We were very happy to return for another stay at number 6. Ideal position for beach or town. The apartment is ideal for 2 or a small family . The weather this time was rather stormy but it is a joy to sit warm & cosy watching the changing moods of the sea. We hope to be back.

We have so enjoyed our third visit to No. 6. Ideally situated for beach & harbour & the car park is such a bonus.Very much looking forward to our next visit.

We love St Nicholas Court and have stayed in several different flats there. The location is amazing, right next to Porthmeor Beach and a short walk to anywhere and everywhere in the centre of town. The secure parking is a huge bonus in St Ives and it’s great to just be able leave the car safe, undercover and close to the flat for a week. St Nicholas Court itself is secure too, with caretakers and a gate that’s locked overnight. It’s the perfect location.

Flat 6 is one of our favourites. It’s a little dated but it’s extremely warm, comfortable and very well equipped. We loved sitting on the large sofa, listening to the waves and watching the light change through the day. We even watched a seal from the lounge window one afternoon. It was wonderful to be within such a short walk of a number of restaurants, a shop and all the galleries on the Island.

Lovely apartment right by the beach and a view of the sea from the lounge. Very handy for walking around St Ives. Would visit again.

Really enjoyed our stay here. One settee has a nice sea view. Lovely sized tv that you can actually see. Welcome pack of teabags, milk and coffee - so thoughtful. The mattresses aren't overly comfortable but we have slept on worse. Would definitely re-visit. Unfortunately we couldn't use the car park - not enough headroom- however, the Island Car Park is a minutes walk away. Lovely clean launderette at £4 per wash which came in handy. Nice clean complex which we would recommend.

We are sorry to hear that the mattresses were not to your preference. It is always difficult for owners to find mattresses and sofas to suit everyone, but we will always monitor feedback on things like this. We are also sorry if the height restriction in the car park was not clear. We have now added height measurements on to the website description. Thanks for the helpful feedback and we are glad that you enjoyed your time in this lovely apartment. Tanya, Customer Services

Lovely apartment with sea view. Very warm and comfortable. (Not like usual holiday lets) Great wardrobe space.
Clean spacious bathroom with radiator. Would recommend.

Fantastic property, very well equipped and lovely and cosy. Superb location with the added benefit of on site parking.

Superb property and location. Such a fantastic stay and stunning view from the lounge window.

No.6 ST. Nicholas Court is a comfortable and relaxing place to spend your holiday. It is in an ideal situation for the beach and ease of access to restaurants cafes etc. It's all there waiting for you!

Another fantastic stay at number 6. The views at sunset are absolutely beautiful. Can’t fault this apartment.

Lovely property with fantastic views - we had bad weather but it didn’t matter as the sea views are so wonderful and we could sit and watch the waves for hours. The location is great, in very easy walking distance of both Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches, the Island - and indeed the whole of central St Ives. The flat itself is very clean, very warm and well-equipped, and the secure parking is a huge bonus. Aspects service is amazing, so helpful, and we have booked to stay here again.

Great Stay. FAB location, Lovely views from the front window. Very clean. Car Park is very tight but at least it has parking.

Lovely apartment in great location. Bonus is parking if you can use it! Will probably come here again.

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your time here at 6 St Nicholas Court. Unfortunately, at the time of your visit there were restrictions in place that meant that any properties with internal communal access areas were not allowed to be occupied other than by permanent residents. St Nicholas Court properties were fortunately not affected by this, but as the parking area was communal and covered, the council enforced a restriction on this area. We are sorry that you were not able to use this as a result, and hope that the alternative arrangements that we sorted out for guests were ok for you. Whilst guests were not allowed to use the parking area, the council permitted that permanent residents could still use the spaces, as well as trades and housekeepers that were required for essential preparations for guests due into properties. We are pleased to report that the parking area is available once again. Tanya, Customer Services

