The property was in a great location and Aspects were very flexible to accommodate our Easter weekend and holiday booking. Property was exactly like the pictures and well finished including v comfy beds and sofas! Perfect for our family of 4. The parking permit was a great addition especially during a peak period as Easter!

The property could do with a lick of paint in certain areas and some basic cooking ingredients such as salt and pepper would be handy! Otherwise spot on and highly recommend.

Thank you for your comments; it's wonderful to hear you had such a lovely Easter break at Sea Breeze and found everything as it should be. The owners regularly visit to work on the property, so we have passed your comments along to them. We will also check everything thoroughly during our next inspection. We hope we will be able to welcome you back for another stay soon. Phoebe, Customer Services

Lovely cosy week in Sea Breeze in January. As always Aspects were excellent good service. Will be back.

We had such a lovely break at Sea Breeze. Such a cosy cottage, very clean and very well equipped. Three minutes to the sea which is perfect for sea lovers. The location is spot on, close to the shops, pubs, restaurants and the beaches. Having a guaranteed parking space in St Ives is a bonus, and it is a minutes drive away from the cottage. Beware if you are tall, my other half banged his head on the door frames many times, you would have thought he would have learnt after the third time! :) We are already talking about booking this wonderful cottage for a break next year, and we can't wait.

Its lovely to hear you enjoyed your break at Sea Breeze. Parking is a bit of a premium in St Ives, so having an allocated space is definitely an advantage. Many of the traditional fisherman's cottages in the heart of St Ives are often a little smaller with quirky layouts; steeper stairs and lower ceiling heights are not uncommon, so taller guests may need to mind their heads ;-) We are glad to hear this didn't put you off thoughts of returning to this property though. Hopefully we will see you back soon. Lucy, Customer Services

Great location and having a parking space is a great bonus.

Sea breeze is a really super little cottage. Clean and comfortable. The directions to the property are very clear so keep heart when you are driving through a busy town and narrow roads. Be aware there is no garden or courtyard however you are in minutes walk to town and beaches which is fabulous. Enjoy your holiday.

Excellent location. The cottage has everything you need and is also very clean. Parking space is also a great asset!

Our stay at Sea Breeze was a delight. The cottage is smart and clean and well equipped. It has very convenient parking. St Ives beaches and amenities are all close by.

Good Location and well presented property.Easy access to the beaches in St Ives.

Great cottage, stayed here five times already and already booked ahead this year

Another lovely stay at Sea Breeze - our second year. Clean, bright and airy cottage. Crisp, modern decor. Welcoming milk, tea, coffee and sugar waiting. Plenty of crockery and cutlery. Very comfortable beds. Easy walking to beaches, shops and closeby parking space. A definite bonus! 2nd year here, loved every minute, and have rebooked for next year.

Excellent, Sea breeze is like a home from home. Brilliant location for centre of St Ives and lovely clean and welcoming cottage. Service excellent too. Will definitely be booking again. Great job ??

Sea breeze is a marvellous cottage in St Ives. We had a really comfortable few days, the cottage is well situated a short stroll from town and close to Porthgwidden beach The parking space in the nearby car park is a real added bonus. Norway stores close by is well stocked and the staff are very friendly and welcoming We will definitely stay here again

We had a lovely stay at Sea Breeze. The location of the cottage was perfect, close to the beaches and town . The Cottage was comfortable and cosy and we loved that from the main bedroom you can just across to Godrevy and the sea.

Our 3rd stay at Sea Breezes Great position for the town harbour and beaches and the car parking space is an absolute bonus in St Ives. Always immaculately clean and a credit to the housekeeper. Only disappointment was we booked for Christmas and found there was no Christmas tree

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Welcome back to Sea Breeze! As you said, the property is in a great position for everything St Ives has to offer - whether it's a day exploring the beaches, or popping into the many shops, cafes and restaurants in the area. We are sorry to hear of your disappointment that the property was not decorated for Christmas. This is not something that is offered as standard for each property, so we always recommend getting in touch with us just to check if you can't see this mentioned in the property description. Katy, Customer Services.

I have stayed at Sea Breeze a few times - its my favourite place to stay in St Ives. The quality and cleanliness is always consistently spot on. The owners did an excellent job of furnishing it, the cleaners do an excellent job of keeping it spotless & Aspects do an excellent job of managing all of it.

Had a wonderful stay in December. The cottage was just as described and equipped with everything you could possibly need. Included parking was a bonus.

The log burner provided a few cozy nights in after walking.

Would definitely recommend

Perfect get away cottage for a cosy autumn break.

A wonderful place to stay everything you need and the bed was super comfortable. Beautiful and clean property. The reserved parking space was an added bonus in a nearby car park. We will definitely visit again.

Lovely house, very clean, central location with the added bonus of a parking space, a great holiday.

Sea Breeze is a lovely cottage in a great location for accessing St Ives beaches and the town. Norway Stores is close by for shopping and if you're into art the galleries along Back Road West are an easy walk. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped. It is accessed by a flight of stone stairs and as I am 70 I did find I needed to pay attention so it may not suit anyone with mobility issues. I would be happy to stay here again.

We’ve stayed here once before and you can’t beat it for location, & ease with the parking space included. The place is very clean and well looked after We would definitely stay again. Thanks again for providing a great base for our holiday

Sea Breeze was the perfect accommodation to stay in for the week of our wedding at Porthgwidden Cafe!

It was in the perfect location and was spacious, bright and airy. It was well equipped for all our needs and the bed was very comfortable.

