|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
This unique & rustic vacation cottage offers visitors the essence of Vieques. It's owners are committed to sharing with others the Vieques they fell in love with after seeking uncharted waters 20 years ago, and which they knew they found from the first moment they landed on what was then a barren airstrip with only a cargo container for a terminal and a wind sock for flight control.
The bygone quality of Vieques is captured perfectly in the Beach Bungalow. Resting on a secluded tropical lot surrounded by palms, sea grapes, and almond trees, this Vieques' most natural location with its tropical trade winds, front door view of the Atlantic Ocean, and neighboring protected lands.
Simplicity is the key to life at the Beach Bungalow. Stress is simply no match for this relaxed and comfortable setting!
Your Beach Bungalow Beach: For the more active and adventurous traveler, the Beach Bungalow offers a kilometer of empty secluded beach providing many activities: shelling, swimming and for snorkel enthusiasts, a coral reef only 45-yards from shore revealing red snapper, yellow fin tuna, conch, angel fish, and much more exotic oceanic life.
Walk West, you will pass a hundred yards of TIDAL POOL behind a coral breakwater creating the perfect swimming experience for the very young and/or the very mellow. Beyond that is one of Vieques prime beach glass locations.
Walk to the East and you have mellow Atlantic breakers as far as you can see and, for the adventurous HIKER, over 10 miles of Fish and Wildlife Refuge coastline completely inaccessible to vehicular traffic of any kind. KAYAKERS, knock yourselves out reassured that no matter how how far you go... the trade winds will gently drift you back home. Stay put and watch the sun make its way across the Atlantic to a perfect sunset!
Beyond the Bungalow -- Vieques Beaches: Starting with the Western end of Island, Punta Arenas is the farthest, and one of the prettiest, with great views of the Big Island. The Rompeolas (breakwater), for serious fishing and spectacular sunsets, is also out that way. The most accessible swimming beaches are in the Sun Bay Balneario. It is just east of Esperanza on the south side of the island and has 3 very different beach experiences, one of which is Media Luna, the best toddler beach on earth!. This vast Parques Nacionales area also has the bioluminescent bay. We recommend going on moonless nights with the BioBay Conservation group's pontoon boat and biologists, or another organized group. Many deserted beaches are on the East end Fish and Wildlife Refuge. The road to the main beaches is good, but feel free to explore off the beaten path. Other precious experiences are feeding wild horses, losing yourself on long walks through tropical hills and dales, and weekend nights at the NASA...dancing on the strip in Esperanza
Beach Bungalow Amenities: While the Beach Bungalow is little more than a beach shack, life doesn't have to be difficult here. The bed is soft and comfortable with 500 thread count sheets to soothe you after a full day of adventure. There are both indoor and outdoor showers and plenty of lush and thirsty towels.
Pack light as you will need very little here. There is a full sized washer and dryer for your convenience, as well!
You may not need much more than the sound and site of the ocean for entertainment but, just in case, there is a DVD player with an assortment of movies, an ipod dock with speakers,& a library of good beach books. Relax on the huge screened porch or stretch out on the comfortable futon style sofa with pillows and throws.
The kitchen is small but fully equipped. There is an outdoor grill for your fresh catch of the day!
Beach towels, beach chairs, an umbrella, coolers, snorkeling gear & floats are here for your waterfront enjoyment.
All you have to do is relax...
The Beach Bungalow lies on Bastimento Beach -- also known as Purple Beach--within the parish of Villa Borinquen. The Bungalow is five minutes from the shops and restaurants of Isabella II on road 200 (North Shore Road). One of the greatest assets lies in our unique location on Bastimento Beach and in respect to the Largest National Park in the Caribbean system. 'Our' beach has 100 yards of natural coral breakwater for wading and shallow childsafe swimming, ending in a treasure trove of beach glass to the West. 100 yards to our East, the 16,000 acres of National Park has endless inaccessible beaches, exotic tropical birds, and aquatic life. If you enjoy strolling and exploring beach, you can walk nearly 10 miles of beach which is entirely uninhabited and untouched by human development.
