As the sun sets, enjoy a cool drink on the veranda, cook on the BBQ grill and take in the sounds of the gently, rolling surf. Don't forget an evening visit to the world's best Bio-Luminescent Bay - a must. Vieques is truly an enchanted tropical island!

This was a lovely vacation home. It is clean, comfortable and well-stocked. Barbara, the owner, was extremely helpful and prompt in all of our correspondence. The beach in front of the house was very private and nice to walk along, it's not great for swimming, but the snorkeling was pretty good. If your idea of a perfect vacation includes having a swim, a snorkel, and a rest on a different beautiful beach every day, it doesn't get much better than this. We have only been home for a couple days, but would like to return to Vieques immediately!

Great Place but!
Great Place but!
Just a beautiful place! Has everything you need for a great vacation. Decorated in very good taste and very spacious. Very nice bathrooms. The view is just beautiful. The house deserves it's name, "The house of waves" Property manager was also great, very helpful. BUT the security system and procedures can become very tiresome Why my rating good instead of excellent!

Manager response: Thank you for taking the time to report how much you liked the house, views, location and how comfortable you were in Casa del Marullo. I am always so pleased when my guests respond in such a positive way. I also fully understand your frustration with the extra time and trouble of securing the house. I am sorry that adequate security involves locks and a commercial security system. In an ideal world these precautions would not be needed. After consulting with experts and other homeowners on the island, I had to take these measures for the safety and security of my guests and the property. I want the memories of Casa del Marullo and Vieques to be wonderful ones. I appreciate your comments and thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. I hope that the security measures did not interfere with your having a great time in Vieques and at Casa del Marullo and that you will return!
Phenomenal Vacation, Your Casa felt like our Casa
Phenomenal Vacation, Your Casa felt like our Casa
Our time at Casa del Marullo was everything we could have hoped for, this house felt like home for four of us, two who were familiar with Vieques and o who werur two best friendswho were visiting for the first time. Tho owner, and the managers were extremely helpful and charming folk to work with. So, from the earliest stages of planning a two week stay ( which can often be stressful) they made life easier. The home is clean, comfortable and well stocked, (from paper towels and detergent to beach accessories) the beds are clean and comfortable and the common living area ,patio and kitchen are complemented with comfortable furniture,(not always our experience with Rental homes. The kitchen is better than well equiped and for those of you who have had the experience of nothing sharper than a butter knife, this is not a problem here. The patio and yard were beautiful and we were entertained daily by the pelicans who roost in the rookery. You will not be dissappointed with this home, the property,, the convenience of the location and the good will of the owner and manager. We will return as we love the people of Vieques as well as the comfort of this home. For those who are experiencing the island for the first time this is a wonderful place to set down your baggage and begin your journey. For those concerned about safety this neighborhood was friendly and the home felt very safe. We would highly recommend this property. Enjoy!

Views that can't be beat.

We came to Vieques with another couple and we all enjoyed our stay at Casa del Marullo. The best part is the view of the ocean out the back door. You can open up nearly a whole wall in the living room and watch the pelicans diving into the surf just a few yards away. The house itself is very roomy and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped, the beds are comfy and there are plenty of towels and hot water. If you stay here, be sure to take a walk on North Shore Drive to see some of the other beautiful homes on this stretch of Vieques. All the photos here are exactly as the house really is. The beach itself is a little rough for swimming, but it's great for beachcombing for shells and sea glass. It's a delightful, peaceful escape by the sea. Watch for the occasional iguana, hummingbird or gecko as you sit on the patio. Horses may wander by on the beach. Stop by the funky beehive or the Siddhia gallery in town for some shopping. El Patio is a nice little restaurant (not much of a sign, but it's there!) It's worth a stop at the fish market, if for nothing else than to see the huge tarpon swimming in the bay.

This was a vacation of a lifetime! The pictures do not do it justice, it is even more spectacular in person. I suggest at least two weeks because you will be so content just sitting on the back patio looking at the view and listening to the waves that it's hard to get out and explore everything the island has to offer! Bio tour is a must as well as snorkling. If you like seafood go down to Isabel Segunda to the Pescadoria after 11 a.m., that's when the Fisherman get back with the "fresh catch" of the day. We will definitly be going back, it was so hard to leave.

In March 2012, I reserved Casa del Marullo for my honeymoon later in the year. To make a long story short, my fiancee and I later became concerned about Vieques as a honeymoon destination due to her severe horse allergies, and I unfortunately had to cancel our reservation. Barbara was very helpful and accomodating - I'm afraid that we put her through a lot of trouble, asking numerous questions about the property and finally cancelling, but she was extremely kind and helpful throughout the process. Casa del Marullo looks like a wonderful place for a honeymoon, and I wish any future travellers there the best. Barbara is a pleasure to deal with, and I would highly recommend booking with her.

It's been a week since we left Casa del Marullo and I find myself longing to open the big glass doors, walk out onto the terrace with my steaming cup of Joe, and listen to and watch the waves crash on the shore. Or maybe watch the beautiful horses stroll by or watch the iguana work on his suntan in the yard. This casa was everything it was described to be and more. It was fully equipped with everything one needs for a stay and for trips to the beautiful beaches. The owner, Barbara, was very good to work with, and patient, too, answering my many many questions. The caretakers, Marcelle and William, were very friendly, accomodating, and helpful, We were two couples staying here and felt that the house was very spacious and comfortable. It was especially nice having the washer and dryer to keep everything clean. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone wanting a laid back, relaxing type of get-a-away. While some say there is not much to do on Vieques, that is the absolute beauty of it! In the seven days we were there, we did not have near enough time to do everything we wanted. We did visit many of the beaches (funny how everyone you ask has a different favorite) and finally decided upon OUR favorite---Media Luna. This may not be the beach for everyone but it was small and quiet and not very populated. We didn't eat out much as we preferred to cook in (or out on the terrace on the nice BBQ pit). We visited Morales Supermercado many times, as well as some of the local Colmados, and the fruit and vegetable market. Everyone we met was super friendly and helpful. We did manage to hit Sol Food one day on the way to Sun Bay...OMG...it was truly amazing! I thought it funny before coming to Vieques that it was the #1 rated "restaurant" but now I see why! We did the Bio Bay tour and while we enjoyed it, I would recommend to anyone else to not go in kayaks--it was not the most comfortable experience for us. Overall, an excellent experience, we loved loved Casa del Marullo, and I cannot wait to do it again!!!!!

Great stay in Vieques!
Great stay in Vieques!
We stayed at this house last October. This is a great house right on the beach. It is large and has everything you need. We had 4 adults and one child and it never felt crowded. It was great to have all the beach toys and umbrellas. We loved sitting out on the back deck and watching the ocean, as well as the few stray horses that found their way into the yard when we forgot to close the gate! The location is close to everything, and a short drive to some great beaches. I would definitely recommend this house!

First of all a disclaimer - we travel a lot! You couldn't ask for a better place to stay than Casa del Marullo. The owner, Barbara, was extremely detailed and organized AND HELPFUL! Everything we needed was provided and more, including lots of information about Vieques and things to do and see. The location of the house is just fantastic - literally right on the beach, very private (like your own - we saw almost no one the whole time). And the house has simply everything provided! Very comfortable, very clean, very nice. This is one of the nicest vacations we've ever had. One other comment about Vieques: The food and restaurants there are unbelievably good. As I said, we travel a lot and every meal was soooo good. You can't go wrong with either Casa del Marullo or Vieques for a vacation.
