Great place on a super island
Our family, ages 5, 8, 12, 14, 39, 40, 43, 45, 70, and 73, all had a great time. The house was wonderful with great private spaces and great meeting all together spaces. The pool was wonderful. The laundry with double washer and dryer was a wonderful feature as well as all the beach toys, beach toys, snorkeling gear, and beach chairs. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
The house was perfect for us. Location was great, views fantastic, and having the pool was perfect. Would rent it again!
The property was clean and better than expected! Melyssa checked in with us several times during our stay. We especially loved the pool and outdoor setting!
Truly an island of enchantment. Love the property and the home.
We had an amazing time in Vieques and loved our stay at Villa Altamira. The house was clean and had amazing views and the pool was great. We had a dog who visited daily. So cute! We loved the horses and dogs walking all around the island and waking to the sounds of roosters crowing. The property manager Melyssa was sweet. We had a bit of a language barrier, but she tried hard and answered all of our questions. She didn’t meet us at the airport but did send gps location. One night we lost power around 8:00 pm and didn’t get it back until 9:30 the next morning. There should be a backup generator. The house got very hot and we were worried about our refrigerated food.
Other tidbits: One queen bed dipped in the middle, and a mini fridge is not really an efficiency kitchen. The air conditioning in the bedrooms feels great when you walk in, but warms up quickly. Air conditioning on the main floor would be great. A good thing to mention is that the stores are all closed on Sunday. We were thankful that we had gone to the store on Saturday when we arrived. Walking into town for breakfast and dinner was really nice. Even with the hills. We really loved the outdoor Mexican restaurant, the burritos were excellent. We were there off season (first week of October). It was the absolute best time to be there. We had the beaches to ourselves, it was like we were on our own private island. With that though, many restaurants were closed. Luckily the ones that were open were all fabulous. Our 2 favorites in Esperanza were Lazy Jacks and Bananas. There was no outdoor speaker system, koi pond, or fruit trees. So maybe the description should be updated. Unfortunately the coffee maker stopped working mid week. Suggestion, maybe have a back up coffee pot. Fortunately we made some manually. WiFi was a bit sketchy. Didn’t work on ground floor or top floor. Hot water didn’t work good on ground floor and water pressure was weak at times. I’d suggest bringing a tube or raft for the ocean. We bought some and left them there for others. The house did have snorkeling equipment, chairs, and an umbrella which was great. Most beaches don’t have much shade. Although, some of this sounds negative, none of it affected our stay. (If we couldn’t have coffee, that would have been a deal breaker. Lol). Just suggestions to make the stay even better. The house was cozy and comfortable and perfect for 3 couples. We all had our own space and privacy. We definitely recommend Villa Altamira
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We appreicate the feedback and do our best to address all of guests needs. SO sorry to hear about the coffee maker. Did u let Melyssa know? She would have brought you a new coffeemaker ASAP!! IWe completely understand the needs for coffee. Was the outdoor speaker system not working? There are speakers on the deck and poolside with an Ipod/phone dock under the TV? The fruit trees are there but were heavily damaged during the hurricane. we had lemons, plantains, banana's Yucca and passion fruit :( Re planting many this year. The AC's have always been ice cold and were just serviced so not sure why they would warm up? Thank you for letting us know. In any case we are glad you had a good vacation, Stay well and have a wonderful fall!
