Casa Elegante is centrally situated to take advantage of all Vieques has to offer and has all the modern comforts and facilities
Every detail from door knobs to the beautiful local art on the walls of Casa Elegante has been carefully chosen to create a relaxing, tropical Zen environment
"You could not find a more perfect home. The swimming pool alone puts it over the top. Everything is upscale modern and the garden is a tropical paradise. It is like having like a native in a super luxurious home."
Casa Elegante is a beautiful home. We felt completely safe and secure staying there. The house had everything we needed and more! High quality linens and bath towels, lovely furnishings. The decorating and attention to details are evident throughout the entire home.
We made good use of the provided beach towels, beach chairs, cooler and the Rav4 pretty much every day. Vieques has some amazing beaches. And when we arrived home after a rough day relaxing or playing in the waves, a quick rinse in the outdoor shower and a refreshing dip in the pool were a wonderful way to spend the rest of the afternoon. After going out for dinner (even though the kitchen is so well equipped, I just couldn’t bring myself to cook on vacation – after all it is vacation!) We enjoyed the rooftop at night listening to the coqui’s and enjoying the breeze.
A very nice touch was that shampoos, conditioner and body wash are provided in all bathrooms. Made packing a little easier.
Leslie and David were on top of answering questions and prompt in picking us up at the airport and dropping us off for our flight home. Super helpful and available for any questions we had while on the island.
Go and enjoy this lovely home on the island of Vieques. We did and will have very fond memories for years to come.
Every imaginable amenity, comfort, etc. Thanks so much for lending us the place. We had five fabulous days here - of course, we couldn't get to every beach, but we tried - each more picturesque than the last. You have a marvelous spot - perfectly situated to catch evening breezes; our boys enjoyed swimming in the pool. We sunbathed on the roof, and watched the iguanas eat bouganvilla & the sea. Poking around the house, we all remarked, "What taste! What a great book collection!" The kettle was used for afternoon tea in the garden, after a nap or a walk in the village, or to the fort.
And Leslie & David were so generous with their time in ensuring we were initially oriented & situated.
Thank you again for such a marvelous stay. We hope to return. Rebecca, Ed, Asher, Jacob, Celia, Jack & Paul.
House was perfect for 3 couples! Roof deck was wonderful for star gazing at night. Pool was nice since it is a little far from the beach, but having the rental car made up for that, and so did the views. This house has EVERYTHING you need and the caretakers Leslie and David were great.
Our stay at Casa Elegante turned out even better than we could have hoped. Leslie, the property manager, fielded our many questions about travel logistics, activities, and local restaurants. She was such a gracious host - it would not have been nearly as seamless a trip without her help. Not to mention, the house is lovely, in a really convenient location, incredibly secure, and with about every amenity you could need. The view from the roof deck can't be beat, and the pool is so calm and peaceful (although a little chilly in December). The beach chairs and snorkeling gear were put to good use - it's those types of details that really make for an easy vacation. We are so happy to have found this house and can't wait to visit again in the future.
Best of both worlds; easy access to town for shopping, restaurants, centrally located for quick drive to all beaches on north and south sides, elegant, comfortable, well-appointed house, quiet. friendly neighborhood, private, protected property with lap pool, gorgeous ocean views
