Our mission

Summer squall

We are dedicated to conserving the unique architecture, flora, fauna and aquatic life on the western tip of Bequia.  There are no roads here, only stone paths. 

We collect our water from the clouds. Our houses rely on the sun and the wind for power and on the trade winds for cooling.

Our Conservation Trust is a member of the SVG National Trust. We are seeking to declare the waters surrounding Moonhole a marine sanctuary.

Our founder entrusted the preservation of Moonhole to several of his close friends, who remain devoted to preserving  Moonhole's natural beauty. 

Our history

Original Moonhole House

Original Moonhole House

Tom and Gladdie Johnston started Moonhole Company Limited in the 1960s. They acquired the entire western tip of Bequia and built their home under the enormous rock arch known as "Moonhole."  Working side by side with carpenters and masons from nearby Paget Farm, they created an architectural wonder, surrounded by the sea.  During the ensuing years, Tom and his crew designed houses for other intrepid individuals with whom he and Gladdie shared their private paradise.  As time went on, they built an office, commissary, living quarters for the growing staff, and a Gallery where homeowners and friends congregated for lunch each Sunday.  Today the original Moonhole house may only be viewed from the sea and there are no public tours.
