Never get bored , watch the constant activity around a busy working harbor! However the action starts early and we recommend that light sleepers roll down the shutters and use the AC if they want to sleep in.
Walkers and runners will find great routes to the East thru the quiet neighborhoods of Bravos de Boston and Santa Maria. Lots of shopping and dining options nearby.
It is always best to have a rental car in Vieques but public transportation is available just steps from the cottage at the ferry dock. We can pick you up at the airport or meet you at your car rental. You can walk from the ferry dock. The house has convenient and secure off street parking.

Please be Green, AC is to be used ONLY when guest is in the house. .We have super efficient Units and they cool down the bedrooms in less than 5 minutes.
Most of the candles around the house are battery operated, please do not attempt to light them! LOL!
We love the local children but we do not invite them in the house. The concept of vacation rentals is foreign to them and although you may enjoy their company the next dozen renters may not, so please do not invite them into the house.
One of the joys of renting a home in the Caribbean is being able to cook at home especially local Lobster.We encourage it! However guests need to immediately clean up the lobster carcasses and double bag them and get them out of the house and into an outdoor garbage can. Even better is to Freeze the carcasses and dispose of them in a public garbage can near the ferry or plaza that is emptied daily. There is something about local lobsters And the climate that create an unbelievably bad smell in a very short time, it will permeate the house and ruin your vacation and the next guests also.
Thanks for cooperating.
I am an Artist and a Real Estate professional. My husband and I love to travel and take at least one trip a year to South America and Chile where I was born. We like amazing scenery, ruins and great crafts.Our favorite recent destinations would be Peru, Guatemala and Vietnam and Cambodia .
I have said about my self "I am selling dreams" First as an artist and now as a real estate broker specializing in vacation homes, and certainly the cottage we own is another dream we love to share.
I have spent most of my life and career helping and hosting Mermaids Cottage (Villa la Sirena ) is the first rental property we have owned but I manage several rental properties on our beautiful island for other owners.
My hosting style is to great you, orient you and to always be available either by phone, text or email but I am wise enough to give my guests their privacy and they will not see me again until checkout unless it is by their choice or I am dealing with some issue or request.
