Why gloria chose Vieques
This property is special to us as it's private and offers us the pleasure of enjoying wildlife. There are woods behind with a river bordering two sides but we especially love our beautiful ocean view and the daily visits from a herd of wild horses who graze between our home and the ocean. We never tire of the surprise of seeing a new colt accompanying its mother for the first time or a nest of egrets full of fuzzy baby birds in the trees behind in the lagoon. You might see everything from nesting egrets, horses, iguanas, hummingbirds, rooster families, mongoose - etc. on our grounds. It's bringing you nature - naturally!
What makes this Cottage unique
We are a quick walk to a sandy beach which offers a mile long walk. Sitting on our porch glider and watching surf and feeling peaceful with the sounds and sights of country living by the sea.

Best house on the block.
Three of us stayed here for a week. The house is very clean and has a wonderful wrap around porch. We had some appliance problems the first couple days which were immediately taken care of by the owner, Gloria. She had a new microwave and refrigerator installed the day after she was contacted about the problems. The dryer isn't working and hasn't been for a while. Gloria said she'd be replacing that soon. We didn't have any worries with the laundry because of the clothes line outside - perfect. Yes, there neighbor's house is unkempt, but he's friendly and quiet. Look past it. The animal shelter that others have complained about really wasn't so bad. The dogs bark for about 30 minutes during feeding times twice a day. Around 630 am and pm. Once feeding is over we rarely heard them and weren't bothered at all.
Gloria, the homeowner is amazing to work with. Very involved and concerned about our comfort.
The only thing I would change is to make it clear in the property description that there is only ac in the bedrooms. (I don't think it specified) Other areas of the home have ceiling fans to cool with the windows open. After dark those areas were very comfortable if the breezes were blowing.
Beautiful home and yard!
The house was beautiful and the yard surrounding it was spacious and beautiful as well. The house had lots of amenities. Gloria, the owner was great to work with and answered questions I had quickly. Thank you!
Great place to stay!
The name speaks for itself, Tranquility.
Loved our stay in Vieques and enjoyed "coming home" after our adventures on the island
We loved Tranquility by the Sea. The home is right by the animal rescue shelter so the mornings were a little noisy when the dogs were being fed but overall did not disrupt our stay. The home was comfortable with all the amenities
The cottage is on a nice property. There are beautiful flowers and nice big palm trees. There is also a nice porch overlooking the ocean. The inside was clean and well appointed. There are plenty of cooking supplies as well as beach toys. The bags for groceries came in handy.
We did not venture down to the beach close to the house as we were only on the island for 3 nights and really wanted to explore all the other beaches.
The only inconvenience was the multiple locks we had to use when we left the house and at night. I realize we are on an island with a declining economy but I felt paranoid that someone would try to break in. Could be because there are horses roaming around and owner is just protecing her property, which is totally understandable.
There is an animal shelter across the street and the dogs do bark at times. We were too busy exploring the island for it to really bother us.
Gloria, the owner, sent Marcelle and William to meet us at the car rental. They showed us around which was very helpful.
Off the Beaten Path with a great view.
We had a wonderful time staying at Tranquility by the Sea. Gloria was great to answer our many questions and provide assistance with finding things. We were greeted by Marcell and William and they were so nice to show us the place and suggest things we might be interested in. We loved sitting on the veranda and having coffee in the morning. It was very nice.
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.
