We just returned from a week's stay at Casa dos Curvos. It was fabulous! Everything mentioned in the previous reviews is absolutely true. Yes, the road in is very rough, but definitely navigable and actually fun. We loved staying at the casa so much that we never made it to the Bio Bay or even out to dinner in the evening. When we returned from daily excursions to the many beautiful beaches or touring the island, we spent the evenings just enjoying the casa, the pool and the incredible grounds (imagine picking fresh lemons for vodka tonics!), and utilizing the fully stocked and equipped kitchen and grill for dinner (note: before shopping for food inspect the cabinets as you may find many "essentials" already there - Ben encourages their use and, of course, restock). The breeze that blows constantly on the hill is both cooling and refreshing, and the house stayed very comfortable throughout the day and evening (note: this comes from someone that does not tolerate warm sleeping temperatures well). I do not know if because of the breeze, the season, or something else, but we saw only 1 mosquito at the casa in the entire week. The island itself is a wonderful mix of amazing beaches (get to Navio if you have a jeep or walk to it), funky towns, good food, and nice folks. The horses roaming everywhere add to the scene, and try to be in town on the weekend to see Paso Fino horses and their riders "quick-stepping" their way through the streets. Overall, Ben has a magical place in Casa dos Cuervos. Don't miss it if you're visiting Vieques!
A truly exceptional property
First of all, all the previous reviews are pretty much on the money, as is the listing data. What you can't really get a feel for from the listing and photos is the aura/vibe/atmosphere of the whole property (I don't want to get all "new age" here, but the property is an integrated whole - very serene). The house is very well maintained, but not new (no granite and stainless). It has a patina and has aged gracefully. Lots of artwork on the walls - it's someone's house, not a bland rental property. If it was all brand new it would seem out of place. The grounds are beautiful - mature plantings, great landscaping without being overdone or fussy. It helped that the island had had a lot of rain prior to our visit and everything was either green or flowering - beautiful, really beautiful. The "road" to the house warrants special mention. A few previous reviews have hinted at what an adventure is is, but they were being polite. Approximately 1/3 mile of pothole blighted paved road, and then the really interesting 1/4 mile of dirt path. The severe rain washed out sections of the dirt road (that had supposedly been recently graded). 4 wheel drive was an absolute requirement - partly for ground clearance, but mostly for traction on several steep sections with loose dirt/sand. Nothing scary, but its condition forced slow careful driving. This made getting from the house to the main road (route 201) an 8 or 10 minute drive. You are in Esperanza in 5 minutes once on the main road. If you accept "island time" when driving the access road you will find it adds to the experience and insures your privacy (it's just not a quick trip to get that bottle of wine you forgot, but not enough of a hassle to stop you from going). My wife and I went to Vieques to relax - both the island and the house exceeded our expectations. The house and land and view at the top of the island immediately caused the stress level to drop to zero.
PS: Ben, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and has a great network of managers on the island to get you to the house and settled in.
L'île de Vieques se trouve à environ 11 km de la côte est de Porto Rico. Vous pouvez vous rendre sur l'île en avion ou en ferry. La casa est située dans les collines de l'extrémité ouest, donnant sur la réserve de vie sauvage de l'extrémité ouest. Les villes, Esperanza et Isabel Segunda sont à environ 5 minutes et 10 minutes, respectivement. Et les plages sont entre 5 et 20 minutes, avec une bonne plongée en apnée et la natation. C'est une petite île.
Vous y trouverez des plages intactes, une baie bioluminescente, des chevaux sauvages de Paso Fino et du bétail Brahman au pâturage.
