We had a wonderful time at Bay Retreat, it was spotless and very comfortable. We had everything we needed for a great time and with the little branch line train and beach close by it was perfect.
Thank you for a fantastic holiday would recommend to others!
See you again soon : )
A very clean, compact but comfortable, well maintained apartment. Kitted out with just about everything you would require for your stay.
Very close to the St Ives to St Earth railway, with the Carbis Bay train station approximately 3 minutes walk away.
Bit of an uphill trek to Tesco's if you don't have transport, of approximately 25 - 30 minutes, but doable if you are fairly fit and mobile.
I would recommend it and would stay again.
My only complaint is that check out time is 9 am at the latest, which I did not know till closer to the time of my visit. Mean't I had miscalculated with my train bookings and flights.
Lovely clean apartment with everything you might need within walking distance of the beach and handy for the Carbis Bay train station to St. Ives.
Lucy was only a phone call away if anything required.
Only downside if you need to receive important calls or e-mail were the very poor mobile phone signal in the flat and very poor internet at all times of the day.
Loved this apartment for the week, it's got everything you need and close to the beach and train which takes 2minutes to get into St Ives. The hill down to the beach is steep but we needed some exercise after eating in the great restaurant on the beach.
I stayed in this apartment with my mum. The apartment was perfect for our needs - good size with open plan living area. The property was very clean and well looked after. The host provided everything we needed including dish washer tablets, soap etc.
There is also a communal terrace few steps away from the front door. The view from the terrace is truly beautiful .
The location of property is really good - close to the beach (few min walk up/down the hill) and short drive to St Ives and other local attractions. Also it's near the train station which is very handy. You can take train to St Ives for £2 return instead of driving there; parking in St Ives can be a nightmare. Host provided train time table and information about local area. There is a big Tesco just few min drive from the apartment which came very handy.
Booking process was very easy and communication with the host was excellent. Deposit was return within 2days.
I would love to re visit St Ives and this property and would not hesitate to recommend it.
