About the property

Panoramic Caribean and Bay Views and Gentle Trade Winds await. Sleeps 10-12.

Paradise unfolds... Fragrant flowers, tropical fruit and acres of lawn make up the surroundings at Villa Vista Linda. The driveway is lined with hibiscus shrubs, bougainvillea, oleanders, fragrant plumeria trees and other lush, tropical flowering plants and trees. The scent of gardenias and the beauty of orchids abound. You have arrived at Vista Linda.

Located in Pilon, in west-central Vieques, this gated private estate offers spectacular views of the southern coast of the island towards the Caribbean Sea. Well worth its name...Vista Linda! (Beautiful View).

Enjoy a peaceful, private vacation experience in a style of graceful tropical elegance. Within the six-acre estate is the Villa proper. The upper floor houses the main living areas with its 20-foot high ceilings and cooling ocean breezes. Venture out into the veranda and take in the gorgeous view. Festive dinners for up to 12 people can be held at the long French Country dining table. And afterwards, settle in for an after dinner drinks or coffee in one of the cozy sitting areas.

The lower level or Terraza offers more possibilities. Bright, open and airy, the arched columns and filigreed ironwork let fresh breezes blow through for true alfresco living. Lounge with a cool drink from the Coqui Cabana Bar or enjoy lunch or a sunset dinner from within the Terraza or Poolside.

The crown jewel of the estate is the gorgeous pool with its spectacular unobstructed and expansive views of the southern coast including Mt. Pirata - the highest peak on the island.

Set apart from the villa and adjoining the terraza and pool is the Casita, a charming small house with its own living room, kitchen/dining area and beautifully appointed bath.

Among the available sleeping accommodations are the master bedroom and 3 guestrooms in the Villa, and a private suite in the Casita.

The villa's spacious master bedroom combines a feeling of luxury with a sense of the tropics. Tall, richly finished teakwood doors and antique wood furnishings add to the effect. Cooling sea breezes can be enjoyed during any season and guests can sleep in air conditioned comfort if desired.

A 7 foot round tub is the centerpiece of the master bathroom, perfect for the ultimate bubble bath! As you lay there relaxing, you can gaze out through the wall of glass louvered windows at the lush green forest beyond. Also featured are dual sinks, a glass stand-up shower, and a bidet.

The Villa features three more bedrooms in addition to the Master bedroom. Two bedrooms are at the opposite end of the villa across the great room. The first offers a queen bed and the second has two full-size beds. Each bedroom has ample closet space and together the rooms share a large and well appointed bathroom between them. The third bedroom is located on the first floor of the Villa and has a queen sized bed, it's own entrance and private bath.

The Casita bedroom features a queen bed and and a beautifully appointed bathroom. There is a daybed in the living room which will sleep one adult or two children quite comfortably.

Vista Linda is the perfect choice for your Caribbean getaway, a quiet vacation retreat, family reunions or special gathering of friends.

You have a choice of booking 3-bedrooms (Main House), 4-bedrooms (Main House plus the Coqui Suite) or 5 bedrooms (the entire property; Main House plus the Coqui Suite plus the Casita). Including the Casita, Vista Linda provides 10,00 Square feet of living space under roof.

Wedding Fun

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Vieques for my daughter's wedding and had a group of 11 at Vista Linda. We had more than enough room for everyone to spread out, and there were also several areas where all could gather. The home and the property were magnificent! Very grand with expansive rooms and gathering spaces and high ceilings, but also very relaxing and comfortable. The pool is gorgeous, and everyone was highly impressed with Vista Linda. Karen welcomed us to the home and pointed out the many amenities. She made pus feel right at home! We hope for an excuse to go back soon!

Very spacious and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time on the island of Vieques so I didn’t know what to expect especially post Hurriane damage but Karen and the house exceeded our expectations. We had a group of 9 family members with 6 being older teenagers so the pool and pool table was a complete hit with them. There were some issues with things not working but Karen was honest about the things that needed to be fixed and we adjusted because everything else was so wonderful. The house is so spacious that everyone had their privacy and when we wanted to gather to have game night, we had plenty of room downstairs by the pool to play Musical Chairs, Simon Says and the Thinking Game. We had to use our imagination for game night. Karen met us at the rental car place to show us back to the house. She is the best!! She answered so quickly and gave us the answers about the house and island. I have rented many times and had great house managers but she was by far the best! We will be back for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review! We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Vista Linda! The first floor area is really excellent for families to gather and spend time together- that's how our family uses the space as well! The pool table, the pool and the Coqui bar are always a hit! Karen really is the best, and most accommodating House Manager, and we're lucky to have her on our team. Thanks for choosing Vista Linda, and we look forward to welcoming you back to VVL again next time!

