About The Hix Island House
The Hix Island House is located on Vieques Island. This small Caribbean Island is situated off the southeast corner of Puerto Rico’s mainland. Most travelers do not venture to this island and are missing out on a top vacation destination.
The Hix Island House is a secluded, luxury resort nestled in the lush, green landscape. This retreat features five separate wabi-sabi designed buildings. In total, these concrete structures contain 19 apartment style rooms.
The open air concept of each loft invites nature and wildlife to the indoors. Natural vines grow their way into the interior walls and ceiling. Wild birds may even fly in for a visit. The posh lofts are decorated with minimalistic style which adds to the simplicity of the visit.
There is no need to leave this resort because each room has a fully stocked kitchen with a variety of foods including fresh local fruit, homemade bread, and Puerto Rican coffee. If venturing outside, relax by the pool or stroll the sanctuary grounds to catch a glimpse of the wild horses that roam this island.
There is no need to feel guilty while staying at this eco-friendly resort. The conservation efforts of the Hix Island House has even won Fodor’s Gold Award and many other awards for being green.
Feel at peace while bathing in the private outdoor shower knowing that the water is being collected to nourish the neighboring fruit trees. Minimum solar electricity is used since there are no tvs, phones, wifi, or air conditioning. Wifi is available in the main office if needed.
The Hix Island House claims it, “Gives back to nature as much as we take, thus providing a great example of how to live a green life. For our guests, this means a responsible-living Caribbean vacation!”
Getting to Vieques requires a short flight via Cape Air from San Juan International Airport. Budget travelers may opt to take the ferry, however, this is not a reliable form of transportation.
Renting a jeep is recommended while on the island to visit beaches and other excursions. Maritza’s Car Rental is a great service and very accommodating.
We’ve traveled to Vieques on two separate occasions, adults only trips. For future visits, we will be staying at the Hix Island House every time. We’ve taken other adults only trips to Mexico and the Dominican Republic, but those destinations don’t even come close in comparison with The Hix Island House. Romantic rest and relaxation at it’s finest!
