"Sandy Dreams was everything we needed for our 5-night break.
Comfortable, stylish and designed to allow an easy holiday. We came to Carbis Bay about 15 years ago and we were delighted to find it just as charming and unspoilt as it was then.
Will be back sooner than 15 years this time! And will always book with Carbis Bay Holidays."
"The property was well equipped, wanted for nothing. Washing up liquid, loo rolls, kitchen roll, coffee machine, towels, everything. Clean and tidy. Carolyn the housekeeper was superb. Welcome pack, cream tea, wine and cloudy apple juice. My word, all very much enjoyed. Definitely would book again through Carbis Bay Holidays, a big thank you."

"We loved the location of this property close to Carbis Bay beach and the train station. We are a family of 2 plus 3 and this 2-bed property was just the right size. The 3 children shared 1 bedroom comfortably. There were lovely touches like milk, afternoon tea, chocolates, wine etc. That made it feel a special welcome when we got there. It had all the facilities we needed for the week including outside space to sit and dry the beach towels. Downstairs tv was a smart tv so could watch catch up tv and Netflix plus we had Wi-Fi all great touches. The area is amazing with St Ives our new favourite place in the UK, we wish we had stayed 2 weeks."
"Great facilities, good location and very clean and tidy.
Everything we needed and more. We enjoyed a perfectly happy and comfortable stay!
The stepped courtyard approach was fine for us, but would clearly prove to be an issue for anyone with mobility issues.
Would happily stay at Sandy Dreams again.
“Had a fabulous week staying at Sandy Dreams. Thank you for a pleasant stay. We will definitely book again.x”

“Have had a wonderful week in this great family friendly house! With 3 adults, 2 toddlers and a baby we fit in very comfortably! Loved the toy box in the Lounge. Built train tracks, towers and read stories. Great size utility room and hall to store our Winter boots and sand. The wshing machine is great and if you set cupboard setting it will dry all the clothes. A god send for 3 kids under 5! Wonderful fireworks display on New Year’s Eve on the harbour – glad we brought our babysitter with us. 😊 Many thanks. X”

“Stayed here for 1 week. Delighted with tne house, spotlessly clean and everything catered for, a lovely sized self contained, safe and private garden. Beautifully furnished, such a comfortable stay. House is so conveniently situated for train or coastal walks to St Ives or Porthkidney beaches and Gwithian beach only a 10 minute drive away. Fabulous beaches. A lovely week’s break”

“Lovely stay – shame about the fog! House had everything we needed. Netflix great for tired kids after day at the beach. Would recommend La Casita at the top of the hill – a bit pricey but yummy and Bookoos at Helston was a hidden gem. Enjoyed days out at Sennen , Falmouth and Penzance. Thanks!”

There are books and maps on a shelf which are great and useful showing maps and local walks, we found these useful The location is a short walk from the beach, Carbis bay is beautiful, the restaurant on the beach is lovely.
we used our car once in the whole week going to Lands End and St Michaels Mount. The coastal walk to St Ives is beautiful and takes around 30 minutes. The train home is just 3 minutes and cost just £2.40 for a family of four!"
