Amazing g property with first class fittings and amazing Crockery and glasswear ,most comfortable bed ever. Can’t fault anything.5 star.x

Had a brilliant stay for one week in Sandcastles. A proper home from home, amazing view, very well equipped & comfy beds. In a great location 10 min walk from harbour. Probably not great for less able bodied as on quite a steep hill but worth it for the view. Would definitely return.

Sandcastles was an excellent apartment with a great sea view and a pleasant outside space in which to enjoy it. The property was spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped in all areas and very comfortable. Access into town and out to other resorts was easy from this location, although the walk back up the hill is steep . However, a taxi at a very reasonable cost can overcome any tiring ascent. Sandcastles felt like a home from home and we enjoyed it so much that I am sure we will return soon.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Sandcastles, a lovely spacious apartment in a nice area within St Ives with wonderful views from the lounge and balcony. The parking space is convenient and a good size. We would stay here again without hesitation. We had to move our holiday due to Covid-19 and both Aspects and the owners of the property were excellent in helping us to achieve what we wanted.

Fantastic apartment with incredible views, comfortable accommodation, modern facilities and a parking space that did not require a 20-point turn for a medium sized car (rare in St Ives!). We will be back next year.

Very comfortable property with stunning views, short walk into town, will definitely be back.

Sandcastles was a beautiful, comfortable, spacious property in a great location.

Very comfortable and well-equipped modern apartment with a wonderful view across the bay. We will definitely return.
