I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

Our new Vieques Hideaway - Las Iguanas

This was the winning house from our Vieques Beach House Hunt. It isn't our dream house but it's cozy, feels Islandy, and is walking distance to town and beaches which seems like  a win. I honestly fell in love with it when we saw it. My parents want to keep searching for a home on the water or with views of the water but we just couldn't pass this little beauty up in the meantime.


You truly could move in today and be comfortable and happy. It's clean, its nice, and the decorations don't hurt my eyes. However, since we ended up on the low end of our budget we are blessed to be able to do some major rennovations right away to make it perfect. One huge bonus of a small less expensive home.

The orange has to go - I want something lighter and brighter. The kitchen and dinning room will be opened up so they feel more spacious and so you can interact with those slaving away in the kitchen. When we open it up the wood will become a cool cement kitchen and a better layout.

The bathroom is lacking true hot water (well hot water by our standards, it has this electric hot water situation at the moment) so it will also get a major overhaul to include an outdoor shower (trust me these are a must on the island), new cement vanity and shower, and again updated color and tile.

Other than that we just need a/c units in the bedrooms, fresh paint, some new fans/fixtures, and a little sprucing of the furnishings and we should be good to go for your dream affordable island rental. As soon as we are ready for rentals I will publish the link and information. Can't wait to close on this oasis and start making it ours (or yours for a week).
