About this listing
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.
Lonely Planet says "la finca caribe personifies Vieques". 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. you can learn so much more about the place and save money and hassle if you find our site-- search la finca Caribe.
Our towels don't match. The rooms have no television. 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)

About the Host, Corky & Bill
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 and friends, and new grandkids. we have had la finca caribe on vieques for 17years now, and little hill for four. we love both homesteading -- raising our own food (organic lamb and veggies on marrowstone) living simply, and sharing both places with others.
Bill is/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 farmer...so now I'm a little of each, and very very grateful...
