Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Vieques - VIEQUES VILLA GALLEGA A16N

3 Bedrooms + extra studio (Sleeps 4-6 or 8 guests when studio is included

So I wonder if you are LOOKING FOR A vacation rental with Natural healing powers ? Magic? Many bedrooms, trees...truly close to the beach, and what about 'quietness"....privacy and.... safety? What if you want to be butt naked .... Without getting the paparazzi attention and your pix on Google the next day? Try not to think about it now....

You may, or may not, have scrolled dozens of pictures of vacation homes, haven't you? All those swimming pools right on the main picture (like you and your loved ones will sleep in it and only need a pool to enjoy a vacation on an island), and yes all of the above framed by superb and good copywriting...am I right? Houses looking pretty good or diversely interesting. Noticed and noted all the blah blah blah, don't you? What about how BIG the pool is, and the old granny's furnishing with flowers. Then compared all the prices and perhaps you are being even more confused aren't you?

Then you found us.... Oops there are no big and long swimming pool to prove a point, but someone having a real good time and resting.... Without the paparazzi....

In few words, anyone coming to this home, keeps coming back, maybe this is not the number one healing, magical, incredible, property in Vieques, but .... One fact stands, all of our guests become our friends, recommend villa gallega to family members and friends and keep coming back....since 2004....

Maybe because when you want to be on vacation, you truly want to be away from it all don't you?

I leave the rest to the usual good or not good copywriting blah blah blah or perhaps suggest to read the reviews, the good ones and those that are not good and then.... Only then you do know how to chose right don't you?

Oh our price it's a simple formula, $100 per person per night, and children count!

Here the blah blah blah

In the desirable center of Vieques, villa Gallega, is surrounded by a naked natural park, offers a ionized pure water infinity pool overlooking direct protected ocean, outdoor SPA, and park views. Villa gallega is a 3 bedroom plus a separate studio (studio is rented separately or added for a fee), architect concept villa nested on a natural private and gated Hill in the most desirable and central, quiet area of. Issues. Villa Gallega interiors are minimal, clean and the property hosts original modern artwork. The Swimming pool is a gigantic all natural stone sculpture - Entitled "men's agitat Moslem" (mind over matter). According to most reviews this property is sanctuary of serenity, peace and also perfect retreat for a free style and serene vacation. Villa Gallega is a quintessential element of privacy, peace and serenity in our friends and guests mind, whom keep coming back year after year since we took it over in 2004. A team of architects, designed this hilltop villa in the most private, peaceful, and relaxing area of Vieques. It was part of the now W resort and studied to be central but away...The property offers extra Maid service, should you wish, an outdoor hot tub. The natural and oversized sculpture/Infinity swimming pool with emerald spring water build and designed by Italian Artist Giulio Bianco, a tribute to quantum physics (the pool stones move and change shape at sight an incredible effect, theme of interesting conversations). This villa is in the most central, desirable area of Vieques, just minutes close to the most pristine beaches of Vieques. Vieques is known for wild horses, nature, natural beaches, a bio-luminescent bay, peace, relaxation. Villa Gallega offers the same charme and comfort of an Italian home, with up to four bedrooms when the studio is included, and 3 1/2 bathrooms, 2 outdoor showers, and it is built around peace, joy and colors of the Caribbean/Spanish Virgin Islands. The Villa has been furnished with original modern and minimalistic Italian pieces, offers amazing views, a Bose stereo surround sound system, Plasma TV, a good collection of movies, a Lavazza espresso maker and a lot of space to just enjoy whatever crosses your mind or pleases you and your party.

About Icarvs property management Mr.Thomas

Above one of my paintings. Nothing better than art may express who we are and heal our soul.

Villa gallega and the Studio are owned by all of us, friends, and a young Italian family from the old country. We live between New York City, San Antonio Texas, Rome Italy, Dublin Ireland, Milan and YES we meet here in Vieques. The house is coordinated by Joey and Milly a local lovely couple,,very humble and spiritual , with two well mannered daughters. villa gallega is managed exclusively by ICARVS LLC New York, a discerning boutique like property management with offices in Wall Street, New York and in the magical Ancient Rome (so close to the Vatican you can feel the blessing).

I am a Shrink and an artist, I love to study, read my books on mind healing,, paint, write and in Vieques I come to get inspired and meet special friends. I've been told that this house has a healing energy, I believe it is surrounded by peace and joy, but mostly it is surrounded by the power of love. It makes me, my friends and our guests happy, we come here to compose songs, write books and paint. Vieques Is to me a healing sanctuary, it's simple, low key, and still humble and down to earth.

Icarvs property management Mr.Thomas purchased this villa in 2004

Why Icarvs property management Mr.Thomas chose Vieques

Above all the natural colors of the views, an immense gigantism healing constantly changing painting! Then our privacy, the infinite space, that morning and sunset healing sun light, the natural beauty of the protected natural park surrounding the house, the stones and natural materials that built this home, the peace of the surroundings, then the advantage of owning a hill, the central location on one hand and on the other the peace and serenity of the area. All we see from our windows are trees, ocean, sky, colorful birds and ... The mirror of the universe filled with the brightest stars you can not even imagine. It is like shifting into another dimension.

