"My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Casa del Marullo (House of Waves) from June 12th-19th, 2015. We had a wonderful time at the house and on the island of Vieques. The house is very secure, comfortable, clean and in a great location. The security system in the house makes you feel very safe. You feel very secluded and have your own stretch of beach all to yourself. Sitting on the outdoor patio and hearing the waves is so peaceful and relaxing. We had our morning coffee on the patio and cocktail in the evenings. The island is so beautiful with pristine beaches, unspoiled by development. I loved the horses running around loose all over the island from the roads in town to hills and beaches all around the island.
During our week on the island we went sailing, snorkeling, fishing, beach hopping, shopping and eating out. We also cooked a lot at the house and they had everything we needed and more. In fact everything was provided, from shampoo, soap, lotions, etc., to spices and all things needed in the kitchen. The house also had beach items and snorkeling equipment so we didn’t have to rent those items. The owner of the house, Barbara sent me loads of information before we got to the island which was so helpful in planning our trip. She also gave us a wedding gift, which was so sweet and thoughtful. Barbara’s house manager Marcelle and caretaker William were also very friendly and helpful and showed us how to get to the grocery store and fish market when we arrived. Barbara, Marcelle and William were just a phone call or text away if we needed anything during our stay.
We booked the sailing/snorkeling trip with Caribbean Lady and it was great. We had a crew of three on the 47’ boat and they provided snacks, meal, drinks, dessert and snorkel equipment. It was an awesome experience, especially since it was my first time snorkeling and I was scared to do it. Christina on the boat was a wonderful instructor and Glen took great care of us on the boat and in the water. Captain Tom was informative and entertaining and his wife Ann made all of the food which was delicious, especially the Tres Leches dessert."

"This apartment is right in the heart of Esperanza. The ocean is literally across the street. It has a good balcony and is very spacious. We planned on getting groceries and cooking but had to much fun eating out instead. Everything you need is within walking distance. The apartment is on top of some gift shops with a restaurant/bar in the back. We read other reviews and were a little worried about the noise so brought some earplugs, but it was not bad at all. I would come back and stay again."

"We just returned from a week at Casa de Colores, and a wonderful week it was. Communication with the owners was a breeze from beginning to end. The house was just as described, and the layout conducive to accommodating our extended family. Between the large upstairs deck, with plenty of comfortable seating and amazing views, the poolside table for dinners (and a few more lounge chairs), and the sweet little alcove (another chaise!) by the burbling fountain, there were many places to relax separately--or together. At the end of each day we all had cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the upper deck, before cooking a delicious meal or going out to one of Esperanza's many delightful restaurants. The lush and well-maintained vegetation provides a home for hummingbirds, bananaquits, and kingbirds, to name just a few. The property managers were prompt and very helpful (though we didn't need any help with the property itself--it was in great condition). I'd recommend this place highly!"

"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!!"