Amazing post Hurricane Maria experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 stay here and I cannot recommend it enough. Vieques, post Hurricane Maria, is a different world from what we are used to (but amazing all the same). Every single person in our group could not stop talking about the preparation that went into making our stay an A+. We booked before the power returned to the property and had a backup plan for power. But luckily the power returned 5 weeks before our stay. The view is amazing. The house was clean, bright, open, and uplifting. The kitchen is perfectly stocked for 12-14 people. The breeze through the living space will make not want to go to the beach. The open floor plan, balcony, and downstairs entertaining area are perfect for inviting a new friend or 3 back from the beach (the pool and tiki bar made them not want to go back to their hotel). We were expecting a much more rustic experience and our experience was perfect. We will be back very soon with our whole family. The bungalo/casita, which is separate from the main house, is also perfect for a quieter experience. We cannot wait to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, David! It's wonderful to hear that you and your group enjoyed your post Hurricane Maria Vieques vacation! I know our House Manager and her crew will be pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay- they work hard to make sure each group has a wonderful Vista Linda experience! I'm glad you were able to get some good use out of the tiki bar and the pool, those are some of my favorite spots too! Thanks for staying at Vista Linda, we look forward to having you stay again!

Most relaxing trip ever!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! When pulling into the grounds of Vista villa, the size and grandeur was unparalleled. I heard it before vacationing at Vista, but the pictures just don't do it justice. The details at the house were incredible; from the murals painted on the walls to the size of rooms.

By far, this was the most relaxing vacation I have ever taken! In the mornings, I had a blast just walking around the perimeter, looking for coconuts that had fallen off of the many palm trees, and attempting to help a few others fall down :-) The views around the grounds were breath taking, from seeing the different types of trees and flowers on the grounds, to the backdrop of the Caribbean Sea.

Each day we were in Vieques, there was always something to do. One night, we went on a tour of Bio Bay, followed by the night life of Esperanaza. Exploring the beaches during the day made us feel like this place was a hidden gem. Each beach was more beautiful then the next! One of the coolest things about these beaches were, you felt like you had the beach all to yourself. Some of the beaches only had a handful of people on a mile long strip of sand (there were more wild horses taking advantage of this paradise, then people at times). Another day we chartered a wooden pre-WW2 sailboat, went for a sail and did a little snorkeling on a reef. Going to the local fish mart and waiting for the fisherman to get back in with the fresh catch of the day, had us appreciating the lobster we had that night.

On most vacations, I have the erg to want to go home towards the end, but at Vista Villa I felt like I was home. I cant wait to go back and decompress!

Vieques and Vista Linda

  • 5 of 5

Vista Linda was a wonderful home base for our "large family" visit to Vieques. The house is very spacious, the pool is large and inviting, the grounds are lovely (fruit on many of the trees found on the grounds) and the main kitchen (one of three) is equipped better than most any other home we have rented. There is a pool table that was enjoyed in evening hours downstairs not far from a tiki bar room (ice maker, mixer, beer fridge), chairs/umbrellas are available for use on the beaches, etc. Karen Murphy does an excellent job as manager, communicated well and often before, during and after our stay. Karen responds very promptly to any communication and is anxious for guests to really enjoy their stay. This was one trip we really did not want to end... but we can look forward to a return. Photos taken of the house do not really do it justice, so anticipate that it is even more spectacular in person. A/C is available in the rooms but was not really needed during our stay as many rooms have ceiling fans and great breezes prevail and flow through the house given its location up on a hill.

Vieques is a great little island to visit and explore, and we like to explore. We went everywhere, had no problems with communication or with any of the people. All were friendly, willing to help and provide some history of the island or their own story... met a number of other visitors to the island, as well... all who seemed to enjoy the island as much as we did.

Owner's Response: Hola! Thank you for your glowing and detailed review, it's so nice to hear that you and your family loved Vista Linda as much as I do! I too find the ceiling fans to be sufficient, and hardly use the air conditioning when I'm there. The warm Caribbean breezes blowing through the large open windows, is one of my favorite things about the house. I'm also glad you found the kitchen to be well appointed, as we try to make sure Vista Linda has all the comforts of home. I hope you will think about visiting Vieques again, and please keep us in mind if you do. Thank you! Hasta Pronto, Megan

Fantastic Family & Friends Features

  • 5 of 5

First time on Vieques was fantastic. Actually already scheduled another trip for March. Vista Linda is in a great secluded location on the island to get from one side to the other. House worked out very well for our group of family and friends. Vista Linda has everything we needed to relax and have fun. Karen (house manager) was very knowledgeable about the property and the island. We will return to Vista Linda again in the future.
