“Luxury apartment with fabulous views”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Beautifully furnished apartment which is home from home. With extras such as robes, slippers, espresso with milk frother. Has wifi, hair drier, dishwasher, washing machine.
Apartment 8 doesn't have a balcony but has two window seats and garden area which can be used.
It is a steep hill to white sand, blue flag Carbis bay beach but only about 5 min walk, and about 25 min coastal walk to St Ives with stunning views. There is a good selection of other beaches and many restaurants in St Ives.
Taxis cost approx £5 back to apartment and bus £2 per person single fare.
Great place to explore surrounding area with Lands End, St Michaels mount, Penzance within an easy drive.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment . Booking arrangements were very straightforward and any queries we had were dealt with by Kelly. Welcome hamper was nice treat with tea, coffee and pint of milk also provided.

“Fantastic Apartment - throughly recommended!”
Reviewed 10 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Me, my wife and our 2 year old stayed for 6 nights in May 2015.

The apartment was clean and well appointed, there are great views out of the window, it is ideally located for trips into St Ives (and further afield) and the apartment operator/owner (Cornish Luxury Holidays) were a pleasure to deal with.

Overall a big thumbs up!

“Lovely property in a wonderful part of the country”
Reviewed 23 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The best thing about this property is definitely the large balcony overlooking the coast. It gets plenty of sun in the morning and is so nice to sit out on for breakfast. The apartment is also close to the South West Coastal Path which goes straight to St Ives in about 25 mins' walk and is also quite close to Carbis Bay train station for trains which take 3 mins to St Ives. To the owners - please get a new tin opener, as the current one doesn't work!

“Amazing apartment, beautifully finished in a perfect location”

My husband and I stayed at 8 Fernhill in September with a couple of friends and we had a fab week! The apartment is beautifully furnished, it had everything that we needed and more. The open plan living/dining/kitchen area is really lovely and more spacious than it looks in the pictures. The window seats overlooking Carbis Bay are a lovely touch and perfect to enjoy a morning cuppa! The shower is so nice I didn't want to get out of it!

The welcome hamper was full of yummy goodies and a really nice touch. After a six hour journey is was also very much appreciated to arrive to a pint of milk in the fridge and tea bags in the cupboard!

The beds and pillows were really comfy, we normally look forward to getting back to our own bed but not here. The slippers and dressing gowns made the apartment feel extra cosy.

The apartment has lots of useful things that came in handy including the windbreak (for the beach!) and the iron/washing machine/clothes airer - it really is like a home from home.

The walk down to Carbis Bay was downhill for about 10 minutes but it was a nice walk, although could be slippy if there was wet weather so useful to wear trainers rather than flip flops. The walk uphill was a good workout but I'm 6.5 months pregnant and managed it (with a small breather halfway up!). The coastal walk to St Ives is worth doing and takes about 30-40 minutes, alternatively the walk along the road is very easy and it was nice not to have to use the car whilst we were there.

There is only parking for one car so we left one on a side street for the week and it was fine there.

Whilst we stayed we went to the Minack Theatre and ate out at Porthmeor Cafe and The Rum and Crab Shack in St Ives and we'd recommend all three of those too!

All in all a great week, we love the apartment, will recommend it to friends and look for an excuse to go back! Thank you Fernhill :-)

Liked best: The open plan layout, very comfortable beds, powerful shower and the view!
Liked least: The squeaky floorboards outside of the bathroom and the slow drainage in the bath (but we're really nit picking with these!)
