Guestbook comments from the owner

Gorgeous view, total calm, chaise lounges on the patio, beautiful inside and out, comfortable bed with extra layers of softness, lots of soft clean towels....

The owners provided everything we needed, and more: snorkel equipment, books, lots of information on Vieques, a vehicle in excellent condition available to rent, coolers and beach chairs, washer and dryer...

We would recommend this highly to anyone wanting beauty, quiet, and easy access (5 minutes by car) to town for good food, fine art, a bar with live music. And of course the beaches - irresistible.

We plan to return.

attractive, quiet and enjoyabe

  • 4 of 5
beso del caribe is an attractive, modern, and well equipped property. i would and have recommended the property to a friend.
the kitchen is well equipped with everything in working order. the bedrooms are comfortable with ample closet space. the mattresses are a bit soft. the bathroom is good sized with a large shower.
we wanted cable tv to watch play-off games. the dish needed to be repaired while we were there. we wish that pbs had been available. the wifi was sporadic at best.
the living room chairs and couch were not very comfortable and the positioning of the tv was a bit high for comfortable viewing.
the deck was very comfortable and had a nice view. it felt private and pleasant. there is a resident cat, who was very cute and entertaining!
we have rented many properties throughout the caribbean and beso del caribe was the best and the most expensive!!!! we highly recommend the property and we hope to rent it again in 2016!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and found everything to be well equipped and pleasant...great to hear that you are already looking to return next year. We have several guests who stay with us on a regular basis. Sorry you experienced the minor inconvenience with the satellite service...Jay has since had everything put back in order. Internet we have always found can be sporadic...part of island life. I was curious as to your cost reference...

(guest response)...yes, i found vieques rentals to be more expensive than the many other caribbean islands that where we have rented. we never rent anything terribly fancy and just want the basics, like laundry, wifi, cable, 2 bedrooms, a decently equipped kitchen, as we like to cook. your place was the best place that we have rented as far as up keep, cleanliness, kitchen functionality, great light (loved the high ceilings in the 2nd story apt.). etc. AND i think that i like vieques the best of any island we have been to, and like i said i am so ready to go back for a visit!!!! i have to go out and shovel some snow now!!!

Charming, well cared for, simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I had a blissful vacation at Beso. Lori and Pat were quick to respond and extremely helpful every step of the way. The property is extremely well maintained and comfortable. The pictures are accurate, but could never capture the beauty and tranquility of the place. The kitchen is well stocked for those wanting to prepare meals at home and the property provides everything you need for beach going.

Jay, the property manager, provided incredibly helpful advice and recommendations both before and during our stay. I can't express just how instrumental he was in making our trip the best vacation we have ever had. We have been talking about going back from the moment we left!

Absolute hands-down the BEST vacation spot ever.

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed at Beso for 3 nights and it was absolutely perfect. The pictures really don't do it justice, but the ones provided are spot-on! The house was spotless upon our arrival, with all kinds of beach supplies, and a fantastic bed. The mornings were beautiful with the view, the afternoons were wonderful since we could walk to the beach, and evenings were filled with awesome local restaurants and bars. Jay, the property manager, was absolutely WONDERFUL. From the moment he picked us up at the airport (which by the way has the best airport bar we've ever been to) till the day we left, he was nothing but helpful and friendly. Even helped us find a car to rent and drew out maps and recommended excellent restaurants. He was truly one of the best parts of the trips, and he knew exactly what kind of beach and food we wanted! The beaches were absolutely beautiful and the wild horses were a trip-I loved that. The locals were friendly as well, and on this side of the island I guarantee you will meet the same ones in different bars/cafes, and they will remember you! Roy's coffee is great, Taverna made me a heart shaped pizza on Valentine's Day, and there's a Panaderia La Viequense made the best breakfast sandwich I've ever had. We also loved Lazy Jack's and Al's.

I can't recommend this place enough, and I have told everyone I know about it. I would come back and live there 365 days a year if I could. Don't miss this little gem, and yes, there really are Pina Colada supplies waiting for you upon arrival! Thank you so much again Lori, Pat, and Jay for your wonderful recommendations and hospitality. You will see us again!!

Great first class property with world class views!

  • 5 of 5
I have been to a couple of properties in Vieques that range from typical to very expensive and I can safely say this is the best buy in Vieques. All the house is in perfect condition, great beds, first class linens, great kitchen. You don't need to bring anything, they have beach chairs, snorkle equipment, BBQ, satelite TV, wirless internet and all work perectly. My wife and I, along with my 2 daughters had a wonderful time and will certainly be back!!!

This is an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week at the house and had a great time. The house is immaculate and in a beautiful location. It is very close to a nice quiet beach that is ideal for small kids and a short drive from the main town and the markets. Lori and Pat were great to work with and we were met in the airport by Jay their manager on the Island who was absolutely a pleasure to meet and work with. The house has everything you could ever need including snorkeling gear so we really only had to bring a few cloths to the island. Overall this was a perfect vacation in a perfect place and we are definitely planning to return to the same place on our next visit to the island which can not come soon enough. I was without any reservations recommend this place to anyone traveling to the island.

Map

Car: recommended

Beso del Caribe is in a nice, safe neighborhood in Barrio Villa Borinquen just a very short walk to a protected beach. It is a great location for a quiet stroll, hunting for shells and sea glass, snorkeling, swimming or kayaking. Best yet...take a car to the many fabulous beaches on the island and you can enjoy sunbathing, body surfing, boogie boarding, swimming, snorkeling, diving, and other water activities. Vieques has several fabulous restaurants to choose from, including the newly opened W Resort. You may opt to fill your day with a massage, mountain biking, hiking or sailing.
