What our guests say...

We know how important honest reviews are when it comes to booking your holiday. To help you choose the right property for you, we publish all reviews left by guests who have stayed here in the past, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines. Please bear in mind that some facilities referred to by past guests in reviews can be removed or changed at any time.

On arrival we found the floor was extremely dirty looked as if hadn't been washed for weeks. We had to wash it before letting the baby crawl around the floor looked a totally different colour after washing it for a few times. The washing machine was dirty and smelt so did the dishwasher so we weren't able to use them. They provided one towel each person per stay and one tea towel in total so not being able to use Washing machine meant we had to buy more when we were there which were extremely expensive. The Stairs to top floor are very narrow and very steep with no hand rail, my husband fell down them hurting his foot. If all the above were put right it would be a lovely place to stay. Its in a good location for everything in st ives and has lovely views from top floor.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were so sorry if any areas of the property were not cleaned to the high standards that a guest, us and the owners would expect. The owners would have loved for their housekeeper to have been able to return to rectify any concerns for you and cleaned out the washing machine and dishwasher so that you felt comfortable using them. Whether white goods need cleaning out or are not working due to a mechanical failure, we can usually get someone there the same day to rectify anything like this so that you can fully use everything in the property as you would have expected. Thank you for highlighting the steepness of the stairs. As with many of the characterful, traditional Cornish cottages here, layouts are often quite quirky and stairs steeper and narrower than in more modern buildings. Whilst things like this do not need to be highlighted in descriptions, we try to include information on this where applicable so that you can chose the best property to suit all your party's needs and we have, as a result of the team visiting the property since your stay, added a note about the steepness of the stairs to the second floor. We would also pass on recommendations to owners about the addition of handrails if these are not available, but on our visit, we found that there is a handrail up the whole length of both flights of the stairs except for where the door opening is on the top landing, so this isn't something that they could improve on. We do hope that your husband is ok and that you still had a great time here in St Ives despite your disappointment with these areas. Tanya, Customer Services

Really enjoyed our stay in Seascape. A very clean accomodation in a perfect location. I would recommend Seascape as a great place to stay in St Ives.

Another fabulous Christmas holiday at Seascape! Love the house and location. Everything you could wish for was provided. We had another lovely stay. Thank you :)

We had a fab week at Seascape and will no doubt be back again.

Lovely property, tastefully decorated in a great location. Easy booking facilities from Aspects’s as usual. Wetsuit drying facilities would be great as nowhere to put them. Overflowing rubbish is an issue, Cornwall council needs to address this in busy holiday periods. Other than that, a lovely clean and tidy place to stay!

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were sorry to read that you found parts of St Ives not looking their best with overflowing rubbish bins. This is certainly not the norm but I'm not sure that anyone was prepared for how busy it has been here this year, and we are sure that the council will address this. Thanks for your comments and we are glad that you liked it here and enjoyed Seascape. Tanya, Customer Services

Love this place, perfect for larger families

A nice house right in the middle of the action. As described on the website, clean and tidy. A little too much furniture for the small space, especially downstairs in the living area. Parking is a real issue if you’re wanting to move the car during your stay. Both seagulls and people on the street and in neighbouring houses can be noisy at night.

This house is in a great location, 2 minutes walk from the harbour and Porthgwidden beach and it is well equipped and beautifully decorated. We were a party of 5 adults and it felt quite small for us. The lack of drying facilities (outdoor space or a dryer) was a problem and the seagulls were very noisy for most of the night - ear plugs are supplied, you should use them!

Fantastic accommodation . the location and Local people , as always , brilliant and welcoming . Aspects always on hand to help and I would recommend Aspects and Seascape to my friends and family ( even though I’d want to keep it secret ) . We defiantly becoming again and using Aspects.

Ps I’ll even forgive the Seagull who nicked My salted caramel Ice Cream

We thought that the house was particularly well equipped. It is located in the heart of St Ives and is convenient for everything. We were pleased that Aspect advised us to buy a St Ives parking permit from Cornwall County Council which allowed us to park at any of the five long term car parks in town. Our dog loved it as well and enjoyed snuggling in front of the electric fire in the evening.

Good location, well equipped, spacious bathroom, nice views from 2 bedrooms. However, this property is very cramped and not really big enough for 6 people with nowhere to store boards/wetsuits/beach paraphernalia etc. Also the stairs to upper floor are very steep.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

With 2 double bedrooms and a zip and link bedroom, Seascape provides enough to sleep 6, as well as seating for 6; however, it is within a traditional St Ives fisherman's cottage, and as with many properties in this style, they can be smaller, with quirkier layouts and steeper stairs than in more modern buildings. Some quirkier than others! So whilst this style will not suit everyone; for many, it is this character and charm that that is so appealing and that brings people back to St Ives and staying in this type of property year after year. We try to be open and honest with all photos and descriptions, and we hope that we have achieved that in this case, but we will continue to monitor for any further comments on this and we will of course make the descriptions clearer or add any necessary further information where needed, so thank you for highlighting this. If you are ever looking to return to the area, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team so that we can advise on other properties that may be better suited for all your parties needs. We hope to see you again! Tanya, Customer Services

Great location but that’s all that is good about this particular experience. No real space to put our clothing and belongings due to all wardrobes and cupboards being filled with someone else’s belongings. The cottage didn’t look or smell particularly clean and there was lots of dust on woodwork and carpets and around the beds I wouldn’t stay here again.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were sorry to hear of your disappointment and would like to reassure you that this is not the norm for this property, which you will hopefully see from all the other very positive comments. Unfortunately, after such a long time of being closed off while the country was in lockdown and owners and housekeepers not being able to visit the properties and keep them aired, we had a lot of reports of musty smells on the first bookings back as a result, despite them being aired for several days before guests arrived. We would like to reassure you that a full and thorough clean had taken place. Whilst it is very difficult for us at this stage to be able to comment on the cleanliness on your arrival, having not had the concerns reported at the time and no opportunity to assess or rectify these concerns; a deep clean had been carried out a few days before, so we suspect that any dust that may have been present was again likely down to it being empty for several months and dust settling in the few days between the clean and your arrival. We are very sorry if that had been the case and would also like to apologise for any lack of storage space; the owners have since removed extra items from the wardrobes and cupboards so that guests have more space. We hope that despite your disappointment, you still had a great time here, exploring this fantastic area and being there in the heart of it all. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a superb Christmas holiday at Seascape. This is a lovely cottage in an excellent location, beautifully decorated and clean throughout. Fabulous.

Great location, lovely views, very comfortable and relaxing holiday

Another wonderful week in St Ives with Aspects. Our property again, met all our expectations and more, the helpfulness of the holiday firm was outstanding. Thank you

Lovely house, excellent location with a fantastic view from top floor bedroom window.

Lovely property. Close to amenities. Beautiful views from top rear upstairs bedroom.

Super holiday house in a great location with a fantastic view of the harbour from the bedroom on the top floor. Also lots of lovely personal touches which make a big difference on arrival.

The cottage is beautifully situated to explore St Ives and all its lovely beaches. The cottage is comfortable and the views from the window of the middle bedroom is amazing. We couldnt stay out New Years Eve as we had our 2 dogs with us so we watched the magnificent firework display from our bedroom window. We probably had one of the best views in St Ives.

A wonderful property, so much so, we have booked for next year and can't wait!!

Thanks we have had a very good time, enjoyed this place every thing was ready okay
