  • The only bad part was having to leave...

    "We've been home from our trip to PR for a week, and our week at Villa Altamira is one of the sweetest family memories we'll share for a lifetime. It was me, my husband, a 14 year-old son, and two daughters, 13 and 12. We were in San Juan first for 4 days, and were eager to move to the quiet of Vieques after all the excitement. We were in NO WAY disappointed by the Villa. Annette met us with an open and welcoming smile. The pictures don't do the place justice, and that hardly EVER happens. It's not that the pictures are bad; it's just that pictures can't capture the comfort and ease the place envelopes you with. It's bright and breezy, so clean, warm, and so well stocked. The views are amazing. The pool is beautiful, clean, and just cool enough to be refreshing without making you shiver. The grounds are covered beautifully with fruit trees (be careful though, I tried to pick a lemon and got stung by a bee!), bougainvillea, banana palms, and more. My girls took the upstairs, gleefully pretending it was their college apartment in NYC (goofy girls). My son grabbed the downstairs room, with the gorgeous bathroom (love the sink and tile). It was a little hard to have him so separate at night (as this space can be rented out separately), but we gave him a phone and had him lock the door. He loved having his own "boy" space. That's a great thing about this property, you really do have SO many spaces to just "be." Some of our faves of the house: coquis at night, little geckos and iquanas by day, the landscaping, the hammock, the pool, a well-stocked kitchen, the AC in the rooms (it was HOT!), dining on the back deck watching the sun set on the water, drinks on the high deck, the laundry, and all the beach/snorkel gear for your use. Bring sunscreen, bug spray, and after burn lotion, though. Some of our faves on the island: BIO BAY (magical, you must do it!), snorkeling by the Mosquito Pier (we swam with sea turtles), snorkeling off the side of Cayo Afuero (tours not too expensive), Caracas/Red Beach was my #1, Navio was everyone else's, going down to the fishermen's pier to buy dinner from the fresh catch (saw a HUGE puffer fish in the water), COQUI FIRE PIT (Go and eat carnitas, YUM!), all the markets, Al's for drinks, Oh, and the horses, LOVE the horses, everywhere! Thanks for making this little slice of paradise available, John and Karen, and for all the love and work you've put into the place. My daughter was right, it was SO hard to leave."

  • La Vista Caribena was a perfect match for us!

    "We stayed in this home for 9 nights and 10 days and it was a great fit for our family of five. We had three bedrooms and a right sized kitchen, dining and living area. The neighborhood was nice, walkable to the Malecon, very close to La Dulce Esperanza and the Colmado. We would definitely stay here again when we go back to the island."

  • Paradise Found

    "1 week on a hill with an amazing pool. The house had all the necessary equipment for a great beach vacation. We packed our Jeep every afternoon (after mornings in the pool) with chairs an umbrella and a couple travel coolers and headed to a different beach everyday. There were plenty of beach towels and even a few noodles. All the stuff we needed was right in the closet. The house was clean and airy. Great water pressure and the king bed was very comfy. The twin beds in the other room were not great for grown ups, but we made do. The covered patio was a great place for evening meals and a welcome escape from the sun. The pool chairs were terrific and the umbrellas are on wheels. Awesome. Caretakers Kristina and Tony were always a phone call away. Tony actually met us at the grocery store and lead us to the house. We have stayed elsewhere on the island and this joint was super quiet and peaceful by comparison. The Tin Box bar and restaurant was a short drive down the road. Where we spent a couple lively evenings enjoying organic barbeque and fresh watermelon margaritas. A few notes: you need a jeep, don't miss Secret beach, Red beach and Blue beach and lastly, Esperanza is the town to spend your evenings in. One more thing, the best snorkeling is at Mosquito Pier."

  • Lovely property with fantastic views!

    "My husband and I celebrated our tenth anniversary in this charming rental! Thank you to our hosts Terry and Julie for making us feel so welcome. Our hosts were available to answer all of our questions and even included us in her weekly snorkeling club and yoga class.We were able to go to some snorkeling spots that we never would have found on our own. The unit is immaculate, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The expansive patio is a dream. From the deck we were witness to the coming and going of many sailboats, yachts, and freightors. And to the clip clop of horses hooves as the Esperanza riding company took its tours past the neighborhood. Situated in a nice neighborhood within a short walk to the Malecon and all of the action! I couldn't imagine a better and more affordable place to stay during your holiday on the charming Island de Vieques! Again many thanks to our hosts!"
