Sea Patch – Tropical Gardens, Pool, Steps to the Beach

Sea Patch, located on the North Shore of Vieques Island in the beach side neighborhood of Bravos de Boston, sits in the heart of the lovely Vieques Garden District, surrounded by exceptional tropical gardens designed and maintained by the well-known Bravos Boyz.

Sea Patch was recently renovated, and a spectacular Master Suite was added with Bravos Boyz signature polished concrete counters and integrated sinks. The tile throughout the house is a beautiful and natural white coral specially imported from the Dominican Republic.

A gorgeous pool was also constructed and surrounded by the same white coral stone and includes  large spacious terraces and a large covered gazebo. There are two natural ponds that trickle water as well as three separate water features that were created from huge steel pots used to cook down sugar cane into sugar many decades ago. The water features include fish and water hyacinths. The property lives and feels like your own private resort and is a favorite among our returning guests.

Sea Patch is a spacious 3-bedroom, 3½-bath Vieques vacation rental house. Two of the bedrooms have king-size beds and one has a queen-size bed, and each bedroom has its own bathroom en suite. The Master Bedroom opens to the pool and beautiful gardens. The other two bedrooms each have their own balcony with ocean views. The house sits a few steps from lovely La Chata Beach that is a Bravos Boyz favorite for a morning swim, beach combing for sea glass or to watch the surfers catch a wave.

The property is well appointed with high quality linens, a fully-equipped kitchen, and some great artwork. You will find everything you need to comfortably enjoy your time here in paradise.

Bravos Boyz also designed the spectacular tropical gardens with an extensive plant list including; Puerto Rican Royal Palms, Areca palms, Bottle Palms, Fish tale palms, Bismarkia palms, pomegranate trees, key lime, colorful Ixoras and Crotons, Schefleras, Birds of Paradise, bananas, philodendruns, heliconias, gingers, orchids,  fragrant Frangiapani, Ylang Ylang and white spider lilies and an occasional visit from friendly Iguanas.

Casa Belle Vue – Whole House – Vieques Vacation Rental

Casa Belle Vue is a modern vacation rental home on the North Shore of Vieques Island in the beach side neighborhood of Bravos de Boston – construction finished in late 2009.

It has commanding views of the North Shore, the main island of Puerto Rico, and the island of Culebra. The sounds and smells of the ocean are at your doorstep, and you can watch the fishing boats and ferries come and go. The house provides privacy for vacationers by offering separate upper and lower landings.

The Upper Landing has one exquisite master bedroom suite with a large open plan kitchen/great room. Twelve-foot wide French bi-fold doors open onto the 40-foot wide balcony from both the bedroom suite and the great room, “bringing the ocean” into the space. The Lower Landing has another two bedrooms, its own kitchenette, a large bathroom, and an outdoor lounge and eating space on a covered terrace. You can rent the whole house so six can sleep comfortably with lots of privacy and plenty of room to spread out. Alternatively, the Upper and Lower Landings can be rented individually with separate access provided to each.

Casa Belle Vue comes fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay including comfortable beds with high quality linens, soft fluffy bath towels and beach towels. Immediately adjacent to the property are concrete stairs that take you down the 15-foot cliff to the ocean. A great swimming/snorkeling beach (with coral and fish) is a two-minute walk to the east. Casa Belle Vue is located in the great residential neighborhood of Bravos de Boston, walking distance from the restaurants and bars of Isabel Segunda.

Casa Belle Vue is the only Vieques vacation rental house that uses modern ICF building technology – providing insulated walls that keep the house cooler and makes this structure earth friendly.

Los Arcos The Most Coveted Vieques Estate

Los Arcos, completed in 2008, overlooks the Caribbean Sea and Esperanza Bay from one of the most beautiful Vieques vacation rental estates.

The design was inspired by the great castles of Spain, with 18-inch thick concrete walls and huge, thick archways that separate the open-plan interior spaces. Los Arcos is a new home but looks like it could have been sitting on this hill for centuries.

Amenities include perhaps the nicest view on the island of Vieques and one of the best in the Caribbean, complete with the outdoor living spaces. Deep, wide, shaded, travertine-tiled balconies face the ocean with comfortable furniture and natural seating areas exposing views through arched openings and receiving constant breezes from the trade winds. Step off the balcony from the main house or the guest villa and step right into the solar heated infinity pool, with a bench and tables built in, also facing the views. Cushioned lounge chairs dot the balcony offering comfort and serenity to enjoy the vistas.

Throughout the house the walls facing the ocean have folding glass doors which open to bring the outside in. Although the furniture is high-end, it is not fussy or delicate or uninviting. The owners brought in pieces from India, Morocco, China and Mexico to fill the house with color and texture reflecting their interest in world craftwork and a comfortable, casual island lifestyle.

To the old they added the new with every possible convenience and comfort. There’s a huge, fully outfitted “cook’s kitchen”, a large-screen plasma TV with DISH programming and a Blue Ray DVD player, air conditioned bedrooms, wireless Internet, and a whole-house audio system that lets guests select their own music and volume from the digital house library, or bring an iPod and hear it in any, or every room at the same time.

This Vieques Island rental house has three “master/guest suites”, each with a king bed, private bath, indoor and outdoor shower, and folding glass doors that open to the ocean views. Two of the suites are in the separate Guest Wing and the third is within the Main House and all are of a similar quality with similar amenities. There are also wooden hangers for your clothing in all of the closets, and in room safes for any valuables you wish to store. Other spaces include the living room, media room, office, dramatic center-domed-cathedral-ceiling dining room, and pool bar.

The grounds are magnificent with many varieties of palm trees and colorful, tropical flowers galore. There is an orchard at the rear of the property where you are invited to pick fresh bananas, mangoes, star fruit, limones, and anything that might be in season during your visit.

Beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and thermoses are provided if you do decide to leave your private paradise to visit one of the many nearby sandy Vieques beaches. Los Arcos is a house that our guests return to year after year because of the magical design and location. There are many havens within the estate where views of the Caribbean are perfect, the breeze is sublime, and you feel lucky just to be here. This elegant Caribbean Estate on six acres overlooking the southern Caribbean coast is the perfect place to relax with friends and families creating lifelong dreams…

Los Arcos is featured in Cape Air’s Bird’s Eye View.
