This charming two bedroom apartment, which sleeps five, is on the first floor of Casa de Kathy. Casa de Kathy is located in Esperanza, the PREMIER tourist area on the south coast of Vieques. We are a 5-7 minute walk to the town beach and a 15 minute to walk to Sun Bay. We are a fifteen minute ride to Playa Caracas (Red Beach) in the Wildlife Refuge. On the boardwalk ('malecon'), only two blocks away from the apartment, you will find reefs for snorkeling, restaurants, shops, and BioBay tours. One block away there is a convenience store and a bakery.

Reviewed 10 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Kathy has obviously been doing this for a while - pretty much everything we needed was right within reach including beach chairs, towels, AC and fans, kitchen and bath supplies, TV, music and a fascinating collection of local history and tourism books.

She was a very attentive host and even organized a cocktail party on our last night where we were able to meet a very nice couple from Sweden who were renting er other unit.

Highly recommended!

Management response:

Ken and his family were happy, laid back guests and were a pleasure to host. They did not rent a car but took a taxi to our famous Playa Caracas in the Wildlife Refuge to do some snorkeling. They also walked to the Esperanza beach and snorkeled at the pier. I enjoyed getting to know them.

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for two weeks during our honeymoon in June of 2015. Kathy was very friendly and helpful. She was always willing to discuss/provide tips on the best beaches, places to eat, or how to get around the island. She also frequently left fresh cut fruit by our door and other little extras. She has the sweetest set of pets (a cat, Dolly, and dog, Lovey) that were happy to let you scratch their ears while they slept in the shade. It is located a few streets up from the Malecon. Enough distance that is was incredibly quiet but still less than an 8 minute walk from the main street. (If it was really hot we walked slowly because it isn't that far)

The studio we stayed in had one bed, one bathroom, and a small kitchenette (toaster and a hot plate). It is attached to the main portion of the house that Kathy lives in. We were there two weeks and it never felt like we were invading her space or her ours. I can't recall if there was a TV but the internet was fine. Clean, neat...

Management response:

Thanks to Brian and Brie for this very positive review. I enjoyed hosting them. I do need to clarify that they did NOT stay in the two bedroom apartment which has a full kitchen, living room and two bedrooms. The studio accommodates two people. Also note that both apartments have modern air conditioners and fans in every room making them...

Many of my guests just walk to the beaches, bio-bay tour pick-up, and restaurants. For remote beaches, you can take a taxi or rent a car, bike or scooter. Taxis to Playa Caracas in the Wildlife Refuge is, for example, $15 each way for two people. Scooter rentals are about $50-60 per day. Car rentals are about $60-85 per day.
