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, 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.

Great location and very nice cottage-lovely time

  • Submitted: Mar 17, 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 14, 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

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!

Lovely Cottage Home on Vieques

  • Submitted: Sep 6, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Stayed five night while on Vieques for a wedding and shared the lower level with another adult couple. Cottage was booked for guests by the groom. Super clean, well equipped and very homey. Just the right mix of tropical feel and practical function. Great outdoor area. Loved the pool and the resident iguana couple! Bedrooms were very spacious. Beds comfortable. Bathrooms and kitchen immaculate. We were picked up at the ferry port and brought to the cottage even though our ferry was super late arriving. Only caveat make sure if you are locked in that you have a set of keys inside to unlock yourself. Would love to return again! Everything a vacation home should be!

A Great Time!

  • Submitted: Mar 20, 2013

Bravos Boyz provided a greeter on touchdown, who was informative and accommodating. Starlight was as advertised, only more so. Clean, spacious, comfortable, and every thing was in working order with the exception of a few problems with the upstairs shower which we discussed with Frank and Cheryl and which was explained to our satisfaction.

The beaches were fantastic. Unspoiled, mile upon mile of soft sand and gentle surf with palm trees lining the shore for shade.

Bring your sun screen, and pack light-a couple of pair of shorts and tops and a swim suit will do with the much needed pair of ear plugs unless you enjoy the anvil chorus from the dogs and the roosters.

Walk to town along scenic shore road, at the end of which you will find the best bloody mary and breakfast at Mama Songa's. Take a drive along route 200 and turn left at 201, drive a couple of miles for the best dinner on island at Next Course. For the best pina colada, be sure to stop at the roadside stand across from the entrance to Sun Beach. It is only open on weekends, but boy, is it good!

And be prepared to leave heel marks on the tarmac as they haul you aboard your flight home.

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.

Bravos Beach Cottages is 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!A 'must-see' attraction on Vieques is the Bioluminescent Bay on the south side of the island, within the Nature Preserve.
