About the property

4 Bedroom, 4 Bath, Sleeps 8

Get away from it all at our private hillside retreat. Exclusively powered by green energy - solar electricity and rainwater irrigation. An ecological wonder on an enchanted island.

April 8th update: We are officially running on solar power! Our system is installed with Tesla batteries and the set up is working great. We also just resurfaced the pool and it is looking fabulous! Help Vieques fully recover from Hurricane Maria! Vieques is welcoming tourists and would love to have you enjoy it's natural beauty while supporting the local restaurants, bars and shops. We have reduced our prices for the next few months to help get Vieques fully back on its feet. While many of the beaches, restaurants and shops have been reopened, please keep in mind that some places still have power outages at times, and not all services are 100% restored.

Just a mile from Esperanza on the Caribbean side of the island. With eco-friendly simplicity and outdoorsy living island style, Oreanda has its own view of the sea and nearby mountain. The pool area is the perfect spot to relax adjacent to a shaded deck when you're ready for a siesta in the hammock.

Great spot for 6

  • 5 of 5

We booked the entire property and it worked great for our party of 6. We loved having our own pool! The space with big house and both Casita's really worked well for our group. The town is short drive away as were a number of wonderful beaches.

Tyler was very very helpful in picking us up at the airport, if needed, and driving us to the Rental Car place. We rented 2 jeeps, which I would highly recommend, as the roads are quite rough. Tyler went over everything in the house and responded quickly to any questions or issues we had.

We did find the Mosquitoes to be quite bad. So be prepared! The Bio-Bay was not to be missed.

We had a great time and would recommend this property.

Unique and gorgeous property!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven adults LOVED our Thanksgiving trip to Oreanda. This is a very special place with the three casitas which offer togetherness and privacy in an incredible nature paradise.. It is a world unto itself or a base for island exploration. We loved being able to dip into the refreshing pool all day and enjoy beverages on the terrace in the morning and during the sunsets. The outdoor cooking facilities are quite nice and we grilled some Caribbean lobsters one night for a special meal. We thoroughly enjoyed the sights and sounds of the tropics all around us and especially at night.

The on site host, Tyler, is an invaluable asset. He patiently and helpfully responded to all our texts and our vacation was much better for his suggestions. We also rented two 4 runners from the owner for our beach explorations and town runs.

Highly recommend this vacation property with its many amenities and unusual setting!!!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This casita is just perfect. We found the entire process of booking as well as our stay very hospitable. The property manager Tyler is wonderful and helps with anything you need. The property itself is great and the views are amazing. We stayed in Casita Azul and it was perfect for us. We hiked down to black beach from the property and found the location to be so convenient to everything we wanted and needed. Esperanza was our go-to place for food and drinks out if we wanted to not stay at the casita. Our stay overall was amazing and we hope to return sooner rather than later!

1st Time to Vieques

  • 5 of 5

Casita Verde was perfect for our 1st short little visit to Vieques. Tyler picked us up at the airport, setup our horseback ride with Esperanza Riding Company and our BioBay Tour with Taino Aqua Adventures (Alexi), gave us tips for exploring the island, and recommended eateries. Beautiful gardens at Oreanda with hummingbirds, butterflies, tree frogs, chickens, the occasional wandering horse, and mongoose. The pool was refreshing and the view great! We ate our little breakfast on the casita porch each morning before venturing out. The weather was pleasant, the island very interesting, and the rates were reasonable. We recommend staying here. We recommend you do not fly Air Sunshine (Air Sometimes) to get to Vieques.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my first stay at Oreanda in Casa Azul but not my first time in Vieques. Location is close to Esperanza which is, to my opinion, the best little get together town on the island. Everything seen on pictures reflects reality with its wonderful flower garden and ocean view from the pool. The 2 casitas are very cozy. It was easy to make arrangment from Stephanie at booking. Upon arrival, Tyler will easely makes you feel home. When needed, he will provide you all tourists details to make your stay memorable. Thank you.

We will be back soon !

Vieques is a sleepy island located between Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, USVI. We have many pristine beaches, amazing sunsets and the largest greenspace in the Caribbean. The snorkeling is good; the Bioluminescent Bay is incredible, and there's no hustle-bustle here. Paradise.

Other Activities: Yoga, Bioluminescent Bay tours, archeaological sites
