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!
Ashley the owner was extremely helpful.
The apartment was amazing. Is was very clean and the furnishing and decorating was excellent. There was every amenity that you could wish for for a lovely holiday.
The weather wasn't the best but it didn't matter as we had somewhere lovely to go back to.
Thank you also to Ashley and Claire for the hamper it was a lovely surprise.
The apartment was very clean and right next to beach and station. Great welcome hamper!!
Ample space for my daughter to run around. Definitely recommend it.
We had a lovely Christmas staying in this gorgeous apartment. The minute we walked through the door we knew we had made a good choice. It was lovely and warm, clean, stylishly furnished with great art work - someone with interior design talent has fitted it out! There were lovely sea views from all the windows. We were delighted to find the owners had put up a tree for us and even the decorations were classy. There was a festive Christmas hamper with mulled wine, Christmas pudding, mince pies, stolen, conserve, brandy butter, chocolate etc Two highlights of our stay were visiting Mousehole to see the Christmas lights and lantern parade and watching the mass swim on Boxing Day in St Ives. We would love to return one day - it's in an ideal location for exploring our favourite area of Cornwall.
