“What an amazing week! The apartment is fantastic, perfect location and we have loved it that much we will be coming back soon!”
“We have visited St Ives many times before (We got married in The Porthminster in 2012) but never Carbis Bay before. The apartment has been absolutely perfect for our stay and a great location. WE have taken the train to Porthminster most days which has been cheap and easy and takes the stress away from trying to park! Our second time using Carbis Bay Holidays and both times have been excellent. Many thanks!”

“Great apartment. Everything you need and in a great location. Would recommend Carbis Bay beach, our little ones loved the stream to play in on the beach and not too big. Train into St Ives was fantastic, great price and only about a 4 min journey. Cornwall is our favourite place to come on holiday and we will certainly be back. Thanks for a great apartment!”

"We had a great holiday Staying at the Golden Sands was a treat. We were greeted by a lovely lady to show us around. In the fridge was a cream Tea for four some milk and a bottle of apple juice, very nice touch, on the counter was a bucket and spade along with a jute shopping bag with Carbis Bay telling us these were gifts to take home with us. I was born in Saint Ives and have been holidaying with my own family for more than 20 years. This is the first time we have stayed in Carbis Bay and it won't be the last."

“The accommodation was perfect and the booking process was very simple .Carbis Bay and St Ives are stunning and I will be recommending them to friends and family.”
"We had a wonderful stay in Carbis Bay, our apartment at Golden sands really was 5 star accommodation. We walked daily into St Ives along the coastal path, we also used the local train on a couple of days, once going into Penzance. The Minack theatre was a great experience and we all enjoyed it, it was a brilliant evening out. The beach at Carbis bay was idyllic and we had a meal a couple of times at the new beachside open air bistro (which belongs to the hotel) and the service , food and ambiance was superb. We couldn’t have wished for a better weeks holiday anywhere in England."
"We found the apartment Golden Sands extremely clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the Sunday Roast at Trevaskis Farm and liked the selection of Cornish produce found at the mart. We love the selection of restaurants in St Ives and would recommend Alba, Porthmeor Cafe and Porthgwidden Cafe. As it was Easter holiday, when we didn't want to go into St Ives as it can get very busy, we had dinners at Becks Fish and Chips and Casa Romano. We would also recommend making a trip to Fowey. My 2 year old daughter felt at home at the apartment and we have enjoyed our stay."
