Lovely house and great location.

Booked this property because it was pet and smoke free. The property was really clean unlike some of the properties I've stayed in St Ives and the views from the patio window were an added bonus. Located on a quite street with no noise with great double glazing. Ten minute walk into town but the steep hill might put people off if you have difficulty walking. Stayed in the heart of St Ives many times and it can get a bit much so this is a great escape only ten minutes away. We'll be rebooking.

Absolutely fell in love with this place the minute I walked in. I felt so relaxed here. Spacious, clean, comfy with everything you need. The sea views are a massive bonus! Just be ready for the walk to and from St Ives centre, the hill is a steep hill. Take your time.

The dolphins was a lovely home away from home, with amazing sea views and only around a 10 minute walk away from most main amenities and attractions. The house was lovely and clean on arrival.

It was so spacious and well equipped. We immediately felt at home and pampered by our surroundings and our lovely view. I didn't want to leave.

We are a family with two young children and this place was absolutely perfect for us. The views from downstairs and upstairs were incredible. Waking up early with kids is the norm but when you look out of the window and see the sun rise it’s nothing short of magical. The place was very spacious and having a front and back garden meant we were able to catch the sun in the morning and afternoon. Definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Gorgeous and cosy cottage with fabulous sea views and in a great location. We stayed for a week and had a wonderful time. Kitchen very well equipped as well. Highly recommend!

The view from the open plan living and kitchen area was excellent. The property had a nice bright feel and was equipped with everything you could possibly need. The property was ideally situated on the quiet edge of town with a pleasant 10 minute walk into the centre. It's not ideal for anyone with mobility issues, however if this is not an issue, I would highly recommend.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad to hear that you liked Dolphins- 3 Carthew Court; you certainly get a lovely view from there! Sitting above the town, away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to walk in; it does involve an uphill walk back to the property after a day at one of the stunning beaches of St Ives. As you rightly say, with the property being over 2 floors and that walk up from the town, the property may not work for everyone, but we are glad that you agreed that it was worth it.

We enjoyed a relaxing week in this clean, well furnished and equipped property. Can recommend. If we had been earlier in the year the outside spaces would have been ideal.

Lovely clean place with excellent sea views. The walk into town can be steep in places but we managed fine with two very young children.

Great property and shown on the images, great workout walking to the property as St Ives is quite hilly. Thank you for a great base for an amazing holiday.

Dolphins is a fabulous property with amazing views of the sea and beach. It is perfectly equipped we had a very enjoyable stay and hope to go back again.!
