Just home from our second stay at Morwenstow 1. The apartment is beautiful. Very modern. Very clean. Has everything you need. Great location. Highly recommend.

Jul 2020

We loved the high standard, views and location of this apartment.

Jul 2020

This was our fifth year in a row at Neptunes Rest and we still enjoy the stay as much as the first. The location is perfect with views from Smeaton pier to Godrevy lighthouse. The apartment is perfect for our needs as a base for the many great coastal path walks of Cornwall. We also love the great restaurants in St Ives.

Sep 2019

Stayed during July 2019 weather lovely. Great views from apartment and easy access for Porthminster Beach. Welcome pack of tea/coffee/milk on arrival. Walk down into St Ives easy and a steady climb back up. Would recommend.

Aug 2019

Great flat, gorgeous views, easy walk into town, lovely garden, flat was very clean, comfortable and accessible.

Jun 2019

We had a great week at Neptune’s Rest. Very highly specified and spotlessly clean apartment block with secure parking and easy access. Right on Hain walk, which allows a shortish walk to St Ives or Carbis Bay, although there are some hills to negotiate in both directions. Easy to get the car out of town, which is not always the case from St Ives. Lots of outside space and patio furniture, but unfortunately we didn’t get much sun on it in early September. A lift to our floor was another big bonus for us, and the key safe system was very easy, although we were still met and greeted, and shown to and around our apartment on arrival.

Sep 2018

Perfect ground floor apartment with large patio area and lovely outdoor furniture. Spotlessly clean with gorgeous interior. We love the location just far enough out of st ives centre away from the crowds but still within easy reach. The milk,tea, coffee, buscuits and bottle of wine are a lovely touch.

Sep 2018

Excellent apartment in a perfect location!

Sep 2018

This year was our third at Neptune's Rest. We love Cornwall and especially St Ives. The property is perfectly placed for views and getting around.

Sep 2017

Gorgeous apartment in a perfect location. Modern, high spec, clean apartment just what we were looking for. Home from home with a useful and much appreciated welcome pack on arrival. Lovely outside space with gorgeous views and a nice short walk down to the beach. Already booked for next year.

Sep 2017

Lovely apartment, stunning views with easy access to the beach and town.

Jul 2017

A perfect Appartment for a base to explore the beautiful areas around you in Cornwall. Morden chic and very clean. Every detail has been thought of to ensure guests are happy. Stunning views with the perfect patio for soaking them up.

Oct 2016

Close enough to the town and beaches but far enough away to feel like you are in the country, fabulous coastal views park your car and enjoy the holiday.

Oct 2016

Lovely property very convenient to St. Ives, no need to drive in and find parking. Lovely views in all weathers, day time and evening. Very well equipped and comfortable.

Aug 2016

Fabulous apartment in superb location in a stunning place!! We had a truly wonderful stay.

Sep 2015

Wonderful views, easy walk down to Porthminster beach and St. Ives but not an easy walk back up!

Aug 2015

Very well appointed modern apartment with great views and situated a stones throw from the beach (if you don't mind a walk up the hill!) However, there could be problems with the Wi Fi.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

I know that a member of the team has already been in touch with you since your return home, but again we would like to apologise for the problems with the wifi while you were there. It was a temproary issue, resolved with the network provider as soon as possible, but we are sorry that this happened, and the inconvenience it caused you. Tanya, Customer Services

Neptune's Rest is a great place to stay. Location is perfect, the property is clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Beautifully decorated throughout. It is quiet and had fantastic views out to the ocean and across to St Ives harbour. Can't say enough good things about it. We will definitely rebook if we return to St Ives.

Jul 2015

Super apartment, would definitely stay here again.
