AMAZING VIEW WITH A PERFECT LOCATION
Our family recently visited Vieques for a week. We have a fifteen year old daughter and she LOVED the loft upstairs. It was the perfect place to unwind and decompress from our busy lives. The Isola House is situated beautifully on the beach with the most spectacular view. Helen, our realtor, was such a great host and told us the best places to go for wine, fresh produce, car services, rentals, etc. The house is pretty cool for the most part although the kitchen area gets a little warm. We found both bedrooms to be very comfortable. Plus, there is typically such a nice breeze during the time you're home anyways that the minimal warmth wasn't an issue for us---you really only notice it when you're packing up for the next adventure anyways. The beach is swimmable but we enjoyed the beaches that were a 15 minute drive the best. I highly recommend going to the Fish Market near the Ferry and getting fresh fish to cook at home. The Farmers' Market is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (Helen can direct you better) and they have really fresh veggies and fruits. Sol Food Truck is by far the best food on the island and they are open Thursday-Sunday from 11am until the food runs out---again ask Helen for location. If you're a coffee snob, like me then bring your favorite ground beans. There is a coffee maker in the house but the coffee on the island isn't the best. The local people are some of the nicest people you'll meet and you will instantly fall in love with the island. It's a slower paced way of life so be sure to be understanding of this and enjoy yourself. The house had everything we needed---a blender for our frozen drinks, pots & pans to cook our fish & veggies in, washer/dryer for those beach towels, you name it. I really don't think you could find a better house on the island for the view, location into town (Mar Azul has killer pina coladas--near the ferry) and a short drive into Esperanza and the other beaches. Definitely contact Vieques Paddleboarding for paddleboarding and snorkeling--our favorite thing we did the entire trip. Also, be sure you take advantage of exploring the island. It truly is an amazing place with wild horses everywhere. We will definitely make this an annual family trip and hope to get our friends there soon too!
