About Jen Gold

We do everything we can to make Casa Ladera a beautiful, comfortable home away from home, and we know you'll love it. We live in Vieques for part of the year, and are very close by in case any need arises. When we're not there, our good friend and property manager is always on call.

Come on down and stay with us, and see why Casa Ladera has been one of the most well-loved places to stay in Vieques for almost ten years!

Jen Gold purchased this house in 2003

Why Jen Gold chose Vieques

Vieques is a special, magical place, with the most beautiful beaches I've seen in all my world travels. It's a tiny island that feels about a million miles from San Juan, and really needs to be experienced to be believed. The perfect palm-fringed white sand beaches, the wild horses roaming around every corner, and the lovely, laid-back island atmosphere, plus some excellent restaurants and fun little beach bars... what's not to love!

What makes this house unique

Casa Ladera boasts a huge beautiful pool, and is just 100 feet (one minute walk) to a secluded beach where you can swim, snorkel, and collect sea glass. The property is bursting with fruit trees, including mangos, bananas, limes, papaya and canepas. Or if you prefer to buy your own fruit, we're just a one-minute drive to the island's largest supermarket! We offer free wireless high-speed internet, A/C in every room, satellite TV with all premium channels, full kitchens including dishwasher and microwave, and more. For beach time, we provide beach chairs, towels and coolers. Pretty much everything you could need for a perfect vacation!

Great house! Great location! Great everything!

We had a great stay at this property! The property manager Renee was so helpful with anything we needed. The best part was having beach chairs, a cooler & towels there for us to use. I would definitely stay here again.

Great value, location and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Ludera was an affordable "base camp" that we could return to after exploring Vieques each day. Even better, the house had a nice pool and a nearly private beach just one minute down the road. Our daughter loved the horses and iquanas that hung out in the field next to the house. Just west of town, groceries, gas and other needs were just a minute or two away. Two of our favorite restaurants, Coqui Fire and Conuco were also close by for nice dinners after a day of adventure. Do not miss Coqui Fire! Renee was available if needed but kept her distance if not. We felt safe when no one was around, but with four units sharing the same property there's an extra feeling of safety but not too many people where the pool ever got crowded. Usually it was empty for us. Amenities were good, air conditioning was great, nights were quiet.

Relaxing and fun,,,and safe!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth trip to Vieques in 6 years. It was our 4th stay at Casa Ladera.Usually we do the Bio Bay, museum, horse back riding, restaurants and what ever else we can squeeze into a week[Vieques has it all!]. This time we kept it simple. The beaches [Blue is our favorite] and the pool [2-gas grills included] at Casa Ladera.

The pool at Casa Ladera is one of my favorite in ground pools. It's plenty big and a little over six feet on the deep end, with plenty of lawn furniture and very nicely kept property. It was easy to relax!! We especially love the second floor unit as the balcony has nice ocean views. The kitchen and and living room are open, providing plenty of indoor room. The WiFi also was a plus. It seems to have improved dramatically since our last visit two years ago as we had up to three devices in use at times with out any delays. [ do your self a favor and leave devices at home )]. Safety was a concern as well. Honestly we felt safe every where we went. Generally speaking the islanders are friendly and helpful. The family that rented the down stairs were from Sweden. That was a treat! The property mgr Renee, as always was very helpful. No doubt because of her attentiveness Casa Ladera is such an enjoyable place to stay. I love the beaches and snorkeling, if it is your first time there, my only recommendation is to explore the many beaches Vieques has and find yours! Ours is blue![La chiva].

If you need a nice, clean place to stay after the beach, so you can chill a little more try Casa Ladera!!! Hope you meet interesting people and enjoy yourselves!!!

Back in a heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

Renee the property manager was fabulous. Picked us up at the airport. Friendly, professional, wealth of information. Property was very clean. Pool was great and a 2 minute walk to Sea Glass Beach. Too rough to swim while we were there but what a gorgeous spot. Gated and very safe.

Peaceful and Relaxing - Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent four nights at the Casa Ladera with my husband, my sister & her husband. We went to Vieques for a wedding at the W Resort. We were greeted at the airport by the property manager who drove us to Casa Ladera, showed us around, noted the best places to eat and shop on a tourist map, and then took us to pick up our rental car. The hospitality was amazing and we'd only just arrived! During our stay, the toilet flooded but no worries - the property manager was on site everyday so we were able to notify her right away. And even if not - I had her cell number and she is very responsive to text. The property, itself was like being at a home away from home. We stayed in the upstairs condo which had so much space and the master bathroom shower was island luxurious! The pool is a perfect temperature and the beach is within walking distance. We didn't have children with us, but there was a family staying in the condo beneath us. They seemed to be having a wonderful time and I'm sure our children would, too, if we had brought them. I have no complaints about this property. For the price and the proximity to everything - it was PERFECT.

Fabulously pleasant time at Casa Ladera

  • 5 of 5

One of the major reasons our visit to Vieques was wonderful was due to our choice to stay at Casa Ladera. Even before we arrived, Renee, the property manager, made us feel welcome. We were impressed by how promptly she responded to every question (no matter how trivial). We especially appreciated her suggestion to use Abreeze/Acacia jeep rental. Renee also arranged for our transportation from the airport to the car rental.

Our 2nd floor unit was clean and had a spacious living room and kitchen. Aside from food, drink and snorkeling equipment, Casa Ladera provided everything (even coffee filters). And the view of the ocean from the balcony was a bonus. Location-wise, we really liked that there was a beach right down the street and a grocery store practically right around the corner.

Renee was marvelously helpful in making suggestions. Every place she suggested turned out great – the Farmers’ Market, Conuco, Next Course, and Caracas Beach (for swimming - due to having the least amount of seaweed) and Rompeolas (for snorkeling). Throughout our stay, Renee was easily accessible via text or phone call. To top things off, her dog, Krypto, greeted us with a wag whenever we saw him.

Overall, we had a fabulously pleasant, relaxing time at Casa Ladera. We definitely recommend it, especially for people who want a low-key environment and want the option of cooking or grilling - should the mood strike. Also, the place is beautifully maintained and the pool was always pristine. Everything was better up close! Thanks to Renee (and, of course, the owner, Jen) for making our first visit to Vieques a memorable one.

Vieques island is only eight miles off the coast of mainland Puerto Rico, but in many ways it feels a world away. It's a beautiful, lush island with an endless selection of secluded and often empty beaches, each with soft white sand and warm turquoise water. Vieques offers charming cafes, restaurants and bars for all tastes and budgets, and a number of fine dining options as well. The main town in Vieques, Isabel Segunda, is colorful and bustling, and the smaller town on the south side, Esperanza, boasts a lively strip of cafes and bars. There are also a few grocery stores where you'll find food and supplies to cook meals in your own kitchen.

In addition to lounging on a beach, you can enjoy incredible snorkeling and diving, kayaking and sailing, fishing, cycling, yoga, massage, and of course the famous bio luminescent bay where you'll witness the beauty and magic of a lagoon glowing in the darkness.

Casa Ladera is located about halfway between the Vieques airport (VQS) and the main town of Isabel Segunda where the ferry comes in. The island's largest supermarket, Supermercado Morales, is just up the street, a one-minute drive or five-minute walk from Casa Ladera.

We are just a short drive to the island's best restaurants, shops and bars. It's a one-minute walk to a lovely secluded beach, known as Sea Glass Beach (or Playa Cofi by the locals) and you're just a few minutes' drive from the famous Vieques beaches which are all on beautiful undeveloped and unspoiled land.

Casa Ladera has the perfect location - close enough to everything important, but quiet and secluded enough to feel like you're away from it all.
