About Jennifer Gold

We do everything we can to make Casa Ladera a beautiful, comfortable home away from home, and we know you'll love it. We live in Vieques for part of the year, and are very close by in case any need arises. When we're not there, our good friend and property manager is always on call.

Come on down and stay with us, and see why Casa Ladera has been one of the most well-loved places to stay in Vieques for almost ten years!

Jennifer Gold purchased this house in 2004

Why Jennifer Gold chose Vieques Island

Vieques is a special, magical place, with the most beautiful beaches I've seen in all my world travels. It's a tiny island that feels about a million miles from San Juan, and really needs to be experienced to be believed. The perfect palm-fringed white sand beaches, the wild horses roaming around every corner, and the lovely, laid-back island atmosphere, plus some excellent restaurants and fun little beach bars... what's not to love!

What makes this house unique

Casa Ladera boasts a huge beautiful pool, and is just 100 feet (one minute walk) to a secluded beach where you can swim, snorkel, and collect sea glass. The property is bursting with fruit trees, including mangos, bananas, limes, papaya and canepas. Or if you prefer to buy your own fruit, we're just a one-minute drive to the island's largest supermarket! We offer free wireless high-speed internet, A/C in every room, satellite TV with all premium channels, full kitchens including dishwasher and microwave, and more. For beach time, we provide beach chairs, towels and coolers. Pretty much everything you could need for a perfect vacation!

Great Spot to Unwind Island Style!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of three enjoyed our stay in the Casita at Casa Ladera. The accomodations -- 2 large bedrooms, a well stocked kitchen (blender, good knives), bathroom, sitting area, shaded porch and outside shower suited us fine. Property managers Renee and Nenad were helpful in steering us in the right direction for restaurants, beaches and other activities. The pool, (pool and beach toys stored in the guest bathroom at end of the pool) patio and shaded pool bar area with 2 gas grills (where we grilled fresh caught grouper and lobster) are wonderful. As hard as it may be, guests should not get too relaxed at Casa Ladera as there is too much to see and do on this treasure of an island. A small, but beautiful beach is a short (< 1 minute) walk from Casa Ladera. There you can enjoy the warm surf on the Atlantic side of the island, or search the beach for sea glass that is plentiful. We ran into a family who brought their dogs and horses down to the ocean for a swim. My daughter and I had fun body surfing with the kids. The owners and property managers have put together a Bible of a binder with information on beaches, restaurant and activities on the island. Our first stop was at Beike's Bistro, where we enjoyed a much needed rum punch after a long travel day. We got hooked on Puerto Rican dishes such as mofongo with relleno sauce. We also enjoyed meals at Bananas (great setting) and Duffy's (try the fish tacos) across from the beach in Esperanza. We had fun meeting local artisans displaying their work on the malecon. Casa Ladera is conveniently located to the AVIS car rental, Morales grocery store and the islands' two gas stations. The only problem with our stay was that it was not long enough!

Our Stay at Casa Ladera

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and inviting. We had everything we needed (except a clothes line for soggy towels and bathing suits). We felt very safe and at home the entire week. There was sufficient privacy, even with the other units filled. Renee was super helpful and accommodating. The beach was beautiful and our daily routine was to go down early for sea glass hunting. This was our second trip to Vieques and I would definitely choose this rental again. On our last trip we stayed at the Wyndham (now the W), and I preferred staying at Casa Ladera - so relaxed and laid back. The pool was GREAT after a long day at the beach. Favorite beaches: Navio, Red Beach, Blue Beach. Favorite restaurants: Conuco, Tin Box. Loved snorkeling at the pier (saw 5 sea turtles) and, of course, the Bio-luminescent Bay. Daily trips to the bakery in Isabel II was a must for donuts and sandwiches. We didn't want to leave.....

Perfect Location ... Great Ameneties

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our party of 9. We had 5 kids (ages 7 - 15) and 4 adults. They loved the pool, close access to the beach, the iguanas, etc. The houses were very nice with AC and all the amenities. The only complaint we had (which was not a fault of the owner) was that a large group (10 or 15) came in one night and spent a very LONG night bar-b-queing and swimming in the pool area. They made lots of noise making it hard to sleep. The noise went on into the early hours of the morning. All in all, I would give this place a 10 out of 10. Renee was very helpful in giving us a thorough orientation of the places to eat and visit. The beaches are beautiful, and the location was perfect for getting to almost anywhere on the island. Our last 2 days we spent back on the main island and all my kids said they wished we had stayed back at Casa Ladera a couple of extra days instead.

