“Location, Location Location.” It has become a real estate cliche and for La Casita del Amor it really is about the location. Few homes on Vieques enjoy the unique and intimate relationship La Casita shares with the sea. No wall or fences separate La Casita from the ocean, and the property is seclusion itself. from almost anywhere you are completely hidden from the sight of any other house. Enjoy all the beach has to offer from sea combing for shells, sea glass and drift wood to swimming, surfing, kyacking or simply watching nature at it’s finest moments!
Set on approximately 1/3 cuerda, La Casita del Amor is exactly what you imagine a Caribbean beach cottage to be. Bounded on two sides by a protected mangrove and completely invisible from the street, La Casita has approximately 143 feet on prime direct Atlantic Ocean front. Throw a stone from your porch and watch it splash in the sparkling and crystal blue waters.
This carefully maintained house is designed for island simplicity and ease of use. Beneath rustling palms and cooling almond trees, La Casita is approximately 1000 square feet with vaulted ceilings and classic terrazo floors.
In the large bedroom a full wall of windows faces the ocean. You will drift asleep at night and awaken in the morning to the sound of the sea.
The open plan living and dining rooms are surrounded by windows with light and breezes ruling the day. Large glass doors lead out to a covered porch and a sprawling cement patio that invite you to the beach, palm trees, ocean and blue skies only steps away. The full kitchen features new counter tops and appliances and counter seating for two. The bathroom has been recently renovated and features a glass brick shower.
Most of the interior woodwork including room doors, closet doors and door frames are made of Imbuia, a lustrous Brazilian hardwood which is now a protected species. Installed in 1995, the rich, dark wood is highly resistant to insects and the wear and tear of the seaside. All of the windows facing the ocean have been replaced in 2013 in state of the art technology.
In addition to the house there is a quaint small wooden pottting/storage shed with an attached car port. The large back yard enjoys a shady patio enclosed by a white-washed cement wall with a wonderful grassy area for games.
