"We spent a fabulous two weeks at Elanora from 21st Sept. - 5th Oct. Everything about the apartment - from Danielle's welcome, the decor, the furnishings, and all the equipment was absolutely top of the range. (The motorised settee with USB charging point was a great hit - really want one for us). Everything had been thought of for a care-free holiday.
The reason for our holiday was to help in my husband's recovery from heart surgery by having plenty of rest and relaxation; which was definitely achieved after our two weeks stay at Elanora. We would love to have stayed for another week. Perhaps another time!
Chris & Roger Allen
"Our second visit to Elanora apartment Barepta Cove and once again we had the most amazing time. The apartment is beautiful with everything you can think of and more, the little touches making it so special. The views are simply spectacular and if you manage drag yourself away from the veranda, Carbis bay beach is a short walk (down a steep hill). The beach is lovely and clean and family friendly and never felt overcrowded. The train station is a few minutes’ walk from the apartment and the short journey (approx. 4 mins) to the bustling beautiful St Ives is well worth a trip. We did this several times and it was good for going out for dinner in the evening.
It is such a stunning part of the country and the location and standard of the apartment is exceptional, I’m sure we’ll be back for a third visit.
"Wonderful views, great location with amazing walks right from your door. Apartment is very well equipped with everything you need."
"This holiday home was ideal. Me, my 2 daughters and girlfriend was very happy here, the only regret was we didn't stay longer."
What can one say, I have been on a lot oh holidays abroad, e.g. Italy, but this apartment and the attention to detail beats everything. Just need to fix porch light constantly coming on and off all night, so can only give you 99/100. Many many thanks.
Steven and family
[Really sorry about the light! Thank you for letting us know - it is now fixed]

“Our 3rd year visiting this apartment and we keep coming back, as we cannot find anything to better what is on offer here! The apartment is so well maintained. The new sofas and coffee machine have added further to one’s luxury this year. Location and views are amazing, we managed to see dolphins twice. The weather was a little showery but made for some stunning rainbows over St Ives. Thank You for another wonderful stay.”

“We settled in so easily and immediately made Elanora ‘home’ for the week, in comfort and with everything available that we needed.
Miserable to be leaving this special place, especially the ‘wow’ views across the bay to St Ives and the walk to Porthkidney. Never been so relaxed until the next time…”

This was our second stay our last was in the summer, this time we stayed over the new year period and had an amazing stay, the apartment is finished to a very high standard and there is everything you could ever need, even a tape measure!!! (we had an argument about who was tallest)
We loved watching the seals (we spotted 6!) using the telescope from the warmth of the lounge, we could also see right into St Ives, and the view from the sofa's out to sea is so relaxing.
Would highly recommend, we will be back!

"We couldn't have asked for more from our visit to Carbis Bay. Our friendly housekeeper met us as agreed on our arrival and the apartment itself was beautifully presented. The Prosecco and cream tea in the fridge were also very welcome after our 9 hour journey!
We absolutely loved the view from the main room and our daughter was entertained for hours by the telescope. The whole apartment was extremely well equipped and excellently located for the train to St Ives, coastal footpath (a short scenic walk to St Ives) and beautiful sandy beach."
"A beautiful apartment with fabulous views. You can join the coastal path to St Ives just outside the garden gate. It was only a short walk to the station when we didn't feel like walking into St Ives. I like to cook and was pleasantly surprised to find there was everything I could need. Even bakeware so I could make my own cakes and Cornish cream tea. Elanora is a very stylish and comfortable apartment, the pictures really do not do it justice. The quality of the furniture and furnishings is second to none. We will definitely be back!"
"Superbly appointed luxury apartment that was perfect for a winter weekend getaway.
Fantastic views over St Ives with the glistening water in the Bay made for a relaxing and reviving weekend away. We even managed to sit out on the balcony and enjoy Al fresco sunset drinks!
The apartment is well equipped for self-catering, although we mainly visited the local restaurants during our short stay.
Easy access to the cliff walk and only a short distance to stroll to St Ives along the beautiful coast line path. The train line runs close by for those who don’t wish to walk there and back.
Brilliant weekend…. Many thanks we will be back again."
Julie and Chris
Elanora, we found to be an excellent apartment. The highlights for us were the the sea views, the zip and link beds giving us a super king size bed similar to home, well equipped and appointed and excellent parking."
"Had a great stay at this wonderful apartment. The uninterrupted views of Carbis Bay and towards St Ives are stunning and keep drawing you back to the balcony! The addition of the telescope which we used for seal watching was an added bonus!
The apartment itself is finished to a very high standard. The rooms are really spacious and the decor is modern with high quality furnishings."
We are looking forward to staying here again in the near future and cannot recommend Elanora highly enough. 10 out of 10!"
