25 The Digey is a real find, we have stayed in many places in St Ives over the years but this was by far the best. There are steep steps to the front door, and the stairs to the upper bedroom are narrow but the comfort, layout and sheer pleasure of being in this wonderful place as well as a car parking space outside the door more than makes up for the stairs.

We were really sorry to hear of your disappointment. One of the team has since been in contact with yourself and the property owner to discuss the points that you raised. As you will now be aware, the owner is addressing these areas immediately. A lot can happen in properties in a short space of time, especially when they have been so heavily booked this year, so thank you for bringing these points to our attention so that they could be rectified. Tanya, Customer Services

Just returned from a lovely stay at 25 The Digey, perfect location for Porthmeor beach and Fore Street shops and restaurants!Very comfortable, home from home, well equipped and plenty of space. Car parking right on the doorstep so great bonus. If you have mobility difficulties, you may find the steps to the front door an issue and steps to the double room are narrow. Other than that would definitely recommend!

Nice & spacious property but could do with some T L C. Excellent location for everything.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback, we are glad that you enjoyed 25 The Digey; it really is in a fantastic location being right in the heart of St Ives. We aim to offer a wide range of properties that we hope will meet the different budgets, differing requirements and individual tastes. Whilst this property is not marketed as one of our higher end/modern properties, it should always be well maintained, so we will certainly check on that on the next inspection. After such a long, busy season it may just be due a re-fresh to some areas, so please rest assured that your feedback, and comments from our inspection will all be passed on to the property owner. Thank you for the helpful comments and we hope to see you back soon. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a great week 25 The Digey. Light, airy, spacious cottage, literally steps away from the beach. Having our own parking was a bonus (the weather wasn’t great during our week so we were finally able to explore Cornwall without worrying about finding a parking space on return). Have to give a shout out to the lovely new wine and coffee shop, st Eia, across the way.

Fantastic position of this property adjacent to town and beach ideal for extended families if they do not have mobility issues as steep steps. Much appreciated in having 4 separate bathrooms. Aspects are always punctual about responding to any issues, which means peace of mind. Clean and free of clutter which is positive in these COVID times. A small welcome pack is appreciated too. Have been back several times and would highly recommend for a relaxing stay in St Ives!

A very comfortable well equipped property, ideally situated in the centre of town with easy access to all the facilities. Very useful having its own out front car parking Particularly enjoyed the small roof terrace with a view of the sea.

Fantastic location for extended families. 4 separate bathroom facilities are extremely invaluable and place this property as prime for beach location if you don’t wish to use the public toilets. Easy for lugging essential beach gear to and from the beach. We will be bringing a grandchild next year and this property provides peace of mind for naps if the rest of the family wish to stay on the beach which is only about 200 metres away. Does not look much from the outside but a light airy oasis inside!

Lovely property in an excellent location. Open living space and 3 bathrooms were perfect for a group holiday.

The accommodation eas very clean comfortable ideal for families as everything is on the doorstep

Plenty of space for 4 adults and a dog, great location and plenty of crockery/ utensils. This is an easy relaxing place to stay.

A lovely place to stay with a central location Plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars and ideal for exploring. love the walks on the beaches and the shopping is good too.

Spacious converted fishing loft in the heart of the Old Town Downalong district with en suites to all bedrooms. A parking place by the front steps is perfect and Porthmeor beach is a stone’s throw away. The front steps to the first floor front door are very steep and a person with mobility issues may find them a challenge. The main room has no view as the main window is a large sky light but there is a small terrace upstairs. Good for a family but there are steep stairs and a sloping entrance floor for a toddler or an elderly guest to negotiate. We were just 4 adults and the apartment was ideal.

Thank you for your comments. It really is a great spot for accessing both Porthmeor Beach and all of the great restaurants and shops in the town, so we are glad that you liked it and that the property worked out so well for your party. Whilst we mention the steps on the description already, having now had a couple of people feel that they are steeper than expected, we have added a note to our website. Thank you again for your helpful comments and we hope to see you back here soon. Tanya, Customer Services.

Would highly recommend this property. The steps up to the front door are very steep, so beware if you are elderly or infirm, but once you are inside it is an absolute haven of artistic decor, comfortable beds and is spotlessly clean.The photos on the website are very true to the reality. The property is well equipped with loads of crockery and cutlery, pots and pans etc. The location is superb: you can see the sea from the top terrace, but also you can just walk around the corner to the Porthmeor Beach. The Island (where we walked our dog) is just 5 mins walk away. Shops galore just up the Digey and beyond. You are really in the centre of everything here. Finally, having a parking space right outside the property is a real bonus.

