Excellent accommodation in a fantastic location made this a lovely holiday. First time in St Ives, not disappointed at all, in fact we fell in love with the place! All the restaurants and cafes were excellent with excellent service. Sneaky Peek played a massive part in us feeling totally at home, hopefully be returning very soon!

We had a lovely Easter week at Sneaky Peek. Its a cosy, homely and well appointed cottage in a great location set between the Harbour and Porthgwidden beaches. The galley kitchen has everything you need and the lounge is particularly comfortable. The cottage is decorated with a 'seaside' theme which the children will like. A 50m walk down the cobbles of Bethesda Hill will take you to the Wharf with plenty of shops, restaurants and of course the Sloop pub. I would definitely recommend this property.

Apr 2019

We said we’d be back soon and we were! Still in love with this place the only trouble is the holiday went too fast. Aspects you are just as good as this cottage your service is superb. Thank you all again for a wonderful stay in St Ives and we’ll see you again soon.

Feb 2019

We love Sneaky Peek! As soon as we stepped foot through the door we were welcomed by such a warm, calm and relaxing feel to the cottage. Best place to stay in St Ives by far. We'll be back soon!

Nov 2018

Cottage is in a great location, so close to beaches, shops, car parks. It has everything you need for a home away from home break in St Ives. Children’s bunk bed was a hit for my 6 year old daughter and she loved the TV in her room and the large wardrobe space for all her clothes. Would definitely return.

Apr 2018

A fantastically equipped cottage with everything you need. Perfect location and size for a small family.

Apr 2018

Sneaky Peak is a lovely, quirky cottage in an amazing location - just steps (literally) from the harbour! We couldn't have picked a better place to stay.

Sep 2017

Best property I've stayed in. Location is central yet tucked away and the house is so carefully thought out it was simply wonderful. I would quite happily live there permanently!

Aug 2017

Lovely cottage in a great location! Very clean and excellent use of space! Had everything you would need and the shower was great. Would definitely book again with Aspects.

Aug 2017

Beautiful cottage in stunning location. Please be aware though that the very tiny outside area is shared with next door property.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback; we were very sorry to hear about the outside area, and have since spoken to the owners of the property. They have assured us that the outside area is for Sneaky Peek alone, but the neighbours were being a bit cheeky, using it when they shouldn't. The owners were following up on this, and we will monitor this very closely. You should expect it to not be shared with anyone, so we are very sorry if that had not been the case during your time here. Thank you for letting us know. Tanya, Customer services.
