Overview

About the property

Actually, The Ocean Is "in" Every Room Of This 3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Home.

RELAXING out of this world living. You can't escape the natural beauty that is this ocean front home, and you won't want to. The house sleeps 6 very comfortably, but can accommodate smaller groups as well. Relax on the open balcony, read a book in the shaded comfort of the lower patio, nap in the hammock. The sounds, smells and sights of the Caribbean will be your constant companion. Get Away! to this luxurious and comfortable retreat.

Casa Belle Vue is picture and private perfect for 3 couples. Or a great family retreat. Mom and Dad entertain the whole family upstairs with the large living space, gourmet kitchen and 500 sq. foot coral tiled balcony overlooking the ocean. But then your teenage kids can retire to their own "their space" downstairs letting Mom and Dad enjoy their own private time upstairs. A vacation within a vacation!

About Luke

A Canadian who has travelled and lived around the world. Fell in love with Vieques and the Viequense people on his first visit there in 2003. Frequently use the house ourselves to relax, unwind and enjoy life. My teenage college-aged daughter loves being here and bringing her friends too!

Luke purchased this house in 2005

Why Luke chose Vieques Island

Bought the land in 2005 from the Editor of Architectural Digest who was going to build a waterfront studio on the land for her husband. Before buying the property, we sat on cinder blocks and had a bottle of champagne watching a beautiful sunset over the ocean - that convinced us to buy - as we could imagine doing the same on our future balcone. Took almost 5 years to design and build the property. We use it frequently ourselves. Completely unwinding on vacation in Vieques only takes hours! Come share our love for Casa Belle Vue and Vieques!

What makes this house unique

Some people buy wave machines to help them sleep. Casa Belle Vue is a million times better than a wave machine. The house and the ocean soothes your soul. Seconds to walk steps down to the water, a 3 minute walk to a local beach with a coral reef for snorkeling and a ten minute drive to the many Caribbean beaches in the National Wildlife Refuge. Vieques is what the Caribbean was like 50 years ago - a passage back in time - but with enough modern amenities (and no traffic lights).

Beautiful Place

  • 4 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay in Vieques. Susan was so helpful with anything that we needed. The house is beautiful and has most everything one needs to have a great beach vacation. The master bedroom has a gorgeous view, but no blinds, so if your vacation includes sleeping late that might be an issue. Otherwise it is a relaxing spot to enjoy the amazing beaches.

Owner's Response: Thanks Robin. I'm glad you enjoyed CBV and Vieques. Vieques is truly a piece of paradise!!! I understand your comments about not having curtains in the master bedroom and apologies if that distracted from your stay. It is by design. Perhaps it isn't for everyone, but I love not having curtains when I'm there and can wake up to the outstanding views of the tropical ocean from bed; the views that you can see in our posted pictures. Equally amazing are the views when there are night time lightning storms over the ocean! I've talked with our many regular repeat guests, many who have become personal friends, who also love the absence of curtains. They have their total privacy in the bedroom because of the house's location but still have the views. We put curtains in the lower landings bedrooms only to provide privacy that can be needed downstairs as your fellow guests/family members leave or return to the house.

This house was beautiful. Everything you would need is in the house.

  • 5 of 5

Susan and Luke were so helpful as we planned this trip. Susan met us at the car rental and led us to the house. Showed us around gave great tips as to where to buy food and when to shop at which store. Even left us a little welcome treat, which we enjoyed immensely. This house was pretty easy to access from town. We walked to town several times for breakfast, shopping and night life.

Susan was absolutely awesome in welcoming us to our home for a week. The house had everything we needed to stay in, cook meals and enjoy. The view of the ocean was spectacular. Definitely would recommend anyone who is looking for a reasonable place to stay with amazing views to check out this house. Thank you Susan, it was a pleasure and maybe we'll see you next year!!

Absolutely amazing! Words cannot express the beauty of the island and the home.

  • 5 of 5

This was my wife's and mine 2nd trip to the island and we absolutely love it. We brought our kids this time 23, 21 and 17. They fell in love as well. The house was absolutely perfect, as well as Susan, the property manager. She was amazing and was available for questions or anything we needed. The house was perfectly located and had everything you needed. We will definitely be back. It was an amazing trip and the perfect house.

My Vieques Go-To

  • 5 of 5

I was able to rent out Case Belle Vue once again for my third time in Vieques, and once again everything was perfect! Coming from snowy and cold Montreal, it was a nice change to not only be in a warm climate but have the ocean right outside our door!

We spent most of our time at the beaches, but when we were at the house everything was great! The kitchen is so well-equipped that we were able to make a nice meal one night instead of going into town / Esperanza for food!

in the laundry room, Luke has everything you could possibly need for the beach. The beach chairs are extremely comfy and clean. On our last day, we even found two hot pink floats, which we lounged on in the water at Sun Bay!

Next time I go back to Vieques, I will definitely book Casa Belle Vue again!

Located in a quiet residential neighborhood on the oceanfront, in close walking distance to town, shops, restaurants and bars. Adjacent to small beaches and snorkeling reefs, although the truly spectacular Caribbean beaches are a 10 minute drive away in the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge.
