We enjoyed our stay greatly. The pool is wonderful as is the patio. The beds were comfortable. The relative downsides: The kitchen is tiny and sparsely supplied if you like to cook. The gas grill doesn't light with a switch--you have to stick a lighter into it to catch the grill on fire. The TV is small and hard to watch and there are roosters and peacocks that woke us up at 4 in the morning. The dishes were adequate but plastic (I suppose to prevent breakage) and the washer had a broken knob that made it hard to use. We had to go and buy paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, and ice since the house was not supplied. Not a big deal, but thats why it is 4 stars instead of 5. Overall a great value and a nice place to stay. I recommend ear plugs for the roosters/peacocks.
Beutiful property. One Million Dollar view from swiming pool. Very clean small house, good for 4 adults or 4 person family. Unbelievable nice landscaping and swiming pool. House has everything what you need. There are two outside grills where you can grill fresh fish or lobsters purchased from fish market which is located next to ferry. Very convenient location in the middle of island. We will choose such house for our next vacation.
This was my 2nd stay at the property and there's not much more I can say than I did in my first review ("Magnifico.") It's a magical property with excellent views with a nice beachy/homely feel to it. The pool and view are obviously the cream of the property. You have basically everything you could possibly ask for at an unbeatable value. To cap it off the owner goes above and beyond with respect to advice/help before and during your stay so your $ is going to a deserving proprietor.
With respect to Vieques itself, there are plenty of awesome nice/casual places to eat and drink. But the key to the island is to rent a Jeep (from Maritza's) and visit every beach you can and figure out which one(s) you like best. I will be a lifelong visitor and I will come back to this property for as long as they will have me!
The only thing the place could use is a microwave, but like i said, it basically has everything you could need for your stay. Feel confident in booking this location, you will be thankful you did.
Exceptional property on Vieques!
Jolyon Bowman's lovely home on Vieques was surely the highlight of our recent family trip to Vieques. The property is perched on a beautiful hillside with distant views to the Caribbean Sea. The house is bright and open, spotlessly clean, with a well stocked kitchen and ample linens. The most wonderful aspect of the property, however, was outside! We all loved the terrific 8 foot deep infinity pool, lovely patios with tasteful and practical furniture, and beautiful planting a throughout the property. Grilling in the evening amidst the glow of the patio and pool lights was wonderful! Nothing we needed had been omitted, from garbage bags to beach equipment! Jolyon Bowman's communication prior to and during our stay was outstanding and he graciously allowed us to extend our stay by a day, as we couldn't bear to leave! His caretaker, Dennis, was extremely helpful and accommodating throughout our stay. This exceptional property is truly a gem and one that we hope to return to in the very near future!

The Perfect Little Villa with a Vista!
This hillside villa is kinda perfect.
Firstly, it's really cute AND comfortable! It had all the modern comforts that you want on vacation but still felt like a "locals" house in that it had the "feel" of the island. Great colors, fabulous views, beautiful garden, lovely pool!
Secondly, the location is ideal in that it's just a few minutes one way or another to beautiful beaches (and this is coming from someone who is NOT a beach girl) and great dinners out. And if you don't feel like going out, you just step out your front door to stunning views of the water and wildlife reserve. I was just charmed sitting on the outside verandah listening to the bird calls and awed by the peacocks who came for a visit! And in the evenings, we would just grab a glass of Rose and sit out under the stars enjoying the cool breezes, free of mosquitos! (I say this because they love me and it's always a concern of mine.)
Finally, the owners were very helpful with information and organized when it came down to getting us where we needed to be! They went the extra mile to answer my questions and share some of their island insider tips! They made it such an easy stay.
We are already scheming when we will be able to get back. LOVED IT!
Great Vieques House! Highly Recommend!
Just returned from Vieques and had a great stay at Caribbean Vista. Both the house and the pool were better than expected and that was tough to do - given the great pictures of the pool. The house was on small side, but perfect for three of us. The house was clean and comfortable and it had a nice bathroom. The listing should include pictures of the bathroom as it was nice, especially the shower. There is another house immediately behind the house, but not once did I see or hear anyone from that house.
The house is in a great location, less than 5 minutes from Isabel Segunda in one direction and 5 minutes from the entrance to the National Wildlife Refuge in the other direction (where my favorite beaches are: La Chiva (Blue Beach), La Plata (Silver Beach, and Pata Pieta (Secret Beach)). Sun Bay and Navio Beach are also close by.
Make sure you go to Coqui Fire Cafe, but make a reservation (they only have 7 tables). Conuco, El Quenepo, and Next Course were also excellent (although El Quenepo and Next Course were on the expensive side). At Coqui Fire, the pork carnitas were out of this world. At Conuco, the chicken fricassee was also outstanding (as were the mango margaritas). If you're looking for a great breakfast, you should go over to the W Hotel. I have stayed at the W on my prior trips to Vieques, but enjoyed the privacy of Caribbean Vista so much more.
Finally, the owner of the house promptly answered all my inquiries both before and after I committed to renting.
