Isabel Segunda, Isla de Vieques, Puerto Rico
'Villa del Sol' is a delightful, modern villa with a 2BR Penthouse above and two charming 1BR apartments below It is perched high over the ocean just a 5-minute walk from two beaches. Fully gated, it has a paved drive and parking, and an in-ground pool with panoramic views.


Since this is only our second 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.

The 1BR/West apartment is tastefully furnished with everything you need for your stay including bedding, towels, and beach towels. All the fur...

Reviewed 24 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This was our first visit to Vieques. We chose Villa del Sol simply on the basis of the photographs that were posted on line. To be honest, I didn't think the actual place could possibly live up to the expectations the photos created. But it did. The place is immaculate and fully furnished and equipped with everything travelers look for when they choose a condo over a hotel. Villa del Sol is perched on a hillside with a spectacular view of the sea. It has a very nice pool and beautiful grounds. It is possible to walk to the beach, technically, but it's not really ocean front. To get to town (Isabel on the northern coast), you will need some type of transportation. Vieques itself is beautiful because of its natural habitat. But don't go there expecting to find all of the amenities of other destinations that have been fully developed for tourism. (We were OK with this.) We were there in the "off season," so many restaurants were closed. However, there were some...

Thank you for the review. Glad you had a good time and hope to have you back again. Regards, Doug and Olga

About the neighbourhood
The Villa Borinquen area on the NE coast of Vieques is an ideal base of operations for experiencing Vieques. You are only a short 5-minute walk from two secluded beaches. Nestled in the countryside next to the nature reserve, away from urban centers, you are only a 5-minute drive from the Isabel Segunda, the largest town, with restaurants, bars, post office, bank, and small shops. And you are only a 15-20 minute drive from the bioluminescent bay, the waterfront community of Esperanza, and dozens of world class beaches.
Getting around
FROM THE AIRPORT go east on Hwy 200 about 5 miles into downtown Isabel II. Where Hwy 200 appears to come to an end it actually jogs around the old town square, turning 1 block to the left (south) and then continuing right (east) again. We are located on Hwy 200 just 2 miles east of Isabel II, 1/4 mile from where the road, which is now along the water, takes a sharp turn right and heads inland. We are the first house on the right after the sharp turn.

Along the road to Isabel you will pass car rentals, 2 gas stations, and Morales Super Discuento. Morales is the largest grocery store on Vieques, and also has a smaller store in Isabel. In Isabel you will find the bank, post office, and a number of stores and restaurants.
