Vieques Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

4-6 Bedrooms, 5 Full Baths that sleeps up to 14

A charming 4 to 6 bedroom Villa with Pool that is nestled on a private hillside acre on the northern slope of Martineau Hill on the unspoiled island of Vieques, with 180 degree views of the Atlantic Ocean, Puerto Rico and Culebra. The house is designed to combine indoor and outdoor living, having 3800 square feet of interior living space with high ceilings, lots of windows and great tropical breezes. The entrance level contains a large foyer, laundry room, additional bedroom and bath. A center staircase takes you up to the second level foyer that leads to an open living room and dining room with adjacent kitchen, den with TV, master bedroom with bath plus 3 guest bedrooms and 2 baths. The dining room and master bedroom open on to a large comfortable balcony for relaxation and great views. In addition, located on the lower level, there is an additional 2000 sq. ft of covered outdoor living and pool deck where you can have cocktails, cook a meal and dine, or just relax reading a book.

Journey's End: Our charming Villa is situated on a private hillside acre in Martineau section with great views of Puerto Rico and Culebra. There is 3800 sq. ft. of interior living space plus 2000 sq. ft of covered outdoor living and pool deck for cooking and dining.

Located mid island between Espiranza and Isabel II with a short drive to pristine beaches and 1.5 miles from the new W Hotel.

Vieques is the Caribbean as it was 50/60 years ago with crystal clear waters, numerous sandy beaches where often you are the only people there. Definitely the place to get away from it all. Vieques is unique in that 70% of the island is in the U. S. Fish and Wild Life Preserve. The island is 22 miles long by 4 miles wide with a population of 10,000.

The interior is decorated in comfortable Caribbean elegance with all modern conveniences. The house is fully equipped with all new furniture, appliances, linens, beach chairs, towels and just about anything else that you may need. Just bring your clothes, CDs & DVDs and books.

A Palace of A House!

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful home is a palace of a house!! Our family group of six adults enjoyed a wonderful week at Journey's End!! The photos do not do justice to this wonderful house!!

There's everything and more one could possibly need. I even discovered a sewing kit when I needed to replace a button! There are beach chairs, beach toys, floaters, coolers, umbrellas, etc. everything needed for the pristine nearby beaches!!

If you want to stay "home" and enjoy the house, there is a small pool and a beautiful patio area with an umbrella and lounge chairs.

Overhead fans are in abundance and keep the house and outdoor patio comfortable.

We all enjoyed the well equipped kitchen.

Don't bother to bring reading material or games. There is an abundance in the "library"!!

No need to bring a lot of clothes, either. A washer and dryer is very convenient!

The owner's policy of "replace what you finish" was much appreciated. There was no need to immediately purchase laundry detergent, or condiments!!

Journey's End is much more than a "rental" . It's a home where the owner's have just stepped out!!

We highly recommend the island and Journey's End. We plan to return again and again!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I are just back from another trip to Vieques. This trip, we chose Journey's End for our rental. Let me tell you, it was absolutely perfect. The house has everything one could need for a wonderful vacation. We particularly enjoyed the pool area and the upstairs balcony. The house has DirectTV, but who needs or wants TV when you have the Atlantic ocean as your daily view. The kitchen is well-equipped to fix meals at the house and has everything the gourmet cook could need. Centrally located, easy drive to Isabel or Esperanza and the beaches. I have to tell you about the beaches...they are superb! We hit our favorites again (Blue, Red, Secret and Silver) and found a new beach that is opened on the west side--Playa Grande. Our choice for best beach, hands down, is Secret Beach, also known as Playa Prieta. Can't go wrong with any of the beaches!
So, if you are looking for a great vacation, I highly suggest that you check out Journey's End. The owners are great people and have a great house they have so graciously decided to share with the rest of us! Thank you Bob and Pebby.
Sincerely,
Tom & Sue

Comfortable and Elegant? Yes! Quiet...not so much

  • 3 of 5
We have been to Vieques before and stayed in what was described as a quiet retreat on a hillside and it truly was...high up on a hill and tranquil, with just the sound of the trees blowing in the breeze, frogs and geckos, and the occasional dogs barking in the night. That is what we were expecting from this "quiet" location as well. Don't get us wrong; the house was thoroughly enjoyable; beautifully landscaped, spacious, clean and thoughtfully decorated. We had nothing but positive experiences with the house itself. and we love Vieques and plan to keep coming back. We were just completely taken aback by the noise level. We wanted to stay in this house because of the outdoor space, which is beautiful, but the noise level made it unpleasant. The house does indeed sit atop a hill and with a beautifully landscaped yard, but it is far from quiet. We had to change our noise expectations from "Quiet Tropical Retreat" to "Noisy, Suburban Metro". The noise level was louder than our suburban DC location, and I am not even referring to the roosters, barking dogs and frogs, because we found those noises unobtrusive. The house sits very close to a major road and in back of a busy car rental business. The noise from the street is very noticeable including loud trucks, cars, and motorcycles...all playing deafening music that one night shook the house, and awoke us both, at 3:00 a.m. The car rental staff plays loud music from 7 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. although they were nice enough to lower it for a couple of days. The nearest neighbor is a few feet away and his conversations on the cell phone were clearly audible. The last straw was the neighbors leaf blower starting early on a Saturday morning. Not even my neighbors in DC start their leaf blowers that early. Despite all that, we still had a great time and would love to stay at a house like this again...if it were just a few hundred yards further from the street.

