Build with Nature at its heart
The land was not cleared to build but the buildings woven into the natural elements of the location, rocks, trees, cliffs the properties represent Architecture in a discussion with the natural environment which in turn gives those lucky enough to stay here a sense of engagement with the natural surrounding.
Staying at Moonhole is a very satisfying and relaxing experience.

Sculptural Organic Forms
This unique community sculpted from the local stone and curved like the headland itself offers guests a unique home ownership experience. The architectural style, reminiscent of Gaudi's Barcelona curves blends beautifully into the natural landscape.
The twisted trunks of native trees incorporate their forms into this property through the arched windows that surround the property.

Recently Renovated - This was one of the original Moonhole houses
The location was irresistible and the property was built by the founder Tom Johnston.
As one of the largest of the houses amidst this unique community Generation Gap rises 80ft in the air from the waterfront and sleeps 6 in 3 distinctively different bedroom suites.

New York Times on Moonhole Community
”It is a quirky 19-home ecologically oriented development built of native stone, with whalebone accents, on the steep hills of the island's southern tip. The name comes from a soaring natural arch on the shore through which the moon can be seen at times. The whalebones, remnants of aboriginal whaling by the islanders, are big enough to work as elements like stair railings. The houses, which rely on solar electricity, rainwater and propane tanks, are mostly fanciful open-air affairs with lines blurred between indoors and out.”

Steps down to the beach
There are a series of stone steps that lead down from the house to the beachfront.

Moonhole Nature Reserve
This is a nature lovers paradise with a wide variety of indigenous creatures to be seen including Green Turtles, Fruit Bats, Iguanas, Lizards and Tree Frogs. Some wild birds have been known to nest inside the houses at Moonhole due to their proximity to the ocean, birds like Carib Grackles, Egrets, Blue Herobs and Ground Doves are frequently seen.
Moonhole History & Community
Founded by Thomas and Gladys Johnston in the 1960s, Moonhole is now a private nature preserve. In the late 1960s, the Johnstons retired from the advertising business in New York and founded the Moonhole community on the narrow western tip of the island. Using whalebones, native hardwoods, and objects recovered from the sea, they built large open rooms with magnificent views of the sea. There is a bar, made from a whalebone that has been built in the main living area of the house.
Queen, Tree & Seaside Bedrooms
There are 3 comfortable bedrooms all with their own private bathroom. The Queen bedroom also has a living room area and the large windows that run the length of the bedroom face the sea and are framed with vivid Bougainvillea. The Tree Bedroom, as the name suggests, is the top level sleeping area. A large gum tree grows up through the sun deck offering shade and a place to hang the hammock. The Seaside Bedroom, one of the newest additions to the house sits just above the beach, has a large private bathroom and is cooled by the offshore breezes.
Tropical Gardens with Palms & Vines
The gardens surrounding the house are lush and offer additional privacy and shade and feature extensive tropical vines, flowering shrubs and native fruit trees.
Natural Stone Dining & Sun Deck Areas
The Moonhole properties feature curvy stone sun decks, terraces and seating areas, quite unique to the community. The main stone dining area seats up to 12 and the central garden can be enjoyed from an exterior seating space.
Internet at Moonhole
Internet usage at Moonhole is easily obtained over the mobile data network with a Mobile data card from the local cell phone company.
