Puerto Real Villa Rental Photos and Description

Panoramic Caribean and Bay Views and Gentle Trade Winds await. Sleeps 10-12.

Paradise unfolds... Fragrant flowers, tropical fruit and acres of lawn make up the surroundings at Villa Vista Linda. The driveway is lined with hibiscus shrubs, bougainvillea, oleanders, fragrant plumeria trees and other lush, tropical flowering plants and trees. The scent of gardenias and the beauty of orchids abound. You have arrived at Vista Linda.

Located in Pilon, in west-central Vieques, this gated private estate offers spectacular views of the southern coast of the island towards the Caribbean Sea. Well worth its name...Vista Linda! (Beautiful View).

Enjoy a peaceful, private vacation experience in a style of graceful tropical elegance. Within the six-acre estate is the Villa proper. The upper floor houses the main living areas with its 20-foot high ceilings and cooling ocean breezes. Venture out into the veranda and take in the gorgeous view. Festive dinners for up to 12 people can be held at the long French Country dining table. And afterwards, settle in for an after dinner drinks or coffee in one of the cozy sitting areas.

The lower level or Terraza offers more possibilities. Bright, open and airy, the arched columns and filigreed ironwork let fresh breezes blow through for true alfresco living. Lounge with a cool drink from the Coqui Cabana Bar or enjoy lunch or a sunset dinner from within the Terraza or Poolside.

The crown jewel of the estate is the gorgeous pool with its spectacular unobstructed and expansive views of the southern coast including Mt. Pirata - the highest peak on the island.

Set apart from the villa and adjoining the terraza and pool is the Casita, a charming small house with its own living room, kitchen/dining area and beautifully appointed bath.

Among the available sleeping accommodations are the master bedroom and 3 guestrooms in the Villa, and a private suite in the Casita.

The villa's spacious master bedroom combines a feeling of luxury with a sense of the tropics. Tall, richly finished teakwood doors and antique wood furnishings add to the effect. Cooling sea breezes can be enjoyed during any season and guests can sleep in air conditioned comfort if desired.

A 7 foot round tub is the centerpiece of the master bathroom, perfect for the ultimate bubble bath! As you lay there relaxing, you can gaze out through the wall of glass louvered windows at the lush green forest beyond. Also featured are dual sinks, a glass stand-up shower, and a bidet.

The Villa features three more bedrooms in addition to the Master bedroom. Two bedrooms are at the opposite end of the villa across the great room. The first offers a queen bed and the second has two full-size beds. Each bedroom has ample closet space and together the rooms share a large and well appointed bathroom between them. The third bedroom is located on the first floor of the Villa and has a queen sized bed, it's own entrance and private bath.

The Casita bedroom features a queen bed and and a beautifully appointed bathroom. There is a daybed in the living room which will sleep one adult or two children quite comfortably.

Vista Linda is the perfect choice for your Caribbean getaway, a quiet vacation retreat, family reunions or special gathering of friends.

You have a choice of booking 3-bedrooms (Main House), 4-bedrooms (Main House plus the Coqui Suite) or 5 bedrooms (the entire property; Main House plus the Coqui Suite plus the Casita). Including the Casita, Vista Linda provides 10,00 Square feet of living space under roof.

"Best Wedding Ever!"

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter just had (in her words) "the best wedding ever" at Villa Vista Linda. We looked at just about every possible place to have a destination wedding on Vieques and nowhere compared to VVL for charm, privacy, natural beauty, and stunning views. As another reviewer said, the place has WOW factor galore. At the same time, it's not so fussy and fancy that people can't relax and feel at home. It easily accommodated our 85 guests for a ceremony on the lawn, cocktails by the pool, and dinner and dancing in the first floor entertainment area.

Ten of us spent a week at the villa before and after the wedding -- swimming in the huge pool, enjoying the breeze on the upstairs balcony, shooting game after game of pool. The villa and its grounds are so big that we could spread out and have private time, too. The bride and groom stayed in the casita where they had their own little love nest. The villa is a short drive from the restaurants and bars in Esperanza as well as Tin Box, Noche, and the Next Course. The "Green Store" market is nearby, too.

Karen, the property manager, bent over backwards to make sure that the wedding and our stay in general were just perfect. She was on call 24/7 for troubleshooting and questions. I'm tempted to call her right now and book our next stay!

Villa Vista Linda exceeded expectations. Beautiful, spacious home, easily accommodating our party of 10. Incredible views from all parts of the house and the grounds to enjoy sunrise and sunset over Esparanza and the Carribean; elevation provided for wonderful Carribean breezes all day long. Perfect location providing for easy access to all parts of Vieques with a short drive. Highly recommend renting this beautiful home.

