Overview

Vieques Cottage Rental Photos and Description

New Construction in a Perfect Location just 1 mile to Red Beach!

Bonita Vista is centrally located and easy to get to, yet very private. This new hillside retreat features a large, covered pool bar with breathtaking views overlooking the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge and Caribbean Sea.

A relaxing afternoon poolside slips easily into sunset cocktail hour and dinner from the grill. Perhaps a swim under the stars or a magical moonrise over the bay!

Just steps away to the cottage where your luxurious queen bed awaits and A/C or soothing tropical breezes lull you to sleep. Awake to a spectacular sunrise and enjoy a 'rainfall' shower in your en-suite bathroom. Savor your morning coffee from the fully equipped kitchen while you plan the days adventure!

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • non smoking only
  • not suitable for children
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

5 stars isn't enough!

  • 5 of 5

We returned home less than 24 hours ago and are already looking at dates for our return to Bonita Vista. This was our 3rd trip to Vieques. We do not need to try any other vacation rentals. Barbara and Chris have made this wonderful cottage into a home for any traveler. We have never spent as much time at a rental as we did this trip. The pool house and bar were perfect for lazy afternoons, grilling lunch, watching the sunrise and sunset, and just sitting back and enjoying life. The cottage was perfect for our needs. Every detail has been carefully thought out to provide every visitor exactly what they need - rest and relaxation. Chris and Barbara provided as much privacy as we wanted, but were attentive to our needs and very enjoyable to converse with. Our 10 nights at Bonita Vista were amazing. We cannot wait to return - hopefully sooner rather than later!

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

There is not much to say that hasn't been said already - this place is awesome. We left Norway on a freezing day in March and ended up in this paradise quite a few hours later. My Swedish husband and I have stayed at many nice places and been fortunate enough to have many wonderful vacations, but our stay at Bonita Vista and the island of Vieques tops every vacation we have ever had. Every detail was thought of, both inside and outside. We enjoyed the cottage, the pool and the outdoor bar/kitchen. An added bonus was having the most beautiful and uncrowded beaches nearby. The cottage was perfectly cleaned and has a beautiful garden. The pool is only a few steps outside, with a great view of the ocean. The location was great too, close to everything , but still quiet. Wonderful, helpful and friendly hosts. I can't recommend this rental enough. It is truly a magical, romantic hide-away. We will definitely be back!

Great time, wonderful hosts, great views!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I greatly appreciate the use of this wonderful rental space. The views were absolutely spectacular and we did enjoy the stars at night. The private pool was a wonderful touch and we were only able to use it a few times because we spent our days snorkeling at the beach! Thanks for providing the gear, nice chairs other amenities and allowing us to use your vehicle for a nominal charge, which was a nice convenience. Also, we were provided with a very helpful map with insider notes of good places to eat and were the beaches were, etc. I will note, the Federal park (Wildlife Refuge and beaches) with the gate closes @ EXACTLY the time, the time states. We were locked IN and had to wait about an hour and a half for someone to come to open it and there were five other carloads of people lock in with us. They should wait at least until the sun goes down - although that was certainly NOT our hosts fault. This was our second trip to Vieques and we have been blessed to have wonderful hosts. The cottage has everything you need for your use and the grill was great. I would also add, my wife lost a bracelet she had recently purchased in Isabell Segunda and the hosts found it and sent it to us. Thanks again, Barbara and Kris. We can only say good things. Hope to be back soon!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

After MANY trips to this magical island we have experienced several different types of lodging. After our recent stay at Bonita Vista we know we have found the best. There is no detail left untouched.... Spotlessly clean, comfortable, lacking for nothing. Kris and Barbara have done a remarkable job transforming a Viequan hillside into paradise. Sitting at the pool actually puts you at tree top level for the vegetation below. Endless birds flit and sing, right in front of your eyes. It is a delight.

The cottage is equipped with absolutely everything needed, and the fact that nonperishables left behind by previous guests are retained for future users makes an additional plus. What a dream to find odds and ends of herbs, spices and basics in the kitchen. Sure makes cooking more creative!

The treasure trove of historical artifacts scattered about present a very interesting look at the island's past.... All pleasingly displayed.

Barbara and Kris are discreet hosts that kept pretty much out of sight for our entire stay, actually, we would not have minded seeing more of them. They are a wealth of information about life on the island.

The location is great! Can't think of any negatives! A wonderful trip

Perfect Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Vieques many times, but always with a group of family and/or friends. We were excited to book this beautiful casita at this gorgeous location for just the two of us--it was perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed the pool & outdoor space, as well as the very cozy casita. Barbara & Kris are wonderful hosts ensuring a very private & stress free stay. The only challenge we ever had was ascending the steep driveway to exit the property which we did discuss with the owners & they acknowledged that it was due to be regraded--as with any elevated island property run off is to be expected. We would book this property again without any hesitation.

Perfect location, fabulous amenities, terrific view & breeze, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in San Juan for a conference and decided to hop over to Vieques for a week's vacation afterwards. We were fortunate to find this amazing accommodation that exceeded all our expectations! Barb & Kris have set up a private, beautiful, centrally located home for 2 that includes all you need for a romantic stay on lovely Vieques. Knowledgeable about the island and all its treasures, these gracious hosts provide information on any questions you have. Whether you need to know where to go to get in a run or hike, how to find a particular flavor of secluded beach, where to purchase local fish fresh from the pier for grilling yourself, or where to find one of Vieques' best restaurants, they have the answers! After driving literally all over the entire island and exploring its many hidden beauties, we realized how few places like this are actually available for rent. Don't pass up the opportunity to enjoy this exceptionally clean, well-appointed cottage, complete with its own pool, bar and private views - the value and experience cannot be surpassed!
