Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Vieques
Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 5, Sleeps 6
Los Arcos, Completed in 2008, overlooks the Caribbean and Esperanza Bay from one of the most beautiful spots on the island of Vieques. The design was inspired by the great castles of Spain, with 18-inch thick concrete walls and huge, thick archways that separate the open-plan interior spaces. Los Arcos is a new home but looks like it could have been sitting on this hill for centuries.
Amenities include perhaps the nicest view on the island of Vieques and one of the best in the Caribbean, complete with the outdoor living spaces. Deep, wide, shaded, travertine-tiled balconies face the ocean with comfortable furniture and natural seating areas exposing views through arched openings and receiving constant breezes from the trade winds. Step off the balcony from the main house or the guest villa and step right into the solar heated infinity pool, with a bench and tables built in, also facing the views. Cushioned lounge chairs dot the balcony offering comfort and serenity to enjoy the vistas.
Throughout the house the walls facing the ocean have folding glass doors which open to bring the outside in. Although the furniture is high-end, it is not fussy or delicate or uninviting. The owners brought in pieces from India, Morocco, China and Mexico to fill the house with color and texture reflecting their interest in world craftwork and a comfortable, casual island lifestyle.
To the old they added the new with every possible convenience and comfort. There's a huge, fully outfitted "cook's kitchen", a large-screen plasma TV with DISH programming and a Blue Ray DVD player, air conditioned bedrooms, wireless Internet, and a whole-house audio system that lets guests select their own music and volume from the digital house library, or bring an iPod and hear it in any, or every room at the same time.
This Vieques Island rental house has three "master/guest suites", each with a king bed, private bath, indoor and outdoor shower, and folding glass doors that open to the ocean views. Two of the suites are in the separate Guest Wing and the third is within the Main House and all are of a similar quality with similar amenities. There are also wooden hangers for your clothing in all of the closets, and in room safes for any valuables you wish to store. Other spaces include the living room, media room, office, dramatic center-domed-cathedral-ceiling dining room, and pool bar.
The grounds are magnificent with many varieties of palm trees and colorful, tropical flowers galore. There is an orchard at the rear of the property where you are invited to pick fresh bananas, mangoes, star fruit, limones, and anything that might be in season during your visit.
Beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and thermoses are provided if you do decide to leave your private paradise to visit one of the many nearby sandy Vieques beaches. Los Arcos is a house that our guests return to year after year because of the magical design and location. There are many havens within the estate where views of the Caribbean are perfect, the breeze is sublime, and you feel lucky just to be here. This elegant Caribbean Estate on six acres overlooking the southern Caribbean coast is the perfect place to relax with friends and families creating lifelong dreams...

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a wonderful time and the weather was great! The house is beautiful and well appointed. Everything you need is there and the kitchen was very well equipped. We shopped in the garden for papaya, mango, bananas, and star fruit. The tropical flowers are too numerous to list, by far the largest birds of paradise we had ever seen. The pool was a joy! We hope to return soon!
