Good property and very roomy .Parking easy and all in all good value.

Beautiful spacious apartment with amazing views over st Ives bay, car parking on site which is a big plus. 10 minute walk into st Ives and short walk to beach. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a great apartment close to Porthminster Beach with fabulous views and a lovely balcony that catches the afternoon sun. Parking is easy and the apartment is smart and well appointed with everything needed to make your stay a great one. It is a 10 minute walk into town either by road or the path along the beach - highly recommended

Lovely large apartment. Well equipped and comfortable . Great to have parking and wonderful views. Would stay there again. Sadly no functioning oven for 4 days but then it was fixed.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were so sorry that the oven took a while to fix. Unfortunately, the replacement hinges took a little while to get here. We hope that you still got on ok with the grill, hobs, and microwave. It certainly sounds like you enjoyed your time there and we hope to see you back soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Great location and accomodation

Nice spacious property with beautiful sea views and outside space. Parking although provided which is good, it is a little tight in getting in and out at the entrance.

Poor communication to the customer

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to hear that you had not picked up the information on the G7 summit until a couple of days into your stay. With a huge number of bookings taking place during that period and the impact to each guest being different depending on where you were staying and what dates guests were here, it was not possible for us to call each guest with specific information, so we sent out emails with all the details so that every guest could find what was most relevant to them. We appreciate that not everyone will check emails every day, but we were trying our best to make sure that as many people got as much relevant information as soon as we had it. We are sorry if all the preparation on the roads and the street closures caused any issues for you, but we hope that you still had a great time here. Tanya, Customer Services

If you are happy walking , porthia bay is an excellent choice to stay in . The house is very spacious and well positioned . The view from the bedroom window is spectacular, waking up listening to the waves is very satisfying . Would definitely come back

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 !
