About the property

1 Bedroom 1 Bath Apt (Sleeps only 2)

Casita Ylan is the perfect place to rest your head during your Caribbean adventure on the island of Vieques. Why pay more for a room at a guest house or hotel when you get so much more for your dollar. Enjoy a private entrance to the most affordable and well equipped apartment in Vieques. After your day adventure exploring or beach combing, come home to quiet and privacy. Grill up some fresh caught fish from the fish market (or your own caught fish) on the gas grill or on your covered patio kitchen and enjoy the twilight Caribbean skies.

Casita Ylan is on the north side of the island and only a mile from the historical Vieques Downtown of Isabel Segunda. So a minute via car or a short scenic walk will bring you to the sightseeing, restaurants, bars and shopping. Casita Ylan is located on the end of a long private road which is very quiet and safe. It is a short 5 minute drive to the Wildlife Reserve where you'll find some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the Caribbean. Enjoy the beach with supplied beach chairs and cooler. Sleep comfortably on a queen sized bed, and if you want to escape the heat, enjoy the cool air of a new AC. The property is protected by a family of sausage dogs (dachshunds). They aren’t vicious, they’re very loving. And if there ever are any questions you can find the owners living upstairs.

Loved this casita!

  • 5 of 5

Hosts are very hospitable/welcoming. They will treat you like family. The patio and garden area are perfect for evening grilling and (Joeanna will direct you to get fresh fish) relaxation. Casita is comfortable with all the necessary amenities. I will be back!

Excellent location. The house is exactly as the picture portrays it. The property is located right next to the main road of the island but at the same time it is isolated in a country side road which adds a peaceful and quiet side to the experience. Joeanna, Hector and their family are very lovely people. The house is fully equipped and perfect for a getaway. Joeanna and Hector were great. Before arriving in Vieques we wanted to rent a car but all the rental places we're fully booked. Joeanna and Hector called the rental place and got us a Jeep! They picked us up at the ferry terminal and drove us to the car rental. They showed us where the supermarket and where the best beaches were. They have 3 really friendly dogs (dashhounds). Every morning while we were making breakfast two of the dogs came in to say hello and when we arrived after being on the beach all day the dogs were waiting for us (they love being rubbed).

The property has everything: cooking equipment and utensils (stove, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, bbq, etc). The room is clean and comfortable it has a great AC plus a fan. The bathroom has clean towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner; everything we needed.

A million thanks to Joeanna and Hector we loved our experience. We'll be back for sure.

Edgar & Michelle.

Warm, Friendly & JUST like home!! :)

  • 5 of 5

Hector and Joeanna have a very beautiful and well maintained property. For those of you who love dogs, you'll have 4 little friends to invite you every time you go home! The couple are such wonderful hosts and very friendly. The location is perfect ,it gives you all the privacy you need. The house was well decorated and sufficiently provided for our stay. We would recommend this place for all those who decide to visit Vieques. Truly a home, away from home!

Very clean, comfortable, close to the ferry

  • 5 of 5

Joeanna and Hector were very good hosts. They picked us from the ferry and gave us an overview of the town. The house was clean, safe and had all basic utensils. The house also had AC.

The location is a little far from Esperanza which is where all the tourist activities and popular beaches are, but we rented scooter and explored the island with ease. The cab ride to Esperanza is $5 per person and a 10 min drive. I would definitely recommend the place to anyone visiting vieques.
