Caribbean Vista is a charming and recently renovated 2-bedroom villa, perfectly and ideally located in the peaceful hillside neighborhood of Destino on Vieques Island, Puerto Rico USA. This hillside villa, which is very private and unique, boasts commanding and dramatic Southern views of Vieques Island, Caribbean Sea, Cayos of Esperanza, Bioluminescent Bay and the National Wildlife Refuge. The spectacular infinity swimming pool has dramatic views and features a waterfall, with multiple lounging, sunbathing and entertaining areas and is a perfect place for alfresco dining. The colorful tropical gardens surrounding the villa and infinity pool are an explosion of colors, textures and shapes.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this Villa twice now. Back in Oct. 2015 and Oct. 2014.

The villa is just about perfect. The pool area is stunning. The views from the terrace are amazing and one of the main reasons I returned and decided to rent from them again.

The location is on a steep hill. There is a covered "garage" for your car rental. The first time pulling up on the hill seems overwhelming and scary but after that initial time it is a piece of cake.

You pass a small iron gate and walk up a small flight of stairs and will be greeted to the stunning pool terrace area. There is a small round table with bench like seating around it and a grill. There are also cushioned seating by the pool and chaise lounges. The infinity pool also has lights and lights up at night. Take advantage and star gaze in the evenings, it is truly magical.

Floaties, beach chairs, beach towels are provided.

The washer and dryer is off back outside of the terrace.

There is a mango tree over the back part of the terrace as well.

Bed linens and towels were fresh, crisp, and clean. Beds were also super comfortable but firm enough to provide back support. The sofa in living room also has a sleeper. The tv is quite small but suffice.

The kitchen was perfect for small meal prep. There is a blender to make frozen drinks ;). No dishwasher but wasn't that important to us.

There is also the essential pots and pans, cutlery, silverware, oil, salt pepper.

Bathroom also had bottles of sunscreen and aloe vera.

The things we purchased for our stay was paper towels, detergent, and food.

Wifi and television worked just fine for both our stays.

Dennis is on hand for anything you need. Our garage light was out and he came the same evening to change it out.

Biobay tour is a must and they have paved a new walking area upon entering the water!

Fruit Farmers Market a couple times a week on the island off the side of the road is also a must (ask for the days upon arrival)

Jolyon was great responding to our emails and extremely helpful.

Im returning a 3rd time this summer!

Exceptional property on Vieques!

  • 5 of 5

Jolyon Bowman's lovely home on Vieques was surely the highlight of our recent family trip to Vieques. The property is perched on a beautiful hillside with distant views to the Caribbean Sea. The house is bright and open, spotlessly clean, with a well stocked kitchen and ample linens. The most wonderful aspect of the property, however, was outside! We all loved the terrific 8 foot deep infinity pool, lovely patios with tasteful and practical furniture, and beautiful planting a throughout the property. Grilling in the evening amidst the glow of the patio and pool lights was wonderful! Nothing we needed had been omitted, from garbage bags to beach equipment! Jolyon Bowman's communication prior to and during our stay was outstanding and he graciously allowed us to extend our stay by a day, as we couldn't bear to leave! His caretaker, Dennis, was extremely helpful and accommodating throughout our stay. This exceptional property is truly a gem and one that we hope to return to in the very near future!

Many thanks!

The Perfect Little Villa with a Vista!

  • 5 of 5

This hillside villa is kinda perfect.

Firstly, it's really cute AND comfortable! It had all the modern comforts that you want on vacation but still felt like a "locals" house in that it had the "feel" of the island. Great colors, fabulous views, beautiful garden, lovely pool!

Secondly, the location is ideal in that it's just a few minutes one way or another to beautiful beaches (and this is coming from someone who is NOT a beach girl) and great dinners out. And if you don't feel like going out, you just step out your front door to stunning views of the water and wildlife reserve. I was just charmed sitting on the outside verandah listening to the bird calls and awed by the peacocks who came for a visit! And in the evenings, we would just grab a glass of Rose and sit out under the stars enjoying the cool breezes, free of mosquitos! (I say this because they love me and it's always a concern of mine.)

Finally, the owners were very helpful with information and organized when it came down to getting us where we needed to be! They went the extra mile to answer my questions and share some of their island insider tips! They made it such an easy stay.

