“Everything was spot on as we have come to expect with Carbis Bay Holidays. The Point was well appointed and clean. I would have no hesitation at recommending Carbis Bay Holidays for their properties, service and efficient simplicity of web site.”
"We have been coming to Cornwall now,as a family, for just 50 years, our stay at The Point last week was everything we expected and more. It was very clean, well presented, and all the fixtures and fittings were clearly of the highest quality, and our stay was excellent. Our aim will be to use it again, hopefully next year. I'd go as far as saying that it was the best property we have stayed in to date. During our stay, we became "regulars" at The Seafood Cafe in Fore Street, excellent food, extremely pleasant staff, pleasant ambience, and not overly expensive, what more could you ask for, and we would recommend anyone to try it, but I'm sure that in the height of summer, it would always be necessary to book, as we did last week. In summary, then ,an excellent week was had all round."
"We had a fantastic holiday, The Point was great . Perfect location. Close enough to get to everything in a relatively short walk but far enough out to be out of the melee and on the right side to get out in the car easily without crawling through crowded streets which really should be pedestrianised. The view, even from the ground floor The Point was great. The apartment was really well finished and really well appointed.in terms of walks etc we love the coastal path walk to Carbis Bay beach and did this on a few occasions and even managed it last year with push chairs etc but didn’t need those this year. For a relaxed evening meal (without kids) we had a great night at the Porthminster Cafe which is great value for excellent food in a cracking environment. We’ve eaten there each of the last 3 years and noted it was in the Times tope 20 best places to eat on the coast a few weeks ago. With the kids we loved Blas Burger, small and grungy but a great burger and great value. Each year the range and quality of places to eat seems to improve with excellent Cornish produce so it seems to be coming a foodie heaven. The beaches are the main attraction for us and shouldn’t be underplayed. We’ve two young boys and they absolutely loved the boat trip on the Dolly P to see the seals. We’d recommend that particularly for people with young kids. Ours are 3 1/2 and nearly 6."
"Every aspect of our stay at The Point was fantastic. The accommodation was excellent and had everything we needed, right down to the buckets and spades provided. The organisation of it was very good especially as we booked last minute."
"Thank you for another beautiful stay at the point, this was the second time spent at Gallinas Point and we were fortunate enough to have glorious weather!! The apartment as the first time was excellent and would highly recommend it to anyone. the service was first class no concerns at all. Having spent holidays at St Ives for the past 20yrs we have visited many places, but for the first time we went Porthcurno and the Minnack Theatre which was wonderful, and well worth the visit, we ate ate quite a few restaurants/pubs all along the Wharf, Lifeboat inn, The Sloop, The Hub, The Mermaid, Pells, Harbour lights to name but a few!! all of which were enjoyable."
"We very much enjoyed our stay at The Point & found everything to be more than satisfactory - everything was very clean & good quality."
"Everything in the flat was fine; we found that it was fully equipped to a very high standard. This is the first time we have stayed in a self catering apartment for many years, we visited the Beach Restaurant very good food with friendly helpful staff, Becks fish & chips are absolutely first class."
"The Point apartment was very impressive and everything was top quality....... I can honestly say that the beds were the most comfortable we have ever slept in!!. We would definitely recommend the Seafood Cafe for evening meals and also the Balcony Bar for people watching."
"Just a message to say how much we enjoyed our short break at The Point. It was a last minute booking, we were absolutely thrilled with the apartment. It was the best apartment we have ever rented. Everything you wanted or needed was there. The standard of furniture, fittings, kitchen appliances and extras, bed linen and towels was superb. It is in a fabulous position with side views of the sea from the balcony and secure, private car parking outside the apartment. It was a 10 mins walk to our favourite pub and the shops in St Ives. The Sloop Inn did a great offer of a steak, dessert and bottle of wine for two. There are walks all around the immediate area. One walk we have done in the past being the cliff walk from St Ives to Zennor. It is rather a long walk but there is a homely pub to welcome you - and a bus to take you back to St Ives in high season. Thanks for a fabulous holiday."
"Everything was just fine in The Point - very adaptable around arrival time/ arrangements and the place was great."
"I would just like to say what a brilliant time we had at Gallinas Point St Ives .The accommodation was of a high standard and spotlessly clean. The position could'nt be better. Great views and only a short walk to the centre of St Ives."
"Our stay at The Point exceeded all expectations. The flat was spotless, warm, and welcoming. The beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept in and was seriously considering taking one home with me! The apartment was decked out in comfortable and fashionable furniture that was a pleasure to relax in. The flat had nice views of the ocean and was situated in an excellent location which was a pleasant walk into town. The apartment was located in a quiet area which was very peaceful at night and indeed at all times of the day. We were met by a Carbis Bay representative literally within minutes of arriving and letting them know we were at the apartment who showed us through the apartment and gave us the key. They were friendly and informative. We had a great time visitng the Eden Project and had it been warmer weather (and not raining) we would have gone on more walks and done more exploring. We had an awesome meal at Cafe Coast which had stunnig views overlooking St.Ives harbour. We had a truly wonderful time in Cornwall and would love to come back in summer when its a little bit warmer! We would not bother looking anywhere else than Carbis Bay Holidays because we could not fault them at all! Thanks again and see you soon!"
