Puerto Rico 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.

The Caribbean as it should be

  • 5 of 5

Location and architecture alone make this a stunning property. Inside, this well appointed house exudes the good taste and comfort of a home you could move right into. But of course, it is outside that you will spend most of your time, and what a space that is. Step out of the bedrooms and you are in your own paradise. The space is very private, framed and protected by palm trees that swing in the trade winds, with a spectacular and ever changing view of the ocean, with Puerto Rico and Culebra at a distance. As tempting as it was to go out and discover the island, we ended up spending most of our long weekend on the property by (and in) the pool, taking in the view and the sound of the waves lapping up against the property. You can’t go wrong with this villa, either as a base to enjoy all that Vieques has to offer or to relax and nap your days away.

Best sunset view

  • 5 of 5

This house has a lot to offer! It's very spacious and the bedrooms are all well appointed as well as the bathrooms with modern kohler fixtures. The outdoor space is where it's at! The pool is a perfect temp, much warmer than most pools on the island because it gets sun all day long. The sunset view from the pool area is amazing! Plenty of room for all 10 of us to spread out. This house is also stocked with enough beach chairs for everyone. Ron was excellent to deal with and responded to texts very quickly. It is walkable to Isabel but maybe a 15 minute walk. We usually piled into the jeeps for a 3 minute drive. You cannot go wrong with this one.

I'm torn

  • 5 of 5

I'm torn in writing this review. I have been vacationing in Vieques yearly for over 30 years and have stayed in several different locations including Villa Chavaniac many times when traveling with lots of family and friends. The reason I am torn in writing this review is because I love this house and if I let everyone know how absolutely incredible it is and how fantastic the people that run it are, I will only lower the odds that it will be available on the dates I want to go next time. So please, do not stay here as it will ruin your options for staying anywhere else on the island as it is perfect in location, style, value, comfort, convenience and beauty. If you stay here you won't be able to find anything as good and you will return again and again. Its like drinking fine wine, its not fun going back to mediocre. However if you do decide to vacation here, please reach out to me and make sure I am not thinking of the same dates if you don't mind. David Weiss.

perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Even before arrival at Villa Chavaniac, I was already impressed with how communicative David and Ron were. Getting to the house from the airport (my family flew in but the house is also very conveniently located near the ferry dock) was very easy, and Dennis (the property manager) was readily available all week. The house itself was clean, airy, and comfortable, and the infinity pool with its view of the ocean was just as beautiful as the pictures. We had a very large group- 13 adults and 2 small children- and there was ample room for everyone. Make sure to either rent a car or have the name of a taxi driver to take you to all the hidden beaches, and to visit the small grocery stores (very low on produce but otherwise fine.) Other favorites were the Bio Bay tours that leave from Esperanza, drinks at El Yate and El Blok, and snorkeling at La Chiva beach. All in all, it was one of our favorite vacations we've ever taken. We would love to come back one day and 100% recommend it. Ps- bring bug spray for the mosquitoes!

Could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We JUST got back from 5 nights in this heavenly home. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it is. NOTHING like waking up to the sound of the surf from a luxurious bed (any of them!) grabbing a wonderful cup of Puerto Rican coffee and sipping it on the incredible outdoor spaces of this house..literally on the water. The pictures do not begin to do it justice. Annette nicely filled a quick grocery list I sent ahead of time so we did not have to run out immediately..and Ron was at our beck and call all week.(also with good food recommendations) There were 3 couples and 2 singles with PLENTY of room to be together or NOT. :)

We will be back next year. I love the beaches and horses and doggies in Vieques and the laid back atmosphere. Coupled with this wonderful was PERFECT.

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.
