I was recommended this apartment by one of my colleagues who had stayed here previously. It didn’t disappoint – the view was the first thing we noticed, and that balcony certainly is huge.
The apartment had everything we needed as well in the apartment, very well equipped – almost better than being at home. From the gin glasses to a juicer. Nice to be inside when the UK weather doesn’t always bring you the sun. We made our way down the steps and path to the Carbis Bay Hotel for some drinks and there you can walk or get the train into St Ives. So enough places to walk and eat and drink.
Would love to stay again and thank you for a lovely stay.
I stayed at 5 Fernhill Apartments over the new year and cannot recommend it highly enough. The apartment is absolutely beautiful and everything you could wish for from a holiday home - tastefully decorated, good quality, comfortable furniture, a lovely bathroom, all combined with stunning views over Carbis Bay beach from the huge balcony. The owners really have thought of everything to make it a true home from home, with everything from a juicer to a wine decanter! We weren’t sure about staying in Carbis Bay initially, having stayed in St Ives for many years, but were recommended by friends, and we were so glad we did. The apartment is located just a few minutes’ walk from a bus stop which takes you straight into St Ives, and Carbis Bay train station is also closeby. Close enough to walk into St Ives, but far enough away to feel as though you’re away from the hustle and bustle and traffic of St Ives, it’s a really lovely location. The apartment has steps leading down to the beach where you’ll find Carbis Bay beach bar, which is great for a glass of wine overlooking the beach. We also tried the Gannet Hotel for dinner one night which was really cosy with great food, and also just a few minutes’ walk away. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t good enough for us to venture out onto the balcony this time, but we hope to return again in warmer months and enjoy breakfast watching the sun come up over the bay.
A beautifully presented apartment with all the Mod-cons you need for a relaxed home from home break. Perfect for couples or families. The fact they allow well behaved dogs to stay was the bonus for me.
Lovely coastal walks, beaches and tourist points all within walking distance or short car ride away. The view from the apartment was amazing with a cute decking area and seating - blankets provided for those colder evenings.
Lots of nice touches - Welcome gift - Slippers - Nice coffee - fluffy towels - DVD's available for those rainy days.
St Ives itself was great - lots to see and do and of course eat! spoilt for choice!
Highly recommended - we cant wait to visit again. - Thanks
Just spent a week at the apartment and was completely blown away by the high standard of finish, the location and the views! Everything you could think of is available for you, like being at home but better. Having a 17mth old there was no need to bring a cot bed as one was available, also a high chair. Balcony was an added touch, great to have an evening drink and listen to the waves. Another nice touch is the arrival gift hamper certainly kick starts your stay! I would highly recommend to stay here, quiet and close to local shops and also very close to Carbis Bay where you can enjoy the amazing beach. Can't wait to stay again!
I had a fantastic, relaxing and fun stay at 5 Fernhill. The apartment is pretty much perfect, like being in a home from home with better facilities and with the most amazing views across the bay and out to sea. The apartment in Carbis Bay is very well situated being just a 5 minute walk down the coastal pathway to the beach, a lovely bay (where I spotted a seal), and a brilliant restaurant. A bit longer but well worth doing is the stunning scenic walk into St. Ives along the coastal pathway which you find by the hotel in Carbis Bay. I would highly recommend this apartment for any sort of break away from everyday life, a surf trip, chillaxing or that romantic trip for some alone time with the one you love. The owners have done a fabulous job in making sure the apartment is kitted out with everything you would need to make a perfect holiday and Cornish Luxury Holidays maintain this dream holiday home keeping everything spotlessly clean and communicating well when required. Don't think about it, book it now!
