  • "We had a great stay."

    The apartment is modern and comfortable with everything you need. Our stay was the second week in January which was a cold but bright week and the apartment was always cosy. The apartment is up hill but just a 10 minute walk from main shopping and pubs. On arrival there was a welcome pack which was a nice touch. This is the first time I can honestly say that the advertising photos are spot on. Thanks for a great break!

    Thank you for your great feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your winter stay, and hope you will choose Puffins again! Property Owner

  • "We so enjoyed our stay, the apartment had everything, parking was a real bonus and we appreciated all the Xmas goodies left for us."

    Big advantage is that everything is close, the Minak theatre, Penzance, Porthleven and Falmouth all super places to visit. In St Ives we eat at Host, Bier Huis,and Porthminster cafe and Kitchen super food and atmosphere. We managed the annual Boxing day run into the sea along with at least 600 others.

    Thank you for this lovely feedback. So glad you enjoyed your Christmas stay. Impressive that you did the Boxing Day Run! Property Owner

  • "Very attractive apartment."

    Amazingly well-equipped kitchen, comfortable sitting area and comfortable bed. Thoughtful touches by owner – great selection of DVDs! Good views of the sea over the garden and tree tops – well placed for weather watching – everything from rainbows to lightning! Quiet and well located for walking into the town, coastal walks or driving out to the surrounding area. We really enjoyed our stay. We have mentioned a couple of practical issues to the agents but they did not spoil our visit. Note to agents: The key/lock to the main door of the building is a real struggle to use – it can take several minutes to open the door – the door is often left open by residents because of this. The kitchen tap is very stiff to use and the whole tap unit swivels as you attempt to turn on the tap. The basin in the main bathroom is very slow to empty.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the property and your stay! Thank you also for your constructive points that have been passed onto the revalent department to look into. Thank you so much again for your comments and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kinds Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "Great stay."

    Apartment met all needs and was clean and well equipped. Only slight concern we had were the spaces between decking boards on the balcony that could be dangerous for users eg hot liquid or sharp object from above.

    Dear Mrs McNab, thank you for taking the time to leave Feedback following your recent holiday at Puffins and we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed a great stay. Thank you for advising us of your concerns regarding the decking boards on the balcony, your concerns have not previously been raised by any guests in the time the property has been a holiday let, but we will pass these to the Management Company that look after the apartments for their attention. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Something to keep the balcony door open would have been helpful."

    Otherwise, we had a fantastic stay in an excellent apartment. The welcome bag and flowers were a lovely touch and made us feel welcome. Would definitely stay again.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay and holiday in the area, and we would love to welcome you again! I will pop a heavy door stop in when I'm next in the apartment. Property Owner
