Slap bang in the heart of beachy St Ives you’ll find two old properties with newly-renovated interiors. Moon Shadow is in a thriving arty area on the coast road and you can stroll to Porthmeor beach in a minute.
Nearby Black Moon sits right on Bamaluz beach. Fling open the French doors and gaze out to sea, mirrors make the space feel bigger and the living room has a fun glass floor – you can even go through the trap-door to a romantic cave and watch the waves crash in.
Whichever you choose you’re in a great spot for surfing, swimming and paddle boarding, hiking the demanding coastal path in either direction, evenings in arty bars and afternoons wandering the streets and galleries of St Ives.
