“Second visit - just as good as the first time!”
Reviewed November 3, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This was our second visit to Seaview and it was just as good (if not better!) than the first time. The apartment is in such a great location and we both walked and caught the train into St Ives. A quick walk down the hill and you reach Carbis Bay Beach which is fabulous and our 2 boys loved playing on the beach, despite now being teenagers! The apartment itself was just how we remembered it from last time - a well appointed kitchen and excellent wifi throughout and the biggest attraction was the space - loads of it and loads of storage too. Having 2 bathrooms was also a great benefit. Finally, the welcome pack was the best we've ever received - so thanks once again and we'll be back!!

“Fantabulous”
Reviewed October 19, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We look at other places but always come back to Seaview.

From the moment we go through the front door it's peace and tranquility. Everything you might want is there for " us" to use. We've visited quite a number of times now and when the last day actually comes and we have to leave all we talk about in the car is ...... "When can we get back again?"

Must mention the Cornish Cream Tea just sitting on the table in the kitchen waiting to be eaten ..... truly scrumptious!

What else can we say that we haven't before other than we're already starting to scheme about our next visit. Using someone else's words .... We Will Return ..... asap in our diaries.

Thank you both and a special thanks to Mum & Dad too!!!

“Breathtaking apartment.”
Reviewed October 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stunning & immaculate. Can't fault the apartment, perfectly located with beautiful views of the sea & coastline. I felt at home with all the little touches such as the welcome hamper. I would stay here every time I visit St Ives. Loved it!

“Fabulous apartment!”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

'Sea view' is the best self-catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. Located in the fantastic area of Carbis Bay, with wonderful sea views from all windows, this was just perfect as a base for a week in Cornwall. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated, with lovely furniture, curtains, bedding and towels, and a real home from home with all the appliances necessary for an easy life! The welcome pack was lovely too, so we could have a lovely Cornish Cream Tea on our arrival after a 400 mile drive, sitting on the balcony in the sunshine with a glass of wine. A wonderful week was enjoyed, by both myself and my husband, and also our daughter and her partner. Would definitely like to return!

Fantastic apartment, cosy home from home. Exceptionally well looked after with a very high standard of cleanliness. Lovely bright rooms with an amazing view from the bedrooms. Perfect location for exploring the best of Cornwall. Great value for money, we'll definitely return.

“Location, Location, Location (and a very nice apartment!)”
Reviewed September 11, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

As other reviews have said, this apartment is luxuriously fitted, spotlessly clean, and has good access to amenities such as shops etc. Furthermore, all of our communications with the owners were friendly and prompt. No problems there then. But to be honest, the thing we are most interested in when choosing a holiday is location. And what a location this place has! Would definitely stay here again (but hope for better weather next time; we had a great time with 15 degrees, but 25 degrees in Carbis Bay would have made it amazing!).

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This flat is great. It is a very high spec and was an ideal size for us. My wife, daughter (2.5 years of age) and I had a great time. The flat is 5 mins from the beach, and the local hotel is good for eating in. The train station to St Ives is 5 mins from the flat and it takes only a few mins to get into St Ives where there are many places to see and eat.
There is a local shop about 5 mins from the flat that you can get the basics in but there is a large Tesco about 10 min drive from the flat also.
Would go back.
Thanks
