Tom and Gladdie Johnston founded Moonhole Company in 1964. Working side by side with carpenters and masons from the nearby village of Paget Farm, Tom built the original house beneath the enormous natural arch known far and wide as 'Moonhole.'
Over the years Tom and his crew constructed 16 more houses with stones from the site, native hardwoods, and materials reclaimed from the sea. Trees flourish inside the houses. Flowering tropical plants abound.
In 2000 Tom turned over the preservation of Moonhole to to a conservation trust to preserve Moonhole's natural beauty. As a member of the National Trust and through our private foundation, Moonhole Friends, Inc., we actively support environmental, educational and cultural activities on Bequia
