About Cheryl Donakowski

I live in northern Michigan, where we all appreciate a warm, sunny escape in the winter! I owned two vacation rental properties on St. John in the US Virgin Islands, and as it became more developed and crowded I looked for another island that would be as quiet and peaceful as St. John was a few years ago. I 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 purchased this villa in 2010

Why Cheryl Donakowski chose Vieques Island

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!!!!!

Worth every penny!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house! It was very clean and comfortable ...had everything we needed to for the beach( chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, coolers) Kitchen is stocked with everything we needed!! The location is perfect from everywhere on the island. The initial drive into the house was a little nerve racking because it's up on the hill however once we learned our way around it was no problem at all! The view is spectacular! We can't say anything bad about this house! Kelly and Cheo the property managers were just the best also! Super helpful before and during the trip! Thanks for letting us stay here!! We will be back!!

The specific phrase to describe our experience in Casa Tolteca: "an amazing and a perfect place". We fall in love with the house, the amenities and the hospitality of Cheo and Kelly when they received us in Vieques. I just spent one of the best birthday weekend ever! Hope to came back!

Why stay at The W when you can stay @ Casa Tolteca

  • 5 of 5

Everything you read here is true: This comfortable rental is magnificent and the managers are extremely nice and accommodating. Why go elsewhere?

I would just add that you have wasted your vacation if you did not kayak on the Bio-luminescent Bay. Try booking your stay when there is no moon (do an internet search on "Vieques moon calendar") and ask Cheo for recommendations on kayak tours. If you like to cook, bring ingredients from the big island to save some money. Otherwise, ask Cheo for places to eat. I had the best Trifongo ever at Rincon del Sabor (food trailer). In addition, I loved the guava colada and the Tres Leches with Coquito (PR's authentic concoction of rum, coconut milk and condensed milk) at the restaurant Conuco on Isabel Segunda. Rent a jeep to explore the best beaches on the island. My favorite: Pata Prieta (calm waters in a secluded beach-- it's paradise).

By far this is one of the nicest villas on the island! The house and grounds are clean and maintained, well appointed with everything you need for a comfortable vacation. Beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel gear and coolers are provided which was very handy. We cooked on the poolside gas grille almost every night. Cheryl (owner), Kelly and Cheo (house managers) are super friendly and helpful (they also have a island vehicle for rent which I highly recommend). Location is convenient to both towns and the beaches. Beds are comfortable with high quality linens. The house is spacious so there is plenty of room to spread out and relax without being on top of each other. We will definitely be 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.

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
