Beautiful house, would definitely stay here again!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had this house all to ourselves. I loved this house. It was huge and beautiful. It had everything you would need, enough rooms to choose from, large bathrooms, towels, kitchen supplies, etc. Plenty of space and comfortable. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets to see and we even appreciated that there was an alarm. We may plan for another vacay but with more people next time, as there is more than enough space to do so. However, Sea Glass beach wasn't all that. When we went exploring on our first night, there was even a dead cat washed up on the beach. However, that doesn't reflect the house what so ever. But the house is in a good location as far as walking to some stores and getting food and necessities. Our first morning we walked out and found everything in that area easy and fast to get to. The house even had snorkeling equipment that we were able to use. Only downfall was that all the flippers were s/m and my BF wears l/xl, so we had to rent those. However, no big deal. Also, one more con was that the jacuzzi didn't get warm. It's one of the main reasons my BF wanted this house in particular. He loved that we could come back in the evening after a long day of activities and relax in the hot water but the heater didn't work. It only gave us bubbles. :(

But over all, beautiful house. Worth staying in. And anywhere on the island is a 20 minute drive away so although we spent most of our time in Esperanza, and doing some exploring, it was great to be close to the airport and car rental the morning we had to leave. Definitely recommend this house.

Touch of Glass House is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I loved the house and found Vieques positively beautiful. The house was gorgeous and the fact that it's right on the beach is wonderful. It's also very close to town and supermarkets, bars, restaurants! I hope we can come back again soon!

Getting away from the cold winter!

We love Vieques! We were there 15 years ago and little has changed! There are a few more people vacationing there with more cars, but it's still a wonderful, laid back, friendly island. We took my 89 year old mother-in-law this time and she loved it too! She really enjoyed watching the iguanas and sitting on Glass Beach. We were happy that Red Beach is open now, it's the most beautiful beach I've ever been to!

A touch of glass beach house was very nice. It's very comfortable and has most everything you need. We were a little disappointed about a few things: there was no snorkel equipment and that would have been nice (it probably didn't say there was any and I assumed there was), the shower didn't drain well in the downstairs bathroom and the hot tub did not get hot at all!

But all in all our stay was wonderful! We loved being able to walk to restaurants, stores and bars from the house. Our favorite restaurant was Coqui Fire, right up the street! The food is great!

We really loved listening to the waves and coqui at night after the absolutely beautiful sunsets!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and we are happy you enjoyed your stay. We really appreciate your feedback. While no one has asked about snorkel gear before, it is a great idea to have some at the house for guests to use. We'll be sure to address that and your other comments as well. Thanks again!

Fantastic Trip!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at A Touch of Glass Beach House during our visit to Vieques. The house was amazing with comfortable living arrangements, beautiful views, access to a wonderful stone and sea glass beach, and so much more. Within walking distance to two great bakeries, a nice walk to either the lighthouse or the fort, and easy access to everything.

One of the main reasons we chose Vieques and A Touch of Glass was to have a vacation that was not so full of tourist attractions and commercialism. Walking the streets from the house to the bakeries and such we enjoyed interacting with the friendly and hospitable locals and being, at least in a small way, part of the local culture. A great experience to all of the Morells.

While staying in the Beach House we enjoyed the iguanas and crabs in the back yard, snorkling in the waters off the Beach House shore, and investigating the ship that is sunk nearby.

As for the rest of the island visiting the many beautiful beaches, the bioluminescent bay, and horseback riding were just a couple of the amazing experiences we enjoyed. Taking beautiful senic rides on Veiqueses interesting highways, snorkling at different locations, and enjoying the tropical weather made our relaxing experience at A Touch of Glass even better.

My vacation at the Touch of Glass Beach House was amazing! We were welcomed by the property managers who are pleasant, friendly and helpful. They gave us a tour of the house and explained everything about the house. The house itself is to die for! Perfect for 3 couples!!! Each bedroom has it's own private bathroom. Each room has been recently updated including the bathrooms! The house was clean and provided all the necessary items needed for a week stay (i.e. kitchen gadgets). There are so many great things about the house! Beach front (lots of beach glass!! ), the incredible sunsets, the privacy from neighbors and noise. I would absolutely come back to A Touch of Glass Beach house!!!!
