September 2018

A beautiful holiday retreat! Lovely sea views and peaceful surroundings! Ideal location for beach, town and exploring the area! Would love to return! The coffee machine is amazing too!!

August 2018

Driftwood is a lovely property in a pretty, quiet location with spectacular views. Everything was there to make our stay really enjoyable. No expense has been spared with with the decor or fittings and the beds are most comfortable. Everything in the apartment has been well thought out to the smallest detail. We even had garage which is a great plus for a St Ives property!!

June 2018

Super layout, superb fitting and beautiful holiday home.

May 2018

Lovely apartment in a quiet location but just a lovely 10 minute walk from the heart of St Ives. The kitchen is so well equipped and the whole apartment beautifully furnished and comfortable. A great place, whatever the weather, I happily gazed out to sea through the living room windows as the snow came down in March!

March 2018

Yet again, another lovely stay at Driftwood! Clean, modern, tidy, quiet and extremely well equipped apartment. Mum and I were saying we could easily stay and live there very comfortably! :-)

I shall be returning for a visit next year!

October 2017

Driftwood is a lovely property with all high quality equipment, all amazingly comfortable furnishings, located with a fabulous view of Clodgy, the Island and Porthmeor, and is somewhere we found extremely difficult to leave.

August 2017

A comfortable, well equipped house with a high standard of fixtures and fittings in an ideal location just ten minutes walk to the centre of town and even closer to Porthmeor beach. The perfect rental: everything works and everything is clean.

October 2016

A lovely modern clean holiday let and ideal location for getting in and out of St Ives. Perfect!

September 2016

Amazing property which made our holiday - thank you aspects!

July 2016

Great location for Porthmeor Beach. Modern, clean and stylish. Would definitely stay there again!

July 2016

This was a lovely place which was decorated and furnished to a high spec. We loved that there was a highchair and cot available to use. There was ample supply of kitchen utensils, crockery and appliances..to the degree that we were spoilt for choice. The beds were comfy and the pillows smelt of lavender which was a lovely touch. The property was about a 5 to 10 minute walk to the beach and to the heart of St Ives. It is located at the top of a hill so some people could find this a bit of a challenge but we managed with a pushchair and found it to be a good source of exercise. We also loved the fact that there was a separate garage which did accommodate our estate with no issues. Would highly recommend this property and would happily stay here again.

May 2016

A thoroughly lovely property and a fantastic base for a holiday. We loved being able to walk to the beach and St Ives centre! We enjoyed all the homely touches such as the feature fire and candle lanterns which made it very cozy even on the most wintery, wet and windy days! We hope to return in the summer.

December 2015

Beautiful decor, and the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in! Great views of the sea from the living room and main bedroom. We were able to sit ton the balcony and enjoy the view, even in October.

October 2015

Very well equipped property with top quality fittings and furnishings. Ideal for a family or a share as there are two separate bathrooms.

September 2015

An excellent apartment, well located, spacious and comfy, well furnished. Would definitely book again!

August 2015

Beautifully decorated and clean. Coffee machine was wonderful, once I'd cleaned it all out.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback and we are glad that you liked Driftwood. It has certainly got some lovely views from there and very tastefully decorated. We are really sorry to hear that you had to clean out the coffee machine before you could use it, the housekeeper must have missed this. We would obviously hope for everything to be 100% for your arrival and are glad to hear that everything else was cleaned to a very high standard. Tanya, Customer Services.

Driftwood is a lovely, comfortable property which has been tastefully decorated and kitted out. We would be very happy to stay here again.

May 2015
