Lovely cosy apartment in a wonderful location with excellent views of and easy access to Porthmeor beach. Comes with a parking space which is a little tight and could be a issue if you intend using your car regularly. Perfect for sitting on the balcony with a glass if wine watching the world go by. Would definitely book again

Fabulous place to stay. Great views of the bay and the Island. Lots of beaches to choose from. Comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. Short walk into town. All you could need for a great holiday. We have been many times.

Lovely comfortable flat, great views, two usable outdoor areas, parking space. Great location.

Great apartment in the centre of St Ives. The views are sensational, so peaceful being so close to the beach and hear the sea. Sadly for us, the bed was too hard and uncomfortable which would prevent us returning to this particular property. We would return to St Ives in a heart beat and would definitely use Aspect Holidays.

We are so pleased to hear that you had a great stay at 31 St Nicholas Court, it sounds like you really did make the most of having the lovely Porthmeor beach right on your doorstep. It's such a shame that you didn't find the mattress to be comfy in the property; 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. We will monitor comments to keep an eye on guest's preferences over the coming months. We look forward to welcoming you back to St Ives. Katy, Customer Services.

Amazing views and locations, 2 minutes to the beach and 5 minutes to the harbour. Parking is tight but managed fine in an estate car. Lovely bathroom with a nice bath. Scones and milk for when we arrived were a nice touch. Have stayed in st ives for the last 8 years and this is the best location by far.

Just the type of holiday I needed after being diagnosed with Bells Palsy, I needed all the rest and recuperation I could get, I went home at least 50% better than when I arrived. Loved every minute of it. Thank you.

A beautifully furnished apartment with spectacular views over Porthmeor beach and the Island. A great central location equipped with everything you could need. Comfortable beds which helps! Aspects staff and owner very helpful. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Lovely well equipped flat with beautiful views and parking (for a confident driver and small car).

Excellent views and location Would recommend Aspects Holidays. Very friendly and helpful.

A very comfortable & well equipped apartment with amazing views. We thoroughly enjoyed our week helped by great weather.

This is our 5 the year running in this property. We love it. Fabulous views. Close to the beach. Convenient for town. Quiet building. Clean and well appointed apartment.

Brilliant location, really roomy, everything you need for a perfect holiday and the bonus of onsite parking. We would definitely book this apartment again.

A fantastic apartment but don't tell to many people !

Great place Lovely views

Lovely flat, with perfect views. Bright and airy living/dining room. Our only problem that the flat has a small fridge and a small freezer compartment. But didn’t spoil things, personal preference.

After travelling from Somerset, we arrived at our property late evening (21:30) to find it was dirty and had not been cleaned by the housekeeper. We managed to contact the out-of-hours phone line, where we spoke to Sarah who handled the matter. Sarah offered to bring clean bedding for us, of which we declined as we requested for the apartment to be fully cleaned before sleeping there.

We managed to find a very last-minute hotel which had a room available for the night. The following morning we had a call from Ben, sincerely apologising and ensuring us that the matter would be dealt with promptly. A few hours later and we were told the apartment had been cleaned and sanitised properly, and that the truth behind the matter was simply because the housekeeper had missed the property off the list.

We were greeted with Prosecco and a box of afternoon tea, and the apartment once cleaned was fantastic. Ben escalated the matter during our stay and agreed to reimburse us for our night in the hotel, ensuring we are not out of pocket. We ended up having an excellent trip and, whilst it got off to a bad start, believe Sarah, Ben and Ashleigh handled the matter incredibly well, particularly for checking up on whether we had settled in well after the problems had been resolved. This experience will not prevent us from returning, and we would still recommend Aspects.

We were so sorry that the housekeeper had missed this clean. This really is very unusual and understandably very disappointing for you to arrive to. We are very happy to hear that you had enjoyed your time there once you had been able to settle in. Hopefully we will see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

A lovely apartment in a great location with views across Porthmeor beach, the Island and out to sea. We are regular visitors to St Ives and would recommend this apartment as one of the best properties we’ve stayed at; ideal for a couple or small family that are fine navigating some stairs.
Parking is tight but a real bonus. A clean, tidy, well furnished and equipped apartment in a great location for all that St Ives has to offer.

Just returned home after spending a week in this fabulous apartment with amazing vies in an excellent location in St Ives. Parking was a bonus too. Would definitely stay here again ... couldn't fault anything about it.

Very comfortable and nicely furnished apartment. Fantastic view over the beach and the island. Secure parking on site. Quiet apartment block. We are returning for a fifth year next year. I would highly recommend this place to stay.

If you're looking for a reputable holiday company you will find Aspects service second to none. St Nicholas Court in St Ives is a fantastic place to stay and with its location right next to the beautiful beach, you're in a very accessible, stunning and enviable location.

We've been staying there for over 30 years and we keep going back, its the kind of place you feel at home in straight away. Thoroughly recommended.

Enjoyed our stay at 31 st Nicholas court. Great views and perfect location. A little unhappy with the late check in to give time for the ‘extra cleaning’ that clearly hadn’t been done before we arrived.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are sorry to hear this and it is such a shame that we had not heard from you while you were here. We would always expect that guests arrive to their chosen property to find that it has been cleaned to a very high standard, but if that was not the case, we would do everything possible to put that right for you. We can only apologise if any areas had been missed and having now received this feedback, we will follow up on this with the cleaner, so thank you for your comments. Tanya, Customer Services

Excellent location, beautiful coastal views from the balcony and lounge. Perfect place to explore beautiful St Ives and all it has to offer.

