“Heavenly rental. Beautiful island. The perfect get-away.”

Reviewed 29 Jan 2015

I don't know where to begin, really. This house was the most beautiful place my husband and I have ever stayed - and I'd like to think we've traveled quite a bit! From the very beginning, the owners were wonderful communicators and made sure we knew just what to expect. The moment we got off the ferry, the caretaker of the house was waiting for us. He made sure we found our rental car, gave us a thorough tour of home, and let us know he'd be available if we needed anything. Now, the house is truly something. It has everything you need, is so beautifully designed, and is situated on a stunning beach, overlooking the ocean. I've never stayed somewhere so close to the water in my whole life. Each bedroom is set right on the water so you can fall asleep to the sounds of waves crashing. The plunge pool is just perfect, and there are plenty of hammocks and lounge chairs to relax in. The owners provided literally everything you could possibly need. From amazing kitchen supplies to beach chairs, floaties and pool toys, boogie boards, and tons of beach towels. The outdoor shower was divine - the perfect way to cool off, and you can even see the beach while you rinse off. Overall, we loved Vieques. The food, the people, the beaches were incredible, but truly you don't even need to leave the property if you don't feel like it. Everything you need is right there. Thank you for an incredible stay! We'll definitely be back and have already encouraged several friends to book a stay at Las Piedras :) Cheers, Samantha and Mike

Response from the owner Thanks so much for your kind words, it really makes me happy to know that you enjoyed VQS and that Las Piedras met or exceeded expectations. You were great to work with and we would love to have you return. Congrats and best wishes in your new life together!

“ABOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!!”

We truly had an incredible visit to Vieques and Las Piedras offered the best of everything. The location has to be one of the best on the island. In the morning you can look out from your bed and see the ocean to your left and sun rising over the beach above your toes. La Chata, one of the nicest beaches on that side of the island, adjoins the property. We wandered all over the island and enjoyed many of the beaches and did a lot of snorkeling - only to conclude that right in front of the house offered one of the best opportunities, when the water was calm. The location was quiet and often not only the beach but the whole shoreline was empty except for us and a few birds. In many locations we had a beach to ourselves for at least part of the day. This is truly a tropical paradise. The house is incredible. It sits high above the water so you have great views - mostly of the water and the beach. The pool was great and the decks provide a great place to sun or if you get red like me - enjoy the breeze without getting fried. The kitchen and living room areas are on the upper level and basically it is all glass on the seaward side. Its huge - lots of room for people to spread out. You could easily have three-four different activities/conversations going on at once, plus plenty of room out on the deck. Downstairs you have another living area so there are plenty of places to "get some space" as well. Vieques was a cultural challenge for us at first. We discovered my son did not learn much in Spanish class! Being unable to understand the conversation around us or to express myself was intimidating at first. Taking the ferry and arriving about nightfall was maybe a bit too much cultural immersion than I was ready for. First-timers might want to fly in for a little more gentle introduction and avoiding the chaos of the ferry arrival. What was a real help to us was that Jenni had arranged for us to be met at the ferry by a local gentleman, the caretaker of the house, who gave us a quick tour and drove us to the house. He was helpful and friendly and was available to us. I was sure we would be talking often! It turned out that we quickly got our bearings and did not talk with him until he called to make sure we did not need any help getting to the dock for our departure. Jenni directed us to Darla, who operates a smoothie stand at the dock - she was a great help with information and suggestions. We found the local business people to be very friendly and helpful and soon overcame our apprehensions. Jenni had provided us with many suggestions as well. By the end of the week we had really explored the island and done so many things. In fact we started recognizing people we had seen other places. A few highlights and suggestions: 1. Rent an older car - you'll save money and not have to worry about tree branches scratching that shiny Jeep which screams "tourist" (not that we blended in I'm sure!) 2. Rent a paddleboard. They will bring it to you or you can transport it on your older SUV (see #1). It was fun and yet another way to explore. You want calm water. My kids loved it. Tell the rental guys what you want to do and ask for suggestions where to go. We found merchants flexible and also negotiated with us a bit. 3. Snorkle - yes it is a really effective way to drink seawater but you'll get the hang of it. You might purchase a pretty good one online beforehand. You'll be amazed at what you can see. Look for an underwater point and shoot camera - you will want a camera for the beach and with practice you can get some good underwater shots. A floatation belt/jacket isn't a bad idea and helps you float motionless when you want to hover over a good spot. 4. Expect it to be different - don't look for Costco! Grocery stores are different (small, crowded, etc.) and they don't have all that you might be used to but shop like a local and try cooking something island style. We did breakfast and lunches in and went out for dinners mostly. See #5. 5. Go to the fish market (little spot by the boat dock down from the ferry dock) and get the catch of the day - cleaned and ready to cook (lobsters too). Their English was no better than my Spanish but it worked out ok. We bought grouper and grilled it for dinner to the delight of the fish fans in the family. While at the market look for the giant fish swimming just off the dock. Apparently they like the trimmings! 6. Look for the fruit stand out by the airport. For a tropical island you would expect it to be easier to find fresh fruit. Of course who tries to sell mangoes when everyone has a mango tree! Again - talk to the locals. 7. Go to Esperanza early in your trip - lots of good restaurants and some shops over there. Its a little more tourist aware and it helped us adjust easier. 8. Ask Jenni how to do it. She is a pro at getting around - let her simplify your experience. She has lots of good suggestions. Overall - an absolutely great experience. We love the beach and are now permanently spoiled - nothing will ever compare! The house is absolutely incredible - big, beautiful and truly an ideal location. Jenni was an enormous help and has a vast array of contacts across the island to help you with whatever you need. Hope your experience is as good as ours!
