Welcome!
Cima del Mundo Vacation Suites
The 19 stairs that lead to our private entrance pass right by the pool.
Welcome to the Del Mar Suite landing. The laundry room is just off to the left.
After approaching the welcoming entrance, we turned around-shower, grill, places to hang our gear!
Once inside: I can't believe the size of this suite!
This great room will accommodate all 6 of us, comfortably with large TV, BOSE bluetooth speaker!
Dining area looking out toward terrace. 6 fit comfortably.
Sunset on the terrace overlooking the vast sea! What a great way to relax after our busy day.
Another view of the big island from our terrace.
I love how the artfully lit kitchen is fully equipped. Look at all that counter space!
First bedroom with all the comforts of home.
I will be comfortably slewing here on these high thread count sheets!
Inside the mirrored closet are our thirsty, large beach towels.
yay! Two reading lamps and a bureau.
Second bedroom with 2 twin beds. Cozy and colorful.
We call this the Premier bedroom.
What a fabulous panorama outside my bedroom window!
Ceiling fan and air conditioning - Whatever I'm in the mood for.
Quiet reading nook.
Mmmm, comfy! Great mattress and high thread count sheets.
Luggage racks!  They've thought of everything!
Bright, clean bathroom. I see the artwork is an original watercolor from a Viequense artist.
Delicious and what a view!
I'm sure we'll enjoy the shade - eventually.
Sparkling!
Tucker, the wonder dog! Our sato 'jungle dog' who adopted us and a safe, happy home.
A romantic evening spot.
Part of the horse family who likes to dine in our yard.
Is that an alligator I see from the balcony of the Del Mar Suite?
Que magnifico! Quick morning shower brings beautiful rainbows.
Bastimento Beach-3 minutes down the hill (looking east).

“An airy mountaintop retreat with great views”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

The property sits atop of a mountain, is immaculately clean and airy. At night you hear sounds of nature. One doesn't go to Vieques to spend time inside, but at the end of the day sitting on the porch and looking at the ocean, and the lights of the main island, while having a bottle of wine with friends - that's as good if not better than a boutique hotel, and much cheaper. I would choose this over most hotels. Hosts have been very accommodating, even arranging a car rental when we couldn't get it from the rental agencies (New Year's). The owners have been great and personable, thinking of all the details, providing beach umbrellas, chairs, towels, even a cooling bag. Overall, we enjoyed it greatly.

Dear Vitaly,
We are so happy we were able to host your New Year's vacation. As the island has a finite number of cars, we were thrilled to be able to help you find one.
You and your friends were wonderful guests and it was our treat to meet you!
The sounds of the evening, especially the coqui (tiny tree frogs) are special, aren't they?

“Miss it already!!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

To get away from it all pre-holidays, my SO and I chose Cima del Mundo as our vacation spot in Vieques. Boy, am I glad we did! At 1st, I thought the location would have us traveling a bit. Not so. We were close to everything: beaches, restaurants, shopping. We learned everything was close in Vieques! :)

The rate was affordable and I feel like we got a good value for our money. We had a complete apartment to ourselves. It was clean and comfortable - beds were comfy, kitchen well outfitted (I like to cook), had wi-fi and TV (although we never used the TV). The best part for us was "cocktail time". After our days at the beach, we would come "home", shower, and prepare for our evening by enjoying the sunsets while sitting on the balcony. Very romantic.

The owners live on site and were very helpful-available if we needed them yet unobtrusive. They also provided a nice surprise for us when we arrived- cold beer and water in the fridge! We were parched from our day of travel and thought that was so thoughtful of them.

Although there are so many places to see in the world, we're talking about going back to Vieques. Would love to be able to stay at Cima del Mundo again!

Signed,

Hi Robert!
We are so glad you had a great time. I'm glad you enjoyed the Medalla. It's made in PR-thought you may get a kick out of sampling a local brew.
Thanks for allowing us to host your vacation!

“Absolutely great!”
Reviewed August 25, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Cima del mundo has one of the most breathtaking views of the mountains and the ocean in the beautiful island of Vieques. The suites have everything you might need; a fully equipped kitchen, fans and A/C's in every bedroom, spacious and beautifully furnished living room and bedrooms, a balcony with an amazing view, and a closet full with everything you need for a perfect beach day.
This is a great location, it's just 10 minutes from the airport and 3 minutes from the pier and it's really easy to get around. It's perfect for families, a group of friends or a honeymoon couple.
We recommend you spend a day relaxing at Caracas beach, an afternoon horseback riding, an evening at the bioluminiscent bay, a snorckeling adventure at Blue Beach, and a visit to the fort and the 375 year old Ceiba downtown.
Yet the most amazing part of our trip was getting to meet the owners, Deborah and Denis kind and lovely couple who will welcome you to their home with open arms. Their hospitality and knowledge of the island will help you plan the perfect vacation.
We had an amazing time and when we go back we will certainly stay at Cima del Mundo again.

