"We attended Carbis Bay for my son's wedding, on arrival at Chy Lowen it is a lovely property with stunning views. The property was well located within an easy walk to St Ives but far enough for a peaceful stay. The property was very clean and had everything we required for our stay. The Cream tea that was left for us was a welcome treat. On our second day, Michelle our housekeeper delivered a new ironing board as she was aware we were attending a wedding, even though we had not mentioned this. This was a great help as I did not realise how many shirts required ironing. I would definitely book through Carbis Holidays again and thank you for our lovely stay in Cornwall."
“Our stay at Chy Lowen was wonderful. The accommodation was excellent, comfortable, clean very bright and airy! All the rooms had a pleasant warmth to them, especially the open plan living room, kitchen, dining room with its fire as an addition, keeping us all warm. Chy Lowen is highly rated and this was all that could let it down. However, despite this minor issue, we would certainly consider staying at Chy Lowen again and indeed book through Carbis Holidays with any future bookings. The booking procedure, website and information on properties is very informative and helpful with honest ratings to help you choose the right property. Payment with prompt e-mail confirmations and subsequent information was professional and easy. “
“I can't thank you enough for another wonderful Cornish holiday. We just love our time in Cornwall. It is so special & even although we have been many times we still find new adventures & still enjoy all the old haunts!! What makes your company very special to me is your standard of service and staff who are extremely helpful & cheery. Chy Lowen is a stunning, very clean & a well appointed property & we love it as our own! Brilliant to allow our dogs to holiday with us & still keep the high standard which is so important to me. We love coming here every year & god willing we will for many years to come. Thank all your staff involved as you are much appreciated.”
“We have just returned from Chy Lowen where we enjoyed a wonderful two week holiday. The property suited our needs perfectly. It was clean, well equipped and comfortable with a 'homely' feel - which was great for our two young granddaughters who settled into their new 'home' really quickly. We loved the views across the bay and the sunny garden gave us space to relax when we fancied a quieter time - we bought a small paddling pool and the girls played happily, splashing, filling buckets and pouring the water out. Carbis Bay has been a favourite annual holiday destination for us since 1980 and we have booked accommodation through Carbis Bay Holidays since 2003. I can honestly say that we have never been disappointed with any property we have stayed in.Thank you to everyone at CBH. We are already looking forward to next year's visits.”
"We had a fabulous time!! Chy Lowen exceeded our expectations and I would almost go to say that it was the best rental property I have ever stayed in! The property is spacious, immaculately clean, cosy yet plush and I had the best few nights sleep that ive had in months! The location was great - The service from Carbis Bay Holidays was excellent - I wouldnt hesistate to recommend this property to anyone. Thank you for an unforgettable weekend."
"We really enjoyed our stay at Chy Lowen. It was an excellent property spotlessly clean,we all as a family enjoyed the excellent facilities of the house and spending some quality time together as a family for our sons 30th birthday and enjoying the surrounding area."
"We had a wonderful holiday at Chy Lowen. The accommodation was everything we had been led to expect by your advertising, it was beautifully clean, spacious, and very well equipped. With 5 adults and one baby we had so much space coming home has been a shock! We loved the walk into St Ives, being able to walk meant that we were able to go far more often than we would have done had we to drive there. We discovered the newly opened Cafe (just before you get into Hayle), ' Birdies', I think, on the last morning which was a shame as we were very impressed with it and would have loved to have gone again. We would recommend the cafe to anyone who likes good, home-cooked food with an up to date outlook."
"We had a fantastic time at Chy Lowen and Carbis Bay. The accommodation certainly met our expectations in terms of standards and cleanliness. We were particularly impressed with some of the little touches that we were not expecting.....full Sky Package, complimentary coffee for the machine, welcome goodies, body boards......not to mention a bucket and spade! We were fortunately blessed with fantastic hot sunny weather all week which made it extra special. The views from the house were truly spectacular and we have not stopped talking about the holiday to family and friends since our return."
"Chy Lowen is a beautiful house in a great location. Furnished and equipped to a very high standard with everything you need for a perfect holiday.The welcome gifts were amazing and enjoyed by us all."
