"Villa del Sol" is a delightful, modern villa with a 2BR Penthouse above and two charming 1BR apartments below. It is perched high over the ocean just a 5-minute walk from two beaches. Fully gated, it has a paved drive and parking, and an in-ground pool with panoramic views.

Since this is only our second full rental season and we don't have as much feedback for you to rely on as some other properties yet, we have priced Villa del Sol very competitively. We think you will find it to be a great value.
The 1BR/West apartment (Unit 2) is tastefully furnished with everything you need for your stay, including bedding, towels, and beach towels. All the furniture and furnishings are high quality and brand new last year (this is only our 2nd rental season) . It also has WIFI and a cell phone signal booster. A washer and dryer are provided for your use.
The spacious bedroom has a two twin-xl beds that can be made up into a king, A/C, and ample storage. The tiled bath has a walk-in shower.
The apartment has an open floor plan that maximizes light and spectacular views. The full kitchen, with gas cooktop, microwave, refrigerator, and Calphalon cookware, opens onto the dining and living areas. The dining area has a wicker table for four. The living area has a comfortable seating group and a flatscreen TV with cable. Immediately outside is a covered deck overlooking the pool with another table and chairs.
The apartment opens onto a spacious coral-stone patio surrounding an in-ground salt water pool with outdoor shower, bordered by palm trees, and overlooking the ocean. Lounge chairs and a charcoal grill are supplied. Beach chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers, and snorkeling gear are also provided for your use.
For families or larger parties, this apartment has a connecting door to the mirror-image 1BR/East that has a king bed in its large bedroom. Or consider renting our 2BR Penthouse apartment or the entire villa.

HOW TO GET TO VIEQUES (VQS):
The majority of visitors to our villa take a morning flight into the San Juan International Airport (SJU) from their home city and then a 25-minute small airplane flight on Cape Air or Seaborne Airlines from SJU to VQS. Another option is to take a 20-minute cab ride from SJU to the other airport in San Juan, San Juan Isla Grande (SIG), and fly to VQS on Vieques Air Link or Air Flamenco. The flights from SIG cost less than from SJU.
We generally caution guests re taking the hour cab ride from San Juan to Fajardo on the east coast to take the ferry to Vieques. The ferry is inexpensive but it is unreliable and sometimes full. A better alternative to flying from San Juan is to take a 1-hour/$100 cab ride from SJ to the small airport in Ceiba (CEI), also on the east coast. Both Air Flamenco and Vieques Air Link make the 10-minute flight to Vieques from Ceiba for $34-36 each way. The local airlines that fly to Viennese are (you will have to search for contact information for these airlines yourself as VRBO no longer allows us to post this information):
* Cape Air (from SJU only)
* Seaborne Air (SJU/SIG/CEI)
* Vieques Air Link (SJU/SIG/CEI)
* Air Flamenco (from SIG and CEI)
RENTING A CAR
You will need to rent a car or jeep to get around on Vieques. Cars rented on the main island of PR cannot be brought over on the ferry. Here are the car rental agencies we recommend. Especially during December through April you should reserve your car well in advance, as cars can rent up fully during high season. You will have to search contact information for these agencies yourself as VRBO no longer allows us to post this information.
*Maritza's Car Rental
*Avis Car Rental
*Vieques Car Rental
*Island Car Rental
*Chepito's Car Rental (older cars, less expensive, no website)
Cell phone from the continental US work in PR and on Vieques without roaming charges. AT&T seems to have the strongest cell signal here, but Verizon and Spring cellphones also work ok here. T-Mobile has the weakest coverage on the island, and only works intermittently at our Villa. None of the carriers provide signal in the furthest corners of the island.
Our local property manager Yaritza will plan to meet you when you arrive on the island to lead you to our villa. He is very helpful and readily available to answer questions or give you tips about island points of interest.
You should plan to rent a car or SUV for your stay. In high season this means booking well ahead to guarantee a rental. 4wd is helpful if you plan to visit the most remote beaches, otherwise 2wd will be fine.
It takes less than half an hour to drive from one end of the island to the other, but a GPS or cell-phone mapping program is extremely useful for navigating the island, as many roads are not marked, even the main ones.
Your house manual contains lots of recommendations for beaches, points of interest, and restaurants, and your house managers are a wealth of information as well.
You must be 25 or over to rent at Villa del Sol (the same applies to rental cars on the island). There is no smoking inside, and we expect music and TVs to be played at low volume between 10 pm to 9 am. You can look forward to a quiet, restful stay. You share the pool area, which is very spacious, with the adjacent apartment and the owners unit upstairs. You are welcome to use the available beach gear (coolers, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment), the charcoal BBQ, and the on-site washer/dryer.Get the full listing »
