  • Everything they have said is true! And then some!

    "Pura Vida is as wonderful a place as one could imagine. All the superlatives that other reviewers have used to describe this property are correct. One thing, however that the photos don't show adequately is the gorgeous landscaping of flowering trees and bushes that has no doubt matured since the photos on this site were taken. We were a party of 6, including me, my wife (in our 60's), our two daughters and their long term boyfriends (in their mid 20's). We spent a lot of time together, but the intelligent design of splitting the sleeping area from the living area into two buildings made it easy to have separate time, or to sleep or be lively early or late and not disturb others. We cooked a lot, and the kitchen is incredibly well equipped and organized. There is pretty much any pot or pan or utensil you could need, and plenty of silverware and glasses. Unlike some other rentals that get very cheap with things like dish soap or sponges, or decent brooms, the Steffens realize that folks will keep things cleaner if they have adequate materials to do the job. Thank you! The road to the house is fairly steep (worth every vertical foot for the view and the breeze!), but we rented two golf carts from Jerry's and had no problems, even with 4 on board. We've dealt with both Carlos and Jerry's and had great experiences with both, but Jerry's carts are a bit beefier. We did not do much nighttime driving, but if you have young ones who want to go into Dewey for nightlife, you may want to consider a Jeep, as the trip is @ 5-6 miles of fairly dark, narrow and twisty road. We had no problem in this regard when we did drive at night, but it is something to think about. I could go on and on about how beautiful Pura Vida is, the wonderful attention to detail and love the Steffens have put into the design and maintenance of the property, and how we wailed in sorrow when we had to leave. But, read the other reviews for a full picture! We fully, totally, completely recommend this property!! Thank you Steffens family. Thank you Manuel."

  • Great house for a group! Very private and beautiful!

    "We rented the house with 4 couples- it was great!!! 2 couples had to sleep in bunkbed rooms but nobody cared because the house was so amazing!!! The view is amazing and the house is very secluded and private, but only minutes from food, town, etc. Def rent a jeep. Golf carts can't get you there and you will not want to walk that far every time you want to go somewhere! Michelle & Joe are great- super helpful and very responsive. The kitchen was great for cooking our own meals and up to date with appliances, etc. The view is one of the best I have seen & having a pool in addition to the ocean was awesome. Villa Tampico is fantastic! I will recommend to anyone wanting to explore PR/ Culebra!"

  • Exactly what we were looking for

    "We stayed in the smaller house. Plenty of room for 4 including 2 teenagers. The house was in immaculate condition and was FULLY equipped. The view of the bay and St Thomas in the distance was spectacular. Having the kayaks was a big attraction and we used them a lot. Michelle met us at the Jeep rental and gave as a thorough orientation to the island, including a stop at the market and leading us to the house. We would stay here again and highly recommend this property. Everything on the island is an easy drive from the house and the breeze blows all day."
