About the property

Superb 4 Br 3 Bath 2-Level Home at The Ocean Near Town

Island Dreemz is a tropical paradise on a cliff over the Atlantic Ocean, with breathtaking panoramic views of Culebra, St. Thomas, and of El Junque Peak in the rainforest on the main island of Puerto Rico. This beautiful, comfortable and secure private house sits above a coral reef and surf beach with soothing ocean breezes. Regular visitors include pelicans, the truly Magnificent Frigate Bird (wingspans of 7 feet), egrets, and laughing gulls and even humpback whales! A three-minutes' walk (about 100 yards) down the shore road takes you to a small, intimate beach where you can relax, snorkel and swim. A cooler, beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels are provided. An outdoor shower in the garden is at your convenience for post-beach rinsing and refreshing.

It is only a 8- to 10-minute walk along the shore road to the ferry and to the town of Isabel II with casual and world-class dining, an art gallery, and the wonderful deli/café/caterer 'Buen Provecho' with delicious imported cheeses - among many other delicious edibles. Here in Isabel II you can also find local night life and shopping.

Our amazing tropical garden and a natural coral tile-paved interior await you at our serene retreat. It is a sublime, contemporary-meets-natural two-story home away from home. A total of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms is arranged on 2 floors with separate private entrances.

Island Dreemz is comfortably enveloped by ocean breezes; however, it also offers state-of-the-art, remote-controlled A/Cs in every room. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors display unimpeded views of the ocean. Each floor has both a one-bedroom suite with a queen-size bed and a second bedroom with two twin beds that can be attached for a king-size option. Three bedrooms in all have en-suite bathrooms.

Each house level has a kitchen and living room with separate private entry on each floor. The art is changed periodically. Kitchens are fully equipped with china, glassware, coffee makers and tea pots, ceramic cook tops and microwave ovens (because we like to cook!). But you will have many other dining options! The upstairs kitchen also includes a large Breville convection toaster oven for roasting and baking if desired. Just steps from the kitchen is a large entertaining patio with outdoor fire pit ready for grilling or fire-watching.

Additionally, there is a flat screen television ready for use with internet connection. Hi-speed wifi service is provided free of charge at Island Dreemz.

With on-site parking, an outdoor deck that can seat 12 easily, modern appliances, a 7-foot natural stone shower, the wrap-around sun deck, a short walk to direct beach access that rarely has people on it, a 15-minute ride to the airport, your 24/7 security system, your every need is anticipated. You're also about a 15-minute drive to Esperanza and its night life, Bio Bay tours, and Sun Bay and all the other amazing beaches on Vieques.

We look forward to making your island dreemz come true!

About Ann Marie Heal

I am an artist and had been searching for years with my husband for this place: Gorgeous views, an abundance of nature and warm breezes year round. When we visited Vieques in July of 2010, we felt immediately that the island and its people had it all. The weather was perfect. The views were remarkable. There were horses seemingly everywhere. Hiking and kayaking, swimming and snorkeling kept us busy and contented. Soft breezes merged with the saturated colors of ocean and sky in colors I could hardly believe. I could only think that it was a paradise. I couldn't leave it after we became proud owners, so I spent a year creating a tropical garden that became my tranquil oasis in Vieques.

Ann Marie Heal purchased this house in 2010

Why Ann Marie Heal chose Vieques Island

Island Dreemz took our breath away the first time we saw it, and it continues to amaze us with the sparkling ocean always before us and the lushness of our surroundings. It is situated on a cliff over the ocean and has a deck on three sides with translucent sliding glass doors, providing an unparalleled view of the sea and/or private garden from every room. With our wonderful South American art collection inside and an uninterrupted view of the water and our diverse garden outside, you feel like you are one with the ocean and sky. It makes us smile every day to know it is waiting for our return. We fell in love with Vieques after two days there in 2010 because of what the island did to our senses: the air, the life all around at the beaches and woods and mangroves reset our systems to feel better and enjoy where we were and what we were doing with an amazing clarity. The stars are bigger and brighter in Vieques: it has been ear-marked as an optimal observatory site because of the absence of light pollution. We saw the international space station in September as large and bright as a beacon!

What makes this house unique

The sound of the waves lapping the shore is soothing and tranquil, the breeze keeps you in constant comfort (with a split system AC in every room to guarantee perfect temperatures even in the middle of summer). You can walk to an intimate snorkel beach as well as all the amenities in Isabel II. Being at Island Dreemz makes worries melt away with each passing breath and breaking wave!

Beautiful view, safe, convenient. No cellphone signal, the house has wifi.

  • 4 of 5

Except the mosquitos, we had almost perfect experience in this house, we truly enjoyed the beautiful ocean view and convenient room setting, plus, we also really like all the art works. We definitely will recommend this rental house to our friends!

The mosquitos in house actually has been a bit of a problem. We were very careful with the doors, but each of us still got bitten at least 30 plus times when sleeping. We saw that there was mosquito repellent and smoke coils in house, but those probably are not good to use when sleeping. I would suggest some indoor electronic mosquito traps invested in the future, they are not expensive at all, but probably will make the staying much more enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting me know your vacation was "near perfect" and for recommending Island Dreemz to your friends. I hope to make your next stay even better! Cell phone service depends on your carrier and proximity to their cell tower, and we also free landline service in the house. We are not usually troubled by mosquitoes because of the wonderful ocean breezes. We are currently working with a firm that is to produce a new eco-friendly repellant, so I can make sure all our guests are reassured their vacations will not be just "near perfect," but perfect in the future!

