Overview

Vieques Island House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

When you're on vacation, the house you stay at should be as beautiful as the surroundings you're in. This modern eco-lux house, designed by John Hix, and finished in September of 2009, epitomizes that idea.

No matter where you are in the house. Kitchen, living room, or the bedrooms, you see an uninterrupted vista of trees, that culminates in the wide blue sea. The house was built to take advantage of prevailing breezes, so it's always cool. Whether you're barbecuing by the pool, or having a drink on the roof deck watching the sun set into the ocean, the ramp house is a relaxing, organic experience. If you need air-conditioning and wide-screen tv, then this house isn't for you. But, if you like indoor/outdoor living, waking up to the sound of the birds, the warm breeze on your skin, then this is the place. Due to it's design, The Ramp House is not appropriate for children under ten years of age.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a place! What a vacation! We had such a marvelous time at the Ramp House and in Vieques. What a unique and wonderful house! Its openness was a gift, as was its simplicity. The concrete was intimidating the first few hours, but we quickly fell in love with its serenity. The spareness of the place was utterly soothing - something I aspire to in my own home. Being directed toward the pool and the view, not to mention the up-close foliage and the horses, was spectacular. And the bedrooms were magical - again, the view, the simplicity, being treated to the night sky, to the dawn, but most of all, to the elegant mosquito net. Going to bed was something I looked forward to. The room and the netting made a gentle enclosure. And the accessibility of the pool! What a luxury to step from your living room into the water and to swim in such private circumstances. Oh, thank you, thank you to the owners for making their home available for our family to enjoy. We were also very grateful for the owner's booklet of recommendations. (Not to mention his photographs, which were outstanding!!) We enjoyed discovering parts of Vieques and some of its amazing beaches. The weather and the scenery were also a gift. And now, after a well-rested week away, we are home. I wish I could crawl under the netting tonight.

Stunning home in a idyllic, private location.

  • 5 of 5

A girlfriend/colleague and I spent a week at ramp house to clear our minds and do some professional writing. I've been to Vieques three times prior to this trip and this trip was the best -- hands down -- because Ramp house is the best place I have stayed on the island. This house is simply stunning for all of your senses -- open air design, high ceilings, polished concrete. The design brings the best of the inside outdoors -- the light breeze, the island sounds of crickets, horses whinnying, and birds (even some dogs and roosters in the distance in Esperanza). The house is much larger than it appears; there were many places to think and write -- my favorite was the rooftop where I perched above the forest canopy and watch both the sunrise and the sunset. Even though there were only two of us, I could see being here with three couples and still feel like we had a ton of space. Oh, and did I mention the three amazeballs outdoor showers with views of the horizon? There were a pack of three horses that would drop by a few times a day, too. We were thoroughly amused by the white horse that visited for the primary reason of scratching his hiney on a branch by the house that was at the perfect level for him. In addition, the house is stylishly decorated with the owner's photography (very cool), is impeccably clean and maintained, has every amenity (beach chairs, snorkel stuff, beach towels, washer dryer, lovely kitchen [we cooked many meals in house]) so that everything was there for us. There was also an excellent binder with descriptions of all the best beaches (and how to get there), as well as restaurants (with menus), and recommendations for what to do on the island (biobay, horseback riding -- make reservations before your arrival). The property managers and the real estate agent were excellent -- thoughtful, informative, kind, and very helpful.

In sum, this was the perfect vacation -- relaxing, fulfilling, and very private. I can't wait to go back again.

Fantastic!!! A true experience.....

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing - stunning views, very private, great location, an uber cool home. We especially loved the swimming pool right in our living room. The outdoor showers were wonderful, especially at night under the stars. A few of our group slept on the roof for a few nights and had the best star show on the island. The kitchen was well appointed and the house manager took care of everything we needed. Sleeping there was interesting - you can hear all of the outdoor sounds and you will awaken to the sunshine on your face. The closeness with nature will remind you that you are away from it all - you will hear birds, horses, dogs, cows, etc. We loved being close to Esperanza, the beaches, and yoga at Hix. Vieques is a true gem and staying at this house is unforgettable. We already booked for next year......

We love Ramp House!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, my 7-year-old daughter, and I just returned from a week at Ramp House. This is our second time staying at the property. I don't think we could stay anywhere else.

Thing we love about it:

The privacy. The grounds are large and you do not see other neighbors -- except for a few wild horses who like to nibble the grasses. You feel removed from it all.

The pool. It stretches the entire length of the house and is about 5 feet deep. It is gorgeous. While swimming you have wonderful views down about a half-mile of lush hills to the ocean. Can't decide whether it is better in the morning as the sun is rising or at night when the stars are out.

The layout. Living, cooking, and swimming on the first floor; sleeping on the second floor; lounging on the roof deck. Everything is open. No glass windows. (Yes, that means no air-conditioning. Who care? The breezes and fans are better.) Great views from every floor. Those pictures are accurate!

The amenities. Everything you need is here. Beach towels, beach chairs, snorkel gear, sand toys, wi-fi, blue-tooth music player, blender, coffee-maker, great stove and refrigerator.

We'll be back for sure.

Gorgeous Relaxing Property

  • 5 of 5

This incredible modern masterpiece offered the PERFECT getaway. The open air breezes always flowing through the home make you feel like you are in another world. The contrast of the modern aesthetic with the wilderness around you is truly magical. Wild horses were a daily occurrence nearby and sunsets on the roof were to perfect way to unwind after a hard day of lying by the pool...The pictures don't do it justice - it's incredible.

Relaxing and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This is an extraordinary place to relax and get away from city life. I was there for a week with my partner and a few friends and we all enjoyed it immensely. The home is a gorgeous piece of functional art! The views are exquisite, the peace and quiet was exactly what we hoped for. Renee and Julie were very welcoming and helpful. We all cannot wait to go back!

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at the Ramp House for five days, and it provided the ultimate venue for three things: 1) complete and utter relaxation: the house is situated in a very private area with beyond gorgeous views of the ocean and surrounding vistas. No matter what time of day, the home is a beacon of romantic serenity. 2) One-of-a-kind design: we felt like we were living in a magazine, or some sort of dream-inspired reality. The home is indoor/outdoor living in a way that brings the energy and beauty of nature into your life 3) Luxury gone wild: the simple yet high design furniture, the modern architecture and the all-you-can-ask-more-and-more amenities create a perfect blend of understated opulence and breezy jungle realness. On the practical side, the house manage is reliable, friendly and helpful. The house is immaculately clean and conveniently located. And the pool is one of the best we've experienced in the world - this house is nothing short of perfect. Mornings and afternoons at the pool, or a five minute drive to gorgeous, pristine beaches and the cutest town you've ever seen (Esperanza). A state of the art kitchen, three large bedrooms (each featuring a spectacular outdoor shower), and a sunshine soaked roof top. What more could you want? Just to be able to stay one more day...or month!

Map

The location of The Ramp House is ideal, while private and pastoral, it's just five minutes to shops, restaurants and beach in Esperanza, or five minutes to groceries and gas in town.
