Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Vieques - Villa Altamira
Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
Welcome to Villa Altamira! This is your private get-a-way in paradise. Situated on a large private lot with spectacular panoramic views of the ocean, gorgeous sunsets and the distant lights of Puerto Rico. Expansive panoramic ocean views surround you. On clear days you can see the Mainland, St. Thomas and Culebra. You can enjoy the whole house including several decks and outdoor areas for relaxing. The rooftop patio has lots of room to lay out or watch the twinkle of the harbor lights and mainland. The Villa is designed for three level living. Everyone will be able to find a quiet spot to relax and enjoy the view, read or sleep in their hammock outside. For the Winter 2014 Season we have continued to upgrade the Villa. We have just completed a full renovation of the ground floor with new walk-in shower, ceramic tile flooring and stone sink and vanity. Extensive landscaping completed over the last several years is now fully grown and lush. The entire grounds is now enveloped in beautiful tropical vegetation, fruits and flowers.
A fully private free-form pool with waterfall is great for cooling off. The pool was resurfaced in 2012 and features accent lighting for lounging in the evenings. Enjoy the cool breeze-filled nights in the fully screened bedrooms. Newly added air conditioning in each bedroom will cool off those particularly hot days. Better yet spend the day and the beach and the afternoons by the pool. Explore the island then return to your home base Villa Altamira.
The Villa's floorplan is explained in detail on our web site www.villaaltamira.com. It is a three level Caribbean style villa with a rooftop patio. The ground floor is a private en-suite style living space with its own entrance. Perfect for family or friends who prefer additional privacy. This level connects to the rest of the villa via outside steps.
The island of Vieques is for those who enjoy pristine uncrowded beaches still unspoiled by crowds of tourists, good local groceries, and stunning natural beauty. The world famous 'Bioluminescent Bay' is a popular nature attraction. Many local restaurants offer wonderful food and entertainment. Night lifers need not apply as there are no casinos or crowds here.
Villa Altamira's architecture is traditional Carribean. The property offers luscious caribbean landscaping and ten-foot high ceilings as well as beautiful Spanish ceramic tile floors. The open, airy feeling of the house is enhanced by the large living room, French doors and expansive 12 X 28 foot outdoor deck and tiered design.
What is best here is that you can enjoy the best of Spanish and Caribbean culture while still feeling safe that you are on US territory. Do not forget all Puerto Ricans are US citizens so no problems with visas, customs or monetary change.

Greetings from San Marcos, Texas!
Hello Karen & John,
I just wanted to take a few minutes to say thank you for a wonderful location to have our family get together. The only complaint from all, was that time was too short. The layout of the Villa gave everyone 'their space ' and yet be together. Pineapple stole our grandson heart. He was missing his two cats at home in Madison, WI. Now, he wants to return to the Villa to visit his new best friend.
We will do this again and we will stay at the Villa. I organize trips for women and I think your place would be ideal.
Again, thank you for a wonderful experience, XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi John and Karen,
We have arrived to our little slice of paradise, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. This is a gorgeous house in an amazing location. We are so thankful to you for making this possible for us, and appreciate all the efforts you have made to keep the property so beautiful. We went to Red Beach today, but waited maybe too long as we got there around 1:30 and the sea was a bit rough. Did get to stand and enjoy a school of angel fish for a while. ( : Tomorrow, we are off to Mosquito Pier. Yay!
Annette was great, so welcoming and so helpful. My kids are LOVING the pool, my son LOVES the hammock, and Joe and I LOVE it all. We have found our way into town, but I’d read that there is a small beach close to the house where we can walk down and snorkel. Can you let me know where that is?
Anyway, we have 5 more days of glory, and will be sure to post a glowing review very soon!
Thanks so much,