Very nice property worth staying there

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week there and can only say good things about the property. Location is great with direct views over the wonderful sea and walking distance to the ferry. Nevertheless, you will need to rent a car since all the good beaches are in the southern part of the island. The house is fully equipped with everything you might need and more. The layout of the property into two floor provides great flexibility. Bedrooms, upstairs and downstairs are spacious and each one has its own air conditioning unit. Bathrooms are modern and clean. The sitting room has awesome views with direct access to the terrace overlooking the sea as well as a large sofa and dinning table. There is also a grill and a nice garden on the back of the house. There is a very useful beach shower lots of beach toys for everyone to enjoy it. Wifi works very well. The only point I would mention as it was a small surprise for us, but not necessary negative way, is that there is no TV

In summary, a very nice place to stay in Vieques, in a good location,clean, well equipped and with good local support in case you need something. A very easy recommendation for any one looking for a property in the island

Best Property on the Island

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 longtime high school friends met in Vieques and stayed at Island Dreemz (March 2016). The house is beautiful, clean, well furnished with great art work and beautiful gardens. Val, the property manager was such a help, meeting us at the airport and pointing out good places to eat or shop. The house has everything you need including beach chairs, beach towels, and even shopping bags for the grocery store since Vieques has banned plastic bags. The split level works as one house or two. We used both levels for sleeping, but mostly stayed on the top floor for relaxing and hanging out together. Make sure when you visit that you schedule a bio bay tour. We used Abe's Snorkling and they were great. It was the highlight of our trip. Safety wise the house has a great security system and is in a nice, quiet part of town, so we always felt at ease and safe. I can't say enough good things about this house. I want to return with my children now so they can see the bio bay and this will be the only place I look to book.

Great home with sea views

  • 5 of 5

Our group 7 finds Vieques beaches to be the best in the Caribbean which is why after visiting other Islands we decide to return again and again. But, the home we choose can make it a great experience or a bad one and for us this was a great one. To start, it’s true that the owner will respond in 1 hour with your inquiry or questions. That alone is a bonus. North Shore Road is a great location with a nice walk to town. After spending a day at the beach we enjoyed returning home by 4 to catch the sunset and cook in. Great grill. Cocktails on the veranda anyone! We all loved the large balcony which has a fabulous sea view. Both apartments were well equipped, spacious, comfortable, and clean. Having beach chairs for all was a big plus. The gardens, potted plants and landscaping are lovely. Loved all the art work in the home. The house manager was very friendly, stopped by to clean the gardens and lawn and was so very helpful especially when we needed help locating a doctor for one of our travel companions who was very sick. I would strongly recommend this home to anyone who wanted to mix some quite time with options for local restaurants and bars nearby. Not to miss is Banana’s in Esperanza’s happy hour with $4.00 drinks and $4.00 fish taco’s that are the best we found on the Island. My favorite Restaurant is Coqui Fire, Favorite Place to shop for gifts was Isla Vida. Happy Travels.

Truly and Island Dream

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Island Dreemz house in Vieques from February 13th to the 19th, 2016. We were two couples and appreciated the house setup that allowed each of us our private space. The house was clean and well decorated. Even though each couple had its own floor with living room area and fully functional kitchen, we decided to use the top floor area as our main living and dining areas to enjoy each other's company. In particular, the view from the top floor was fantastic, only surpassed by the comfort and the view from the very large and well situated deck where we enjoyed some breakfasts, lunches and afternoon drinks and snacks.

The bedrooms are large enough and the beds were very comfortable. Anne Marie even told me that the bed was brand new in the Master Bedroom. Washroom and showers were great with plenty of hot water from the flow-heater. Beach chairs and cooler for the beach were very convenient to have.

On a slightly negative side, Internet reception was very good on the top floor but difficult to get on the first floor; this was not a problem for us. I am sure this can be easily fixed. A tv set was there but we never even switched it on; I am confident it would work fine since everything else did.

Finally, the house is very well situated, out of the "busier" part of town but within walking distance . The street that is in front of the house only sees very few cars every day as well as horses from the riding shop around the corner. So the area is very quiet and you can sleep just with the sound of the waves: very nice.

During my stay I had a fraud on my credit card thus causing a problem with the refund of our security deposit. Anne Marie was VERY helpful in doing everything she could to assist me in getting it back (which we did). I was very grateful for her patience and assistance.

On a very personal note, my husband has always refused to return to a same place on successive trips but the island of Vieques has made him change his mind on this and, when we do, we will most certainly include Island Dreemz in our plans.

Breathe in the air in Vieques once and it will beckon you to return again and again to fill your senses with relaxation and peace. Step from unblemished sands into a snorkeler's paradise on more than a dozen beaches, each with a different style. Dive from or just amble down the one-mile long scenic pier, or stay near the grounds and walk to the cove around the corner and swim or snorkel with abundant sea life on the local reef. See one of the wonders of the Caribbean at Bio Bay, our world-class bioluminescent lagoon. Warning: you may not want to leave the verdant tropical garden in the back yard filled with exotic flowers, mango and banana trees, agave and aloe plants, and the hypnotic smell of our 18-foot Ylang Ylang tree wafting its Chanel scent through your master bedroom and garden while everywhere you look the aquamarine ocean sparkles back at you. Choose any one of our delicious restaurants: try Conuco, Coqui Fire or the gourmet deli/cafe Buen Provecho in Isabel II (a ten-minute walk); for an island feast in Esperanza, try El Quenepo, Bili, Bananas or Tradewinds on the Caribbean. Walk to Mamasonga (eight minutes) for a friendly low-key outdoor bar and patio, but don't forget the fish 'n chips at Mar Azul (eight minutes) on Friday! Tour the mangroves and see if you can find our amazing manatees. Bring a camera: you won't want to miss the chance to show off your photos of herds of wild Paso Fino horses in our fields and on the beaches when you return home.
