About the property

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.

Amazing Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to start to explain this beautiful gem. The house is located in the perfect location in Vieques. It was a party of 10 of us and we never felt like we were on top of each other. Dennis and David were wonderful doing the whole process. The house is luxurious and offers everything you need to make the home a gem. We never wanted to leave the house. The beaches are amazing, the supermarket and restaurants are within walking distances. I do recommend you take a flight into Vieques versus taking the ferry and renting a jeep. I can't wait to return back to this gem. I celebrated my 40th birthday here and it was amazing. I am a travel agent and have traveled all over the world but this place is amazing. You will not be disappointed until it's time to leave!! Don't second guess this property!!!!

Just the 10 of us!

  • 5 of 5

We had the great fortune to stay in this villa during our time in Vieques. If you find yourself traveling to this charming island, do yourself a favor and stay here! The view is simply breathtaking. Pictures cannot do this villa justice. You have to experience for yourself the sun setting while hanging out in the pool to understand what I mean. Dennis, the property manager, always was available to answer any questions we had. The pool was our go-to place to hang out, but the entire home was incredible. Thank you for making our first visit to Vieques one to remember!!! The beaches are beautiful here. Definitely try to make it to Green Beach if you can, and Playa Playuela has a cool cave you can swim in. Snorkeling was good almost anywhere we went. Media Luna beach has the softest sand I have ever felt on my feet, almost like powdered sugar. Also, do yourself a favor and travel by plane to and from the island. Our ferry was over three hours late, and we missed our zip line tour in the rainforest. But, whatever you do, go to the Bio Bay!!! It is simply indescribable!!! Make sure to get a rental jeep. You will need it to explore.

Perfect Location in Vieques

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week in Vieques and Villa Chavaniac with 4 families and it could not have been more perfect. The house was appointed beautifully so that everyne had space to spread out. The bathrooms in the lower unit were spacious and and luxurious and the beds were some of the most comfortable I have ever slept in! The location could not have been better as we walked into Isabel II every morning for coffee and the view from the pool deck could not be beat. The ocean lapping at our door and beautiful sunsets each night! Other amentiites including cleaning, lots of fluffy beach towels, beach chairs and beach toys and coolers for our beach lunches were provided. This property is a gem and I recommend it highly for your visit to Vieques!

Stunning Seclusion

  • 4 of 5

We found this place and decided based on the location. The neighborhood is a little rough looking in areas but that seems common all over Vieques. We had a party of 6 and rented the Espace (lower) part of the villa. We loved the layout and found the bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and very well furnished. The kitchen was a little small but was very, very well supplied with tools you might not find in normal rentals. The bedding was all high quality and beds were very comfortable. AC was an individual unit in each bedroom and one large one in the kitchen. The main sitting room was a little small but had nice seating for about 4. The outdoor living areas were amazing with comfortable furniture and great architectural elements. Along with two outdoor showers and the view, I'm not sure if the outdoor areas could be any better. The beautiful landscaping and the noise of the surf makes this place create special memories.

Pinch me, I must be dreaming!

  • 5 of 5

There were 7 of us during our stay, and I know I can speak for all of us when I say that this place is an absolute gem in one of the most beautiful places in the Caribbean. It is perfect for couples, friends and/or families.This home and backdrop were made for each other. When you arrive, you will quickly learn that you have everything you need in order to enjoy your stay to the fullest. From beach towels and beach gear, to a macchinetta to brew yourself a cup of fine Puerto Rican coffee. If you happen to have any questions and/or concerns, both Dennis and David are readily available to set your mind at ease. They are friendly, professional and ensure you have the best experience possible. The beds feel like you are sleeping on clouds, although the mesmerizing sky above will keep you awake all night as you find yourself star-gazing for hours. When you are awake, but too tired from wandering the island, you can relax by the infinite salt water pool as the waves come crashing in and watch the most stunning sunsets. If you happen to be ‘rained in’, you can enjoy the beach-chic interior and play board games. This vacation home will find a special place in your heart that you will definitely want to come back to. Although you feel like you are dreaming when arrive, it is very much real :-) I cannot wait to come back! Thank you!!!

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.
