The property sits on almost an acre of land with plenty of tropical fruits, trees and plants. There is a flat area on the East side of the property where you will find aloe plants, coconut, calabash (gourd) and grapefruit trees. On the West side of the property you will find more tropical plants, mango trees, pineapple plants and hidden away hammocks for relaxing in the shade. Feel free to pick some mangoes or pineapples to go with your meal or just relax in one of the hammocks.
The living room has a TV with a DVD/VCR player. There is a library of movies for you to choose from as well as books and games to enjoy when you return in the evening.
Each room in the house has a ceiling fan to take full advantage of the tropical hillside breezes.
Colina de Brisas has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths and sleeps up to 6 people. The master bedroom has a king size bed and full private bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the third bedroom has both a full size and twin bed.
There is a large kitchen fully equipped with a stove and range, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and needed kitchenware. Make yourself at home and try your hand at cooking a real Puerto Rican dinner from one of the cookbooks.
Come and enjoy the verandah, especially in the evenings, and let the trade winds carry away all your worries. Tables and seating allow you to sit and enjoy the view of the fort at night or watch the late ferry arrive from Puerto Rico. Enjoy a meal on the verandah or on the patio while you barbeque your meal. Listen to all of the nightlife and see if you can hear the “co-qui” frogs.
We vacationed on Vieques in 2004 and fell in love with the laid back, simple island that is Vieques. The virtually empty, white sand beaches combined with the undeveloped island (no traffic lights or WalMart!) made us dream of owning a second home here. Our dream became a reality the very next year and we have vacationed here every year since! We are blessed to have a little piece of this paradise.
Renee Chandler purchased this house in 2005
We feel in love with the views - while it's not close to the ocean, there is very limited true oceanfront property available, we preferred the quiet hillside location which provides panoramic ocean views, cooling tropical breezes and beautiful sunsets.
From our guestbook at the house:
"Hello. Thank you so much for the option of staying at this cozy, yummy house! We loved the veranda and open areas. It is a great location and we enjoyed our stay immensely! The view is wonderful. And it is a terrific setup if you have a little one! It made the trip even better."
We had a wonderful time at Colina de Brisas - one of the best vacation rental home I've stayed in. The furnishings are lovely, the kitchen is well-equipped, and the views are amazing. I can't imagine another way of vacationing on Vieques - I hope to be back soon.
We greatly enjoyed our stay Colina de Brisas on Vieques. The house was well-equipped, clean and comfortable. It was quite convenient and despite being located in a quiet, private setting, Isabel II could be reached in 5 minutes by car. Since there were only two of us, we only used the master bedroom. However, the other two bedrooms and second bath could easily enable 3 couples or an expanded family to stay without feeling cramped. The large balcony was lovely and enabled us to see surrounding trees with several of the largest iguana we have ever seen. The manager of the property, Jared, was extremely helpful in giving us suggestions for beaches and restaurants. Any text or call to Jared was returned within 15 minutes. The car rented with the house has 4 wheel drive and is a very convenient addition. Jared picked us up and dropped us off with the car at the Vieques airport. Roads in Vieques were surprisingly well-maintained for a small Caribbean island. The only need for 4 wheel drive is to reach some of the most secluded beaches such as Green Beach.
From the moment we contacted the property owner, the follow up, meeting the property manager, arrival coordination, sanitation of the premises, availability of needed supplies to ensure we enjoyed the island stay, location and beautiful accommodations, to the departure arrangement and after stay follow up. OUTSTANDING!!!
We were a family of 7 (adults) and from the moment we walked in to Colina de Brisas we were comfortable and relaxed. It is a lovely, clean, spacious home with breezes and lots of bird and frog noises.
My family of 5 (3 kids ages 7, 9, and 11) and parents stayed at this house for spring break in 2014. We had an amazing time. The owner and property managers were AMAZING! The owner provided so much valuable information prior to and during our stay and the house managers were so accommodating. I can't put into words how great our stay was....... Highly recommend this house. Can't wait to come back!
We are a family of 4, which includes to adlut kids. It was pleasant superise to find out that the picture's is what we were hopeing for. The house is great, well maintained, the beadrooms are big & comfortable. The only draw backs at the place was that there is no TV reception, but they have plenty DVD & games after you get back from your day's activities. If your not use to the sound of wildlife & night it could bother you, but we slpet like new borns. We felt very secure alarm system. We didn't have a car for the first two days, but that was ok because we were within walking distance (10mins) of Isabel II. Our first night we eat at Richard's cafe good food, great rum punch. For dinner a must is Trade Winds, breakfast Roy's Cafe & Internet, lunch Bananas & Williams Pizza's. If you want to hang out at a bar for small talk with the locals & tourtist Al's Mar Azul is the place to be. The people are friendly & full of lots of info on where to go & what to see. You do need a taxit or car to get to the beaches. Sun Bay was fun but crowed the locals said it's the most people they seen in a long time, Red Beach is nicer, but Blue Beach was the place to be, only about 50 people there. they have Gazbo's like Sun Bay, but unlike Sun Bay no bathroom's. But don't let that stop you it's by far the best beach to go too. The caretakers at the rental Patirck & Pat are great, always available to reach by phone & very helpful. From what I've heard from other renters else where car rentals were very high, but we got a great deal from Patrick far better then going thru a car rental place. Make friends with the taxi driver who pick you up from the airport, they will be available to take back when time to leave & we took the taxi from Luis Muniz airport to Fajardo. We took the ferry to Vieques which we recommend. I would also like to thank the owner Renee' Chandler she was also a phone call away. Your place is beautful. Thanks again.
