GREAT VIEWS, GREAT VILLA.

  • 5 of 5
Our 4th villa rental on Vieques. We have rented villas on numerous other Caribbean islands and have a pretty good sense of what value means in this context. Casa Columbia is certainly one of the best. The written description is accurate. The villa is clean, well mainatined, and all utilities work well. The views are magnificent. The location of the villa is central to all the good stuff on the island. The pool area is exceptional.

The owners are very responsive and helpful, and make the rental, payment, and airport pick-up process quick and smooth.

This trip our favorite meals were at Noche and Tradewinds. The pizza at Inn on the Blue Horizon was also a great treat, and surprisingly reasonably priced ( served only on Friday and Saturday).

As noted in other reviews, the only things to be aware of are the layout of the villa would make it difficult for anyone with mobility issues, and the access road requires 4 wheel drive and a sense of adventure!

Given the privacy, the views, and the amenities Casa Columbia has to offer, iti s probably one of the best deals on Vieques.

TWO WEEKS IS NOT ENOUGH!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to Vieques but it certainly will not be our last! Casa Columbia is an absolutely beautiful villa and equipped with all the extras to make the stay perfect! The heated pool is fantastic! We loved exploring the beaches & restaurants. It is an easy island to navigate, even with the assortment of various sized potholes! The two weeks were gone in an instant! We’ll be back soon, in fact, we've already booked three weeks in 2015!

BREATHTAKING VIEWS IN SPECTACULAR VILLA.

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a wonderful week in Casa Columbia. We no sooner thought of something we wish we had there and there it would be. Beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable. The property manager, Mark, was so helpful and available for info or help. The pool was silky and perfect. The rooftop was magical at night with a canopy of stars that we never see at home. I can't wait to go back and hopefully spend more than a week next time.

Owner's Response: It is one of the best views with or without magnification. We keep binoculars in the owners' closet. If you asked our property manager, he could have gotten them for you.

UNDOUBTABLY THE BEST VILLA ON VIEQUES

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks in this lovely villa on our first visit to Vieques. What makes this villa so special? It is high on a hill right in the middle of the island and so has views of both the Caribbean and the Atlantic. It is in a gated community with only three other villas. Within walking distance down the hill is the Next Course restaurant--one of Vieques' best. So the location is perfect. Ten minutes to Esperanza, ten minutes to Isabel II.
Add to that a heated pool. We have traveled all over the Caribbean over the past ten years and we always stay in a villa and we always travel there in January or February. We have never found a pool at that time of the year that is really warm enough to enjoy. This one is perfect. We spent hours in it every day. The living room, dining room and kitchen are up one level as well as a beautiful entry area and a full bath with a huge shower and glass block wall. The living room has a large flat screen TV (satellite so hundreds of stations), beautiful arched windows and plenty of comfortable seating. The dining room was comfortable with a table for six. And just outside the dining room is a terrace with a bar-height glass top table, four chairs and two stools. The photos on this site are of an older table and chairs. The new ones are dark brown outdoor rattan. We own a restaurant and historic hotel, so I appreciate a good kitchen. This one is first class and well stocked. Next level up are the two bedrooms. Master has a small balcony and a beautiful big bathroom. The second bath is in the hallway, for the use of the second bedroom. Outside the bedrooms is a huge well stocked linen cabinet. Every evening we gathered on the rooftop (4th level) for a cocktail and to watch the sun set. This area also has newer furniture than what is shown here. The roof has two molded resin sofas with cushions and a huge rattan cocktail table as well as a covered wet bar & dining area with a table for 6. The grounds are beautiful, with a well manicured lawn and garden area opposite the driveway. If anyone in your party has mobility issues, you should know that there are many stairs. Only negative was some mildew on the porous tiles of the pool area and the rooftop. I presume this was a temporary issue as this villa has a northern exposure and this has been the rainiest season Vieques has ever had. All in all, Casa Columbia is lovely. I would highly recommend it. We have already booked 3 weeks for 2015!

OUR WEEK IN SHANGRI-LA

  • 5 of 5
Now that we’re back in snow country (New England), our week at Casa Columbia glows in memory as our own private Shangri-La. Casa Columbia is a beautiful villa; our photos of rainbows, sunrise and a full moon can't quite convey the tranquility it inspired. The property is very clean and well maintained. We loved the private heated pool on the patio, the stone walk-in showers, the spacious living room with its mountain and Caribbean views, and the fully appointed kitchen, making cooking-at-home a pleasure. Ours was a fabulous week: tropical showers in the early morning gave way to bright sun in time for excursions into the nearby towns of Esperanza and Isabela Segunda, taking pictures, exploring historic sites, and enjoying meals from yummy fish taco lunches to authentic Puerto Rican dinners. We marveled at the powder white sand of Caracas Beach, with its palms and gentle surf. We found a morning yoga class, and a full moon drumming circle. There were art galleries, and an opportunity to kayak on the famed bioluminescent bay. From the moment Marc met us at the airport, helped us get the rental jeep (a necessary four-wheel drive vehicle), accompanied us to the villa, and poured over maps until we were oriented, we were welcomed and cared for. Would we go back and also recommend this outstanding rental to others? Absolutely!
