La Escapada — Your Private Vieques Rental Home

This villa is located in a remarkably quiet area atop two lush acres of beautifully-landscaped grounds surrounded by gorgeous views of Vieques countryside and Caribbean waters. The spacious pool is as ideal for laps as it is for floats.

Located in Pilon, the breezy side of the island, La Escapada visitors enjoy a tranquil, romantic retreat where you can really wind down. Come enjoy the comfort, serenity, and peace amid beauty in all of its island splendor. La Escapada is where you can experience the sensation of instant relaxation and decompression from the cares of the world.

Not that it is necessary with the cool trade winds, but we do have Air Conditioning.

There are many very good reasons why we named our Vieques vacation house La Escapada!

About Kristina Shelton, Property Manager

We are a married couple with a partner in the home who all share a love for La Escapada and Vieques Island as well as lounging poolside next to palm trees swaying in the breeze.

Why Kristina Shelton, Property Manager chose Puerto Real

We have travelled the Caribbean and the world and just fell in love with this charming house in the beautiful hills of Vieques Island. Everyone who experiences time here feels the same as we do about La Escapada. It is a special home for all to enjoy and is indeed an enchanted place. The bioluminescent bay is a MUST see and experience whether by pontoon or kayak. This is a very casual island with all creature comforts but no pretenses. Men: Bring a pair of flip flops, a swim suit, shorts and perhaps a hawaiian shirt and you are good to go anywhere. Ladies: a sundress or sarong will do just fine. Come be as comfortable as you want to be.

What makes this house unique

Beach or pool today? Make lunch or try one of the delicious island cafes? Those are your primary decisions here at La Escapada. You cannot go wrong either way. Vieques beaches are among the most secluded in the world with no concession stands or thronging masses. Our pool is surrounded by beautiful palms under the sun all morning and afternoon and is magical under the star studded skies at night. You have many excellent dining establishments to choose for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Or just stay home and enjoy each other's company over a glass of wine or island cocktail. This is a very romantic retreat!

A lovely, hospitable oasis

The house was bright, clean, and artfully appointed. The property is quiet and private. It is the perfect place to stay while vacationing in Vieques.

just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I had a perfect 10 days at this adorable well appointed house.

Great spot, great pool. House was perfectly clean and well appointed from the linens on down.

House manager was aways available by text or phone to answer questions and give suggestions for restaurants etc.

Loved being off line for the time but cell service worked perfectly if you did need to connect.

Can't recommend more highly,

check it out!

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great rental in paradise! Our family of 5 stayed for 4 days but wish we could have stayed longer. Things we liked most: pool, covered outdoor area, private off street, and disconnected from devices (no internet or tv). Always a nice breeze so really didn't see many bugs. Kitchen nicely equipped - we only ate out once. Definitely need a jeep to access beaches (recommend Maritza's). Bio Bay and snorkeling a must. Hope to return some day!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back. We also love being "disconnected" - hence the name 'La Escapada.' It's not as easy to achieve that anymore!

Delightful family escape to La Escapada

  • 5 of 5

Our family including a 7 mo old spent 6 relaxing days at this lovely home. Time was spent around the pool enjoying the chaise loungers & shade from the umbrellas, while the baby napped & then we were off to one of the countless beaches. Evenings found us around the outdoor table sharing a meal by candlelight! The house has all the beach gear you need, plenty of kitchenware and much more. The location is delightfully private, yet close to all the amenities (Isabel II & Esperanza).

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice comments. We designed La Escapada to be relaxing for all - including babies! Glad you found the tranquility you were seeking and enjoyed both our home and the island. We hope we can accommodate you again some time.

Stop researching - this is where you want to be!

  • 5 of 5

La Escapada... a festival of family frivolity! My wife and I, our two 20-something children and daughter-in-law recently returned from a fantastic week here. The house is perfectly situated on the island to take advantage of all that there is on this low-key Caribbean kismet. Island breezes sweep the property almost non-stop, whether you're lazing by the gorgeous pool listening to the rustling palm trees, dining on the covered patio or gazing at the horizon from the side porch.

It's clearly someone's home... not simply a rental property. The decor is island-fabulous, tchotchke'd just right, and comfy as can be. Tony & Christina take great care as great caretakers do, and made our segue to paradise seamless as can be.

And, oh, the island! Great people, great food, and you can engage or disengage completely, as there are tons of passive and active things to do. From dive-bars with fantastic sunsets to hardcore 4-wheeling adventures to the most pristine, solitary caribbean beaches you're going to find, it's all here.

Highest recommendation. Come and experience it.
