Other Vieques Island Properties house description

Adjacent to the Nature Reserve, on a hilltop in Barrio Monte Carmelo; sleeps up to 6 with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2 large wrap-around terraces with an outdoor dining area and built-in gas grill. Our beautiful, architecturally-designed home offers incredible views in all directions with breezes to match. Wake up in the glorious morning to unobstructed views of the Reserve and the island of Culebra, and even St. John and St. Croix on a clear day, or have a cocktail on the front balcony while you watch the lights of Vieques and main-island Puerto Rico twinkle in the distance. The countryside location is in the center of the island so you can be just about anywhere in 5-20 minutes — from the island's best beaches to restaurants and shopping. Our Viequense neighbors are friendly and respond in kind to a smile and a wave. Friendly dogs, wandering chickens and free-roaming horses are all a part of day-to-day life in Monte Carmelo, so if an insulated resort-like experience is what you're looking for, then our house is not for you. But if you are looking to experience real-life Vieques in the comfort of a safe and stylish house, then we have no doubt you will love it here. Free wifi and hard-wired computer access. In high season, if only the master bedroom is rented with the house, the per-night rate is reduced to $200 from $220 for all 3 bedrooms. In lo-season it is $175 per night for 1-3 bedrooms. Note there is always only 1 party in the house at a time.

          Location

          Car: Necessary

          Vieques is a small, unspoiled island 7 miles east and a world away from the main island of Puerto Rico. Our neighborhood, Barrio Monte Carmelo, is a rustic, local, hilltop community centrally located between the Island's best beaches and the towns of Esperanza and Isabel Segunda. In 10-20 minutes you'll be on the beach in the Nature Reserve or at one of the island's best restaurants. Our Viequense neighbors are friendly and respond in kind to a smile and a wave. Friendly pups, chickens and free-roaming horses are all a part of day-to-day life in Monte Carmelo, so if an insulated resort-like experience is what you're looking for, than our house is not for you. But if you are looking to experience real-life Vieques in the comfort of a safe and stylish house, than we have no doubt you will love it here. We especially love the house in the peaceful early-morning hours when the light is glorious and the birds are singing!

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2006

          About the owner: We are Jamie and Perri and we live in Brooklyn, NY when we're not in Vieques. Jamie has a wine shop and Perri is a graphic designer. We love Vieques and we can tell you all of our favorite not-to-be-missed places so you can enjoy it as much as we do!

          Why the Owner Chose Other Vieques Island Properties:
          We love our mountain-top location with it's constant breezes and and unstoppable views of the Nature Reserve, the distant islands, and Vieques itself. It's always comfortable, with no need for air conditioning, and when the mosquitoes are biting in town, the breezes keep them away on the hill. As a bonus, our house is located in the center of the island so it's equally convenient to get to just about anywhere you'll want to be.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          • unobstructed views of the Nature Reserve, distant islands, Vieques and Puerto RIco • constant breezes • Completely renovated, unique architectural design inspired by Spanish-Colonial detailing, featuring a plethora of traditionally-made tile and woodwork. • 2 large rear terraces, a front balcony, and a built-in outdoor gas grill • located in the center of the island making all destinations within 10-20 minutes
