Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in World - Moonhole Generation Gap House

Large living area, whalebone bar, interior gardens, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms

Designed for beachfront living, the Generation Gap House rises from the beach to the treetops. The house is built around a lush tropical garden. The main living area contains a whale rib bar, a large heart shaped dining table that seats 8, and another table overlooking the sea. A curved outdoor seating area overlooks the central garden. There are sun decks outside the main living room and adjoining each bedroom.

The windows and arches of the main living area frame a panoramic view of Petit Nevis, Isle a Quatre, Pigeon Island, Mustique, and the Southern Grenadines.

Massive tropical vines cascade over the stone walls that surround the tropical garden where young fruit trees and palms shoot up toward the sky. With three bedrooms on three different levels and more than 4,000 feet of living space, Generation Gap is one of the larger houses at Moonhole.

The Queen Bedroom has a queen bed, private bathroom with a fresh-water shower and an anteroom with a daybed that can accommodate a small child. The Tree-Top Bedroom has its own private deck, a king bed, and a private bathroom with a fresh-water shower. The Seaside Bedroom overlooks the Caribbean and has a king bed and private bathroom with a freshwater shower. The house is powered by a small solar system. The fully-equipped kitchen has a refrigerator-freezer and a stove and oven powered by propane. Our staff provides cooking and housekeeping services, which are included in the rent.

Relax on the decks or the chaises on the private Moonhole beach below.

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 all your meals, unless you tell them you really want to fend for yourself. We bring in most of our fresh produce from the 'mainland' - as we 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!
