About Peggie Stauffer

I fell in love with the island on my first visit. I were hooked ever since! Favorite beach is by far Blue Beach. But every time I snorkel a new underwater landscape becomes my favorite!!

Peggie Stauffer purchased this villa in 2007

Why Peggie Stauffer chose Vieques Island

The house is so comfortable for a great vacation. Almost any amenity you need. The house is close to everything. It is a very walkable area, but there are so many beautiful beaches to see...so a car is a must for at least part of the trip!!

What makes this villa unique

Favorite moment in the morning is watching the wild horses head to the beach from the wrap around windows...favorite moment in the evening is watching the wild horses come back from the beach.

The kitchen is in the front of the house and is open to the dining and living area. It is a great gathering space. The back covered lanai with built in seating is great for afternoon reading and a nap!

All I ever wanted and more

  • 5 of 5
From the moment I walked through the door, I felt welcomed! This house has everything you would want for a visit to Vieques. We rented a car for the week and I was glad I did for a first timer in Vieques. I got to explore the island and came to the realization, there is very little I can't experience on foot! From the house you can walk to the beach, snorkle and stop by the green store on the way home for provisions. The Malecon is a few minutes walk from the house where breakfast, lunch and dinner are at your fingertips. Pickups for the bio bay tours and off island snorkeling commence on the Malecon. Belly Buttons for breakfast became a staple. Peggie the owner and Hector the property manager were there to answer any question about the island we had. I have no need to look any further for a place to stay in Vieques. Peggie's, with the outdoor charcoal grill and beautiful surroundings is superb!

Owner's Response: It is so great to hear from visitors who love the island and truely enjoy my guest house and all its amenities. As this guest says...A car is nice to rent for your first time to Vieques to explore. I suggest renting for at least a few days to explore the island and some of the put of the way beaches; yet, keep in mind that walking will get you feeling part of the island life in no time.

Great vacation

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Vieques Island house. The house was plenty big for us (we were just two people). Despite 4 bedrooms, it's not a big house, but with 2 bathrooms, and the outside patio and front porch, there's plenty of room. The location was nice - it's in a neighborhood in Esperanza, within walking distance of the Malecon and the Green Store (handy for basic groceries) - but far enough away from the strip to be quiet at night. We liked Esperanza much better than Isabel Segunda; it's closer to the best beaches.

The house has pretty much everything you'd want - beach towels, chairs, snorkel gear, etc. and it's very comfortable. It's a bit lived in, but that worked for us, since we didn't want anything fancy. The owner bought a new charcoal grill that we put together, and it worked great.

I recommend having a car. While you can walk to some beaches from the house, it's much easier with a car, and then you can explore the many fabulous beaches in the Refuge and beyond.

The owner was very nice and easy to work with, and the house managers were terrific - they picked us up at the airport, drove us to our rental car and showed us to the house.

I'd recommend this house to anyone. And, if you go out to eat, the Next Course is very good, as is el Quenepo. Duffy's is fine for lunch.

Lovely Relaxing Beach House

  • 5 of 5
My best friends and I stayed here last spring to get away from the east coast cold and we loved it! The house was perfect for us: clean, cute, and well stocked. Joanna and Hector welcomed us upon our arrival and were very nice and helpful! We loved the back patio, where we ate meals, had cocktail hour, played cards, and read. The kitchen was great for all of the cooking we did. The location was perfect for us! We didn't have a car and we were able to walk to restaurants, bars, and beaches from the house. The restaurants and bars close by are affordable and fun. We used a taxi once for our big grocery shopping that lasted our stay. We walked daily to Sun Bay Beach, about a 15 minute walk, which is beautiful. The neighborhood is filled with friendly locals and a few wandering, wild horses. Esperanza is the perfect place to stay for a low-key Caribbean vacation. We absolutely loved it and hope to return soon! Thanks Peggie!

WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This was a terrific home and location. We enjoyed EVERYTHING about the home! The kitchen (where everyone congregates was terrific). We spent many evenings out on the back porch playing games and having cocktail hour. We all certainly wish we were still there! The location is within walking distance of a beautiful beach, town, and grocery store. You must rent a car for the other beautiful sites. Thank you Peggie it was a WONDERFUL stay.

Great place

  • 5 of 5
We liked the property a lot. It has 4 real bedrooms so it can sleep up to 8 people. There are all kinds of supplies that can be used by the renter, masks, fins, snorkels, frisbees, dvds etc. It's in a good location, only 5 or so minutes walk from downtown Esperanza where there are beaches and restaurants. Great place to stay. There were 3 wild horses that hung out near the property that were a treat to see each day. The property was quiet and very safe. 2 thumbs up.

Owner's Response: The wild horses walk to the beach in the morning and back in the evening...well actually they meander. The horses are one if the reasons I designed the kitchen and dining area in the front of the house! The yard is fenced ...so no worries.

Nice house for a family vacation

  • 4 of 5
The house is very nice, well decorated and clean. It's stocked with beach gear and snorkel equip.
The negatives would be that it's a bit cramped inside the house with very little living room space and no communal dining area. There is a nice outside area but the level of Mosquitos stopped us from using it.
We would absolutely recommend renting a car to get around the island. Taxis are easily available but a car would be preferential.

Owner's Response: Mosquitos can be pesky at times. Mosquitos are active after a rain in early morning and in evening. Mosquitos don't like breezes or wind. We have fans installed in the ceiling of the lanai as well as 2 large box fans. When mosquitos are active, these work very well to keep them at bay so that you can enjoy the outside living and dining space as well as the inside living space.
There is no formal dining room in the house. Rather we designed the kitchen/dining areas beautiful counter as a large open area so all can sit and talk or play games or do puzzles. When we remodeled the house we moved the kitchen/dining to the front of the house so that the area is center of activity.
