"First time that we have booked via Carbis Bay Holidays.
Our accommodation was simply perfect!
The layout, location, cleanliness, equipment, all exceeded our expectations.
We will be booking again soon!
"Great views, ideal for the beach, really well equipped apartment will be staying here again!"
"We had the best time staying in Emerald, the position is excellent, the facilities are excellent, and the decor was so modern and up to date we loved it, we will hopefully be staying again thanks for sharing it with us ."
"Our family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children absolutely love the Emerald. Our stay this July 2019 was our second visit to the Emerald and about the 6th visit to Cornwall and each year we discover something new in Cornwall. The apartment feels like a second home, so beautifully renovated last year and so clean and all the comforts you need for a luxury holiday. The amazing view of the sea and Carbis bay beach takes your breath away every time, each day painting a different canvas of things to watch on the beach or at sea. Last year we swam right next to a friendly seal on the beach and this year we were lucky enough to see a dolphin so close to the water’s edge. Each morning drawing back the curtains in the main bedroom, opening the balcony doors to be able to see and hear the beautiful ocean, as if it’s in your front garden starts our day with a great big relaxed smile. When the sun shines and turns the sea such a beautiful turquoise colour and the sand almost white you really could be in the Caribbean but with all the comforts of home. You have the added bonus of the train to St Ives taking only 3 minutes, removing the hassle of parking and enabling both adults to be able to enjoy a nice glass of wine at a delicious meal at the Porthmeor beach cafe or many of the other lovely restaurants and shops on St Ives. The Emerald really is our perfect place for our family holidays. I can see us still going when we are retired. The housekeeper Kerry is very lovely and keeps the place perfectly spotless. Thank you so much for another amazing holiday."

"Would recommend this flat for the views, cleanliness, good parking and well fitted out."
We’ve had a very relaxing and comfortable time here, the apartment is stunning, beautifully done refurbishment – good choices. Huge comfy bed always makes for the biggest difference. We’ve been visiting Carbis Bay for many years and this trip was the first we made in over the ‘other side’ of the estuary at Hayle. Fabulous walking on the beach and coastal path, we almost made it to Godrevy but didn’t allow enough time for it. Next time, maybe we will! This place never fails to please. Seals in the bay throughout our stay and close encounters when swimming, just wonderful! A beautiful morning as we leave, wish we could stay for longer.
Great accommodation, very modern flat. Fantastic location, beautiful views and very comfortable. Sad to be leaving, thank you.
The apartment is fabulous, very comfy and well equipped. Amazing views and handy having the train so near. Can recommend the trip on Dolly P to Seal Island. Would stay here again.
Me and my Mum had the Emerald Apartment from 14th-21st July and just wanted to say that we absolutely loved it. It was everything we were expecting and more! It was a great location, spotlessly clean, very well equipped and fantastic views. Felt so comfortable in there and so at home which was really nice, wanted to stay longer. Would you please also thank the owner for allowing me to take my Hamster with me, that meant a lot. Really missing the place and will definitely be back in the future.
want to thank you for the ease, efficiency and friendliness of the service received from you.
Great apartment love the décor. We had great weather which made sitting on the balcony enjoyable. We will return. Porthminster Beach Café for dinner is the best yet.
Really pleased with the renovations and position. Brilliant week of sunshine. Train very quick and convenient. Enjoyed a lovely meal at the Sea Food Café, Fore Street, but need to book.
Lovely flat, great views. Take the south coast path or drive to Godrevy for the beaches.
We have had a lovely holiday. The apartment is gorgeous, and the views of the sea and beach are stunning. The weather has been good to us. The train into St Ives was very helpful to us, we would love to stay in the apartment again. Thank you.
Excellent in all ways, could not be faulted. Try, Trebah Gardens, Telegraph Museum for a great day out.
What a beautiful apartment, such care and attentions to detail displayed throughout. We have enjoyed the most comfortable and relaxing time here, event the weather was great.
Absolutely gorgeous new decor. As always, we had a fabulous stay in this magical place. Thank you so much for sharing it.
