MINIMALIST MASTERPIECE WITH BEAUTIFUL OCEAN VIEWS

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.

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

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!

A most amazing property indeed!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed for many years at Hix Island House on Vieques. This year, we decided to bring some family members and so needed a larger space. I was THRILLED to find Ramp House, also designed by John Hix, and I can't say enough good things about it! The pool is the most magnificent feature - followed closely by the amazing roof deck! I can recommend this property without hesitation at all! It is well situated on the island, quiet as can be and the stars couldn't be brighter! We were able to cook many of our meals there in the fine kitchen. Each couple had their own private bath and the the suites were quite soundproof considering the open walls. The manager was only a text away and answered any questions we had immediately. There were plenty of beach amenities - chairs, towels, snorkeling equipment - and a washer and dryer came in very handy.

Magical Spot - Already looking for an excuse to get back as soon as we can...

  • 5 of 5
Cannot say how much we enjoyed our weeks stay at the Ramp House. We found the house to be perfect in so many ways. Not only convenient to Esperanza and all the beaches it has the most exquisite views from the pool, bedrooms and roof deck.

The unique design, by the noted architect John Hix, is not only beautiful but completely functional. A real marvel of contemporary architecture the house is incredibly comfortable and takes full advantage of the surrounding nature.

The amenities were first class. The kitchen was well equipped and we made good use of it and the grill. We also appreciated having a washer/dryer and the wifi too. The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and practical. The design allows for cooling breezes to pass through at night. Each bedroom has a mosquito net and ceiling fan that only added to our comfort and we didn't find it buggy at all.

You really can't talk about the Ramp House without mentioning its pool. Right off the living area its the perfect spot to hang out and cool off. Indeed we found it hard to tear ourselves away at times to visit the beaches.

The roof deck is also an excellent place to chill out. We watched many a sunset from up top and also enjoyed watching the stars and sea views under the moonlight.

We highly recommend the Ramp House for those looking for a special Vieques experience. We are already looking to get back as soon as we can...

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.
