My wife and I fell in Love with Vieques in the Spring of 2001 and purchased this vacant 1/2 Acre Beach Front Lot. We purchase the adjoining lot 8 months later and built a small Bungalow. This 3br./2ba. Beach House was in our plans for 7.5 year until we finally built it in the spring of 2010. We spent Christmas in Vieques in 2010 and had a wonderful family experience. We hope our Beach Home can bring you and your families the same kind of wonderful experiences. Time spent with loved ones on the beach with your feet in the water,children snorkeling or making sand castles is truly priceless. Let me help you plan your vacation. Thanks, Jon Schmidt

Jon Schmidt purchased this house in 2001

The Beach is only 50 steps from the house; The North end of our lot is actually the Beach. The children learned to snorkel at 2 and 3 years of age, because of the calm waters in the rock pool area.

JUST got back a few days ago from a week's stay at this incredible property. We were 2 adults and 2 children (ages 10 and 5). The house could not have been more perfect. The location is great - very close to town but far enough away that you get that sense of being away from it all. The view from the porch is incredible. The beach in front of the house is great for kids - oftentimes there is a little tidal pool that is calm and filled with things for the kids to explore. Don't want that? A few steps away is a more open spot. The beach is something off a postcard - palm trees, sunsets, etc.... and you usually have it all to yourself! The house is much bigger than we expected. Each bedroom is a decent size as are both bathrooms. We cooked every day and all you will need is right there for you. For the first time we finally did what we always said we would - only packed 1 bathing suit, 2 pairs of shorts and 3 t-shirts... why bring more with the washer/dryer? Vieques is a beautiful island. SO many beaches to explore. Getting a Jeep is a must if you want to see them all. The drive to the Caribbean side of the island only takes a few minutes. Great restaurants are just a short drive away. The couple that help manage the property (Ron and Cheryl) could not have been nicer, and helped us get to the car rental place, answered any question we had while we were there, but gave us our own space/privacy during the week. We rarely want to return to places as there's just so much of the world to see... but I truly believe we will be back to Vieques - and to this property in particular!

My wife & I returned to Vieques in early December, 2013 for a week in paradise before the end of another year. Living in the metro Kansas City area we missed a week of snow & artic air while relaxing on the secluded white sand beaches of this gorgeous island. Seven years ago we spent our honeymoon on Vieques and stayed in a smaller beach house next door to the one we stayed this trip. Our first trip we missed the Bio Bay excursion so we decided to spend an evening observing the bioluminescent organisms light show. We found the local islanders to be as friendly and welcoming as they were 7 years ago. Although the public beach 30 yards from our large screened in porch was fantastic we visited several beaches on the south side of the island for change of scenery. Although we did see a few other people at the beaches, for the most part, we usually had the whole beach to ourselves. Although the various beaches are fairly close geographically each one is unique. With the jeep we rented we were able to get to the other beaches in less than 30 minutes from leaving the beach house after circumventing the notorious pot holes along the access roads.
We highly recommend a visit to Vieques and in particular the beach house. We only had two but I can see how the beach house could accommodate a family with 3-4 kids or 2-3 couples nicely. Although dining & shopping is limited the food and shops are great.
The property manager was available and very helpful answering questions and recommending restaurants and shops. It did not take long to become familiar with the island. The beach house comes with beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, games, DVDs and books which was nice. The week went by too fast so we will have to return in the future.

We have just returned from a wonderful week on Vieques Island, staying at Jon’s beautiful house. Ron, the house manager, picked us up from the ferry and drove us to get our rental car. He waited with us until the car was ready, and then took us to the house. The house was perfect for six people, with three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The house was clean and well stocked, including a grill and a smoker, when we arrived. Ron was exceedingly kind, checking on us multiple times during our stay. He even helped us take care of a stray dog which found its way near our house. (We loved the friendly dogs, but if you are afraid of dogs, Vieques is probably not the vacation destination for you). The screened in deck was a great place to eat breakfast, watching the waves in the distance. A beautiful, private beach (shared only with wild horses) was only a few steps away, perfect for swimming, snorkeling,
watching sunsets and admiring rainbows.

We cannot think of a better place to stay to explore the island. The house is only minutes away from the main town with delicious restaurants. It is easy to get around the island with a car.


We hope to return in the future and will certainly stay again in Jon’s house.

My wife and I have been wanting to go to Vieques for over 10 years and the stars were aligned this January. We arent big on the all-inclusive resort scene or any crowds so familiar with many other Caribbean locations and Vieques is the antithesis of all the trappings you want to avoid in the usual locations like Cancun or Jamaica. Most of the island is very undeveloped (only one "chain" resort on the island) and while the island is small enough to get anywhere in 15 to 30 minutes, everywhere is an adventure. Just decide which beach you want to visit and make a day out of it.. That's if you ever need to leave the beach house and Playa Bastimento. To begin, going on a trip like this with two young children (ages 2 and 6) is no small feat. Jon the owner worked with me from the very beginning to make sure I knew what I needed to do, where to go and how to get there. Once we arrived on the island, David and his wife Barb who manage the house onsite were extremely helpful and accessible in a couple of jams. The house had pretty much everything a family of 4 would need and the very secluded beach with a shallow lagoon right out the back door was as good if not better than any of the other beaches we visited on the island, and that is a very high bar. If it weren't for the itch to go out and explore we could have stayed there for most of our trip. At the end of our stay we sat on that beach watching the sun set, our hearts heavy knowing that tomorrow was the end, then frantically scrambling for a few hours to try to change our flights and stay for 2 more days (didn't work out..). Yeah, we didn't want to leave primarily because we didn't spend enough time, right there in that spot at the house and on that beach. So one more night enjoying the trade winds blowing lightly through the house and one more morning waking to the sound of the gentle surf (and a friendly pack of wild horses that snuck in the fence that morning). We didn't want to wash the sand off before heading back to Wisconsin. Forever grateful for the experience, we plan on making it a tradition and all things permitting, will be staying in the same place.

We had a wonderful time at this beach house! 3 bedrooms were perfect for 3 couples, and the 2 bathrooms really helped. The screened in porch was where we spent most of our time (if we weren’t at the beach!) and it’s a terrific space. A little more counter space in the kitchen would have helped when preparing meals. The house was clean and well maintained, and having the beach chairs and water toys available was really appreciated - the guys got into spear fishing (and one actually caught a fish!) The beach is pretty private and gets visits from the friendly dogs and horses that roam the island. While we enjoyed the animals, the roosters beginning about 5:00 every morning was something we all could have done without! The wind coming from the water was nice - it blew away any bugs. (When we visited the beaches on the other side of the island, sand had mixed with the wind and stung a bit.) It’s about a mile and a half from town so definitely rent a car. There are a number of restaurants and bars, small grocery stores and farmers markets a few days a week so you won’t go hungry (or thirsty!) Definitely check out Bio Bay - either by kayak or electric pontoon boat tour. The boat tour was a little long, but definitely something you don’t want to miss - and the stars are amazing! 80 degrees every day in January was especially nice. The owner was easy to work with, and the property manager was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this property, and might even go back next year (roosters and all!)
