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.
