Wunderschönes Ferienappartment

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienappartment bietet einen spektakulären Blick auf die Carbis Bay. Der Zustand der Wohnung und die Ausstattung ist sehr gut, wir haben nichts vermisst. Das wir die schönen Plätze auf der Terrasse leider nicht nutzen konnten, lag am regnerischen und stürmischen Wetter. Ansonsten wäre dies sicher ein sehr schöner Platz gewesen, um von dort z. B. die Abendstimmung mit Blick auf das Wasser zu genießen. Mit der Bahn, die fast direkt vorm Haus liegt, ist man in 3 Minuten in St.Ives. Da kann man sehr gut auf das Auto verzichten, wenn man nach St. Ives möchte. Die Informationen von Lucy waren alle sehr hilfreich. Sie hat uns zweimal besucht und immer wieder ihre Unterstützung angeboten. Eine sehr nette Betreuung. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt dort sehr genossen und können diese Unterkunft in vollem Umfang jedem empfehlen.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Lucy was there to meet us and show us in. The property is exactly as shown in the photos, which was fab. The views are to die for. The apartment was beautiful and spotlessly clean. The bed really comfy and the towels soft. Perfect. Got to everywhere we wanted by train which was great and only £1 and 4 mins into st Ives. We had a wonderful week and really didn't want to leave. Lucy is the perfect host and communication with her throughout the booking was second to none. Thanks for a week to remember and we will be back

Awesome stay in Cornish Paradise

Great kitchen, living room, bathrooms, showers and bedrooms. Lovely balcony and unbelievable view of the tropical-like beach. A cosy hideaway in paradise.

Gorgeous views in peaceful and beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property and our hostess, Lucy, was readily available from the beginning to answer all of our questions & give us loads of information and great tips. From side trips to restaurant choices, all her recommendations were amazing. The apartment is spotlessly clean and very spacious with a huge balcony and sunroom, where the views of Carbis Bay and St. Ives are just incredible. There is very little noise, even though we were there in the high season. The two bathrooms are large and modern, the kitchen is first-class, and there are plenty of activities--books, puzzles, a collection of DVDs, Internet and cable, though mostly we just looked out at the view. Also of great help, the train is a 5 minute walk downhill and it's a 4 minute inexpensive train ride to Carbis Bay. This was ideal for us because we didn't want to be in a crowded city but we wanted to be close enough to go in daily for meals and groceries. You can also catch the hop-on hop-off bus at the top of the road or walk to a Tesco's supermarket (30 minute walk), but it's a strenuous climb uphill. A note about this: this apartment requires some degree of physical fitness. It's a short climb up from the train station but not a difficult one, though if you are carrying groceries, just note there are also 2 short flights of stairs. The beach is a 5 minute walk down from the flat and it's beautiful, clear and clean, not too crowded. The coastal path route in both directions is also just a five minute walk from the place, and these walks can go along the cliffs or down to the various coves--they are simply stunning and make for wonderful exercise. There is climbing in spots but it's not that strenuous if you take your time--the views are absolutely worth it. Just remember, every time you go to the beach, you do need to come back up. There are plenty of activities in St. Ives, lots of wonderful restaurants, cafes and interesting shopping, so really the location couldn't be more ideal. If you don't want to hike to the top of Boskerris Road, you can also catch the coastal tour buses in St. Ives by taking the train in. Those tour buses are really worth it--you get a great sense of the Cornish coast.

This was an amazing property with so much to offer-loads of space & comfort, but really the best thing was having a hostess like Lucy who goes far beyond what's expected to make sure you have a wonderful experience. We gladly give it 5 stars & would stay here again!
