Long story short: James, the host came through for the ultimate save when we arrived on the island to find our original rental was unavailable due to a (surprise!) plumbing rehab. We rented a car through James and where more than happy to take the place of a last minute cancelation at Casa Brava. The apt had everything we needed:... More

My boyfriend and I stayed with James for 3 nights in the airstream. It was very cute, and the outdoor shower was nice (though it doesn't have hot water if I remember, but I was able to use one of the showers in the other guest room). James was super hospitable and picked us up from the ferry (even though... More

I traveled alone with my two boys and had some apprehension about being the only one in charge. James picked us up at the airport, helped us get a car and gave us a complete lowdown of what to see and do. He was always available to answer any questions and come to our aid. The house is very comfortable... More

WOW. Where to begin. First off, this was my FAVORITE of all 5 hotels my boyfriend and I stayed in throughout Puerto Rico INCLUDING the W in Vieques. Aside from the apartment being absolutely beautiful and having everything we could possibly need, I was blown away by the instant companionship and eagerness to show us the best time possible by...

We stayed here for two nights during our trip to Vieques and absolutely loved it. James met us at the ferry, cold Medallas in hand, and took us to pick up our rental car. Gave us a super helpful rundown of the island and then the best information of all...we had been upgraded! We were supposed to stay in the... More

My wife and I wanted to get away from it all and Costa Brava seemed like a good fit for us. We never met James nor did that bother us. This place is self sufficient. We stayed in the airstreem and its a blast. When we got back I read some of the reviews and it seemed silly that some... More

Just returned from a fun getaway to Vieques- and a fabulous stay at Costa Brava! If you're looking for a place to chill out, you'll love Costa Brava. You'll feel like a local by the time you leave. We stayed in the apartment which had everything you need. Staying here is like staying with a friend that lives on the... More

This was a super and special weekend! We had a great time, relaxing and having a lot of fun at Vieques and Costa Brava Guest house.

Wow, were to begin... our trip was absolutely amazing and I am sure that it would not have been as good if not for our stay at Costa Brava Guest House. We stayed in the apartment and found it was perfect for a couple with everything you could possibly need (including a partially stocked fridge). James was a terrific host... More

Private spot to hang around, nice pool, a very short walk to the beach. James is an excellent host. Our trip was very relaxing and unique. We stayed in an airstream apartment complete with AC and whirlpool tub. Several visitors came and went throughout our stay which added even more personality to our Costa Brava experience!
