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

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

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.

• 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

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.

We arrived after a long day of travel with our two kids and breathed easy. We knew immediately that we had chosen right. The other reviewers are right; the pictures are totally accurate and if anything, don't fully convey the beauty of this home..The decor is artistic, thoughtful, fitting with the landscape. The house is convenient, but looking out over the vast reserve with the sea beyond, one has the feeling of being very far away from it all. Just try lying on the hammock on the porch and thinking once about work! The house is very well stocked and we found it comfortable in every way. The owners are also easy to reach with questions and Miriam is super helpful. It is in a real neighborhood. If you're looking for a resort experience, this is not it. For us, the neighborhood added a great deal to the experience and we enjoyed meeting our neighbors (and their horses). Highly recommend.

Staying at Perri's place was a phenomenal experience. Vieques itself was a great destination but staying at Perri's definitely made our week even better, I cannot imagine staying anywhere else on the island. We arrived early on our check-in day and were able to drop our bags before starting to explore the island. The house was exactly as advertised and the interior was as beautiful as the views. The balconies off the first floor and second floor bedroom are awesome and have unbelievable views. She had beach chairs, cooler, and towels which made going to the beach really easy. The grill made it so easy to make dinner on nights we didn't feel like eating out. Additionally, Perri's informational pack was so helpful in navigating the stores, markets, restaurants on the island. If you're planning a trip to Vieques defintiely stay at Perri's place. We can't wait to go back.

The pictures do not even begin to do this house justice. This place is absolutely beautiful, secluded yet accessible, authentic with all the comforts home (including Wi-Fi and more importantly, scrabble!). My friends and I, 5 years out of college, were looking for a spring break out of the ordinary and we definitely found that in Vieques. The house is sandwiched between two sleepy towns (Esperanza and Isabel II) almost equidistant. Esperanza, the larger of the two, lights up at night with music emanating from the bars and restaurants on the main drag. We had amazing food experiences in Esperanza, Belly Buttons for breakfast, Duffy’s for lunch and dinner and El Quenepo for a special, more expensive night out (Get the Mofongo!!!). There were several other places suggested that we just didn’t have time for. Both Miriam and Perri offered amazing recommendations for beaches and we found Blue Beach (Bahia La Chiva) to be our favorite but tried to go to as many beaches as possible. We also frequented the W Hotel several times post-beach for a little late afternoon sun and drinks by their infinity pools. Renting a car is mandatory, but affordable! You can be virtually anywhere on the island in 10-20 minutes. It was well worth the money. Miriam was great in preparation for our arrival and was very responsive to queries via text and phone. This vacation practically ran itself, which I think is a testament to the property, the DeFinos and Miriam. I will definitely be coming back!

This house was stunning, better than the pictures, and we had an incredible time! We were so happy with our choice to stay at Perri and Jamie's, and will without a doubt stay here again when we return. My only wish was that we had stayed longer, so we could have spent an entire day just enjoying the house and spectacular views! Love!

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!
