About Jose "Waldo"
Our pleasure to host for you; The birdnest is operated by Ileana and me (Waldo), formally José. Ileana is a retired glass and mosaic artist. I am a former banker and business consultant in Puerto Rico and South America, very glad to be retired. Vieques was our choice for its beauty and tranquility. Yes, we have to put up we lots of inconveniences but the rewards are overwhelming and very much worth it. Its a choice. As a spare activity I cook for my guests and folks that request of my services. My menu under yourpersonalcuisine although we can always be creative and work outside the menu. Check it out and let me know if I can cook for you. We have three children with very interesting lives. Our oldest daughter lives in the Amazons (now in Vieques) of Venezuela and you can visit her site at selvadentro. She is the proud mother of our two grand children. Natalia speaks; english, french, portuguese and spanish. Tamara is the jet set member of the family working in the tourism industry on behalf of Puerto Rico. She travels through Europe & Latin America. She speaks italian, english and spanish. Tammy is now based of Puerto Rico. (lucky for us). Alexis is the youngest and is a lawyer turned realtor turned entrepenuer , in short, a businessman working very hard at it. Alex speaks english and spanish. We hope that you like what I have prepared for you on this site. All is as is, no doctoring, no photo shop and trick pictures.. I am constantly adding things to the Nest in order to make your stay even more memorable. In all honesty, I do not believe you can find a studio with all the amenities and concierge services from me at these rates. I have been advised by some customers to raise my rates so people can think our place is of value. I refuse to do that. This thinking is what got us in the financial mess we live in today and professional marketers

Vieques is a very small island so to be very honest with you, distances should not matter that much to you in selecting a place to stay. What I would avoid is noisy areas and rooster colonies (if they bother you)....Our location is, I believe, very special for we are centered between the two main towns...in a very quiet area...
