Carbis Bay has a large, sheltered beach with perfect white sand (dogs are banned from 1st May to 30th Sept between 8am & 7pm). Patrolled by lifeguards during the summer, the calm sea and sheltered aspect ensures safe bathing - perfect for families and ideal for windsurfing and water-skiing and is an unbeatable base for discovering Cornwall. Take the scenic branch line to St Ives where you can wander through cobbled streets full of history, visit Tate St Ives (part of Tate Gallery, London) or sit by the harbour where boats still land good catches of the freshest fish for local, world class restaurants. Take a leisurely walk along the coastal footpath to Lelant or a more energetic hike to Zennor and Gunards Head. Visit National Trust houses and gardens, quaint fishing villages like Mousehole and places of beauty like The Lizard Point. Not forgetting the nearby Eden Project, Minack Theatre and Flambard's Village for the perfect family days out. Also visit the Isles of Scilly from Penzance

Carbis Bay is fantastic.

Sehr schöne, großzügige, moderne, gut ausgestattete Ferienwohnung!

Tolle Küche, schönes Bad und Intelligente Raumaufteilung.

Die Aussicht auf Carbis Bay und St. Ives ist, zu jeder Tageszeit, fantastisch. Eine schöne Überraschung war der mit Lebensmitteln gefüllte Kühlschrank, Brot, Milch, Wein und Käse.

Einkaufsmöglichkeiten im Ort vorhanden.

Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was everything we'd hoped for. Very well equipped, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Fabulous views of the Bay, lovely to wake up to regardless of the weather.

Fantastic apartment, unbeatable location!

  • 5 of 5

The views, the proximity of the beach, the space in the apartment and the communications with the landlady contributed to an absolutely brilliant Easter break.

Our children loved looking through the binoculars, or admiring the view. The house was well equipped, lovely interior & quality of towels, bedding etc. When a maintenance issue arose the landlady dealt with it promptly. Lovely welcome pack. I even got to swim with a seal in Carbis Bay!

We will definitely return!!

Fantastic, well equipped apartment in wonderful, convenient location. Gorgeous view too!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment which is handsomely furnished and very well equipped. The stunning view is also amazing, and added considerably to our enjoyment of our stay. A pair of binoculars was provided and came in very useful for boat and bird-spotting. Location-wise this apartment also comes up trumps as it is only a short walk away from the beach, train station, coastal footpaths, a couple of cafes / restaurants, convenience store and play park. We really valued the convenience of being able to pop into St Ives either on foot or by train. Carbis Bay beach is a beautiful, family friendly beach. As well as splashing around and swimming the setting is also perfect for kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. Equipment and lessons for these are available from a friendly company based on the beach.

Wonderful views, lasting memories.

  • 5 of 5

Often places have everything but little soul. This felt well loved. Very clean apartment, ample space for 8 and all you need to cater for yourself if you choose. It turned out to be my parents last holiday together but the memories will last forever. Thank you.

Carbis bay magic

  • 5 of 5

Having been to Cornwall for the last few years my partner and I decided that we wanted a relaxing stay as opposed to driving everywhere. We had visited Carbis bay before and after searching the Internet decided that Aigua Blava ticked all the boxes. We were not dissapointed when we arrived, what a fantastic and breathtaking view awaits you. The apartment was brilliant but we found ourselves returning to the view from the window to be mesmerised by the ever changing Atlantic panorama. Once we got our breaths back we toured the property and found that we were well catered for in most departments. We could go on and on about the stay here and what's available but it would only be repeating what previous visitors had written. All in all we had a very relaxing time here and would not rule out staying here again.

Plus points

. View

. Locality

. Train into St ives

. Badger pub in Lelant

. Fire house in St Ives

. Carbis bay beach

. The Old Quay House in Hayle

Negative points

. No opening windows in the bedrooms

. No contact from owner, a courtesy call would have been appreciated as the only number left was in case of emergencies. I tried to send a text and also e mailed the owner Pascal but received no reply and still haven't regarding some issues that were not emergencies but required attention.

. Overall the property needs a little TLC, bulbs replacing, batteries in the undercupboard lights etc, etc. Only little things but still enough to detract from the overall feel of the apartment.

. The Panel heaters were hopeless, only one worked and they were all out of inspection date by a year

. Living room TV has an annoying line running down the left hand side of the screen

. Only one Hand towel and Bath towel left for the weeks stay, no bath sheet supplied ( no reply to a request for some more, ended up buying some from Next!)

Sorry to paint a negative picture but just a little more attention to detail would have given the property a full 5 Star rating.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Russell and I am so pleased you had a relaxing stay at the apartment. To answer your points in order.... There are opening windows in each of the bedrooms. The main bedroom has one large opening window and the bunk room has a large opening window and a small window to the front. We do not normally contact our guests on their arrival as everything is there waiting for them to have a relaxing stay, with the large welcome pack and information file. If contact with me is necessary, I can be contacted by my mobile in the first instance and this has a message facility. My home number and email are also available for use. I am sorry that bulbs needed replacing and this is usually carried out by the changeover team before each visit. There are also spare bulbs in one of the kitchen cupboards. You are right in saying that 2 of the panel heaters have stopped working and they will be replaced in due course. Thank you for letting us know about the line down the TV screen, which is a new problem and you are the first to mention it. We will address this as soon as possible. After many years of renting we have found that our guests only require a bath sheet and hand towel, however, we would have been happy to have more towels delivered to you. I am not sure what happened with your contact but I had no message left on my mobile, home number or email. I do apologise for this and hope it didn't impact on your stay too much. Best wishes. Pascale
