"We had a great week at Tides and in St Ives. Everything from the accommodation, the service while we were there, booking process and information provided was excellent. The welcome pack was also much appreciated after the journey down. The apartment itself was exactly what we wanted and in a great location for the beaches and town. The parking space was invaluable as well. It made a big difference being able to walk to the beach and town and not worry about driving or parking."
“We enjoyed our holiday very much and would certainly book again with Carbis Bay Holidays.
The accommodation at Tides was excellent and very comfortable. The booking process was very efficient and everything about the holiday met our expectations. The welcome items in the fridge were a lovely touch after our long journey.”
"Tides was great & lovely and clean. The scones went down a treat ! Recommend a little boat trip to St Maws from Falmouth, just to potter about in the sunshine."
"We were really pleased not only with the cleanliness of the apartment but having a young daughter of just 11 months was very well equipped to help with our needs. Just like 'home from home.'. Good restaurants are Fire House, Sea Food Cafe & Ocean Grill, bars we like are Hub, Fire House for pre dinner drinks, Attic bar. A nice walk is along from St Ives to Lelant and to have lunch / dinner @ The Badger."
"We loved the spacious accommodation and everything we needed was on hand. Our daughters really liked the apartment and they are a couple of little hotel inspectors, very picky. Providing the Wii was a great touch for children, knowing it was there our girls came equipped with their favourite games. The TV and DVD player in their room prevented arguments. The quality of the soft furnishings and fixtures were excellent."

"Thank you for a lovely holiday at Tides we had a great time and a relaxing break. The apartment was delightful, clean and spacious for the four of us. It was great to have somewhere to park the car, a rare treat in St Ives, and to have an outside seating area We've previously stayed in the 'Downalong' area of St Ives and didn't realise how beautiful Porthminster beach was, especially in the evening as the sun is setting."
"Our expectations are very high, however, Carbis Bay Holidays managed to exceed those expectations in every way possible from booking, arriving, the Apartment layout and facilities as well as the cleanliness which was second to none. The location is terrific. It has been 12 years since we last visited St Ives. Thanks to you we will not be leaving it so long next time."
"We had an absolutely fabulous holiday. Our accommodation at Tides was first class, everything had been thought of. The flowers was a lovely touch, in fact we could have stayed much longer. We tried all or most of the restaurants you recommended, the Porthminster Beach Cafe was the favourite, so much so we went back again. The cleanliness was fantastic, what more can we say but hope to be back soon."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tides and were delighted with the quality of the accommodation on all counts. The apartment was well equipped and scrupulously clean. We found it to be well situated, just a short walk out of the main town, and therefore easy parking and quiet were assured throughout our stay. Many thanks to all the people who helped to make our holiday a good one."
