Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

As a newspaper reporter I have traveled and lived with my family all over the world and our stay at Villa Coqui is without a doubt one of the best experiences we have had. The villa itself is lovely, spacious, comfortable and attractive. The rooms are big, airy, well furnished and well decorated. The kitchen is also big, efficiently organized and well-equipped. The house is set high on a hill and nicely landscaped. The views from the decks (each room has one) are spectacular scenes of green islands and blue water. There is a nearby small community dock and beach on a bay with beautiful clear water that we swam in almost every day. There are also kayaks available for use. One of the best things about the villa is the caretakers, Maribel and Aaron, who were very helpful, competent and two of the nicest, most charming people you will ever meet. Culebra is a lovely small island, with long, uncrowded beaches and warm days and cool nights. The only town, called Dewey, is not much. It has a few decent restaurants and grocery stores and that is about it. But that is not the point about the island.

Repeat Visitors Who Can't Wait to Go Back!

  • 5 of 5

We just love Culebra--fabulous beaches, fun town, great food. Not much night life, but we're not into that anyway. we really love this rental. It's perfect for 2 or 3 couples, with three different bedrooms each with its own character. Starting the day on the deck feeding the birds and drinking in the view can't be beat. The place has everything you need, and is very comfortably appointed. Good big kitchen for group cooking. The place is well landscaped and private, and it's nice without being the kind of place you feel like you have to tiptoe around in. Roger & Gigi are very responsive hosts--they know the island and the surrounding waters very well and are fountains of info. Can't say enough good things!

Our 20th Anniversary Spent in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Culebra is an amazing island, and Casa Coqui made our stay that much more unforgettable! The house itself is perched up high on a hill with wonderful ocean views and a canopy of trees that makes you feel as if you are in a tree house. There are wonderful ocean breezes that cool and refresh. Behind the house, there is a hiking trail that winds uphill and leads to a beautiful overlook with 360 degree views. Perfect for beach chairs, Pinot Grigio and shooting stars. We saw 5! Everything that we needed for an active/enjoyable week was available at the house: Kayaks, snorkel gear, beach chairs, coolers, beach towels, flashlights... Our hosts Gigi and Roger were most gracious, generous and kind. Their knowledge of the island's restaurants, markets, beaches, and wildlife trumps anything you can find in guidebooks and online forums. Meeting them was like getting together with long-lost friends. If you want to experience true Culebra Island charm and lifestyle, visit Casa Coqui. If you want to watch TV in an air conditioned room or sit by the pool with an umbrella drink, book a room at a hotel on another island. THANKS for an unforgettable 20th Anniversary stay, Gigi and Roger!!!

Little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We recently traveled with our family to the gorgeous island of Culebra, where we found an absolute gem in Casa Coqui. The lush setting is secluded with beautiful views, a well-stocked kitchen and total privacy. The owners are spectacularly friendly and generous with their time and advice. This was our first visit to Culebra, but it certainly won't be our last. Thanks Roger and Gigi!

Serenity, natural beauty, and gracious hosts on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

My family (3 couples) has been exploring warm beach locations for winter trips over many years. Culebra, Casa Coqui, and our gracious hosts Gigi and Roger made this year's vacation one of the best ever.

Casa Coqui is ideal for three couples with each bedroom / bathroom private, quiet and perfectly integrated with the natural beauty of the island. We used the well-appointed kitchen nightly, enjoyed relaxing afternoons on the shaded porch looking out to the emerald waters -- and explored a different beach each day.

Our hosts were as good as it gets. Knowledgeable about the island, directing us to deserted beaches, and even helping us get ferry tickets out of town on the very busy New Year's holiday.

I think we'll be back!

A wonderful week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week with our adult children in Culebra. The layout of the villa complex was perfect for 3 couples. Each bedroom and the living area had outside decks with amazing views of the island and the bay. The villa was very well equipped, especially the kitchen. We had everything we needed. The owners were extremely gracious and helpful, but unobtrusive, hosts. Culebra is a vey special place with amazing beaches, several well stocked grocery stores and restaurant choices.
