“a Week in Vieques”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Our family of 7 rented North Shore Pointe with Casita for the first week in June. The 4 bedrooms in the main house and the bedroom in the casita gave plenty of room for our all adult group. Two living areas in the main house allowed the 17-20 year olds a space of their own downstairs, while the adults hung upstairs near the kitchen and decks. The pool and deck were great - overlooking an amazing vista.

The BravosBoys, Theresa in the office, Linda who picked us up, and Alberto - our go to guy for emergencies, were great from beginning to end. They picked us up at ferry and took us first to the house and then took a subset to the grocery store to grab immediate supplies.

In the midst of an incredible violent and full day thunderstorm we encountered some rather serious trouble with the Casita. Alberto from BravosBoys sent a a handy man to assess the problem and a cleaning lady to help with water. Alberto came by later, called the American based owner who arrived two days later to further assess and ultimately begin fixing the problem. The issue if handled differently by Bravos Boys could have ruined our experience. They offered to move us to a different house but we declined. To make amends they bought our full group dinner at a lovely restaurant on road to Esperanza - Next Course (AMAZING food!).

The accomodations are nice and the service was outstanding. Great having a washer/dryer (and another bathroom in that space - making it a total of 5 bathrooms on property). Another nice thing to know is the the other upstairs bedroom (not the master with built in bathroom) has a trundle bed that can be separated into two twin beds.

The house sits on a cliff - not that obvious in the pictures. The walk down the water is fine - tho longer than it appeared in pictures. You can swim in front of the house - or snorkel (in fact the snorkeling was pretty good - saw a BIG puffer fish) - but you must walk down a rock covered beach to the left to enter the water without walking across slippery rocks/reefs.

Re critters - the island is filled with dogs, horses, and an assortment of bugs. We did have some bugs in the house - mosquitos and some roaches. But hey, this is the tropics and the windows and doors are open much of the day. Nothing we couldn't live with.

Liked best: Mornings on the deck.
Liked least: The house lacked the warmth and personality we've experienced elsewhere. I sensed the owners didn't live there after they remodeled as a rental... Lamps were in very short supply so reading at night was difficult...

Marc, Thank you for your thoughtful review of North Shore Pointe! We also feel that the view is spectacular and that there are many positives about the property. It is with feedback like yours that helps us get better. Bravos Boyz Management and the owners of North Shore Pointe are committed to putting out a superior vacation rental and we are addressing the issues of the second bedroom mentioned and more reading lamps. We appreciate each and every guests and hope to see the Rubenstein family again soon!

Thank you for leaving a thoughtful and helpful review! We are happy that you enjoyed the magnificent views that North Shore Pointe so generously offers and that you loved the "well equipped Kitchen. We are glad that you found the Bravos Boyz service "good and as advertised." We want to apologize for the intrusion of the ADT staff who came to make repairs. Although it is very difficult to get repairs done having to schedule companies to come over from the main island we also appreciate hearing from you how to make that more comfortable in the future. Your review helps make us better and we love that! We hope to see you again very soon.
