The Moonhole is an iconic private eco-community that was established in the 1960’s on the western tip of Bequia in The Grenadines.
The small collection of eco villas sets in a unique nature reserve, a beautiful home enjoys breathtaking views Moonhole Bay, the sea and the nearby island of St. Vincent.
This villa is located a couple of minutes stroll from its own beach within Moonhole.
The home sits on the rocks of the Moonhole Peninsula overlooking the bay about 160 feet above sea level where it can catch the trade winds, minimizes the presence of insects and keeps the home pleasant and cool during the summer.
Built over two levels, the property features a total of three bedrooms. The upper level provides the main reception rooms, an outdoor deck and one of the bedrooms. The upper level includes a spacious sitting area, dining area with a long inbuilt stone dining table and benches, and kitchen area with stone and wooden cupboards and work surfaces. The living and dining area leads out to a superb open decking area with panoramic ocean views to the east and west and bar. One of the three bedrooms is also located on this level together with its own bathroom – this bedroom offers superb ocean views. There are two other bedrooms and a second bathroom on the lower level. The bedrooms have fitted closets and wide arched windows and doorways open to the cooling sea breezes.
The home comes equipped with a water storage tank and internet is available over the mobile data network with a mobile data card available from the local cell phone company.
As a popular rental villa with a long track record, this property offers the opportunity to generate rental income as well as making a wonderful vacation home.
The area is home to a limited collection of homes which were built in a unique, organic style which is open to the elements and ideally suited to indoor-outdoor living in the Caribbean.
With a private coral beach, Moonhole is ideal for enjoying privacy and peacefulness surrounded by nature from turtles, tree frogs and iguanas to magnificent tropical birds, relaxing in the warmth and snorkeling in the warm waters.
