About the property

HURRICANE MARIA UPDATE-

**We are now accepting reservations as normal. We have been reconnected to supplied electric via the islands grid.** We are offering a price reduction, so if you're thinking about visiting Vieques don't hesitate to send us an inquiry, or book your dates directly!

Most businesses, if not all, have reopened and are eager for tourists, vacationers, and returning guests, etc., to come to Vieques during the remaining "high" season-typically Dec-Apr.

Car rental agencies, supermarkets, neighborhood colmados-(small convenience type stores), and some Bio Bay Tour operators are all open and available for business.

In Esperanza, most of the restaurants along the Malecon have reopened.

The Beaches are still Sandy, the Water is still a Tropical Blue, and the Weather is still Beautiful, currently averaging in the 80*'s

Dos Palmas Casita-1 BDRM for TWO-

1 Bdrm, 1 Ba, Ground Floor Apt. in the small beach side, fishing village of Esperanza. A short 1 Block walk to the Malecon, Restaurants, Beaches, Activities, etc.

WIFI and a Smart TV/DVD.

Perfect for a couple, or a single traveler, or those on a budget.

A well stocked kitchen if you decide to eat in. Includes a Refrigerator and Freezer, Stove top and Oven, Microwave, Coffee maker, Toaster, Blender, Pots and Pans, and Utensils. Dining table and chairs in kitchen.

The bedroom has a King size bed and additional seating for two.

Bathroom has a nice sized shower, shelves, and a closet for storage.

A/C is available in the bedroom, if needed, and the kitchen and bedroom each have a ceiling fan and floor fans as well.

Bed linens and Bath towels are provided, as well as Beach towels and Beach chairs, and a cooler is available for use, along with snorkel masks and fins

In the rear of the house in a private nook, is an Outdoor Shower Area surrounded with lush tropical plantings.

Also in the backyard is a covered gazebo with chairs for sitting and relaxing, along with a BBQ grill for grilling your favorites, the local catch of the day, or lobsters from the fish market!

Steps away from Lydia's Colmado, (neighborhood market), which is convenient for any small items.

Steps away from everything in Esperanza, since the whole town is easily walkable. A car rental is not necessary, although you may want one to explore the rest of what Vieques has to offer.

Dos Palmas Apt. is located in a nice residential neighborhood with great neighbors, a mix of local residents and rental properties.

There are dogs, cats, chickens, horses, iguanas, and mongoose that freely roam Vieques, and at times the neighborhood as well. You will undoubtedly see and hear several varieties of Vieques wildlife during your stay. It's totally different than our neighborhood in the states, and that's why we love it as we do

TRAVELING TO VIEQUES-

Vieques can seem to be a little daunting to get to at first glance, the good news is that once you do arrive you won't want to leave!

There are several options in traveling from SJU to Vieques, and the price for each can vary greatly. When guests book with us we send them an email detailing the options available, along with the most up to date pricing to help them decide which option would work best depending on their budget and travel times.

Thank You for considering our vacation Casita.

About Chip & Angie Hicks

After traveling to various islands in the Caribbean, we knew immediately we had found 'Our Island' on our first trip to Vieques. After several trips we found our home, and we hope to share it with others so they may discover the beauty of Vieques for themselves. In our travels we always stayed at small family owned places with a self contained kitchen for the option of eating in. Our kitchen is well stocked so that could be an option on your vacation as well, though we do recommend sampling some of the many restaurant options Esperanza and the Island have.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Vieques. Our stay at Chip and Angie's vacation rental was great. Everything you could need was there. We meet Miguel at the house and he gave us the run down and tour of the property, he was great. The house had all of the essentials plus some. The outdoor area for grilling was nice, as well as the outdoor shower. Having beach chairs, coolers, and beach towels was really awesome, made packing easier. Location was really good, close to restraunts and grocery. Interior very tastefully decorated. I would recommend this property and definitely would stay there again.

Great place in a fabulous destination

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Dos Palmas Casita was part of a long-awaited Caribbean trip we had originally planned for last fall. We had to postpone the trip because of the hurricanes and we were a little apprehensive to go this soon, but we’re so glad we did. While there is definitely still evidence of storm damage and recovery the limitations didn’t reduce our enjoyment at all. We had more than enough to do and Vieques was the highlight of our trip.

The Bio Bay was a “5” the night we went (with Fun Brothers) and it was still amazing. Really an adventure not to be missed.

Chip and Angie are great hosts and their place is super clean and comfortable. We had zero bugs, which is really remarkable in these tropical climates. The location is very convenient - easy walking distance to the Malecon and a nice market. The neighborhood is very clean and the neighbors are friendly.

We’ll definitely come back to Vieques again and we’d book Dos Palmas again.

Amazing month!

  • 5 of 5

Yes, we stayed a month in paradise! The home was everything we needed to relax and enjoy the island, well maintained and exceptionally clean and the bed so comfy. We loved all the beaches but Blue Beach was by far the most beautiful with the best snorkeling, go way to the end, road 18, and swim out to the rocky point and you will enjoy sea fans, coral and some beautiful fish. Walk to the bakery and enjoy fresh bread in the morning and the pizza is awesome too! The location is perfect and easy walk to the Malecon. We did rent a Jeep two different times but just to go exploring. Yes, there are chickens and horses and they do get a little loud sometimes but that is part of the charm! Stay in this home, enjoy the island and get away from your normal routine...that is what vacations are for! We would definitely stay here again!

Quiet, clean and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay. The apartment had everything I needed. The kitchen had all the cooking implements. The outdoor shower was lovely. The bed was large and comfortable. I have no idea why they provide earplugs as I didn't hear anything but the coquis, the chickens, the occasional dog, the clopping of random horse hooves... and that's about it. I had a wonderful time on Vieques and I found this apartment near enough to the "action", but still on a quiet street. Highly recommended for those who like to get out there and do, but want a cozy home base!

Perfect location, Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

Their were two of us and the property was great. We loved being able to walk to town, the bakery around the corner was great and being able to pick up a few essentials at the small food store was nice. Miguel met us as we step out of the taxi and was great about showing us around and asking if we needed anything whenever we ran across him during our 3 day stay.

The condo had everything we needed; beach towels, chairs, cooler, snorkel gear and such.

Some reviews had mentioned the noise from the local dogs and chickens and, yes, their is some for sure but, with a little fore warning it wasn't that big of a deal.

We rented scooters for our stay and it was very nice to have a secure location to store them at night.

If we make it back to Esperanza (and I hope we do), we will certainly book with Angie and Chip again. They provided all the information we needed and made our stay in Vieques stress free.

As advertised, very convenient to everything Esperanza has to offer.

  • 4 of 5

Clean and comfortable, if you are only in Vieques for a short visit and don't feel the need to explore the whole island you could get away with staying here without a vehicle. Plenty of good places to eat, 2 stores​, and a bakery, and beaches all within walking distance.
