The house was wonderful. Four bedrooms which could have been made into twins. Three bathrooms, one ensuite which was very useful with a group of us with three children. Rod and Beta even catered excellent for our baby and provided a cot and high hair which was extremely useful. The house decor was ultra modern with an amazing top floor living dining and kitchen area with views overlooking the whole of st ives. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and excellent communication from the owners from the start. The house was close to to town centre and had spaces for at least three cars. We are just considering when to return next year. Thanks Rod and Beta for a wonderful hospitality in amazing accommodation.

The weather has been mixed but we were blessed with staying in this extremely comfortable apartment, it really is home from home and so much better than the photos suggest. Everything about it has been carefully thought out and we really appreciated the attention to detail and that the apartment was spotlessly clean. We have been visiting Cornwall for some time and we love it. This apartment is in such a superb location it really does tick all of the boxes. Carbis Bay itself is beautiful and the apartment is in a nice quiet position. There are fabulous coastal walks in both directions and we made good use of the thermos flask and picnic set. We ate out most evenings but when we did stay in it was so easy as everything we needed was there - even a rack of herbs & spices to use. The sea views from the loung are divine and we loved looking out across the gardens to the ocean, which is just mesmerising. Drawing back the curtains and seeing that view is a great way to start the day! We had some lovely lazy lunches in St Ives and visited several beach cafes - Porthminster a favourite but all were good with amazing scenery. We walked into St Ives along the coastal path several times, and after a lazy lunch and a few drinks we caught the train back (very easy). We also tried some of the restaurants in Carbis Bay and really enjoyed fish and chips from Becks, tapas from La Cassitta and we had a great pizza one lunch time from the Carbis Bay beach cafe (great view there too!) All in all a fantastically relaxing holiday in a lovely apartment. Just what we needed and can't wait to go back.
