Bay. The only improvements we would suggest would be better quality balcony chairs and sliding doors to the balcony.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave Feedback following your recent stay at Harbour View, we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed an excellent week, accompanied by glorious sunshine and that you were able to make the most of the stunning views from the apartment over the Bay. With regards to your comments relating to the balcony we have passed these on to the property owners for their consideration. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "The view from the balcony was stunning."

    We absolutely loved the location. Shame about the Faux grass on the sun terrace being waterlogged. The ice box in the fridge was iced up, but nothing to worry us when we were there. We had trouble trying to leave on time because we just didn't want to! Thank you for a very peaceful and enjoyable stay. Andrew and Launa.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the property and your stay! Sorry to hear about the couple of issues, please always feel free to contact the local office who will be able to assist during your stay.

  • "Overall the apartment was as described, and the views over Carbis Bay were stunning; however, the balcony really let the property down; looks tired and was dirty."

    This didn't spoil our holiday, but attention to cleanliness would give it a 5* rating. Staying for a week, it would have been nice to have had a change of towels, as we have had in other Sykes properties. We would definitely book again and look forward to a return trip. Thank you

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased that you loved the location and your stay. We are however, saddened to hear that you found an issue during your stay, we apologise. Your feedback has been taken on board, and reported to the necessary department however due to it being nesting season, we are finding as soon as balconies/patio areas are cleaned they become dirtied again, unfortunately something out of ours and the owners control. Thank you 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

  • "Where do I start, on arrival dirty microwave, cob webs hanging in the bathroom, rubbish in bathroom cabinet, oven dirty, food debris in kitchen cupboard, windows that you cannot see out of, and balcony not welcoming , just not clean."

    The fridge door doesn't close properly, the grids on the extraction hood are missing, it is also coming away from the wall. There was no hot water, constantly having to use boost button. The laminate flooring moves, gaps in it everywhere. Dust in bedroom on the mirror and glass tops. On a plus could be a beautiful apartment, good position, comfortable bed, sofas comfy. We did contact carbis holidays about microwave and cob webs with photos, also spoke to skyes about the hot water, all the other issues should be picked up on inspection, I'm on holiday at the end of the day.

    Thank you very much for your feedback, we are very sorry that you encountered these issues during your stay. The owner and the housekeeper have arranged for the property to be deep cleaned. The hot water is on a timer between certain times and the boost button is then used for between these hours if you need a shower, we are sorry if this caused you any inconvenience. The laminate flooring has been highlighted to the owner to address when the season dips and there is more time other than on a change over to look at sorting this in a more permanent way. Thank you for taking the time to let us know of these issues and we look forward to welcoming you back to the area. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Where to start."

    The Apartment was spotless when we arrived and the welcome package much appreciated as we arrived late in the evening. The views of Carbis Bay and St. Ive’s were truly stunning and we felt comfortable and secure throughout the stay. We were there for our Honeymoon and it felt like we were in a different country. The only negative was the Hot Water and we couldn’t quite work out how to make it hotter. Something I’m sure was in with the instructions but we lived with it anyway. We will definitely book this property again and recommend anyone looking for a romantic, peaceful break do the same.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful, positive feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you had such a lovely stay and picked Harbour View for your honeymoon! We are sorry to hear that you had some trouble with the hot water, should you have any queries during any stay please don’t hesitate to contact the local office and we will be able to advise. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

    The apartment was Spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need for your stay. The View from the balcony was stunning, and my husband loved the telescope for watching wildlife in the bay. The apartment was a 2 minute walk from Carbis bay train Station, which meant getting to and from St Ives was so easy and no need to use the car.

    Clean and spacious. The balcony area could do with freshening and cleaning, as it was slippery. The view is amazing, it is just the balcony looks tired and does not match the rest of the interior. The fridge is a little on the small size too.

We have passed your comment about the balcony on to the housekeeper and please be assured we will do our upmost to get this cleaned so that the stunning view can be enjoyed that little bit more from the balcony.

  • ""We greatly enjoyed our stay in Harbour View."

    The apartment is spacious with an excellent modern decor. It was immaculately presented for our arrival and everything functioned really well throughout our stay. The location worked perfectly for us - we could walk down to the beach in just a few minutes and access to the coast path in both directions was also easy and quick. And the view is to die for. The beach immediately below you and a perfect outlook right over and into St Ives harbour. We never tired of it. Covered parking was good too - no seagull poo to clean off the car! We loved this apartment and would readily return to it."

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.
