    The owner has thought of everything to make sure you have a wonderful holiday! Fantastic facilities and oh my, that view! It will be even better when access down to the garden area resumes. Quite honestly the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in.

  • Yvonne

    The apartment was absolutely spotlessly clean,everything was exactly as it was in the pictures.It had everything you could possibly need ,including some welcome goodies,such as milk and biscuits to cling film and tupperware storage boxes. It was lovely and quiet, the view is amazing and it is situated in a perfect spot for visiting lots of different places around the area. It is in quite a hilly area so walking is not for the faint hearted and the most direct walk from to and from the beach is more than a steep climb ,so probably not doable carrying beach chairs etc ( of which there are 2 provided at the apartment ,and a windbreak,no umbrella ) it was a scramble over rocks as many Cornwall beaches are,there is a longer walk but again very steep.It is a lovely small beach but the only direct access is from Carbis Beach hotel , there is some parking ,but it was £15 a day (2023) Very easy access to St Ives via the train which is literally a stones throw away and cost £1,you could hear the train from the apartment with the windows/doors open but it never bothered us.You can get the train to Penzance too,we ran out of time so didn't get that far. The whole process from booking to handing back the keys was very smooth We genuinely can't find any fault with the apartment itself , would highly recommend it.

    The only thing we struggle with is the sofa and chairs inside the property for relaxing. They are not very comfortable for sitting for any length of time, such as watching a film etc and that is a shame if you happen to have a bad weather week which means you are spending more time in the apartment than you would normally or like us who don't stay out till late at night.
