  • “Great location.”

    Great apartment. There was only two of us, might be a bit more cramped if four people were staying there, but we were there for two weeks. Good standard and upkeep, very happy to recommend to others. One small point is, there was a Christmas tree stored in one of the wardrobes taking up quite a bit of space. Surely better to be stored elsewhere considering how often it will be used throughout the year. We had a lovely time there and Alex at CBH provided great service when we pointed out a light ...

    Great apartment. There was only two of us, might be a bit more cramped if four people were staying there, but we were there for two weeks. Good standard and upkeep, very happy to recommend to others. One small point is, there was a Christmas tree stored in one of the wardrobes taking up quite a bit of space. Surely better to be stored elsewhere considering how often it will be used throughout the year. We had a lovely time there and Alex at CBH provided great service when we pointed out a light not working, very efficient in replacing the very unusual bulb. 5 stars :-)

About the location

CARBIS BAY

St Ives 2 miles ; Hayle 3.5 miles ; Penzance 8.5 miles

Just a short drive from iconic St Ives, the seaside town of Carbis Bay is best-known for its beautiful stretch of pure white sand. With turquoise waters and sheltered conditions, the beach feels almost subtropical and is the perfect spot for a good old-fashioned day by the sea. The beach is also home to the Ocean Sports Centre, so if sunbathing is not really your thing, why not hire a kayak or SUP and get out on the water instead. Or why not treat yourself to a Spa day at the boutique hotel which overlooks the beach and has a fabulous terrace where cocktails can be enjoyed in the Cornish sunshine? Carbis Bay has a small range of local shops and restaurants as well as a fish & chip takeaway and railway branchline. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country.

There is a Good Housekeeping Bond of £100 for this property. Access to Amethyst from the rear car park is down 36 steps, then through the lobby door and up one level via 16 steps.
