I don't even know where to begin! From Rosie being an easy person to rent from, the caretaker being a sheer joy, the place being an island dream-house and the fruit trees all in the yard! Forget going anywhere else on Vieques. The place is incredibly beautiful. Homey and well decorated, clean, all the kitchen, bathroom and beach supplies you need! It felt super safe. Neighbors are awesome. The beach is a short walk as well as the Malecon full of restaurants. Honestly, I wish I were still there. Go. Stay here. Its a gem.
My friend and I stayed at Casita Rosita for a week last August. We each had our own room with plenty of space. The kitchen and living room were open, plenty of space and the AC unit could be felt in this space the best. If you like to cook for yourself on vacay, this is an ideal place. The kitchen had everything you would need (pots, pans, knives) and there's a full size fridge. There was a cooler at the house, so we bought sandwich supplies and drinks at the local market (just around the corner) and took them to the beach each day. The house also had chairs, snorkel gear, a large umbrella, and plenty of other supplies you might need for the beach and would otherwise have to rent. It also seems like previous guests are generous enough to leave various things like sunscreen, bug repellant, itching cream etc (the medicine cabinet in the bathroom was stocked). We bought some water noodles and left those there for future guests to use as well. The backyard had a nice hammock you can set up or chairs to sit in. The local stray kittens liked to hang out here and were fun to watch while we sat back there. Depending on the time of year the mango and banana trees will have plenty of fruit for you to pick!
As far as location goes, I'm glad we stayed on this side of the Island. The house was about a 5 minute walk to the boardwalk where there's a handful of restaurants/bars. I've heard some reviews say that you could hear the nightlife at the bars all the way at the house, but I personally could not. The only noises I heard at night were the dogs parking (there's quite a few in the neighborhood), but the sound of the rain washed it out for me and I didn't have any issues sleeping. We had rented a jeep so we were able to drive to all of the beaches (i highly recommend renting a vehicle), the closest waterfront to the house was a bit to rocky to actually swim in.
Booking the house was so easy with Rosie! She's very kind and had everything set up for us. It was a great price for everything that it offered. If i ever went back to Vieques I would absolutely stay here again!

Seriously this house is your home away from home. Best garden on the block with fruit trees & more! The back yard is an awesome hangout spot because there's an awesome hammock to use & the lighting is great! Inside the house has everything you need & the best feature is the outdoor shower, you cant beat it. close to everything & peaceful. the locals were friendly & the neighborhood is charming, including the beautiful views of The Malecon. Great choice for a rental in Vieques!
