Recent Vieques Island property reviews

  • Perfect!

    "Our week at Casa Vaca could not have been better. The house had everything we needed for our holiday. We spent hours reading and relaxing on the screened patio. If you need the internet or television, there is neither. Being unplugged for a week was wonderful and everyone should try it. Experiencing the true "silence" of nature is one we won't ever forget. We wanted to come back in 2014 but our week had already been taken by someone else. One day, we will come back for another visit."

  • A serene vacation home in Esperanza Vieques

    "I have stayed at Casa Azul in Esperanza on multiple occasions for it's perfect location in Vieques. This cute home provides all the privacy needed from the healthy vibrant tropical garden inside the decorative walled property. The screened and louvered glass windows and doors allow the radiant Caribbean light to flow into the home making it a cheery place to rejuvenate one's spirit. The property manager couple are so passionate about the island. It reflects in the service they provide starting with meeting you at the airport and helping you get to the car rental place and or Casa Azul. Thus "no worries" while here! The beaches are so serene, natural and so uncrowded one often feels one has the whole beach to oneself. There are at least 8 Caribbean beaches to explore, some with coral reefs for snorkeling! Kayaking off the Malecon shoreline is also great fun. The evening sunsets are spectacular along the Malecon. After sundown, back at the house your ears will be serenaded by the sweet sounds of the native unseen tree frogs. Regarding the amenities, the TV is only a monitor for movie rental viewing. All other amenities are clean and meet expectations. I stay each time for a week & feel thoroughly renewed from my experience at Casa Azul."

  • 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.
