Are you thinking of marrying on Bequia? We can help arrange a wedding to remember. Why not marry on the secluded Moonhole beach, just moments away from your private retreat.
This villa has a fantastic location, breathtaking views and is large enough to accommodate 4 couples comfortably. With large open arches and spacious living areas the villa was built without straight lines, rather gentle curves that complement the natural surroundings. Ecologically friendly, electricity and hot water are created from solar energy. Designed to be cooled by the tradewinds.
From the top down we have first the master bedroom. This has a king-size bed that looks out directly onto the ocean and dozens of islands. It has it's own private bathroom, satelite TV, plenty of closet space, a desk area and a huge tiled patio. This upper level is completely private from the main house and accessed by its own stairway the gate for which can be closed off from the rest of the house. The large patio looks down onto Moonhole beach and the pool area. It has a panaromic view from St. Vincent in the North to Union Island in the south (you can see Grenada on a clear day). Complete with hammock and outside table and seating this Master Bedroom level is comfortable and private.
The next level down has the kitchen, dining room, library, music room, utility room and a large comfortable lounge area. Again it has it's own tiled patio complete with outdoor seating. The kitchen is fully equipped, although the villa comes with your own private cook/housekeeper so you don't even need to venture into this area on your vacation!! This level leads off to the pool and sun terrace to the side.
The next level down features two en suite bedrooms. Each bedroom leads off to yet another large red tiled patio. This patio enjoys the same stunning views of Moonhole beach and the Caribbean Ocean with Grenadine islands in the distance.
The final level has just one en suite bedroom with a king-sized bed. This room has its own private terrace and balcony overlooking the Caribbean.
The pool is easily accessed from all rooms. The surrounding patio is comfortably furnished. Ideal for a couple of sundowners after a busy day of doing absolutely nothing!!

Beach & Garden
Tranquility was built to complement and integrate with the natural, tropical environment. Moonhole peninsular is maintained as a nature reserve. Tranquility Villa is part of this reserve and provides a low impact, eco friendly vacation experience. Electricity is from solar panels. Water is solar heated. The house was built from natural local materials in harmony with the environment.
The beach itself is also very quiet and secluded. You will probably be the only ones on the beach every day of your holiday. Reached by dusty track it is a hidden treasure on Bequia.
From is promonantry Tranquility overlooks more than 20 Grenadine islands from south east to south west and Saint Vincent to the north - the master bedroom in particular enjoys all these views through its beautifully structured arched openings.

Well we had the best time ever and loved Bequia everybody was so nice and Lucille was great. Would love to see you at some point Kirsty has offered supper at her flat for you Molly and me and we could have a chat. We think we will want to go back next year for New Year but Moonhole was wonderful but quite a long way from everything so I want a house ideally above Princess Margaret Beach if at all possible and again only four rooms but would love to meet you and just generally discuss. Not sure when you are going so let me know if you have a night in London or not.
Many many thanks for the best holiday!

Tranquility was absolutely magical! Lusan made us feel truly welcome, Sasha and Hyacinth looked after us brilliantly and Jed the parrot behaved impeccably. As a family we fell in love with the house -- the simplicity, the views, the cooling breeze and the always-deserted Moonhole Beach. Our boys (11 & 8) were in heaven -- swimming, fishing, iguana-hunting and exploring in total safety -- it was a though they were living in a Gerald Durrell novel for 3 weeks.
As for the island -- we totally loved it and, like many I am sure, hope that it manages to preserve its unique combination of unspoilt and friendly comfort. We loved some of the wildness on the East coast, made great friends in the Rasta market and spent most evenings watching the sun go down from Princess Margaret Beach as we sipped rum punches...thank you for everything. You played a major part in giving us a truly unforgettable and extremely special time in our lives.

We are now back from the sailing portion of the trip. Now back to work (reality?).
Our experience at the house in Bequia was absolutely fantastic! Doro is an integral part of the entire experience - she really is a treasure. The house and the entire environment at Moon Hole was a great match for our family - we really enjoy the isolation and the privacy.
We hope that the owners continue to rent this property - we would be very interested in returning next year (and that would be our first return visit to any one location in the past 5 years).
Thanks again for all your help in planning the visit
