Our family stayed at BP for 5 wonderful nights in March 2014. There were 6 adults and 1 little one. The layout of the house is cute with the dining area on the back porch (where we spent the majority of our down time). The house had all the linens provided and were in like new condition. All the beach chairs and towels were perfect! The house had all the paper products and cleaning products that you needed. It was a short walk (3 minutes)to the beach where we found shells. Bravos Boys picked us up at the ferry and dropped us at the house and took one of us to pick up our rental car. He also provided great information on where to buy grocery items. We had breakfast at the house every morning and packed PB and jelly sandwiches to take to the beach for lunch. The store is priced very reasonable.
We had dinner out and it was a little costly and next time we will investigate finding a fish market to grill dinner on the back porch.
Recommended places to eat at are Bananas & Duffeys come in from the beach to enjoy relaxed dinner/Trade Winds, you may need reservations all in Esperanza and Next Course, reservations suggested where the food was truly worth the money.
The beaches are incredible, you need a car to get around and to all the beaches. Snorkeling is great, water is awesome, our grandson walked right in.
We are all looking forward to and are planning our next vacation in Vieques.

I'm not kidding when I say that this house has everything you could possibly want while on vacation! Great location, very near a quiet pretty atlantic-facing beach, and every possible amenity including: beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, sunblock, books, a phone and aC/fans when you want it. I stayed with my husband and two other friends. Everyone could not believe how perfect our accommodations were. Very homey and not at all over-the-top. Being right across the street from the Bravos Boyz office made it easy to pop in with questions. (and they never popped in on us!) Laura was super helpful with arranging a rental car and providing directions and suggestions for the island. The home backs up to what looks like jungle, lots of visits from chickens/roosters, horses and even a big iguana! Plenty of privacy and just a short drive from town. We really felt like we lived on the island, not visitors in a bustling resort. You will definitely want to rent a car as town is not a very close walk. Plus you'll want to visit all of the other beautiful beaches. We will definitely be returning to Vieques and definitely be staying with Bravos Boyz.

Lovely home with a beautiful patio for enjoying the warm tropica

The Banana Patch was truly a home away from home. It had all of the supplies you could possibly need to cook, go to the beach or simply enjoy a cold beverage on the patio. It is a very short walk to the closest beach where we were usually the only ones there. We were greeted at the airport by David and he took us to a grocery store so we could stock up on some essentials for the the first couple of days until we had our rental car. We were walked through the home and everything we needed to know was pointed out with a nice booklet with information on the basics was left behind for our reference. The service was great and the property was well looked after and very clean. 5 stars!!!

Banana Patch was a beautiful home, aesthetically pleasing and tranquil. The staff at Bravo Boyz did there best to accommodate us and make up for some minor hiccups with the property. Although the property is advertised as walking distance to town, it is a very long walk so a rental car is necessary. All in all it was a pleasurable experience.
Great trip to Vieques!

Our stay at Banana Patch was everything we had hoped for...the home was perfectly equipped and stocked with a full kitchen, great linens and dishes and plenty of beach stuff. For us, staying on the north side of the island was wonderful...easy enough to get to the beaches on the south side, but quiet enough that we felt relaxed at the end of the day. The Bravos Boyz made our trip! They picked us up at the airport, and even took the time to stop at the market and help us get a car...which is a must on the island. We cannot thank them enough for going the extra step to make our vacation so fabulous. We will definitely come back to Vieques and probably to Banana Patch!

Banana Patch is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing get away. Logistically, it is walking distance from downtown and a beach, and a short drive to the National Parks with countless white sand beaches. With three bedrooms, it has plenty of room for a large family or multiple families. My son and I went with a friend and his daughter. We had plenty of room. There is a washer/dryer, so we were able to travel with only carry on luggage. The kitchen has everything we needed to make meals. While air conditioning is available, the cross ventilation is perfect, so we did not find it necessary.
I fully intend on going back some day to relax. I absolutely loved my stay there!! Read more
Laura we are thrilled that you "absolutely loved your stay" and found Banana Patch to be the "perfect place to enjoy a relaxing get away'! Our goal at Bravos Boyz is to create the perfect vacation rental so that your stay is unforgetable and you told us so. We will be here when you come back. Cheers!

