Just returned from spending 2 weeks in Casita Verde and loved every minute of it. After researching and checking out many properties, we finally decided on Oreanda only to discover that it was in the process of being sold. The new owner Stephanie contacted us via e-mail and the whole process went smoothly. Tyler, her property manager was excellent, met us at the airport and took care of anything we needed. Thanks again Tyler for the dinner recommendations, the wine, coffee beans and your company.
We especially liked the location, close enough to Esperenza to go out for dinner but still far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet that is Vieques. The only thing that disturbed that quiet were the roosters crowing, but I'm told they are everywhere on the island. We are early risers so it didn't bother us all that much.
After a long day on the beach we loved coming 'home' to have drinks by the pool while watching the sunset.....what a perfect way to end the day!
We would absolutely recommend Oreanda to anyone who wants a quiet 'non-resort' type of accommodation.
