Overview

Vieques Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

House, 7 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths (Sleeps 7-14)

Villa Chavaniac (formerly known as 'Bravos By The Sea') is a unique oceanfront property on Isla de Vieques. It is one of the few oceanfront vacation rentals and offers 180 degree views of the merging of the Atlantic Ocean with the Caribbean Sea and the islands of Culebra, Puerto Rico and El Yunque National Rainforest.

Villa Chavaniac is a 3,900 square foot paradise comprising two separate levels of living and sleeping accommodation. The main suite 'ESPACE' is at the ocean level, but there are two fully self contained suites on the second level, which we have called 'VERDURE' and 'SOLEIL'. These two additional suites provide you with the option of increasing the sleeping accommodation of Villa Chavaniac from six, ten or fourteen guests.

Villa Chavaniac sits directly on the oceanfront in the upscale beachside neighborhood of Bravos de Boston close to the main town of Vieques, Isabel II.

The property is thoughtfully designed with air conditioning throughout, but may be completely opened to the outdoors to enjoy the constant ocean breezes and nature sounds.

Villa Chavaniac boasts a beautiful salt water infinity pool, finished with glass tiles and located practically in the ocean. The pool sits directly on the ocean with the gentle waves lapping against the wall. There are ample terrace spaces with multiple seating and lounging areas, landscaped gardens, two outdoor showers, off street parking, electronic security, and your very own hammock hanging between two large palm trees in a private garden for a relaxing afternoon.

Throughout the entire property Villa Chavaniac offers full DISH Network TV, charcoal BBQ grills, land-line phones and high speed wireless internet and air conditioning for when you might need it.

Additionally, there are coolers, umbrellas and chairs for the beach as well as colorful beach towels.

Suite ESPACE is located at ocean level and is the primary residence. It has three-bedrooms and three-and-one-half bathrooms that have been remodelled to perfection.

The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped and you will be in your element preparing appetizers, dinners and cocktails. Three bedrooms with full ensuite bathrooms create the perfect environment for any combination of house guests. Two of the bedroom suites open to the pool terrace and ocean and the third bedroom has ocean and pool views. The flooring throughout is of white coral stone with matte blue accent tiles and blended tastefully with mahogany doors and muted paint colors. The furnishings are high end with unique pieces of art and Caribbean antiques.

Suite SOLEIL is located on the second level of Villa Chavaniac and has a large outdoor terrace for outside dining, relaxing on a lounge chair, or simply taking in the views of the pool, Atlantic Ocean merging with the Caribbean Sea and the Island of Culebra. The two bedooms, one with a king size bed and one with a queen size bed both have air conditioning, and there are two full bathrooms. There is also a galley kitchen, living room, dining room, and private entry.

Suite VERDURE is directly adjacent to SOLEIL, has its very own large ocean front terrace with outdoor dining and lounge chairs for relaxing and enjoying the dramatic views of the Atlantic Ocean merging with the Caribbean Sea, as well as the main island of Puerto Rico and El Yunque National Rainforest. The two bedrooms, one with a king size bed and one with a queen size bed, both both offer air conditioning, and there is one full bathroom in addition to a galley kitchen, dining room, living room and private entry.

Villa Chavaniac is professionally managed.

This oceanfront property is one of the most popular rentals on Vieques Island. It can accommodate large groups at a reasonable price.

Best VRBO rental ever

  • 5 of 5

The staff was spectacular at communicating with us upon arrival. Jose drove us from San Juan to Ceiba to catch the flight to Vieques. He was great. We had a large family, so it was worth it to drive to Ceiba and catch the flight there, plus we were extending our stay in Fajardo so it was cost effective and more convenient! Flying out of San Juan is better if its just a few and you are going directly back to the airport. Ron picked us up from the airport and we had a local rental car waiting for us. The house was very well stocked, beautifully decorated, and the beds were superb. I always review the beds, because most rentals skimp on bedding, not this unit. We had great pillow, great beds, and great bedding. The house is large so accommodating my large family of 7 adults was great. The house is within walking distance of several restaurants and a small store, but a rental car is a must to fully appreciate what Vieques has to offer. There was great internet service and satellite which we never watched. We were very busy during the day exploring the island and enjoyed cooking, visiting, playing the games in the game cabinet, and listening to music on the great portable sound system that TV was the last thing we wanted to see. There was a great new washer and two dryers. This was so helpful given the weight limits on the flights. It helps to be able to do laundry during a long vacation. The grounds were beautifully kept and very lush with great lighting.

