Porthmeor The Galleries - Azure
Porthmeor, St Ives

£554 - £1628 per week

Light and airy second floor apartment with oak floors, original artwork and contemporary furnishings, Azure overlooks Porthmeor beach and the Tate Gallery, sharing its incredible view. From the stylish interior and enclosed balcony, panoramic views over St Ives, Porthmeor beach and across to Godrevy can be enjoyed. The Galleries are perfectly situated just a short walk from the harbour front and Porthmeor beach.

PLEASE NOTE: There are two projects taking place within Godrevy Gardens, which is on the land opposite the entrance. This is expected to restrict views from properties located on Godrevy Terrace, looking out toward the Island due to a covering going over the approved dimensions for two apartments, expected to go up in 2024. The projects are expected to take place up until Easter 2026 with activities, seen, heard, and felt throughout the duration. Please get in touch with our customer services team for further information before booking.

This was our third stay at Azure. The apartment is clean, warm and comfortable with probably the best views in St Ives. It's up a steep hill whichever way you go, as is much of St Ives. As has been mentioned before, the garage door could be a challenge, but there is nothing can be done about that. You can unload your car in the garage as there is a door to the lobby and where the lift is situated. There is building work going on opposite but this did not cause us any issues or noise, although I know that can change. We will no doubt be back at some point. A lovely apartment all round.

Welcome back to Azure! We are pleased you had another lovely stay enjoying those stunning views. Thank you for letting us know about your difficulties with the garage door, we have previously informed the management company for the building about this and will continue to chase this up. It's great to hear that you were not disturbed by the nearby building project, the builders working are very conscious of the residential area around the site. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Katy, Customer Services.

This apartment was great. It is in an amazing location-just 3 minutes to Fore Street or 3 minutes to Porthmeor beach and it has amazing views ( as at September 2023 )

Quite steep hills to get up to the apartment but the views make it all worthwhile. The apartment was very nice.

A lovely two weeks at Azure, fantastic views of beaches and harbour and just a short walk into town. Hope to return next year

Excellent apartment with wonderful views. Comfortable and spacious. Good parking under the property too.

Best views in St Ives. 5 Minutes walk from a fabulous beach and 5 minutes from the harbour and shops. Easy to get to by car without getting caught in town centre traffic. W are biased having been before and will certainly be going again.

This is our second visit to Azure. It is a lovely apartment with great views over Porthmeor and of the town and harbour. I doubt there are better views over St Ives than from this apartment. Very well decorated with some lovely art work. Not a lot of storage in the kitchen. No empty spare cabinets. Beds are comfortable. Cleaned to a satisfactory standard. Parking is great but the garage door can be tricky. You need to be able to unlock it at ground level and then lift it up with both hands with a bit of strength. There is a lift just off the garage area so you can unload down there. We would certainly return to this apartment.

We are glad that you had another enjoyable stay at this property. You certainly do get some great views from there. Thanks for your helpful comments. All feedback is automatically sent to owners for their consideration. The communal external areas are the responsibility of a block management company, who had been informed about the difficulty of the garage door previously. We will keep nagging them in the hope that they do something to make this a little easier to use soon. Thanks again and we hope to see you back again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

A great place with amazing views, very comfortable and well equipped. Brilliant location. The car park underneath is great and the lift a good help. (Sliding door does need attention as very stiff and fiddly to lock/unlock.)

Thanks for your feedback and we are glad that you enjoyed your time here. We will pass on this information to the management company who are responsible for the communal area maintenance. Thanks for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Services

This location is to be recommended. The location, facilities including car parking make this a very attractive holiday destination

A great apartment in a wonderful location.

We love the location, it's the best place to view all of St.Ives: beaches, town and harbour. The parking space below the appartement is a plus, parking in St. Ives is usually a problem. We will return.

Really perfect apartment. We have stayed there before. Aspects organisation is professional, efficient and friendly. Thank you!

Wonderful stay in lovely, comfortable apartment. Panoramic views are amazing from all windows. We will be back next year. Only negative about it is the garage, take care not to get locked in as opening the garage door from inside is difficult.

Azure is a dream ?? the views are stunning, being able to see both ends of porthmeor, the harbour & porthminster from windows, is just magical ? So lovely to have 2 bathrooms & a bit of a luxury to have a dishwasher & a lift to use No issues at all with garage or parking, really easy & so convenient I would like to add that the building work isn't an issue at all, the builders were super friendly & considerate, they didn't start work till 8am which was perfect for getting us up & about, not wasting the morning, not even that much noise anyway. We like to stay somewhere different every time visiting St Ives but we will 100% stay here again Thanks Aspects ??

