September 2021

We loved our stay at Octopus House in St Ives. Everything about it was perfect - the location, the comfort, cleanliness, high spec of finish all led to a great stay and the service from Aspect holidays was great too - very smooth and easy, from booking through to after service. Thankyou for our lovely holiday.

Beautiful holiday home with modern interior and appliances. Well located next to 2 stunning beaches and very close to the town centre. Would recommend to friends and family.

Excellent property & location Can’t wait to stay there again Fantastic week . Thank you Aspects

Octopus House exceeded all our expectations! A cute little 2 bed right in between two of St Ives best beaches.

The property has an open plan set up on the ground floor with a modern bathroom plus two bedrooms. Down stairs is decorated and spected to a lovely standard with BOSH appliances in the kitchen and a Siemens washing machine.

The master bedroom has sea views, the bathroom and second bedroom are to the rear over looking the courtyard.

All in all an excellent place to stay in the world's best place.
