HURRICANE MARIA UPDATE 11/22/17

We currently have water, but NO power or Internet. Cell phone service is limited Please check back with us often and we hope you will come stay with us as soon as the electricity comes back on!

Sal del Mar is located in the town of Isabel Segunda on the island of Vieques. We are close to everything, including the ferry. You can hear the waves crashing on Sea Glass beach below. The expansive deck offers a lovely ocean view that stretches for miles.

The space

Your lodging will be located on first floor (DN) of our home. Your view from the back deck will be wonderful and the ocean will shimmer in the sunlight. You will be treated to marvelous sunsets right from your own back deck! This fully refurbished apartment, including new furniture, is our home away from home. With an updated kitchen and laundry, and within walking distance of just above everything else, who could want for more!

If the downstairs apartment isn't available, please check out our upstairs apartment listing, Sal del Mar (U).

There are two private bedrooms and a futon couch located in the living room. While our maximum occupancy is listed as six, this is a small space so you will have to know each other very well if there are more than four of you. We can sleep four comfortably, five with ease, and six in a pinch.

Sal del Mar (DN) includes a wonderful street side porch, a ocean view living room, an updated kitchen with a new range and refrigerator, toaster oven, pots, pans, blender, dishes and everything you need to prepare your own meals. There is even a propane BBQ grill on the back deck!

There is a a large bathroom with a shower and a two small bedrooms. The rear deck faces the ocean; the front porch offers street side views.

This apartment is not recommended for infants, toddlers, or children under the age of five (5) due to an open rear deck.

Guest access

We are usually "on-island" mid-December to mid-March. If your reservations are during this time, we will meet you at the Vieques airport or ferry dock. If not, our property manager will meet you. Once you arrive, you will be given the keys, learn a little bit about the house and its many features, and have a chance to ask questions.

Access to the apartment is through a street level door. There is also a wonderful front porch, and an ocean view back deck, which you are free to use. Please note that the downstairs apartment has a separate entrance that is not connected to or shared with the upstairs apartment.

Our home is only a seven minute walk from the Vieques ferry terminal. One can usually walk faster than drive, as the only traffic jam in Vieques occurs when the ferry arrives!

Regardless of how you get here, someone will meet you to make sure you are settled in and ready to enjoy your time on the island!

Interaction with guests

We are usually "on-island" the months of mid-December to mid-March. While we may not be on Vieques when you are, we will always be available by phone, text message, or email for any questions that you might have. In addition, our property manager lives on the island and can assist as needed. You are more than welcome to text or call us if you have questions or concerns.

Other things to note

We rented Marie and Mike's place on a very short notice (one day), but this decision was the highlight of our trip. The communication with the owners and the housekeepers was very effective and efficient. They truly wanted to make our vacation as great as possible. We also very much appreciated the thorough description - it was clear that a lot of effort was put into writing it as accurate as possible. The apartment was in impeccable condition; everything you would possibly need, was provided. From the fully stocked kitchen and thoughtfully furnished rooms to the impressive DVD selection, every little detail had a purpose to make you comfortable. The AC units in the bedrooms were new and efficient. The back porch has a great view of the nearby beach (a 5 min walk from the house), where we swam and snorkeled right off shore. The house is on a quiet street (no noise issues whatsoever), but don't worry, the grocery stores, restaurants and Isabel downtown are all between 5 and 15 min walking distance. The location is simply perfect. A special "thank you" goes to Tom and Sue - a wonderful couple who keep the place in its amazing condition and are very attentive to all your needs. They even brought us fruits from their garden! All in all, we highly recommend this place for your stay in Vieques. We simply can't think of any cons :) Go ahead and book here now!

Marie & Mike's place was perfect for our stay in Vieques. It is so convenient to stores, restaurants, and a 3 minute walk to a beach with great snorkeling! It was so nice to have beach chairs, towels, coolers, and snorkeling equipment right at the house to pack up in the morning and venture out to the next beach on our check list! They were super helpful before we arrived, and their property managers Tom and Sue were always available if we needed anything as well as meeting us at the ferry when we arrived. We would definitely stay there again!

Fantastic place to stay in a cozy town! We were very well taken care of by the property managers Tom and Sue. They gave us a tour of the town and provided plenty of recommendations. The house is within walking distance to restaurants and a grocery store so no rental car needed. A taxi to Esperanza or any of the beaches is easy to find. We had a wonderful stay!

This is where you want to be! The house is clean and has everything you might need for a comfortable stay including a fully functional kitchen, beach towels, coolers, and snorkel gear! Enjoy a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea and sunset while sharing meals at the table on their back deck. Sea Glass Beach was great for snorkeling and beach combing and is a very short walk from the house. Restaurants and shops are all within walking distance and the neighborhood feels safe. The neighbors even brought us mangoes from their backyard tree to add to our breakfast of bakery goods from the bakery just up the street. Marie and Mike respond quickly to inquiries. They helped us with car rental, beach locations and bio bay kayaking recommendations - all were spot on! We can't wait to return!

Marie and Mike made every effort to make our trip a fantastic one. Before we arrived they answered every text promptly and with superb suggestions and advice. Their home, which is very conveniently located, has a wonder view of Sea Glass beach, is very close to town and is perfectly appointed with everything you need to make your beach holiday fun and comfortable. The house is within walking distance of shops, cafes, the ferry, rental car agencies, grocery stores, art galleries, post office, ATM and churches There are reliable cab services to further out beaches and remote areas. Glass Beach is a lovely beach to watch the sunset and is swimable. The night sounds of the waves, frogs, bugs and night birds are enchanting. Be prepared to hear the crowing of roosters that are on the job day and night. The neighborhood is safe and charming. Our hosts were magnificent and made us feel like old friends. I highly recommend this outstanding Airbnb experience.

We enjoy life, travel, living in the woods and living at the beach when we get a chance! Our home in Boston, Virginia sits in a 16 acre forest where we hunt for mushrooms, swim in the pond, and walk in the woods every chance we get.

We like to travel with small suitcases and find local places to eat, read, relax and have fun. We love all types of food, especially foods from the sea and places like Central and South America, the Far East, and of course, Puerto Rico!

We have lived on the west coast, the east coast, and in-between both coasts. We consider ourselves to be lifelong learners and continue to be amazed by the things we don't know, as well as the beauty of the world around us.

Family is important to us, as well as building relationships with new and interesting people from all walks of life. We enjoy hosting friends and family at our home in Boston, Virginia, and hope that our relationship with Airbnb will be just another extension of our desire to welcome others into the community we love in Vieques, and our home in Puerto Rico.
