About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, sleeps 4 in beds, 2 more on pullout sofas

Sunset Cottage is located in the lovely beach-side neighborhood of Bravos de Boston and a block from beautiful La Chata beach on the Atlantic! Located on a 1/2 acre compound, Sunset is part of the Bravos Beach Cottages which is made up of three rental units in two buildings, set amid tropical gardens and surrounding a swimming pool and gazebo.

Sunset Cottage is spacious and comfortable, great for two couples or a family. The Great Room is perfect for relaxing after a tough day at the beach. The completely equipped kitchen boasts stylish concrete countertops and plenty of space for whipping up an island feast. The covered dining patio is set like a jewel in its own private garden courtyard and is a wonderful place to eat, enjoy a beverage and watch the colors of the sky change as the sun sets, and also has powder room adjacent that can be accessed without entering the house. Both roomy bedrooms have ensuite baths and private patios looking out to the pool and gardens, as well as outdoor showers for a rinsing off after the beach. One is furnished with a queen bed, the other with a king and a loveseat that opens to a sleeper sofa. Sunset also has a pull out sleeper in the living room, great for an additional child - sleeping a total of 6.

Sunset can be rented individually or along with Moonrise (3022925) and Starlight (3022936) Cottages.

Please Note: We will waive the $50 Credit Card Fee if you pay by check. If you would like to do so, please let us know!

The indoor/outdoor living style at Sunset Cottage is perfect for lounging, cooking, chatting, playing, and entertaining!

The living room area is furnished with comfortable overstuffed furniture - perfect for watching satellite TV or using our WiFi. The kitchen is fully-equipped with stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, blender, and even includes a full-sized washer and dryer. Both bedrooms are spacious and open onto lush poolside patios with hammocks and have private attached bathrooms. One bedroom has a queen bed, and the other has a King bed, which can also be made up as two singles, and a pull-out loveseat if extra space is needed. The living room has a pull-out single, bringing the total we can sleep to 6. The flexibility of Sunset makes it ideal for couples as well as families and friends.

The pool area for Sunset is shared between the three Cottages and is the focal point of the tropical gardens with poolside gazebo for shelter from the sun. There are ample deck areas, seating and lounges to comfortably accommodate many people. The pool is treated by a salt system converter that creates an environment with minimal chlorine, protecting your skin, hair and swimsuit.

The gardens are a delight at Bravos Beach Cottages where you are surrounded by mature producing coconut palms, bananas, plantains, papaya and guava. There are also Fiji fan palms, Coco Plumosa palms, Christmas palms, Foxtail palms, prehistoric cycads, blooming tropical heliconias, fragrant Lady of the Night, bougainvillea, tropical crotons and ixora, pink oleander, giant Bird of Paradise, beach naupaka, hibiscus, dracaenas, frothy ferns, many varieties of philodendron and an array of colorful bromeliads. This is a garden that will draw you in to discover the wonders.

In addition, you can customize your stay at Bravos Beach Cottages by adding Moonrise Cottage (3022925) and/or Starlight Cottage (3022926) - just contact us if you have a larger group.

About Cheryl Donakowski

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 purchased this house in 2011

Why Cheryl Donakowski chose Bravos de Boston

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. 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!

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!
