Onshore Apartment The Wharf, St Ives

£909 - £2250 per week

Onshore is a spacious duplex apartment that's perched right above the harbour, where you can enjoy the sights and sounds from the comfort of your sitting room. You'll be able to open your window in the morning, snuggle back into bed and listen to the waves lapping at the edge of the harbour. The apartment even benefits from a terrace area to the back of the property, where you can sit and chill out on an evening with family and friends.

The property is pet friendly and the harbour beach is literally just feet from the door, as well as the year-round dog friendly beach at Lambeth Walk, so it couldn't be more convenient for dog walking. The apartment is located above The Hub restaurant, so if you don't fancy cooking during your stay, you can pop downstairs, or go for a short walk and take your pick of the bunch, as some of the best eateries are within touching distance.

Managed to book this little gem at short notice and couldn’t have been happier. We have been holidaying in St Ives for the last 20 years and this has to be our favourite accommodation. Everything’s very well thought out and clean throughout. Without a doubt the veiw is the star of this property even if you are having a night in you still feel like you are out enjoying the hustle and bustle of the town, my only issue is how booked up it is for next year.

St Ives Harbour

The Wharf, otherwise known as St Ives harbour, is a hive of activity throughout the year. With a continual hustle and bustle on the water and along the harbour front, there is always plenty to do and see while self catering at the Wharf, even at the quieter times of the year.  It’s an ever changing scene so perfect for those artists among you. Don’t forget about the very sheltered, sandy Harbour Beach, a perfect sun-trap in the heart of town and a great place to find seaglass and sea pottery! As night falls at the end of another perfect day, St Ives comes alive with a selection of bars, restaurants and cafés to suit every pocket and every taste in a truly cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Things to do at the Wharf

Boat Trips

Why not enjoy the scenery by boat and explore the coastline with an excursion with St Ives Boat Trips. Fishing trips are available for those looking for a bit of adventure, or for a more relaxing experience, a visit to seal island lets you see seals basking on the rocks at certain times of year. 

Eating and Drinking

The Wharf is home to a wide selection of restaurants and cafes, serving up fresh fish and chips to gourmet burgers, with something to suit everyone. Enjoy an ice cream or Cornish pasty and watch the world go by on the harbour front, but remember to keep your wits about you; seagulls in St Ives are renowned for swooping in and stealing food right from your hands!

Smeaton's Pier

From here you'll get a stunning view of the harbour, and an up close view of the crystal clear waters. At the entrance to the pier you'll find St Leonard's Chapel; originally dedicated for local fisherman, it is now a museum and memorial for the fisherman of St Ives.

Lifeboat station

Home to the new £1.5 million lifeboat, the RNLI lifeboat station is a popular attraction for visitors to St Ives. The gift shop next door sells souvenirs where all profits go towards helping to save lives at sea.

The one who returns the ball to the Guildhall steps by midday receives a silver coin. In the afternoon the Mayor then throw pennies from the balcony of the Guildhall for children to collect.

Beautiful spacious and comfortable apartment in a stunning location. The 5 Adults had a wonderful stay mid August 2020. The view across the harbour is perfect and the central location is fantastic but can be quite noisy as explained in the details prior to booking! The bedrooms are large and the beds as comfortable and we thought the upstairs was even better than the main room if that’s even possible! The bathrooms are modern and the large landing makes the apartment feel very spacious.

We enjoyed a fantastic and relaxing week in Onshore Apartment. The location is perfect and the views across the Harbour breathtaking (being an early riser I managed to catch some stunning sunrises). We were a little apprehensive about the location above and next door to bars and restaurants, but the noise was minimal and didn’t bother us at all.

The apartment is very spacious and comfortable - hard to beat. Our third stay in St Ives in an Aspects property and the best yet.

Lovely apartment in a superb location. We had a great stay and would highly recommend Onshore Apartment. We hope to return next year.

Jul 2020

Superb location, lovely, spacious and well equipped apartment, right on the harbour front. We had a great holiday!

Jul 2019

Our third stay and the views from Onshore never disappoint, absolutely amazing. One of the best in St Ives. It is in a great location and great for dogs. Because of it’s harbour front location expect a certain level of noise at times, a price to pay for the prime location but can be disturbing. The apartment is well equipped but decor and some furniture now looking tired.

Thank you for your review, it's great to hear just how much you love staying here. The location is fantastic isn't it, being right in the heart of it all and with such great views? We are delighted to also be able to tell you that the owner is having full refurbishments of the main bathroom and en-suite and also replacing the sofa at the beginning of 2020, so we hope that you will enjoy the improvements on your next visit. Tanya, Customer Services

Fabulous views, bedrooms were lovely

Apr 2019

Onshore is a fabulous apartment. It is light and airy with the most stunning views! You can literally watch the sun rise over the sea from your bed!! Great for people watching and just enjoying the beach right in front of your eyes! Everything is right on your doorstep - cafes, restaurants, interesting shops, galleries, bars, coastal and beach walks! Wonderful holiday location in a spacious apartment. And - so grateful to the owners for letting our dog stay too! (He always comes on holiday with us and had the best time. He couldn’t believe he would come in from his walk and then watch all the other dogs playing on the beach!!!).

Great view and location.

Probably best I don’t comment about all the additional internal problems with the plumbing, sofa and stinky smell.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are really sorry for all of the inconvenience experienced during your holiday. Unfortunately a major leak occurred during your stay, which could not have been foreseen, especially with the leak originating from pipework that was hidden and inaccessible. The metal trim on the sofa that had come lose has since been repaired, and the rug that had been the source of the smell, was immediately removed and disposed of, and we are very sorry that this was not noticed on the changeover before your arrival. A member of the team has since been in touch to personally apologise and to thank you for letting us know about these issues, so that they could be fully investigated and resolved. We hope that you still had a nice time here in St Ives despite these issues, and sorry again, for this unexpected inconvenience. Tanya, Customer Services

Amazing location, we stayed as two families with toddlers and everyone loved the holiday - we would return in a heartbeat.

Very clean Great location Fantastic views

Loved our was lovely.will be back.

On arrival we once again felt the need to contact Aspects about the state of the windows. The main feature of this apartment is the location and views so therefore to arrive to dirty windows was a disappointing first impression. We greatly accept that the seagull population is a part of wonderful St Ives and to maintain a good standard is a never ending battle. However as part of the cleaning arrangements for the Saturday change over day would it not be possible for the windows to be routinely cleaned therefore guests newly arriving would then see the apartment and views at it's very best. Whatever happens thereafter I feel guests would then accept as they have had that initial wow factor. We were howevever this year very pleased with how quickly the windows were cleaned once the matter had been reported to the office. The excellent location and prime views. Dog friendly ...the absolute best and so close to the all year round dog friendly beach. To some the noise at busy times would influence their stay at Onshore but to our adult family who know St Ives very well and knew before booking the exact location were not upset at the level of noise at certain busy times and accepted it as part of our holiday experience. The positives far, far outweigh any of the negatives. A fabulous stay in wonderful St Ives and would not hesitate to book again.
