“Simply wonderful”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

absolutely 5* accommodation. We stayed in apartment 205 and had a wonderful balcony overlooking the beach. The view was stunning and we were lulled to sleep each night by the gentle sound of the waves and had everything we could ever need in a fabulous 2 bedroom apartment. Cannot recommend enough, however steps to apartment and a very steep hill down to beach might prove a problem for those with limited mobility. Only a 5 min trip on train to St Ives or a challenging 30 min walk (but I hate steep hills!). Loved it here and can't wait to go back

Room Tip: ground floor apartments have deck area others have balcony. All north facing so no direct sun but vi...

We booked a ground floor apartment here for our family holiday and were not disappointed. The view is quite simply stunning and the apartment itself was 5 star. Yes, they cost a bit more than other accomodation but it is worth it for the location. If we can get back to St Ives we will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ground floor have outdoor decks which give more space than the upper balconies.

Stayed in Serena over Easter - apartment is so well furnished - everything you could want, huge TV, free wifi, dvd's, books, games, white co towels (huge and fluffy), and everything in the kitchen from coffee maker through ice cream maker to bread maker, with John Lewis china and cutlery. Great view of carbis bay, and 3 minutes on the train from St Ives. Everything worked, nothing was missing :-)

Loved it, would love to go back in the summer when it was warmer !

Room Tip: Recommend Serena - it's 2nd floor so balcony rather than terrace, but it is SO well equipped and...

I have been visiting Carbis Bay Apartments for 7 years, Once or twice a year it is one of the best place we have ever visited, we love it as much as Cyprus. My profile picture is me on that beach enjoying a glass of red. Whether your after adventure or just recharging your batteries, I highly recommend you visit. Apartments are always spotless and we always choose the sea front beach apartments, You just cant beat waking up to the endless sea view. Kitchen are nice and do the trick, bedrooms are really comfy and we've always had on-suite facility's. We had an issue with our last apartment offering a whirlpool bath which it didn't have when we arrived. The management of the issue was appalling and we were offered a full refund by an employee which was retracted by management (ops director)when we arrived home and not short of being accused of lying. It would of been in my eyes a 5 star for everything but that leaves it that little bit short.

I would say hand on heart ignore my little rant at the end of the day Carbis Bay Beach apartment's are amazing, the beach is amazing (we even canoed around to st ives) you will never get tired of exploring Cornwall its truly stunning and I will certainly never get tired of sipping a glass of wine with the veranda doors opened listening to the soothing waves...

Room Tip: Make sure you get a seaview

We have just had our first stay at Carbis Beach Apartments and it was a lovely experience. We stayed in the property called 'Ivory', which was decorated and furnished to a very high standard. We booked through Carbis Bay Holidays who were very professional from start to finish. We were met at the property by a member of staff at the agreed time, nice to have a personal touch. Inside the property there was a booklet explaining everything we needed to know, very helpful. The best part was the view from the lounge and master bedroom over Carbis Bay, it was simply stunning. Not the cheapest of apartments around St Ives but you get what you pay for. Well worth the money. Also there are several different properties available for hire, all decorated and furnished in different styles to suit anyones taste. The apartments also come with an allocated parking space which many don't. 2 minute walk to train station for a short hop to St ives (£1 each way). Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

We stayed in the Volante unit (103), at Carbis Beach Apts. Beautiful views from living room and bedroom. You can actually lay in bed and enjoy the gorgeous sea view. So pretty! This property is very clean and has everything you could need. Top quality kitchen appliances. We enjoyed the patio with the table and chairs! Very close to train and the Coastal path. We recommend the Coastal path to St. Ives or even half the walk to Lelant for the pretty views over the beach below, stunning!

What can I say. 5 star views. 5 star accommodation. They have thought of everything, well equipped kitchen, books, games, wifi, sky tv. Home from home. Stayed in Volante and Saphire both ground floor.

Room Tip: Ground floor for decking / outdoor areas to enjoy those views.
