Overview

Villa Borinquen Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

If you are looking for a romantic getaway to a tropical Caribbean paradise, a special honeymoon destination, or just a place to relax and reconnect with nature and your loved ones...this 2 Bedroom hilltop villa is the ideal sanctuary, only a few hours from New York. This is the perfect place to take deep breaths, relax and connect to the natural world.

Travelers come to Vieques seeking to gentle breezes, pristine palm-lined beaches and a slower pace of life. At 360º Vieques discover all of this, along with a gracious sense of calm and tranquility.

This minimalist, escapist retreat situated on a hilltop has 360º panoramic views of the picturesque ocean, the lush protected forest, and the islands of Puerto Rico, St John, St Thomas and St Croix.

A newly constructed modern home with a simple and clean lined design. The house features two bedrooms, a bathroom with rain shower, fully equipped granite kitchen and small inside lounge area. From the large open-air living/dining area steps lead down to a comfortable pool deck and the infinity pool facing the ocean. The eagles next on top of the house provides one of the best views on the island.

The master bedroom, with breathtaking ocean views, has a queen size bed and French doors opening out to a private deck. The second bedroom has two twin beds.

Spectacular sunrises over the nature reserve as you do your morning yoga on the deck. The wild horses will wander up from the reserve and greet you as you are getting ready to head to explore the many secluded beaches on what Travel and Leisure calls 'The Best Island of the Caribbean'. You will spend your day snorkeling, diving, fishing, kayaking, kite surfing or just lounging on an unspoiled, un-crowded beach of your own.

At sunset you can swim in complete seclusion in the private salt water pool. There is an outdoor shower next to the pool.

Delight in the balmy eastern trade winds while sipping a sunset cocktail by the pool, dine al fresco under the starry skies on deck, or enjoy a romantic evening stargazing from the roof top terrace---the eagles nest.

We have just added a 2nd floor unit with one bedroom and one bath, a small living room and a kitchenette that we will offer for rent as an addition to the first floor unit -- making it ideal for two couples, or a family traveling together while still wanting some privacy.

This 2nd floor unit will only be rented as an addition to the first floor unit, and your party will always be the only guests staying at the property, and the only ones with access to the private pool.

Our house manager will greet you at the villa or if you would like, pick you up at the airport for a small fee, and bring you to the house. You will need a car and we can direct you to a number of car rental agencies on the island.

The villa was just featured on HGTVs House Hunters International.

About Owner/Manager

I am an island girl at heart. Have traveled a lot all over the world (lived in Paris, New York, Milan) but it was not until I first came to Vieques that I knew I had found my own private paradise. Vieques is the way you imagine the Caribbean must have been in the 50s. Unspoiled, friendly, and with fantastic, secluded beaches where you're more likely to run into an iguana or a turtle than other tourists. I love spending time on one of the beaches were you can leisure around in perfect privacy. I bought a shell of a house in 2009 and did some construction work. It was a cute two bedroom with a small inside living space, but as you want to spend most of your time enjoying being in the Caribbean I added lots of inside/outside living space: an infinity pool, a large outside living/dining area and a wrap around deck, to fully be able to take advantage of the amazing views from this quiet hilltop.

Why Owner/Manager chose Vieques Island

360º Vieques is a minimalist, escapist retreat situated on a hilltop with 360º panoramic views of the picturesque ocean, the lush protected forest, and the islands of Puerto Rico, Culebra, St Thomas, St john and St Croix.

It is a newly constructed modern home. This 2 bedroom villa sits on one of the highest hilltops in Vieques. This is the perfect place to take deep breaths, relax and connect to the natural world.

It is true luxury having the Largest Natural Reserve in the Caribbean right outside the window. The wild horses and the humming birds accompany you for your morning coffee on the terrace. Delight in the balmy eastern trade winds while sipping a sunset cocktail by the private pool, dine alfresco on the terrace under the starry skies, or enjoy a romantic evening stargazing from the eagles nest. A midnight dip among the liquid stars of the incredible Bio Bay is a magical experience to share with your special someone.

