|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Located in Barrio Esperanza at 347 Calle Tintillos, Casa Jenny offers Stateside convenience and easy access to all the action and beauty of the famous Malecon... Vieques Island's focal point for celebration and just plain hanging out! The home is comprised of 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and 2 half baths. There is PARKING IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE. There are 2 separate living areas, one downstairs and one upstairs (each sleeps 6). Both have private entry as well as their own covered roof top patios (sorry, no kids under 10 ...roof top railings not child proof) complete with view of the Caribbean. With completion in January 2006, the original home was gutted, more than doubled in size with additions at the rear and totally modernized, right down to the cherry cabinets and 36 inch digital TV's with satellite dish!
The home is two and a half short blocks from the Malecon... making it possible to enjoy your stay on Vieques Island without having to rent a car. You can walk to the restaurants, shops and cafes as well as to the beach that is adjacent to the Malecon's commercial area. Less than one block away you will find a small colmado (grocery store), a bakery/pizza shop and a chicken restaurant. Want to explore the beaches or outlying areas? Local taxis are abundant and will take you anywhere you wish for a reasonable fare. If you do wish to rent a car, our Links page will lead you to all the car rental companies.
The home's furnishings, appliances and fixtures were all new as of January 2006. Sheets and towels are all high quality 100% cotton. Both units are tiled including first floor front porch, second floor balcony and second floor's Casita roof patio. There is a covered roof top patio for each unit, each with its own private stairway. Upstairs unit has a bathtub with tile surround. Downstairs unit has a large walk-in tile shower. Both units have their own washers and dryers in a separate laundry/sitting area. There is an abundance of shelving and clothes hanging areas throughout the home. Nearly all lighting is on dimmer switches for that 'just right' ambience. Unlike most Vieques offerings, the all-new windows are glass, not metal slats which tend to make rooms somewhat gloomy at times. Great rooms and bedrooms all have ceiling fans and the bedrooms have window air conditioning units.
The neighborhood is a safe one and the neighbors are friendly. Feel free to stroll about. Other rentals are sprinkled throughout the village and the locals are used to visitors. Esperanza lets you experience island living more as a resident than as a tourist. The sights and sounds of everyday life here are of roosters crowing, geese making sounds like a squeaky gate, the occasional visiting iguana and people living the free and easy island life. Upon request, you will be greeted at the airport or ferry by our very capable and good natured manager, Kikito, who will help you get settled in and be available if you need assistance.

Dave Williams purchased this house in 2005
Just wanted to let you know how great this house and the people (especially Kikito) have been. Let me know where to post a review for future renters to read. Thanks for everything. We only have two more days and I wish it was more. My family wants to take this home back with us, it's beautifully done.
We stayed 5 nights in the lower unit of Casa Jenny and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We appreciated Kikito's picking us up and returning us to the ferry, as well as his pointing out items of interest on the drive. The house was convenient to every thing we needed and provided all the necessities - the washer and drier were a real bonus! It was fun to have extras like the rafts, snorkels, puzzles, etc., to make our stay more fun (especially on the several rainy days we experienced). Living like a local does include sharing their noises - roosters mostly, with the frequent cars blasting music or propaganda - but that added to making it a more authentic experience. We did not have a car, but walked to several of the nearby beautiful beaches. If we come again, we'll spring for the rental just so we can explore beaches outside our walking range. All in all, we loved Casa Jenny and our stay in Esperanza.
My family spent a week at Upstairs Casa Jenny and loved it. Bring earplugs or a noise machine if you are sensitive as the roosters do their job first thing! We loved it. Dave was great to deal with and financial transactions were smooth and as expected. Most impressive was Kikito, the property manager. He went out of his way to help us, was available by phone for questions, picked us up at the airport and gave us a driving tour to acclimate. We loved Esperanza and will return again in 2015!
House was in a great location, not too far from the main area...10 minute walk. The house looked like the pictures posted, just more greenery grown up around it. Inside the house was clean and spacious. Dave the owner was most helpful with any questions that we needed answered. We would rent this property again, and recommend this to anyone that would be interested in staying in Esperenza. I think out of the adults and teenagers, Duffy's was the restaurant of choice. Great selections and reasonable prices. "Fun Brothers" was an awesome place to deal with for kayaks and scooters. Since there really is no place to park at the house, we rented the scooters during the day and Megael, let us take them back there to park for the night. Scooters are the way to go around on the island, out in the fresh air, and can park anywhere, just drive safely and watch for potholes. There is not one traffic light on the island. Make sure to venture out to all of the different beaches. Lots of side (dirt) roads to get to them, just have to watch out for the entrances. Bio Bay tour is a must!! Was a little bit scary, but well worth the adventure :) Kayak to the island directy across from the piers, great snorkeling. Secret beach was the best for nice sand. Green beach nice for snorkeling. The bakery around the corner was very good, fresh bread daily, donuts...but be careful not to eat too many!! Grocery store around the corner, almost the same prices as the one in Isabella. Green store was also good for groceries. Take a taxi ride anywhere for $3.00/person. Reliable taxi driver was Coqui. Be adventurous and ready to explore the wonderful sights on this island. Awesome sunrise and sunsets to watch out for. Maybe a suggestion to bring your own staple foods (coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, condiments). Bring along some water and snacks in case you arrive late, nothing will be open, grocery stores close at 6pm. Don't forget the sunscreen, everyday was gorgeous. We had a wonderful time!!! Enjoy yourself on ISLAND TIME!!
