Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Vieques - Casa Dos Chivos

Spacious 1-bedroom house with 9+ years rental history - check guest reviews

Recently discovered but still unspoiled, Vieques Island, off the eastern coast of Puerto Rico, offers scores of gorgeous, pristine beaches, friendly residents and a wonderfully relaxed and healthy lifestyle. Island activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, horseback riding, fishing, hiking, wind surfing, kayaking, bicycling and night-time boat trips to the spectacular bioluminescent bay. Eating and drinking are also high on the list. Vieques has assembled a wide array of delightful restaurants and bars, each with it's own unique character. But of course, the main activity on Vieques is doing nothing at all.

Casa Dos Chivos is an attractively-decorated island house, situated in the Los Chivos hills of Vieques, with panoramic ocean views. The house consists of a very large great room with two seating areas, dining area and new, fully-appointed kitchen. A large balcony, with panoramic ocean views, wraps around the great room on two sides. Adjoining the great room is an air-conditioned master bedroom, with adjoining bath and shower.

This is the perfect spot for a romantic hideaway for two. So, leave your cares at home and enjoy your stay at Casa Dos Chivos!

About Michael Wiack

We (Patrick & Michael) first visited Vieques in 2003 and immediately fell in love with the island. We bought our house the very next year and after much blood, sweat, and tears (and a few $$) have created a place that we think you will feel immediately at home in. Well over a hundred guests have stayed in our house and we have received many kind words of praise and compliments on our vacation villa and furnishings. We hope you'll choose to make Casa Dos Chivos your home in Vieques!

Michael Wiack purchased this house in 2004

Why Michael Wiack chose Vieques

Just read the reviews posted by guests:

'Awesome house and value for the price'

'I loved that is was not right on the beach but high on the hill, the flower fragrances wafting through the air were intoxicating'

'The property is beautiful, larger than it appears online and is conveniently located'

Guestbook comments from the owner

[Excerpt of review posted by this guest on Tripadvisor]

"In terms of where to stay, we rented CASA DOS CHIVOS (the upstairs portion) for the week. Sufficient words do not exist to describe how beautiful the house is or how wonderful our time there was. The owners are extraordinary people and their property manager is a wonderful woman who is totally organized, helpful and available if needed but in the background respecting your privacy if not. The king bedroom has air conditioning and the space is beautifully decorated and maintained. everything you need is provided and there is just nothing so wonderful as grilling at night on the ENORMOUS open terrace looking over Isabelle and the ocean. the breeze is consistent and fabulous, and the view of the milky way at night is to die for. we spent most of our house time on the terrace eating dinner, playing scrabble, stargazing and drinking wine. GO. stay with them. you'll love it.

The house is huge and has a downstairs suite which can be rented as well if you have a family. There's no pool at the house which some would consider a disadvantage but which we actually liked as it would have been too easy to stay put!! the house is about 10 mins from Isabelle and 10 mins the other direction from the south shore beaches."

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Vieques and our first VRBO experience and it was absolutely perfect. I had high expectations with the reviews I read before our visit, but Casa Dos Chivos was even better than I expected. The house is even nicer than the photos show; it was spotless and well equipped with everything you could need for a relaxing beach vacation. We made great use of the beach supplies (chairs, coolers, umbrella, etc.) and the DVD library. The bed was really comfortable and the shower was both hot and powerful. I'm not sure how another VRBO rental will be able to live up to Casa Dos Chivos!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Each time we stay at Casa Dos Chivos I think maybe it won't have the same magic this year. And every single time it does. We adore this place. It's perfect for us...peaceful and beautiful and clean and well-equipped and quiet (except for the much-loved sound of coqui, roosters and horses' hooves). This is our fifth visit and, surprise/surprise, we've already reserved for next year!

Dream getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Sharing this lovely, wonderfully equipped apartment with (and only with) the coquis (musical treefrogs), who serenade you every evening as you grill a steak and gaze out over the peaceful sea, is one of life's truly lovely experiences, one that never gets old.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This large well furnished house is in a very central location. It's in good repair, and Renee was very helpful. She picked us up, helped us unload at the house, and enlightened us on all the great local spots before dropping us off at Maritza's (We wholeheartedly recommend renting a jeep from them).

We had quick access to all our favorite locations on this quaint island. The home's location and construction made us feel safe and secure. We went to bed each night to the sound of the Coqui frogs. We made the quick drive to the grocery store and brought back steaks for the gas grill to go with the fresh veggies we had picked up from the Tuesday morning farmer's market. It took us less than 10 minutes to get to lunch and shopping in Esperanza. About the same to get to our Buen Provecho each morning in Isabel Segunda for iced coffee and Salmon Bagel. Snorkeling at Green Beach was great. We only rented the top floor for our anniversary this time, but fully intend to rent the downstairs too when we bring the kids back.

Fantastic place to stay on Vieques

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling with another couple to Vieques and were delighted to find Casa Dos Chivos. It is the perfect place to stay on Vieques and only 15 minute drive to virtually anywhere on the island. It is a spacious, well appointed home with all the comforts that you expect and more. It is wonderful for two couples to stay, as each has their own space. The kitchen has everything you need to make your own meals when you decide not to eat at one the terrific restaurants in town.

The property manager, Renee, is delightful and very helpful in getting you oriented to the island. She met us at the car rental, and showed us to the property to help us check in. It was dark and we were appreciative of her assistance.

We will stay there again for sure!

Car: necessary

Casa Dos Chivos is situated on a ridge that runs along the middle of the Vieques. The island is only 4 miles from north to south so our house is a short drive to just about every beach and restaurant on the island. The Bioluminescent Bay on the south side of the island, the best beaches on the island on the old Navy base (Red, Secret, Blue, Orchid), and Sun Bay beach are just a short drive away. Just to the west of Sun Bay is the village of Esperanza with many fine restaurants such as Tradewinds, Duffy's, Bili, and El Quenepo.

The largest grocery store and only 2 gas stations are less than 2 miles from the house along the north side of the island.
