Casa Descanso is an island style, rustic apartment on the first floor of our beach home; located on the property of Blue Island Divers (check us out on Trip Advisor, you will not be disappointed). Casa Descanso is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment, ocean front. Each bedroom has a queen size bed & closet area. The front porch has a covered dining area with ceiling fans, seating for four people and both gas & charcoal grills. You have full use of the property which includes a private dock, a beach with lounge chairs & hammocks, and a common area at the dive shop. Our divers paradise is just steps to the dive shop and for non-divers in your group they can relax on the beach in lounge chairs, hammocks or enjoy snorkeling from our pier. Do you have more than 4 in your party? We also have a ocean view, studio casita that sleeps 2 people and a garden view apartment that can sleep 5 guests. Also on property is the Salty Mango bar & grill.

Check In begins at 2pm and Check Out is by 11 am. This is your home away from home and the entire property is for your use.
Please note this is a diving operation and the filling of scuba tanks is limited between the hours of 8am and 9pm. Most generally this process is completed between 2pm and 5pm. However night dives do require the need to fill tanks at 8 am.
We live on property particular times of the year in the upstairs unit and will be available to assist when needed. Our customer relations staff, Maria, is available for any assistance when we are not on site. Blue Island Divers is open Monday-Saturday, 7:30am-5:30pm. Sunday's you will have the beach and premises for your use; however, the diving and bar and restaurant are closed.
From 6pm until 6:30am we have a night watchman on property as well.
We are located 10 minutes from Coxen hole and 10 minutes to West End in the quiet neighborhood of Sandy Bay. We are steps from the principal road which traverses the entire island. You can walk the beach for approximately a 1/2 mile in each direction and enjoy the tranquil breeze and beautiful mangroves or sand beach.
We have ample parking available if you rent a car; and if not, you're steps from being able to grab a taxi cab at the main road. We have specific taxi drivers available for tours when their schedule allows. Otherwise we recommend grabbing a taxi at the road.
Electricity is included with A/C usage limited to the time spent inside the unit. We request the units are shut off when not indoors. The space is quickly cooled by multiple units when you return.
**Many other listings do not include electricity with nightly rental and some do not have air conditioning.****
