We stayed here in the first week of June. The house is in a perfect location, very close to Esperanza and its restaurants. We spent a great deal of time simply relaxing by the pool and enjoying the views. The biggest complaint about this house is the connectivity issue. We have ATT on our phones and brought along a Verizon MIFI - neither had great connection, which was a big problem for us because we were dealing with a family medical issue back home and really need to be connected. in this day and age, there is really no excuse for the house not to have an internet connection.
8 days of paradise on Vieques=priceless.
We are seasoned travelers who have stayed in many different property types and locations; from high dollar mansions on the beaches of Puerto Vallarta to an 18th century converted girls catholic school/now turned charming villa in downtown Mexico City......and everything in between. On its' own Quinta Jibali is something very special. The modern architecture, the well thought out driveway, the landscape placement, the mango tree, the interesting boulders, the inconspicuous gate/entry, the delightful terrace, the pool, vantage point to the ocean/sky/stars.....all of it comes together so well to create a true WOW factor! If you add in all the unique characteristics of Vieques island (food, people, horses, beaches, bio-illum, jungle, history, culture) the result is nothing short of a superior vacation experience. Adventure, relaxation, and of course privacy/comfort/tranquility. The property setup is designed for a single couple to appreciate. There is a lot of space to spread out for sure. Essentially, you get two separate rooms. Room#1. A bedroom, toilet, and outside shower. Equipped with cold AC; very modern concrete floors and tastefully decorated. Simple yet sophisticated. There is something just great about showering outside looking up at the stars! Room#2. A living room area that opens up to the functional kitchen. Another toilet and yes another outside shower with ocean views! The kitchen is fully equipped; nice and rustic/modern. The decor is equally impressive as its' counterpart. No AC in this room; however, keep in mind the natural breeze is more than adequate making AC in this space not necessary/critical. Simply open up the storm shutters (fully screened) and let the breeze do its thing. The grand finale of the home is the wonderful pool/covered patio area with superior views! You will spend most of your house time here. It is a huge area with table, seating, and lounge areas....all with brilliant views! The third outside shower is centered here for easy access and clear line of sight to the glorious ocean/sky. Also attached is a utility/laundry room with an extra fridge/freezer and washer/dryer. Finally, just when you thought things couldnt get any better you remember the additional huge roof/terrace. It has a marvelous view that is to die for! Ocean/beach views by day....star gazing by night! Location. You definitely need a car; while the location is perfection without a car it would be a challenge. Just minutes from the town of Esperanza, but you feel very secluded IN a GOOD way! This location is quite possibly the BeST spot on the entire island! Try Maritza's car rental and get a Jeep/4X4. With all the exploring you will do on the island it is positively worth it! Joey the house manager was friendly, informative, and respectful...thank you for the excellent food recommendations! Michael, a sincere thank you for dazzling us with your amazing island hideaway!
Viva Vieques!! Cheers!!
My husband and I recently spent a week at Quinta Jabali. We were looking for a week to explore, enjoy beaches and relax. Quinta Jabali delivered a "WOW" factor and provided everything we needed for a dream weak. The house was much nicer than we even expected. We found the location and privacy to be everything we had hoped for.
Michael was responsive to all questions I had, even while he was trying to enjoy his own vacation. His house manager, Joey was also wonderful. Joey met us at the airport, showed us around the house and even purchased some special groceries and had them in the fridge when we arrived.
We loved being close to the Black Beach, but the island is small and we had no problem getting to lots of beaches and then loved coming back in the evening for a home cooked meal and a swim in the pool. The outside shower made it great to rinse off from the beach before going to the indoor spaces.
It was a nice perk that the house provided beach chairs and a cooler while exploring as well as floats for the pool. I didn't see anywhere on the island that I would have preferred to be. This home is perfect for a romantic escape. Thank you Michael for being willing to share this very special retreat.

My wife and I recently spent a week at the Quinta Jabali villa on our "babymoon". This was actually our first VRBO experience. Michael who owns this property is super responsive and it was a pleasure working with him on this booking. This was a hidden gem and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay along with exploring Vieques.
The views are spectacular at this breath taking property! This secluded villa offers a ton of privacy plus peace & quiet. Not to mention, we enjoyed the ability to cook meals and make fresh smoothies.
The property manager Joey is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He picked us up at the airport and gave us a nice tour of the property, along with providing some helpful local tips. The villa is equipped with all of the essentials from beach chairs to playing cards. The property's location makes going out very doable. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within a five minute drive from the property and other options in Isabella ii which are closer to 20 minutes.
We highly recommend this villa to any couple who is looking for a very memorable experience and pure relaxation.
