Beautiful property & a pool with a view!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Cima del Mundo made our Vieques vacation exceptional! We rented the 3-bedroom Del Mar suite, which is just steps away from the gorgeous pool. The suite is beautifully designed and well appointed. It features lovely beach-themed artwork throughout.

We were picked up at the airport, provided with bottles of cold water and given a “get reacquainted” tour of the island. The fridge was stocked with bottled water and beer, however, we had no problem drinking the tap water. There was complimentary coffee in the cupboard. The kitchen had everything we needed.

The view from the terrace is extraordinary at any hour of the day or night. We watched the iguanas sunning themselves in the trees below the property, catching the first rays of morning light. The sunsets are exceptional. If there is a rain shower, rainbows are not uncommon. At night the stars shine like jewels.

We appreciated the strong Wi-Fi and had fun sharing music and comedy acts on the Bluetooth speaker. Beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, noodles, body boards and a cooler were all provided.

Best of all, the property has a backup generator so you won’t be without power for long if the island-wide generator goes down. There were several power outages during our stay, but they didn’t really bother us.

Thanks to the onsite laundry, we came home with clean clothes, which made the post-vacation period much less taxing. We stayed 16 nights and would love to return. I recommend it highly.

We endeavor to provide our guests with the ability to pack a carry on and escape to Vieques. It’s good to know there are no “fashion police” on Vieques. Thank you, also, for choosing to visit Vieques and supporting her as she rebuilds! We hope to see you again!

Perfect place to stay in Vieques

  • 5 of 5

We decided to visit Vieques for Easter and stayed at Del Mar Suite for three nights. WOW!!! What a beautiful place! The property is located at the top of a hill in a very quiet area. The apartment is equipped with a security system and we felt very safe. The place is in excellent condition and is nicely decorated, everything with great taste. It was immaculately clean and fully stocked with everything we needed for our stay. We had breakfast every morning in the balcony with stunning views of the ocean and Puerto Rico. The pool was the perfect spot to watch the sunset and to relax after a day at the beach.

The owners of the property, Deborah and Dennis, live up-stairs but we never felt they were in the way. Deborah was a great host; you can tell that she really wants her guests to feel at home and to have the perfect vacation.

Come here and stay at Cima del Mundo, you won’t regret it for a second. Thanks Deborah and Dennis, you have a beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review! I'm glad you felt secure while staying at Cima.While Vieques is very safe island, we felt a security system would be an overall better option than an in-room safe. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and felt secure at Cima.

Shhh don't spread the word

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the island 3 times now staying in a different part of town each time. This was further away from the towns and beaches than where we have stayed in the past, but the extra 5 minute drive did not put a damper on anything this condo had to offer. Beautiful pool, well kept clean property, comfortable beds and quality linens. I like to rent and feel like I still have some of the luxuries of a hotel stay, and the plush towels and high thread count sheets do the job here. There wasn't much we needed that wasn't already provided... we will be back again I think!

Owner's Response: While staying at a vacation rental, there are always reminders of home: cooking, laundry, etc. We try to not only provide all you will need to "live an island life", we try to offer a bit of pampering, as well. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return. Many thanks for taking the time to submit your complimentary thoughts.

Open & Airy Inside, Fabulous View Outside

  • 5 of 5

If I had to plan our vacation over again, I would DEFINATELY stay in the Del Mar suite again. Our family of four, including two teenage boys, had ample space. Our teens enjoyed each having their own rooms, although there was enough room for 2 more people to sleep. The attention to detail in the decor made it feel even more beachy, like little fish printed on the sheets and a shell motif on the silver wear. The laundry room was awesome for us, tucked away just a few steps from our door. The pool was a nice extra, and takes advantage of the amazing view. The island is fairly small, so we could go anywhere from this location within a reasonably short drive time. Deborah was our host alone, as Dennis was away for the birth of their new grandchild. The fact that she stayed to manage the property instead of traveling with him is proof that they take this business seriously and do everything they can to accommodate their guests. I can't say enough about this place!!

Best. Place. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

My feelings about Vieques and Cima del Mundo go hand in hand - best. place. EVER!! My husband and I stayed here for the 3rd time this past January and when Deborah picked us up at the airport it truly felt like a homecoming. She and Dennis excel as hosts and do not miss a thing when it comes to making you feel like their place is your own. They keep it exceptionally clean and are constantly working to update what the sun and sea air can do to property. They are there when you need them and quietly watching over the home while you go off on your adventures for the day. The pool is really a highlight for us at the end of the day - sitting under the umbrellas or floating in the water overlooking the spectacular view is the perfect end to any day on the island before deciding where to dine or firing up the grill. Breakfast and coffee on the patio was our planning station for the "beach of the day" and when we were thinking of fishing one day Deborah hooked us up with a very helpful guide. Do not pass up this home - it is beautiful, well stocked with outdoor toys, fully air-conditioned (although not needed with the nice breeze through the windows!!), and the pictures truly do not do it justice.

We can't wait to plan our next trip to Vieques and get back "home"!!

Island Gem

  • 5 of 5

We had been to Puerto Rico the previous two Januarys and loved the weather but I was searching for a real small island get away with no big hotels or large condominium buildings and Vieques fulfilled my dream! The atmosphere in this little island is totally low key with the most beautiful and quiet beaches I have ever experienced. And staying at Cima del Mundo wrapped it up. We felt we were truly on top of the world as the name implies. Deborah and Dennis were fantastic hosts, they waited for us at the airport even after our plane was delayed by an hour. They picked us up with beer and water and showed us around the town of Isabel II and then took us to pick up our rented jeep. The apartment is lovely, very well appointed with beach chairs, beach towels and snorkeling equipment. They provided enough coffee for several days as well as soap, shampoo, conditioner and toilet paper. Every morning we sat in the balcony drinking coffee and overlooking the sea between Vieques and the big island of PR. Many days we could see rain storms in the distance and then fabulous rainbows. The local people are extremely friendly and do not mind the tourists which by the way are not many in January. We used our jeep and explored probably 3/4 of the island roads which can be pretty rough. If you go, do not skip the sugar mill ruins and hike around the area. When we go back we will take the sugar mill tour sponsored by the Historical Trust in Esperanza. There is nothing else the O'Keeffes could have done to make for a wonderful week!
