We will be traveling occasionally this spring and would love to share our home with fellow travelers while we are gone. We have a very large 1 bedroom 2 bathroom house in the Destino neighborhood of Vieques Puerto Rico.
We have a very large 1 bedroom 2 bathroom house in the Destino neighborhood of Vieques, Puerto Rico. There is a grand, open living room and dining room with vaulted ceilings. We have a fully equipped kitchen that opens onto a beautiful outdoor dining area.
We run our own business out of our home, so while we are away, we will be closing and locking up our office. It is a 3rd bedroom, and our guests will not have access to this area.
We will also be leaving our cats in the home while we are away. Their cat box and food will be in the studio. We do not expect guests to worry about cleaning up after them, or feeding them. We have a housekeeper who will come by to make sure they are fine. Both kitties are very sweet and loving.
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 Jeep Cherokee as option at a additional $55 a day, The "Jeep" is your typical island truck. It's in perfect mechanical condition, but has seen it's fair share of beach days. 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.
I didn't actually stay at this location because Jillian had a change of travel plans, but she offered us Casa Elefante on the same propoerty instead. We enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was fully stocked and the apartment was clean and beautifully decorated. Jillian left us beach chairs, towels, snorkel gear, and let us use her laundry room. The roosters only woke us up one night and were actually not a problem during our stay. We had a great time and would recommend Casa Elefante to other travelers.
If you are looking for all-inclusive Casa de Destino is not for you. But you probably wouldn't be reading this if you were the all-inclusive type. If you want to really get a feel for Vieques, find laid-back comfort, and be near all the important parts of the island talk to Jillian. She'll help you out. I really appreciated Jillian, even though she wasn't around while we were there, she very genuinely answered questions and made sure that we had what we needed. The house itself is roomy, quiet and super relaxing. A car is made available for rent and beach supplies are made available. For the price asked you get major bang for your buck. Thanks Jillian!
Casa de Destino was wonderful and felt like home. The cats made for a fun time too. I recommend renting a car (Jillian provides this option) as this place is near the beach, but not close enough to walk. Jillian is very responsive and accommodating too! The roosters nearby are pretty loud, so be prepared to wake up when the sun rises.

My husband and I are lucky enough to make our living in the beautiful Vieques, Puerto Rico.
We run our own photography company here on the island, EP Anderson Photography. I also work for the W Retreat and Spa and Elliott is a freelance photographer for a company back in the states.
