Overview

Vieques Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 air conditioned bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6

Visit our Casita, located on the tranquil island of Vieques. Our three bedroom, 2 bath home is tastefully furnished in a relaxed, comfortable island style. The property offers an array of amenities, including a pool, BBQ, washer and dryer, hammock and, of course, the beautiful blue sea a few steps from your doorstep.

Enjoying the Beach at the Cottage: Wake up in the morning and sit outside on your private patio, looking out over the waves at the islands of Culebra, Puerto Rico and on a clear day, St. Thomas, while you sip your coffee. Listen to the sounds of the surf breaking in the evening as the sun sets while you stroll in the sand looking for shells and sea glass, or lie peacefully swinging in the hammock.

Lounge by Pool: What can be more luxurious and refreshing than a dip in your own pool after a long day at the beach? Not much. Lounge in the sun, enjoy the lush tropical foliage, and maybe read a good book. Sit under the fountain and let the water splash over you. Watch the sea gulls and pelicans fly overhead and spot the iguana family that comes to feed on the hibiscus and sun on the wall. Take a night time dip and float on your back and gaze up at the stars.

Easy Living: Two of the things that our guests comment on most frequently are the great night's sleep they experience in our comfortable beds, and the luxurious sheets and towels we provide in abundance. We strive hard to make your experience the vacation you want it to be with a fully equipped kitchen (to help you prepare your fresh-caught seafood), air conditioning in all the rooms, and an outside dining area to enjoy the breeze off the ocean.

About Michael Gordon

My husband, Mike grew up in the quiet town of Houlton, Maine but his family vacationed each year at Wells Beach, Maine. I grew up in Stratford, Connecticut where the beach was always 10 minutes away. We met in San Antonio, while we were each pursuing our individual careers. We both loved the ocean and can't ever get enough of it.

Michael Gordon purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Michael Gordon chose Vieques Island

Vieques has something to offer all beach lovers. I like quiet waters to wade in and Media Luna on Vieques is perfect for that. Mike likes to sit under the palms, drink an adult beverage while he listens to the waves, and Red Beach is perfect for that. My daughter and son-in-law love to snorkel and Silver Beach offers hours of snorkeling adventures. The people of Vieques are great! The Malecon in Esperanza is fun!

What makes this cottage unique

On the Island with the the most vibrant Bioluminescent Bay in the World. Just 20 min. by car from the cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had an amazing time on Vieques and at Casita Del Sol y Mar. The island itself was gorgeous. The beaches were pristine. The villa had everything we needed and more (towels, chairs, grills, kitchen supplies, etc.). The place was clean and spacious. We were located right on the Atlantic Ocean. There was even beautiful fringe coral located steps away from the villa that we snorkeled on multiple occasions. The coral and fish were extremely colorful. The beach has a nice sandy area to swim too. We even had our own private pool at the villa equipped with an outdoor shower. It was nice to be able to wash off after a day at the beach. The vacation was better than I ever expected it to be. The owners are amazing. They contacted us while on the island and made sure we had everything we needed. We had no problems arriving at the villa either. The onsite management was great. We definitely want to come back again!

ABSOLUTE PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and two sons, 17 and 22, stayed at the bungalow and it was perfect. We took long walks on the beach, collected sea glass, swam in the pool, watched the sunset from the beach directly in front of bungalow and had wine hour almost every evening on the deck. One of our favorite things to do was to fire up the grill and slow cook food through the afternoon. We found the fish store in town on the first day and went back often. Grilled lobster tails were delicious.
We went to Sun Bay one of our days there, Esparanza on another. Isabella II is a great little town. I do recommend that you rent a vehicle to get around the island. We had a great dinner at the Tin Box and went back to Noches the next night.
We enjoyed being there. It was very relaxing. The neighbors and all the locals we met were very friendly.
We are trying to figure out when we can return.
The owner and property manager were very helpful. The bungalow had everything we needed, including a cooler to take to the beach. Owners and manager has thought of everything. The welcome basket was thoughtful. I cannot say enough about the property, its location and how wonderful our stay was.

Absolutely INCREDIBLE

  • 5 of 5
I'm so impressed! The pictures and description of this property were identically matched to the experience we had. The owners were so helpful and connected us with their property manager, who helped get us from the ferry to the property and gave us directions around the island - what to do and what not to do. This was one of the best vacations we've had - beach, pull, adventure, and a view that is stunning. The house is set-up for R&R and feels like a true oasis. Loved it (and I'm picky).

