About the property

A separate, private apartment at Cima del Mundo, suitable for 2-6 people.

Two separate, private apartments with a maximum overall ability to accommodate 10 guests. Suitable for 1-10 people. Situated on a quiet hilltop in the Bastimento section of Villa Borinquen, 3 min. from beach, 4 min. from the main town of Isabel Segunda and 15 minutes from the fishing village of Esperanza. Each apartment has 19 steps that lead to a private entrance. Here, you will enjoy all the comforts of home.

From your private terrace, enjoy the mesmerizing view of the Atlantic Ocean towards the big island of Puerto Rico and our sister island, Culebra. Watch the ferry and the small planes come and go, with the historic fort, “El Fortin Conde del Mirasol”, in the foreground.

Mornings bring the sunrise across the street, over St. Thomas, accompanied by the far away songs of roosters sung to you over coffee. Evenings are greeted with sweeping sunsets viewed from your private balcony. The evening symphony feature the chirps of the coqui adding ambiance to your evening cocktail. Be entertained by the local horses as they sashay up and down the hill, drink from our fresh water trough, charming you as they coyly acknowledge your presence. And the cloud characters! How many you can discover?

We have two Vacation Suites, for your enjoyment. The Del Sol Suite (Of the Sun Suite) has 2 bedrooms (each with 1 queen bed) and the Del Mar Suite (Of the Sea Suite) offers 3 (2 bedrooms each have 1 queen bed, the third bedroom has 2 twin beds). Each Vacation Suite is a full apartment offering all the comforts of a home away from home-fully equipped kitchen, living room, dining area, terrace, laundry facilities and fun, outdoor shower.

Why Deborah O'Keeffe chose Vieques Island

The Viequense are wonderfully friendly people who share their beautiful beaches, wild horses, jungles to explore, relaxed pace, great food and history with travelers from all over the world.

Although Vieques is easily reached by air, once here you feel like you are millions of miles away. Vieques is the Caribbean as it used to be.

What makes this condo unique

Relax in a serene setting, enjoy gorgeous sunsets, watch the wild horses, take walks in a safe setting.

While Cima del Mundo is set apart from the rest, our location is close to everything. You will enjoy the best of both worlds!

Best. Place. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

My feelings about Vieques and Cima del Mundo go hand in hand - best. place. EVER!! My husband and I stayed here for the 3rd time this past January and when Deborah picked us up at the airport it truly felt like a homecoming. She and Dennis excel as hosts and do not miss a thing when it comes to making you feel like their place is your own. They keep it exceptionally clean and are constantly working to update what the sun and sea air can do to property. They are there when you need them and quietly watching over the home while you go off on your adventures for the day. The pool is really a highlight for us at the end of the day - sitting under the umbrellas or floating in the water overlooking the spectacular view is the perfect end to any day on the island before deciding where to dine or firing up the grill. Breakfast and coffee on the patio was our planning station for the "beach of the day" and when we were thinking of fishing one day Deborah hooked us up with a very helpful guide. Do not pass up this home - it is beautiful, well stocked with outdoor toys, fully air-conditioned (although not needed with the nice breeze through the windows!!), and the pictures truly do not do it justice.

We can't wait to plan our next trip to Vieques and get back "home"!!

Island Gem

  • 5 of 5

We had been to Puerto Rico the previous two Januarys and loved the weather but I was searching for a real small island get away with no big hotels or large condominium buildings and Vieques fulfilled my dream! The atmosphere in this little island is totally low key with the most beautiful and quiet beaches I have ever experienced. And staying at Cima del Mundo wrapped it up. We felt we were truly on top of the world as the name implies. Deborah and Dennis were fantastic hosts, they waited for us at the airport even after our plane was delayed by an hour. They picked us up with beer and water and showed us around the town of Isabel II and then took us to pick up our rented jeep. The apartment is lovely, very well appointed with beach chairs, beach towels and snorkeling equipment. They provided enough coffee for several days as well as soap, shampoo, conditioner and toilet paper. Every morning we sat in the balcony drinking coffee and overlooking the sea between Vieques and the big island of PR. Many days we could see rain storms in the distance and then fabulous rainbows. The local people are extremely friendly and do not mind the tourists which by the way are not many in January. We used our jeep and explored probably 3/4 of the island roads which can be pretty rough. If you go, do not skip the sugar mill ruins and hike around the area. When we go back we will take the sugar mill tour sponsored by the Historical Trust in Esperanza. There is nothing else the O'Keeffes could have done to make for a wonderful week!

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

I had been wanting to do the bio bay tour for a couple years. Cima del Munda had been recommended to me by my son from his stay on the island. We were so happy with our accommodations. The pool is a great bonus - great view of the island. Lovely, well equipped apartment including everything you will need for you beach vacation.

The owners are very personable and helpful.

I will most likely stay there again some day.

Stay Again in a Heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Cima was this past January and yes, the review is long overdue. No excuses, I am the "King of Procrastinators." We stumbled upon Vieques as a last minute vacation destination and were fortunate to find an opening at Cima. Look at the photos, read a few reviews, they're all accurate. You can feel confident that Cima is an impeccably kept property with spectacular views and every amenity you could want &/or need. The real plus is that Deborah and Dennis are welcoming and knowledgeable on-site owners. More than that, they're the kind of hosts that will take the extra step to help you out should you hit a bump in the road as travel sometimes presents.

We tell everybody how great Vieques and Cima is. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for submitting a review of "Cima". All good things take time. :) As life is full of "bumps in the road" (in my my mind's eye, I'm picturing the road to Red Beach and the "lomos") we are always happy to help. Dennis and I find that by being on site, we are in a terrific position to help our guests in any way we can. It is our privilege to host our guests' stay. We enjoyed meeting you and hope our paths cross, again, in the future.

Perfect, perfect, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We visited beautiful Vieques during Spring Break 2016 and stayed at Cima del Mundo. We had read the great reviews and still the accommodation exceeded our expectations. The very hospitable Deborah and Dennis met us at the ferry and took us on a quick tour around key parts of the Island to help acclimatize us which was wonderfully helpful. Cima del Mundo was absolutely pristine, with plenty of natural light. The pool was lovely and the view amazing. I have been recommending Vieques and Cima del Mundo to all our friends since our return to the US.

We can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

We made our first visit to Vieques in Feb 2016 and selected Cima Del Mundo as our home away from home. Both were excellent decisions! Vieques is a beautiful place to vacation and not over-run with tourists. There's plenty to explore and no shortage of restaurants. Cima Del Mundo is exceptionally clean, warmly inviting, very safe, and offers views you will not experience if staying in the downtown area. Dennis and Deborah are wonderful hosts, informed us with lots of island tips, and made us feel welcome! We did not want for anything during our stay. We will definitely return to Vieques and will undoubtedly stay at Cima Del Mundo!
