We are sorry to hear this and I can see that a member of the team has been in touch since. Just to let you know, we have since heard from the property owners, who have informed us that they are replacing some of the cupboards in the kitchen, painting areas of the property, replacing the electric fire in the lounge, and attending to several more minor bits of maintenance/wear that has occurred to the property over the very busy season. Thank you for getting in touch with us following your stay here. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a lovely stay at 2 St Eia street, it’s in fantastic location and is a beautiful house. It had everything we needed and plenty of space, will definitely be coming back!

Fantastic and quiet location, the cottage provides everything you need for a great holiday. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday wouldn't hesitate to book this cottage again.

Mr & Mrs Thorpe

Loved this house and we'd stay in it again. The stairs were safe and manageable compared to other properties we've stayed in - though with four floors (and one room per floor), you do get a lot of exercise, especially when playing that old game: 'now where did I leave my phone?'

Great house It offers a fantastic location and offers everything you need for a perfect relaxing break whilst you're holidaying in St Ives . Can't wait to come back !

Great location and very comfortable property. Bathroom needed updating, black mould on sealant. Clock not working in kitchen and placemats we’re stained. Requires a little TLC, but overall we had a very good time here.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback. We were sorry to hear this. We have asked the housekeeper to attend to the sealant, replace the clock batteries and have passed on your feedback to the property owners. We aim to offer a wide range of properties that we hope will meet the different budgets, differing requirements and individual tastes. Whilst this property is not marketed as one of our higher end/modern properties, the owners usually keep it well maintained. With your comments passed on to the owners, they can consider any suggestions for future improvements, and we will of course continue to monitor any further feedback. Thanks for taking the time to send in your comments. Tanya, Customer Services

We liked our stay at this cottage, we would use again, well equipped clean and cosy Tv was good also better than ours at home !

We had a wonderful stay. Great location and lovely cottage!

2 Eia Street was everything you need from holiday accommodation comfortable, clean, convenient to shops,harbour & beaches. We were a party of three with varying disabilities in our early to late seventies and all found the three flights of stairs manageable. We would definitely stay here again.

Really nice property. Exactly as you would expect from the pictures.

Lovely location and a property we would return to.

Fabulous property, well worth the money in a fab location

Lovely house in a great location, very convenient for beaches, shops, the coast path and art galleries too.

Another lovely holiday in St Ives... The property was exactly as described and just perfect for us....thank you!

We stayed there over Christmas and it was wonderful. Cosy and warm and we were surprised to find a Christmas tree up when we arrived and the kitchen well equipped so no problems cooking a full roast turkey dinner. On Christmas Eve the Cornish Carol singers sang outside the cottage - it really was a lovely place to spend Christmas. The stairs are numerous and quite steep - but were a good excuse for an extra spoonful of brandy butter!

Lovely central St Ives cottage within two minutes walk of beaches and ideal for families. Lots of stairs and cluttered decoration but lovely all the same and we would be happy to stay there again.

Lovely little cottage very close to Porthgwidden beach - perfect for sunny days but in easy reach of the rest of the town.

Excellent quite location idea position for all beaches and the town

It has all that you might need. The proximity to the beach (for those who want it) is excellent.

It's but a short walk to town with everything you could want. Great pubs and restaurants.

The internal stairs are a bit steep (unavoidably) but my 82 year old mother-in-law has coped well for two years here.

I recommend it to you.

We felt right at home a soon as we arrived. Lovely location.

A delightful well equipt cottage in a fabulous location.
