We had a great stay here in Vieques - everything was perfect and we couldn't have felt more welcome. The studio is located in a great spot, very clean and the neighbours were great for giving advice and tips.

Great bang for your buck . Centrally located in Isabel 2. The Atlantic side , This isn't a spot were the tourist stay at . That's what made it great . It has some great spots around , bien provecho is an organic restaurant great smoothies ( burrito will run you about 12 dollars ) , Bieke cafe also has great food . Much more cost effective. El Cunuco also had a great plate . I ordered the Pionono. In order to go to Esperanza you need to order a cab or you can get on the public van transit system . We just used the taxi. Esperanza has some good spots to eat too but it is full of tourist , we only ate breakfast there ( before we did our beach or snorkeling tours )( cafe del Mar) great sandwiches and breakfast . In order to get to the prime beach spots you need to rent a car or you can rent a ATV . You need to book vehicles well in advanced , they don't have a high inventory . A jeep isn't needed . I highly recommend La Chiva and Caracas beach , in that order . Overall the studio space was spacious and very welcoming. The wifi was choppy , only worked one day out of the three days we stayed there . But I have to give the host credit , they called the company and tried to get the wifi running . Would stay here again .

Host was very accommodating considering our flight was delayed and we had to check in the next day. Place was cute and the upper deck was awesome. We were the only ones there so we had it to ourselves! You're within walking distance to most things but if you want to get to the nice beaches you'll need to get a ride. Rental car isn't totally necessary because of how expensive they are.

My girlfriend and I loved this place. Everything really was a stone's throw away. Stores and shops were all very near by. Sea Glass beach and la chata beach are easily walkable. If you want to find turtles, make your way to mosquito pier. You will want some earplugs as the street outside can get loud, plus the roosters don't care if it's morning or not, they will crow at anytime. We only rented a car one day because they were very expensive. We were able to walk or use taxis the rest of the time. The roof deck provided some great views of the ocean and especially of the sunsets. We would rent this place again.

This place was great. Just a couple blocks away from Black Beard Sports to arrange snorkeling and Bio Bay trips. Food and grocery options just a short walk away. There is a beach just down the block, but I didn't visit. Most of the beaches I was interested in were located in other areas. A rental car is a must in Vieques. Having a gated parking spot was awesome. Very comfortable bed, TV, and the next door couple that checked me in were very nice. Great place. Thanks for sharing.

Great location. Easy pedestrian access to grocery, bars, shops. The roosters, chickens, guinea hens, gatos y perros all add charm and entertainment. The upstairs deck was beautiful, and a place to get away from it all at the end of the day. Tips- rent a jeep. Go where/when you want to that way. Taxis were on time and fares were fair. It felt best being in control with a jeep, though. We love the beaches, chilling with the ex-pats, and living the dream that is Vieques. For a couple (or couple of couples)... this property is well worth the rate.
