“Lovely Apartment in Fantastic Location”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a super time at Azura, the apartment was very well equipped, even had beach toys and boogie boards for us to use! The location itself is great for the beach, just a short walk down a pretty little path and your there, even with a 2 and 3 year old in tow it barely took 10 minutes. The beach itself is fab, really great for young children, it has a cafe/restaurant and an ice cream kiosk as well as nice clean toilets.
There are a few places to eat nearby and a couple of shops, but there is no real centre to Carbis Bay (its all about the beach!). The train to St Ives is literally about 100 yrds away from the apartment, so that is very handy. Its also a nice easy walk to St Ives, about 20-30 mins along the coastal path (Doable with a push chair save for one set of steps over the railway).
The apartment was clean when we arrived, there was a lovely welcome pack of cream tea and wine. The communication from the owners prior to arrival was excellent. If we can face the long drive to Cornwall again we will definitely be back.

“Plenty of space and good location”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a week in the Azure and found the accommodation providing everything we needed.It had plenty of space and was modern and clean.

It is only 3 minutes to the station and costs £1 on the train into St Ives during the week. At weekends the trains are less frequent, but a taxi is only around £6 or £7. The Carbis Bay beach is excellent and is only a 5 minute walk downhill and a bit longer back up the hill.

One day we walked along the coat path into St Ives which was a very pleasant walk of around half an hour.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

What a lovely apartment this is, extremely spacious for a family of four. We had everything we needed throughout the apartment from the kitchen utensils to games to entertain the kids, even a pint of milk and cream tea when we arrived. Perfect location, the beach was only 5mins walk and what a beautiful beach . Also the train station is a couple of mins walk where you can go to St Ives for the evening,or if you wanted to walk it only takes around 20mins along the coastal path. which has many restaurants and lovely little shops.
I would definitely recommend a visit to St Michael's mount so picturesque and the Minack Theatre. We had a fabulous holiday and can not wait to return!

“Wonderful Apartment, Great Location”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My partner and I stayed at Azura for a week. Even though we were only there a short time it really felt like home. It was clean, comfortable and had everything we could reasonably need during our stay.
The location of Azura is what makes it so special. It is just a short walk to the excellent Carbis Bay beach and a short train ride to St Ives. The station is virtually on the doorstep and costs £2 return each. It's also a great base for trips to the many attractions of Cornwall.
We would recommend Azura to anybody. The perfect location for the perfect holiday.

“Wonderful, spacious, comfortable, hospitable”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

We have just spent a week in West Cornwall to celebrate our 51st wedding anniversary. The ground floor apartment, Azura, was brilliant! Greeted with a generous welcome pack, we found the apartment to be so spacious, containing everything one could possibly need. The bed was very comfortable. Nothing seemed too much trouble for the owners, even before we were due to arrive, my queries were answered comprehensively. We needed to charge our mobility scooters, which accompany us everywhere in the car, so the owner suggested the best way to do it and even left us an adaptor because the nearest power point was a bit inaccessible for us less mobile folk! How thoughtful! Mind, the scooters needed to be robust enough to cope with the Cornish hills, but the area is so very pretty. We loved the 'bike ride' into St Ives; the hill down to Carbis Bay beach, literally just round the corner from Azura, and so handy for able bodied people - and so beautiful - was just TOO steep for us! However, we recommend wholeheartedly the apartment, suitable for old and young alike. A heartfelt thank you goes to the owners for their care and consideration.

“Simply Stunning”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Stunning, Stunning, Stunning. I booked the Azura Apartment for myself, hubby and our 2 children. (3yrs & 9months) The apartment is of excellent standard. Literally a home from home. Everything you would need for a weeks stay and the little touches such as a bottle of wine and cream tea waiting for us on arrival was very much appreciated. The owners of the apartment had excellent and very helpful communication with us and made us feel that every effort had been made to make us feel welcome. Apartment spotlessly clean and very spacious - perfect for a couple or family, but the best thing about this apartment is the location!! A few minutes walk and you are on Carbis Bay Beach. Its a great base to explore beautiful Cornwall and of all the sights we were lucky enough to see in Cornwall we can honestly say Carbis Bay was the most beautiful. Book it. Go Enjoy and have hours of endless fun enjoying the beaches and picturesque setting that Cornwall has to offer. You wont be disappointed. I can't wait to visit again and I will look no further than the Azura Apartment.
