It's been a week since we left Casa del Marullo and I find myself longing to open the big glass doors, walk out onto the terrace with my steaming cup of Joe, and listen to and watch the waves crash on the shore. Or maybe watch the beautiful horses stroll by or watch the iguana work on his suntan in the yard. This casa was everything it was described to be and more. It was fully equipped with everything one needs for a stay and for trips to the beautiful beaches. The owner, Barbara, was very good to work with, and patient, too, answering my many many questions. The caretakers, Marcelle and William, were very friendly, accomodating, and helpful, We were two couples staying here and felt that the house was very spacious and comfortable. It was especially nice having the washer and dryer to keep everything clean. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone wanting a laid back, relaxing type of get-a-away. While some say there is not much to do on Vieques, that is the absolute beauty of it! In the seven days we were there, we did not have near enough time to do everything we wanted. We did visit many of the beaches (funny how everyone you ask has a different favorite) and finally decided upon OUR favorite---Media Luna. This may not be the beach for everyone but it was small and quiet and not very populated. We didn't eat out much as we preferred to cook in (or out on the terrace on the nice BBQ pit). We visited Morales Supermercado many times, as well as some of the local Colmados, and the fruit and vegetable market. Everyone we met was super friendly and helpful. We did manage to hit Sol Food one day on the way to Sun Bay...OMG...it was truly amazing! I thought it funny before coming to Vieques that it was the #1 rated "restaurant" but now I see why! We did the Bio Bay tour and while we enjoyed it, I would recommend to anyone else to not go in kayaks--it was not the most comfortable experience for us. Overall, an excellent experience, we loved loved Casa del Marullo, and I cannot wait to do it again!!!!!
