This was great. D'Arla was quick to respond to all communication, which was a great start to booking a stay! The studio was big, open, and clean. Basics (plates, utensils) were provided as well as unexpected additions like beach towels, a small cooler, beach/yoga mats, snorkeling gear, sunscreen and shampoo. A serious life saver if needed! Parking was safe and secure. D'Arla has an entire binder full of maps, notes, do's/don'ts, places to go and walking distance and times for all! Seriously amazing! Will CERTAINLY book again if I return!
This was a very affordable, cute, cozy, and well equipped place to stay. Pretty much everything we needed was there.There was no clock, TV, or radio, instead we got to listen to the sounds of the island. The owner was great, the location perfect. We liked it so much that we booked it again for our winter getaway in 2017. Great place for 2 people to stay!
D'Arla is the quintessential hostess, making sure you are familiarized with the locale and personally gives a quick tour of the area, with points of interest for dining, exploring, relaxing, and in general making the most of your visit. After that she's just in the background if you have question. Truly a valuable asset and friend to have on the island.
It will not be our last trip to this beautiful island and location!!
You helped make the most of our stay
This was our first time staying at Quaint Studio by the Sea, and we truly enjoyed every aspect of this cozy but spacious place. It had everything we needed and the price was very affordable for us. Plus D'arla was able to rent us a car, which was very convenient, it allowed us to venture to the beach everyday. She is a great person and host who is very helpful when needed, and very knowledgeable about the island. We had a great visit this time, probably our best one out of the 6 years that we have been going to Vieques. We shall return to this very spot next year, can't wait!
From the onset, D'Arla B. communicated well to help us find our way from the ferry to her. After meeting us, she gave us a brief but informative driving tour of the town. Then she showed us to our clean, nice looking, and pleasant room. It even included some popcorn and Ramen noodles for us! She gave us a thorough briefing on the places of the island and important things to know about it. She provided us with a recommendation for where to stay our next night on the island, and we ended up taking her recommendation and were pleased with it.

When we go back to Vieques we hope to be staying here again. DArla was great. She gave us all the info we needed to have a great vacation.
The bathroom wasn't clean, rugs smelled of urine and needed to wipe down. The owner was awesome, getting us to the room and very personable. We only stayed one night, so I cleaned the bathroom myself and put the rug outside. The stove was grease covered and had a hair. Didn't use kitchen to cook. It was very very hot, even at night with fans. Couldn't imagine staying during summer months. Was decorated very well and wanted to love it. Unfortunately, if something like the bathroom and kitchen is dirty, hard to feel comfortable there.
