Overview

Vieques Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy your morning coffee or dinner al fresco on the spacious wrap-around porches of this light and breezy, fully-renovated house close to the Malecon in Esperanza. Featuring a modern, fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances, a gas stove, dishwasher, eat-in bar, and high ceilings with fans in every room, Casa de Pepito was designed to take full advantage of the prevailing breezes to cool the house. Sleep soundly in either the Coqui room with king bed, dressing room and private bath, or the Tortuga room's queen bed with private bath, all furnished with pure cotton bedding and thick cotton towels. While the trade winds keep the house cool on most days, the bedrooms are air-conditioned for sleeping comfort on warmer nights. Numerous fine restaurants, shops, bars and night life, a small grocery and local bakery, as well as water sport rentals and world famous Sun Bay Beach are just a short walk away.

Casa de Pepito is equipped with beach chairs and towels, beach toys and snorkel equipment; books, games, puzzles, a small DVD collection, a flat screen TV with DirectTV service, WiFi/Internet, and a CD player with a collection of CDs. Fresh catch of the day is available from Antonio, the fisherman next door.

Excellent stay - would definitely come back to Casa de Pepito!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Vieques and Casa de Pepito was the perfect choice for our little family (2 adults, 1 10-year-old girl). The house itself had everything we needed, was clean, comfortable, and well maintained, and the location was great...walking distance to all the restaurants and Esperanza beaches, and short Jeep rides to all the other beaches and sights on the island. Octavian and Catherine were both friendly and accommodating as we were planning our trip, and Barbara the caretaker picked us up at the airport and drove us back when it was time to go home, and gave us all kinds of helpful tips about navigating the island. Would definitely stay here again.

We loved our stay at Casa de Pepito!

We loved our stay at Casa de Pepito! The house was perfectly appointed and exceptionally clean. It has the perfect location- walking distance to everything in Esparanza and a short drive to our favorite beaches.The house manager was very friendly and helpful. I've recommended Vieques and this property to all of my friends! Thank you, Catherine, for making this such a wonderful place to stay. We'll be back!

Great stay for a fair price.

  • 4 of 5

The house was fantastic and the owners were wonderful to work with. Very close walking distance to Main Street in Esperanza. I would definitely recommend having a car no matter where you stay on Vieques. That is the best thing to do - go exploring - and CASA de Pepito is the perfect home base. Much better to stay in Esperanza vs. Isabel II. AC in bedrooms is key and everything inside is nicely updated and well kept.

Great stay! Memorable!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us, 2 couples stayed here for 10 days and loved it. It was a perfect layout to share. Walked to the Malecon every day. Talked with the neighbors who were very nice. It was fun living in the heart of the neighborhood, along with neighborhood noises. The house was impeccably clean and the a/c in the bedrooms made for a comfortable night's sleep. Very well equipped. We loved bbqing on the weber. It's been almost 3 months since we've been there and we still often think about and talk about our trip with fond memories. We left a piece of our heart there. Thanks Catherine and Octo. You were great to rent from -Joe, Lori, Doug & Janie

LOVED staying here!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with another couple, stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it! The house is situated on a very large lot with great neighbors on either side. The house and grounds are very well maintained! We saw iguanas roaming the property, ate some great mangos from the mango trees out front, and watched horses walk down the road every day! Once we arrived in Vieques, we called Letty (the house manager), who was absolutely wonderful! She gave us tips on things to do and places to see. She told us several times to call her with any questions or concerns. There are A/C units in the bedrooms, which were great to have, but honestly, the breezes and fans throughout the house provided more than enough cool air to keep us comfortable even in the hottest parts of the day. There are two grocery stores that are a stones throw away from the house, and the Malecon and Esperanza Beach are about a 5 minute walk. We loved taking advantage of all the extras the house has to offer... beach towels, snorkel gear, beach chairs, coolers, and so much more. The street is quiet and the beds are amazing! We always got a great night's sleep! There is a softball field across from the house where we watched some local kids playing softball one night, which was really fun! You can't really go wrong with this house and I would highly recommend it! Octavian was super easy to work with and that made our trip so much better! Will definitely be back!

Amazing to say the least!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this house gorgeous, have the most comfy beds of any vacation rental in the world, and equipped with everything you could possibly need, it is also in an ideal location. The store, bakery, restaurants, bars, etc are all within a couple of blocks walking distance. It is super easy to access main roads with your car as well. The next door neighbor (Antonio) is a fisherman and came home one day from work with TWO 15 lb tuna for us!!!!! They were about an hour out of the sea and we put them right on the grill and made mango salsa from the mango tree in the yard. YUM!!!! The neighborhood is very quaint and everyone is wonderful. There is a little baseball field across the street, so you can catch a local little league game if you like. We went during the rainy season (it rained once on a week) but it did have the mosquitoes out, so be sure to pack some repellent if traveling this time of year.
