Perfect House for a Family with Small Children! Nature, Beach... and all one would need!
Submitted: March 5, 2012

I recently stayed at CDP with my partner and my 2 children, ages 5 & 7. We had a blast! The house is everything one could need, neat, clean, and well-stocked. We had wireless internet and a newly built laundry shed steps from the house. I must say, Casa de Playa is not Vegas. It is not the Bellagio. What it is, is a truly comfortable beach house with the ocean breeze lulling you to sleep at night (we didn't want the AC), wild horses roaming past and bathing in the lagoon, iguanas, egrets, palms, sea glass galore. It is spiritual in its simplicity!! The caretaker was so friendly and accommodating! I didn't have cell phone the entire time ( Verizon's fault, not the island), a blessing actually, and he arranged my taxi, made sure of my ferry tickets, answered all my questions and even found us a baby sitter so we could go indulge in one of the nice restaurants on the island! My only advice is to protect your skin!! The sun is sooo strong, my little ones ears burned! Sunscreen is mildly effective, but copious sand rubs it off. Sun shirts and sun hats are needed if you are easily burned.
The house was well kept, easy to clean ( a constant with sand and kids), lovely to watch one of the only spots on the island that has large waves!! My partner and my 7 year old did go snorkeling, which you need water shoes due to the rocks, and had a blast! The locals use this access point to go boogie boarding due to the waves. There is a grill, a stove, a TV with DVD, dish soap, plenty of towels.
I want to thank the owner from the bottom of my heart for her "child" discount and her wonderful communication throughout the process of renting. I had a rejuvenating, delightful, much needed break from the real world! And the children will NEVER forget their trip to Vieques and our little bungalow, Casa de Playa!!
