Carbis Bay apartment

1 bedroom • 1 bathroom • sleeps 2

“Stunning view and beautiful apartment” This apartment has everything you need for the perfect stay in Carbis Bay. Particularly liked the finer touches which really raised this apartment to another level i.e. underfloor heating, very comfortable bed, superior quality bed linen, towels, fixtures and fittings, it really does make a difference. And the sea view was incredible. The walk down to the beach and back need a certain level of fitness but there are several beaches in St Ives that can be reached by the little train or by bus from the main St Ives road, a short walk from the apartment. There is also a lovely coastal walk to St Ives which is not too strenuous (read the blog sent with your welcome email for directions to this). There are a few very good restaurants within walking distance of the apartment (we particularly liked La Calista and The Cornish Arms serves standard pub grub which is also good). Also plenty of excellent restaurants in St Ives and Ace taxis charge about £6.50 for the journey home if you cant face the walk after a night out. We would definitely stay again and can highly recommend.

“Stunning house. And that view!” Chynalls makes the most of its impressive position, with a huge picture window from the second floor living space looking down on the harbour, the Island, and taking in Godrevy lighthouse to the East. I've always loved St Ives, but it had been 12 years since my last visit, so a return was long overview. When our annual yoga break in Zakynthos was cancelled due to Covid, I decided it was time to rectify that. Our group of six absolutely loved the house, especially those of us who bagged the front bedrooms - there can be no better start to the day than sitting up in bed and opening the curtains onto that view. And said picture window upstairs was perfect for our morning sun salutations, again with the view in a starring role. It really couldn't have been nicer. More exercise was 'enjoyed' climbing the steep steps up from the town - yes, there are a lot of them, so it would not suit anyone with mobility issues. Though there is a longer way by road and there are plenty of taxis available in the town. The house is extremely well equipped, very modern and with nice touches such as kitchen basics and spices provided, as well as toiletries. And Rod, who lives next door, is very helpful and obliging - we'd been cold the first night as we couldn't work out the heating controls, but when I called the next morning he was there within two minutes to explain how it worked. My only suggestion would be that a bit more info in the book of notes would avoid him having to do that. There is plenty of parking, and we were able to store our cases in the garage on our last day so that was very convenient. All in all Chynalls was perfect for us and I really hope to return. In fact I could very happily live there.

“Lovely house, fabulous location” Had a fabulous week, there were 6 adults and a baby, the rooms are very spacious, stunning views from the 2 front bedrooms and kitchen. There was a lovely card and bottle of wine on arrival, a thoughtful touch, thank you Jon. The kitchen was very well equipped too. We loved the location with a 2 minute walk into the town and Porthminster beach. As there were 3 couples/families we had 3 cars, so we paid for 24/7 parking on the station through the council, at £38 and ìs valid for a month. We had 1 small issue the main bathroom toilet bùt Jon sorted it straight away. Just a couple of negatives for us, we had the loft room and the beds were not very comfortable you could realy feel the springs, also could have done with somewhere to hang clothes, we had to use the bunk room. That said we loved it.

“Beautiful location” The house was very warm, clean and inviting on arrival with some scones, bread and tea and coffee as an added surprise after a long drive. The house had wonderful views from the lounge and front bedroom. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything from utensils through to dishwasher tables, sponges and tea towels. We have stayed in many holiday rentals where none of these basic items are provided and it was wonderful to have these items already stocked for arrival. We did have a problem connecting with the WiFi but this was quickly rectified by contacting Rachel and this wasn’t an issue throughout the rest of our stay. The only two issues that we had was that we only managed to get parked in a designated parking bay 50% of the time, meaning we had to park on double yellow lines for the rest of the time. As we were out of season we weren’t particularly concerned about getting a parking ticket however during the high season I can imagine this being a problem and possible one that would stop us returning in the high season. The other issue was with the double mattress. It was incredibly uncomfortable, we could feel the springs and each night it felt like we kept rolling into the middle with no support. I would like to add on a positive note, that we had a delightful stay in a wonderful property.

St Ives apartment

“Wonderful Apartment” This is a very clean modern apartment situated a few minutes walk from St Ives town centre. The nearest beach which is lovely is again just a few minutes walk away. Having stayed in St Ives previously, I cannot emphasise enough what a good location this place is (and includes off road parking right outside which, in St Ives is a must). I highly recommend this apartment - whatever the weather (nearest pub/takeaways I timed at my walking pace 3 mins) and would stay again without hesitation.

“The most perfect St Ives holiday location !” Gwithian's Reach is ideally located for a holiday in St Ives. Beaches, cliff walks, pubs, restaurants are all easily within walking distance - in fact we never used the car once all week and the off-street parking was a true bonus! Having renovated numerous properties ourselves, we really appreciated the attention to detail that has been applied here. Just perfect for either a summer or winter break!

“Primrose Cottage St Ives” Very homely. Everything you would need as if at home. Milk, tea, coffe & Cream tea on arrival- very nice!! Parking an absolute bonus in StIves as very rare! Stunning views. 5-10 minute walk to anywhere- beach, shops. Road could be a little noisy in the mornings. Porthmeor beach bar right in the sea front - great cream teas, delicious tapas & elderflower prosecco. Try The Loft for an evening meal- amazing food . Balcony bar by the harbour was nice food if you're after reasonable chips/ burger/ fish. Lovely views there.

