September 2021

We had a wonderful stay at Rotorua apartments. It was lovely and clean and well presented. I was amazed at how well equipped the kitchen was! The beds were comfortable with nice bedding. It was a lovely surprise to arrive to tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits. Tesco and cost cutter in walking distance was a blessing. Also the beach and train only a short walk. For us personally, we would have liked a few more places to eat out on an evening but we travelled to st Ives which wasnt a big deal really. Would definitely recommend this property and Aspects. Just wish we had longer as was sorry to leave .

Holidays in Carbis Bay

If you’re looking for a holiday away from the hustle and bustle of St Ives, then consider Carbis Bay, offering a quieter location for guests. Enjoy outstanding views, relaxing on the golden sandy beach and walking the coastal path, which is perhaps the most beautiful stretch in the county.

Choose a holiday in Carbis Bay and you’ll be spoilt by endless views and a sweeping coastline. Spend your days relaxing on the beach, or walk the coastal path into St Ives. Located between Hayle and St Ives, you’ll be spoilt for places to visit, from endless golden beaches, to Cornish cafes and family attractions.

Top tip

Take a ride on the St Ives branch line, one the most picturesque train journeys in Britain!

Carbis Bay beach

A holiday in Carbis Bay means you’ll have one of the most beautiful beaches just a short walk away from your holiday cottage. With crystal-clear turquoise waters, enjoy swimming and other watersports, with kayaks and paddleboards available to hire from the watersports centre at the beach. You’ll also be in close proximity to the golden sandy beaches at Lelant and Hayle and the popular beaches in St Ives; you could try a different beach every day of the week!

Walks in Carbis Bay

Leave the car at home and take the 20 minute walk into St Ives, enjoying the views along the way. This gentle walk is a must at least once during your stay.

For nature lovers, the Steeple Woods Nature Reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife and plants. Relax and explore the forty acre space which overlooks St Ives.

For the more adventurous soul, the St Michael’s Way is a 12.5 mile trek starting at nearby Lelant, and finishing up at the stunning St Michael’s Mount in Marazion. If the walk back doesn’t seem too appealing, you can always ride the open-top bus all the way back!

St Ives

St Ives is a stunning seaside town that is only a 30 minute walk along the coastal path and easily reached through one of the most memorable and scenic train rides in the UK. The town is a thriving mixture of restaurants, galleries, quirky little shops, as well as brands we all recognise, and of course home to four stunning beaches. Spend a day exploring before retiring to Carbis Bay and relaxing in the comfort of your own home from home.

Paradise Park

Paradise Park is the perfect place for a day out with the kids. Home to over 650 birds including owls, flamingos and toucans, as well as an array of other wildlife, Paradise Park is only a few miles from Carbis Bay and hosts a variety of educational and fun events for children and adults alike to get involved with.

St Michael's Mount

Named as ‘the jewel in Cornwall’s crown’, St Michael’s Mount is a must-see on any visit to Cornwall. Take a short drive to the opposite coast and visit this famous landmark. Adventure across the cobbled causeway by foot at low tide, or climb aboard the ‘St Michael’ amphibious vehicle at high tide. Why not take a look at our live webcam of St Michael's Mount?

Lovely location,very quiet even though there are eight apartments. Very clean and comfortable would definitely stay there again.

We had a wonderful stay at Rotorua apartments. It was lovely and clean and well presented. I was amazed at how well equipped the kitchen was! The beds were comfortable with nice bedding. It was a lovely surprise to arrive to tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits. Tesco and cost cutter in walking distance was a blessing. Also the beach and train only a short walk. For us personally, we would have liked a few more places to eat out on an evening but we travelled to st Ives which wasnt a big deal really. Would definitely recommend this property and Aspects. Just wish we had longer as was sorry to leave .

Lovely apartment, 10 mins walk to Carbis Bay train station for St Ives. Apartment very clean, well equipped and comfy. 25 mins walk to Carbis Bay beach - fab beach. If you like a walk I would fully recommend.

We had a fantastic stay during the May half term (2 adults and 2 children under 8 years old). The apartment was clean and comfortable - we hadn’t slept so well in ages and it was a perfect escape following what seemed like an eternity of Covid restrictions and stress. Really well kitted out and the private parking space was a blessing. We have stayed many times in Cornwall and have realised over the years that this isn’t the norm. Carbis Bay is a 15 minute walk down the hill, manageable with children, and there is a pizza and tapas restaurant at the end of the road. We didn’t want to leave and will definitely return.

We had a lovely short break at 6 Rotorua. The flat is bright with a sunny veranda and in a quiet location. It was well equipped but with no washing machine. There is a coin operated laundry room on the ground floor. There is a parking space on site and Carbis Bay beach is within easy walking distance.

Easy booking, good communication, reasonably price, good location, accurate description of accomodation, all queries answered immediately by phone. A feeling of security in Aspects hands, a very reassuring company to deal with. The staff were very helpful and reassuring. I would highly recommend this company- Tony and Cynthia

Very nice modern apartment in an excellent location for using public transport around St Ives and the local area.

The apartment is exactly as described. It is light and airy, comfortable, clean and very well equipped. Love the balcony. Good location for links to St Ives if you don't want to drive in and face the hassle of parking there. Highly recommend - in fact have already rebooked!

The property was exactly as portrayed in the brochure. Well equipped and nice and light.

Lovely place ideal location just a small walk to bus stop with excellent bus service Downside no dressing table and balcony needs attention

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your suggestions; we have passed these on to the owners, who always like to hear guests' feedback and try to implement guests' suggestions, where possible. They have looked into dressing tables, but the bedrooms are not quite big enough to accommodate these. They have since removed the weeds from the balcony and have a regular arrangement in place for doing this and will be replacing the balcony table and chairs again soon. They replaced them last year, but unfortunately, the downside of being so close to the sea is that they rust very quickly, and there is nowhere to store them away from the elements, so whilst the owners do address this regularly, they are sorry that they had started to rust again so soon so that they did not look as nice as they normally would for you. Thanks for letting us know and we hope to see you back soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Fabulous location , perfect for a family with everything you need at your fingertips. Even the pack of cards in the drawer we’re a great addition as we’d forgotten ours. Milk was in the fridge when we arrived along with coffee and tea ( you have no idea how needed that was) lovely and clean too.

Very pleasant stay with a five minute walk to shop and buses which you could get anywhere on.
