Overview

Vieques Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 2 (sleeps 4 with futon)

A Caribbean hilltop villa, 'Casa Dos Cuervos', offers spectacular ocean and island views, cooled by constant Trade Winds. Secluded in a 5 acre lush tropical setting, we are the last house on the last road overlooking the west end wild life preserve. The casa is ideal for one couple. The main house is large, as is the bedroom which is connected to the main house by the roofline. The grounds are beautiful with gardens and palm groves.

The setting is very private and romantic, with large patios and a 10' x 40' lap lane pool. The luxury one bedroom, two bath home has a full kitchen with microwave and dishwasher, Scandinavian Professional cookware, washer and dryer, a living room with a queen size futon (for an extra person), and a dining room. The bedroom is furnished with all amenities, a plush pillow top queen size mattress and 1,000 count cotton sheets.

Handicap access is good.

Great sunrises and sunsets daily! And you may find a little magic on the hill.

Greeting at the airport: We have a property manager who will greet you at the airport, escort you to the casa, and check you out when departing. We believe you'll find her very friendly and helpful.

Beyond Belief

  • 5 of 5
After several years of separate vacations, and on our honeymoon no less, my fella and I wanted nothing more than a gorgeous location to hunker down for a week & cook, sun bathe, read & wander in to a town once in awhile. The Casa provided the ultimate version of our vacation vision. It's an adventurous ride to the property (yes, you most decidedly need to rent a jeep) and the views once you get to the top of the hill are so worth it. No one believes the pictures are real. The yard is perfect, and filled with creative landscaping and a huge variety of native plants. The house is a unique structure with a gigantic open floor plan, big beautiful kitchen and a separate bedroom full of windows and local art. Unless we were away, the doors and windows were always open, making the song of the coqui frogs or the swishing of palm fronds our constant mood-enhancing soundtrack. The pool is perfect for actual lap-swimming or lounging with a tropical drink.

Colleen, the caretaker, is a delight. She's easy to communicate with, provided tons of useful information about the island and made herself available during daylight hours. Ben also called to check on us, which was kind!

If you want peaceful luxury in a perfect climate, this is your place. You're just a bumpy (fun!) 10 minute ride from Esperanza and a little more than that to the island's myriad beaches and activities. Honestly, though, once you've got your groceries purchased, you won't want to leave.

Thank you Ben! Thank you Colleen! We will be singing your praises to other travelers and hope to return someday!

Remember waking up on Christmas morning to find the presents you wanted waiting for you? You were pretty sure you knew what you were getting or hoping to get and you were so happy you couldn't contain the joy. That's what it feels like to drive up to this place. Seriously, how many adults get goose bumps about a place they have already seen photos of and researched diligently on-line? You know what you rented so why do you feel like a kid laughing at how great it really is? We just kept laughing and smiling the whole time.

Everything that previous reviewers have said is true about the responsiveness of the owner, the helpfulness of the property manager Colleen, the conditions of the property, the grounds, the view and the amenities of the villa.
What is hard to put into words is the appreciation you have for the vision of what has been created here and a sense of gratitude that you have an opportunity to stay. It’s personal and private. You have a sense of wonder that a place like this exists and the person who owns it is willing to share it with you. Every direction your eyes can look has been carefully planned and tastefully done.

One caveat, the road leading to the villa is not for timid drivers. You should be comfortable driving a 4WD in off road conditions. To be fair, it rained while we were visiting so the conditions may have been rougher than usual. We liked the added adventure of driving steep inclines then covering the backside of the hills that had deep ruts and holes. The first section has pavement, then it turns to dirt and has some more pavement strips later on, then dirt again. Hey, that’s how you get all that privacy! We had a Jeep Wrangler and had to drive carefully. I wouldn’t let that stop you from visiting but you should know to expect that and get a 4WD.

I already want to go back. I know what I want for Christmas, my own Casa Dos Cuervos.

Private, serene, restoring.

  • 5 of 5
This was possibly one of the most peaceful & relaxing vacations we've had. It isn't just the beautiful simplicity of the casa; the remote hilltop setting, the rustling of the palm grove in the steady breeze, & the unobstructed view for miles all combine to absorb the stress from you & put you in a contemplative mood. Colleen, the house manager, met us at the airport so we could follow her to the house. She then gave us a brief but thorough primer on how the house works & how to get around Vieques before giving us her cell phone & leaving us to decompress. Ben, the homeowner, was responsive to my inquiries & was a pleasure to speak with by phone. He even called the house on our second day just to make sure we were happy or see if we needed anything. I felt comfortable that I could call either one if we needed anything at all; we didn't. The house & grounds, like Vieques, are unfussy, refreshing, & tranquil; luxurious in its solitude. Thank you Ben, for the privilege of staying in your special home.

The views at night are absolutely incredible! A must see!

Stay as long as you can.

  • 5 of 5
The Casa provided the perfect setting for our recent trip to Vieques. The house is spectacular in every way: the views, the amenities, the wildlife. Ben (the owner) and Colleen (the house manager) were amazing to work with and provided every detail we needed to have the best week. Ever.

If you dig having a front row seat to the best star-gazing on the island, enjoy being serenaded by birds at night, and can wrap your mind around having a dance party pool-side with blended drinks (made with rum, coco-lopez and fresh fruit off the trees) then this is the place for you.

Our only regret about our stay at Casa Dos Cuervos is that one week wasn't long enough. Our advice? Stay as long as you can. Seriously.

"MAGICAL" House on the Hill

"MAGICAL" House on the Hill
  • 5 of 5
What can I say about this magical retreat that hasn't already been said- My husband and I decided to return back to the island of Vieques after having been married here in October of 2010. After researching lots of homes on the island I came across Casa Dos Cuervos and decided to take a chance on it...and we were so glad we did! The house is even more breathtaking in person then the pictures could ever show. It is completely secluded on a hilltop with all the privacy you could ever ask for. We absolutely loved the open doors throughout and couldn't believe how incredible the grounds were and the amazing views. We took advantage of the fully functional kitchen and enjoyed being able to use the grill on several occasions. The house has everything you could ask for- stocked kitchen, books to read, ipod players, beach towels/chairs/umbrellas, and the list goes on...

Colleen was a great resource whenever I had a question and was available anytime we needed her. Ben was even nice enough to call and check up on us to make sure we were having a great time and enjoying the house.

We can't wait to return to this little piece of heaven on earth!

Map

Car: recommended

Vieques Island is about 7 miles off the east coast of Puerto Rico. You can get to the island by plane or ferry. The casa is situated in the west end hills, overlooking the west end wild life preserve. The towns, Esperanza and Isabel Segunda are about 5 minutes and 10 minutes away, respectively. And the beaches are between 5 and 20 minutes away, with good snorkeling and swimming. It's a small island.

You'll find unspoiled beaches, a bioluminescent bay, wild Paso Fino horses, and grazing Brahman cattle.
