  • "Washing machine door not fitting well."

    Some of the light switch caps were not secure and kept falling off. ( lounge and master bedroom ) Only small things, but could end up being a problem. Certainly didn’t spoil our holiday in this beautiful apartment We have holidayed at the Peninsula apartments for over 10 years. Hayley and her housekeeping team always keep the apartments spotless. A big shout out to them. Hope to get back very soon.

    Thank you very much for your feedback and helpful comments. We will act accordingly! Really glad you enjoyed your stay though. Kind Regards, The Property Owners Property Owner

  • "We love this apartment and have stayed a few times before ."

    It’s hard to beat the lovely location and views. However usually when we arrive we get lovely welcome pack with local apple juice a cream tea etc but we didn’t get one this time which was disappointing because we always looked forward to it after a long journey .Also there was no tea or coffee provided this year so we couldn’t even make ourselves a drink when we got there . Also there was no soap in the bathrooms . Have you stopped leaving welcome packs and tea and coffee etc now ?

    We do hope you enjoyed your latest stay at The Boats and thank you so much for taking the time to leave your Feedback comment. We are so pleased to hear you love the apartment and we agree that it’s in a great location within St Ives as well as having wonderful views across Porthminster Beach. We are very sorry to hear some of the items of your Welcome Pack were missing, we have contacted the Housekeeper that looks after The Boats regarding this. With regards to the complimentary Cream Tea, unfortunately as the small local bakery that used to supply these has closed we were forced to find and alternative and I am pleased to advise that after much research and tastings we now offer local Cornish Fairings for our guests to enjoy during their stay. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again soon. Best wishes The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Lovely location but the apartment should not be listed as ‘luxury’."

    It is jaded in parts and needing modernisation. For example - bathrooms are looking old with grout and shower door seals unclean, kitchen appliances not great, these are cheap enough to replace, and walls had poor touch up marks everywhere. Outside table was smeared and would not want to eat on it without a thorough clean. Bin in kitchen is horrible, nobody wants to touch a bin. Blinds were very dusty. Perhaps consider the cleaning contract. Would come back if apartment had an overhaul.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are saddened to hear that you found a few needing improvement during your stay. Thank you for your constructive comments, these have been taken on board and are already beginning to be actioned. We would always like the opportunity to rectify any points so please contact one of the local team on 01736 630015 and we will be able to assist straight away.

  • "Flat was a bit cold when we first arrived and took a couple of days to warm up."

    Seemed like the boiler was turned down as water was just about hot enough- not something we had experienced when we have visited at this time of year previously. Increasing the temperature on the hall thermostat made no noticeable difference.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are saddened to hear that you struggled with this. If you have any issues like this during your stay please contact the local office on 01736 630015, and one of the local team will be able to assist you straight away. We hope to get the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "I would advise future renters not to make the mistake I made by booking 2 consecutive weeks."

    We vacated the property to allow a full clean for the second week including emptying all the waste bins as requested. On our return the bed linens had been replaced plus bathroom towels but no sign of any hoovering, NO toilet rolls, NO soap or shampoo, NO dishwashing tablets. NO washing up liquid

    Thank you for your feedback. We apologise if the two consecutive bookings have caused any confusion and inconvenience. With consecutive bookings we usually advise that guests do not need to check out and check back in as we make the housekeeping team aware of this. To confirm this, we called yourselves on 11.11.22 to say it would just be a linen change and not a full clean. Because the property is self-catering, after the first welcome items the rest must be supplied by the guests. If you have any questions on this matter, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly. Thank you again. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay in St Ives at The Boats."

    The location of the apartment is perfect. It has a fantastic balcony, great for sitting out with your morning coffee. The apartment was extremely clean and all of the furnishings were excellent quality. The use of the next door’s hotel’s facilities is also an added bonus. I would not hesitate in recommending The Boats.

    Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the trouble to write them. They are very much appreciated and really glad that you had a great holiday (not that I think you can ever have a bad holiday in St.Ives!) Property Owner

Offering a complimentary spa membership at The Peninsula Apartments, this beautiful apartment offers panoramic views of Porthminster Beach and St Ives Bay, plus easy access to the beach and attractions, a lovely spot for couples, friends and families alike!

You'll find an underground, designated parking space for an easy arrival in this popular seaside town, with stair or lift access up to the second floor where a contemporary, coastal-themed interior awaits.

Hang your coats in the hallway with solid walnut flooring where a handy utility has a washer/dryer for sorting sandy towels ready for tomorrow!

Be immediately wowed by the panoramic sea views from the open-plan living area where double sliding doors lead onto the private, decked balcony with seating; a wonderful spot to sip a glass of wine at sunset.

The owner has provided telescopic binoculars and a tripod to look out for dolphins and seals right from your holiday home!

Alternatively, sink into the cream leather sofas where a 40" Samsung LCD TV with Sky TV provides evening entertainment, along with a selection of books and board games.

Play your favourite songs on the Sony Music System with Bluetooth while you prepare home-cooked dinners in the readily equipped, glossy kitchen area; facilities include an integrated Neff oven/grill, ceramic hob, dishwasher, blenders, and a Bosch coffee machine.

A stylish circular table with four walnut dining chairs offers plenty of space for four guests to savour their supper!

When it's time to retire, freshen up in the spacious family bathroom and choose between two luxury bedrooms; the super-king-size with Egyptian cotton sheets, bedside lamps and a vanity mirror has gorgeous sea views with access to the balcony, and its own private en-suite bathroom.

The second king-size bedroom has Egyptian cotton sheets, bedside lamps, and a Freeview TV to watch your favourite shows among the cushions.

If you can tear yourself away, the Bohemian town of St Ives has plenty on offer from watersports, coastal hikes and cycling, to Tate St Ives, Barbara Hepworth Museum, and The Leach Pottery; you'll be spoilt for choice with cafes, restaurants and pubs!

The bustling town of Penzance is a short drive away with a bustling promenade to stroll along with ice cream in hand, a variety of boat trips from the harbour, and Penlee House Gallery & Museum.

Be sure to visit the impressive St Michael's Mount in Marazion, where a medieval castle and sub-tropical gardens sit just across from the sandy beach.

For more spectacular, sandy beaches to surf and sunbathe, head to the likes of Hayle and Gwithian, where the cliffs of the National Trust's Godrevy offer unforgettable hikes.

However you wish to spend your holiday, The Boats is a luxury apartment in St Ives you'll love returning to again and again.
