“Absolute Dream Vacation and perfect home”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I have travelled all over the Caribbean and Vieques is hands down my favorite location. The house we stayed in, Casita Rosita, was impeccably clean with all the amenities a traveller could want or need. The location was perfect. We were within a short walking distance to The Malecon and all the restaurants and bars, as well as a magnificent beach with very few people. The owner, Rosie, was more than accomodating. I could not have asked for a better experience and vacation. The vibe is incredibly laid back and slow and invites total relaxation. If you are considering travel to Vieques, Casita Rosita in the Esperanza neighborhood is a winner!

“Wonderful Vacation at Casita Rosita”
Reviewed 7 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

Rosie and Donald's home surpassed our expectations and made for a wonderful place to spend our nine day vacation in Vieques. I feel like the photos featured don't really do their home justice, as they don't capture what I can only describe as the "good energy" on their property and the cute little personal details inside that immediately make one feel at home. Arriving at Casita Rosita, we immediately appreciated how cute the exterior was with its white, pale yellow and lavender color scheme, which compliments their LOVELY, private and walled in tropical garden, complete with outdoor shower (which we used everyday). Casita Rosita provided a few things that are VERY important to us, namely cleanliness (everything was immaculate), great natural light and LOCATION! It is perfectly situated to provide easy walking access to the beach at The Malecon, or even Sun Bay, restaurants, bars and a little grocery and bakery are even right around the corner. All of these are literally a very short walk from the house, but being in a residential neighborhood affords more privacy which was nice. We noticed that people around the island like to play loud music while driving in their cars. This didn't bother us at all, but we noticed that Rosie and Donald even provided white noise machines in the bedrooms in case people don't appreciate hearing the occasional music, roosters, or clip clop of horses making their way down the street. We enjoyed all of it as it made us feel like we were really living the rural island life with all the conveniences of being in town! And speaking of conveniences, the house was stocked with just about anything anyone would need for outings to the beach: towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach bags, coolers, etc. etc. All in all, our experience was FANTASTIC! Everything went very smoothly in regards to check-in and check-out. We had a wonderful vacation enjoying the exquisite natural beauty that the numerous beaches had to offer. Our kayak Bio-bay tour with Melaya's Tour Company was epic! It's a must do! We didn't have a bad meal during our entire stay, in fact we had excellent food at various restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed the animals around the island both wild and domestic, and our stay at Casita Rosita couldn't have been better or more comfortable. For all of these reasons and more, I highly recommend it!

“Easy, close, fruit trees, HOT”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Cute house, with everything you might possibly need. Comfortable bedding but no AC in master bedroom ( which was HOT even after the 3rd day of continuous running of AC in the front room). Would recommend to anyone going in times other than summer.

No TV, which was fine for us, but might be a problem for some. tiny DVD player supplied but the selection of DVDs that were available was awful.

“Don't miss your chance to stay at Casita Rosita!”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Rosie and Donald have done an exceptional job of creating a charming, clean, and comfortable home for their guests to enjoy. We had plenty of space, comfortable beds (we slept like babies!) and great guidance from our hosts. The nearby grocery store and abundant restaurants make the location a no-brainer. Not to mention, the house itself is adorable with incredible outdoor areas, including a beautiful garden. The availability of Ivonne (caretaker) for any emergencies, needs or questions was a bonus and added to our peace of mind. Everyone in our family (teen, toddler & adults) are looking forward to a return trip as soon as humanly possible! The house is stocked with games, books, beach equipment and more - I really can't recommend Casita Rosita highly enough!

We are here right now. I am sitting in a beautiful tropical backyard enjoying my book. We went to Sun Bay yesterday and today - it is worth it to walk all the way down Sun Bay to the end - exquisite. The house is lovely and so fully stocked! Ivonne is so nice and so friendly! The house is nestled in its own tropical forest in a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood, yet close to everything!

“Best access to Vieques w/ EVERYthing you need right here”

I glance outside today, and watch the rain pummel the colorful October leaves loose from the gnarled maple branches I begin to daydream about the coming winter. And as much as I love the first few months of winter in Upstate NY, I can't not think about when we will get back to Vieques and once again stay at Casa Rosita outside of the melacon in Esperanza.

This past stay was our third time to the little island, but our first to Casa Rosita. Our first stay was up in Isabel Segundo and our second trip was at a house up in the hills. Both nice trips, but at Casa Rosita you are sooo very close to the heart of what you're looking for in Vieques. There is an amazing bakery right around the corner for fresh bread and breakfast each morning. A 2-3 minute walk right into town for late night bites and drinks. a 10-15 minute walk and you're in the water on the world's most beautiful beaches - it's all right there.

The house? Couldn't ask for more. The upkeep is superb, and that was honestly a big concern for us when initially renting, but it was beautiful. 2 clean beds with fans and AC in each room. A FULL kitchen stocked with every appliance you could think of needing, Shower and water work great. Backyard shower is fantastic!

The key was easily picked up from the housekeeper across the street who was super friendly. We really couldn't have picked a better spot and plan to come back on our next trip.
