"Villa Altamira is the perfect vacation home in Vieques! I was amazed that the house was even better than its description. The owners, John and Karen, were extremely responsive, helpful, and kind during the reservation and payment process. The house is located on a hill with plenty of property surrounding it and a gate for privacy and security—you really do feel almost secluded in the middle of a friendly neighborhood. It’s only a ten-minute walk into the main town of Isabel where there are restaurants, convenience stores, bakeries, coffee shops, and bars. If you rent a Jeep, you can explore the entire island easily—nothing is more than twenty minutes away. The house itself is designed perfectly to allow for plenty of privacy for everyone. I love that each bedroom is on its own floor with its own bathroom. It’s a perfect spot for several couples—there were four adults during our stay. This is one of the most well-equipped rental houses I have ever stayed in, with plenty of cooking supplies, towels, and even flashlights and candles for when the electricity went out! We really enjoyed being able to use all of the beach gear (cooler, chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, etc.), and we were saved from having to buy or rent any equipment. The house was extremely clean and well-taken care of, and the property managers (Annette and Dennis) were only a text message away for immediate assistance with anything we needed. We especially enjoyed playing games on the covered deck in the evenings and swimming in the beautiful pool morning, afternoon, and night! I also made much use of the outdoor shower. The views from all over the house are incredible. We loved looking at the stars from the rooftop deck, and my fiance actually proposed to me on the upper pool deck at sunset! I can’t wait to get back to this incredible house on this incredible island! Thanks so much John, Karen, Annette, and Dennis!"
