About this listing
Our cool and comfortable 2 bedroom house with an ocean view has a true island feel! Casa de Caribe is located in a safe, quiet neighborhood and comfortably fits from 1 to 6 guests. It is provided with all things needed to enjoy your Island Get-Away!
Casa de Caribe is perfect for those looking to explore Vieques and all of her wonders without spending a fortune. With prices on the island rising, I am offering this deal for the upcoming season to open the doors for those vacationers who might not be able to afford the increase, but would still like to enjoy time in the Caribbean.
Perched on a hillside in the quiet, safe, local neighborhood of Santa Maria this two bedroom, with an ocean view, is stocked with all the amenities needed to enjoy your vacation to paradise including beach chairs, cooler, beach towels, hammock, and even sand toys for the kids. Decorated with a Caribbean flair, you will know you are in the islands as soon as you enter the front door or sit on the front porch enjoying the view.
The one bedroom has a queen size bed with air-conditioning and the other has a full bed with fan. There is also a futon in the living room that can pull out into a full bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with all you need, in case you wish to cook or grill at the house. The front yard offers a table and some space for hanging out enjoying the view while the backyard offers shade provided by a mango tree, an avocado tree, and some lime bushes needed on a Caribbean day to relax in a hammock. This home away from home is located in a perfect spot only being a 15-20 min walk to the more secluded north side beaches(good snorkeling), the historical Spanish fort, and Isabel II, where you will find the town's main plaza, historic lighthouse, restaurants, and shopping.
Or if you would like, hop in your rental car for a mere 5 to 15 min ride to all our other spectacular beaches, world famous bio-bay, Esperanza, or our many other historical sites.
We also offer complimentary pick up service and delivery to the house from the car rental, ferry, or airport with maps and directions. Just let us know how we can help you plan your vacation to paradise !!! Michelle, Juan, Leonardo

We absolutely loved staying in Michelle's home! She picked us up from the airport and circled all the of the best places to explore on a map for us. We were able to travel the entire island with her car (great combo rental price!) I will say that if you decide to NOT rent Michelle's car (no idea why you wouldn't) then the price of the home increases by $10 a day, which isn't listed in the description. Her home is about 15 minutes from everything which was perfect for us, as we were able to enjoy scenery during the drives! Her car was amazing for us- we explored all of the places she suggested and more... If you see a dirt path, take it! The beaches are crazy insane beautiful... especially the ones not marked on the maps. We would have been unable to travel around the whole island without her car.
I will say that the roosters/dog barking reviews were very true... they start early around 3/4AM.... but with the air conditioning on it isn't so bad. I have dogs of my own so I am comfortable with noise, but for someone who isn't then it might be a little difficult to sleep. That is completely out of Michelle's control, and with wild animals running around all over the island you're bound to have some noises! Remember- you're on an island so there are bound to be some creepy crawlies around. Michelle's house is located in a safe, cute neighborhood and from the top of the hill you can see the ocean. She has really great friendly neighbors as well.
All in all, this was a great place for us to stay the night. We didn't spend much time in the house itself as we were off exploring the island, but at night it was perfect for sleeping. (Bring some games, cards, books with you... There is no cable TV so it brings you back to the good ol' days where you have to make conversation with people or entertain yourselves!) Michelle was also kind enough to take us back to the airport for our flight home for $10... saved us the trouble of calling a cab.
We would come back here in an instant and are looking forward to visiting again!
Cute and secure, just what we needed.
This neat little home fit our needs exactly since we needed a place near our own home which was being renovated. Michelle picked us up at the airport and we rented her car which was a great help.
We enjoyed our stay and managed to do alot since this was a working visit it was great to have this house so close to ours. Also there are works of art from Michelle and her husband which added to the decor!
Thanks Michelli for a wonderful stay. ileana
I loved this little cottage in the hills. There is a beautiful view of the ocean in the distance. Michelle was extremely helpful through out my entire stay. She picked me up from the airport and told me about all the best places to eat and all the best beaches to lay around on. We rented a car from her and it was so easy and great to have a car and a house bundled together. Michelle was always quick to respond, would drop everything and come to my assistance in need and was kind and generous. She has excellent customer service skills. With Michelle you get a real locals perspective and advice you can trust for a genuine Vieques experience.
We had a great time in Vieques and at Michelle's. She explained everything to us and circled all the good restaurants and beaches to try on a map. We also rented the jeep, it was great! The house is very clean, there is even a little cat visiting the porch every day:-) it s a little far from the sea and the restaurants but there are no houses on the beach anyway! I would return to Michelle's tomorrow!
This cozy little cottage is a short drive from all points of interest on the island. Michelle provided a really informative introduction with a detailed map. We rented an older jeep from her that handles great and looks 'local'; we felt right at home for 10 days of fun in the sun. Free range roosters nearby. Random visits from a cat, a dog and the occasional horse. Little lizards and hummingbirds around. Wifi works great but no cell service at the house. Priced right in a residential neighborhood.
Perched high upon a hill in a quiet section of the neighborhood, the cottage is ideal for your home away from home on Vieques.
A distant view of the Atlantic punctuated by the sounds of tree frogs, roosters crow and the occasional visit by a horse or two are all part of the charm.
The cabin was very clean and cute, it was perfect for what we were looking for. Michelle was very nice and attentive to our needs, and it is a great bonus that she will pick you up and drop you off at the airport. She took the time to explain the island to us and leave us a detailed map. Would definitely stay here again.
