Have a swim before breakfast and pop back indoors to change. Look out for seals and dolphins from the living room or just gaze at the waves from your bed. The South West Coast Path is just on the doorstep with wonderful scenic walks round the island and beyond to Zennor. The Tate Gallery, Hepworth Garden and Porthmeor Studios are just a short stroll. There's a wealth of exciting shops, galleries and fabulous restaurants to explore nearby. For Golfers, head down the coast to Lelant for the scenic links course. Or just chill - From the living room, you can watch the tide lapping onto the beach, and look out for seals and dolphins. Watch the waves crashing up to Godrevy Lighthouse, which inspired Virginia Wolf's novel "To The Lighthouse". For art lovers there are regular classes that can be booked for drawing, painting and pottery and crafts. Number Four used to be home to St Ives artist Bob Crossley, whose son still paints and runs the Gallery below.

Lovely property renovated to a high standard with breath taking views.

The photos of Number Four Beach Court don’t do this place justice. Spotlessly clean, beds were very comfortable, and the little quality touches around the apartment were very well thought out. The location is brilliant and the views were amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and have already booked to come back. Can’t wait! Highly recommended.

Overall view of apartment very good especially if you have children with beach being so close. Lovely that body boards bucket and spades and chairs plus games for beach were in apartment to use if required, we did not know this so had taken our own with us. We would stay here again and definitely recommend to family and friends.

Beautiful clean, modern, bright apartment with exceptional views and a brilliant location overlooking Porthgwidden Beach. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Aspects holidays are superb in every way, their communication is excellent and the team can’t do enough to help, their property knowledge and accommodating manner is second to none and I would not use any other provider, I have booked with them 6 times now and they have never let me down.

Fantastic - many thanks

Amazing location only a few steps from Porthgwidden beach. Lie in bed in the main bedroom and watch the sun rise over the sea. Lovely, quirky apartment, very well equipped with high quality appliances. Loved it!

Spectacular location, 50 yards from the beach 200 yards from the harbour and main restaurants, in one of Cornwall's best loved resorts, superior accommodation, excellent fixtures & fittings, the 50 inch Smart TV went done well with the children on the 2 bad weather days we suffered. If you want a holiday with the children on the beach, no driving your car, easy access to all what St Ives has to offer this is for you. We will be back.

Simply cannot recommend this property enough. It had everything we needed for a fantastic week long break. Not having to wash up because of the dishwasher, washing machine, lovely and warm, spotlessly clean, plenty of room, the views are outstanding. Everything has been thought of for a lovely enjoyable holiday.

Wonderful <3

Perfect place and a perfect holiday. Loved the property and location, it brought much happiness. Will definitely book again . Thankyou

Lovely property, sea views very uplifting, children loved being close to beach, great to have a proper bath, grandparents were comfy in the downstairs bedroom with a tv of their own. Welcome pack was very good and much appreciated, thank you. Wine was delicious.

This Property has THE #1 location having stayed in St Ives 17 times over 22 years with many companies in as many properties. I could lay in bed with a cup of tea and see Dolphins in the bay. A real tonic and stress reliever. Thank you Aspects.

Lovely place to stay even in winter, warm etc. Great for watching the rough seas and for the Porthgwidden Beach cafe which was yards from the house.This place has been well thought out with many extra touches which is something you do not always find in holiday cottages.

This apartment is in a wonderful position,just a few paces from Porhtgwidden beach. It had sea views from most rooms and was warm and snug. It has everything you might need for a holiday, including games,books and DVD's for all ages. All the beds were comfortable and the furnishings and fittings were of good quality. Beautiful decor. We had fabulous weather in October and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I could have sat for ours looking a the views from the apartment. We even saw dolphins from our lounge window. Very bright and nicely decorated and convenient for all the shops and restaurants.

Perfect location - in a stone's throw of two of St Ives' best beaches. The accommodation had everything we needed.

4 Beach Court is in an ideal location for families. It's very close to Porthgwidden beach and everything else in St Ives is just a short walk away. The apartment is of a very high standard and very modern and clean. We felt relaxed as soon as we had arrived and just by the fact the kids were jumping about with excitement as we went through the door said it all really. Thank you!
