Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Very well equipped apartment very close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This apartment offers all amenities necessary to have an ideal holiday in the region. The standard of cleanliness is kept at a very high level. A wealth of information is given about how to use everything available and about the most interesting sites in the region. The apartment is situated very close to the train station and also very close to the beach of Carbis Bay. Yet from the beach a steep climb will be awaiting you to return home.

Lovely apartment very clean and well equipped. Great location

  • 5 of 5

By retreat is ideally situated for quiet coastal walks or a 2 minute walk to the station takes you into St. Ives and countless eateries and attractions. Lots of places to visit up and down the coast. The apartment was very clean and very well equipped, warm and comfortable the only thing I would say is that the bedroom could do with black out curtains due to the lighting outside on the walkway. But we had a fantastic stay and would definitely recommend the apartment. Lucy was a good host and gave us lots of useful information.

Lovely apartment and a great location, very convenient for St Ives and five mins to a fabulous beach

  • 4 of 5

From my initial enquiry Lucy was very helpful and friendly. The advertisement and photos represent exactly what to expect from the property. It is quite small but well laid out and equipped and there is plenty of very helpful information included in the form of welcome packs and leaflets. The apartment has a washer/dryer which is a benefit in those wet summer days when you need to get things clean but can't hang the clothes out. The location is fantastic, a couple of minutes walk to the station with frequent trains to St Ives and 5-10 mins walk from a beautiful beach with a shop, restaurant and bar. There are activities for the children in summer and it has everything you would expect from the perfect British summer holiday!

There is so much available within 30 mins drive and even if the weather is bad and you want to head up North, it's only 50 mins drive. This is my favourite part of Cornwall 😍

The only slight downside I should mention is that the wifi wasn't that great in the apartment and on one occasion my husband had to go to the library in St Ives to send some emails.

We really enjoyed our stay here and I particularly want to thank Lucy for being the perfect host. The information prior to arrival was great and the information on arrival also helpful. Apartment was also very clean and well cared for.

Great location and very comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Carbis Bay. Bay Retreat is very comfortable, well equipped and in a perfect location. Very clean and tidy. Just a short walk from Carbis Bay train station, making a trip in to St Ives incredibly easy. The beach at Carbis Bay was lovely and very quiet while we were there, despite the great weather. Lucy was really helpful in providing additional information prior to our stay. Would definitely recommend this property.
