Starlight Cottage:

We live in northern Michigan, where we all appreciate a warm, sunny escape in the winter! We owned two vacation rental properties on St. John in the US Virgin Islands, and as it became more developed and crowded we looked for another island that would be as quiet and peaceful as St. John was a few years ago. We found Vieques to be the perfect place for us - plenty of great (protected) beaches, lots of great restaurants, wonderful people, and a lot of peace and quiet!

Cheryl Donakowski and Frank Misplon purchased this house in 2011

Bravos Beach Cottages is a great place for a big group - we host a lot of family reunions and extended family vacations - but we also rent the units individually so it's a great place for a smaller group or family. We've had a great time remodeling it and turning the gardens into the lush, tropical Paradise it is now. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

BBC is in a great location - just a mile from downtown Isabel Segunda, the main town on the island so you are close to restaurants, shopping, groceries, ATM. And we are only a block - an easy 3-4 minute walk - from La Chata beach. We are one of the few properties on the island that can accommodate 18 people with lots of great gathering spaces AND a lot of room to spread out.

Fabulous Stay at Bravos Beach Cottages - Sunset

  • Submitted: Mar 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
From the moment Thom picked us up from the ferry and brought us to avis to get our rental Jeep, I knew it was going to be a great trip. With his friendly smile, Thom immediately made us feel welcome and shared his knowledge of the island. Great tips on dinner, beaches, etc.

Our cottage far exceeded my expectations. Everything was thoughtfully laid out. The landscaping was beautiful! I loved having our own private covered patio, with seating for 6, set with luscious greenery. I had my breakfast here each day with our family. The hammock was and added treat. There was a Hibiscus bush right outside the kitchen window with a hummingbird that loved to visit. Banana trees, little stone paths..delightful grounds.

The pool was clean and sparkling and there was a community patio here where you could relax under an awning, and grill out if you like. There were 3 families, including us, during our stay. We had the lower unit. We never once heard the family of 4 which was sharing the other half of our cottage, except if we met and talked outside about that day's adventures.

Beds were comfortable. Big bonus for us was the cottage nicely held our family of 5. It was spacious. Kitchen was nicely accomodated with washer and dryer, dishwasher, full refrigerator, and a blender. Next time I would love to come back with family and friends and rent the other two units. This was our first time to ever rent a home and we loved it.

In addition, we love Vieques. It is hard to find more beautiful beaches anywhere in the world. Everyday is a new adventure trying to see and enjoy all of the beaches. The bio bay was great. The kids also loved horseback riding on the beach. We will definitely be back. The kids asked if we can come every year.

Deep Relief

  • Submitted: Mar 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
From the moment we were met at the airport and throughout our stay we were with comfortable friends.
The house was large and small enough to fit quite right
Food and drink was on hand when we arrived and arrangements to have excellent meals delivered was easy.
I imagine this is what Key West was like when Hemmingway lived there, somewhere important but at a better pace.

Great location and very nice cottage-lovely time

  • Submitted: Mar 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
My husband and I stayed at Starlight along with two other couples for a wedding. There was plenty of room and privacy for the six of us. We had two big jeeps rented between the 3 couples and there was plenty of parking space too. Great pool, and we had a nice large deck to sun (or with plenty of shade on the side). We spent most of our time at beaches enjoying the amazing weather or at events for the wedding we were there to attend--but all of the time back at the cottage was relaxing, mostly b/c of the nice, clean, comfortable Starlight cottage.

Above and Beyond to Get Us a Full Week in Paradise

  • Submitted: Mar 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
What can I say? Started planning our trip 8 months in advance to beautiful Vieques. Found Starlight on Vrbo. The owner, Cheryl, was very friendly answering all my questions regarding the Island, accommodations and traveling with our 3 young kids. She was more than helpful setting up Starlight for our family (providing a pak n play for the baby). She also easily allowed us the change our dates just 2 months prior to our arrival. Then our flight gets canceled due to snow and won't be able to get the Vieques until 2 days later. Cheryl moved a personal trip around and made sure we still got a full week at Starlight!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you Cheryl for saving our vacation. We are so grateful. Bravos Boyz rolled flawlessly with our changes as well. Escorting us from the airport, to the car rental, tour of town (suggestions for fish, groceries, restaurants, etc) and then to Starlight. 5 star service and such convenience for us and the kids. Accommodations were clean, safe, and convenient. Every amenity is available as listed plus some. All around 5 stars, especially for families.

Great Accommodations and Service!

  • Submitted: Jan 7, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We rented the 3 cottages for the whole family! we were 13 people, 4 couples and 5 teenagers. The adults included my parents (78 years old), and my sisters with her husbands (in their 30s, 40s, 50s). Bravos management people at Vieques were great! They contacted me a few days before to make sure the bed arrangement by cottage was adequate, number of queen, single beds needed, etc. Laura was at the aiport in Vieques when we arrived and ready to drive us to the Car Rental, and then to the property. She explained everything about the cottages to everyone and gave great recommendations for restaurants and beaches. My father had a medical emergency and with a phone call to alberto Munoz (mananger) he got the medication needed (after the pharmacy had closed) and delivered it to my father! We were so grateful!!!

Regarding the cottages, I recommend Sunset for older people or people with babies that would have a problem to go up and down the stairs many times a day. (Originally my father was supposed to be at Moonrise but due to the stairs, and walking on a narrow pathway next to the pool to get to the cottage, we switched him to Sunset and he was very happy). Needless to say, the 3 cottages are great and you will be happy in any of them. Starlight cottage is beautiful! It has a lot of light (and stairs too!). And Moonrise cottage is the newest cottage, it has 1 bedroom/bathroom downstairs (nothing else) and up the stairs the living room/kitchen and main bedroom/bathroom). The 3 kitchens are fully equipped! We cooked a lot, lobster, fish, pancakes, etc. There are beach towels for everyone, and 8 beach chairs. We just bought at Black Beard Sports some beach umbrellas and were ready to hit the beaches! Which are Beautiful! We are all from Venezuela (living in the us) and we can tell you these beaches are worth visiting! Blue beach, Red Beach, Playa Prieta, Green Beach...! :) And then coming home to Bravos Beach Cottages: You are guaranteed a great time!

Vieques is the last of the unspoiled Caribbean Islands. If you want golf and nightlife, this island is NOT for you. If you want empty beaches, quiet evenings overlooking the tropical landscape, great restaurants and nice people, come to Vieques.

The Bravos Beach Cottages are located in the beach-side Bravos de Boston neighborhood, just outside of the main town of Isabel Segunda and convenient to restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, atm, etc. It is also only about 15 minutes to the world-class beaches in the Nature Preserve and about 20 minutes from Esperanza, a charming fishing-village on the south shore with waterfront restaurants, shops and water sports.

A 'must see' attraction on Vieques is the Bioluminescent Bay on the south side of the island, within the Nature Preserve. Microscopic creatures in the water emit a beautiful, unearthly glow during night-time kayak or pontoon boat tours. It's considered one of the best of it's kind in the world! Guided tours are available and highly recommended!
