Lovely apartment, comfortable and light with the addition of safe parking. Access to the swimming pool was a great benefit and the reason we booked this one. It was up a steep hill but we knew this and gave us much needed exercise.

A fantastic apartment close to town centre but quiet and peaceful with bonus of parking. The apartment is beautifully furnished and equipped. The walk to town and back is around 10 minutes and quite steep on return but you get used to it! I would highly recommend a stay here.

Very nice modern flat managed very well by lettings company. Only downside being very slow WiFi which is not great when you are trying to do some out of hours work.

It's great to hear you had a lovely time at Lowena Enys, but we are sorry you experienced slow internet. Following you reporting this, we had a look in the property and found that the router plug had been slightly dislodged, which may have caused the internet issues. Unfortunately, Wi-Fi connection and speed is not something that can ever be guaranteed due to this being provided by a third-party company, and in some remote areas speed can vary greatly, but we will always do whatever we can to assist if there are issues. Katy, Customer Services.

This property is just amazing easy to walk into town a little up hill to walk back. We have stayed here six times now and it never disappoints always so clean furnishings are lovely and beds so comfortable, everything you could want in the cupboards including washing liquid and dishwasher tablets. I would give this property 10/10.

Lovely, comfortable apartment with everything you need for a great holiday. Bit of a trek up from the town but worth it for the view across to Godrevy lighthouse.

Lowena Enys is the most lovely comfortable, light & airy apartment, with the most stunning views. It really is a perfect home away from home with everything you need to enjoy an outstanding holiday in St. Ives. You will never be disappointed by choosing Lowena Enys!

This property is amazing we have stayed there 5 times now and it’s like home from home. Everything you need is there.. it’s lovely and clean with great furnishings and the bed is so comfortable. Would definitely recommend

Lowena Enys is a lovely & comfortable apartment with everything you need to have a great holiday. It’s a home away from home and we loved our stay. The apartment was very clean and we loved the complimentary scones, cream and jam, what a lovely gift on arrival. The use of the spa facilities is a wonderful extra bonus and my husband and son enjoyed the gym and pool there everyday at the hotel. The beaches at St. Ives are amazing and we had the best time.

Aspects holiday places are the best in Cornwall, I've always booked with them and always will I'm never disappointed

Lovely accommodation, good location for St Ives! Property very clean and has everything you need! Not far to walk into the town, just be aware you are on a hill, so good exercise:)!

Great property, very comfortable and well equipped

Beautiful apartment with gorgeous views to Godrevy. Could quite easily never move from the decking area very peaceful.

A lovely, light and spacious flat with a distant view of the sea. Anyone with disabilities or the elderly would need a car with them be able to explore St Ives town.

The hotel where you benefit from being able to use the pool and spa is 15 minutes walk away down a steep hill. It has a spiral stair case to get to the club so it may not be suitable for everyone.

We had to rely on taxis to get around and all the drivers know the apartment. The taxi drivers were all very helpful.

Thank you for your comments. We are glad to hear that you liked Lowena Enys. Sitting in this great location above the town, away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to walk in; does involve an uphill walk back to the property after a day at one of the stunning beaches or many lovely restaurants or shops in St Ives. The walk may not be suitable for everyone, but for those who are not so keen or able to walk into town and back, there is a very regular bus service that runs most of the year from the leisure centre that is a short, level stroll from the property. The spa in the hotel has a lift, so there is a way to avoid the spiral staircase, but it is always worth checking with us on the suitability of any property and advertised facilities, before booking, if any members of your party have any disability or mobility issue that may need to be considered when choosing the best property for your holiday here. Thank you again for taking the time to send this in and we hope that we will see you back here in Cornwall in the future. Tanya, Customer Services.

This apartment is absolutely lovely if your looking for a good quality, everything inside is done to a high standard everything in the kitchen for self catering you could wish for. The bed is lovely and comfortable with good quality bedding even the TV has all the sky channels. Perfect location five minute walk to the town and restaurants. We have stayed here twice and have reserved it for another two occasions can't fault it.Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful apartment in a very quiet part of town. It's a short, steep walk uphill from town but there are taxis available for around £5 which works out cheaper for a party of four people than taking the shuttle bus to the leisure centre car park (bus passes not accepted). Apartment very clean and well maintained and perfect for two couples. Would highly recommend.

Excellent apartment with Parking. Inside is very comfortable, with everything that is required. We didnt cook there as we always eat out but the kitchen had everything you needed .

Excellent to have passes to use at The Spa at the Harbour Hotel, which was first class !

It is a steep walk back up from town but there are several routes ...

Outside table and chairs to use as well.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lowena Enys. It really is a home from home and is perfect for couples (or in our case mother and daughter), friends or a small family. The sea view is even better than shown in the pictures, the apartment is very well equipped, we had no problems with parking, we enjoyed the walk down (and back up!) from St Ives, and we made use of the spa at the Harbour Hotel (and discount on drinks at the bar!), both of which were a lovely 'extra' to our holiday. We will definitely be back, although perhaps with our own pillows! (We did not find the bedding to be that comfortable but that is probably down to personal preference.)

