"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!"

"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!"

"Living in Puerto Rico, we had the chance to visit Culebra many times but this house capture perfectly the essence of laid back island life, and offers everything you need. The view is breathtaking, and we recommend cooking rather than going out to eat to fully enjoy this corner of paradise.
We simply loved it!"

"Villa Pelicano is the perfect house... we were a large group of 16 , we spend 7 days in Culebra . The house has everything you need. It is very clean property and the out side areas make you want to stay outside all day
(which is how my huge family spent 7 days) . There are hammocks all around the property , my children and nephew spent all day on the kayaks and on the dock and swimming in the bay ( they went to the beach only 2 times, they didn't want to leave the property bcs of all the amenities ) . I also have twin boys that are 1 year old and the house had high chairs and crib for them to sleep in . The house was divided well that I was able to manage twins running around :) Alex was amazing, anything we needed he was a phone call away . Next year we will be back , Villa Pelicano is our summer spot hopefully every year :)"
