Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday townhome in Vieques
Bedrooms 4, Bathrooms 4, Sleeps 8
The Palm Cottages, on the North Shore of Vieques Island in Bravos de Boston neighborhood, comprises a residential compound that was formerly a church, its rectory, and several small out buildings. Located in the heart of the lovely Vieques Garden District, the cottages are surrounded by exceptional and mature tropical gardens designed and maintained by the well-known Bravos Boyz, whose offices are also located in the former sanctuary.
The Vieques vacation rental compound includes two cottages, the Palm Cottage and the Pool Cottage, which share a beautifully landscaped, private pool with a dramatic fountain. The Palm Cottages Entire Compound is one of our favorite rentals and is very popular for larger groups needing four bedrooms with four bathrooms . The tropical oasis and grounds provide your own private sanctuary, and the locally known La Chata beach is just steps down the North Shore Road where Bravos Boyz love to take a morning swim, comb for beach glass or watch the surfers catch a wave.
The Palm Cottage was originally the rectory and having been completely renovated is a sheik beach hideaway. The Bravos Boyz used their signature polished concrete counters with concrete sinks fully integrated in both the kitchen and the bathroom. The Palm Cottage has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms making this an ideal place for four people to call home. The Palm cottage has a private outdoor shower with your own blooming orchid and surrounding tropical jungle. The Bravos Boyz design all of their properties with what they call a folly and the "Folly" of the Palm Cottage is a floor to ceiling screened room with beds and chairs for lounging. The words used most often to describe this room are Hemingway's Hideaway! The Palm Cottage bedrooms are air conditioned if you require it but it sits high to take advantage of the constatn breezes and the sound of the nearby surf will lull you to sleep. There is a living room and dining room all looking out to the tropical pool and fountains.
The Pool Cottage sits directly across the pool from the Palm Cottage and was carved out of the stage of the sanctuary as well as church offices and bathrooms. The Pool Cottage is offered fully air conditioned and with two bedrooms with two bathrooms en suite. The signature polished concrete counters and sinks are again seen here stylishly simple yet elegant. Both cottages offer acid stained concrete floors and our guests love strolling in and out of the cottages from the pool as the floors can take it all. The Pool Cottage has an inside living room as well as an outside living room and outside pool side dining on our signature polished concrete table for six to eight. One of the two bathrooms offers an outside shower.
Both cottages offer high quality thread count bed linens as well as white fluffy towels and bright colorful beach towels. The upholstered furniture is very comfortable as well as offering full package cable because watching a movie is relaxing, high speed wireless internet no further explanation needed and land line phones with free long distance to the United States just because! Additionally, we offer you a washer and dryer and beach chairs and coolers so that you can reasonably stay in a Bravos Boyz house only needing to bring flip flops, a sarong and a bathing suit.
One of the delights of the cottages are the many tropical plantings the first of which are 30 foot Puerto Rican Royal Palms that Thom planted from seed around 2003. Additionally, there are Areca palms, Mac Arthur palms, Adorneidia palms, Figi Fan palms, Travelers palms, Coconut palms, philodendrums, orchids, scented Ylang Ylang and spider lilies, hibiscus, blooming bromeliads, bananas, pink, white, and red ginger, heliconias, gardenias, bright crotons, various types of ferns, a water garden with blooming lotus flowers, herbs and many other surprises including night sounds and visiting Iguanas.
At the Palm Cottages the Boyz have thought of everything to make this a vacation of a lifetime for you and if they forgot something they are always there to help. Our goal has been to create a brand with you in mind and to maintain that brand year after year.

Guestbook comments from the manager
What a special place. Eight of us rented the entire compound to celebrate my birthday, which consists of the 2 cottages, a screened room with a lounging beds and fans, porches and the pool. Each morning started with coffee on the Pool Cottage porch and breakfast at the large outdoor table. The outdoor showers where a hit for all who took advantage. The staff was amazing, they provided recommendations on everything, and let me just say that we eat at some of the best restaurants I've ever encountered on a Caribbean island. I was a wonderful vacation and birthday!
