38 Carrack Widden is a stunning, comfortable flat with a fabulous view in an excellent location.

We commend the owners for their choice of decor and congratulate the house keeper as the flat is immaculately clean.

We have holidayed with Aspects for 15 years and have never once had an issue as their organisation is top notch.

This is the third time we stayed at 38 Carrack Widden and we will definitely be back again. The location is perfect, the view is amazing and the apartment is beautifully kept and very comfortable.

A great place to stay, great views. Well placed to all the local amenities and other places to visit. Couldn't fault a thing and would definitely visit again.

38 Carrick Widden is a well presented property. Comfortable, well equipped and has great views. Parking is a big plus and convenient for getting out of St Ives if you want to. We have stayed twice now and would stay again. Aspects are responsive and easy to deal with

Lovely very comfortable apartment which was very clean and welcoming. Beautiful views from large windows overlooking Porthminster beach. Despite St Ives being busy the apartments are quiet and the only noise was the seagulls! Would definitely stay here again. The apartment was well equipped and we had a great week here

38 Carrack Widden is a lovely flat. It is well positioned, and a quick walk into town. The carpark is a welcome addition although the space for number 38 is a little tight if you have a big car.

38 Carrack Widden is a very comfortable and well furnished apartment in St Ives. Great views and easy parking, an essential for us in St Ives. Gentle walk into town. Bit of a hill coming back. Aspects are very helpful, we have rented through them the last three years. Only a minor problem once and dealt with quickly. We like the fact that we can pick up the keys in Hayle on the way down, without getting involved in the St Ives traffic system and drop off on the way home.

You won’t be sorry staying here Stunning views from window, clean, comfortable, mod cons & central position.

You won’t be disappointed by number 38 Carrack Widden. The additional, personal touches such as ground coffee and a small gift pack of flavoured tea bags are thoughtful and it is nice that the owners obviously welcome their visitors rather than treating them as cash generators.

This flat is in a great location with a lovely view out to sea. The flat is very comfortable and has a large shower,all the rooms are decorated to a high standard,a flat that makes you feel at home.

We always book our holidays through Aspects and have never been disappointed.

Perfect base for our holiday in St Ives. In fact, we only used the car once during the whole week. Flat was clean and comfortable. Bed was perfect and led to a perfect nights sleep.

We have stayed at several Carrack Widdens over the years, 38 is one of the best, comfortable and spacious with good facilities.

Beautiful views across Porthminster beach. Apartment finished to a high standard. Loved the kitchen. Can easily walk to the harbour within 15 minutes so well located.

A first class flat which has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard.

Nice to stay somewhere where the owners are obviously proud of their property and are happy to share it!

Truly beautiful and stunning apartment, this really is a home from home. That view will certainly take your breath away, we could just sit there for hours. We couldn't fault a thing!

We saw the Dolphins!!

Absolutely lovely property the best we’ve ever stayed in. We were very sad to leave but we hope to return very soon. Couldn’t fault it in any way, we had a very pleasant stay and the view was stunning. Thank you very much.

We always know we will have a warm and comfortable stay what ever the weather, (including snow).

This property is perfect for a couple looking for somewhere within easy walking distance of the town and harbour with the added benefit of a parking space right behind the property. There are only a few steps to negotiate making the process of arriving and departing straightforward and stress-free. The flat is well-equipped and has the benefit of beautiful views over Porthminster Beach to Hayle and Godrevy Lighthouse beyond. Perfect for a relaxing break - short or long!

Great location, near the beach, apartment furnished to a very high standard, lovely comfy bed, powerful shower, flat screen tv, sofa, great views of the beach, free parking.

We have now stayed at No 38 twice. A lovely, clean and comfortable flat with a truly fabulous view. Right in town, and extremely convenient to a fabulous beach with restaurant and bar. A great location.

We have been coming to Carrack Widden flats since 1985/6 with different agents and different flats, but 38 is the best flat and Aspects are the best agents we have had.

An ideal cottage with everything you need, 300 yards from town. Excellent sea view

The cleanliness and views from the property (over looking the beach) were exceptional. The property location was just perfect and everything was within walking distance. We had the best time and didn't want to go home!

Best flat we have stayed in, in Carrack Widden. We have stayed in lots of flats here, this one is top's. All what you need. Good shower,bed, fittings, tv's lots of hot water. Flat finished to a very high standard, you will not be disappointed ! Thankyou for a very enjoyable holiday. Its a property you will rebook !

Fantastic accommodation! Superb in every way! Couldn't ask for more!

This property is a little gem in St Ives, it is close to all the lovely quant shops in the town centre, the railway station is really nearby and the trains run regularly and the fares are very reasonable. The bus station is also a stones throw away and there is a good bus timetable. The porthminster beach is literally right in front of the flat and accessible down a flight of steps, best beach in St Ives. Overall a fantastic place to rest relax and breathe in the sea air and eat at the many restaurants St Ives has to offer.

Stunning apartment excellent location view to die for

Beautifully decorated, extremely modern and comfortable apartment. Could you please include sunshine next time!

We had a lovely summer holiday at 38 Carrack Widden. Perfect location, parking space, beautifully decorated and the best view in St Ives!!! Thinking of booking again for next year! Really impressed :)

We have stayed in Carrack Widden apartments many times and 38 is now the best. They provide everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The staff try to help with any problems you may have.

Fantastic view and great modern apartment.

A very comfortable apartment. It made our holiday !!!! We have stayed in carrack widden properties on numerous occasions and this one is the best. Thank you.
