Hector's by the Sea fits the laid back paradise of Vieques. Mary and Hector are like your cool aunt and uncle who live in paradise. They are available as much as you need them and always happy to chat about the island. Hector's is their home and their dream and they treat it and you as such. The views are... More

We LOVED staying at Hector's! So beautiful and restful...just exactly what we were looking for. We stayed in The Mango, the upper level casita. I loved starting each morning on the balcony, watching the animated black birds flitting in and out of the mango tree, the occasional hummingbird dropping by, the horses grazing lazily. We enjoyed taking lunch down to... More

If you want a restful vacation where you are anonymous and practically alone on gorgeous beaches, consider this gem. Hector's is small but perfectly located about a mile from Esperanza. There are 3 casitas in an enclosed gated property situated on the ocean. Constant breezes kept us comfortable. Our casita (#1) is an upper deck which affords spectacular views of... More

Hector's was lovely. Peaceful and beautiful overlooking the sea. The road in is a little rough -- have all wheel drive and go slow but otherwise the accommodations were comfortable and Mary and Hector couldn't have been nicer. They were helpful with restaurant recommendations and general directions around Vieques.

I couldn't have asked for more! This was the most relaxing place that I have ever stayed. Mary and Hector have the perfect place to get away from everything. It is close to dining and has access to the beach. There were other people staying there while we were, but you wouldn't even know it. I'm already looking forward to... More

Pros: Just a couple of minutes drive to the main strip. Solitude, it's very peaceful. With just 3 little casitas, it's an ideal couples get away. Easy walk down to the beach. Kitchenette Cold A/C, though in Dec with the ocean breeze it's nice to open the windows. Mary is a wonderful hostess who obviously cares very much about her... More

We just got back from Vieques and simply cannot wait to return. This property and Hector and Mary were a big reason why. First I must say, I read a review of no ocean view from the windows and something about animal noises with total confusion- those guests must have had the windows closed because there is an ocean view...

We stayed in June for our honeymoon in the Mango Room which was perfect for the two of us. We enjoyed sitting out on the porch looking at the ocean and watching the horses graze. The mango trees were lovely and we enjoyed watching the horses eat the mangoes. Hector and Mary were friendly and we enjoyed talking to them.... More

I stayed at the Vistamar (casita 3), the closest to the sea. To start with, the path to get there is initially nice but the final stretch is a dirt, bumpy and narrow road so it was not the perfect welcome. When you get there though, you cannot avoid a drooping jaw. The view is amazing and the horses around... More

We visited Hector's by the Sea for two nights before going to another rental property for a wedding. We had inquired about staying in February via email and Mary was very prompt to respond to my emails and made the booking process very easy. I'm glad we booked early as they book up quickly, even in the low season. Mary... More
