With mesmerising sea views and opulent interiors, Black Moon is a romantic break in Cornwall like no other. The private luxury apartment sits right upon the Celtic Sea and is an incredibly unique place to stay in St Ives.
KITCHEN & LIVING ROOM
The apartment has an open-plan kitchen and living room that look toward floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening onto a majestic view of St Ives bay. The water is so close that at high tide, it crashes against the side of the apartment, creating the same drama as being on a boat.
And better yet, an Enid Blyton-style trap door leads you to a private cave beneath the living room where you can lie on fur rugs whilst sipping a glass of champagne as you admire the sea views.
BEDROOM & BATHROOM
The bedroom, meanwhile, is separated from the living room by a sliding mirrored wall, allowing for some truly incredible St Ives sea views from the moment you wake up. To the rear of the bedroom is the en-suite bathroom with a full-size bath and walk-in shower.

Due to the nature of the property, we feel Black Moon is not an appropriate choice for those with young children/toddlers.

First class accommodation in outstanding area of beauty. Black Moon exceeded every expectation. Couldn’t find a single thing to fault.
Absolutely stunning accommodation and area with friendly locals. A perfect, 10/10 stay. Sand & Stone Escapes is a very respectable polite service.
Wonderful, sumptuous escape. Perfectly positioned close to the heart of St Ives but totally secluded from the world once within. The views over the water are spectacular. Thanks for a very special stay.
An unforgettable memory. It was so cosy and the cave made it even more epic. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Beautiful, wonderful, luxury apartment with incredible views.
Exceeded our expectations, the reaction of my wife as she walked into the accommodation was priceless. My wife and I were totally impressed by the location, views and service provided to such high standards. Cannot fault a thing. We have already recommended your property to many others who are also looking to make a booking.
We absolutely loved watching the tide come in from the balcony in the evenings. The property is beautifully decorated, it’s a very special place to visit. A truly unforgettable experience. Your properties are not for just sleeping in, they really help to make holidays even more special and you find yourself wanting to spend time in the cottages.
Black Moon exceeded our expectations. The accommodation was perfect, clean and we shall certainly not hesitate to return. Absolute wonder experience.
We very much enjoyed our stay. It was very restful, very comfortable bed and the view, well no comparison, it was outstanding! Fabulous location and the sumptuous décor was a nice change to the cottage feel of other places.
