Enjoy magnificent views of the Grenadines and beautiful sunsets. Trade winds rock your hammock on the upper deck. Three bedrooms accommodate six guests.
Eclipse House sits 200’ above sea level atop the spine of of the island. Iguanas and sea birds visit the cascading lily ponds and grackles invade at breakfast time. Orchids cling to stones on the paths between the rooms. Flame trees, buenavista trees, bougainvillea, and frangipani bloom in alternate seasons.
A ten-minute walk from the Moonhole entrance along a winding stone path that hugs the south side of the island, Eclipse House offers privacy and magnificent views of the southern Grenadines, St. Vincent, and the uninhabited western tip of Bequia.
The main room and living area are built around a central column. The dining table seats 12, with a “throne” at the head. A large whale rib forms the bar.
The master bedroom looks out over a deep gorge to the sea below. In rough weather waves crashing into “blow-holes” at the water’s edge sound like distant cannon. The “Annex” – an anteroom that forms the entrance to this bedroom – has a protected seating area that can be used as a child’s bed.
The “Gum Tree” bedroom overlooks the islands to the south. Gigantic boulders form one wall along the walkway to the lily pond outside the door of the bedroom. Shaded by trees and open to the breezes on all sides, the bedroom is akin to a tree house.
The king bed in the “Cave” bedroom faces St. Vincent, whose distant lights flicker through the leaves like a diadem at night. Named for its cavernous entrance, this bedroom, like the other two, has its own separate bathroom with a view of the sea.
Eclipse House can comfortably accommodate six people. Because of its remoteness and altitude (200'), we recommend it only to those who feel fit enough to ascend the path.
The house is powered by a solar system. The fully-equipped kitchen has a propane stove and oven and a large refrigerator/freezer.