Beautiful place on a wonderful island.

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean, beautiful and greatly located with services nearby. They are providing Jeeps you can rent from them directly. No need to care about renting a car.

The place is safe and having a big swimming pool next to our door was really apreciated.

Communication with owners and staff was smooth and quick, you will feel comfortable at doing business with them.

Vieques is a wonderful Island and Casa Ladera is a great place to stay. We have enjoyed the Casita next to the main house as it is well equipped and comfortable for all (4) of us. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Vacation in Vieques

  • 5 of 5

I was initially drawn to Vieques by reading about the W. We spent our first three days at the W, which was beautiful, but a big let-down. We felt totally nickled and dimed at the W.

But then...

We rented a Jeep and headed over to the Casita at Casa Ladera. There's really not much to elaborate on what other's have said - it's just perfect. We have two girls - 10 and 13. We enjoy a lovely hotel and a fancy dinner, but when it comes to spending a week + at the beach, renting a home is the best way to go. Casa Ladera is comfortable, not fancy. The Casita is great - functional kitchen opens to eating area and small living room, which opens to the patio with a dining table. It is a short walk to the nicely-kept pool area. Also, the views are incredible. You are one home off the ocean (facing North, maybe, towards mainland PR). The big white home oceanfront does block a small amount of the view, but really, the view is lovely. Also, the roof deck on the casita gives an even better view - great place for sunrise and sunset. Even the first floor patio of the apartments has a great view of the ocean, as it's a few feet above the pool deck.

Renee, the "hostess", was fantastic. She gave great recommendations and was very helpful and personable.

The Casita was well stocked - you really don't need to bring anything but your bathing suit and a cover-up. The island is so cool. Esperanza, on the other side, is a great place to get a drink and food. Tin Box was incredible (bbq). Grocery store is right around the corner but terrible - alas, they have the basics. Definitely plan to go to the farmer's market nearby, I think on Tuesday and Wednesday.

We loved Sun Beach, among many, many others. Many of the beaches are on calm coves, so great for little kids. The beach at Ladera is beautiful, too, but more like a New England beach with rocks and brown sand. Oh, definitely schedule a bio bay tour in advance. It was totally incredible. Enjoy!

Heavenly!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away. Not only was the place clean and stocked with all the things we didn't want to pack, but Renee really made our trip.

First, she drove us around and showed us where things where. Then, as soon as we got to the place, she sat down at the table with us and, with a map, wrote us notes, told us about everything from the farmers market, to where to shop, to where the best snorkeling, beaches, to-go sandwiches...All of it. It was priceless!!! We will never get rid of that map, it was the key to the place for us! It made our trip so memorable, having a local insider share all of her favorites. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

Vieques island is only eight miles off the coast of mainland Puerto Rico, but in many ways it feels a world away. It's a beautiful, lush island with an endless selection of secluded and often empty beaches, each with soft white sand and warm turquoise water. Vieques offers charming cafes, restaurants and bars for all tastes and budgets, and a number of fine dining options as well. The main town in Vieques, Isabel Segunda, is colorful and bustling, and the smaller town on the south side, Esperanza, boasts a lively strip of cafes and bars. There are also a few grocery stores where you'll find food and supplies to cook meals in your own kitchen.

In addition to lounging on a beach, you can enjoy incredible snorkeling and diving, kayaking and sailing, fishing, cycling, yoga, massage, and of course the famous bio luminescent bay where you'll witness the beauty and magic of a lagoon glowing in the darkness.

Casa Ladera is located about halfway between the Vieques airport (VQS) and the main town of Isabel Segunda where the ferry comes in. The island's largest supermarket, Supermercado Morales, is just up the street, a one-minute drive or five-minute walk from Casa Ladera.

We are just a short drive to the island's best restaurants, shops and bars. It's a one-minute walk to a lovely secluded beach, known as Sea Glass Beach (or Playa Cofi by the locals) and you're just a few minutes' drive from the famous Vieques beaches which are all on beautiful undeveloped and unspoiled land.

Casa Ladera has the perfect location - close enough to everything important, but quiet and secluded enough to feel like you're away from it all.