We are already scheming when we will be able to get back. LOVED IT!

Great Vieques House! Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from Vieques and had a great stay at Caribbean Vista. Both the house and the pool were better than expected and that was tough to do - given the great pictures of the pool. The house was on small side, but perfect for three of us. The house was clean and comfortable and it had a nice bathroom. The listing should include pictures of the bathroom as it was nice, especially the shower. There is another house immediately behind the house, but not once did I see or hear anyone from that house.

The house is in a great location, less than 5 minutes from Isabel Segunda in one direction and 5 minutes from the entrance to the National Wildlife Refuge in the other direction (where my favorite beaches are: La Chiva (Blue Beach), La Plata (Silver Beach, and Pata Pieta (Secret Beach)). Sun Bay and Navio Beach are also close by.

Make sure you go to Coqui Fire Cafe, but make a reservation (they only have 7 tables). Conuco, El Quenepo, and Next Course were also excellent (although El Quenepo and Next Course were on the expensive side). At Coqui Fire, the pork carnitas were out of this world. At Conuco, the chicken fricassee was also outstanding (as were the mango margaritas). If you're looking for a great breakfast, you should go over to the W Hotel. I have stayed at the W on my prior trips to Vieques, but enjoyed the privacy of Caribbean Vista so much more.

Finally, the owner of the house promptly answered all my inquiries both before and after I committed to renting.

Best View in Vieques!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved everything about our stay at this property on Vieques but the best part hands down is the view...especially from the amazing infinity pool. It was very hot and humid while we were there so it was so nice to come back to the house and jump in the pool. The property manager met us at our rental car location and guided us to the house so we didn't have to try and navigate on our own. The house was clean and had everything that we needed. The kitchen was equipped with all the utensils, appliances and dishware that you would need. We cooked breakfast for ourselves every morning and ate out on our amazing patio overlooking the ocean. There was a cooler for the beach, beach chairs, a large umbrella and boogie boards. This house is great for a couple but also has enough room for a family or a small group of friends. We loved Caracas Beach (red beach) which is only a couple of miles from the property an on the way you can stop at Sol Food, the only food truck on the island. They have the most AMAZING beef empanadas. We also really loved our meal at Next Course and Coqui Fire Cafe. If you are going to travel to Vieques then you need to stay at this house!!! If you don't believe me about this view, check out the pictures we posted on the facebook page! You will not be disappointed.

We would like to thank the owner and property manager for a magnificent stay.

First and foremost, the home was exactly as advertised and promised. Everything was very clean and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows plentiful. The kitchen had basically almost everything you could need; blender, oven, stove, coffee maker, full-size fridge, utensils, wine glasses, etc. For the beach we had Tommy Bahama beach chairs, umbrella, and a cooler, and they even have a boogie board and some beach toys as well. And for the pool, very nice lounge chairs to relax and catch some rays, and even a radio/cd player too. The property has a private parking spot/gate for a vehicle as well.

The pool/deck/outside is what really make this place magical.....what a view. It's truly a struggle to leave the house and explore the island because the pool/outside are just perfect. But we loved exploring Vieques and the wonderful beaches, and it was great to have such a cozy and relaxing place to come home to.

The only things I would say could be added or improved are 1) a microwave and a 2) bigger/better tv and broadcasting. It's almost embarrassing that I mention a TV, but I'm just being picky here; I came during football season and would've liked access to US "local" channels like NBC, CBS, etc. But basically the Dish TV provided had ESPN and all of the other satellite channels, so it was just fine.

Don't be reluctant to stay in the "middle" of the island here. We were concerned at first about the location but it was actually perfectly located in the center of everything...a few minutes drive to the south/north beaches, downtown, and esperanza. There were plenty of small stores (1 being right outside of the neighborhood) around for anything you could need too. Being just a short drive to the wildlife refuge/beautiful southern beaches was ideal.

I want to make special mention of the responsiveness and hospitality from the owner and property manager. Before and during our stay, they were both available for any questions we had. The property manager met us @ Maritza's rental when we arrived and took us to the rental and provided a quick rundown on everything. Check in and check out was a breeze.

So, in summary, I can't say enough about this property and the hospitality we received. Thanks so much for providing us with an amazing stay and unforgettable memories.
