About Pete Jamieson

Hi! We're Pete and Laura! We met each other in 2007 off of a posting for a shared space in Somerville, Massachusetts and haven't looked back.

We love to travel, we love amazing food, and we love music. We found paradise in Vieques, Puerto Rico and decided to purchase a rental property on the north side of the island.

Why Pete Jamieson chose Vieques Island

Our property, Dulce Sueno, is probably our favorite place on the planet. When you're there, you're instantly relaxed. The property is located on a hilltop, which comes with two amazing benefits : 1) beautiful views of the Caribbean, mainland Puerto Rico and Culebra; and 2) a continuous sea breeze which immediately puts you at ease.

What makes this house unique

Besides the amazing views and the sea breezes, Dulce Sueno is a beautiful, well-designed home. Our favorite feature by far is the deck overlooking the Caribbean and wetland valley. We both work demanding jobs and found the best way to unwind is to sit out on the deck or in the front yard with a book, a beverage, and a snack!

Dulce Sueno is close to Isabella II and ten minutes away from Esperanza and south beaches, but it stands apart because it's secluded and above all, quiet!

Amazing view, great value, comfy, needs a couple of changes

  • 4 of 5

I loved this house from the moment I entered. And I have to say that Betty & Miles, the managers, were amazing people to work with and were incredibly helpful to us. The place is amazing for views, other people we were with that came by agreed, and usually wanted to stay a bit at night with us just to gaze at the stars. It is centrally located, especially if you want to be near town, Isabel II. Rooms were comfy, and the house had everything you may want or need in a stay in Vieques. Now, the reason why this isn't a 5. Not all 4 rooms have AC, 1 does not which it actually it is not the reason for the -star because it is upstairs and it does get very breezy. But downstairs, were it is not breezy and you need the A/C, one of the A/Cs was not really cooling. Lastly, we had issues with the hot water. It sometimes worked perfectly, others it took like 5-10 mins to "warm up". Upstairs shower, we never got the hot water working. With that said, I think it can easily be fixed, and I would TOTALLY recommend this place, and will consider renting it again!

Owner's Response: Hi Allyson, Thank you so much for your review and for being such a great guest! Just wanted to follow up on the A/C issue - that A/C unit was replaced. There was a delay in getting an A/C unit to the island around your stay because it was during the holidays. Everything slows down on Vieques! As far as the water issue, thank you for bringing that to our attention! We didn't hear from our guests that the hot water was an issue, but we will certainly make sure everything is working correctly. Again, thanks for the feedback! We would love to have you back at Dulce Sueno! Best, Pete.

Just walk out on to the back porch...

  • 5 of 5

10 to 15 minutes away tops from just about every place you would want to go on the island. Air conditioners in just about every bedroom. Each bedroom was a nice size and very comfortable to stay in. Fully operational washer, dryer, just about every kitchen appliance you would need for your stay. Excellent front and back yard for games. Noise was not an issue, whether making it or hearing it from the neighbors this spot proved to be very secluded in that sense.

The quintessential moment that sold me on this house happened within the first two minutes of entering the property and was repeated many times through out each day of our stay. Stepping out on to the porch you will notice a grill and comfortable outside furniture to enjoy a nice breakfast or to read a book while laying down between being at the beach during the day and going out at night. So there's that… but then there's perhaps one of best views of Vieques (or of anywhere) you could possibly imagine... the cascades of trees, the unique and colorful architecture of other beautiful properties interspersed throughout them and just beyond all of this is a horizon of endless ocean; it's like your eyes are the frame for one of the most beautiful landscape photos or paintings one could ever imagine. You're not at blistering high altitudes here, but just high enough to be provided with a great vantage point to see the on-goings of the island.

Just talking about it makes me wish I was back there. This house is the perfect spot to relax in between visiting the most gorgeous beaches on this side of the Caribbean and some of best restaurants and bars I have ever been to.

If you plan on visiting here with family or just a group of your friends you won't find a more comfortable place to stay. Will most definitely be staying there again.
