Overview

About the property

Villa - 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

The Reefhouse is the perfect peaceful Caribbean island getaway. Overlooking the ocean, the Reefhouse has panoramic views and is surrounded by tropical gardens. Enjoy sitting on the patio with the sound of the surf and the rustling palm trees, while watching the local fisherman and sailboats. There is plenty of seating for al fresco dining. And in the evening you can enjoy the spectacular sunsets in perfect tropical weather, any month of the year.

The Reefhouse is decorated in casual Caribbean style. The kitchen is fully equipped. Good beds with high thread count 100% cotton linens. The living room has a TV, lots of games and a well stocked library. With hairdryer, beach towels, beach chairs and toys, sun hats, coolers and beach bags, all you need to bring is yourself and your friends and family! Wifi on the deck with the sound of the waves.

The ocean is just below the house across a small shore road. An excellent swimming and snorkeling beach is just a few minutes walk away. Vieques has, according to Forbes Magazine, 'some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean'.

In Vieques there are no traffic lights and no casinos, but there are friendly people and an abundance of great restaurants. It is home to one of the best bioluminescent bays in the world.

Vieques is a small US owned island between Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Vieques is affordable and easy to get to by a 20 minute plane ride from San Juan, Puerto Rico or by 1 1/2 hour ferry ride from Fajardo, Puerto Rico. We can help with any travel arrangements if you would like, and we have a property manager who will meet you at the airport or ferry and ensure your stay is problem free.

About Joshua Ewing

We're two families who own the house together, and when we're not there are happy to have others enjoy Vieques at our home away from home.

Joshua Ewing purchased this villa in 2003

What makes this villa unique

So close to the turquoise water with the constant sound of the waves. Watching the pelicans fly along the curl of the waves, the fishermen out in early morning, the frigate birds soaring, the ferries coming and going. Iguanas sunbathing on a tree above the water.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hola! Thanks so much for this fabulous house. We enjoyed everything about Vieques – surf just out the door, snorkeling in Green Beach, kayaking near Esperanza, lush drives on remote roads and all the horses. It was perfect.

Great house, location and views

  • 4 of 5

Patio has great view. Twin beds were a little uncomfortable but queens were super comfy. House had everything you could need. We were 3 adults and 3 kids and were very comfortable.

Tranquil and close to town

  • 4 of 5

We loved our 2 days of sunshine, beach exploration and biobay tour. Rent a jeep to enjoy the island to the fullest since the best beaches are at either ends of the island and the other main town of Esperanza is worth exploring on the south side of the island. The views are fabulous, the bedding is comfy (love the foam top) and the tropical shower in the master suite bathroom is wonderful. The kitchen is well supplied and even had many of the basics already on hand. (I especially appreciated the sharp knives since we are big veggie and salad eaters.) Didn't give 5 stars since the furniture and house is a bit dated.

Great spot with amazing water view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (three college-age kids) was very comfortable at Reef House. Continuous ocean breezes and the unbroken ocean view distinguish this property, which is very private (set above and back from the street) -- yet feeling a part of the local vibe, with occasional pedestrians and horseback riders (or just horses!) passing by but very little vehicular traffic. We rented a Jeep and enjoyed Isabel II (a minute down the road) and Esperanza, (15 minutes) along with our favorite beaches (there are so many to choose from!) all within an easy and scenic drive. It was great to discover Vieques with Reef House as home base.

The view and nights on the veranda make it all worth it!

  • 4 of 5

We must admit that we had to adjust our expectations upon arrival. The house was smaller and bit more "rustic" than what we had expected. But we soon learned that was the case with many things on this beautiful island. And as far as homes on this island go, The Reef House offers a spectacular view, great location and mid-to-higher tier of accommodation relative to other places on the island.

Overall, the home is a perfect place to enjoy your adventures on Vieques. The A/C in the bedroom is a life-saver (we stayed in July/August). It did take some adjusting to get used to the non-AC throughout the remainder of the home. The verandah/outdoor patio was perfectly appointed with comfortable chairs and two large tables that are great for outdoor dining. The awning is a nice touch to get out of the heat. The bugs of course are an issue but this is the case everyone on the island. We appreciated the basket of bug spray provided and brought some of our own.

The kitchen had everything we needed in the way of dishes, serving platters, tupperware and more. The fridge ran a little warm (didn't seal well) and the dishwasher didn't work every time, but we were fine with washing our own dishes. We appreciated the condiments and seasonings left behind by previous renters. We made it work!

The beds were super comfy and clean. We all had a great-night's sleep the whole week there. The bathrooms were fine (the big shower in the master is super convenient), but drainage in the guest shower was a small issue. The washer and dryer worked great and are a huge plus when washing beach towels and clothes.

We never really used the living area - mostly because we enjoyed the outside. The WiFi worked most of the time (a few times we had to reset it) but the satellite TV never worked (though that might have been a blessing in disguise). Lots of great books and info for visitors to use.

We also appreciated the beach chairs, umbrella and gear left behind. Perfect for throwing in a Jeep and hitting the beaches all day. Though larger groups may want to bring/buy/rent their own chairs (they only had 2 non-broken chairs), floats and snorkeling gear. And it may be worth buying your own cooler, too.

For the price and the location, we would recommend The Reef House to couples and older families traveling to Vieques.
