Isabel Segunda 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 and the dog shelter is just across the way. Isabel Segunda is just a 25 minute walk or a 3 minute drive.

About gloria

I am an artist - designer - home owner who enjoys providing anyone who stays in my home a clean - comfortable place to enjoy a beautiful island.

gloria purchased this cottage in 2002

Why gloria chose Vieques Island

it's private (one neighbour) and woods behind and river bordering. The veranda provides a lovely ocean view as well as the fun of watching wild horses romp in the fields between. You must enjoy wildlife!! We have everything from nesting egrets, dogs, horses, iguanas, hummingbirds, etc.

What makes this cottage unique

We are a quick walk to a sandy beach which offers a mile long walk and a great place to surf if you are so inclined!

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.

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.

Located on the north shore - we are very near the beach. Our cottage offers a great view of the ocean and rolling waves. Wild horses graze in the fields by our home and wander our road daily. For lovers of wildlife - this is the place. From hummingbirds to egrets that roost behind the cottage - we have birds and birders will not be disappointed as there is constant activity. Our two water gardens feature water lilies and we have daily visitors from local birds. When not at the cottage -

you can walk a dog at the humane shelter next door., find a new beach to explore, or go shelling - snorkeling or scuba diving. The eateries are diverse and if cooking in is a favorite - the cottage is amply supplied with pots - pans etc. We pride ourselves in providing you with a clean - comfortable home to come back to after a day exploring and enjoying the island.
