    “Having stayed in Compass Point Apartments on a number of previous occasions, having the number of a house keeper has always been good.”

    It would appear you have stopped this. Upon arrival the instructions we had been sent were incorrect. It then took approx 30 mins to speak with someone (additional manning of phones during change over days would be good) and a further delay in resolving mix up, on your behalf, as to where key entry could be obtained. After a long and arduous journey, this was most unwelcome and took too long to resolve. Lack of house keeper feels like a step backwards. Disappointing start.

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 the apartment from the parking area is along a sloping path and then up 25 shallow steps. Additional parking is available in one of 3 visitor bays on a 'first come first served basis
