We loved the holiday home. Spacious rooms. Two bathrooms. The views from the apartment are beautiful. The location excellent and central which was easy to get around. Loved it. Perfect for a family of 4.

Lovely apartment, within walking distance to town. Beware the hill, not suitable for those not fit to walk, but there are a couple of local taxi firms available. St Ives has many attractions, great holiday location.

Absolutely fabulous place so much space and spotlessly clean. We loved everything about it. Apart from the hill back up to the apartment but that’s a feature of St Ives!! Will definitely return.

Stylish, spacious and well equipped apappartment. Lovely private terrace area and parking right outside. Have already booked for next year!

Lovely apartment, extremely spacious and close to all the action

Wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again- fabulous apartment with everything you need for a great holiday.

Fabulous apartment Perfect location with on site parking Within easy walking distance to beach and st ives town Very clean modern interior Would definitely return and already recommend to family and friends.

Very clean, comfortable and spacious property. Great views over Porthminster from the side of the property. Parking right outside the door makes it very easy to unload on arrival. Fantastic walk down to the town with lovely views.

Great location.

We loved staying at Chy Kensa apartment 6. The decor was lovely, and so clean. The beds were super comfortable and they had everything you could possibly need. And having the parking space directly outside the front was superb. We loved sitting watching the sea view from the lounge window. The only downside was that it was up so many hills, I was 31 weeks pregnant so found this very difficult but we should of researched more before we booked. However if I wasn't pregnant the location was amazing,and we would definitely recommend and book in the future.

Superb apartment with parking right outside Have already booked again

A wunderful apartment, very well equiped and very calm.

We had a wonderful holiday at this apartment. We regularly stay in apartments both here and abroad, so it’s always a delight to find a great one you know you’ll return to. The apartment was immaculately clean and comfortable, providing everything needed for a home from home. A great bonus to have the two bathrooms (one en suite), and super spacious bedrooms. The on site allocated parking space is generously appointed, not squeezed in. But with the apartment being close to town and beaches - we only used the car for day trips. The apartment has sea peeps from the side windows and a small seating area right by the lounge patio doors which we made good use of. The overall design and layout is well thought out and the decor is contemporary, with a choice of ambient lighting for cosy evenings in. We would highly recommend this apartment and intend to return at some future date. Thank you to the owners, the cleaners and to Aspects - we had a wonderful stay.

Such a beautiful apartment. Really spacious. The owners have thought of everything. It’s really well equipped. We loved our stay here. The Lovatt’s

After our original apartment had an issue with a water leak Aspect Holidays really came into their own and sorted out new accommodation instantly.Well we really landed on our feet with moving to No;6 Chy Kensa. What a fantastic property! Two massive sized bedrooms, one with generous en-suite,large bathroom and spacious lounge/diner. Decorated in a very modern style with great views of the sea. It was that good I would love to buy it and retire there!

Everything was first class, the Apartment was beautiful, light airy and clean Bedding and towels were lovely Parking space right by the door ! Flowers in the borders, outside seating area was an extra bonus as well on sunny days.....
