I wanted to be sure to write a review when I got home since I had only seen a couple of reviews when we reserved. I see the last couple wrote much of what I was going to write. So not much to add.

Great location, great owners, and great caretaker. The caretaker's (Joey) intro to the house was nice. He spent about 15 minutes showing us on the map all of his recommendations, that alone is worth a lot. The next day I couldn't remember which restaurant served paella on Wednesday night, I texted him and he got right back. Try Belly Buttons for the Paella on Wednesday night, make your reservation ahead of time though.
Another nice touch is everyone that has stayed there seems to have added to the place, basics for cooking including sugar, salt, spices, oil, and some alcohol were available. Several size coolers for the beach, snorkel gear, lots of chairs. Only thing missing was a beach umbrella, I should have bought one on the main island and brought it over.

The owners answered all my questions and provided info about the island.

If you go to bed early and are a light sleeper this may not be the place for you on the weekend. We were always tired from the day so we didn't have much trouble with the noise from the band playing late. The front bedroom might get irritating, but my teenager didn't mind.

Thank you for your nice review of Esperanza Beach House. It makes us very happy when our guests have a good experience. We will see if we can get a beach umbrella for the house. Often such items are not available on Vieques and have to be brought over from the main island. But that shouldn't be too difficult to manage. Please come again and stay with us.

“Beach Front Beauty”
Reviewed 17 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Incredible experience! We'll be back! I'm not one to write many reviews, but had to for this gem! My husband, 2 young adult sons (21 and 19) and I enjoyed our first trip to Puerto Rico for Spring Break this year. We went to Hawaii last year and were considering heading back, but decided on a new adventure -- and are so glad that we did! Four of the best days we spent in PR were in Esperanza, Vieques, thanks in large part to our very positive experience with the owners and manager of the Esperanza Beach House.

Suzanne, the owner, was very responsive to all email and phone communications and patiently answered our many questions prior to the visit. She sent essential information such as the ferry schedule, Vieques happenings, and other helpful tips to make our vacation everything we wanted it to be. Joey, the property manager, is a friendly, hospitable and reliable islander and just a phone call away.

The house was clean, spacious, well-kept and secure. Three bedrooms, each equipped with a private bathroom were a must for our family. Each bedroom had it's own air conditioning unit. The house could have just as easily accommodated three couples as one bedroom has a king sized bed, the second, a queen, and the third, two twin beds.

The kitchen had all of the cooking utensils and equipment that we needed to prepare several meals after picking up a few items at a grocery store just around the corner. A large table on the back deck is where we enjoyed our eat- in meals. The front porch was perfect for early morning coffee, people watching, and gathering in the evenings for Pina Coladas and conversation. There was a large cooler for packing lunch and cold drinks for lazy days on the beach.

Other amenities included snorkeling gear, beach towels and chairs, all of which we utilized for the duration of our stay, a washer and dryer, secure off-street parking, and friendly neighbors at El Quenepo (a must-go!) and El Caribe Kayak Rentals (thanks for your hospitality, Rebecca!)

We'd highly recommend this space for anyone headed to Vieques for a warm and wonderful island getaway!

Liked best: Great location, perfect layout, clean and comfy!
Liked least: Because this property is located in the heart of Esperanza, weekend nightlife can get noisy if you' like to turn in early.

“Wonderful Gem in a great location!”

This house just became available for rent as of this last summer. It used to be a kayak rental store on the beach. The owners remodeled the whole building and the kayak shop is now attached, separate and much smaller. It's actually a convenient neighbor ... see my separate review on Blue Caribe Kayak Rentals. The was everything we could have hoped for!

3 bedrooms all with separate bathrooms and mini-split AC. Clean modern appointments. Central kitchen and family room for cooking, partying, relaxing (and storing paddleboards ..ahem, cough cough). Front porch with chairs and little table for eating early breakfast and watching the sun rise on the yacht filled bay. Private back porch with huge table and chais for relaxing in the shade or eating etc. Back yard just got planted...looks nice guys! Plenty of room for parking your rental cars on the side.

Kitchen was fully stocked with eating ware etc. There were leftovers in the bar! We added to them as a gift for the next tenant!

Sound system was great if you want to plug your iphone in it and take all your music there on icloud...
internet access was ok... but spotty. Almost all of the local restaurants and bars have internet wifi too if you need it to be faster. Cell phone access on ATT was great with 4G and ability to get all my email that way with no problem.

The location is awesome. You could walk to everything and kayak more pristine beaches easily. You;d never have to leave the street. Esperanza is a 3 street town with only 1 street (along the beach) really full of commercial activity. Mostly this is bar/restaurant/rental shop stuff. This is a very small town that happens to be awake more in the evening and especially on weekends (read, loud music until 1am on weekends only). Of course, there is plenty to do and see on Vieques so rental jeep is recommended if you want to do more than swim, eat, drink, karaoke, surf, paddle, snorkel, dive, sail on the south side of the island. (!)

This would be a perfect house for friends, 2-3 small families or 1 large family.

Some words of caution: This is not the W. If you are used to all inclusive vacations or ambiance provided by locations such as the W (on the north side of the island), you will not find it in Esperanza. This is an old school Caribbean "pirate bay" sort of town with a lot of settled expatriates and locals running great little relaxing spots... you should enjoy or look forward to such places if you intend to stay in Esperanza. There is petty crime just like anywhere else. Be smart. There are stray dogs but they are friendly and have all been adopted to some degree by the local shops. There is dust. But there are tradewinds :) It doesn't smell like perfume and scented candles all the time... but the water is crystal clear turquoise. The beach in front of the house is ok for a quick dip but the beach 500 meters away is world class, public and has wild horses roaming around on it.

Recommendations: Lunch at Bananas, Karaoke at Lazy Jacks, Bio Bay tour and kayaks from Blue Caribe Kayaks, Dive with Blackbeard, Island Car rental jeep, Breakfast at home or at Bellybuttons, Brugal rum is cheap here. Medalla beer is cheap here. Water IS safe to dink here. Quenepo for date night dinner.

Summary: Overall, one of the most relaxing vacations I've ever had.
