Overview

About the property

Vieques, Bravos de Boston, Hilltop views of the Island, sleeps 6

Located in the popular Bravos de Boston neighborhood, The ocean view is spectacular from this previous marine artist's 3.5 bedroom, 3 bath home, overlooking the harbor of Isabel II, and across to the main island of Puerto Rico and the islands of St Thomas and Culebra.

Sit on the open terrace in the morning and watch the fishing boats and ferries come and go, or catch an amazing sunset in the evening. Listen to the sound of the ocean and the coquis(and the occasional rooster). Enjoy the natural setting and private location. Banana plants, Lime bushes, Papaya trees and Bamboo next to the deck on the property.

On the Main Upper level and including the main living spaces, there is a kitchen and a master bedroom with a king bed and bathroom. Past the kitchen on the Main Upper Level are 2 smaller bedrooms, one with twin beds and the other a single twin (suitable mostly for children)that share a bathroom with washer/dryer.

On the lower level, with a separate entrance, is a large bedroom with queen bed and en suite bath.

The home is perfect for an extended family with children, or two couples who like having their own suites. The kitchen is amply stocked, and we have contracted some recent upgrades to add to the comfort of your stay. Flat Screen Satellite TV, free wifi, new deck furniture to name a few, new windows and sliding doors, among other things!

It can fit up to 7 total with children. The 2 smaller bedrooms with 3 beds in the back, being suitable for children. We do not recommend more then 4 adults in the home to stay comfortably.

Getting together with family on the terrace, cooking a gourmet meal and watching the ferry come in and the sun go down....picking bananas, or papayas in the yard..

Great place, great service!

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely stay here again. It had all the amenities we needed for two adults and four kids. Lots of space, beach towels, and beautiful views. Kikito was a lifesaver-- our car rental company did not have car at airport as planned and even when Kikito drove us to their office they were not ready for us. He was so patient and made sure we had everything we needed - and then left us to enjoy our time.

Be forewarned if you sleep downstairs you have a morning wake up each day to chickens-- part of the charm of this place.

Pictures of the property are underwealming compared to the real thing! This was the 7 nth visit to the island and the best time yet. This was in part due to the comfy house affording us fantastic privacy . No problems with anything there . Kikito was the consummate property manager! 👍🏼

Owner's Response: Thanks Bob and Charlene very much for your review. We completely agree that the pictures do very little justice to our island home and the drop dead views from Alma Vista's patio. We have decided to get a pro in to capture the true ambience in photos!!!

Best View

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Kikito and followed him to the house. I had been to Vieques 4 other times. The view from Alma Vista literally takes your breath away. Nothing but water, the ferry and Puerto Rico in the background. The house had everything we needed for a perfect week. We ate out 1/2 the time. Coqui Fire is still my favorite. We also enjoyed fish tacos and rum punches at Bananas. Sunset cocktails at Al's Mar Azul on the deck or at Alma Vista were enjoyed daily. We fed the iguanas at Mamasonga's from our salads.

The beaches are perfect for walking, especially Playa Grande. We snorkeled at blue, green and red beaches. You will need to bring your own equipment or rent from Black Beards. The horses came and mowed the grass several times and the neighbor's dog visited daily. Coqui frogs seemed so loud at first! I miss them now. Please rent a car! The hill to the house is steep, and there are so many beautiful beaches to visit. We plan on coming back next year to Alma Vista.

what a great house

  • 5 of 5

We arrived, were met by Kikito, and drove to the house in our rental car. He responded quickly to any concerns we had.The view is magnificent. The house was perfect for us, and would have been great for 2 couples also. We snorkeled every day with our own gear at either green, blue or red beach and saw a meriad of fish. The water temp was refreshing and the temp outdoors was 86 every day. We ate at Coqui fire twice and had quite a few cocktails at Al's Mar Azul as it was just down the hill. The Sombero has great wine selection. We enjoyed fish tacos and rum bunches at Bananas after our morning swims.You will need a car unless you are used to walking up steep hills. There are horses that come to mow the lawn and a very friendly neighbor's dog that made himself at home on the porch. We will return next year to this house. I have been to Vieques several times and Casa Alma Vista is the best!
