The house met our needs and was a beautiful setting. We loved the pool, the view and patios. Everything was fine, but don't count on beach chairs or umbrella, or the cooler. Only two of the chairs were in good shape, one sort of usuable and one totally useless. The umbrella was in shreds and no cooler at all. We found everything else as described. We were met and escourted to the house, but otherwise saw no one. Very provate setting, quiet, but lots of nature's friends came by to greet us. Loved it!
We had a wonderful time staying at Caribbean Vista, the house was lovely and very well maintained. Would highly recommend it!
Vacationing in a Vieques Neighborhood
We enjoyed our stay. Booking was painless, arrival had a bump in the road. We are familiar with Vieques but not Destino and counted on the caretaker to show us the way. We instead received a text with directions which seemed to have the rights and lefts confused. After searching for half an hour we were frustrated. Dennis then did meet us at Mambo, we followed him to the house where he rolled down his window, wished us a great stay and drove off. The house was clean with AMAZING views. A 4-wheel drive is helpful for the very very steep road. We grew to enjoy the cat, chicken and peacocks...great entertainment. The tight knit neighborhood is quiet with very respectful and elderly neighbors which aided to the peacefulness of our stay. I did find the episode on HGTV when we got home which would be very helpful to anyone wishing to rent to get a real feel of the place and area. (Beachfront Bargain Hunt Season 4 Episode 12). We had pretty much everything we needed. A dish strainer and dish towel would have been helpful as well as a laundry basket. We shopped for groceries at Green Store. Esperanza was hopping this time of year and we really enjoyed the restaurants there as well as Bieki's Bistro and Buga's Mexican Restaurant out towards Isabel. There's a great gift shop in the middle of the Malecon as well. The beaches were stunning as always. Vieques has done an amazing job recovering after the hurricane and we were so happy to be able to enjoy it once again.
Perfect home base. Unparalleled views. Relaxing.
We spent the New Year's 2019 in this beautiful two-bedroom, hillside home with breathtaking views. It was the perfect home base of operations to explore Vieques and then return to a quiet and relaxing environment. The owner and his property manager were always responsive - and even picked us up at the airport at 6:45AM when our rental car was not yet ready.
Over all, a wonderful experience and so glad we could spend our time there.
Highlights: 180 degree/panoramic view from a high hillside. Infinity pool. Clean and well-maintained. Plenty of outdoor entertaining space.
Constructive comments: washing machine may need replacement/repair (minor), and bedrooms could use blinds/drapes for privacy from outdoor space. Driving to the house is tricky up a steep road, but manageable.
The villa is on top a hill and has a 180 degree view. The pool is great 8 feet deep and was very clean. The villa is in excellent condition, good beds but lack of TV. Nina our pet was very happy there. Overall...……..5 star.
We enjoyed our stay greatly. The pool is wonderful as is the patio. The beds were comfortable. The relative downsides: The kitchen is tiny and sparsely supplied if you like to cook. The gas grill doesn't light with a switch--you have to stick a lighter into it to catch the grill on fire. The TV is small and hard to watch and there are roosters and peacocks that woke us up at 4 in the morning. The dishes were adequate but plastic (I suppose to prevent breakage) and the washer had a broken knob that made it hard to use. We had to go and buy paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, and ice since the house was not supplied. Not a big deal, but thats why it is 4 stars instead of 5. Overall a great value and a nice place to stay. I recommend ear plugs for the roosters/peacocks.
