The Tate Gallery, Porthmeor Studios, Art School and Hepworth Gardens are all within a short walk, as are loads of fabulous restaurants and independent shops. The South West Coastal Path is just on the doorstep, with wonderful scenic walks round the island and Porthmeor. For a longer walk, continue on to Zennor for some well-deserved and hearty pub grub.

August 2018

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.

August 2018

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.

July 2018

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.

December 2017

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.

October 2016

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.

July 2016

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

May 2016

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!
