My first stay in St Ives during January. Was very lucky with weather. Enjoyed seeing the dolphins in the bay. Fantastic location close to the island. Some refurbishment going on in nearby properties, as to be expected this time of year but was forewarned and it didn’t bother me. Little Breeze is beautifully and thoughtfully kitted out with lots of nice touches that made it feel like home from home.

January 2022

A brilliantly located cottage in the heart of St. Ives. Convenient for everything. Tastefully decorated and fitted out with all that is required for a relaxing holiday. Ideal for cosy nights in after a days walking round the sights. Our second time in Little Breeze and it won’t be our last.

Really enjoyed my short stay at Little Breeze - perfect location, handy for my favourite parts of St Ives, cosy and clean and lots of thoughtful touches.

Stayed at Little Breeze again this year. The new changes to the property were lovely. Great little place and excellent location, close to beaches, shops and restaurants. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Just back from a lovely two week stay at little breeze. Little breeze has everything you need and was perfect for myself and husband. It’s in a great location and very handy for parking on the island car park. I would definitely recommend Little breeze to anyone.

Fantastic little property in an absolutely stunning location! Incredibly well equipped and a lot bigger than the photos show. I couldn’t recommend this place enough!

Little Breeze is in the perfect location and is like a hidden cave less than 1 minute walk from the beach. Perfect for a couple with a little doggy. We will most certainly book again.

What a great little find - most websites will claim “2 mins walk from the beach” trust me this is exactly 2 mins walk from Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches - a nice 3-5 min stroll down to harbour, Norway stores a 2 min walk away which sold pretty much all you needed - was so cosy and very well equipped, we thought might be a bit of traffic noise but was absolutely fine, could not be a better location - Aspects were very informative with arrival details - loved it so much have already rebooked

Little Breeze is a small but perfectly formed studio cottage. Idea for that much needed get away in a delightful place. Fully equipped and very comfortable with modern decor, making for a superb break. We would certainly book again with Aspects for their service and good value for money holidays.

We loved Little Breeze. Perfect location for a doggy break as 2 minutes from the Island. So clean and beautiful fixtures and fittings. You will love the settee ! There's a DVD with selection but if you wanted to bring a couple for a cold night .TIP - restaurants capacity much smaller so we booked everything we could couple of weeks before. Balancing Eel still best fish and chips , 5 minutes away and they are very organised for take out, you dont ned to book those.

Beautiful little home by the sea, we had a great time and if you enjoy spending time on fabulous beaches then this place is definitely recommended.

Perfect cottage in the best location! The cottage was very clean and tidy and had everything we needed for the week!

Little Breeze is one of our favourite places to stay with Aspects. Has everything you need for a couples getaway with the dogs. Couldn’t recommend more!

Perfect base and bolt hole for two right in between two fabulous beaches and a short skip to the harbour front and main town. Was completely idyllic.

We had a great stay at Little Breeze. The location was great and we found it full of everything you could ever need. There were lots of books and dvds to watch if you had a day when you stayed in. We were a little unlucky with the weather but managed to have a great time anyway. The staff of Aspects Holidays were very helpful and made our stay much more enjoyable. Thanks to all for our lovely holiday.

Location of the cottage was PERFECT. It did feel a little grubby but i don't think it helped it was so warm and unless you are in to open the window and top hatch of the door there isn't much of a breeze at all. We did however have a lovely week here. We wouldn't go back to this cottage but we will definitely book with Aspects again

We are sorry if you found any areas to be a little grubby. We will get in touch to discuss this further so that we can get any concerns addressed. Thank you for your feedback and we are glad that you liked it here. Hopefully see you again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

We had the best holiday we have had in a long time! Aspects Holidays were very efficient, and the accommodation (Little Breeze) was perfect for two people, location fantastic and it catered to all our needs. We will be re-booking!

Good location and nice large shower, but the basin in the bathroom is too small and poorly designed, and storage for clothing is very poor with standing clothes rail that falls over at times.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your helpful comments. This cosy studio apartment is small but all as pictured on the website. Whilst the owner has tried to make the most of all available space to offer you everything that you should need for a stay here, it is always useful to get the feedback of guests, to find out what changes will benefit you most. So thank you for your suggestions; we will pass those on to the owners for their consideration. We hope that you had a great time. Tanya, Customer Services

Great little cottage. Exellent location and very cosy. Shower excellent. Stayed for a week and loved it.

Little breeze, we stayed here for a short break in may, very cosy little place on island rd, 1 minute walk from the nicest beach in st ives. 3 mins from the harbour. The cottage itself is only a dear little house enough space for a dog a new born and two adults We really liked our stay here as it ticked the right amount of boxes for us, location was good, felt cosy, dog friendly and had mostly everything you would expect upon arrival. We would stay here again.

This cottage is in excellent proximity to the beaches and the shops. Everything in the cottage is perfectly proportioned and well thought out.

We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend Little Breeze to future guests.

Wonderful location with Porthmeor and Porthgwidden in the doorstep. The cottage has everything you will need and is so close to the town centre you can be on the harbour within a few minutes walk.

We had a fabulous stay at Little Breeze, and the gorgeous sunshine all week made it even better! It was a special trip for us as we viewed our first Wedding Venue, and we will definitely be recommending this cottage to our guests. Everything was in the cottage that was needed for the week, it was only small but perfect for the two of us and our dog Charlie :). We knew the location of the cottage anyway as this wasn't our first trip to St Ives, and the location was perfect - just a few minutes walk to all the shops and restaurants! I definitely recommend the parking permit (at an additional cost) that comes with the cottage, the space was just around the corner, as parking in St Ives can be a nightmare sometimes!

Loved the cottage. So cosy. Really cleverly equipped. Easy for me and my grandson (12) to have separate sleeping areas Excellent location - great for the high street, beaches and the wonderful Norway Stores.

Brilliant little place for a couple with well thought out layout which makes maximum use of the space .

Lovely compact little place, well thought out, would defo stay again only tiny gripe is the doors in the kitchenette made it difficult to cook or get Round easily, it looks nice with the doors but for ease of use would be much better without.

Thank you for your feedback. When you are staying in a property, you get to view and experience it in a different way than we do when we visit them for short periods, so we really value all constructive comments and suggestions from guests. Such feedback is really useful for us to consider when next inspecting, and owners to consider when they are looking at what improvements they may want to make to the property. Thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services

Beautiful space , in a great position for beaches , car park and general store ..

The cottage was stunning! We were provided with nessectities as well as some treats (digestive nibbles)! The place was clean and well equipped with lovely decorations! I am so happy that we chose to stay here and would recommmed to anybody!

Little Breeze location could not have been better for us and Ted our dog. The beaches, open area and harbor are a stone throws away making our stay such a relaxing time.

Best cottage so far. Cosy and warm in the evening with a great choice of beaches on the doorstep. It ticked all of my boxes.

Little Breeze was a beautiful, well designed cottage in an amazing location.
