  • "We had a wonderful stay at Santuary Bay."

    The property was very clean, comfortable and well equipt. Lots of information about how to use appliances and also things to do. Proper home from home. Ideally situated for exploring surrounding areas. We went as far as lands end and down to Lizard Point. Could have stayed another week with still plenty explore. Thank you very much for the use of this property. We would definitely reccommend it.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and stay at Sanctuary Bay."

    Had a problem with the front door lock as we struggled to unlock it from the outside when full lock was put on and were locked out for a while. Carbis Bay Holidays staff were quick to respond on the emergency number out of hours which was much appreciated. The door was off the meter box and on the floor outside the property. A very nice, well equipped, dog friendly house and we would definately stay there again. Our second time using Carbis Bay Holidays and would not hesitate to do so in the future.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your holiday. We are sorry you experienced an issue with the door, but pleased to know it was resolved ASAP. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Best Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "The accommodation was excellent, very comfortable with good quality furnishings."

    However, we stayed for 2 weeks but didn’t receive any clean linen after the first week. We didn’t expect the housekeeper to enter the property as we would have changed the beds ourselves. The G7 summit restricted our movements drastically during our first week, which Carbis Bay Holidays only informed us about 3 days before we arrived. I have just checked the website to look at booking the same 2 weeks next year and am absolutely astounded to see that the price has increased by approximately £800!!! How can you possibly justify such an increase? In my opinion you appear to be taking advantage of people not being able to travel abroad due to the current COVID restrictions.

    Dear Claire, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you weren't contacted by your housekeeper regarding your linen change mid-stay. We apologies for the disruption the G7c caused to your stay, unfortunately due to the event being a matter of national security, the detailed plans of road closures, security forces and restrictions were not made public until a couple of weeks before your stay. We have taken your points on board regarding the pricing and will have a discussion as to how to move forward and hit the right balance. Kind Regards, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • "Lovely two weeks."

    Recommend the coastal path walk into St. Ives, At a moderate pace 30 minutes. If you don't like climbing hills catch the train back! Recommend stop at Porthminster Gin and cocktail bar on the way! Also recommend Philps for pasties and cakes and Chilli Chinese both in Hayle for the best takeaways. Haines Family

  • "Enjoyed a fantastic holiday in this lovely house."

    The beach is always a dream. Chilli Chinese highly recommended. Due to the virus, we decided not to use the train or visit the town. The beach and coast walks were enough. Our second year here and we are booking again for next year. Sarah, Charlie, Mai and Buster the collie.

  • ""Sanctuary Bay is a well-equipped and comfortable cottage - one of the best we have stayed in (and we have stayed in a lot!"

    ) the facilities are excellent and the quality of the fittings and furniture very high. The convenience for us was the station a short walk away (we could leave the car for days without needing it!) and 5 minutes later be in St Ives. Recommend this property without reservation."

  • ""'Sanctuary Bay' in Carbis Bay was ideal for us."

    The property was clean, tidy, well equipped and in excellent condition throughout with two good sized bedrooms, a large lounge/kitchen diner area, car parking space for two cars and dog friendly - it was like being 'home from home'. The beautiful beach was within walking distance and the coastal path had some stunning views! We will certainly be returning again next year!"

  • ""We had a lovely week in Sanctuary Bay."

    The property was clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The absence of a hair drier was rectified within 30 minutes of contacting Jo, the housekeeper - thank you. Our Westies enjoyed the beautiful walk along the coast path to Porthkidney beach and we all spent some stunning days relaxing in the sun on this extensive stretch of sand. We also loved the west facing bedroom balcony where we sat most evenings with a glass of wine, watching the sunset. Thank you to CBH. This was another easy, relaxing holiday."

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.
