About Cheryl Donakowski and Frank Misplon
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
Why Cheryl Donakowski and Frank Misplon chose Vieques Island
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!
What makes this house unique
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
I rented all the units and brought the whole family...children and grandchildren. We had the amenities of a 5 star hotel with the privacy to be ourselves. The accommodations were excellent...pool a delight and a special treat for the children. Beaches galore, all kinds, private and secluded, snorkeling, public, waves, calm just great! Local food delicious, had to adjust to island time but no problems there. Everyone in our family is from age 67 - 1 had a fabulous stay and we would all do it again! It was a great bucket list vacation!
