“Wonderful place to stay”

We had really good two weeks in this spacious apartment . Top floor nobody jumping on your head, super clean and Peter was really helpful . Apartment has air conditioning in each room separate from each other. So for kid we did a little warmer and for adults you can do cooler. I like it. Two bathrooms with really strong pressure showers really convenient. Washer / dryer on the first floor. Little garden around the building with security man by the gate. 5 minutes walk to the cabacum beach. In My opinion this beach much better smaller less noise and prices for food drink and everything else tree times cheaper than golden sands. On the way to the beach you can find very tasty restaurant Casa Ole with life music everyday you can dance and enjoy good Bulgarian food meat and lots of seafood. Also other restaurants around for every taste. If you wish to go to golden sand beach use taxi 5 minutes and you are there. We can't wait to come back next summer. Thank you Peter.

“Excellent”
Reviewed September 20, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We spent a really nice week in this apartment. It is beautiful and comfortable with all that we can need. Moreover, we were located well. There is a 24 hour shop just outside the apartment and the beach is few minute to walk with many close restaurants.
The staff is very friendly, making sure that the gym, sauna, hammam and pool are clean and available.
We spent an EXCELLENT stay!

Thank you Peter

“Lovely spacious apartment”
Reviewed August 28, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We vacationed in Bulgaria at the Riviera Penthouse this summer for about two weeks and had an absolutely wonderful time!
The apartment is located within walking distance to the beach. There are many restaurants with variety of foods to offer, shops(some open non-stop),exchange bureau, taxi station located only a few yards away.
The Penthouse has a very nice modern design,decorated with higher quality furnishings, was very clean and we had everything needed for our stay and more. The kitchen is well equipped. Coffee maker and toaster were a great bonus to have in the morning to prep breakfast.
We felt very safe in the building. It has surveillance cameras and the guards are present at all times.Our kids had fun having the freedom to go downstairs by themselves and play with other children. The entire area In the Journalist felt very safe, at night the streets were lit well - we did not have any safety concerns whatsoever.
It was such a pleasure to deal with Peter, the owner, and we appreciated all of his suggestion and advices while staying there. The manager and staff were as well extremely friendly and helpful.
Besides all the wonderful amenities the apartment had to offer,and we all enjoyed so much, one of the best highlights of our stay was the great views of the Black Sea from all of the rooms in the apartment!!Having coffee in the morning on the balcony, enjoying the beautiful view and the company of our family was priceless.
We had a wonderful time and made great memories at the Riviera Penthouse. It is a marveliuos apartment. Great value for you money. We certainly would love to revisit Varna in the near future and will definitely try to rent the Penthouse again.

“Ideal base for a self-catering holiday by the beach in Varna”

This is a newly constructed apartment in a comfortable and secure block, with friendly property managers to help with taxi bookings & etc. (Garden and swimming pool too if you don't feel like going out) It is located in a laid-back community within short walking distance to the beach and to a selection of shops to stock up in, and good places to eat, all with easy English spoken. If you wake early or sleep late, the sun rising over the Black Sea as seen from the balcony is a must. Its also close by Golden Sands (walk within 25 mins) and the monastery carved into the cliffs (15 mins by taxi). We were very happy here and do recommend it

“Bulgaria on the sea”
Reviewed July 19, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

I have just returned from a fantastic break in Bulgaria at these lovely apartments.

My Husband both loved the apartment, the area/location, the people (inc. the staff at the complex) who couldn't do enough for us.

The owners (Peter) of the apartment organised us a transfer from the airport (varna) to the apartments which I would also highly recommend, unless you speak good Bulgarian and know directions to the apartment I would recommend asking Peter arrange for collection from the airport.

Peters communication was great throughout the booking process and throughout the months before the holiday I kept asking Peter little questions as they popped into my head and the information he provided couldn’t have been more helpful.

The apartments are clean, spacious, with air con in every room… which is required in the summer. There is plenty of wardrobe space,

We had a little rest in the sauna and steam room on a overcast afternoon. Both well kept clean and tidy.

We found the beds and bedding comfortable, the showers are fantastically powerful also.

You get a full kitchenette, fully equip with everything you need, inc a large fridge to keep your drinks chilled, We cooked most of our breakfasts in the kitchen and sat on the balcony in the mornings over a nice fresh coffee.

Our parents who live in Bulgaria can to visit and also stayed at the apartments. They were both easily impressed by the apartment and its proximity to everything in the area.

The apartment is close (easy walking distance) to the local beach, where you can hire sun loungers and a umbrella for about £5 a day max, price depending on what part of the beach you visit.

There are a few bars, and restaurants in the local area again walking distance. We had some fantastic food (especially the fish) by the sea near the apartments. Some chilled cocktails in flirt bar and the bar at the bottom of the hill with a live singer (very good fun) Hubby even had a sing off with the hired entertainment in the bar one evening..

You can also walk easily to Golden sands and a short taxi ride later you are in the centre of Varna, a very clean city, with some great shops, restaurants, coffee bars and another fantastic beach.

I could not recommend the apartment and the location enough, you have everything you need, if you are after lively you can trot down to golden sands or a nice easy chilled night in the local restaurants and bars. Or taxi ride to Varna for more great restaurants, I would recommend Rapongi beach (on part of Varna beach with great food and service day and night.)

We will be returning to these apartments for another great break away….
