In the early 1960's, American expat Tom Johnston fell in love with the laid back pace of Bequia. He soon began to work on his legacy, Moonhole, an eclectic group of houses near secluded Moonhole Beach, on the island's Southwestern tip. Now you can rent his two bedroom stone and timber cottage with a whalebone chair and a four poster king size bed made of blue mahoe wood (both bedrooms are ensuite). Take in ocean vistas with great patios or from your bedroom, which has side by side picture windows that look out on neighbouring islands.
With dramatic cliffs dropping off into the Caribbean ocean on one side and the secluded Moonhole Beach on the other, Burke House is at an amazing location. It is ideally situated on the crest of a hill on this private peninsula to provide views of beaches, islands and tropical flora. This fabulous Bequia villa rental is directly above some of the best dive sites on Bequia with magnificent underwater reefs and tropical aquatic life.
Tranquil and blissfully private
With Burke House you can escape the hustle and bustle of every day life, as you are in a lovely secluded environment. Those that stay here are also a short walk from the white sandy Moonhole Beach - fantastic for swimming. You can enjoy stunning views, complete privacy, open and airy rooms and eco friendly solar power.
Beautiful outside area
This villa has a lovely outside dining area with a shaded table, and there is also plenty of seating where you can appreciate your surroundings in the cool breeze . . . You also have the added bonus of a large hammock, the perfect place to watch the fabulous Bequia sunset! There are also great areas of the outside area where you can sit and soak up the sunshine.
Lovely living area
Burke House has a lovely and cool living area that is simple, comfortable and calming, again due to the gorgeous surroundings. There are huge double doors that open out onto yet more breathtaking sea views.
Burke House is an ideal Bequia villa rental for 4 people, or can also be rented as a luxurious villa for 2. There are 2 large, airy bedrooms, each with their own private bathroom.
Luxuries to be enjoyed at Burke House
Maid service is included, as is your own private cook to provide local specialties, so relax and be spoiled! This rental really is a wonderful place to spend your holiday in Bequia.
Recommended for Wedding Groups
Burke House works well for large groups visiting Bequia for a wedding or family or friends reunion, especially when linked with other villas that are very close by, including Tranquility & Moonrise. Contact the Team at Grenadine Island Villas for assistance with planning your groups accommodation.
There is an abundance of wildlife here: Land and Sea Birds, Hawksbill and Green Turtles, Fruit Bats, Iguanas, Lizards, Manicou (a nocturnal marsupial),Tree Frogs ("Peepers"), Mollusks, Crustaceans, and a vast array of Insects. Do not disturb bird nests of any kind; they are often encountered "inside" the houses...they live here! Flocks of Carib Grackles often visit during mealtimes, entertaining with their antics and distinctive call of "Bequia Sweet, Sweet!". They are very bold and will snatch food scraps directly from plates, forks and hands! We often see Antillean Crested Hummingbirds, Bananaquit, Egret, Blue Heron, Ground Dove, Brown Booby, the Magnificent Frigate Bird, and many others including the ubiquitous Laughing Gull and Tropic Bird.Read more
