About the property

Villa - 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

The Reefhouse is the perfect peaceful Caribbean island getaway. Overlooking the ocean, the Reefhouse has panoramic views and is surrounded by tropical gardens. Enjoy sitting on the patio with the sound of the surf and the rustling palm trees, while watching the local fisherman and sailboats. There is plenty of seating for al fresco dining. And in the evening you can enjoy the spectacular sunsets in perfect tropical weather, any month of the year.

The Reefhouse is decorated in casual Caribbean style. The kitchen is fully equipped. Good beds with high thread count 100% cotton linens. The living room has a TV, lots of games and a well stocked library. With hairdryer, beach towels, beach chairs and toys, sun hats, coolers and beach bags, all you need to bring is yourself and your friends and family! Wifi on the deck with the sound of the waves.

The ocean is just below the house across a small shore road. An excellent swimming and snorkeling beach is just a few minutes walk away. Vieques has, according to Forbes Magazine, 'some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean'.

In Vieques there are no traffic lights and no casinos, but there are friendly people and an abundance of great restaurants. It is home to one of the best bioluminescent bays in the world.

Vieques is a small US owned island between Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Vieques is affordable and easy to get to by a 20 minute plane ride from San Juan, Puerto Rico or by 1 1/2 hour ferry ride from Fajardo, Puerto Rico. We can help with any travel arrangements if you would like, and we have a property manager who will meet you at the airport or ferry and ensure your stay is problem free.

About Joshua Ewing

We're two families who own the house together, and when we're not there are happy to have others enjoy Vieques at our home away from home.

Joshua Ewing purchased this villa in 2003

What makes this villa unique

So close to the turquoise water with the constant sound of the waves. Watching the pelicans fly along the curl of the waves, the fishermen out in early morning, the frigate birds soaring, the ferries coming and going. Iguanas sunbathing on a tree above the water.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hola! Thanks so much for this fabulous house. We enjoyed everything about Vieques – surf just out the door, snorkeling in Green Beach, kayaking near Esperanza, lush drives on remote roads and all the horses. It was perfect.

Great spot with amazing water view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (three college-age kids) was very comfortable at Reef House. Continuous ocean breezes and the unbroken ocean view distinguish this property, which is very private (set above and back from the street) -- yet feeling a part of the local vibe, with occasional pedestrians and horseback riders (or just horses!) passing by but very little vehicular traffic. We rented a Jeep and enjoyed Isabel II (a minute down the road) and Esperanza, (15 minutes) along with our favorite beaches (there are so many to choose from!) all within an easy and scenic drive. It was great to discover Vieques with Reef House as home base.

The view and nights on the veranda make it all worth it!

  • 4 of 5

We must admit that we had to adjust our expectations upon arrival. The house was smaller and bit more "rustic" than what we had expected. But we soon learned that was the case with many things on this beautiful island. And as far as homes on this island go, The Reef House offers a spectacular view, great location and mid-to-higher tier of accommodation relative to other places on the island.

Overall, the home is a perfect place to enjoy your adventures on Vieques. The A/C in the bedroom is a life-saver (we stayed in July/August). It did take some adjusting to get used to the non-AC throughout the remainder of the home. The verandah/outdoor patio was perfectly appointed with comfortable chairs and two large tables that are great for outdoor dining. The awning is a nice touch to get out of the heat. The bugs of course are an issue but this is the case everyone on the island. We appreciated the basket of bug spray provided and brought some of our own.

The kitchen had everything we needed in the way of dishes, serving platters, tupperware and more. The fridge ran a little warm (didn't seal well) and the dishwasher didn't work every time, but we were fine with washing our own dishes. We appreciated the condiments and seasonings left behind by previous renters. We made it work!

The beds were super comfy and clean. We all had a great-night's sleep the whole week there. The bathrooms were fine (the big shower in the master is super convenient), but drainage in the guest shower was a small issue. The washer and dryer worked great and are a huge plus when washing beach towels and clothes.

We never really used the living area - mostly because we enjoyed the outside. The WiFi worked most of the time (a few times we had to reset it) but the satellite TV never worked (though that might have been a blessing in disguise). Lots of great books and info for visitors to use.

We also appreciated the beach chairs, umbrella and gear left behind. Perfect for throwing in a Jeep and hitting the beaches all day. Though larger groups may want to bring/buy/rent their own chairs (they only had 2 non-broken chairs), floats and snorkeling gear. And it may be worth buying your own cooler, too.

For the price and the location, we would recommend The Reef House to couples and older families traveling to Vieques.

Second stay just as nice as the first!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a stay at the Reef House, we were there from March 29 - April 8, 2016. This was our 6th visit to Vieques and our 2nd stay at the Reef House. When it's just my husband and I, we stay at a smaller villa. This time my sister and her husband we able to join us for part of the vacation.

The location is perfect, the porch and deck become part of the living space. We're in our early 60's and walked to town almost daily. I'm guessing it's about a 10 minute walk so didn’t need to use a car for errand running. We had a family of 3 horses walking past a few times daily, that's always fun to see.

The canopy was added since our last stay - a wonderful addition! This makes the porch usable all day, even mid-afternoon when it can be a bit on the warm side.

I want to address a problem that a previous guest had with the refrigerator. We didn't have any problems, no need to wipe up any condensation at all. My guess is that the door wasn't closing all the way. You just have to give it an extra push, and check to make sure it's closed. There is a plastic container on the top shelf in the back that was collecting drops of water from the freezer, not an issue at all. In the 10 days that we were there, we only had to empty it once. Food was kept cold and ice cream frozen.

The interior was super clean, no dust bunnies under beds. Beds are comfortable; linens are like we have at home and thick towels. Kitchen well stocked for cooking.

Tip on which bedroom to use. The bedroom that has the best cool breeze is actually the one on the right and not the master. It does have AC, but wasn't needed. The breeze off the ocean has a clear channel down that side of the house. It was noticeably cooler :)

A basket of left over bug repellent and sun screen from previous guest was nice, we used some, and left what we had brought. Same with condiments and food staples. Suggest that you check and see what is in the cupboards and refrigerator before heading off to the store. Side note: there are shopping bags for guest to use since the grocery stores don't use plastic bags anymore.

We'd not hesitate to stay here again and highly recommend it.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Lovely location with gorgeous ocean views. The patio overlooking the ocean is perfectly beautiful and a great spot for meals accompanied by the sound of the surf. Beaches within walking distance are great for beach combing. The house has super comfortable beds and an impressive library. There are all kinds of games in the closet.
