    “We have been coming to Gallinas Point regularly for the past 11 years but the prices for 2022 have now increased extortionately - is there a reason for this?”

    - Lovelock, June 2021

    Hi David, Thank you ever so much for your response, it is much appreciated. The pricing has been set due to the demand for holidays and properties in St Ives and Carbis Bay for 2022, however they are constantly being monitored and reviewed. We have mentioned your comments regarding the pricing to the owners and they have taken your points on board and will have a discussion as to how to move forward and hit the right balance. Kind regards, Carbis Bay Holidays Owner relations
