Bravos de Boston House Rental Photos and Description

Vieques-2 Masters, Bonus small bedrooms, Amazing views

Located in the popular Bravos de Boston neighborhood, The ocean view is spectacular from this previous marine artist's 3.5 bedroom, 3 bath home, overlooking the harbor of Isabel II, and across to the main island of Puerto Rico and the islands of St Thomas and Culebra.

Sit on the open terrace in the morning and watch the fishing boats and ferries come and go, or catch an amazing sunset in the evening. Listen to the sound of the ocean and the coquis(and the occasional rooster). Enjoy the natural setting and private location. Banana plants, Lime bushes, Papaya trees and Bamboo next to the deck on the property.

On the main floor leading out to the terrace are two living spaces, the kitchen and a master bedroom with a king bed and bathroom. Behind the kitchen on the main floor are 2 smaller bedrooms, one with twin beds and the other a single twin (suitable mostly for children)that share a bath and a laundry area with washer/dryer.

On the lower level, with a separate entrance, is a large bedroom with queen bed and en suite bath.

The home is perfect for an extended family with children, or two couples who like having their own suites. The kitchen is amply stocked, and we have contracted some recent upgrades to add to the comfort of your stay. Flat Screen Satellite TV, free wifi, new deck furniture to name a few, new windows and sliding doors, among other things!

It can fit up to 7 total with children. The 2 smaller bedrooms with 3 beds in the back, being suitable for children. We do not recommend more then 4 adults in the home to stay comfortably.

About Joshua Ewing

Alma Vista is owned by 2 friendly families, the Evans and the Chamagnes

Joshua Ewing purchased this house in 2009

Why Joshua Ewing chose Vieques Island

We had rented this lovely home for a number of years during our travels to Vieques. When the chance came to purchase it, we jumped at it for its incredible views!

What makes this house unique

The unparalleled views really! Its a quiet setting, but always a rooster or two!

Getting together with family on the terrace, cooking a gourmet meal and watching the ferry come in and the sun go down....picking bananas, or papayas in the yard..

Best View

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Kikito and followed him to the house. I had been to Vieques 4 other times. The view from Alma Vista literally takes your breath away. Nothing but water, the ferry and Puerto Rico in the background. The house had everything we needed for a perfect week. We ate out 1/2 the time. Coqui Fire is still my favorite. We also enjoyed fish tacos and rum punches at Bananas. Sunset cocktails at Al's Mar Azul on the deck or at Alma Vista were enjoyed daily. We fed the iguanas at Mamasonga's from our salads.

The beaches are perfect for walking, especially Playa Grande. We snorkeled at blue, green and red beaches. You will need to bring your own equipment or rent from Black Beards. The horses came and mowed the grass several times and the neighbor's dog visited daily. Coqui frogs seemed so loud at first! I miss them now. Please rent a car! The hill to the house is steep, and there are so many beautiful beaches to visit. We plan on coming back next year to Alma Vista.

Panoramic view

  • 5 of 5

Terrific place to vacation with 4 - 6 people. The view from the terrace is outstanding, the house is comfortable, spacious and within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Small beach (also within walking distance) for those days when you don't feel like going to the usual beaches. Can't think of a better place to relax and enjoy Vieques.

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Twice now I’ve stayed at Alma Vista with my family and friends. We all enjoyed this vacation rental enormously! The typically Caribbean style house is spacious, clean, comfortable, and just beautiful. You’ll find a well-organized kitchen, good laundry facilities, really comfortable beds and there’s even a fascinating assortment of good reading material. Best of all is the huge balcony with a panoramic view of the ocean through a flowering tropical mango grove. It’s breathtaking in the early morning light and perfect for the spectacular sunsets every evening. Alma Vista is right in the village of Isabella Segunda but surrounded by greenery we felt private and protected. The location is just right for easy walks to shops, restaurants and local beaches then it’s a quick drive to the spectacular big beaches on the other side of the island. The house manager, Kikito, knows everything you need to know or find in Vieques. He’s always available, helpful and very friendly. We loved everything about Alma Vista. I’m afraid it’s spoiled us for any other kind of vacation.

Charming villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as 2 couples in this lovely home. Alma vista was well equipped with comfortable beds, lots of indoor and outdoor space and beautiful views from the large terrace. We ended up eating at home most evenings because there was no place better to be watching the sunset. The villa is well decorated and comfortable. The villa would be perfect for as many as 3 couples as there is a separate downstairs suite. The owners had provided lots of info to ensure our stay went well.

Incredible views and outstanding value

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed at Alma Vista recently. We had stayed there a few years ago when it had different owners. This very well kept villa has exceptional privacy along with amazing views of the main island, Culebra, St Thomas, the Vieques lighthouse, the ferries coming in and going out. It has a roomy piazza where we ate most of our meals. We would have liked a gas BBQ but we cooked some great meals in the charcoal one. The new owners have added a tv, internet, painted inside and fixed everything up with new linens and kitchen gear. We love this little piece of paradise and will be back again this winter. We think the value of this property on Vieques is hard to beat!!
