“Fantastic Apartment” we stayed for 1 week in the apartment in July, the quality of the apartment is fantastic, it is equiped with everything you could possibly need for a totally relaxing & enjoyable stay. The bed is the most comfy ever.There is a lovely seating area where you can admire the views eat breakfast ,or enjoy a glass of wine . If you want a holiday where you feel totally relaxed in your accommodation book these apartments you won't be disappointed.
The views from the apartment are stunning , there is a pathway through the garden leading to Carbis bay beach , which is really lovely . The coastal walk into st ives takes about 20 mins, if you dont want to walk you can catch the local branch line this makes access into St Ives very easy, a taxi is around £ 4.50. A lovely part of the world ,with lots to see & do .
“Great location” This apartment is in a great location. It is within a few minutes walk to the train station and the fabulous Carbis Bay beach. All local amenities are close by. The apartment is very well equipped, lots of great extras.
“Fabulous home from home :)” Fantastic holiday apartment, clean and comfortable with everything we needed to have a great holiday. The scones with jam and clotted cream on arrival and the choccy biscuits for the kids were a lovely touch and went down really well with everyone after a long journey. The apartment is situated beautifully for the beach, local shops and train station and the glimpses of the sea from the living room and kitchen balcony area make for fabulous views. The apartment is very well equipped and the children made full use of the games cupboard :) We arrived before entry time in absolutely pouring rain with two v tired children and Doug and Jane allowed us straight in with no problem. So accommodating and thoughtful - thank you both! We will be back!
“Great place to stay” We have just returned from our stay at Foxgloves in Carbis Bay. Situated in a nice quiet cul-de-sac it was ideal for our stay as we have family close by. We stayed as a family of 4 with other family popping over for dinner a few times. The house is spacious and there was plenty of space even with 7 of us for dinner etc. The house itself is very stylish and everything is set up very well. There a lots of little extras which a lot of lets don't have which makes it feel like a home from home - tea, coffee, sugar etc. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need.
We would have liked some bath towels as would have saved on packing but that was a minor thing and didn't detract from our stay.
Close by the beaches at Carbis Bay and train along to Porthminster are lovely. Plenty of places to visit locally - too many to list!
Good correspondence with owner for booking etc. No problems.
Would recommend this property and would hope to return in future.
“Great place and as described in advert” Very seldom is a property as great as it is described but this property was everything and more. The views were spectacular, the house was spotless, warm, spacious and friendly. There was a good info booklet at the house describing the best eating places, with a variety of places to visit with clear directions.
The only minus was there was no washing machine to be found. Made it a bit hard as we had travelled from overseas to this property.
My rating would have been excellent except for this one point.
“Wonderful relaxing location” Apartment was wonderful and lived up to its title of "Luxury"
Fantastic view from the balcony.
Beach within 5 mins walk with bar and restaurants nearby.
St Ives town is within walking distance, takes about 30 mins to centre, or you can catch the train which runs every hour, so you can spend the evening in St Ives and catch the last train home at 10.30.
Great place great location fantastic holiday.
“Exceptional views, location and high end fitout of apartment” The apartment was spacious, well fitted out with high end furnishings and accessories, whilst the views over Carbis Bay and it location was excellent.
The onsite management were very helpful and extremely courteous, and the apartment was spotless in its presentation.
“Beautiful apartment in great location” Seaview is a lovely place to stay - spacious, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. As the weather wasn't great it was really nice to have such a comfortable base for our holiday. And the board games came in handy for passing some time waiting for the rain to stop! The location is great. A 2 minute walk to Carbis bay station which is a 5 minute train journey along the stunning coast to St Ives. Just 5 minutes' walk down the hill to the beach. Would recommend to anyone - a fab place for a holiday.
“Lovely location right by the sea!” We had a wonderful stay at this apartment in Carbis Bay. The location is perfect just a short walk down to the beautiful beach. The coastal walk to St Ives is lovely and very easy to find. The apartment itself was very clean and modern and very well kitted out with sky tv, broadband and a bose sound system! There is a little courtyard to the front and at the rear perfect for BBQ's in sunny weather. I would definitely recommend staying here we had a lovely stay.
