Lovely cottage in a quiet location but minutes from beaches, harbour and town. Refurbished in a light and modern style, sofa and beds very comfy and excellent shower. Suited us perfectly and will definitely stay again.

Super cottage, great location, We've stayed in many many holiday rentals in St Ives over the years and this is one of the best for sure. Fit, finish, decor, cleanliness all excellent. Would certainly recommend. (family of 4)

Great location and the property seemed nice. Very disappointed that the toilet did not work properly and that I had to deal with plumbing issues while on holiday. Apparently there had been a long term problem with the toilet but I was not informed about this before arriving. I hope that aspects have now resolved the problem.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were so sorry for this issue. It was first reported on the changeover that you arrived, but a fix carried out so that it would still work for you. It continued to take a very long time to fill up between flushes, which we completely appreciate is not ideal when you only have the one toilet there and a trades person needing to attend to assess it again during your stay. Unfortunately, the part required was only available from Germany and so it took a lot longer than we would have liked for it to get here, so going the rest of your week with a frustratingly slow toilet, we understand would have been a little inconvenient. We are pleased to report that it is all working as it should now. Sorry again for the inconvenience. Tanya, Customer Services
