Make it Happen: From $78 per person per night; 3 bedrooms, 3 bath, sleeps 6; $2,800 – $4,500 weekly. Rent it now.

Your digs: Straight, modern lines created with the local building material of choice, concrete, and a mix of wooden elements, stainless steel and careful styling. Every room has a wall that completely opens to the outside. The wide upstairs balcony is great for panning cameras out over the pool party happening below.

  1. Bungalow 180: The (up and coming) Rap Mogul

There’s something to be said for treating your entourage to a good time. They’ve come to expect it from you. With two extra bedrooms, they can be close enough to be part of the experience, but far enough to maintain some privacy.

  1. Seaside: The Lazy Beach Lounger

If Blake Shelton’s “Some Beach” lyrics run through your mind on an hourly basis, the desktop on your computer shows nothing but sand and sea and Corona ads make you drool, this villa has the answer — a beach no less than a bottle cap’s throw from your back door.

Make it Happen: From $82 per person per night; 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, sleeps 4; $1,785 - $2,450 weekly; Rent it now.

  1. Seaside: The Lazy Beach Lounger

The name Seaside isn’t telling enough. It only suggests you’re on the water. What it doesn’t say is this is your view, and your bare toes need do no more than trot down the back steps to be deep in the soft, silky goodness of Vieques Harbor.

Make it Happen: From $82 per person per night; 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, sleeps 4; $1,785 - $2,450 weekly; Rent it now.

  1. Seaside: The Lazy Beach Lounger

I didn't spend much time in this kitchen, but the fridge is no minibar. It’s has enough space to keep a case of Medalla cold, plenty of ice for something stronger at sundown, and it’ll keep the fish you pick up from town as fresh as when it was plucked from the ocean. Bonus: the limes you buy for beer make a perfect ceviche.

Make it Happen: From $82 per person per night; 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, sleeps 4; $1,785 - $2,450 weekly; Rent it now.

Vieques has over a dozen beaches to explore beyond the one at your back door. You’ll need your rest. My advice? Claim this lower master bedroom since it’s the closer to the sand and the pool.

Perhaps the best part of Seaside is laying out on this sprawling deck, where a dip in the pool and a “Beach Bum” playlist only sweeten the deal.

  1. Palm and Pool Cottages: The Harlequin Novelist

The sound of water pouring from the pool’s waterfalls dances across the air, and I have to appreciate genius of design that the impenetrable acid-stained concrete floors stretch from the pool all the way inside. I don’t even have to take the time to dry off before rushing in; the floors will be none the wiser.

Over a fresh fish dinner I've prepared on the kitchen’s concrete countertop and eaten on the concrete dinner table, I've already decided to book a stay again for the following year. Hey, a writer needs time to think right? And this is the place to do it.

  1. Los Arcos: The Dentist

You work long hours digging in dirty mouths. Plaque is your enemy. You have employees to manage, overhead to pay and overbites to fix.

Your digs: Designed after old Spanish castles, eighteen inch thick concrete walls and broad arches frame the view over the pool beautifully. The arches vaguely remind you of Mrs. Johnson’s dentures, and her next to perfect maxillary arch.

You’ll watch the kids pick fresh bananas and limones from the orchard out back, and eat them at family dinners around this table at dusk. You won’t be able to pull your kids from the pool when it’s time for bed. You won’t be bothered, because you’re not pulling teeth. Besides, there will be plenty of time for strict bed times back home. And just maybe, Mrs. Johnson’s next appointment will remind you of Vieques.

Finish your day with a cold Medalla (or six) by the saltwater pool’s edge, eating mangoes picked right from the tree by the gate. Pat yourself on the back for a vacation home well chosen, and an overly tired bunch of kids.
