We had the most amazing week.
The property was exactly as described and spotless. The location is incredible - door to surf school in under 4 minutes! The local items provided (tea, coffee and soap) was a lovely touch. Although the covering has gone up on the scaffolding opposite we were aware this may be the case. The builders were considerate and friendly. Aspects Holidays were amazing from start to finish and can’t recommend them highly enough.

March 2024

Lovely holiday in St Ives, in a very clean well stocked apartment with car parking and amazing views of the harbour and bay. Great location, 5 minute walk to St Ives bakery for a morning cruffin and another minute to the harbour. Aspects holidays were very quick to respond to concerns we had about the building work opposite.

Lovely property in a fabulous location with great views and good parking. The property was warm and clean, the beds were comfortable, the showers were very powerful and we had everything we needed in the kitchen. We did hear some noise from the builders in the mornings but it wasn’t too annoying. They frequently blocked the parking area, but I’m sure they would have let us out if necessary. I recommend any of the food from the bakery at the bottom of the road, especially the bread, and the pasty’s, oh and the cruffins!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Those views are pretty magnificent, aren't they. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and made the most of the local area's wonderful bakeries - so many sweet and savoury treats to enjoy!

It's a shame to hear that you were blocked in by the builders working nearby, this isn't something that happens often, but should it ever be an issue please do get in touch with us and we'll be happy to help however we can. Katy, Customer Services.

Lovely holiday in St Ives, in a very clean well stocked apartment with car parking and amazing views of the harbour and bay. Great location, 5 minute walk to St Ives bakery for a morning cruffin and another minute to the harbour. Aspects holidays were very quick to respond to concerns we had about the building work opposite.

Excellent location. Great views from all the windows and really comfortable beds. Thank you

Loved the views from all windows looking out to the harbour and Porthmeor beach, especially the sunsets. The secure parking and lift upto the property was ideal especially with transporting luggage upto the apartment Think there needs to be a slip mat for the bath especially for those with mobility issues and a grab rail also. The apartment has fabulous views of where it is, but those again with mobility issues should be mindful of the steep walk up and down to the town. The only other issue while we were there was the building works happening opposite, we were not bothered by the noise but the parking of some of the builders at times was a little inconsiderate but obviously in the future that won't be a problem.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Those views are pretty beautiful, aren't they?! Your feedback regarding the bath mat and grab rail has automatically been passed along to the owner for them to take into consideration, but we always urge guests to get in touch with us during the time of your stay if there is anything we can assist with, as we would be more than happy to help wherever we can.

As you mentioned, the walk back up the hill to the property can be tricky for some, especially after a long day exploring, but we like to think that the views do make up for the walk!

We are sorry to hear that parking was a bit tricky due to the building works in the area, we are in regular communication with the trades on site to ensure that access is retained throughout, but we are sorry you experienced this. It's great to hear that the noise didn't cause a disturbance for you, too. Katy, Customer Services.

If you want breathtaking views from every window, this is the apartment for you. The trade off is, you will have to tackle a hill if you venture out on foot, but it is worth it. I wouldn't be concerned about the building work. The temporary fence they have erected isn't very pretty, but the builders are considerate and you don't notice it after a while.

Having stayed in many properties in St Ives, this is one of our favourites. Modern apartment with plenty of space for 4. Very handy to have the small outdoor area to keep wetsuits etc. Car is in a secure garage underneath the property. It's not often you find a property for 4 with 2 bathrooms, this was very practical. Superb views across the harbour and Porthmeor. Only a smallish incline (for St Ives standard!) via steps from Fore St to the apartment, excellent location. There is construction work opposite, which tends to get going around 07:30, but we're early risers so this didn't bother us.

Great little place with amazing views, comfortable and bonus of secure parking.

Aspects are excellent.They even phoned us to say property ready early.

Amazing views. Great to have secure parking. A steep hill to and from town - not an issue for us but something to consider.

Great apartment, are 2nd stay here. Great location with just a short walk to harbor and shops. Some nice views out over St Ives bay. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need. The secure parking is a bonus. We will defiantly be returning.

We have had a great week the apartment was spotless the kitchen was well equipped

Big plus is the secure parking also there is a lift to make it easier to move your luggage from the car

The building work opposite causes no problems

It's so close to the town, but it a quiet area

Fabulous apartment with parking, a real bonus, great views and very comfortable.

