This was our first time using air B&B. We were excited to try something new! Overall it was ok. Rene was a little hard to get ahold of. When we arrived on the island he walked down the hill to pick us up...later I concluded he'd (email hidden) drinking. We got a brief overview, which was ok since it was late. He turned on all the air conditioners...only to find many of the windows were open in the morning. We have a family of 5 & I mentioned we only have towels for 4 people. He said ok & I never saw or heard from him until the text about checkout at 11. We were taking the 11 ferry...so I placed the dirty towels in the tub. I loaded the dishwasher, looked for dishwasher soap, found none & realized the dishwasher didn't work. If I was to compare this property to a similar B & B that we stayed in Rincon, PR...that property was well maintained, plenty of towels, hand soap, small shampoo ect. & breakfast. I wasn't expecting breakfast...but there wasn't soap to wash our hands in the bathroom. I think your property has a lot of potential but needs a bit of TLC.
I hope you try AirBnB again. I use it all over the world. You get a very different experience than a hotel. Each home expresses the culture of the area. The ferry is a short walk from the house and Rene was not just sitting in a bar :-) :-). All of the little bar/eateries by the ferry look like a beach bar. But they serve family food and every one sits in them waiting for the ferry to come and go.
Shame on Rene' for having AC on and windows open! That costs me $$$.I have spoken with Rene' and he sincerely apologizes for the towel mix up. As you had his # and mine, you might have let us know to get on it ASAP! Please, ALL guests communicate to your hosts and staff WHEN an issue is at hand. We are a full service check in and out. Thus guests can leave laundry where they drop it on the floor and leave dishes where ever for Rene'.
We do not advertise shampoo or breakfast. The soap should have been in place and Rene' has been informed. Again, I cant stress this enough. Rene is only a couple of miles from the property..... just TEXT him any time...I need towels, I need soap, where do you suggest we walk to breakfast, etc.
As I too am a traveler, I do not hesitate to reach out to my hosts for any assistance. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE every traveler communicate and you will have a much happier stay wherever you go. No host likes to read about unhappy experiences after the fact, ever. Especially ones we could have sorted in 5 minutes....so frustrating for us. We are here to help....ask!
Safe Travels to us all.... and lets continue to explore new places and see new faces :-)
Gracious caretaker Rene greeted us at the ferry and drove us to pick up groceries before dropping us off at the villa. He also took the time to walk us though the house and explain all that we needed to know and responded immediately to any queries during our stay. The villa is spacious, clean, is set back from the road with a stunning view of the ocean. It's peaceful, relaxing and restorative. Unfortunately there were no cars available to rent on the island - but to be honest, we didn't need one. We could walk to to the town center - which had some great eateries and shops - and took a taxi to the other side of the Island. We had a magical kayak tour in bio bay with 'Dondi', who kindly offered to drive us back to the villa after the tour. Thanks so much for a great stay and introduction to the beautiful island of Vieques.
We had a wonderful time at Ann's place! The views were spectacular from the balcony, the beach was peaceful and secluded, easy walk into town to enjoy the restaurants, bars and a little shopping. The home was clean, comfortable and very spacious! Everything was very easy and welcoming!
This was by far the best Airbnb experience my family has ever had. The view was absolutely stunning. Everything we could need and more were provided for us in this very spacious home. They really thought of everything you would need to spend a day at the beach or spend a quiet evening cooking and listening to the waves. We were two couples, so what a treat to each get our own bathrooms. Everything was clean and cozy. Thank you Ann for providing this fabulous space and Rene for taking such good care!!!

About the Host, Ann
We first traveled to Vieques about 12 years ago and fell in love with this tiny laid back island. We have had our home there since that first visit! We never grow tired of going back there and so as often as possible. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
