Hidden Gem tucked away in Esperanza, easy walk to Malecon & Sun Bay beach

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

This sweet home is located off the beaten path. The only traffic you'll see is your vehicle coming in and out of the driveway. Yet, a 5 minute walk will bring you to the Malecon, a popular destination for sunsets over Esperanza harbor, fishing, shopping, and restaurants. Walk another 10 minutes along the shoreline to the island's stunning beach, Sun Bay.

The brightly colored home offers a full, well appointed kitchen, small living area with loveseat, air conditioned bedroom with queen size bed, full bathroom, closet & storage space, ceiling fans in every room, screened in porch with high top table for 2, cement deck with picnic table, access to washing machine & large clothesline (at rear of house).

Attached, with a separate entrance and keys, is a large bedroom with a queen size bed and full bathroom, sitting area, storage area and access to washing machine & large clothesline (at rear of house). No air conditioning, 2 ceiling fans.

There is an outside shower and plenty of parking space. Banana, papaya, mango and pomegranate grow in season. The well maintained yard is fenced and the gate can be locked. All doors and windows are secure.

We are a 2 minute walk to a well stocked colmado/grocery store and a bakery offering the best brownies on the island.

Bargain: This is the first season this property is being listed (Oct 2016) and since there are no reviews, the price is lower.

And, if you need to stay longer - this hidden gem is for sale!

What else? I teach beach yoga on Sun Bay every Monday, Wednesday & Friday at 8:30am. Please join me for practice.

Perfect place in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent 5 days on Vieques and this house perfectly suited our needs! It is clean and comes with all the beach gear you can think of which came in handy when exploring all of the beautiful nearby beaches. The malecon, bars and restaurants are a short walk and there is a small grocery store right around the corner. We didn't spend too much time at the house but did enjoy the yard and hummingbirds. Christina was very helpful and easy to deal with. I definitely suggest renting a car to fully explore the island and all of the beaches. We also brought earplugs which we were happy to have when the roosters were making noise at night. Overall this place was perfect and Vieques is paradise!!!

Comfortable, simple and convenient

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I spent a week at the Hidden Gem house in Esperanza. This was a comfortable and simple, yet well appointed house convenient to everything Esperanza has to offer. This house is probably not for everyone, but if you are not fussy, you will be quite happy and comfortable here.

The plusses: easy to walk to anything you would need in Esperanza...The Malecon and all its restaurants and other attractions, the little grocery is around the corner. The house is very clean, bright and very well supplied. The beds are comfortable. There are numerous hammocks and hooks for hanging them. Ceiling fans aplenty keep the house comfortable (one bedroom has a/c, but you're not likely to need it). The kitchen is well outfitted, although we were advised that the oven was sketchy (no big deal). The house is also well supplied with beach gear: towels, mats, chairs, snorkel gear, coolers, icepacks, etc. The property managers Christina and Glenn were great with communication and getting us settled into the house, as well as taking care of anything that came up. Christina is a wealth of knowledge about what to do on Vieques.

The minuses: The back bedroom can get a little stuffy over the course of a warm day. Leaving the windows open and the fans running help, and it cools off nicely at night. Being a simple home on a tropical island, you may have the occasional small reptile or insect visitor. Not a big issue for us, but again if you are fussy about that sort of thing...One issue to be aware of, and this is not the fault of the house nor the owner, is nighttime noise. Esperanza is home to a LOT of dogs, chickens and roosters. The dogs and the roosters can be very noisy throughout the night. If you are a light sleeper, be advised.

All in all, we were very happy with this house.

What a lovely get away!!!! It was almost like we lived here!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very colorful and large (especially for only two!) For the price we could not be more pleased. The hosts were amazing! We ended up arriving later than scheduled because of the ferry (which if you are considering it just pay extra to have a flight to Vieques-it will be worth your time!) and they happily met us at the home with the keys and gave us recommendations on places to go and told us all about the island!

The house itself is in a GREAT location- it is very convienent to the grocery store and a lovely bakery. It is also extremely close to the boardwalk with all the shops and restaurants and of course the beaches :)

The kitchen is great! There is every type of appliance you can think of (including a blender) and lots of plateware and flatware. The bathrooms are a great size and they supply you with many towels and wash cloths. The only problem that we had was one of the toilets breaking during our stay but since they are replacing it this won't be a problem for you! And it was no big deal to us since we had another bathroom !

One of my favorite parts was the *bonus room* which had snorkeling equipment, coolers, hammocks ... pretty much everything you need while your here to enjoy yourself!!

The bedroom is nice. It is the only room with a.c. But this island is so fresh we didn't really need it. They also have ceiling fans in every room. The bed was comfortable.

And as if this wasn't great enough- there is a washer and clothes line to do laundry- detergent included!

Overall great experience and we would stay here again! Thanks Christina and Glenn! :)
