    “There was a few little problems, the front windows were very drafty and when we opened the right hand side one the hinge was rusty , we know it was very windy but also the noise from the dining room window side was very annoying, not sure where it was coming from but may have been from the extraction vent in the bathroom , also the second bedroom needs blackout blinds as we could not differentiate from night and day , but saying all this we had great time as we have for the last 3 years at this time of year .”

    Thank you for your feedback, we are very sorry to hear there was a few problems during your stay we will be sure to look further into the front windows and we will be sure to pass your comments onto the owner for their consideration. We are pleased to hear you had a great time and we hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, The Carbis Bay Holidays Team. 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.