Our group of 5 stayed at the Banana Patch during the first week of February and had a great time. The house was conveniently located on the island, not too far from anything we wanted to see or do. The pick up at the airport and transportation to our rental car and then the house was great. The folks that picked us up provided great information about the area to those who hadn't been to Vieques before. The amenities in the house were top-notch as well. After the first night everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were and we all noticed the high thread count bath and beach towels. There was a cooler, beach umbrella, two chairs, and plenty of toys to make beach going even more enjoyable. Our group is already excited to return to the Banana Patch or any other property managed by Bravos Boyz again next year! Read more
Thanks for taking the time to tell us how we are doing!
Great renovation, very clean, great amenities

Location makes the breeze less prevalent than other places. Mosquitoes were an issue so make sure to bring repellent. However, the rental price reflects this shortcoming.
The house had snorkeling gear which was a nice gesture. Everything worked and the decoration was nice. Overall, a great rental.

Cute, comfortable beach cottage

My husband and I just spent a glorious week at Banana Patch. We have been to Vieques a couple of times before and stayed at Bravos Boyz properties, so we had high expectations -- even though Banana Patch is one of their least expensive rentals. It did not disappoint! Alberto and Betty picked us up at the airport, took us to the car rental place, and made sure we were well-oriented and felt welcome.
The location is perfect, steps to La Chata Beach (which we have come to regard as "morning coffee and evening wine beach" - and Banana Patch supplies plastic reusable coffee cups and wine glasses for just that purpose). Isabel is an easy walk. It was convenient to be across the street from the Bravos Boyz office and we popped in for directions and recommendations a couple of times. They do know everything about the island!
The decor is unpretentious beach cottage casual, with some interesting Caribbean art and craft pieces. The outdoor living and dining area is equipped with three fans and romantic lighting options, and we spent a lot of time enjoying the jungle views and sounds. We did not cook anything but simple meals, but the kitchen is well-equipped for those inclined to do something more elaborate.
There are plenty of books and Dvds for rainy days, two tvs, and a docking station for music. The beach toys are terrific, with snorkeling gear, an umbrella, beach chairs, a cooler, and even a couple of headlamps for nighttime exploring. We appreciated the comfort of the beds, which featured high-end linens and memory foam toppers and pillows...and fluffy, fluffy bath and beach towels.
As Vieques fans, we can say that Banana Patch is a real value. It had everything we were looking for at a great price. Banana Patch was a great romantic destination, but we think it would be equally appropriate for families and groups of friends.

An awesome house on an awesome island!
Left on 11/20/2012 for a stay in November 2012 | Daddy - Daughter
My daughter and I had our greatest daddy-daughter trip ever!
The Bravos Boyz picked us up and the Vieques airport and drove us to the rental car agency then to the Banana Patch. They gave us a quick tour of the Banana Patch and showed us where essential establishments were on a map (groceries, etc.). They also recommended sites and restaurants.
The Banana Patch (BP as my daughter called it) is located nicely between La Chata beach and Isabel; close enough to walk to the ocean or walk into town (you may want to drive if you are getting a lot of groceries).
The kitchen was properly equipped and did not limit my culinary options. There is a grill in the outdoor lounge/dining area so I grilled out three times (btw, the fish market is within walking distance...mmm, grilled sea bass).
All the rooms and the outdoor area had ceiling fans and we often had the front and back doors open for ample ventilation...we never used the aC even though it reached the 90s a couple of days.
The convenience of the laundry facilities allowed us to pack only our backpacks...saved us money on the check bags fee and the hassle of luggage mania...yeah.
The grounds were beautiful. It was nice to sit on the back deck with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and watch the palms swaying and all the awesome animals (chickens, horses, lizards, land crabs, etc.). We loved the way it made us feel...very much a part of the island!
There is ample parking for two vehicles...we only had one. However, you could easily park on the street if you had more than two.
Vieques is a fantastic vacation spot. We enjoyed great restaurants, pristine beaches, snorkeling, hiking, and horseback riding. But most importantly, we enjoyed the small town feel of the island...no chains, no golf courses, etc. It was just amazing.
