2 Bedrooms - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 4-6)
I officially live in San Jose, CA but I try to spend as much time traveling or in Vieques as I can.
Owner/manager purchased this Condo in 1992
Why Owner/manager chose Florida
This was my parent's retirement oasis. My mom found out about the island from a great friend who moved down to Vieques and started one of the first B-n-B's on the island. We started coming annually as family in 1989 just after Hugo and fell in love with the island and the people. They bought the home in '92 and then poured a whole lot of love and sweat into creating the sanctuary that I have inherited and am now trying to maintain.
What makes this Condo unique
Truly is a "home away from home" and not just a rental unit. Gives you a real feeling for life on the island but with the comforts you want while on vacation. Can't beat the views and the breezes, it's so easy to get sucked in and fully takes my breath away no matter how often I experience them!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
I would definitely come again.
Beautiful view and centrally located.
I stayed here with my wife and teenagers. The view was tremendous, the place was very clean and relaxing. I would definitely stay again. For anyone who has not been to Vieques, there are free range horses and chickens in abundance. The chorus of roosters is non-stop, but after a few hours they become a charming part of the background. I could sit out on the balcony for hours. The breeze on the ridge was perfect. Great place to stay.
A Centrally Located Haven
My 14 year old son and I spent 5 relaxing nights at Casa Anonna. This well-equipped haven is centrally located. Every morning I drank my tea on the terrace and enjoyed listening to the roosters and other birds. When we weren’t doing activities or at the beach, we swam in the pool. Elizabeth, the owner, is responsive and easy to communicate with, as is Tylar, the on-site property manager. We loved our stay at Casa Anonna and hope to be back.
My husband and two teen daughters thoroughly enjoyed Casa Anona! The flat was well appointed, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the balcony was hard to leave! We enjoyed coffee in the morning, overlooking a beautiful island. The weather was perfect when we were there. A nice breeze kept us cool. The caretaker was responsive and gave great advice on where to go as far as beaches and restaurants. We loved red beach (saw a marine iguana) and sun beach. Took a tour of the Bio Bay and went fishing. We loved the wild horses and chickens and roosters roaming all over the place!
The place is heavily gated so we felt secure, the pool is lovely and the grounds (filled with banana trees, star fruit, etc) smelled sweet like blooming flowers.
We rented a golf cart to tour the island and honestly we felt a bit ridiculous in the beginning. I reccomend renting a car before hand (yes Elizabeth you did reccomend that. We thought a golf cart would be fun) lol. We loved Vieques and hope it continues to recover.
We stayed at this rental for 6 nights. I have a 4 year old and a 10 year old. So a family of four. I am going to list pro's and cons, an honest review from someone who loves to travel.
1. Great location
2. The pool is fantastic
3. The view from the balcony is amazing, so beautiful
4. Great price, very affordable
5. Clean home
6. Owner very responsive
7. Access to laundry services
1. The beds are so bad, like hurt your back bad. Even my kids were like ouch.
2. The living room is not comfortable, the sofa arm is even broken, so it's not a comfy place to hang after a day at the beach.
3. The pillows are as thin as paper and you only have one per person.
4. The AC was out in our bedroom, soo the chickens had us up every single day at 5:30 am.
Overall, the place has a great view and a pool + budget friendly... like super affordable. The owner could easily fix the cons list and offer the property for $25 more a night. OR, if you are a budget traveler, this property is clean and has a great view. As for our little family, we missed some creature comforts like fluffy pillows after a long day exploring Vieques.
As for the island, it's truly magical and a wonderful place to visit. The location of this property is fantastic.
Our stay on the second floor of Casa Anonna was wonderful. The location is central to the island so that everything was a short drive away. The fans and location on the top of the hill allowed for wonderful breezes at night, we never turned on the window AC units. It was very convenient to have beach towels, chairs, and an umbrella as well as a cooler to bring to the beach all provided. The owner was responsive prior to our arrival and while there the caretaker on site was responsive. I didn’t ask about a coffee maker while there, there wasn’t one in the second floor apartment. The beach towels were hard to dry overnight in the humidity, the second floor doesn’t have a washer dryer (the top floor does). I think there may have been one downstairs with the caretaker that we could have used but we never asked. The pool was clean and well cared for, it was nice to cool off in at the end of the day. The property is gated so it felt secure but slightly inconvienient when pulling the car out and locking the gate. Overall we really enjoyed Casa Anonna and would gladly return.
Thanks for your feedback!
Sorry about the coffee maker and damp towels. I have followed up with my caretaker and found out that the coffee maker for the unit was broken and it has now been repaired. And yes there was a washer and dryer on the 1st level for your use. The unit’s key gives access to the common area on the 1st level so guests can access the units. Sorry that wasn’t made clear to you. For future guests please don’t hesitate in asking my caretaker or reaching out to me during your stay. Also there is a binder in the unit that provides some additional information.
During the high season, we recommend that you confirm rental car availability before booking our property.
