Recent Vieques Island reviews

  • Spacious, clean, comfortable - "no worries, mon ...”

    "We stayed in the spacious and clean upstairs unit (2bd/2bth) of 4 units with shared wonderful salt-water pool. The ocean breezes and views from our upstairs balcony provided the perfect starts and endings to 7 glorious days on the island. And those days were as carefree as the owners, Jen and Lauren, and Renee, the property manager, could devise. Jeeps on the property are available for rent and airport pickup and delivery was provided along with Renee's excellent local knowledge. Cooler, beach chairs, and ice maker were included. We used the poolside grills and eating area with refrig, restroom, and yard coconuts to great advantage under usually superb evening weather. The well-windowed upstairs floor plan required AC only when the breezes failed on a few occasions. With the windows open you can listen to the sound of surf instead of the local roosters. The only negatives worth mentioning were a few cranky window louvers, lack of a kitchen knife sharpener (if you want to filet the day's catch), hit-or-miss DSL connectivity (it shouldn't matter on vacation), and vehicle suspensions over-stressed by Vieques' killer beach roads. When the 2 gas stations on the island ran out mid-week Renee kindly provided an extra 5 gallons to get us through without losing any beach time. Be sure to ask about the fish market in town (shop before 10am for the day's catch). Phone in your sandwich orders to any of the excellent food shops in town for pickup on your way to the beach - menus are provided in the unit. Casa Ladera is a keeper being close to town, groceries, and great local cuisine. You can trust your hosts and know they're available anytime on the adjoining property. We'll be back."

  • Quiet, relaxing, perfect getaway for our family of 5

    "We had the pleasure of staying at Mockingbird Hill for 8 glorious days with our three young children. We used the main floor of the guest house, which was immaculate and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including a full kitchen, comfortable beds and linens, plenty of towels, and even hand and dish soap. The washer/dryer were very handy as well. MBH is perfect for those who want to truly experience the natural beauty of Vieques while getting away from noise, congestion, and roosters. The views are spectacular, and the constant breeze keeps the property comfortable. Lack of light pollution lends an equally gorgeous starry sky at night. The pool is lovely and a nice alternative for those days you don't wish to visit the beach. You can drive to the beaches within 10-15 minutes, and there are two newish delicious restaurants just down the street. Though we only used one home, this would be a fantastic property for a larger group, as you can travel together, but still have some separate space. Both the owner and property manager were very speedy in their responses, and easy to work with. I would stay here (and hope to stay here) again in a heartbeat."

  • We loved our stay at Casa de Pepito!

    "We loved our stay at Casa de Pepito! The house was perfectly appointed and exceptionally clean. It has the perfect location- walking distance to everything in Esparanza and a short drive to our favorite beaches.The house manager was very friendly and helpful. I've recommended Vieques and this property to all of my friends! Thank you, Catherine, for making this such a wonderful place to stay. We'll be back!"

  • Just got back from an awesome family vacation!

    "Just got back from our wonderful vacation to Vieques. This home has an amazing panoramic view from its huge front patio. Definitely our favorite part of the house. The beds were very comfortable and the house came with a pack and play which was very useful. Kitchen was well equipped and cabinets had "leftover" seasoning/oil/ etc from previous renters which was useful.. We also added to that by leaving what we couldn't take with us. There were plenty of coconuts to snack on. We had a rental car and were able to tour the island a little bit. (Most side roads are not paved and can be very bumpy). Our favorite beach was half moon. Would have liked to visit Blue beach, but was closed along with some others. I read they were closing for a few months to clean up military debris. Unfortunately we weren't able to do a bio bay tour (full moon), but will hopefully be back and can plan that for our next trip. Overall had an amazing vacation and would absolutely stay at this house again. FYI/Suggestions for the house..... only 2 of the 3 bedrooms have AC. It did get very hot/humid at night and we had to pull one of the mattresses into another room to sleep. The shower in the hallway bathroom has such poor water pressure we had to all use the master bath to shower. Not a big deal and I'm sure It could easily be fixed. Some of the beach chairs are broken/rusty. Again not a big deal since we spent most of our time on the crystal clear water!"

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.
