This property is one of the best we have stayed in, in a long time, the view of Porthmeor Beach is spectacular and breathtaking every day you walk in the apartment & every morning you awake. The bedrooms are quite small so consider that when packing, the apartment has everything you need. An absolute joy is the courtyard you enter into, to access the apartment, on a sunny day it feels like you’ve visited the Mediterranean with white walls & gorgeous planting, a wonderful holiday location

Beautiful property with outstanding views.

Really enjoyed our stay at 2 Piazza. The apartment was great for the our family with 2 young children.

Just wonderful!

A very clean and well equipped apartment in a beautiful location right on the beach, we loved every minute of our holiday and would stay here again without a moment's hesitation.

Just "wow".

Arriving at piazza after a long drive and opening the front door to be met by the most spectacular view of porthmeor beach thru the floor to ceiling wall of windows that envelopes the entire apartment. Balcony is fabulous- sitting with a glass of wine watching sunset or watching the surfers on the waves. 2 minute walk to the harbour for shopping and the best fish n chips at the balancing eel. Wonderful service from Aspects as always. Already booked for next year.

Great location, minutes from everything. Fabulous...

The location of this property is the main selling point. It cannot be improved upon! The main bedroom has no window and isn’t very pleasant; but the balcony & lounge window definitely compensate!! The apt was well kitted out with utensils etc and there were even a supply of body boards, buckets & spades on the balcony; but we’d brought our own! Amazing week right on Porthmeor beach!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It is a shame to hear that the bedrooms didn't quite work for you. They are both on the small side, and there are, like you say, no windows in the main bedroom, just the glass blocks to allow light in. We try to make this as clear as possible within the description and we hope that this was as you had expected when booking. The owners have tried to make the most out of the layout and we are glad that you agree that the location and views well and truly make up for that compromise on space in the bedrooms; those views are spectacular, no matter what the weather! Thanks for taking the time to send in your comments; we hope that you enjoyed St Ives. Tanya, Customer Services

If you are looking for modern and sleek this is NOT the place for you, as it all seems a little tired but the location and stunning views make up for that. You can’t get any closer to Porthmeor beach - the sounds of the waves and the amazing sunsets.. all perfect!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thanks for your helpful comments, we are glad you had a great time here, you certainly don't get much closer to the beach than this! 2 Piazza certainly isn't marketed to be a modern property but the owners have always kept everything maintained and in good order, and the property is priced accordingly, taking into account the style of decor, size, location and so on, so we hope that it was just what you had expected from the photos and description, as we always aim to be completely open and honest with how properties are represented. We are glad you had a fantastic week and hopefully see you here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

One of my favourite St Ives properties. It’s warm and cosy in winter with great views no matter what the weather decides to do! I always feel confident that an Aspects property will be of a high standard. The tea, coffee, milk and biscuits are an added bonus that we are always grateful for after a long journey!

An apartment with a fabulous location overlooking Porthmeor beach. The main room and kitchen area are great for cooking and relaxing whatever the weather - we were there over New Year. Twenty paces away is Norway Stores with good bread, eggs, scones, and a smart range of quality cooking items. The main sound is from the crashing surf and seagulls - no traffic at all, and quiet neighbours. However, the bedrooms are about as small as they can be, so pack small and stay neat.

I had an lovely Christmas in this beachfront property with stunning views over Porthmeor beach. I imagine it's great in summer too, but I highly recommend it for a winter visit - it was warm and comfortable, with excellent facilities especially the well-equipped kitchen, and the bed was exceptionally comfortable so I slept like a log (and I often struggle with hotel beds). The location is fantastic, right in the centre of Downalong with Norway Stores literally on your doorstep and the Island and harbour within a few minutes' walk. The entrance from Back Road is rather steep and might be tricky for wheelchair users or pushchairs, but once you are in Piazza everything is on the level apart from the door to the beach and a couple of steps down to the laundry room. I really appreciated the little touches like the decorated Christmas tree which made it very festive. I could have happily stayed much longer, and I hope to book this flat again for a future visit.

A lovely cosy apartment in a fantastic location, stunning views, well equipped and perfect for 2 people. We would definitely return.

This property is great, all that you need for a holiday by the sea especially if you are not so able to get around. No stairs to negotiate being all on one level. I have booked this property again already.

A beautiful apartment in an absolutely stunning location which we think it would be hard to better anywhere in St Ives. Waking up to the sound of the ocean and being able to be instantly able to see the amazing view from the balcony was bliss!

The apartment is light, airy and maintained to a high standard. Extras like books, DVDs and beach equipment (we went body boarding!) was a lovely touch as was the complimentary tea, coffee etc.

The bed was very comfortable with plump pillows and all was immaculately clean throughout. The shower was good, and the bathroom is spacious. Lovely crockery with that St Ives vibe! It all adds up to make it a fabulous holiday - we even got lots of sunshine too, albeit with some heavy and very spontaneous rainfall!

In St Ives generally there is so much to enjoy; lovely walks, restaurants catering for all tastes and relaxed bars, not least the legendary Sloop.

100% recommended!

The location of this property can not be bettered. The view is to die for, the only problem is, with this view, balcony, and local take-aways, we never ate out!

Amazing view and a comfortable, well equipped, homely apartment. The main bedroom does not have a Window to the outside, but it was not too much of a problem.

We highly recommend aspects Holidays they provided a welcome tray and the staff were very helpful.

Fantastic location on Porthmeor Beach - wake to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach below. Spent so much time wave watching!

I have booked holidays and short breaks through Aspects before and have always had superb service. They have always supplied towels and linen (when other holiday companies didn’t), as well as much needed welcome goodies. Excellent service!

Aspects offer very positive service

Fantastic location . Have been staying at this property for many years - love it !!!

Fantastic view good for all weather and sunsets

Sublime location - really can’t be beaten if you love the sea, surf and beach.

Views are breathtaking

On all my previous stays in St Ives i usually opted for a place around Fore Street in the heart of everything. This time i thought i would try a place facing the Porthmeor Beach and am now converted. It was incredibly peaceful and WOW the view is just spectacular! Most nights i would wrap myself in a blanket and watch the sunset on the balcony. Warm comfortable home that i would definitely recommend.

A perfectly positioned Beach bolt hole, with breathtaking views, all day, every day!

The apartment has the most spectacular view of porthmeor beach. is in a perfect location to explore St Ives - just a short walk to the town and harbour. Very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended. We'll certainly be back

Location is fabulous and views second to none Very comfortable apartment and ground floor access brilliant

Unbelievable location with views to die for. Sitting on the balcony every night listening to the waves crash in was idyllic. Wonderful property and within 48hrs we had pre-booked for next August we were so impressed.

Unbeatable views from this apartment . Piazza is one of the best located developments in St Ives and access to beach by private door so convenient .

Fabulous location. A very comfortable and easy to live in apartment.

This is a brilliant location , we stay here regularly and love it

We have stayed at 2, Piazza for many years and it never disappoints. The views and access to beach are excellent. Can't wait for next year !

We had a great holiday at the piazza, fab location and amazing view - couldn't have asked for more - would love to come back and would recommend to friends

Perfect spot for our little family. Property clean and well looked after. We love it here!

For a holiday apartment it couldn't be bettered: great location, super facilities and stylish furnishings.

Perfect small bolt hole with panoramic views and proximity to the excellent Norway stores.
