At night gaze at the stars while relaxing in the hot tub spa from a long day at the beach. There is also a sundeck to catch some rays, listen to the ocean, and enjoy life.
Wind Dancer is fully equipped and comfortable. The beds are suited with high thread count linens. The unit is decorated with local folk art and original paintings in sothing Caribbean hues.
Vieques is located 8 miles from the east coast of Puerto Rico. Enjoy the secluded, white sand beaches and turquoise sea. There are horses roaming with egrets as companions. It's the perfect spot to relax and recharge. It is an island that appears to be in a time warp of 50 years ago when life was simple.
Paul is an engineer originally from Florida. He moved to Vieques from Virginia in 1994. He began his life in 'paradise' as a dive instructor and eventually obtained his engineering and surveying licenses in Puerto Rico. When not working he enjoys fishing and traveling. Jane moved to Vieques from Massachusetts in 1987. She had been marketing legal services, food product promotion and was a real estate broker in Massachusetts. She became a licensed real estate broker in Puerto Rico from which she recently retired. Jane also enjoys fishing and traveling.
Jane or Paul purchased this condo in 2001
Our property is located in Bravos de Boston on the north coast of Vieques. The north coast is stunning with gentle breezes all year and beautiful sunsets. The property is a two story, two unit building on a hill overlooking the sea. It is relaxing and totally pleasant and a delight to listen to the waves in the background. Each unit is private and nothing is shared.
The view and the sunsets seduced us. Looking at the ocean views is a delight. It is an ever changing canvas - we can watch a rain storm passing by on it's way to El Yunque on the main island, fish jumping and a ray dancing along the surface for a moment or two. It is comfortable and it is home!
The view is very nice, the jacuzzi is fantastic!! Great kitchen for cooking - there isn't great natural light in the kitchen but nice lighting. We didn't use the TV or DVD's but there was a good selection. Jane and Paul were fantastic hosts' (they live up-stairs). The beaches on the south side of the island are beautiful white sand beaches. I'd recommned having a car to explore the island.
Having rented VRBO properties all over the world for 15+ years, I must say that Wind Dancer is probably the best of them all. Jane and Paul were great hosts, provided transfers from the ferry/airport, and had a car available for rent....what a convenience! The condo was immaculately clean and fully stocked with everything you would need for your stay. Great kitchen, fully equipped, for cooking in. We also fell in love with their adopted cat, Vincent, who was with us whenever we were out on the patio. This was our first trip to Vieques and we will definitely be back.
Jane and Paul were excellent hosts. They picked us up and dropped us off at the ferry.The house was very comfortable and it was equipped with everything we needed. We ended up cooking at home on the grill. (We bought fresh fish from the nearby dock.) We enjoyed the deck, looking at the ocean. The beds were very comfortable. There is a (private) outdoor shower, a real treat. The whole experience is very tranquil.
We want to return to Puerto Rico, especially Vieques, and hope that Wind Dancer will be available.
Also, we liked being close to Esperanza.
We highly recommend Wind Dancer.
The property is beautiful with tastefully orchestrated details decorating the walls. The owners are also on top of their game. They are very responsive and were willing to help when we had a question. This place literally had everything you'll need and even things that you didnt think you needed until you came across it. They even had a wireless jambox player for the beach! The place is well located up the street from the ferry port and is located on top of a hill with great views. Vieques was a great time and the beaches are second to none. Come here and stay at this place and you wont regret it for a second. Thanks for the great time !!
My wife and I loved the place. Everything you need is there and then some. We go to visit Vieques regularly and I can say I will never stay at a hotel ever again, and if I plan a trip I will make sure I reserve Wind Dancer. Thanks Jane & Paul you have a beautiful home.
We spent 10 days at Wind Dancer and thoroughly enjoyed it. Jane and Paul were terrific hosts. The kitchen is fitted out with high quality gear - Calphalon, good knives, plenty of gadgets and Fiesta Ware, so it was a pleasure to cook and eat here. And a large outdoor gas grill! We ate dinner on the patio every night, watching the daylight fade over the sea as the Caribbean night sounds come up. (There is, however, a full size dining table inside.) The beds are firm and very comfortable. We slept so well here! The decor and furnishings are well done, with interesting art on the walls (the fan blades could be replaced, but that's a minor thing). After dinner, or sometimes in the middle of the day, we'd jump in the spa tub on the patio to chill out. Location-wise, we felt very safe and found the location to be an easy drive to anything you want to see on the island. Jane and Paul provide lots of toys and gear or the beach - snorkels, umbrellas, chair, etc. Pretty much anything you think you might need to enjoy yourself is ready to hand. Cable TV and wifi worked very well, except for the one time when Mother Nature took them down with a storm. Not a big deal, as watching the storm itself from the patio was plenty entertaining! The place is very large. We were just ourselves, and really enjoyed having all the room. This would be a great option for 2 couples or a family of four, given the separate, very large bed/bath suites, lots of closet space, large living area and patio, with the added bonus of a washer and dryer.
Bottom line: A great place for a relaxing vacation.
