Second time even better!

  • Submitted: Jan 23, 2014

Our first visit to the Sandia Beach House was so nice that we decided to visit again over the holidays. The house was just as beautiful as our last visit, but the owners had made some cosmetic changes which were very pleasant, such as large palms around the pool area. Now when you are lying in the sun next to the pool, you have the feeling of being on a secluded, private resort! During this time of year the weather was fantastic, the ocean water warm, and my husband even got to swim with turtles! The W Hotel hosted a fantastic New Year's Eve party, which is not to be missed. December is a great time to go to Vieques and the Sandia Beach House is the perfect place to relax and enjoy it.

This house is something special - we will return!

  • Submitted: Jan 3, 2014

We stayed the week after Thanksgiving in the Sandia Beach House. We loved the house! As the weather was not always that good, we really enjoyed the warm atmosphere of this perfectly equipped and maintained house. You can see in many details that the owners put a lot of effort in creating a great home, starting with a very nice garden, equipped with typical plants and flowers. We enjoyed the several outside patios as well as the well-sized pool at the back of the house. The living room and dining area are nicely furnished, the well-selected local art underpins the high standard and the owners sense for a cozy interior. We never found such a perfectly equipped kitchen in a rented house and did not miss anything even for a many-courses meal. The bedrooms and bathrooms are newly renovated and very clean. But the absolute highlight of the house is a roof-top patio that offers you a breathtaking 360-degree view with a fantastic wide and interesting ocean landscape, the rain forest impression on the back side and the urban landscape around the Punta Lunas lighthouse. The house is perfectly located at the top of a small hill, on a small side road to the main road, but nevertheless you can reach the supermarket in 2 minutes and Isabell II in 5 minutes by car. Within 2 minutes walking distance, we enjoyed several times the small sand beach nearby, ideally for watching the sunset or snorkeling.

Perfect place to relax

  • Submitted: Nov 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We spent 2 weeks at Sandia Beach House with our two teenage kids. We liked it so much that we are already planning to come back next year as we discovered that there are affordable direct flights from Frankfurt to San Juan. Sandia Beach House is ideally located on a hill with spectacular views to the close by ocean and the green mountains. We will always remember the magic moments when we watched the sundown from the roof top terrace.The house itself is very special due to its outstanding architecture which enables its inhabitants to enjoy marvelous views from all over the place.The light, which is coming in through big windows, creates a very cheerful and cozy atmosphere. The owners obviously put a lot of effort in tastefully decorating the place with nice artwork and treasures from the sea. The furniture also fits in very well. We all very much appreciated the comfortable beds and the air condition. It was very clean, too. The kitchen is well equipped. We often enjoyed our meals either on the front terrace or in the outdoor room downstairs while listening to the waves of the ocean. As a supermarket and on some days even a little local market are only minutes away by car, shopping was easy. We very much enjoyed the great variety of beautiful beaches and the warm, crystal clear water, ideal for swimming and snorkeling. Yet,we also loved to go for a swim in the spacious pool. The lovely pool area is definitely a highlight we would not want to miss. When our son had a health problem we were relieved to find out about the well organized emergency room in Isabel Segunda, the nice village close to Sandia Beach House. All the doctors and even most of the nurses spoke English. Minor problems with a toilet lid or the dishwasher were immediately dealt with by Bravos Boyz. Quite reassuring to know that they are so reliable and helpful and can be contacted 24 hours a day. We definitely recommend this place for a relaxing holiday.

Wow! Sandia Beach House has gotten even better!

  • Submitted: Nov 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
Recently I have stayed the second time at Sandia Beach House with my family. I loved it last year so I hoped nothing had changed. But Sandia has gotten even better: a nicely furnished outdoor living room with a seating area from where you can enjoy ocean views even when it rains, new furniture and artwork all over the house, a lot of additional cook ware, as well as all new pool furniture and decoration. The pool has become one of the focal points and great attractions of Sandia: the palm trees around it have grown and provide even more privacy, a nice umbrella and new lounge chairs as well as a little snack area are great additions for a nice day or evening at the pool. And the chairs on the roof top terrace help to enjoy sunrises and sunsets even more. Also the new curtains in the pool side room are a appreciated. We discovered the little vegetable market in walking distance to Sandia Beach House (Tuesday) and spent quite a bit of time at the beaches across the house. Of course we enjoyed again all the great and unique beaches in the South of the island - Blue Beach remains our favorite but we also liked Navio and Media Luna a lot. A big compliment to the Bravos Boyz who were always there when we needed help or advice. If you want to spend a unique vacation on a unique island you should come to Sandia Beach House in Vieques!

A piece of Paradise

We stayed 10 days at Sandia Beach House just before it closed for renovation - and we had a fabulous time. Gorgeous ocean views from all five patios and balconies, a nice big pool and a well maintained garden where we could harvest our own mangoes. The house is very clean and provides many small surprises like a Bose Wave II with iPhone docking station, a Nespresso machine and some interesting art. The location is perfect, just across the rocky north coast beach, a short drive from the splendid beaches in the natural park and close to Isabella II, as well as to the amenities of the W resort. Great management through the Bravos Boyz. We will definitively come back!

