We love Casa Violeta!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay at Casa Violeta! The house is charming, and is nestled right in a residential neighborhood in Esperanza. There is a small bakery and colmado right around the corner. Great for morning pastries, afternoon beers, and pizza! Literally a 5 minute walk to the Malecon, and an easy walk to Sun Bay. We rented a jeep and hit seven beaches in three days. Often, we would share a mile of pristine sandy beach with fewer than a dozen other people. The off-season is great! If you want to escape the resorts and experience life in PR, this is the place.

The kids loved eating the ripe mangoes from the tree out front, and got a kick out of own backyard rooster. The night was a Caribbean symphony, a cacophony of insects, frogs, roosters, dogs, falling mangoes, and wind in the banana trees. The guestbook suggests that some people used ear plugs, but we loved the night sounds!

The only downside is that the house has no AC. We knew that in advance, and were looking forward to the trade winds keeping us cool. Unfortunately, the trade winds are not consistent. Our first night was a dead calm, and it was extremely hot and uncomfortable. The next two nights were breezy and comfy, but the last night was a bit stuffy again. The ceiling fans just don't cut it on a calm night. Maybe floor fans - AC would drown out the enchanting island night sounds!

If you are looking for an authentic Caribbean experience away from the resorts, and do not mind a bit of tropical heat and night sounds, Casa Violeta is a magical place!

Laid-back and affordable

  • 5 of 5

Casa Violeta was exactly as advertised: simple, comfortable, clean, relaxing. The beds & living room furniture are comfortable, the kitchen well enough equipped (if you want to bother to cook during your vacation). The best place in the house is the big wrap-around porch, where you can eat meals, enjoy cooling breezes, nap (or read a good book) in the hammocks.

How about this: Wake up to the sound of the rooster next-door and turn on the coffee machine; stroll half a block to Dulce de Esperanza bakery for a pastry, or get some fragrant, hot pan de aqua, the local bread, and bring it back to the house to toast. Tomorrow if you have the ambition, you can walk the extra block to Belly Buttons for eggs-over or French Toast. After breakfast, walk to Sun Bay beach and sit under a palm or sea-grape and watch the sun climb the sky until it's time to head to the Malecon for a burger and a cold Medalla at Duffy's. Back to Casa Violeta for a nap in the porch hammock before you hit happy hour at Bananas. Dinner at Tradewinds (I recommend the Thai pasta with shrimp...) and a night cap back at Duffy's where you can rub elbows with all the local characters. Welcome to Margaritaville. Before you leave, you really ought to exert yourself (just a little) to get out to the great beaches at the east and west ends of the island, where you'll never have to fight crowds for a great spot, and be sure to book a nighttime tour of the bioluminescent bay, which will amaze you; there's not another one in the world as bright or as accessible. If that's your idea of a great getaway, then Esperanza, Vieques is for you. If you need a golf course, casino, TV, or designer brand-name shopping, go somewhere else and leave Vieques to those of us who fondly remember the Caribbean of old.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning $50

Prices all inclusive, $150 required on booking, balance due one month before departure.
We are a rental house, not a hotel, and so we prefer longer term bookings, two or more nights. If you want a one night booking, we may be able to accommodate you, but we will charge a premium. $120 for one night in summer (low) season, $220 for one night in winter (high) season. We reserve the right not to accept one night bookings in peak weeks where we would likely lose a weeks rental to accommodate your one night rental. Please contact us for details for any specific dates.
Long term stays are also possible, please contact us for details.
Mid-week to mid-week bookings are fine if the calendar allows, and many of our guests prefer to do this because airfares tend to be cheaper.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
