9 cordyline croft is a very comfortable and well equipped property in a quieter location in st Ives. Parking useful and we enjoyed the access to the harbour hotel facilities

Sep 2019

An excellent well equipped property with allocated parking. We found it nice & quiet. A good 10-13 minute walk to Porthmeor, (our favoured beach) which was fine. The walk back up steep but good exercise so didn’t mind & knew this before booking. Would recommend.

Aug 2019

Beautiful apartment that is decorated and furnished to a five star standard. Aspects offer a very friendly and helpful service.We would definitely recommend.

Jul 2019

A lovely high specification of apartment. Great to get the use of nearby hotel spa facility. Lots of lovely resteraunts and cafes near by as well as great beaches. St Ives centre is about a 10 minute walk and very easy on the way down but is quite steep getting back up! Nice quiet area and great area for getting around Cornwall from and returning back to a great base. We all enjoyed!

Apr 2019

Beautiful apartment with lovely views. The location was fine for us but there are a lot of stairs/hills to climb from St Ives. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you’ll need. So comfortable, we can’t wait to stay again.

Sep 2018

Great, very well presented and equipped apartment. Felt like home away from home.

Jul 2018

A fabulous very well equipped apartment with sea views to the front and side. A short walk or bus ride will take you into the centre of St Ives and all of the amenities that they have to offer. With freeview television and wifi you can keep in touch with the world or totally relax on the balcony perusing the tourist information and planning what to do with you time. If the weather is not good there are board games and books for you to play and read and if you do venture on a rainy days there are umbrellas in the hall to keep you dry.
