Designed by award-winning tropical architect Carlos Betancourt, Casa Panorama is located on a hill-top in Pilón, a secluded, rural neighborhood 10 minutes from Sun Bay, one of Vieques’ most beautiful beaches, and 10 minutes from the village of Esperanza. It has a BBQ, satellite TV, DVD player, beach chairs, beach umbrella, washing machine, and ceiling fans. Have your coffee in the morning, and your cocktail at sunset, on the veranda looking over an astounding view.
Our stay at Casa Panorama was wonderful! It holds up to its name-breathtaking sunrises over the Atlantic whilst sipping a hot cup of coffee on the veranda.The surroundings are peaceful and the neighbours quiet. Our hostess, Emily, was gracious and accomodating. She saw to it that all our questions were answered and went out of her way to help us get to Vieques. Of all the places I looked at on Homes Away, Casa Panorama was the only one in this price range which had no "hidden costs" - (extra charges for more than two people), and when it states "sleeps 6", then it means 3 nice double beds with mattresses (and not blow up mattresses!) I can truly recommend this property for a quiet Caribbean getaway.
Casa Panorama worked out quite well for us (two couples). We found the house to be well stocked with all necessities. We did have to pick up charcoal starter for the grill (grill is small but was ok). One of the best parts about the house is the front porch - we spent most of our time there! House was clean and comfortable. We were at first disappointed that the location/neighborhood was not published but it worked out great anyway. It is quiet and peaceful - but that is why we come to Vieques.
Some definite pluses were the washing machine, cooling breezes coming up the hillside, coolers/umbrellas/extra towels, outside hose, hammock, the view.
January 2015. We came in and felt like home. Casa Panorama has a huge porch with a breathtaking ocean view. We enjoyed so much to start the day with the best Puerto Rico coffee (Yaucono) and this panorama. We had a wonderful sleep in the comfortable queen bed and appreciated very much to have this well equipped kitchen. In the garden we had horses, lizards and many birds. We even saw a hummingbird! With the Car or Scooter we could reach Esperanza and Sun Beach within 10 minutes. We love Vieques! Go to Bio Bay with Taino. You will never forget this night.
We hope Casa Panorama will stay a secrete place, so it will be available next time when we would like to visit :-). We wish to come back! All the best for Emily and her family.
Quite simply... there is not enough space to write all of the wonderful things about this home.
The location has to be one of the most perfect on the island - close to the beaches, the W spa, great restaurants (Tin Box, Noche, Noche, and El Quenepo to name a few). Plus it is so close to Esperanza, which is where a lot of the action is during the day and at night.
The house itself feels like a home... one of those homes that you dream of with glorious, orangey-pink sunrises every morning that make your eyes water that something so beautiful exists. It has virtually every amenity that you need. The beds are comfortable. The bathroom has excellent water pressure. The kitchen is perfectly equipped. The hammock sways in the gentle breezes. With the windows and doors on the huge porch open - the house benefits from an instant cross breeze. It's cool in the daytime even in the Vieques heat. The same breezes push away the mosquitos, which most other houses have problems with.
There are plenty of beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel equipment.... everything you need for a beach vacation.
Last, but not least... the owners of the house are fantastic, kind and warm. They see to it that everything was taken care of for us, including a pick up at the airport. They were always quick to respond via phone or text if we needed anything at all.
Bottom line, this is a wonderful place to stay on Vieques. Having stayed at the Hix Island Hotel last year, I rate Casa Panorama above and beyond that. My husband and I will stay here again when we visit Vieques next.
Close your eyes and dream about it then open your eyes and your here.
For many years my wife and I have been coming to our second home...Vieques.
We have stayed at many very nice Casitas. I videotape many weddings with my wife as the photographer all over the island and can say we have found the house on our little island second home.
Emily...you are the finest of hosts....even with your new grandchild happening during our stay you found the time to make sure EVERYTHING was perfect or better for us.
As we plan our next trip to Vieques to yet again document another Destination Wedding....be expecting a call from us for accommodations.
The view will be stuck in your head forever.
Thank you for more than we imagined.
Bruce, Michele and little Johnny
Our stay at Casa Panorama was lovely! From the start the owners communicated well and made the process of booking and payment easy. They answered any questions that we had and were very pleasant to deal with.
Their representative on the island was punctual and helpful. The house was clean and comfortable. They had towells, beach chairs, an umbrella etc that all made the beach visits pleasant and easy.
The house was convienently located in a central area with quick access to all the attractions of the island.
The views from the house were stunning. Really a very pleasant stay from start to finish!
Our family has had the good fortune to stay at Casa Panorama 3 times in as many years. Each time we have stayed a little longer than the year before, and each time we enjoy it more. The house is always clean, well cared for and ready for our arrival. There are always cooling trade winds to keep you comfortable, and ceiling fans just in case. The house has all the necessities for a beach vacation; chairs, umbrella, cooler, plenty of towels, charcoal grill, and blender for your favorite frozen concoction. The sunrises from the balcony are special with your morning cafe con leche, and the views to the south shore are fabulous. You can see the two cayos off of Esperanza, Sun Bay, Mosquito Bay (the brightest bioluminescent bay in the world), Puerto Ferro, etc. If you get tired looking at the Caribbean Sea, the views of the surrounding hills are also excellent. The neighborhood is quiet, and the night skies are spectacular. This year, Venus, a crescent Moon and Jupiter were lined up in the sky. I live in an area with very little light pollution, but I am always astounded by the night skies while on Vieques.
The owners have always been very communicative and will do what they can to make sure your stay is comfortable. Each year they have had someone meet us at the airport, get us to the rental car, then the house, and make sure we are settled in. If any problems arise during your stay (we have never had any problems), I am confident they would take care of it promptly. We have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone.
Going to the biobay is a must for anyone who has not seen it. Our activity highlight this was a 1/2 day sail on a Hobie Cat with Jorge and the Little Sailboat Co. We sailed out to Limon Reef for an excellent snorkel (lots of fish & live coral), and then to Playa Fanduca (an otherwise inaccessible beach) for another snorkel and to dry up a little. For an elegant and tasty dinner try El Quenepo, Conoco or Next Course. Trying food from the roadside vendors is also a good option for those not interested in getting out of beach clothes.
We will definitely return to Casa Panorama next year, hopefully for an even longer stay.
Vieques Island feels like going back in time. There are no traffic lights, no highways, no fast food restaurants, no high-rises. It does have gorgeous beaches, friendly people, and a laid-back, tranquil environment.
