“The best!”
Reviewed March 3, 2007

I have nothing to say but positive comments about Casa de Kathy. Kathy is extremely knowledgable, helpful and friendly and the accomodations can't be beat. Full kitchen, stocked with basics, huge apartment and great location. Booked another two nights for a few weeks from now. She's my go-to gal in Vieques.

Kathy (originally from Boston) the owner is extremely knowledgeable and caring about the local people and culture. She was part of the "Save Vieques" campaign to stop the military bombing. Extremely interesting and pleasant to chat with and highly recommended if you are interested in local culture and island life.

The property is essentially a larger house in a neighborhood of resident homes. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment downstairs with fans. As of our stay, no air conditioning is available in this apartment. We were fine as we were on the go throughout the warm day and the room would cool down at night.

The location is just up the road from the main tourist oceanfront boardwalk. We never walked though as we had a rental car and usually going some other place as well.

Much of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean have an abundance of security bars over windows. Even paradise has its’ problems - takes a little getting use to.

The room decor is very nicely done with a tropical feel. The bathroom is large and a kitchen area is convenient. Overall Casa de Kathy is an excellent and affordable "home-base" to see the beautiful island of Vieques. You pay for the accommodation and then get an extraordinary concierge and Island champion named Kathy thrown in for free.

We were in Vieques in December 2006 right before Christmas. Vieques was lovely and Casa de Kathy is the place to be if you would rather save your money for other stuff to do around the island. It is only 2 blocks from the boardwalk where all the restaurants are. There is a nice bakery just around the corner.

The rooms are basic but clean. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which is not air-conditioned but it was pleasant in December. It included 1 bedroom with queen size bed, another with 2 twin beds, small living room, kitchen (we did not cook)
and bathroom. The cost was $95 + 7% tax. She also has an air-conditioned studio apartment.

Kathy was very helpful in suggesting taxi from the airport to Fajardo (Jose and Ilca phone 787-644-3091) great driver, new van, good price $65 for family of 4 and they were ready and waiting for us at the airport and later at ferry dock. Very safe driver. Also Ilca speaks English in case you do not speak Spanish. This works out great if you are a family with kids because it saves you the trouble of finding and bargaining a taxi when you arrive at airport.

Kathy also arranged home cooked Puerto Rican meals for us -cooked by one of the neighbors - delicious and healthy food - much better than eating in restaurant specially if you are a family with kids.
