We stayed in this Caribbean cottage for a week just after the Easter celebrations. It has the welcome feeling of home, amidst the colorful variety of sights and sounds of island life. It is impeccably decorated (island/Mexican motif) and well maintained. There are several areas for lounging—the rooftop deck, the front and rear patios or the living room, however we spent most of our time driving around to different beaches and exploring the island which has not yet been overtaken by the big hotel chains. We used the kitchen daily and found it had absolutely everything we needed, even some of the spices that I thought about buying at the market. We enjoyed the location of the house, a few minutes drive from the town of Isabel II, in the barrio of Santa Maria, which seems to be a neighborhood of mostly locals. We felt like we were experiencing a bit of authentic Vieques life. Do not be surprised to see the occasional horse or two walking down the street or the crow of a rooster.
The owners were easy to work with and Joanne, who met us at the airport, helped orient us and took us to a market on our way to the house. There is a terrific little bakery in Isabel II, where I picked up pastries and “café con leche” almost every day. The island has some fantastic beaches which we often had to ourselves and snorkeling opportunities abound. We made two particularly memorable outings—Bio Bay (night swimming in bioluminescence) and horseback riding, which allowed us to see the island from some really different locations.
My husband and I just returned from a week long stay at Casa Flaboyan. It is well appointed with all the home and beach necessities, plus more! There were 3 kitties who visited the porch daily and we were happy to feed them while we were there. The owners have decorated with colorful, Spanish inspired artwork and decor. The house sits on top of the hill in a small neighborhood close to town, however having a rental car is strongly encouraged. The caretaker JoAnn was very helpful without being intrusive and provided us with some great tips via text message throughout out stay.
The bed in the master room was quite comfortable and with the AC on at night the room stayed comfortably cool. I do recommend ear plugs to block out the neighborhood roosters, and a sleeping mask if you want to sleep in late. Ceiling fans in every room keep the air circulating so it was never stuffy inside.
The tiled shower with a waterfall shower head was really nice and always provided hot water. The outdoor shower is cold water only but refreshing after a hot day. Having the washer and dryer available was very convenient.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and never felt unsafe or lacking for anything. We traveled to Esperanza most days for dinner and enjoyed some great meals at El Bloc, Next Course & El Quenepo. Our favorite beach was Blue Beach, we went on Abe's Tour for the bio-bay, and enjoyed snorkeling at Blue beach and Esperanza pier. Vieques is wonderful!
We stayed for one week at Casa Flamboyan mid February - our first trip to Vieques (and Puerto Rico). We were very happy with our choice to head off the beaten path both with respect to the island and the accommodation. The house was perfect for us - a family of four (two parents, and two teenage daughters). The kitchen was well supplied with all required utensils so we were able to prepare many of our own meals. The house appeared exactly as depicted in the photographs. We took advantage of the TV/DVD, snorkeling equipment, and even the many games (including vintage sets of Scrabble and Monopoly). We had read some comments elsewhere about the local cats, but these did not bother us at all. The presence of roosters was evident every morning - bugged the teenagers more than the parents though! JoAnne who met us at the ferry was a great help - waiting for us first to get our rental jeep, taking us to the supermarket, and then welcoming us to the house. We will certainly be back!
My husband, adult daughter and I had a relaxed and joyful time at Casa Flamboyan. The house is comfortable and well stocked with kitchen and beach stuff that made the stay easy! My happy place at "home" was on the front porch in the mornings sipping tea and reading or doing art! We had a great time cooking meals at the house, but also had some stellar meals out. Check out Coqui Fire - fantastic! Run by Jimmy who used to do a Tex/Mex night at Azul Mars Bar. There was great information at the house as to what was happening which made our stay richer. Chris is great to work with, and JoAnne the caretaker is a peach. We loved being in the barrio of Santa Maria, and my husband spent a lot of time roaming the streets nearby and finding interest at every turn. The roosters are a force to be reckoned with, and earplugs a must. If you like air conditioning, I guess that might be a solution to early crowing too! The beaches are incredible, and absolutely pristine and beautiful. We were so happy to be at Casa Flamboyan and wish we had stayed longer!
This beautiful little home was clean and inviting, walking in felt like coming home from vacation. It was even more inviting and comfortable than the photos led on!
Chris and JoAnne were both great when it came to helping us plan out our vacation. Giving us tips on what beaches, restaurants etc to visit.
Our favorite adventures where finding the old sugar refinery, the old military bunkers, radio tower, exploring the Spanish Fort and tromping to the forest to find the Black Sand Beach.
Our favorite Beaches to snorkel were Sun Beach, Pata Preita (secret beach,) La Chiva (Blue Beach,) La Grande (Green Beach,) and around the pier. There was also a great little coral reef to explore just past the white wall of the W resort. The Road comes to a sharp elbow and you can see where some cars have pulled off the road. Pull of there and about 20-30 ft out is a harder to find reef to explore.
Media Luna and Navio are good beaches to go to if you are looking for a swimming pool type body of water to relax and float around in.
I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did and plan to do again!
The place is an absolute charm! Great and safe location, and not a bad view. The design and layout offer a great spanish zeal. I would definitely visit again and will refer this place to my family and friends. Vieques is a charming island to visit. You have to get out, explore the many wonderful beaches and mingle with the local gringo's. Both bedrooms have AC which makes snoozing at night an absolute delight. Great amenities which include a washer and dryer in back of house. Very well maintained and even comes with some amenities for the beach. I am a creature of comfort and this place offered just that!
Casa Flamboyan is located on a hillside in Santa Maria overlooking the ocean with views to the main island of Puerto Rico.
