Comfortable, inviting and close to town!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one night in Roo's charming home The instructions for getting to the home and getting in were great. Roo answered all of my pre-visit questions quickly. We were in Vieques to do the Bioluminescent Bay kayak tour and to explore the beautiful island. We rented a car which was very helpful in exploring the island in our own. The home has air conditioning in the bedrooms which is a must in my opinion! The beds were comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. There were lots of books and games. They had beach chairs too. Make sure to bring your own shampoo (they have bath soap). It's a very short walk (a few minutes) to the Malecon and to a small grocery store and also a bakery (pizza at night and pastries in the morning). If you are staying more than one or two. Ights, do your gticety shoppping in Isabel. We really enjoyed the front porch with the visiting cat. Bring earplugs! The roosters are noisy even with the A/C!

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.
