  • "This apartment is totally gorgeous!"

    ! When we walked in for the first time it was cleaned to a very high standard and smelled so fresh. It is equipped for all your needs especially the kitchen . Plenty of cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. A ninja appliance for cooking and everything you could possibly need. We had mixed weather and it was lovely to sit out on the decking undercover and take in the beautiful view when we couldn't get out. It is one of the best properties we have ever stayed in in St Ives and we've been coming here for 22 years! Thankyou for a lovely stay. We had to use the carpark near the sports centre to park our campervan for the week as you would only be able to fit a small car in the parking space provided BUT it does give dimensions on the description we just didn't read it properly, believe me it was worth paying for the extra parking to stay here!

  • "Very nice apartment, clean, newly decorated, great location for the beach and the town."

    Spa facilities included at the main hotel. Main bedroom light dimmer switch didn’t work but other than this the apartment was well maintained. Would definitely stay there again.

  • "This was a beautiful property."

    The view was heavenly. The home from home kitchen had all the equiment needed to cook/ bake and serve beautiful meals. The spa was a welcome bonus. Only issue but this did not spoil our holiday. Only one spa pass had been left by the previous occupants and we had to wait several days for the local office to drop off fresh passes as the number was unreadable on the only pass available. We would happily visit the apartment again. Thank you Sykes for another 5 star holiday home!

    Thank you for taking your time to leave feedback it’s much appreciated, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed the views from the property and thought the kitchen was well equipped. We are glad you enjoyed the spa and we do apologies for the delay in receiving the spa pass. We hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future.

  • "The apartment was recommended by a friend who has stayed numerous times in different apartments."

    Easy to find once I had reread the instructions provided. Struggled with the key safe ( Finding and initial opening ) but when I had reread the instructions they made perfect sense. Struggled to park in the allocated parking space but that was partly due to the fact that it was our daughter's car and I had not driven it before. Guide provided was easy to follow and described each topic perfectly but it took a while to find the second set of keys. Useful information on places to visit and we caught the bus to most of the places we visited. Apartment was clean and tidy and although we didn't eat often at the apartment the kitchen area contained everything required. Beds were very comfortable, bathroom spacious and the apartment kept warm without the need to use the heating. Sunbeds and chair very comfortable and good views from the garden. Still no hoover but didn't know if this was deliberate so that flooring did not become marked. Overall a very enjoyable stay and our Swiss friend really enjoyed her stay. Within easy walking distance of St. Ives and lift saved carrying cases down stairs.

    Thank you for taking your time to leave feedback, it’s much appreciated. We are glad to hear you had an enjoyable stay at the apartment and found the instructions provided easy to follow. Thank you for making us aware about the hoover, we will be sure to follow this up with the housekeepers to ensure the hoover is left out for guest use. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "It's an absolutely fantastic apartment!"

    ! The views are stunning and and it was so nice to have some outdoor space. The beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept in! It's a short walk to the town and beach. Having the hotel next door was really handy for a meal in the restaurant or on the pizza terrace. Would highly recommend this apartment and will definitely be returning.

  • "The apartment is spacious and at an excellent location for Porthminster beach, and St Ives centre."

    The view is as outstanding as advertised. Well equipped and spacious kitchen with handy breakfast bar as well as a dining table. The living area is nicely decorated, having Sky is a nice touch. However, there is a distinct lack of sofa seating for a family of 4. There is one two seater and although there is an occasional chair it isn’t comfortable enough to sit on for any sustained period - we had some rainy days so utilising the outdoor seating wasn’t always an option. The bathrooms were fine although there were a few cleanliness issues (for someone with admittedly high standards in this area), we did find mould in a few areas. The master bedroom has a comfortable bed but the pillows are very soft so would recommend taking your own if you are fussy about your pillow. It’s also worth noting it can get very hot in there unless you are happy to sleep with the patio door open. The hotel is next door and this can get quite loud as mentioned in other reviews but this didn’t really bother us - it may do if you are a light sleeper - the second bedroom is on the other side of the apartment so less likely to be impacted. The communal bin area also doesn’t seem to separate recycling from general waste (only glass) which doesn’t seem great for a seaside town with a focus on sustainability. All in all this is a great place to stay in St Ives particularly for Porthminster beach. A few small touches could make this a 10 out of 10 holiday stay.

    Thank you for your fantastic feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the property, the area and your stay! Thank you again for your comments and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Kinds Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

  • "We have stayed at Peninsula 2 before and so knew what to expect and again the property did not disappoint."

    However, the one thing that let it down was the family above us. Instead of a family of 3, 2 adults and a small child it sounded like a herd of elephants and that is no exaggeration. Constant running around and stomping across the floor, I cannot believe that this family did not stop stomping back and forth. That coupled with what sounded like balls being bounced on the floor constantly became unbearable at times. I did at one point pick up the phone to call your office but we went out instead. There was a total disregard for noise or how it impacts on the property below. I appreciate that the child may have SEND and therefore difficult for them especially being cooped up on a poor weather day but a little consideration isn’t much to ask for. Perhaps a note in your literature to advise of noise and consideration would be helpful and no ball games inside. Anyway, that has not affected our decision to return again next year and we will be booking soon. Hopefully with more considerate neighbours.

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. We apologise for the noise from the apartment above . We have not had a problem before but we will have a word with the owners because it must not happen again. Thank you once again .and we look forward to your next visit.

    Only minor downside is the noise given proximity to the hotel.

  • "The apartment was better than the website suggested."

    The beds were wonderfully comfortable. The view from the outdoor space was spectacular. We spent a lot of time in St Ives. We visited 2 of our favourite restaurant's - the seafood cafe and the Bistro in Fore Street. Each time we took a taxi and paid £5 each way for 3 passengers. Great value. The apartment was very clean and there was the added surprise of a small welcome pack. Thank you for that ! We will definitely be back to stay hopefully next year.

    Thank you very much for your Feedback following your recent stay at Peninsula Apartment 2 and we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and the property exceeded your expectations. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Best wishes, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. Property Owner

  • "Amazing apartment with the most gorgeous views and perfect garden for a little one."

    We couldn’t ask for a better stay with our little boy. The location and facilities are amazing. The spa passes were also an added bonus too as you can use the spa facilities and also get 20% off food and spa treatments at the hotel next door. My only recommendation is to maybe update what is included in the apartment on the listing as we took a lot of things that were included in the apartment. 1 of which was an iron and ironing board which I messaged about and was told it wasn’t included and when we arrived they were both in the apartment.

    Thank you for your fabulous feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved the property, your stay and were able to enjoy the use of the spa passes! We apologise that you were incorrectly informed about the items included, for future reference all of our apartments provide an iron and board.

    The apartment was clean, comfortable and we never tired of waking up to the sound of the sea. The views were beautiful, we loved being so close to Porthminster Beach and enjoyed pottering around St Ives. Our only complaint was there was nowhere to put our recycling. We will definitely be back.
