Great Labor Day Weekend
Great Labor Day Weekend
I had a great time with my family and friends in Casa Roja. The house is beautiful, clean and the kitchen is awesome. The property had everything we just packed our clothes. We stayed in the second floor-Reef Suite. This was my second time in Vieques however Casa Roja is the best place to stayed in the Island.

You won't regret your stay at Casa Roja!
You won't regret your stay at Casa Roja!
Elvira's Oceania rooftop penthouse in Casa Roja is ridiculously amazing and she and Val, the property manager, are beyond helpful. After booking, Elvira will hook you up with this massive document containing basically everything you need to know about Vieques. Where to buy food, find ATMS, rent a car, the best beaches, etc, etc. My two girlfriends and I were supposed to stay at Casa Roja in the Oceania penthouse Aug 22-28, unfortunately Tropical Storm Isaac had to bust in on our plans and delay us in Fajardo for 3 days. With a lot of rental properties, this could have been a real big issue, however, Elvira not only refunded our money for the nights we were unable to reach Casa Roja, but she also tried to help us find a place to stay in Fajardo, as well as restaurants and things to do. The two rooms are beautifully decorated. Bright colors, but never tacky, there is lots of light, particularly on the room to the right, where Elvira had handcrafted decorative windowpanes installed. The showers (one in each bedroom) are insane. I swear, like 8 people could fit in them. The living room/kitchen was perfect for us. Small and cozy, with all the necessary items to make delicious and inexpensive meals. Even the refrigerator is top of the line, with ice and filtered water. Hey, it's the small things! AC works great in the bedrooms. Casa Roja is located up on a hill overlooking the ocean and there is plenty of breeze to keep you cool. Oh, and the porch! Half covered, half open, view of the ocean, complete with table and chairs, a gorgeous handcrafted hammock and two super comfortable tanning chairs. We lived out here when we weren't on the beaches! This is really what makes this place special. In the yard below, there is a shared gazebo space for all the Casa Roja apartments with two charcoal grills, beach equipment (chairs, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, goggles, etc, etc). These things were fantastic for our daily beach excursions! There's also this cute little shower so you can get all the sand off before retiring to your super sweet penthouse balcony. There are 2 washer and dryers available for use. One thing: don't expect to stream videos on the Casa Roja wifi network, or any other. You can check email and do basic stuff, but none of the wireless networks I found in Vieques were very strong. I highly recommend any room in Casa Roja. Elvira has obviously put a lot of work into making Casa Roja the kind of vacation home you never want to leave!

Manager response: Sara, Jenny & Dana; Thanks for your detailed guest review. You ladies were a pleasure to help out during Tropical storm Isaac. I am glad you stayed the extra night to make up for part of the 2 day delay you had in arriving in Vieques. It is a great feeling to hear that guests like you noticed the fruits of many years of hard work, sweat and planning to construct and furnish Casa Roja. I will look into Vieques' limited internet services to see if anything has been updated to make service stronger to be able to stream videos on the network. As you mentioned, it is not uncommon to have this situation occur on Vieques. Hope you can come back !
I stayed in Casa Roja this summer and is a great place for families or couples. When we arrived to vieques it was very easy to walk from ferries to Casa Roja. When we arrived we were amazed by the house. It’s pretty comfortable, it has all the amenities: internet, towels, utensils to cook, very spacious, big bathroom. Is great for kids! The owner and the landlord are very nice and very helpful. The service is excellent. I recommend Cara Roja and definitely going back. IS A 10 of 10!

Manager response: Hi Karina, Jean, and Friends; I am glad Casa Roja could accommodate the four of you very comfortably during your short stay in Vieques. Guest service is very important to us at Casa Roja. Thank you for your review and I hope you return soon and tell your San Juan friends about Casa Roja. It was a pleasure to work with you!
great vac in vieques
great vac in vieques
my family and I just had a great vacation in Vieques! Casa Roja was very comfy and well equiped. The service was prompt, at reach and on a timely manner. Will def. recommend it and keep it in mind for future vacations! we stayed in the Coral and Reef apartments on the second floor and it was plenty of room for 6 adults. The set up was great as it has two private apartments on the 2nd floor. It is very near the ferry station which makes it very convenient. however, make sure you rent a car (4x4) as all the beaches are within driving distance. we visited green beach, red beach (caracas), navio and media luna (by far the bestttttt). This last beach looks like a huge pool, with calm and warm water, plus it has some gazebos that make your beach trip very pleasant. highly recommended. Overall, the house is great, the owner and admin are very responsibe and at reach at all times.

