September 2019

This was our 3rd stay at 202 and as always it didn't disappoint,the view is fantastic (even in the rain) many an hour spent on the balcony watching the world go by. The apartment has everything you need, a total home from home,the extras of a cream tea,fruit and bottle of wine is very much appreciated. Many days the car didn't get used as the quick train journey into St Ives is a must. Will certainly be returning.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

This apartment is beautifully decorated and furnished and is spacious. Everything is thought of even beach equipment in the wardrobe. The views are outstanding and the area is quiet apart from the train which was lovely to watch chugging back and forth to St Ives. We took a friend from Canada with us who was blown away by the whole experience. Can’t wait to revisit.

Sep 2019

Excellent position near beach and station. Well equipped apartment. Spacious master bedroom with magnificent views and the sound of the sea.

Sep 2019

We have stayed in various apartments over the years we have been coming to Carbis Bay. This one is perfect - the best we’ve ever stayed in. The view is superb - I could pour a glass of wine in the kitchen at the back of the apartment & still see the wonderful view. We left the French doors in the bedroom open all night to listen to the sound of the waves - so soothing. Everything you could possibly need was provided - so many luxurious touches. There was a great welcome pack containing a Cornish cream tea & milk/wine in the fabulous American fridge. Bathrooms are very well equipped - great showers & a spa bath. We loved this apartment & will definitely be booking again.

Sep 2019

Excellently equipped, very comfortable and well located apartment with fantastic views.

Aug 2019

The view, the view, the view! Breathtaking. A wonderful apartment, and perfect location for catching the train to St Ives. We had the best of both worlds, the lively St Ives and calm Carbis Bay. Thank you to the wedding party at the hotel for the amazing fireworks display on out last night! Super end to a super holiday.

May 2019

We enjoyed our stay so much last year we had to come back again. Perfectly equipped, very comfortable with a private parking space and just a few minutes walk from the station to take you into St Ives. The views are even better now with the new glass balconies bringing the outside inside.

May 2019

Loved the security of being in a gated apartment block and having an allocated parking space.

Oct 2018

One of the best holiday's we have ever enjoyed. Opening the curtains early on a morning to the sun on Carbis bay and st Ives from a beautiful apartment bedroom was wonderful. Thank you.

Jun 2018

A fabulous apartment with great views over the bay. The apartment was very well equipped with everything we needed. Beds were extremely comfortable. Waking to the view over the sea was a memory not to be forgotten. A private reserved parking space together with easy access to the station for trains to St Ives or further afield means getting around is easy. Highly recommended.

The property was first class from the welcome hamper to the fantastic views,great to have onsite secure parking. The footpath down to the beach,and the station being a few minute walk away is great. Would definitely book this property again

Stunning property with views to match. Well eqipped and spotlessly clean. Good location meant we didn't have to use the car the whole time we were there. Fantastic property.

May 2017

A truly relaxing and picture perfect property, overlooking the best beach in Cornwall! All the mod-cons, with comfy beds, massage chair, reclining sofas, jacuzzi and great facilities. We totally switched off and loved adventuring in this most idyllic part of the country, thank you!
