By The Beach is a comfortable apartment just a stone's throw from Porthmeor beach and a very short walk from the centre of St Ives with all of its shops, restaurants, galleries and ice-cream parlours! Turn left from your front door, immediately left again, and feel the sand between your toes or keep an eye on the sea's mood from your kitchen window; your hardest choice of the day will be to surf or not to surf! By The Beach makes a great escape for families and friends to enjoy and entertain, at any time of year. St Ives has plenty do and see, for all the family and there is even more to explore further afield.

We found By The Beach beautifully clean and welcoming with some lovely artistic flourishes and features. It was comfortable and had all that we might possibly need. The location, so near to the beach, could not be bettered. We had a wonderful holiday in this fabulous property, thank you!

Very close to the beach

Jul 2019

An excellent holiday in charming accommodation - very helpful and friendly staff at Aspect.

Jul 2019

Lovely comfortable flat, although small. The beach is just round the corner which is brilliant.

Mar 2019

If you're looking for a beach location, choose by the beach! Couldn't ask for anything more!

Feb 2019

Close to the beach however only a glimpse of the sea can be seen through the windows and between buildings to the rear. So a view of the sea rather than a sea view. Flat is generally excellent and dog friendly. A lovely welcome pack of tea, scones, clotted cream, jam, coffee, sugar and milk.

Thanks for your comments. Glad to hear that you liked it there, and enjoyed its fantastic location, with Porthmeor beach quite literally just around the corner! Whilst you can see the sea through the kitchen window; it is a glimpse between a couple of buildings, so we have amended the description to make that a little clearer. Thank you again for your comments, and hope to see you back soon! Tanya, Customer Services

Excellent all round will definatley be back.. Well equipped house. Lovely welcome pack..

Sep 2018

An enjoyable stay in this perfectly-named property, that has some great features to recommend it.

Apr 2018

Wonderful location! A very relaxing part of St Ives with the beach beach literally in your doorstep. We would definitely recommend!

Apr 2018

Great location. A comfy little flat but no parking - so you need to use town parking which is close by - but almost always full.

Sep 2017

Well located and easy for everything you need for a fab time in St Ives!

Jan 2017

A perfect holiday apartment that feels more like a cottage. Beautifully appointed, gorgeously comfortable and the beach just around the corner, it's a lovely place for a relaxing family holiday. We loved it and will definitely be back!

May 2016

By The Beach is the perfect location for having a beach literally on your doorstep. You can pop back with the kids if they need the loo or if you want to grab a BBQ or a flask of tea. Lovely little touch of having the flask mugs. You may not be facing the beach directly but that doesn't matter because you're in the quiet little quaint street right next to it. You don't have to drive anywhere either because you have the whole of St Ives on your doorstep. And because of the location, you come across some great spots to eat. There's a super corner shop with just about everything you need, and I mean everything. Porthmeor beach is beautiful and so is the point where you can walk up and watch the sunset of an evening. Being a dog friendly property meant that myself, my husband, our 5 year old daughter and our mini sausage dog, could relax and have one of the best holidays ever. Thanks Aspect. It was a random lucky find but we'll be most definitely booking with you again.

We have had a most awesome time staying in By The Beach. The apartment has everything anybody could possibly need for a relaxing break. By the beach is quite literally the perfect name for the apartment. Lying in bed listening to the sea was the perfect tonic .
