Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband I spent 3 nights in October in this wonderful house. First, Barbara made sure we had all the information we needed before we arrived, including providing us with the contact information for a driver to take us to the ferry. Marcelle and William met us at the car rental on Vieques, went to the house with us, and showed us around the property and gave us excellent tips on beaches and restaurants. They made us feel right at home! The house is located just feet from the beach and the yard and patio is beautifully maintained. The house is older but spotless and comfortable and equipped with everything we needed, including beach chairs and snorkeling gear. We hated to leave and hope to return soon!

Wonderful house, beautiful views, great memories made!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 5 friends and family here to celebrate finishing our masters degrees and enjoying summer vacation (we are teachers). The house is lovely and has anything you could need. We bought spices, oil, and laundry soap but we didn't need any of that because the house was stocked with all of that. There was also snorkeling gear, water shoes, beach chairs, and beach umbrellas. We had so much fun adventuring around the island and going to the Bioluminescent bay and lots of beaches, including the one right in front of the house. What paradise to get to stay in! We would come back in a heartbeat! Thank you Barbara for sharing your wonderful house with us!

Honeymoon Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Casa del Marullo (House of Waves) from June 12th-19th, 2015. We had a wonderful time at the house and on the island of Vieques. The house is very secure, comfortable, clean and in a great location. The security system in the house makes you feel very safe. You feel very secluded and have your own stretch of beach all to yourself. Sitting on the outdoor patio and hearing the waves is so peaceful and relaxing. We had our morning coffee on the patio and cocktail in the evenings. The island is so beautiful with pristine beaches, unspoiled by development. I loved the horses running around loose all over the island from the roads in town to hills and beaches all around the island.

During our week on the island we went sailing, snorkeling, fishing, beach hopping, shopping and eating out. We also cooked a lot at the house and they had everything we needed and more. In fact everything was provided, from shampoo, soap, lotions, etc., to spices and all things needed in the kitchen. The house also had beach items and snorkeling equipment so we didn’t have to rent those items. The owner of the house, Barbara sent me loads of information before we got to the island which was so helpful in planning our trip. She also gave us a wedding gift, which was so sweet and thoughtful. Barbara’s house manager Marcelle and caretaker William were also very friendly and helpful and showed us how to get to the grocery store and fish market when we arrived. Barbara, Marcelle and William were just a phone call or text away if we needed anything during our stay.

We booked the sailing/snorkeling trip with Caribbean Lady and it was great. We had a crew of three on the 47’ boat and they provided snacks, meal, drinks, dessert and snorkel equipment. It was an awesome experience, especially since it was my first time snorkeling and I was scared to do it. Christina on the boat was a wonderful instructor and Glen took great care of us on the boat and in the water. Captain Tom was informative and entertaining and his wife Ann made all of the food which was delicious, especially the Tres Leches dessert.

Our vacation home for a week

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending a week on vieques. This was our first time to this beautiful peaceful island but I do not think it will be the last. Casa de Marullo was perfect for us, two couples, traveling together. It has a very large yard which seems more unusual for the area and it is all gated/fenced off to keep the horses out. The house is supplied well with things you need. The house manager, Marcelle, makes herself available for anything to make your stay great. Everyone on the island is very helpful and friendly. Working with the owner, Barbara, was also very easy and problem free. Any questions we had she quickly answered. I would highly recommend this for a vacation destination. We explored new beaches every day! One of the greatest things about the island is that most everywhere is so casual you can go right from the beach to the restaurants without having to go clean up first. Throw on your beach coverup and you are good to go!

Our Only Regret....We Didnt Stay Longer

  • 5 of 5

This could not have been the more perfect vacation getaway. The house is beautiful, the property incredibly well maintained and you cannot get a better view. The rooms are large, comfortably furnished and all the extras are more than I have ever experienced in previous vacation rentals. Well stocked kitchen, spices, oils, and personal items, shampoo, lotions, bug repellent, etc. This truly felt like a home away from home.

But what really puts this rental over the top is Barbara and her staff. The amount of communication, detailed information and willingness to answer questions was incredible. They have a high standard for attention to detail and hospitality! Marcelle and WIlliam (the caretakers) were incredibly thorough in all the what, whys and hows to navigate Vieques as well as the property. And just in case you weren't listening they have provided helpful little notes around the house.

We are looking forward to returning to Vieques and Casa del Marullo would be are only option! We only hope it is available the next time we decide to visit.
