ISLAND GET-A-WAY DREAM

Vieques Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath

CASA de AMIGOS

The Caribbean ideal is realized here: sun, sand, palm trees and quiet.

Come enjoy, relax and explore the US Virgin Island of Vieques, off the coast of Puerto Rico. You’ll stay on the Caribbean side of the island in the peaceful Bario of La Hueca, (Bario of the Hollow) where you can enjoy the quiet, walk the beach, and enjoy both sunrise and sunset from your porch with beautiful views and sounds of the ocean.

Your home is fully equipped with two bedrooms and one full bathroom. Your kitchen is ready with all necessary appliances, dishes and cookware. Your living area has satellite TV and a stereo for your listening pleasure.

The island of Vieques has it all; great hiking through the protected Fish and Wildlife trails, miles of biking and white sandy secluded beaches.

After a day of lazing on your pick of beach, delight in the small fishing village of Esperanza where a rum punch and fun conversation gives the perfect touch to an island stay.

Enjoy the evening with dinner on the deck looking out at the sunset.

This noncommercial island was a find. My love of water and choice to simplify life brought me to this US island where I can use US money and banking and Postal services as well as cell phone (US) number. It is also easy to find flights in and out of San Juan. Good people, simple living and incredible beaches and peace.

Watching the sunrise and sunset on the ocean, listening to the ocean, the quiet, the wild horses that pass by, the fruit trees out my door, tropical gardens and flowers, the outdoor decks, walks to the beach, the birds and being able to sleep with the doors and windows open.....

SERENE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We would highly recommend the Casa de Amigos for your trip to Vieques Island and happen to think that Vieques is the best kept secret south of PR. The island is relatively quiet outside the calm bustle of Esperanza and Isabel and this island has some of the most beautiful beaches we've ever seen. Take a full day to beach hop and save an evening for a BioBay Tour (book ahead of time as they fill up fast). John and Marilyn are amazing hosts and are knowledgable about the "must sees" on the Island. Casa de Amigos is perfectly situated in the quiet country side but is only a mile and a half from the wonderful food and night life of Esperanza.

CASA DE AMIGO \ GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Casa de Amigo is the perfect vacation house - comfortable, colorful, and quiet. Marilyn and John were the perfect hosts, providing valuable information about the area and snorkeling gear. It is within walking distance to the Playa Grande beach, and only a mile and a half west of Esperanza. The yard is full of beautiful flowers, and wild horses pass by everyday. One can fall asleep at night enjoying cool breezes through the house and listening to the surf. We rented Marilyn's jeep to explore other beaches on the island, and to dine in great restaurants in Esperanza and Isabell. Red, Green, and Secret beaches were our favorites for snorkeling, swimming, or just chilling. Beware of the "no-see-ums" on Green Beach after 5:00! Of all the many places we have vacationed, this is the one spot we will definitely return to.

GREAT PLACE FOR OUR SMALL FAMILY

  • 4 of 5
This is the bottom floor (separate entrance) of a two floor house with the owners living upstairs. They are super friendly smart people, and helpful when needed. They arranged for a car seat rental ahead of time for our preschooler to be strapped safely into their agining island Jeep that we were happy to be able to rent on short notice when surely the other rentals on the island would be taken. It's a casual, easy going place with a very well supplied kitchen and some nice artistic touches. There are also a number of snorkeling flippers/masks/etc and beach chairs/towels. It was very spacious for the three of us. It's off the busy road so doesn't have a lot of noise. The owners had friends visiting our first night and were loud pretty late which worried us, but they were sincerely contrite about it when we mentioned it and it was fine thereafter. Driving down the little road to the house with the great view of the ocean is a spectacular way to arrive back. The breezes are lovely, and the gardening, too. You can not see the ocean from the first floor porch, but it's a really nice place to sit and eat or see the horses wandering by. Our daughter was serious mosquito bait at night in the non-aqua bedroom, maybe neeting would help there. It was my third trip to Vieques, my husband's second, and our daughter's first. It was the best place we've stayed. Everyone had a blast swimming and playing and bio-baying. We ate breakfast and packed lunches using the kitchen and ate out most nights. We had fantastic beef empanadas from the Sol Food truck, and a memorably great upscale dinner at El Quenepo. For our 4.5 year old, Media Luna beach, the sparkly water (bio bay), finding shells, the tiny aquarium in Esperanza, Marilyn letting her pick hibiscus flowers, and the airport cafe woman giving hre some mardi gras beads were highlights -- as was taking the little airplane to/from the island. She wished we bought more than one mango from the fruit truck and that she could drink passion fruit juice at breakfast all the time. ;)

JUST A PERFECT GETAWAY HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband wanted to celebrate his birthday at VIeques... and we had a GREAT TIME! Marilyn was more than helpful with the reservation and during our stay was always handy. She picked us up at the airport and rented us her Jeep. Vieques is just 4 miles x 18 miles and we drove every inch possible. Sceneries are incredible. The house was very spacious, with a nice sea breeze cross ventilation. Balcony are was perfect to have breakfast during the morning and relax during the day. House overall is well equipped. Playa Grande beach is just a 5 minute walk from the house and it is one of the most beautiful beaches we visited. The other one we liked very much is Caracas. Bio-bay kayak tour was wonderful, Esperanza town is filled with restaurants, local stores and bars with WiFi and great ambiance. We will come back to this house for sure.

THE PERFECT VACATION - WE CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!

The perfect vacation - we can't wait to go back!
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking for the perfect get-away for our 20th wedding anniversary. We found it on Vieques. The house was everything we wanted and more. Each day the horses would accompany us on our short walk down the road to the gorgeous and secluded beach. We spent hours relaxing in the beach chairs, beach combing, exploring and watching the sunset. I don’t think we saw more than 5 other people on the beach all week. I can’t say enough about the owners. They were extremely helpful while planning our trip and provided us with everything we needed to explore the island when we arrived. We had a great time sharing pictures and tales of our adventures with them. The home is just a few minutes’ drive from the small town of Esperanza and the Malecon where you can go to get a drink, eat dinner or do a little light shopping while overlooking the Caribbean. There is a small grocery store in Esperanza where you can pick up any necessities for the week. The house is bright, clean and the ocean breeze is incredibly relaxing. We loved the house and island so much that we are returning this summer with our kids as a graduation present for our daughter. The island is a magical place that truly does take you back in time and makes you appreciate how special a simpler life can be. Be sure to rent the vehicle so you can see all the surrounding beaches and the beauty that Vieques has to offer.

LA HUECA-- GREAT LOCATION AND HELPFUL OWNERS

  • 4 of 5
I recently stayed at La Hueca with my boyfriend and another couple. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and nicely furnished and decorated with bright colors that really made us feel at home. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and provided everything we needed to explore the island and enjoy the beach (they provided us with maps, a rental car, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, a cooler, & towels). The house was located only a few minutes from Playa Grande and Esperanza, which was the perfect location for us since we could quickly go into the town for drinks or a bite to eat and still enjoy the peaceful sounds of the island at night. For those looking to save a few dollars, we were able to eat at the house quite a bit since there are a number of nearby grocery stores and the kitchen is well-equipped (they also have a small gas grill that we used).

I would definitely recommend this rental home to others and we would absolutely stay there again on our next visit to the island.

Only thing to be mindful of: there is a washer, but no dryer and line-drying things can be tricky since it can rain randomly throughout the day.
