"Everything was fabulous, Volante was probably the best yet, brilliant location (the view!), spotlessly clean and great arrangements with everyone concerned"
"We had a fantastic time at Volante. We've stayed in Carbis Bay and surrounding area quite a few times before but Volante has been by far the best so we will definitely be booking again for next year and its quite nice not to have to look around for a suitable apartment as we have now found it!! It was just like home from home, we had everything we needed and the apartment was just like home in that everything was done to a high standard even down to plates and ovenware in the kitchen. The standard of accommodation and cleanliness of the property met our expectations, it looked fantastic online and even better when we saw it."
"Volante met our expectations and then some! Perfectly situated, beautifully furnished with every need thought about, considered and catered for. The apartment was spotless when we arrived and we wallowed in luxury and soaked in the totally amazing views. "

"We had a wonderful stay in Volante in Carbis Beach. It was a great location and the apartment was simply perfect. Very many thanks for the welcome treats too which we managed to spin out for the duration! And the great coffee machine has had its effect – we had to buy one as soon as we got home! Top marks all round – administration, standard of accommodation (actually bigger than we had anticipated from the website photos – so an even bigger plus there!), and cleanliness. Couldn’t fault anything! Our thanks to you all for that."
"The overall standard of Volante was excellent with very little to be faulted. We particularly enjoyed a meal at The Loft with the food, wine and service all outstanding. Thank you for a great holiday."
"Loved the Volante property! Stunning seaviews from living area and the master bedroom. Very clean, it was lovely. We enjoyed the Coastal paths to St. Ives and Lelant. We also felt very safe and comfortable in general. We arrived by train, I would whole heartedly recommend to anyone who is looking for an apartment stay close to the Carbis bay beach and the train station. Very good."
"We were delighted with the standard of accommodation: clean and well equipped with a very polite and attentive & helpful person on arrival. The cream tea was a particularly welcome treat! Overall, i thought the whole experience from start to finish was excellent and one i will both use again myself and recommend to friends."
We did the walk to Lelant as recommended and whilst a lovely walk, it was a lot more than a “leisurely trek” along the coast path. A fit family of 4 took much longer than we were led to believe from the apartment brochure and the pub at the end was not great! As for restaurants, the Porthminster Beach Cafe was very good especially for all things fish – the scallops are worthy of note here. And finally, we all agreed we had the best burger we’ve ever had at Blas! That was fantastic. Great food, very friendly atmosphere & service and very reasonable! I only wish we’d gone earlier in the week!
In short, a fantastic week and we’ll be back!

"We are once again delighted with the service, Volante is a very spacious well laid out apartment with exceptional views over Carbis Bay Beech and out to sea. Extensively equipped, Volante more than lives up to her description providing comfort and style with all the mod cons. We were also impressed with the welcome pack."
"We had a terrific stay at Volante it had everything we needed and the view is amazing.
We took up the recommendations for restaurants, which helped us to fine dine at Seagrass and Al Fresco. The help with finding a babysitter, Leigh, was also very handy. St Ives Swimming Pool is great for babies; the PlayZone is good if you need to exhaust your children and get out of the house; Newquay Aquarium is worth a visit in bad weather, Paradise Bird park was highly recommended need to make a day of it. The cafe overlooking Portmeor beach."
"As always a great time at Volante, it's location is one of the best . In the seven years we have been coming to Carbis Bay we have always enjoyed the great beaches, restaurants, and Paradise Park....there is so much to do with two kids under 10. Kynance Cove- a stunning beach....but you need to see at low and high tide...a must. Porthcurno beach - amazing....but wait for low tide to allow you an hour walk onto the adjacent beaches. A must is the Minack Theatre morning show for kids. Typically twice a week, but a great chance to see this awesome venue, and hopefully see Squashbox Theatre Company - a brilliant show for young and old......totally recommended....get there early."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and the fantastic views from the deck at all times. The apartment is quiet and with the sound of the sea it is really relaxing. The attention to detail in the apartment is wonderful with everything you could need from ducks in the bath, a champagne bucket to a pizza cutter. Sometimes after a holiday I am glad to go home but I could have easily stayed a lot longer as everything was so clean, tasteful, luxurious etc - its a real home from home."
"Volante was fabulous, we couldn't fault one thing with the apartment, and everything about it was just fantastic. Very luxury bathrooms, the beds were comfy, the kitchen had everything one needed, and the view was amazing...We took my disabled mum, and the apartment was ideal for a disabled person, who uses walking frames and a wheelchair."
"We really enjoyed our stay at Volante - the standard of accommodation and cleanliness of the property was excellent. It was also good to have someone to greet you on arrival (a lot of other companies don't do this) and the pint of milk was very much appreciated! The location was perfect, with lovely views and an easy trip into St Ives on the train."
"This property is the subject of complete refurbishment to excellent effect and attention to detail in all areas is evident. The conscientious approach of the new owners is to be commended and the high standards achieved with the refurbishment are sure to impress guests and meet ever rising expectations."
"The four of us were very impressed with the apartment which was immaculate. Plenty of space, quality furniture and fittings and of course wonderful views over Carbis Bay Beach. Everything went like clockwork with no complaints whatsoever. We had dinner at the Porthminster Beach Restaurant, Alfresco Restaurant and the Carbis Bay Hotel. All were excellent - food, wine and ambience. We did dine in one evening on Cornish Pasties we had bought from Philps in Hayle following a recommendation from a couple of staff at M & S there! The 'Oggies' were superb. We visited the Eden Project, Porthcurno Telegraph Museum, the Minnack Theatre nearby and the Maritime Museum at Falmouth. Of course we spent time walking around St Ives using the train rather than the car or taxis to travel there from Volante. We did walk on the Coastal Path on one occasion from Carbis Bay to St Ives - a most pleasant walk once we had got over the steep climb at the beginning."
