Stop at the Green Store on the way for some beach snacks and drinks.
Great restaurant in center of island - not to be missed.

About Peggie Stauffer
I fell in love with the island on my first visit. I were hooked ever since! Favorite beach is by far Blue Beach. But every time I snorkel a new underwater landscape becomes my favorite!!
Peggie Stauffer purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Peggie Stauffer chose Esperanza
The house is so comfortable for a great vacation. Almost any amenity you need. The house is close to everything. It is a very walkable area, but there are so many beautiful beaches to see...so a car is a must for at least part of the trip!!
What makes this Villa unique
Favorite moment in the morning is watching the wild horses head to the beach from the wrap around windows...favorite moment in the evening is watching the wild horses come back from the beach. The kitchen is in the front of the house and is open to the dining and living area. It is a great gathering space. The back covered lanai with built in seating is great for afternoon reading and a nap!

We love Vieques!
We had a very nice stay in your Vieques house. The house was equipped with everything that we needed for our family, and Joeanna was very pleasant and helpful. The location of the home is within walking distance to beaches, restaurants, small stores and the bakery. (A car is recommended in order to see all of the beautiful beaches). We would not hesitate to recommend your house to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Vieques!
Thank you Cindy. I love when people love Vieques as I do!! I am so happy you enjoyed my Vieques Island home. Thank you for the referrals. Come back soon!!
All I ever wanted and more
From the moment I walked through the door, I felt welcomed! This house has everything you would want for a visit to Vieques. We rented a car for the week and I was glad I did for a first timer in Vieques. I got to explore the island and came to the realization, there is very little I can't experience on foot! From the house you can walk to the beach, snorkle and stop by the green store on the way home for provisions. The Malecon is a few minutes walk from the house where breakfast, lunch and dinner are at your fingertips. Pickups for the bio bay tours and off island snorkeling commence on the Malecon. Belly Buttons for breakfast became a staple. Peggie the owner and Hector the property manager were there to answer any question about the island we had. I have no need to look any further for a place to stay in Vieques. Peggie's, with the outdoor charcoal grill and beautiful surroundings is superb!
It is so great to hear from visitors who love the island and truely enjoy my guest house and all its amenities. As this guest says...A car is nice to rent for your first time to Vieques to explore. I suggest renting for at least a few days to explore the island and some of the out of the way beaches; yet, keep in mind that walking will get you feeling part of the island life in no time.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Vieques Island house. The house was plenty big for us (we were just two people). Despite 4 bedrooms, it's not a big house, but with 2 bathrooms, and the outside patio and front porch, there's plenty of room. The location was nice - it's in a neighborhood in Esperanza, within walking distance of the Malecon and the Green Store (handy for basic groceries) - but far enough away from the strip to be quiet at night. We liked Esperanza much better than Isabel Segunda; it's closer to the best beaches.
The house has pretty much everything you'd want - beach towels, chairs, snorkel gear, etc. and it's very comfortable. It's a bit lived in, but that worked for us, since we didn't want anything fancy. The owner bought a new charcoal grill that we put together, and it worked great.
I recommend having a car. While you can walk to some beaches from the house, it's much easier with a car, and then you can explore the many fabulous beaches in the Refuge and beyond.
The owner was very nice and easy to work with, and the house managers were terrific - they picked us up at the airport, drove us to our rental car and showed us to the house.
I'd recommend this house to anyone. And, if you go out to eat, the Next Course is very good, as is el Quenepo. Duffy's is fine for lunch.
This was a terrific home and location. We enjoyed EVERYTHING about the home! The kitchen (where everyone congregates was terrific). We spent many evenings out on the back porch playing games and having cocktail hour. We all certainly wish we were still there! The location is within walking distance of a beautiful beach, town, and grocery store. You must rent a car for the other beautiful sites. Thank you Peggie it was a WONDERFUL stay.
We liked the property a lot. It has 4 real bedrooms so it can sleep up to 8 people. There are all kinds of supplies that can be used by the renter, masks, fins, snorkels, frisbees, dvds etc. It's in a good location, only 5 or so minutes walk from downtown Esperanza where there are beaches and restaurants. Great place to stay. There were 3 wild horses that hung out near the property that were a treat to see each day. The property was quiet and very safe. 2 thumbs up.
The wild horses walk to the beach in the morning and back in the evening...well actually they meander. The horses are one if the reasons I designed the kitchen and dining area in the front of the house! The yard is fenced ...so no worries.
Nice house for a family vacation
The house is very nice, well decorated and clean. It's stocked with beach gear and snorkel equip.
The negatives would be that it's a bit cramped inside the house with very little living room space and no communal dining area. There is a nice outside area but the level of Mosquitos stopped us from using it.
We would absolutely recommend renting a car to get around the island. Taxis are easily available but a car would be preferential.
Mosquitos can be pesky at times. Mosquitos are active after a rain in early morning and in evening. Mosquitos don't like breezes or wind. We have fans installed in the ceiling of the lanai as well as 2 large box fans. When mosquitos are active, these work very well to keep them at bay so that you can enjoy the outside living and dining space as well as the inside living space.
There is no formal dining room in the house. Rather we designed the kitchen/dining areas beautiful counter as a large open area so all can sit and talk or play games or do puzzles. When we remodeled the house we moved the kitchen/dining to the front of the house so that the area is center of activity.
Very walkable location, but if you plan on being on Vieques for a few days or more, rent a car to see the rest of the island and all the other beautiful beaches.
