“Absolutely Beautiful”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in January 2015

We absolutely loved our stay. We have visited Vieques before but this house was an amazing stay. So peaceful and quiet (except for the shelter dogs barking which we did not mind). Walk to the water. A short drive to everything . The owner was very accommodating and helpful! They were there to meet us as soon as we got off the Ferry and show us to the house. We will definitely be staying again!

“Torture By The Sea”
Reviewed 27 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

people found this review helpful

Warning! Warning! Warning!
If you have saved your hard earned money to go on a vacation and you do not wish to feel you have wasted it, move on with your search to another place to rent on this beautiful island. If you choose to ignore this warning you do so now with eyes wide open.
You may read about dogs barking here in other reviews, but we ignored them thinking it was the odd dog barking as there are all over the island as well as roosters crowing and the people were winers or just used to home where it is relatively quiet. WRONG! This is the island's Humane Society compound next door to this house and particularly in the early morning hours at feeding time the decibel level is deafening. My first morning was being woken at 6:10 AM, shooting straight out of bed wondering what was about to come through the walls! This goes on and off throughout the entire day with it going near quiet to where no mater how much noise you make or how loud you turn up music you cannot drown out the noise of barking, yelping and howling dogs. They do quiet down some evenings that you can sit outdoors for a while to enjoy the sounds of the ocean and watch the wild horses in the pasture next door. Also, at night they are quiet most of the time, however the odd time one will start to howl and others will join in, not the full 747 decibel level with all hundred or more going, but still can be annoying, we were all suffering from sleep depravation after two weeks in this place. Too be fair, as one can be after having one's holiday ruined, without the dogs this would be a perfect little house to stay reasonably on the island. You can hear the sea, the house is in very nice repair, you only have a short walk to the beach, and the wild horses are great to watch. In the manual that is left with the tenants to use as their guide to the house and the island, the owner puts the onus on tenants to call and complain to the Humane Society about the noise of the dogs which to me is completely wrong. This rental should have a notice in it's add stating that there are dogs being kept in large numbers next door and from time to time it will be bothersome. To call this Tranquility By The Sea is misleading and wrong. Unless you live under a jet's path in landing and taking off and are used to loud continuous noise, I would look elsewhere and even pay a bit more for accommodations you will enjoy your holiday and actually have some rest and relaxation while on vacation. Hope this helps.

Warning! Warning! Warning!
There are people who should never be allowed to rent a rental home for their vacation.

It is difficult for me to understand how those renters could justify writing such a review when they never communicated to me that there was a problem during their entire stay. I was never called even once to be informed that these renters had issues with anything! I do want to clarify that the cottage book does recommend that I should be called!!" - - - and it provides my phone numbers. "I can't fix what I don't know is broken!!!. Their stay should have been a pleasant one but their decision to not call me was costly to their vacation and costly to the reputation of my cottage. It was all so totally unnecessary. For the record: It saddens me to think that this is the first time I have had to write an apology to any guest in the 12 years that I have owned the cottage. These renters removed protective table covers from a new table which left water marks on the wood. They removed and destroyed decorations that were in the rooms and broke the wooden glider on the front veranda.

In regard to their opinion that the name of the cottage is misleading - I beg to differ. When I can enjoy watching 8 hummingbirds, 4 banana keets, and a hundred bees co-habitating at the same time while feeding on my bottle brush tree - - (when it is in full bloom) or watch the horses grazing in the field next to the cottage and hear them whinnying and hear their hooves pounding the pavement out front when the herd is running up the road, or watch a flock of white egrets flying in groups to roost in the trees out back at dusk and listen to the sound of the surf and the song of night birds - - - it truly is "tranquility" and it is bliss!

“Bargain Beach Rental”
Reviewed 10 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015
1
person found this review helpful

I and my 2 adult children rented this house for a week in February. Yes the dogs bark but never so much that we were disturbed. It was necessary to keep the fan running in the bedroom or you would have a hard time sleeping late. My son slept in the casita and didn't seem to have any problems sleeping at all.The covered porch was ideal for hanging out and we loved hearing the waves crashing on the beach. We had planned to snorkel a lot but the surf at the beach was so wonderful, we had a hard time making ourselves drive anywhere. You will need a car - although the kids did walk back and forth to town a few times. There are also cabs available if you don't want to drive. Gloria was great arranging for us to picked up at the airport and taken to the grocery store the first night as we got in too late to rent a a car. It was a great rental for us - and a real bargain when you look at other properties.

“Well equipped rental house with an ocean view and barking, barking, barking.”
Reviewed 2 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I will start by saying I enjoyed my stay at this cottage. It is well equipped with kitchen-ware, sporting items such as boogie boards and snorkel gear(I always bring my own). There is an additional bunkhouse and grill so it would be a great location for large families. The place was clean and well secured. The deck is spacious and great for "zoning out". The yard is ample by Vieques standards in my opinion.
However, after your first day, you will definitely find the rental title of "Tranquility" at least ironic if not downright intended to amuse. The humane society dogs next door bark at the slightest whim and once a few start, the seemingly hundred plus canines all join the party which can at times sound like the biggest dogfight you can imagine. I'm an animal lover and did actually visit the shelter where I got to hear them "first-hand" which was deafening causing me to wonder how the ladies working there can still hear anything at all . To be fair, even in Esperanza, dogs are allowed to roam in packs or bark incessantly chained to gates so it was not a deal breaker for me and it was a nice change of pace to stay on the north side of the island. Gloria was very accommodating after a winter storm delayed us and was very easy to communicate with as our plans had became more and more fluid.
FYI: The "beach" is close, just a short walk from the house, but beach areas on the north side of the island are far more rugged than the south.
