Why the Owner Chose Esperanza: We found the island of Vieques when our daughter decided to get married here in 2007. We just fell in love with Esperanza, the charming old fishing village seemed like the perfect place for our retirement. The island has so much to offer, beautiful pristine beaches, nightlife, and culture.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The close proximity, 1/2 mile, to the Malecon's beaches, Shops, and Restaurants is the reason that we fell in love with our house. We think you will too!
