this apartment is an absolute delight. thoughtfully and artistically decorated, spotlessly clean with great views from the windows.
On arrival there was the best welcome pack I have ever received.
the owners, Ashley and Claire have really made this a beautiful retreat for anyone visiting Cornwall.
It is well placed for the beach and the lovely coastal walk to St Ives.
a holiday we will never forget, thank you.

“Exceeds Expectations”
Reviewed September 18, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A beautiful apartment handily placed for the beach. Fully equipped with furnishings to a high standard.
Nothing appears too much trouble and a lovely touch is the welcome pack mentioned by previous reviewers. In addition, we found a wonderful bouquet for our wedding anniversary.
Thank you Ashley and Claire.

“Beautiful apartment and perfect location”
Reviewed September 2, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We booked Seaview based on previous guests feedback, as are very particular regarding cleanliness and have high expectations. On arrival the apartment was spotless with really tasteful decor. We had a welcome basket with lots of provisions including a bottle of wine which was a lovely touch. The apartment is perfectly located to Carbis Bay beach which is stunning and a small walk away from the train station that goes x1 stop into St Ives if you wish to eat out, and has a vast array of really lovely restaurants. We would recommend Burger Blas, Porthminster beach Cafe, Life Boat Inn (if you want the best sunday roast) and mount Zion for coffee lovers. We would love to return to Seaview next year and would have no hesitation to recommend this apartment. A big thank you to Ashley and Claire for a wonderful stay from start to finish.

“permanent perfection.”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Third visit, still perfection. So many thoughtful extras. e.g. there is usually a selection of chocolates in the lovely welcoming basket of food but this time it included a slab of chocolate decorated with an edible lighthouse and seashells with the wording "welcome back to Seaview". I truly believe only Ashley and Claire would think of this and shows their level of thoughtfulness. It is our favourite holiday apartment and we look forward to our holiday there each year knowing it will be kept up to its original standard.

“Seaview was Fabulous”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Having read all the reviews and wanting a view of the sea, we were not disappointed. We received prompt replies to our initial inquiry and made a booking. On our journey down we discovered we had forgotten our Eden Project tickets and phoned Ashley, the owner, he confirmed if they were posted they would arrive safely at the apartment, which they did, the next day. We loved the apartment and made use of the telescope to view the moon, on one clear night, which was fun. We found it a novelty to catch the shuttle train into St. Ives and at only £1 pp. The apartment is furnished to a high standard and made for a relaxing short stay.

“Immaculate apartment, great location, just perfect.”

Have just arrived back after spending Christmas at this lovely apartment with my husband and family. Although the weather was rather wet and wild, that did not stop us taking daily walks to either the beach or St Ives, along the coastal pathway. The owners had decorated the apartment for us, which was beautifully done, and we were given a lovely festive welcome pack on arrival, mince pies, yule log, mulled wine, chocolate. The apartment has everything you need, and is extremely cosy, we felt quite at home. Carbis Bay train station is just 2 mins from apartment, and the train runs frequently to St Ives (one stop), where there are lots of lovely restaurants, and pubs.
We would like to thank Ashley and Claire for their extremely prompt and efficient responses when making our booking, from the initial enquiry to when we returned home.
I would highly recommend this property, and hopefully we will return again soon.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

After a long half term journey down to Carbis Bay we could not have been more delighted with the apartment we where presented with on a cold blustery October evening. With it's beautiful decor it felt warm and cosy but yet there was an abundance of space for a family. To our surprise there was a lovely welcome basket including a bottle of wine which was greatly received and even milk for our morning coffee.
Our evening was rounded off by a stroll down to the Carbis Bay Hotel for bar food, where our 4 year old daughter was very welcome and entertained by a live singer, which is hard to come by especially whilst enjoy some great food.
On waking the next morning we where taken away by the views out of every window in Seaview and its close proximity to Carbis Bay itself.
I could not recommend this accommodation highly enough, for it's 5 star location, cleanliness, decor and home from home comforts - especially the fantastic king size bed which we have even ordered for our own house!
We run our own business and the Wifi worked perfectly as promised.
We cannot wait to return, although by looking at the 2014 calendar we need to book early to avoid disappointment!
