9 Piazza was such a pleasant stay and right in the middle of all the action, inside the property was quiet enough to feel away from it all too. View from out the huge window were priceless, right on the beach.

Had a relaxing week at 9 Piazza with fantastic views from the balcony. The apartment is comfortable, well equipped and ideally located for beaches and restaurants and shops. Car parking was a little tighter than we were expecting - not for the faint hearted !

A friend recommended Aspect Holidays and thanks to him we booked in St. Ives. The apartment is very well equipped, the location perfect and the view stunning. The booking procedure and follow up was very professional and the team super friendly. Regarding the new situation with COVID-19 everything was handled very well.

Aug 2020

Well equipped omfortable apartment with the added bonus of a storage cupboard on the balcony. The view from the balcony is what makes it worth the stay.

Jul 2020

The team at Aspects have nailed it! Real pros. Really friendly. Super helpful. The pre-arrival pack is awesome. Beautifully presented and a huge help when planning ahead for a seamless visit to the charming town of St Ives. And the property was breathtaking, comfortable, cosy, just perfect.

Mar 2020

Jan 2020

Lovely apartment beautiful views we would definitely book again. Lovely cream tea and wine on arrival along with fresh flowers what’s not to like.

Jan 2020

We had a great Christmas break in this stylish and comfortable flat . It is in a spectacular position and we enjoyed watching surfers , dog walkers and sea from the panoramic window . Highly recommended

Dec 2019

A wonderful property, with the most amazing sea view. We loved our stay there, so relaxing. It was great coming back to the apartment to sit on the balcony and watch the beach life go by. So close to everything in St Ives and still very quiet. Well equipped with everything you could need and thoughtful welcome touches.

Nov 2019

Lovely property right on the beach with outstanding views. Car parking space will only accommodate a small car.

Sep 2019

Superb holiday combined with Art course in Porthmeor studios just next door.

Sep 2019

Jul 2019

Jul 2019

Aspects staff are very helpful and go out there way to help you st Ives is a wonderful place were everyone would love to live never had a bad holiday there the weather has always been kind to us a very friendly place as are the people

Jun 2019

When we first saw 9 Piazza advertised on Aspects web site, it said that the apartment was bespoke and had an excellent view and of course lots of photographs of the apartment and an explanation of the word bespoke. What we didn't expect was such a well equipped apartment and a really breathtaking view taking in Porthmeor Beach, what we believe is the best beach in St Ives. We have just completed our fourth year and have just booked for next year at 9 Piazza.

May 2019

9 Piazza is a dream. For two people, the perfect place to stay in St Ives. The arrival experience (complimentary scones, jam and clotted cream, plus a lovely bottle of wine) is always such a lovely touch. Charming decor. So neat and freshly presented. Brilliant kitchen. Excellent shower. Breathtaking, mesmerising views of Porthmeor Beach. And so close to the heart of the gallery zone and harbour. Unbeatable. Thank you!

Mar 2019

Excellent location and amazing views, apartment is fully equipped with everything you could wish for and everything is of a very high standard, will definitely be back!

Feb 2019

A beautiful apartment, well equipped and immaculate. The view is stunning even when the weather not so good. I saw sea birds diving, a daily visit by a very curious seal and best of all a pod of dolphins fishing and leaping. Wonderful. Close to all amenities, Tate St Ives and other galleries. A wonderful base for whatever you want to do or just sit on the veranda and watch the world go by. Stunning.

Mar 2018

Position, comfort and view.

Feb 2018

We love 9 Piazza - it starts our year with peace and comfort and of course the stunning beauty of Porthmeor beach when it is wild and empty!

Jan 2018

This is by far the best property we have stayed at in St Ives, the views are amazing with spectacular sunsets! The property is decorated beautifully and has everything you need to enjoy a fabulous beach holiday. We'll definitely be booking again!

Jun 2017

This is a brilliant place to stay

Dec 2016

This property is wonderful!!!!! It is exactly as described. We could not have been more pleased. It was so much fun to wake up in the morning and go to sleep at night to the sound of the sea. The surfing was right in front of our balcony. You are a very quick walk to everywhere in St. Ives.

Oct 2016

Very comfortable appartment in an idyllic location

Oct 2016

I would highly recommend this property to anyone even if is only to sit on the balcony and watch the amazing sunsets while listening to the waves. Just book it

Apr 2016

9 Piazza is a perfect little property in a stunning location - we didn't want to leave.

Apr 2016

Fabulous property full of charm with modern technology and lovely little details which made our stay comfortable and easy without detracting from the authenticity of being in St.Ives. The cream tea and bottle of wine waiting to welcome us were very much appreciated and we thoroughly enjoyed staying in such a lovely apartment.

Apr 2016

"This was our second stay at 9 Piazza and we have already made a provisional booking for 2017. The apartment is beautiful in so many respects that it appears churlish to find fault. However, when standards are so high at number 9, the bed and bedding sadly are features that do seem below the owners very high expectations. The Tempur mattress results in a very hot bed as it does not appear to breathe, resulting in sleepers perspiring and becoming consequently uncomfortable. This is not helped by the provision of a poor quality man-made fibre quilt. If these areas could be reviewed by the owners, we, and others from notes in the visitors book, would be even more delighted with our stays at this idyllic apartment.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you so much for your great comments, the owners of 9 Piazza are always really keen to hear guests thoughts on what would make the property even better for their guests. They had provided a TEMPUR® Cloud memory foam mattress as they believed that it would provide the very best comfort available, but as a result of your comments they have found a high quality Cool & Fresh Mattress Protector designed for memory foam beds that “regulates your temperature while you sleep and upgraded the winter duvet. They are hoping that these products will provide you with a more comfortable night’s sleep when you return. Tanya, Customer Services.

Excellent for everything Looking to return next year
