Priceless! This is the only way to describe the views devoured from the bedrooms and living areas of this luxury first floor apartment. Drink in the turquoise blue sea views, the charming and arresting sights of St Ives harbour and The Island, or watch the precious moments of parading dolphins in the bay. Each apartment has been thoughtfully designed and furnished to offer something that everybody will love.

Luxury beds, bedding, furniture and kitchen equipment all go a very long way to ensuring a great night's sleep and plenty of restfulness throughout your holiday. All of St Ives finest restaurants are within easy reach with the St Ives Harbour & Spa being your nearest followed by Porthminster café, both of which offer some of the finest food, wine and of course breath-taking views. No need to be snarled up in town traffic either as Morwenstow apartments are located just below Tregenna Castle with its 18 hole golf course, so a simple right turn off the main road into St Ives brings you right to your door of these luxurious apartments.

We love staying at this property and have stayed 4 years in a row. It has great parking, very clean, comfortable and absolutely stunning views. We loved having breakfast on the balcony every morning with stunning st Ives around us.

We felt that they took covid very seriously and felt confident in the processes out in place and the extra cleaning.

We’ve already booked for next year and can’t wait to come back.

Take binoculars if you are interested in the possibility of seeing dolphins and sea lions swim past out at sea as you eat breakfast as we did. This is a luxury apartment in a lovely location where you can park and not use the car for the duration of your stay in St Ives if you so wish. It is a 15 minute stroll in to the town centre along the road or coastal path which leads from the property. It is a bit of an incline for those not too mobile. Top quality linen and equipment throughout, all you need to self cater. Views delightful.

Feb 2020

This is the second time that we have stayed at this property. We will definitely be back for a third time. The sea views from the apartment are breathtaking.

Oct 2019

Excellent service from Aspects. Everything is done efficiently with no hassle from booking the apartment to staying and enjoying the holiday.

Sep 2019

I cannot fault this property. The view was amazing, the apartment spotless and well equipped, the comfort of the beds, it all exceeded our expectations. I would imagine this particular apartment would probably be one of the best of the Morwenstow ones, as it is almost at the top, so the view is completely uninterrupted. We particularly enjoyed the location, being a little bit out of the hub of central St. Ives. It is easily walkable in maybe 10 minutes, but it was so nice to be able to retreat to the peace and tranquility of being on top of the bay. It also meant that the winds were very cooling after being in the heat of the beach. There was a rather strenuous walk back up the hill back to the apartment, especially with children but we came to enjoy it and work off our ice creams! It was great to have parking, wifi etc, so a great place to use as a base. This beach is great for kids also, the surf never got too rough, has all the facilities, overall, a great location.

Aug 2019

We’ve stayed in many different properties in the area over the years, and each time it’s hard to imagine how our most recent experience could be surpassed, but Above the Bay certainly delivered on that.

The photos of the apartment appear to have been taken on a cloudy day, so the place is actually much brighter in reality, which is a bonus as I think it’s always preferable to have your expectations exceeded. The view from the balcony is just stunning and has to be one of the best vantage points for enjoying St Ives Bay.

We were blessed with a warm week so we needed the windows open all the time, but it was lovely to wake to the sound of the sea. If you are visiting in the cooler months I imagine this would be a very cosy apartment.

There is a housekeeper who looks after all of the apartments in the complex, and she seems to be around most of the time which is handy if you have any questions or issues. We found the standard of cleaning to be high.

Jul 2019

We really enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to come back. The apartment is very clean and beautifully situated at the top of the hill for stunning views from when you wake up to when you go to sleep. Parking is safe and easy which isn’t always the case in st Ives. We can’t wait to come back.

May 2019

This is a fantastic luxurious apartment, amazing bathrooms. The location is great, an easy picturesque walk into St Ives although it is a steep walk back.

Apr 2019

Great location , accommodation is first class

Apr 2019

Thank you for the most lovely relaxing stay in your apartment. The views were to die for and we even saw seals playing in the sea on a daily basis!! Amazing. The location between St Ives and Carbis Bay was perfect. We enjoyed some lovely walks along the coastal path from the gate at the bottom of your immaculately kept gardens into St Ives and Carbis Bay, The beds were so comfortable and the lovely touches of flowers, wine and biscuits made of short break perfect. We will definitely be back. Thank you

Feb 2019

Magnificent views of the St. Ives Bay and Godrevy lighthouse. Well kept gardens and a comfortable and spotlessly clean property.

A very comfortable apartment with spectacular views of the bay. There was ample space in the gated car park - a real bonus in St Ives.

Aug 2017

Would recommend this apartment for the high standard of presentation, stunning view and ease of parking. We will be booking again.

Accommodation was immaculate, views were breathtaking and we would not hesitate to recommend to our family and friends.

Sep 2016

Spacious, luxurious, amazing view and a very short (steep) walk to the wonderful Porthminster beach (go to the cafe for breakfast, a real holiday treat). We love St Ives and our stay at Morwenstow 16 made it all the more perfect. It is the perfect self catering accommodation for those who like the luxury of a hotel. Highly recommended.

Aug 2016

Aspect Holidays are an absolute joy to deal with and the apartment was fabulous. Thank you so much!