We stayed at Emerald in early November 2017, the apartment is absolutely wonderful, the views from lounge, balcony and master bedroom are just stunning! The showers were amazing, the beds super comfy, the kitchen was more than well equipped, it’s got everything you could need and more! The sky movies and sports is a bonus! We had a wonderful long weekend and will definitely be back! We caught the so convenient train to St Ives (all of 4 minutes!) three nights running for dinner, ate at Pedn olva twice which is first restaurant along the front that you come to, highly recommended! The highlights of our trip were Porthcurno and The Minack Theatre, never seen anything so breathtaking! Thank you for a truly wonderful weekend xx
"We only got back home from Cornwall yesterday as we had another holiday rental in the Padstow area after we left Emerald.
May we just say that we had a really fantastic week in Carbis bay so much so that when we got back yesterday we checked our work holidays for early next year and rebooked for February 2016.
The apartment was as described, which is most important, very well equipped, clean and in an ideal location for us to explore in and around St. Ives.
A big thank-you to everyone involved and we are looking forward to returning next year."

“We had a wonderful stay in your lovely ‘Emerald’ apartment. A perfect location for the beach and very enjoyable walks into St Ives. The apartment itself, was beautifully clean, with comfortable beds (Had the best night’s sleep). The kitchen was fully equipped with everything one could possibly need, plus the welcome pack very much appreciated, thank you!”
"We had a very enjoyable and comfortable break in Carbis Bay. The apartment was just as described on your easy-to-navigate website and the photos of Emerald - particularly the view of the sea and the beach - inspired us to chose this apartment. Cleanliness was excellent and the apartment was well equipped with the full Sky package (which I made good use of to watch the golf, not having Sky Sports at home) and a good wireless internet connection. We made good use of the train service from the adjacent station to travel into St Ives to eat in the evening."
"We enjoyed a really good break,the sun shone, we did a lot of walking,Godrevy and the wonderful beaches all around,into St Ives along the footpath and had really good lunches in our favourite restaurants, Porthminster beach cafe,Porth Gwidden and the Sea Food Cafe--delicious! Visited Trebah gardens which was a delight and took in the excellent Far and Near exhibition at the Tate. A really good week,we like Cornwall in January when we have it almost to ourselves. Oh, almost forgot Emerald was great,clean,well equipped,warm and all with a spectacular sea view. See you next year."
"Emerald was lovely surpassing our expectations,very comfortable and superbly equipped. The proximity to the beach with its private path and close access to the branch railway is a clear advantage to visit St.Ives without a car and the views on route are to die for. We didn't believe the reports of seal sightings in the visitors book until we saw them for ourselves each evening just below the apartment 5 yards from the beach.It was wonderful to track the daily activity on the beach and the ebb and flow of the tide constantly. Emerald is truly a wonderful base from which to visit Cornwall but in itself is a balcony on a beautiful, restful, fascinating, ever changing seascape. Our favorite place has to be Mounts Bay in the late afternoon as the tide is receding and the visitors to the mount proceed in each direction on the causeway. One of our favorite eating places was Cafe Romano and Atlantic Bar on the main road to St Ives. An experience not to miss is a drink in the bar at the Carbis Bay Hotel with loads of early 20th Century history."
"We had a very enjoyable holiday, Emerald was excellent with wonderful views over the beach and sea. The administration and cleanliness was of a very high standard. I would also like to thank Kerry for helping to organise a bouquet of flowers for my wife. We enjoyed visits to Port Isaac, Padstow, Sennen Cove, excellent meal here at the Beach Restaurant and Fowey, would recommend The Food for Thought restaurant on the Quay at Fowey. "
"I would like to say, what a fantastic place to have an apartment, especially one that is as clean, well presented and well equipped as Emerald! "
"Thank you for a wonderful holiday. Emerald was beautiful and very clean, and the views are amazing! Being able to hear the sea at night and see Dolphins and Seals in the bay was fantastic. The coastal walk to St Ives was a good experience, with great views everywhere. Also visiting Godrevy to see the seals is well worth the short drive. It was a lovely touch having chocolates and champagne in the fridge too.. Can't wait to come back!"
