About Joshua Ewing
Alma Vista is owned by a family from Canada and the US
Joshua Ewing purchased this House in 2009
Why Joshua Ewing chose Bravos de Boston
We had rented this lovely home for a number of years during our travels to Vieques. When the chance came to purchase it, we jumped at it for its unbeatable views!
What makes this House unique
Unparalleled 180' views. Private Setting. 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!
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! 👍🏼
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!!!
As advertised, great view , Kikito the property manager was truly a life saver.
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
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!
Perfect family vacation
Twice now I’ve stayed at Alma Vista with my family and friends. We all enjoyed this vacation rental enormously! The typically Caribbean style house is spacious, clean, comfortable, and just beautiful. You’ll find a well-organized kitchen, good laundry facilities, really comfortable beds and there’s even a fascinating assortment of good reading material. Best of all is the huge balcony with a panoramic view of the ocean through a flowering tropical mango grove. It’s breathtaking in the early morning light and perfect for the spectacular sunsets every evening. Alma Vista is right in the village of Isabella Segunda but surrounded by greenery we felt private and protected. The location is just right for easy walks to shops, restaurants and local beaches then it’s a quick drive to the spectacular big beaches on the other side of the island. The house manager, Kikito, knows everything you need to know or find in Vieques. He’s always available, helpful and very friendly. We loved everything about Alma Vista. I’m afraid it’s spoiled us for any other kind of vacation.
So glad you so enjoyed Alma Vista and Vieques. We're always happy to have repeat renters! We agree the view and the sunsets are spectacular. Thank you for taking the time to write us.
