Get away from it all at our hillside retreat on the Caribbean side of Vieques. Just a mile from Esperanza on the south side of the island. With eco-friendly simplicity and outdoorsy living island style, our clean & bright casita (Spanish for 'small house') has its own view of the sea and nearby mountain. The pool area is the perfect spot to relax adjacent to a shaded deck when you're ready for a siesta in the hammock.

Casa Limon consists of two bedrooms each with queen size bed, two full bathrooms, full kitchen, living and dining space, and covered terrace with table and chairs.

Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality! You and Kirk are very special people -- so generous and friendly. We had a really great time, got a lot of rest, and were ready to get back into things again when we came home. You have a very beautiful place
This casita is just perfect. We found the entire process of booking as well as our stay very hospitable. The property manager Tyler is wonderful and helps with anything you need. The property itself is great and the views are amazing. We stayed in Casita Azul and it was perfect for us. We hiked down to black beach from the property and found the location to be so convenient to everything we wanted and needed. Esperanza was our go-to place for food and drinks out if we wanted to not stay at the casita. Our stay overall was amazing and we hope to return sooner rather than later!
Casita Verde was perfect for our 1st short little visit to Vieques. Tyler picked us up at the airport, setup our horseback ride with Esperanza Riding Company and our BioBay Tour with Taino Aqua Adventures (Alexi), gave us tips for exploring the island, and recommended eateries. Beautiful gardens at Oreanda with hummingbirds, butterflies, tree frogs, chickens, the occasional wandering horse, and mongoose. The pool was refreshing and the view great! We ate our little breakfast on the casita porch each morning before venturing out. The weather was pleasant, the island very interesting, and the rates were reasonable. We recommend staying here. We recommend you do not fly Air Sunshine (Air Sometimes) to get to Vieques.
This was my first stay at Oreanda in Casa Azul but not my first time in Vieques. Location is close to Esperanza which is, to my opinion, the best little get together town on the island. Everything seen on pictures reflects reality with its wonderful flower garden and ocean view from the pool. The 2 casitas are very cozy. It was easy to make arrangment from Stephanie at booking. Upon arrival, Tyler will easely makes you feel home. When needed, he will provide you all tourists details to make your stay memorable. Thank you.
We will be back soon !
We stayed here as part of our honeymoon in Rincon and Fajardo. After staying at luxurious El Conquistador, we wanted some peace and quietness before coming back to NYC.
Mary and Kirk were very welcoming and really helpful, they arranged for us to rent a car with Chepito and suggested restaurants and places around.
We stayed at Azul, the house is cozy and has everything you may need, they even have beach towels, beach chairs and coolers you can bring with you to the beach. Mary baked a bread and had coffee and milk for us our first day here. I think it was a great touch and it says a lot about them taking care of their guests.
The house is close to El Malecon, where all the action is taking place! Many restaurants, bars, and the best beaches.
Overall, we had a great stay in Vieques! If we plan to go back, we'll definitely considered staying here again :-)
Thanks Mary and Kirk

If you're looking for a beautiful Vieques casita stay you've found the right place! This is a comfortable hillside home with stunning views. It's within minutes of beautiful beaches and quality restaurants and bars. The owners treat you like family and go above and beyond to share their love of the island with you. They truly made our vacation effortless and suggested many local island memories that completed our stay.
Thank you, Mary and Kirk!! Looking forward to a return visit!
Mary & Kirk are the consummate hosts - friendly, welcoming, unobtrusive. Their place is spectacular, they've thought of everything, and anything they haven't thought of, they'll pretty much take care of.
We stayed on their property for a week and loved every second of it.
There are two casitas on the property, plus their home. We stayed in "Verde" and the other is "Azul." The differences are: Azul is bigger, has more space inside and out, but the shower is outside - which I think is cool, but you might not love (the pics here are of Azul). Verde is the perfect size for two and looks out over the pool and onward to the ocean. We loved Verde and would choose it again.
Each casita has a kitchenette with a sink, fridge (stocked with a few little treats and breakfast for your first morning), and a propane stove; a cooler to take to the beach; a TV with a movie collection (we didn't find that necessary); and a little lending library. There's also a big grill down by the pool, if you want to get your MEAT on. Under the grill is a stockpile of sunscreen and bugspray in case you need either. I think we went through about a bottle of the former, but needed none of the latter.
It was great to get up and eat breakfast on the porch or by the pool, eventually head out to do a little exploring, have lunch at a local spot, beach it until dinner time and then come home and cook dinner. We also took a late night dip in the pool, swimming under the stars!
Mary took care of so much for us - she got us a shuttle from the airport to the ferry. She helped us find a rental car and got us picked up at the ferry. She also took care of everything for my birthday planning - dinner reservations, a bio bay tour, and she sang to me as soon as she saw me and brought me chocolates. It was sweet. :) When I was an idiot and left my debit card in a restaurant in Isabel, she happened to know the owner and got it back to me even though the restaurant was closed.
Kirk, on the other hand, made sure our cooler always had ice; helped us with the grill; shared so much of his knowledge about local plants and the history of both their property and of the island; and invited us to join him on a morning hike to the black sand beach - which was a totally spectacular.
The other part of the hosting team - their dogs Bella, Tiger, and Harry made sure we were entertained and made us miss our pup just a little bit less.
Vieques is a sleepy island located between Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, USVI. We have many pristine beaches, amazing sunsets and the largest greenspace in the Caribbean. The snorkeling is good; the Bioluminescent Bay is incredible, and there's no hustle-bustle here. Paradise.
Other Activities: Yoga, Bioluminescent Bay tours, archeaological sites
