  • "We really enjoyed our holiday and the beautiful views from the balcony."

    The apartment was well appointed and in a very convenient location for the train station and beach, we were able to leave the car at home for most of the week. There was an issue with the washing machine whilst we were there, but it was dealt with very swiftly (the same day we reported it), at no inconvenience to us. We'd stay again!

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you had such a lovely stay and that your issue was dealt with hastily. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Second consecutive year staying at Glas Mor."

    Lovely quiet spacious apartment, location and views. Housekeeping standard not as good this year and sofa becoming grubby and well used. Shocked to see that booking the same week next year would be £3050 - over double the price we paid this year! Have booked apartments with Carbis Bay Holidays each year since 2017 but will not be booking again with Sykes at such an inflated price.

    Dear Alison, Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. Great to hear that you returned to Glas Mor for 2021. We will pass the points you raised about the cleanliness of the property to the housekeeper, please be assure that the issues you identify, we endeavor to rectify as quickly as possible. Firstly, we would like to share that we are still the same team in the local office, supported by the same housekeepers. There has been a huge demand for stay-cations this year and for 2022, which has increased prices in line with other letting agencies throughout the country. Prices also vary in line with the way school holiday weeks fall, and are also subject to annual price reviews. We would like to reassure you that the prices for 2022 are all monitored very closely and priced with seasonal variance and demand to establish the right balance. We look forward to inviting you back next year. Kind Regards, Owner Relations Team, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

    The toilet in the main bathroom seemed loose and we had to report an issue with the fridge shelves. We have booked with Carbis Bay Holidays on many occasions and like the fact that it was run locally however we have concerns that it will lose that personal touch now it is part of Sykes.

    Whilst he was asleep, we had our dinner on the balcony overlooking the incredible views, we felt relaxed and at home very quickly as did our son. "

  • ""Excellent apartment on the third floor with a large slide opening double glazed window in both lounge and bedroom giving the perfect sea view."

    The long balcony is accessible from both double bedroom and lounge. Two decent sized double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and flat screen televisions with perfect reception. Very comfortable beds. Nice big private gated carpark with designated parking spaces. The apartment is reached via stairway or lift. On a separate note, the lift was not working properly from midweek onwards. Although inconvenient, it did not spoil our enjoyment."

  • ""We had a fabulous week at Glas Mor."

    From the moment of our arrival (early) when we encountered your representative (Claire?) who was putting the finishing touches to the apartment for our stay, to our departure everything went according to plan and we felt completely relaxed and stress-free. The apartment was spotlessly clean on on arrival and beautifully appointed. All appliances worked as they should and all the facilities were first-rate. The location, with its proximity to St Ives and its ease of access via the St Erth Express, was ideal for our requirements and the unobstructed views of Carbis Bay defy my descriptive powers."

  • ""It was our second time at Glas Mor and the apartment was a lovely as we remembered it."

    Really perfect. It was our first holiday since my son had a stroke last May which was a real milestone and the accommodation was great for him. He currently uses a wheelchair much of the time but can walk a few steps with a stick and so being somewhere accessible was a priority. The apartment is beautifully appointed and the lovely welcoming provisions were perfect - we particularly appreciated the champagne!" Janine Valentine

    ! We have enjoyed it so much that I have rebooked for next year within an hour of getting home on Friday! We are so pleased we decided upon coming to St Ives and rediscovered all this beautiful resort has to offer and will be coming back for many years to come. We have travelled the world and I must say the apartment was one of the very best we have ever stayed in with all the high standards of fittings etc and the stunning sea views, Congratulations to the owners for ensuring everything is in place for all your needs. We just wanted to stay a little longer! We think all the little extra things in the apartment were very nice to have i.e the books, cd’s and films were great, the beach train was great also to access when the walking became a bit too much.” L.Babar

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.
