TRANQUILITY BY THE SEA

Vieques Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

'Tranquility by the Sea' is a bright and breezy cottage completely equipped with everything you will need to make your stay comfortable and care free. This cottage offers a secluded one acre providing you with ocean view and sounds of surf. The cottage has high ceilings which are all fanned. Our wide wrap around veranda is a favorite shady spot to relax and experience the trade winds that are ever present. There's lots of seating and tables for dining outdoors there. We enjoy the many birds that live in the preserve behind the cottage who make daily visits to the lily pond in the front yard.

The protected wild life preserve is also home to large iguanas who live in the trees and forage in the gardens. If you like hummingbirds - you are in the right place. A long stretch of sandy beach where you can walk a mile - is just a 3 minute walk away and it is great for long walks and scavenging for beach glass - - and there is plenty for all. If you enjoy wild horses - you can get up close as they forage in the fields by the cottage. Isabel Segunda is just a 25 minute walk or a 3 minute drive.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We love this place. The weather was spot on perfect, the house was charming and comfortable, the view from the porch breathtaking. We enjoyed seeing the horses, dogs, cats, chickens, iguanas, egrets, pelicans, mongoose and assorted small birds around the area. There are few things more relaxing than having morning coffee on the veranda and watching the pelicans fish for breadfast. Marcel and
William met us at the Vieques airport, took us to the car rental and the house. Along the way they oriented us to the small island for shopping, post office, grocery, farmers market, fish market, etc. Most helpfull.

The beaches are superb on Vieques. White sand, clear blue water and uncrowded.
perfect for a quiet family vacation.

Awesome Vacation at Tranquility by the Sea

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 just spent a week at 'Tranquility by the Sea'. The cottage suited our family perfectly as our adult children stayed in the bedrooms in the main cottage while my husband and I stated in the private casita. The cottage amenities, cleanliness and security exceeded our expectations. We ate most of our meals on the spacious veranda facing the Atlantic. It was nice to have access to a charcoal grill for our cooking. We enjoyed visits from geckos, egrets, the occasional stray dog and meandering horses. Most mornings, we would take a walk to the nearby beach, (a 5 minute walk including stops for photos). The landscaped yard had several flowers and shrubs in bloom, including bougainvillea, hibiscus and water lilies, which made for a nice background for family pictures. We live in a rather remote area (we also raise chickens), so it was nice to be outside of town with the sound of the surf, the roosters and the occasional barking dog making us feel at home. We visited most of the beaches on Vieques, several more than once, snorkeled/swam and did a lot of sightseeing. Kayaking the biobay is a must...absolutely breathtaking. Some days it seemed like we drove back and forth across the island several times but there was always something new to discover. We ate at several restaurants in Esperanza and did all of our grocery shopping in Isabel, including the farmers market. The locals were very helpful. The weather was gorgeous with highs in the 80's and lows in the upper 70's and no rain to speak of. We would love to return someday. Thank you.

I want to go back!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have returned from a fabulous week at this cottage only 10 days ago. When we were leaving, I promised Gloria, the owner, that I would write a review for her. I am almost sorry I did because I am in complete agreement with the previous reviewer from New York - I hate to tell how great this place is for fear of it booking up and not being available! I can ditto everything that reviewer said. The cottage is clean, roomy and is equipped with everything one needs to enjoy a week's vacation. We were a party of 7 - my husband and I and our 4 kids plus one significant othe,r ranging in age from 26 down to 11. There was an inflatable mattress for our 11 year old but honestly the futon in the living room would serve as a more comfortable bed for a bigger person. We had plenty of space and everything we needed. One caveat - there is no oven in the kitchen (there is a large toaster oven) but that made no difference to us. We preferred to use the grill to cook dinner and did not miss the oven at all. We loved the beautiful grounds, the wildlife,and the night time sounds of the frogs and the surf.

We also loved Vieques as a vacation spot. The beaches are some of the most beautiful we have ever seen and, despite it being a huge vacation week (the week between Christmas and New Years), never crowded. In fact, one day we found a beach where we were the only people on it. Anyone considering it, however, should know up front that Vieques is not a highly developed tourist destination. There is one big, fancy resort on the island if that is what you are looking for. Otherwise, your sense of adventure will take you down dirt roads, stopping for iquanas and wild horses, to the grocery store where you will purchase for dinner whatever is available that day, and to the line at one of the 2 gas stations on the island. You will be rewarded by wonderful, friendly residents always willing to help, fabulous beaches, fantastic weather and a feeling that you have truly left your hectic life behind. We sincerely hope to return next year.

A beautiful spot for our Vieques adventure

  • 5 of 5
My first impression of Tranquility by the Sea, was of meeting the owner at the ferry dock, she was lovely and kind. The location of the cottage was a bit of a drive from town, but we knew this and had rented an appropriate vehicle. The cottage itself is more than charming, with horses all round and sweeping fields and a glimpse of the sea from the patio. Very nice and relaxing. The decor is clean and well kept, the casita is adorable and the BBQ area is great after a long day of hiking, beaching and exploring. A must is to take the trail through the neighboring field down to the little beach with more sea glass and gorgeous shells than you can imagine. It is located near the local dog shelter, but we were never bothered by this, if you are then there is A/C in each room to drown out any noise. Vieques is a wonderful place to explore with great beaches and cool restaurant, especially in Esperanza. Overall a great stay at a sweet place and a very available and attentive owner.

Great house/location, tranquil, as advertised.

  • 5 of 5
I'm almost reluctant to post such a positive review, as it might mean that the property will already be booked when we wish to return, but so be it. First off, it was exactly as advertised, and in fact even better. The location was ideal for my family and I. The house is on a quiet lane, a couple of minutes drive from Isabel II, and a couple of minutes walk to beaches. It sits in a lovely tropical garden (complete with tropical garden sounds), with lots of wildlife (humming birds, iguanas, wild horses in the lane, etc), and you can see the ocean and hear the surf. The house has all one might need, and more. It was clean, comfortable, and a great place to return to after a hard day on the beach (ahh, I miss it already). The most popular beaches were a short drive away. 15 minutes, maybe, to the Sun Bay beaches, and about the same to the entrance to the Wildlife Reserve where all the really remote and stunning beaches are. Isabel is quite a nice little town. More character than we expected, some good places to eat, an old Spanish fort which is worth a visit, a couple of supermarkets, coffee shops etc. We preferred it to Esperanza (perhaps a 15 minute drive away), which is also nice. We tended to take a picnic lunch to a beach, then head back around sunset to Isabel for dinner, and then it was a very short drive home, to refreshing showers followed by dessert and cold beers on the verandah. The kids could chill out in front of the tv while we grownups would plan which beaches to hit the next day. Gloria, the property owner, was great. She arranged for us to be picked up from the ferry, and even arranged for a car to take us from the Fajardo ferry dock back to the airport in San Juan. She's accessible, easy to communicate with, and has obviously put a lot of thought into her rental property (hence we had everything we might need). My family and I loved our stay there, and can't wait to return, hopefully for longer next time.