One side note.....if you have not been to Puert Rico before, I must say you will either grow to love the little Coqui frog or you will grow to hate it. They are loud and very annoying or soothing depending on your point of view. Let's just say that a pair of earplugs might be a good idea if quiet sleep is your desire.... Or just drink heavily enough to go into a deep coma so you won't hear them. I hope you like horses too because they wander the streets of Vieques just like dogs....I'm not kidding. Our oldest daughter kept trying to catch one, but was unsuccessful.

The pool was a great added bonus and the view was fantastic. We just hated waking up to that horrible view of blue water and Palm trees everyday......NOT! We loved every minute of our stay here and we're so sad to leave....

Amazing Villa.....We will be back!!!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do justice to this amazing place. The salt water pool, the ocean, the gardens and the villa.. all breathtaking.

Both the main level Espace and the upstairs units Soleil and Verdure were great. The house is well appointed with stunning white upholstered furniture throughout. We were very impressed by the quality of the furnishings…………….Not your Average beach house!!!

We loved both the down stairs and upstairs units. Upstairs had very modern poured concrete bathrooms, lovely overstuffed arm chairs and large balconies that over looked the ocean.

Truly, a great place for a group as we could all be together but have our own space to relax in when we wanted.

The only bad thing about our trip was that we couldn’t stay longer !!!!

Gorgeous, oceanfront house

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time. David was wonderful helping me to arrange travel times, jeep rental with airport pickup, and restaurant suggestions. The main house was beautiful and all three bedrooms were exquisite. The 2nd suite upstairs was o.k. But did not matter to those friends since we were mostly hanging out in the main house. The bathrooms upstairs were missing mirrors and had peeling paint, but the bedrooms were o.k. The main house is really where the beauty is and where you will be spending most of your time between the well equipped kitchen, dining room, and saltwater pool. Note that the outdoor hot tub was not working but we knew this going in. There was detergent for the dishwasher and washer and dryer which were front-loading full size units,, all sorts of glassware, plastic cups for poolside, a couple of pitchers, and really all of the utensils one would need. We whipped up several delicious meals and pitchers of margaritas. The town is a short walk in so you don't always have to rely on the jeep. Several excellent restaurants, and it's easy to get to the south side to explore the lovely beaches.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My entire experience exceeded my expectations. David and Dennis were a pleasure to work with. When we arrived at the home, Dennis was there to meet us and walked us through a very detailed orientation of the house. Prior to our arrival, I asked Dennis if he could go grocery shopping for us and he did which enabled us to relax our first night instead of worrying about getting essentials. I was astounded when we went outside for the first time to see the view from the pool area. We spent most of our time in the pool area. The house was furnished with more than the essentials and was spotless. We had a party of five and this suite fit everyone very comfortably and allowed personal time. All of the bathrooms were gorgeous. The house was a private oasis in a city. I loved the fact that we had floating noodles, beach chairs and umbrellas for our entire party. We visited several restaurants that were recommended and enjoyed all of them.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I recently returned from a week long stay at Villa Chavaniac and it was everything we hoped for and more! The home is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable - we could not have asked for a nicer place to stay! The owners have thought of every detail to make a great vacation (beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers etc). We started planning our next visit the night we arrived! The pool and deck are beautiful and the location can't be beat. Quiet neighborhood on the ocean... everything was amazing - I would give 10 stars if I could! You couldn't pick a better place to stay.

The island has a lot to offer, with several beautiful beaches (most of them in a natural reserve), the bioluminescent bay, activities like snorkeling, horseback riding, and several very good restaurants . You can have a glimpse of the island here. You can reach it from San Juan with a 20 mn flight (there are several flights a day), also by ferry. The house is located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods, Bravos de Boston, with easy access to the town of Isabela II, with shops, restaurants, bars, and ferry access.
