Las Terrazas-Vieques' Most Private Hideaway

Overview

About the property

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…

Beautiful, Relaxing and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time the 8 of us had in Vieques to celebrate my 60th! We brought 5 kids and spouses plus my father. The house was very spacious- we ended up having an extra room! The owner was great in answering all of my many questions before we arrived, giving me tips on transportation to the island, car rental places, beaches, restaurants and Bio Bay tours. Once there, Karen, the oversee-er was fantastic. We loved the island and once we realized it was very easy to get places ( anywhere in 15 minutes) we did great beach exploring and eating! It was always so nice to do a morning swim and then come back to the pool. Each kitchen was well stocked but we ate all together using the lower level one. The two levels are reachable only through the outside which was fine and ave my kids privacy. My husband and I ended up staying in the carriage house, giving up the great views to the kids but it was nice to have our own little place. Although right off the street it was very quiet- virtually no traffic (well virtually no traffic anywhere on the island- no traffic lights!). Read about VIeques and if it is your thing- I recommend this house highly!

Exceptional home, great location, beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Las Terrazas was a fabulous base for our Vieques adventures this year. Well appointed, comfortable, spacious, and conveniently located to everything. The house and grounds are gorgeous and super flexible, with lots of options for groups of all sizes (2-12?) relaxing or socializing in both sun and shade. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Karen, the house manager, and her team were responsive, accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable. Thanks!

Incredibly beautiful, amazing, relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We are regular travelers to Vieques, familiar with the island. For this trip, we needed extra space to be able to stay with our extended family. Las Terrazas was more than we could have asked for -- perfect setup; beautiful; quiet; private, yet also convenient location; well maintained and furnished; wonderful pool, landscaping, and outside spaces. The property manager is also wonderful. We were grateful to have found this place during the busy holiday period, and definitely recommend it. If the need arises again, we would certainly love to stay at Las Terrazas again.

Great Family Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 shared this great house with another family of 4 over Christmas. The house is set up perfectly for two families to share. The downstairs kitchen was the most well-equipped kitchen of any rental we have ever seen. Blenders et for all your eating and drinking by the beautiful pool. If it weren't for the many spectacular beaches on the island, we might never have left the property! Although there is air-conditioning, we left our windows open to enjoy the night air - I was happy to have some earplugs however, as the night sounds of the rainforest can get pretty loud sometimes! The property manager, Karen, provided great information on the area and connected us with a wonderful caterer , Beverly Davenport, for our Christmas meal. I highly recommend her! Go to Vieques for the beaches, the snorkeling, the BioBay and the slow pace. Don't go if you want a lot of night life, shopping or coffee shops!

Peaceful getaway in paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a long weekend at Las Terrazas and absolutely cannot wait to go back!! From the second we got there we felt like we had been transported to a whole different world – the house is very nice with two great kitchens, a beautiful pool including lounge chairs sitting in the water, and as the name suggests, several "terrazas" or terraces. We spent most evenings having mojitos on the porch and watching the sunset – the house is very private and quiet, so we felt very comfortable and easily slipped into vacation mode. Despite the peaceful feel, the house is centrally located within Vieques and easy driving distance from grocery stores, top-class restaurants, stunning natural beaches, and watersports. You can't have it any better – we can't wait to go back, and highly recommend it for couples, families, or groups of friends.

Map

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
