Vieques Island House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 pull-out Futon, sleeps up to 6 people

Casa Esperanza is located in the quaint fishing village of Esperanza on the south coast which definitely is the buzzing tourist side of the island with beaches such as Sun Bay, Esperanza Beach, Media Luna, Navio, and also restaurants, bars, and shops within walking distance from the house.

This newly decorated rental is located a little off the street, so there is private parking inside the lot and there is also a large shady backyard with patio furniture and hammocks to laze around in enjoying the breeze and garden or use the grill grill to cook your party a feast. A new outdoor covered porch has been added along with an additional bathroom and outdoor shower to rinse off after the beach.

There is new living room furniture and the kitchen has also been updated with new linens, supplies, and cookware. The bedrooms and bathroom have also been redone with new furniture, mattresses, and also higher quality linens. Some of the amenities include high speed wifi, Gas BBQ, hammock, fully equipped kitchen, A/C in the bedrooms for your sleeping comfort, ceiling and floor fans throughout the house to keep the breezes flowing, HI-DEF TV w/ satellite and DVD player, Radio/CD Player, guest book with travel information, a Book, CD and DVD library, fresh linens, New Washing Machine, beach towels, beach chairs, cooler, a 5 -10 min walk to the beach, restaurants, and shops. We also offer complimentary pick up and delivery service to the house with information and maps, and directions. If you do stay with us, you will treated to some insider information since I have working, on this island, in the hospitality industry for 20 years and have been renting out houses (mine, and other people's) for 9 years and my husband is a native VIequense who grew up here. We would truly help to make your vacation an enjoyable one.

If you have any questions, or need more info please do not hesitate to get ahold of me. Would love to see you on vacation and introduce you to the amazing island of Vieques.

About Michelle Lannoo

I came to Vieques 24 years ago and fell in love with the local people, culture, and island living and still to this day, I consider myself to be one of the luckiest people in the world to have found my true home in VIeques. On the island, I also met my husband Juan who is a local VIequense Artist and actually grew up here throughout his youth and now we have a son, Leonardo, who is doing the same. Have been in the hospitality industry for most of my life so am very good at taking care of my guests and trying to cater to their needs and also with mine and my husband's love for the island, we can set you off to either see all the beautiful sites and beaches or if you are adventurous, we can direct you on your own adventure hiking, kayaking. or just exploring off the beaten track.

Look forward to meeting you on vacation.

Michelle Lannoo purchased this house in 1965

Why Michelle Lannoo chose Vieques Island

This house has been in my husband's family for over 40 years and went through a major renovation in Summer/Fall of 2010 to convert the house into the Casa Esperanza Rental. It is now the finished product of much love, blood, sweat, and tears.

What makes this house unique

Casa Esperanza's 2 biggest attributes are its location which is walkable to beaches, restaurants, stores, bars, and gift shops so a car is a benefit, but you can also spend some of your time on foot or bike and only rent a vehicle for part of your vacation to save some money and actually enjoy the outdoors and experience the local area.

The other highlight of Casa Esperanza is the private covered back patio which offers an outside area and tropical garden almost as big as the common area in the house, to relax, enjoy, cook. eat, drink and hear the beautiful sounds of the nature. Can be used during the day or even at night since there is outdoor lighting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

While our trip here was not intended for a family vacation(Mother's funeral), Michelle, you made our arrival and stay as pleasant as possible under the circumstances. For that, me and my whole family are very grateful...

We plan to return for a vacation shortly and will definitely stay with you again.



Thanks, once again for everything,

Harry Jr. and Family

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a delightful Home Away from Home for your Vieques vacation, look no further. Choose Casa Esperanza. My husband and I spent 2 weeks in this lovely house and enjoyed our stay tremendously.

The kitchen has everything you need to cook every meal; the living room is cozy and comfortable; the master bed was likewise comfortable and although its air-conditioning is a plus, we preferred the natural coolness from the lovely tropical trees that shade the property. The bathroom shower is larger than stall size and nicely tiled.

Since there was just the 2 of us, we did not use the dining room or second bedroom, but rest assured they are both lovely and would be perfect for accommodating a family or another couple. The owners' colorful and interesting Viequenese artwork decorates the house quite tastefully and creates a wonderful island ambiance.

Our favorite spot was the tropical garden in the backyard. 2 or 3 times a day we enjoyed the cool breeze and lovely tropical plants in this peaceful and shady retreat that made every breakfast, afternoon cold drink , and peaceful evening a delight. (tiny white lights winding around the trees at night make it downright magical)

This little slice of paradise also has a great location. In a quiet, safe, and friendly neighborhood, it is only a couple minutes walk to the main restaurants, a bakery, and small grocery store. Yet it is one street back from the main street so you do not hear late night reveling. Of course, you will hear the roosters, chickens, and dogs, but that is part of the island's charm.

