"Lovely modern apartment with a stunning view over Carbis Bay. The apartment is upside down with a very modern shower room, 2 good sized bedrooms which lead onto a private decked area. Then upstairs a very modern and very comfortable living area, a good size kitchen & dinning area then through the large patio doors a smaller but very spectacular balcony looking over Carbis Bay, on a sunny day its fantastic on another day when the Cornish weather changes it's as stunning watching a weather front coming in and passing over the bay. There is a cracking music system, DVD player, loads of DVD's, Sky Sports TV, Wii, card games, music cds and last of all some fantastic art work"
Lovely place and great views, very well equipped and the refurbishment on arrival much apricated. Really relaxing break and some really fun moments.
Stayed here numerous times. Always a pleasure, great facilities and very comfortable. Love the views! Carbis Bay beach is ideal for an early morning swim. St Ives is just idyllic and we will always come back time and time again.
Wonderful apartment, wonderful views, wonderful area. Thank you.
1st time in St Ives, had a great time at White Water, home from home. Loved the artwork and extra touches. Views from balcony, fantastic. Lots of walking, quite steep at times. Great meals at The Ganet Inn and La Casita. Also recommended the Run & Crab Shack in St Ives especially for Happy Hour!
"We very much enjoyed our holiday in White Water. Standard of accommodation was very good, clean and well equipped. The views were beautiful and could not be beaten!The interior looked great."
"We were delighted with the cottage, both in terms of cleanliness and attractiveness. The view was terrific and everything we could possibly think of was provided. The additional touches like the cream tea and the beach bag, all added to the enjoyment of our holiday."

“We had a wonderful time in Carbis Bay, White Water was clean, comfortable and very well equipped and we were very lucky to have beautiful sunny warm days which made all the difference. The booking process very very easy and customer service was excellent.”
"We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at White Water and loved the location of the holiday house, the views from the first floor sitting room were stunning, we loved the walk over the Headland to St Ives, the quality of the fittings furnishing and decorations made it feel like a 5 star hotel, we loved the large leather sofa, the kids loved the sky tv and wifi. The weather was amazing, the beach glorious and the location and views stunning, we will be back."
"We had a very enjoyable stay at White Water which was recommended to us by our son, it was very well equipped and clean. There is a very spectacular walk from Sennen Cove to Land's End along the coastal path which some people may like to do."

"White Water offered very good accommodation we were more than happy with the standard of cleanliness and the facilities provided. The living room was especially nice with the views and comfy seating. We can recommend On Shore restaurant on Wharf Road, St Ives and also The Cornish Arms along the road. A bit farther afield we went to the pub at Logans Rock, Treen which was excellent."
"We had a great holiday and found White Water very comfortable and good facilities. The view from the living room was lovely and we found the cottage very clean on our arrival. We will be looking to return again to Carbis Bay, as we thought it was a good area to stay to explore that part of Cornwall. We enjoyed a walk into St Ives, walking from Sennen Cove to Lands End along the cliff path, and body boarding at Sennen Cove. Our son enjoyed kayaking from Carbis Bay beach, and the seafood meal we had at Cafe Coast in St Ives"
"My daughter and I enjoyed our week in Carbis Bay, we went on some very enjoyable coastal walks, the highlight of which was undoubtedly the walk from Zennor to St Ives which was very challenging. We also walked from Sennen Cove to Lands End, around Porthcurno, Mousehole, Gwithian (including a spot of seal watching!) and Marazion."
