    Which has to do with the house keeper Julie Hadfield especially with COVID ever thing first class. The views are out of this world we have stopped in Carbis bay for many years and are one of the best views. We have booked with carbis bay holidays many times and it has know been taken over by Sykes holidays have to say i am concerned that standards will not be the same. If I may I would like to make 2 suggestion's a hand rail up the main stairs as you turn to the flat ,when you are carrying things up and down you have to hold onto the wall. The other is a full sized ironing board when you are staying for 2 weeks you need to iron things the little one that goes on the table is not sufficient.

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. Access to Pelagos is on the seaward side of Chy-an-Kerris, down one set of external steps and then up one flight of stairs to the first floor.
