On top of Mount Carmelo, the 2-story house borders the Wildlife Refuge, overlooking the Refuge's vast tropical forest. Unobstructed expansive views stretch from the Caribbean to the Atlantic. Rustic; private; quiet; cool breezes day and night.

The space
The space is a two-story, one bedroom (2 new queen size beds), one bathroom, 600 sq. foot, cottage perched on top of the mountain of Monte Carmelo. From our two porch balconies (upstairs and downstairs) the views of the Wildlife Refuge and Atlantic and Caribbean Oceans are unmatched by any on the island. The upstairs balcony features 2 hammocks for observing the mind-blowing views from above. The downstairs porch balcony features two rocking chairs, a sofa, a dining area and two swings. The views of the Refuge are equally stunning from both balconies. Banana, papaya and other fruit trees occupy much of the property so feel free to partake. The first floor of the house features a full kitchen: gas stove, oven, double sink, coffee maker, blender, full-size fridge and all of the dishes, utensils, pots and pans you would need should you decide to cook meals at home. The second floor of the house is the bedroom with two brand new queen size mattresses on the beds and a pair of french doors leading to the second story balcony. The single bathroom is off the bedroom. The house features a hot water outdoor shower made entirely of glass blocks. Water pressure is great. We have a washing machine should you need to do laundry at no extra charge. The house is mostly windows so light is great at all hours of the day in every room and the constant mountain breeze up there keeps things cool day and night without any need for air-conditioning. The stairwell leading to the upstairs is rather steep as are the drops off the balconies so we don't recommend this place for very old folks, families with small children or anyone who may have difficulty getting up and down steep stairs. Our design concept is that the simplicity of the house compliments the natural beauty of its surroundings and we think you'll agree.

Where you’ll be

Vieques, Puerto Rico

It would be hard to overstate the natural beauty of our neighborhood seeing as the majority of it is Wildlife Refuge. We have very few neighbors and our closest ones are the equivalent of one or two city blocks away. It is secluded yet accessible. 5 minutes to the closest convenience store, 10 minutes to Isabel Segunda and Esperanza. Wild horses roam daily up in these parts. Egrets, eagles, and many species of hummingbird are among the plethora of birds and other wildlife that can be observed in the Refuge below from our two porch balconies. The sunrise and sunset are breathtaking and the moon rises directly over the rolling hills of the Refuge in front of our balconies. A full moon rising is an incredible sight to be seen from here. Stargazing is magnificent as we are far enough from Isabel II and Esperanza that we are not affected by their light pollution. External noise never interrupts the cool mountain breeze during the day or the symphony of coqui frogs, crickets and other wildlife that occupy the Refuge's soundscape after dark. On either side of the Refuge are views of the Caribbean and Atlantic Oceans with views stretching all the way to Culebra Island, St. Thomas and St. Croix.

I'm the nurturing type so I love to create magical spaces where friends and family can be together or, inversely, where one can spend introspective time alone writing, resting and renewing.
