“This is our 3rd visit to the apartment now ‘The View’ we have had a lovely stay. The new owners have made changes to soft furnishings + very nice pictures. All excellent improvements. We have booked again for next year. 2 other small improvements would make it perfect. Need to change bedroom to include drawer space would like to stay for 2 weeks but not enough storage. Also, very minor need a squeegee for shower screen. Also, Hayley is a credit to Carbis Bay Holidays so helpful. Apartment was spotless + nicely decorated. Used the spa 3 times in the week + hotel for food.
