“First class accommodation in a great location!”

From start to finish an all round great experience. Prompt and accurate response times from the owner prior to the holiday and an informative folder in the apartment on arrival. We immediately felt at home, the accommodation was first class, spotlessly clean and tidy and in a superb location. The apartment was not just a perfect base but a really nice place to go back to and relax in the evening with the added bonus of wi-fi, dvd and satellite tv. A great place to stay in a superb location, would strongly recommend.

“Truely amazing”

Recently stayed for a week, 1st time using trip advisor and my experience was amazing. Whilst booking the apartment I had quick response from the management who was very attentive. The apartment was very clean and had everything to offer. It was like home from home. Very modernity equipped. We had both front and back patio areas with table and chairs to sit out whilst relaxing in the glorious sunshine, we was carbis bay beach was a 2min walk down hill, and a 20-3in coastal walk to st ives (which I would recommend) it's has beautiful scenery of the sea. The train station is a stone throw away. Ideal place if you love to walk and the scenery. Amazing place to stay, would highly recommend if you want a relaxing week away from the hussle and bussle of life.

The apartment was very clean and modern and nice to be in. Its a great location even though there isnt a view. That to us didnt matter as with the beach only a 2 minute walk away was perfect for either a day at the beach or just for a little chill out at night. The apartment is also next to a train station (you dnt here the trains at all) which is excellent for getting to st ives which only takes 4 minutes. We would advise going to st ives by train. Parking is a nightmare. Overall a fantastic week and would certainly go back. 10/10 if you ask me.

Had the best weekend staying at compass point. The apartment is in the perfect location and couldn't fault it. The landlord called us to check everything was ok and emailed me back quickly with any query I had. We went surfing and fishing and the weather was great. Sky tv was a great bonus, everything was clean and tidy and loved the old school telephone- nice touches!would definitely recommend and return

“Perfect Location”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a really nice stay in this apartment, couldn't think of a better location! The apartment itself was done up to a really good standard and clean, the bonus was being here for the start of the world cup with a nice large flat screen HD TV, Sky TV and a bose sound system! Lovely.

Being located literally right next the train station was great, with trains running to/from St Ives frequently, we don't mind the sound of a train going past, however if that hits a nerve than don't worry as we couldn't hear a thing. The beach at Carbis Bay is lovely too, where we live the beach is Shingle and sea a greyish blue if the weather's good, so to have a lovely golden sandy beach with lovely clean blue seawater was a treat!

As mentioned in a previous review the courtyards (the rear one especially as it's more private) would be great for BBQ's.

Oh and watch your mirrors as you park in the garage! Another thing, who was the Arsenal shirt signed by? Couldn't figure out who it could've been?

We would definitely recommend this apartment and would be more than happy to stay here again should we visit the area again.
