  • "Had a great time in a lovely apartment."

    Brill location to everything but far enough away so we had a 10 minute walk in to town each day which we like. Only minor negative but no surprise was a Grass Garden would have been better for our Dogs.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to hear you had a great holiday. Clearwater is a lovely apartment in a great location. We hope to welcome you back soon! Kind Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Clearwater was lovely!"

    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.

  • "We really enjoyed our time at Clearwater."

    The location was great, so close to the beaches & shops having off road parking in st ives is a massive bonus too! The property itself was clean & comfortable. However, the heating was very temperamental, we never complained about it because it was overly cold and we just put an extra layer on. Also, the pillows are a little hard, but that’s personal preference! Overall we throughly enjoyed our stay!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Please do inform us if you experience any problems with heating, our maintenance team are available to help fix any issues. Kindest Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Patio furniture and outside patio were not cleaned."

    Table and chairs not been cleaned for along time. Lamp in bedroom did not work, and no extra bulbs to change. Glass storage shelves were not clean. Could have done with more hot water. Standard of cleaning is what is letting this apartment down on our occasion. Other than that we had an enjoyable stay.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that some areas were not up to our usual standard for you, we are investigating these issues. Your comments have been taken on board and reported to the necessary departments to ensure these things get actioned. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back in the near future.

    Only issue was the central heating & hot water not working but Carbis Bay Holidays did their absolute best to sort it out. Would have been a 5 otherwise.

  • "Sadly this lovely property’s heating was not on, on our arrival at 18."

    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.

    This is obviously going to impact our future holidays in st Ives which is a shame as we have been very happy to use Carbis bay holidays for our breaks in st Ives.

  • "Cleanliness not up to standard as detailed in separate correspondence."

    Several items/areas not cleaned and very dusty. Several lamps not working. Shower mouldy and in need of regrouting. Window frames mouldy and dirty. Mould on wall in master bedroom.

    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

    The apartment was very clean and well equipped and we made best use of the outside enclosed patio in the brilliant weather. Only Niggles are the Main bed needs a new mattress and the current regime that you have to be out by 9:00 am and can’t arrive until 17:00 and as parking in st ives is virtually impossible there is no point in arriving early. Overall an enjoyable holiday and I would recommend.

  • ""We had a great week in St Ives."

    Clearwater is in a fab location and is a comfortable, stylish apartment. We enjoyed coffee and cakes and great service at Pels which is especially good for me as they do a good range of gluten free products, even crepes, Blas is great for a burger and we had a very sociable night in there, for steak I don't think you can beat the Fire House, and for a drink and a view The Hub. For something a bit different The Bean Inn at Carbis bay had a good choice of dishes." C. Rawlings
