This is about as close to the perfect self-catering flat you will find! Tastefully and thoughtfully set out, our ground-floor flat had everything we could possibly desire for the perfect getaway by the sea. Spacious, clean and with all the little touches that make for a special experience. 100% recommended!

We stayed at Mary Lee's by the Sea (MLBTS) December 2015 and had a wonderful time. This was the right fit for our family, ages between 20 to 6 years old, and two adults. We loved being at the edge of the water. We also liked the vicinity to the west and south coasts. We were able to travel from... More

Thank you so much for your kind words - we appreciate it very much. I am sorry about the children - but while we try to let parents know when there are disruptions, we don't always hear everything. More

Very charming, felt like visiting grandma. Peaceful with no wifi, phones or TV. The problem was that our room was covered in bamboo from wall to wall and the floors with braided hay and it was all dusty!! Really dusty! The kids and I had allergies and finally came back sick. They need to vacuum floor, walls and ceiling.

I thank you for your comments. We do our best to keep them clean, but with the units being so open, I would agree that sometimes they are dustier than would like. I am sorry about your allergies. We do have other units that do not have the grass rugs, so if you were to return, let us know and... More

My wife & I stayed in the 'Encanto' room for a few nights. In general, the stay was a great experience, and we would recommend it to friends visiting the area. The staff was very accommodating, and the room was well furnished. The room was wonderfully quaint & quirky. It was a fun, inexpensive alternative from the typical hotel/resort experience.... More

Lovely hotel, well equiped apt., clean rooms, friendly staff, Guilligan's island in motor boat was practical, the kayaks were fun. Only advice when you reserve a room: ask for Sirena 1, this room has a nice tile floor and none of those straw like rugs that hold humidity and trigger allergy or azma. (Beware as most rooms are covered with... More

Visited this place this summer with my sister and our kids. Absolute wonder. Relaxing, lots to venture out and see. Bring your water proof camera, snorkle gear, and sunscreen. The locals will take you to Gilligans Island across the way for a steal, and very worth it. Bring plenty of ice and your cooler for the day. They have grills... More

Mary Lee's by the sea is truly a unique step above. We rented Pacifica and Alegre for Our three generation family. Both houses are adjacent and look out on the dock and Gilligan's Island. Pacifica has a huge porch and also a separate outdoor room for BBQ. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, pots and pans. The gas BBQ... More

This place was extremely nice, very spacious and comfortable. If you are looking for a place to watch TV, browse the internet (free Wi-Fi) then this isn't the place for you, as it doesn't offer any of that. This place is to relax, spend some good family time and to enjoy what mother nature has to offer. The only advice... More

Mary Lee's was our "splurge" accomodations for our anniversary trip to PR, but it was still reasonably priced for what we got. We stayed in the Encanto room, which was absolutely huge! Plus it walked right out to the ocean. The decor in the room is bright and tropical really making it into a paradise retreat. There is no wi-fi,... More
