"4shore is a beautiful apartment with spacious living accommodation and a well equipped kitchen. Bathrooms are well finished with powerful showers. The best things about this apartment are the luxurious master bedroom and the wrap around balcony. The bedroom is large light and airy with dual aspect doors which open onto the fabulous balcony. This has seating for lounging in the sun and eating alfresco. We stayed for our honeymoon and couldn't have picked a better place to stay.
Marvellous views and a lovely place that we would definitely return to! Thankyou."

"We love the 4Shore apartment. It works so well for a family of 4. It’s super clean, well equipped and is in a great location. We have already booked again for next year!"
"4shore is a beautiful apartment that has everything you'd need for a family holiday.
The views of the bay are stunning and throwing open the curtains in the morning is a real treat.
We've stayed 2 years in a row and hope to be back."

“This is our second year at 4Shore, we love this place from the very first time we stepped into 4Shore it felt like a home from home. We could talk about the beautiful beaches of ST Ives or the adventurous walks and rambles or the fantastic restaurants and cafes and lovely quaint shops St Ives has to offer but the fun about all these amazing places is discovering them! So 4Shore; after a long journey we were met, as last year, with a very clean, tidy, very homely gorgeous apartment. There is everything you can think of and even things you hadn’t thought of. You can tell 4Shore is owned by a family who love it as much as we love staying here. It has been an absolute delight staying here and we hope to return to 4Shore next year.
Thank you to Chris & Alison, Martin & Carbis Bay Holidays for making 4Shore a huge part of our wonderful holiday here in St Ives.
Best wishes Justin, Sarah & Lawrance from Worcestershire xxx”
“Our second stay at 4Shore…we love it here!! The Apartment is fantastic, clean & spacious. It is so well situated and convenient we love it here!! (Oh, did I already mention that!! 😊)
The views are stunning, we spent hours on the balcony/terrace, just watching the sea.
The beach is beautiful and was close enough to reach within 3 or 4 mins walk, we love that…The town has lots of shops now, a good selection for a nice browse.
The Restaurants, well there are lots! We enjoyed and The Hub, for a family, they were great…Fish & Chip shops, well we always go back to Becks in Carbis Bay as we rate these number one. We tried the award winner in the Harbour Front, and it wasn’t bad. We enjoyed the ‘Rib ride’ this time...Great fun, very bouncy! It is something we will be doing again, according to my 2 daughters! Thank you for another fabulous holiday! See you next year – we love it here 😊 “

“Totally enjoyable stay in your fab apartment
Home from home – happy to return
Amazing views from the balcony
Nothing negative to say
Keeping fit in the Harbour Hotel Spa was great!
Yomping up & down in the hill was a challenge
Obviously, a well-equipped apartment
Unfortunately, we have to leave!! Doinch yon fawr from the 4 Welsh ladies from Cardiff & Don Tydrido xx”
Booked on spur of the moment, we’ve been to St Ives many times but never during the winter, the weather has been kind and we have been walking every day. Sennen Cove to Lands End was fab. We have used Carbis Bay Holidays many times and have always found them and their accommodation excellent.
Teresa & Kevin

"A simply amazing apartment. Superb location. This is our third apartment in the block and probably the best. We visited St Ives every year for the past 10 year and it continues to delight. The food festival is always good but this year it was the best ever!"
"Very comfortable flat in a fabulous location. Beautiful scenery, an ideal place for recharging the batteries and escaping reality, thank you."
"We have had a wonderful stay here. The apartment was clean and well stocked on arrival and has a lovely homely feel to it. The views are amazing, and the large outdoor balcony space is brilliant, especially for an 18-month-old son who loved running around outside. We visited many great places in St Ives but can highly recommend the Porthminster Café. We had a beautiful last night meal there and they also catered for the little one. Hoping to come back and stay here again next year. Thank you. Justin, Sarah & Lawrence."
"Our third visit to this fabulous apartment. We have had a wonderful time again this year. Fabulous to see the seals on a walk to Carbis Bay. The most amazing meals at Porthminster Kitchen, would highly recommend a visit. We love most of the pubs in the town and the shops. Its great having the use of the spa next door at the Harbour Hotel. Can’t wait to return, thank you."
Same as last year another lovely week in a great location.
"We do a lot of holidays in the UK with a rented cottages or apartments and to date have not been as well kitted out as this one!
Unfortunately the weather didn't let us fully utilize the outside decking, but that's our fault for coming in March.
All in all we've had a fabulous week, it just went too quickly!
We love St Ives and come here ofter. This was our first visit with a baby & toddler and the apartment was perfect for this. Recommend for future visitors; Rattler Cyder, Blas Burgerworks, The Balcony and Godrevy Cafe.
Final comment, Hayley the housekeeper was very welcoming and helped us out on Mothering Sunday with a minor issue, Thank you Hayley.
Hopefully be back in the future"
"Our second (and not last) stay in this fabulous apartment. It is so tasteful, peaceful and restful. Our recommendations are; Carbis Bay Beach Café for excellent coffee, walking there by the south west coastal bath along the sea. A flat 4 mile walk along the coastal path though Carbis Bay to Lelant to the train back. Tapas at the Porthmeor Beach Restaurant. Fish and Chips at Godolphin Arms Marazion, looking over St Michael’s mount. Perranporth Beach Café and The Victoria Pub. Evening drinks on the roof at the Pedn Olva hotel. Thank you."

