We will rebook for next year we loved it. Superb views and very comfortable. Good wi fi and comfy beds Very convenient for the town centre and has off street parking.

Lovely property. The view of the harbour from the flat is absolutely beautiful and it's great to have a parking space and be only 10 minutes walk from the town centre. Also really close to Porthminster beach and the south coast path. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and is spacious and very well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing break. It is on one of the main roads into St Ives so occasionally you are aware of traffic sounds, especially when sitting on the balcony - quiet later in the evening though. Would definitely stay again. 

Lovely property, lovely location, lovely holiday

A very well appointed flat with marvellous views. Just up from Porthminster Beach, so very easy to get into town. Great to have on-site parking.

Loved our stay in Porthia Bay, good location and lovely views from the flat Kitchen very well equipped and the flat was spacious and comfortable would certainly return

Wonderful view and mostly very private. Porthia Bay is very light and open and provides all the required facilities for a comfortable holiday.

Aspect are an amazing company, they are always at hand if you need anything, nothing is too much trouble, they're fab. We all had a wonderful holiday and will book again next year with them, thank you.

If you enjoy a location with a amazing view this is the property for you! we have visited twice now and cannot see us renting anywhere else.... lovely and clean. and aspects were amazing to help with our wedding arrangements thank you Sue Kind regards Jackie and Dave Bowen

Really enjoyed our stay. Wonderful views from lounge and en suite bedroom. Very light, spacious yet cosy. Well equipped kitchen. Felt a home from home. Great walks from the front door to beaches and coast paths. Would come again.

There was a problem with the property we had originally booked, but Aspects staff found us an alternative that more than lived up to our expectations. It was handy that their pickup office isn't in St Ives as there isn't a problem with parking. Had a great week in St Ives and the sun shone on us every day. Lots of walking and not too many pasties. 10 out of 10

Loved Porthia Bay. So clean and had everything you needed there. Perfect location and very well managed. Thank you

Very unhappy with the building site next door

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were really sorry to read this. I hope that I can reassure you that we always try to be as honest and transparent as possible and would never intentionally have neglected to inform you about anything that may impact upon your stay. We had been aware of the site next door and had been monitoring it very closely for a while. Up until the time of your stay, it had all been of a type and to a level where it had not impacted guests, but as soon as we were made aware of the level of activity increasing, we set about contacting the guests due to arrive on your departure day, and the following week. We are very sorry, we honestly had not been aware of the extent that you were being impacted upon, and have since been in contact to personally apologise. Tanya, Customer Services. * UPDATE- We are pleased to confirm that the neighbouring site has now been completed*

Porthia Bay is a fantastic apartment with spectacular views . I could live there permanently ?? Would definitely book again !
