"The apartment was clean and spacious, well equipped kitchen. The location for St Ives was brilliant and the trains were on time. Ideal location to explore Cornwall." Graham Pagett
A perfect spot in Carbis Bay. Great for walking to St Ives and beyond. Godrevy is a beautiful spot for seal spotting. Thank you.
Our second time staying in Dune Drifter. The apartment was as lovely as ever and we really enjoyed our stay. The weather wasn’t as lovely, however we still managed to have a jam-packed week taking walks along the coastal path to St Ives was favorite. Thanks again.
Had a wonderful time here. We’ve stated at Compass Point for several years, but this is our first time here. Lovely relaxing place with great links to St Ives when needed. Enjoyed it so much, have already booked some apartment next year. Thanks.
Had a great week, apartment was great too.
We have had the best week, weather has been glorious which has made the views stunning. The apartment is in the perfect location quick train ride into St Ives or a leisurely walk along the coast. The apartment itself is lovely and cosy, nice and clean and love the White Company products and the complimentary cream teas and apple juice. A bonus has been the parking space, no worrying whether we will get parked needed.
Second time been here. Lovely apartment and wonderful location. Great facilities. Less crowded and very convenient if want to go St Ives. Nice weather too. Everything is just what we like. We will come back again. Thanks!
Fantastic location and lovely apartment. The views were amazing, and we were fortunate to have a mini heatwave during our second week here. We loved the beach and beach bar, but not the hill! We found the train into St Ives very useful and cheaper than parking. Thanks for everything, hope to return.
Great apartment, very comfortable, lovely views of Carbis Bay. Loved the coastal walk to St Ives, great coffee and views. Porthminster Café, day trips on the train to Penzance and Truro. Good fish and chips at Becks just at the top of the hill. Just what we needed, great holidays.
When the mist finally cleared, we had a good view and were able to get out and about. Enjoyed the break, peaceful hand a well-appointed cottage. Thank you for everything.
Had a good week and managed to go out every day, despite the mini beast from the east.
"Beautiful apartment, very comfortable with all the comforts of home. Very nice break. We will be returning."
"The apartment “Dune Drifter“ was very luxurious and equipped to a high standard. We felt home from the beginning of our stay and so we enjoyed a very relaxed vacation. The apartment is very nice furnished."
"Thanks for your email re our holiday at Dune Drifter. I can confirm that everything about the holiday was perfect (including the weather!!).
The housekeeper, Jo did a fantastic job in accommodating our arrival time and had the apartment ready.
The apartment was fantastic and equipped to a very high standard and also cleanliness was to a very high standard.
The welcome pack was a lovely touch and very well received.
Finally your office kindly agreed to print off our boarding passes for our return flight home and I would like to again thank you for being so helpful.
The purpose of our holiday was to return to Carbis Bay/St Ives (not having been there since the 1980’s!!) and everything we remembered about the area met up to our expectations. This was to have been a ‘one-off’ return but after enjoying our stay so much at Dune Drifter we are already talking about hoping to return next year."
