Guestbook comments from the owner

I called my sister the minute we settled in to inform her “this is our best Caribbean house rental ever!”

What a joy to leave the snow and cold in Chicago and enjoy your gorgeous garden, home and décor. You were right, it's as good if not better than a resort. We can't report on too many of the beaches because we couldn't drag ourselves out the door.

Thanks for the restaurant suggestions We loved the pino colados as Mar Azul, the pulled rib quesadilla at Bili, everything about Quenepo and the Caribbean lobster at Trade Winds was the best we have ever had. Next time we come will have to try a few more beaches, but we really enjoyed the beautiful home in the bunker hills. Thank you.

Beautiful house on a magical island

  • 5 of 5
We had our best family vacation ever at Casa La Puerta! The house is wonderful, with gorgeous views and a sparkling pool (the pool guy came and cleaned at least twice while we were there, which was fantastic). The kitchen is very well-equipped; and the owners have thought of everything and provided it for guests. Toys & towels for the pool and beach, coolers, reusable water bottles, card and games, DVDs, extensive restaurant recommendations & guidebooks...you name it! The house was spacious and immaculately clean with tasteful furniture, and the owners graciously loaned us everything we needed for our two year old - carseat, high chair, pack and play. This made travelling so much easier.

Our older kids (4 and 6) were thrilled with the pool and of course the island's incredible beaches. The grownups loved the grill, and sitting outside on the terrace after the kids were in bed. Our favorite beaches (all great for young children) were Media Luna, Secret Beach (aka Plata Prieta), Sun Bay and Blue Beach. Our favorite restaurants were Next Course, Tradewinds, Duffy's and Bili. (We also had a great lunch at the W Hotel but that resort isn't really in keeping with Vieques' laid back island life.)

We rented a Jeep from Juergen at Abreeze guest house, which was very straightforward; he can pick up from the airport and drop you back there, and Abreeze is very close to Casa La Puerta.

Overall, I would absolutely recommend this fantastic family-friendly house to anyone wanting to visit Vieques.

Beautiful Vieques Home!

  • 5 of 5
This home was perfect for our second trip to Vieques! With three lovely bedrooms (essentially two masters plus a third bedroom) and a large but still intimate gathering area. Note that the two largest bedrooms are separated by the outdoor space: perfect for two couples vacationing together, maybe not so much for families with young children. The outdoor eating area is a huge plus with a beautiful view of the ocean and the pool. Every amenity was available- grill, beach chairs, toys, towels, board games, etc. etc.
With a full security system plus bars on most of the windows we felt very safe in this house. It was an easy drive to both Esperanza, Isabel II and the beaches.
A bigh asset to this rental is the terrific property manager, Karen, who was knowledgeable, helpful and welcoming!

Lovely

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our family vacation at Casa La Puerta. The outdoor living area was our gathering spot -- great to enjoy the stunning ocean view, catch the breeze, drink our morning coffee, play cards, have evening cocktails and star gaze at night. Beautiful. From a practical standpoint, the location of the house on the island is perfect -- very central and close to great beaches, Esperanza and Isabel II. The kitchen is very well stocked as is the rest of the house. Beach towels, beach chairs, pool floats, coolers -- we really appreciated having all of these at our disposal. Although we have never had any problems with petty theft on Vieques (this was our second trip) we appreciated having the safe on premise for valuables. And we must give a shout out to Karen, the property manager, who took care of a couple of minor maintenance issues so quickly that we were never inconvenienced. Very comfortable home. It was hard to leave -- can't wait to go back!

Really Nice House and View!

  • 5 of 5
Casa La Puerta is a really great house on this most perfect island. Well equipped, I mean everything we could have possibly needed was there. From the awesome Tommy Bahama beach chairs to the perfectly equipped kitchen, this place was a charm! We can not say enough about Karen, our house manager, she brought the whole trip together for us. She waited at the airport for our very late flight and helped us haul our group and luggage up to the house. Thanks to her we were by the pool, in the sun in no time at all. She was helpful throughout the week and it was just really nice chatting with her about the island and all it's neat stories. Definately would stay here again!

Caribbean Dreamer

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time staying at Casa La Puerta and we hope it won't be our last. We found it very comfortable, clean and nicely furnished. We did quite a bit of cooking and grilling, everything worked! We loved how it was decorated and found everything very comfortable. Love the porch and the view is to die for. Felt very calm and at home which is what we look for in a vacation rental. The property manager was great and took very good care of us.

Beautiful !

  • 5 of 5
The photos are close to accurate but do not fully capture the beauty that surrounds Casa La Puerta. The Ocean views are magnificent. The lay out of the house provides plenty of privacy for three couples.The portico feels like it's part of the interior but it's not and the views from it are....[please see above comment about the views]. The neighborhood [Barrio] feels quite safe and is nice to walk around. I think the location is ideal if you want to spend a lot of time at the beaches on the carribean side of the Island [best beaches=Red or caracus,Blue or La Chiva and Silver or La Plata]. It's about 5 min from the house to the Beach.
5 min by car that is and it just so happens there is a vacation property right across the street called "Abreeze", they have a nice fleet of vehicles that they rent out. The vehicles are in well maintained and they are easy to do business with. The pool and other amenities were just as described. The kitchen is well stocked with all nec appl's. It was just my wife and I, we wish we could have shared the house and island with some of our friends, maybe next time.
The property manager Karen is friendly and attentive.
Blue beach is great for first time snorkelers [park your car at spot#10 ,walk into the turquoise water and when the white sand beneath your feet reaches the sea grass, lift up your feet and let the gentle current that runs parallel with the shore take you for a ride. If you want a good burger and fries or quesadilla try duffys on the boardwalk in Esperanza. they also have a nice selection of beer. and a sea side view.

Notes:
Casa La Puerta is a quiet, comfortable villa equipped with all the comforts of home. The high speed internet service connects you to the outside world, but if want to relax and be on vacation, sit on the covered terrace and let your mind drift away as you look out at the serene view of the sea. Use the two outdoor showers to rinse off sand and salt after a day at the beach. As the sun sets, listen to the coqui frogs as they sing a song while you lounge on the terrace and watch darkness approach.
