Beautiful rustic cottage in a lovely location. Fabulous to have a dedicated parking spaces to the rear of the property (very rare!). St Ives is a little piece of heaven on earth, even in Winter when the good weather can surprise you with its brilliance.

Dear Owners - I like your style.

Very nice property, cosy and obviously used by the owners, lots of nice touches. Perfect location and having two parking spots is a godsend. We have already reserved it for next year.

Had a lovely blustery sunny week in St Ives from 3rd-10th October staying in a lovely property with so comfy beds you really didn't want to leave in the morning. Beautiful views from the upper floor windows as the cottage was in a great location with the addition of parking which really is a must. Had some very nice meals which due to restrictions I managed to prebook the week before going. All in all a lovely relaxing enjoyable stay cation....thankyou ??

really great holiday lovely house just afew meters from the sea. excellent parking plenty of room for two cars.

Another great week spent at 5 Carncrows, never disappointed. Fabulous location, lovely well equipped cottage with the added advantage of outdoor space and adjacent parking. Great service from The Aspects team as always .............we will be back Thank you,

The Hole family

Great cottage in a fantastic location

Good location, well equipped kitchen with excellent parking facilities for two large cars. We have stayed previously in this cottage and had put reviews in their cottage book June 2008. Great to see the owners too on-board our comments and have made slight changes to the kitchen. The living room hasn't changed and is now tired looking with the same uncomfortable wicker chairs, stained curtains and dirty wooden floor. With this cottage I feel the living room is in need of a refurb.

Your comments are automatically sent on to the property owners so that they can see all guests suggestions and we will also check on these points when we next inspect the property, adding any suggestions to our report, so thank you very much for your really helpful feedback. We look forward to seeing you back in St Ives very soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Fabulous property, real home from home in an unbeatable location. We keep rebooking and it never disappoints........admirably supported by the Aspects Team.

A lovely property right in the heart of the island with lovely sea views from the master bedroom. Easy access to the town and Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches without being at all noisy in the evenings/nights.

Super storage space for bodyboards/wetsuits in the outbuilding which also has a very handy washing machine and tumble drier.

The two car parking spaces make life very easy!

Awesome location with added bonus of parking right in the heart of Downalong. Perfect for families and those wanting access to Porthwiggen beach and a stone's throw from Portminster and the harbour.

We had a good holiday in Seabreeze, Carncrow St. as the weather was kind to us, the cottage was ideally situated and we had parking space for 2 cars at the rear of the property. Unfortunately the cottage could have been cleaner, especially the sticky paintwork on the stair rails, the cobwebs in the grate and some ceilings. The back entrance passageway was cluttered and was without a proper ceiling- we could see the underlying wooden struts, which did not give a good welcoming first impression! The positives were - comfortable beds with crisp white bedding and towels, great over the bath shower and water pressure, instant hot water in kitchen and bathroom. The property could benefit from a 2nd toilet as at times it was difficult for the 7 of us!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were very sorry to read that you had been disappointed with the standards of cleanliness, and sorry that we had not had the opportunity to rectify this for you at the time of your stay. We completely appreciate that you would expect it to be 100% for your arrival but we would have loved to have helped so that you could get the most out of your time in this property. There has since been a change in housekeeper, but we will continue to monitor this property and the feedback closely. We will pass on your comment about the passageway and suggestion of a second toilet, to the property owners, for their consideration. We completely understand that first impressions of a property are important, so thank you for your helpful comments. It was really nice to hear that you enjoyed the fantastic location and still had an enjoyable week here! Tanya, Customer Services

We spent a lovely week in this beautiful cottage. There were 4 adults and 3 children and we had plenty of room to eat, sit around and to sleep here. The cottage is tastefully decorated throughout, with very good sized bedrooms...we loved the top floor bedroom in particular, the photos don't do it justice! The kitchen is well equipped, plenty of everything you need. The location is perfect, right by the beach and close to the town centre, yet a quiet spot too. We really hope we can book this cottage for our next visit.

Another lovely stay at Seabreeze. Fab cottage close to beach and shops in St Ives. Love looking out to sea from the top floor xxx

A lovely cottage well located near the beach and the harbour

We love Seabreeze. It is super cosy and well kitted out with loads of charming little details. We have spent many very happy times here with our family in St Ives and this cottage never disappoints us. Thank you!

Fabulous location for a family holiday, our kids are in their twenties and it made an ideal base for us all.

Fantastic location, full of character.

Great location and lovely cottage for families.

Beds are Soo comfy and loved the linen and power shower/water pressure. Fabby!