Michelle is easy, pleasant, and prompt to work with and always ready to inform and assist. Picking us up at the airport and renting us her Jeep are 2 extras that we greatly appreciated. Although Sun Bay Beach is only a 15 minute walk from the house, you will love having the Jeep to explore the island and other beautiful beaches of Vieeques.

I highly recommend you contact Michelle and rent this property. We are definitely returning.

Owner's Response: Karen and Butch- We are so happy that you enjoyed your time at Casa Esperanza. You were a true pleasure to host and we could not have asked for better guests. It is wonderful to hear that you both enjoyed what we are trying to facilitate at our rental which is a place to relax and truly come in tune with not only the beaches and tourist side of VIeques, but also its casual encounters and natural wonders that can happen right in front of you without even trying. Look forward to hearing from you with your dates for next year. TIl next time, Michelle and Juan

Fabulous Vacation in a fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

I was going with 4 other friends to celebrate my birthday. I had previously visited Vieques but this was the first time to rent a house. When we drove up to the house, we were instantly in love with it. The home has a wonderful exterior and interior with a spectacular gazebo in the back. The gazebo was where we stayed most of the time. Michelle was awesome and was very accommodating without being intrusive. We also rented the car which helped us get around the island. Michelle was kind enough to pick us up and take us to the airport. We explored much of the island getting the scoop from Michelle where the best places to go were. I will definitely return to Vieques and stay with Michelle again!

Great Comfortable House

  • 3 of 5

Casa Esperanza is in a nice area of Esperanza within a only a few blocks to restaurants, bars, and shops. We felt safe walking to the Malecon even later in evenings.

The house is nicely decorated and the longer driveway located off the street is great for safely parking. The lot is very private and has a beautiful shady backyard garden area with newer patio table furniture. The only issues we had with the back yard area were the mosquitoes and grill grate was in bad shape. No hammock was on the property that we saw, but mosquitoes kept us out of the yard unfortunately. Our visit was in rainy season and two of the lots next door on both sides were unoccupied and overgrown which may have contributed to more mosquitoes.

The living room furniture was very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. Could use a pitcher for making tea or drinks. Linens were high quality and in nice clean condition. Mattresses on beds were both comfortable. Main house bathroom was in very nice condition and clean. The only issues we had with the bathroom was the hot water in the shower was only luke warm and no hot water to the sink. The A/C in the bedrooms for sleeping was so nice, along with the ceiling fans and floor fans. We found we used the air less as with adjusted to the warmer climate. The satellite was out completely. Juan and Michelle tried but were unsuccessful in getting another receiver during our visit. We appreciated their effort and understood some things on the island are not easy to get quickly. We had issues with the DVD player or DVDs not working well - kept freezing up. The beach towels, beach chairs and coolers were in very nice condition and clean. These were a great asset for us. I didn't realize the house did not have WiFi, which was something we have unfortunately come to rely on when we travel. We overcame by taking a short trip to the Malecon and used the WiFi at Bellybuttons - had a couple beers. Overall, the house and Michelle and Juan were great and a good value for the price. Once again, we really enjoyed our time on the island (5th visit) and we'll be back on the island again.

Wonderful and relaxing sister's get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Esperanza is an adorable house in a perfect location. The property is clean, comfortable and full of character. It is also equipped with everything you need from cooking items to towels, linens, coolers and beach chairs.

Casa Esperanza is located a few blocks from the Malecon, where you will find a variety of shops, lively waterfront bars (our favorite was Lazy Jacks), and extraordinary restaurants serving a wide variety of authentic dishes.

We rented a jeep and were able to explore most of the beaches the island had to offer. Bio-bay was one of our favorite adventures of the trip. It's definitely a "must-see"!

Michelle was responsive and helpful from the moment we inquired about the property and met us at the house to give us the tour. She was very helpful in “showing us” the must see beaches and landmarks on the island. And, last but not least, we really enjoyed meeting Linda and ChiChi, the neighbor’s sweet dogs who greeted us daily!

My sister and I absolutely loved the island of Vieques and the town of Esperanza. We would definitely visit again! Thank you Michelle for you hospitality and making us feel at home in your home.

Esperanza gem!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best place to stay if your planning to be on Vieques.  The accomidation is bang on.  I had all the comforts of home and Michelle's very thorough area description and review was invaluable for my 3.5 week stay.  I highly recommend cassa Esperanza.  I had beach,  towels,  chairs and cooler that I used.  The house is back off the road and far enough from the main drag that at night you didn't hear the partying yet not a long walk if you wanted to go for a late drink or dinner. As a single female i felt safe and never had a problem walking anytime of the day. 

The gazebo in the back was my afternoon go to place to read and have a drink before supper.  

Watching the wildlife in the yard was plenty entertaining.  Chickens and chicks,  dogs and blue/green humming birds that love the trees in the front and side yards.  Try watering the plants and watch them come out to bathe on the big leaves that catch the water.  Amazing. 

Michelle picked me up from the airport and that was great to be taken right to the house after a long flight. Great customer service. So looking forward to a repeat visit during the winter months. Great job Michelle, Juan and Leonardo!
