Garden House is a brand new, high-end Bravos Boyz exclusive Vieques vacation rental, located in the beach side neighborhood of Bravos de Boston. This amazing house is new to the Vieques rental market and with the Bravos Boyz award winning marketing and management team, the Garden House is destined to become your home away from home. A finely crafted, luxurious home that will truly enhance your vacationing experience.
The design of the Garden House is Simplicity itself. Here you will see the same elements repeated over and over, offering a meditational atmosphere for relaxation, your everyday stress will disappear once you walk through the front door. The owner's whimsical decor is fun, world beat meets industrial and has everything a Vieques beach house requires for the perfect vacation.
Garden House features four bedrooms and three bathrooms with two en suites, each with their own private outdoor shower. There is also a large, shared bath with rain shower. The house sleeps eight people luxuriously with brand new, superior queen beds with new 100% cotton linens and three of the four bedrooms open directly to the pool terrace and tropical gardens. There is additional sleeping space for two in the lounge area. The lounge accommodation offers a comfortable day bed with pull out trundle. This space is perfect for two children or two adults in your group. With sleeping for 10, it is the perfect place for a large gathering.
There is a large indoor living room and dining room with ample seating for a large group. The great room has all of the amenities you will need, HD 46 inch TV, satellite programing, internet, books and games. You might start hoping for rain! The large, fully stocked gourmet will accomodate everyone in your party. The large asymmetrical island will make meal time prep a breeze and the cook will never feel isolated as the beautiful kitchen flows directly into the pool nad gardens beyond. The large, bright, fully equipped gourmet kitchen is perfect for entertaining for weddings, family reunions, or any other life celebration.
One purposeful feature of the house is the owners desire to be "green conscious" with the design and they therefore chose concrete as a primary architectural finish in the house. The floors are honed concrete, the counter tops are all polished concrete and the bathroom sinks as well as kitchen sink are all continuous and fully integrated with the counter tops and all sophisticated polished concrete.
The Vieques neighborhood of Bravos de Boston is a long established favorite due in no small part to La Chata beach. This beautiful neighborhood beach is a two-minute walk from the Garden House. La Chata is a true secret beach, as only the barrio residents know it. It has yet to appear on any tourist brochure. La Chata is a fantastic snorkeling and boogie boarding beach as well as a great place to search for sea glass and shelling. La Chata is a favorite of the local surfers with nice wave action in winter. You can try your luck and rent a board from the surf shop in Isabel.
And if it is the Vieques island beaches you are heading to, the Garden House has all the amenities you need for a fun, seaside day. The guest's locker has beach chairs, barbeque, sand toys and cooler. All you need is your sun screen.
The center feature of Garden House is a beautiful tropical pool with its blissful Zen fountain. The pool is set among tropical gardens designed by Bravos Boyz and featuring Puerto Rican royal palms, a dramatic focus on white blooming plants as well as a confetti of other tropical blooming specimens. There are two magnificent Asian Red trunk palms, as well as CoCo Palms, Foxtail Palms and Giant Areca Palms. Other plantings include ever blooming Bridal wreath, sweet, pungent wild White Ginger, Giant Birds of Paradise and bright red "humming bird loving" Hibiscus.
In addition there are seasonally producing Avocado, Mango, Acerola cherries, bananas and Breadfruit trees on this Vieques vacation rental property.
Garden House is an inspiration and collective project that reflects elements of Vieques design, island design and the owners playful personalities.

Isla de Vieques Vacation Rentals
I had a wonderful time at the Retreat. The accommodations couldn’t have been better! The rental is absolutely gorgeous! So spacious. It looks like a home you would see in a Home and Garden magazine. Beds are so comfortable. We practiced yoga on the beach (which was a 5 min. walk from our rental) every morning. Then we got out our easels by the pool (it has a covered porch) and began painting. I have never taken painting classes before, but the teacher was very encouraging and knowledgeable. I learned a lot and enjoyed it immensely. Did some day trips to the beach and went snorkeling. There was a chef (Beverley) who brought our dinners to the rental and the food was delicious! Two nights we went out for dinner and the local food was great! The retreat was so relaxing and Vieques is a beautiful island. I would definitely do this yoga and art retreat again!
This house from the second we walked through the gate was special. The pictures were a good preview, but they did the house no justice. I think we would have all loved to stay at Gardenhouse forever, especially our son. The amenities provided in the house and kitchen were spectacular. I don't think any of us could have been anymore relaxed on vacation. We all hope to return again.
