“Breathtaking views from your private pool bar!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed at this cottage for four nights between Christmas and New Year's. It was great! Barbera was very accommodating with our last minute plans and was happy to pick us up at the airport at the crack of dawn. The cottage sits on a hill in the middle of the island in an area called Los Chivos. It's an extremely convenient location as it's about as close to the entrance to the refuge (where all the best beaches are located) as you can get. The property itself is beautiful, landscaped with various types of trees and plants. The cottage for rent sits a few hundred feet from the couple's home, and in between the two is the pool area, which is used exclusively by the renters. You can park your rental car right by the cottage, which is brand new and has everything you could need. In addition to all the cooking essentials, they have stocked it with a French Press coffee maker, local spices, and other little delights. The shower has great pressure and the bed was very comfortable. AC and ceiling fan work great, and depending on your heat threshold you could get away with sleeping with either. It's evident that Barbera and Kris truly want the stay to be comfortable and convenient, because they didn't skimp on things like cooking supplies or the beautiful bedspread and furniture, and a great AC.

The architectural design of the pool bar is beautiful, and it makes for a great place to hang out and watch the sunset after a long day at the beach and before going out to dinner, or grilling right there by the pool. The pool is definitely small (more like a wading pool) but that wasn't a problem for us because we spent all our time at the beach. It is definitely enough to rinse off and enjoy a corona and the view, or cool off if you're lying out there during the day. There are two patio chairs with ottomans, a brand new clean grill, and a large bar with stools so you can eat your breakfast or dinner outside while looking at the view, which we did every morning. One other thing I loved about this place: they built it with many green initiatives. I'm sure there are many more, but some examples: solar powered lights and a solar powered pool.

Barbera and Kris are very accommodating. They provided plenty of beach chairs, a cooler, towels, and snorkel gear without us even asking. Kris built us a fire in the fire pit one night. They even left out a couple travel magazines they thought we'd be interested in. They have three very sweet dogs who made us feel safe, but I could tell that if I weren't such a dog lover, they would have been mindful of keeping them away if that was what we wanted. They also offered to provision our cottage, and having food already in there for breakfast on our arrival was one of the best decisions we made!

The property itself is very private from the main roads and all you can hear at night are sounds of the frogs in the surrounding forest. It is a beautiful and peaceful retreat. It comes highly recommended from a couple who's been to Vieques three times now! Enjoy.