Splendid Beach House on a Dream Island

  • Submitted: Oct 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
I have spent the first week of September 2012 with my family in Sandia Beach House. We had a dream vacation in Vieques and enjoyed Sandia very much. When you enter the property you are blown away by wonderful ocean views and a beautiful garden with palm trees and tropical flowers - not to mention a big newly renovated swimming pool! We even prepared Caipirinhas with our own limes from the garden which we enjoyed while watching the sunset on the gorgeous roof top terrace. You can hear and smell the ocean everywhere in the house, a little rocky beach is just across the street. We also loved the ambiance of Sandia Beach house, which really honors its name with all kinds of local art and beach decorations. The house is a short ride to all the gorgeous almost empty beaches. The local management from Bravos Boyz was very friendly and helpful. Sandia Beach House is the perfect place for an unforgettable vacation. I plan to be back in December!

Fabulous house!

  • Submitted: Oct 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
We loved the house, the casual decor, the five dining areas (house was on stilts for a better view with a dining/lounging area below) and the spacious pool. The brand new blender used by the prior renters was broken and they ran over the next morning with another new one. The car rental had closed before our 6 p.m. arrival so the person from Bravos Boys was willing to take us to the market, they were extremely nice and accommodating in every aspect! Island rental picked us up the next morning to bring us to our car. There was a farmers market on Tuesday and Wednesday morning (one very long block away, couldn't get closer than that) with the most amazing produce so make sure you don't stock up at Morales' cause these were much fresher! The house was very clean, pool person came during the week to clean pool and sweep lower level. An abundance of dinnerware and glassware, excellent espresso machine (they usually taste like plastic). The very few negatives were, the house was not in the nicest area (the house is gated but we didn't feel the need to use the security, there were stunning homes across from us located on the beach), there were many dogs and cats on adjoining properties (not to mention a few roosters but that's always in the Caribbean). We were awakened by them early in the morning. The house is in full sun, which is why we choose this particular house and we could have used an umbrella at the pool. The kitchen was not very well stocked for a cook (unlike their Seapatch rental). Though I did find a stainless wok that I used for every meal and one large pot. Fortunately, I travel with my own cooking knives. We had to buy a bag of charcoal and lighter fluid for one barbecue (I thought they could supply enough for two grillings, just my opinion). I have rented many boats and a few homes and I have, always, traveled with my own food (you're not going to find grass fed beef, chicken, organic veggies or St agur blue cheese!),1. I feel when renting a great house you want to enjoy every moment taking in the view and other amenities and 2. I don't want to spend $400 for dinner every evening to eat great food! Another bonus was the star gazing deck above the house!

Comfortable and relaxing

  • Submitted: Oct 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
We spent a week at Sandia with 3 other couples. It was a vacation for relaxation and sun - and met our expectations! Bravos Boyz management was very accommodating and helpful, and the house was clean, bright and comfortable. The kitchen had all the cookware, dishes and utensils that we needed for pretty extensive cooking. The bedrooms were bright and cheerful. The indoor living room is contiguous to the kitchen and offered a nice gathering area. There are also several outdoor eating and seating areas. The pool area is very nice, with adequate lounges for all, and the addition of a poolside umbrella was helpful for those who cannot take as much sun. Wi-fi was available and worked well on the main floor. The property was pretty, with flowering shrubbery and a view of the water. A couple of small beaches are within walking distance (but the north beaches are fairly rough (waves). We were able to walk to the Farmers' Market (not very extensive, but lots of nice produce). Isabel Segunda is a bit far to walk, especially when it is hot or if you wanted to carry anything back. Morales market is nearby, as are the island's only two gas stations. Gas was in short supply when we were there, and there were gas lines. But we found having transportation a must while staying on Vieques - particularly to get to the best beaches, and to Esperanza. A couple of things to take into consideration in your choice - there are a lot of stairs so this would not be a good choice for anyone with mobility challenges (you must go up a full flight of stairs to the main living area - including kitchen and living room). The ground floor poolside suite is very nice - and private from the rest of the house - but note that there are no curtains, and lots of windows facing the pool area - so not much privacy from the pool area. Wi-fi was iffy down there. The photos on the website very accurately represent the property. It is clean, bright and comfortable - I would call it homey, not luxurious.

Your own private resort!

  • Submitted: Oct 2, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
Amazing views of the ocean, landscape and sunsets from the many decks of this spacious property perched up on high ... with only a short walk to the beach below. Even with 3 couples we each had our own private deck, full bathroom, and climate control. There were also 5 different indoor and outdoor dining areas. Since the house is on stilts a great feature was the open but shaded sitting and dining area for our grill-out poolside. The house is unique with is wooden structure and many windows to let the breezes blow through. One of the best kept secrets of the island are the variety of beaches that are national parks only a short drive away ... so, no crowds or big buildings, just simple cabanas ... even horses run wild around the island. For us adventurous types, the snorkeling was great in the clear blue waters and rocky areas. A highlight was a nighttime kayak on the bio-luminescent bay, where the water glows when disturbed. As for eating in, the kitchen had everything you needed, down to the espresso machine. Then there were several great eating spots around the island from the roadside stand to fine plates that were works of art. So, I highly recommend this property and locale and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!
