YELLOW BIRD - CHARMING CARIBBEAN HOME WITH PRIVATE POOL

Vieques Island House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (3rd Bedroom Option) (Sleeps 4-6)

Located in the hillside neighborhood of Villa Borinquen, just a short drive from the beaches and the town of Isabel Segunda, is this newly remodeled and furnished Caribbean home. The house has two beautiful bedrooms and two baths. A lower level third bedroom can also be an option. The deck of its 15 x 30' private pool offers a spectacular day/night view of El Fortin Conde de Mirasol, the historic Spanish Fort and the Atlantic Ocean.

Staying at Yellow Bird is a great way to get away from it all and still be only a short drive away from discovering the island's pristine beaches, amazing snorkeling, great bars and restaurants and local character. To truly enjoy your visit to Vieques, you will need to rent a car.

Why the Owner Chose Villa Borinquen: We love Vieques for its wonderful weather and its lovely people. The trade winds cool the house year round and the sun warms to pool in the winter months. The house is an inviting and comfortable retreat. The island is a fun and amazing adventure at every turn. You will love it!

The Unique Benefits of this House: There are a couple of large supermarkets and lots of small grocery stores nearby. Cooking at the house is really fun. The kitchen is open to the dining room and living room and has peninsula with 4 bar stools. The gas grill is at the pool and there is seating for indoor and outdoor dining. The Pool is Amazing! At night, the view of the Historic Spanish Fort is unbelievably breathtaking.

Yellow Bird, Relaxing

Wonderful home in a barrio over Isabel, this old island neighborhood has all the charm you only find in the islands. Horses, chickens, cats, many a northern transplant mixed in with the locals, just what the doctor ordered.

Kelly and Cheo, the caretakers, are wonderful and will lead you in the right direction on any of your needs. Find a local market, stock up on liquids, meat and dry goods, hit one of the farmers markets and go wild on baked goods, fresh fruits and veggies. Ask about the beaches, Sun bay, red and blue are a few I remember and during the week can be enjoyed in solitude. All provide great walking, swimming, snorkeling, ( I found some gear at the house) some of the best beaches I have ever seen. Take a book, and the beach chairs from the house and enjoy !

Try the Tradewinds for lunch or dinner, great food and Dottie is a great bartender, she will take good care of ya and is full of local knowledge. The Tin Box and The Next Course are great for dinner, for breakfast just go to Esperanza or Isabel and follow your nose.

Yellow Bird was a delight, 1. Wake to chicken crowing, 2. Step into swim trunks, 3. Dive into pool, 4. Relax, Relax, Relax. Only then start your day, go to beach, make coffee, nap, go to town, read, eat, walk, wait for horse to walk by, look for yellow cat. These are the most stressful things you need to think about. Everything else is taken care of by the owners, a well appointed home that is open and clean, the beds were comfortable, (new I think) with nice linens. The kitchen is will equipped and we used the grill by the pool a few times. The gazebo is a great place to read after that early week sunburn.

One of the reviews talked about mosquitos, we had no problems but Cheo did say they started fogging once in a while. Pay attention on the drive to the home as Vieques is not know for straight or smooth roads and I got lost more then once. A great way to see the island though.

Shorts, t-shirts a swim suit and flip-flops are all you really need, unless dinner at the W is on your calendar.

Beautiful Home

It is obvious that the owners take pride in this home and have paid great attention to details. Being our first time in Vieques, we were a bit surprised in what my kids described as how "sketchy" the neighborhood was but it added to the charm of the location. Given the amount of security, we were a bit nervous letting our child sleep in the basement section which is separate from the first floor.
Otherwise, it was a great location to go explore all the beaches of the island, which we did every day. The pool was a great asset. You would think that after a day at the beach you would have your fill, but it was nice to come back and relax and stay cool in the pool, watching the lizards and birds and listening to the sounds.

July Vacation

This house was nice and clean, but needs some improvements. Due to flight delays we got in very late and the caretakers picked us up from the ferry. They were very nice and extremely helpful to us throughout our stay. When we arrived, we were told that one of the window a/c in the balcony bedroom was broken and did not work. Not being used the heat, that was a pretty big deal for us. The other bedroom a/c didn't work very well either and it sprayed water down the wall if you tried run it really cold. Since the bedroom a/c wasn't working we wanted to open windows, but the screens have rips and many handles were broken. A huge improvement would be to fix or replace the big a/c in the living room. The 3rd bedroom is in the basement and not accessible to the house (which we knew). It wouldn't be ideal for kids, but was o.k. for our teenager. It has a nice large and new portable a/c down there. However, this area has horrible mosquitoes. You can't use the laundry room without getting ate alive. My son couldn't use the bathroom down there because it was full of mosquitoes. The rooms are screened, but there are rips. The pool, the outside area, and screened gazebo are wonderful. The house is completely fenced and gated to that makes you feel more secure and you can park your car inside which is nice. All in all I am certain this is one of the nicer homes on Vieques. I am sure that improvements will be made as the house is very nicely maintained.

We loved our stay here! We were a party of 6 and had a blast. The house was tastefully decorated, the layout is open and inviting, and the rooms were all great (and the downstairs room was perfectly soundproofed for light sleepers concerned about the loudness of fellow housemates). I appreciated the subtle touches, the kitchen appliances were nice, extra linens were really cute, we used the gas grill every day, and the blender got a total workout. The back yard with pool was definitely the highlight. We spent so much time by the pool it was awesome! So refreshing after days exploring the island and its extraordinary beaches. We even used the screened in gazebo as our "yoga hut".

Thank you, Daryl, Kelly and Cheo. Can't wait to come back!

Vieques Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Yellow Bird is a great choice for a Vieques vacation. The house is located high on a hill in a real Vieques neighborhood. Nearby are several small stores and a fruit and vegetable stand- we found everything that we needed to cook great breakfasts and a few dinners in a modern kitchen. The living and dining areas were roomy- plenty of space for us to spread out, play card games, read and eat. The bedrooms were large and beds very comfy. The owners made lots of towels available! We really liked the pool area with its grill and views. After a full day at the beach it was delightful to come back and take a swim. The off-site caretakers- Kelly and Cheo- are lovely people and made our stay exceptional. They gave us great advice about beaches, restaurants, shopping and car rental- their help alone made Yellow Bird an outstanding choice. We hope to go back- soon!
