My husband and I recently spent a week at The Stowaway.

Great little hide-away - well named for sure. Works well for 2 people.
Everything was super-clean and functional - everything you could need for a short stay including creative storage bins to hide your clothes out of the way and not have to live out of a suitcase. Not luxurious but excellent value for money.

The outside space is a nice bonus. Can't beat the location ... right by the beach but just that step away for quiet and social distancing! Highly recommend!

Lovely location just off harbour front ideal for couples and small family’s Nice shared patio with table and chairs Well equipped with all you need

Fantastic location. A lovely, cosy place to stay.

Excellent value for money in a wonderfull location on the Wharf .

1 Mount Zion Flat is ideally located by the Wharf in St.Ives. Well appointed facility is good value for two fun loving holidaymakers.

Fantastic location! Stayed on the front in many cottages in St.Ives but this is the quietest. Lovely cottage and would return. Only downfall is the no parking.

Brilliant accommodation. Very close to beach, lovely to have some outdoor space, would definitely book again

This is a wonderful place to stay, perfect for a couple. The location is superb. The property is well equipped and has the great advantage of outside space overlooking the harbour.

Lovely cosy cottage for two that was well equipped. Ideally situated in the centre of St Ives. The courtyard gets the morning Sun then stays cool from the afternoon onwards which was perfect for us during the recent heat waves. Would definitely return.

It was a fantastic location. Couldn't have wished for a better position. Only downside you could here every footstep from upstairs and there was five people.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are so sorry that you experienced noise from the apartment above. I don't believe that this has been an issue there before, but with differing guests in the upstairs property each week, we would hope that what you experienced was a one-off. It sounds like you enjoyed everything else about it, so we hope that this didn't take the shine off it for you. Tanya, Customer Services

A charming little flat with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Ideally situated right next to the harbour, but at the same time tucked away from the hustle and bustle. You are also just 5 minutes from Porthgwidden beach, which as this is our favourite beach, was a bonus.


Fabulous little flat, our 2nd stay at Mount Zion Flat was Christmas. It has everything you need and has outside space which is a bonus. What it lacks in space it more than makes up for in location, perfect.

More than value for money beautifull flat

Excellent position on the wharf a must for couples who want to relax in St Ives. What more could you want everything is on your doorstep at this flat. Excellent value for money!

Ideal for a couple who like to be near the beach.
