We travel a lot and usually use VRBO's when on vacation. This is by far one our favorites. It truly is an oasis in paradise. The place is not large but the layout is excellent so in the end it has more than enough room to feel comfortable (we were a couple that prefers to spend time together other than when asleep). The beds are good, many fans around (and in each bedroom) to keep the air moving, and the living room is comfortable to relax in at night. And if you think the Vieques air is too hot (which I did not), there are air conditioners in each bedroom.
By far our favorite part of this VRBO was the back living area and pool. They have managed to create a backyard that feels very secluded and not in a bad way. The outdoor furniture is both attractive and comfortable. The pool is small but lovely. Every morning we drank our coffee out back by the pool and started the day with a dip. Nothing like a dip in cool water to wake you up. The waterfall into the pool is both visually attractive and great white noise... it gives the feeling that you are all alone in the world (with whoever you want beside you!). Days were spent exploring or at the beach. We always ended our day back at the pool, either eating dinner at the outdoor table or just taking some time at home before heading out to dinner. Seriously - we spent two weeks there and were really sad to leave. We really hope to make it back to Vieques and if this place is available, we'll most certainly rent it again.
But any VRBO user knows that the property owner and property manager as just as important as the house. The place was immaculate. Extremely clean. Both Ray (owner) and Aurelio (manager) were fantastic. They kept in touch, even when we did not need anything. Aurelio gave us great tips about the island upon our arrival. And in the rare instance we did need something (the clothes washer was acting strange), Aurelio was there quickly and got the problem resolved with efficiency and without interrupting our vacation time.
The place is also walking distance to a beach with good snorkeling (sea glass beach) and many shops and restaurants. Driving to the other beaches takes about 20 minutes. The place was stocked well with beach chairs, coolers and an umbrella, all of which we used. Best restaurant in Isabel II is Coqui Fire... don't miss it! And remember, only visit Vieques if you want to stay on an island off of an island... and get what that means!
