Recent Vieques Island property reviews

  • Paradise Found

    "1 week on a hill with an amazing pool. The house had all the necessary equipment for a great beach vacation. We packed our Jeep every afternoon (after mornings in the pool) with chairs an umbrella and a couple travel coolers and headed to a different beach everyday. There were plenty of beach towels and even a few noodles. All the stuff we needed was right in the closet. The house was clean and airy. Great water pressure and the king bed was very comfy. The twin beds in the other room were not great for grown ups, but we made do. The covered patio was a great place for evening meals and a welcome escape from the sun. The pool chairs were terrific and the umbrellas are on wheels. Awesome. Caretakers Kristina and Tony were always a phone call away. Tony actually met us at the grocery store and lead us to the house. We have stayed elsewhere on the island and this joint was super quiet and peaceful by comparison. The Tin Box bar and restaurant was a short drive down the road. Where we spent a couple lively evenings enjoying organic barbeque and fresh watermelon margaritas. A few notes: you need a jeep, don't miss Secret beach, Red beach and Blue beach and lastly, Esperanza is the town to spend your evenings in. One more thing, the best snorkeling is at Mosquito Pier."

  • Banana Wind Vieques

    "Had a wonderful time staying at Banana Wind. This modern, concrete house is designed by a locally known architect and well appointed and maintained with great amenities including professional range, outdoor grill and fridge, alarm system, washer and dryer, wireless and satellite radio. It was a convenient location and a perfect size for the three of us! The house had a beautiful swimming pool- although the water was too cold to use during our recent stay. Great views from all rooms and rooftop. The house looks quite large from the exterior but really only comfortably accommodates 3 or 4 people. Our only major criticism was that there was no living room or place to hang out or eat or entertain indoors (other than a counter with two barstools and small sofa). The caretaker and owner were very responsive and helpful when contacted. We would definitely stay here again!"

  • Perfectly flexible

    "This is a great property, and I think one of the few with direct access to the waterfront. The beach is fantastic and nearly deserted, and being at the end of the road keeps things nice and peaceful. We had a wonderful stay there, and the best part was the management staff, who are very flexible and communicative and do a wonderful job. Hopefully will be back someday soon! You definitely need a vehicle for this location unless you don't want to go anywhere, but other than that the unit has everything you need but for groceries, and even some of those!"

  • Come here if you love to relax and enjoy having the comforts of home in a tropical paradise.

    "We made many fond memories at Casa Piedra Grande. It is the perfect place to bring your friends and family. We rented the entire home and loved how there were several gathering spots and enough privacy at the same time to have time to ourselves when we wanted it. We spent many afternoons and evenings enjoying the salt water pool with the kids. It was the perfect temperature and very clean. The kitchens are well equipped and the grill is ready to be used which is a nice addition for the nights you just want to hang at the house and enjoy the pool and patio. There are some markets within walking distance and a bakery too! The donuts are made daily and are a MUST try! We loved getting to know some of the locals over the week at the restaurants and bars which are ALSO in walking distance. One family favorite was Duffy's. We did not have one bad meal in Vieques. All of the restaurants are very good. Casa Piedra Grande is very comfortable, clean, and has really everything you will want to enjoy your stay including AC!!! I definitely recommend this home and am ready to be back in Vieques. it's a beautiful, relaxing, destination that is full of charm and will win a piece of your heart."

Vieques Island Travel Tips

Travelers to Vieques Island Vacation Rentals

Vieques Island is a long narrow island that forms part of Puerto Rico. It is one of the country’s premiere eco-friendly destinations. Most of the development is in the center of the island. The coastline and beaches are mostly national parks and nature reserves. The result is a pristine island destination. This attracts travelers who enjoy exploring overland. Many of the beaches can only be accessed over rough gravel roads and you will need a Jeep or 4x4 in order to drive there. There are many areas that can be explored by hiking. Photographers will find ample opportunities to capture the beautiful beaches and dry coastal forests on film.

Getting to Vieques Island Resorts

Flying from North America, you will route through San Juan in Puerto Rico. From there, you will need to take a taxi to the ferry port in Fajardo. It is advisable to pre-book a taxi for this transfer. The drive takes approximately an hour. If you do not pre-book a taxi then you are likely to pay much more. The last ferry to Vieques Island departs at 6 p.m. or 8 p.m., depending on if it is a weekday or weekend. Ensure that you have enough time for the ferry connection. If your flight arrives late into San Juan, you can stay overnight in Fajardo or the nearby seaside town of Luquilo. You can then get the first ferry out the next morning without having to travel too far. Once on Vieques Island, you can either hire a Jeep to get around or use a taxi to transfer to your rental home. If you plan to do lots of exploring then it’s advisable to rent a Jeep. A normal car is not suitable as many of the roads to the nature reserves are made of gravel and quite badly eroded. Rental companies will not allow you to take a standard car to the beach, instead they will insist that you hire a Jeep or similar 4x4.

Vieques Island Travel Attractions

One of the island’s most famous attractions is the Bioluminescent Bay. It is a unique natural phenomenon that is amazing to experience. It is best viewed at night when you can see the full effect of the microorganisms as they light up in the water.

Other attractions that are quite unique are the wild horses that roam the island. They were originally brought to the island in the early 1500s from Spain, with the objective of setting up a breeding project. After the collapse of the short-lived gold rush, horses became Puerto Rico’s primary export product. Today, many wild horses can be seen on the island. Horseback rides can be arranged from certain stables on the island who have trained horses available.

Near Green beach is a magnificent Ceiba tree believed to be more than 300 years old. It grows right alongside the road. Make a stop to view it while on your explorations. The tree makes for some fantastic photo opportunities.

There are many historical sites on the island. At the Vieques Conservation and Historical Trust in Esperanza, there are a small shop and museum. Here, you can obtain more information on places of interest on the island.

Staying on Vieques Island

Many of the rental homes on Vieques Island are located high on the hilltops. This means that you have spectacular panoramic views of the island and surrounding seas. Set in peaceful natural surroundings, it’s like having your own private island abode. The rental villas on Vieques Island are perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all. When you are not exploring the island’s natural treasures, you can spend your time on the porch admiring the view and enjoying a favorite book.
