What a great property! The pictures are 100% representative of what you get. This is a very new renovation, so the condition is 'as new' like the photos suggest. The place is also as roomy as it looks in the photos-- no wide-angle lens tricks. The property is impeccably maintained and very comfortable.
The yard is enclosed by a fence, so it is protected from the wild horses and very secure. There are fruit trees that guests are welcomed to harvest. The first floor open area has the most amazing breeze and provides shade during the day. We spent many evenings in this open area.
This house is on the Isabelle II side of the island which is further further from some of the really exquisite 'destination' beaches; however, the island is small and nothing is more than 15-20 minutes away. Also, there are many fantastic beaches nearby.
The tradeoff is that supermarkets, restaurants, shops, services, etc. are really close at hand in Isabelle II. Make sure to try the Rising Roost for breakfast!
I really enjoyed being further from the more touristy Esparanza. It was nice to meet local people and to be in a quiet neighborhood setting in the evenings. The view of the ocean is fantastic, and there won't be any traffic or loud parties nearby to spoil it.
I was a little worried about only having air conditioning in the bedrooms. It really wasn't an issue as the house can be opened up to all the magnificent ocean breezes and stays pretty cool. There were two days when the air was still and it got a little hot, but the open area on the first floor was always breezy and cool, even on the still days. Plus, you can retreat to the bedrooms if you really need to cool down.
The property manager, Val, is incredibly nice and a great resource for any questions you have about Vieques. She is a really big part of what makes the house a great place to stay.
Book this house with confidence! My wife and I will stay there every time we go to Vieques.
Wonderful vacation rental!
The house was perfect for our family of six. It has a well-equipped and beautiful kitchen, comfortable beds, and a great assortment of beach supplies (towels, coolers, chairs, noodles). One of the advantages of this house is it's location on a hill. We never needed a/c because the wind blew a cool breeze through the house all week. The kids loved to run around in the gated yard and hang out downstairs on the hammocks when we were at the house. We definitely recommend the house.
We enjoyed staying at Veranda Del Mar while on Vieques. From the deck are nice views of eastern Puerto Rico's mainland and western Culebra. We also liked viewing the property's yard where several plants were blooming in various colors and fruit was hanging on a some. If the upper deck is too bright or warm you can retreat to the lower deck for shade, a steady breeze, and relax in the hammocks. Val and Julie were easy to contact and responded quickly to our questions both before the trip and on island.
Relaxing and amazing getaway!!!
My husband and I stayed here for a week. Actually extended our stay for a few more days. We were looking for a quiet and secluded place to stay. The Veranda del Mar fit our needs and exceeded.
Val was great. She showed us around the place and answered any questions we had.Thank you Val.
Loved the downstairs with the open breeze and relaxed in the hammocks. Beaches are close. Everyone we met were extremely friendly. Food was excellent. I even ran on the beach!! We will come back. We loved it here!
Had a great time. Everything we needed was provided. It was nice to have beach towels and chairs as we spent every chance at the beach. The kids loved the hammocks and the patio stayed nice and cool. The only thing it needed was ceiling fans in bedrooms to help move the air at night instead of having to use the A/C.
Beautiful home - We loved our stay
We loved our stay here! The home is beautiful with all of the comforts of home. (Besides the only air conditioning is in the bedrooms; which is very common everywhere on the island) The home had a nice breeze and fans so it was comfortable in the main living areas.
If you plan on cooking, you'll find the cooking utensils you'll need and even a grill. (Side note: It'd be nice to have a slow cooker so we can start dinner before heading to the beach)
The home was gated and very secure. There are nice views of the ocean from the main living areas and master bedroom. We enjoyed breakfast on the large, wrap around porch offering views of the ocean. At night, you can lounge on the porch and admire the stars; they are so bright! There is also a huge, covered patio beneath the home with a sitting area, hammocks and bar.
The home had a washer and dryer which was great. We never had issues with electric or water during our stay. (Something I heard was common for the island) We always had hot water and never lost power.
There is a beach perfect for families with young children only a short 10 minute walk from the home. (Shallow, calm water) "Town" is only a 6 minute drive from the home where you'll find a grocery store, restaurants, ice cream and pizza shops, etc. You'll definitely need a rental vehicle when staying here. Most nice beaches are within a 15 minute drive.
All in all, this was a great home and we'd love to come back!
