Casa Alyssa in Barrio Villa Borinquen, Vieques PR is a great value for a Vieques house rental.
Located a short drive from Isabel Segunda, the Eastern Reserve and Esperanza, this 3 bedroom, 3 bath house is both convenient and comfortable.
The Master bedroom, with a queen-size bed, is private and has its own bath with a double sink and glass-block shower.
The second bedroom, with a full-size/french bed, has its facilities arranged in two separate areas, with its pedestal sink in a large nook in the room (B&B style) and a private toilet and shower.
The third bedroom, which is accessed by passing through the second bedroom, has two single/twin beds and a private bath, with toilet, shower and sink.
All three bedrooms have air-conditioning, although we didn't use it during our stay.
The configuration, with the second and third bedrooms connected, and the easy access to the sink in the second bedroom, makes this especially nice for families with children.
The kitchen is well-appointed with a double-basin sink, a dishwasher, a full-size refrigerator and all the usual small appliances (toaster, coffee-maker, et al.) and is open to the dining and living areas.
The dining and living area is well ventilated, has glass windows that take in the northern views to Culebra even when closed, and is furnished with a gathering table for six and a couch and several chairs.
The large veranda also has a dining table and seating for six as well as several extra chairs, and the washer and dryer are located there, along with a large grill. There are also a couple of lounge chairs and a large umbrella. The outdoor shower located off the veranda was convenient for rinsing off sandy feet after returning from a beach.
The grounds are lovely, with banana plants, bougainvillea, and ginger in a very large front yard. There is off-street parking for at least 2 vehicles behind the house.
The owners and the property manager are really pleasant, nice people and were helpful both while we were planning our stay and throughout.
Rooster noise was no different than any other place on the island, and even though Casa Alyssa is near an intersection, the traffic noise was less than what is heard in some of the busier barrios on Vieques. It is a quiet and relaxing area.
Our family; 2 adults, a young teenager and an elementary-age child spent three weeks here in February 2012.
We found Casa Alyssa to meet all our needs and expectations and to be very comfortable during our stay; we certain
