Property description

Pura Vida is an inviting home located in Esperanza, the quaint fishing town of Vieques as well as the most popular tourist area. The three bedroom, one bath house is located in a great neighborhood, only 1 block, or less than a 5 minute walk, to the Malecon (ocean front promenade). We are 100% Air Conditioned at Pura Vida, stay in a house without AC at night in the summer and you'll know why it's a Nice To Have.

There is a lack of rental cars on Vieques, and if not reserved ahead of time, they may all be sold out. Avoid being left without a car to explore Vieques. Our SUV has three rows of seats holding 8 passengers. If you are a larger group staying at Pura Vida, an 8 passenger SUV negates the need to rent two vehicles, you can everyone fit in one SUV, thus saving you money on both rental fees, gas etc.

We are baby and child friendly! We had our first child in November of 2007, our second in January 2010. We enjoy bringing them to the island and they love Media Lunas gentle waves and shallow beach. At Pura Vida we have a Pack N Play crib, child booster seat for feeding (works well instead of high chair), and two convertible car seats for our SUV, capable of forward and rear facing. We also have a bunch of beach toys, child snorkel gear, books, games and puzzles to keep kids entertained. That is if they aren't worn out after a long day at the beach. We are happy to provide these child amenities to our guests free of charge, pending no abnormal damage to them. Each room is equipped with a TV and a Roku streaming device. We also have a Blu-Ray DVD player, a vast library of DVDs and a Playstation 2 and Wii with games for you to enjoy. WiFi is also included at the house to stream online video such as Netflix through a Roku in each bedroom.

Although we offer a SUV, our convenient location allows one to easily enjoy much of what Vieques has to offer without driving. Stroll to dinner and dine overlooking the Caribbean, grab a drink at one of the oceanfront bars, spend the day at the park, or experience the beauty (and nightlife) of Esperanza Beach and the Malecon, all within walking distance.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We purchased Pura Vida in the summer of 2006. Myself (Jeff), my wife (Michelle) and our two kids (Andrew born 2007, Caroline born 2010) are the proud owners of the property. We have put countless hours of sweat, capital and time improving and maintaining the home each year, which is not exactly easy on a remote Caribbean island! We feel we provide an excellent location, value and convenience with our vehicle at Pura Vida, and many others feel the same. We have had many repeat guests who have become friends each year, hopefully you will become not only a guest but a friend as well. Each year we continually invest with capital improvements to make your stay more comfortable. We've installed an outdoor shower, completely remodeled the kitchen (summer 2010), and continually update and replace amenities for your satisfaction. We have averaged over 250 days rented each year since 2009. We would not have rental numbers such as those without amazing and knowledgeable care takers, and satisfied guests. No house can claim to be all things to all people, however we feel we offer a tremendous value and location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We offer 100% Air Conditioning at Pura Vida. All bedrooms and the main living area have AC units. We are in a very safe neighborhood within walking distance to oceanfront shops, nightlife, and dining. Our 8 seat SUV will be waiting for you in the driveway and costs considerably less than a similar vehicle at a rental agency on island.
