Wonderful apartment, very well equipped with everything you will need. Superb location for St Ives town (5 minute walk to harbour). Fantastic view over the beach. Great to have parking all though a bit of a tight fit. Would definitely stay again in the future.


lovely flat, great location, we had a wonderful holiday. Will certainly look up Aspects again.

The flat is in a superb location with an amazing view and just minutes from the centre of St .Ives. The flat is equipped with everything you need and Aspect holidays dealt with a few issues we had immediately. Information pack very useful. We had a fantastic time and would not hesitate to stay there again and recommend to others visiting the area.

The parking is very tight and there are 4 flights of steps to carry your luggage up to the flat. A few niggles about the cleanliness. The bathroom shower screen still had soap residue on it and the toilet bin lid had not been cleaned as was thick with dust. We also found a couple of peanuts under the lounge table. Being told that there is a carpark higher up that we could have used just to unload our food and luggage before then parking in the lower allocated lot would have been useful.This would mean only having to go down 1 flight of steps.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

It's great to hear how much you enjoyed 37 Carrack Widden; it really is in a fantastic location, isn't it? And whilst there are 4 flights of steps, we are glad that it sounds like you agreed that it was worth it. We try to make the 4 flights of steps clear on the description, but your feedback on the alternative area to pull up and unload is a very good suggestion and something that we will check on before we add that to the route information. Parking is at a premium in St Ives as it was not built at a time when today's traffic was a consideration. Many properties do not have parking at all and those that do, they can sometimes be a little tight. The parking at this property hasn't previously been highlighted as one that is tight, so thank you for that feedback; we will continue to monitor feedback on this and double check on our next inspection of this property. We also wanted to apologise if any areas of cleaning had been missed. If we had been aware of this, we would have contacted this owner's housekeeper to get them sent straight back. We have since been in contact with them to discuss your feedback, so thank you for letting us know and we will monitor this very closely going forward. Thanks again for your comments and we hope that we will see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services

Excellent view , well equipped and comfortable apartment and handy location for centre of St Ives.

Had a lovely week apart from the daily rain but that’s British holidays for you !

This property was amazing great views, comfortable to come back to around 7/8 o’clock having been out all day to eat and relax ,watch tv. The only annoyance we’re the abundant steps and it did feel like Fort Knox unlocking doors and gates to get even near the front door and bonkers really because the property it easily accessible using one door from the back , if my husband was not such a great driver we would have really struggled to have got our car into the very restricted allocated parking space , overall would go back in a heartbeat, loved it.

Very clean and modern furniture which was comfortable. Lovely views and short walk to beach

Great accomodation with an amazing sea view and close proximity to the centre of St Ives.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 37 Carrack Widden. Comfortable accommodation with great views over the bay, convenient undercover parking and in walking distance of all that St.Ives has to offer. Dale and Caroline Torr

Absolutely fantastic apartment with stunning views over Porthminster beach, loved my morning coffee waking up to the beach filling up with holiday makers . Very comfortable bed and quiet too at night , great location 5 minutes walk into the town centre of St Ives with everything on your doorstep will definitely book again so sad to leave
