"We really enjoyed our stay in Panacea - the apartment was very comfortable, spacious and spotless. It’s very well equipped and had everything we needed.
It’s in a lovely quiet location, just a few minutes’ walk from Porthminster beach.
We were fortunate to be able to use the Spa passes, on a couple of occasions, when it was raining!
We would love to stay again and would definitely recommend."

"We only booked Panacea the day before arriving based on the good weather forecast. Despite the short notice, booking was easy and clear directions and access information sent the next day. The apartment is beautifully furnished and has everything you need for a great holiday. Great location for walking everywhere, town, beaches, shops and restaurants and not too steep a climb back which is a bonus. We were worried about privacy when using the balcony, but even though most of the other apartments were occupied we were not aware of other people. Would highly recommend."
“Having stayed back in May before you brought Panacea, we can honestly say you’ve brought life back to what is a wonderful holiday home. The ‘fun’ touches are great – our 3-year-old boy loved the dinosaur skull! Many thanks for having us & we hope to stay here again soon x”
"A fabulous stay – Loved the aprartment and everything included with it.

"Fabulous apartment. Great location. Had a wonderful week exploring St Ives. We will return!!! Spotted 70 seals in the Mutton cove.
Amazing weather for this time of year."

"We enjoyed our holiday in Panacea and found the apartment clean, comfortable and very well equipped. I would certainly recommend it to others. We enjoyed eating at the Sea Food Cafe and the gourmet harbour fish and chips- in fact this is the best takeaway fish and Chips I've ever had. The cafe overlooking Porthmeor beach cafe served lovely coffee and fantastic cakes!"
"Panacea was exactly as expected. Mirrored the pictures on your website. Perfect, home from home experience, with a well stocked kitchen. A lovely relaxing break thank you. Walked from St Ives to St Erth along the coastal path via Carbis Bay, then caught the train back to St Ives. Stunning views. Restaurants - Can recommend the Lifeboat Inn (Steak pie!), The Tea Room in St Ives (Cream Tea), Pengenna Pasties (takeaway), Harbour fish and chips (takeaway). Attractions - Eden Project. The rainforest biome was amazing, not sure the rest lived up to this. An hours drive from St Ives. And finally, a very bracing swim off Porthminster beach. That has to be the ultimate recommendation!"

"Panacea, was even nicer than I expected, it was spotless and so comfortable, there was not one thing we wanted or needed for our stay that the apartment did not provide."
"The holiday was great, Panacea was very comfortable and well appointed. In terms of recommendations I would endorse the other comments about the Sea Food Cafe where we had a delicious lunch."
"We really enjoyed staying at Panacea, it was in a great location, nice and spacious, decor was very pleasing with a very well equipped kitchen- had all the utensils you could need. Good quality appliances, overall I would definitely recommend the apartment to friends and if were were holidaying again in st ives we would definitely consider staying there again. Enjoyed lands end and kynanace cove- worth travelling to. Enjoyed eating at 'The Loft' and the 'Porthminister cafe', cream teas at 'The Tea Shop' were amazing."
"We had a wonderful stay in the Panacea, it was everything we had hoped for. We would recommend Peppers Restaurant for those eating out and the costal walks are beautiful. We particularly enjoyed days out at the Eden Project, the Seal Sanctuary and Newquay Zoo. We have stayed in St Ives many times over the years, the Panacea was one of the best properties we have stayed in."
"We had a great time at Panacea, the apartment was lovely and spacious,we felt really at home the second we walked in. The apartment is fantasticly placed for St Ives too, only a few minutes walk in but lovely and quiet at night and we thought it was kept very nice and clean. We love the coast walk up to Carbis Bay, and also just walking from Porthminster to the beach at the otherside of St Ives is nice, we love the Sloop and the Cornish Arms in Carbis Bay for food. Had a fantastic afternoon in Port Isaac watching the dolphins but I guess we were just lucky then. Mevagissy is a lovely little place to visit and the Minnack theatre is outstanding even in winter."
"We have had a fabulous holiday staying in Panacea in St Ives. The accommodation was absolutely amazing, a fully equipped kitchen, use of the Wii, massive TV (wow!) and the whole apartment was absolutely spotless. The views across Porthminster beach were breathtaking. St Ives town is just a short walk away a nice challenging walk back up that certainly walked off the wine We were very lucky with the weather and had a few days on the beach. We will certainly be back with our family."

"We would just like to say how much we enjoyed staying in Panacea. We were very pleased with the standard of cleanliness of the accommodation and the many thoughtful extras, such as DVDs, toiletries and local information to name but a few. We particularly enjoyed eating at the La Cassita restaurant, where the staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. We also enjoyed an evening at Country Skittles and another evening at the Minack Theatre."
"We really liked Panacea, both in terms of its location, but as with all the Carbis Bay Holiday properties in which we have stayed, it was beautifully appointed. We took every opportunity to walk into St Ives, whether to get fresh croissant in the mornings or to go to Porthminster beach or just down to the harbour for a meander in the evenings. We thoroughly enjoyed meals at La Casita and Pizza Patio and visited several National Trust Properties."

"First and foremost I would like to say that our holiday at Panacea was fantastic, and that secondly I have found (after 16 visits to St Ives in 11 years) the absolute perfect location for all future visits!"
"All we can say is great, great, great! Panacea was fantastic. We had everything we needed, the facilities were fantastic. Location of the property was perfect and the views were great. Standards and cleanliness were all met. You know exactly what your guests need and deliver in every sense. Walks – coastal walk from St Ives to Zennor – quoted as 6 miles, more like 10 miles if you take the coastal up and down route – great for the active guest, great views along the coast line and managed to spot some seals too!"
