Overview

About the property

Private villa. 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom with fabulous huge verandah

Gorgeous uninterrupted views, close to Sun Bay and the world famous bioluminescent bay. This is a family-friendly villa with a beautiful pool and landscaping. The Master bedroom opens onto the huge terrace (always with a gentle trade wind) and shares a 'Jack n Jill' bathroom with a double room. Two other bedrooms are singles, with two twin beds. Casa Jaloh accommodates 8 people.

The enormous covered verandah is perfect for chilling out and enjoying the panoramic views and breezes, and overlooks the pool and lovely grounds. It is the perfect place for an afternoon siesta or evening entertaining, accessed from the living room/kitchen area as well as the master bedroom. Stairs down to the garden and pool make a refreshing dip so easy.

The open plan of the living and dining area effortlessly flows out onto the verandah. The kitchen is well equipped and there is plenty of counter space for making delicious meals. The kitchen also has a lovely view across the Caribbean Sea!

Vieques is a special island with wonderful beaches, snorkelling, and the bioluminescent bay to explore. There are tons of great restaurants to choose from, and hundreds of acres of national preserve to visit. Truly a delightful and memorable place to holiday.

About Jill Pickering

Andrew and I have been living in Singapore for many years. We moved here in 2000 and brought up our three kids here. Its been such an interesting part of the world to live in. Andrew is from Rye NY and I come from Melbourne Australia.

Jill Pickering purchased this villa in 1998

Why Jill Pickering chose Vieques

We found Casa Jaloh (JALOH being an acronym from each of our names) when Andrew and I went to a conference in Old San Juan. We took the ferry over from Fajardo and discovered what a fascinating and funky little place Vieques is. We were fortunate enough to buy the property and did extensive remodelling and additions, the wonderful verandah and pool among them. We love how the view will never be built out as there is a swathe of State Land in front and how one can look 180 deg across the sea, with hardly a building in sight!

We have so enjoyed meeting some of the colourful people on the island and wish we were closer to Vieques to enable us to get there more often. The Viequense are so relaxed and friendly.

What makes this villa unique

Being up high on Monte Santo hill means that not only does one get fantastic views, but also a constant gentle breeze... so refreshing even on the hottest day. Thats why we added the huge verandah and I must say thats where we all chill out! Its certainly big enough for quiet reading at one end and family activities at the other!

Being so close to the bioluminescent bay (Mosquito Bay) is also wonderful. This is truly one of the most memorable things you will ever experience... swimming through water that lights up with billions of shining dinoflaggellites is a magical thing to do. One feels that one is swimming with the stars! Unforgettable!!

Sun Bay is also very close and one can bob around in the crystal clear tropical water for absolutely hours. So idyllic.

Perfect Location with the Best View on the Island

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to Vieques for over 30 years. We used to collectively own a home in Destino, and this was our second time renting on the island since that home was sold. I did not think our own home could be beat, but I was wrong. Casa Jolah was perfect. The location was great - very central with beaches, the grocery store, Esperanza or Isabella II, no more then a 10 minute drive away. The house itself was clean, well laid-out, with a good amount of space and a well-equip kitchen. In fact we thought the living space looked bigger in person then in the photos. BUT really what made the home was the veranda and the pool - we spent almost all of the time that we weren't sleeping or at the beach out there. It was cool, had a beautiful view, and we could watch the kids play in the pool or in the yard. David, the caretaker, was excellent - great communication, very helpful, and assisted with the car and baby equipment rentals. We can't say enough good things about this home - we are already counting down the days until we can return! Thank you!

Perfect place for our family.

  • 5 of 5

Large covered porch is great to just chill. The kitchen has almost everything you need and the grill is a big plus. The kids lived in the pool. The house was clean and conveniently located for easy access to the Caribbean beaches and the main town. This was actually our second time there and we will definitely return.

Dream Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay on this magical island. The location is great, right in the middle of the island so it's a short drive everywhere. The house comes equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay from beach chairs to a cooler. The pictures of the views truly speak for themselves! We will definitely be back!!

The perfect Caribbean stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this Villa on numerous occasions and it is the perfect vacation rental! It has stunning views of the sea, a great pool, and a terrific porch for spending cocktail hour and dinner. Also perfectly positioned to get to either side of the island for restaurants and bars.

You cannot go wrong with this villa!

MUST go to bioluminescent bay, just down the road from our house. It's a completely unforgettable lifetime experience. Best on a dark moonless night!
