Unplug and Indulge in the peaceful water and soft sand of your own beach. Marvel at the infinity of a star-washed sky. From our guests:'Nothing compared to Moonrise and its seclusion. You can literally walk around naked! The lot is gorgeous with tropical trees and flowers and plants. It is very private, a great place for relaxation, solitude, romance . . . you name it! We are so glad we chose Moonrise.' 'Moonrise For Romance was just what we needed.....and actually went way beyond our expectations'
'Our experience here was simply awesome! After researching several options, we landed at Moonrise. Thank you universe . . . thank you Marlee. How often can you find a place so far from home that is so comfortable that you are immediately at home? Wow, Wow, Wow. We felt like imperial guests at some one's home - not your typical rental house -- empty, barren, cold, this is paradise!
Personal Freedom Undisturbed Privacy: Our spirits have been nurtured completely. So peaceful, only the sounds of nature. This has not only been a life-changing experience, but one we will cherish in our hearts forever' The view every morning was spectacular!
You will love the sleeping accommodations! No curtains mar the waterfront views. The entire cottage and grounds are absolutely charming and romantic! The bathroom is a unique separate building -- very clean, very close, flush toilet . . . no problem. You will absolutely love the garden shower that is outside among the plants.'
Landscaping is very natural and beautiful attracting many wild birds. This is an adventure best suited to those who appreciate ecology and a simply elegant new age pioneer lifestyle experience. Solar electricity with abundant energy, charging laptops, cameras, etc, no problem. Time to leave the electronics in a bag and embrace the real culture of a wild island experience gently tamed by the conscious hands of the artist owner.
Open Style Living: The cottage was designed to open to the daily sunshine and breezes with very large screened windows. There is no air conditioning and for the months of August and September the cottage is not generally available for rent. The exception is if you are happy to have your cooling provided by fans and water immersion (my personal favorite). This is a very, very comfortable lifestyle for those wishing to decompress and become self aware and conscious of the cycle of life in harmony with nature. If you like 'glamping' this will exceed your expectations and become an unforgettable experience in the bosom of nature.
Nurture your spirit, commune with nature, reconnect with inner peace and the beauty that unfolds into your daily view. Leave your clothing and cares behind and find idle time on the private beach year round. Embrace the kiss of nature Wifi available. Moonrise is not air conditioned ( hate noisy generators and motors). Cooled with fans in summer and the prevailing south east breezes. Solar power supplies all comfort and convenience with minimum energy conservation! This cottage appreciated by guests comfortable with boating . Charter by Alburys Ferry 20 minute ride from Marsh Harbour. Lots more fun to rent a boat.
