Excellent accomodation with superb views across St Ives bay, having parking is excellent being so close to the town but without the hassle actually driving through the town.

Sep 2019

Small compact flat well located. Ideal for one or two guests. Lovely sea views

Sep 2019

We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment! It was our second time there, this time celebrating our honeymoon.

On arrival to pick up the keys we were greeted by a lovely member of the Aspects staff with a card and a bottle of prosecco. What a wonderful surprise!

The apartment as before was clean, comfortable with beautiful views from every window. The location with included parking is perfect for us. It is only a short walk to gain access to the beach and the centre of St Ives.

We will definitely be staying again in the future!

Great apartment, perfect for 2 adults, or a family with younger children, although does sleep 4 would be a bit close for comfort if all adults. Would definitely stay again.

Excellent location and accommodation , St Ives is a lovely place to visit and the location is so close to the beaches and town .

Apr 2019

An excellent, small but perfectly formed apartment with the most amazing views out over rooftops towards the harbour and over Porthminster beach. With the windows open you can hear the sea. Perfect for a couple with plenty of comfy seating, comfy beds and lots kitchen equipment. Clean and quiet - I would say here again and would recommend it to friends too.

48 Carrick Widden - views from apartment windows are amazing, alot better than I thought. Parking was excellent with good facilities on site. Only 5 minutes walk to the town centre and beach. Comfortable for two people but I think it would struggle with four people.
