Since this is only our second full rental season and we don't have as much feedback for you to rely on as some other properties yet, we have priced Villa del Sol very competitively. We think you will find it to be a great value.
This dramatic 2-bedroom apartment is tastefully furnished with everything you will need for your stay, right down to the bedding, towels, and beach towels. All of the furniture and furnishings are high quality and new last (this is only our 2nd rental season).
The Penthouse has an open floor plan that maximizes light and views. The modern, fully equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances (refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, and 5-burner gas stove, and microwave) and Calphalon cookware. The living room has comfortable upholstered furniture. The dining area has a large dining table that will seat up to 6. The LR, DR, kitchen, and two large covered balconies (one with a gas grill) overlooking the pool all have panoramic views of the ocean and nearby islands.
The master bedroom has a new, high quality king bed, AC, a wall safe, plenty of storage, and an en-suite full bath. The second bedroom has two new xl-twin beds that can be made-up into a king bed. The 2nd full bath is adjacent to the 2nd bedroom. The apartment has a stacked washer and dryer.
The Penthouse has flat-screen TVs with cable in the LR and MBR. It also has a wireless security system, WIFI, and a cellphone booster. Beach chairs, beach umbrella, cooler, and snorkeling gear are also provided for your use.
The apartment overlooks a spacious coral-stone patio surrounding the new in-ground salt water pool with outdoor shower, bordered by palm trees and overlooking the ocean.
For larger families or groups, consider adding one of the 1BR apartments or renting the entire villa. And if the Penthouse is booked for the dates you need, the pair of 1BRs below, which have a connecting door, provide a gracious space for up to 6 people.

HOW TO GET TO VIEQUES (VQS):
The majority of visitors to our villa take a morning flight into the San Juan International Airport (SJU) from their home city and then a 25-minute small airplane flight on Cape Air or Seaborne Airlines from SJU to VQS. Another option is to take a 20-minute cab ride from SJU to the other airport in San Juan, San Juan Isla Grande (SIG), and fly to VQS on Vieques Air Link or Air Flamenco. The flights from SIG cost less than from SJU.
We generally caution guests re taking the hour cab ride from San Juan to Fajardo on the east coast to take the ferry to Vieques. The ferry is inexpensive but it is unreliable and frequently full. A better alternative to flying from San Juan is to take a 1-hour/$100 cab ride from SJ to the small airport in Ceiba, also on the east coast. Both Air Flamenco and Vieques Air Link make the 10-minute flight to Vieques from Ceiba for $34-36 each way.
All of the local airlines have additional charges for baggage above some scheduled weight (consult their websites). Contact info for the several local airlines is:
* Cape Air (from SJU only)
* Seaborne Airlines (from SJU only)
* Vieques Air Link (from SIG and Ceiba)
* Air Flamenco (from SIG and Ceiba)
You will need to do a web search for the websites and phone numbers of these airlines, as Airbnb does not allow us to post this information.
RENTING A CAR
You will need to rent a car or jeep to get around on Vieques. Cars rented on the main island of PR cannot be brought over on the ferry. Here are the car rental agencies we recommend. Especially during December through April you should reserve your car well in advance, as cars can rent up fully on Vieques.
*Vieques Car Rental (manager Betty Gilreath also manages our villa)
*Maritza's Car Rental
*Island Car Rental
*Avis Car Rental
*Chepito's Car Rental (local, no website)
You will need to do a web search for the websites and phone numbers of these agencies, as Airbnb does not allow us to post this information.
Cell phone from the continental US work in PR and on Vieques without roaming charges. AT&T seems to have the strongest cell signal here, but Verizon and Spring cellphones also work OK too. T-Mobile has the weakest coverage on the island, and only works intermittently at our Villa. None of the carriers provide signal in the furthest corners of the island.
Villa del Sol sits in the country 2 miles east of the main town of Isabel Segunda on 1-1/3 fenced and gated acres newly landscaped with palm, nut, and fruit trees. There is plenty of parking and you will be able to pull in near your entrance. Each unit has a wireless security system with entry keypad. The pool area has ample seating and chaise lounges, as well as a charcoal grill.
Общение с гостями
Our local property managers Betty and Miles Gilreath will plan to meet you when you arrive on the island to lead you to our villa. They are very helpful and are readily available to answer questions or give you tips about island points of interest. Betty also manages Vieques Car Rental and can help you reserve a car or SUV (a vehicle is a necessity during your stay).

My wife Olga and I live in Ann Arbor, MI. Olga is from Madrid and teaches at the Univ of Michigan and I am a partly retired commercial Realtor. We started visiting friends in Vieques a few years ago and fell in love with the island. Last summer we had the chance to buy this wonderful, modern 3-unit villa with a panoramic view of the ocean. Please contact us with any questions. We will respond quickly.
