"I have been coming to Culebra every year since 2009 but this was my first time at Casa Sueno, and my first time staying on that side of the island. Bonnie responded quickly to my inquiries on line. As promised, we were met at the airport and showed to the house which sits on a steep hill with dramatic views of the surrounding hills and bay.
The house was impeccable, and the descriptions I read on the website matched reality. There were six of us and we never got into each other's way. The house is very open and breezy, with a large terrace that runs along one side (and where we spent most of our time while at the house!) The spacious living room, dining room, and kitchen all open to one another. The kitchen was well appointed with all the necessary utensils and equipment. The dining room table comfortably sat six, and the two living room couches (doubled as futons) were large and comfortable. A small hall led to a powder room and on to the large and well-appointed master bedroom and bathroom. The latter was especially enjoyable since it opened up onto the deck (but with total privacy!) with dramatic views of the bay and hills.
Across a pebbled courtyard was a guest house with two bedrooms and a shared bathroom, all of which were tastefully furnished with care. The courtyard had a grill (which we did not use). There were 5 beach chairs and plenty of beach towels for our use.
The house obviously reflects the owner's refined taste in furniture and interior design and I felt like I was staying in a real house as opposed to a cookie-cutter rental.
Those who come to Culebra enjoy its remoteness and low key activities: snorkeling, swimming, boating and casual dining. There are no fancy resorts or cruise ships here.
The house is conveniently located: just a few minutes from Zoni Beach, and a 10 to 15 minute drive to Flamenco Beach, Brava Beach and Dewey, the main town on Culebra, where the main restaurants and food stores are located. If you make a left from the house and walk about 30 minutes you will reach Playa Larga, at the eastern end of the island, with views of St. Thomas in the distance.
One day we rented a boat from the most excellent Captain Sebastian and spent some time in Culebrita island, hiking to the lighthouse and snorkeling among the turtles.
All in all, a most enjoyable vacation and stay at Casa Sueno. We will recommend this house to all our friends and family. It really was a "dream" house!"

"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."

"Like others we want to keep this place a secret however there was something at the end of our trip that bummed us out when we got home and then completely blown away with the Lynette and her staff's superior customer service and honesty. We spent some time picking out local unique hand made jewelry and stuff for our children. It wasn't so much the cost of everything but the time spent picking everything out and visiting all the local shops. Well one of us accidently dropped the bag between the bed and couch and even after a few sweeps before we left we forgot our stuff. So we got home and thought the worst of course because we were so far from home. I made a call to Lynette and she said nothing to worry because her staff house cleaning member Angel had found it and they have shipped the items already free of charge. Its those moments that make you feel ashamed of any other ideas we might have had of what might have happened to our belongs and strengthens our belief in people. This place was just what we needed, private, clean, beautifully decorated and includes superior customer service which we all can agree is hard to come by. There were only a few things I would recommend. Do not leave any trash out at all as the ants find their way. This is with anywhere but just a note. Also rent a jeep if you stay up on this hill as the drive is steep and long. I would also ask the staff to trim the trees as the view is starting to get blocked by the growth. And remember that if it is not sunny you will not get any hot water as the water is heated by solar panels which is great but just now this. And also bring your own toilet paper. I am surprised that this is not included as it is a very minimal expense and I think we used maybe 1 roll if that. It is in the contract however we totally forgot after 5-6 months. Great job Carlos, Lynette and Angel. We recommend your cottages. Oh and another note, we were going to rent a golf cart from Carlos and there were not available so they gave us a Jeep instead at no extra charge. This was very needed as it rained the 1st couple of days but then 5-6 days of perfect weather. We had a very special trip celebrating our 10 years of marriage. Thank you! Spark and Tara Schneider"

All the 5 star reviews before me were on the money.
"Everything here was as advertised - a spectacular view, refreshing breezes, and a clean well-decorated and furnished house perfect for our group of 4. We cooked for ourselves, and the washer, dryer, AC's, and dishwasher were a luxury (we roughed it a little more on our last trip to Culebra). The owners have quarters with a separate entry upstairs but they were barely there, and I enjoyed talking to them when we ran into each other -- Evan is a talented artist and he and Stephanie seem like the type of people I'd be happy to sit down and have a beer with. They were attentive to detail every step of the way (from booking to checkout), but completely non-intrusive. I'm looking forward to renting from them again!"
