Great large family house With stunning views And the table tennis is a great addition.

Sep 2020

A victorian house with all the mod cons, the garden at the rear with its 3 tier layout was completely unexpected. Information we were given about a parking space round the back of property for a small car was spot on, my daughter has a Skoda Fabia and it was a close call getting the car out. Overall a great experience, great location, lovely house in a great resort.

Sep 2020

Loved Albany once again & have booked again for the autumn

Feb 2020

This is an excellent house in a great location. It is exremely comfortable and spacious. It offers all the facilities and equipment that you would expect if you were in your own home. Strongly recommended.

Oct 2019

We had a super family holiday at Albany House ( our third visit).Lots of space, light and airy, thoughtfully and very well kitted out. Warm and cosy too, when necessary. Wonderful views from the front of the house.

May 2019

A lovely house (the view from the front bedroom is beautiful) in a really great location. We've stayed twice and will be back!

Apr 2019

Excellent position, quiet location and easy walk to Porthminster Beach. Light, airy rooms. Comfortable property.

Nov 2018

A beautiful house, with lovely views and a great location. A great feeling of light and space. We had a wonderful time, thank you.

Nov 2018

This is a lovely big house with a fabulously spacious (and very well equipped) kitchen/family room at the front, with views over the bay. It works really well for a larger family, with three bathrooms (only one shower indoors but there's an outdoor shower for after the beach, with hot water) and a big utility with washer and drier. It's a bit further out of town than other places we've stayed in St Ives, but only a 10-minute walk and easy access to Porthminster beach, and you can walk round to the harbour on the sand when the tide is out. A lovely house, and we'll definitely book again.

Oct 2018

Spent a lovely week at Albany house It has everything you need We all enjoyed it

Aug 2018

Lovely, spacious and comfortable property in an excellent location.

Jun 2018

A really well equipped and lovely house situated in a fantastic location. Not for anyone with mobility issues though!

Jun 2018

Albany Terrace is a great property in an ideal position to explore st Ives .The furnishings are comfortable and it was impeccably clean. The views are amazing I wouldn't hesitate to come back and am already considering returning next year.

Mar 2018

The cottage has a fabulous warm and welcoming feel as you walk through the door. The views from the front windows are so captivating and relaxing it is hard to tear yourself away from the cottage to explore St Ives. The kitchen is so well equipped which makes it a pleasure to cook, and then dining looking out at the beautiful sea views is what a holiday is all about.

Feb 2018

Such beautiful views of the bay, dog friendly, easy access to town and beach, parking! What more do you need.. a wrench to come home.

Feb 2018

Very spacious and comfortable house. Parking spaces a real bonus for St Ives. Will certainly book again. Thanks to Aspects who managed the booking brilliantly.

Dec 2017

No1 Albany Tce is a lovely house set in peaceful location with views over porthminster beach. The house is very well equipped to cater for your needs. An easy downhill stroll takes you to the town centre either by road or via porthminster beach. With car parking for up to three cars nice gardens and pet friendly too Albany House is a lovely place to take your break

Nov 2017

Very comfortable, clean, well equipped house with the added bonus of parking. One of the nicest stays we have had in St Ives and we have been many, many times.

Oct 2017

Lovely property. Would definitely book again.

Sep 2017

As advertised in the video. Simply wonderful!

Sep 2017

A fantastic view from the property. Comfy sofas and lots of space. Really well-equipped kitchen too. Fantastic location

Jun 2017

Albany House is full of light and spacious so ideal for a group of friends and family. The views are great from the house and garden too. The garden , front and rear, are really lovely and give a feeling of space. We would like to visit again. The owners thoughtfully kitted it out .

May 2017

The house is really spacious and the kitchen/dining room is the perfect place for everyone to hang out. If you are lucky with the weather as we were the garden is an excellent bonus, a beautiful sun trap with the added benefit of a table tennis table (very popular with our children). The view in the morning from the front of the house is something else. We loved everything about this house.

Apr 2017

Albany House is a wonderful property, of large proportions with light flooding through it. There are many lovely touches to make the property feel like a home-from-home. The views of the sea are uplifting as are the sounds of the seagulls. We booked through Aspects Holidays, who were friendly and efficient from start to finish. Albany House is an ideal base for a holiday in St Ives. The size of the property, sea views and ease of access to beaches and town make it good value for money. An added benefit is the car parking, especially the large space at the bottom of the garden at the front. We hope to visit again soon!

Apr 2017

Spacious and a great choice for a large family group or for two families to share; equally excellent for groups of friends. Perhaps not so good however if these groups had babies in push-chairs/prams or elderly/disabled members because of location and access.

Sep 2016

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you liked Albany House, and that the space worked well for your party. There is a gravel path leading to the front door, which may be a little tricky to negotiate with prams/pushchairs, and being over 3 floors, with the painted stairs that we mention, and having a terraced garden to the rear that involves a number of steps to the different levels; it would be something that may need to be considered for certain members of the party. We are always happy to answer any questions to help you decide if a particular property is suitable for your party, so please do not hesitate to get in touch if you are ever looking to book through us again, and the location and access to the property is an important consideration for you. We hope that Albany House still worked well for all of you, and hopefully we will see you back here soon. Thanks again. Tanya, Customer Services

a beautiful and well equipped house.

Aug 2015

We would definitely come back

Aug 2015

Albany House is the perfect base for a family holiday in St Ives. Lots of large, tastefully furnished and decorated rooms means theres plenty of space for everyone.The Children loved the outside shower and all have stated they want to come back next year.

Jul 2015

Lovely house but could be even better with a few improvements to heating, bedding and hot water.