"We had a very good week in Carbis bay, Emerald was lovely – clean, well equipped and great position – we even saw dolphins from the balcony in the bay! We had a few good meals but most have been recommended, the wave in St Ives was good and reasonable. Added to your walks, around the Minack theatre the coastal path was lovely and you can do a round walk and the telegraph museum was unexpectedly fascinating and good value (for a wet day?)"
"We had a lovely stay at The Emerald apartment it was the most amazing place, waking up in the morning with the most beautifull view.The aprtment had everything you could possibly need even down to the games in the cupboard for a rainy day."
"The apartment was completely wonderful! Firstly it was beautifully furnished and was so luxurious and spacious. And secondly was its perfect location. Not only were the views stunning but being able to open the bedroom patio doors at night and drift off to sleep (in a large comfy bed) to the sound of the waves on the beach was sheer bliss and it was this that made this the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. We can't recall a holiday where we have slept so well!! We walked into St. Ives and back frequently - fascinating walk with great views, if we were feeling lazy we'd get the very convenient train back. Plenty places to eat - we particularly liked the Wave restaurant - no view but great food."
"What can I say, an absolutely fantastic apartment, and stunning setting right by the beach. what more could you ask for ? This was a last minute decision to go away, and everything from the initial booking, standard of accommodation & cleanliness of the apartment more than met our expectations. We walked the coast path to St Ives, visited Lands End, The Lizard & Kynance Cove, and enjoyed a well earned rest. Our children even entered the sea at Carbis Bay Fully clothed in February !!! they thought it was great fun."
"We had a very enjoyable holiday at Emerald, luckily a week of good sunshine and the second week wasn't too bad either. We loved the apartment, our favourite restaurant was Alfresco although we enjoyed many others, many of which were on the notice board in the apartment. We would love to visit again."
"We had a wonderful holiday and thoroughly enjoyed staying at Emerald. The apartment was exceptional and everything we had hoped for, from dusters to jacuzzi!!! The stunning views from the lounge and master bedroom were the icing on the cake and we enjoyed sitting on balcony just watching the beach and the sea. The safe delivery of the wheelchair that I had ordered was very much appreciated, Thank you so much for delivering and collecting the wheelchair and it made a huge difference for my Aunt."

"We enjoyed the holiday in Carbis bay very much, Emerald made the whole experience a luxurious and relaxing time. Please pass on our thanks to the property owners for putting thought into every last detail to make our stay such a pleasure. We particularly enjoyed the ensuite facilities with the whirlpool bath. Carbis bay is a beautiful area with this apartment having a prime position, the view alone was worth every penny. We enjoyed a trip to Lands End and a visit to the Minnack Theatre. Parking in St Ives was very limited. so the location of the train station was very handy. The Coastal walk also made access to st ives an enjoyable journey."
"Emerald was wonderful and we will be recommending it to all of our friends and family. The great weather also helped! No faults at all. Thanks again and we hope to be in touch later in the year or next year."
"The only problem we had was having to leave the holiday accommodation when our week was up, it was a perfect week, with all we could ask for and more. From the moment of our arrival where we were greeted and shown around the apartment up to the following Saturday we had a wonderful time, with the views from the apartment being as great as we had hoped and we even saw a pod of dolphin in the bay. Thanks again for making our holiday perfect."

"The apartment exceeded our expectations and please pass on our thanks to whoever prepares it, a superb job. Hope we didn't leave too much for her/him to do!!! The facilities provided were excellent, can't say home from home, we don't have one of those fancy coffee makers!"
"We were impressed with the standard of the accommodation, the apartment was very well furnished, clean and tidy when we arrived. We had no problems finding it, and the location is ideal for exploring all of west Cornwall. We found the recommendations in the welcome folder to be very useful. I also loved flipping through the comments in the visitors' book."
"I couldn't complement the standard of the accommodation highly enough. Certainly the highest standard of self catering holiday accommodation we have experienced. Even the location was perfect."
"We had a lovely holiday and really enjoyed staying in Emerald. It was a very comfortable, spacious, clean, well equipped apartment with everything you could ever wish for especially the view, which was amazing. Everyone who has seen the photos cannot believe just how fantastic the view was and thought we had gone abroad..!"
