Moonrise is a beautiful eco friendly villa, just a short stroll away from its own private beach. At this wonderful location, guests will find a true escape from the business of everyday life, in a tranquil, private environment. Situated on the Moonhole peninsula, the views from this Bequia villa rental are fantastic, overlooking the turquoise ocean, and you can also see St Vincent.
An amazing experience
A stay in Moonrise is a really wonderful experience, ideal for honeymooners, and those seeking to really relax. The property has a unique 'free form' open plan design, attracting reviews in the ecological/architectural press. No electricity adds to this special atmosphere, and the natural stone throughout makes this a really beautiful property. Maid service is included with this villa, as is your own personal cook, so you really can sit back, relax and truly unwind throughout your stay in Bequia.
The living area in this Bequia vacation base is simple and comfortable, and you can really appreciate the beauty of Moonrise in this space. Opening up onto the outside area, the atmosphere is tranquil and the whole area feels spacious and calm.
3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
Moonrise has 3 bedrooms, all twins, that can double up into king size beds. These rooms are cool and comfortable - really beautiful, natural spaces in which to sleep. There are also stone archways that show off the wonderful views, and let in the ocean breeze. What better than to wake up in this lovely environment, and look out first thing onto the Caribbean Sea?
Relaxed dining area
The dining area is fantastically designed - a long, natural stone bench, with wooden table top and chairs. This is a great place to enjoy your meals, with plenty of space, and a lovely cooling wind coming in from outside.
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.
There are plenty of books to read at Moonrise, and the perfect place to read is outside on the comfortable seating, overlooking Bequia and St Vincent. There is beautiful greenery to frame your view, and this whole area is really special. 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!
Please note a 100USD provisioning fee.

We had a GREAT time at Moonhole. It was unbelievably gorgeous and in a very natural setting. The service was top notch and professional. We loved walking around in our bare feet and the floor (concrete) was very clean at all times. We liked the maid service and their cooking the best. After days diving, it was pleasant to arrive home to home-cooked meals. The least? Well, it is a bit of a hike to the home from the drop-off point. Their were helpers to carry our luggage which was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this place and know that not having electricity was really not an issue since lamps were lit for us every night and propane for refrigeration, etc. Go and enjoy your stay and thank you for such a wonderful vacation in Bequia!!!
