The Perfect Perch

  • 5 out of 5
Located high on a hill with views of both the Atlantic side, Culebra and mainland Puerto Rico as well as the Caribbean, I can not stress enough what a fabulous house this is. Convenient to both Esperanza and Isabell II we were only minutes from wherever we wanted to be on Vieques. We were traveling with teens and a 5 yr old and all age groups had a fantastic time. We were greeted by the caretaker upon landing at the tiny airport and he assisted us in getting to the car rental office and then to the property. He checked in with us during the week and was there again to see us off when we departed. The house was nicely appointed. We had plenty of beach towels, chairs and coolers to use for our daily trips to the beaches. Unfortunately our visit to Vieques was during some of the beach closings but this only means we'll need to return. Having the pool at the house was great for the kids and a fantastic way to relax after dinner and before heading to the roof for star gazing. The owners were great to work with and very helpful with any info that we needed. Do not miss the Bio Bay tour, it was truly one of the coolest things we've ever experienced.

Great views, great villa.

  • 5 out of 5
Our 4th villa rental on Vieques. We have rented villas on numerous other Caribbean islands and have a pretty good sense of what value means in this context. Casa Columbia is certainly one of the best. The written description is accurate. The villa is clean, well mainatined, and all utilities work well. The views are magnificent. The location of the villa is central to all the good stuff on the island. The pool area is exceptional.

The owners are very responsive and helpful, and make the rental, payment, and airport pick-up process quick and smooth.

This trip our favorite meals were at Noche and Tradewinds. The pizza at Inn on the Blue Horizon was also a great treat, and surprisingly reasonably priced ( served only on Friday and Saturday).

As noted in other reviews, the only things to be aware of are the layout of the villa would make it difficult for anyone with mobility issues, and the access road requires 4 wheel drive and a sense of adventure!

Given the privacy, the views, and the amenities Casa Columbia has to offer, iti s probably one of the best deals on Vieques.

Two weeks is NOT enough!

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first visit to Vieques but it certainly will not be our last! Casa Columbia is an absolutely beautiful villa and equipped with all the extras to make the stay perfect! The heated pool is fantastic! We loved exploring the beaches & restaurants. It is an easy island to navigate, even with the assortment of various sized potholes! The two weeks were gone in an instant! We’ll be back soon, in fact, we've already booked three weeks in 2015!

Breathtaking views in spectacular villa.

  • 5 out of 5
We just spent a wonderful week in Casa Columbia. We no sooner thought of something we wish we had there and there it would be. Beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable. The property manager, Mark, was so helpful and available for info or help. The pool was silky and perfect. The rooftop was magical at night with a canopy of stars that we never see at home. I can't wait to go back and hopefully spend more than a week next time.

Owner's Response: It is one of the best views with or without magnification. We keep binoculars in the owners' closet. If you asked our property manager, he could have gotten them for you.

Undoubtably the best villa on Vieques

  • 5 out of 5
We spent two weeks in this lovely villa on our first visit to Vieques. What makes this villa so special? It is high on a hill right in the middle of the island and so has views of both the Caribbean and the Atlantic. It is in a gated community with only three other villas. Within walking distance down the hill is the Next Course restaurant--one of Vieques' best. So the location is perfect. Ten minutes to Esperanza, ten minutes to Isabel II.
Add to that a heated pool. We have traveled all over the Caribbean over the past ten years and we always stay in a villa and we always travel there in January or February. We have never found a pool at that time of the year that is really warm enough to enjoy. This one is perfect. We spent hours in it every day. The living room, dining room and kitchen are up one level as well as a beautiful entry area and a full bath with a huge shower and glass block wall. The living room has a large flat screen TV (satellite so hundreds of stations), beautiful arched windows and plenty of comfortable seating. The dining room was comfortable with a table for six. And just outside the dining room is a terrace with a bar-height glass top table, four chairs and two stools. The photos on this site are of an older table and chairs. The new ones are dark brown outdoor rattan. We own a restaurant and historic hotel, so I appreciate a good kitchen. This one is first class and well stocked. Next level up are the two bedrooms. Master has a small balcony and a beautiful big bathroom. The second bath is in the hallway, for the use of the second bedroom. Outside the bedrooms is a huge well stocked linen cabinet. Every evening we gathered on the rooftop (4th level) for a cocktail and to watch the sun set. This area also has newer furniture than what is shown here. The roof has two molded resin sofas with cushions and a huge rattan cocktail table as well as a covered wet bar & dining area with a table for 6. The grounds are beautiful, with a well manicured lawn and garden area opposite the driveway. If anyone in your party has mobility issues, you should know that there are many stairs. Only negative was some mildew on the porous tiles of the pool area and the rooftop. I presume this was a temporary issue as this villa has a northern exposure and this has been the rainiest season Vieques has ever had. All in all, Casa Columbia is lovely. I would highly recommend it. We have already booked 3 weeks for 2015!