We enjoyed a wonderful, sunny 4 days at 6 St Nicholas Court. Fantastic location on the slipway to Porthmeor beach. Partial sea view from the lounge. The apartment is very spacious and bright. Homely and comfortable living/kitchen area. New cream carpets throughout. The convector heaters in the hall and bedroom were a bit smelly once turned on, so we kept them off. The two in the living area were fine. It was a relaxing place to be. Recommended.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed this property. That location certainly is fantastic isn't it? We are sorry that you experienced that smell from the heaters. Having just come out of another lockdown, the properties have been empty for several months, so the heaters have not been in use. Electric heaters unfortunately do smell a little when they are first used after a period of non-use, but that smell usually goes after they have been on for a few hours and doesn't then return unless they are not used for a long period again. We hope that it remained warm enough for you without using those ones and thanks for letting us know. We hope to see you back again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Excellent service from Aspects Warm and cosy Apartment with sea views, Parking, quiet location.Will certainly return here.

I have stayed at 6 St Nicholas Court Slipway many times and it never disappoints always a real pleasure ! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay close to our favourite beach and aspects always deliver an excellent service Thankyou see you again next year :)

We were both very happy at no.6.The beds and seating very comfy and the apartment in a great location. Also very well equipped for a restful and relaxing break.

Another great stay in number 6. The views from this apartment are brilliant for watching sunsets and I loved waking up to the sound of the waves.

Great central position with sea view from main Window. Plenty of space for two. Clean and well equipped. Car parking a bonus but some spaces a bit tight. Would stay there again had a brilliant week. Close to beaches,harbour, pubs and restaurants but stil not in a noisy location. Aspects very helpful as always.

Recommend for the fantastic location, secure parking and closeness to all beaches and attractions in St Ives. Great for couples and families who want to be near the centre but in a quiet oasis.

Beautiful apartment, very clean and the perfect venue for a get away by the beach.

Great location at a great price so very happy with our weeks stay and will be using Aspects again!

This was our third year running in 6 St Nicholas Court. We find the location fabulous, the view is lovely, the flat is spacious and comfortable. Aspects is a brilliant company to deal with, the fact that they are right there if you need anything is really reassuring to us, and the staff are friendly and accessible. Other than a magic wand to get here, or a longer stay, we couldn't wish for more - we'll back as soon as we can!

Another very enjoyable stay in no.6. A very comfortable & well equipped apartment, so handy for the beach & no worries about parking. We love St Ives & have lost count of the number of times we have returned, but staying in St Nicholas Court is such a bonus. So thank you Aspects, we will be back !

Good location, a very comfortable stay . We would certainly return to this apartment.

A warm, comfortable and well equiped apartment.

Very comfortable ,sunny apartment which we hope to book again soon.

We have stayed in no. 6 st Nicholas court for many years, and keep coming back! It is one of our favourite places to stay, very homely, a great location being near to the beach and town.

Beautiful flat in a fantastic location,with a wonderful view of beach and town. The only bad thing is that one has to go home!

Another fabulous stay in 6 St Nicholas Court, we are already looking forward to returning in 2019.

Great location and views over Pothmeor beach. Close to the town but far enough away fro peace and quiet

Lovely property, would strongly recommend it.

This flat is in a fabulous location literally a stone's throw from the ocean. The view is even better than the brochure suggests and the large opening windows give you full access to it. It is light ,bright and airy and we will certainly book it again.

The apartment is situated in a fantastic location nice and quiet two minutes away from the harbour fantastic beach

Our family of 4 have really enjoyed our 2 week stay at Slipway, 6 St Nicholas Court. The location is fantastic, parking is a great bonus and the view from the living room window is beautiful. We will be staying at the property again in the future and I hope we find wifi when we return.

Clean and comfortable accommodation in a fabulous location with views of Porthmeor beach.

Great value, nice light and airy appartment with view of the sea. All very good. Really lovely, comfy appartment and very good value. Quiet with very comfy beds, we enjoyed our short break.

We have booked properties through Aspects for many years and have never been disappointed. The younger members of our family are also "hooked" on St. Ives.

Fantastic location

for ease of booking no worries about car parking and accses to the beach , fantastic
