Very much enjoyed our stay at 7 Riviera Apartments. Very comfortable, clean property in a peaceful location with sea views. Close to the beautiful, tropical looking beach but beware, there are many steep hills in Carbis Bay. Lots of good walks to enjoy in the area. Carbis Bay is within easy walking distance of St Ives; lovely to visit but very busy. Mind the seagulls; we were nearly mugged 3 times!

June 2024

This is a great location to explore Carbis Bay and access St Ives on foot or by train. The flat is spacious and easily fits 2 adults and 2 children. The only thing to flag is that this flat has lots of steps for access, but with that comes great views of the sea, the peninsular at St Ives and the light house at Godrevy.

Carbis Bay beach

St Ives is a stunning seaside town that is only a 30 minute walk along the coastal path and easily reached through one of the most memorable and scenic train rides in the UK.

Perfect location - lovely views across the bay to St Ives and Godrevy

Very comfortable and convenient for the train

Lovely and comfortable home could not ask for anything was great Lovely Seaview from kitchen window and balcony would recommend,hard work walking up hill but that is Cornwall for you.

We found after staying at Chy an Mor - 7 Riviera Apartments it was clean & tidy, well equipped with easy access to Carbis Bay beach & train station.

Good outside storage which had beach equipment for use.

Patio area had good sea views. Lounge area you could see Godrevy lighthouse.

Good selection of books, dvds & games if required for those wet days.

Would recommend.

This is our 2nd time staying at this property and knew what to expect in terms of high standards. The added bonuses are allocated parking; close proximity of Carbis Bay beach and train station making easy to travel to St Ives itself. We will be back again at the property!

We really enjoyed our stay at Chy an Mor - 7 Riviera Apartments. The property was particularly well presented - clean, really spacious, well-equipped and comfortable. The second bathroom was a real benefit as was having a designated parking space. Great location and quiet. Good value for money. Would be very happy to stay here again.

We have stayed in carbis bay at various apartments over the last 6 years so had a good idea of the area and apartment locations. The ground floor apartment was really well located close to carbis bay beach. Views of the sea on both sides which was nice and the kitchen led out onto the balcony. Overall a comfortable apartment which two spacious rooms and one onsuite which works well when you have children. The living room was comfortable at night and was relaxing after being out all day at the beach. We loved it so much we have already booked again for 2023.

A lovely, spacious and comfortable apartment, good quality furnishings and homely touches throughout. Everything you need is available. Good access to beach, station is very close but quiet location too.

Excellent location for Carbis bay and short train ride to St Ives for only £2. very well equipped kitchen. Comfy beds. 2 dining tables was great. Lots of information on things to do in the area. Lots of storage areas. Black out blinds needed. Safety lock on inside door needed for escapee toddlers! Excellent break…Just a shame we didn’t get the weather.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad that you enjoyed it there despite the weather not being quite as nice as you had hoped. There is still a lot to enjoy here though, even if the weather is not on your side. It can be quite difficult for owners to choose suitable curtains or blinds as some guests love blackout curtains/blinds for late, relaxing lie ins, and others love to have the light coming in, in the mornings and prefer an earlier start to make the most out of the day. We will certainly pass on your suggestion to the owners though. In terms of a safety lock on the door; these are not allowed for fire safety reasons. Guests need to be able to quickly escape from a property in the event of a fire, without additional locks to deal with or keys to find, particularly when you are not so familiar with the property. We will still pass on the feedback in case there is an alternative solution to this that the owners may consider though. Hopefully we may see you back here one day. Tanya, Customer Services

A warm welcome to a Lovely homey apartment positioned perfectly for Carbis bay beach with stunning views from kitchen window and patio seating area! Double bed so comfortable and apartment was well equipped! Excellent and would definitely book another stay! Thank you! And booked fantastic weather for us to!

Wonderful location with fab views and a very comfortable stay with everything you could need

Excellent accommodation and perfect location to explore St Ives and surrounding areas in Cornwall.

Actual apartment would highly recommend, lovely and comfortable beds excellent. Drawback are the 47 steps down to the front door, which you have to climb again to get to the car park which is on a slant. Views are great also.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

There are a good number of steps to access the property, so this is something that you may need to consider before booking. 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

This is our second stay at Chy an Mor and we love the Riviera apartments. The location is ideal and the apartment is spacious and comfortable. Once again, another fantastic Cornish holiday and we can’t wait to come back

Wonderful location! A 5 min walk down hill to the beautiful beach. 3 min to walk to the train station to St Ives. No 7 was very clean and spacious, it had all the kitchen equipment you could ask for. Good clear instructions on do’s and don’ts and good communication with the booking operator. Would definitely visit again, highly recommend.

The apartment was just perfect for our family holiday. Had everything you could possibly need for a from-home-to-home stay. 4 minute walk to the beach.. 10 minute walk back up hill. Rail Station just nearby too so was nice and easy to pop to st Ives. Will definitely book there again.

Fabulous apartment very spacious.Spotless clean all equipment worked.Few yards from railway station into St Ives from Carbis Bay very cheap rail fare £1 to St Ives.Best apartment we have been in no noise. 10/10 get it booked but leave a week spare for us to come again. Fabulous. John MAPLETOFT Huthwaite Notts

This is a lovely base for a relaxing seaside holiday, nothing pretentious, just simple home comforts and good taste, with fine views to the sea.

Great location, halfway between main road (restaurants) and down to beach so handy for walking to both. Tesco just down the road also. Spacious, well equipped and comfortable apartment.

A very comfortable, spacious and clean apartment, with a welcoming, homely feel. The location is excellent, just a stone's throw from the coast path and the railway station, and a slightly longer walk or a short drive to Tesco. There is also a beautiful sea view to top it off.

Chy an Mor is very spacious, clean and homely, with great proximity to the beach and a nice view. What a beautiful corner of the world...breathtaking! Customer service from Aspects was stress-free and faultless.

We really loved our 2 weeks here. The apartment is really spacious and there was plenty of room for our family of 4. The views & location are excellent - a quick walk through the woods down to Carbis Bay Beach (a bit of a hill on the way back!). Wonderful to be able to walk/take the bus to St Ives without having to fight for parking! The apartment is really well equipped - including board games and extra beach stuff. Tesco and Costcutter are within walking distance. A great place to stay. We hope to go back again in the future.

This apartment is so spacious, light and comfortable. Great sea views of beautiful carbis bay, we enjoyed our evenings relaxing on the verandah looking at the ocean and watching the sunset. We return to Riviera apartments every year because of the brilliant location, a stones throw from Carbis bay train station, a 5 minute walk to Carbis bay beach (allowing you to avoid searching for very limited spaces and paying hefty parking fees at the beach) and right by the coastal path offering gorgeous walks. We had such a great stay at Chy an Mor and would highly recommend a stay in this lovely apartment

This is an excellemt base for a beach holiday, especially for families with young children, as a ten minute stroll takes you down through the woods to the beach without going on roads. The flat is simply furnished but has everything you need and there's a good amount of open space outside for visiting children to play.

For our family, it's nice that we can rent two or three flats at the same time, so my grandchildren get to have fun with their cousins, but I also have a bit of peace and quiet in 'my own' flat from time to time.

Recommend this apartment for comfort, position and facilities.

A large, well equipped apartment with a pleasant balcony. Close to the railway station for those who do not want the stress of parking in St Ives.

Great location. Well equipped property. Lots of useful information. Very well thought out.
