About Casa Paso Fino

We first discovered Esperanza six years ago on a day trip to Vieques. A family of four, two of us recently out of college and two of us long out of college, arrived by publico from the ferry and said, 'Oh! Where's this?!' We have all four returned every year since, first as renters and then as home owners. Unfortunately, we cannot stay all year! We invite you to share our home with us and enjoy Esperanza.

Casa Paso Fino purchased this house in 2009

Why Casa Paso Fino chose Vieques Island

A perfect location for couples or multi-generational families. Everyone can choose his own activity or beach by day, gathering a sunset in the rooftop eating pavilion with sweeping views of the Esperanza harbor and Caribbean beyond. Quiet street yet close to everything!

What makes this house unique

Property is located on the highest and most quiet street in Esperanza, yet within easy walking distance of the Malecon (promenade along the waterfront), where one can enjoy drinks, food, and salsa music in bistros while gazing at the sea (at often at passing Paso Fino riders)! A grocery and bakery are also close by. Sun Bay, the largest beach on the island, begins at the end of the Malecon.

Great location in Esperanza

  • 5 of 5

We loved Casa Paso Fino, which had breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and just a 10-15 minute walk to the Malecon (main oceanfront strip). The rooftop patio was awesome! We had way more room than we needed, as we only had 3 people, but each of us enjoyed having our own room! The kitchen was well stocked and we wish we'd taken inventory before grocery shopping as we double upped on several items. Mini split AC units in all the bedrooms were much appreciated for sleeping, but sleeping in was challenging with all the animal sounds in the neighborhood-roosters crowing, dogs barking etc. Bring ear plugs if you don't get up early!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time my husband, our 9-year old and I traveled to Vieques; first time staying here and we loved it. We rented the top floor and thoroughly enjoyed the bright decor, well appointed kitchen, beautiful view and especially the roof-top deck. Every night we three went up and lay out on the loungers to bask in the panoramic star-gazing. So lovely.

The beds were really comfortable and I appreciated the air conditioning. When the handle broke in one of the bathrooms, I called Aurelio, the local man who attends the house (and who also met us at the airport) and he had a plumber there that same afternoon. Not a problem at all! It was my son's birthday while we were there, and I called Gladys, the woman who cleans and watches the house, to see if she knew where I could buy a cake, and she made a delicious lemon cake for us from scratch!

We live in Boston and on the date we were to leave a huge storm was coming. I contacted Roberta and told her that we were trying to leave Boston early to get to San Juan and then to Vieques. She could not have been nicer: even arranging to have her cleaning people come early and let us in a day early!

We were at Casa Fina for two weeks. My husband and I are both self employed and needed the internet for daily check-ins. My only issue with the place is that the internet is not at all reliable. Of course this is not the owners' fault--it is an island! The solution was to get a "hot spot" on my phone which worked pretty well in the end.

We did rent a Jeep the second year and were glad for it as the beaches are amazing, though Sun Bay is not a far walk at all. This is a great location and a nice neighborhood. No loud neighbors and the roosters kept their distance (though as a light-sleeper, I was glad I brought my sound machine).

We loved it and plan to go back for two weeks in February 2015.

I gladly recommend this beautiful spot and would answer any questions prospective renters might have (if that is allowed on here).

My fiancé and two other couples recently returned from a trip to vieques where we were fortunate enough to stay at casa paso fino. The house and its 360 rooftop views were truly a breathtaking amd serene experience. We highly recommend staying there for stunning views and awesome beaches.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house. In safe neighborhood. Walking distance to local store and bakery, as well as the main strip. We were a party of six, and had plenty of space to spare. The house is very clean, and detailed. The view upstairs is absolutely gorgeous, you can watch the sunrise or sunset, and at night you can spend hours gazing at all the stars above! House contains everything you can think of, and then some! It of an unforgettable stay!

All You Need for A Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were looking to go away for a few days in PR. I had been to Vieques once before with my fiancee and we both feel in love with the place. Since there were going to be 6 of us traveling, we all agreed to rent an apartment. I found Caso Paso Fino and we all agreed this was the place. When we arrived, we were even more impressed with it than what we had seen on their website. The views were amazing from the living but the rooftop balcony was the best. We grilled dinner almost every night, watching the sun set while drinking some beers. They had all the items we needed to grill: charcoal, grill, lighter fluid, tongs, and spatula. Actually, this is the other thing that really impressed all of us. They had everything we needed for the beach - beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel gear, and swimming floaties (even a pump to blow it up), and for the kitchen - spices, complete sets of silverware, dishes, cups, pots, pan and cooking utensils. The biggest plus was the mosquito coils they had in the apartment. This helped us tremendously with the nasty critters while we were there. Roberta, the owner, also left us a binder filled with all the information we would need while we were there. This was so informative and helpful when it came time to decide where we wanted to go, what the local eateries provided, where the bakeries were, and farmer's markets. The apartment is located a few blocks away from the local beach and restaurants. So when we went out drinking we just had to walk there and back. (Do rent a jeep as there is so much to explore on the island and there are numerous beaches all over the island). There were also books about the island that a few of my friends read. It was great learning all about the history of island and what it has to offer. The owners seemed to have thought a lot about the details a guest would need to enjoy their stay while in Vieques.

Dream Home Overlooking Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting vacation homes in America for the past 5 years and this one ranks up there as one of the best I have ever rented. It is on a beautiful hill overlooking the marina in Esperanza. Double wide French doors open to a large deck where we had our morning coffee and evening cocktail. The living, cooking and dining areas flow nicely together and are a good size. The home sleeps 6 comfortably in 3 bedrooms. There are 2 nice size bathrooms with showers and a wonderful outside shower (which I used everyday). The house is a convenient walk to several beaches and to the main restaurants on the "strip". There are 2 grocery stores just down the hill as well.

By far the best feature is the partially covered roof top, complete with a hammock and charcoal grill. The stores have charcoal handy too. The sunrise and in our case, the full moonrise too were fantastic from up there.

The cupboards had good cooking and serving materials, there is a full size dishwasher and refrigerator with ice maker. It had everything we could ask for to make this a wonderful 10 day vacation. I'm sure you will feel the same way.
