Saint Vincent & the Grenadines
Eco Villa in Established Nature Reserve
Moonrise is a beautiful eco friendly villa, just a short stroll away from its own private beach with magical views overlooking Moonhole Bay, the ocean and island of Saint Vincent beyond.
Moonhole is a unique nature reserve, the small collection of eco villas are situated within the rocks overlooking the bay itself.
Moonrise is about 160 feet above sea level, high enough to catch the trade winds, keeping the temperature pleasant and refreshing even during the summer months and minimizing the presence of insects.
2 Levels of Moonrise
Moonrise is based upon 2 levels with the upper level presenting a superb open decking area with wide ocean views east and west.
A bar/ counter is situated at the entrance, ideal for food preparation and entertaining. Inside is a spacious lounge and living room with a long inbuilt stone dining table and benches.
The kitchen area to the rear has stone and wooden cupboards and work surfaces. On this upper level is also one of the 3 bedrooms with its own bathroom and WC with a superb ocean view.
The lower level comprises the 2 other bedrooms and the second bathroom. There are fitted closets in the bedrooms. The windows and doorways are wide, arched and open to the cooling sea breezes.
Visitors arrive at the Moonhole gates by taxi, and from there reach the house via a network of stone paths that connect the community. The paths are maintained by the Moonhole Homeowners Association.
Private Coral Beach
Only a 2 minute walk from the private coral sand beach (great for snorkeling), this is a genuine retreat, and it almost feels like you're on your own separate island!
Originally a handful of private houses built for friends of Tom and Gladdie Johnston, the founders and architects of Moonhole, it now comprises about fourteen homes, all members of the Moonhole Homeowners Association. The homes are unique and natural and embrace the windward breezes throughout.
