Colina de Brisas (Hill of Breezes), is a large, quiet, private hillside vacation rental located above the town of Isabel Segunda on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico.
Vieques is a small, unspoiled Caribbean island off the Eastern coast of Puerto Rico.
A short plane ride from San Juan brings you to the pristine, white sandy beaches and quiet Caribbean island of Vieques. Click here for options to get to Vieques.
Vieques has yet to become touristy and still offers the simplicity and relaxation of an island at it's best.
Colina de Brisas is a beautiful vacation rental that overlooks the Fort of Vieques (El Fortin Conde de Mirasol) and the capitol of Vieques (Isabel Segunda).
The huge wrap around verandah provides sweeping, panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean from the mainland of Puerto Rico to the other small Puerto Rican island Culebra.
Conde de Mirasol is a short 5 minute walk from the house. Here you can learn the history of Vieques. See if you can find the house from the fort.
Colina de Brisas is a hillside vacation rental that sits on almost an acre of land with plenty of tropical fruits, trees and plants. On the Eastern side (flat side) of the property you will find aloe plants, coconut, calabash (gourd), mango and grapefruit trees.

Both are located within a 1/2 mile of the house. Free wi-fi is available in the town center - compliments of Vieques municipality.
Every room in the house has a ceiling fan to take full advantage of the tropical breezes. October 2006 - the house is now fully air conditioned - just in case those breezes are not enough! We encourage our guests to enjoy the fresh breezes - be sure to put the door stops in place to keep the wind from slamming doors closed!

The large wrap around verandah provides awesome panoramic views of the Atlantic. Tables and chairs provide a place to sit with a cup of coffee in the morning or a cool drink in the evening to enjoy the view and the cooling trade winds. The long verandah acts as a wind tunnel and sitting on the corner can be cool at night.
Why wait?! Let the cool Caribbean trade winds carry away all your worries, watch a breathtaking sunset, enjoy the fort lit up at night or the late ferry arriving from the main island. Listen to all of the nightlife and see if you can pick out the unique "co-qui" sound.
