LA FINCA CARIBE: QUIET RETREAT FOR 2 TO 30 OF YOUR CLOSEST FRIENDS!

Vieques Island Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 6 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 16-22)

Totally off beat -- rented as a whole, la finca caribe's Casa Grande is perfect for large groups of friends, families, business get aways or yoga retreats. The place is huge and rambling, private and quiet.

Lonely Planet says 'la finca caribe personifies Vieques'. We think that it's about staying casual and loving this island for its climate, culture, and amazing natural beauty. The beaches are the best just about anywhere.

Our towels don't match. The rooms have no television. La finca caribe is for people who like to go barefoot and take showers outdoors. We like it simple. All of our rooms have fans, mosquito nets, cotton sheets and a good reading lamp.

La finca caribe is a cluster of handmade wooden houses -- on two of the most beautiful, natural, quiet and private acres on Vieques island. We're up in the hills; our world class beaches are three miles away -- so we are the place to totally get away from it all. No a/c. No phones. Wi-fi is available. But the salt water pool, the breezes, views and mangoes, starfruit, cocos and bananas work great. The coolest place on the coolest island -- with the coolest folks!

We're flexible -- whether you're two people or thirty. You can rent the entire house or any one of the six casa grande rooms. ( see our other listing for rooms or smaller houses)

* * *

La Casa Grande offers large groups and families a whole rustic villa with six bedrooms, each with one or two queen-sized beds and a twin loft. There's a large dining and living area and complete kitchen, all open to the tradewinds and great views.

La Casa Grande has three shared bathrooms, with our beautiful outside hot water showers. The lobby/living area has an eclectic library of books, a stereo, and indoor board games. The wrap-around deck has a gas bbq, porch swings, hammocks, plenty of table space, and star gazing deck above.

Children over five only in casa grande please, unless you're renting out the entire house.

When we aren't running the finca in the winter months, we are small farmers in Washington State; an architect & a sustainability professional. We believe in simple living at home and while traveling. We are always happiest outside -- hiking, sailing, gardening, -- at the finca that can include dancing on the deck after a large group dinner with friends.

The finca is family-owned and operated. In that regard it's really more like our home, our finca we like to share with like minded travelers. We've been lucky enough to have traveled throughout out our lives. We know what we look for, and what we avoid. The finca is built on that: providing a beautiful quiet and natural setting , with good clean, cotton sheets, a good reading light, and as few chemicals or electronics as possible.

When we aren't here, friends help run the place -- and all of us are committed to providing the best 'eco-travel' location on Vieques for you and your family, children, and friends vacation.

Simply put, we love to share our finca and our island's undeveloped and beautiful setting.

We look forward to having you with us!

We have traveled much of the world and never experienced beaches like Vieques has to offer. Once we saw the finca we knew it was our dream literally come true. You'll understand as soon as you get here. Think quiet, slow, beautiful, rustic and natural; an all too rare combination.

if you like to start your day with a run or a good walk -- go for it. We are up in the hills on a small country road with little traffic. A run or walk in either direction is great. You can get to know the 125 species of birds on the island, or one of Vieques's wild horses. At the end of the day, after the beach or exploring the island, you can wash off in the outdoor solar showers, and find a quiet hammock with a book, or meet fellow eco-minded travelers from around the globe.

I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!

I can't wait to go back!

My stay at La Finca was the highlight of my Puerto Rico vacation. The staff was kind and helpful, not to mention generous. Our room was paradise. Mangos fell outside our door, we ate starfruit off of the trees, used the free snorkeling gear, and checked out the recommended local eateries. La Finca is beautiful, and I can't wait to go back!

ISLAND WITHIN AN ISLAND

Very mellow, relaxing sweet spot. Could easily stay here and not leave the compound. At the many, many beaches the snorkeling in the clear, warm water was absolutely great. Want to do it again!

PERFECT FOR THE PURPOSE

  • 5 of 5
La Finca Caribe is rustic and on the funky side, which is exactly what we wanted! That said, we had everything we needed and it was clean and well kept. The hosts were exceptionally accommodating to our group's needs, and helped with every detail regarding transportation, meals, logistics and relaxing. The lodge is well-situated with a gorgeous view of the sea and surrounding area. It is easy to reach and convenient to towns, beaches and sight seeing opportunities. We were welcomed and made to feel right at home, it was easy to do our work and to have fun, have group time and individual time. I hope to come back with my family in the near future.

The back porch has beautiful view of the ocean and rainbows often. This was the great place we stayed on Vieques, Puerto Rico. The innkeepers are welcoming, and the space are rustic with a relaxing salt water pool! So nice to swim in clean water without chlorine.

WE WOULD LIVE AT LA FINCA IF WE COULD!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I cant say enough good things about La Finca...gorgeous, exotic, inviting,relaxing, convenient, self-sustainable, green, magical, paradise!! My boyfriend and I sincerely felt at home here, we were given a key by our gracious hosts Pam and Graham, but did not use it once! Our room was modest yet perfect! We stayed in the big house and were lucky enough to have it all to ourselves for the duration of our 4- night stay. Pam and Graham are so wonderful and very knowledgable of the island. They were always there to help whether it was a question, recommendation, or chopping a coconut with a machete! Which is perfectly delightful blended with a lil rum ;) We would never stay anywhere else and because our experience was so very spectacular, it wont be long before we return to La Finca!!

Full Kitchen: The main house kitchen is a large open kitchen with windows on to the deck for serving, and views. the plates may not match -- but we have enough to serve large groups up to 30 easily. additionally each of the smaller units have their won fully equipped kitchen. Cooking Utensils Provided: Our plates are mismatched, and you may end up drinking your rum punch out of a beer stein-- but our main house has everything you need in the kitchen; two fridges, two stoves, one oven, two barbeques and the best views and breezes around. someof nyc's finest restaurateurs claim ours as their favorite place to cook! Deck/Patio: Our decks-- are a big part of what make the finca special. each house has its own, with plenty of swinging benches and balconies, for hanging out in -- and watching the stars. WiFi (Wireless Internet): this sort of comes and goes -- best to bring a smartphone with you. sorry. We share our misc beach toys, snorkle gear, coolers, beach towels.
