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.

Love the ocean view

  • 5 of 5

A lovely place to stay, quiet and with a lovely ocean view. I'm not much of a cook, but the kitchen is so well appointed , it invites you to use it.

We had a lovely stay at Beso del Caribe - the last three days of our stay in Vieques after spending the first few days in Esperanza - this was a different experience - more secluded, relaxed and luxurious - we wished we had more time to just hang out at our deck and enjoy the view and the horses strolling by and stopping to graze in the garden! There were beach chairs, coolers and snorkling equipment (for two) to take along to the beach. (We did not use the local beach.) We rented a car - which is essential, staying here. The house is nicely decorated, spacious for a family or two couples, and has plenty of cooking equipment.

Peaceful escape

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet, well-appointed house with a stunning view of the ocean and hills, this is your place. It is at the end of the island close to the restricted area but, because the island is so small, everywhere you want to go is within an easy drive. Sitting out on the deck in the morning is something I miss already... Jay, the property manager, was very helpful and gave us plenty of useful tips. Great place!

Wonderful, private house with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

Beso del Caribe is a very beautiful house. The house is well equipped and maintained. There is a very close beach (walking distance, a rarity in Vieques) with a "lagoon", very calm water and ideal for kids. Very quiet neighborhood, minimal noise from roosters.

Jay, the property manager was accessible and friendly.

The house has a fantastic view. Furnishings and amenities, including beach and water toys are well-equipped and thought out.

Everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great time in Vieque no small thanks to this property and its manager Jay. Easy going and always reachable for some advice, he certainly helped us have a great time. The house is well quipped with everything you need and the complimentary pina colada was appreciated.

The property's location made it easy for us to move around the island and had a great view on the ocean as its is located on a hill.

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.

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.
