Our apartment was amazing with fan static views, good equipment and very comfortable.

Jul 2019

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the property, it was spotless, well appointed with stunning views, very difficult to fault. Quite a long walk into St Ives up and down steep hills which my 4 year old son and heavily pregnant wife did negotiate but we did end up parking on the pier a few times to make life easier. We will happily return to the property.

Jun 2019

This is the third time we have had the pure joy of staying in this apartment! The views are breathtaking - the apartment is stunning. Cleanliness spotless. The apartment is beautifully and thoughtfully furnished and contains everything needed to underpin a really wonderful holiday. The prosecco and white wine are additional luxuries! Staying in Starboard Lookout is truly 'living the dream' and I couldn't recommend it highly enough!

Jun 2019

A beautiful property with stunning views. Clean, well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and we had a lovely holiday in St Ives.

May 2019

Wonderful apartment with stunning views. Exceeded our expectations. Very well-equipped and comfortable. Lovely to be so close to town and still have parking.

Nov 2018

We have enjoyed two holidays now at Starboard Lookout and can't wait to return! The apartment has definitely got the 'wow' factor in every respect, with breathtaking sea views from the balcony. It is spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. You literally only need to take your clothes and toiletries! You are welcomed with fresh flowers, wine and biscuits and there are folders containing all the information you will need to make the most of your holiday, including where to find the best beaches, restaurants and shops.The security of the apartment complex is another big plus, as well as the provision of a car parking place within the grounds. The apartment gardens are beautiful and well maintained and the gate leads directly onto a coastal path which will take you to stunning Porthminster Beach, or Carbis Bay, or a lovely walk directly into St Ives. It really is a beautiful place!

Aug 2018

This house is a perfect hide-away that keeps you still closely embedded in the charming site of St. Ives. You have the entire city in beautiful site without being overwhelmed by any noise or trouble. Yet you are just a few steps away from entering the middle of the action if you so wish. Lovely beaches are most easily to be reached with a few meters walking. Simply perfect.

Jul 2018

We have enjoyed the most wonderful holiday in a stunning apartment overlooking St Ives bay. The apartment was beautifully furnished and equipped and absolutely spotless. The location was stunning and the views from the apartment balcony amazing. The efficiency of Aspects holidays administration top class. You can book this apartment with complete confidence! It is worth every penny!!

Jun 2018

Fantastic weekend in an apartment that exceeded our expectations. Beautifully done, very high quality, pure luxury, loved throwing open the doors to let the coast in. Fabulous for walks, accommodation was both spacious and spotless. We will definitely return. Thank you so much.

Nov 2017

This was a beautiful flat with amazing views of Porthminster Beach. Everything was so convenient. It was a short walk to the beach and the Super Tesco was a short easy walk too. Debbie and her cleaning crew were awesome! They took care of us on our early arrival and held our bags for us in the flat while they were completing the cleaning. They even suggested a great place for us to grab a wonderful crab sandwich. The service was fantastic. Thank you so much for the wonderful accommodation. We will be back again and for sure will rent 12 Morwenstow again.

Sep 2017

Lovely property with brilliant access to the beach and St Ives (manageable for a 6 year old and an old age pensioner!)

Jul 2017

This property has amazing views and easy access to Porthminster Beach yet is quiet and calm away from the centre of St Ives. Parking and proximity to the supermarket are a bonus.

Jul 2017

On arrival we were blown away! The quality of the building, property, cleanliness were simply second to none. The views were simply outstanding and being such a short walk from St Ives meant it was so convenient for the restaurents! In all honesty we could have quite happily moved in!

Apr 2017

Excellent high spec apartment close to the beach, ideal for families and couples. Having rented other properties in the area this is amongst the best and we plan to return again

Oct 2016

We loved our stay at Starboard Lookout. The apartment was luxurious and the views incredible. We had a few nights in with our young sons and never felt we were missing out as we sipped wine looking at the views through the bifold doors

Sep 2016

Our expectations of the apartment were high, but it actually exceeded these. We were all delighted with the location and facilities at Morwenstow 12, the standard of the equipment/appliances within the apartment and it's cleanliness. We posted quite a few pictures on social media which received a fantastic response and created a lot of interest. Even down to the A4 binder with 'useful information' - we did have to refer to this for instructions for some of the appliances and I needed to see a Doctor whilst we were away, and everything we needed was in the folder :) Miele appliances were fantastic, wonderfully comfortable beds with excellent quality bedding and ample white fluffy towels. We also loved the Bose sound system! The view from the open plan/lounge area is stunning and we made full use of the balcony - enjoying the views over the bay.
