The Moonhole House.
In the 1950s, Tom and Gladdie Johnston quit their jobs in the US and came to Bequia an island in the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The family that then owned the western tip of the island invited the Johnston's for a picnic and check out a massive rock arch known as the Moonhole. Tom instantly started dreaming of having a campsite below the arch to enjoy picnics. This dream slowly grew up to become a full blown functional house for the Johnston's to live in. Back then, the only road to reach the house was a rocky path along the sea. In his quest to not disturb nature in any way, Tom hand built his house with rocks, driftwood, shells and whalebones. No trees were cut in the making of his house, the tall trees that were in the property still exist and the building has gone on around these tree with them propping out of the living rooms, bedrooms and deck. Upon seeing and visiting the Johnston's new home in the Moonhole, many of his friends requested Tom to build house for them. Tom agreed and aimed to develop the Moonhole property as a 'People Preserve'. He decided to also build a gallery where all the residents could gather for meals on Sunday! Now, solar panels power most of the houses and rainwater is collected for all fresh water needs.
