Pura Vida is a 3 bedroom home on a quiet and safe street in Esperanza, Vieques. We are one block to the Malecon (ocean front Caribbean promenade), a quick 5 minute walk. We are baby and kid friendly and also offer a Dodge Durango 8 seat SUV.

The Space

Pura Vida is an inviting home located in Esperanza, the quaint fishing town of Vieques as well as the most popular tourist area. The three bedroom, one bath house is located in a great neighborhood, only 1 block, or less than a 5 minute walk, to the Malecon.

There is a lack of rental cars on Vieques, and if not reserved ahead of time, they may all be sold out. Avoid being left without a car to explore Vieques. Our SUV has three rows of seats holding 8 passengers. If you are a larger group staying at Pura Vida, an 8 passenger SUV negates the need to rent two vehicles, you can everyone fit in one SUV, thus saving you money on both rental fees, gas etc.We do charge extra for the SUV, please inquire and I will promptly respond with the rate.

We are baby and child friendly! We had our first child in November of 2007, our second in January 2010. We enjoy bringing them to the island and they love Media Lunas gentle waves and shallow beach. At Pura Vida we have a Pack N Play crib, child booster seat for feeding (works well instead of high chair), and two convertible car seats for our Jeep, capable of forward and rear facing. We also have a bunch of beach toys, child snorkel gear, books, games and puzzles to keep kids entertained. That is if they aren't worn out after a long day at the beach. We are happy to provide these child amenities to our guests free of charge, pending no abnormal damage to them. We also have a TV, DVD player, vast library of adult and children DVDs and a Playstation 2 with games for you to enjoy.

Although we offer a SUV, our convenient location allows one to easily enjoy much of what Vieques has to offer without driving. Stroll to dinner and dine overlooking the Caribbean, grab a drink at one of the oceanfront bars, spend the day at the park, or experience the beauty (and nightlife) of Esperanza Beach and the Malecon, all within walking distance.

Guest Access

Pura Vida is a single family home, there is no shared portions of the home, it is for the exclusive use of our guests.

Interaction with Guests

We will not be present during the guest's stay, the home is a single family home and exclusively yours. There is no sharing or separate apartments.
Our care takers live a few blocks away in the same area.

The Neighborhood

We love the fact we can walk to the Malecon (oceanfront bar, restaurant and gift shop area). If some people in your party are getting ready and others want to walk down, it's very easy to do. The neighborhood is also very safe.

Getting around

Well, our SUV is perfect for getting around the island. Vieques does not have any public transportation other than Publicos which is a shared 15 passenger taxi van. Our SUV is an 8 seat Dodge Durango Limited.

We purchased Pura Vida in the summer of 2006. Myself (Jeff), my wife (Michelle) and our two kids (Andrew born 2007, Caroline born 2010) are the proud owners of the property. We have put countless hours of sweat, capital and time improving and maintaining the home, which is not exactly easy on a remote Caribbean island! We feel we provide an excellent location, value and convenience with our vehicle at Pura Vida, and many others feel the same. We have had many repeat guests who have become friends each year, hopefully you will become not only a guest but a friend as well. Each year we continually invest with capital improvements to make your stay more comfortable. We've installed an outdoor shower, completely remodeled the kitchen (summer 2010), and continually update and replace amenities for your satisfaction. Our rentals have doubled each year, and we had over 200 days rented in 2009, even more in 2010. We would not have rental numbers such as those without amazing and knowledgeable care takers, and satisifed guests. No house can claim to be all things to all people, however we feel we offer a tremendous value and location.
