9 Riviera Apartments
Carbis Bay

£591 - £1737 per week

9 Riviera Apartments is a bright and airy holiday home with three bedrooms and three bathrooms set over two floors. The apartment is of a generous size and can accommodate a family of six or three couples, comfortably. The balcony, which can be accessed from the kitchen and the sitting room, is the ideal spot to sit and enjoy that morning cuppa or watch the sun go down, with a glass of your favourite tipple in the evening.

Riviera Apartments are in an ideal position in Carbis Bay being just a short walk to the beach, and in a quiet location but close to the train station that runs from St Erth to St Ives, one of the most scenic ways to explore this area. Perched above Carbis Bay beach, the apartment has superb views, so you can watch the waves crashing over Godrevy Lighthouse, or occasionally spot dolphins in the bay.

Holidays in Carbis Bay

If you’re looking for a holiday away from the hustle and bustle of St Ives, then consider Carbis Bay, offering a quieter location for guests. Enjoy outstanding views, relaxing on the golden sandy beach and walking the coastal path, which is perhaps the most beautiful stretch in the county.

Choose a holiday in Carbis Bay and you’ll be spoilt by endless views and a sweeping coastline. Spend your days relaxing on the beach, or walk the coastal path into St Ives. Located between Hayle and St Ives, you’ll be spoilt for places to visit, from endless golden beaches, to Cornish cafes and family attractions.

Top tip

Take a ride on the St Ives branch line, one the most picturesque train journeys in Britain!

Carbis Bay beach

A holiday in Carbis Bay means you’ll have one of the most beautiful beaches just a short walk away from your holiday cottage. With crystal-clear turquoise waters, enjoy swimming and other watersports, with kayaks and paddleboards available to hire from the watersports centre at the beach. You’ll also be in close proximity to the golden sandy beaches at Lelant and Hayle and the popular beaches in St Ives; you could try a different beach every day of the week!

Walks in Carbis Bay

Leave the car at home and take the 20 minute walk into St Ives, enjoying the views along the way. This gentle walk is a must at least once during your stay.

For nature lovers, the Steeple Woods Nature Reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife and plants. Relax and explore the forty acre space which overlooks St Ives.

For the more adventurous soul, the St Michael’s Way is a 12.5 mile trek starting at nearby Lelant, and finishing up at the stunning St Michael’s Mount in Marazion. If the walk back doesn’t seem too appealing, you can always ride the open-top bus all the way back!

Excellent apartment,excellent location and everything for a great holiday

Really clean and spacious apartment with amazing views of Carbis Bay beach. Very well equipped kitchen with all you need. Very quiet location. The hill from the beach upto the apartment is very steep so you need to be fit.

We have just returned from an amazing 2 weeks the apartment location is fantastic near beach and local train line .
The only issue we had was the cleanliness of the apartment on arrival even though states pets not allowed it was full of pet hair so I had to clean before unpacking but didn’t let this ruin what was a fabulous holiday in a location we adore ??

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are so pleased you enjoyed your time at 9 Riviera. We are very sorry if the standard of cleanliness was not to the high level that you would have expected, we can only apologise if any areas had been missed. We would have been more than happy to get a housekeeper back to the property to rectify these areas of concern, as we would never expect you to have to clean on your arrival. Although 9 Riveria does not accept pets, we cannot guarantee that there have been no pets previously kept at the property. Katy, Customer Services.

A wonderful, spacious apartment with amazing views. Very clean and great kitchen, well-equipped. 5 minutes walk from the station, so a great location for us as we were holidaying using public transport.

A beautiful well equipped property with stunning views, we had a lovely stay with our family, thank you

Comfortable apartment, including balcony with excellent views over Carbis Bay.

Views to die for and will hopefully return again soon.