There was so much storage space which is what i particularly looked for when booking this property as to try and stay super organised for our wedding!

We cannot thank the owners enough for allowing us to check in on the Thursday! We will 100% be back to stay in Sea Breeze and will forever hold a very special place in my heart.

Excellent location, very cosy and a bonus having a parking place.

Bright, airy, and comfortable little cottage, in a quiet part of old St Ives. Beautifully kept with quality furnishings. Beds really comfy. Easy to walk to all beaches and shops. Reserved parking space at Porthgwidden a big bonus. Made our holiday even more enjoyable.

Sea breeze cottage is in a great location in St Ives Café’s Pubs and fantastic restaurant’s all well within walking distance and it’s got a parking space which is definitely an added bonus

Fantastic stay at Sea breeze for our wedding anniversary, very well equipped and a perfect location.

Excellent location with a reserved car park space that in St Ives is a huge positive. Well equipped and comfortable accommodation with quality furnishings.

Sea Breeze is a really lovely property right in the centre of St Ives. You can walk to all the best spots, and beaches within minutes. The wood burning stove is wonderful (although make sure you bring firelighters and wood as we were only supplied with 4 logs for a week long stay and no firelighters). The bed is really comfy, although I am not convinced it is king size. Well decorated and all the utensils etc you need to enjoy your stay, as well as some really lovely welcome treats provided! Would definitely recommend this place to others!

Excellent location with easy access to the town and beaches especially Porthgwidden Beach. The provision of a parking permit was a big bonus enabling us to use the car without worrying about parking on return.

Cottage and service did not disappoint from website. We had a lovely week exploring surrounding area.

I have used Aspects a few times now & the service has always been second to none.

The property was immaculately clean & tidy as usual.

One small note - its a shame Covid has meant that things like cushions & throws were removed - for my next trip i'm bringing my own as my back needs them!

During my stay there was a problem with the electric shower, not Aspects or the property owners fault - just wear & tear & general maintenance that was required. Aspects sorted it out quickly & efficiently, with great communication & without any inconvenience to our holiday. Thanks to Sarah at Aspects for her efficiency & great communication with this.

A great cottage & a fantastic trip to St Ives - I hope to be back soon.

The property is in a fantastic location and is a beautiful little cottage - literally a couple of minutes walk to the harbour front but so quiet. Spotlessly clean with nice features, a good kitchen, comfortable lounge and very comfortable bed.

A real added bonus having a reserved parking space nearby

I have stayed in properties from Aspects a few times now & they never fail to deliver. Always an efficient and friendly service & the properties are always spotless in my experience. i have already booked my next holiday with Aspects.

Stayed 3 nights at sea Breeze. Lovely cottage surprisingly spacious, parking very close by. It’s in the best area, very quiet and traditional. Did not experience any issues. Would definitely stay in this cottage again.

Perfect cottage and perfect location and with parking! Every home comfort had been thought of and can highly recommend. The staff at Aspect holidays were extremely helpful too.

Really beautiful property in an excellent location. We loved having the wood burning stove which we used a lot during our stay, there was nothing better than cosying up with a bottle of wine with a roaring fire to keep you warm when its blustery outside. It has all the amenities you could want and a lovely kitchen/dining area. The bedrooms were also very cosy and comfortable. Aspects were a pleasure to book through, everything was made so easy and there was some lovely touches along the way. St. Ives has our hearts, there is so much to do and see here and the views can't help but take your breath away every time. Our favourite restaurant this year was The Mermaid, which is just a stone throw away from this property, the food was delicious and it's a very romantic and special setting. Pub wise it has to be The Sloop, with a selection of Cornish beer, cider and gin with live music most nights what more could you want! We've already put our deposit down for next year and we cannot wait to return!

Lovely cottage with a real homely feel. You can’t get a much better location in St Ives - we’d definitely stay again

Location isn't beatable. Parking ideal and very close by. Lovely cottage. Second year in a row we've stayed in this property. Feel very at home within this property and we hate to leave.

Lovely cottage, perfectly located with parking. Quality fixtures and fittings. Great experience from all staff in the office . Lovely to have log burner would be useful to provide matches and news paper too Comfy beds and great power shower .

We had a lovely weeks stay at Sea Breeze and wouldn’t hesitate to book again.

Lovely comfortable accommodation, felt very much at home here . Great location for ease of getting to all areas of St Ive’s. Would definitely book again.

Lovely cottage. Will definitely book there again. Perfect location for the beaches.

Had a fantastic stay, with harbour, beaches, pubs and restaurants all closer than you think. Looking forward to returning soon.

We wanted a property near Porthgwidden beach and this was absolutely perfect. Great location, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Couldn't ask for more, wouldn't hesitate to re-book.

Beautiful cottage , in a great location , home from home experience !

The property surpassed our expectations. Beautiful cottage, kitted out with everything you need and more! It was bigger than the pictures show too - will be back!

We loved it - the situation and location is just perfect!

This apartment is presented to a very high quality, tastefully decorated with absolutely everything you could possibly think of to cater to your every whim. 5 star accommodation in self catering! Very close to town and with an allotted parking space close by, which given the narrow streets and difficulty getting around by car at St Ives, is a real God send! I will definitely stay again. Service provided by Aspects Holidays is also amazing and are on hand to help with anything you may need. We were delighted and one of the best self catering experiences we have ever had.

We really enjoyed our holiday at sea breeze. It's a really cosy, comfortable property and spotlessly clean. It's in a great location close to Porthgwidden and Porthmeor beaches. The property has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. We look forward to our next visit