"We had an absolutely fantastic holiday at White Water and would highly recommend to anyone planning a visit to the St Ives area. Having never been before we arrived to find the cottage spotlessly clean and the delicious welcome package of cream tea was so very gratefully receieved. The Visitor book (which we have written our rave reviews in) was a massive help when planning days and trips etc. Although we didn't have the best weather we had such a lovely week, the highlights included The Eden Project which was truly inspiring, a lovely day (the only sunny one) on Carbis Bay Beach was beautiful and looking out at the ocean from our double balconies. We really couldn't fault it. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen amply equipped for the days when we didn't eat out. The best meal was at The Captains Table at the Sloop Inn and I would highly recommend the scallop and crab linguine, packed with delicious seafood and fairly reasonable! We did many walks and the one to Lelant Saltings was beautiful! the coastal train rides were also lovely. Sennen Cove in Lands End is way better than Lands End itself and there is a lovely pub for food on the seafront. The dvd and sky package was excellent for rainy nights in and the Tesco supermarket was perfect for on your doorstp necessities."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at White water, the layout, decor and cleanliness were all excellent. We enjoyed many of the restaurants in St Ives, Porthminster Cafe was lovely, and Seafood Cafe was excellent, as too was Blas Burger works. We found The Atlantic Hotel ideal for drinks, very friendly staff and good choice of drinks."
"We had a fantastic holiday, White Water was beyond our expectations in every way. The coastal path to St. Ives is an obvious one (we walked it everyday and sometimes more than once). The coastal path to Lelant is also fabulous but a little more demanding and can be slippery. If the tide is out far enough, take the steps to/from Porthkidney Sands to the Artists cottage as an alternative to the coastal path in order to appreciate the spectacular beauty of this beach. The coastal route from St. Ives to Zennor stole the show followed by a pint or two at the Tinners and the bus back (to The Sloop for another!). This walk requires good footwear, reasonable fitness and fine weather. It took us around 3 hours at a steady rate. Next time we intend to walk to Penzance on the St. Michael's Way path."
"White Water was lovely and we enjoyed our stay, we would recommend the fish and chips at Porthminster Beach Cafe directly overlooking the sandy beach. We enjoyed the Bean Cafe up the road. Take your own wine so very reasonable and easy walking back. Enjoyed the much maligned Eden Project, Food at the Admiral Benbow in Penzance is plentiful and reasonable. The Loft in St Ives does a really good "early bird" evening meal with nice decor and views, probably our favourite. We have thoroughly explored St Ives and Penzance and walked many many miles. The history of the area is rich and enjoyable."
"Just wanted to let you know my family and I had a wonderful time at White Water. When we got there I walked in I thought it was very clean. Kitchen really nice and lovely rooms. I thought it was a lovely cottage, it really felt like home and still miss being there. The views were amazing, it was lovely to have a BBQ and look out towards Carbis Bay."
"We had a wonderful time staying in White Water. It was our second visit there and we enjoyed it even more the second time around. The location is perfect as we can park up and walk everywhere we need to be. We walk to the beach, St Ives or Tesco and find everything we need. The standard of furnishings is brilliant."
"White Water is beautiful and in terms of decor and objects was the closest to my own tastes of any place I’ve stayed before! The views were wonderful and it was good to have luxuries such as Sky+ - first time I’ve had that anywhere and very useful for recording things whilst you are out enjoying the sun. The house is well-appointed and was generally very clean. Overall, it was one of the better properties that I have stayed in and we had a lovely week."
"We had a fabulous holiday, the accommodation was superb and the views were stunning. It made for a very comfortable and relaxing holiday. The location had plenty of choice for restaurants and we especially enjoyed the meal at the Atlantic Wave hotel."
"White Water was a great base from which to explore Cornwall. The accommodation was modern, chic and clean. Impressed with the facilities including full Sky package and Wii console. The view of the sea was stunning. We particularly enjoyed St Ives, a very pretty town. The Barbara Hepworth Museum is worth a visit. I got some great photos. Less impressed with the Tate - but its a matter of taste and which artists are on display. There are some beautiful gardens to visit. We went to Trevarno and Trebah but there are others. Another highlight was the Lizard peninsula. The walk along the coastal path was lovely."
"Everything Carbis Bay Holidays has done has been first class, again. Also White Water is just wonderful, and maintained to a very high standard."
"I don't think that you could better the cottage. Very clean and almost all the facilities of home. Location was great; within walking distance of a corner shop, Tesco, the beach, the town (but a taxi, bus or train back) and the view is tremendous."