Great Privacy a View, and a Pool

  • 3 of 5
Our trip to Vieques was outstanding. The property is a great location and steps from the beach. The photos of the property need to be updated, as they do not represent the house as it is right now. But the house is completely adequate.

It was totally adequate for our family visit.

Great stay on Vieques

  • 5 of 5
We (four long-time friends) had a great week at the bungalow. We were picked up at the airport by Enid of the management team which was very helpful. She pointed out key land marks and even stopped so we could buy groceries to begin our stay.

The bungalow was great - very clean and well-maintained. There were plenty of dishes and utensils, the beds were comfortable, and beach and bath towels were plentiful. Beach chairs, coolers and a grill were a bonus. A washer and dryer are on site, but the dryer was a bit temperamental and we could not get it to work at the end of our visit. The air conditioning in the bedrooms and living room was much appreciated. The raised patio was great for sundowners and star-gazing.

Every morning we took our coffee and walked out the gate directly onto the beach to hunt for shells and sea glass (the best beach on the island for this type of activity, in our opinion). We were joined by the two or three dogs who befriend the bungalow's visitors. We didn't swim at the beach in front of the bungalow because it was a bit rocky, but we swam in the pool (very nice) and also rented a car to explore the fabulous beaches that surround Vieques. Comments from previous visitors in the bungalow's guest book provided useful information about beaches, restaurants, and shopping.

We Highly recommend staying at the bungalow for those who want a comfortable, care-free, peaceful stay on Vieques.

Absolutely beautiful !

  • 5 of 5
July 9, 2013 thru July 17, 2013 our family enjoyed the vacation at Vieques, Puerto Rico. The bungalow we stayed at was very true to the description, location, layout and amenities on the website. Downtown to Isabel II was very close to the bungalow to where we were able to enjoy the town carnival and oversee the firework show from the backyard. Our kiddos really enjoyed the swimming pool and was very clean. Property manager was available to a phone call and our rental car was awaiting for us. We were also picked up at the ferry and took us to a tour around town to get familiar. It was a big plus since it was our first time to Vieques. The property was very clean which we did appreciate. Enjoyed the drive to Esperanza where we were able to enjoy all beaches in the surrounding area. A rental is a must if you really want to enjoy Vieques, Puerto Rico. I can keep on writing but so many things to say. End result, thank you very much to Mr. mrs. Gordon for giving us the opportunity for a memorable vacation. We will absolutely recommend this property to our friends and family. We are making plans to take a second trip to Vieques and we know where to stay. "Thumbs up with a 5 star rating"

Relaxation with a view!

  • 4 of 5
We just enjoyed a wonderful family vacation at a Barefoot Bungalow! We are a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 teenagers and the house was perfect, although we spent most of our time at the beautiful Vieques beaches. Although getting to the house does take you past many other homes in disrepair, I don't think that's any different from most Caribbean Islands. We felt very safe and Mike and Gail's home was very comfortable, clean and well maintained, with a lovely yard and wonderful view of the beach, especially the view from the patio. The house is well stocked with beach and bath towels, brand new beautiful beach chairs, coolers, beach umbrella, comfortable beds and living space, dishes, utensils, and glasses. The only thing I found missing was plastic food storage containers. We did very little cooking as we ate out most nights, or picked up pizza to eat in. We traveled to Esperanza almost every night for dinner, but we did like Bieke's Bistro in Isabel II. We also picked up sandwiches on the way to the beach one afternoon from Sol Food. They were excellent! We loved the beaches, Sun Bay for the shade trees, Red, Blue, Navio, and Silver for snorkeling. The bio bay tour is a must. We tried to book the clear canoe company but they were filled so we went with Abe's and our tour guide was very good and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My husband and kids loved finding coconuts in the yard, and cutting them open to get to the white flesh and milk. Falling to sleep every night and waking every morning to the sounds and view of the ocean, along with the beautiful ocean breezes was heavenly! Overall we had a great vacation and would definitely recommend this property to friends!

Map

Car: recommended

Casita del Sol y Mar is located just a mile east of the town of Isabel II on one of Bravos de Bostons' little known reef-fringed, sandy beaches. Just a short stroll west on the beach will lead you to the ideal sandy spot where guests can enjoy snorkeling and swimming in the warm inviting ocean. Walking to the east will take you on a relaxing stroll along the sea coast where you can search for sea glass and seashells and spot the occasional horse cooling off in the mangroves. Other activities are the shops, markets and restaurants in Isabel II. Or, the more adventurous may want to visit the bioluminescent bay, rent bikes, go kayaking, take a hike or arrange for a snorkeling, scuba diving or sports fishing expedition.

Other Activities: Bio bay
