Casa de Colores embodies the best of Caribbean living with magnificent indoor and outdoor spaces that easily flow into each other. We lovingly chose every detail, including art work from travels and the owner-artist, hand-picked furniture, and brilliant colors everywhere. The house has two separate structures (and a third which is a stand-alone studio w. queen bed and full bath) tied together by Mexican tiles and interlocking decks with spectacular wide views of the Caribbean. The main house has kitchen (concrete counters), indoor and outdoor dining, large living room, a multi-use/media room with queen sleep sofa, and a master bedroom with views and deck. The main house also has two full bathrooms, and outdoor shower. The second structure has two bedrooms, each with full bath, one a king or 2 twins, and the other a queen, and below is a fully equipped studio apartment with private entrance. All this with a large swimming pool surrounded by magical tropical gardens.
Because of the close proximity of the ungated pool to the house and the main living areas, Casa de Colores is not appropriate for children under 10 years old.
Each bedroom is equipped with a state of the art A/C. The main structure of the main
house is NOT air conditioned because we have found that it is not needed because of the island breeze,
and ceiling fans.
Our trip was fantastic....we had such an incredible time on Vieques..and your house....amazing! It was the perfect location to melt into at the end of each of our wonderfully adventurous days. I think we actually went to every beach (on the maps that you are able to access on unrestricted roads) except Black Sand Beach.
Your house was very comfortable and the landscaping was eye candy! Sitting on the deck at night looking at the shooting stars was heavenly.(no pun intended)
Thanks for such a wonderful week!
Our family of 7 just returned from our third trip to the island. As we were climbing the hill, it felt a little sketchy-but quickly learned that we were in a perfect location! This villa is amazing! Perfect for a large group, families with teens, multiple couples. If you hate the sounds of nature, then this is not the place for you! Luckily my family enjoys the roosters, coqui, horses, dogs, and multiple types of birds that treat you to a symphony every evening and before rising in the morning! The driveway is very difficult to pull into and there is a slight hill when entering from the front. (my elderly mother could not walk up the grass steps)...but we were able to access the driveway behind the property for loading and unloading. My eldest son enjoyed the casita as his own while my 13 year old twins took over the downstairs apartment! The two main floor bedrooms were perfect for my mother and for my teenage daughter (with an extra twin bed still available in granny's room). Best of all, my husband and I took the main dwelling upstairs bedroom-perfect! We could do our usual "Vieques rise early" with out bothering anyone! Then I would promptly position myself on the upper deck with coffee in hand-to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature all around! Case des Colores is beautifully and comfortably appointed and has everything to make your vacation easy and perfect. I'm not a fan of cooking on vacation, especially with all of the great restaurants Vieques has to offer, but you certainly could if you needed to. Unfortunately, it's been a wet summer in Vieques and the mosquitos have been terrible! This villa is so surrounded by beautiful vegetation that the mosquitos were out of control! This is nobody's fault but Mother Nature-but it did make enjoying the pool close to impossible. The breezes of the upper deck seemed to help keep them away. The house managers, Kelly and Cheo were super nice and responsive. They did have the house fogged for us, but like I said, Mother Nature will have her way. By the way, being met at the airport by Cheo is a treat in and of itself! His island vibe, and tidbits that he shares are a great way to start your vacation! It was nice to know that they were just a phone call away if we needed anything. This villa is great for kids because there's just a lot of room for them to be kids! While the villa is exquisite it is also very comfortable-great decor! If we owned a villa here-I'd want it to be this one!
We have spent many wonderful vacations in this gorgeous home and this year was spectacular as well. There is privacy for 5 couples in comfortable beautiful rooms. The common areas indoors are tastefully decorated and fully equipped with every imaginable appliance and utensil.
The pool is so delightful especially after a day at the beach and wonderful to view while eating outdoors.
The comfort and view from the veranda is spectacular and a wonderful place to see the sunset. I would highly recommend Casa des Colores for a peaceful relaxing aesthetically pleasing vacation.
Our large family group stayed in Casa de Colores back in 2013 - it was fantastic and accommodated our large family perfectly, as others have mentioned it is spacious enough that everyone has their own space, while also being able to come together. The owners and property managers were fantastic to communicate with. Our general comment when planning other family vacations has been "we wish we could move Casa de Colores to anywhere we wanted to go" it was perfect!
We just returned from a week at Casa de Colores, and a wonderful week it was. Communication with the owners was a breeze from beginning to end. The house was just as described, and the layout conducive to accommodating our extended family. Between the large upstairs deck, with plenty of comfortable seating and amazing views, the poolside table for dinners (and a few more lounge chairs), and the sweet little alcove (another chaise!) by the burbling fountain, there were many places to relax separately--or together. At the end of each day we all had cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the upper deck, before cooking a delicious meal or going out to one of Esperanza's many delightful restaurants. The lush and well-maintained vegetation provides a home for hummingbirds, bananaquits, and kingbirds, to name just a few. The property managers were prompt and very helpful (though we didn't need any help with the property itself--it was in great condition). I'd recommend this place highly!
We had a fantastic time at Casa Colores! The house is absolutely beautiful, we loved the pool and how it is so integrated into the house, and the views are fantastic. Thanks again for making it so very convenient to rent, and for sharing your home. The house managers took great care of us, and we very much enjoyed both the house and the island.
We were surprised at how big the house is and how much privacy each room has. We only had 4 adults and one child so we did not need the bottom floor apartment with the second kitchen. It is beautiful, comfortable and spotless. Bright colors on the outside but the inside is very tastefully decorated by someone with a great eye for details in nuetral relaxing colors. The towels, linens, chairs, all were high quality.
The house managers were very helpful. They stopped by a couple of times and made sure the pool stayed clean. The pool was very nice for relaxing after a hot day at the beach.
We were centrally located to everything on the island. We went to Esperanza and the Southern beaches most often but also trekked into Isabel and had dinner at the W. We did not cook but there were very nice appliances. We ate lunch at Bananas daily after the beach and tried different places at night.
The weather and the views were perfect along with the sounds of the coquis frogs each night.
You definitely need a jeep to stay here and should listen to the house managers instructions on how to park on the very steep driveway because it is tricky and you can scrape the bottom of the vehicle if you come from the wrong angle.
I wish we had brought a long a a few more friends to fill up the other rooms!
Our house is uniquely situated on the midpoint of the island with magnificent wide views of the Caribbean. It's a perfect blend of both privacy and convenience, only 10 minutes from the best beaches, and equidistant from both main towns and all the great dining, fine and casual, that Vieques has to offer. You're close to the bio-bay, wild horses, snorkeling, sea kayaking, hiking, and mountain biking. Los Chivos is a great area on a beautiful and fascinating island.
