Great location overlooking Porthmear beach. Beware if staying in winter, as windows become very noisy and drafty when windy.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback. Just to reassure you in case you are staying here again; it is not always like that. Whilst any property right next to the sea like Six Crusoes is, will likely feel the force of the wind blowing straight onto it, more than those set further back; you were here during a storm, so it will have been more noticeable. When you are not in the middle of a storm, it is a very calm and relaxing spot overlooking the famous Porthmeor Beach, but if you do enjoy a spot of storm watching, this is a perfect place for a front row seat when they do hit. We hope that you enjoyed it. Tanya, Customer Services

Aspects are great, but this flat smells of mould and needs updating.

We have booked an alternative flat for our next Aspects stay.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to read that this property is not somewhere that you would return to. We have never had any mention of a mould smell before, but we will keep a close eye on further feedback and check on this when we inspect the property next. Thank you for letting us know. We try to provide a wide range of properties that will suit the differing needs, tastes, and budgets of guests. The style of decor in this property is more basic than in others but is as shown on the website and has been priced accordingly and should still always be maintained to a high level, but we will of course check on all of this on the next inspection too as a lot can happen in a short space of time in properties. Thanks again and we will look forward to seeing you back here soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Our second stay at this property. The views are spectacular, the location second to none and the price is very affordable. Comfortable with everything you need.

Great location Stunning views

This property is everything you need to make your holiday in St Ives perfect. Well equipped with all you could want during your stay and with outstanding views you couldn’t ask for anything more. The service the Aspects team provide from the start to the end of your holiday is amazing.

This property has an amazing view. It does have quite a few narrow steps up to the property, which may cause a problem for some guests.

The overall cleanliness of the property was very poor, something I do not expect - and especially not during a Pandemic - Aspects have been made aware of the issues.

I wouldn't hesitate to use Aspects again - they carried our booking over from last year due to Covid without any problems at all. Their out of ours team also dealt with my call within the timescale stated.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were so sorry to hear this. I can see that you let us know about the cleaning on your departure. We have since followed up with the housekeeper, but it is such a shame that we were not aware of this when you contacted the out of hours phone holder that first night. We would always expect that guests arrive to their chosen property to find that it has been cleaned to a very high standard, in a pandemic or not, and if a guest feels that it is not clean enough, we will do everything possible to put that right for you. Although it is difficult for us to assess after the holiday has taken place, we would like to apologise if any areas had been missed. Thank you for your comments. Tanya, Customer Services

Six Crusoes what a fantastic little place, waking up to the sound of the sea and amazing views ! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay close to the local shop Norway Stores and just down the Digey and you have all the shops and the Harbour perfectly situated .

Aspects always leave a welcome pack so after the long journey you have tea coffee and milk in the fridge which is a most welcome gesture:)

Thankyou I will be booking again soon

I had an excellent stay in Six Crusoes, it's the perfect place to stay in St Ives located seconds away from Porthmeor beach and very near to the main parts of St Ives. The bed was very comfy, apartment was very clean and welcoming and everything I needed was in there. The views from the windows were amazing, couldn't tear myself away from them especially the sunsets. I didn't want to leave!

Our stay at Crusoes was lovely. The flat was clean and fresh and quite enough room for 2. Bed was comfy which is always a bonus. The sea view was wonderful and the shops were handy. We were concerned about the 21 steps outside to get to the flat , but they were not a problem at all. Great holiday!!!

If you love the sea, to see and hear it, being just across the road from Porthmeor Beech this is the place to stay. It's also very convenient for exploring the rest of St Ives. Would definitely stay here again!

Have booked Aspects properties over 10 years & we always have a wonderful stay & always get an amazing service from Aspects! I would highly recommend them to any one & can always rely on a perfect place to stay when booking through them :-) ?? ??????????

Had an amazing stay here. Apartment was better than the photos, furniture had been updated. Location is excellent and the sea view superb from every window. Shower was great and bed very comfortable. Our daughter has booked it for next year and we also plan to return.

A wonderful location and stunning sea views. We went to sleep to the sound of the waves and woke up to them . Just perfect. We would thoroughly recommend the property.

An amazing holiday home with everything you needed to make your stay just perfect, great location with amazing views.

This was our second time staying at Six Crusoes and we enjoyed it just as much as our first visit. It’s a great sized apartment with everything you need and has stunning views over Porthmeor Beach. Would definitely recommend to couples, will be staying here again

Love staying in this great apartment overlooking Porthmeor Beach.

6 cruises is a lovely little flat in a great location and with great views , however there are areas which need some TLC,and attention.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments, and we are very sorry to hear that you had felt that there were some areas needing a bit of attention.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the great location and absolutely amazing views that you get from this property; it sounds like you had a fantastic time. Thanks again for your feedback. Tanya, Customer Services

A perfect haven for 2 with breath taking views. Great location and so relaxing, going to sleep, listening to the waves and waking up to them in the morning! ??

Six Crusoes is perfect for a couple with a beautiful view of the beach and the location is so close to shops and restaurants. It has a well equipped kitchen, a comfortable bed and two extra stools so you can sit by the windows to watch the ocean crashing on the sands. It is also easy to park nearby to unload before taking your car to a long stay car park.

Such a beautiful view right on the doorstep of Porthmeor beach. Small cosy apartment which had everything we needed

Arriving by train, I collected the keys from the cheerful office staff. I was blown away by the location of the apartment, especially by the rich orange sunset over Porthmeor Beach on the first evening. The compact flat was equipped with everything you would need. The bed was so comfortable! It was great to be able to stroll out of the door, down the steps and into the Digey then Fore Street, and pop back several times a day! Thoroughly recommended.

Although the decor was a little bit dated the position of this property is ideal for a holiday in St Ives.

Great views across the beach. Easy access to all the aminities in St Ives.

Well I had a great time. My niece and family were staying at St Nicholas Court. Their god parents were there too but had to leave unexpectedly. I moved in to their appartement and loved it.. Gorgeous sea views. Have booked for next year! My sister has booked an appartement as has my niece and family... So three already booked!!!

Great location with great sea views, nice clean, well equipped,cosy apartment


Can't wait to return! A lovely apartment, well equipped, with spectacular views. Close to all the main amenities and attractions, yet far enough away to remain quiet and tranquil - superb all round. We had a wonderful New Year stay!

The location and views from the apartment were well worth the money and the location to the beaches and town just perfect x

Six Crusoes is ideal for a couple seeking a small flat with an excellent view of the beach. all the amenities of St Ives are within easy, level walking distance.

So close to the sea the sea and centre of St Ives that location really could not be bettered.

This apartment is lovely the views are stunning a real cosy place to stay easy access to every thing we have already booked to come back.

It's a lovely flat ideal for two people who want to be close to Porthmeor beach. Everything u need is there and it is very clean. Would recommend it and would go back again.

Did not want to leave!!! Loved everything about this appartment especially the view We will definitely return.....Perfect

We have had a wonderful stay at Crusoes. The flat is in the perfect location and very comfortable. We would definitely consider staying again should we return to St Ives in the future.

Six Crusoes is a well furnished and modern apartment with a fabulous view of Portmeor Beach, and an excellent location. Though small, it is carefully planned. and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay.
