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.

About Renee Chandler

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

Why Renee Chandler chose Isabel Segunda

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

What a place, what a view...

  • 5 of 5

Two couples stayed in Colina de Brisas and had a very good time. It has everything you need, even if you have small children. It would have been a little hard to fine (street names are a formality not used a lot in Vieques) were it not for the excellent directions supplied with the checkin instructions. Bedrooms are A/C if you want, but the home is cooled quite nicely by the Caribbean. Would stay there again without reservation (pun intended). It's remote while being close enough to everything to feel like you are part of the island. Fantastic property.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

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.

AMAZING for families

  • 5 of 5

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!

Colina de Brisas is located on the quiet island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. The house sits on a hill overlooking the Fort of Vieques and the town of Isabel Segunda in a quiet residential neighborhood with panoramic views of the Caribbean Ocean and Puerto Rico.

Watch the sun melt into the ocean, admire the Fort of Vieques lit up at night, feel the tropical breezes cooling your skin, and listen to the 'co-qui' frogs sing - all from the privacy of your verandah.

Other Activities: Hiking, bio bay, enjoying the virtually empty beaches...
