Additional information

parking for one average size car, please note that parking is next to another property's space in an enclosed bay so there is a possibility it can be tight, the width of the whole bay which includes the other space is 14ft wide - we would therefore ask you not to park your car in this space if it is wider than 6ft, gas central heating, utility cupboard with washing machine and tumble dryer. Please note; the hill to the beach is steep and may not be suitable for elderly or people with limited mobility, short breaks available.

 
 

This apartment has amazing views - in our opinion, probably the best in St Ives. The flat itself is very large, and has plenty of room for a family of 4. The balcony is fantastic too, and is a great addition to the property with the views it has. It is well equipped and has everything you need for a holiday. We were slightly concerned beforehand about the parking as there had been many comments about it, but we found it fine. It can be a little tight, but I had no problems parking or getting out at all throughout the holiday even with a family estate car. The closeness to the beach was great for us, and the walk into town is fine too. I would happily recommend this property to anyone. On an additional note, I also found the whole booking process with Aspects very easy and friendly - so would also recommend them to someone wanting to book a holiday in St Ives!

Who needs a telly when you have a view like that ! Had a wonderful time at this lovely flat . The kitchen was very well equipped though have to admit we did eat out a lot in the many lovely restaurants that St Ives has to offer . Thank you to all at Aspects Holidays !

May 2019

We absolutely loved our stay in this flat! The view from the living room is absolutely stunning, whatever the weather and we loved having breakfast on the balcony, even in April! The flat is spacious and well equipped, with everything we needed for our stay. Our two year old very much enjoyed staying there and it was very safe for her to walk around, with just a couple of steps in the hallway once inside the flat. The location of the flat is great for the beach, which is just a very short walk down the hill. The parking space was quite tight but fine for our car. We very much appreciated having our car right outside the flat as we know parking spaces are like gold dust in St Ives! We will definitely be going back.

Apr 2019

Great location near to Porthminster beach, fantastic views, comfortable beds and quiet apartment. Heating worked well. En-suite and family bathroom which was great. Oven and TV very good, we really enjoyed our stay and the great weather in St Ives. Aspects service was very good.

Apr 2019

We spent nearly three weeks in this property. It is a very comfortable and well-equipped apartment with magnificent views across Porthminster Beach. The apartment has a private entrance from the car parking space which involves walking down one flight of quite steep concrete steps. This is not a problem for able bodied persons but could be difficult for disabled or "mature" persons. The alternative is to enter from the front of the house, which is very welcoming, and walking up three easy flights of stairs. This apartment is well maintained and we would recommend it. We would certainly like to stay there again.

Dec 2018

The view from flat is truly amazing - had a lovely holiday

Oct 2018

The cottage was lovely and perfect for us. The location couldn’t be better and the views are incredible. The apartment was a very good size and even though the parking is tight, we never struggled to get our medium sized vehicle in or out.

Oct 2018

My family and I stayed here for two weeks in September. It’s a wonderful flat with great views. When the weather is nice it’s great sitting on the balcony and watching the waves roll in. I would certainly return to this property. Steep hill up from the beach but great for burning of that sausage roll from the beach cafe.

Sep 2018

Excellent cottage thoroughly recommend to anyone, its really home from home and the views are amazing

Apr 2018

Lovely location, lovely views.

Aug 2016

This is a lovely apartment with a nice modern contemporary feel and excellent views over st Ives town, the harbour and porthminster beach. The location is excellent with only a short walk down an access road to the lovely porthminster beach with its cafes and shop to keeps you catered for all day. The train station is nearby for trips elsewhere and the short walk into town is quite a leisurely and very scenic one. All in all this is an excellent apartment and we will be happy to return to again next year.

Jul 2016

Perfect for a couple or family, ideally situated close to the beach and town but far back enough to enjoy a wonderful view of the sea!

Sep 2015

I would like to say that the property is fantastic however don't count on being able to park your car when you arrive if the other person hiring the other flat gets there before you !

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are very sorry to hear that you had such difficulties with your parking space. The space is shared with another property and comfortably fits 2 average sized cars; 1 for each property, which we clearly state on the description. Fortunately the issue that you experienced is not common. Whilst we can't control the action of others, if they do not adhere to the guide on the parking space; we have added very specific information and guidance on the website description, which we hope will help prevent a similar situation. Thank you for letting us know and we are glad to hear that you liked Flat 3, 14 Draycott. Tanya, Customer Services

Lovely apartment,lovely location.Car parking space a bit of a challenge but otherwise great.

Aug 2015

Amazing views. Excellent location for five min walk to St Ives and on the best beach in the area Porthminster. Excellent equipment in the apartment. Childrens room near external door however and parking spaced shared and tight. Would stay here again and recommend.

Jul 2015

The views and location are stunning, one of the best I've stayed in anywhere.