Thank you for your comments and it is great to hear how much you like 25 The Digey and its fantastic location and facilities. A large number of properties within the heart of St Ives are traditional fishermans cottages. They are packed full of character inside and out, but can often have slightly quirkier layouts and stairs inside and out that can be steeper than in more modern buildings, so it is definitely an important consideration when booking a property like this. We always try to be as open and honest as possible, and try to give an accurate representation of properties within our photos and descriptions, so we hope that we have achieved that in this case, but we will continue to monitor feedback. We hope that it suited all members of your party, and hope that you enjoyed everything that St Ives had to offer. Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments. Tanya, Customer Services

Very happy with the service received from Aspect Holidays we have used them previously to this holiday and will use them again but disappointed with the property itself for the amount of money it has cost. The property is a lovely space and the rooms are big and spacious. The property is old and quirky with uneven floors and some low door ways which is lovely but the property is in need of decorating and updating the furniture and the bathrooms are outdated and need some TLC.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your lovely comments about our service, but we were sorry to hear that you didn't feel that the property was to the standard expected for the price paid. We always aim to be as honest and transparent as possible with our descriptions, and try to show the style of property, furnishings and decor clearly in our pictures. Final rental values are based on many factors, with location, parking, facilities, number of bedrooms/size of property and so on, all impacting upon the rental costs, but we will be carrying out a full inspection of the property soon to check that it is still in line with what guests would expect for the price and will feedback to the owner, any areas that will benefit from attention, using guests comments to illustrate areas that guests feel would most benefit improvement. Thanks again for your feedback and we hope that we will see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a wonderful holiday and 25 The Digey is in an amazing location for Porthmeor beach and the facilities in the centre of town but was quiet in the evenings (we have two young children and they weren't disturbed). The property could do with some TLC particularly in the bathrooms but this was minor and we would definitely stay there again.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are glad that you and your family had such a great week and that 25 The Digey worked out so well for all of you. Thank you for your thoughts on the bathrooms; which have been passed on to the owner for their consideration. We will also look at this on our end of season inspection and discuss any recommendations for the owner. Thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services

Perfect location, just minutes to the beach! The apartment was much more spacious than we expected, with the bonus of a parking space right out front. The little roof terrace, whilst quite small, was a real sun trap and we enjoyed sitting up there even in February! We have looked to book 25 The Digey again but no surprise - its very popular and pretty much booked up!

25 the Digey on first impression from the outside, isn't very outstanding and you dont believe it is the same as the description, but once through the blue door it is like a tardis and lives up to expectations.

An excellent property in an ideal location for porthmeor.

Fantastic property! Excellent location, lots of light and space. Would definately stay again.

Great location and great place to stay with family

Really pleasantly surprised at how large it was inside. Perfect location ,loved how personnel it was and felt really homely.

Do not book it until you are sure it been brought up to a better standard.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are really sorry if things were not up to the standard that you have come to expect from booking through Aspects. As a result of your feedback, the property team inspected the property and had a chat with the property owner, who has confirmed that she will have work carried out at the property to address everything reported. Thank you once again for bringing this to our attention. We hope that you still had a great time here in St Ives and we look forward to seeing you back here in St Ives soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Another lovely holiday! Nice quiet neighbours would be nice next time please x

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It was great to hear that you had such a lovely time here, though we were sorry to hear that you had some noisy neighbours the week that you visited. We would hope that this was just a one off, as it isn't something that we have had reported here before, but we will monitor this closely and hopefully this hasn't put you off staying somewhere that you had clearly enjoyed so much. Tanya, Customer Services

A stone's throw from Porthmeor beach, the blue front door opens into a well appointed Tardis of an apartment!

This cottage is very spacious and well equipped. Sleeping accommodation was ideal for us. I would recommend this property.

25 The Digey was ideally located with everything we needed for our holiday home. It was an ideal layout for our group and we all loved our stay there. Would absolutely recommend this place and we will most certainly consider staying there again

Superb, Fantastic and Beautiful!! A truely amazing holiday!! X

We had a fantastic holiday and would definitely book this property again. However the steep steps are not suitable for the elderly or children.
