"This was our second time in Carbis Bay. There is something special about this part of Cornwall. We are in our 60s but feel full of energy when we are here. So peaceful calm and clean air. We still have so much to see and do so we will be back next year. Our accommodation is excellent and the views are incredible."
"We greatly enjoyed our stay in Harbour View. The apartment is spacious with an excellent modern decor. It was immaculately presented for our arrival and everything functioned really well throughout our stay. The location worked perfectly for us - we could walk down to the beach in just a few minutes and access to the coast path in both directions was also easy and quick. And the view is to die for. The beach immediately below you and a perfect outlook right over and into St Ives harbour. We never tired of it. Covered parking was good too - no seagull poo to clean off the car! We loved this apartment and would readily return to it."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Harbour View and will most certainly return, the apartment is furnished in a very tasteful and contemporary way - very much to our own taste. The whole holiday was relaxing and we give it a five star rating. Well done to the owners of this beautiful holiday home."
