A morning precesison led by the Mayor to bless the Well of St Eia. Following this, the Mayor will 'Hurls the Silver Ball' into a crowd of children who assemble on the beach below.

Bright and airy in summer, comfy and cosy in autumn. Excellent location with fab views. Stayed once before and will definitely be back again.

Oct 2019

Absolutely fantastic property, parking was easy enough, the views were amazing and the property was really comfortable. We have already booked to return next year!

Oct 2019

Had a fantastic time at this lovely property, fantastic location and views. easy access into St Ives and Beaches. Will return!!

Sep 2019

Aedes Canis is a lovely little modernised house in a good location close to the town and beach. It is well equipped and has plenty of room for four guests. Has lovely views of the sea and coast. The area is a little hilly so would be difficult for people with walking disabilities but that goes for St. Ives in general. The car park is a little tricky as you have to park tight to the neighbour wall. I managed fine with my Skoda Octavia, but it was on the limit.

Jul 2019

Loved our stay at Aedas Canis. The views from this property (from pretty much every window) are stunning. Found the accommodation to be nice and bright but also comfy and cosy. We appreciated having some outdoor space to relax in too. So much to do in St Ives, lots of good bars and places to eat out. So many great beaches. Gorgeous part of the Country. Just wish we didn't have to leave.

May 2019

A beautiful holiday cottage with all the facilities we needed (including excellent WiFi) and spectacular views over St.Ives and the sea. We spent a week surfing on Porthmeor beach (only 10mins walk away) and sightseeing in SW Cornwall. The cottage has parking (just large enough for a BMW 3 series), is only a few mins from the town centre and harbour but is far enough away that you can escape the hustle and bustle of the town.

We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.

Oct 2018

Stunning views especially at sun rise

Oct 2018

Great that you can collect keys from Hayle on arrival and drop off in St Ives town on departure. Welcome pack being posted out is a nice touch, makes it more personal and feels like the start of your holiday and that you are going to be looked after/treated like a valued customer by Aspects. Arrival/settling in email also a nice touch. Service v courteous and quick response to any issues. Nothing too much trouble. Housekeeping support ie Mark absolutely brilliant. Really friendly and professional. Well done Aspects!

Superb property

Aug 2018

Relaxing beautiful cottage , that lifts your spirits

May 2018

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

Oct 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.

Jul 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.

Apr 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.

Oct 2016

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

Jul 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.

May 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.

Oct 2015

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

Aug 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.
