CASA DOS CUERVOS - HILLTOP VILLA, SPECTACULAR OCEAN AND ISLAND VIEWS

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.

Private, serene, restoring.

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.

Awesome property that offers the utmost in privacy

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Casa for a week. We loved the house, the pool, the privacy and everything this property offered. Colleen the house manager is phenomenal! She was very helpful with any of our questions. If your looking for great views, exceptional accommodations and awesome privacy this is the place for you. We hope to return again sometime soon! 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!

Perfect Place, Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just got back from our best and most relaxing vacation ever! This was our second trip to Vieques and our first stay at Casa Dos Cuervos. It was the most perfect place we could have stayed. It far exceeded our high expectations. Everything in this listing is even better than described and it is even more beautiful in real life than in the pictures.

The home was in wonderful condition, carefully maintained, and spotlessly clean. Both the owner and on-island property manager were very responsive to all of our inquiries. The property manager gathered our arrival information and even made sure the rental car company had our car waiting for us at the airport. From there, we went straight to the ultra-private casa where she reviewed everything we needed to know and left us multiple ways to contact her should we need anything.

After the wonderful welcome, everything was pure bliss. The layout and location of the property provided excellent privacy and the feeling of seclusion yet was only 10-15 minutes from many wonderful restaurants, grocery store, and is centrally located with respect to the variety of wonderful beaches all over the island.

The views of the sunrise over the Caribbean from bed were amazing! At night, relax on the veranda or by the pool as the sun disappears over mainland Puerto Rico. The location of the home on the top of the hill provides the ultimate in views, cooling breezes, and great 360 degree star-gazing.

We can’t wait to go back!

beautiful private house

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rented Ben's house for a week as part of our honeymoon. The house and grounds are beautiful and peaceful. You'll have complete privacy and there are beautiful views everywhere you look. Colleen, the property manager, will meet you at the airport, help you get your rental car, with you drive you to the house and get you set up.

If you've never been to Vieques, the island is beautiful and people are friendly. Most of the restaurants were subpar and overpriced compared to what we are used to and we had a much more enjoyable time preparing our meals at the house and enjoying our time away from everyone else.

There is excellent cell phone reception and wireless internet. There is (thankfully) no television in the house. There's also no air conditioning, but there was always a nice breeze blowing through the house. The pool does not have chlorine in it which makes swimming a MUCH more enjoyable experience.

Ben, the owner, is very pleasant and professional and Colleen, the house manager, will give you whatever tips you need to get around Vieques.

This house is the most relaxing and peaceful place we have ever stayed and I think you'd have a difficult time finding a better place on the island to enjoy yourself and get away.

And the beaches are between 5 and 20 minutes away, with good snorkeling and swimming. It's a small island.
