  • "We had a brilliant weeks stay at belyars penthouse."

    The views across the sea are amazing in a morning where you can enjoy a coffee on the balcony. The apartment is clean and spacious, however it can be quiet warm during the day so the fans supplied in the apartment are needed. It comes equipped with all the facilities needed and appliances are easy to use should you want to cook whilst on holiday. The location is good, about a 10 minute walk to the town centre, however the hill the apartment is situated on is quite steep so may not be suitable for people with mobility issues, but buses run regularly and stop outside the building. Overall we have had a brilliant holiday and would definitely book this penthouse again. We would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in St.Ives.

  • "An excellent stay in a high quality apartment."

    Great views of the sea and pretty easy to walk into St Ives (unless you have mobility issues). Nice size bedrooms and very good bathrooms for the size of property. Very comfortable lounge, with all the mod cons. The balcony was excellent. My only worry would be with possible parking problems when all flats were being rented - unclear where you would then need to park and whether it would cost you.

    Dear Mr Chandler, Thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased to hear your enjoyed your stay and the apartment. Kind Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "This is a well appointed, impressive, contemporay styled property with a stunning view over St Ives Bay."

    We enjoyed a comfortable stay. Where we did identifiy and report concerns they were quickly and effectively dealt with by Cameron and Jess at Carbis Bay Holidays. In order to raise standards further we would suggest that the stairway alarms are tested regularly by the property management company These matters are apparently not the responsibility of the letting agent. Despite this, CBH acted decisively to resolve the issue. Secondly,.we would recommned that the outside of the sea facing windows are cleaned before each tenancy. (It is understood that seagulls are local nusiance to many visitors!)

    Dear Mrs Whitell, Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and that your concerns were dealt with quickly by the team. Kindest Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week in the apartment ."

    We found it to be really comfortable & fulfilled our expectations. No expense spared . We struggled with the key safe ? There are quite a few & it’s not immediately obvious which is for the apartment , S5 is on a couple of key boxes . The mark down on cleanliness was for the bottom of the coffee table was dirty , I cleaned it when I was wiping down before leaving & there was a lot of dust , cobwebs on the window structures . I would happily book this property again , just for that view .

    Dear Hilary, thank you for your Feedback following your recent stay at Belyars Penthouse and I am pleased to hear you found the property comfortable and it fulfilled your expectations, I also agree that it has great views across the Bay. I am sorry to hear you struggled with the key safe, we have arranged for our maintenance team to attend and relabel these. May I also apologise that the apartment did not reach our usual high standard of cleanliness, we have brought your comments to the attention of the Housekeeper that looks after Belyars Penthouse. We do hope to be able to welcome you back in the future, so you can once again enjoy the view! Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "There were a number of problems: 1) We could not locate the key safe on arrival because it was not labelled correctly."

    We had to get assistance from the local office. The person who came out to help could also not locate the key safe until he did so by a process of elimination (there were around 10 key safes). 2) Body hair on bathroom floor, food in cutlery drawers. 3) No parking permit provided - we have been fined £60 for parking at the accommodation. 4) No response to emails until the Thursday morning. An offer to clean the flat on Thursday came too late - we had already been there since the Saturday. 5) No response to request that the cost of parking in a public car park is covered in the absence of the parking permit. 6) No response to emails about parking permit. 7) No response from text message to housekeeper.

  • "We thought the apartment was very nice, tastefully and comfortably furnished, the kitchen was very well equipped and the view was fantastic."

    Just a few minor things we would like to point out. In the main bedroom, one of the bedside lamps did not work. In the second bedroom, one of the drawers was not clean and the toilet in the main bathroom was dusty. Also, in the second bedroom, there is a lack of shelf storage, as one of the cupboards is locked. The majority of the cars that were parked at the apartment were relatively large and we thought that most of the parking spots were really tight. Whilst we generally strip the beds when we leave a holiday apartment, we did not like the fact that we were required to do it. We also did not like the very late check-in time and the very early check-out time. Still, we had a great time and would definitely recommend the apartment.

    Dear Monika, Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. Lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay at Belyars Penthouse. We will pass on the points you have raised to our property team and action accordingly. When our guests bring issues to our attention, we endeavor to resolve as soon as possible. Although we do understand your point about the gathering the linen before you check out, with COVID_19 still being quite prominent in our area, we are continuing to protect our housekeepers as much as possible by asking for linen to be bagged up on departure. We hope that at some point, we can go back to the normal we used to know, but at the moment we are still very much trying to protect all parties involved, including our guests with the slightly later check in and earlier check out, again we hope to review this shortly. We hope to invite you back in the near future, Kind Regards, Owner Relations Team, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • "Lovely apartment - clean, modern, spacious enough for a family of 4 and an amazing view."

    Short walk into town/beach - the view from the apartment makes the walk back up the hill worth it! Nice that blankets are provided for use on the balcony if it gets a bit chilly. Could do with a few more plates/bowls etc but this is a minor thing. If you are thinking about staying here - just book it - you will have a great time.

    Dear Vicky, Thank you for taking the time to submit you feedback. Its lovely to hear you enjoyed the apartment, and we totally agree, if we didn't have the mixed terrain, the views wouldn't be there, so there is a perk, you are correct, and sounds like the view was enjoyable snuggled up on the balcony. We will pass on your feedback regarding the plates and bowls to the owner, thank you. We hope to invite you back in the near future, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

  • "This is a beautiful apartment that has been furnished to a very high standard."

    The beds are comfortable, the bedding and towels of a really good quality and is equipped with everything you could need. My only criticism would be that the washer dryer is exceptionally noisy so you can’t hear the TV when it’s on and the the dryer really doesn’t dry the clothes at all. It would be useful to have a larger airier for 4 people as drying the towels was almost impossible as it would only fit 1 on. It’s in a great location and about a 15 minute stroll to town however the walk is down a very steep hill and so would not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues. We would definitely stay here again but maybe bring our own towels too so we didn’t have to try and wash/dry those there after a day on the beach.

    Hi Lara, Thank you for your Feedback and lovely comments following your recent stay at Belyars Penthouse. I have forwarded your comments regarding the dryer and airer to our Property Management Department for their attention. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future.

  • "We Would highly recommend this property."

    We arrived early after a long journey and I called the office to see if the apartment was ready before the 5pm time! We were able to get access a couple of hours earlier and the apartment didn’t disappoint! The apartment was amazing, very spacious, clean great location and perfect for our family of four! Great location, only 7 mins from the centre of St Ives and beach. The only thing that I would suggest is to make sure that you book all your restaurants well in advance as St Ives was super busy! We booked cellar bistro and the Firehouse restaurants that were both amazing! Can’t wait to come back to St Ives …

  • "This apartment has very good views over the harbour the inside is decorated and presented immaculately."

    The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and the complimentary tea, coffee, soft drinks and sweets were a nice touch the house keeper who greeted us who was a very helpful nice lady also brought us some milk to get us started until we had chance to go shopping. Our daughter found the twin room very comfortable and was pleased she had the main bathroom to herself as our double had an ensuite. Lots of big fluffy towels provided and the beds and all linen were very comfortable. The apartment is just a ten minute walk into town but it is on quite a steep hill but this is worth the extra effort for the lovely view. We were highly impressed and would definitely book again.
