Isabel II house description
Colina de Brisas (Hill of Breezes), is located on a hill above the town of Isabel Segunda on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. This beautiful vacation house overlooks the Fort of Vieques (El Fortin Conde de Mirasol) with sweeping, panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Puerto Rico and the island of Culebra.
The property sits on almost an acre of land with plenty of tropical fruits, trees and plants. There is a flat area on the East side of the property where you will find aloe plants, coconut, calabash (gourd) and grapefruit trees. On the West side of the property you will find more tropical plants, mango trees, pineapple plants and hidden away, a hammock for relaxing in the shade. Feel free to pick some mangos or pineapples to go with your meal or just relax in the hammock.
The living room has a TV with a DVD/VCR player. There is a library of movies for you to choose from as well as books and games to enjoy when you return in the evening. Each room in the house has a ceiling fan to take full advantage of the tropical hillside breezes. The master bedroom has a king size bed and large private bath. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has both a full size and twin bed to sleep 7 adults comfortably.
The large kitchen is fully equipped with a stove and range, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and needed kitchenware. Make yourself at home and try your hand at cooking a real Puerto Rican dinner from one of the cookbooks.
Come and enjoy the verandah, especially in the evenings, and let the trade winds carry away all your worries. There is a bistro table and stools to sit and enjoy the view of the fort at night or watch the late ferry arrive from Puerto Rico. Listen to all of the nightlife and see if you can hear the "co-qui" frogs.

We had a wonderful time at Colina de Brisas - one of the best vacation rental home I've stayed in. The furnishings are lovely, the kitchen is well-equipped, and the views are amazing. I can't imagine another way of vacationing on Vieques - I hope to be back soon.

Excellant home away from home.
Excellant home away from home.
We are a family of 4, which includes to adlut kids. It was pleasant superise to find out that the picture's is what we were hopeing for. The house is great, well maintained, the beadrooms are big & comfortable. The only draw backs at the place was that there is no TV reception, but they have plenty DVD & games after you get back from your day's activities. If your not use to the sound of wildlife & night it could bother you, but we slpet like new borns. We felt very secure alarm system. We didn't have a car for the first two days, but that was ok because we were within walking distance (10mins) of Isabel II. Our first night we eat at Richard's cafe good food, great rum punch. For dinner a must is Trade Winds, breakfast Roy's Cafe & Internet, lunch Bananas & Williams Pizza's. If you want to hang out at a bar for small talk with the locals & tourtist Al's Mar Azul is the place to be. The people are friendly & full of lots of info on where to go & what to see. You do need a taxit or car to get to the beaches. Sun Bay was fun but crowed the locals said it's the most people they seen in a long time, Red Beach is nicer, but Blue Beach was the place to be, only about 50 people there. they have Gazbo's like Sun Bay, but unlike Sun Bay no bathroom's. But don't let that stop you it's by far the best beach to go too. The caretakers at the rental Patirck & Pat are great, always available to reach by phone & very helpful. From what I've heard from other renters else where car rentals were very high, but we got a great deal from Patrick far better then going thru a car rental place. Make friends with the taxi driver who pick you up from the airport, they will be available to take back when time to leave & we took the taxi from Luis Muniz airport to Fajardo. We took the ferry to Vieques which we recommend. I would also like to thank the owner Renee' Chandler she was also a phone call away. Your place is beautful. Thanks again.

Wonderful stay in Vieques
Wonderful stay in Vieques
The view was beautiful at all times, everything we needed for our stay was available. Fully equipped and spacious, the air conditioning was a blessing after a day at the beach. Ease of reservation process was great. The responsiveness of the property manager was exceptional. Would recommend this property without hesitation.

We had a wonderful time in Vieques and a large part of that had to do with Colina de brisas. It literally had everything that you would need to enjoy a day at the beach and be able to come home and cook a great meal. Renee was very helpful in securing the place and the property managers also had additional information to help with the stay. Highly recommended!

