Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to Vieques and first time staying at Los Bohios. The property is stunning and fit 3 families perfectly. The pool was perfect for the little ones and the hot tub was a bonus! The view from the pool and living room was just beautiful. The property is very private so you don't need to worry about seeing or hearing any neighbors. The kids loved running around the huge yard and seeing the horses surrounding the property. We enjoyed grilling and playing board games at night. There are coolers, snorkel gear, beach chairs AND a beach tent for the kids in the laundry room to use on the beach. The only thing we didn't have were buckets and shovels for the kids, but we made due without. There are plenty of spices and left over condiments from previous guests ( we also left some for the next guests) which was nice. There is no AC but you really don't need it. All 3 bedrooms have ceiling fans (master has 4) which provided enough circulation and the cool breeze kept us comfortable at night. We didn't sleep with the doors open just for fear of getting bit by mosquitos. Unfortunately the heater on the pool wasn't working so we didn't swim at night but the hot tub was perfect. There is a house alarm which we used when we were out but felt very safe the entire time we were there. We ate out a few times in Esperanza but mostly cooked/grilled at the house. We previously stayed in Isabel and enjoyed Esperanza so much more. The strip of shops and restaurants is very cute and has a beautiful view of the ocean. There are also 3 markets close by to buy food and alcohol. The beaches here (in my opinion) are some of the most beautiful in the caribbean. Crystal clear water, white sand and no rocks or shells. Our favorites are Blue beach (la Chiva) and Pata Prieta. We found these to be the least crowded and had the calmest water. We were fortunate to have gone the week when there was no moon so we did the bioluminescent bay tour and really enjoyed it. You definitely need to rent a car to get around the island. The house is located on top of a hill and nothing is within walking distance. Colleen the property manager was very helpful with getting us info on car rentals, ferry times and flight info. We hope to come back again soon!

Location, view, amenities, Los Bohios does it all

  • 5 of 5

We decided to try the island of Vieques for our annual family holiday vacation. Our daughter found Los Bohios on line and after several conversations with Colleen, the property manager, we decided to try the house. It's not easy to get family members residing in different states with different needs and different arrival and departure dates coordinated but Colleen helped with many of the tasks including buying diapers, detergent, beach tents, snorkel gear, etc. Ahead of time for our 6 month old grandson. She also coordinated our rental car pickup and gave us valuable info regarding how to navigate this sleepy island. The property itself was clean, well appointed, the pool area with views was not only lovely but perfect for a baby. The "bohios" being separate bedrooms/bathrooms with a central living/kitchen area were perfect for our grown children in terms of privacy. The games and puzzles were a nice distraction and no one missed television. Being located outside of Esperanza but close for some meals was also great. We loved our

stay and hope to go back next year!

Great location with amazing views!!! Perfect for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on here and on their website do not do this place justice! Los Bohios far exceeded our expectations with it's lush greenery, vast views of the Caribbean ocean, cleanliness, and spacious accommodations. We loved everything about this property and we can't wait to come back. Colleen the property manager was extremely helpful with all of our questions and gave us lots of information about the island itself. You must pick Los Bohios if you are choosing to travel to Vieques! You will not be dissappointed!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from the most amazing vacation in Vieques! Our stay at Los Bohios was, quite honestly, the best part of our time there. Due to our early morning risers, ages 5 and 7, we were all ready to hit the pool by 7am every day. We cranked the tunes, opened up the doors, and enjoyed our daily pool parties. While far enough away from others as to not be a nuisance, we were still close enough to activity to not be completely isolated. Esperanza is about a five minute drive from the house.

The kitchen is very well-appointed! Anything you could possibly need is within reach.

The three outdoor showers were a highlight as well.

There is no air conditioning, but it's really not needed. The only times I wished I had it were when I would wake in the night to the serenade of the coquí.

We felt like we were in good hands with Colleen as our contact on the island. She is a great resource for the inside scoop on the island. She was extremely easy to get in touch with both before our vacation, and while in Vieques. She was also able to address any questions or concerns I may have had. Thank you so much, Colleen! We can't wait until we come to visit again!

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

I visited Los Bohios while it was under construction and thought it was an amazing place. Everything was confirmed following our stay. The grounds are magnificent and made for an ideal getaway with the family. There are issues with internet connectivity which should be addressed and I believe there should be satellite TV available.

Los Bohios. . . Good choice

  • 5 of 5

If vacationing on a laid back island with beautiful beaches appeals to you, consider staying at Los Bohios. Our family has been coming back to Los Bohios for many years because we love it. The setting on a hillside affords views of the village of Esperanza and the sea beyond. The outside area around the pool is a great place to watch the sun rise and set. The heated pool and jacuzzi offer relaxation and just enough exercise! The three separate bohios provide privacy which is quite special in a vacation rental. The inside and outside seating options are plentiful. The kitchen is well provisioned, but the location makes the excellent local restaurants accessible as well. Chairs, towels and coolers lend to wonderful trips to the many beaches. Do consider staying at Los Bohios . . .just not when we want to!
