My stay in the casita at Encantada Vieques was excellent. Karen, the property manager, was waiting for me at the airport upon my arrival. She took me right the house, and showed me where everything was. There was a useful booklet at the place with great suggestions on activities, where to eat, the best beaches, and lots of helpful facts. The house was just like the pictures, if not better. The interior design and amenities were top notch. It truly felt as if I was staying at a hotel, in that I did not have to go out of my way to get anything. The house had everything I needed: AC, Wifi, bug spray, paper towels, cutlery, every kitchen tool imaginable, beach chairs, towels, soap, etc… you name it. It is clear that Daniel has anticipated everything a guest might need during their stay. There was even a white noise machine in my bedroom. I didn’t end up using it, and loved sleeping to the sounds of nature but I can imagine some people might find them useful at night.
The location of the property was outstanding. It is right up the road from the Malecon (a short drive, or even a walk during the daytime). You will hear the cars drive by sometimes, but it is not too loud. There is a convenience store down the road as well. Cocobeach is just a short walk down from the Casita. On days where I didn’t feel like driving to other beaches, I just walked down to Coco beach through the gates of the property, and was able to relax on this secluded beach. If you walk a few minutes down the beach you'll find the best spot for swimming & snorkeling.
Overall, I would highly recommend this place. You can’t beat all the amenities, the great communication from Daniel and Karen, and the wonderful location. I am looking forward to coming back here again next year! And I look forward to exploring more of what Vieques has to offer.