“Super stay in Cornwall” Gail was very helpful and couldnt do enough to help. Holiday park was great with a lot of entertainment provided. Accommodation was fairly small and cosy but adequate to use as a base to travel to some great nearby places. First time for us on a holiday park but would definitely come again.

“Great stay, fantastic house with plenty if interesting features. Felt like home, didn't want to leave.” Wow, fantastic views from the top floor. It is really close to town, just down a few steps. Great beach (Porthminster) nearby for walking the dog off-lead out of season. The house was very clean and comfortable. Christmas tree and decorations made it really special for us and a lovely basket of goodies including Prosseco was waiting for us in the dining room. Log burner made the evenings cosy and the kitchen was well equipped with more than everything we needed for some great meals. The en-suite bathroom was quirky, beds were really comfortable and TVs in all rooms with smart TV in the lounge. Pity the grandchildren didn't come with us as they would have loved the loft room with the narrow stairs and sloping roof - also was a great place to sit and have coffee while looking out at the harbour (binoculars were provided to see way out across to Hayle or see the people eating in the restaurants along the front in the evening). Owner was very accommodating and easy to contact. Would love to stay here again.

“We have booked again!” We arrived to a beautifully furnished clean and spacious apartment that is well equipped for a family holiday. A basket of goodies on the table was a lovely treat for all to enjoy. Carbis bay beach was wonderful for young and older children with golden sands and a fresh water river that occupied hours of fun. The railway link to St Ives made a trip out for a glass of wine by the harbour and easy option. Cornwall has a lot to offer and many fun places to explore and visit and although we visited a good many we still feel there is so much more to see. Seaview apartment is everything and more that you could wish for, well equipped and a prime location. We loved it so much that we would like to book for the following year.

About St. Ives

St Ives, Cornwall is a seaside town in the far west of the county, north of Penzance and west of Camborne on the coast of the Celtic Sea. Originally a fishing village, today the main draws are the four golden-sand beaches that are located throughout the area. Perfect for surfing, windsurfing, and waterskiing the sheltered coves and pleasant waters are teeming with tourists during the hot summers. The town itself is a collection of gift shops, cafes, and picturesque holiday cottages -- all surrounding the harbour. A maze of narrow streets and alleyways are located around the harbour, and the crescent shaped beaches. During the spring and summer months the streets of St Ives are decorated with brightly coloured flower displays. Complete with stunning vistas at every turn, artists flock to St. Ives to capture its beauty in painting, poetry, and song.

Things to do in St. Ives

The beaches are the main attraction of St. Ives - Portmeor, Porthgwidden, Porthminster, and Harbour Beaches all have distinct characteristics that make them unique, as well as make them each some of the most popular in the Cornwall region. Porthmeor Beach is the main beach in St Ives. It is a level sandy beach that is ideal for families and a favourite of surfers. Porthgwidden is a small but popular beach, with a very good cafe.

Off the beach, explore the Chapel of St. Nicholas, a small structure used for worship for hundreds of years - and a great place for bird watching. Stroll through the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden for a gorgeous display of local flora. Explore ‘downlong' aka Old St. Ives and uncover the wonders of the area throughout the maze of cobblestone streets.

Embrace the artistic history of the town and take an art class or visit one of the dozens of galleries open for business - the Tate Gallery being one of the most popular. Take a ride on the scenic railway to see gorgeous views of St. Ives.

Holiday Let near Porthmeor Beach
Fabulous apartment

Great location with parking, it didn’t disappoint. Ultra clean and very COVID safe. It’s at the top of Porthmeor Hill and perfectly located for the surfing beach which we wanted. The hills from St Ives town are very steep so it wouldn’t suit someone with poor mobility. It has a downstairs utility room with washer/dryer and room for wetsuits and boards. Anne the owner is lovely and so helpful and answers e:mails very quickly, she even let us check in a lot earlier as we were the first guests of the season (so the COVID pre-clean had been done in advance). Because of this we got an extra full day on the beach. The parking spaces in St Ives are smaller than what we’re used to up North. To give you an idea our big Discovery reached the white lines of the space. We were there first so parked it easily and then never moved for the week. There’s everything you could want in the apartment. We would definitely recommend it and would definitely stay here again. Thanks Anne, it was superb.see more

Super location

Accommodation and location ideal and parking a fantastic added bonus as parking in St Ives is limited . Apartment was clean, well presented fully equipped with everything you’d need for a relaxing holiday. Short walk into St Ives and 5 mins to Porthgwidden Beach which was ideal for swimming, relaxing and having a well deserved drink from very good facilities serving the beach. Walk back up hill through town gets the heart pumping but not a great hardship as you can rest at various points and take in the scenery or window shopsee more
Primrose Cottage, St Ives
Little piece of heaven

Graham was faultless from the initial booking and was quick to respond to any questions. The milk and biscuits for a cuppa on arrival was really thoughtful and much needed. Fully kitted out for a family of five and home from home. It was everything that we hoped it would be! Lovely and clean, spacious and a stroll down to the beach and town. The little shop opposite was so useful for milk, bread and those necessities that a family needs. The garden was great for drying the Sandy wetsuits and enjoying a glass of wine of an evening. Waking up and looking out to sea was something special everyday. Cannot speak more highly of Graham or this property and no doubt we will be back in years to come as our boys did not want to leave this place! The best booking experience by far we have experienced. Primrose Cottage was one of our happiest holidays :)see more
