In Moonhole on Bequia Island you can live deeply connected with sun, wind and the sea, undisturbed by the sounds of modern living. If you are looking to get away from it all and experience eco friendly living, this Caribbean destination has it all. Moonhole is a private community on Bequia Island in the Grenadines that comprises 25 acres of rich wooded land with 19 private dwellings of which only a few are available as vacation rentals. All the houses are built from native stones into the hillside and rely on solar electricity, rainwater and propane tanks. The architecture is open-air, with lines blurred between indoors and out.
This stone house vacation rental is adequately called Tranquility and just a stroll away from the private beach, on a footpath shaded by the tropical forest.

For more information and a little bit of history about the Moonhole community, read on.
Moonhole derives its name from a massive arch formed in volcanic substrate through which the setting moon is sometimes visible.
Moonhole began in the 1960s when American photographer and conservationist Tom Johnston and his wife bought the land with plans of building a few modest, low-impact dwellings. These were the original stone houses near the arch. However, the rock falls proved too dangerous for continued occupation. Now they are just left to decay.