What a beautiful apartment everything it said it would be. Instructions given prior to arrival were very clear and concise. Communication with Aspect Holidays was excellent from booking to arriving in st ives. We will definately use the company again.....thank you for helping us to have a wonderful holiday.

A lovely, clean and comfy property, quite a pull up out of town but the park and ride bus is just along the road and only a short level walk away, the driver will stop by the flat if you ask. Our favourite meal was at The Mermaid but you must book well in advance

The apartment is excellent, clean, comfortable and well equipped and proved to be a lovely base to explore beautiful Cornwall. The hill up to the apartment from St Ives town was was not as bad as anticipated and the view from the apartment terrace makes it so worthwhile!

A lovely holiday :-)

Lowena Enys was an absolutely beautiful place with a great sea view as an added bonus. The apartment was spotlessly clean, even inside the wardrobes and drawers and it had everything you could possibly need during your stay. A little tip, if you walk just down the hill a little until the first give way markings and turn left, you're about 5 minute walk to the bus stop outside the leisure centre and the bus that takes you directly into St Ives, it saved our legs. It is a great base and we travelled all over Cornwall from here. Really quiet and calm location would definitely stay again and we're already looking at dates next year!

Superb place to stay for the week in St Ives, everything you needed and in a quiet area. We had a wonderful holiday and a big part of that was staying at Lowena Enys.

Apartment absolutely fantastic, plenty of room and spotlessly clean. Beds were super comfy and lovely white linen and towels. Super views too and good outside space which is far better than one with a balcony. Some reviews say it’s up a struggling hill but you have to find different routes. We found one by turning right outside of apartment, follow road straight down, cross over main road where sign is on corner for Leisure Centre and just follow path straight down and this will bring you directly into St. Ives. This way it is only a gentle hill, please don’t let this put you off booking this wonderful apartment.

What a wonderful apartment. So clean and everything in it was really good quality, short walk into St Ives (10) mins. I would definitely go back and recommend this as a lovely place to stay.

This is a beautifully furnished comfortable apartment with a wonderful view across the bay to Gwithian beaches and Godrevy lighthouse. It is in a really convenient position, not far from the centre of St Ives. Being on the southern side of town it is easy to drive out too. It was great to have a parking space. There were 2 passes for HarSpa which we would have loved to have used had it not been for Covid risk. Next time! We were really pleased to have found this apartment and would definitely book again. However, it is a good walk back uphill to the apartment so may not suit everyone.

You will love this apartment. Has fab views, on a good day. Lovely and clean and tastefully decorated. Little way out of the town but quiet.
Has car space, always a bonus in St Ives. The hill up to the apartment got easier by the end of the week, as quite steep.
Loved it.

We all had a wonderful time and the accommodation was perfect and very comfortable Location is spot on and we loved the walks and enjoyed the scenery along the way. St Ives is a stunning place and we shall definitely be back. Thank you Aspects Holidays for looking after us so well too.

Had a fantastic week! The apartment was so bright, clean and airy, we instantly felt at home.

Lowena Enys was perfect for our family holiday. This was the first time we had stayed in an apartment rather than a house but the space worked really well for us and we loved the open plan living area with its sea views and al fresco breakfasts. We enjoyed the short walk to town and Porthminster Beach to explore the shops, galleries and restaurants and to relax in what turned out to be a very sunny holiday!

Beautiful luxury apartment with all modern appliances. We loved the membership passes to the Harbour hotel spa and our daily walks around the beautiful harbor and beaches of St Ives. Can’t wait to visit Cornwall again and another stay at Lowena Enys.

It is a very beautiful and lovely apartment with all the appliances you need provided to make your stay comfortable. It was a relaxing holiday and we enjoyed our stay at the apartment.

Great place for a visit. Walking in to the town good exercise!

Stayed here for 4 nights fairly late booking, aspect were really attentive as always. This place was so clean and tidy, really modern and well furnished. It was quiet and even though it is a ground floor flat it felt really safe. We would love to stay here again and thoroughly recommend it to anyone else considering a trip to the lovely St Ives

Lovely property. Really enjoyed our stay to see in the new year.

Very nice apartment, however not really suitable for elderly holiday makers, due to its location high on the hill. ( I needed oxygen after walking from the Town to the apartment ).

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your comments and we are glad to see how much you liked it. Being in such a great location, away from the busiest areas of the town but close enough that you can still take a stroll in, does involve a bit of a steep walk back up to the property if you are on foot, however, there is a very convenient bus service which drops you almost right outside the door, if you don't fancy or can't quite manage the walk. Once there, this property is conveniently located on the ground floor, with no stairs, making it possible to leave your oxygen tank at home ;-) Please do not hesitate to get in contact with us for any advise on this before booking. Thanks again for your helpful comments, and we hope to see you back here again soon. Tanya, Customer Services.

Super apartment. Perfect for al fresco breakfasts with a sea view!

Lovely apartment, beautifully presented. We will be returning!

Really lovely apartment. Well placed, equipped and comfortable. Would certainly stay again.

Great location for Porthminster beach.

New apartment,well finished off every thing you need for a great stay
