  • "Lovely stay at Clearwater which is in a great location and just as described ."

    Only points to note are that although we easily found the dos and don’ts book about the property which was helpful we could not find the book for clients comments that was mentioned or any collections of leaflets and advice about local amenities walks restaurants etc which would have been helpful. I would also advise that the en suite shower seems to have a small plumbing issue that’s needs attending with water leaking where the shower hose joins the valve . Also the toilet in there stuck on fill once so maybe that needs some attention too. But a lovely flat with good facilities and highly recommended

  • "Overall we loved our stay."

    The location was great, the flat was great, parking superb, super comfy beds and quality bedding. The layout and the flooring made it very easy to keep clean. However we thought it needs a bit of a refresh. Paintwork is a bit tired, radiators dusty and rusty in places. Coffee machine leaks. Freezer needs defrosting. One glass was cracked and others chipped, some crockery was scratched and chipped and everything was rammed into the cupboards. Towels were poor quality. We think the property needs to up its game to warrant the cost of the rental. Just a few simple updates and upgrades and we’d be regular users happy to pay to stay here frequently.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are delighted to hear you loved your stay. We will be sure to pass your comments onto the owners for their consideration. We can confirm we have raised the cleanliness issues with the housekeeper who has confirmed they have looked into these and have actioned as necessary. We hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "This is the first time we have visited St Ives at this time of year, and it won't be the last, enjoyed the town being much quieter, but far from a Ghost Town, fortunate enough to catch some of the Sea Shanties on the Friday evening."

    Loved being back in this property, it is our favourite, but since Carbis Bay have become part of Sykes we have found their pricing policy based on the number of online views extremely frustrating. As when we have tried to make our summer bookings, we have viewed it at one price, then when we go to make a booking the price has shot up!! A set price as it used to be was much fairer way to treat loyal guests, we even had priority and a small discount for re-booking with Carbis Bay. The housekeeper as a point of contact was also a massive bonus, or being able to speak to Carbis Bay themselves, rather than a national helpline where you are in a queue , no one needs that on holiday.

    Nicer than Waves we stayed in last year, a better layout, TV signal dropped in an out but apart from that very nice, a good parking space too, we live St Ives and Galinas point but unfortunately won’t be back next year (shame) as the cost of the property has increased significantly for the dates we like in October

    Loved our stay. The only downsides for us were the room fig could do with a good clean. Toilet roll holders on the walls.Less things in the kitchen cupboards to give more spare space for food. These are just our preference and did not change our option looking to book for next year already

    Appliances were all in good condition with the exception of the travel cot which was in poor repair and caused some issues with 1st of all putting up, keep the sides up and then taking down, no mattresses. overall we would bring our own next time. The only other comment would be that the vacuum is in need of a new head as well as we tried to tidy up after the dogs prior to leaving the head it self wasn't the best. overall a great property with great access to St Ives and would look to return.

    Dear Georgina, we are pleased to hear that you had a lovely stay in Cornwall and enjoyed the property. Regarding the cot, due to manufacturer recommendations, we are unable to provide any additional mattress other the one that comes with the cot, as they advise this could be hazardous to the child using it. We hope you understand that legally we are unable to offer anything else. We are thrilled that you would like to return and look forward to welcoming you back.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Clearwater and would highly recommend."

    It was spotlessly clean and the little 'welcome pack' such as tea, coffee, milk, biscuits etc was a lovely surprise. Loved the high quality toiletries (White Company fan here!) and Lola our four legged friend was particularly impressed with her treats too. My only suggestion might be to explain in your listing that it is quite a steep walk into the town and beaches. It was not an issue for us at all as we are used to hill walking, our 16 year old pup struggled a bit towards the end of the week but as she is small we could carry her as needed. Less able guests or those with bigger, older dogs may find it difficult. However I must stress that this was no bother to us in any way and at least it worked off all the lovely food and wine we consumed!!! Mentioning the brand of coffee machine in the listing would also be useful as we would have taken some pods with us (Tassimo for those reading the reviews!) - there was only one type of pod available in local supermarkets. Thank you for such a lovely stay, we will be back!

    Thank you for your fantastic feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the property, your stay and that Lola liked her treats! Thank you for your comments, we are pleased to confirm that the coffee machine brand is already advertised on the website. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

    The location, facilities etc were great. We had a really pleasant week there. I took a point off for cleanliness. The windows had mould on them, there was litter under the sideboard and chair and there was opened items in the fridge. Really lovely property and I would book again as I understand that the cleaner can’t cover everything in a short space of time. The one thing for future bookings if you have dogs. Tregenna let off fireworks and whilst my dog doesn’t care about them they were very loud! I know Tregenna notify the residents of this. Maybe the owner or Sykes could notify staying guests. Please don’t let the mouldy windows deter others from booking. This was a really lovely place.

    00 in Dec! Also no lamp working in twin room. Tried putting heating on, but would not work. After phone many calls two different people arrived but was unable to fix it Saturday. Eventually a lovely guy came in Sunday evening and said he could only fix it for the evening only, as there was a problem with it. So throughout the week we had hot water, no heating, then when the heating was fixed, the next day we had no hot water.!!! In the family bathroom the bath was extremely slippery, as my wife is disabled, she could not get out of the bath. No rubber mat or hand rail to get out. She had to stay there until I came back. Which was frightening for her. It’s a fabulous property, wonderful location and was perfect on the ground floor as my wife has difficulty walking. It’s a shame these issues was not dealt with BEFORE our arrival, then it would of been a 5 star stay as expected and as your website promises.

    Dear Mrs Marner, Thank you very much for your comments, I am so sorry that you felt the cleanliness was not up to standard when you arrived, had you let us know whilst you were staying in the property we could have arranged for the issues to be sorted at a convenient time, had you wished. We have highlighted your concerns regarding the level of cleaning with the housekeeping team, and the issues have now been rectified. The season has been particularly long and heavy as almost all properties have been fully booked since the Government permitted travel and overnight stays following Covid-19 lockdown. This has meant that the gaps between bookings have been not been there when we would normally carry out maintenance checks, which are not feasible across a busy changeover window. As soon as possible the properties will be assessed during the gaps to ensure the standard both our guests and owners are used to experiencing are maintained, but in this instance, the Owners recently stayed in the property and did their own assessment with housekeeping, as a result of which the issues were rectified. The Owners have said, that if you are returning to the property, then they will agree a reduction of £100 on the next rental. Thanks you for your valued feedback. If you have any further concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us, Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner
