Here are what our guests have said;

*Our Christmas week at the Bravos Bungalows-The Compound was everything we hoped for and more. The property was perfect for our large group and had everything we needed. Thanks again. Can’t wait to return

* Great week for a group of 9 – 83 years to 8 months old. Stayed at the Bravos Bungalows compound for over two weeks and loved it. Tons of space for solitude as well as public areas for the whole gang. Clean and well equipped. We were pleased with this place and and all the well thought out amenities, Hdtv, A/C, pool, security, furnishings, gardens, location. We will definitely be back.

*My husband and I can’t say enough about this rental. From the moment we landed in Vieques we knew we had found a true Carribean gem. Then, we opened the gates of Bravos Bungalows and we knew we had chosen the right place to stay. Conveniently located we felt at ease and they promptly answered all out questions. The house was beautifully decorated, very clean, well equipped and felt just like home. The kitchen was so well equipped we enjoyed dining in most nights so we could enjoy the beautiful outdoor space and swim under the stars. The air conditioner units in the bedrooms are terrific and cooled them in minutes while you brush your teeth! Having la Chata beach a couple doors down made for memorable morning walks with our coffee and the best sunset view with the main island in the distance. The rental was so comfortable and relaxing that we even spent 3 days there by the pool. Just what the doctor ordered! We will be going back to Vieques again and will stay here again!

*Island vibe” as they say in america met all expectations and more.

The Bravos Bungalows are within 15 minutes of Vieques' famous beaches and its world famous Bio Bay is a must see. There is a pleasent walk along North Shore Road to Vieques principal town of Isabel Segunda where one can find restaurants, bars, pharmacies and it's quaint town plaza.

Since the Bungalows became available for rent we have had many inquiries from colleagues and friends about Vieques. It obviously struck a chord with us. With that in mind we thought it wise to compile a list of reasons that might help you decide to visit.

Our sense is most people will love Vieques for its rustic charm and likely return several times. If you like fast food joints, traffic lights and hustle and bustle, Vieques will disappoint.

So let’s get started. You will enjoy all Vieques has to offer if you;

Appreciate a relaxed dress code at the local restaurants.

Enjoy snorkeling, swimming and beautiful virtually deserted beaches

Are planning to enjoy your own cuisine poolside

Expect an eclectic array of shopping and amenities unlike what you have at home

Plan to rent a vehicle to explore the island

Enjoy and appreciate wildlife; wild horses, peeping Coqui frogs, crowing roosters and the odd mosquito

Enjoy the simple pleasures in life; sound of the surf, starlit skies, warm breezes, quiet beaches, a comfy hammock to name a few...

Come and stay here and enjoy this magical island and make the Bravos Bungalows your home away from home while exploring this wonderful island.

Great house!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! The property has everything you may need and it is very close to town (supermarket, coffee shop, restaurants, ferry dock). Our friends were staying in the next door bungalow so it was great to have our separate spaces while sharing the pool area. Would definitely stay here again!!

Fabulous Time in Vieques

  • 5 of 5

The Bravos Bungalow was even better than described. Miles was easily available to help us get to the property. He had great info and advice since it was our first time to the island. It is greatly recommended to rent a jeep. The entire island can be explored easily once you get an understanding of the main roads. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked most days. Beach items are available at the bungalow that were greatly appreciated. The only thing to be aware of is that if you are renting the Bungalow- only the two bedrooms have air conditioning. It is too hot in June to have anyone sleep on the couch or in the screened porch. If your group is small and you only rent one side of the property your space at the pool is shared. We were lucky to have some solo time. When the other guests arrived mid week they were friendly and respectful. Vieques is magical. Wild horses and dogs really own the island:) From the bungalow we were lucky enough to see an iguana in a tree on the property. The pool is refreshing. Laundry facilities were great. We are really looking forward to a return stay. Thank You for this amazing, safe, well maintained beautiful paradise.

