Low Tide holiday home was completed in 2014 to an exceptionally high standard and has subsequently been awarded each year by Quality In Tourism their prestigious 5 Star rating and Gold Award for both service and quality, which has been supported by our high level of repeat customers as too their testimonials which can viewed on our website www.stivescarbisbay.co.uk

Low Tide is located in a very quiet Cul-de-Sac close to local amenities in Carbis Bay. The drive way and garden are gated making it an ideal property for families with young children or dogs. Set over 2 floors, the three double bedrooms are served by a main bathroom and master en-suite, giving you plenty of shower space while changing from beach to evening mode. The house itself is approached through a large gateway and the fully paved driveway provides masses of parking, or space to wash and dry your beach toys. Located just off the main road between St Ives and Carbis Bay you have the choice of all the towns beaches all of which are within easy walking distance, as is the town center. There is a bus stop at the end of the road and the buses run almost half hourly throughout the day all year round. 5 minutes from the A30 and a stones throw from the main road into St Ives finding Low Tide couldn't be easier.

TERMS & CONDITIONS - WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ANY BOOKING.

This Hire Agreement shall be between the Hirer and the Property Owner. The accommodation is let for the specified number of tenants only totaling a maximum of 6 people. The name of each occupant is to be listed on the booking form together with their sex and date of birth and there is to be no alteration to this list without our prior consent. The property is let on the basis that the accommodation is for holiday use only and that no rights to remain in the accommodation exist for the tenant or any person accompanying him/her on holiday. The tenancy confers upon the tenants the right to occupy for a holiday within the meaning of schedule 1, paragraph 9 of the Housing Act 1988. Should the Booking Conditions not be met, the tenant agrees to pay any additional charges incurred and we reserve the right to re-enter the property and terminate the tenancy.

We regret we cannot accept bookings from all male or all female parties more than 2 in number, or for groups of single persons under the age of 30 years. We cannot accept a change of holiday once we have received your deposit.

A "deposit against breakages" of £100 is held for each letting, and is returnable in full normally within 14 days of completion of the holiday should no loss or damage be incurred. Please ensure the booking name is correct, as the 'deposit against breakages' is returned to the person that the booking is made out to.

If due to any occurrence beyond our control the accommodation is not available as booked, e.g. fire, flood, all monies paid will be refunded in full and hirer/tenant shall have no further claim against us.

We reserve the right to amend prices/descriptions quoted due to errors and/or omissions. Whilst every effort has been made to describe as fully as possible the property, changes may have been made that have yet to be advised therefore we cannot be held responsible for any disappointment caused where a customer has differing expectations to those detailed in the description. All details are given in good faith and believed to be correct, but their accuracy is not guaranteed.

You will be pleased to note that we do allow dogs, by prior arrangement only at a cost of £50.00 per dog per week and require confirmation as to the dog’s size and bread prior to Booking.

We do not accept responsibility for work taking place outside the boundary of the property nor for any noise or nuisance arising from same. We cannot accept liability whatsoever for events that occur outside our control, such as normal breakdown of domestic appliances, plumbing, wiring and damage resulting from exceptional weather conditions. Once advised of a problem we will take immediate action to try to affect a speedy solution, minimizing any inconvenience caused.

Complaints/problems should be reported as soon as possible during occupation of the rented property. Any complaints received on departure or when you return home cannot be dealt with, as it should be appreciated that it is not possible to correct or investigate effectively at that time.

The property and premises are fully checked between lettings and any damage to the premises or equipment is fully chargeable to tenants.

Personal property is at the Hirer’s own risk and no responsibility can be accepted for loss of or damage to such items. Personal property left by the tenants can be forwarded upon receipt of a minimum handling fee of £20.00. Unclaimed articles will be disposed of after a period of 28 days. Breach of any of these conditions shall entitle the landlord/Agent to resume possession forthwith.

CANCELLATION

In the event of a cancellation, for any reason, we must firstly be advised by telephone followed by written confirmation within 7 days. We will make every effort to re-let the property at full cost (or at a reduced rate if applicable in order to re-let same). If the property can be re-let, we will refund the amount received for re-letting same less a £100.00 administration fee and the £20.00 booking fee once funds have been received for the new booking and these funds have cleared. If we are unable to re-let the property you will become liable for the full cost of the holiday.

We recommend that the Hirer takes out insurance to cover the cost of events such as losses, damage to personal belongings and cancellation. We do not accept liability for any act, neglect or default on our part or any other person not within our employ or otherwise under our control, nor for any accident, damage, loss, injury, expense or inconvenience, whether to person or property, which the Tenants or any other person may suffer or incur arising out of, or in any way connected with the letting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a lovely stay at Low Tide, ideal base for St Ives area. The best and very comfortable selfcatering we’ve stayed in. Thank you Doug very much.

Bruce & Evelyn, Berkshire, August 2014



"5 Stars to Doug and www.stivescarbisbay.co.uk! Low Tide proved to be a brilliant base for us. We should all keep this a secret but clearly everyone should make it their first choice place to stay. Doug was attentive, helpful and above all a genuine host and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you and see you again soon.

Simply The Best

  • 5 of 5

Met by Doug on arrival, shown around this immaculate holiday home, this has to be the best place we have stayed while on holiday. Attention to detail & clealiness second to none, & you can take your dog as well!! We always stay for at least 4weeks, have booked again twice already. Having Tesco just around the corner is an added bonus, St Ives a 20 minute stroll away & Doug is always on hand if needed. Would give more than 5 stars if possible!!
