Moonrise Cottage is located in the lovely beach-side neighborhood of Bravos de Boston and is a block from beautiful La Chata beach on the Atlantic! Located on a 1/2 acre lot, Moonrise is part of the Bravos Beach Cottage compound of three rental units in two buildings, surrounding a swimming pool and gazebo, and set amid tropical gardens.
Moonrise Cottage is of newer construction and was designed by well-known architect Stanley Hutchinson. The main living space - Great Room, kitchen, balcony, and one bedroom and bath - are on the second floor, with a second bedroom with ensuite bath and private patio on the first floor. Two loveseats in... the living room convert to single beds, especially good for children and bringing the total of guests we can accommodate to 6.
Moonrise is especially nice for couples traveling together, with the bedroom suites very private from each other.
The design and furnishings in Moonrise are contemporary and ideal for Caribbean living. The main living area on the second floor has an open floor plan great room including kitchen, dining area and living room with vaulted ceilings - very comfortable and convenient. Decorated in blues and greens, it's designed for relaxing.
The fully-equipped kitchen with contemporary concrete counters has a huge island with bar - perfect for assistant cooks, as well as spectators! Or if you'd prefer, you can grill poolside by the gazebo on our gas grill.
The living area has comfortable seating and satellite TV, we also have WiFi so you can stay connected! The two comfy loveseats open to single beds, great for kids. There is a treetop-level balcony off the great room with exquisite garden and poolside views - a perfect place to watch the full moon rise if your timing is right!
One bedroom with contemporary teak furniture and queen size bed is just off the great room with its own bathroom en suite. A washer and dryer are also located on this level so pack light - you can do your laundry while you're here!
The second bedroom is a very private haven on the the first floor. It has a King size bed and its own bathroom en suite, along with a private patio opening to the pool area and gardens.
Moonrise is great for two couples traveling together, also great for a family traveling with grandma and grandpa - mom, dad and the kids can sleep upstairs, with the kids on the sleeper sofas, while grandma and grandpa have their own space on the first floor.
The pool area is the outdoor focal point and is shared between the three units. Set amid tropical gardens, you can work on your tan poolside or relax in the gazebo for shelter from the sun. There are ample deck areas to comfortably accommodate many people. The pool is treated by a salt system converter that creates an environment with minimal chlorine - good for your skin, hair and swimsuit.

The first impression of the Bravos De Boston neighborhood can seem chaotic, but that is part of the charm of Vieques. The Bravos Boyz do a great job of easing first timers into this Vieques experience starting with meeting you at the airport, assisting with getting you to the rental car facility and to the property. This well organized introduction makes for an easy transition into the rest & relaxation phase of the trip.
The property is clean and has many amenities for around the property, the pool, the grill, and the beach.

From the moment we were met at the airport and throughout our stay we were with comfortable friends.
The house was large and small enough to fit quite right
Food and drink was on hand when we arrived and arrangements to have excellent meals delivered was easy.
I imagine this is what Key West was like when Hemmingway lived there, somewhere important but at a better pace.
Wonderful place to stay on Vieques!

We had a fabulous vacation on Vieques. We were very pleased with our choice of Bravos Beach Cottages - Moonrise. The house is very comfortable and clean. It works quite well for two couples because of the layout of the cottage. The Bravos Boyz staff was very responsive the few times we called to ask questions or request an item for the house. The TV gets lots of channels but it is very small (the only disappointment because the Super Bowl was on). The showers were difficult to manage...so be prepared to have a Hot/cold shower. Otherwise the place was really great! The pool and the grill were both great! Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!

I recently stayed at the Bravos Beach Cottages - Moonrise with 5 of my friends. It was a well sized home which fit all of us comfortably. We had the house to ourselves and saw little of those staying at the second home on the compound. Laura picked us up at the airport. She was great and very flexible with the pickup time since we missed our first charter flight and got on a different one an hour later. She even scheduled with our car rental guy to be there as well so that all of us could have a ride to the car rental office. The house was nice and we had our own gate entrance and place to park so we felt pretty secluded. The house was close to Isabel II so we could get groceries fairly easily. To get to the beaches and some of the restaurants we wanted to eat at we had to drive a little but never more than 20-30 minutes. There was a lot for us to see during our stay there so we didn't spend much time at all during the day at the house or at the pool.
My two friends who slept in the living room on the pull-out beds said they were pretty hot at night and had a hard time sleeping despite having the fans on. Some of the sheets could have been cleaner. There were some unpleasant stains on some of them. Also, not all of the keys we were given worked. We basically had one set that worked and we just kept that one with us. Not sure if it was user-error though, haha.
We were very pleased with our experience and glad we went and Bravos Boyz were great. Vieques was amazing!!
Beautiful bucolic retreat on Vieques

A wonderfully appointed, comfortable cottage! Everything we needed was provided. The house was clean, secure (very important!), and easily accessible for our family. Open plan kitchen/TV/Dining room a plus for family activities and relaxation. Very comfortable beds/sheets/pillows. Like we were "home". Read more

Comfortable, relaxing getaway
Left on 03/13/2013 for a stay in March 2013 | Vieques fan
We rented Moonrise Cottage in Vieques recently (Mar 2013) and had a pleasant stay. The casita was very clean, inside and out, with well manicured grounds and lovely saltwater pool. Beds were comfy, bathrooms adequate, and living space, small, but enough for us. Once you open doors to 2nd floor balcony, felt the space was expanded! Vieques is not full of amenities in and of itself, but Moonrise afforded us a good, safe location, mostly what we needed was provided, and any issues that arose were taken care of immediately by the mgmt company (conveniently located around the block). A car is absolutely necessary to explore the island adequately, as there is a feeling of the undiscovered there -- hidden beaches etc., along with the primitive island feel with roosters crowing, dogs barking, and the wild horses padding along the streets at night. It's a place for those that prefer a bit of adventure and don't get flustered if the electricity goes out for a few hours in the neighborhood (which did happen to us.. but candles were provided!) We also met wonderful folks staying in the other cottages on the property.. Read more

A beautiful house in a peaceful island
Left on 01/15/2013 for a stay in December 2012 | Guido J
We were a party of 4 and we stayed in the house for 5 days, during our New Year's eve holidays.
The home was very confortable, clean and well furnished. All the important services were included and perfectly working (A/C, internet, TV, ... ).
Vieques island is a very peaceful place, with fantastic beaches and the weather was almost perfect.
The only thing that should be better was the view from the house: even if the sea isn't far from the house, was impossible to see it.
