Guestbook comments from the owner

Gorgeous view, total calm, chaise lounges on the patio, beautiful inside and out, comfortable bed with extra layers of softness, lots of soft clean towels....

The owners provided everything we needed, and more: snorkel equipment, books, lots of information on Vieques, a vehicle in excellent condition available to rent, coolers and beach chairs, washer and dryer...

We would recommend this highly to anyone wanting beauty, quiet, and easy access (5 minutes by car) to town for good food, fine art, a bar with live music. And of course the beaches - irresistible.

We plan to return.

Everything you need is there

  • 5 of 5

When you rent a house you never know what you are going to get. But this time, you get exactly what you were promised and some more. You know that feeling when you think - "Oh, if only they had this, it would have been great". This time I didn't have to look for those things, everything was planned and executed perfectly. Every detail. Location, view (yes, exactly like from the picture), layout, equipments, beds, kitchen, everything. And Jay, the property manager, so helpful and friendly. I would definitely like to come back.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more perfect location to spend our holiday. First off, this property is VERY well kept. Clean kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms. The kitchen is gorgeous and has everything you need for the week if you want to cook a a few meals for yourself, pots, pans, utensils and most importantly, a coffee pot is provided. They even had a couple days worth of coffee to get us through until we were able to get to the grocery. The beds are both extremely comfortable, with AC units in both rooms if you so choose. We found that most nights the ceiling fan and an open screen door were more than enough to keep us comfortable.

Their property manager Jay, is fantastic. He picked us up from the airport, took us to pick up our rental can, then spent time driving us around Isabell II to make sure we had our bearings. He also spent a good deal of time with us offering his opinions on the best beaches and restaurants on the island.

The location of Beso is absolutely perfect for what we like in a vacation. Our family likes having easy access to all of the accoutrements a location has to offer, while at the same time we require the ability to "get away" from it all when we so desire.

Located atop one of the tallest hills in it's area, the view your view of the Atlantic is unimpeded. You are a three minute walk to the nearest beach, about a five minute drive into Downtown Isabell II and its many restaurants, shops, and the ever important liquor store, and about a twenty minute drive to downtown Esperanza. Everything is extremely accessible, but upon returning to Beso, you certainly have a feeling of peace and quiet.

We had a fantastic experience in this property from beginning to end. Good people to deal with, great communication, and an extremely smooth financial transaction.

Five stars and a couple thumbs up from our teenager.

Thank you to all involved for a fantastic holiday!

An amazing place in pardise!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time in Vieques and in this beautiful house. We could have gone anywhere in the Caribbean, but we chose to come back here. We love this island and this house offers amazing accommodations. The house is so well equipped - it has everything you can ever need. It is very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the amazing view from the patio where we had dinner and cocktails every day. I cannot recommend this place strongly enough!

Map

Car: recommended

Beso del Caribe is in a nice, safe neighborhood in Barrio Villa Borinquen just a very short walk to a protected beach. It is a great location for a quiet stroll, hunting for shells and sea glass, snorkeling, swimming or kayaking. Best yet...take a car to the many fabulous beaches on the island and you can enjoy sunbathing, body surfing, boogie boarding, swimming, snorkeling, diving, and other water activities. Vieques has several fabulous restaurants to choose from, including the newly opened W Resort. You may opt to fill your day with a massage, mountain biking, hiking or sailing.
