The ocean view is spectacular from this marine artist's 4 bedroom, 3 bath home located on a private cul-de-sac overlooking the harbor of Isabel Segunda and across to the main island of Puerto Rico and the islands of St Thomas and Culebra. Sit in the screened-in sunroom, or the huge open terrace with your morning coffee and watch the fishing boats and ferries come and go. This is a peaceful retreat; listen to the sound of the ocean and the coquis (peeping frogs).
The sunsets from the terrace are magnificent. The house is just a couple minute walk from a small sandy beach and great snorkeling.
On the top floor is a spacious living room, the kitchen, a dining area and the porch (alternate outdoor dining), a master bedroom with a king bed and bathroom, 2 smaller bedrooms, with twin beds that share a bath and a laundry area with washer/dryer. On the lower level, with a separate entrance, is a large bedroom with queen bed and en suite bath.
Alma Vista is owned by 2 friendly families, the Evans and the Chamagnes
The Owner purchased this house in 2009
We had rented this lovely home for a number of years during our travels to Vieques. When the chance came to purchase it, we jumped at it for its incredible views and private location!
Getting together with family on the terrace, cooking a gourmet meal and watching the ferry come in and the sun go down...
We stayed as 2 couples in this lovely home. Alma vista was well equipped with comfortable beds, lots of indoor and outdoor space and beautiful views from the large terrace. We ended up eating at home most evenings because there was no place better to be watching the sunset. The villa is well decorated and comfortable. The villa would be perfect for as many as 3 couples as there is a separate downstairs suite. The owners had provided lots of info to ensure our stay went well.
Six of us stayed at Alma Vista recently. We had stayed there a few years ago when it had different owners. This very well kept villa has exceptional privacy along with amazing views of the main island, Culebra, St Thomas, the Vieques lighthouse, the ferries coming in and going out. It has a roomy piazza where we ate most of our meals. We would have liked a gas BBQ but we cooked some great meals in the charcoal one. The new owners have added a tv, internet, painted inside and fixed everything up with new linens and kitchen gear. We love this little piece of paradise and will be back again this winter. We think the value of this property on Vieques is hard to beat!!
We have had an awesome stay. The house is everything that it says it is - well-located and comfortable with big sunny deck and great view on the prot and the water. Sunsets that had us taking pictures every night and privacy. The kitchen was all equipped, there were books, and wifi. The owners sent us lots of good info before we arrived, and the house manager Kikito met us and showed us around the house. We locked ourselves out and he came right over too. The nearest beach is about a 4 minute walk and we walked into town for sundowners and to see the people lining up in the morning for hot bread. We rented a Jeep and hit most of the beaches which are better than anywhere we've ever been.
We'll be back and we will return to Alma Vista - this is a real find and very good value. We were only 2 people but it could have had 6-7 easily. We would recommend this.
We had a great time here - the house was spacious and comfortable and we loved to have our sundowners with the beautiful sunsets spread out for us to see from the big deck, where we spent a lot of time.
There is a family of resident iguanas down the slope where the lawn stops and the trees and tall grass start - look for them in the afternoon.
we went to the local beach swimming most mornings - 2 of us before breakfast, then often took the Jeep to blue beach. We also explored all the little roads - loved the one that goes across the island from near the mosquito pier.
we will come back - we appreciated the reference books and the puzzles too.
This was our first visit to Vieques. The owers sent out lots of info before our arrival and that was very helpful. Alma Vista's house manager met us at the ferry and took us to the house - we rented a jeep from him too, at a good rate. The house was large and comfortable for 3 couples and the deck was fabulous. Everything we needed in the kitchen, washer/dryer in the house very handy. We loved the sound of the coqui frogs at night, and even taped them.
Blue beach was our favorite beach, and we also found very good snorkeling next to Mosquito Pier. One couple took an early morning swim and snorkel at the local beach every day. We all liked to walk into town in the evening and stroll like the locals...
We hope to come back and would return to this house.
We spent 2 weeks in March here - the new owners have added wifi, TV, new kitchen appliances, and it was very comfortable for the 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 older children.
We spent a lot of time on the terrace - breakfast,sundown (amazing sunsets, amazing view) evening meals and depending on when we went exploring, lots in between. We used the wifi on the terrace too. We loved the Vieques beaches and the little roads.
Kitchen was well equipped, with a new stove and staples like spices and oil, which was great.
There are some good reference books,and artwork all around,and it felt like a nice comfortable place to stay. We hope to come back.
