“Best place for couple to stay on Vieques”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Sandcastle Villas are two guest casitas of a gorgeous private residence behind the gates of the W resort. It's the best place to stay on all of Vieques, with the best location, best amenities and best hosts. When you stay at Sandcastle, you have all of the amenities of your own beach house - lovely outdoor kitchen (stocked with spices), beach chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, snorkel gear. They even offer a rental of an old jeep (be cautious on the hills as the breaks and power steering do require a bit of strength) that is perfect for exploring the island and comes without all of the extra costs that you'd get from the car rental agencies. It's an indescribable experience to prepare breakfast staring out into the turquoise ocean. You have all of the luxuries of a five star resort, as the W property is a short walk from your front door. You also have a cozy private beach shared by the dozen houses on the street - the day that we lazed on our beach, we had it to ourselves. It's a great place to go beachcombing and tidepooling, and there is fantastic snorkeling out by the point on the right. We even saw a 12-foot stingray. The property itself is very new, clean, and well-maintained. You have access to a grill, outdoor bar, shaded eating patio, and have a private porch with an awesome ocean view. You also have a beautiful private pool, shared only with your hosts. The hosts, themselves, are a real gem and really add to the experience. Jackie and Gil are welcoming and very helpful, and they do all they can to make sure you have a lovely time on the islands. They pick you up and drop you off from the ferry or plane. They genuinely care about the comfort of their guests, and only rent out both casitas if the two parties are traveling together. Jackie even mailed our iPad charger back to us cheerfully on her own dime, even though she reminded us to collect all of our chargers and belongings when we left. Jackie and Gil are full of recommendations and information to make your experience on Vieques the best it could be. It's like staying with good friends who are there, but give you the space and privacy you might want. Don't hesitate, book this casita now!
