Property description

Welcome to Villa Altamira! This is your private get-a-way in paradise. Situated on a large private lot with spectacular panoramic views of the ocean, gorgeous sunsets and the distant lights of Puerto Rico. Expansive panoramic ocean views surround you. On clear days you can see the Mainland, St. Thomas and Culebra. You can enjoy the whole house including several decks and outdoor areas for relaxing. The rooftop patio has lots of room to lay out or watch the twinkle of the harbor lights and mainland. The Villa is designed for three level living. Everyone will be able to find a quiet spot to relax and enjoy the view, read or sleep in their hammock outside. For the Winter 2014 Season we have continued to upgrade the Villa. We have just completed a full renovation of the ground floor with new walk-in shower, ceramic tile flooring and stone sink and vanity. Extensive landscaping completed over the last several years is now fully grown and lush. The entire grounds is now enveloped in beautiful tropical vegetation, fruits and flowers. The progress will continue in 2015.

The best about Altamira is the location. You are pretty much close to everything on the island. Walk to Isabella or take a short drive to the best beaches on the island. Want to hit the town no problem. Esperanza and the south side of the island are only a 20 minute drive. Have the best of it all including fun nightlife with lots of activities and restaurants as well as a private villa. Bananas, Lazy Jacks the Malecon not too far. Remember the island is not that big.

A fully private free-form pool with waterfall is great for cooling off. The newly resurfaced pool features accent lighting for lounging in the evenings. Enjoy the cool breeze-filled nights in the fully screened bedrooms. Newly added air conditioning in each bedroom will cool off those particularly hot days. Better yet spend the day and the beach and the afternoons by the pool. Explore the island then return to your home base Villa Altamira.

The Villa's floorplan is explained in detail on our web site It is a three level Caribbean style villa with a rooftop patio. The ground floor is a private en-suite style living space with its own entrance. Perfect for family or friends who prefer additional privacy. This level connects to the rest of the villa via outside steps.

The island of Vieques is for those who enjoy pristine uncrowded beaches still unspoiled by crowds of tourists, good local groceries, and stunning natural beauty. The world famous 'Bioluminescent Bay' is a popular nature attraction. Many local restaurants offer wonderful food and entertainment. Night lifers need not apply as there are no casinos or crowds here.

Villa Altamira's architecture is traditional Carribean. The property offers luscious caribbean landscaping and ten-foot high ceilings as well as beautiful Spanish ceramic tile floors. The open, airy feeling of the house is enhanced by the large living room, French doors and expansive 12 X 28 foot outdoor deck and tiered design.

What is best here is that you can enjoy the best of Spanish and Caribbean culture while still feeling safe that you are on US territory. Do not forget all Puerto Ricans are US citizens so no problems with visas, customs or monetary change.

JOhn and Karen


Greetings from San Marcos, Texas!
Hello Karen & John,
I just wanted to take a few minutes to say thank you for a wonderful location to have our family get together. The only complaint from all, was that time was too short. The layout of the Villa gave everyone 'their space ' and yet be together. Pineapple stole our grandson heart. He was missing his two cats at home in Madison, WI. Now, he wants to return to the Villa to visit his new best friend.
We will do this again and we will stay at the Villa. I organize trips for women and I think your place would be ideal.
Again, thank you for a wonderful experience, XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
