"We have stayed at Seashells before and each time have been impressed by the high quality of the fittings and equipment. Carbis Bay is situated ideally for the station and we used the train both into St Ives and, also, to St Erth for onward travel to Falmouth."
Christine and Chris Barratt
"We loved the accommodation; brilliant apartment in a perfect location.. My wife thought the apartment was furnished delightfully and nice and clean throughout; very efficient in the placing of the kitchen equipment!"
“We thought the holiday apartment was super and could not ask for cleaner or better. The location overlooking the bay was just great and so easy to get into St Ives on the train or St Erth for other destinations such as Penzance. A good selection of books, games, DVD’s. The additional touch of the goodies, apple juice and carton of milk for an accompanying cup of tea was very welcome. I would be quite happy to book this apartment again in future.”
“We loved the apartment once again - spotless, provided with every item anyone would need, with that great terrace and the little touches.”
"We thought Seashells was superb: well-equipped, clean, comfortable, well placed and with superb views. We have already recommended it to others. We didn’t have to call on you for help during our stay but the general admin surrounding our holiday was very good and everything worked out perfectly."
"My daughter and i have now arrived back in Holland. We enjoyed very much our break at Carbis Bay and had a nice, relaxing time in this beautiful area. Seashells was delightful and we were very impressed by how well equipped it was."
"I would like to say that we had a fantastic stay at Sea Shells and will definitely be recommending to our friends. The property had everything that we could wish for and we really enjoyed our stay. We loved all the little touches like the toiletries, extensive library and especially the cream tea. The information pack was very comprehensive and the accommodation itself was very clean and very much a home from home with all the little extras- even a wind break to use on the beach!"
"We had a lovely week at Seashells, super, spotlessly clean and a high standard of fixtures and fittings. The double bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in anywhere! Good nights every night! We enjoyed the train being 'on the doorstep' and used it to get to St Ives and to Penzance. We also enjoyed the walk to St Ives. We were very impressed with The Tea Room on the Wharf St Ives, the food was excellent."
"My family and I had a wonderful time staying at Seashells, and it was more than we could have hoped for. The location was super, the apartment felt like a home-away-from-home. All the equipment was of quality, and we got the feeling that the place well-maintained and well-cared for."
"We had a lovely holiday and thought Seashells was a great apartment. We liked having the terrace outside and enjoyed the spaciousness of the inside. The area is stunning, we had some good coastal walks to St Ives and back along the beach from Lelant Saltings. We enjoyed a good burger at Blasburgers, we also had a good time at Paradise Park (something there for 5 year olds and 1 year olds and grown ups)."
