"This is a small villa located at the top of 60+ steps. Seems like a long climb but when you reach the top the reward is a spectacular view of the bay. This house is the highest in the neighborhood. For an even better view we climbed to the owner's deck (with their permission). The property landscaping is lush. The deck was a great place to relax with coffee and watch the sunrise. Cooling cross winds kept the villa comfortable even in daytime heat. There is an air conditioner but we did not use it.
The villa is about one mile(1.6 km) from Dewey, the only town on the Culebra. Except for driving to the beaches, we were able to walk to town for everything else.
It was as expected. The local manager, Alberto, was very responsive. We texted him for something while at breakfast and it was at the villa by the time we walked back.
Do not count on WiFi internet access. It is present but weak and gets interference from another WiFi that shares the same channel. Disconnects are frequent. I had ATT 4G service which was exceptional everywhere on Culebra so it was a minor issue for me but had I been planning to use my PC I would have been disappointed.
Bring clothes pins--there is a clothes line and the constant breeze makes for great drying conditions.
If you want coffee get it in Puerto Rico before coming to Culebra. Most other needs are available at Milka Market which seems to have a little of everything, including clothes pins."

"Probably the cleanest rental I've ever had the pleasure to rent. Convenient to town and Flamenco. Very comfortable covered patio, nice view, and a roomy modern kitchen. The washer and dryer were definitely a plus. Needed to turn up the speed on the floor fan to cover the sound of crowing roosters in the wee hours, and the internet wasn't reliable, but those things are minor inconveniences for such a pleasant place at a great price."

"Our family had an absolutely wonderful time at Villa Tampico. The house's design is perfect for the location. The place where you spend the most time (the kitchen and living room) has almost 360 degrees of water view, while the bedrooms are smartly placed farther inland. The breeze blows constantly, so we were never hot and there were never bugs. We enjoyed daily visits from beautiful local birds, watched pelicans dive for their meals, turtles come up for air, and iguanas sun themselves-- all while dining in the open-air kitchen. The location is right by two supermarkets and very close to town, yet perfectly isolated. Culebra's residents are friendly and helpful. We felt welcome everywhere we went. Flamenco Beach is a must, but Zoni Beach is the quieter gem. It's a wonderful place to go, and Villa Tampico is the perfect place to stay! One suggestion I would make if you're planning on staying is to rent a Jeep instead of a golf cart; the driveway is a bit treacherous. Thank you, Joe and Michelle! We're recommending it to all our friends!"