What makes this villa unique

Its like being in an Island on the Island. As most of our guests say it is therapy for the mind, peaceful, serene, quiet, safe and oasis of calmness. Perfect to write a book a script, paint, write music, read books, do yoga, swim, be naked, or just watch the stars. When we are home, we never want to leave, we invite friends for wine and dinner on the deck or to enjoy a barbecue while one of us sings, play an instrument or just tells fairy tales,

Amazing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property is an outstanding retreat. We had never been to Vieques before, so were not sure what to expect. This is clearly one of the nicest properties on the island. The views are amazing, the outdoor areas just perfect, and the house itself modern and very well appointed. We would love to stay here again.

We thought we rented a four bedroom, but only were given access to three. It was no problem for our family of five, but if you are looking to sleep more than five, you might want to clarify what you are getting, as the lower level I'd apparently a separate rental.

That said, we loved our stay. We were delighted with this property and would love to stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback and precious imput. We would love to have you back again. The studio unit is a separated apartment, right in front of the swimming pool (therefore locked and not recommended when children are present) but Available for a fee. Our New York office has agreed to a family reduced rate and discount and We did remove the Studio to fit your budged. Should having the studio open would please you even more please consider it included the next time you visit. It was a joy to have you and your children and we truly appreciate your kindness and feedback. Alexandra

Incredibly relaxing with available adventures

  • 5 of 5

We travel extensively and feel we have found the perfect home away from home. The villa is gorgeous, clean, private, and offered incredible views. My husband and I were able to have our own romantic space while our teens swam in the gorgeous pool. We found ourselves engaged with the island--from cooking food purchased at the farmer's market, to eating several great meals at the restaurant located at the bottom of the drive, to visiting many gorgeous, private beaches, to purchasing artwork at local galleries. A car is a must. The villa caretakers Joey and his wife were fantastic; Dondi treated us to awesome snorkeling with sea turtles and a magical biobay tour. Laurent was incredibly helpful. We will return--hopefully frequently!

We had the time of our lives!

  • 5 of 5

I rarely write reviews but this gorgeous villa is just too beautiful and I believe it is my responsibility to spread the word. This is the only vacation we've ever had where we almost never left the villa during our entire stay. The place is just beautiful. The whole house was well maintained and fully equipped. The view is picturesque (for lack of a better word). Unobstructed, 360 views! The pool was majestic. Everything was perfect! If you haven't decided on where to stay, choose this place and you will definitely have the time of your life!

I'm in love.... This house far exceeded my expectations - relaxing, private, luxurious and comfortable. No detail has been left to chance. It's definitely the very best Vieques has to offer.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

Most relaxing vacation I have had in years!! This peaceful and beautiful retreat was exactly what I was looking for. The house is open and airy, the living space has giant sliding glass doors that we left open while at the house (no bugs!!) We found some great restaurants, but cooked several meals at the house. We found a couple of great places to buy groceries- a green market, a fish market and a place that sold homemade sausage. The house has two grills- one gas and one charcoal.... We went to a different beach every day and were the only people at most of them. The BioBay tour was a real highlight too. I definitely recommend this house and this island!

Dreaming of Vieques

  • 5 of 5

I spent the 4th of July week at this property for one of the most relaxing vacations I've experienced in years. The villa is stunning with unobstucted views of the Atlantic Ocean from nearly every room, including the bathroom. Artistically designed the house is so relaxing that you can spend the entire vacation without leaving the villa. The infinity edge pool is both relaxing and refreshing, especially after a long day at one of the incredibly beautiful beaches on the island. There's also an inviting hot tub

The location is ideal, everything you need is within 15-20 minutes. Convenient to grocery stores, a 10 minute trip to town, a five minute trip to a weekly roadside market, and a 10 minute drive to great beaches.

The staff is knowledgeable and attentive. They know the island and can provide information on any thing you might want including where to eat and where to buy local seafood to cook in the property's outdoor kitchen located conviently beside the pool.

The property offers so much...it is completely private located high above the island-one of my fondest memories was sitting by the pool watching fireworks launched from the beach. If you go with a group don't fight over the master, the studio and the main floor bedroom have great deck access and stunning sky and oceanviews.

So relaxing and peaceful, you will not want to leave.

This is the only property in the core of the Island, that is totally quiet, peaceful, serene and private BUT a snap away from the multicolored beaches, the trendy W resort, cozy restaurants. It is the house loved by artists, musicians, writers, producers, philosophers, singers, performers, athletes and people looking for serenity and direct contact with mother nature.

Viilla gallega is a definitely the most Serene way to experience a real freestyle vacation, with or without clothes. Most guest defintet it a sanctuary in this unique peaceful Caribbean Island. The swimming pool is a gigantic natural stone sculpture by Artist Mike G Bianco. It is designed to be chemicals free, (we NEVER use muriatic acids, chemical stabilizers, harsh mixtures to purify our water or to keep it clear), the water is so clean and free that is drinkable. We spend thousands to change the water, we never keep the same water for decades and your skin will fee refreshed and smooth after every swim.

Our pool is totally built with 5000 years fossil stones and uses a unique system to keep the water fresh and natural. The villa can be enjoyed with its 4 bedrooms of which are 2 master suites offering enchanted views, privacy and room to rest, write, sleep, or meditate.
