LAS TERRAZAS-FABULOUS OCEAN VIEWS-GORGEOUS & PRIVATE POOL, GARDENS & FOUNTAINS

Vieques Island House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms + children's sleeping area, 3 baths (sleeps up to 14)

Recently renovated, Las Terrazas is a wonderful hideaway compound nestled high on the Los Chivos ridge in Vieques. Featuring incredible views, Las Terrazas is centally located, offering easy access to Esperanza, Isabel II and the Navy beaches, yet it enjoys the most private setting Vieques has to offer. The lush tropical gardens and fruit trees that fill this 1.5 acre estate are further graced by beautiful Spanish fountains and a large pool with ocean views. Las Terrazas offers two independent units, each with two bedrooms and one bath, plus a private casita, making it one of the most versatile homes to rent on Vieques. Perfect for a large family, a group of friends, two families traveling together, or a couple looking for a private and romantic getaway, both the upstairs and downstairs units have their own fully equipped kitchens, bathrooms and dining terraces. The casita offers flexibility for additional friends or family members.

The Terraces: The terraces which give Las Terrazas its name are a favorite gathering spot for enjoying the amazing view. Dining al fresco will be another highlight of your stay at Las Terrazas. Have your morning coffee watching the sun rise from one terrace, enjoy lunch on another, sip afternoon cocktails on yet a third as you watch the sun set, and then serve dinner under the gazebo by the pool.

The Gardens: Unlike many of the newer homes on the island, Las Terrazas enjoys the privacy offered by mature gardens and trees that have been lovingly cultivated and expanded through years of care. Sitting by the pool, guests are secluded in a private world, surrounded by tropical flowers and vegetation. As you enjoy the beautiful ocean view and watch the hummingbirds flit from flower to flower, it is hard to remember that you are actually only a short drive from the grocery store, town and beaches. However, when picking a lime from the lime tree in the courtyard for your cocktail or an avocado from a tree by the pool for a snack, it may be hard to force yourself to leave the private, tropical haven that Las Terrazas offers those wanting 'to get away from it all.'

Your house is perfect…it was even better than the pictures. We all felt like Kennedy's in a compound. Private, secluded, great breeze, relaxing and refreshing…

Relaxing, Peaceful and Private!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Las Terrazas was wonderful. The house was nicely decorated, very spacious, extremely clean, and well maintained. The air conditioning worked great in the bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped and we especially enjoyed the ice machine! Very nice beach chairs, coolers and beach towels were provided.

Privacy is always important to us…and both the home and the pool area were very private. The gated driveway, gardens and entry courtyard were great! The house was conveniently located, with a just quick drive to the beaches, restaurants, and grocery store. We absolutely loved the quiet, less crowded beaches. One afternoon, we had an entire beach to ourselves for at least two hours.

Lyle, the owner, was very kind, accommodating and quick to reply to all of my emails. Karen, the property manager, was very helpful and met us at Maritza's Car Rental. She responded to all my text messages quickly and was always pleasant and eager to assist us.

Our trip to Vieques was peaceful, relaxing and everything went smoothly, just as planned…except purchasing tickets for the ferry. If you are seeking relaxation, definitely avoid the ferry lines and chaos at the ferry terminal.

We would highly recommend Las Terrazas if you are planning a trip to Vieques.

Beautiful house, gorgeous island...

  • 5 of 5
We (2 families with kids aged 5 - 9) shared Las Terrazas over Spring Break. The house was beautiful, extremely clean, nicely situated in the center of the Island, and extremely well-managed. The pool at Las Terrazas rivals and bests most of the hotel or hacienda pools we saw while we were there. The view from the upstairs apartment was gorgeous. And sitting poolside or on the upper deck drinking cocktails was one of our favorite activities.

The house is really set up as 2 separate apartments, joined by an outside staircase in front and in back. It took about a day to get used to this, but then the kids were going back and forth easily and comfortably. And we ended up not using the upstairs kitchen at all.

The sound of roosters is loud - but that is part of the local charm of the island.

The beaches are stunning, and each one has its own unique character -- so each one merits its own exploration. And the bio-bay is not to be missed.

Local food trucks offer some of the best food we ate on the Island.

If you want a place to relax, this is a great choice. If you need tons of activities and events, Vieques is probably not for you.

It would be hard to imagine finding a better house than Las Terrazas.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
Las Terrazas is a wonderful home located up on a hill for great views, yet close to both the town and the beaches. It had everything we wanted and needed. We had four adults and two teenagers in our group, and there was plenty of space for everyone, both inside and out. The property is very clean, nicely decorated, and up-to-date. The photos and descriptions are very accurate. (But it's better in person!)

The outdoor space is very beautiful. There are many trees and plants surrounding the property, and many sitting areas to choose from where you can enjoy the views. The pool is great! It has nice lounge chairs to relax in while sipping a pina colada, and it's deep enough for teenagers to have fun in, too. We enjoyed it every day. We even had the chance to watch a large iguana come and get a drink!

Some activities we enjoyed on the island were swimming, snorkeling, touring the bio-bay, eating at local restaurants and bakeries, watching the wild horses, and driving around the island to explore.

We would definitely come back to this property and this island. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and the manager made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

Great estate!

  • 5 of 5
Two families stayed here for a week. It was a wonderful house and we loved every minute we stayed here. We rented both floors and the casita. The only somewhat strange design flaw (at least for us) was that the stairs to the casita are outside the locked gate for the house itself so sometimes the couple that stayed there got locked out of the main house. Also, one thing I didn't notice (which was in no way a problem) was that there are no interior stairs between the 2 floors.

The pool was awesome - so wonderful to float around in. We hit the beaches in the morning and then the pool in the afternoon. The outdoor seating area was perfect for afternoon reading out of the sun.

The square outdoor table was a perfect fit for the 10 of us. We shared many great meals here.

The kitchen is well stocked - both by supplies that other renters had left and stocked by the owners themselves. Plenty of plates, silverware and glasses, pots and pans and serving dishes. Since we cooked in most nights, this was especially important to us. We didn't lack for any accessories! The ice machine was a big plus.

The property was very clean. The owners were great to deal with and Karen, the manager, was always available, friendly and helpful.

We would recommend Las Terrazas as a place to stay and we all hope we can return in the future.

Vieques is a great place for a relaxing vacation - beautiful beaches, good restaurants. We love it!

Car: recommended

Relaxing by the large pool listening to the fountains gurgle as you try to count the numerous hummingbirds flitting in and out of the surrounding flowers will be a highlight of your stay at Las Terrazas. Yet do force yourself to leave, as this home is a short drive from some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Most beaches are all-but-deserted, and no beach in Vieques is ever crowded. Also not to be missed is a visit to the other-worldly Bio-Bay and excursions into Isabel Segundo and Esperanza for wonderful restaurants. Everything is within a very short drive from the house, unless the island's ubiquitous wild horses slow your progress along the way!

Other Activities: world famous bio-bay, great restaurants
