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!

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!

Perfect!

  • Submitted: Sep 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
This was the perfect place. This property is georgous!! everything was extremely well kept and clean. The decor is very nice, the beds are sooo confortable!. It was better than I had imagined. We were 19 in total staying in the property and the listing said it would only fit 14, but there plenty of beds and sofa beds to accomadate exactly 19 people. the pool area is great cause the BBQ is right next to it..needless to say that the kids loved the pool. Customer service is great as well. We had an issue with the stove and it turned out that the gas tanks were empty, but we called and in no more than an hour they were there with full tanks! When we first arrived they told me that the pool had justr been cleaned and i asked if they would come back and clean it in a few days for us since we had a lot of kids and the pool would probably get cloudy..she told me to call her if that would happen. Well I didnt even had to call cause after three days in the property the pool guy came and cleaned it again. I am very impressed with the management company that runs this property, they are experts. I live in San Juan Puerto Rico and have rented in Vieques before, but this one has by far the best one yet. I reccomend this with my eyes closed..you will love it!

Nights at Starlight

  • Submitted: Feb 14, 2013
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
My two daughters and I spent 5 lovely nights at Starlight. My younger daughter chose that particular cottage because of the decorating and it was nice. The cottage and compound were just as described online and we enjoyed the stay very much. Amenities included plenty of beach towels and very comfortable beach chairs for those staying in the compound. The pool area was also lovely. The washer/dryer were great to have and we utilized only carry on luggage after the owner recommended that and washing what we brought. Saved a chunk of change being able to do that. The management agent met us at the airport and took us to pick up our rental car. She led us to the house (thank heavens for that as the one drawback to the island is the lack of a really accurate map.) She recommended some good restaurants, sights to see, and services we could use. The location of the house required a car to reach dining, etc, but it was also very nice. A block away was a lovely little beach where I encountered three of the paso fino horses who roam freely around the island. Nice to take a beach walk every morning. And the view from the 2nd floor patio of the ocean was wonderful, as well as the constant sea breeze. We enjoyed the entire stay and had no problems worth mentioning. We loved the island and hope to return again next year. There were lovely beaches, snorkeling, horse-back riding, and the amazing bio-luminescent bay we canoed one night.

Bliss

  • Submitted: Jul 24, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2010
A Bravos Boyz staff member met us at the airport just as we stepped off the plane and drove us to Moonrise. Several times during our stay we had questions - once when the Internet went down during a storm - and each time Bravos Boyz provided answers and help right away. We were at Moonrise during a quiet time and no one was renting the other house, so we had the pool to ourselves the whole time. Nevertheless, we thought it would be fun for an extended family - possibly ours - to rent both houses and enjoy the space together. We were impressed that the pool service quietly arrived and cleaned the chlorine-free pool about every other day while we were there, very necessary after rain storms when the leaves blew around. The house was tastefully furnished and clean and the bed had a comfortable mattress and soft cotton sheets. There were bars of oatmeal soap in the bathroom plenty of bath and beach towels. The washer and dryer and all the appliances worked well. The only down side to the house was noise from a barking dog across the street, but we had the air conditioner on and really didnt notice it much. One thing you have to get used to on Vieques is lots of noisy dogs and roosters, and we were prepared for that, having visited two years earlier. We were also warned about theft, so were very careful to keep all the doors deadbolts locked and the car inside the padlocked gate at all times. We have rented a lot of houses in various countries and sometimes they dont live up to the photographs, but the Moonrise was even better than the photos. We slept like rocks and had a wonderful time. I would definitely go back to Bravos Boyz for our next visit to Vieques. They are a class act.

Great Value, Great Service

  • Submitted: Jul 24, 2012

We started off looking at El Conquistador outside of San Juan, and didnt want to pay for a new car to spend a week in a warm, gated community. Then we found Vieques and Bravo Boyz and Sunset and are completely thrilled with all 3. Vieques has as astonishing number of amazing beaches, good restaurants and lots of wild horses. Bravo Boyz picked us up at the Ferry, told us all about the local shops and took us to our car rental place and Sunset. When a light fixture didnt work, they replaced it same day. Sunset was a very nice two BD house 5 minutes from Isabel Segunda, 20 minutes from Esperanza. The pool gave it a great atmosphere to hang out at, and the presence of two others families from the continental us -there are 3 houses in the compound - made it more comfortable than an isolated house would have been.
