Beautiful, relaxing house!
Our family of 5 just returned from 6 blissful days in Vieques. While the island is beautiful, the beaches amazing, the bio bay magical, it was coming "home" each day to Touch of Glass that really made our trip so comfortable and relaxing. The house is light and beautiful and has a great layout that easily accommodated our 2 adults and 3 teenagers. We loved that the kids could have their own space downstairs with two good sized bedrooms with enormous bathrooms and terraces off each bedroom. After a long day of swimming and snorkeling, they enjoyed the lounge area downstairs where they could play a board game or watch one of the DVDs provided. We took the upstairs bedroom with its unbeatable view of the ocean and another huge bathroom.
The house is beautifully landscaped with a small walkway from the terrace with the jacuzzi going directly down to Glass Beach. Don't be put off by the rocky shore at this beach! It ended up being one of our favorites as the water was so calm and clear and allowed for some great snorkeling. We also loved the wildlife right in our backyard - coquis, geckos, lizards, iguanas, butterflies, bats and the neighborhood rooster. Some of our favorite memories? Being the only people on the tiny sea glass beach at sunset and swimming with a school of reef squid and damselfish, sitting on the terrace at dusk watching the sun set, following the family of huge iguanas in the Flamboyan tree next to the terrace.
It's worth mentioning that the house is also very conveniently located. It's on the edge of Isabela II so the grocery store and restaurants are only 2 blocks away but because of the layout and the landscaping it's very private and remote-feeling. It took us about 15 minutes to get to the southside beaches but we always came back to our house for the sunsets.
Finally, we really appreciated that the house was so well stocked. It has everything you need to feel comfortable during your stay. Picnicking on the beach was easy as beach towels, beach chairs, tupperware, ice packs, a cooler and plastic cutlery are all provided. Back at home we enjoyed the shelves of books, DVDS, board games, frosted beer mugs, air conditioning, grill and lounge furniture.
We recommend Touch of Glass without any reservation and hope to return to stay there soon!
Owner's Response: We couldnt have said it better ourselves! We are so glad you enjoyed everything that the house and location have to offer. We hope to welcome you back to A Touch of Glass Beach House soon
