Porth Glas
Porthmeor, St Ives

£672 - £2240 per week

Porth Glas is a beautiful, spacious, duplex, apartment, accessed via the ground floor. The apartment is situated within an area of St Ives that has mesmerising views, looking out over the bay and its clear, blue, waters, hence the appropriately named 'Porth Glas', which is Cornish for blue harbour. Two large bedrooms provide the ultimate comfort for a family or two couples sharing and, as they say, 'location is key!' which is certainly the case here. The property has been lovingly furnished with, both a luxurious and modern feel throughout, and is the perfect home from home for you to return back to, year after year.

You will have one of the most memorable holidays here, as you can hit the beaches within a few minutes' walk, or pop out in the car knowing that you can return back at any point with ease to the space right outside your front door. More importantly, at the end of an exciting day of exploring West Cornwall, you can pop into the indoor sauna to unwind before relaxing with your favourite tipple as the sun starts to set over Porthmeor.

THERE IS A RISK THAT YOU MAY HEAR SOME ASSOCIATED NOISE IN THE EARLIEST STAGES OF THIS DEVELOPMENT, AND WORK/MACHINERY MAY BE VISIBLE FROM THE APARTMENT, SO GUESTS STAYING UP UNTIL END OF SEPTEMBER 2022 WILL RECEIVE A DISCOUNT OF 10%.

Well appointed apartment with lovely views. Very relaxing place to stay.

Would not recommend Porth Glas or Aspects of St Ives, building works are directly opposite this building and will carry on for a long time causing noise and parking problems, and Aspects only advised us of the building works 18 hours before we were to arrive, not at all impressed

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are really dissapointed to hear that after so many years of booking with us, this incident has left you feeling so disapointed by our service, which I hope has always previously met the very high standards that we set for ourselves. And it is such a shame that this has also impacted your view of this property as a result. The piece of land opposite has been rumoured to be getting developed for many years and eventually got planning permission. We have been trying to find out what would be going on there, when work would start and so on, but have not been able to get that information. We had no calls or emails back from the people that we had contacted and as we are sure you can appreciate, there is no way for us to know when any work may start. It could have been 2 weeks after planning permission was granted, or several years. With no warning at all, diggers arrived on site, and we started contacting owners of the properties that would be affected, and their guests the same day that we were notified to this. We really do appreciate that noise associated with the builders unloading their diggers and machinery on to the site ready for works to start at a later date, is not what you expect while on holiday, so please rest assured that we will always be completely open and honest with guests about things like this and contact guests as soon as we are aware.

Would recommend to anyone , looking for a relaxing holiday, not far from harbour and shops! Lovely and spacious with everything you need and more! Loved it xx

Another fabulous stay at Porth Glas! Superb location, everything within a few minutes walk, parking right outside the apartment is a bonus. Already looking at booking for next year!

This has to be one of the most impressive flats we’ve stayed at, during our many years of holidays in St Ives. It has everything you could need for an enjoyable effortless stay. It has an amazing level of finish, including underfloor heating, a lovely big family kitchen, parking right outside the door, and even a sauna. The views from the living room are stunning. We loved our stay and want to book again!

Lovely spacious modern apartment in a great location with good parking. Family loved the sauna after body boarding.

I have stayed at Porth Glas a handful of times it is in the perfect location parking right outside the front door it a very luxury and spacious apartment and has everything you would need.

Fabulous apartment in a great location, we would highly recommended it. Porth Glas is a very clean and spacious place, home from home.
