Adjacent to the Nature Reserve, on a hilltop in Barrio Monte Carmelo; sleeps up to 6 with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, 3 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, washer & dryer.

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 time there as much as we do!
Jamie & Perri purchased this House in 2006
Why Jamie & Perri chose Vieques
We love our mountain-top location with it's constant breezes and and unstoppable views of the Nature Reserve, the sea & 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, the sea & 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

You feel like home
The house is really beautiful, it's special. We liked the furniture, the ceramic floor tiles, the bathrooms, the space, the view.
The owner Perri is very helpful, we coudn't rent a car in Vieques, because all the cars were rented out. Perri organized for us a little golfcart. In a 10 minutes ride from the village we arrived to his nice house, and with a 30 minutes ride we found some really lonesome dreambeaches.
The island sufferd a lot from the hurracan last year and for that the electricity doens't work as it should be. The housmanager Noal, a very sympathic person, gave us some strong ligthts, so we had no the electricity problem.
You will enjoy a 100% staying in this unique house in Vieques!
Thanks so much Thomas, you and your family were very gracious guests! We're so glad you enjoyed your time here despite the island-wide power outage. While it can happen, it isn't the norm and you were a trooper! Welcome back anytime and enjoy the rest of your Caribbean adventure!
Super nice place to stay
We really appreciated staying here each night, especially after 8 hours of volunteering on the island this was a terrific place to kick our feet up and relax. I would have given it 5 stars, because the place deserves it, but the listing confused me a little bit. It was unclear to me by viewing the listing that we would not have access to a second bedroom nor did it state that the entrance to the second and third bedrooms is through a separate outside entrance, something that should be important to families. Otherwise, this place is a perfect place to enjoy the island and I highly recommend it.
Hi Dan, thanks so much for all your kind words. We couldn’t be happier that you enjoyed the house. I do apologize about your limited access to the second or third bedrooms. I guess I assumed that since you were 2 people that you were a couple. BUT couple or not, you would have been most welcome to use another bedroom had we known you needed it. When there’s more that 2 people staying with us we always tell them about the layout of the house without fail, particularly if guests are traveling with children. We would much rather lose a reservation than have an unhappy guest. But I see now, that I should not make assumptions that 2 people need only 1 bedroom and will ask when making arrangements going forward.
I would like to thank you for volunteering on our beautiful island where so many still need help from good people like yourselves. Have a great holiday! Best, Perri
We've travel many places from US to Europe but this was absolutely one of the best !!
After this trip I clearly know how my dream house looks like. This was it!! We loved every single square foot of this place.. spectacular view from both master bedroom and terrace, spacious rooms, incredible design of the whole house! We had everything we could dream of! We even found snorkeling equipment and many different things for swimming that made our stay only better and more enjoyable. And that grill.. I simply can't skip that part. We enjoyed that so much that we didn't want to go out for a dinner, all we did just bought fresh fish from the port and grilled it at home with sweet potato from local food track. This house has absolutely everything for unforgettable and enjoyable stay. Now, we dream to come back ! Because is was amazing!
Aw, Angelika, You are kind and sweet. We are so happy that you had such a nice time at the house. We'll be looking forward to your next visit!
This house is absolutely gorgeous and the interior design is impeccable. A real gem! Thanks to Perri for a beautiful experience. We'll be in touch in the near future!
Looking forward to it, Brent. I'm so glad you had a nice birthday! Thanks so much for your kind words.
Beautiful and relaxing house
We just got back from a relaxing vacation in Vieques where we had stayed at Casa El Dormilon. The house is well situated on top of a hill which provides a beautiful view of the lush greenery of the island as well as the sea in the distance. It has a large terrace, a BBQ grill, outdoor seating. The interior is beautifully done with mosaic tiles and loads of character. The owners have done a wonderful job of creating a chic but comfortable vacation home. The kitchen is well equipped with fridge, stove, microwave, plates, utensils, etc. There are beach chairs and umbrella and sand toys which was great to have. And finally, the house is incredibly secure- the doors have multiple locks and the windows can shut down, making the house literally impossible to get into.
We have already recommended this house to our friends and would come back again! Hopefully soon!
Thank you, Elham, for your very generous review! We do hope you'll come back and we'll do all that we can to insure that you and your family have a wonderful time!
Perfect, as always!
Our third stay at the house, and we sure hope to come back. Our favorite destination in the Caribbean, no question. Perfect for a romantic getaway (done), for a trip with kids (done) and for a relaxing vacation with friends (done). Great hosts, no issues. We love D House
Thanks, Daniel! You guys are the best and are ALWAYS welcome. We will continue to to do the best we can to earn your stars! xo
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!
