Wonderful property, very comfortable and situated perfectly
"Sanctuary Bay is a well-equipped and comfortable cottage - one of the best we have stayed in (and we have stayed in a lot!) the facilities are excellent and the quality of the fittings and furniture very high. The convenience for us was the station a short walk away (we could leave the car for days without needing it!) and 5 minutes later be in St Ives. Recommend this property without reservation." John
Great place to stay in Carbis Bay!
"'Sanctuary Bay' in Carbis Bay was ideal for us.
The property was clean, tidy, well equipped and in excellent condition throughout with two good sized bedrooms, a large lounge/kitchen diner area, car parking space for two cars and dog friendly - it was like being 'home from home'.
The beautiful beach was within walking distance and the coastal path had some stunning views!
We will certainly be returning again next year!" David Honey
Lovely holiday property
"We had a lovely week in Sanctuary Bay. The property was clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The absence of a hair drier was rectified within 30 minutes of contacting Jo, the housekeeper - thank you. Our Westies enjoyed the beautiful walk along the coast path to Porthkidney beach and we all spent some stunning days relaxing in the sun on this extensive stretch of sand. We also loved the west facing bedroom balcony where we sat most evenings with a glass of wine, watching the sunset. Thank you to CBH. This was another easy, relaxing holiday." Jackie Symms
Perfect holiday home!
"We stayed at Sanctuary Bay for three nights and found a wonderful, stylish and very well equipped retreat for our mini holiday. The balcony was a lovely space to relax while enjoying views over Carbis Bay. Everything was immaculate and ready for our arrival.
Can't praise Carbis Bay Holidays and Jo the housekeeper enough for their help in accommodating our last minute request! Thank you." Kate R
