Why Murray Skinner chose Bravos de Boston
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.

Nice property that we would definitely visit again!
Well designed and nicely furnished property walking distance to the beach! Our group of five women enjoyed our week at this property. Quiet neighborhood. Miles, our property manager, was available 24/7 and a delight to work with. We loved the pool area! As a frequent visitor to Vieques, I wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again and look forward to my next trip!
Thanks for staying with us. Sorry for the inconvenience the power outage in our barrio may have caused you.

Awesome Stay & Vacation at the Bravos Bungalows
We stayed for 10 days at the Bravos Bungalows in Vieques in December 2018. By far, one of the finest vacation experiences I have had. The hospitality/service provided by the owner (Murray) was excellent. The Bungalows are fully equipped and exceptionally clean throughout. Daily, we enjoyed swimming & relaxing poolside. The pool's waterfall is an added touch to the tranquility and great ambience of the property. Being surrounded by lush tropical plants, the property provided us the setting of privacy and enjoyment.We enjoyed our vacation there so much, I have gone ahead and booked the property (both units) to return there for a second vacation in May 2019.
Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you have a great stay in May.
We were a party of Five
Great Vacation spot! This rental has everything you need to relax and enjoy the tropical weather. We had a suv rental to get around the island and to many of the beaches. The island has a variety of places for dining and entertainment . We were never disappointed with any of our choices. Good memories were made !
Wade, thanks for the kind review. Love repeat stays at the Bungalows. I think this was number 4 for you.
Beautifully kept clean safe comfortable
When you arrive on the island you immediately notice how genuinely friendly the locals are and that they were pleased that we chose to vacation in Vieques. Everything was arranged by the owners to have us met and picked up at the local airport by a wonderful gentleman named Miles who manages the property with his wife on behalf of the owners. A quick tour of centre town to familiarize ourselves with the area for shopping, banking, eateries and of course a few spots to have a cocktail and watch the beautiful sunsets.
Upon arrival of the Bravos Bungalows we entered through a secure gate and were absolutely delighted with the property, the gorgeous lush gardens, banana trees, coconut palms and mangos and salt waterfall pool!!. The bungalows are attached but offset so it makes for a cozy and private setting. The home is beautiful and very well kept, clean and well appointed with all the essential amenities and one thing we noticed right away was there were so many bathrooms which is always a good thing. We immediately felt safe and secure as the property is also walled and fenced with a home security system.
The multitude of beaches were some of the best we have ever experienced. The water was clear and made for great snorkeling, the weather was a perfect 88 every day and the evenings were full of life everywhere we chose to go. There are some really great restaurants /bars scattered over the island that offer the local cuisine and if you prefer to cook or grill at the bungalows like we did a few times, fresh seafood can be purchased at the local wharf. There are so many things to do and see on this little hidden gem and of course there were the wild horses everywhere, just amazing and such a beautiful sight to see.
We had one of the best and relaxing vacations we could of hoped for and we will definitely be going back to Vieques and the Bungalows, our little slice of heaven.
Clyde thank you for the detailed review. You captured the true feel of Vieques. We’d have you back anytime as a repeat client. And you are right. People here appreciate visitors.
This is a fabulous place, I would go back anytime
We had a great time in Vieques, the property was very nice, rooms are spacious and comfortable. The property is very private and the pool awesome. The islands is also incredible, peoples are very nice, the food and restaurants are excellent. This location is great for families, the beaches are white sand, blue water and mostly not crowded. the weather was sunny all day with half of an hour rain. I would strongly recommend this property.
Thanks for the kind words Andre. Hope to have you back some time. Gracias...
Great home for big family and worked well with parent in wheelchair.
We we're a family of 9 and one parent in a wheelchair. The house was very clean and spacious. Highly recommend For a large family.
I have family on the island so I was able to mail a handicapped bath chair which fit perfect in the bathroom. There is not a lot of option on the island for someone handicap but we made it work and she had an awesome time. Miles was exstermly helpful with all our request. The Medalla in the fridge was a nice welcome after a long day of traveling. Overall very nice house!
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, but it is safe to say that it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. With that in mind we thought it wise to compile a list of reasons that might help distinguish if this is really a place certain people would like to visit.
Our sense is most people will love the place and likely return several times. But I also do know that there is a percentage of the population that will arrive in Vieques for whom their departure flight will not come soon enough. These are likely the same type of people who go to Italy and complain that the pasta is not cooked enough – “its El Dente”!
So let’s get started. You probably will not enjoy Vieques if you;
1) Need a weekly fix of North American style fast food.
2) Usually travel with your golf clubs while on vacation.
3) Are interested in eating out every night and don’t enjoy at least some part of your vacation to be self catering.
4) Are not content relaxing on a quiet unspoiled beach with a good book.
5) Immediately ask what the casinos and night clubs are like.
6) Expect all of the shopping and amenities to be just like what you have at home.
7) Do not expect to rent a vehicle.
8) Are not expecting to share the island with the odd mosquito and wild horse.
9) Will not find the peeping Coqui frogs and crowing roosters part of the islands appeal.
10) Do not find the joy in the little things in life.
Come and stay here and enjoy this magical island and make the Bravos Bungalows your home away from home while exploring this wonderful island.
