***SOLD*** Like many alluring waterfront vacation properties, location is everything. This exceptional 1,141 sq ft oceanfront duplex on Puerto Rico’s Vieques Island, renowned for its clear blue waters, is set within one of the island’s most enviable beaches. Known as Bastimento, it is one of only a handful of residential beaches promising the kind of otherworldly quietude longed for in year-round living or vacation destinations. The immense two-mile stretch of soft sand has desirable attributes not easily found among other beaches on the tropical enclave. There is a stunning dual reef that can be witnessed from the units’ balconies and the property’s 600-ft gazebo. A piscina, or tidal pool, is another enticing feature with hundreds of yards of bath-temperature water, an ease of entry with no rocks or shelves, and a soft, sandy bottom. One of only a handful of properties in the area, the duplex has the most ideal vantage point from among its neighbors for unobstructed views, as well as the greatest amount of direct beach frontage at 151 feet. The expansive 0.47-acre lot provides the opportunity to build a truly exceptional beachfront home on one of the most coveted vacant sites on the island, keeping the existing duplex as a guesthouse, or using it to generate significant vacation rental income. This beautiful property is a great investment for anyone seeking an excellent short-term rental property or their own second-home vacation getaway.
The largest lot within the exclusive Bastimento enclave, the property is truly a gem from the inside out. Comprising one bed and one bath on each of the two levels, almost every aspect of the interior and exterior has gone through a complete and extensive remodel, from the immense landscaping enhancements to multiple foundational elements. Not sparing any expense, the kitchen and bathroom remodels had a complete overhaul with the addition of high-end appliances, materials, and finishes. The upstairs unit showcasing new porcelain stoneware flooring from Spain is sure to delight, and downstairs, the original floor brings its own distinctive, old-world charm. Hurricane-resistant windows and doors were installed, as well as solid-wood interior doors throughout. The same attention to detail was extended outdoors during the remodeling process, with hundreds of native flowering plants and palm trees strategically placed throughout the .47 acre lot.
This veritable island paradise is only a 30-minute ferry ride or 10-min plane trip from Puerto Rico’s mainland. With over 20 beautiful beaches and one of the world’s brightest bioluminescent bays, Vieques is a globally recognized vacation destination. Offering all the material comforts, a variety of local restaurants, fresh seafood and water activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving, boating and jet skiing as well as hiking, and horseback riding, this island is the perfect setting for a Caribbean Island home.
