About Kristina Shelton, Property Manager

We are a married couple with a partner in the home who all share a love for La Escapada and Vieques Island as well as lounging poolside next to palm trees swaying in the breeze.

Why Kristina Shelton, Property Manager chose Vieques Island

We have travelled the Caribbean and the world and just fell in love with this charming house in the beautiful hills of Vieques Island. Everyone who experiences time here feels the same as we do about La Escapada. It is a special home for all to enjoy and is indeed an enchanted place. The bioluminescent bay is a MUST see and experience whether by pontoon or kayak. This is a very casual island with all creature comforts but no pretenses. Men: Bring a pair of flip flops, a swim suit, shorts and perhaps a hawaiian shirt and you are good to go anywhere. Ladies: a sundress or sarong will do just fine. Come be as comfortable as you want to be.

What makes this house unique

Beach or pool today? Make lunch or try one of the delicious island cafes? Those are your primary decisions here at La Escapada. You cannot go wrong either way. Vieques beaches are among the most secluded in the world with no concession stands or thronging masses. Our pool is surrounded by beautiful palms under the sun all morning and afternoon and is magical under the star studded skies at night. You have many excellent dining establishments to choose for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Or just stay home and enjoy each other's company over a glass of wine or island cocktail. This is a very romantic retreat!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
1 week on a hill with an amazing pool. The house had all the necessary equipment for a great beach vacation. We packed our Jeep every afternoon (after mornings in the pool) with chairs an umbrella and a couple travel coolers and headed to a different beach everyday. There were plenty of beach towels and even a few noodles. All the stuff we needed was right in the closet. The house was clean and airy. Great water pressure and the king bed was very comfy. The twin beds in the other room were not great for grown ups, but we made do. The covered patio was a great place for evening meals and a welcome escape from the sun. The pool chairs were terrific and the umbrellas are on wheels. Awesome. Caretakers Kristina and Tony were always a phone call away. Tony actually met us at the grocery store and lead us to the house. We have stayed elsewhere on the island and this joint was super quiet and peaceful by comparison. The Tin Box bar and restaurant was a short drive down the road. Where we spent a couple lively evenings enjoying organic barbeque and fresh watermelon margaritas. A few notes: you need a jeep, don't miss Secret beach, Red beach and Blue beach and lastly, Esperanza is the town to spend your evenings in. One more thing, the best snorkeling is at Mosquito Pier.

Birthday Week!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and three of my close girlfriends visited La Escapada July 32rd-30th. The house was better then we could have hoped. La Escapada was charming and cozy, we immediately felt right at home. Staying at La Escapada provided us with the privacy of our own island get away, but still close enough to all the action in Esperanza. We loved waking up and drinking our coffee on the outside veranda. The amenities that came with staying in the house were great. The beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, coolers and more made our daily trips to the beach hassle free. The pool was a major plus for us, we lounged on floats and snacked on fresh coconuts we cut from the trees. The pool was also great for a late night dips, perfect star gazing location. Staying at La Escapada you get to experience Vieques like no other. The house is surrounded by the lush landscape that makes Vieques what it is. We have truly fallen in love with Vieques and La Escapada. I can not say
enough how much we enjoyed ourselves. We can not wait to come back and stay at La Escapada again!

Warm breezes and blue water

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 perfect days at the wonderful La Escapada. This hilltop home embraced us from the start with its soft breezes, sparkling pool and everything we needed for a great island adventure. I much prefer the restaurants and bars on this side of the island, though nothing is far away in Vieques. The house had everything we needed as well as cool art, comfortable beds, open and airy living room/dining room with plenty of soft landing spots. But the best part is the perfect privacy of the outdoor dining table and the pool. We had some spectacular dinners by candle light. Don't miss Blue Beach, the Bio Bay, Mar Azul for a sunset drink, and meet as many locals as you can!

Girls week out

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation to Vieques was fantastic: great weather, beautiful beaches, unbelievable food. But the stay at La Escapeda made this return trip even better. The photos of this home and property don't do it justice! It is secluded, quiet, beautiful and having a pool just feet from the door was a welcome sight after hot afternoons at the white sandy beaches. The house has every amenity you could possibly need. We loved it and would absolutely return for another relaxing week in the Carribbean!

A Fantastic Escape

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we entered the front gate and arrived at La Escapada, we were relaxed. The beautiful grounds, the architecture, the pool and the views are all compelling and inviting. This is the perfect getaway offering privacy, a very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, and a beautiful setting. The interior is both comfortable and stylish, filled with local art. We will be back!!!

Paradise on a Quiet Island

  • 5 of 5
I could not have been more relaxed after spending ten days at La Escapada, a gem of a home in the Pilon area of Vieques. We have been home just two weeks are already planning a return trip - it was THAT good. The rooms well appointed, airy and utterly relaxing....loved dinners on the patio overlooking the pool. And the pool was crystal clear perfection - a great way to start and end the day...or, truthfully, just spend the day lounging about with an island beverage in hand. At night the stars shine incredibly bright from horizon to horizon -something we rarely get to see. We even spied the Southern Cross...apparently Jimmy Buffett didn't make that constellation up. It shone in a perfect cross directly out from the pool's edge. Astounding sight.

The owners really put time in to maintaining this retreat which made our stay absolutely effortless. The grounds of LaEscapada are immaculate and stretch on and on. They have flowering plants of all kinds as well as mango and coconut trees, a royal palm, and -best of all- one of the legendary ceiba trees, too. Cute little frogs serenade you to sleep and tiny bird sounds will be your alarm clock (but not 'til a civilized 9am or so).

There is much, much to do on the island -- we scuba'ed, snorkeled, found our own unpopulated beaches, chartered a sailboat to Culebra, hunted seaglass, enjoyed the local restaurants (got to try Coconuts!) and then found a sparkling nirvana at the BioBay. Take a BioBay sea kayak tour, dip your hands in the sparkling water and prepare to be astounded at the dinoflagellates that flash their dazzling lights. It's like nothing you have ever seen before, I promise.

The food on Vieques is great - every single meal we had was top notch. For Sunday brunch try Trade Winds...lobster benedict is out of this world delicious. Pair it with a bloody mary with 3 shrimp (Mary n the Boys) and enjoy! For shopping, don't miss the strip of beachfront stores in Esperanza and there's a fullservice grocery in Isabelle II. So absolutely do rent a car - you will want to explore all parts of the island.