Owner's Response: In seven years and hundreds of tenants, this is the first time that there has ever been a complaint about noise. We wish that this tenant had contacted us when they experienced this problem rather than wait a month to notify us. All we would have to do is make two phone calls and the majority of their problem would be gone.

I also need to correct a few erronious statements.
The house sits on 1 acre of land and is 500'+ from 201 which is a narrow 2 lane road.
The house is not behind Maritza's car rental which is locate on 201.
The neighbors house is 100' away and also sits on 3/4 acre of land. It is unfortunate that their gardner decide to do clean up so early.

Again, if we knew that there was a problem, we could have corrected it right away.

Journeys End & Journeys Beginnings...

Journeys End & Journeys Beginnings...
  • 5 of 5
Dear Bob: We have just returned from Vieques and wanted to thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home. It was perfect in every way and we enjoyed ourselves so much. There was not one item overlooked in the house and it truly contained everything one could possible need or use. We just loved it and felt so spoiled sitting outside watching the beautiful view or lazing by the pool...We had a hard time leaving it to do site seeing and looked so forward to returning back home at the end of our day. I would like to add that Karen was wonderful. A water problem developed where the entire Island was shut down for four days and Karen was right on top of the situation, keeping us totally informed and handling the installation of a hose from the house next store so that we would be equipped with water...yes it was a little tough going but it did not damper our vacation in any way. By the way, who ever did the decor is truly an artist, every room was beautiful. We so plan on returning next year so that we may enjoy it again and most certainly will recommend Journeys End to everyone we know! Thank you so much for the perfect vacation. Warm Regards, Dawn and The Maiden Family

Owner's Response: Fortunately on Vieques, water is usually not a problem as Vieques is one of the few Caribbean Island with city water. Journey's End has a 10,000 gallon water cistern available to it for when repairs need to be made to the city water system. In 6 years, this is the first time that we have had to use the cistern.

Our guest were great during this problem time and we cannot wait to have them back.

Beautiful home and setting

  • 5 of 5
The website does not convey how incredible this house is in so many ways - each bedroom nicely designed and unique, outdoor bathroom made it possible to shower under the stars, nice seating areas that encourage relaxed conversation, a great deck for morning coffee. We had 11 family members and friends staying with us (young adults to seniors) and each one enjoyed the house. There are two bedrooms on the first floor for those who might have difficulty climbing stairs.

Celebrated our daughter's wedding with a dinner party one evening and the kitchen easily accomodated preparations for 25 people. Had the reception for 50+ on the deck with room for dancing, a Merangue band, and round tables.

The pool is small but could not be in a more beautiful spot. House was well equipped with beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas, washer and dryer, games, etc. Guests leave items for the next group so we did not have to rush around the first day as there was coffee, etc. for us to use.

The owner and house manager answered our pre-stay questions. We paid for an extra cleaning before the wedding reception and the cleaners were very quick and did a great job. The house manager worked well with the wedding planner.

This house is lovely and the views are amazing, including seeing the many horses grazing in the field next door. Wish I could have coffee on the deck tomorrow.

A Special Place for A Special Occasion

  • 5 of 5
Dear Peggy and Bob,
We want to thank you for making our stay at Journeys End an incredible experience. We celebrated the 50th Wedding Anniversary of my brother and sister-in-law. It was a total surprise to them that their children and grandchildren would be joining them to help celebrate the occasion. Thanks to Karen, your property manager, everything went according to plan. The house was better than advertised and had all of the amenities you could possibly want or need. Our family of 8 adults and 2 children immediately felt comfortable and at home. The ocean views from the upper deck were spectacular. Since it was off season, many of the restaurants were closed but we enjoyed several meals at The Next Course, and Carambola. Our favorites, when they are open, are El Quenepo, Trade Winds and Coconuts. In addition, we arranged for a catered, poolside Anniversary Dinner which was expertly executed by Alex and Glen of Aguacate Catering. It went well beyond our expectations. The entire week was very special and filled with memories my family will never forget. We loved Vieques and our stay at Journeys End. We can't wait to return. Thanks again.
The Affoumado Family
