Über dieses Inserat
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.
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.
Zugang für Gäste
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!
Interaktion mit Gästen
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.
We love that our neighborhood is close to the heart of Isabel. We walk everywhere... to the store, restaurants, beach, lighthouse, fort, ferry and fish market.
We love that during the day we have the usual noises of a small town, from laughter to loud music, to children playing in the street and horses (as well as dogs, chickens and cats) walking up and down the street at all hours of the day and night.
We love that we can hear the ocean below, the tree frogs above, and the wind in the trees.
We love the warm ocean breezes and the fact that you can dry your clothes on the back porch railing in 60 minutes or less.
Most of all, we love the feeling of community that we have in Vieques!
Isabel Segunda, or Isabel II (also called Isabel, "town", or the "pueblo") is a walking town. We encourage you to walk everywhere and often and see the sights and smells and sounds of our wonderful little town.
To get to the Caribbean beaches, you will need to hire a publico (like a taxi), a taxi, or rent a car. Of course, if you are on foot and don't want the hassle of a vehicle, Sea Glass Beach is only three minutes away. We typically walk there every afternoon for a swim.
The Caribbean beaches are oh-so-nice, but other than Sun Bay, facilities are very limited. Bring everything you will need including water and sunscreen. We have four beach chairs, beach towels, and a cooler for your use.
If you are not into walking, and don't want to take a publico or taxi, the nearest car rental company is within walking distance (Vieques Car Rental) and Avis is just a bit further down the road. During the high season (December to April) we encourage you to make your reservations well in advance. Rental cars rent for $50 to $80 a day (or more) on the island.
Finding the house can sometimes be difficult for the drivers of taxis and publicos, so if you need to give a resident directions on how to find Sal del Mar, try this...
"The address is 511 Calle Baldorioty de Castro. Look for a two story blue house next to Guido's house, who used to work for the post office.
La dirección es Calle Baldorioty de Castro 511. Busque una casa azul de dos pisos junto a la casa de Guido, que solía trabajar para la oficina de correos."
Another option would be to have the driver meet you at a specific location, such as Coqui Fire or Buen Provencio Provecho (both two blocks away).
Good luck and have fun!

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.