Manager response: Thanks for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the setup at Casa Roja. Renting more than one suite works great for a multi-generational family vacation. You can have your separate space and also shared areas. Hope to see you back .
Always a Great Time at Casa Roja
Always a Great Time at Casa Roja
I have been visiting Vieques for years, and ever since its opening, Casa Roja has been my vacation rental of choice. Soaring three stories high, Casa Roja offers a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean from its top floor and receives the water’s cool breezes. I have been able to stay in apartments on each of the three floors and am impressed with the unique interior decoration and design of all the rooms. There is a calming and island vibe attached to each apartment, with flowy curtains, compatible color schemes, and beautiful paintings, some of which are locally purchased. The bathrooms are spacious and provide a very refreshing showering experience, with optimal water pressure, smooth tile floors, and semi-transparent buffers to the rest of the bathroom. The kitchens are equipped with a stove and oven as well as high-quality cooking supplies and other devices like a coffee pot and blender. The well-equipped kitchen has enabled me and my friends to cook meals with ease and has allowed us to save money and enjoy using local ingredients. Nested in Isabel, Casa Roja is free of the bustle found on the malecon in Esperanza. It is in walking distance to the ferry, bank, grocery store, shops, and restaurants. I enjoy jogging through the hills of Isabel during my stay, taking in the oceanic backdrop and relishing in the peacefulness of the area. If you do wish to go to Esperanza, it is a convenient 15-minute drive from Casa Roja and the entrances to Vieques’ beaches. Vieques has become dear to my heart, having visited it since I was sixteen. Now twenty-three, I still treasure all my trips to the island. I can safely say that Casa Roja has been an integral part of the good times I have when in Viequies, and I would highly recommend it to all who visit.

We had a great stay at Casa Roja in Vieques. We had two large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen. The balcony was very large with a hammock and two lounge chairs and a wonderful view of the ocean! The location was also great. We were walking distance to the grocery store, and a number of fun low key places to eat. Elvira couldn't have been a more accommodating hostess. She's incredibly friendly and let us borrow her snorkel gear to bring to the beach. She also had beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. We would definitely return in a second and highly recommend Casa Roja.

A glimpse of Heaven!
A glimpse of Heaven!
My husband and I spent a week enjoying the true "island" experience of this tiny gem in the Carribean. The weather was warm, and so was the welcome by property owner, Elvira. Elvira reached out to us and helped us plan a great trip on short notice during peak season! Her welcome letter helped smooth the way as she gave us information on car rentals, restaurants, and reliable drivers. Best of all...she shares "insider information" on secluded beaches, horseback riding, and bio-bay tours. Casa Roja is newly built and well appointed. We had more room that we needed in the two bedroom penthouse apartment, but we loved the large, private balcony with ocean views and ocean breezes. The great photos can't capture the experience of this place. Casa Roja is located in the safe, desirable neighborhood of Bravos de Boston in Isabel II. It is an easy walk from the ferry, town, and some beaches - including Playa Cofi, famous for its sea glass. Elvira has thought of everything! She has coolers, beach towels, chairs, and snorkel equipment to share. Wireless internet, cable TV, and iPod docking station are available for those who can't be without their screens. This is a place that can be a happy spot for folks with different interests. Don't miss out on Casa Roja or Vieques! There is a new treasure to be discovered at every turn. We can't wait to come back with the whole family.

Brilliant Option for Vieques
Brilliant Option for Vieques
Casa Roja is a wonderful place to vacation in Vieques. I would recommend it to everyone traveling in Vieques, and the value is unbelievable! It was clean, the amenities and rooms were comparable to a 4-5 star hotel with several renovations done to the property. No Bugs, no dirt, with all of the luxuries of a modern condo. The location is a 5 minute walk to the Ferry coming from San Juan in Isabell II. A great little town with several eateries, shops, and close to the ocean. Elvira was a fantastic host and is very knowledgeable about the island things to do. She takes great care of her guests and the reputation of her property. Definitely have a chat with her and you'll realize the same. For the more secluded beaches and activities, we rented a scooter [rental of scooter or car is highly recommended] from Fun Brothers and scootered around the entire island. Awesome experience. Red Beach, Blue Beach, and Sun Bay are excellent places for being on a beach with no one else around. Beautiful water, waves, and weather. Night kayaking in the Bioluminescent bay is also well worth it.

Manager response: Rikin, Thank you for choosing to vacation at Casa Roja. I enjoyed chatting with you and sharing my love and knowledge of Vieques. I am glad your scooter rental worked out great with Fun Brothers. You seem to really enjoy exploring Vieques in the short time you were there. That's what vacation is all about ! Take care Rikin and come back soon with your family and friends. As you saw, there are a few suites to rent at Casa Roja. The hot/cold outdoor tiled shower with a bench and glass block walls was just completed on the 23 rd of March 2012.

