    It's in the right location with easy walking distance to local places. It was so beautiful just waking up to the views of the beach! You're also a short drive to other places to visit as well. Bonus to have a parking space in a secure car park but the space is quite tight. I would happily rebook this apartment for a future visit.

    Such a convenient location, so close to the beach but also just a short walk to the shops and harbour. I miss staring out at that lovely view! Well equipped, comfortable and clean. The only thing we would say is that the TV was very slow and would crash a lot - not sure if that’s an issue with the wifi as we were watching Netflix or if the TV could do with being upgraded. Thank you so much for a lovely stay!

    Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us feedback and comments following your stay at Ocean Shore. We really appreciate it. We thank you for making us aware of the TV problem and can assure you that we will investigate to rectify this problem going forward.

  • "Arrived Sat late teatime , had to spend well over an hour cleaning before we felt at all comfortable to bring luggage in."

    Apartment needed high and low deep clean . Body hairs in bathroom cabinet, bedroom blind filthy, body grease on all work surfaces and touch points through out the flat. Chipped crockery, dirty bedside lights, sand and dirt on floors and under sofa cushions.... and much more !! Contacted Carbis Bay Office Monday morning. They sent some one out to look but it seems this is standard that Sykes holidays regard to be 5 star! No feed back given to us .We contacted again Wed morning. Staff came out to meet us but it had to be in their time, to suit their agenda so we had to give up holiday time to meet staff at the apartment .They wouldn't come out after 6pm so we could enjoy afternoon out. We were told this would have been regarded as an emergency so we should have alerted Saturday evening to the emergency number .However even when we highlighted need for deep over haul , the disinterest of the Carbis Bay staff was palpable. Again it appears that the management of the apartment are happy to sell the property as 5 star. Apparently we have to deal with the owner who lives in Australia because that is in the terms and conditions. We booked this apartment as part of South Devon/Cornwall road trip. The previous apartment had been immaculate , managed by the owners who lived locally. As explained to Sykes we had 3 days of commercial trips booked in that part of Cornwall .However we left the apartment early once all the trips had taken place. Didn't want to be in such a grubby environment for a moment longer. Moved on then to another immaculate property . We know what 5 star cleanliness and 5 star customer service looks like. Ocean Shore falls short on all aspects.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, we are pleased that when you reported your findings on the Monday of your stay at the property we were able to get our team down asap, unfortunately on arrival the team were told that you had remedied all the points you have highlighted on your complaint and did not have any photos we could show the cleaner or the owner. You had also declined the offer for us to send the cleaner back down to the property to attend to the deep cleaning issues you had highlighted. The cleaner and the owner have been notified of all the issues you encounted and we will put steps in place to make sure the cleaning issues are addressed and kept on top of. We hope you can appreciate that as all local members of the community with families, we are unable to meet guests outside of office hours unless it is an emergency, in these circumstances we are very happy to help and have a dependable trade team on hand. Thank you again for working with us on this matter, Kind Regards The Carbis Bay Holidays Team Property Owner

    We had some problems: The kitchen tap flew apart and we repaired it ourselves. The bedroom tv remote did not work so we had to buy new batteries. The oven needs a deep clean. The bathroom extractor did not work. The bed was hard and uncomfortable and contributed to cutting short our holiday by 1 day. On leaving, as requested, we stripped the bed to discover very stained pillows which need replacing and the pillow protectors need to be washed.

The property

Set above Porthminster Beach, at Carrack Widden, on the terrace in St Ives, this one bedroom, second floor apartment enjoys stunning sea views from its living area, a short stroll from the harbour, town centre, beaches, and St Ives scenic railway.

Sleeping two, with an infant, its perfect for a romantic retreat or a young family’s holiday to St Ives.

The open plan design means whether you’re cooking, dining or relaxing you’ll benefit from the stunning sea views from the large window in the living area, which frame a picture postcard view of Porthminster Beach and St Ives Bay, take a seat in the two comfy armchairs placed by the window and relax watching the everchanging colours of the ocean or enjoy the entertainment package provided, with a 40″ Samsung Smart Full HD television, with DVD/Blu-Ray player. The kitchen/diner is within the open plan living space, ideal for socialising with the chef, and benefiting from the views, a round glass topped table with four matching grey leather dining chairs are provided, the contemporary kitchen is well-appointed with white units, spacious worktops and integrated dishwasher and washing machine, providing all you need for your holiday, additional coin operated commercial washing facilities are available in the laundry building at the back of the building.

The master king-sized bed is sumptuously dressed in Egyptian cotton, to help with a peaceful night’s sleep, this tranquil room offers plenty of storage space for your holiday outfits, a shower room with walk in rain shower and under-floor heating, is conveniently located adjacent to it.

Treat yourself to a delicious meal on Porthminster Beach, its just a short walk from the apartment and there is a choice of café or fine dining restaurant, the sea views are breath-taking, St Ives is surrounded by glorious sandy beaches, a pretty working harbour and pretty cobbled streets full of boutiques, cafes, unique shops and galleries, a visit to the largest, the Tate and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden highlights the towns link with artist worldwide with many exhibitions to enjoy.

The South West Coast Path is a walker’s paradise, it circles Cornwall’s coastline, and you can join it just a few steps from the apartment, locally it heads towards Zenor in one direction and the Hayle Estuary and Carbis Bay Beach in the other, like the scenic railway, which follows a similar stunning coastline journey with breath-taking views all the way. Carbis Bay Beach is a spectacular stretch of golden sand, with award winning, Blue Flag status, crystal clear waters, this secluded bay is lifeguarded at peak times, so ideal for experiencing the water sports on offer.

Watching the sun set over St Ives is hard to match but with St Michaels Mount, near Penzance in the background its truly majestic and well worth a visit, just like a romantic night out at the open air theatre, near Lands End, The Minack is dramatically cut out of the edge of a Cornish cliffside, venture into the tropics of the rainforest at the Eden Project, near St Austell, or trace the filming locations for the BBC TV series Poldark or Doc Martin both filmed in Cornwall, the little ones will love the animals at Newquay Zoo or Paradise Park, near Hayle. If you’re a beach lover then Ocean Shore is an idyllic choice for a holiday and well located for exploring St Ives and Cornwall.