"We had an amazing holiday full of friends and family, Chy Lowen is a perfect family home from home. Blue Bar over at PorthTowan is right on the beach and both child and dog friendly with some great food and wine."
"Probably the best view we've ever had of any holiday villa we've stayed at, this includes the south of France, lake district, Devon, Germany etc. Just amazing! The house was very comfortable and had some little touches that we really loved - binoculars, really well equipped kitchen and lots of mugs, so you don't constantly have to wash up. The large fridge freezer was great and made sure we enjoyed the best of the local produce. The beds were all really comfortable and the linen good so we all slept really well. Carbis Bay is a great location, really quiet being residentail but a short walk to St Ives for all the hustle and bustle, perfect. Porthmeor beach cafe - we saw two seals swimming past whilst eating some of the best tapas and fish I've ever had . Magical! The Queens hotel St Ives - we pitched up on a rainy night and had some wonderful food, check out the menu it is just superb. And then to top it of they had an open mic night, a great time for everyone. Godolphin - we went for the bluebells and spent a great time at the property having a tour of the house and enjoying the local arts and crafts at the food and crafts fair.Glendurgan gardens - beautiful and with a great history.Clamoring over the rocks at Godrevy point and again we were joined by a seal for just a few minutes but they were very special moments.We always find Cornwall a special pace but this property made sure we could make the most of out time, even if just walking down to the beach and watching the waves roll in."

"We had a great time at Chy Lowen, Carbis Bay and St Ives. The weather wasn't great but it really didn't matter as we still found plenty to keep ourselves occupied.The property was extremely comfortable and well equipped and was of the quality and standard that we expect to receive via Carbis bay holidays. The property was clean, light and airy and contained everything we needed and more. We also ordered food via food4myholiday which was a blessing as when we arrived as it meant we had all of the basic supplies needed and some little luxuries to enjoy after a long journey. The complementary scones were great too - a lovely touch."
"We had a fabulous time in Chy Lowen at Carbis Bay, and would highly recommend the property to others. Having the en-suite baths was great, and the open feel of the kitchen and living area suited us well. We were very comfortable with six adults and a child, and the proximity of Tesco was convenient for anything we might have forgotten! The online booking process was easy, the accommodation was to a very high standard, and the property cleanliness were all superb. We enjoyed the walk down to Carbis Bay beach, and the walk through the Tregenna Castle Estate. We also visited Lands End, had a nice trip to the National Seal Sanctuary in Gweek and caught dinner one night in Padstow. All in all, a great holiday!"
"Thankyou we had a fabulous week and couldn't of wished for better weather for the time of year, fantastic meals at the Porthminster beach cafe restuarant, as was the breakfasts at the Porthmeor Beach cafe both served beautiful food at reasonable prices. We also loved the surf and beaches at Porthmeor and Perranporth and found the St. Eval go-carting and zip wiring on the same site very good as well."
"We had the perfect relaxing holiday at Chy Lowen; didn't use the car once! The level of light in the house is so uplifting even on a dull day the environment gives you a real holiday feel. The kitchen was very well equipped, the outdoor space was excellent. We really appreciated the quality throughout the house We visited the Firehouse, and a great lunch at the Porthminster Beach Cafe!"
"We really enjoyed our week in Carbis Bay. Chy Lowen was beautiful, home from home and had everything we could wish for. We liked the open plan living area and the fact that all the bedrooms had a bathroom. It was in a lovely location with wonderful sea views. Very convenient to join the coastal path and walk the very scenic route in to St Ives or down to Carbis Bay beach. The nearest footpath to do this is just down the road in Parc Owles. All the beaches around here are lovely, Porthkidney is just round from Carbis Bay Beach where dogs can go all year round, although they can go on Carbis Bay beach before 8 a.m. and after 7 p.m. Lots of nice restaurants but we would highly recommend having a meal at Porthminster Beach Cafe and we also had a nice meal at The Captain’s Table which is upstairs in The Sloop Inn. It’s a nice walk in to St Ives in the evening and easy to get a taxi back to the house if too late to walk back. We had a wonderful week with lots of walking and look forward to coming back again soon."
