The two bedroom is not only clean and spacious, but came fully stocked with kitchen supplies. Service was amazing. And most importantly it felt safe. Just a couple of blocks from the malecon. Will def recommend to anyone who is going to Vieques

My friend and I stayed at Kathy's for 2 nights. And I must say, it was amazing. The rooms, location and service was great, but having Kathy as our host was icing on our cake. She was informative and helpful. Through her website and convos with her, we got loads of information about the island. We really appreciate it as we spoke close to no Spanish, and were very foreign to Puerto Rico.
From her, we learnt about the protest against using the island for military bombing. Really insightful.
The whole island is filled with friendly people, though we couldn't really speak Spanish, simple smiles warmed things up. I would say having Kathy as our host made our stay 200% better.
THANK U KATHY!

My friend and I stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The 2 bedroom apartment was wonderful. It was clean and spacious and really close to everything! We walked to restaurants and bars, the place to be picked up for the bio bay tour, horseback riding, and the beach (although it is a bit of a walk so carrying the chairs was a challenge). It is an apartment so you can make your own food in the kitchen etc. The air conditioning is only in the bedrooms, but works perfectly and cools down the rooms very quickly. Kathy was super helpful. All in all it was a wonderful experience!!!

We stayed here for one night and the host is very nice and helpful!!! My friend and I wanted to go to the bio bay and she helped us to call the agency. Kathy is very nice. she gave us lots of trip advise and answered all our questions. she also provided lots of useful pamphlets and books with detailed information about Vieques on the desk in our living room.The 2-bedroom apartment was very nice too. It was clean and very well kept. The kitchen was well equipped. We could use anything in it. It was very comfortable to stay in the apartment. We don't have any negative experience here. Everything was just fine.

Over all the experience was great. Good location, apt was clean and Kathy had a wealth of information on the local. If you understand that this is NOT a hotel and that the amenities will be more like that of your own apartment with a local to give advice/additional information you shouldn't have a problem.

My friends were able to rent snorkel gear for about $7/pp/day and Kathy even assisted with our laundry (hanging when finished washing) for no charge.

I would describe her as motherly, and as she does live on the premises yes she can pretty easily tell when you run the AC with the windows open.

While her fan and AC rules may be considered by some to be excessive, they are fairly reasonable and generally common sense. We didn't have any negative experience (we even accidentally left a fan on while we were gone for a while).

All in all a good experience.

Room Tip: If you have three people, you will want a 2br even though studios can "accommodate" three...

I stayed in the 2-bdrm apartment and it was a well-kept, cozy apartment that provided everything we needed with a full kitchen. The rooms have A/C and Kathy keeps beach gear on hand for all your needs. The apartment is a short walk to the malecon and beaches, and Kathy gives you all the info you need to get around and enjoy your stay. Would recommend to couples, friends or families!
