This is one of our five handmade houses, at La Finca , in the hills of Vieques Island, quiet, private, totally chill, but just a few minutes from beaches and both towns, Esperanza or Isabel II.

The space

Totally off beat -- rented as a whole, la finca caribe's Casa Grande is perfect for large groups of friends, families, business get aways or yoga retreats. The place is huge and rambling, private and quiet.

We think that it's about staying casual and loving this island for its climate, culture, and amazing natural beauty. The beaches are the best just about anywhere. if you want more info about the place check out our website -- (search la Finca Caribe).

Our towels don't match. The rooms have no television, the whole place is quiet, private and natural, and the guests you meet are interesting and wonderful -- from around the world. La finca caribe is for people who like to go barefoot and take showers outdoors. We like it simple. All of our rooms have fans, mosquito nets, cotton sheets and a good reading lamp.

La finca caribe is a cluster of handmade wooden houses -- on two of the most beautiful, natural, quiet and private acres on Vieques island. We're up in the hills; our world class beaches are three miles away -- so we are the place to totally get away from it all. No a/c. No phones. Wi-fi is iffy. But the salt water pool, the breezes, views and mangoes, starfruit, cocos and bananas work great. The coolest place on the coolest island -- with the coolest folks!

We're flexible -- whether you're two people or thirty. You can rent the entire house or any one of the six casa grande rooms. ( see our other listing for rooms or smaller houses)

* * *

La Casa Grande offers large groups and families a whole rustic villa with six bedrooms, each with one or two queen-sized beds and a twin loft. There's a large dining and living area and complete kitchen, all open to the tradewinds and great views.

La Casa Grande has three shared bathrooms, with our beautiful outside hot water showers. The lobby/living area has an eclectic library of books, a stereo, and indoor board games. The wrap-around deck has a gas bbq, porch swings, hammocks, plenty of table space, and star gazing deck above.

No children over five only in casa grande please, unless you're renting out the entire house.

We had a wonderful stay at the Finca. The Finca is the perfect environment for a reunion or other large gathering. Given the open air environment and no air conditioning, it may not be the place for everyone. But if you enjoy open access to nature in a quaint and artsy environment off the beat and path on a tropical island, this is the place for you. Lots of nooks to hang out in as a group or individually. The pool is well maintained and a welcome relief for hot afternoons when you get back from the beach. The view from the deck is fantastic. Bill and Scott, the managers of La Finca, were very attentive to detail, responsive to all questions, and very welcoming and supportive. We will definitely recommend to our friends.

It is an open space, no doors or windows in the first floor. Which is nice for air circulation and the Vieques, laid-back vibe. But guests must be aware that other guests may walk into "your" house, walk into one if the bathrooms, or use the kitchen. So please ask about upon check-in what to expect in terms of privacy

Response from Corky & Bill:
Saludos Angel, Thank you again, for coming to the finca for your New Years stay. Bill and Scott, our managers told me about the dreadful event -- of the other guests coming into casa grande during your stay. That is horrible! At first, I assumed, as you did that they had forgotten to remind the other guests that the main house was rented -- as one private rental during their stay, but even before I said anything, they told me how shocked they were because they had specifically told them -- they thought clearly-- that it was not available to them Please accept our apologies -- and know that this is not the way we do things-- at all! Even with our "open door" approach -- we respect, and prioritize our guests' privacy. We were all horrified. Maybe It is a cultural thing-- that for Swedes it didn't seem weird. I don't know. I completely understand your review It's our only review for the full casa grande rental on air bnb while we have 20 years of 5 star reviews-- and nothing like this happening! -- on tripdvisor, so I'm afraid it will give such a wrong impression -- that this is normal, or okay with us. It's sure not! Anyway, I was happy to hear from scott that you still thought you'd come back. That's great. I hope he offered a discount on any future stay! It's the very least we can do. Gracias, again, Corky Parker

bill and i bailed from the full time work a day world to focus on little hill, the finca in the winter months, our family, friends, and grandkids. we have had la finca on vieques for almost years now, and little hill for eight. we love both homesteading -- raising our own food (organic lamb and veggies on marrowstone) living simply, and sharing both places with others.

Bill was an architect in Seattle, and before that NYC . I've worked most of my life in corporate sustainability and as a creative director in seattle, weird combo I know. But I always wanted to be an innkeeper and a now I'm a little of each, and very very grateful...
