Recent Vieques Island reviews

  • Beautiful home in paradise

    "I went down to The Fruit Trees in late January with three friends, and I could sum up the trip in one word: magical. This is my third time staying in this house and it gets more magnificent every time, due to upgrades (the new kitchen is stunning) and my ever increasing fondness for the island. The house gives you sense of privacy and comfort that you just can't get at a hotel, not to mention you are exposed to more of the island's culture. We loved cocktails on the roof at sunset, nightly stargazing on the zero gravity recliners while listening to music and mornings poolside before we set off for the beach in the afternoon. Michele and Damien were both extremely kind and helpful throughout our stay. I couldn't recommend this house more highly! It has everything you'll need from beach chairs, towels, coolers and umbrella to laundry, comfy pillow top mattresses and a fully stocked kitchen, all in a very stylish and clean home. It is obviously well loved and looked after. Everything about this trip was perfect and I can't wait to return again!"

  • 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!"

  • Excellent stay - would definitely come back to Casa de Pepito!

    "This was our first trip to Vieques and Casa de Pepito was the perfect choice for our little family (2 adults, 1 10-year-old girl). The house itself had everything we needed, was clean, comfortable, and well maintained, and the location was great...walking distance to all the restaurants and Esperanza beaches, and short Jeep rides to all the other beaches and sights on the island. Octavian and Catherine were both friendly and accommodating as we were planning our trip, and Barbara the caretaker picked us up at the airport and drove us back when it was time to go home, and gave us all kinds of helpful tips about navigating the island. Would definitely stay here again."

  • A true Oasis

    "As soon as we arrived at the house, my husband and I had to pinch ourselves a few times. The views are simply spectacular! We must have taken hundreds of pictures over the course of our stay. You just have to experience it for yourself. The house is well equipped for heading to all the nearby beaches - beach chairs, coolers, plenty of towels, etc. But we really enjoyed relaxing in and by the beautiful infinity pool each morning. We often used the kitchen to cook our own meals to save some money. The house is conveniently located near the town of Esperanza so it's easy to get to all the bars and restaurants. I have never had such great food and cocktails on an island before. My husband and I were very impressed with the house and the island and can't wait to plan our next trip back!"

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.