“Beautiful home, spectacular views, wonderful owners!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We originally rented a home a few houses down the road from Cima del Mundo, but the owners double-booked us and Deborah O'Keeffe generously took our booking instead. Though stressful at first, this turned out to be a very fortunate change for us because we ended up with the opportunity to stay in Deborah and Dennis' beautiful home!

Deborah met us at the ferry, showed us around and drove us to our car rental before heading back to Cima del Mundo. Minutes away from Isabella II and situated on a hill on the edge of Vieques' Wildlife Refuge on a very quiet road, Cima del Mundo is a completely new home with breathtaking views of the ocean and the big island of Puerto Rico. We stayed in the three bedroom apartment, which was comfortably furnished and minimally but tastefully decorated. (Deborah has a nice eye for decorating!)

The kitchen was stocked with everything that we needed - ziplock bags, pantry essentials, etc. And an added bonus was the boogie boards, noodles, cooler and beach chairs that were available for us to use on Vieques' beautiful beaches - Blue Beach is our favorite!! The bedrooms were great, with air conditioning for humid nights. But the best feature of Cima is undoubtedly the view - we could have easily spent our entire time on the patio, enjoying the spectacular view! The apartment is also great for children, our 13 year old daughter and 10 year old son loved Cima as much as we did. In fact, we were actually on Vieques to attend a wedding at the W hotel and moved from Cima del Mundo to the W for the wedding. And we enjoyed being at Cima more than the W!

We travel a lot and have stayed in very posh hotels, resorts and vacation homes, and we can't say enough about how happy we were with Cima del Mundo. If you're looking for great accomodations on Vieques, don't make the mistake of going to the W (like we did!) and instead stay at Cima!

Both Deborah and Dennis were extremely friendly, nice and helpful, and when we return to Puerto Rico we will definitely stay here again!

“Holy WOW!!!!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Writting this review makes me sad. Sad that I had to leave Cima del Mundo. There are so many words that I could use to describe this vacation rental but I will stick with amazing, fantabulous, spectacular and stunning.

Upon arrival to Vieques, we were greeted by Dennis. He took us to pick up our rental then gave us a "mini" tour of the immediate area of Isabel. Dennis was very informative and provides a lot of details to help get you acclimated to the area.

Then we were off to our home away from home for the week. Driving up the steep road to Cima del Mundo we had no idea that we were about to be introduced to the most amazing accommodations on the island. All I can say is Holy WOW! We were blown away by this beautiful home on the hill. I had no idea that the house would be more impressive in person than the photos on the web. You can not get a true representation of its' beauty until you see it in person.

We then enter the Del Mar Suite and are very impressed by what we see. This apartment is beautiful and very clean but the best part was the spectacular view from the balcony. Amazing! It has the million dollar view. What a splendid joy to watch the beautiful sunsets, sparkling ocean and the neighborhood wild horse family grazing on the hill below us.

The apartment is equipped with everything you will need to enjoy a fabulous vacation. It is equipped with new quality items (coffee pot, blender, dishes, towels, beach gear, etc.) which makes your stay comfortable.

Deborah and Dennis are gracious host and were available whenever needed to offer directions, suggestions and recommendations. They are truly wonderful people and made us feel completely welcomed. They take great pride and care in their beautiful property. They will make you feel special and appreciated.

If you are undecided about where you will stay in Vieques, I HIGHLY recommend Cima del Mundo. You will not regret it. I can't wait to plan my next trip back. Thank you Deborah and Dennis for sharing your amazing home with us.

“Never wanted to leave”
Reviewed June 18, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Cima was the perfect place for our large group of friends. Deborah was so wonderful and accommodating, she really went above and beyond. She picked up two separate groups from the ferry, took us on a driving tour of the whole area, and gave excellent recommendations. Both apartments are clean and spacious, with tall ceilings, and spectacular views. The kitchens are well outfitted, and anything they might not have, Deborah was happy to loan. She provides all the beach supplies - towels, totes, chairs, umbrellas, and more.

If you spend much time on the lovely balcony, make sure to be careful about the door - we accidentally let about a million bugs in. And be sure to check out the snorkeling around Blue Beach, especially on the west side of the little island.

The place was clean, had excellent amenities, and was comfortable for our large group. All we had to do was sit back and enjoy the island. The owner was very sweet too, and even helped pick us up from the ferry.
