Peaceful, relaxing place to stay

  • 4 of 5

I just got back from Vieques yesterday, and had a lovely time staying in this Casita. The owners were not home but Joeanna was extremely helpful and very lovely! She was gracious enough to pick me up and return me to the airport. She also pointed out places to eat and where to get my groceries. The casita is a perfect size for sleeping, ample closet and drawer space, nice bathroom and plenty of clean towels and toiletries. Outdoor kitchen was nice to have so I didn't have to go out to eat all the time. The salt water pool was clean and very relaxing to hang out at, and the beach (very private!) was literally across the street. The only thing I'd say is the wifi is not that great (for those of you who need to be connected all the time) but I didn't care because I was there to RELAX and have vacation!!! I would definitely stay there again!!!

Total Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 5 nights. A lovely, quiet island.

The Villa was everything we could have needed and wanted. Lovely hosts. There was never a need for anything. As is mentioned in other reviews, the amenities of having coolers, kayaks, beach chairs and umbrellas is surely a plus and the equipment is well kept up.

There are so many great reviews of this villa and believe me, it is all true.

I am a resort GM and it takes a lot to give a five star review! But this villa earned the rating!

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Jackie & Gil were wonderful hosts, including meeting us at the airport and giving us a great tour of the places to go on the island. The property is stunning and very comfortable, we felt at home as soon as we arrived. The villa has all you need, and the outdoor kitchen is a wonderful place to start & end your day. I had high expectations and was not disappointed. We will definitely be back!!

Great property and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

The wife and I spent over a week on this property for our 30th anniversary. We are the adventurous type but we also like a little luxury nearby if wanted throughout the course of our days. The property is on the grounds of the W resort which is immaculately kept. We used the Cafe, the bar and attended the Taste of the Caribbean event one night. The cafe has great coffee and a great simple breakfast and pastries. It also has wine, beer and touristy concessions.

The owners were on vacation when we arrived but arranged for their housekeeper to pick us up at the airport. She was awesome! Once the owners did arrive, we would see them occasionally, but they were by no means intrusive to our privacy. We did end up spending some time with them, and found them to be very easy to hangout with. As it turns out they enjoy a somewhat celebrity status on the island. Almost every local we talked to knew, or knew of them.

Instead of repeating the other reviews, I would totally agree with all of the positive comments. One thing I would add is that the beach that is accessible from the property (maybe 100 yards) was our own private and beautiful beach all week until the island filled up with people attending the Taste of the Caribbean event. You can sit there all day long doing whatever you want to do, while enjoying views of Culebra and PR of in the distance. The deck area has lush tropical foliage and between plants you have a vantage point of looking north over the island where you can see PR, Culebra, the town of Isabel II, the ferry that goes between the islands, and Cayo Blanco, a small spit of an island about 2 miles off shore. The pool can be described as the cleanest on the island.

We got a car at maritza's (Kia Soul w/ 4000 miles on it) for about $450 for 8-days including gas. We explored the entire island, went Fly Fishing, snorkeling, hiking, sailing, bar hopping, bio-luminescent bay kayaking, kayaking on our private beach, and were able to stay busy almost every day all day. The property is in a great centralized location for exploring the entire island, yet is in a very private and secure setting.

We had a little snafu with our internet connection upon arrival, that eventually was solved, but was a blessing in disguise. Dealing with email on vacation is anti-vacation in my opinion.

All-in-all I would recommend this place to anyone. And the hosts I would now consider friends (can I get a discount next time?). Thank you Jackie and Gil!

Wonderful stay in Vieques

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 nights here in May and definitely hope to return to Vieques and to stay at this property. The "casita" itself is spacious, clean, and tasteful--just as nice, if not nicer, than a typical hotel room. We had the place to ourselves, as the owners, Jackie and Gil, only rent both rooms for couples traveling together. In addition to the room, we had full access to the outdoor shower/bathroom, outdoor kitchen and grill, balcony and outdoor lounge seating, pool, and beach gear in the garage. There is a nice private beach shared with the other private residences across the street, though we mostly explored the other beaches on the island. The W is steps away, and we did something at the resort every day--a spa treatment, drinks, appetizers, lounge by the pool; it was nice to have some resort amenities without spending a fortune with taxes and fees for a small hotel room. We also rented a car at the W which was very convenient. The property is only a few minutes from the airport, and Jackie and Gil were happy to pick us up and drop us off. They provided restaurant and beach recommendations and were helpful and friendly but not at all obtrusive. Vieques is a pretty small island, so with a car we could get to beaches and restaurants easily. Overall a wonderful, quiet holiday. We hope to be back!

The best vacation we have taken in a long time! Relaxing but adventurous at the same time..........

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I cannot wait to go back to Vieques next winter! We will not look anywhere else to stay, unless we go back with our children and then we would have to rent a house. Everything you need for your vacation is available to you if you stay at Jackie's Sandcastle Casita. The property is clean , comfortable and has a beautiful pool and outdoor kitchen. You can walk across the street to the beach or walk 10 minutes to The W Hotel. Everyday was a new adventure exploring the island and the gorgeous beaches with our 4 wheel drive rented jeep. The beaches we found were private and remote and we could not have found them without a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Jackie also had plenty of beach equipment available to us, which included kayaks, beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, cooler, towels. Thanks Jackie!
