Smeaton's Pier Apartment The Wharf, St Ives

£557 - £1636 per week

Perched directly above Bamaluz beach at the very end of the Wharf, this second floor apartment enjoys what must be amongst the very best unbroken views of St Ives Bay. With views also to Godrevy Lighthouse, what better place to sit and watch boats coming and going from the harbour or observe pods of dolphins during their regular visits to the bay - particularly memorable with the stunning backdrop of a Cornish sunrise. Smeaton's Pier Apartment offers guests attractive, comfortable accommodation with the added benefit of an allocated parking space.

Regrettably, due to its position on the second floor and unguarded windows, this property is not suitable for children under twelve.


communal with two flights of stairs leading to the apartment. Private hallway with doors leading to all three rooms:

Sitting/dining/kitchen area

sofa and two armchairs, TV/DVD, dining table with chairs, large bay window with views of the entire bay, electric oven and gas hob, fridge with freezer compartment, washer/dryer.

Bedroom 1

Additional information

We had a lovely time staying at Smeaton’s pier apartment. Fantastically positioned, Very close to the hub of the town however very quiet in the evenings. The apartment was spotlessly clean which is very important to us. We have never been disappointed with Aspects holidays. The high quality accommodation is the reason why we would never risk to book up with any of the holiday company.

A great location - the sea right outside your window. Excellent place for getting out & about along the coastal path & a fabulous choice of local St Ives beaches.

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.

We absolutely loved staying in Smeaton's Pier Apartment close to all amenities and beaches yet a quiet location. Loved watching the sunrise over the sea and spotting the seal in the cove below. The apartment was so clean, comfortable and homely. The only thing I didn't like was having to leave.

Jul 2020

Wow,What a view! Pictures didn't do it justice. A fantastic location and a lovely little apartment with breathtaking views. Had an amazing week with all facilities right on the doorstep. Have already booked again for next year.

Jul 2020

Great apartment in a fantastic location with the best views across the bay. The apartment has all you need for a very comfortable break. A lovely stay in our favourite place.

Excellent position and car parking. Bathrooms too small.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thanks for your feedback; we're glad you liked Smeaton's Pier Apartment. The bathrooms, whilst having everything in them that you should need, are quite small in this particular property, which we completely appreciate may not suit everyone, so we try to show this as clearly as we can within the website photos. We hope that you agree that the absolutely amazing location and stunning views, well and truly make up for the bathroom size though. Thanks again, and we hope to see you back here in St Ives soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Smeatons apartment has everything you need for a lovely holiday with fantastic views

Jan 2020

A very comfortable Apartment, very clean and well decorated. A loverly place to have a complete rest for a week.

Dec 2019

Smeaton's Pier Apartment is a lovely property just up from Smeaton's Pier.

The property was very clean and pleasantly decorated with all the appliances you would need for a self-catering holiday. The on-suite toilet/shower rooms are a little on the small side but this didn't cause us any problems.

The view from the bay window is fantastic looking out over Bamaluz beach towards Godrevy Lighthouse.

I would highly recommend this property.

Dec 2019

Smeatons apartment excellent . Love the location. Apartment very comfortable.

Nov 2019

This is such a fabulous, relaxing place to stay. The views out to sea are wonderful, and yet you're only a few moments from the town, nice places to eat, art at the Tate, unusual shops, and beautiful coastal walks. Perfect!

A really nice apartment in a perfect location. You almost don't need to leave. The sea view is idyllic and gives a real sense of being by the sea at all times even when the wind is blowing or the night has rolled in.

Great access to everything and you cant get a better location.

Aug 2019

Our best holiday rental so far, amazing rental property in a excellent location thanks to aspect holidays hopefully book again next year . * five star.

The apartment was a great place to stay, being very close to the harbour, and having a magnificent view out to sea. Light and airy accommodation in good condition.

Jul 2019

Smeaton's Pier Apartment is so cosy and the views over the sea are superb. We love it! The Aspects holiday team are so helpful and will always go the extra mile to make sure you have a brilliant holiday.

May 2019

This was our second visit to the apartment. We love the location and amazing views.

Apr 2019

The Apartments are well equipped. Beds are warm and comfortable. In a town where Car Parking is a constant problem, the allocated Parking space is just around the corner from the apartment and is very welcome. The View is wonderful and it is almost impossible not to find yourself settling back in your chair and losing an hour or two gazing out at the Sea, the Sky, The Gulls, The Surfers, The Seals and, if lucky, the Dolphins. It's a magical little place in a magical little place.

Mar 2019

The apartment is in a brilliant location with stunning views.

Jul 2018

Excellent location, clean and comfortable and priced very reasonably. We will be coming back.

It was a privilege to stay in this beautiful apartment. The views are sensational and seal watching easy sitting in the armchairs in the lounge overlooking Bamaluz Beach. Also the location in relation to the other beaches, Tate, restaurants is great.

Fabulous views from the apartment for both lounge/diner and bedroom. so lovely to be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves below and then to hear the sea to wake you in the morning. had great fun watching all the dogs playing on the beach below
