Perfectly placed studio apartment close to and overlooking Porthmeor beach with a beautiful view. Excellent for couples break or person travelling alone to relax for a few days

A very comfortable and well appointed apartment for a quiet relaxing break. Beautiful views and walks from the doorstep. Look forward to a return visit in 2021.

It is quite a small studio but it is well furnished and nicely decorated. Kitchen had all the equipment you would need. Bed was comfortable. Good location, only 10 minutes walk to Porthmeor Beach.

Exceptionally well fitted out apartment- you really did only need to bring a beach towel . Great location , allotted private parking . Very helpful Aspect holiday service team . 10 minute walk to town and beaches . Pubs in st Ives very COVID aware - more than anywhere else we have visited lately . Certainly recommend.

Beautiful bolt hole to relax and get away from it all. Perfectly formed in every way, perfect use of the space. Will be back for sure

Amazing place to stay close by to St Ives with a view and parking. The space is very warm and inviting and benefits from a staggering view of the coast. Perfect spot in the morning to watch surfers. It’s only a short walk down into town if you use the shortcut path. Using this, it’s around 10 minutes to the Tate and a further 5 tops to town. Had everything we needed; well stocked kitchen, lots of utensils, Tupperware, laundry detergent, fab high spec appliances, cosy lights and lamps plus a comfortable bed. Shower was amazingly powerful and it even benefits from an outdoor shower - perfect after a swim or surf. Can’t praise it highly enough.

Excellent apartment and stunning views. You need to be fit to cope with the very steep hill back to the apartment.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments. We are glad to hear that you liked Ruth's Kitchen and enjoyed those amazing views from there. Being in such a fantastic location, with those stunning views, does involve an uphill walk back to the property after a day on the beach or in town. The walk may not be suitable for everyone, approx 10 minutes for most, but we hope that you found it worth it. The property is a lovely place to return to, and the walk down into town, via Porthmeor Beach enjoys amazing views all the way down! Tanya, Customer Services.

Amazing apartment with superb location and hassle free parking space.

Very good really quiet a little uphill take the short cut to the coast path Already booked next year

Another lovely stay at Ruth’s Kitchen, just as good as we remembered. Quality of apartment still excellent with super view.

Ruths Kitchen is a little gem of a place to stay close to the hustle and bustle of St Ives. We enjoyed staying here and would definately book this apertment again.

Fantastic location right by the south west coast path, with lovely views over Porthmeor and the headland. Very quiet as it's at the end of a cul-de-sac and only a 10-ish minute walk into St. Ives centre. Lovely property, very modern inside and well equipped. Very happy with our weeks stay !!

Enjoyed our stay. Fabulous place.. Thank you??

Another wonderful stay in Ruth’s Kitchen. Its spotless, bright & airy with amazing views

Lovely property, ideal location and the parking was great. We would definetly recommend staying in either Ruth’s kitchen and/or Marion’s cottage. A truly wonderful stay - thank you Aspects.

A gorgeous little apartment with a brilliant view of the ocean.

We had everything we needed for a week’s stay in St Ives and a walk to the beach took only a few minutes.

Lovely property that is well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Breakfast on the terrace with the sea view was delightful, and great being able to watch the surfers on Porthmoer beach. We would definately recommend to others.

Please thank the owner for providing a most comfortable and beautiful apartment. I would recommend it in an instant and would definitely return. A real get away- thank you

A little Cornish 'gem'!

Ruth's Kitcher is a gorgeous property with amazing views of Porthmeor, loved every minute and will be back!

Lovely well equipped apartment for two with fantastic views, very comfortable bed and very relaxing stay. Thoroughly enjoyed our week at Ruth's Kitchen. Great parking space too which is definitely a bonus in St Ives !

Ruth's kitchen is a nice clean and modern cottage, which was very well equipped with everything you need for a nice break away. It is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of St. Ives, but within walking distance of the town and beaches. The location of this property is more suited to people who are able to conquer steep hills as there are several in this area. The views from the lounge/bedroom French doors are stunning and you have panoramic views of Porthmeor Beach. You can wake up in the morning with a beautiful view of the sea.

Would recommend you to family and friends , ruths kitchen was the best we have stayed in ...

Ruth's Kitchen is a light and airy studio apartment with fantastic access to the coast path, you can just walk straight out of the house and down a tiny footpath beneath it, the views are amazing, and the decking catches the morning sun perfectly. I could have stayed forever...............

Lovely to wake up watching the sea and the extra high bed means you don't even have to get out of bed. Top notch appliances and great decor - perfect place for somewhere to rest your head and spend some quality time with your loved one!
