  • "Lovely property - very clean & brilliant position for train station to get to St Ives or St Erth."

    Great outdoor space with plenty of room. Property well equipped for holiday & extremely comfortable bed. Welcome pack was a lovely surprise. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was the property description of frosted glass in the bedroom window that looks onto owners garden. This was clear glass which did not give as much privacy. However, we enjoyed our stay immensely & have already booked to return.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the property and your stay! We apologise that there was no frosted glass as thought, this has now been amended so it is not advertised. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Kinds Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Lovely property, very comfortable & clean."

    Close to shops & the train station, which we used often. The bag with treats in was a lovely touch & milk in the fridge was a big plus too. After a long day travelling, was able to get a very welcome drink. Placed in such a nice area too.

  • "Fantastic holiday apartment as described."

    Great base for exploring around Cornwall Short walk to train station and 3 minutes ride into St Ives saves all the trouble in parking. Would highly recommend Sea Holly for a holiday and our looking to go again ourselves. Extremely pleasant family who own the property who can’t do enough to help if required.

    Thank you for taking your time to leave your feedback it’s much appreciated, we are pleased to hear you thought the apartment was fantastic and we hope we get the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

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.
