  • "I have stayed at Tate Reach many times over the years, and quite often in 'Whistler'."

    I was very disappointed this time at how run down the place looked from the front of the property. The front gate was so rusty you can hardly open or shut it. The front door is flaking away. On entering the 'Whistler' apartment you are hit with the stench of damp/mould. It was worse in the main bedroom, to a point when you breathed in the air at night you could smell and taste it. I was also disappointed that there was no welcome pack this time. Not even any complimentary toiletries in either of the two bathrooms. In the past there has always been a nice bottle of apple juice, biscuits, plus some treats for the dog etc. Its the small touches that make you feel welcome. Unfortunately I have already booked this apartment again for June so lets see how things improve.

  • "Fabulous location with only around 60 steps to climb from Porthmear Beach to the flat’s front door."

    Fabulous views of the harbour. The back door lock needs repairing (the only way of locking it is with a stiff rusty bolt), the patio fence trim is falling off and the rubbish & recycling bins have identical labels so you don’t know which is which (although the bin man said he’d sort that). But we’d definitely go back!

    Thank you for your feedback and comments following your stay at Whistler! We thank you for making us aware of the repairs needed and want to assure you that we will look into getting these fixed as soon as possible. We are thrilled to hear you liked the apartment and would like to return! With Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "The accuracy of the listing was very poor, booked as holiday was for 3 Adults and T1 diabetic son and mainly booked due to the 3 bathrooms stated on all holiday details, there was only 2 bathrooms with the second bathroom being a shower that was very small."

    The PlayStation had no working controllers or games, there were no DVDs to watch as stated. The place was clean but very run down, the ceiling was hanging off in the lounge, marks on walls and the fencing was hanging off in the courtyard outside. Very disappointed, complained and had so satisfactory response, they couldn’t be bothered.

    Peeling wallpaper and damp on several walls. Shower door off hinges. Towel rail doesn’t work. Whirlpool bath was dirty and spat out black mould when used. Location excellent. Outdoor area very nice.

  • "The lock on the kitchen door to the patio is temperamental."

    Disappointed that the designated car park space is so far away. Views and location for town access is excellent. Welcome pack was a nice surprise. A nice, comfortable, well appointed property.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to leave this feedback after your stay at Whistler, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry to hear you faced difficulties with the lock on the kitchen door. This has been passed onto our Property Management team to look into. Thank you for your comment regarding the parking for Whistler. We are pleased that the owner has managed to secure an allocated parking space (which is a much sort after feature for properties located in St Ives) for the property still only a short distance away.

    It has everything needed apart from something very small, salt and pepper. There is a cruite set but nothing in it! Before Covid the arrival time was much earlier and it would be great to see it reduced back to at least 3pm. Please pass on our thanks to the house keeper they do a great job and thank you from our dog who loves the fish dog biscuits.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the property and always find it spotlessly clean.

  • "Two physically fit seventy-seven year old ladies and a dog enjoyed the challenge of the two downhill paths beside Tate Reach gate: one leads to Porthmeor Beach and the other to the centre of St Ives."

    Views from the first floor apartment are magical and we were sad that the colder weather prevented us from making use of the rear terrace. We visited Marazion, Penzance and Newlyn and booked a Yoga class and a Life Drawing class at the St Ives School. The apartment was warm, comfortable, very clean (thank you Lesley) and we slept well. A leaky window was rectified immediately and without fuss. We returned home reluctantly. Aileen, Barbara and Honeybear

    Thank you very much for your lovely comments following your recent holiday at Whistler, we are so pleased to hear you all had a good time and that you enjoyed the great views from the apartment too. Sounds like you had a wonderful fun-filled holiday. We look forward to welcoming you both, and of course Honeybear as well, back again in the future. Best wishes, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team.

    Specially that stunning view from the accommodation as described. The location was actually perfect to do & see so many things. Nice and cozy 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, spacious balcony, washing machine, hungers and small but fitted kitchen, had everything we needed perfectly for a week stay. In fact I would have loved to stay a bit longer. I just would like to advise if you could sent us a PDF satellite Google map with arrows. It would be great help for the guests who’s coming outside of the area like us because it was a mission to find.. We’d love to come back again. Thank you so much.

  • "The flat was spotless and had lovely views."

    There were a few niggles that were irritating. In the main bedroom the bedside tables were not useable. There were wicker and around 4ft high and my elderly mother couldn’t even rest a cup on tea on it. The 2nd bedroom had an ensuite with a clear door. It looked as if there was a roller blind in place previously but had been removed. I resorted to hanging towels on coat hangers to block the view. Felt very uncomfortable using the toilet. The integrated fridge door had become detached from the outer door which again was irritating. The biggest niggle was the poorly maintained decked area. Several of the planks were warped and sticking up. All three of us without exception tripped as some point. The wall mounted baskets looked like they had been there for several years and were woody and unloved. There was no parasol for the table and with record heat it’s a small thing that would of helped greatly. As the apartment cost over £2000 for the week these are things you should be corrected. The hilly position would be of concern to some people, fine for us but should be noted if you are less mobile.

