Vieques Island House Rental Photos and Description

1 or 3 BR, 1-2 BA, Sleeps 2-6, 9+ years rental history- check the guest reviews

Casa Dos Chivos is an attractively-decorated three-bedroom island house (sleeps 2-6) situated in the Los Chivos hills of Vieques, with panoramic ocean views. The upper level of the house, which can be rented as a separate 1-bdrm, consists of a very large great room (24 x 28 feet) with two seating areas, dining area, and a fully-equipped kitchen. A large balcony with panoramic ocean views wraps around the great room on two sides. Adjoining the great room is an air-conditioned master (king) bedroom with adjoining bath (with shower). A spiral staircase connects the balcony of the upper level with the renovated lower level, where there are another two air-conditioned bedrooms (queen and twin), bath (with shower), large, L-shaped living/dining room, and kitchenette. There is a fully-equipped laundry room and gated, key-locked carport downstairs, satellite TV on both floors and free WiFi throughout the house.

The house is perfect for 2 couples traveling together! Each couple gets their own floor and bathroom. A little distance and time away from the other pair will make the time you spend together all the better! Families also find the layout very accommodating for time spent at the house doing what you want.

Guestbook comments from the owner

[Excerpt of review posted by this guest on Tripadvisor]

"In terms of where to stay, we rented CASA DOS CHIVOS (the upstairs portion) for the week. Sufficient words do not exist to describe how beautiful the house is or how wonderful our time there was. The owners are extraordinary people and their property manager is a wonderful woman who is totally organized, helpful and available if needed but in the background respecting your privacy if not. The king bedroom has air conditioning and the space is beautifully decorated and maintained. everything you need is provided and there is just nothing so wonderful as grilling at night on the ENORMOUS open terrace looking over Isabelle and the ocean. the breeze is consistent and fabulous, and the view of the milky way at night is to die for. we spent most of our house time on the terrace eating dinner, playing scrabble, stargazing and drinking wine. GO. stay with them. you'll love it.

The house is huge and has a downstairs suite which can be rented as well if you have a family. There's no pool at the house which some would consider a disadvantage but which we actually liked as it would have been too easy to stay put!! the house is about 10 mins from Isabelle and 10 mins the other direction from the south shore beaches."

A wonderful, well managed property!

  • 5 of 5
We had a very enjoyable stay at Casa Dos Chivos. The information online, including the video accessed from their website, was very informative and accurate. The property manager, Renee, met us at a local landmark and led us to the house. She gave us good information about the area and showed us through the house, taking time to explain all pertinent information about the property.

Our first, and lasting impression, is that this is a beautiful property, well appointed, well maintained, and well managed. We were not disappointed in any way with our stay there. The house was clean and spacious. The view from the balcony was beautiful and we ate several meals there. We visited many beautiful beaches and did a tour of the bio bay. We had planned our trip to coincide with a new moon and the bio bay was amazing!

The property owners, Michael and Patrick, were informative during email exchanges before our visit. They have done a really great job creating a welcoming place to visit. We would not hesitate to visit this property again.

We Can't Stay Away

We Can't Stay Away

I don't want to sound sappy but Casa Dos Chivos is pure perfection…from the decor, to the location, to the comfort, to the solitude on a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. We've been coming here at the end of January for the past four years and now seriously cannot/would not consider going anywhere else. The house is, quite simply, our much loved home. It fits us to a T and we greet each day with joy and deep gratitude that we're able to spend a week each year in paradise. See, I told you I'd sound sappy. But, believe me, every word is true.

Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5
We loved almost everything about Los chivos .... my husband and I rented the top level 1 bedroom. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped. If you plan to prepare and cook your meals it is a great set up. The views are incredible and the king size bed is very comfortable. There are ceiling fans in every room including the bathroom, so there was always a lovely breeze throughout the house. There is a gas grill on the outside deck. The house has great books and the owners have left an invaluable book of information regarding the island which we found very useful. Renee, the house manager, was quick to respond to any questions or problems we had during our 6 day stay at Los chivos. We did have a problem with the gas grill, which was very dirty when we arrived. By the 3rd night it wouldn't light. The next day Renee had someone come to clean it and it did work the following night but on our final night, after purchasing fresh meat and fish, the grill would not start so we had to cook it stovetop inside. The stove in the kitchen is dated and does not light easily so the finished meal was not quite as good as it could've been. If grilling outdoors is important to you, I advise that you inquire if the grill has been cleaned and tested prior to your arrival.
The kitchen and bath are pretty clean but the kitchen stove/oven could definitely use an upgrade. There is a laundry room but it's down a spiral outdoor staircase and then below the driveway - so it's a bit of a haul. Other than that, I would say that for the price the place is great.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Casa Dos Chivos - we sincerely appreciate your feedback and take our guests' comments very seriously--as we've often stated, our goal is for every visitor at Casa Dos Chivos to have a truly wonderful experience. Renee did get someone to inspect the grill the day after you contacted her and he reported to her that he found it clean and in good working order. After you left Renee had no difficulty lighting the grill nor did the guests that followed you report any problems. We're sorry you had difficulty with the grill and we'll be sure it remains in good working order for future guests. Thanks again for your nice comments.

Gorgeous and comfortable getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Casa Dos Chivos. The house was perfect for our one-week getaway -- thoughtfully furnished, conveniently located, and incredibly comfortable, with beautiful views from the top deck. Many thanks to Patrick and Michael for making this a vacation we will never forget!

A++++++++++

  • 5 of 5
Both the owners and the local property manager where a VERY important source of info for our planning. Their local insight was invaluable to enjoy and make the most of our time in Vieques.

The house looks like an IKEA showroom. Super clean, everything matches. Besides it offers everything you need while in Vieques (except for the car):
- Fully equipped kitchen. Restaurants in Vieques are expensive (it's hard to find meals for less than US$20) and sincerely we didn't have any AMAZING meals. We ended up cooking most of the time, which is no hassle thanks to the well stocked "Morales" supermarkets and the farmers market (at the intersection of 200 and 201).
- Beach gear (towels, cooler, chairs, shades)

Make sure to check what the house already has (specially condiments) before you head to the supermarket. The fridge was already stocked with a bunch of stuff from past guests.

Try to go and see the bio bay with no moon. We went with full moon and it was amazing, still I can only imagine how great it looks with full darkness.

Our favorite beaches where "Playa Plata" (white podery sand, turquoise water, no one around!) and "Playa Grande" (fun surf, large beach lined with huge palm trees, also no one around).

Punta Arenas is great for watching the sunset, BUT!... there is a huge water reservoir close by with almost no breeze, so the amount of mosquitoes was industrial! Be sure to have plenty of repellent.
