*** WE HAVE POWER! Casa Tolteca was connected to the island generator system in March and we are ready for guests! The house is in good shape, we have even better views (one benefit of Hurricane Maria) and we would love to have you stay with us! The sun is shining, the beaches are beautiful and many businesses and restaurants are open and very excited to receive visitors.
A few caveats: We are not completely back to pre-Maria status yet. The generator is fairly reliable but there is the possibility that the power might go out for short periods. We have lots of flashlights and solar lanterns if you need them. Our landline phone is still out and, as a result, we don't have wi-fi at the house yet, however internet service is available at many locations on the island. We are also waiting for our satellite TV dish to be replaced and we expect that will happen in the next month or so. We like to think of it as the opportunity for a totally 'unplugged' getaway, where you can truly 'get away from it all'. We hope you'll come check us out! ***
Casa Tolteca provides the tranquility and beauty you expect in a tropical vacation. The villa offers four bedrooms and three baths, including two master suites with en suite bathrooms. Completing the picture is an exquisite 30 foot pool, two outdoor showers, as well as almost a half acre of grounds with tropical gardens, ensuring a tranquil vacation.
The villa is in an excellent location in the Five Points neighborhood in the hills outside of Isabel Segunda, the island's main town. We're only 5 minutes drive from the downtown and less than a 15 minutes drive to the best beaches. We have beautiful views, balmy breezes and convenience without the hubbub of town. Casa Tolteca gives you the relaxation you crave, the carefree living you need, and the vacation you deserve.

About Cheryl Donakowski
I live in northern Michigan, where we all appreciate a warm, sunny escape in the winter! I owned two vacation rental properties on St. John in the US Virgin Islands, and as it became more developed and crowded I looked for another island that would be as quiet and peaceful as St. John was a few years ago. I found Vieques to be the perfect place - plenty of great (protected) beaches, lots of great restaurants, wonderful people, and a lot of peace and quiet!
Cheryl Donakowski purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Cheryl Donakowski chose Villa Borinquen
Casa Tolteca is a great house in a great location. We have plenty of room for groups to gather together and also plenty of room to spread out. With the pool deck, covered porch, living room, upstairs library area, and roof deck there is a space to suit everyone. We are also in the perfect location, in a residential neighborhood in the hills about 5 minutes outside of Isabel Segunda, the main town on the island. As a result, you are close to restaurants, groceries, gas stations, ATM, etc. We are also very near the road to the entrance of the Nature Preserve and are within 10-15 minutes drive to most of the world-class beaches on the island.

It is our fourth time @ Casa Tolteca and we love it. The house is beautifully kept, well maintained, and offers everything you need to make your vacation GREAT! Our host Jose was awesome and took care of every detail. Will definitely go back!!!
Everything was excellent! Its a great place to stay with family.
From start to finish it was an amazing experience. The hospitality was felt every step of the way. Great location and family friendly. 10/10 recomend!!
Fun house with an appropriately wild feel as you approach, but the path to the house is actually beautifully landscaped. Our boys loved the pool and it was easy to keep an eye on them from the kitchen/living space. Great location, easy to explore in any direction. Kelly and Cheo, the property managers, and Cheryl the owner were all wonderful to work with and very responsive.
It was our first time in Vieques and this house really made the trip perfect. Kelly and Choa were amazing and extremely helpful.
I would recommend staying at this house especially if you want to learn to move around the island on your own.
Worth every penny!!
We absolutely loved this house! It was very clean and comfortable ...had everything we needed to for the beach( chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, coolers) Kitchen is stocked with everything we needed!! The location is perfect from everywhere on the island. The initial drive into the house was a little nerve racking because it's up on the hill however once we learned our way around it was no problem at all! The view is spectacular! We can't say anything bad about this house! Kelly and Cheo the property managers were just the best also! Super helpful before and during the trip! Thanks for letting us stay here!! We will be back!!
The specific phrase to describe our experience in Casa Tolteca: "an amazing and a perfect place". We fall in love with the house, the amenities and the hospitality of Cheo and Kelly when they received us in Vieques. I just spent one of the best birthday weekend ever! Hope to came back!
Vieques is the last of the unspoiled Caribbean Islands. If you want golf, and nightlife, this island is NOT for you. If you want empty beaches, quiet evenings overlooking the tropical landscape, great restaurants and nice people, come to Vieques. Our home is perfectly located in a residential neighborhood in the hills, 5 minutes out of the main town of Isabel Segunda and convenient to restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, atm, etc. It is also only 10-15 minutes to the world-class beaches in the Nature Preserve and about 15 minutes from Esperanza, a charming fishing-village on the south shore with waterfront restaurants, shops and water sports. Other Activities: Kayaking in the BioBay, exploring Vieques countryside
