We are in the midst of a week at the Bravos Bungalows with friends and enjoying the stay for the first time that we are not in a construction zone. We are very pleased with everything especially the pool and the progress the gardens have made in such a short time.
We have also had six or seven rentals and the reviews have been good and we have enjoyed reading the reviews left with us in the visitors log at the bungalows. The decor seems to be hitting the mark for visitors.
The Bookings at the Bungalows have been encouraging through January and February and we have received some excellent reviews. In addition to the five star reviews we have received some excellent feedback from guests that will make future renters stays even more enjoyable.
Thanks for the feedback. We will implement them. Case in point – iPod docking stations for both pool and garden bungalows as well as wifi boosters for better coverage throughout the compound…CHECK. We look forward to more renters booking the Bungalows as a base to explore this incredible island!
dec, 2012. PERFECT ISLAND GETAWAY
My husband and I stayed in the Garden Bungalow during our stay in Vieques; the house and grounds are beautiful!! The pool is incredible and it only gets better being able to hear the ocean while sitting out on the huge wrap-around porch/veranda!! Everything we needed was provided plus many extras!! It was just the 2 of us, but I know we will come back and bring family!! Love being able to walk to a beach!!!
dec, 2012. TROPICAL PARADISE
Last minute vacation and we sure hit the Jackpot!! There are two units here (one 3 bedroom and one 2 bedroom), we got lucky and got a last minute reservation. The Garden Bungalow is just beautiful, it had everything we needed plus some!! Sitting outside on the porch listening to the ocean (just a short stroll down the road) was just what the Doctor ordered!! The pool is incredible too! From star gazing to grilling fresh seafood…the whole stay was wonderful!! We also love the ease of getting into town in just a few minutes and the 15 minute drive to the Caribbean side of the island, although – the beachcombing and shell searching at the beach down the street with a cup of coffee in hand was the best!! We will definitely be back and highly recommend!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 15,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 3 Film Festivals
While we were in Vieques the local and state elections were taking place. Puerto Ricans it turns out are very passionate about their politics with voter turnout that would be the envy of most democracies. The passion was equally displayed on Vieques.
Trucks with blaring political messages blasting through loudspeakers were in full force leading up to the election. Political signs with the smiling faces of various local and state politicians were proudly plastered everywhere. On the evening of Election Day we were too tired of our renovation chores so we decided to eat in instead of going out. I headed into Isabel to pick up some pizza at Williams. As I headed into the plaza I came upon a road block and I could see a large crowd waving signs gathered in front of the municipal offices. I assumed these were supporters of the encumbent mayor as I navigated the detour around town.
As I pulled into a spot in front of William Pizza I noticed a very large line of people waiting to order. It seemed the whole island was out for the election. Stumped as to where I could get some quick takeout I remembered Costa Rica talking about Chicken King which was located right across from Nales. Off to Chicken King it was. As I headed out of Isabel I drove through a very large crowd of political supporters gathered in a parking lot and along both sides of the road. They were waving red and white signs. I am not certain but my guess is these were supporters for the mayoral challenger.
The results of the election indicated a large scale change throughout Puerto Rico. First off they chose Statehood as a desired relationship to the U.S. but the locals have assured me that I shouldn’t read too much into this because it was a trick question….hmmmm. Not certain as to what I think of this. Secondly, the incumbent governor who’s party endorsed statehood lost to a challenger who preferred the current commonwealth status. The current mayor lost to the challenger as well. Generally it seems there was a shift to the left throughout Puerto Rico.
Let’s hope the newly elected officials have some success solving the fiscal imbalance and high unemployment levels that are plaguing the island.
The Island of Vieques makes another top ten list. Pretty exotic company on this list.
