Overview

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.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Jamie & Perri

We are Jamie and Perri and we live in Brooklyn, NY when we're not in Vieques. Jamie has a wine shop and Perri is a graphic designer. We love Vieques and we can tell you all of our favorite not-to-be-missed places so you can enjoy it as much as we do!

Jamie & Perri purchased this house in 2006

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.

What makes this house unique

• unobstructed views of the Nature Reserve, distant islands, Vieques and Puerto RIco

• constant breezes

• Completely renovated, unique architectural design inspired by Spanish-Colonial detailing, featuring a plethora of traditionally-made tile and woodwork.

• 2 large rear terraces, a front balcony, and a built-in outdoor gas grill

• located in the center of the island making all destinations within 10-20 minutes

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been fortunate to have blogger extraordinaire, Cassie of Hisugarplum.com, and her lovely family as our guests twice this year. She took some fantastic photographs of the house that we would love to share with you. See Cassie's blog post about El Dormilon at:

Wonderfully relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Vieques! Perri was very responsive to all our inquiries about the property. It was exactly as advertised and we found the views to be even better in person! The house was very clean and comfortable and having the beach chairs was great. We would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a great 'local' getaway.

Just amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to write a review because the house was so great and I want to be able to come back easily! The house was simply stunning. The furnishings were beautiful, all the kitchen utensils were top notch and the house was spotless. Perri got back to me so quickly and was so nice to work with. It was such a beautiful place, my boyfriend proposed to me on the top terrace overlooking the mountains and ocean! I cannot recommend this place enough!

Top of the world

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautifully decorated and situated high atop the island for wonderful vistas and breezes. The photos and description are accurate, and the home was very clean & well-maintained. Both the owner and manager were accessible if needed and focused on doing anything they could to ensure a wonderful experience. We didn't need the supplies as we bring our own, but there was even a very nice selection of snorkeling gear.

I think it is important to travel with white noise apps on your phone or tablet as there were nights that the neighbor's dog was unbelievably loud. We needed two devices going to mostly (not completely) mask the howling and barking. The family may have been away the week we were there, with his staff on site only during the day. I hear they may be moving, though!

Our favorite restaurant was Coqui Fire Grill. Sit at the bar and make some new friends!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The house is awesome! Definitely rent a jeep :)

Miriam, the island contact was extremely helpful and nice.

Very close to town and emergency groceries but still secluded enough to get away from it all.

I could live in that master bedroom!!

Wonderful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five arrived here for a quick vacation before school started back. When we arrived Miriam greeted us and gave us a tour of this magnificent house! She assured us that she was only a phone call away if we had any problems. We spent every day exploring the beaches and snorkeling with the equipment provided with the house. Evenings were spent at the great local restaurants and watching the sun set from the verandah. I would live to make this an annual vacation spot for my family. Both Perri and Miriam were so helpful. We really felt at home at El Dormilion!

Map

Car: necessary

Vieques is a small, unspoiled island 7 miles east and a world away from the main island of Puerto Rico. Our neighborhood, Barrio Monte Carmelo, is a rustic, local, hilltop community centrally located between the Island's best beaches and the towns of Esperanza and Isabel Segunda. In 10-20 minutes you'll be on the beach in the Nature Reserve or at one of the island's best restaurants. Our Viequense neighbors are friendly and respond in kind to a smile and a wave. Friendly pups, 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, than 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, than we have no doubt you will love it here. We especially love the house in the peaceful early-morning hours when the light is glorious and the birds are singing!
