Esperanza Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 recently stayed in this wonderful cottage in Esperanza. This was our second time in Vieques but first time staying in Esperanza. We were welcomed by Alberto who is fabulous! He checked up on us later in the week and gave us a loaf of fresh baked pumpkin bread, he's so sweet! We were able to drop off our bags just before our check in time. This made things very convenient for us so we were able to visit the Malecon and have a few much needed drinks!

The house was very clean and well stocked with extra sheets, blankets, towels, and beach towels. I believe there were 5 chairs (which worked out well for us!) and a few snorkeling items in the house.

The A/C worked really well at cooling the house quickly. I wish the windows had screens so you could open the windows. There is some sort of plastic film where the screens should be (perhaps to help keep the house cold when the A/C is on?).

I think the kitchen is fairly well stocked but if you have a large group, be prepared to wash dishes each day. It could also use a few more ice trays for the freezer. I wish the house had a cooler for taking drinks to the beach but we went to the local grocery store and purchased a foam cooler for $5. Hopefully it's still there when you visit! We also had to purchase a drink pitcher for the house to make iced tea.

The car was a very nice addition to the house. We had to rent a jeep when visiting in 2016 and it's not cheap! While the rodeo is nothing glamorous and the speedometer doesn't work, it gets you where you need to go. This house is also very close to a grocery store and bakery (3 minute walk) and the malecon/beach (10 minute walk).

The washer and dryer were an added bonus for the trip as well!

You'll have some animal friends stop by, chickens, roosters, cats, and horses. They're all friendly, just don't feed them!

I'd absolutely recommend staying in this house if you're visiting Vieques. It's in the best location on the island and a quiet part of Esparanza. If we ever visit again (which I'm sure we will) this is where we'll be staying!

Rustic Vieques at its best

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cosy cottage-well appointed, clean and in a great location!! Easy walking distance to many fun beach restaurants on the Strip (Malecon). Enjoyed fine evenings at Lazy Jack's and at Bananas and had a great breakfast at Belly Buttons- great food/great service. Alberto also was very good to deal with-would stay at this place again anytime!!

Charming house with everything we needed. Another great trip!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th trip to Vieques but our first time staying in Esperanza. We were travelling with our 2 kids, 19 and 22, and we wanted to stay closer to town. This house was perfect and the location is great. There is a bakery and small grocery store just around the corner. The Malecon, with all its shops and restaurants, is only a short walk. The neighborhood seemed safe and quiet. Friendly neighbors. The island car is a big bonus and was perfect for running all over the island. The house came with everything we needed and is in great shape. Very clean. Mikkell has done a lot of recent updates including a new front door with a convenient keypad lock, new stove, washer and dryer and A/C units. There are plenty of towels, snorkel gear, beach chairs and even a hair dryer. The only thing we picked up was a small ice chest for the beach which we left at the house. We like to cook and the kitchen was well equipped. The bedrooms were large with very comfortable beds. Mikkell was easy to work with, responsive and accommodating.

The highlights of our trip included snorkeling at Mosquito pier and the sunken boat off Esperanza beach, sea glass hunting, kayak fishing behind Blue beach, Playa Negra and a couple lazy days at Playa Grande and the eastern refuge beaches. There is great fresh seafood for sale at the pescaderia in Isabel. Coqui Fire was a great dinner. We can’t wait to go back and will definitely stay here again.

Very good location and all amenities available

  • 5 of 5

The property is located very close to the beaches and a number of restaurants and shops. It is very spacious, AC in all rooms, clean towels and available laundry and dryer options; just remember to carry soap and shampoo. Mikkell was super responsive, helpful and suggested a number of good options for the bio bay and transportation from the ferry. A car was also available for use and was perfect for a short trip around the island. All 6 of us enjoyed our stay and would recommend the property for anyone planning to spend some quality time on the island.

I'll be planning my next trip

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay, especially for the money. It is spacious, clean and has a washer and dryer for your use. If you bring your own shampoo and ground coffee you'll have everything you need to have an amazing Vieques experience. Good communication from the owners. It is a convenient location being walking distance from the "strip" with lots of shopping and bars/restaurants.
