Our family if 3 adults stayed at the Casa de Kathy's 2-bedroom apartment for 4 nights. Kathy, the owner, was wonderful both before and during our stay. She sent us advance advice for transportation to her place from the Vieques airport, and she greeted us with lots of local information and advice when we arrived. During our stay, she brought us home-made rice pudding with a Caribbean accent as well as banana smoothies -- what a nice, personal touch! The apartment is on the ground floor of Kathy's 2-story house (she lives in the 2nd story) on a residential street about a 7-minute walk back from the Malecon in Esperanza. We had rented a jeep for our Vieques stay (which we highly recommend to all visitors to Vieques) so we didn't need to walk back and forth and the location of the Casa de Kathy was fine for us. We could park on the street right in front of Kathy's house. The apartment was impeccably clean, well furnished and equipped, and attractive. We loved the large trove of books, pamphlets, maps, etc on Vieques, the huge bathroom, and all of the beach equipment (towels, cooler, beach chairs, beach umbrella) that Kathy supplied for free. We also rented snorkel equipment from Kathy for a very reasonable price (much cheaper than local rental shops). The air conditioning units in the 2 bedrooms were very efficient. Please note that the living room, kitchen, and bathroom are not air conditioned, but they have very good fans that did a fine job cooling the place to a reasonable temperature with the east and west-facing windows open. Although daytime temps were quite high outside, the humidity was low while we were in Vieques, but visitors in more humid seasons might well consider the lack of A/C in the non-bedroom areas a significant minus. But, all in all, we tremendously enjoyed our stay at Casa de Kathy and would highly recommend it to all!
