Casa de la Rusa was a great "home" to begin our visit

on Vieques. It is beautifully furnished, with

comfortable beds and a well-equipped kitchen. There

were 6 of us and we had lots of room to relax. We

enjoyed the porch and ate most of our meals there.

We were glad that the caretaker met us at the airport,

as it is a little tricky to find.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house. Very clean. Freddy was very friendly and nice. Slight moldy smell, especially in the front bedroom. Neighborhood was ok - as first time visitors, I wish we were a little closer to the beach or in Esperanza. It was nice to have ac and a big kitchen.

3 days in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really perfect stay in the villa because of the location and amenities. Our property Manager Freddy was there if needed and gave us fully support. We highly recommend to anybody who wants to have nice villa with well maintained and still close to the town.

We enjoyed our time here. There was ample space for everyone and the views were beautiful. Everything we needed was there and I loved seeing the chickens, baby chicks, roosters and horses around. I couldn't ask for a better place. Freddy was a delight, very helpful. I would stay here again if I ever go to Vieques again.

Beautiful casita

  • 5 of 5

My friend and our sons stayed here for four nights. Freddy was awesome! He met us and led the way to our rental. Later during our stay Freddy came quickly and fixed a small electrical problem. He also had great suggestions for activities. We suggest renting a scooter to explore the island (not to replace the necessary jeep) the price is reasonable $50 a day. Of course the beaches are a must and the bioluminescent bay is awesome. We recommend coqui tours. Rebecca is a wonderful guide. The little bakeries are great for ordering custom sandwiches for picnics.

Great Family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Casa de la Rusa is a great home for the perfect vacation on Vieques. Great neighborhood, loved the horses trotting up the hill. Plenty of space for 4 adults. Renting a car is a must! Freddy was a great help as we had airline issues getting there, he graciously met us at the last ferry coming to island.

We recommend this house to anyone traveling to the paradise of Vieques!
