We loved the property and had a great time at Vieques. Seaclusion was just as advertised. We hope to visit both Vieques and Seaclusion again soon!
Seaclusion is only a few minutes to Isabell II (groceries, ferry, restaurants, bars, services, and a few shops) and a few minutes to Esperanza (restaurants, bars, views, and a few shops). It is also only a short drive to the many beautiful beaches on Vieques. It is not close to the water, but its perch high on a hill provides a nice view over forests to three bays (the bioluminscent bay, Barracuda Bay, and Sunbay) on the south coast of Vieques and to the Caribbean beyond the coast. We really enjoyed the views and had fun watching birds from the nice bench that they have placed just beyond the patio. We had a steady cooling breeze and virtually no bugs.
The landscaping is beautifully done (palm trees, flowering shrubs, and other plants) and the home's island décor is fun. The layout of the house provides good cooling and fresh air. We love to cook and the kitchen was well equipped. We had many nice meals on the patio looking toward the water. If you like to cook, don't miss the farmers' market on Route 201, nice vegetables and fruit .... Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The ice machine in the freezer worked well and we filled our small cooler from it each day before heading out to explore the island. It was great to have beach chairs available, too. The owners provide a folder with maps, property instructions, and other helpful information. Seaclusion is perfect for couples, but it also has extra sleeping capability provided by a futon in the living area. This would allow flexibility, if needed for families.
We highly recommend Seaclusion and hope to return sometime soon!
Lovely well appointed, comfortable and spotless home -- comfortable bed & furnishings, kitchen with everything you need, everything is in great shape. Home is everything the owners describe, and the pictures of the view don't even do it justice. Patio is where you sit with your coffee in the morning, wine in the evening to watch the sky and Caribbean sea. You can see the biobay from the patio, which is also a nice evening excursion. You can rent your car from owners/caretaker - who will get you at the airport, saving time and any inconvenience.
The views are priceless - from up on the hill - but a relatively close and easy drive to town and area beaches - though none of the roads on vieques are easy and the best beaches are down long rocky roads.
The beaches are beautiful, colorful towns, good restaurants, decent local markets. This is a rural island, and the home is in a local neighborhood - feels very private with nice property and a lovely garden. roosters, horses abound nearby -- if you want 5-star service with lots of people around and room service- this is not it. If you want relaxation, this is it.
Snorkeling is wonderful at LaChiva beach - just have to swim out to the cay for the best snorkeling.
Homeowners are very attentive if you need something -we would return and definitely recommend.

Booked Seaclusion easily for a last minute getaway. Beautiful view from well-maintained house and garden overlooking Atlantic Ocean. Pictures don't do it justice. Great breezes coming up the hill the entire stay. Not sure if its always like that, but kept us mosquito-free and extremely comfortable. House is small, but clean and very well stocked. Delighted to have little extras like blender, beach chairs, and washer and dryer. Bed and bath were clean and comfy. Really can't think of anything to complain about. We usually lead a very active vacation schedule, but found ourselves relaxing a lot more and enjoying the view.

Seclusion helped make our Vieques vacation perfect! Come to this beautiful hilltop bungalow with lovely outdoor patio, big yard and views all the way to the ocean. If you're anything like us, you won't want to leave.
Plusses: clean, cute, secure, helpful and friendly service, completely furnished with full kitchen, cooler and beach chairs for your use, washer and dryer, helpful tips and local info, basically, everything we needed. The house has lots of windows and is light and airy. You have privacy, but are in the middle of a neighborhood, and 5 minutes from both Isabel and Esperanza, the grocery store, gas station, bio bay, amazing beaches.
Minusses: Honestly I have a hard time thinking of any. If you are a COMPLETE and total nervous nellie, the driveway might be a little steep for you. But how else are you going to get the great hilltop views?
I don't even know if there is wi-fi since I was too busy relaxing to even open up the computer. We
