Photos and Description of this Bequia holiday villa
2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4, great island cuisine, housekeeping included

Agnew Hall, a natural stone villa above the enormous Moonhole rock arch, overlooks crystal waters, coral reefs and a soft sand beach. The coral reefs offer terrific snorkeling and diving. The private Moonhole beach is only steps away. Please visit our website http://www.moonholecompany.com or http://www.flickr.com/photos/moonholebequia/ for more pictures of this house and other Moonhole rental villas.

Trade winds bathe the upper deck and cool the large living areas and bedrooms. Sounds of the sea surround – from the surge on the Caribbean side and the surf on the beach on the Atlantic side.

Frigate birds sail overhead. Seine boats anchor in the bight. Passing boats are the only traffic one sees. Moonhole is a 40-acre private marine, wildlife and bird sanctuary located completely 'off the grid' at the far western tip of Bequia. There are no roads here, only stone paths.

The Moonhole nature preserve: Tom and Gladdie Johnston founded Moonhole Company in 1964. Working side by side with carpenters and masons from the nearby village of Paget Farm, Tom built the original house beneath the enormous natural arch known far and wide as 'Moonhole.'

Over the years Tom and his crew constructed 16 more houses with stones from the site, native hardwoods, and materials reclaimed from the sea. Trees flourish inside the houses. Flowering tropical plants abound.

In 2000 Tom turned over the preservation of Moonhole to to a conservation trust to preserve Moonhole's natural beauty. As a member of the National Trust and through our private foundation, Moonhole Friends, Inc., we actively support environmental, educational and cultural activities on Bequia

Today the original Moonhole house may only be viewed from the sea There are no public tours. Although the Moonhole compound is private, the company does offer several of its original houses for rent by the week, month or season.

Life at Moonhole: Enjoy the peace and quiet of Moonhole. No roads, no traffic, only quiet paths wind through our compound. Relax and let our friendly staff care for you.. Swim in turquoise waters, dive for conchs and sand dollars, watch birds soar, sunbathe, swing in a hammock, enjoy the beach or hike the challenging Fishermen's Path to the tip of the island. Bring your mask and snorkel to the Bight, a gigantic aquarium filled with tropical fish and brilliant coral reefs. Or just relax and enjoy a good read. Fish from the beach or a deep-sea fishing boat. for 'the big ones.. Charter a sailboat to explore the Tobago Cays or take an inter-island ferry to visit Mustique, St. Vincent, Canouan, Union or other islands of the Grenadines. Explore the many other beautiful beaches, bays and coves around Bequia. Spend an evening on the town in Port Elizabeth where restaurants and nightlife abound. Spot a shooting star, gaze at the moon, and bask in the trade winds on Bequia, the 'island of the clouds.'

Getting here, getting around, and services: Most international travelers arrive via Barbados and take a short flight to Bequia on SVG Air or to St. Vincent on LIAT, and an inter-island ferry to Bequia. Our Managing Director, Winifred Kydd, will have a taxi meet you at the airport or ferry. A member of our staff will greet you at the Moonhole entrance and help you with your luggage.

We recommend that guests use the services of local taxi drivers. If you choose to rent a vehicle, we provide parking outside the Moonhole gate.

Housekeeping services are included in your rental rate. Our housekeepers cook and clean 6 days per week. They will provision the house and cook your meals, unless you tell them you really want to fend for yourself. We have a small commissary, but we bring in most of our fresh produce from the 'mainland' - as locals call the lush island of St. Vincent six miles to the north.

Pack light, bring light clothing, a couple of bathing suits and your sandals! Take it easy!

Perfect Honeymoon!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 02/03/2012
  • Date of Stay: Jan 2012
A unique place to spend your vacation. Definetely not for everyone as there's no hot water, electricity, internet, some windows/doors and other things you may be accustomed in your life. Us, we felt lucky and honored being there. Everyone we met was just so nice! It's a place to live in harmony with nature, take your time to admire incredibly beautiful views, listen to the waves and simply relax. Extremely romantic, with attention paid to every detail, it was a perfect choice for our honeymoon!
Owner's Response: We greatly enjoyed having you as our guests! All of us at Moonhole invite you back to celebrate your first anniversary (and many more). By this time next year we hope the St. Vincent authorities will have "officially" declared the Moonhole peninsula and surrounding waters to be a wildlife sanctuary and marine preserve. We're working with the Sustainable Grenadines Project and the people of Bequia to help make that happen. Meanwhile, we are continuing to renovate other houses, planting more trees and flowers, adding a little more solar power, and staying "off the grid."
All the best from your friends at Moonhole!

Lovely people (everybody helps and greets you, no matter if you don’t know them). A wonderful nature and sea life and the “I don’t want to go home factor”! A tranquil place in a running world. It was one of our best experiences and vacations ever!! We hope to come back soon, bis bald.

Agnew Hall – October 2011

  • Review Submitted: 27/10/2011
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2011
Arrived and thought “What is this place!!!” Then you reach your Moonhole House (ours was Agnew Hall) and the WOW factor takes over. Bedrooms with no windows and just the sea to lull you to sleep. Solar lights and rainwater so refreshing. Alison our housekeeper was so wonderful and kind, beautiful food. We loved our stay and wish everyone who comes feels the peace and relaxation we did. Thank you Winnie and the Team!

Agnew Hall - January 16, 2011

  • Review Submitted: 27/10/2011
  • Date of Stay: Jan 2011
Incredible experience holidaying at Moonhole. Delicious meals prepared by Eulene (lobster in butter sauce was our favorite!) and quiet attention was paid in ensuring every detail of our stay was enjoyable. The speedboat ride with Arnold over to Isle á Quatre and snorkeling in the lagoon was a highlight. Rather than feeling like we were roughing it, living off the grid felt like a natural luxury. We hope that this unique place stays true to Tom Johnston’s vision. Thanks to all.
