An excellent last minute week and we couldn’t have picked a better place. The location of the property is perfect. The apartment has everything you need and more. Parking space is a great addition.

Our second stay in low tide, we just love the location, the parking space and the homely feel, very comfortable for our small family.

Low Tide is in an excellent position within St. Ives. It has parking onsight which depending on your vehicle is a little tight. It is on the main road but the vehicle noise wasnt too bad. View from front window is beautiful. Only 3/5 minutes walk to beach and town centre. We would stay here again.

Lovely stay at Low Tide, very comfortable, clean accommodation, close to St Ives Centre and with gorgeous views from the front room window. Free parking is a bonus to this property. We will definitely be booking again.

The location of Low Tide was excellent for our needs. Close enough to walk to all parts of St Ives whilst giving easy access for the car, enabling us to drive to other parts of Cornwall. Also easy access to the train station to catch the train to Penzance.

We loved our time at Low Tide and St Ives. If we were ever to return to St Ives we would certainly be looking to book in at Low Tide.

The staff at Aspects were both friendly and helpful during our stay. Communication was also excellent.

Warwick and Barbara Anderson Australia

Perfect for our small family, the parking is a bonus and the apartment was bright and spacious and well equiped with everything from cleaning products to games, books and everything you could need for the beach! The huge window is the perfect place to read bedtime stories to our daughter whilst looking out at the sea, perfect end to the day.

A very well equipped property with a beautiful view in an excellent location. Can't wait to go back!

We would recommend this cottage to anybody. The accommodation was excellent. Sunny position and wonderful views of the sea. Although quite cold when we were there the property itself was very warm and welcoming.

Great location and perfect size for a family of four.

Lovely, comfortable, well equipped apartment. Great to have parking which is like gold dust in St Ives. Fantastic location, couldn't ask for better.
