“Spectacular views & refreshing breezes for a perfect vacation!”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our trip to Vieques & stay at Vista Dos Mares was amazing! It started when Jared & Adrienn picked us up at the local airport island gave us a quick tour of the surrounding area on our way to Dos Mares. It's a little bit of a twisty/turny drive but they did great showing us the way. The first thing you notice when you get to Dos Mares is the spectacular views. They are truly amazing, especially when you are lounging in the pool (our favorite place). The other thing I loved was the constant island breeze. With the many patios, we could always find a place in the shade & a cool breeze. There was always a place to relax. The house itself is beautifully furnished and very well maintained. We took advantage of the excellent kitchen/dining area every opportunity we could. All in all, very relaxing as everything you could need was available on site.

Our hosts (Jared and Adrienn) did an excellent job of showing us the property & were always very accommodating when we had questions or for suggestions on where to go/what to do. They made our stay the absolute best!

Vieques is perfect for people looking for a quiet and less touristy Caribbean experience. The island is smaller so you're never too far from what you need but big enough to have a great Caribbean vacation. Bonus for US citizens is not needing a passport. We had an absolute blast snorkeling on several different beaches, all with a different experience. Our beautiful sunset sailing trip was also something we will never forget. The nearby Biobay was also well worth the trip. Very calm & relaxing sitting under the stars watching glowing fish dart around. Could of stayed out longer just to stare at the stars.

What an amazing place! We visited Andy'd Vista dos Mares for a long weekend and had a great time! Since we live in San Juan we have seen our fair share of tropical paradise rentals, but this one definitely exceeded our expectations. The location provides for an almost 360 degree ocean views from the house, which we fell in love with. Aside from the gorgeous pool area and the BBQ terrace, the owners have created a couple other areas, each with its own character, which we totally enjoyed. The home is furnished tastefully and with great attention to detail. Not only we did not miss anything, but it felt like a lot of extra effort was spent to make sure every item contributes to the beauty of the place.
The managers of the property were punctual, helpful and professional... just what we needed .. nothing more and nothing less.
Overall, we consider this a great find.

“Marvelously Relaxing Experience. Uplifting!”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Staying at Dos Mares was a marvelously relaxing experience! We are very happy to have spent a special family birthday weekend in such an uplifting place. The spacious home has lovely views of sea, sky and islands. It is equipped with everything needed and more. We cooked plenty of meals in the comfortable kitchen. It was great to enjoy the resort-like pool area for breakfast, amazing sunset views, and of course... just hanging out at the pool. We also enjoyed the BBQ area and the terrace on the east side of the home, which is where we had our dinners. Our daughter loved being able to take a hot shower in the outdoor shower by the pool everyday after splashing and swimming in the pool :) The managers of the property, Adrienn & Jared are lovely and very professional people. I can't wait to have another celebratory occasion to justify staying at Dos Mares again. In the meantime, we have pictures to cherish the lovely time spent there.

“Paradise within Paradise”
Reviewed 17 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My wife and I stayed at Vista Does Mares for 10 days, and every single one of them was spectacular. Isla de Vieques is an incredibly beautiful place, from the bioluminescence of Mosquito Bay, to the volcanic sands of Playa Negra—and even so, we occasionally had a hard time tearing ourselves away from the comforts of the house. Likewise, the food on Vieques is varied and excellent, but more than a few nights we stayed in and grilled and blended up cocktails with fresh fruits and good, cheap Caribbean rum.

Vista Does Mares sits on one of the highest points on Vieques, and you really can see both seas, both sides of the island, from inside the house and from the wrap-around veranda. The pool is something to behold, offering privacy while also opening onto a view of the lush hills that roll down to the beach. And there's air conditioning, but we never turned it on once, so effective (not to mention soothing) were the breezes blowing through.

Adrienn greeted us at the airport, and she and Jared made our stay that much lovelier. They take great care of the house, they're great people all around, and they know the island like the back of their hands (and not incidentally, pretty much everybody on the island knows and loves them, too).

In short, we really cannot recommend Vista Does Mares highly enough if you're planning a trip to Vieques. It was an absolute joy, and we'll undoubtedly be back!

“Your Own Five-Star Resort”
Reviewed 16 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

For my third consecutive yearly trip to Vieques, I decided to treat myself to a first-class, no-holds-barred Caribbean experience. And that is exactly what I and five friends got at Vista Dos Mares! Andy, Michael & Co. have thought of everything to make your stay perfect, right down to the cold bottle of wine waiting in the fridge after a long journey.

The house is a dream and the views of the seas are stunning. Every detail is lovingly attended to, from the pool towels and bedding to the incredibly well-equipped kitchen, from the lovely tableware to the excellent beach chairs. The artwork in the house, mostly by Caribbean artists, deserves a review of its own. Everywhere the eye lands there is something beautiful and delightful to see.

The pool area is spectacular but an added bonus is how gorgeously lit it is at night (and the great sound system). Dining at the teak and stainless table by candlelight, with the stars above and the tropical plantings lit all around us, was unforgettable. And everyone was thrilled with their rooms. The one-bedroom apartment and the studio, which are located beneath the main house, are exquisitely designed and appointed. And there is a "hidden" deck below the pool area (not pictured) that has a giant hammock, a fourth outdoor table and chairs, and a comfortable seating area. It's a great place to catch the late afternoon sun and enjoy pre-sunset cocktails.

The giant outdoor shower is another great feature, as is the barbecue terrace, with its own table, chairs and comfy sitting area . . . with gorgeous views of the Bio Bay and the Caribbean. Every appliance was in tiptop shape, and the A/C worked well throughout the house; although the breezes made it unnecessary, some opted to close their windows and pump the A/C to drown out the island's legendary rooster population. Others adapted!

Vista Dos Mares is the perfect place to stay while getting to know Vieques, a magical tropical island free of tourist hordes, cruise ships, and large-scale resorts, and replete with deserted white-crescent beaches, forest-canopied roads, stunning reefs and wildlife (oh, the sea turtles!). It's simply the Caribbean at its unspoiled best.
