“Great Trip!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We spent 3 nights on Vieques at the lovely Casa de Claire. I wish we could have stayed longer!! We stayed in the apartment above the garage and found the space to be perfect for the 2 of us. We had a full size refrigerator and gas stove. Even though we were right there on the property we had plenty of privacy.

2 of the evenings we spent just hanging out at the outdoor kitchen area next to the pool. They have a fridge, sink, and grill for use along with a patio table and chairs.

Claire and Gordy were excellent hosts!! We thoroughly enjoyed the evening we spent out by the pool talking with them while enjoying a glass of wine and some cheese.

I would love to make another trip back to Vieques and Casa de Claire!

I visited Casa de Claire with a group of friends and the experience was wonderful. The house was gorgeous and the apartments were simple, but clean and comfortable. There was no air conditioner in the main house but with the fans and constant ocean breeze, we didn't need any. One of the owners of the property was on site while we were there, and was so helpful with suggestions for dining, beaches and site seeing that we were never bored. The island itself was so beautiful...downtown areas with local charm and out of the way beaches with all the privacy and relaxation you could ask for. I can't wait to get back there again soon!...I've been saying it since I got on the plane home.

All the amenities one could ask for. It was awesome having access to everything we needed for the beach including ice! There is an ice machine on premises. The kitchen out near the pool is fabulous! So nice and comfortable to hang out there at night. It has everything you need. The property managers are EXTREMELY friendly! Probably the very best I have ever dealt with. I cant say enough how AWESOME they are. Hector checked on us everyday and his wife did me a HUGE favor when I was in need. They are great people, The owners are also very nice people and very easy to deal with. I would surely stay at Casa De Claire again.

We rented the small guest house at this large beautiful estate...the property is very quiet and peaceful. Never found the beach access that was within walking distance of the home, but we rented a truck from the owners, so we just drove to all of the different awesome beaches each day. The property provided beach chairs, coolers, beach toys...etc. It was just like being at home! The guest house had a bit of a problem with ants, but not a big deal if you just keep all the food in the fridge. Having access to washer and dryer on the property was great...The pool and the outdoor kitchen are AMAZING!! Such a great place for groups or families to enjoy a vacation together!

While everything here exceeded our expectations- nothing could have prepared us for our encounter with the greatest hosts and home owners on the island. Every detail was attended to and our comfort and enjoyment seemed to be planned for when Gordie and Claire built this island oasis. While the house was spectacular- the island beaches, restaurants and friendly locals absolutely surprised us and surpassed our every hope! Thank you.

I spent a lot of time researching places to stay, eat and do etc.. in Puerto Rico and Casa De Claire is top notch. Gordy and Claire couldn't have been better hosts. Gordy Picked my fiance and I up from the ferry, took us to get food and our rental car. They had friends in from New England and invited us to go to the beach with them, which was great.( Red Beach, is paradise) Vieques is such a unique and funky island. Gordy and Claire gave us execellent suggestions and we had a great time. Their house is beautiful and the apartment we stayed in was wonderful. It was clean and had a whole kitchen. There are no "Hiltons" on the Island. There are a few boutique hotels, but staying at a bed and breakfast suited us much better. I suggest renting a car, you can go from the North part of the island to the south in 15 minutes. I can't wait to go back.

We booked our Vieques trip fairly last minute during one of the busiest times of year, and got lucky that Claire could offer us the last room available on the property, and perhaps on the entire island. Ha! We stayed in the cabana studio, and it worked just perfectly for us. Full size fridge, all the essentials in the kitchen, great updated bathroom with nice big walk in shower. I was told before booking that to access the studio you walk through the pool pump room, this did not bother us in the least. It's a finished room, clean and actually gives you a little extra room to leave your sandy beach gear. And the pump is shut down before night time, so it isn't noisy. Hector and his wife Jean who manage the property were EXTREMELY accommodating and helpful! Jean picked us up from the ferry and even took us by the market b/c we weren't sure if we would be able to find a rental car to come back later. I called all of the advertised car rental places on the island and all were booked up, but Hector knew a local guy who doesn't advertise and he drove us to get a car from him, which worked out perfectly. Word to the wise, book bio bay tours and rental cars in advance. We lucked out and got to do both, but in a very round about sort of way. We had an excellent stay at Casa de Claire and would definitely recommend it to others. The location is very convenient and close to Isabel (a car is pretty much necessary regardless of where you stay though). And I can't say enough good things about the property managers. Claire was stateside during our stay, but she was very friendly and helpful throughout the booking process :-)
One negative was that the satellite dish wasn't working at the time of our stay, but who wants to sit inside and watch television when there is so much beautiful exploring to do!! Jean said they're trying to have it repaired, but all of the workers have been on Holiday, so I'm sure it won't be an issue for long.
