Vieques Island House Rental Photos and Description
Lo-season, $175p/n; Hi-season: w 1 bdrm $200p/n; w 3 bdrm $220p/n
Adjacent to the Nature Reserve, on a hilltop in Barrio Monte Carmelo; sleeps up to 6 with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2 large wrap-around terraces with an outdoor dining area and built-in gas grill. Our beautiful, architecturally-designed home offers incredible views in all directions with breezes to match. Wake up in the glorious morning to unobstructed views of the Reserve and the island of Culebra, and even St. John and St. Croix on a clear day, or have a cocktail on the front balcony while you watch the lights of Vieques and main-island Puerto Rico twinkle in the distance. The countryside location is in the center of the island so you can be just about anywhere in 5-20 minutes — from the island's best beaches to restaurants and shopping. Our Viequense neighbors are friendly and respond in kind to a smile and a wave. Friendly dogs, wandering chickens and free-roaming horses are all a part of day-to-day life in Monte Carmelo, so if an insulated resort-like experience is what you're looking for, then our house is not for you. But if you are looking to experience real-life Vieques in the comfort of a safe and stylish house, then we have no doubt you will love it here. Free wifi and hard-wired computer access. In high season, if only the master bedroom is rented with the house, the per-night rate is reduced to $200 from $220 for all 3 bedrooms. In lo-season it is $175 per night for 1-3 bedrooms. Note there is always only 1 party in the house at a time.

Why Jamie & Perri chose Vieques Island
We love our mountain-top location with it's constant breezes and and unstoppable views of the Nature Reserve, the distant islands, and Vieques itself. It's always comfortable, with no need for air conditioning, and when the mosquitoes are biting in town, the breezes keep them away on the hill. As a bonus, our house is located in the center of the island so it's equally convenient to get to just about anywhere you'll want to be.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We absolutely loved this house, which suited our needs perfectly: one couple in the master bedroom, another couple and their kids downstairs. Since the downstairs rooms are separate from the main house (no internal stairs), this made it a bit "raw" during rain to travel back and forth. Thankfully it rains very little here. But the night time privacy was nice for all. The house is BEAUTIFUL. The sitting couches that also serve as beds have spoiled us. The eternal breezes kept mosquitos and flies away and kept us cool out on the deck. We all enjoyed the view we were greeted with every morning (even my 16 year old twins marveled at the views, and they're jaded about EVERYTHING). The three water hoses were very well placed, allowing us many trips to the beaches: we were able to hose off our feet and legs before stepping into the house. The floors, however, were easy to sweep out, if needed. Perri and Miriam were great helps with our stay on the island. The information packet is a great source of information, I strongly suggest reading it over when you arrive. You will regret it if you don't, because restaurant and shopping information is great.
