"Our stay at Pelagos was very enjoyable and we were very pleased with the accommodation, which was very clean. We walked to St Ives which was an easy trip and also used the train which was very convenient although we got caught out with the timetable as not every service stops at Carbis Bay. "
"Your website made the booking a quick and easy experience. The apartment far exceeded our expectations. It was well equipped and spotlessly clean. You obviously have high standards. We will certainly be booking with you again, and will have no hesitation in recommending you to family and friends."

The views are a sheer delight. We had fabulous food at several restaurants in Carbis Bay and St Ives, Becks for fish and chips,Carbis Bay, The Seafood Cafe, Porthminster Beach Cafe and good coffee and cake at the Yellow Canary cafe in St Ives. A really fantastic night was had at the Minack Theatre, Porth Curno for 'The last night of the Proms' which was sensational !! Something we will all remember, and an evening there should not be missed. Not forgetting the very handy train service to St. Ives. Overall a truly memorable holiday. Many thanks for the excellent first class service we received from you all."

"We really liked Pelagos - it was bright and airy and the view was stunning. We visited our regular haunts - favourites being walks to St Ives, cream teas in Coasters, cornish pasties (watch out for the gulls) walks along the coastal paths, both from Carbis Bay to Hayle and St Ives towards Zennon Cove. Best eating places Porthminster Cafe/Alba restaurant/La Casita in Carbis Bay and Becks Fish and Chips!"
"We both had a wonderful time at Pelagos. It was so wonderful to see that everything in the property description was absolutely true - the view itself would have been wonderful, never mind the very well appointed apartment, the balcony which proved to be a sun trap in the afternoon, the gorgeous bathroom and bedroom, and the cream tea in the fridge when we arrived was just the thing to set the holiday off perfectly."
"We had a lovely holiday at Pelagos, the apartment was beautiful and we would definitely stay there again. The coastal walk to St Ives is very pleasant and we particularly liked the Sea Food Cafe."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our time staying in Pelagos in Carbis Bay, it definitely lived up to expectations. The view from the picture window overlooking the changing colour of the ocean and the view of St Ives is superb. The flat itself was great it contained everything we needed and more. Everything went to plan, down to all the administration, the arrival and warm welcome and the fab welcome pack including Cornish cream tea. We did walks along the costal paths from the bottom of the garden with stunning coves in both directions. St Ives itself has a really great feel about the place and is good to just meander around all the local arty shops etc. We had some of the most fantastic gastronomic food in the area which was a real surprise! The absolutely best is Porthminster Beach cafe, can't say enough about the food, coffee, view and service and experience. Also great local produce, farm shops and deli's to buy good food when eating in. Definitely want to return, have fallen in love with the area and its stunning colour, also Porthminster cafe and last but not least Pelagos. "
"Pelagos was to an exceptional standard, very high spec and the facilities were excellent. I strongly recommend The Cot Valley walk from St Just. The road is quiet and pretty and has two friendly if over curious emus in a a field. The beach at the end of the valley is stunning with huge dinosaur egg shaped stones which are great to photograph and walk over if you have good balance"
"We had a wonderful stay at Pelagos in Carbis Bay. We were most impressed with the amazing views and found the apartment lovely and clean and extremely comfortable. Julie met us on arrival and was really helpful explaining the layout of the apartment and all the equipment. The ordinance survey map that was in the drawer was an asset and we did a number of walks which had already been mentioned in the guest book. One of them was going to see the seals at Godrevy Point. We counted over 50 seals - amazing! The Alba restaurant in St Ives was excellent and we thoroughly recommend it along with the Beach Cafe at Porthminster. The Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden were well worth a visit along with the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. In fact there is a lot we didn't see so we will be back. The whole holiday was relaxing and perfect for us."

"The apartment was fabulous. No complaints about it at all, in fact I recommend it highly. It had everything that one could possibly want. Obvously the sea view from the window is second to none."
"We had a fantastic holiday and found the Pelagos excellent accommodation lovely and clean and equipped with every appliance you could need to make it a home away from home so much so i rebooked the pelagos the friday before i came home. We ate out most nights and can highly recommend The beach restaurant, The firehouse , Harbour fish and chips restaurant . Can highly recommend the Barbara Hepworth museum and paradise park in Hayle ."
"Pelagos was fabulous! The best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in! It was very clean and extremely well equipped - plenty of crockery and cutlery so that you could make use of the dishwasher without using it half full! The kitchen was fabulous containing everything you could want. Pelagos was very comfortable and and decorated to a very high standard. The view is fully 180 degrees and wonderful. Days out - St Michaels Mount, Porthcurno telegraphy Museum, Geevor Tin Mine. Don't bother with Lands End - £5 car park fee not worth it! Restaurants in St Ives - Seafood Cafe and Alfresco - both fabulous meals. "
"We very much enjoyed our week's stay in Pelagos. The flat was stylishly furnished to a very high standard - the view from the lounge was stunning ! Probably one of the best rental properties we have stayed in. Locally we especially enjoyed the following:The coastal patch to both St Ives and Lelant - so handy to come back on the train too! The Barbara Hepworth museum and the St Ives Museum. Eating out at Spinacios, Alba, Porthmeor Cafe for lunchtime tapas and Black Rock for an inventive menu. The Sloop Inn for a pint of Doom Bar ! Plus trips out to Kynance Cove, Porthcurno and Minack, Cadgewith (best Cornish pasties from the local shop at 12 midday!), the coast road to Zennor and Sennen."
"We had a lovely holiday in Pelagos and enjoyed St Ives. The apartment has such fantastic views I dont think you will find better! , it was clean and of a very good standard. It was great getting the local train from Carbis Bay to St Ives and we ate out most nights. I would recommend the Porthmeor beach cafe (opposite the Tate), lovely food and the views were stunning. We took a drive to Godrevy lighthouse, then walked around the area. It has stunning scenery and we were lucky enough to see the seals on one of the inaccessible beaches. We also went to the Geevor tin mine which we both felt was really interesting. On one hand you get to see the history of mining, but also you experience the underground tour led by an ex miner and can discover how events affected real people. On our last day we drove to Falmouth, and you can easily spend a day here pottering about , watching the boats, but we visited Pendennis Castle as well. We had the 45 minute tour which was an interesting insight into the history of the castle."
"Pelagos really lived up to our expectations: mainly the stunning views from the apartment and lovely garden."

"I really enjoyed my stay in Pelagos and was truly delighted with the accommodation. The situation of the apartment with its fantastic view from the lounge and kitchen windows over Carbis Bay beach and beyond to St Ives and Godrevy was superb and the well-maintained landscaped garden was an added bonus. I never got tired of just standing at the window enjoying the view! The flat was well appointed and the standard of cleanliness was first class . I also enjoyed walking the coastal path from Carbis Bay to St Ives station. and relaxing on the beach at Porthkidney sands."
