Casa Dos Chivos
Stay at Casa Dos Chivos and experience luxurious Caribbean comfort at affordable prices. Our elegant house in the Los Chivos Hills of Vieques Island, Puerto Rico, features panoramic views of the ocean and nearby islands from our spacious wraparound balconies. Appointed with your relaxation and comfort in mind, Casa Dos Chivos offers the best of Vieques lodging - stylish furnishings, an inviting tropical palette and all the conveniences of home, including a fully-equipped kitchen, air-conditioned bedrooms, satellite television, washer/dryer, and free WiFi. We also offer a wide selection of books, games, and DVDs for your entertainment. But of course you'll want to spend most of your time just sitting on the balcony taking in the spectacular ocean views!
The upper level of the house consists of a very large great room (24 x 28 feet) with multiple seating areas, dining area, and a fully-appointed kitchen. A large balcony with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean wraps around the great room on two sides. Adjoining the great room is an air-conditioned master bedroom (king) with adjoining bath (with shower). There is a fully-equipped laundry room and gated, key-locked carport downstairs.
A spiral staircase connects the balcony of the upper level with the lower level, which consists of two air-conditioned bedrooms (queen and twin), bath (with shower), large, L-shaped living/dining room, and kitchenette.
Our house is managed by a professional couple who live on the island year-round and provide an unsurpassed level of customer service. You will be greeted at your arrival on island, shown through the house, and offered many useful suggestions about restaurants, outdoor activities, and tour operators you may wish to consider during your stay. We also maintain a visitor book full of restaurant menus, beach information, and loads of helpful comments from previous guests.
The house is a short drive from "downtown" Isabel II, the old Spanish fort, gas stations, and the largest grocery store on Vieques Island. The spectacular beaches on the former Navy base (Red, Blue, Secret, Orchid), now a National Wildlife Refuge, are about a 15 minute drive away, as is the village of Esperanza where there are many restaurants and bars to enjoy in the evening after a day at the beach. Whether you're a family or friends traveling together, you'll enjoy staying in our vacation villa with all house amenities and incredible panoramic views for a truly memorable vacation!

This is the perfect island to unwind and relax. Its feels like the Caribbean of 50 years ago.
Any time of year is great but be advised peak hurricane season is August and September.
The best way to get to Vieques from the main island of Puerto Rico is to fly. Vieques AirLink offers many flights from SJU, Isla Grande airport, and Ceiba on the east coast of the main island. The Puerto Rico ferry from Ceiba is another option: https://porferry.com
Always make sure to leave your car empty and unlocked when you're at the beach.
The house is very nice and well kept,clean and had all the amenities we needed. We rented the top half of the house for the one bedroom option, but it also has two additional bedrooms on the lower half for larger groups. We enjoy Vieques for its laid-back atmosphere, beautiful beaches, and great local food. If you’re looking into a vacation in Vieques I would definitely recommend this property.
This was our first trip to Vieques and Casa Dos Chivos and we cannot wait to come back!.
We were traveling with another couple to Vieques and were delighted to find Casa Dos Chivos. It is the perfect place to stay on Vieques and only 15 minute drive to virtually anywhere on the island. It is a spacious, well appointed home with all the comforts that you expect and more. It is wonderful for two couples to stay, as each has their own space. The kitchen has everything you need to make your own meals when you decide not to eat at one the terrific restaurants in town. The property manager, Renee, is delightful and very helpful in getting you oriented to the island. She met us at the car rental, and showed us to the property to help us check in. It was dark and we were appreciative of her assistance. We will stay there again for sure!
There's no other way to describe this house than "pure perfection". It has become our soul's place and we return year after year, frankly living for this idyllic respite place. This year each morning as we had breakfast on the porch, a very large (I'd say 3-4 feet long) green iguana climbed to the top of a tall tree in the yard and sunned him/herself with pleasure. S/he was our companion every day and, along with the sound of roosters, horses, and coqui put us in touch with the animal world in this island paradise.
Sharing this lovely, wonderfully equipped apartment with (and only with) the coquis (musical treefrogs), who serenade you every evening as you grill a steak and gaze out over the peaceful sea, is one of life's truly lovely experiences, one that never gets old.
