    "House was beautiful with great views. Could smell flowers all day long. Would recommend to anyone without hesitation. Birdie was very helpful and easy to work with."

  • Beyond words.

    "I work with words for a living, and still I've been staring blankly at this review screen every time I open my computer for the last 3 weeks since we returned from Vieques, just trying to imagine what I could possibly say that a) hasn't been said very eloquently already or b) is not beyond words. The arrival, the jungle, the roads, the people, the sunset, the sunrise, the flora, the fauna, the beaches, the water, the house, the view, the pool, the yard -- the smallest details and the grandest abstractions (the space, the time, the feel) both seem inadequate. Truly, genuinely, I just hope you can give yourself or someone else the gift of living at La Escapada, if only for a moment. You'll be left with the greatest thing to say, simply: Thanks."

  • 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."

  • Couldn't have been happier!

    "We were so pleased by our week rental over Christmas at Isola. Our family includes two college age kids and we enjoyed the porch more than we could have imagined. We drank our coffee while reading the paper in the morning (wireless worked great!), watched the sunset over cocktails in the evening before dinner and stayed up late at night playing card games and talking. Not a single mosquito, but I understand that may have been the time of year. The beds were comfortable and the whole house was spotless. The kitchen had just exactly what we needed (a set of measuring cups would have been useful) and we cooked most of our meals there including Christmas Eve and Christmas dinners. The lobster from the fisherman was delicious and lobster pot and gas grill were great to have. Our little beach in front was a great place to do a little fly fishing in the evening - my husband's favorite activity - and we took an evening swim a few times. We had fun exploring the rest of the beaches on Vieques but the best part of our whole trip was this house..."
