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!

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!

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.

Authentic Vieques Experience - Fabulous!

It's difficult to express just how much we enjoyed our stay at Casa de Pepito. The home is by far the nicest and most updated home we have stayed in, from the spacious bedrooms and private baths, to the roomy, well-equipped kitchen, not to mention the wrap-around porch where we enjoyed our morning coffee and relaxing dinners while soaking up the ambience of the locals and the surrounding neighborhood. The house is located on the back of a deep lot and even though there are houses all around, there is a feeling of seclusion. There are some great fruit trees on the property - we even enjoyed a fruit salad one morning of mangoes and starfruit picked from trees in the front yard!
While it took us a morning or two to get used to the neighborhood roosters, we thoroughly enjoyed soaking up the ambience and culture of the Esperanza neighborhood, and were delighted to find a grocery store and wonderful bakery just a block away. The locals are friendly and even if unable to speak English, I was always greeted with a smile and a hearty "buenos dios!"
And of course, the beautiful beaches and great snorkerling are the icing on the cake. The most difficult decision we had each morning was trying to decide which beach we wanted to go to that day.
If you're wanting an authentic Viequense experience and are looking for a relaxing vacation in a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood, Casa de Pepito is the answer.

Amazing home!

Admittedly, I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to accommodations; so, take it from me that Casa de Pepito is a hidden gem in this island paradise! It's beautifully renovated and well appointed, right down to the modern, European-syle kitchen and luxe mattresses and quality linens. It's bright, light and airy, as it's positioned to take advantage of the tradewinds. For sleeping, the A/C units in the bedrooms keep you extra cool for a good night's sleep.

The home is located in desirable Esperanza, an authentic Viequen neighborhood just blocks from the malecon with restaurants, bars, shops and water sport operators. The neighbors are friendly and hospitable. (They even offered us a huge, freshly caught lobster our first day here, which we promptly prepared and dipped in copious amounts of butter).

The home's owners, Octavian and Catherine, are a pleasure, and have done a tremendous job of making Casa de Pepito into an island oasis. We will be back!

P.S. I can't help but comment on an earlier review concerning the "authenticity" of the neighborhood. Vieques is not Disney's scrubbed down and perfectly polished version of a Caribbean island. It is a real and still-somewhat-raw island, with a laid-back, sleepy vibe, friendly people, and colorful roosters and wild horses roaming the neighborhoods as they have for generations. That is what makes Vieques special.

A short walk to the waterfront, restaurants, bars, shops, small grocery and bakery, Casa de Pepito is located in a safe, friendly neighborhood in the small Caribbean village of Esperanza. Walk to nearby Sun Bay beach. Take a night tour of the world's most pristine Bioluminescent Bay. The more adventurous will want a rental car in order to explore the spectacular beauty of Vieques' many unspoiled beaches, as well as art galleries, the fort and museum overlooking Isabel Segunda, the jungle-covered sugar mill ruins of Playa Grande, and the endless spectacular 360 degree water views from numerous high points along the middle of the island.
