A great place for a stay in St Ives - especially as it had two parking spaces. Very convenient for the town centre and we had some wonderful panoramic views as we sat on the wicker chairs on the balcony! We were a 15 minute walk away from the Tate on one side and Porthminster Beach on the other. The steep stairs back were manageable by our mixed aged party although we did discover a slightly longer and more gradual ascent which we used more frequently. The beds were very comfortable. You certainly need to heed the 'Mind Your Head' sign as the eaves could take you unawares. Would definitely book again.

Beautiful views from main bedroom, kitchen and sitting room. Very therapeutic to sit on the sofa and watch the sea. And a pleasure to look out the kitchen window while washing up!

Feb 2020

Lovely stay over christmas here. Lovely location. Amazing views. Facilities provided were fantastic. Needed a better clean before arrival. That did let it down as the cleaner had not cleaned the sinks or bathroom properly. I cleaned it all myself to get previous peoples hairs up.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are very sorry if the standard of cleanliness was not to the usual high level that you would have expected from the properties that we market; we can only apologise if any areas had been missed. Having now received this feedback, we will follow up on this with the cleaner, so thank you for your comments. It's great to hear that you had a lovely Christmas break and enjoyed all of the facilities on offer there. Tanya, Customer Services

Smeaton's View is becoming a second home to us.Don't believe there is a nicer property in the whole of St Ives!

Another great holiday at Smeaton's View, breath taking views, a great place to sit and watch the world go by and the tide come in and out.

Sep 2019

We had a brilliant two week stay at Smeaton’s View, it is a lovely light and airy apartment with the best view of the bay. Ample parking and plenty of room for everyone. The children loved having the garden to play in whilst we relaxed on the balcony. We walked down into town in a couple of minutes using the steps, although we soon found a quicker and less vertical route!

Aug 2019

Just had a wonderful week at Smeatons view, spectacular views, made all the steps into the town worth while. Very clean and tidy, would recommend it and would be happy to stay there again next time we are in St Ives.

May 2019

A beautifully decorated property with a stunning location. It was difficult to tear ourselves away from the balconies and the views but when we did it was really cosy and welcoming. We hope to return again in warmer weather!

May 2019

We had the most fantastic week in Smeaton's View - so good that by Thursday we had been and booked for next year! The views are wonderful, and if you don't want to go anywhere - just sit and look at the view!

Oct 2018

Sep 2018

Very nice property with fantastic views of st ives

Sep 2018

Aug 2018

Smeatons view is a beautiful holiday apartment. The views are amazing from all rooms in the property. The property is well equipped and has everything you need for a break away. I have stayed in other property's in st ives and nothing compares to smeatons view. I have stayed there 4 times now and would defiantly like to stay there again in the future. I would certainly recommended this property to family and friends it's wonderful. I should also mention that this property is only a short walk from some great shops, bars and restaurants.

Mar 2018

Amazing views on a clear day of all angles of St Ives.

Sep 2017

Fantastic views and comfortable flat with two long convenient flights of steps to get you down into the town, in 5 minutes, which are a decreasing challenge as your fitness improves on the way home!

Jul 2017

We enjoyed our short break at Smeatons View. Location was superb for us. Weather was kind and the views were amazing. Would definitely book again.

It is hard to beat the views from the apartment.

Beautiful views

Aug 2016

Smeatons view is an amazing place to stay. My first stay was 3 years ago and I have returned once a year since. The views from the property are out of this world. The property is very clean and well equipped with things you may need on your holiday. The town centre is also very close to smeatons view roughly 10 minutes walk. There are plenty of places to eat and drink in the town centre. Over all my stay at smeatons view has been great and no doubt I will be returning there next year.

Mar 2016

The views are amazing, you are away from all the crowds in the town and the walk back up keeps you fit!

Sep 2015

We love our stays at Smeaton's View.