Ladies winter retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, clean, well equipped rental unit with all the amenities of home. The pool and tropical gardens are a wonderful setting for a very tranquil, relaxing holiday. Since we had escaped the Canadian weather, we took advantage of the outdoor dining area everyday, scooting into town to pick up supplies. One day we picked up fresh lobster from the fish market.

La Chata beach is a short walk down the road, great for finding sea glass in the early morning. Not a swimming beach as the surf is very rough.

Highly recommend renting a car to get around. The beautiful beaches, Sun bay, Blue and Secret beach are on the other side of the island. Pack a picnic lunch and set out for the day. Coolers are supplied

key highlights: secret beach, great for snorkeling, Blue beach, Bio Bay excursion, Sunset at Al's Bar , lunch on the patio in L'esperanza overlooking the bay, vegetable trailer LOL, watch the prices the watermelon is very expensive

Don't forget to pack bug spray, lots of mosquitos. We brought citronella candles.

Than you Laurel and Murray, you have a wonderful vacation home!

Most beautiful vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Photography is my passion the 1500 pictures I took say what a beautiful island Vieques is. Where else would you find horses roaming freely in the streets. No one begging to make you feel guilty. Spectacular homes and then some not so much. The views and sunsets were something to look forward too especially with a drink in hand at Al's bar. Or maybe free sunset punch at the "W" would interest you. That is only the tip of what makes the island so interesting. You will have your choice of beaches. One 5 mins from home, we would check out on our morning walk. This is also one of the beaches the horse back riders would take on their tour. Best of all this island has no crowding. We saw maybe 8-10 groups of people many times less at the beach. My favorite is Secret Beach. Most importantly the spacious bungalow was clean to perfection on our arrival. The lush gardens around the house are a photographers delight and set the ambiance of the vacation. The pool was refreshing so therefore used on a daily bases. The bungalows are well thought out. The decor was practical and comfortable. Plenty of bed rooms, bathrooms and showers. The kitchen functioned like home with all you would need. The outside lounging areas are where we ate our meals. No one wanted to be inside when the weather is so great outside. The Bio Bay is a must. Drop by the fish market and pick up your lobster for supper. You can choose to sit back, relax, take a drive or check out the shopping. The atmosphere is all about slowing down and smelling the flowers......If you decided to check out this beautiful island you would not be sorry if you book one of these bungalows. The pool bungalow was great. Bon Voyage!

Great property for 1or 2 Couples

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed 9 days at the Pool Bungalo in early November and had a wonderful time. The property was clean and well maintained and accurately reflected the listing. We were fortunate that the adjacent bungalow was not occupied and we had the entire property to ourselves. The saltwater pool was spectacular and the grounds were a tropical garden. The beach that was within walking distance was very nice but there were truly amazing beaches within a 20 minute drive. We especially liked taking the beach chairs to Sun Bay which was more than a mile and a half long and virtually deserted. There was good snorkeling and plenty of palm trees to provide shade. We enjoyed exploring the island's 2 small towns and finding many excellent restaurants.

We particularly liked Next Course, Coqui Fire and Conuco. For less extravagant dining, we enjoyed barbeque at Bellybuttons and pizza at Taverna. Don't miss the happy hour drink specials at the "W" ...$4-5 wine and champagne and a free cocktail at sunset! The property manager, MIles, met us at the car rental and was very helpful. We plan to return to Vieques soon.

Everything that was expected and some more!

  • 5 of 5

An overall great experience. Beautiful property centrally located but away from everything. Well equipped for enjoying a worry free vacation. Beach nearby for morning walks. Nice pool which is very safe for babies and toddlers as it is above the ground. Modern appliances and fully equipped kitchen. Very clean, comfortable and safe (safe box and alarm in property). Very helpful property manager. Two charcoal grills available. We cooked and grilled everyday.

Our family simply had a great experience and will certainly be renting this place again next time we visit Vieques. Highly recommended.
