"Excellent company, everything fuss free and nothing too much trouble"
"We had a lovely 2 weeks at Beachcomber - it is a delightful apartment and the views of Godrevey were fabulous."
"My family and I spent a perfect holiday in Carbis Bay. The Beachcomber apartment was excellent, Cornwall was beautiful and we met so many nice people. Many thanks once again to all of you from the Carbis Bay service team who gave us a warm welcome and always helped us when needed. Especially we enjoyed a café nearby the beach of Porthmeor and visited some of the grand houses of the National Trust of which we became proud members."
"Our experience at Beachcomber and booking through Carbis Bay holidays was exceptional. This is the first time for many years that we spent our vacation in the UK and the first time we have visited Cornwall and we were not disappointed. The weather was also very good which was an added bonus. The service from Carbis Bay Holidays was hassle free from start to finish. All information that we could possibly need was provided before and during our stay. When a problem occurred during the bank holiday we got an immediate response and everything was taken care of with a smile and without any fuss. Beachcomber is ideally located to travel around the popular towns and is perfectly situated for a walk to the beech or to get the train. With regards the Beechcomber property, this is a credit to the owners - Perfect in every way. The view from the property and surrounding area is breathtaking. Every little detail was thought of, from the lovely gifts on arrival, a very nice touch, to the furnishing inside and outside of the property. The whirlpool bath and Nespresso coffee machine provide a little touch of luxury. We have travelled all over the world and Beachcomber would be listed as one of our favourite places."

"The holiday was superb thank you, and we had a great time, but it went too quickly!
Beachcomber was superb, and very comfortable. Cornwall is superb, you are very lucky to have such a beautiful county."
"We had a lovely time in Beachcomber. We found our accommodation excellent, well stocked with everything we needed.It was the first time we had taken Freddie, our springer spaniel away with us and we thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone. We found that the Badgers Inn in Lelant was particularly good pub food and of course we could take our dog. Alba in St Ives was a fab eating house and highly recommended!"
"Beachcomber - what a superb apartment, we didn't use the car all week ! The sunny garden was perfect for the kids being secure and the choice of outside furniture and bbq added to the great living accommodation. Very tastefully furnished with great attention to detail. A short walk to the Cornish Arms for a pint and also the Italian on St Ives Road, we also ventured further to Becks - best fish and chips in the area."