Stunner of a Hillside Estate

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for that WOW factor in a vacation home you will find it in Vista Linda! Surrounded by luscious landscaping you enter the property already in awe of what is to come. The main floor is al fresco with easy access to the pool and bar. We enjoyed lounging there in the evening as the property gets a wonderful breeze. The stunner of a staircase lazily winds to the second story where you enter the great room. The great room has a luxurious comfort with its vaulted ceilings and overstuffed furniture. The kitchen is massive and is stocked full of dinner and cookware for a large party. I should mention this is one of three kitchens.The bedrooms are lovely and comfortable. I should also mention there is plenty of bathroom space if you have the need with a larger party. The washer and dryer came in handy more than once and can really reduce the amount of packing needed for your trip. There is also a lovely guest house which was not necessary for our smaller group but a perfect "away" space for the bride and groom for a wedding party. The property is very clean and well maintained.

Karen M. who serves as caretaker is so kind and helpful. She made sure we were comfortable and she was immediately available if we needed her. There should be more Karens in the world!

The property is well situated with only a short drive to the gorgeous beaches, the Malecon in Esparanza and the many restaurants and bars. There you can find great casual eateries to gourmet dining. Even closer than the Malecon you can find fantastic dining at Next Course and Tin Box.

I would not hesitate to come here again, it truly feels like a home away from home.

Movie Star Palace

  • 5 of 5

The listing photos simply can't do this property justice! Tucked away in a seemingly mundane neighborhood, one passes along the drive toward an automated gating system--opened/closed by remote control--and winds along the drive through six acres of land toward the property. The large open area of the first floor invites with easy-to-keep-clean stone tile and a bar-height table. You almost feel like a movie star as you pass through the area and onto the pool deck. The beautiful pool maintained perfect temperature for early evening dips throughout the week. Ascending the winding Hollywood staircase (perfect for weddings, BTW) and through the massive wood doors at the top brings an indescribable feeling of luxury! Then, you enter the astonishingly large great room and all prior notions of heaven recede into memory. The lanai off the great room provided cool evening breezes for pondering the stars at night and cool morning breezes to watch the sunrise over Sun Bay and Mosquito Bay (there are virtually no mosquitoes most of the time). The bedrooms could be left open to the soothing air most nights and the coqui (tree frogs) sang us to sleep. The master bath can comfortably sleep eight in the Jacuzzi, but otherwise provides a comfortable and private way to clean up from the day's activities. There are many kitchens in the main house and "guest" house, poolside showers, and really too many amenities to mention that helped make this a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The only downside was having to return to the mainland.

Instant Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

You only need to show up, set down your gear and sit for your vacation to begin here! We didn’t go through that ‘adjustment’ period typical when visiting a new destination. We just felt the peaceful comfort right from the start. A good chunk of the credit for this goes to the great service and communication from the manager, and manager’s agent, who make sure you arrive and settle in without any issues.

As for the property itself, it is in a very private setting and location (away from the downtown areas), yet superbly located with great views of the ocean and easy access to everything, especially the beaches. The house is well equipped and superbly furnished with everything you could possibly need.

We are a family of 6 with kids ranging in age from 8-17 yrs, and we rarely vacation in the same spot twice, but this is our rare exception where all members of the family unanimously want to return – there is something good here that just doesn’t wear out.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

What an exquisite and memorable experience was our stay at Vista Linda!

We were a family group of 12 together to honor our parents and to celebrate our baby sister’s 50th birthday. All the descriptions provided in the website about Vista Linda stay short when you really experience your stay there. Karen is a wonderful host that really welcomes you to the villa and makes sure you feel at home before she leaves. Vista Linda has a beautiful history that you can learn about from a book provided in the house. They also provide a book with all the trees and fruits available on site. Our family made fun of waking up every morning searching around to see what fruits they would find. We ate fresh and sweet mangoes and quenepas. We walked around all the outside premises enjoying the hills, trees and flowers. During one night, the young crowd of 20’s, around five of them, laid down on the outside lawn to enjoy the starry night while all lights were out. We enjoyed the outside of the house as much as we did the inside!

Inside the house everything is gorgeous, comfortable and with plenty, plenty of space. The house is well maintained and taken care of. I slept in the master bedroom with the sliding door open all night (everything is gated), with the beautiful breeze all night long hitting your face and the sound of nature sounding like a lullaby; it was like a dream from which you would not want to wake up. My family enjoyed the pool table which they kept using every night. My brother-in-law is a chef and did all the cooking. He was pleasantly surprised of how well equipped the kitchens were with all the necessary utensils to cook.

I really would like to visit Vista Linda again. In the meantime, I will recommend it wholeheartedly. Is an experience that will last forever!
