The monumental Khow-Gaphey House soars high over the sea on a promontory that towers above the surf below. This house contains four large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, and sleeps eight. The name of the house means "moving wind" in the language of the Canela Indians in Venezuela.
From its vast main deck you can see the sun set over the West Cays , look down into the original Moonhole house and the turquoise reefs in the Bight, and gaze at the verdant mountains of St. Vincent in the distance. Ship's Stern, where cannons once guarded Bequia's harbor, stands tall across the Bight, a craggy sentinel that dwarfs passing yachts. From far below the sound of the surf crashing on the rocks resounds like distant cannons. At one end of the vast main deck a curved whale-rib bar beckons the thirsty traveler. One level above is the wood-floored dining room that seats comfortably seats 12. The upstairs guest room adjoins the dining room.
Down below the main deck are the master bedroom and two other bedrooms decorated with colorful tropical fabrics and natural wood furniture, and a large studio facing the sea.
The fully-equipped kitchen has two stoves, a large food preparation area, and a refrigerator/freezer.
