Very impressed with this home from home apartment with beautiful sea views.
Even though we didn’t have the best weather during half term it was still a lovely place to be.
Very well equipped with everything you may need - we found the family games very handy! The food hamper left for us was also a lovely touch.
Perfect location for the wonderful beaches where we were lucky enough to see seals. The train and bus into St Ives are really close so ideal to avoid driving.
If you like seafood head to the rum & crab for the seafood boil and some rum cocktails - delicious!
All in all a great base that we really didn’t want to leave!
Absolutely wonderful apartment in a fabulous location. Beach is only a few minutes walk away. Travelling to St Ives couldn't be easier with Carbis Bay station a stones throw away. A £2 return ticket meant the car stayed firmly in its allocated car parking space. We even took in a train trip to Penzance. The accommodation is truly lovely, a real home from home feel, the only problem we had was not wanting to leave when it was time to go home! We defiantly plan to return. Must mention the welcome hamper on arrival which was most appreciated after a long journey.
The apartment is stylishly furnished, with very comfortable beds and sofa. There is a track to take you to the beach in about three minutes, it is steep in parts. There are great sea views from the master bedroom and the balcony gets the afternoon sun.
After an easy journey from Newquay Airport where we picked up a hired car the detailed instructions provided by Ashley (the owner) took us directly to Seaview, No 14 Rivera Apartments. On arrival we found the first floor 2 bedroom apartment to be spotlessly clean and all furnishings and equipment to be in excellent condition. Lots of natural flooded through the large windows and patio doors. The rooms are all of very good size and the balcony of adequate proportions and furnished for four to dine (As is the kitchen and the dining area). Access to the apartment does involve steps on the sloping site and to gain entry to the first floor. The view is open accross Carbis Bay but the bay itself is obscured by trees at the other side of the neighbouring hotel's car park. The railway line is less than 10 minutes walk away and an hourly service was excellent for the 4 minute journey to St Ives. Within Carbis Bay we found a selection of restaurants with very good menus and standards of food and service all at reasonable prices. The beautiful beach is only 10 minutes walk (climb back!) where deck chairs and windbreaks and a variety of boards and boats can be hired. Altogether we very much enjoyed the location and were able to tour around the western peninsula of Cornwall, enjoy the scenery, places of interest, and an abundant choice of Cornish clotted cream teas!!!!!
This was our second visit to Seaview. We couldn't wait to come back. This is an excellent holiday apartment with modern furnishings and a beautiful view from every window. The balcony is a delight in the evening sun. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you might need. The bedrooms are roomy and very comfortable and with 2 bathrooms the whole family can be ready to enjoy the day in no time. This is a home from home and we will be back!
