Absolutely loved our holiday in St Ives, we stayed at Beachside, perfect location for the beaches & the main town & harbour. The parking was an absolute bonus & once the refurbishment of this property has taken place it will be a little gem of a place to stay at & one that we will return to again & again.

Perfect location

Absolutely loved our holiday in St Ives, we stayed at Beachside, perfect location for the beaches & the main town & harbour. The parking was an absolute bonus & once the refurbishment of this property has taken place it will be a little gem of a place to stay at & one that we will return to again & again.

Great location, parking space outside was very useful.

Lovely property with very comfortable beds in a brilliant location and the parking is excellent.

Loved Beachside, it's in a great location and the parking space is a massive bonus!

Fabulous location, so good to have parking right outside. Beach is literally around the corner. Listening to the waves a great way to fall asleep.

We spent a lovely Christmas break in this cosy little cottage. With a few minor improvements it would be a superb place to stay in wonderful St Ives.

Thank you for your helpful comments; we are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your time here. It certainly sounds like made the most of this property's great location. We will pass on your suggestions about the bathroom and having larger mirrors in the bedrooms, to the property owner, for their consideration. Thank you again. Tanya, Customer Services

This was a lovely clean cottage with easy access to the beach. The main problem we found was above the flat was a larger 2 bedroom flat and because of the age of the cottage the floors are boarded. During our stay there was a couple with 3 children in this flat and the noise was horrendous from early morning. There is also a warning about the parking but it is exceptionally difficult if you have a larger car.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are so sorry to hear that you had experienced noise from the upstairs apartment. Whilst some noise can always be a bit of a risk with flats/apartments, we have never had any feedback about this from this property before, so we hope that it had been an unfortunate one-off experience. We will of course monitor this going forward now, having received your feedback. Thank you for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Services

Location second to none, parking a superb bonus

Nice little appartment with great location. Beach literally on doorstep and town 2min walk. Would stay there again.

Great property in an excellent location with the added benefit of parking outside

Lovely, cosy cottage with some modern touches. Fantastic location, car parking is a real bonus. Ideal for couples, three adults or family with two young children.Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again!!!

Beach side is a wonderful little property, really cosy but large enough to not feel cramped. Location is perfect for using the beach and exploring the town. Having a parking space makes exploring the wider area so much easier!

Amazing location, great for the town and the beach. Very comfortable bedrooms and living area and big enough for our small family. Shame about the bathroom which just needs replacing

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your really helpful feedback; it was great to hear how much you liked it at Beachside; it really is a fantastic location there isn't it? Thank you for your suggestion about the bathroom; all feedback is sent to the owners for their consideration. You get to use and experience the facilities in a way that we wouldn't when we inspect the properties, so we really appreciate the useful thoughts and suggestions on what improvements would most benefit guests. Thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services

Beachside is such a lovely property. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the fluffy white towels were better than hotel standard! The parking space is a definite bonus and makes the location of this property even more attractive. Given it's location to the beach and likely use by families/couples who want to surf, there isn't an outside space and this isn't obvious from the description. We made do with hanging wetsuits outside the front of the properly but a few hooks (rather than using the signs!) would make this much easier! We would definitely stay here again, great property and the beach being seconds away made this such an attractive property.

Thank you for your really helpful feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed it there. St Ives is a beautiful, picturesque town, but with its origin as an old fishing town, there are many traditional fishermans cottages that do not have parking or outside space. Whilst Beachside has the excellent benefit of the parking, we do not advertise outside space at this property. We are really sorry if this is not clear enough. If ever you are looking to return, if you tick the box for outside space on the website, this will just display those that have that facility; or call up our sales team, who would be very happy to help advise you. We hope that all the other great benefits of this property, including its brilliant location, made up for the lack of outside space though, and we hope to see you back again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

The apartment is in the best location. A few steps from the beach and only minutes walk into town.
It is a cosy comfortable apartment suitable for a family of four. It is fully equipped with everything you need for a perfect holiday. Lovely decor and finishing touches. The parking space is an added bonus, just be carful as it’s a big step you have to pull up on.

Beachside is a lovely ground floor apartment on Porthmeor Beach. The location of this property is second to none - it's on the beach and 5 minutes from the harbour, shops, restaurants and bars. It's small but cosy and very well laid out. The only negatives was the bathroom which does need a makeover and the microwave needs replacing. This did not spoil our holiday and we had a wonderful stay at Beachside.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments; we are glad to hear that you enjoyed it there. The owner immediately arranged a replacement microwave, upon receiving your feedback, so thank you for bringing that to our attention, and thank you for sending in your thoughts on the bathroom; it is always really helpful to have your thoughts on what changes would most benefit guests; thanks again. We hope to see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services
