Guestbook comments from the owner
Hello Peter,







Happy new year! Thank you for the opportunity to stay at Casa Sara. It is a lovely house and we definitely enjoyed Vieques. Also, I want to state that despite Annette/Dennis' family situation that occurred, they were both so pleasant to deal with and quite helpful with many inquiries we had.







I am checking to see if there is anything we need to finalize to complete our stay and have the deposit refunded.





Thank you!

I am a San Francisco sailor and retired engineer. I have a new career overseeing family properties. My wife, Wilma is a working artist who shows nationally and internationally. Wilma draws inspiration from being on Vieques and has hung a collection of her own works and works of friends.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

They are not making anymore pieces of paradise in the Caribbean. The natural beauty of Vieques was never spoiled by development. Vieques remains lightly populated, the people are open and friendly. It is quiet save for the sounds of nature. Our house is perfectly situated on its lot, only later did we become aware how it captures the trade winds making it pleasant indoors. We like hiking through open fields of wild coriander, exploring the remains of a sugar mill in a jungle setting reminiscent of South America. Enjoying any of the numerous gorgeous deserted beaches. On Sundays we like to look at shells on Green Beach while watching the yachts come over from the Main Island all set against the background of cloud capped El Junque. Isolated as we are, we can quickly get to San Juan and other Caribbean Islands. In 2008 Vieques was awarded best island in the Caribbean.

You are living in a small neighborhood. The morning starts with people getting to their jobs and children going to school. You will probably sleep late, eventually having a cup of coffee in a sunny spot on the bougainvilla draped veranda. You may walk up the street to get fresh bakery bread and sweet rolls. By now the neighborhood is empty and the world is yours, save for the mother hen and her chicks scratching in the yard, a family group of horses ambling down the street, a young lizard peeping out from under a conch shell. By noon all this changes and you will notice the delicious smells of home cooking. After enjoying their luncheon the neighbors will take a siesta, while you may decide to walk down to the Malecon, stopping at the local museum, perhaps shopping on your way to Sun Bay or any other gorgeous beach. In 2009 Sun Bay was voted the best beach in the Caribbean and has been the scene of a wedding or two. Coming home in the late afternoon you will discover salsa and other tropical sounds as Esperanza enjoys the local version of the cocktail hour. By eight thirty all will be silent. Your neighbors go to bed early. You may find yourself sitting on the veranda again, observing the Southern Cross in the night sky or walking under huge tropical stars to see how the fishing is going on the pier or having a drink in any one of a number of small charming bars and restaurants.

Convenient but be prepared for noise

  • 3 of 5
We stayed here for 5 nights - still had to pay the full week! It is convenient, and spacious upstairs with 3 bedrooms. However, the living room/kitchen are sparsely furnished, and the art may or may not be to your taste. It is dark inside during the day. I got the feeling not much has been done to it for years, the info the owner provided was from 2007. It was clean, so kudos to the cleaning woman. The big problem is the noise - with roosters crowing starting at 3 am, dogs barking at 2 am for hours, and other noises. I didn't mind the street noises - cars & music, and if you can tune everything out you might be ok. We did love staying in Esperanza, with a quick walk to the beach where you can walk for hours, and to the restaurants. There are plenty of places to stay in Vieques, and I would recommend being choosy.

Bright Airy and Comfy

  • 5 of 5
Casa Sara holds a special place in my heart because it was home base for me when I got married on Sun Bay Beach. (Note the owner's current pics don't fully represent Casa Sara's charm, though they do have a website with more updated photos.) It is a cozy and tastefully decorated by the artist-owner. The neighbors are friendly. The location is perfect as it’s a 2 minute walk from the Malecon, so if you don’t feel like getting in your car to drive, there are restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner, from simple (Belly Buttons) to elegant (El Quenepo), practically at your backdoor, all right on the beautiful bay in Esperanza. I looked at more luxurious locations (homes and hotels) on the Isabel side of the Island, but preferred the authentic, local feel and slower pace in Esperanza, the activity and restaurants along the Malecon, and the gentle Caribbean waters on the south side of the Island. You can’t beat the beauty of Sun Bay beach and the kayaking in the bioluminescent bays, which are minutes away from the Malecon.
Casa Sara is a modest but relaxed and artsy home, with plenty of room for family and friends to gather and make memories (including the kiddies). The house was bright, clean, and well stock with all the necessary amenities. The beds were comfy. The breezes were plentiful, and the house is surrounded by enough greenery to feel private. The location is conducive for great morning walks. You’ll see famous Paso Fino horses meandering by the house. We have wonderful memories of sitting out on the balcony in the evenings and seeing small groups of them playfully chasing each other down the street. Do be prepared for the neighborhood roosters crowing in the morning, though we got used to it after a couple of days and it didn’t really bother us. We were looking for an authentically get-away-from-it-all experience.
We’ve used VRBO to book much more posh accommodations London, Hawaii and Turkey. Casa Sara and Vieques are by far our favorites (and best value) and we can’t wait to go back!
