About the property

Sleeps 8-11 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath

For your consideration I have a newly renovated 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in the heart of Esperanza on Vieques Island of Puerto Rico. Charming and quaint historical fishing village with a rich latin and taino history that has become a tourist hub due to it's prime location, views, social life and convenience without transportation. Drinking age is 18..

This house is a rustic escape from the everyday hustle and bustle with basic amenities of washer/dryer, clothesline, stove, oven, Charcoal grill, ceiling fans, a/c throughout, mosquito nets, showers, and full sized refrigerator. Our car is also available to be loaned out to respectful guests. There will be no refunds given for condition/ functionality of car, beach chairs, or snorkel gear. These items are purely for your convenience without charge.

* for parties larger than 11 people, you should contact me direct for a quote.

You may choose to stay in town, or walk to shack off malecon to rent a moped, or use a public taxi for transportation. The house is less than a 5 minute walk to beautiful beaches, restaurants, convenience and grocery stores, bakery/ pizza shop, el malecon (promenade) and gift shops. Also a short walk to meeting and pick up location for the biobay.

The bio bay in vieques is the brightest bioluminescent bay in the world with photoplankton that glow bright green when stirred. An amazing site to behold and a must stop on this trip!

The property boasts over a dozen mature fruit trees including: banana, mango, guava, noni, papaya, sour orange, avacado, limon, and sugar apple. Come visit and live off the land!

The waters edge is less than 1000 feet from the door and El Malecon is just two short blocks away. Two bedrooms have queen beds and the third bedroom has 2 bunk beds and a spare luxe queen inflatable mattress for larger families located in the chest in living room. Sofa and loveseat in the living room with a swinging hammock on the front porch and small sitting area. Washing machine/ dryer out back on small patio. Linens, towels, kitchenware, coffee maker and other basics will be provided for your stay complimentary, there is also a few sets of snorkel gear, and beach chairs for your use complimentary. Enjoy the constant tradewinds that make this location especially serene on the cooler nights. On those scorching hot days take a siesta after a morning beach break with cold air conditioning in every room!

Off street gated parking for those that wish to secure their vehicle over night. Safe, quiet and friendly neighborhood with the culture and history you came to feel, taste and see. Stop into the visitor center a short distance from the house to learn more about the history of the island and people.

We look forward to your visit to the magical island!

Very nice home. Very clean and well maintained.

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable home. It was clear that the owners took great care to make sure we were comfortable. Plenty of towels, including a couple of beach towels in the car. Folding beach chairs were in the closet and the kitchen was fully stocked with all the cooking utensils we might need. A bigger coffee pot would have been nice but the one there served it's purpose, we just had to make a couple of pots every morning. A very short walk to the beach and the Malecon where all the action and good food is. The car was not the most luxurious I've driven but it got us every place we wanted to go and back, plus a couple of places we shouldn't go.

All in all I would stay here again in a heart beat.

great location, walkable to local restaurants and beach. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and in a great location. They owners provided great information by texting us the day before we arrived. The car they provided for us had a flat but they sent Alberta to fix it and we had by the time we needed for exploring the island. Alberta so helpful. I would recommend this place made alot great memories there!

It is a no-frills house! It was pretty hot in August, the air conditioning didn't cool the one bedroom it's in down very well, and the water it produced had to be emptied every few hours or there would be water everywhere. There wasn't much to cook with (but there were cockroaches!), but all the restaurants are so close we mostly ate dinner out anyway. There were more avocados and mangos than any one family could eat in a lifetime in the back yard! Don't expect it to be quiet, many roosters and chickens come with the property, they just wander around town like the horses, dogs, and cats. The house came with two very sweet cats, they just hang out on the porch. We stayed six nights and always felt safe, it was nice to be able to park our rental car behind a fence too. It was great to be so close to everything and the Wifi worked well once we got it figured out. Angel was easy to get ahold of when there were problems, and very helpful. This house was definitely an experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and feedback, we have already began to make upgrades on the property so that future guests can be more comfortable during their stay. We are updating the AC's this month along with making major renovations to better the place and make it more homey and less campy than your experience. We will also need to put a large fence in the back to keep out the island chickens but for now we will have to rely on the sound machine to drown out the noise. Thank you for your stay and feedback, best wishes

Perfect vacation spot for our family

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little beach cottage and it perfectly suited our family of 5. It was close walking distance to the malecon, bars, beaches, stores, and the bakery for fresh pizza, bread and breakfast. It was nice to have an address, as this is uncommon on the island, but it made the house easy to find and give directions to the cab, biobay pickup, and car rental agency. If you are looking for an affordable rental with island vibes and fresh fruit during your stay this is the the spot. We were able to sit on the porch in the hammock and watch locals riding their horses down street while we sucked on mangoes and sugar apples off the trees. The beds were comfortable and we even had internet to stream movies. Angel and Mikkell were very easy to reach and made sure we had a local connection on the island in case we had any emergencies. The place is gated and we had the security of parking our car behind a locked gate in the driveway. Our visit to VIEQUES was a magical experience and a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you again and we look forward to visiting again this summer.
