Joeanna & Hector are amazing people! Not just hosts, but amazing people. They made our stay on Vieques truly memorable, I work in a hotel and their understanding of "hospitality" truly shows. We definitely felt like old friends rather than guests. We stayed in the room attached to the house (there is a separate bungalow as well which looks awesome for 4 ppl). It was perfect for us. Comfortable bed, new A/C unit, good shower, nice kitchen with full size refrigerator (we cooked most of the time), snorkle gear, cooler, beach chairs, private patio, all well kept. We even borrowed one of Hector's trucks for a couple days to go to Esperanza. If you add all of this up, it turns out to be ONE HELL OF A DEAL! I even had a headache and forgot to pack aspirin, but one text and they came down in 5 minutes with some.WOW! I guess it's the small things. Their communication from the initial booking was great as well. We ended up meeting Hector on the ferry from Fajardo to Vieques and from that moment on we felt well taken care of. We can't say enough about Casita Ylan, but we know that we will return just to stay there. Thank you Joeanna y Hector por todos!
p.s. The beaches are spread out in Vieques and are not really close to good lodging. Most people seem to need a Jeep, even if you stay in Esperanza. Casita Ylan is 5 mins from the ferry and 15 mins from Esperanza beaches. It really makes it the best deal on the island!
