    “Lovely apartment with amazing sea views of Carbis Bay.”

    Well equipped and plenty of books for all ages available. Easy access to train line into St Ives and a lovely coastal walk very nearby. Nice clean well-kept site outside. ...

    Well equipped and plenty of books for all ages available. Easy access to train line into St Ives and a lovely coastal walk very nearby. Nice clean well-kept site outside. Had difficulty eating out due to COVID restrictions as pre booking a few days in advance was required. Was expecting some information about where to get take-always locally so think this would help future bookings. Problems: the cot & high chair weren’t to be seen on arrival which caused stress following a very long drive. Contact with the office was less than efficient as put on hold for 15 mins while being transferred. Eventually resolved but would have been better if these items were put out prior to arrival. Wasn’t expecting a hunt & find experience! Collapsible tie to chair high chair was dirty and not very practical for age of child. Think description should be accurate on website. Dishwasher had food in the bottom still from previous booking. En-suite shower didn’t drain away with ease so consecutive showers couldn’t be taken. Keysafe: I printed out instructions from email early July for location of key. These were incorrect - after spending 10 minutes struggling and the awful feeling of ‘what do we do’ I rechecked my emails and you had sent further access details a few days later without alerting to any changes - this should definitely have been a subject headline on the email ! Communication with Carbis Bay Holidays has been very slow over the last year. Hopefully things will improve with the merger. Again - apartment was beautiful and would recommend it!

About the location


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.
