  • “This is our second stay.”

    We felt the property is becoming shabby in some respects; quality control is deficient. The main reason for this comment was the number of dead light globes: Main bathroom ceiling - 1 of 2 Main bathroom light over mirror Ensuite bathroom - 2 of 3 Lounge room ceiling - 1 of 3. When replaced it was with a mismatched globe (bright white instead of soft white) Lounge room wall light - 1 of 4 Lower oven light Also, Kitchen clock battery dead - I replaced that with my own. Torch batteries in kitchen drawer almost dead. Bed linen in main bedroom starting to look tired, and the duvet cover had a couple of ties that were broken. We made two notifications to your office, and had two resultant visits from the maintenance people. It was apparent that they were unable to obtain some types of globe, and by the time we vacated no further action had been taken to finalise the job, leaving two globes still dead in the main bathroom. We are disappointed that the tariff has increased by around 30% for our September 2022 booking - five star prices for less than 5 star attention to detail.

    - Mrs Phillips, September 2021

    Dear Ruth, Thank you very much for taking the time to provide Feedback following your recent stay at Halfway Tree and I am very sorry to hear you felt the apartment did not reach our usual high standards I am pleased to advise all lights in the property are now working, including the two in the bathroom. With regards to the pricing, there has been a huge demand for staycations this year and for 2022, which has increased prices in line with other letting agencies throughout the country. Prices also vary in line with the way school holiday weeks fall, and are also subject to annual price reviews. We would like to reassure you that the prices for 2022 are all monitored very closely and priced with seasonal variance and demand to establish the right balance. Thank you again for your Feedback and we look forward to 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. Carbis Bay is truly a wonderful holiday location for those wanting to experience Cornwall's breathtaking coastline.
