Six Crusoes
Porthmeor, St Ives

£364 - £803 per week

Situated opposite Porthmeor beach, Six Crusoes is an ideal apartment for couples wanting to be within feet of the surf and sand and only a short stroll along the cobbled Digey to the heart of St Ives. Everything you could possibly want on holiday is on your door step; restaurants, pubs and bars, the neighbouring Tate Gallery, shops and the fabulous working harbour where boat rides and sight-seeing trips run from. If you prefer a little quiet, and would love to explore some sheltered coves along the coastal path, you are ideally placed to head in the direction of Zennor where the views are nothing short of spectacular whatever the weather.

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.

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.
