A beautiful house situated on the north side of the island. Enjoy panoramic views from the outdoor bar of Culebra, St. Thomas and El Yunque. Wake up each morning to an oceanview in the queen sized loft style bed downstairs. Take the short walk down the hill to the beach with the complimentary beach chairs and boogie boards in hand.
When you rent the Casita, you'll be staying in the downstairs, main unit only. Although you will not have access to the upstairs unit, you will still have the entire property to yourself -- no others will be renting the upstairs during your stay. The house has on the main floor no separated bedroom, but does have a loft style bed, fold down couch, bathroom, AC and kitchen. The pool is private, shared only with neighborhood horses who often come to sip from the pool. The outside bar, however, is shared only with people you chose to invite.
Zugang für Gäste
The property has separate lower (main) and upstairs units, with the full kitchen only downstairs. A couple can rent the downstairs only (this listing -- Casita Costa Brava), while larger groups can rent the whole house (see related listing for Casa Costa Brava).
Regardless, your party will be the only one staying on the property, as the upstairs will not be rented to others during your stay if you are renting the Casita only.

While we have internet over landline, the service to our part of the island is pretty slow and can be unreliable. You wouldn't think a landline would be so affected by storms and winds, but it is. Service can even go down a few times a day - not for long, usually for just a few minutes, but seldom for extended periods. They have been promising improvements, but so far haven't delivered on much.
Be sure to be prepared with plenty of sunscreen. As with most places in the Caribbean, the sun will do a number on you, including most especially those escaping snow during the winter months. Also, after suffering almost drought conditions for over a year (we and many others lost some wonderful trees), Vieques has experienced an unusual abundance of water, which has produced more than a few mosquitoes. So be prepared to use some bug spray, especially at dusk. At Costa Brava we normally have a pretty nice breeze, which does help, but depending on season you may still need the sprays.
Speaking of plenty of sun, one of the primary reasons to vacation at Costa Brava is the fabulous pool and deck with a covered bar. It's hard to find a more beautiful and enjoyable combination anywhere on Vieques, except maybe for the W; and there you have to share with hundreds of others who are not your closest friends. Please keep in mind, however, that unlike the W we have no lifeguard, and the pool is fully accessible and without security fencing to prevent younger ones from entering the pool area or the pool itself. Also, the far pool wall forming the outside edge is very narrow and faces a steep drop off to the ground below. This ledge is not meant to be walked on, except by the occasional neighborhood iguana, and contains only a partial fence. You can see this ledge and the clear access to the pool in the pictures of the pool area. If you have little ones, you will need to make sure you pool educate them and be sure to watch them carefully any time they are around the pool.
Costa Brava is blessed with loyal local animal life. While the horses who visit are very wary and won't let you get close, they are entertaining. The few regular dogs who come buy are very friendly and enjoy guests who give them attention. Jack, the black lab mix, is especially attentive and thinks all the guests belong to him.
Since Costa Brava is our home, we appreciate and trust that your stay will be governed by the Air BNB code. We also ask for no smoking indoors and no pets.
The property is managed by a wonderful couple - Freddy Gonzales and his wife Val. Freddy will greet you when you arrive at Casita Costa Brava and is available if you have questions or concerns during your stay.
