Its a lovely flat ! view is to die for Great location ! Bit of a hike up the hill back from the beach but well worth it! You didn’t get any sun at all on the front or the back maybe it was the time of year maybe it’s different when the Sun is higher! I would strongly suggest you get a freezer a small one put in to accommodate people wanting to take ice packs to the beach and keep frozen food ! Most importantly cold drinks on hot days with ice ! as people don’t want to go out every single night! Otherwise fantastic place lovely accommodation comfortable

This is a great property, tastefully decorated and with stunning views. It is a peaceful location within easy walking distance of the town. There is a steep incline on return. Parking is tight and requires reversing in from a busy road. We enjoyed our stay here very much.

We are very sorry to read your comments. As in our own homes, things can go wrong from time to time and we are very sorry that on this occasion, you had this experience. Unfortunately, we had no way of pre-empting these issues but as soon as your concerns were raised, we tried to get it rectified as quickly and best as we could. We hope that despite your disappointment with the property, you still had an enjoyable time exploring St Ives and making the most of a break away and hope that we will have the chance to welcome you back to Cornwall in the future. Lucy, Customer Services

An excellent spacious apartment vith views of Porthminster Beach. And a short walk into St. Ives. Would recommend to family and friends.

The apartment is stunning, very spacious and spotlessly clean. The location is perfect for the beach and walking to and from town. Great to have parking too.

A great week again with Aspects, a couple of issues we had, were resolved very quickly and efficiently. There service is five Star, would sure to recommend them. Lovely spacious apartment, very comfy with everything we needed, beautiful views, and only a short walk to Portminster beach. The only negative was the parking, very small space provided for two cars. Although we wouldn't hestitate to book this apartment again.

We are glad to hear that you had a great week, and thanks for your lovely comments about our service. The parking for this property is a double space, shared with another property and ordinarily fits 2 average sized cars. We try to make it as clear as possible by including measurements, so we are sorry that you found the parking smaller and more challenging than expected. We will continue to keep a close eye on feedback and review the description again if this is needed. Thanks again, and hopefully see you back here soon. Tanya, Customer Services

A fantastic stay once again with Aspects. From collection our keys to the stay in out apartment everything was brilliant! Our apartment was perfect for a family of 4. It was spacious and had everything we needed for a weeks stay. The outdoor seating was an added bonus and had amazing views over Porthminster beach. Great location and lovely property! Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful stay in Flat 1, 14 Draycott Terrace. Beautiful setting and so close to beautiful beaches and the harbour and the apartment was exceptionally clean and roomy. It is accessed via steep steps, so I would recommend packing smaller bags and not heavy suitcases!

We enjoyed our stay in 2017 we decided to come back and stay at 14 Draycott Terrace again. Great location for Porthminster beach. Very comfy flat spacious and clean. Loved sitting on the terrace for hours on end looking out to sea. Would recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in St Ives

Lovely position with fantastic view and a short walk down to the beach Not ideal for anyone with disabilities as the walk back up from the beach is quite steep and long A couple of little bits regards to the property weren’t amazing but on a whole we had a great family holiday!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback; we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time here, despite that walk back up to the property at the end of the day. Unfortunately, much of St Ives is hilly, and whilst that has the benefit of that great view, if hills are going to cause a problem, please do not hesitate to get in contact with one of team who can advise on which properties are located within a level walk to the beaches, shops, galleries and so on. We also wanted to let you know that, since receiving your feedback, we have amended the website description further, to be even clearer about the parking, and the water pressure has since been investigated, and on a further inspection, was all as it should be, so thank you for highlighting these points. Hopefully, we will see you back in Cornwall again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

A fantastic apartment with a truly wonderful view. St. Ives is the stunning setting for our annual extended family holiday. The family have stayed in literally hundreds of properties within the town over recent decades. All were very impressed when they visited our apartment. The apartment was very practical, in a great location and we would definitely love to use it again!

The Jackson ‘Four’ (2 adults, 2 young children)

We liked where we stayed very much,it was kept very clean and was very spacious. It was also close to porthminster beach which is a big and clean with clear sea water.

Perfect home from home! This was our 3rd stay in Flat 1, 14 Draycott Terrace, loved every minute and looking forward to stay number 4 ??

Fantastic location with beautiful views.

A great location with sea views, clean and modern and all on one floor - a great place for a family with young children to stay.

GREAT LOCATION to the beaches and the town center which made us very happy. Great for families with 1-2 children.

Wonderful apartment with lovely sea views. Short walk into St Ives and just minutes from the beach.
