Recent Esperanza reviews

  • Great for families, Beautiful beaches!

    "We were a group of 7, traveling with my great grandparents, and our three young children. Pura Vida was wonderful because we were able to rent their 8 person SUV and didn't need to travel with tons of baby and kid items (very helpful with 25lb/person baggage limit for the flight to the island). Jeff's information packet was thorough, and communication was fast and polite. Beaches are gorgeous, with a great variety. Malecon restaurants are a little pricey for our family every day, but we enjoyed the local food trucks on the weekend, and sandwiches, pan de sabao, and other treats from La Viequense and Dulce Esperanza. Well-stocked kitchen, and Jeff said he is buying new pans after I told him that the non-stick pans were in poor condition. Caretakers Joe and Mimi were friendly and helpful and easy to contact. One minor problem is the only TV is in the master bedroom, which my great grandparents were using so kids couldn't watch a movie without intruding, but luckily the free wifi was fast and reliable to stream Netflix on our iPads; plenty of time to watch movies at home during the snowstorms anyway, so sit on the porch and listen to the coquis. Only real negative, and we were warned, but in case you don't know: there are Roosters! and during our stay it was rooster raising season and there were many in the house behind us. Good news is the ac fans covered most of their noise. They are every where on the island so this isn't a negative about the house, just a minor cultural inconvenience for tourists on Vieques. We were too tired after a day at some of the most beautiful beaches in the world to care. Pura Vida is a great home base for your Vieques vacation."

  • A taste of Paradise

    "This place is the perfect getaway for families and couples, young and old. Our little boys loved all the wild animals and we loved the closeness to the beach as we didn't have a car the first couple days. The house is a stones throw from everything in Esperanza and several of the nicer beaches are in walking distance but having a car does make exploring the tiny island easier as the hills can be steep and the roads unsafe. Perfect place to get away from it all."

  • A Wonderful Place to Bring in a New Year

    "We stayed at the Magnolia House for six days and found it perfect for our needs. We loved that it was on a street with people who live there year-round as we prefer to not spend out time in "tourist only" areas. The location was ideal for us -- it's a few blocks away from the Malecon, a few blocks away from one of the main grocery stores in Esperanza, and a 10-15 minutes walk to Sun Bay. The absence of internet allowed us to fully immerse ourselves in being in Esperanza and being with each other. The porch is a perfect spot for some evening cocktails. If we return to Esperanza, I'd pick the Magnolia house again!"

  • 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."
