Recent Vieques Island reviews
Welcoming and cute
"The Magnolia house was the perfect renal for my daughter and I. It was spacious, comfortable and had all of the comforts of home. It had a full kitchen, two bedrooms that were kept comfortably cool. Neighborhood was very nice And we had off street parking. Loretta was easy to deal with and made the rental process easy, Jay was the absolute best!! He answered all of my questions prior to arrival. Jay met us upon arrival and kept in touch to make sure we were doing ok during our entire trip to the Vieques. He informed us of anything that we needed to know while we were there. He went above and beyond to make sure and assist us to get back to San Juan during bad weather upon our departure, and therefore decreasing our stress and anxiety. I will definitely recommend the Magnolia house, Loretta and Jay."

The view and nights on the veranda make it all worth it!
"We must admit that we had to adjust our expectations upon arrival. The house was smaller and bit more "rustic" than what we had expected. But we soon learned that was the case with many things on this beautiful island. And as far as homes on this island go, The Reef House offers a spectacular view, great location and mid-to-higher tier of accommodation relative to other places on the island.
Overall, the home is a perfect place to enjoy your adventures on Vieques. The A/C in the bedroom is a life-saver (we stayed in July/August). It did take some adjusting to get used to the non-AC throughout the remainder of the home. The verandah/outdoor patio was perfectly appointed with comfortable chairs and two large tables that are great for outdoor dining. The awning is a nice touch to get out of the heat. The bugs of course are an issue but this is the case everyone on the island. We appreciated the basket of bug spray provided and brought some of our own.
The kitchen had everything we needed in the way of dishes, serving platters, tupperware and more. The fridge ran a little warm (didn't seal well) and the dishwasher didn't work every time, but we were fine with washing our own dishes. We appreciated the condiments and seasonings left behind by previous renters. We made it work!
The beds were super comfy and clean. We all had a great-night's sleep the whole week there. The bathrooms were fine (the big shower in the master is super convenient), but drainage in the guest shower was a small issue. The washer and dryer worked great and are a huge plus when washing beach towels and clothes.
We never really used the living area - mostly because we enjoyed the outside. The WiFi worked most of the time (a few times we had to reset it) but the satellite TV never worked (though that might have been a blessing in disguise). Lots of great books and info for visitors to use.
We also appreciated the beach chairs, umbrella and gear left behind. Perfect for throwing in a Jeep and hitting the beaches all day. Though larger groups may want to bring/buy/rent their own chairs (they only had 2 non-broken chairs), floats and snorkeling gear. And it may be worth buying your own cooler, too.
For the price and the location, we would recommend The Reef House to couples and older families traveling to Vieques."

"My friend and I stayed for a week over Labor Day weekend. This was our first visit to Vieques and it couldn't have been more perfect.
Isola is exactly as it was described in the listing and photos. A perfect beachfront location within walking distance to the main grocery store and town of Isabel Segunda. We loved eating outdoors on the terrace with picture perfect views and watching the stunning sunsets while floating in the pool that overlooks the ocean. The house itself is modern and well appointed and had everything we needed to cook many delicious meals. The blender was fantastic for smoothies and frozen drinks such as pina coladas and having a washer/dryer was awesome so we could wash our beach towels often. There is only a/c in the main bedroom, so if you're sleeping upstairs in the loft it can be a little hot, but with the ceiling fans and 2 standing fans provided it cools down quickly. We used mosquito coils/citronella candles in the evenings and never had an issue with mosquitos. We rented a Jeep for the entire stay and loved exploring the island and all the amazing beaches every day.
Helen and Maria are both so lovely, helpful and accommodating. Helen was so welcoming, warm and friendly, she met us at the car rental place, took us back to Isola then showed us around the house and explained everything. We arrived earlier than the check in time and needed a later check out time and it wasn't an issue which we really appreciated. In every way this was the perfect, relaxing vacation that we were looking for and I would go back without any hesitation. I would highly recommend Isola and the island of Vieques to anyone who is looking to unwind, unplug and de-stress from daily life."