“Perfect” Great apartment,everything you could need,spotlessly clean ,lovely views,perfect location, amazing coastal walks. Fabulous beach just a short walk as are good pubs and restaurants. Will definitely return next year.
“Wonderful” Nice and clean accomodation.
Good outdoor seating area.
Very helpful and informative owner.
10 minute walk from a lovely sandy Carbis bay beach.
We would definitely use this appartment again.
“Stunning” Great place and views to die for, kids loved it and the space allowed for us all to relax. Only critique would be the bed in the matser bedroom it wasn't very comfy. Apart from that the cleanliness, finish, attention to detail was superb and I would 100% return and also recommend.
“Jethro's Retreat, Carbis Bay” A clean and tidy 2 bedroom apartment could easily sleep 5 just a 10 minute walk from the beach and on the main bus route in and out of St Ives. Taxis were always available and cheap....St Ives was a stunning place to visit. Thorougly enjoyed our stay. Thank you, Sue.
“Superb accommodation- Excellent location” Long weekend enjoyed in top class accommodation. View stunning from lounge window. 6 hour drive will not put us off coming again. Ideal location to explore St Ives and surrounding coastline. didn't stop for a minute but came away so relaxed. Cant wait to go again!
“You have just got to stay at this apartment - it is phenomenal” I cannot praise this apartment highly enough. From the moment we stepped into the property we knew we had made the right choice. The spec of the apartment is to such a high standard, talk about that home from home feel - it was better!! The Welcome Pack was such a lovely and thoughtful touch and got our break off to an fab start. The property is in an excellent location, the view from the lounge overlooking Carbis Bay is out of this world, we couldn't wait to draw the curtains each morning. The apartment is well equipped to an incredibly high standard - absolutely everything has been thought of and the quality of every single item is beyond expectations. The kitchen is brilliant and is such a focal point - I want one! The bedrooms were spacious, plenty of storage and the beds were so extremely comfortable another example of the owners just getting it right! The location is first class, Carbis bay is on the doorstep, we loved the local train that got us into St Ives. The owners left so much information on ideas of where to eat, how to occupy our children with local places of interest to visit and things to do, we are now hooked on surfing!! We just didn't have enough time to fit it all in, so next year we are going to try for two weeks! We just could not find anything to fault - wow we had such a great holiday, thanks for letting us stay!

5 star gold Carbis Bay Apartment: 6 Sandy Lane
Such a lovely lovely apartment
We had the pleasure of staying here over the new year week and I cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful apartment. From the moment you walk in you feel right at home with all of the lovely little touches ie the welcome basket, robe and slippers. The quality of the place is outstanding. We found the location perfect for the beach, train station, restaurants and the coastal path that leads you to the very beautiful St Ives.
It is somewhere I will defiantly recommend to family and friends and we would love to return. …
Cannot fault the apartment
This is our second stay in Ashley's apartment - Comfortable, tasteful, warm, well equipped - in fact fabulous, as before in 2011. Gorgeous views from every window, it is only a short steep walk down to Carbis Bay which we did every day and the train station to St Ives is only 2 minutes away. You could manage without using the car all week but if you run out of food, Tesco is only 5 minutes away. I stayed with my daughter and my two grandchildren, boy aged 14 and girl toddler aged 2. We all enjoyed being in Seaview. Thank you, I very much hope we will be able to return next year. …
The Trick - 5* luxury apartment. Sleeps 2.
One of the best holiday apartments
Many thanks to Hawkes point for their help. The apartment was one of the best we have stayed at
They seemed to have thought of everything. On arrival afternoon tea chocolate and a bottle of fizz. Everything well equipped. Wonderful views and very close to the beach. The train to at Ives a few minutes away on foot.Extremely helpful when busy and not expensive. Watch the times of the trains. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a holiday near the coast. Worth its 5 stars. …
