About Mary Kay Lee
When we moved to Wisconsin in 1998, we started visiting the Caribbean to escape the cold winters and enjoy the serenity and beauty of the beaches. During our many visits, mainly to the US Virgin Islands, we started dreaming of owning a vacation home in the Caribbean. Then, in 2014, we visited Vieques for the first time, fell in love with the island, and knew the time was right to make our dream come true. We started looking at homes for sale during that very first trip, and purchased Villa Destino one year later in March 2015. Since that time, we have come to appreciate the many things that make Vieques such a special place. From the incredible bio-luminescent bay, to the spectacular beaches in the National Wildlife Refuge, to the wild horses that roam the island, Vieques is a true vacation destination. Villa Destino has received the highest 5-Star "Exceptional" rating based on guest reviews, and we will do everything possible to make sure that these high standards are maintained.

Why Mary Kay Lee chose Vieques
Vieques is a beautiful unspoiled Caribbean island. The harder choice was which side of the island was better suited for the perfect vacation experience. Initially, we were tempted to buy a house in the Bravos de Boston neighborhood, where most of the vacation rentals are located. These properties are generally situated on the north side of the island (Atlantic Ocean side) close to the ferry and the main town of Isabel Segunda. While the Bravos de Boston neighborhood is relatively close to the water, the area is more congested and the north shore beaches are not very good for swimming because of the waves and rocky shoreline. During our visits to the island, we learned that the best swimming beaches are located in the 18,000 acre National Wildlife Refuge on the south side of the island (Caribbean side). Imagine calm blue and turquoise waters and miles of remote white sand beaches. Villa Destino sits on the edge of the wildlife refuge overlooking the south side of the island and it is perfectly positioned to take advantage of these breathtaking views. Even better, it is just a short 2-3 minute drive to the entrance to the wildlife refuge.
What makes this House unique
What is truly unique about Villa Destino is that the villa opens to the outdoors on both levels and allows you to really enjoy the warm tropical breezes and abundant sunshine, whether indoors or out. Villa Destino is also one of the few homes on the island that has installed the state of the art solar energy system featuring the Tesla Powerwall II Battery. This set up allows Villa Destino to operate off the grid so that the house will continue to have power even if an island-wide blackout occurs. (This does happen from time to time) This offers peace of mind knowing that our guests will not have to spend any part of their vacation sitting in the dark wondering when the power will return. Villa Destino provides an incredible luxury experience at a fraction of the cost of a stay at the "W" Hotel or other high end vacation homes. When you consider that Villa Destino has its own private pool, incredible views, private gardens, full amenities, with better access to the south side beaches, Villa Destino is an easy choice.

Fabulous house for family and frineds- clean comfortably wonderful location!
I have rented this house twice - I love Vrbo!
a beautiful view high above the Vieques preservation area, looking out to the Caribbean Sea. The house is very comfortable and well provisioned with amenities. Property is quite private except for the local roosters who let you know the early morning time. Positioned between Esperanza and Isabela Segunda, it was easy to travel to the beaches or for meals. The hostess, Karen, was very attentive and added local infofrmation/ knowledge for places to visit or things to due. The home has a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere and the sunrises; sunsets; and the night sky are spectacular!! I highly recommend this spot for anyone traveling to Vieques.
Wonderful stay on Vieques
Our family greatly enjoyed our time in Vieques and our stay at Villa Destino. We loved waking up to birds and rainbows each morning, opening the downstairs doors, and drinking coffee by the pool. The villa was conveniently located to both towns on the island and to many wonderful beaches. Mary Kay was easy to communicate with prior to our stay, and Karen was nice enough to meet us at the airport and give us an introduction to the villa. Thank you for sharing your special place with us.
Wonderful property with all the amenities!!!
Thanks Ron for choosing Villa Destino and for the nice review. We are glad you enjoyed all that Villa Destino has to offer and hope you return soon!
Need to go back sooooooon!
Yes, it's paradise. What a beautiful villa and remarkable island. Thank you Mary Kay and Darryl for thinking of everything we could possibly need when furnishing your property. Thank you to Karen and Yadira for making sure we were secure and informed and that the Villa was perfect for our stay.
Tip for early risers..wake up before the others, open all of the villa doors, let in the cool morning air, look out on the extraordinary landscape and enjoy your coffee by the pool.
Thanks Jeff for the lovely review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and we do hope you choose to return soon! Great tip for early risers - one of our favorite things to do is exactly that - enjoy early morning coffee by the pool, looking out over the Caribbean and listening to the sounds of nature!
Amazing experience - one of the best views on all of Vieques and so much space for everything we would need to do and more. The entire stay was perfect. The property manager Karen is communicative and fun to talk to. Very helpful. And Mary Kay was great to communicate with prior to the stay too.
We had 6 of us staying there and we each had enough privacy but great communal spaces too. We grilled a few nights and loved listening to the coqui while stargazing. We hope to come back again soon!
Thanks Joy for choosing Villa Destino and for the lovely review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and do hope you choose to return soon!
