About Sean O'Brien
I am a fly fishing outfitter in Hamilton, Montana. I discovered Vieques in August 2021. After spending 2 weeks there, I realized Isla Nena is a beautiful and special place. I returned October 2021 and spent the winter through March exploring and falling in love with the island and her people. During that time I became good friends with Edwin, the previous owner of Hilltop Hacienda, and purchased the property from him. Edwin had 38 VRBO reviews with an average rating of 4.8 stars. I am maintaining the villa at that same level of excellence. I now spend every October through June on Vieques, at a different property. I plan to move to Vieques full time in 2024. Once you visit Vieques it will change your life. Two-thirds of the island is a nature preserve, there is not a single traffic light, and about 3,000 horses wander freely. There are so many deserted beaches and forest-canopied mountain roads, too. But, honestly, more than anything, Vieques is a state of mind. Whether you're walking on her pristine beaches, feeling the refreshing ocean breeze, diving deep in her crystal waters, or smelling the many colorful, fragrant flowers, Vieques helps you to remember what's really important in life . . .
Why Sean O'Brien chose Villa Borinquen
Hilltop Hacienda's 180-degree water views are truly stunning. You cannot forget for a moment that you're on a small island surrounded by turquoise seas. The villa's close proximity to the water and its perch high up on a hill keeps it blessed with cooling sea breezes 24/7. Just watching the giant sky roll by, affecting the light and the ever-changing hues of the sea, is thoroughly enthralling. One needn't do more. Hilltop's pool played a big part in my choosing this property. It's new and beautifully done, finely-tiled and edged by coral stone. There is a built-in seat from which you can see the turquoise water! Plus, I love to stargaze at night and, I must say, there is no better way than on your back floating in a perfectly-temperate pool! Besides being in excellent condition, Hilltop Hacienda is located in one of Vieques' quieter neighborhoods. Even though the villa is at the far east end of the island, it's a very quick drive to town and an easy and pretty drive to the beaches in the nature preserve and Esperanza. Oh, and the wonderful reviews the prior owners received from their guests had a little something to do with my choice!
