I am writing this review on our last night at Black Moon, with the patio doors open and the sea lapping onto the beach outside our window. Our 4 night stay at Black Moon is the first leg of our honeymoon, and if we didn't have some other wonderful places to visit, I would be refusing to leave! The apartment oozes style and quality, and the attention to detail is second to none. The location is excellent, with all of St Ives on our doorstep. Fabulous start to our married life!

“Well worth waiting for”

Having seen Black Moon featured in a newspaper some time ago, I knew it would be the perfect place for our annual anniversary break. I tried for last year, but it was booked. So I booked at the time for this year. Well, we can say with all honesty it was well worth the wait.
It was everything we had imagined it would be. The location couldn't be bettered, literally on the sea with the sound of the waves a constant pleasure. The apartment itself is superbly appointed, with the attention to detail rivalling many of the 5* rated hotels we have stayed at. The lighting was fabulous, but most evenings we contented ourselves with a glass of wine and some - you'll understand when you get there - of the candles which are thoughtfully provided (and with an abundant replacement supply of the tealights). We loved the change in decor, from the light and airy feel of the living space which complimented perfectly the view, to the more intimate feel of the bedroom and bathroom. The mattress was incredibly comfortable, my husband reckons the best he's ever slept on, although we would have preferred firmer pillows. The bathroom is incredibly luxurious. Apart from tea in the morning we didn't really use the kitchen area, but it appeared to have everything you would need. Sitting at the breakfast bar overlooking the ever changing seascape couldn't be bettered, apart from perhaps waking up to the sound of the waves. The cellar was quirky, but we didn't use it as it smelt a bit musty (the only slight negative).
St Ives is a wonderful place to stay. We had some lovely walks along the headland - fortunately the weather was kind to us, although we had been looking forward to hearing and seeing dramatically crashing waves, rather than gently lapping, but you can't have everything. The town itself is lovely to wander around, with plenty of places to eat and lots of interesting shops and galleries. We had planned to tour Cornwall a bit, but decided to have a completely restful break as you can't improve on perfection. The parking space was a godsend and so the car had a holiday too.
Our highlights, apart from the apartment itself, which was wonderfully relaxing to sit with a book and was almost better than sitting on overcrowded beach; were a wonderful meal at Portmeor restaurant, which was completely unpretentious, but with fabulous food. And we bought some lovely art from the Art House Gallery, which is just 100 yards away and run by exceptionally friendly people who were incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and not at all pushy.
I have to say that we saved a bundle booking Black Moon so far in advance, but we felt that even at current prices we would feel this was well worth it. We had a fabulous stay and couldn't recommend this place highly enough. It is ideal for a romantic getaway. Treat yourselves! Our only dilemma is whether to return next year.

We have stayed at some fantastic places, but this accommodation is at the top of the list. The location is stunning. We have loved listening to the waves crashing against the rocks and an evening visit from a seal as the tide comes in. The quality of the accommodation is of the highest level. The little touches make it special and we love the lighting and the candles. St Ives is brilliant for a nice break with lots of great shops and restaurants. We will definitely return. Thank you.

This is a very special place and we tried to find the perfect word to describe it, we decided on 'sexy'!

“The perfect romantic treat and retreat.”

We stayed for 5 nights end of January, early February. The photos do not do it justice. It has been luxuriously and thoughtfully fitted out. The lighting, candles and furnishings create a very romantic atmosphere. An extremely comfortable bed, stunning views, as the previous reviewer advised - just treat yourselves and book and enjoy!
