“Wonderful place with wonderful people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2009

Our son had stayed there for his 30th BD. We saw his pictures and heard his stories and were hooked. We decided to go and our daughter and son-in-law went too, although they only had a week while we had 2. We had a great time. Gordy and Claire are truly gracious hosts - we didn't want for anything and hope to get back again soon. I think our daughter and husband are planning to go this year to celebrate his birthday.

I already have booked my week for 2010. Claire and Gordon are wonderful hosts and go out of their way to be sure your vacation is all you want it to be. The property is spacious and well cared for. The rooms are large and imaculate. In reading the recent review from Green Doctor I think the should have stayed mainstream in San Juan and forgot about trying to expreience the real Puerto Rico. This is my fourth trip to Cas de Claire and have enjoyed every stay at the property.

If you are looking for relaxation, sun and great beaches, this is the island for you.

Bravos de Boston is the quieter side of the island, which suited us just fine.

We have stayed at Casa de Claire three times and intend to go back again next year. It is the cleanest and most comfortable place we have stayed in all our travels around the globe. The owners or managers are always available, if not in person, at least by phone. They are friendly and accomodating.

For a $20 tip we were met at the airport and brought to the property. (This was arranged by the property owner ahead of time)

The pool is gorgeous, there is a fridge, ice maker, gas grill, dishes, glasses and utensils right by the pool for guest use. Units are well equipped, clean and comfortable. Since we arrived at night, there was coffee and cream for us to have in the morning until we could get to the grocery store. If you need information the owners are ready and willing to help you out.

Casa de Claire has it's own unique personality. It has it's contingent of the usual island creatures; iguanas, cats, horses and roosters roaming around outside the grounds. This is what makes it such a great spot. Sit out by the pool in the morning with your coffee, or at night with your favorite beverage. What a great, relaxing way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.

If you do only one thing while in Vieques, you should go to the bio bay. It is incredible!

It was good to know my cell phone worked there.

You do need to rent a car to get around the island and incredible beaches.

Casa De Claire is fantastic! I have trouble believing the negative review. Yes, only 1 apartment has A/C. You're in Vieques! They should have done their homework. The home is beautiful and the apartments are as cute as can be. The pool and bar/BBQ areas are immaculate and perfect for fun! Claire has always been 100% accomodating, courteous and makes sure that you are comfortable and happy! I would recommend Casa De Claire to any of my friends and family. Vieques is not the Ritz Carlton and does not have those amenities. Vieques is a jewel that hasn't been discovered by the masses. That is what makes it special - not fancy rooms and room service!

I was fortunate enough to have spent a week’s vacation at Casa de Claire, and can’t have enough good things to say about it. It is centrally located to all the amazing beaches and the busy downtown areas that provided great shopping and restaurants. Casa de Claire was a beautiful, comfortable house and we immediately felt at home. The renters were exceptional people that made sure we had the best possible time we could, and when a problem arose, the very friendly grounds keeper was right there to rectify the situation. We were lucky enough to have one of the renters there during the week, and he took time to show us around the island on several occasions. The house remained cool and comfortable throughout the out the week despite the sweltering heat outside and there was always the massive pool to dip into. We spent much of our time trying the different beaches and enjoying cookouts at the pool. We even found a karaoke place one night!! Casa de Claire sits atop a huge hill, and you can look out over several points of the island. We spent several nights at Casa de Claire’s rooftop bar looking out at the water. I have recommended this place to several people and I hope to return very, very soon. Do not pass up this wonderful island experience, you will not be disappointed. This was the best vacation I have ever been on. Thank you Casa de Claire! See you soon!

I'm stunned at a certain review above. Yes, there is no AC, but who needs it in this paradise????
The owners are incredibly friendly, provide EVERYTHING you need, and the main house has
so much square footage you my be tempted to spend you entire vacation in the house! The view
from the top level of the house is exactly what you think of when you think, "Island paradise".
If your looking to enjoy quiet time, beautiful scenes, and warm weather, look no further.
Casa de Claire is the closest you'll get to feeling like you own that gorgeous house in the islands.

I would definitely recommend you to stay at Casa de Claire. From the very beginning our experience was great. The house is huge, nice and clean. Hector (Walton) and his wife were the ones at the house and they were both great people. We stayed at the bunk house, we were two couples. It was small and only had two bunk beds, as it is shown in the web site, but it was ok for us. We only were there to sleep so we didn't have any problem at all. We used to spend the day beach hunting and then get to the house and have a nive time at the pool, which was very nice and clean as well. If you are plannin on gping I wouldn't leave the Island without going to "Pata Prieta" Beach.

I hope you have a great time at Vieques and Casa de Claire!!!!
