About Mary Vega

For years I have vacationed in Hutchinson Island and fell in love with quaint Jensen Beach and Historic Downtown Stuart.The minute I would cross the bridge into Hutchinson Island it was like leaving all the stress of City life behind. After losing my father to cancer in 2013 his advice on finding time to relax made me take the plunge to search for this home away from home on the beach. I offer this home to those who also need to get away, whether you're coming from up North for a few months or weeks, or to locals that just need an escape. I hope you will enjoy this home and Hutchinson Island as much as I do.

Mary Vega purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Mary Vega chose Nettles Island

Nettles offers so many amenities, people are super friendly, you don't have to leave the Island if you don't want to, everything you need is there. And, if you do want to venture out there's plenty to do in close by Jensen Beach and Stuart. You're 2 hours from Miami, 2 hours to Daytona Beach, Disney Theme Parks and Universal.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I came to Florida for my parent's surprise 50th Anniversary party not only did I have a memorable time with friends and family I had not seen in years, I had the most enjoyable stay at the cottage. The cottage was clean, bright and spacious. The kitchen was fully equipped and there were lots of beach towels. The golf cart was so nice to use to travel around Nettles Island and to the beach. Everyone was friendly. The owner was very helpful, promptly answered any questions I had and was very accommodating. I would highly recommend this rental. I am looking forward to my next stay.

We stayed here for a couple of days after a short cruise. From first contact the owner was helpful and kind. The decor was perfect for a vacation getaway and the place was much larger than we expected and it was stocked with absolutely everything you would need. We had 2 adults and 3 teenage girls and there was plenty of room to relax and enjoy. We loved exploring on the golf cart and the pools and beach were amazing! Bring some extra bags because the beach was abundant with sea shells! A perfect relaxing way to end a vacation. We would stay here again.

Much Needed Family Time

  • 5 of 5

While needing to get away with the recent passing of my Dad this was the perfect getaway for me and my girls. The cottage had everything that we needed. My girls enjoyed the pools and beach. It was nice having the golf cart for trips to the club house. The little grocery store/restaurant was great when we wanted a quick meal and didn't want to go far. We will definitely be staying here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying in my cottage in Nettles Island. Totally understand your wanting to get away after your father's passing, the reason why I bought this place was also as an escape after my own passed away a few years ago. So glad your girls enjoyed it during the Christmas break and I so look forward to having you back in the future! Many blessings to you and your family for 2017!

Charming, quaint, felt like home, awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I made contact with Mary more than seven months ago, I knew there was something special about this home. I have used VRBO for many years this is one of the most enjoyable stays. It was a perfect location we had lunch at CR Chicks and Squared Grouper. This rental was so comfortable we had the rest of our meals at home or what felt like our home. We went to the pool by the ocean we sat by the ocean we walked around the community we met wonderful neighbors we can't say enough. Thank you Mary it was decorated beautifully for the Christmas season and we appreciated it we look forward to coming back again in the future happy holidays to you and to all your guests I hope they enjoy their stay it as much as we did. 😎򓠠This was a five star stay thank you
