Puerto Rico Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, sleeps 8

Casa Tolteca provides the tranquility and beauty you expect in a tropical vacation. Newly constructed in 2008, the villa offers four bedrooms and three baths, including two master suites with ensuite bathrooms. Completing the picture is an exquisite 30 foot pool, two outdoor showers, as well as almost a half acre of grounds with tropical gardens, ensuring a tranquil vacation. The house was selected for the Vieques House Showcase Tour!

The villa is only 5 minutes from the main town on the island and less than a 15 minutes drive to the best beaches. Located in the hills overlooking the countryside, and the Atlantic Ocean beyond, Casa Tolteca gives you the relaxation you crave, the carefree living you need, and the vacation you deserve.

*** Looking for a 2 or 3 bedroom accommodation? We own another property on Vieques with two 2bdrm units and one 3bdrm unit - all around a gorgeous swimming pool! If you are interested, please contact me

About Cheryl Donakowski and Frank Misplon

We live in northern Michigan, where we all appreciate a warm, sunny escape in the winter! We owned two vacation rental properties on St. John in the US Virgin Islands, and as it became more developed and crowded we looked for another island that would be as quiet and peaceful as St. John was a few years ago. We found Vieques to be the perfect place for us - plenty of great (protected) beaches, lots of great restaurants, wonderful people, and a lot of peace and quiet!

Cheryl Donakowski and Frank Misplon purchased this villa in 2010

Why Cheryl Donakowski and Frank Misplon chose Puerto Rico

Casa Tolteca is a great house in a great location. We have plenty of room for groups to gather together and also plenty of room to spread out. With the pool deck, covered porch, living room, upstairs library area, and roof deck there is a space to suit everyone.

We are also in the perfect location, in a residential neighborhood in the hills about 5 minutes outside of Isabel Segunda, the main town on the island. As a result, you are close to restaurants, groceries, gas stations, ATM, etc. We are also very near the road to the entrance of the Nature Preserve and are within 10-15 minutes drive to most of the world-class beaches on the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

....after 5 different visits to Vieques. We were a party of 8 adults an 3 babies. Opposite to our horrific experience at Beso del Caribe (also in Vieques) where the security deposit was unjustly kept by the owners after their property manager lied to them, and we were even bitten by fleas, our experience at CASA TOLTECA was JUST WONDERFUL. This was our 5th visit to Vieques and so far THE BEST EVER. The beautiful landscape, very nice and ultra clean accommodations, together with all the amenities one can think of for a great vacation, definitely made CASA TOLTECA our home away from home in Vieques.

Thank you Cheryl, thank you Cheo!'

We can't wait to go back!!!!!

From start to finish a class act. The booking was informed and responsive. The caretaker a delight, warm and friendly with great info. As for the Villa words cannot do it adequate justice! A beautiful, stylish property. It does not feel like a sterile vacation rental. It is a wonderful home. A flowing, easy living floor plan that readily accommodates a family of 8. The towels and linens are great, well equipped kitchen, great showers, plenty of hot water. No problem with internet and if you have Sprint you do get mobile service at the Villa! The grounds are a delight, lush and vibrant color. The neighborhood feels safe and exhibits the local community. A short drive to town or beaches from this central location. The black bottom pool provides warm water and endless fun.

The Villa is so well equipped from beach chairs to ice chest to snorkel equipment it really is a dream come true.

Our first trip to the island and we loved it.

We would not hesitate to recommend this property to the most discerning travellers.

It was hard to say goodbye to Casa Tolteca. We feel fortunate to have spent such a wonderful time there.

If I could ask for one thing it would be an electric kettle! After being in the UK for a few years my family have become tea addicts!

Five stars...10 out of 10

Cannot wait to return to this paradise.

California family of eight.

perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Terrific house, easy, comfortable, a great place to return to after a day at the beach. The kids, 4 and 8, loved the pool and exploring the property. The adults, much older, loved it all, especially the lovely third floor bedroom where we, the grandparents, hid out from time to time. Cheryl is a great host and her caretakers are there for anything you might need. WE hope to return.

Lovely & Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely and relaxing place! The house supplied all we needed from the kitchen down to the pool chairs & towels.

The beds and linens were comfy, as well as the furniture.

Beautiful outdoor living area too.

Kelly & Cheo were great hosts and even rented us their Jeep for the week.

Would love to come back sometime!

Great location for a family.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable home for 8 individuals although we only ended up with 6. From the booking with the owner to our connection with one of the managers, Cheo, at the airport and questions to Kelly the other manager by email or phone, it was a fantastic experience. Easy drive to the fish market and the grocery store with a small store nearby for essentials, (beer and ice). The kitchen is very well stocked and easy to prepare wonderful meals in. The bathrooms were nice. The bath towels and the beach towels were very generous. Having the on-site washer and dryer was great. My husband and I had been to Vieques before but was so happy to introduce this wonderful island to our son and his wife and our daughter and her fiancé. I would stay at this property anytime I was able to come to my favorite island.

I cannot rave enough about this property, the minute we walked in it felt as tho we decorated it ourselves, and we lacked nothing!! it was clean, beautiful, the linens were lovely, the bedrooms crisp and calming. washer and dryer onsite, beach towels were plentiful and very nice. The Bathrooms were very nicely done, the kitchen fully equipped. the pool and grounds were just wonderful. Cheryl, the owner, was a joy to deal with and she really helped us plan our stay. Kelly and Cheo the property managers were just a delight and we hated to leave them! This trip was for my moms 80th Bday celebration and both Cheryl and Kelly were fantastic in letting us know if property was suitable for us, and they helped us with suggestions for dining and car rental etc..the island itself was just the best fit for our group, we can't wait to come back. It is true that cell phones don't work well at the house itself, but elsewhere on the island no problem. the wi fi worked really well and there is a landline for making dinner reservations etc. .... sometimes when you book a rental house it can look tired and used hard, not in this case, the home was just a breath of fresh air. we LOVED everything about it. Fantastic property!!!

Absolutely stunning Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Tolteca was perfect or our group of 8. We came to the island for a wedding, and rather than cram into hotel rooms at the W, we opted for more space and privacy. Everything about the house was wonderful, very cozy, spacious, clean, and modern. Our bed (the upstairs master) was SO comfortable, and the view from the upper deck was just stunning!! We couldn't get out of the pool, we went in almost every night too because the water stays super warm from the dark bottom. The location is awesome too, gorgeous landscape and views of the sea from everywhere. We didn't hear any roosters either (which is often a problem on the island). There is minimal or no cel service at the house, but the wifi works great and texts and FaceTime worked perfectly for us. I would definitely stay here again, highly recommended!!

Car: recommended

Vieques is the last of the unspoiled Caribbean Islands. If you want golf, and nightlife, this island is NOT for you. If you want empty beaches, quiet evenings overlooking the tropical landscape, great restaurants and nice people, come to Vieques.

Our home is perfectly located in a residential neighborhood in the hills, 5 minutes out of the main town of Isabel Segunda and convenient to restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, atm, etc. It is also only 10-15 minutes to the world-class beaches in the Nature Preserve and about 15 minutes from Esperanza, a charming fishing-village on the south shore with waterfront restaurants, shops and water sports.

Other Activities: Kayaking in the BioBay, exploring Vieques countryside
