- Hix Island HouseFirst to ReviewAug 14, 2012
My husband and I traveled the "Big Island" of Puerto Rico and its beautiful neighboring island Vieques in April. We stayed for two nights in the Redonda loft at Hix House. This property is truly amazing and boasts spectacular views of the ocean from the hillside that it is located in central Vieques. The architecture is really unique, concrete modern style lofts that are all open air. While you are provided with mosquito netting, you should be prepared for bugs. In the early morning we could hear the rainforest come alive with the sounds of the local birds and frogs, which was a unique experience for me. All of the staff was very friendly and gracious. Every day our loft was stocked with fresh organic eggs, local fruit, bread, coffee, and juices. The kitchen also has all the pans, dishes, and glasses you will need. They also provide beach chairs for your day of hitting the local beaches. You will need to have a rental vehicle to leave the site for exploration of the island. Also, wifi is available in the lobby but not in the actual loft. The pool is fresh water and solar powered, in fact the entire compound is solar powered. I really did not want to leave this beautiful hideaway. Kudos to the Hix Island House!