Had a wonderful time in Vieques in no small part due to our stay at Colina de Brisas. Clean and well- kept, it was such a relaxing place to come back to after enjoying the beaches and restaurants on the island. Renee was friendly and very helpful! She provided a thorough list of places to visit. Would highly recommend!

For our third trip to the phenomenal island of Vieques, my husband and I chose Colina de Brisas as our home away from home. From the very beginning of the rental process we were extremely impressed by how easy and professional the owner Renée Chandler made things. The website’s photos and information was wonderfully comprehensive, the information they needed from us was requested via easy to fill out forms, they accept PayPal, and answers to questions and confirmations were sent immediately.When the date of our trip was near, we were sent terrific verbal and visual directions (that ultimately navigated us to the home flawlessly), as well as were given the opportunity to select our own entrance code in lieu of a key. We loved the simplicity of not needing to worry about keeping track of a key on the beaches!Our arrival at Colina de Brisas took our breath away! The views from the enormous veranda are even more stunning than the website can give them credit for. The home is bright, airy, spacious, exceedingly comfortable, meticulously clean, and had all of the amenities we could ever imagine desiring. There is an easy to use home security system and a safe in the bedroom. The kitchen was huge and vastly stocked with more cooking and dining supplies than we could even get around to using. The two (that’s right, two) bathrooms had massive counter and storage space, as well as great lighting. The volume of bathroom towels and beach towels available to us was astonishing. We particularly enjoyed the wide array of DVDs, Playstation games, books, and board games available for our use during the stay. We really appreciated having use of the in-house washer and dryer so that we could pack far less than we normally would for the trip. Colina de Brisas also has a big selection of beach bags, coolers, chairs, body boards, and other fun supplies we made full use of. In conclusion, we have never had a better experience dealing with a renter, nor stayed at such a magnificently beautiful, perfectly appointed home. Renée Chandler and Colina de Brisas have ruined us for all other possible vacation rentals!

We had a very nice stay. The view from the verandah is beautiful. The drive to the beaches on the south side is only 10-15 minutes, and the restaurants in Isabel II are very accessible. This vacation rental gives a good value for your $.

Our experience was explendid, the house was more than we expected. Everething was in place, clean, neat, on time, by far one of my best esperiences in a vacation place. I've been in Vieques before, but having these acommodations improve the experience and my family loved the place, the surroundings, THE VIEW (what a view!). If anyone is finding a place to stay in Vieques, this is it!!!

What a wonderful place! The island is gorgeous, the people friendly, and the house is perfect! We really enjoyed all the extras in the house - the movies, books, beach chairs and coolers - as well as it's location. And the information on beaches and restaurants that the property owners put together was VERY helpful. Even the kids can't wait to go back!

My family visited Vieques Island on May 27th and 28th 2009. We stayed at Colina de Brisas and found the home to be perfect. We had a total of 6 people (one being a 2 year old) and there was more than enough space for the family. The home is equipped with everything you would need including beach towels, beach chairs, sand toys, movies, games, cooking supplies etc.. If we return to Vieques one day we would be delighted to stay at Colina de Brisas again. Try Bananas and Quenepo Rest. in Esperanza. Quenepo is $$$$ but fabulous food. Bioluminescent Bay is a must. Island Adventures gives a great tour to that.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My husband and I are from the Northeast and moved to Virginia after college. My husband is a senior manager for a major company and I am a stay at home mom for our 2 young children. We are a very active family and enjoy traveling whether to visit family back north or to head south to our second home in Puerto Rico.
Why the Owner Chose Isabel II:
We visited Vieques in 2004 and instantly fell in love with the island. Later that year we decided to take a chance before the island started to receive the recognition it has recently had and see if we could find a second home that we could rent out until we can one day retire there.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love that our kids will have a place to remember vacationing every year and that they will have memories that they cherish and share with their children. Vieques is the perfect place to unwind and forget the real world - even if only for a few days.