"Our 3rd visit to this fabulous apartment. We have had a wonderful time here again. Fabulous to see the seals on a walk to Carbis Bay and also at Whitsands Bay. The most amazing meals at Porthminster Kitchen, would highly recommend! We love most of the pubs in the town - oh and the shops! Its great having the use of the spa next door, we love it and can't wait to return.
Thank you & see you all very soon."
"Another wonderful stay in this very beautiful apartment. Hearing the sea every day upon waking up is amazing. Fantastic weather for November, lovely walks on the coastal path. Great meals in the Porthminster kitchen and Hub. Can't wait to return"
"We had the most fabulous time again in 4shore, we absolutely love the apartment it's perfectly equipped for all your needs."
"We really enjoyed our stay at 4Shore and the apartment exceeded our expectations. The views from the rooms are spectacular and we loved watching the changing colour of the sea from the window. It was fantastic to pull back the bedroom curtains in the morning and have the view of Porthminster Beach. The kitchen is so well equipped we were happy to stay in and cook on several evenings."
“The apartment is fantastic and has everything you could wish for. We have been coming to St Ives for 20 Years and it is the best place to stay by a country mile. You cannot fault the cleanliness and standard of the apartment.”
“What a fantastic apartment, just loved it all. All expectations exceeded I would say. We all really enjoyed it.
Just one thing I would point out..... We can't hear the sea now we're back home from our bedroom!
We'll just have to come back -that's all there is to it!”
“We really enjoyed our stay at 4Shore. The accommodation was superb with its fantastic wrap around balcony and outdoor space that took full advantage of the wonderful sea views. We have used Carbis Bay Holidays accommodation for the last couple of years and have never been disappointed. We loved the location and also took advantage of the Spa facilities included at the nearby hotel.”
“We had a lovely break and the apartment was faultless - both the quality of accommodation and customer service is truly excellent.”
“We had a fabulous stay at 4shore.We found the booking process, standard of 4shore and cleanliness to be very good - and certainly our expectations were exceeded. To this end we have booked again for next year!! 4shore is an ideal spot with wonderful balconies with excellent views. The furniture on the balcony is an excellent addition which allowed us to sit in the sunshine reading our books and enjoying the scenery.”
“Accommodation was first class 10/10.Having had 3 holidays with Carbis bay in the last 12 months this was by far the best. It was like stopping in a 5 star hotel.”
"We were very pleased with 4Shore, it was faultless, it was a pleasure to cook in the apartment. We went to lands end, the lizard, Mullian cove and porthleven. We also ate at the cook house for lunch, very small portions, but food tasty, make sure you sit upstairs if you go as there is no view on the lower level. We had fish and chips at the ocean grill, but found buying the fish at the beach restaurant more flavour, i recommend the hake. We also had lunch at the Navy inn in penzance, very nice too."
"We had a wonderful stay, 4Shore was beautiful and very well equipped - perfect for our needs."
"Our holiday in 4shore was absolutely wonderful! The owners have thought about everything you could possibly need----- from the smallest kitchen utensil to the fantastic patio furniture which we made good use of, given the lovely weather we had ! The apartment was stunning and certainly had the WOW factor, and was spotless which we have only come to expect from Carbis Bay Holidays!!! So handy for the beach and all its amenities and the gorgeous St Ives is just a leisurely stroll away.We dined out on a couple of evenings( when we could tear ourselves from the beautiful view on the balcony) at Alba restaurant and the New World chinese restaurant both a stroll away in St Ives and both which we would highly recommend. When on the beach, the Porthminster Beach cafe takes some beating for its gorgeous fish and chips or burger from the bbq!"
"4Shore is a superb apartment in every respect, beautifully appointed, equipped with everything we could wish for (and a few things we couldn’t even imagine!) and with a magnificent view of Porthminster Beach and St Ives beyond. In warmer weather I suspect you would find it difficult trying to get us to leave with that amazing balcony! The private parking space is a huge bonus too. When we arrived Hayley was lovely and the apartment spotless. In fact I think it took a while to pick our chins off the floor once we had been shown around the apartment; the photos on your site looked good but the reality was spectacular!"
"We had a really great holiday in the 4Shore apartment, it was beautiful with amazing views and so well equipped, a fantastic, comfortable base from which to explore the area. We particularly enjoyed the beaches, Tate, Barbara Hepworth, and Leech galleries. Food wise we would recommend Gurnards Head and Halsetown Inns, Porthgwidden cafe and Moomaids ice creams on the harbour."

"We have been holidaying in St Ives for many years and 4Shore was by far the best accommodation we have ever had.. The apartment was very comfortable, well equipped and beautifully furnished, all to a very high standard. Everything was nice and clean and it was lovely and warm. The apartment is very well positioned for ease of access to the beach and shops and we especially enjoyed the fabulous views and generous outdoor space."
"The holiday at 4Shore was one of the best we have had, from start to finish the process of booking the holiday to arriving at the apartment was made very easy due to the high level of service you offered. The apartment was truly amazing and the owners have clearly put their heart and soul into the place."
"Our stay at 4shore was lovely. nice to have all the home comforts, the owners have thought of it all. As for restaurants... our favourites are Black Rock, Hobblers and the Porth Gwidden cafe. We will be back in May for sure."
"We had a lovely stay at 4Shore, the apartment was fantastic, fitted out beautifully and views to die for. The location is truly excellent, once you arrive and park up you can pretty much forget the car, St. Ives is literally a couple of minutes walk away which is so nice and easy."
"We had a very enjoyable holiday at 4Shore, it was well furnished and equipped, superb views of the sea. We had two good evening meals at the Carbis Bay Hotel and good chinese food at the only eat-in restaurant in town."