Our wonderful experience started even before we left the US, The owner, Elvira, was very accommodating to our changing travel plans. When finally the dates were settled, she sent a very detailed letter describing what our options are to get to the island, what to do there, where to rent a car. We followed all of her suggestions: called the taxi driver she recommended to take us to the ferry, rented a car where mentioning her name gave us a nice discount. She was quick to respond to our special request of finding a cooking lady (which we ended up not using). After arriving her agent, Emily, greeted us at the ferry terminal and drove us to the house. It was only 5 minutes away, still it was very thoughtful. The apartment was clean and equipped with everything necessary for a wonderful stay (like snorkeling equipment, beach chairs, umbrellas). I wish we could have stayed longer.

Manager response: Viktor, I am glad your family had a great time. I am happy the Welcome Leter info I sent you was helpful. I am constantly updaitng it with new and modified info. It is meant to make the vacaioner's trip less stressful and less confusing. Going to Vieques for the first time can be a bit overwhelming with the extra transportation needed from mainland Puerto Rico to get to Vieques Island. The car rental and bio bay reservations should also be done before arriving, especially booing the car rental way ahead during busy seasons. I hope to see you in the future in Vieques.
When we got to the airport we were met by a cab driver that was arranged by the owner. He then took us to the car rental place and then Casa Rojo. Upon arrival we were greeted by the property manager, she was very helpful and gave great recommendations for good places to eat and the inside on the beaches. What ones are popular and what ones are more secluded, she even offered to give us a return ride back to the airport. I would recommend Playa Negro. The rental home was very clean and is a very comfy two bedroom one bath place. The the appliances appeared to be all new. It had a somewhat obstructed view of the ocean. The owner sent a welcome package to us with very good recommendation to restaurants and beaches. She also gave us listings of local events that were taking place the weekend we were staying there. This was very useful was we could sketch out or itinerary prior to arrival. This was a very memorable experience. We were look for a place that was for less time than most of the rentals would accept. The owner was more than flexible with us. I would stay here again and will also recommend to family and friends.

Manager response: Justin, I am glad you and your friends enjoyed Casa Roja and Vieques! Once a reservation is made, we strive to supply our guests with much personal, updated and helpful information that is not easily found on the internet in one location. Having this info ahead of time saves guests research time and effort while allowing them to book transportation on both mainland and Vieques and plan desirable activities including beach/water/outdoor adventures in advance to maximize their time and chances to enjoy an ideal trip. You can never plan too early for Vieques, especially with car rentals. I hope to have you back with your friends ! The ocean view from Casa Roja’s rooftop penthouse is very nice and panoramic across the north side. I hope you got a peak at that for a future visit.

Year Purchased: 2005
Why Bravos de Boston:
In January 2004, we discovered unknown Vieques after being the highest bidder at a company sponsored charity auction for a Vieques vacation at a house in Bravos de Boston. Up till then, I never heard of Vieques and didn't even know how to spell it for a google search. Vieques captured our heart and spirit and my family started to look for property during that first visit. In 2005, after two more property hunting trips, we stumbled upon what is now, Casa Roja. Since April 2005, we have been renovating and expanding the once small local owned house into what it is now - a modern vacation destination. Our house is located in a real neighborhood, surrounded by a mixture of people; natives and expats alike. We love the local Viequenses and their food, along with the unspoiled beauty and simplicity of Vieques, especially its dozens of secluded beaches. Our central convenient location is about a 5 minute walk to a quaint ocean snorkeling and swimming beach. Within about a 5 minute walk from the house, there is the ferry town of Isabel Segundo with the only ferry, supermarket, fresh fish market, pharmacy, bank, and restaurants are. We fell in love with the fact that there are no traffic lights or chain stores on Vieques. .
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can be assured that the experienced and professional property manager and owner team at Casa Roja can provide extraordinary services that you may not even have thought of - such as stocking your refrigerator upon arrival or arranging catered meals. They will also accommodate your needs and address all concerns and questions in a professional and timely manner. We will make you feel right at home while vacationing on the last safest place to step completely outside of your home, without needing a passport (if you are a US citizen). The owner took much pride and effort in purchasing, decorating and furnishing every item in the house. The 11 foot ceilings add architectural appeal which enhances the space and views from the oversized and numerous windows. Kid friendly items such as port-a-crib, high chair, kids beach toys, boogie boards and games can be provided with sufficient advanced notice. It is not uncommon at Casa Roja to hear the ocean waves and feel the refreshing breeze.
