We were disappointed for the price that we paid. You cannot take away the fact that the views of Caribs Bay are fantastic but the accommodation is looking tired and dated. We stayed with family and there was ample space for 6 adults and 3 children. First impression was the landscaped garden which was unkempt. The kitchen just needed a good spring clean - pots and pans were greasy and needed washing before using, drawers needed a wash out. There are two lounges but at times you all need to be together but not enough seating. Property sleeps 9 but only dining chairs for 8? The cinema is laughable with a screen in the games room with classroom chairs? Our double room was kitted out with 1 large towel and 3 hand towels, a small tv but no remote! The hot tub is only accessible by going outside and down a few steps. All these gripes may only seem trivial and by no means spoilt our weekend but I'm glad I hadn't paid the high season price to stay here.
We had a fantastic stay at Birdsong over new year 2015. The house is spacious and has plenty to keep you entertained, It's is a short walk from Carbis beach and a short pleasent walk from St Ives. I would recommend the property to anyone.
I will never rent a holiday from this so called company BLUE CHIP HOLIDAYS again. They are rubbish. Please don't send details from them again. They gave us days notice that the property we had arranged to stay at was now deemed unsuitable for rental. Unbelievably disorganised.
This is the second time we have stayed here. The house is very spacious and full of amenities, including hot tub, cinema room, steam room, wi-fi, sauna and loads more besides. We are a family of grandparents, parents & children and would highly recommend staying here.
Carbis Bay station is a few minutes walk away, with a short train ride to St Ives, so no hassle with car parking there!
Carbis Bay beach is a few minutes walk away (steep hill mind), which is idyllic. On a sunny day, you couldn't wish for a better location anywhere in the world.
We will definitely be returning next year and to be honest, none of us can wait!
