The VIEQUES ISLAND HOUSE rental is located in Esperanza on the beautiful Caribbean Island of Vieques. Close to beaches. Quick walk to the Malecon (main street) for fabulous restaurants and bistros, beaches, boutiques, grocery stores, bakery, water activities, fishing pier and Key West of old style 'watering holes'. Esperanza is a great island neighborhood on the south side of Vieques - the Caribbean side.
The house is air-conditioned. For your added comfort, all the rooms have ceiling fans as well.
The house come fully equipped for a relaxing vacation in paradise--including Beach Chairs, Snorkel Gear, Umbrellas, Coolers, Puzzles, Games, Books and DVD movies. Grill.
Back lanai is private and furnished with built-in cushioned benches for an early morning read and relaxing afternoon naps as well as a dining table which is great for morning breakfast, lunch or dinner. Ceiling fans enhance the breezes.
The yards are beautiful with flowers like birds of paradise...fruit trees including banana, limon, starfruit, guava and more-enjoy!
Getting around the other parts of the island are done best with a rental car. Places to not be missed are some of the beaches protected by fish and wildlife. [Bahia La Chiva (Blue Beach), Navio Beach and Green Beach to mention some favorites]. Sun Bay [Sombe] is a beach within walking distance to the house. Stop at the Green Store on the way for some beach snacks and drinks.
Great restaurant in center of island - not to be missed.
I fell in love with the island on my first visit. I were hooked ever since! Favorite beach is by far Blue Beach. But every time I snorkel a new underwater landscape becomes my favorite!!
Peggie Stauffer purchased this villa in 2007
The house is so comfortable for a great vacation. Almost any amenity you need. The house is close to everything. It is a very walkable area, but there are so many beautiful beaches to see...so a car is a must for at least part of the trip!!
Favorite moment in the morning is watching the wild horses head to the beach from the wrap around windows...favorite moment in the evening is watching the wild horses come back from the beach.
The kitchen is in the front of the house and is open to the dining and living area. It is a great gathering space. The back covered lanai with built in seating is great for afternoon reading and a nap!
We had a very nice stay in your Vieques house. The house was equipped with everything that we needed for our family, and Joeanna was very pleasant and helpful. The location of the home is within walking distance to beaches, restaurants, small stores and the bakery. (A car is recommended in order to see all of the beautiful beaches). We would not hesitate to recommend your house to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Vieques!
From the moment I walked through the door, I felt welcomed! This house has everything you would want for a visit to Vieques. We rented a car for the week and I was glad I did for a first timer in Vieques. I got to explore the island and came to the realization, there is very little I can't experience on foot! From the house you can walk to the beach, snorkle and stop by the green store on the way home for provisions. The Malecon is a few minutes walk from the house where breakfast, lunch and dinner are at your fingertips. Pickups for the bio bay tours and off island snorkeling commence on the Malecon. Belly Buttons for breakfast became a staple. Peggie the owner and Hector the property manager were there to answer any question about the island we had. I have no need to look any further for a place to stay in Vieques. Peggie's, with the outdoor charcoal grill and beautiful surroundings is superb!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Vieques Island house. The house was plenty big for us (we were just two people). Despite 4 bedrooms, it's not a big house, but with 2 bathrooms, and the outside patio and front porch, there's plenty of room. The location was nice - it's in a neighborhood in Esperanza, within walking distance of the Malecon and the Green Store (handy for basic groceries) - but far enough away from the strip to be quiet at night. We liked Esperanza much better than Isabel Segunda; it's closer to the best beaches.
The house has pretty much everything you'd want - beach towels, chairs, snorkel gear, etc. and it's very comfortable. It's a bit lived in, but that worked for us, since we didn't want anything fancy. The owner bought a new charcoal grill that we put together, and it worked great.
I recommend having a car. While you can walk to some beaches from the house, it's much easier with a car, and then you can explore the many fabulous beaches in the Refuge and beyond.
The owner was very nice and easy to work with, and the house managers were terrific - they picked us up at the airport, drove us to our rental car and showed us to the house.
I'd recommend this house to anyone. And, if you go out to eat, the Next Course is very good, as is el Quenepo. Duffy's is fine for lunch.
My best friends and I stayed here last spring to get away from the east coast cold and we loved it! The house was perfect for us: clean, cute, and well stocked. Joanna and Hector welcomed us upon our arrival and were very nice and helpful! We loved the back patio, where we ate meals, had cocktail hour, played cards, and read. The kitchen was great for all of the cooking we did. The location was perfect for us! We didn't have a car and we were able to walk to restaurants, bars, and beaches from the house. The restaurants and bars close by are affordable and fun. We used a taxi once for our big grocery shopping that lasted our stay. We walked daily to Sun Bay Beach, about a 15 minute walk, which is beautiful. The neighborhood is filled with friendly locals and a few wandering, wild horses. Esperanza is the perfect place to stay for a low-key Caribbean vacation. We absolutely loved it and hope to return soon! Thanks Peggie!
This was a terrific home and location. We enjoyed EVERYTHING about the home! The kitchen (where everyone congregates was terrific). We spent many evenings out on the back porch playing games and having cocktail hour. We all certainly wish we were still there! The location is within walking distance of a beautiful beach, town, and grocery store. You must rent a car for the other beautiful sites. Thank you Peggie it was a WONDERFUL stay.
We liked the property a lot. It has 4 real bedrooms so it can sleep up to 8 people. There are all kinds of supplies that can be used by the renter, masks, fins, snorkels, frisbees, dvds etc. It's in a good location, only 5 or so minutes walk from downtown Esperanza where there are beaches and restaurants. Great place to stay. There were 3 wild horses that hung out near the property that were a treat to see each day. The property was quiet and very safe. 2 thumbs up.
Very walkable location, but if you plan on being on Vieques for a few days or more, rent a car to see the rest of the island and all the other beautiful beaches.
