Bravos de Boston villa description
The Reefhouse is available Feb 17 - April 9, 2013 due to recent cancellation (on 12/31/12) due to illness of longterm renters. The Reefhouse is the perfect peaceful Caribbean island getaway. Overlooking the ocean, the Reefhouse has incredible panoramic views and is surrounded by tropical flowering gardens. Enjoy sitting on the patio with the sound of the surf and the rustling palm trees, while watching the local fisherman and sailboats. There is plenty of seating for al fresco dining. And in the evening you can enjoy the spectacular sunsets in perfect tropical weather, any month of the year.
The Reefhouse is decorated in casual Caribbean style. The kitchen is fully equipped. Good beds with high thread count 100% cotton linens. The living room has a TV/DVD, internet, lots of games and a well stocked library. With hairdryer, beach towels, beach chairs and toys, sun hats, coolers and beach bags, all you need to bring is yourself and your friends and family!
The ocean is just below the house across a small shore road. An excellent swimming and snorkeling beach is just a few minutes walk away. Vieques has, according to Forbes Magazine, 'some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean'.
In Vieques there are no traffic lights and no casinos, but there are friendly people and an abundance of great restaurants. It is home to one of the best bioluminescent bays in the world.
Vieques is a small US owned island between Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Vieques is affordable and easy to get to by a 20 minute plane ride from San Juan, Puerto Rico or by 1 1/2 hour ferry ride from Fajardo, Puerto Rico. We can help with any travel arrangements if you would like, and we have a property manager who will meet you at the airport or ferry and ensure your stay is problem free.
Ask for our brochure for additional details or check out our web site listed below. Find out about the unique island of Vieques at the Enchanted-Isle or Vieques-Island tourism web sites.

Hope to be back - the perfect rental for us!
Hope to be back - the perfect rental for us!
We knew the location of the home and were certain it would have an awesome view and be a super easy to walk to town. No surprises there. To us, it was the small touches that we noticed the most. Extremely clean (no dust bunnies under the beds), comfortable furniture including the beds, lots of water pressure in the large shower (a family of 4 would fit quite easily), large bath towels, etc. The owners encourage renters to not toss out items like condiments, coffee, and dry staples that you don't use up before you leave. This makes it really nice for folks coming in next, as some of the staples that are needed, are already there. Especially handy, a large collection of different SPF sunscreen. One of the nicest things about renting this home is that the owners truly want the renters to have a wonderful time while staying there. Communication was always prompt and extremely friendly.

the house was gorgeous - very private, close to everything, and amazing views. All the good beaches are on the Carribean (Esperanza) side of the island, the beach close to Reefhouse is just ok. The drive is short, about 10 minutes. We loved the fresh grouper and lobster from Pescaderia in Isabel Segundo. The Internet works! Acquired a new skill of opening coconuts with a machete - you can pick some up on the property.Beaches: Sun, Secret, Red, Blue. Lots of beautiful shells and intricate seaweed.

Manager response: So glad you loved the Reefhouse and Vieques!
Our family just spent 10 glorious days in Vieques. We loved the island, and the Reefhouse was everything that was promised. The home was perfectly located...close to Isabel with a gorgeous view of the water. We never got tired of listening to the waves, and watching the boats go by. The Reefhouse is equipped with all that you would need on your stay. We cooked in most nights and took advantage of the fish market just down the street...bought lobster and grouper as soon as fisherman brought it off the boat. We loved all of the helpful tips left by the owners regarding food, restaurants, fruit market, and beaches. Our favorite beaches were Blue, Sun, Red, and Navio, and we loved our Bio Bay tour through Abe's. We would highly recommend Reefhouse, and we look forward to our next visit!

the house was excellent, comfortable, sound of the waves to sleep by, homey - one could stay for weeks here. There were lots of reference books and good tips from the owners. Most of the time we cooked at home and ate on the deck, but had a great meal at El Quenepo. Biobay was fantastic. We loved Vieques and will be back.

We had a wonderful two weeks at the Reefhouse in July. The house was everything the listing said. The owner had provided a very helpful brochure and answered all our questions. The property manager, Kikito, picked us up and got us settled in. The house is very comfortable, with a fully equipped kitchen, great beds, a library and reference books - we would have loved to stay MUCH longer! When we weren't at the beach, we spent our time on the deck, with the sound of the waves, and the coquis at night. Red and Silver were our favorite beaches ,and we had great snorkeling by Mosquito pier. The house had beach chairs, snorkel equipment, cooler - and mangoes from the tree! We loved to watch the iguanas in the tree over the water. And the horses who ambled by. We walked over to the Mar Azul bar for sundowners and to watch the ferry come in, then dinner at Coconuts - recommended. Vieques is so laid-back and it was all so relaxing. We'll be back and we will stay at the Reefhouse for sure. Thank you!

We stayed at the Reefhouse from 6/11/09 to 6/20/09. The view was awesome. It was very comfortable and we had all the supplies we needed to prepare meals, we just had to add the food.Make sure to check the times when the ferry arrives and departs as the traffic is a little much, but with patience and learning the times you will miss the traffic jams. Blue beach and Red beach were closed during are stay so we went to Gringo Beach and snorkeled everyday from 10am to about 3pm when the locals would come with their families for a swim after a hard days work.We had the pleasure of seeing stingrays, starfish, parrotfish, angelfish, tangs of every color(powder blue, yellow/black stripped, naso tangs, all kinds),bubble coral, cleaner fish, brain coral.... I'm sure you get the picture) If you find your way to Esperanza make sure to have a meal at Bananas, you won't be dissappointed. They have excellent Red snapper and great salads.We will be coming back!!!

Wow! What a wonderful place to live while visiting Vieques. The house had everything we needed from snorkeling gear, a cooler, beach towels, and three comfortable bedrooms. We loved the beaches, bio bay, and everything we discovered on beautiful Vieques. Tom was right there to pick us up and get us settled in. Thanks for a great first time visit, hope it's not our last! If I go back, I saw no better place then the Reefhouse.

Hola! Thanks so much for this fabulous house. We enjoyed everything about Vieques – surf just out the door, snorkeling in Green Beach, kayaking near Esperanza, lush drives on remote roads and all the horses. It was perfect.

We had a very good time on Vieques and at the Reefhouse. The location of your house is fabulous, we enjoyed being able to walk to town (icecreams on the plaza) and to the beach. We enjoyed sitting on the porch, listening to the surf, eating our meals there and taking in the incredible views. The kids had plenty to do exploring the garden, chasing the lizards, swimming and snorkeling. The beach chairs and the bag with beach toys were excellent. The kitchen was well equipped with everything. We cooked almost all our meals at the house, therefore this was very important. We hope to return!

Thank you for the use of your wonderful house. Couldn't have had a nicer time and the Reefhouse is so perfectly set up. Kids loved the lizards and hummingbirds. Went to a different beach every day (Media Luna a real favorite!) and the bio bay too. We are going to try our hardest to come back. Just a great place and really loved and appreciated your house.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
So close to the turquoise water with the constant sound of the waves. Watching the pelicans fly along the curl of the waves, the fishermen out in early morning, the frigate birds soaring, the ferries coming and going. Iguanas sunbathing on a tree above the water.
