At the Waves is located on the North (Atlantic) coast of the Isla Vieques, a few minutes drive from ferry and downtown Isabel Segunda. It is tucked away in a residential neighborhood. The property is located on the beachfront, very nicely landscaped, has a nice, clean swimming pool outside and a wonderful view of the ocean.
Ian, the owner, is a great host. He was quick, responsive, and helpful with our booking and all questions about the island. We rented the 3x bedroom unit on the second floor. It was spacious for six people, clean, and comfortable with a great balcony.
The ocean breeze was very refreshing and there was no need for AC in the bedrooms at night. The beds were comfortable. Each night we felt asleep to the sounds of the waves and Coqui frogs. The kitchen had everything that we needed. There were even blender for mixing pina colada, coffee, and condiments in the fridge left from previous vacationers. A washer and dryer on site (no extra charge), free WiFi, and TV were also available. Beach chairs, towels and cooler were a nice addition.
Best of all, this property really is on the beach. The wind and waves are bigger than on the Caribbean side, but beach is still very pleasant for sunning, shelling, and strolling. The villa is conveniently located, Esperanza is within 20 minutes and all of the spectacular beaches are within a 20-30 minute drive.Our favorite snorkeling places were Secret and Green beach, very interesting Black beach and a small trail to it. The Bio bay and mangrove tour with Jeffrey from Abe’s are not to be missed.
We highly recommend At the Waves for a relaxing, comfortable, and carefree stay on Vieques.
