Thanks for looking. We have a large 1 bedroom apartment. With a nice kitchen, living room and two private rooftop patios. The Apartment is exquisitely decorated with an array of items from around the world. There is a Queen size bed in the master bedroom, and a full size bed in the sleeping nook. This apartment will comfortably sleep 4 people.The living space is well over 1500 sq feet.
The Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need to cook for yourself. The Fridge tends to want to pop open on its own, so we put a stick through the handles to make sure it stays closed. It works perfectly otherwise.
We have recently added a flat screen TV with a DVD Player and a Roku Media player that gives guests access to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. We do provide a excellent internet connection.
There is no Air Conditioning, but the tradewinds, ceiling and box fans keep the air cool and moving. The Apartment has it's own private gate, parking and entrance. Our property sits on 1 acre of fenced grassland and jungle in the Destino neighborhood. Destino is a 5 minute drive from the main town of Isabel Segundo. It is also 5 minutes to the main entrance of the wildlife refuge, which holds the majority of Vieques pristine beaches.
A rental car is highly recommended as Vieques has no public transportation and our property is far from any restaurants or other conveniences. We offer our own 2001 Mitsubishi Nativa as option at a additional $55 a day, which is $10 cheaper than and of the rental agencies budget options. The "Tiva" is your typical island truck. It's in perfect mechanical condition, but has seen it's fair share of beach days. The back hatch has been a little sticky and difficult to open lately. It is one of those "wiggle the handle just right" situations. It's really perfect, if you were driving around one of the brand new candy colored jeep's, you just scream "TOURIST!!" The car comes with 2 beach chairs, a cooler and a umbella. If you do decide to use our rental car, we would be happy to pick you up from the ferry or the airport and bring you to the property. Otherwise, we will of course provide detailed directions
If you are planning on spending time in Old San Jaun, or are trying to figure out the best way to get to the ferry we are happy to help arrange a taxi. A one way taxi ride from the airport or Old San Juan to the ferry is $65. Ceasar is our go to taxi driver, and I would be happy to put you in touch with him. If staying in Old San Juan, I always send my guests to the same fabulous apartment on Calle De Las Monjas. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/631676 It is one of the few waterfront properties in Old San Juan, with fabulous views of the Governors mansion and the harbor. Let me know if you would like info about staying there.
We do have a housekeeper who cleans on Mondays and Wednesdays. Feel free to leave your laundry and dishes out, and she will be happy to come in and straighten up for you.
Check in time is usually 3PM and check out is 11, but we try to be flexible. If now one else is arriving or leaving, then it doesnt matter to much.
A quick note about our cancellation policy. We maintain a strict cancellation policy in a attempt to keep costs down for all travelers. We consider our rental to be a beautiful space at a reasonable price compared to other properties in Vieques. Throw in complimentary housekeeping and laundry, and exclusive access to a rental car, and our guests really come out ahead. I know things happen, and our guest have un-expected circumstances that delay vacations ect. Unfortunately if you need to cancel less than 7 days before you arrive, we cannot offer any refunds. It's un-likely that the apartment will book last minute, we as hosts will loose out on the income, and we will be forced to raise prices. Please, help us keep costs low!

lovely place, lovely people & lovely island! Such privacy and yet always available for quick island tips. The private car rental definitely made all the difference too. Thanks Jillian and Elliott!

Awesome house!! My boyfriend and I had a blast and Jillian was a great host! We are definitely staying there again in the future! :)
Jilliam was a wonderful host, who made our vacation to Vieques so easy. Jillian brought us to and from the airport, which was greatly appreciated. We rented her car in addition to the house which was extremely convenient and was one of the reason's we chose this rental. The house was clean and spacious and it included all the beach gear we needed. I would highly recommend Casa Elefante. It was exactly the vacation we wanted.
We loved our stay at Jillian's apartment. It's in a very nice spot of the island, away from every tourism or commercialism you can ever imagine, so make sure to have a car to get around. Also, renting Jillian's Mitsubishi is highly recommended :) The apartment has plenty of space, is nicely furnished and has everything that you could need. Looking forward to come back!
We loved it. Nice and cozy country apartment. Close to both most important towns in Vieques. Specially I enjoyed waking up with the roosters in the morning, it was like waking up in my grandparent house when I was a child. I would love to come back. Jillian was a great host, easy to communicate with and very understanding and helpful.
Jillian arranged both rides from and to the airport. We rented her car, which was great on the island. The house is very close to the Refuge (where the best beaches are) and Isabel II center. It's a good, affordable place to stay.
Our stay was amazing, Jillian and Elliot were delightful, picking us up and dropping us off at the beginning and the end of our stay. The house itself is beautiful, a perfect place to explore the whole of Vieques from. We rented their car and had so much fun driving the length and breadth of the island, exploring the most remote and incredible beaches. The house is also perfect to cook and hang out on a rainy day or a quiet evening. Jillian and Elliot are in the know of the best places to eat and visit (on the way to the house we drove through an organic farm where we were able to buy unbelievable vegetables). Food options on Vieques may seem limited but are definitely not - we would recommend the Sol Food van and El Resuelve for lunch, and Tin Box restaurant for dinner. We look forward to coming back and will definitely stay at Casa Elefante again. Thank you for everything!
Jillian is a good soul. She picked us up at the ferry and brought us to Casa Elefante while giving us the gist of the Vieques lifestyle and suggestions for great places to eat. One of the deciding factors for choosing this home was 'Tiva' their beach car that is available to rent. We were able to blend in with the locals and maneuver the muddy pot-hole filled trails of the wildlife refuge. Vieques was a magical place and Jillian was a fantastic host. We'd LOVE to stay here again.
This is a great place to stay - Jillian was lovely, very responsive and came to pick us up at the airport when we arrived. We rented her truck while we were there which was perfect (you need a car on the island), and could get everywhere very easily from her place. As with most places in Vieques, there was quite a bit of noise from the roosters outside, but we got used to this after the first couple of nights. The house is huge and really cosy, highly recommended!
