VRBO Bear stayed here

Apr 18, 2016

Vieques, Puerto Rico is a special place and the VRBO Bear’s stay at Cima Del Mundo could not have been more enjoyable. The unit is clean, comfortable, safe, modern, and conveniently located—everything you could want in a rental! The location is close to town (5 minute drive to Isabel, 20 minutes to Esperanza) and set on a hillside, without any direct neighbors—providing a picture perfect view without any disturbances. We enjoyed the sun-filled, spacious 2-bedroom rental as a great place to relax and unwind. We started each morning with coffee and breakfast on our private, large balcony (which faces the big island with a view of the El Yunque rainforest) and spent our afternoons lounging poolside before venturing out to explore the island’s secluded beaches. Our hosts’ familiarity with the island and their thoughtfulness for accommodating us as guests did not go unrecognized; they truly considered every detail to make our stay worry-free. Deborah is a delightful host who greeted us from our flight into Vieques and gave us a very informative orientation tour to get us acquainted with the location, history, and culture of the island—which we found invaluable! (Note: Google Maps will not work for you on this remote island.) Deborah and Dennis live on-site and were very responsive to any questions we had during our stay, making us feel at ease as we learned our way around Vieques. We were also able to rent a vehicle from them, which was convenient and easy to book! We were provided with every amenity we needed to feel right at home – basic supplies for cooking, towels and chairs for daytrips to the beach, dominoes and Bluetooth speakers for relaxing in, etc.—you name it, it was there. They even let us borrow their lobster pot after we picked up seafood at the local fish market. The VRBO Bear could not have dreamed of a better stay, and cannot wait to visit again!

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

I agree with all the other five star reviews. This place is simply amazing. It's clean and perfect for a family of four. The pool is refreshing and relaxing after a wonderful day on the beautiful Vieques beaches. Dennis and Deborah are the perfect hosts. They're so nonintrusive and at the same time out in any way they can and answer all questions about the island or the facility. The apartment itself is incredibly well-equipped and we were never in need of anything. Above all else Deborah has impeccable taste and makes you feel like you're in a luxury suite hotel. We had such a wonderful time we are definitely going back whenever we can. Thank you so much Deborah and Dennis for a great stay.

Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to begin! Deborah and Dennis are wonderful. The location of their home is perfect! Very convenient. They supplied everything we needed, including advice. The pool was amazing. The apartment was very clean and just right for our family of four. Not only are we planning to come back to Vieques next year, we will definitely stay here again. Added bonus was Dennis picking us up a the airport, giving a tour of the island and to our rental car.

Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic find! I have been coming to Vieques for eight years now with my family. You are welcomed by such gracious hosts. We had such a wonderful stay with Deb and Dennis, every review that you read is absolutely correct. Dennis was lending helpful hints to us when to get gas. Deb came to pick us up at the airport and brought us to get our rental vehicle. She also went out of her way to pick our daughter up at the ferry. Her welcoming greeting included some cold medalla beers on ice for thirsty travelers.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a warm, quiet place to get away in the winter. We wanted to spend quiet time on beautiful beaches, eat good food, and generally restore our spirits. Vieques did all of that and more. Between beautiful beaches that for the most part are undeveloped, wild horses that roam the island, fantastic sailing and snorkeling expedition where my wife snorkeled next to a sting ray, our desires were totally met. We ate delicious food from restaurants overlooking the Caribbean or deep in tropical jungle, all of it quite wonderful. What topped off the experience to make it heavenly was the perfect hosting by Deborah and Dennis O'Keeffe. The ability to provide you with expert hospitality, exquisite taste, and as much privacy as you wish is a remarkable balance rarely achieved. However, Deborah and Dennis were all of that and more. They provide a wonderful tour of the island with much background information, offer a beautiful property at reasonable prices, with beautiful views and simple but elegant taste, and lastly a warmth and charm that makes you feel welcomed and cared for. I am not someone who is easily impressed and I left this delightful little island wanting to come back soon.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent seven magical days on Vieques staying at Cima Del Mundo, Del Sol suite. It was our first visit to the island and hopefully many more to come. From the moment we arrived at the airport and greeted by Deborah, we knew we made the right choice.

Deborah took us on. "getting acquainted" tour of the island before taking us to get our Jeep. This tour was extremely helpful. Although Vieques is small, the roads are very curvy and don't always make sense in the way they go. When we arrived at the house, we were blown away by the amazing ocean/ island views. Every day we saw many rainbows from the brief rain showers and at night the coquies serenaded us to sleep.

There are so many beaches to see and each has it's own unique flavor. For a calm snorkle beach head to Starfish Beach on the west side of the Mosquito Pier. The Mosquito Pier was also a wonderful scuba spot for us on Christmas morning. Green Beach on the west coast was also a decent snorkle beach with many crevices to explore. To the south, our favorite was Caracas and Sun Bay. The waves were quite big the week we were there but the boogie boards provided at the house were a fun way to enjoy them. Also take advantage of a paddle board tour on the beautiful bay next to the Bio Bay.

One evening we took the kayak tour in the Bio Bay. This is definitely something not to miss. We had some great dining experiences in Esperanza as well as Isabel Segundo. Our favorite bar was Al's Mar Azul. If you are looking for upscale, fancy, don't go to Al's. If you want a great view of the ferries coming and going and gorgeous sunsets, go to Al's. The food is bar food but good. Get the chili cheese fries and try one of the many flavor of wings. We also came on taco night and enjoyed a taco as an appetizer before going to dinner at Taverna, great Italian food. Mamasonga's also has a nice roof top deck with decent food and good drink prices.

There's so much to write about here but the most important thing to mention is the fabulous hospitality from Deborah and Dennis. Staying at Cima Del Mundo is a must when visiting Vieques. We can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for giving us the opportunity to host your holiday stay at "Cima"! We enjoyed your enthusiasm for our little island. For a little island off an island, floating in the middle of nowhere, we sure do have wonderful restaurants, don't we? The whole place is magic! We loved having you here and hope you will come back for another visit!

Best place in Vieques

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd trip to Vieques and when we decided to make a return there was not a hesitation in our minds that we would not stay at Cima and visit Deborah and Dennis. Their hospitality is evident as soon as you step off the plane. This flows right into your quick island tour and before you know it you are up and over the hill and on top of paradise. Cima offers 2 spacious bedrooms which was plenty of room for our family of 3. The views from the balcony are breathtaking and worth watching the sunset over the big island. Our first trip we overpacked but for this we left all the extras at home. The rental provides snorkeling gear, towels, beach bags, sand buckets, chairs, coolers, travel mugs, bags, etc. No detail has been left unturned. My advice: pack your suitcase and then remove half of it, that is all you will need. We spent the majority of our days on the beaches and came home nightly and cooked dinner. One night included lobster and fresh fish from the fish market. We felt at home at Cima and know you will feel the same! Thank you.

Owner's Response: It was so great to see you and your family again. I'm glad you were able to return to Vieques and "Cima"! We loved having you back! You are right about not overpacking...there are no fashion police on island and the washer and dryer stand ready for our guests' use. Thank you for your kind words and we hope you make a habit of coming back!
