Perfect Family Vacation Base

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house, sitting on a hill on the edge of Culebra's main town. It catches the breezes and has lovely views. The house is in good shape. The 2 bedrooms have comfy beds with nice linens. The bathrooms are good, and the indoor and outdoor living areas are very nicely furnished. The cookware is very good, so it is enjoyable to make one's own meals here. Plus there is a nice gas grill outside too. We appreciated the beach chairs, cooler. and beach towels that were provided, and it was a nice bonus to have a washer and dryer in the house. All of this meant we could pack light.

It is true that the roosters on Culebra take their morning wake-up duties very seriously - but we didn't mind! The early mornings on the patio with a coffee and a book were enjoyable anyway!

There was a problem with the wifi during our stay, but Evan was super-responsive and the problem was fixed quickly.

This was our first time to Culebra and we loved it. The house was a great base for exploring. We enjoyed snorkeling at several different beaches (Carlos Rosario was probably our favorite), and swimming at others. We went out for a day with Captain Bill on his catamaran, which was lovely, and we enjoyed poking around the town. I recommend the Museum (on the road toward Zoni) too. For a good dinner, try Susies, and for a cold beer or a cocktail, the DinghyDock is fun. These are just a few recommendations - there is plenty to discover and enjoy here and Evan's house is the perfect base.

Culebra Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We love Culebra and have vacationed here several times. The house had everything that we needed - 2 full baths was ideal. Everything was in working order. Great view from the porch and roof deck with an occasional chicken or three wandering about. Many hours reading, admiring the view and star gazing. Homeowner left great info about local activities and restaurants and was very accommodating and helpful. Had a great sail with Captain Bill to Culebrita, an amazing island. You will hear the roosters and mourning doves early in the morning reminding you not to waste a moment of time on this beautiful island. Driveway tip: go to the top of the road and turn around to enter the driveway. I highly recommend this property.

Peaceful Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Buena Vista was one of the highest lights of our vacation--it is a spacious and serene property nestled near the top of one of the highest hills overlooking the ensenada. It is a peaceful place, despite the omnipresent crowing roosters, barking dogs, and cooing pigeons that become a kind of background music.The view was magnificent by day or night, we particularly enjoyed our evenings on the rooftop looking at the stars. Yes, the mosquitos were persistent--especially at dawn and dusk, but we either avoided sitting outside at those times or used insect repellant. We did not rent a vehicle for our first 4 days on the island and were able to walk to all 3 grocery stores and some of Culebra's best restaurants with ease--climbing the steep hill back up to the house kept us fit. Later, we rented a golf cart and had no trouble getting up the hill or the driveway--though Culebra's roads are very bumpy (plus there are speed humps on several streets) and on our next visit we will rent a jeep. The beds in both bedrooms were very comfortable--we opted to stay in the bedroom that faced the hillside to minimize noise and light while sleeping. We never used the AC, the breeze and ceiling fans kept us cool. Though some of the furnishings showed wear, we found everything here was exceptionally clean and either worked (such as the WIFI) or had a good workaround (such as abundant ice trays to replace the non-functioning ice maker in the fridge). The kitchen was well supplied with cookware, utensils, etc, but you'll need either to bring your own basic supplies (such as salt and pepper, tea, cookng oil, etc) or buy them in one of Dewey's tiny grocery stores (Costa del Sol was the least expensive but Milka had the greatest variety of staples, bread, and produce--there was also a produce stall that set up periodically in the center of Dewey). Evan's paintings, mounted throughout the house, capture the essance of Culebra's natural beauty, so even if you aren't up to hiking or snorkeling, you can still get a taste of Culebra from them. Snorkeling at Soldado was good, Tamarindo was even better, and the lower end of Carlos Rosario was the best, but hard to get to. We also booked an excellent trip with Louis Padron to snorkel and hike on Culebrita. And we had the sanctuary at Buena Vista to come back to at the end of each day! Communications with Evan were fast and his responses to my emails were considerate and informative. Thanks for everything, Evan!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Well-equipped, terrific view, quiet street, easy access to town. Just what we wanted to get away from a cold week on the East Coast. Coffee with a beautiful sunrise every morning.

House with a great view and breeze!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our daughter and her friend to Culebra just a few days ago - this house was perfect - as most of all things in Culebra it is simple but yet extraordinary. The house was very clean, its distribution was perfect - two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen was modern and well equipped. It has a dinning and TV area. The TV and wifi work very well. The porch was amazing - lots of breeze and lots of view. Its located close to town so that you can walk there. Evan, the owner, was responsive, accommodating and fair.
