Lovely house, lovely space, great convenience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

February 2019

We had a lovely week at Bellas Retreat , perfect weather helped . Who’d have thought we could surf in February! We loved the location wandering up and down the hill to Porthmeor and into St Ives was a treat . There’s plenty to do in the area , we walked for miles on the coastal path . The cinema in St Ives is handy and cheap for a night out . The house is well equipped, warm and comfortable .We would happily return .

February 2019

Wonderful, well - equipped, stylish house within a short walk of St Ives town. Perfect relaxing week away!

May 2018

The house was perfect for our family weekend in St ives. Perfect location, beautifully decorated, very clean and fully equipped.

April 2018

This property is absolutely stunning, I can not wait to book it again.

February 2018

Bella’s Retreat was a great place to stay for a winter holiday for up to 8 people, and Aspects make everything easy. Have used them lots of times for St Ives houses.

December 2017

Excellent location and well equiped for families. Spacious house and great wet room downstairs for surfers etc

October 2017

Bella's Retreat is a perfect property for a holiday in St.Ives! The house is incredible beautiful! We loved everything about it!!

Thank you so much Aspect Holidays and Bella's Retreat for a wonderful stay in St Ives! We loved the house and our two year old was also well catered for. We would definitely recommend this property for anyone looking for spacious accommodation near St Ives.

Beautiful property for a really comfortable stay,

September 2016

Bella's Retreat has been a lovely place to stay with the extended and growing family for our last few holidays and hopefully more to come.

September 2016

We loved our stay in Bella's Retreat and can't wait for our return visit next year!!

July 2016

Bella's Retreat is a lovely property, finished to a high standard, with some sea views, comfortable beds and with the added bonus of parking for 2 small cars. A reasonably quiet location but the walk to the property from the beaches involves a steep hill! We would definitely book this property again!

July 2016

We are all very impressed with the high standard of this property. The fixtures,fittings and equipment really exceeded our expectations. The bedrooms especially are delightful and bigger than the photos show on the website. There's plenty of crockery and cutlery and even dishwasher tabs are provided. The welcome pack of starter groceries is a very thoughtful touch too. The beds are so comfortable. All in all Bellas Retreat cannot be too highly praised...The owner must be commended for this beautiful house/home. Three families which include grandparents, parents and grandchildren have the potential for getting under each others feet but not here as there's plenty of room for all. The utility room is a brilliant idea with the toilet and the exit to the back yard. The pushchairs, wellies and drying clothes were out of sight too. All in all a perfect house for a wonderful holiday/family get together.

April 2016

We had a fantastic stay at Bella's Retreat this November. The property is beautifully decorated and furnished, and so well equipped with everything you could possibly need! The location is great, just a short walk into St.Ives! The welcome basket was a lovely touch, we would definitely go back for another stay!

November 2015

Bellas' Retreat is a beautiful house in a good location. It is incredibly well equipped and furnished and has a lot of space- it worked really well for our family of 6 and we would definitely book this house again.

July 2015

June 2015

We have had a fantastic holiday, bellas retreat was a gorgeous property to stay in and was exactly as the description said, everything you could need was catered for and more besides the attention to detail was exceptional. The little welcome basket was a lovely touch and I would highly recommend aspect holidays and more so bellas retreat, which was a treat, thanks again for an enjoyable holiday, this was my granddaughters first holiday and you made it so much easer for us all xx hopefully see you again soon xx

June 2015

Our party of three ladies returned to the property for a weeks break in April 2015 having had a long weekend at Bella's Retreat in October 2014.

The property represents very good value for money. It is well equipped, is light and airy and decorated in a modern style

Provided that you don't mind a relatively short walk up and down some steep hills you can park up for the week and easily access St Ives on foot. Bella's is conveniently located for the beautiful Porthmeor beach and if you enjoy walking then Porthminster beach and Carbis Bay are within easy walking distance.

We love St Ives and Bella's Retreat makes an good base for visiting this lovely seaside town.

April 2015

Really great property in a fabulous location!
