Located on a 1/2 acre lot, Moonrise is part of the Bravos Beach Cottage compound of three rental units in two buildings, surrounding a swimming pool and gazebo, and set amid tropical gardens.
Moonrise Cottage is of newer construction and was designed by well-known architect Stanley Hutchinson.

Two loveseats in the living room convert to single beds, especially good for children and bringing the total of guests we can accommodate to 6.

The second bedroom is a very private haven on the the first floor. It has a King size bed and its own bathroom en suite, along with a private patio opening to the pool area and gardens.
Moonrise is great for two couples traveling together, also great for a family traveling with grandma and grandpa - mom, dad and the kids can sleep upstairs, with the kids on the sleeper sofas, while grandma and grandpa have their own space on the first floor.
The pool area is the outdoor focal point and is shared between the three units. Set amid tropical gardens, you can work on your tan poolside or relax in the gazebo for shelter from the sun. There are ample deck areas to comfortably accommodate many people. The pool is treated by a salt system converter that creates an environment with minimal chlorine - good for your skin, hair and swimsuit.

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, etc. 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!
