We are retired educators who found Vieques a wonderfully desireable location to relax from all the many activities and challenges in our lives. It is a great place to be with friends and family.

Paul Burnim purchased this apartment in 2006

Vieques is an enchanting island location full of natural beauty and stilled unspoiled by commercialization and overcrowded beaches. We began enjoying and returning to the island from our first visit in 2005, and have treasured each trip here.

This in-town apartment is a short walk to the markets, the stores and many restaurants. The Atlantic Ocean is just down the street and swimming or just enjoying sunsets become a daily routine. Most events are at the Town Square or the Fort - both within an easy walk from the apartment.

GREAT HOUSE IN GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The house was everything we expected it to be based on the description, and I would stay there again without hesitation. Well appointed, clean, comfortable and with a thoughtful touch; Paul has supplied everything you need to enjoy a day at the beach, ready to lend. The house is situated in the middle of a residential neighborhood with a couple of bars close by, but part of what I am looking for when I travel is a peek at how people live, so it was perfect for us. If you require absolute silence to be happy, you may not enjoy it as much, but we thought it was great. Close to coffee shops, bakeries, restaurants, a museum, the town square and plenty of other places worth walking to, and features a lovely outdoor patio for when you feel like sitting down at the end of the day and just people watching. We also had a car, since we were intending to do a beach tour of Vieques, so we were able to go back and forth to Esperanza, as well as the beaches, with ease. I vacillated between staying in Isabel and Esperanza, but in the end I had no regrets with the choice we made (and given that it was spring break, I actually think being on the municipal side of the island was the quieter choice) The small size of the island makes everything quite doable, and the longest ride you'll have to take to cross the island is 15 minutes or so.

TWO LADIES GET AWAY FOR R&R IN VIEQUES!

Two Ladies get away for R&R in Vieques!
  • 5 of 5
Casa Bella in Isabel Segundo was the perfect ladies getaway for two old college friends! The sweet, two-bedroom apartment was immaculate and well-equipped. Owner Paul was helpful and accommodating in orienting us on our first trip to Vieques. Caretaker Aurelio arranged airport pick up when we arrived. Walking distance to groceries, restaurants, sunset cocktails on the water. We recommend this apartment, and would happily return!

FELT LIKE HOME IN PARADISE!

  • 4 of 5
This 2-bedroom apartment was in a great location in Isabel II. Aurelio, the property manager kindly picked us up from the ferry terminal and took us to the apartment. We later decided that we wanted to rent a car but realized that all the rentals on the island were out of available cars. Aurelio also rents cars and had one available for us for a good deal. The grocery store, Black Beard sports store, bank, and lots of restaurants and bars are all within walking distance. You can also walk to Sea Glass Beach.

The apartment was fully equipped. It even had a blender and a grill! Lots of beach gear, (towels, chairs, noodles, coolers) and even snorkeling equipment that we used when we went to Blue Beach. The patio was great to sit at in the morning with some coffee and enjoy the sun and fresh air. I often spotted a beautiful hummingbird that would fly by and perch near the house.

The only thing you have to get used to is the roosters calling throughout the early morning hours.

Paul, the owner, was a pleasure to work with and we look forward to staying here again in the future.

RECENT VACA STAY

  • 4 of 5
This apartment is really well maintained and is very comfortable and centrally located that makes it easy for walking every where. Glass beach is at the end of the street and makes for an adventurers hunt for some treasures to bring home. It is a small but secluded beach so if you take a chair with you to enjoy some quiet time it is a great location. Lots of excellent restaurants are downtown as well as some enjoyable waterfront bars. The neighborhood is very quant San Juanish and be aware the roosters and hens do rule. Bring ear plugs as they enjoy their morning time. They also make for amusing watching and in our case we ended up naming our favoriates. There is a huge selection of Videos and CD's to choose from also but this really isn't TV time so get out in the sun and enjoy the beautiful beaches and restaurants

A HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay in Casa Bella on our first trip to Vieques! We didn't know much about the island and Paul (owner) and Aurelio and Enid (property managers) were amazing. They gave us tons of information and suggested activities to enhance our visit. They even drove us to and from the airport!

The apartment made us feel at home and it was easy to feel comfortable there. It's beautifully decorated and is filled with anything you'd need for a great vacation (beach chairs, towels, snorkel gear, kitchen amenities, washer/dryer and more!). It's right in downtown Isabel and conveniently located to restaurants, bars, grocery store and tour groups (e.g., BlackBeards).

An added bonus was the collection of movies, music and games in the house! Definitely not something you find in every rental and it definitely added to our experience. Definitely recommend!

OUTSTANDING VACATION PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was amazing. The house has more than everything we needed, and right in town to enjoy shops, restaurants, and nights by the ocean. Paul and Aurelio helped us with every question we had, and helped make our stay so relaxed and wonderful. Vieques is magically enticing, and to return each afternoon or evening to the apartment and terrace with fans, lots of cd's, books or movies. The shower alone is worth the stay. The remodeling should be in a magazine. Can't wait to come back!!! Muchas Gracias!!!!
