"Lovely holiday once again in Carbis Bay. This apartment is everything you could wish for and more. It is spotless and the rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The apartment block has gated access with an allocated parking space. A train stops just at the back of the apartment every 25 mins taking you into St Ives. The icing on the cake was the amazing view of the beach and sea from the lounge and bedroom. A lovely balcony with glass instead of railings meant you had uninterrupted views all the time. Would definitely stay here again."
"Really enjoyed our stay at Surf and Sand in June. Perfect view and delightful apartment with everything thought of. We will be returning."
"We always love our holidays in Carbis Bay and this was no exception. A lovely apartment with added little extras."

This was our 3rd visit to this apartment block and first time to 302 – It didn’t disapoint! As always, wonderful views and clean & lovely apartments. 6/7 days we had glorious sunshine, so enjoyed paddleboarding at Carbis, a walk into St Ives (train back), cream tea at Kynance Cove, a walk to Botallack to see the mines, a walk along the coast from Sennen to Lands End and found a lovely little gem of a place at The Old Forge in Lelant – great for cooked breakfast, lovely coffee and cake and they also do pizzas and wines – great!Will be back to Carbis next year! Thank you.

Thank you so much for the box of chocolates and Prosecco made Mother’s Day more special especially being away from family now , in these harrowing times. We had beautiful weather all week, wall to wall sunshine, we went for a walk on the beach-practiced social distancing. We had already booked for October and hope to be back in better times to this beautiful place.

"Watch the fireworks in St Ives from the balcony on NYE was great! It's a beautiful apartment and certainly worthy of its 5 stars. Thank you for all the 'extra's' which we appreciated and enjoyed. We will certainly be returning. Carbis Bay and surrounding area are our fabourite place in Cornwall and to have an apartment with such lovely view just makes us want to keep coming back. See you again soon"
"We've stayed in a few of the Carbis Beach apartments and this is by far the best. There was everything we needed to cook and enjoy a full Roast dinner and we had one of our best Christmas dinners ever! We really don't want to leave. Thank you so much"
"A very nice apartment with all the gadgets and great views. I think we chose well by booking this apartment. The little extra's where very nice. What a great little train to St Ives"
"Really is five star! We have been lucky enough to have stayed in a few of Carbis Beach Apartments - but this is by far the most comfortable. Thank you for all the 'little touches' that goes along way. Back next year! Thank you"
"I loved going down the lift and sitting on the balcony drinking hot chocolate. I also loved the fact that (if you don't mind me saying) we had THE BEST VIEW of the dolphins. In Mexico we swam with them, but it was lovely to see them in their natural habit. Thank you so much for the comfy pillows and this amazing experience."
Betty from The Evens Family.
"Watching the dolphins from the balcony and also seeing the marine fish basking shark swim past every day. Also going kyacking, body boarding and rock pooling. We also got to spend lots of quality time as a family."
"We have stayed in this apartment many times before under the previous owner as it was our favorite. Now we are back and I am pleased to say it still is & we have already booked again for March 2019. The little touches such as the wine, tissues and BT Sports goes a long way, small things make it stand out from the rest. A mattress topper would have been nice. I can recommend the Dorma Forever winch is full anti allergen.
"We always visit Carbis Bay atleast twice a year. Having stated in various apartments on this complex, and here under the previous owner. I must say this one stands out the most. Its not just very clean and comfortable is like walking into your own home, we love it here. Thank you so much for all the special touches for our arrival and we hope to see you again next year"
Julie & Paul - South Yorkshire
