One of the most breathtaking places I've ever visited, hands down. Oreanda is the ideal place to calm home base when exploring all the wonders of Vieques. It's exceptional private - you literally cannot see another building from the property, and the view is EXPANSIVE. The pool area is ideal for chilling, and a little adventure through the forest will drop you on one of the most serene beaches in Vieques (and that's a competitive category). The owners are professional, responsive and they take excellent care of the place. I can't imagine doing any better than Oreanda.

What more is there to say beyond what has already been written? I guess I can simply verify that there are plenty of reasons this property is rated so highly.

The property itself is amazing. With its crystal blue pool overlooking a lush ravine and forever views to the ocean (even nicer than the pictures indicate), we spent a good deal of time just lounging and relaxing in between our other island activities. The location, for those who prefer a some space away from the noise and activity of the towns, is perfect. However, the five minute drive to Esperanza as also great in the event you forget to pick something up on your way 'home.'

Our casita (Verde) was clean and well appointed. The bed was comfortable and the shower offered nearly instant hot water and great water pressure (a big plus if you've ever had a place where you get just a trickle). While it would have been a luxury to have A/C for a couple of really humid nights, the fans (of which I think there are six) allowed for a comfortable sleeping temperature - even in late April.

I won't offer too much effusive praise of Tyler (the property manager) lest he get a big head or something, but, in all honesty, he was really instrumental in making our trip extra special. Aside from giving us some dead-on recommendations for dining, beaches, and activities, he made sure we had everything we needed during our stay.

One last note: Oreanda is what you make of it, but don't confuse it with the W or some other "resort" experience. For our taste, that's much, much better and everything a vacation rental should be - that is, simply an unpretentious home away from home that gives you the perfect chance to unwind and take in island life on your own time.

We hope to return to Vieques in the very near future. When we do, we will certainly plan to stay at Oreanda.

Room Tip: Casita Verde is closer to the driveway and pool than Azul, but is a bit smaller and does not have an outdoor shower. Take advantage of the deck and outdoor kitchen. The night sounds of the jungle are pretty loud at first. Don't worry. It won't take long 'til you don't even notice.

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay at Oreanda for 5 nights and our only regrets are that we didn't stay longer!

First off: Tyler is THE MAN. He walked us through where to go and what to see on the island over beers by the pool and it was more like we were having a conversation with an old friend than a property manager. Awesome guy and definitely a huge highlight to the trip since it was our first time to Vieques and he gave us some great recommendations.

The grounds are beautiful and overlook beautiful forest and the ocean. Just sitting by the pool, soaking in the sun and listening to nature was one of the most relaxing ways to start and end our day. We stayed in Casita Verde which was perfect for what we needed! Very clean. The location is is ideal - situated just a mile outside of Esperanza (great waterfront area full of restaurants and shops) and a quick drive to the most beautiful beaches on the island. My husband and I braved the heat and wild horses and went for a run around the area which was fun, but challenging on the narrow and steep roads.

Only con I would report is that the bed was not the most comfortable, but we also were so relaxed and enjoying ourselves so much that we really did not care! To me the amazing view, great lengths that Tyler goes to insure you have a great trip and the beauty of the island far outweigh this con.

We will certainly be back, next time with a group of friends and rent out the entire property! Book it now!

You really can't ask for more. After a night storming the fort in Old San Juan, we hopped on a ten seat Cessna to fly to Vieques. Tyler, a charming Texan ex-pat, picked us up at the airport. Driving the narrow horse pocked roads with his great humor and local knowledge, we instantly knew this would be an extraordinary trip. The main house (our rental) was comfortable with tasteful decor, however, you don't come here to stay inside. We spent much of our time lounging by the pool, looking out over the "backyard" - a stretch of rainforest interrupted only by the beach. Most evenings ended in grilling and shooting stars. During the day, we searched the (not) far corners of the island for our perfect beach. My personal favorite was Playuela. Then, after a hard day of beaching, we'd quench our thirst with a Parcharita at Duffy's on the Malecon.

The only thing we regret is not bringing more company to fill out the casitas. A mistake we certainly won't make again.

I recently had the luxury to stay at Oreanda. The property is immaculate. Tyler, the property's fearless local leader, is like a Jiminy Cricket that reminds you that vacation runs on wavelengths unavailable from your 9 to 5 office cubicle. There is access to black sand volcanic beach from a short hike originating on the property. Beautiful pool with a hillside view of the ocean. Fruits growing on the premises.This property is perfect for wanting to escape all the pre-packaged ballyhoo, without compromising any comfort.
