Martineau Belle Playa is situated on the sweetest spot in Vieques. It is a beach front property with breathtaking views of the Atlantic. It has a pool and is just a short walk to the W. My family of 7 walked to the W Hotel every morning. We did some serious chilling on the beach and then washed off the sand in the outdoor shower and enjoyed more relaxation by the pool. Everywhere is a short ride from this house - it takes about 15 minutes to drive to any place you would want to visit on the island. Equipped with a fully stocked kitchen, propane BBQ grill, and a laundry room (detergent was included), you really never need to leave. There were beach chairs in the shed for use at the beach. The property was clean and the cleaning lady, Cynthia, was so very sweet! The owner, Rene, was available and answered questions within a few minutes. The house Manager (Hector) was responsive, as well. Great customer service. I would recommend Martineau Belle Playa to friends and relatives. My family consists of 2 adults and 5 children (ages 3-15), before we arrived, someone set up a small bed in one of the bedrooms for our youngest child at no additional charge, which was a thoughtful gesture, as we expected our children would share beds. The house could use a refresh - there are a few cracked tiles, smudges on doors, door latch that was difficult to operate, outdoor furniture is starting to show wear, but you will barely notice these things, as you will be outside for most of the trip. I loved waking up to the sound of waves crashing onto the shore and view of a turquoise ocean. In the evenings, the sounds of tropical breezes rustling through palm trees and coquis croaking lulled me to sleep. I feel so lucky that I was able to experience Martineau Belle Playa.