    Thank you for taking time to leave Feedback following your recent holiday at Whistler and we are so pleased that the apartment was spotless and that you enjoyed the wonderful views from the apartment over the Bay and Porthmeor. I’m very sorry to hear there were a few niggles during your stay, thank you for letting us know about these and I have passed them on to the relevant members of our team for their attention.

  • "Amazing property, even though we missed five of our nights due to COVID."

    Met with Lesley the housekeeper, who changed the fresh flowers as the ones put in had wilted in our absence. It was little touches like that, biscuits for us and even a small packet of treats for the dog that made the whole trip a great experience. Only thing I believe needs to be pointed out, are the great views you get from the property is due to the fact it’s on top of a steep hill. You really need to be fit & able bodied to get up the alleyways leading to the town & beaches. Thanks to all at Carbis Bay holidays

The property

This two-bedroom, first-floor apartment, Whistler, has excellent views over St Ives and is located in the Barnoon neighbourhood at Tate Reach.

This pet-friendly apartment sleeps four people plus an infant and welcomes a medium-sized dog, making it ideal for a family getaway to the coast.

The town centre, Tate St Ives, scenic railway routes, and the beautiful Porthmeor Beach are all within easy reach of Whistler.

With cast iron vintage radiators, lofty ceilings, a Victorian feature fireplace, and a picture bay window, this apartment on the first floor of this Victorian house has been painstakingly refurbished in keeping with its original features.

The bright and spacious open-plan sitting and dining space, which is bathed with natural light and furnished with exquisite historical pieces, offers a breath-taking view of St Ives; lie back and soak up the views or enjoy the entertainment on the Smart TV with DVD player and Sky.

A historic, drop-leaf dining table with seating for four has been precisely positioned within the living area bay window, providing visitors with a spectacular view while dining, and the table can also be unfolded just for two for a little romance.

The modern kitchen is well-equipped with oak cabinets, sleek black granite effect worktops, and a washer/dryer, providing everything you'll need for your getaway; for dining alfresco, it's conveniently located near the back terrace, which can be accessed via French doors that open out onto the far-reaching views.

There are two sea view bedrooms, one king-size and the other twin, both well-presented and with en-suites and plenty of storage space.

Clean up in the twin’s en-suite bathroom, which features an inviting beautiful P-shaped whirlpool bath or enjoy a quick shower in the king-size bedroom’s en-suite before spending time sitting at the wide bay window with views of the island and out to sea.

Hang wet swimming gear and wetsuits on the enclosed decking area's handy, retractable laundry line after a day at the beach, complete with outdoor seats to enjoy a refreshing drink in the sunshine or peacefully read a book.

The closest beach is Porthmeor, which is really magnificent; the long stretch of golden sand has been awarded a blue flag for its crystal-clear waters, which are ideal for catching a wave, and it also boasts a surf school and seasonal lifeguard service.

If you want to eat out, there is a beachside café directly on the beach, or try the Michelin-starred Porthminster Beach Café.

A plethora of cafés and eateries promoting fresh seafood and local vegetables are located around the picturesque harbour on another of the town's wonderful stretches of sand.

Explore the stores and galleries that line St Ives' cobblestone streets for a unique present or pay a visit to the Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, all of which are right on your doorstep!

Many of St Ives' major beaches are award-winning, so take your dog along the South West Coast Path to Porthkidney Beach, which is pet-friendly all year and has a long stretch of golden sand.

A terrific recommendation is to take the scenic railway back to your hotel; it is not only soothing, but also thrilling, since it connects the surrounding area, going beside the beaches and providing panoramic views of the sea.

The rides at Flambards in Helston, Camel Creek Adventure Park near Wadebridge, and feeding the animals at Paradise Park near Hayle will be a hit with the kids.

Take a family photo at Land's End's iconic signpost or see a performance at the Minack, a local open-air theatre perched on the edge of a Cornish cliff.

Alternatively, head to the craggy North Coast to Tintagel Castle, where King Arthur was created with the help of Merlin, or so the story goes, or walk out to the spectacular St Michael's Mount from Penzance at low tide, which is set on its own island.

Finally, don't miss the opportunity to walk above the trees in the tropical rainforest of the Eden Project near St Austell.

This holiday home is named after James Whistler, a great American artist who was inspired by the beauty of St Ives in 1884 and made it his home; we hope you'll soon learn why and fall in love with St Ives as well!
