Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

'Tranquility by the Sea' is a bright and breezy cottage completely equipped with everything you will need to make your stay comfortable and care free. This cottage offers a secluded one acre providing you with ocean view and sounds of surf. The cottage has high ceilings which are all fanned. Our wide wrap around veranda is a favorite shady spot to relax and experience the trade winds that are ever present. There's lots of seating and tables for dining outdoors there. We enjoy the many birds that live in the preserve behind the cottage who make daily visits to the lily pond in the front yard.

The protected wild life preserve is also home to large iguanas who live in the trees and forage in the gardens. If you like hummingbirds - you are in the right place. A long stretch of sandy beach where you can walk a mile - is just a 3 minute walk away and it is great for long walks and scavenging for beach glass - - and there is plenty for all. If you enjoy wild horses - you can get up close as they forage in the fields by the cottage and the dog shelter is just across the way. Isabel Segunda is just a 25 minute walk or a 3 minute drive.

About gloria

I am an artist - designer - home owner who enjoys providing anyone who stays in my home a clean - comfortable place to enjoy a beautiful island.

gloria purchased this cottage in 2002

Why gloria chose Vieques

it's private (one neighbour) and woods behind and river bordering. The veranda provides a lovely ocean view as well as the fun of watching wild horses romp in the fields between. You must enjoy wildlife!! We have everything from nesting egrets, dogs, horses, iguanas, hummingbirds, etc.

What makes this cottage unique

We are a quick walk to a sandy beach which offers a mile long walk and a great place to surf if you are so inclined!

Calm and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time so much! The home was a comfortable fit for the 5 of us. I fell asleep to the rhythm of the ocean every night. Thank you for such a great get away!

Loved our stay in Vieques and enjoyed "coming home" after our adventures on the island

  • 5 of 5

We loved Tranquility by the Sea. The home is right by the animal rescue shelter so the mornings were a little noisy when the dogs were being fed but overall did not disrupt our stay. The home was comfortable with all the amenities

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is on a nice property. There are beautiful flowers and nice big palm trees. There is also a nice porch overlooking the ocean. The inside was clean and well appointed. There are plenty of cooking supplies as well as beach toys. The bags for groceries came in handy.

We did not venture down to the beach close to the house as we were only on the island for 3 nights and really wanted to explore all the other beaches.

The only inconvenience was the multiple locks we had to use when we left the house and at night. I realize we are on an island with a declining economy but I felt paranoid that someone would try to break in. Could be because there are horses roaming around and owner is just protecing her property, which is totally understandable.

There is an animal shelter across the street and the dogs do bark at times. We were too busy exploring the island for it to really bother us.

Gloria, the owner, sent Marcelle and William to meet us at the car rental. They showed us around which was very helpful.

Off the Beaten Path with a great view.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Tranquility by the Sea. Gloria was great to answer our many questions and provide assistance with finding things. We were greeted by Marcell and William and they were so nice to show us the place and suggest things we might be interested in. We loved sitting on the veranda and having coffee in the morning. It was very nice.

Wonderful house; not so wonderful neighborhood

  • 3 of 5

Four of us shared the house during a week in January, 2017.

The house and casita are both constructed of concrete. They are both in excellent condition, neatly painted and clean inside and out. The floors throughout the house and casita are nicely tiled. They are both nicely decorated. Gloria spends a great deal of time keeping the property in great condition. The only thing that needs attention at this time is the fence around the one-acre property.

And I should go on with how much I like the house. The beds were comfortable with clean and relatively new bedding. The kitchen was spotless and had everything we needed to prepare breakfasts each morning. (We purchased bacon, eggs, juice, bread, and butter in Isabel one mile away at two grocery stores. We found plenty of cooking utensils along with cooking oil, paper towels, spices, maple syrup, ketchup, mustard, flour, sugar, coffee, and coffee filters). Gloria provided a cooler, snorkel equipment, beach towels, and even a boogey board for guest use. The three window-type air conditioners in the bedrooms worked flawlessly. The house has a master bedroom with a king-sized bed, a second bedroom with a queen-sized bed, and the casita with a full (double) sized bed. The water has good pressure and is good to drink. The hot water system worked fine. With the exception of the clothes dryer, the appliances all worked. We hung our clothes outside on the porch to dry overnight.

Gloria went out of her way to make our vacation. She answered questions before and during our stay. (Our Verizon cell service worked flawlessly). Gloria even alerted us the day before our arrival that the ferry schedule was being interrupted so we could make plans to fly to Vieques.

There are a couple of issues that were disappointing. First, Tranquility by the Sea is located directly across the street from the Vieques Humane Society & Animal Rescue. During our visit in January they housed dozens of barking dogs. The barking ranged from a couple dogs barking to well-over a dozen barking at a time. Two of the seven evenings were reasonable quiet. During the other five nights we found the constant noise to be too much. Thank goodness for the air conditioners in the bedrooms.

And the neighborhood is not well-kept. There is trash and junk strewn everywhere. Several neighbors have parts cars up on blocks in their front yards. Three fourths of the houses need paint. It is all too hard to ignore.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We love this place. The weather was spot on perfect, the house was charming and comfortable, the view from the porch breathtaking. We enjoyed seeing the horses, dogs, cats, chickens, iguanas, egrets, pelicans, mongoose and assorted small birds around the area. There are few things more relaxing than having morning coffee on the veranda and watching the pelicans fish for breadfast. Marcel and

William met us at the Vieques airport, took us to the car rental and the house. Along the way they oriented us to the small island for shopping, post office, grocery, farmers market, fish market, etc. Most helpfull.

The beaches are superb on Vieques. White sand, clear blue water and uncrowded.

perfect for a quiet family vacation.

Located on the north shore - we are very near the beach. Our cottage offers a great view of the ocean and rolling waves. Wild horses graze in the fields by our home and wander our road daily. For lovers of wildlife - this is the place. From hummingbirds to egrets that roost behind the cottage - we have birds and birders will not be disappointed as there is constant activity. Our two water gardens feature water lilies and we have daily visitors from local birds. When not at the cottage -

you can walk a dog at the humane shelter next door., find a new beach to explore, or go shelling - snorkeling or scuba diving. The eateries are diverse and if cooking in is a favorite - the cottage is amply supplied with pots - pans etc. We pride ourselves in providing you with a clean - comfortable home to come back to after a day exploring and enjoying the island.
