My whole family had the pleasure of taking a week vacation and staying in Rick and Heidi's beautiful home in the laid back island of Vieques. Our communication with the owners prior, during, and after our visit was excellent. They also employ a property manager, Ron, who lives across the street and was available at any time for questions and also offered pick up and drop off at the local ferry to Fajardo. The house was a great size to fit our family. We spent the majority of our time on the open air porch upstairs that has spectacular views and catches the daily breezes perfectly. We also utilized the downstairs kitchen and outdoor grill daily. Both kitchens were stocked very well with all basic cookware and necessities. Beach and bath towels were plentiful, but the house also has laundry which we definitely used during our visit. The beds were all comfortable and each room has AC if needed, but the windows provided delightful breezes. The pool is not large in size but definitely fun for kids or for a quick dip to cool off or to catch one last swim for the day. The best part about this house and location is the proximity to a beautiful beach that we accessed daily. The walk barely takes 5 minutes and leads to a sandy shore full of sea glass and crystal blue and green water. Moderate current but definitely swimable water for all ages. Wild horses can also wind up exploring the beaches on occasion. Heidi and Rick's home is stocked with many beach chairs and sand toys. As much as we loved this beach, it was also exiting to explore some of the other magnificent beaches on the island. Rental cars are recommended but taxis are also available for low costs per person. Heidi and Rick offer recommendations on beaches and restaurants to visit. Maps and books on the island are also around the house, along with CDs and movies for indoor entertainment. Overall, we are all very happy with our experience in Vieques and at this beautiful home. Hope to visit again soon!
