Tate Reach is a magnificent, granite faced, detached house positioned just behind the Tate St Ives and Porthmeor beach. The names of both of the apartments were inspired by two famous artists who had great connections with St Ives.
Whistler is named after the famous American born, British based artist ‘James Whistler’ who visited St Ives in April-May 1884 and stayed in nearby Barnoon Terrace. Wallis is of course named after the well renowned local naïve artist ‘Alfred Wallis’, who’s progressive work, was appreciated by other St Ives artist colony greats such as Ben Nicholson and Kit Wood.

"Beautiful apartment, fantastic view very well equipped and to quote my wife ‘WARM even without any heating on’. Really enjoyed our week, wish we were still there."
Neil & June Austin
"Had a lovely week here. All the usual Carbis Bay touches...cream tea, pure apple juice and milk in the fridge on arrival....fresh flowers in the bedroom etc. This is the 3rd time I have used this company and they have never failed to make my holiday perfect. Definitely recommend."
"Thank you so much for allowing us and our dog to stay in this lovely apartment. The views are stunning and I could have laid in bed all week starring out to the sea and the beaches of the other side.
All of the little touches (scones and apple juice) made our stay that little bit more special and we really don't want to leave!
We love St Ives even got married here at the Harbour Hotel, 3 years ago so come back often, This stay has been one of our favorites. We will be back at Whistler for sure and Alfie our pug thoroughly enjoyed it, especially his doggy treats! (Thank you)
All the very best, Francesca, David and Alfie.
"Thank you so much for a lovely stay. The apartment is fabulous and views are incredible! We have stayed many times in St Ives and Carbis Bay and this apartment is one of the best locations so far."
Just what we needed - lazy days in St Ives a beautiful spot. The views are spectacular always changing so you don't really head to go out!
However, we enjoyed many walks to the beach with our old dog Toffy who found a new lease of life3 but who is now exhausted. Walks along the coastal path in both directions are a great. A lovely walk along the coast to Lelant setting of where you can get the train back to st ives was a nice thing to do for the day but take a pasty!
Apartment is spotless and has everything you need. The decking out the back was a bonus and a reel sun trap what we enjoyed as well as the dog.
Shame only having a short stay, would of loved to stay longer! Thank you for sharing the weather with us.
"We had the most enjoyable holiday at whistler in st Ives the apartment was the best self catering we have stayed in,we didn't think anything could beat it, it was lovely to be met by Lesley such a nice lady. The apartment is in a wonderful spot with breathtaking views over St Ives."
"We really enjoyed staying at the beautiful Whistler apartment the booking process was quick and simple with plenty of advice available when I needed assistance to ascertain if the property and location was suitable. We found it to be very clean and comfortable on arrival with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The views from the apartment were fabulous! Thank you to the housekeeper for the warm welcome and we appreciated the little extra touches which included doggie treats, fresh flowers, a beautiful cream tea and supplies for a cuppa which was very thoughtful after a long drive. " Lynn Standen
"We really liked the Whistler property, the views were amazing!! It was a nice comfortable, spacious apartment. Being met by Lesley was nice & to be shown around, plus the food/champagne/flowers were a lovely gesture. The property was spotlessly clean. We needed to adjust the heating time whilst we were there & Lesley had somebody with us within an hour or so. We all really loved the spa bath!!"
Melissa & Chris Noonan
"We had a lovely holiday at Whistler. Everything went well from start to finish, the booking process was very good, excellent communication and very warm welcome from Lesley. The apartment was furnished to a very high standard and immaculate with views to die for. Nice extra touches like the flowers and cream tea. We will be booking with Carbis Bay holidays next year."
Audrey, Michael and Sean
“We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Whistler. The apartment is excellent and very well equipped and comfortable. The views are magnificent. The booking process was very smooth and the car parking ticket was a real bonus. We would thoroughly recommend it to anyone and look forward to another stay ourselves in the not too distant future.”
“Booking process was excellent. Key and parking permit handover on time. Accommodation at the Whistler is excellent; this is our second stay there and will be our future choice of holiday stay. It has everything to make a comfortable stay, high quality furnishings and fittings, fantabulous views and the decking is our bonus when the sun peeks through.”
“The apartment was superb, great location and much closer than first impressions when we arrived from top of the hill, so handy for the town but with wonderful views. Will definitely be back and recommend it was great and weather superb. St Ives is terrific.”
"We had a lovely week in the Whistler apartment, the accommodation was a high standard and we were pleased to be able to bring our dog with us to such a nice apartment. We walked from Penzance to St Ives across the width of Cornwall which was a great walk and not too difficult along St Michael’s Way."
Fabulous apartment! The views are outstanding. Weather great (as normal for St Ives) Thank you Lesley for everything, lovely touches with the dog treats and fresh flowers all over the apartment and house.
See you next year! Jean, Paul & Dog
What a lovely apartment! The views are the best I think I've ever had (been coming to St Ives for the last 50 years!) We loved the location - close to the town and harbour and equally close to Porthmeor. It was also very quiet being lurched away above the town. The apartment was very well equipped, I can't think of anything I missed and it was very warm and cosy, even when the north westerly winds where at their height!!
Thank you Lesley for all you did (even alerting us of traffic problems so we could re-route) We really appreciated the 'goodies' for us and Izzy our dog!
Walk from Lelant - Fantastic! Tate gallery, wonderful now its been refurbished. Art galleries many and full of lovely things to purchase. Loved Porthmere beach cafe and the Digey Deli - so much!
Thank you to all at Carbis Bay Holidays!
