Exactly where is Moonrise?

Joe Ryan - Friday, January 22, 2016

Moonrise is a twenty minute taxi ride from the ferry terminal in the harbor, and a five-minute ride from the airport. A private community encompassing one end of the island, it is comfortably secluded, with houses built into a steep, rocky ridge, open to the elements and to spectacular views. The refrigerators, stoves and irons are powered by propane gas, while solar panels generate power for the lighting and charging of portable devices. Internet is available at the harbor, and WiFi is available at the Moonhole office.


Moonrise is about 160 feet above sea level, high enough to catch the trade winds, keep the temperature pleasant and refreshing even during the summer months and minimize the presence of insects. Visitors arrive at the Moonhole gates by taxi, and from there reach the house via a network of stone paths that connect the community. Our staff carry up baggage and all supplies for the house.
