This house (and the island of Vieques) are absolutely amazing. This was by far one of the best travel experiences that we have had. As our first AirBnb experience, we really couldn't have asked for more.
Dennis, the property manager, met us at the airport and guided us to the house. We loved the personalized service and friendly greeting we received. He gave us great tips about restaurants and attractions on the island and we felt completely at ease with the process. Checkout was also a breeze and he was very accommodating, checking in on the property while we were not there and responsive to any text messages or calls we sent.
The house has no AC, but you definitely do not need it. The breeze coming through the home made for a serene and comfortable temperature the entire time. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you could imagine that you would need. We really appreciated also that there was a cooler and beach chairs to use.
The pool has breathtaking views to enjoy as well as the doors that open up from the master bedroom. It was the best way to wake up in the morning opening the doors and drinking our coffee while watching soaring hawks and birds pass by over the valley below. The second floor also has a table and chairs, perfect for dinner time. There are so many outdoor areas to enjoy and utilize.
The third floor deck is a great feature for stargazing at night and for watching the sun set over the far side of the island. You can see EVERYTHING from this house, including views of Saint Thomas and other islands in the distance. You could see clear through to the lighthouses at night!
There is a secure gate at the entrance so you can park inside the property. We felt very comfortable and at home in this neighborhood. It was quiet and tranquil, with only the sounds of the ocean breeze and the occasional horse neighing.
The house is within a VERY short driving distance to everything that you would want to see on the island and it was so easy to get around from the central location of the house.
The house is very private. There are plants situated by the pool so that the neighboring property cannot see the pool. It also attracted hummingbirds that we enjoyed watching! We felt completely secluded.
The house was incredibly clean and the decor is very nice. There are TONS of towels to use and there is also laundry on site.
We would 100% come back to this property and give it a glowing recommendation in every aspect.