The view over the town is quite the best available, well worth the price of the steep hill climb up to The Galleries.

The garage door is rather stiff and cannot be pulled up from the inside. Be careful you don't get locked in the garage; the back door to the bin area can be opened from within without a key if you do!

The builders opposite are considerate and polite and were there from 7.45am in February. It was fascinating to watch this long derelict land being prepared for a new build.

Thank you for letting us know about the garage door. We will pass that information straight on to the management company who are responsible for maintaining the communal areas of this building. And we are glad to hear that the builders are still being very considerate. We are glad that you enjoyed those beautiful views; they certainly are a great reward for the walk back to the property after a fun day of exploring; we are glad you liked it. Tanya, Customer Services

We loved the apartment it was great, views as expected, warm and cozy. It will be interesting to see what happens with the building works in front. We would definitely return.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thanks for your review. We are glad that you liked it here. From the information that we have been given, it is a large project that will be ongoing for a while and anyone impacted by this has been notified, and if anything changes, we will keep guests informed. It certainly won't be affecting views from Azure due to the land being on a significant slope. The height of the new building is due to be just above the road level. Thanks again for your comments and hopefully we will see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Fantastic week at 4 The Galleries! Apartment was perfect, clean with lots of natural light & all the amenities needed, brilliant views over the beach & St Ives. Walking distance to everything needed. Having the parking space was great as parking very limited everywhere else. Would recommend The Seafood Cafe in town, great lunch in there. Great pizza at little place far end of Porthmeor Beach too. Would recommend this place to anyone & would certainly book again when next visiting! ??

Enjoyed a lovely week at this property. Views are stunning from every window. Property very well equipped. Really good to be able to park the car. Would definitely return here.

Lovely apartment with probably the best views in St Ives. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Very quiet and in a great location. Nice and warm and comfortable. Would certainly go again. Parking was a great bonus, although the roller shutter garage door could be a challenge to some. A lovely apartment which I would book again.

Excellent week here and the views are outstanding. The kitchen is well equipped and the apartment was very clean. Just be careful with the lock on the garage door - it was difficult to open - especially from the inside.

However - we would definitely stay again (and we are very fussy).

Well appointed flat in a good location just minutes from everything along with stunning views from all rooms.

Amazing 2 weeks in this fabulous apartment is St Ives. The views from all the large windows in all the rooms is second to none and the sunsets from the living room were stunning. The apartment is very light and airy and has all the amenities you need from the much needed undercover car park space to a fully kitted out kitchen and comfy beds. It was also spotlessly clean and was very quiet, no traffic noise or noisy neighbours and a perfect base for exploring beautiful St Ives and surrounding area or just sitting and watching the comings and goings in the harbour and beaches. Would definitely recommend this place and have already re booked for next year. Thankyou Aspects for a lovely much needed holiday in these difficult times

an excellent property for the family in a great location

View was beautiful and was very clean.

Outstanding views. It was a delight to sit in chairs in living room and observe the changing sky and tides.

This flat is in a fabulous location; fabulous views of nearly all the beaches, and very close to the town centre.

A lovely apartment in a great setting

This was absolutely amazing, thank you so much. The apartment was absolutely spotless, had everything you could think of. Communication with Aspects was perfect and we were provided with the information we needed. We are looking at dates already to re book this apartment again for next year.

Stunning views from every angle. Beautiful clean, modern apartment in very quiet residential area. A 5 minutes walk into the quaint old town. Everything within a short walk.....beach, cliff walks, restaurants. What more could you ask for?

Wonderful views of St. Ives, down and across the town, over the harbour and up to the island. The side views over the beach were awesome, no need for a TV just watch the life outside. Modern, clean and airy apartment with all mod cons. Loved the under floor heating in the bathroom and the locker downstairs for beach stuff. Quiet neighbours and no traffic, perfect.

This apartment provides comfort, convenience and views to die for whatever the weather, but when you get blue skies and sunshine it is perfection.

The location was fantastic with both beach and town just minutes away. It's elevated position gives the most amazing views of the Harbour and Porthmeor Beach but not so high up the hill for returns to the apartment to be too arduous! Tastefully appointed with comfortable beds and great showers, we couldn't ask for any better.

Fantastic apartment great panoramic views and close to all amenities a real gem

Probably the best views in St Ives.
