We stayed in apartment 19. Agree with Tony that everything was immaculate and luxurious. The sparkling wine was a wonderful welcome after a long days travelling. Lovely balcony to view St. Ives. The train close by to catch into St. Ives rather than take the car. A good base to see Cornwall. Nothing you could want for. I've already recommended it to Australians we met along the way who were travelling to St. Ives.

We stayed in apartment 19. welcomed/greeted by Sam & CZ . In the beautiful room was Cornish Scones & wine. Apartment was immaculate, with all the top names in fittings and fixtures.

Great to just be left to enjoy the view after a long journey. Staff were so helpfull even before we got there. Felt cosy/safe behind the automatic gates.

Planned to eat out most nights in St-Ives or locally, but over our 4 days ended up staying in with fine dining from like Sainsbury's etc. Well with Vileray & Boch cutlery why not!
So close to like St Michael's mount or Penzance.

Just down the lane is Carberis Bay,and its great sandy beach, coastal walk to St Ives, just like being abroad. Train is an alternative few minutes to St Ives, or the lovely walk. this is proper 5*, not many places live up to this in our experience.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay in apartment 16. We were welcomed and shown around. There was a welcome Cornish tea and bottle of sparkling local wine. The rooms and fittings were of an excellent quality and everything worked.

If we are ever able to stay in Carbis Bay again, it will definitely be at Hawkes Point and if possible apartment 16

The wife and I stayed in apartment 28 and were very pleased with level of comfort and the luxurious surroundings. The apartment was very clean and the furnishings were of a high quality.
The bathroom and kitchen fittings were to a very high standard, and the lounge was modern and very comfortable .It was very nice apartment to come back to after a day out in the sun as it was light and cool and had wonderful views over Carbis Bay. Only negative found the balcony a bit small, otherwise had a wonderful stay.

We have stayed in many good quality apartments in the Carbis Bay Area over the last 25 years but the accommodation on offer at Hawkes Point is on another level. From first contact the team were a pleasure to deal with, the confirmation of booking was clear and informative and on arrival we were well looked after by Charles and Sam. The apartment (Starboard 29 ) was spotless and the quality of furnishings, equipment and decor were exemplary - presentation and attention to detail does no get much better than this. Nice simple touches were the Cream Tea left in the fridge on arrival along with a bottle of bubbly. Security was first class with secure gated parking and access to the apartments was a mixture of key and pin codes. Close proximity to the Carbis Bay station ment there was no point of having the hassle of trying to park in St Ives where there is a plethora of first class restaurants (don't expect to walk in off the street - all the good ones need pre booking well in advance). In summary if you are reading this and looking for a relaxing break in 5 star accommodation in the St Ives area - you have found it.

I have just returned from our 3rd stay at these fantastic luxury apartments, usually at Christmas, due to my mothers poor health we could not travel abroad and so booked the penthouse knowing with confidence that they are in a great location with amazing views across to St Ives and that they are peaceful and convenient, we were not disappointed yet again Penthouse 24 was so spacious and luxurious we di d not go out once we were able to catch the sun all day on the balcony and cooked in the spacious kitchen every evening, for the more energetic it is a great situation walking distance to beach and train station and a short drive to supermarkets and restaurants all around the team are helpful and we loved it so much we wont go abroad next year rather book another apartment here!

Room Tip: All these apartments are great, ground floor if you want more sunbathing space

We had a wonderful time at Hawkes Point. The team did everything to make our stay a perfect one, especially Sam who helped out enormously with our late booking. The apartments (Garden 6 and Apartment 19) were both immaculately clean and a pleasure to stay in. The weather was good too! We discovered Becks Fish and Chips this time around (we have stayed in various apartments at Hawkes Point over the last few years) and can really recommend them for first class fish and chips! Hawkes Point is equally great for exploring the area or just sitting on the balcony or in the garden with a glass of wine relaxing and enjoying the view! We hope to visit again later in the year.

Room Tip: Apartment 19 is very cosy and perfect for a couple with the most beautiful view as soon as you walk...
