"Carbis bay holiday five stars as advertised again! Lovely apartment, great facilities included giving that extra touch, e.g. garage full of beach toys, binoculars to use, special toiletries, plush towels... Lots more! Best base in Cornwall for a busy touring holiday just using nearest golden beach!"
"Ocean Cove was a lovely place to stay. Looking out over the Bay with a view you could never tire of.
The walk down to the beach was ok - the climb back meant we didn't feel guilty about having an ice cream on the beach!
The close proximity to the train station was good for trips into St Ives without the bother of finding parking.
The apartment itself was lovely and well equipped.
We hope to stay again next year!"
We have enjoyed every minute of this holiday; the view is amazing from each room and lounge. Ocean cove is a fabulous place to stay. We celebrate our birthday turning 12, Moo maids ice cream is the best, you must try. We will be back.
Perfect situated, fantastic views, home from home accommodation, going home relaxed with batteries recharged – thank you.
Our stay in Carbis Bay was fabulous. This apartment and the views are also ‘Absolutely fabulous’ this place needs 10 stars.
We come here every year and always have a fabulous time. The apartment is a haven, love the location and all the home comforts. The view is simply stunning, we never tire of it. Becks & Phillips Pasties are the best. Cornwall is the best. See you soon!
Lovely week in Ocean Cove. Lovely apartment with everything you could need and more. Will miss Carbis Bay and evening swims. Fallen in love with Cornwall. We loved the décor too and attention to detail but felt the seal in the living room has a judgemental face ha! Thank you, Carbis Bay Holidays we would recommend you and this location to all. Sad to be leaving.
Fantastic location with stunning views of sunrises and sunsets. We will be back, thank you.
This is our second time at Ocean Cove and we have loved it. The weather has been fantastic, the first time in 7 years. Views spectacular and the sea has been warm.
Fantastic views for this accommodation, comfortable beds and great en-suite facilities totally enjoyed waking up to this view every day. Not a moan – knives need sharpening and a set of scissors would be good, thank you for a lovely family holiday. Hope to be back soon.
**Owner replied: Thank you for the feedback, knives have been replaced and scissors added.
Wonderful week – fantastic accommodation with everything needed for a great stay. Love Carbis Bay and St Ives so much to see and do. We will be back.
We have had a fabulous time this week. The weather couldn’t have been better and its been a memorable birthday celebration. We have been to Carbis Bay a few times and stayed at the hotel but for a party of us this was ideal, so relaxing. What more could we want. A word of advice, if you have a pea fritter at Becks, they are enormous!
The Wallis family: It was very clean and had fantastic sea views, staff very friendly.
We enjoyed our time very much. We loved staying in this cosy flat. We would like to return soon.
"Ocean cove was truly amazing!!!! We could of been in Majorca the weather was fab!! 5 stars for definite- the rooms were so clean and high spec, beds amazing too! From the moment we got there we had such an amazing time!! Any wait to return!! There really isn't anything we could of changed to the place, just wish we had booked 2 weeks instead!"
"Our week at Ocean Cove in February was perfect, great apartment - could not want for more. Wonderful view of the beach & St Ives Bay, just a stone's throw from the beach, easy walk into St Ives & the weather was amazing. Will definitely be booking again."
"Regarding our holiday at Ocean Cove, we were very pleased with the high standard of cleanliness of the accommodation, all the little extras that were there, Sky package & HD, games,DVDs, Beach equipment - the view is stunning!! I could sit at the window all day & watch the changing colour of the sea & catching glimpses of sammy the seal, we have seen Dolphins from there before. Becks fish & Chip restaurant & takeaway still excellent value as is the Union & Castle pubs in St Ives. Perhaps if visitors are going into St Ives by train a useful tip if there are 4 travelling together is to get a 1 stop group ticket for £4 return instead of £2 each, although the sign on Carbis station does not tell you this! if there is no one in the ticket office, catch the train to St Ives & buy the tickets there!"
"Just wanted to make contact to say that it has been a few weeks since we returned from our holiday and the memories will stay with us for a long time. The amazing views of the bay were fantastic and as described. I have shown photographs to friends and they find it difficult to believe that this is part of the English Coast line. The apartment felt more like a home than holiday rentals we have used in the past and was exceptionally well appointed. The description on the web site is not over exaggerated. There was something to cater for all ages and It was particularly good to have all the things required for the beach. The proximity of the railway station meant we were able to plan days out without having to take the car and we enjoyed the local fish and chip shop which provided excellent quality at a good price.I can honestly say that we are planning to return in the near future to enjoy more of the delights that Cornwall and Ocean Cove has to offer."
