May 2018

Definitely worth a visit, stunning views, bright & sunny with the addition of a parking space right outside made it a perfect stay.

September 2017

Fantastic location with essential parking. Great views of St Ives. Very hilly town so would not suit less able. Quality and comfy accommodation. Would use again without question.

July 2017

This is a fabulous holiday let, just 8-10 mins walk to The Wharf & Fore Street, with its own parking space immediately outside the front door. The more chunky SUV type cars will not fit this space, be warned! The open plan lounge area is really relaxing. Kitchen is well equipped. In warmer, sunnier weather the garden & decking would be a bonus. DVD player and wi-fi much appreciated. This is St Ives so be prepared for some steep hills.

March 2017

Aedes Canis is a beautiful little cottage with a great location and fabulous views of St Ives harbour and Porthminster beach. The town and harbour can be reached within a 10 minute walk which is downhill, so be prepared for walking uphill on the way back. The cottage is light, airy and very well equipped with a dishwasher, washer/dryer, iron/ironing board. It has lovely little touches such as board games, books, lovely linen and crockery and binoculars for the sea views. We would love to stay again and could easily live there.

September 2016

A superb cottage, good location and very comfortable. Loved St Ives. Appreciated having parking space, garden and views. Would thoroughly recommend this property.

July 2016

Fresh colours and decoration. Very comfortably equipped and of good quality. Everything supplied for us to enjoy our stay. Fabulous views from bedrooms and sitting area.

April 2016

Extremely comfortable and clean cottage with marvellous views over St Ives from both side and French windows in the lounge/kitchen.. 'Upside down' property so some stairs to negotiate, and quite a climb up from the beaches and harbour, but if you don't like hills you probably shouldn't choose St Ives anyway.

October 2015

Stunning location and views from the property. With parking provision and a small outdoor decked area, it's ideal.

August 2015

We had a brilliant stay at Aedes Canis. It is in an excellent location, easy for both town and beach. It is also good for driving in and out of St Ives. Parking ok too and very nice to have. The accommodation was clean and comfy. Thank you to everyone at Aspects for a lovely cottage.
