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.

An amazing place in pardise!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time in Vieques and in this beautiful house. We could have gone anywhere in the Caribbean, but we chose to come back here. We love this island and this house offers amazing accommodations. The house is so well equipped - it has everything you can ever need. It is very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the amazing view from the patio where we had dinner and cocktails every day. I cannot recommend this place strongly enough!

Beso, home away from our residence...

  • 5 of 5

Granted this wasn't our first visit to Vieques, yet it was our first time at Beso del Caribe. my wife and I have stayed at various different locations and guesthouses, Beso is (in our opinion) is ideal for those who have been to the island previously and are looking for a place just far enough, though, not too far away from town. having a vehicle is a plus for traditional "tourist" activities but not entirely necessary. Dog beach is a stones toss down the hill and the view is remotely calming, if one is looking to "just get away and relax". which was our desire, then this is the place. That we did, every morning we took the time to sit out on the deck, calmly listen to soothing sounds of the ocean waves, while serenely enjoying our morning coffee, a far cry from our daily routine of shotgunning our coffee, running out the door to beat the traffic almost forgetting to swallow the mouthful of coffee prior to giving each other a kiss good bye as we run out to face the world. At Beso, we faced the world, faced the world by watching the waves, facing the ocean, reflecting on how much we miss because society is constantly hurrying along attempting to complete a task that can wait, we found ourselves admiring the horses who roam the roadways reminiscing of times when the neighborhood children would play until the streetlights came on.

When you desire to go somewhere, to relax, have no rush nor responsibilities, Beso is the place to be. Don't bother spending stupid amounts of reserved funds on an "all inclusive resort" there's always a time limit, a schedule to maintain, or some hidden fees. Staying at Beso, the beds are more comfortable then any other place we've stayed, both the wife and I have various sleeping patterns, between her waking at the first rooster crow or my three busted vertebra, one of us will have an issue wherever we stay, Beso is the first place that both of us slept comfortably, soundly and deeply. Just open the windows and allow the ocean breeze to calm your aching bones. Not once did we turn on the television. Yes there is full entertainment, satellite TV, DVD, PPV, even music stations, yet why bother? All the entertainment one could remotely desire (within reason) is a five minute drive to town or heaven forbid, a ten minute drive to the other side of the island. But, the island is an entirely different topic, Beso is the home to reside during that precious time away, so many of us require, though so few of us find.

Find the time...

Great Rental, Great Island

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this vacation rental. Booking worked out well via emails and timely responses. They have a property manager who lives on the island, Jay, who is great and so helpful with picking us up from the airport and giving us shopping hints and tricks. The rental is very clean and well kept. Has all the things you need, i.e. washer/dryer, coolers, full kitchen, beach supplies (chairs, noodles, snorkeling). We rented a vehicle and highly recommend that for this island and rental location.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beso del Caribe was everything it says. The apartment is nicely furnished, fully equipped and quiet. It has beach towels, chairs and coolers so you are set for your trips to the beach. We liked the location about 10 minutes from town and a two minute walk to the beach. Vieques is a wonderful place to vacation with awesome beaches. Our favorites outings were Chiva Beach, Punta Arenas (see turtles and manta rays snorkeling), Vieques Paddleboarding mangrove ecosystem tour, and Coqui Fire Cafe. We'd definitely stay at Beso again.

Fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and I would recommend it to a friend. Place was spacious, nicely equipped and away from center of the town (which we liked it). I slept with open windows and could hear the waves. Beach is 5 minutes walk down the hill. Owners Pat and Lori as well as property manager Jay are very helpful and responsive. You will need a car for sure to drive around Island and go to other beaches that have good snorkeling and calm waters for swimming.

Great Vacation Headquarters

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks. Jay met us at the airport and helped us get our car rental and showed us around as it was our first visit to Vieques. The accommodations were as advertised and the view was great. Beds were comfortable. Couldn't ask for more.

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.
