"This was our second stay in this house. It doesn't seem to have changed in any way! We loved it the first time and this time we felt exactly the same. First time round we had two of our children with us; it was perfect for a family, with room to spread out. Our sons remember it with great affection. My husband and I came on our own this time and, again, it felt perfect.
Standards of accommodation, hygiene, equipment and facilities are consistently high. The house is situated in a wonderful position, with the station over the road, the footpath down the cliff just across the bridge and, of course, the gorgeous beach down the hill. The rather depressing building work being carried out by the hotel on the beach detracted a little from our time down there; it's sad that a private business can own a beach - I feel that it should belong to everyone."
“Starboard was as amazing as always. I don't think we'll ever tire of the view from the lounge.“
"Starboard was, as always, magical we had a really relaxing time again. This trip we discovered Trebah Gardens which was fab (stunning gardens, excellent cafe/restaurant) well worth others checking out...and finally, it was great to be in St. Ives when The Queen visited, rounded off the holiday very nicely."
"Starboard was absolutely wonderful, the view was fantastic as you sat on the sofa looking out of the window you had the wonderful view of the sea you couldn't have asked for a better view. The interior of the property was excellent with everything you could possibly want. The administration and cleanliness of the property was also excellent as usual."
"We had a lovely holiday at Starborad, the accommodation was excellent; it was extremely clean, very well equipped and had stunning views. Our holiday shopping was also already there and unpacked when we arrived which was great. The information provided in the apt was extremely thorough and the cream tea was a lovely welcome too! We would highly recommend The Hub pub on the harbour in St Ives - the burgers are excellent and the pub was also extremely child friendly which was lovely."
"We had a wonderful week at Starboard. Accommodation was excellent,spacious and very clean. I ordered some food through food4myholiday, as recommended on your website. Their service was also first class: we arrived to find our perishable food packed in the fridge, which was a real bonus, so thanks for liaising with them to arrange this. We booked the holiday primarily as a beach holiday, so we spent about half the week on the wonderful beach. We also walked the coastal path for a trip into St Ives and another day walked in the other direction to Porth Kidney Sands, which is a fabulous stretch of almost deserted golden sands - watch out for the tides though!!"
"Starboard is a lovely property and we had a great week, thanks."
"Starboard is our FAVOURITE home in St Ives. It's location is stunning. We love being so close to the sea. Starboard itself is an amazing property and it's fun staying there, especially with the large open plan living area."
"We had a great holiday at Carbis Bay thank you, especially with excellent weather. The cleanliness of the property was excellent, the housekeeper should be commended. The property itself was great, decorated and furnished to an excellent standard which met our expectations. We would highly recommend the Seafood Cafe in St Ives, a thoroughly excellent restaurant."
"We had a great couple of weeks at Mariners Loft recently. The accommodation was of a very high standard and the location was fabulous; the views, proximity to the beach and ease of access to St Ives. We would particularly recommend The Loft and River Cafe in St Ives and further afield, Fore St restaurant in Mousehole and the National Trust cafe at Godrevy beach. For body boarding Sennon Cove is a must and we also had great waves at Harlyn bay near Padstow also in that area the views and beaches around Bedruthan Steps are just breathtaking."
"Just to let you know that everything about the holiday was perfect,in fact the best holiday in this country that we've ever had. I had stayed in Carbis Bay a couple of times before and knew of it's beauty but staying in Starboard with it's stunning views was the icing on the cake. Booking on the internet was so easy and the one telephone call I made to you was very friendly and welcoming. There was no hold up in getting in the property and the person who greeted us was warm and helpful. Have every intention of booking with you again soon."
"We had a very good holiday at Starboard, It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The fittings and finish were of a very high standard and the location suited us perfectly. We enjoyed taking the train into St Ives and not having to drive much and had good food at the Seafood Cafe with the last train home meaning we could both enjoy the wine. We went twice to watch the seals off Navax Point."
"The accommodation was fabulous - cleanliness was very good - as expected and for the first time ever the house in real life was nicer than the photo on your website!!!"
"We were delighted with the property in terms of quality, cleanliness, facilities and particularly the views. The kids loved the PS3 and gave the house 6 stars in your visitors comments book."
"I celebrated my 50th Birthday in Carbis Bay & St Ives with my immediate family and we couldn't have picked a nicer place to stay. I'm quite sure we will return to stay in this house again......the views are unbeatable. All our needs were catered for and I have to say the coffee machine was very much appreciated, by my grandson in particular!! He also loved the fact that a PS3 was provided."
