Overview

Vieques Island House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms + children's sleeping area, 3 baths (sleeps up to 14)

Recently renovated, Las Terrazas is a wonderful hideaway compound nestled high on the Los Chivos ridge in Vieques. Featuring incredible views, Las Terrazas is centally located, offering easy access to Esperanza, Isabel II and the Navy beaches, yet it enjoys the most private setting Vieques has to offer. The lush tropical gardens and fruit trees that fill this 1.5 acre estate are further graced by beautiful Spanish fountains and a large pool with ocean views. Las Terrazas offers two independent units, each with two bedrooms and one bath, plus a private casita, making it one of the most versatile homes to rent on Vieques. Perfect for a large family, a group of friends, two families traveling together, or a couple looking for a private and romantic getaway, both the upstairs and downstairs units have their own fully equipped kitchens, bathrooms and dining terraces. The casita offers flexibility for additional friends or family members.

The Terraces: The terraces which give Las Terrazas its name are a favorite gathering spot for enjoying the amazing view. Dining al fresco will be another highlight of your stay at Las Terrazas. Have your morning coffee watching the sun rise from one terrace, enjoy lunch on another, sip afternoon cocktails on yet a third as you watch the sun set, and then serve dinner under the gazebo by the pool.

The Gardens: Unlike many of the newer homes on the island, Las Terrazas enjoys the privacy offered by mature gardens and trees that have been lovingly cultivated and expanded through years of care. Sitting by the pool, guests are secluded in a private world, surrounded by tropical flowers and vegetation. As you enjoy the beautiful ocean view and watch the hummingbirds flit from flower to flower, it is hard to remember that you are actually only a short drive from the grocery store, town and beaches. However, when picking a lime from the lime tree in the courtyard for your cocktail or an avocado from a tree by the pool for a snack, it may be hard to force yourself to leave the private, tropical haven that Las Terrazas offers those wanting 'to get away from it all.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is perfect…it was even better than the pictures. We all felt like Kennedy's in a compound. Private, secluded, great breeze, relaxing and refreshing…

Amazing stay, wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Las Terrazas was truly amazing! This was our third time going to Vieques and we have stayed at really beautiful properties; but this was our favorite of all! The house is amazing, modern and well equipped. The views from each one of the balconies were breath taking. Our stay was definitely too short and leaving the house was not easy ;)

The house is like a retreat, yet it has everything you need to have a great time! The pictures on the website don't make justice. Karen was also very nice and helpful and I loved her sense of humor. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking to stay in Vieques!

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us! We had beautiful weather (late March 2015) and a wonderful family vacation. We were a group of two families renting the main house and the casita…four adults, three high school students and two college students. This estate is perfect for families or groups traveling together. There are plenty of common areas and the privacy of your own, well equipped and tastefully decorated unit. The covered outdoor dining area will accommodate everyone and the covered lounge area adjacent to the pool is outstanding after a long day at the beach! The views from the second floor terraces are stunning!

This was our second trip to Vieques and our first time at Las Terrazas. Karen, the house manager, was so hospitable and helpful. She even went to the grocery prior to our arrival for some start up provisions! The beach bags, chairs and towels made everything so simple. Las Terrazas is centrally located high on the ridge between the two towns and five minutes to the Navy beaches entrance. The breezes and views are the best on this part of the island. We will be back!

A Paradise Palace!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of repeat visitors to Vieques, it is truly one of our favorite places in the world. Las Terrazas was the best place we've stayed on the island. Our group included a total of 5 married couples and we were perfectly comfortable with lots of places to relax and have privacy, or hang out together as a group. We cooked dinner in the beautiful kitchen and used the BBQ grill, and one of our favorite places was sitting around the big table outside eating meals and drinking pina coladas! The ice machine was such a nice treat. We set up our hammocks under the canopy by the pool and settled in to the island life. Vieques doesn't get any better than this! The beds were very comfortable, the pool and gardens were fantastic, and the view was just perfect! We loved falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of Vieques, the coqui frogs are so magical. The location was great for us, as we like to spend our days exploring all of the beaches on the island. It was and easy drive to Esperanza and Isabel for dinner or groceries. We will be back!!!

Relaxing, Peaceful and Private!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Las Terrazas was wonderful. The house was nicely decorated, very spacious, extremely clean, and well maintained. The air conditioning worked great in the bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped and we especially enjoyed the ice machine! Very nice beach chairs, coolers and beach towels were provided.

Privacy is always important to us…and both the home and the pool area were very private. The gated driveway, gardens and entry courtyard were great! The house was conveniently located, with a just quick drive to the beaches, restaurants, and grocery store. We absolutely loved the quiet, less crowded beaches. One afternoon, we had an entire beach to ourselves for at least two hours.

Lyle, the owner, was very kind, accommodating and quick to reply to all of my emails. Karen, the property manager, was very helpful and met us at Maritza's Car Rental. She responded to all my text messages quickly and was always pleasant and eager to assist us.

Our trip to Vieques was peaceful, relaxing and everything went smoothly, just as planned…except purchasing tickets for the ferry. If you are seeking relaxation, definitely avoid the ferry lines and chaos at the ferry terminal.

We would highly recommend Las Terrazas if you are planning a trip to Vieques.

Car: recommended

Relaxing by the large pool listening to the fountains gurgle as you try to count the numerous hummingbirds flitting in and out of the surrounding flowers will be a highlight of your stay at Las Terrazas. Yet do force yourself to leave, as this home is a short drive from some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Most beaches are all-but-deserted, and no beach in Vieques is ever crowded. Also not to be missed is a visit to the other-worldly Bio-Bay and excursions into Isabel Segundo and Esperanza for wonderful restaurants. Everything is within a very short drive from the house, unless the island's ubiquitous wild horses slow your progress along the way!

Other Activities: world famous bio-bay, great restaurants

Notes:
Casita-- In addition to the main house, we also offer for rent the casita located on the Las Terrazas property. This casita is only available to those renting the main house, and it will not be rented separately. Perfect for larger groups, or for those who seek a separate space for a nanny accompanying a family, teenage/college age children, or an “in-law suite”, this charming casita consists of a queen size bed, sitting area (with a loveseat that folds out to offer an additional small bed), kitchen, and full bathroom.
