Encantada Vieques is a five acre estate bordering the Caribbean Sea, just west of Esperanza on the southern side of Vieques. This brand new home is an open-air luxury villa designed by famed architect John Hix to maximize your time spent enjoying Vieques natural beauty. The home features absolutely stunning views of the Caribbean from every room, including five outdoor showers. Lounge in the 94 foot infinity pool, enjoy roof deck cocktails and walk down to Coco Beach. Book now, bring camera!
I legitimately believe this is the most beautiful place on the planet! So much so that my fiancé and I are getting married here in February of 2019. So my money is where my mouth is, so to speak. And we would love to host you on your first (or next!) visit to Vieques.
Encantada is an open air, concrete eco-luxury villa that combines indoor and outdoor spaces seamlessly together and gives you true enjoyment of nature in a remote island paradise. There is absolutely no glass in the entire house, yet the temperature is perfect.
Featuring a 94 foot infinity pool steps from the kitchen, dining and living space, and a two minute walk down to a gated beach entrance, this home is exactly what you ve been waiting for and reading about experiencing in Vieques.
Before you sleep you ll look up into the night sky and see the Milky Way, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter clearly and you ll realize how everywhere you usually travel has light pollution that ruins your star views. When you wake up in the morning you may see wild horses walking along the beach and hear waves crashing on the shore.
At dusk, AKA "golden hour" you ll see the most beautiful sunsets reflected on the clouds and the coconut palm trees reaching up towards the sky west of the property. You will wonder why you should even leave for dinner at the phenomenal local restaurants when you could just cook hamburgers on the grill and drink beers and frozen drinks while the sun sets.
OK, enough romance. Some quick facts about the house and property:
-Encantada is a 3 minute drive or 10 minute walk to Esperanza, the beautiful, sleepy fishing village on the southern coast that is quickly becoming the hub of tourism on Vieques
-The home features 6,000+ square feet of living space and comfortably sleeps 16. That s using five bedrooms (two of which have sleeper sofas in addition to their king size beds) + one office with a sleeper sofa
-There is a 94 foot infinity pool that sits just off the main living space and faces down towards the Caribbean Sea
-There is a walk way down from the pool to a gated beach entrance that opens onto Coco Beach, one of the most picturesque beaches I ve ever seen. Victoria s Secret Swim 2015 was shot here on this beach.
-There is beautiful landscaping including interior courtyard bamboo gardens, lush pool planters and multiple outdoor showers
-All of our appliances are brand new and high end. Wolf stove, Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, two pairs of washer and drier, etc. Complete luxury.

My extremely experienced property manager, Karen, will be available as desired during your stay. She knows Vieques quite well and has handled every rental issue under the sun for her other properties. She is a truly invaluable resource, dedicated to making your stay on Vieques absolutely amazing. I fell in love with Vieques about two years ago and only wish I could spend more time there. I’m more than happy to share my favorite island activities and restaurants with you as helpful. Our goal is to help you experience the best that Vieques has to offer.
There is a Casita on a different part of the five acres (see my other listing). Together, guests from each house can access the entirety of the property outside of the two individual homes, from the electronic gated main entry to the gorgeous beachfront, also accessed by private gated entry. Casita guests cannot access the main villa nor the main villa pool, and Villa guests cannot access the Casita.
