fabulous view... good location for bus right outside the door...5 minutes into st ives.... great property and Very comfortable... what's not to like!!!

Great little apartment with sea views, bus routes very close & train not too far a walk

Carbis Days is a beautiful property that literally is a home away from home, decorated tastefully throughout. We visited as a family of 3 and it was perfect for us in terms of location and facilities.

A short bus ride takes you to St Ives very swiftly and Tesco is within walking distance.

We loved that Carbis Bay was quieter than bustling St Ives. It was a haven of peace at the end of each day.

Carbis Bay Beach is about a 10 minute walk and gets your heart pumping - there and back! If you haven't visited before, there are some steep inclines, so be aware of this if you intend on making the walk. The beach there is serene and wasn't very busy in comparison to the beaches at St Ives.

We look forward to returning to the area again - it is all I can think about since arriving home!

Super apartment- well equipped and comfortable in a great location. Lovely decoration and perfect for our needs. Will definitely consider rebooking if we come back to the area.

Small but comfortable apartment. Well placed to explore the local area, with good public transport and a large supermarket nearby.

Great location - easy to walk to Carbis Bay beach. Easy to walk, drive, catch the train to St Ives. A great little base for your holiday.