Very nice view

  • 5 of 5

Had a very enjoyable trip to Vieques. The location near the town was nice but still an easy drive to Esperanza. Amazing view. Very nice house, great rooftop and deck. Would recommend to any family or couple visiting the island.

Tranquil escape

  • 5 of 5

This house was a lovely and tranquil escape. It's beautiful 306 degrees around the house, especially from the roof top lounge area will never be forgotten.

Everything was serviceable and in good working order. It has everything you could need in a beach home rental. We lacked for nothing. The rental agent who met us on arrival was delightful as well and VERY helpful. We had a minor standard problem that was attended to immediately and efficiently by the care-taker and we felt they were there for us should we need them.

While it's not walking distance to anywhere, we found that to be an added bonus to our relaxation- a little enforced seclusion. I recommend this house very highly for a peaceful escape from the hectic pace of normal life.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 2 friends stayed at Vieques 360 for 5 nights in February. We all loved it and hope to go back again! The house is perfectly situated on a hill top over looking the sea. It receives wonderful breezes and is surrounded by lush green rolling hills. The interior of the house is simple and has everything one could need for an island getaway. The outdoor spaces are absolutely lovely- a terrace for eating, a swimming pool, a deck for sunbathing, a hammock for napping in shade, a crow's nest for watching the sun rise or set! What more could you ask for? The photos and description of the house are very accurate. The property is well maintained and the property managers are very helpful!

A Magical, Intoxicating Place

  • 5 of 5

This was the first trip my girlfriend and I have made to Vieques after many years of talking about going. We like to vacation in places a bit of the grid in beautiful natural settings. Last year we vacationed on Isla Mujeres off the Yucatan coast. Vieques was everything we had imagined and more. Navigating our jeep to find new beaches made every day feel like an adventure and we never stopped wondering at yet another beautiful, virtually deserted beach. It didn’t take us long to fall into the rhythm of island life. We also loved that the magnificent horses roamed free on the island along with various other species. Really hard to believe this island was so abused by the US military for so many years.

And 360Vieques is amazingly beautiful home base. It is designed for you to spend as much time out-of-doors as possible. The various decks, the beautiful pool, the views from the roof with those intoxicating breezes- sigh – all made for a memorable experience.

Both the design of the house and its physical location are really great. Besides sleeping, we spent very little time indoors. And even with sleeping, waking up to the amazing vista looking out to Caribbean made the start of every day breathtaking. Everything is made easy for the guests and we felt quite at home in no time.

It's really hard to come up with suggested improvements. Possibly having wifi, although not having access probably helped our stress levels and kept us outside more of the time.

The representation on the website is very accurate but the pictures really don’t capture the full experience. How do you capture in pictures the beautiful, warm intoxicating breezes that were a constant presence, the magnificent night sky, the changing lightscape from morning to dusk?

The property managers Annette and Dennis were perfect hosts. Annette picked us up at our car rental and gave us an orientation to the island along with her favorite spots to dine, and Dennis had the unfortunate task of taking us to drop off our car rental before heading to our flight but not before talking about his island life.

We'll definitely be back.

This House is Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I stayed at this house the first four days during our 8 day honeymoon, the other 4 days were spent at the W resort.

While the W resort was lavish and posh, we much preferred the ambiance of this beautiful house up in the hills. Staying at Vieques 360 was the highlight of our trip.

The house was every bit as amazing as it seems in the pictures. It is charming, relatively private (Just a few houses in close proximity) and captures the nature of Vieques.

The house is plenty big enough for 2-4 people and it has the most amazing pool, looking out over the whole island. The pictures really don't do justice the feeling of sitting in that beautiful pool overlooking the island and out into the ocean.

There is an unbelievable roof top deck. Perfect for sunrises, sunsets and sitting out under the stars. The bedroom has french doors overlooking the island and there is just the most soothing island breeze that constantly keeps air circulating through the house.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at this house. We were able to do our own cooking some nights (Plenty of items to use) and the management team made sure the pool was kept in pristine condition while we were there.
