MAGNOLIA HOUSE

Vieques Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The location of this private home in the small fishing village of Esperanza provides access to beaches, restaurants, local groceries, produce markets, kayak/snorkel rental shops, clothing and gift stores. The neighborhood is a mixture of local residents and renters. The homes are painted in a rainbow of colors; flowering bushes and trees abound. Magnolia House is cooled inside by ceiling fans and air conditioning. The house has been extensively rebuilt, replacing and enlarging the original structure to incorporate high ceilings, lots of windows, new appliances in the kitchen and an all new bathroom. The front patio is an excellent spot for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails.

There are two, comfortably-sized bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with a pair of twin beds. The bathroom has a large, walk-in, tiled shower.

Whether you choose to swim, snorkel, eat out, cook in, tour the bioluminescent bay or read a book, you'll have a comfortable home base. In addition, you'll have the knowledgeable assistance of my caretakers who will meet you at the ferry or airport, if you wish.

As a retired school teacher with a love of reading, traveling and swimming, Vieques appeals to my sense of adventure. I've been a tourist in many places in the world, but I love actually having real estate to make me feel rooted and to give me a sense of belonging. It creates a balance between the 'foreign' and the familiar.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

I chose Vieques because it's an island in the Caribbean!!!!

Magnolia House is private, yet part of a neighborhood that is vibrant. It's where real people live, people who get up in the morning, send their children to school and go to work. The beaches are exquisite and Esperanza is a village hosting world travelers while maintaining its own character.

Another wonderful stay

This was our second stay at Magnolia House and it was once again fantastic! I am hesitant to let the secret out of the bag :) Magnolia House is walking distance to the Malecon where you can stroll, eat, drink and people watch! The house is incredibly comfortable with everything you need. We especially enjoyed sitting outside to read in the afternoon.
This year we discovered the joys of snorkeling and there were splendid sights rights off the pier in Esperenza. You can spend your time here without a car easily or rent a car or scooter for easy outings to the beautiful beaches on the island.
A special thanks, once again, to Joe and Mimi for making the trip extra special with their information and tips. Coqui Grill in Isabel II is fantastic and Tin Box has delicious oysters, fresh salads, and a great happy hour.

Owner's Response: Vacation time is so precious and I am grateful that you chose to spend it at Magnolia House... twice. Thank you
I am pleased that you recognized Mimi and Joe's outstanding support and will definitely pass it on to them.
Don't worry about letting out any "secret." What happens in Vieques, stays in Vieques!

The Magnolia House far exceeded all of our expectations. The living room was comfortable and included fans to keep us cool, books to read about the beautiful island, and even music to listen to while sipping the local beer, Medalla! The kitchen was completely stocked with every item that we needed! The bedrooms were wonderful and included air conditioners in each. The bathroom also had everything that we needed including the longest shower stall that I have ever seen! The house was absolutely clean and we easily walked to the town of Esperanza in the evenings for dinner and drinks. Thank you to Joe for all his information on the beaches, restaurants, etc. and for going above and beyond helping us: to get groceries on our first evening AND then waiting to unpack and driving us to a lovely restaurant to unwind on our first night on Vieques.
Everything was PERFECT!!

Our stay at Magnolia House was wonderful! We have been going to Vieques for six years. This is the first time we rented a house and we could not have been happier. Magnolia House is an authentic Esperanza home. It is situated in a vibrant neighborhood with a combination of local residents and vacationers. We were lulled to sleep by the coquis at night and awakened by roosters in the morning. The house had everything we needed. The kitchen was well-equipped. There was a washer and dryer and a large, clean bathroom in addition to two nice sized bedrooms. The front porch faces north, and is perfectly shaded for relaxing in the afternoon. The house managers, Joe and Mimi, were always available and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant and enjoyable. We look forward to returning to Magnolia House next year.

Owner's Response: While I do enjoy staying in a hotel when I travel, most often I prefer staying in a house or apt. because it gives me the opportunity to feel part of a neighborhood, to shop and dine locally, to get a richer sense of the culture. When my guests at Magnolia House experience the same enrichment, I have a sense of satisfaction. Thank you.

Magnolia House was Wonderful

We had a great experience in Vieques, at Magnolia House. We traveled with our two small children (3 and 9) and stayed for 4 nights. The house is very cute, was very clean, had a good kitchen...I'd definitely go back! And it was a pretty easy walking distance to town and the grocery. Though with children, the walking got a bit much and we wished we'd rented a car for the whole stay (this is also very important if you want to see the more "hidden" beaches. Publicos and Taxis may work for people with no kids however...though in our experience, they often ran late when we did use them..).
The house has sound machines, and thank goodness I brought ear plugs too. I am a very light sleeper, and between the frogs, the dogs, and the roosters, I needed a lot of "white Noise"!
We did a snorkel trip and the Bio Bay with Abe...pretty good outfit I'd say..though don't do the bio bay when there is a bright moon!
My daughter and I also did horseback riding with Esperanza Riding Company...that was great too.
I will say, because I am a parent, that there was gun fire of an automatic weapon on the Malecon a few restaurants down from where we were eating our last night...it was scary. However, I've been assured this is pretty rare, and that in general, Esperanza is safe.
Vieques is not to be missed...the beaches were almost vacant...some beaches we were the only ones there! You can't beat that.

Owner's Response: Certainly there is so much for a family with young children to do on Vieques and I am pleased that Magnolia House is a comfortable home base from which to explore the island. Having a fully equipped kitchen cuts down on the expense of eating out, as well. The Bio-Bay and horseback riding, snorkeling and enjoying the beaches are excellent ways to experience some of the island's beauty. I am sorry, though, that you were exposed to any sounds of violence.

My husband and I just rented Magnolia House for a few days over the holidays and were so pleased with everything. The house is adorable and has many amenities that are perfect for beach going (ex. plenty of towels, washer/dryer, cooler, etc). The location is great in that is is a short walk to restaurants and shops. Also, Joe, the house manager who welcomed us, helped us get acclimated with various snorkel spots and beaches. Thanks so much!!

Owner's Response: Magnolia House's location, amenities and house manager are key, as you say. to its appeal. Vieques has beautiful natural resources and a comfortable home base like Magnolia House makes the vacation more relaxing. I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
