This is our third (but certainly NOT our last) trip to Vieques, and our first time staying at Casita Amarilla!
We LOVE Casita Amarilla! The house / property is in a beautiful location with a northern view of the ocean & the mainland! We arrived to find Gabriel waiting for us at the gate and the cleaning ladies just leaving!
The lockable gate (to keep the horses out!) leads you into a lovely 1 acre plot and a cute little house at the top of the hill. A lovely and LARGE deck for outdoor living, relaxing breakfast & coffee and some extra space to SPREAD OUT! A charcoal grill, plenty of inside and outside seating, 2 relaxing hammocks, a cooler, sand toys, beach chairs,towels, etc are provided....
The kitchen is well equipped, but the oven is a challenge to actually COOK in - but it was adequate for heating food up. We had planned on making brownies, but it never got really HOT enough. So, we ended up making brownie pancakes instead! Yum! The living room includes a futon & another sleeping / sitting area. There is a TV if you are so inclined. We're not. :)
Nice bedrooms with room for unpacking! One bedroom has a queen bed and plenty of closet / drawer space. The other bedroom has 2 bunk beds, and plenty of shelf space. There is a single bathroom / shower. Laundry facilities ONSITE! YAY!
The house was extremely clean and is obviously well kept. Gabriel is an extremely gracious host. He helped us with many small questions from what kind of fruit is this to helping us find a rental car when there were NONE left on the island!
We can't wait to come back and experience the wonder that is Vieques. We highly recommend staying at Casita Amarilla! In fact, we're coming back in April, but unfortunately the house isn't available for all of the dates we'll be there. :(
La Casita Amarilla is a lovely cottage in a great location. There is plenty of room and Gabriel has provided beach chairs and a cooler for use at the beach. It was everything we needed.
The reservation was canceled 37 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We enjoyed our stay at this property. The location is perfect for exploring the island. The front porch is wonderful for entertaining & has beautiful views of plush greenery & the ocean. We could not have had a better time & location on this island. So perfect!! Highly recommended!
La Casita Amarilla was a wonderful place to stay; clean, safe, and comfortable for our large group. We loved the view of the ocean in the mornings, the noise of the rain at night and the wild horses roaming the street. Our stay was made even more convenient by Gabi, who was very responsive and helpful, willing to offer advice and take care of any issues we had.
The house was perfect. I took my dog and she had incredible amounts of space to run and play in. The house has a/c but it was not even necessary due to the perfect location on top of a hill with cool breeze. Vieques is probably my favorite place in the world and this house exemplifies what vieques should be like.
We haven't actually met Gabriel, but everything was very uncomplicated. The place was wonderful, we had a lot of space and a great time there. It had everything we needed and there is even a little conveniece store right around the corner.
Wifi is not very fast though. However this is of course no problem, if you are not going to stream movies or similar.
We can definitely recommend it!
Gabriel is the real deal. We were lucky enough to arrive on a day when he had time to come pick us up from the ferry. He took us to his place and we were blown away. Amazing view, comfortable home, all the amenities, hammocks on the porch, what more could you ask for? After we dropped off our stuff he even took us to the super market to buy food for some home cooked meals. He has a good knowledge of food and wine and made some recommendations for us. I doubt he'll make a habit of chauffeuring people around, but he happened to have the time for us that day and we REALLY appreciated it! Needless to say, he's extremely helpful and a really nice guy.
Our stay was awesome. We couldn't have landed a better place. It's right in the middle of the island right off the main road that takes you to the local's/ ferry side, or to the spring break style party side. Unfortunately, we didn't realize that the spring break style party side is where the night life is so we spent our first night wondering where all the people were when we went to Azul's for drinks. We had fun, but the next night we discovered Esperanza and boy is that a place to party. Definitely worth checking out.
Also, make sure when you rent a car to fill up on gas because the island has a tendency to run out. The night we wanted to go to Esperanza we were nearly empty and we couldn't get more gas so we had to get a taxi. Oh well.
Gabriel and his place are awesome. No doubt about it. Book now!
