Villa Altamira- the perfect getaway! Exquisite views, private, yet close to town.
"Having stayed at Villa Altamira before, we love coming back to see the beautiful changes each time. The owners have created a beautiful, private sanctuary on top of the hill. Beautiful views from two balconies, plus the pool area, with various seating options. Three private, large bedrooms, (one is a studio apartment that is separate and downstairs from the main house) accommodating many people, without feeling cramped. The new AC in the bedrooms were a plus, but not always needed. The house is very clean and provides everything you'll need, including snorkel gear, as well as areas in and around the house to "get away". The house managers, Annette and Dennis are wonderful! They can answer any question you have, fix any problem that may arise (there weren't any) and have wonderful recommendations. This is a very quiet area situated on a hill, hence, the gorgeous view, so plan on playing ball at the beach if you have littles, but they will love the pool! We love staying at Villa Altamira and look forward to our 5th visit!"

"La Escapada... a festival of family frivolity! My wife and I, our two 20-something children and daughter-in-law recently returned from a fantastic week here. The house is perfectly situated on the island to take advantage of all that there is on this low-key Caribbean kismet. Island breezes sweep the property almost non-stop, whether you're lazing by the gorgeous pool listening to the rustling palm trees, dining on the covered patio or gazing at the horizon from the side porch.
It's clearly someone's home... not simply a rental property. The decor is island-fabulous, tchotchke'd just right, and comfy as can be. Tony & Christina take great care as great caretakers do, and made our segue to paradise seamless as can be.
And, oh, the island! Great people, great food, and you can engage or disengage completely, as there are tons of passive and active things to do. From dive-bars with fantastic sunsets to hardcore 4-wheeling adventures to the most pristine, solitary caribbean beaches you're going to find, it's all here.
Highest recommendation. Come and experience it."

"One of the major reasons our visit to Vieques was wonderful was due to our choice to stay at Casa Ladera. Even before we arrived, Renee, the property manager, made us feel welcome. We were impressed by how promptly she responded to every question (no matter how trivial). We especially appreciated her suggestion to use Abreeze/Acacia jeep rental. Renee also arranged for our transportation from the airport to the car rental.
Our 2nd floor unit was clean and had a spacious living room and kitchen. Aside from food, drink and snorkeling equipment, Casa Ladera provided everything (even coffee filters). And the view of the ocean from the balcony was a bonus. Location-wise, we really liked that there was a beach right down the street and a grocery store practically right around the corner.
Renee was marvelously helpful in making suggestions. Every place she suggested turned out great – the Farmers’ Market, Conuco, Next Course, and Caracas Beach (for swimming - due to having the least amount of seaweed) and Rompeolas (for snorkeling). Throughout our stay, Renee was easily accessible via text or phone call. To top things off, her dog, Krypto, greeted us with a wag whenever we saw him.
Overall, we had a fabulously pleasant, relaxing time at Casa Ladera. We definitely recommend it, especially for people who want a low-key environment and want the option of cooking or grilling - should the mood strike. Also, the place is beautifully maintained and the pool was always pristine. Everything was better up close! Thanks to Renee (and, of course, the owner, Jen) for making our first visit to Vieques a memorable one.

"We just returned from our second trip to Vieques. Previously, we rented a different house, so this was our first time at Los Frutales. My husband and I were completely blown away.
The house was incredible and Michele and Damien were excellent property managers! Everything went very smoothly even though we arrived over an hour early on our flight! We followed Michele and Damien up to the house and they gave us a great tour and basic lay of the land. The views from the property are jaw dropping and you have so much privacy!! The location of the house could not be better! You are a quick drive from both towns and the reserve.
We loved the all the fruit trees - fresh mangoes! The chickens were a delight. We did not mind them at all in the mornings. When staying at a property among locals, guests should expect the true local experience! The W is for guests who want secluded, resort living. This house was stocked with every amenity you could think of. We cooked several times while there and everything was at our fingertips! I blistered my foot on the first day on the beach, and low and behold, band-aids were in the bathroom! The wifi was reliable the first day or two, but then became spotty. We were fine though because our Verizon phones worked just fine! Remember to adjust your roaming settings when you arrive on the islands!
We will definitely stay at Los Frutales again. We loved it so much that after day one, we joked about canceling the other half of our trip and staying here the whole week instead of only 4 nights! We already miss the view at the pool and the amazing rooftop deck!
Thank you so much Michele and Damien!!"
