Excellent service, help and support from selecting the property that suited our needs and dates, making the reservation and the additional touches left for us when we arrived. The wedding card, fizz and welcome gifts ensured our honeymoon was extra special and the welcome was very personal to us - thank you. The cottage was also perfect in every way, a beautiful home, well stocked, decorated and had everything at hand. Perfect location for the beach, shops and town center. We will booking again for sure. Can not thank the owners of Shore Break cottage enough and the Asepcts team xx

Great location - temporary parking to unload/pack outside church just along from property. Very soft bed in master room - we found it really uncomfortable.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments; we are glad that you enjoyed Shorebreak. We are sorry to hear that you found the bed uncomfortable; it can be very difficult to find a mattress that will suit everyone, and it is disappointing to hear that it was not to your preference. For now, we will monitor comments to keep an eye on guest's preferences over the coming months. Thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services

Shorebreak is a lovely place to stay right in the heart of St Ives. Very comfortable cottage and would highly recommend. So convenient for walking around St Ives.

We holiday in St Ives every year and Shorebreak is by far out favourite property. It is so nicely decorated, it feels so homely and we felt so comfortable there straight away! The location is fantastic, so close to everything but not noisy and the beds were sooooo comfortable! Would totally recommend it!

We have been staying in St Ives for many years and found Shorebreak cottage to be the best location ever. So handy for the beach by far the best one one in St Ives too. The shop is literally a few meters away and the gallery across the road has some great art work for sale. We had a wonderful stay at this comfortable well equipped cottage. We will be looking to book again for next year hopefully.

Shorebreak is a very pleasant place to stay with some welcome outdoor space on the top of the steps looking towards the sea. It is well located being close to Porthmeor Beach and the Island.

Can’t fault Aspects team, even in the difficult COVID period we find ourselves in. Shorebreak was prepared perfectly and the location is superb for both the harbour front and all beaches. A lovely break all round

We had a fantastic honeymoon at our cottage Shorebreak! We loved the wonderful attention to detail on the beautiful furnishings. The bed was amazingly comfy and the location was superb. We liked the outside table and chairs so we could people watch. Thank you for the wine on arrival! We would definitely return.