Nice flat with great veiw getting a bit pricey though for one week .

If you want a view, this flat is the one to go for. Perfectly located on the island and the most amazing view and sounds of the sea. We utterly loved our stay here. The additional bedroom balcony is a lovely plus, a right sun trap even when we stayed in October. Definitely very keen to return

Lovely apartment in a fantastic location. Great for a family of 4

Beautiful apartment great view of the porthmeor surf beach .Bonus of having a car parking space and two balconies one of which is a great sunbathing spot as it's a sun trap. Definitely recommended.

This holiday was fantastic. The location is brilliant. The view is wonderful. We just stare at it in wonder. The apartment is great. Well appointed and lovely comfy beds. We loved it last year so came back this year and we are hooked. Booking again for next year. Aspects provide excellent service. Thank you everyone for making this holiday so wonderful. Jean and Kate.

Fantastic company always happy to help with a problem. Sue in the st nicholas court office is always friendly and willing to help .The company will have a great loss when you retire.

We had an absolutely blissful stay at 31 St. Nicolas Court. The apartment is decorated & equipped to a very high standard and the view is absolutely to die for.

We will definitely look to stay at this property again.

Lovely apartment with amazing views, especially watching the sunset over Porthmeor Beach. Comfortable beds, both bedrooms had plenty of space. Well equipped kitchen had everything we needed. Fantastic location, we are looking forward to a return visit.

Beautiful apartment with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay Lovely to sit out on either patio and relax after a morning walking the coast path or just wandering around St Ives soaking up the atmosphere Lots of hot water whenever we needed it and a lovely comfy bed Looking forward to a return visit

This apartment has it all going on great location with stunning views of Porrtmeor Beach and The Island as they are right outside the balcony. Well equipped and furnished with tasteful décor, covered car park and an Aspects office onsite, hard to beat if you want to see and hear the sound of the waves breaking on the beach

Excellent apartment great views. And great location.

Fabulous place. We are coming to stay there again.

The property is finished to an exceptional standard. The kitchen is beautiful. The balcony views are out of this world. Watching the sunset was a luxury in itself. We absolutely loved this place and wish it wasn’t already booked for next year.

Beautiful property has lots to offer beautiful decor. Very good value. Can't wait to come back in October.

Thank You I was going to email you tonight saying how well we enjoyed our stay Everything was just what we expected We thoroughly enjoyed it The location was excellent overlooking the beach and close to all that St Ives offers Once again thanks very much

Beautiful apartment in an excellent location. Perfect for kids as you can be from beach to home in less than 30 seconds - ideal for changes, toilet visits etc. Great parking and extremely close to town. Immaculately clean and everything you need for your stay....Would stay in this property again and again.

Fabulous location overlooking beach and headland even when weather not so good. Flat was warm, comfortable , stylish and spotlessly clean. Can't wait to come back !

Fantastic cottage like home from home great location have booked in advance for 2 yrs the owners have made fantastic changes super holiday home VERY ENVIOUS.

Comfortable clean and beautifully positioned overlooking the Island and beach We made use of the balcony in the evenings watching the glorious sunsets Comfortable bed and great shower with constant hot water and easy to use Kitchen very well equipped loved the lights in the drawers very handy when looking for glasses mugs plates etc highly recommended

This is a really well equipped property with fantastic views. You can just sit and watch the waves for hours. There is some great art work and a general homely feeling about the property which makes you feel at ease. Would love to stop here in the summer months when you would feel the full benefits of the balcony and terrace. Would definitely stop again

The apartment was a lovely place to stay the views were amazing and it was very relaxing. The appartment was very piecefull but still only a very short walk to st ives town where there are lots of shops, restaurants and bars to explore. This apartment was also very nicely decorated and was also very well equipped. I would defiantly like to visit this place again in the future and would also recommend it to family and friends. Great for a couple wanting a romantic break or for a family holiday.

A very nice apartment, lovely views from the balcony, near to shops restuarants beaches, did not need to use our car all week, good parking under the apartments. All we needed in the apartment, good kitchen, very good equipment. Lovely bathroom. The bedroom was really comfortable with a good sized balcony looking over a nice gardens. Very quiet position yet near to all you need. Very enjoyable.

Superb views and great location for everything.

Lovely place will try and book again for next year.

Fantastic view and secure parking allows you to park up and not access the car for the stay of your holiday. Two balconies allow you to catch the sun and be sheltered at the back, whilst enjoying the sunsets and views over Porthmeor from the front. Two bedrooms mean privacy for the second bedroom guests, rather than being in the lounge.

This apartment is perfect for anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in one of the best towns in Cornwall. You can sit in the apartment, and watch the world go by, whilst admiring the surfers on the beach, the children playing on the beach, and the walkers exploring the island. The staff were extremely pleasant, and very helpful. We will be rebooking for 2016 once the availibility has been published. Thank you Aspects for another fantastic holiday!
