Casa de Colores embodies the best of Caribbean living with magnificent indoor and outdoor spaces that easily flow into each other. We lovingly chose every detail, including art work from travels and the owner-artist, hand-picked furniture, and brilliant colors everywhere. The house has two separate structures (and a third which is a stand-alone studio w. queen bed and full bath) tied together by Mexican tiles and interlocking decks with spectacular wide views of the Caribbean. The main house has kitchen (concrete counters), indoor and outdoor dining, large living room, a multi-use/media room with queen sleep sofa, and a master bedroom with views and deck. The main house also has two full bathrooms, and outdoor shower. The second structure has two bedrooms, each with full bath, one a king or 2 twins, and the other a queen, and below is a fully equipped studio apartment with private entrance. All this with a large swimming pool surrounded by magical tropical gardens.
Because of the close proximity of the ungated pool to the house and the main living areas, Casa de Colores is not appropriate for children under 10 years old.
Each bedroom is equipped with a state of the art A/C. The main structure of the main
house is NOT air conditioned because we have found that it is not needed because of the island breeze,
and ceiling fans.
Our trip was fantastic....we had such an incredible time on Vieques..and your house....amazing! It was the perfect location to melt into at the end of each of our wonderfully adventurous days. I think we actually went to every beach (on the maps that you are able to access on unrestricted roads) except Black Sand Beach.
Your house was very comfortable and the landscaping was eye candy! Sitting on the deck at night looking at the shooting stars was heavenly.(no pun intended)
Thanks for such a wonderful week!
We just returned from a week at Casa de Colores, and a wonderful week it was. Communication with the owners was a breeze from beginning to end. The house was just as described, and the layout conducive to accommodating our extended family. Between the large upstairs deck, with plenty of comfortable seating and amazing views, the poolside table for dinners (and a few more lounge chairs), and the sweet little alcove (another chaise!) by the burbling fountain, there were many places to relax separately--or together. At the end of each day we all had cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the upper deck, before cooking a delicious meal or going out to one of Esperanza's many delightful restaurants. The lush and well-maintained vegetation provides a home for hummingbirds, bananaquits, and kingbirds, to name just a few. The property managers were prompt and very helpful (though we didn't need any help with the property itself--it was in great condition). I'd recommend this place highly!
We had a fantastic time at Casa Colores! The house is absolutely beautiful, we loved the pool and how it is so integrated into the house, and the views are fantastic. Thanks again for making it so very convenient to rent, and for sharing your home. The house managers took great care of us, and we very much enjoyed both the house and the island.
We were surprised at how big the house is and how much privacy each room has. We only had 4 adults and one child so we did not need the bottom floor apartment with the second kitchen. It is beautiful, comfortable and spotless. Bright colors on the outside but the inside is very tastefully decorated by someone with a great eye for details in nuetral relaxing colors. The towels, linens, chairs, all were high quality.
The house managers were very helpful. They stopped by a couple of times and made sure the pool stayed clean. The pool was very nice for relaxing after a hot day at the beach.
We were centrally located to everything on the island. We went to Esperanza and the Southern beaches most often but also trekked into Isabel and had dinner at the W. We did not cook but there were very nice appliances. We ate lunch at Bananas daily after the beach and tried different places at night.
The weather and the views were perfect along with the sounds of the coquis frogs each night.
You definitely need a jeep to stay here and should listen to the house managers instructions on how to park on the very steep driveway because it is tricky and you can scrape the bottom of the vehicle if you come from the wrong angle.
I wish we had brought a long a a few more friends to fill up the other rooms!
This is an astonishing house. There is a fully appointed main house with a pool, deck and elegant interior, and three smaller houses, each wonderfully comfortable and self-sufficient. The amazing thing is that, though each of the houses is within a half-minute's walk of the other three, there is absolutely no sense of crowding. Hence, different branches of our family were able to have adequate privacy and space; yet we were able to commingle in a relaxed way without infringing on anyone's privacy. As other reviewers have observed, the beauty of the surroundings is breathtaking. The caretakers, Kelly and Cheo, could not have been more gracious, helpful and welcoming. Highest and most enthusiastic rating.
Casa de Colores is the ideal home to gather family in a gorgeous setting. The house is beautiful and the grounds are a tropical paradise. The best part about it, other than the fabulous pool, is that there are lovely spaces that are comfortable for the whole family to gather and at the same time there are spaces that allow you to spread out and relax in private. the location is ideal - easy to get to the beaches that make Vieques such a special island, and easy to get to both Esperanza and Isabel II. We have stayed here twice and plan on many more visits.
I just got back from a truly amazing week on Vieques. The villa was perfect in every way. I had my four children, and two of their friends. Everyone had their privacy and yet there was plenty of room to spread out together in the upstairs living room and large outdoor deck. The house is perfectly appointed in every way. We spent days at the many beaches snorkeling and sunbathing, and then we would come back for barbecues and a dip in the amazing pool. I would highly recommend this property if you want to have a dream vacation.
Thank you Ellen and Evan!
Our house is uniquely situated on the midpoint of the island with magnificent wide views of the Caribbean. It's a perfect blend of both privacy and convenience, only 10 minutes from the best beaches, and equidistant from both main towns and all the great dining, fine and casual, that Vieques has to offer. You're close to the bio-bay, wild horses, snorkeling, sea kayaking, hiking, and mountain biking. Los Chivos is a great area on a beautiful and fascinating island.