We had a wonderful holiday, in Carbis Bay. Everything you needed was in the Apartment. The welcome pack was much appreciated, we even had a vase of roses, so thoughtful. Apartment was spotless, spacious & bright. The view was beautiful. 5 mins from Tesco By car or a nice 15 minute walk. 5 minutes from train station, That will take you to St Ives, which is needed, has Finding a parking space in St Ives is very difficult. A lovely 10 minute walk down to the beach. I will definitely be booking again with Aspects very attentive service. Thankyou Elizabeth Allen & Family

Lovely spacious top floor apartment with excellent sea views either side of the building in front. Only a few minutes walk down to the fabulous beach, but remember Carbis bay is a very hilly place so coming back is not quite so easy :) ! Be aware though that the building works on the new apartment block next door can be noisy. We were disturbed from 8:00am or earlier on 6 days of the 7 we stayed.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were sorry to hear this, as except for a few days here and there, the noise from the site nearby has been minimal. The team have regularly visited all Riviera apartments, going inside them to check if anything can be heard, so that the most accurate information has been provided to guests on the website and with email updates to those who booked before information was available. We are sorry if it had been a particularly active week on the site, but just to reassure you, after a visit from a team member to check on everything after this, it all seemed quiet again. We hope that you still enjoyed your time here in Carbis Bay. Tanya, Customer Services

Lovely apartment great location near the beach and train station. Only downside Lots of steps. Would use again.

A beautiful, well equipped and furnished apartment sleeping 6 comfortably. Outstanding views from lounge window and balcony. Good location for beach, St. Ives, railway station and supermarket. However, there are many steps down from car park and up to apartment so would not suit very old or young.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

There are a good number of steps to access the property, so you are quite right in saying that this may not suit those who are less mobile or parties with very young children, who would need to be very careful with this number of steps. We include details on the property description on the website, so we hope that this was exactly what you expected. For those who don't mind several steps, the view that you get once in the property are fantastic and we hope that you agree, is well worth the effort to get there. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a really great week in the apartment. It was in a perfect location and it was spotlessly clean. The blinds in the twin bedded room need replacing as they were broken. Maintenance did attend straightaway but they were still not useable. Also, there is no wardrobe in the twin bedded room which was a shame. Need more coat hangers in the master bedroom. These are all minor observations. I would definitely stay in the apartment again. Would highly recommend.

Amazing view from this lovely spacious apartment

We had a lovely time, location is perfect and the apartment is a great size! Everyone had a wonderful and much needed break. Would book again

Lovely place for a family holiday. Location to station makes it easy to get into St Ives. Great that it’s so near coastal path and a big supermarket

Fantastic apartment, impressive views and comfortable space while in Carbis Bay.

We had a fantastic week in 9 Riviera Apartments to celebrate my brother's wedding. The apartment was superb and had everything we needed. There are a lot of steps but they didn't bother us. We have two kids of 6 and 4 and they saw the steps as an exciting challenge. The apartment was clean, spacious, comfy and bright. The location is great and the beach and train are about 5 mins walk away. The views are breathtaking. We loved it so much we immediately booked again for next year.

After being locked down for a year or so we were able to spend a long weekend with our son and his family as we were in a childcare bubble. The apartment is in a superb location, so handy for the excellent beach, and access to St Ives. Our grandchildren had a great time, although help was needed building sandcastles and dam making ! I would recommend the apartments, providing you are relatively fit to cope with the steps and steep slope up from the beach. I look forward to our next visit.

Spacious apartment, contemporary furnishings and lovely views.

Lovely apartment in a great location. We had a very comfortable stay, the apartment had everything we needed and a great view. Will definitely be returning.

Spacious Penthouse apartment on 2 floors. Lots of steps down and up - not ideal for the elderly or the very young! Panoramic views. Less than 5 minute walk from the train station with regular service to St Ives and St Erth. Would stay again.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments; we are delighted to read how much you enjoyed this property and those beautiful views. As you rightly say, there are a number of steps to negotiate, which we include in the description; so for those with limited mobility, or potentially if you are here with small children, this may be something that you want to bear in mind. We are glad that you agreed that it was completely worth it and hopefully we will see you back here again very soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Clean, light and very spacious. More than enough space for our 2 families of 3. Great little private pathways that take you straight to the train station and the beach. Has everything you need in the apartment. Would definitely return.
