    “Overall we enjoyed our week in Carbis Bay.”

    The good points for us for the apartment were the comfy beds, the proximity to the beach, well equipped kitchen and the nice touches such as beach mats and body boards for use during our stay. The sea views are impressive and great that you get that in the front room and main bedroom as well. We were a bit unsure about booking this property because of the negative reviews mentioning the cleanliness.

    The good points for us for the apartment were the comfy beds, the proximity to the beach, well equipped kitchen and the nice touches such as beach mats and body boards for use during our stay. The sea views are impressive and great that you get that in the front room and main bedroom as well. We were a bit unsure about booking this property because of the negative reviews mentioning the cleanliness. Unfortunately, the property wasn't clean enough for us either and definitely needs a more thorough clean going forward. The towels were stained, there were quite a few dusty areas and most of the kitchenware felt sticky so had to be washed before being able to use items. The main bathroom had an unpleasant smell. On the last day of the holiday, the apartment below experienced a leak coming from our apartment (Sykes called to let us know). We were told that an emergency plumber was on his way and would be there within an hour so we left the beach and we waited in for 5 hours for the emergency plumber to come but no word from anyone about what was happening. In the end we went out as a family in the evening after no communication from anyone and received a phone call while we were out from Carbis Bay Holidays to say the plumber was going to let himself in with a key in 10 minutes time. I know it couldn't be helped but I wasn't comfortable with this. We were told we couldn't use the main bathroom for the rest of our stay, we could only use the en suite which was inconvenient and ruined the last day of our holiday. As I say, there were some good points to Amethyst but we won't be staying here again in future.

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 village 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 delightful 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 branch line. The train journey from Carbis Bay into St Ives is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the country; St Ives additionally makes for a great day out, with plenty of galleries to explore. The quayside town of Hayle also isn't far and is home to activities for the all the family, including a golf and a wildlife sanctuary. The Godrevy Nature Reserve and Penwith Heritage Coast are also within easy reach from Carbis Bay, providing outdoors and watersports plans with even more activities to partake in, including coasteering and birdwatching. Carbis Bay is truly a wonderful holiday location for those wanting to experience Cornwall's breathtaking coastline.

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.
