Vieques Villa Gallega A-16-N
Reviewed 25 July 2012

My husband an I wanted a getaway place that felt like we were in another world, far from the madness of the city but not a typical touristy Island resort. Villa Gallega was amazing and gave us just the experience we were looking for. Incredible views from every part of the house was the first thing we noticed. The house itself was very tastefully furnished and comfortable, and gave us all the amenities one could find in the finest hotel, including cleanliness and good housekeeping. The fabulous swimming pool and grounds were also meticulously groomed and added to the enjoyment of our lazy afternoons sipping cocktals on the deck. We hated to leave this paradise after one week and will surely return at our first opportunity.

You will never want to leave this paradise. The house is situated with the most magnificent views from every room in the house. The infinity pool is spectacular with stools built in the deepend so you can eat and drink without ever getting out of the pristine pool. The house is fully equipped and internet ready. It is centrally located so getting to any of the fabulous beaches is a short trip if you choose to leave the house! The people on the island are friendly and welcoming, and the restaurants are incredible. Not a day goes by when I dont look at the pictures on my computer. If you want a wonderful, relaxing, romantic, fun, getaway.... this is the place!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Villa Gallega for a week in May and we loved every minute of our time there. The house is located on a quiet hilltop (away from the sounds of the many crowing roosters of Vieques) and the house, the grounds, and the views are all beautiful! Pictures just cannot do it justice. We stayed in the studio on the lower level, and were lucky to have the grounds to ourselves, being that no one was staying upstairs in the main house. We made a lot of use of the infinity pool and the jacuzzi and the outdoor shower. The studio itself is simply, tastefully done and the king-size bed is very comfortable. There was plenty of towels, coolers, and chairs to take with us to the beach and there is an electronic safe in the room.
If you've ever been to Vieques, you probably know that all the best beaches are accessed by wildlife preserve beach roads, so no matter what you will have a drive to the beach. Villa Gallega is located in the middle of the island, a bit closer to Isabel Segunda than Esperanza and the area is lush and peaceful... and a short drive to the beaches. I would much prefer staying in this location than in Isabel Segunda or Esperanza, which can be loud, and the former, a bit seedy.
If you are big on cooking while on vacation, however, you might be better to rent the main house upstairs, or seek somewhere else to stay, as the studio only has a dorm-room sized fridge, a microwave, and a coffee-maker. Outside there is a grill and a sink.
Joey, the property manager is absolutely warm, wonderful, and helpful.
We will definitely be back... next time, hopefully with friends to rent the house upstairs (Joey let us have a tour before we left and it is INCREDIBLE).

We went with our 8 year old daughter to Vieques for Spring Break, being our first time there. Arriving at the villa felt like being welcome in paradise: the house in on a hill, secluded from the main road, with a gorgeous view on the forest and the coast. The main level of the villa has the gated parking, most of the rooms and a sun deck, while the lower level hosts the hot tub, the swimming pool and an outdoor kitchen with a barbecue.

We were able to spend a relaxing vacation, going to the beach in the afternoon and spending the mornings and evenings around the pool and the hot tub. I personally loved waking up, or swimming in the pool and being able to see the forest and the see. From almost any points in the house (rooms or deck/pool), you can see the coast.

The house is very well decorated and furnished. The living room is spacious with huge windows, satellite dish TV and internet is a plus (given the fact on living in such a small island)... The espresso machine was a nice touch (we are both espresso lovers...): this made us felt like being at home.

Every few days, the caretaker of the villa was coming and helped us with the questions or inquiries we had.

If we go back to Vieques, we will definitely stay again at the villa

My husband I stayed at Vila Gallego for four nights. We rented the studio, which fit our needs perfectly. The studio was clean, tastefully decorated and equipped with the essentials--small fridge, espresso maker, tv (we didn't actually use this), and a microwave, among other things. They shower was hot and had good water pressure (I understand that this can be an issue at some places on Vieques).
They also thoughtfully provide beach essentials--cooler, chairs, beach towels, etc. The grounds surrounding the home are well-maintained and lovely to wake up to.
Villa Gallega is little known around the island because it is secluded on top of a hill. The house and parking area are secured by a locked gate. There are great views from the patio just outside the studio and on the larger deck off of the main house. We were lucky enough to be at Villa Gallega at the same time that the owners were using the main house. They were extraordinarily friendly and helpful, even picked us up from the airport.

Our family of 5 spent a recent glorious week at Villa Gallega. The setting is spectacular, the house modern and well equipped. The beautiful house is set high up in the hills, affording stunning views of both sides of the island with steady breezes keeping the temperature pleasant. The house clearly reflects stong architectural nuances and is filled with great artwork, and an excellent Bose sound system. The very comfortable great room was just the thing for our 3 teenagers to relax, and the decks (2) a great place to watch the sunrise or set. The top level master bedroom and bath give privacy and the 2 main floor bedrooms worked well for 3 kids.

A car is required, and the villa convenient to both Esperanza and Isabel Segunda. The house is well equipped and while the kitchen is small it is adequate to prepare a few meals, and the Italian espresso machine a nice touch. We loved Villa Gallega, while the island is a bit rustic, retreating to the Villa gave just the bit of comfort to make it all a superb experience. We'll definitely return.

Hello,

(My apologies for the delay as I've been meaning to post this for some time now. I was hoping to have returned to this wonderful villa by now!)

My girlfriend and I spent four fantastic nights at the Studio in Villa
Gallega, February 14-18, 2008. Joey, the house manager, was even kind enough to pick us up from the airport which was very convenient. We loved the house's location with it's private deck, hot tub, and unobstructed view of the northern shoreline. Every morning was spent sipping coffee and listening to the roosters in the valley. This house gives us all the more reason to return to Vieques as soon as possible. And for the next round we hope to return with a group and move upstairs ;)

Thank you for the wonderful experience!

Best,
Kyle Eberle