We spent a week here in the summer holidays and had a fantastic time. The location was perfect for us being a stone's throw from porthmeor beach but out the way enough that there is no foot traffic to disturb us at night. The parking is right under the property and is secure which is great. The property itself has everything you need although I would of substituted the fancy coffee machine for a cafeteria ?? but that's just me. It is light and airy and even on some really hot days remained cool with a lovely breeze coming through. I Would definitely recommend this property and it's on my list to check for availability next year

Lovely location, perfect views. I’ve been coming to St Ives for nearly twenty years and this was the best apartment we’ve stayed in.

Beautiful apartment, fabulous views, great layout, outdoor drying area, big parking space, 2 bathrooms, comfy beds...wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Lovely property in a fantastic location. Stunning sea views from every window. Very comfortable apartment with garage parking. The staff at Aspect holidays very helpful and dealt with any issues arising in a timely manner. They also followed up to check issues resolved. Would highly recommend this property and Aspect Holidays.

1 The Galleries at Porthmeor is a bright, clean and modern apartment with stunning views over St. Ives but quiet and private. Secure parking is provided but once the car is parked you could easily leave it for the duration of the holiday as the property is conveniently located close to so much which can accessed by foot. The Tate is literally the next building! The apartment is well equipped, stylish and comfortable. We have had a wonderful stay and already booked for next year.

A delightful property with underneath private parking. Stunning views especially from the bedroom looking over towards the Island and the harbour. Highly recommended and would rebook this property again. Very friendly and helpful staff at Aspects

We had a lovely stay at Christmas in this great place and perfect location. So lovely as always in St Ives. Good views, but not quite as good as the property above where we stayed the year before. Not sure how the new build progressing in front will effect these views.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad to hear that you had a great Christmas break here. From the information that we have been given, the views should not be affected, due to the land being on a significant slope. The height of the new building is due to be just above the road level. If we find out anything different to this as it progresses, we will update our details immediately and contact anyone that has already booked the property. Tanya, Customer Services

Fabulous location a few minutes walk from the town and beaches. We were able to park and forget the car; lovely to have secure car parking even though the garage door is a little stiff and awkward to use. A bonus being able to unload the car in the dry. It was a very comfortable apartment for the two of us.

A great spacious well equipped apartment. It’s in a great location and the garage underneath for parking is a great bonus.Would definitely recommend.

The apartment was perfectly situated to spend time in St Ives, very comfortable and clean will definitely return.

Good location and parking. Roomy accommodation well appointed. Balcony a little smaller than expected. Would recommend otherwise

1 The Galleries is a comfortable, spacious apartment within short walking distance from the town and Porthmeor beach. We found it an excellent place to stay, with the added bonus of easy parking underneath the building. We are returning next year as we enjoyed it so much!

Porthmeor Galleries 1 is perfectly situated with stunning views from both the main bedroom and living area. The apartment is well furnished, spotlessly clean and excellent Wi-fi. Having on site secure garage parking is a definite bonus. We have made a provisional booking for next year.

This was our 2nd visit to the apartment and we were not disappointed. Handy for beaches and town and on site parking - whats not to like?

Aspects is highly recommended. Always very helpful and responsive. Would highly recommend.

A well located spacious apartment with excellent views and a parking space - which is a big plus in the middle of St. Ives. There are short walks to the Harbour and Porthmeor beach, although the steep paths and steps may make it difficult for someone with mobility difficulties. We would recommend this apartment and the team at Aspects Holidays who were helpful and professional both before and during our stay. We have booked to return to the property next year.

We had an excellent week at the Galleries. Had everything we needed. The showers were great. It’s in a good position looking down over the rooftops to St Ives harbour on one side and the beach on the other. It is a steep walk down so not for those with mobility problems. Having a parking place was a real bonus.

Really great property with great view across St ives Parking is a really bonus and the location is great for getting to the harbour Will definitely be back

This apartment is in a great location. The flat is warm and welcoming with everything you need. Waking up to the views over St Ives is just beautiful.

Porthmeor Galleries 1 is perfectly situated with stunning views from the main bedroom and living area. The apartment is well furnished with everything you could possibly need. Having on site secure parking is a definite bonus! We will certainly be booking again.

Nice, well situated property. Literally minutes from Fore Street or Porthmeor Beach depending on which downhill winding path you take. Comfortable stay with it’s own secure parking space.

Great location, just a short stroll from the harbour as well as Porthmeor beach. Magnificent views from master bedroom and livingroom.

A well positioned, well equipped and comfortable property. We had a great stay and would be very happy to return.

A stylish comfortable apartment in a fantastic location.

Excellent property for 4, adults or mixed adults and children.
