Overview

About the property

Steady trade winds, quiet, incredible views, very private with 2 master suites

Casa Vieques is situated in a unique spot on Vieques with increible sweeping views of the Caribbean and the surrounding hillsides. Four 8' X 8' doors open the entire front of the home to the Caribbean and let the trade winds flow through the house. Only two miles from the quaint village of Esperanza yet tucked away for peace and quiet on two acres. You will be close to some of the best beaches on the island.

Enjoy a view of the Caribbean from every room in the house. The Master suites are spacious and have everything you need to be comfortable. Close to everything but you will feel like you have escaped when you are sitting on the private 50 ft balcony watching the wild horses and the Caribbean. The house stays cool all year long with it's 11 inch thick insulated walls and steady tropical breezes to enjoy. You will only need a sheet or light blanket to feel completely comfortable at night. You can get into the spirit of this escape listening to the gentle sounds of tree frogs, birds chirping and horses grazes on the hillside.

There are two spacious (300 sq. ft.) master suites with king size beds, nightstands, reading lights, sitting area and private open air showers. You will be able to view the Caribbean and rolling hills while you have your coffee in bed if you like. The bedrooms have plenty of ventilation with large ventana windows and an 8' X 8' folding door leading out to the patio. There are plenty of bath towels and beach towels. There is a spacious area to hang clothes with plenty of hangers, three large shelves for folded clothes and personal items and plenty of space to stow away your luggage.

The bathrooms have flow through ventilation, ceiling fans, well lit mirror, bath towels, hand towels, beach towels, hair dryer and an area for your toiletries.

The living area has comfortable teak furniture which includes four club chairs, couch, side tables and coffee table. The deck has six adirondack chairs with side tables for outside sunning and enjoyment. Excellent WiFi coverage in all areas.

The kitchen is fully equipped with insulated glasses, pots and pans, full set of dishes, utensils, mixing bowls, chef knives and more. The refrigerator has an ice maker. There is also a coffee maker, toaster, gas cooktop and combination microwave/convection oven. There is seating available on the piano bar and at a separate table for dining.

We also have beach chairs, beach towels and a well insulated cooler.

About Babette Kurth

Casa Vieques was completed in 2012 and is one of the few eco friendly homes on Vieques. The two owners Barb and Barbara are the best of friends and designed and built the house for maximum comfort, view and privacy. You will fall in love with Vieques just like we have.

Babette Kurth purchased this house in 2012

Why Babette Kurth chose Vieques Island

Casa Vieques is one of the few homes on Vieques that offers a very private, quiet setting with an incredible view. It is also unique in that you feel like you own the island and have truly escaped, surrounded by hillsides, the caribbean view and wild horses

What makes this house unique

Beautiful open design, two spacious master suites with King size beds and open air showers. Close to the beaches, just off a main road which makes access quick and easy. When our friends from Vieques see Casa Vieques for the first time they are in awe of the home design and the private setting which is so rare on this little island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Yvette and I wanted to let you know how much we LOVED our stay at Case Vieques!



The rhythm and peace of that place will not leave us for some time....



We hope that Joey found everything to be in good shape upon our departure?



We're really looking forward to coming back to your fantastic space!



Thanks!

Notes:
Casa Vieques is a true get away place with ocean and pastoral views. Two acres on a hill with wonderful privacy and very quiet with few neighbors and a balcony that sweeps across the house for incredible views. Guests are always pleased and excited when they take their first step onto the balcony and see the view. Casa Vieques is situated two miles from the quaint village of Esperanza and the beaches are easily accessible. No long trips up mountainous roads to reach Casa Vieques. You will spend less time in the car and more time enjoying the island.

Loved our second visit

  • 5 of 5

The house is open with a large terrace that faces the pasture and ocean further away. Horses graze each day with their egret friends. A hummingbird visits daily as well. The house is well equipped both for the beach and for cooking. The island is totally laid back which is why we love it, not to mention the gorgeous and numerous beaches!

We will hopefully return for a third stay!

Perfect for Two Couples

  • 4 of 5

What you see on this listing is what you get. The house is clean, comfortable and well equipped. We stayed here with another couple for 10 days and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The living room furniture was comfortable for lounging and the beds were great. The set up for 2 couples was just perfect. We ate most of our breakfasts and lunches at the house as well as a few dinners and we had everything we needed to prepare and cook the meals even though there was no oven. The grill served us well. We enjoyed the horses roaming the backyard, not so much the trail rides coming through twice daily. We would stay here again.

Beautiful & Serene

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing this piece of Paradise with us.

Everything was wonderful. Loved the landscape, view of horses, mango tree, ocean & island.

Had everything we needed to relax, cook, go to the beach. Thanks for equipping the kitchen for making our own meals and dining in when we just wanted to stay put and watch the horses, stars and sky. Thanks for the beach bag and snorkel equipment. Bed was comfortable, love the shower and openness to the outside. We love that you fill the tub of water for the horses and enjoyed watching them come and drink. Joey the property manager was a great help: easy to reach when needed, responsive, welcoming, friendly, and full of good suggestions and advice. We can't recommend Casa Vieques enough!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed the home and all the extras. There were beach bags, snorkeling gear, beach mats, beach towels, coolers, pretty much everything you need for the beach. Loved watching the horses and saying hello to the trail ride groups that came by. The views were magnificent, the people friendly, the food good, the beaches and the mountains just breathtaking.

One of the best bioluminescent bays in the world is on the island of Vieques. The many beaches are great places to find sea glass, sea shells and artifacts. You can visit a different beach each day and will usually find the beach almost empty of tourists. No crowds on Vieques beaches.
