“First family holiday”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We had a fantastic time, this was our first family holiday and it was perfect. The apartment was lovely, very clean and tidy with lovely views and very nice extra touches, flowers and champagne, becks fish and chip shop a 5 minute walk away, a lovely beach just a short walk away, highly recommended.

We stayed in Penthouse Apartment 25. Unbelievable views that you never tire of. Huge living space, very well equipped kitchen. Quiet area (even in August) and great that you couldn't hear next door neighbours at all. Nice extras eg champagne, scones, a picnic basket etc. Highly recommend paying that bit extra and staying here. Some lovely coastal walks and great 3 minute train journey to St Ives.

We stayed in penthouse 28. Beautiful apartment,well equipped with comfortable sofas ,great kitchen,washer/dryer, very clean with great views and good location. Lovely costal walk from Carbis beach into St. Ives or 5 minute train journey from the bottom of the hill.
We had a lovely relaxing holiday. A real home from home. Only problem we encountered was the wifi/phone signal a little hit and miss .
Our favourite restaurant was Porthmear beach cafe and also the Balcony bar overlooking st Ives harbour had a good view and great for teenagers to watch the sports On TV.

Amazing holiday apartments!! We are staying in Apartment 7 (going home tomorrow....boo hoo).....lovely views of the sea looking over Carbis Bay towards St Ives....lovely quality furnishings, lovely bathrooms and great kitchen with quality appliances.....Also, there is a Wii in the lounge, which the kids have loved....I myself loved the champagne and cream waiting for us on arrival!! Carbis Bay is a five minute walk down a hill, and the train station is couple mins down the same hill where you can get the train into st. Ives.....would definitely use these apartments again !!! Ps...if you fancy eating out and appreciate lovely food, try the Porthminster Beach Cafe in st ives....minute from train station and amazing views over Porthminster Beach.....lovely....

We stayed in one of the Garden rooms back in May. The whole experience was fantastic including the view, the cleanliness and all the furniture and equipment. I spoke to the owner a few times before our trip and he was always very polite and extremely helpful. I would not even hesitate to book another holiday there. Thank you.

This is by a long way the best holiday apartment we've stayed in - incredibly comfortable, clean, quite and very well furnished and equipped. The apartments have fabulous views across Carbis Bay and St Ives is only a 5minute train ride away or a 30 minute walk.
the only downside would be for families with very young children or people with mobility impairments who might struggle getting down to the beach or back again - otherwise I have no hesitation in recommending hawkes Point and I hope to be back again at some point

We stayed in Sea Garden Apartment 7 for a week in July 2013. Very impressed with the apartment with lovely distant views over towards St Ives. What sets Hawkes Point apart from other self catering places is the quality of all of the furniture and equipment, no expense spared and it was really appreciated. I love the style of the décor too, we didn't want to leave! The garden out the front of the garden apartments don't get any sun during the day so can only really be used when it's really warm, but the terrace at the back was sunny all day long so it was great to have the choice. We also really appreciated the fact that we were allowed to take our small dog with us to the apartment - so many places impose a blanket ban on all pets (which can be very frustrating as our dog is very small, very clean, and non-moulting!) but he loved the holiday too :-). The location of Hawkes Point is great for St Ives whilst also making it that little bit easier to get out and visit the surrounding area than if you were based in St Ives itself.
