“Perfect spot in Esparanza”
Reviewed 20 December 2007

We spent seven nights at Casa de Kathy and had a wonderful time. Her house is conveniently located to the beaches and restaurants of Esparanza. But the real reason to stay here is Kathy herself. She went far beyond "Inn-Keeper", answering our questions, making us feel at home, and doing everything she possibly could to make sure we had an enjoyable stay with her. I give her the strongest of recommendations. Kathy is the best---you will absolutely not be disappointed with your stay there.

I recently returned from a Research trip to Vieques where i stayed at Casa de Kathy. The lodging was great, in a good position for exploring all areas of the island and Kathy was more than helpful during my stay by taking a genuine interest in assisting me with my research. I recommend this accomodation to anyone wishing to experience the beauty of vieques.

Kathy,
Was a great person to work with when booking our stay. We had the front apartment with the two bedrooms. The Place is cozy, very clean, has a lot of little extras which were made available to us (beach chairs, beach mats umbrellas) and the place is so close to everything. I would stay there again when I go back to the island. Also talk to Kathy about the best beaches, and the best place to eat in the area, she knows it all.

  • Liked — The place was very cozy
  • Disliked — when sleeping with your windows open you could hear the dogs barking

Kathy is fantastic! Staying at Casa de Kathy is probably the wisest decision you can make when traveling to Vieques. The house is comfortable, clean, a great value, and in a great location. Kathy is so kind, helpful, and knowledgable of the island and the native people. She is available to answer any questions, knows the best places to eat and see, and is very involved in the community. If you are looking for a relaxing, stress-free vacation (even on a budget), Casa de Kathy is the place to stay on Vieques!

In our second visit to Vieques we made the wise choice to stay at Casa de Kathy! The two of us stayed in the smaller suite at the rear of the house which was private, clean, neat, relaxing and very comfortable. We cooked some light meals in the mini kitchen and enjoyed the private bath. Kathy went out of her way to make our stay comfortable and fun! The best part of our stay was in getting to know Kathy and hearing her stories of the liberation of Vieques from the US Navy. Her knoweldge of the history, the places to see, good local places to eat and the fact that she knows the people of Vieques made our stay very special. The many snorkeling spots and beautiful beaches make this little island a very special place to relax and enjoy her natural beauty! Take some of the cheap underwater cameras, sunscreen and rent a jeep to visit the beaches. When we return for our next visit.....our first choice in where to stay is at Casa de Kathy!

We arrived much later than we had planned at Casa de Kathy (it had been one of those travel days from Hell). Kathy was waiting for us and gently scolded us for not calling to let her know we'd be late (my phone did not work and I never even thought to ask someone else if I could borrow theirs). She had spent a good deal of time arranging our transport in San Juan, and she was worried about us when we did not show. Regardless, she was gracious enough to drive us
the short distance to dinner.

The next morning, we walked to a bakery and grabbed some fresh bread and pastries. Kathy made us cafe con leche and served us some fresh papaya from her garden. We enjoyed a late breakfast on her patio with
a nice view of the ocean.

She's an interesting character, one of those arrested for trespassing
during the protest movement to stop the bombing runs on the island. She actually spent time in a federal prison.

Casa de Kathy has two rooms for rent. We had the smaller efficiency and it was fine for the three of us. Our young son slept on a blow-up mattress.

These are not quarters to rent if you're going to spend a lot of time
in your room. But, with all the beautiful beaches there, we would you
want to do that?

Kathy is very accommodating and thoughtful-- just like Mom!

We stayed for 2+ weeks at Casa de Kathy. After reading up on places to stay we chose to stay there. First I must say the Vieques has everything anyone would want and choosing the right place to stay is most important. Kathy is the best!!! We stayed in the Studio but did tour the apartment both just beautiful, clean and friendly. If you go take advantage of Kathy and learn all she has to offer places not to miss, where to eat and yes what to do. Kathy's place is by far the best we have had in all of our travels as we pick small islands and cozy places to stay. Be sure to call ahead and rent a car we used Marco's great service and they went out of make sure our trip was great as did Kathy. The whole island is great and well worth the trip. We took lots of photos and hated to come home.

Stayed February 2007
