Absolutely fabulous apartment holiday was great from start to finish.
"Booking the holiday was easy. We were kept informed about our holiday from the moment we booked it until we arrived. We had a warm welcome from Jo the housekeeper and the touches in the apartment were great for example the cream tea. The apartment was amazing and the views were stunning. Definitely will be returning.
" Alison Harris
An excellent choice.

"Lovely apartment, very comfortable, spacious, bright, airy and well equipped. Location very convenient for getting into St Ives plus not too far from the beach. Very enjoyable stay and hope to repeat soon!" J B
Lovely place thank you all for making last week a more memorable one.
"Apartment great, very clean had everything you would require. Easy access to st Ives via the train. Weather could have been better but didn't spoil the week. Always find Carbis Holidays places to stay first class. Thank you. Rob and Jane" Robert Quarmby
Modern well appointed apartment with vista
"An excellent week in Carbis Bay , the apartment was perfect with all appliances in a good position with all we needed.
However we could not get the heating to respond to the thermostat nor work on timer . Not a huge problem as it was a very warm flat." Anthony Storr
Hi Anthony, Thank you for your feedback and comments. Should you ever have an issue whilst staying please do contact the housekeeper or our team in the office so that we can resolve them for you. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Lovely stylish apartment
Lovely stylish, comfortable and well equipped apartment, you really have thought of everything. Had a warm welcome from Jo and welcome goodies were a really lovely touch. We had a lovely stay, loved looking out at the view. Great location for exploring the area by car, bus or train. Only criticism would be that the grout needs cleaning in the shower and silicone needs replacing around the bath. Would love to return one day. Thank you
