    “Apartment in fabulous location.”

    But some big drawbacks - the bed is far too small in main bedroom. This has been the subject of lots of feedback in the visitor book so can only conclude that the owner just doesn’t care about guest comfort. Also, the pillows are dreadful so overall does not make for a good nights sleep which is just not OK. ...

    But some big drawbacks - the bed is far too small in main bedroom. This has been the subject of lots of feedback in the visitor book so can only conclude that the owner just doesn’t care about guest comfort. Also, the pillows are dreadful so overall does not make for a good nights sleep which is just not OK. Also, on arrival the security gates wouldn’t open and this is a major nuisance when people have driven 7+ hours to get there. This affected other holidaymakers and need to be rectified.

    Dear Mrs Jordan, Firstly we would like to take the opportunity to thank you for submitting your feedback. We will pass on the points you have raised about the bed and the pillows to the owner. In regard to the feedback about the security gates, our property team will look into this when they are passing as it could be the battery needs replacing in the remote. We hope to invite you back in the future, Kind Regards, Owner Relations, Carbis Bay Holidays Property Owner

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 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.
