Staying at Moonhole in Bequia

Enjoy your Bequia vacation in an exquisite Moonhole property . . .

Bequia's Moonh
ole peninsular is almost another island in itself - it is the perfect tranquil escape from the hussle and bussle of everyday life, in a natural and simply stunning environment. There are three villas at Moonhole available for rent through Grenadine Island Villas - Moonrise, Tranquility and Burke House. The Villas are eco friendly, with Burke House for example having no electricity, and this feature along with the beautiful natural stone architecture adds to the charm of the properties. Moonhole has its own private white sandy beach, and it is nothing short of enchanting to walk to the hillside and relax in the sunshine. The idea with these properties is to unwind in privacy with nature surrounding you, and simply sink into a different pace of life during your stay.

With dramatic cliffs dropping off into the Caribbean ocean on one side and the secluded Moonhole Beach on the other, Moonhole is at an amazing location. The Villas are ideally situated on the crest of a hill on this private peninsula to provide views of beaches, islands and tropical flora. These fabulous Bequia villa rentals are directly above some of the best dive sites
on Bequia, with magnificent underwater reefs and tropical aquatic life.

These are not your average Caribbean rental villas. Bequia's Moonhole Properties are really special, and make for a really memorable, unique experience. Contact the team at Grenadine Island Villas for further information or if you have any questions. If you are on island, we can arrange a viewing at one of the properties to determine if you would like to stay at Moonhole for your next vacation.

Guest feed back shows that the villas are amazing options for accommodation - something out of the ordinary that enables you to relax and feel at one with the nature around you.

"We had a GREAT time at Moonhole. It was unbelievably gorgeous and in a very natural setting. The service was top notch and professional."

There are house staff on hand to allow you to relax even further during your stay - at Moonrise, for example, there is a maid who visits daily, and a fantastic cook to prepare your meals.

"Thank you for a piece of paradise the views at Tranquility in Moonhole are like no others where we have been. At one with nature through the day and evening. Doro is truly a wonderful representation of the Bequian outreach to visitors. She was gracious always and presented our meals with a master chef's style, we look forward to out return visit, how could you not." (Nancy and Vershey, Minnesota, USA March 2007)
