We live in Puerto Rico for quite a while and go to Culebra whenever we like to escape city life. And that happens very often.
Owners, Sigrid and Eckard D. purchased this villa in 1982
We were looking for a property in the U.S virgin Islands, but then we decided to build this house on the island of Culebra since it has great beaches,has convenient and fast access from home and easy going and friendly people. Most of them are bilingual.
This house in in a fantastic location overlooking the water - the view is breathtaking. There are two very spacious decks to relax on, with patio furniture to include tables, chairs, recliners and hooks for a hammock. There is quick access on paved roads to virtually anywhere on the island. Very convenient to restaurants and stores. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and there are two private bedrooms. The house is big enough to comfortably accommodate 6 people. There is satellite TV and Wi-Fi. There is a washer and clotheslines in place. All we had to do was relax and enjoy. The owners, Sigrid and Eckard are so easy to work with and very personable when we met them. We would happily recommend this property to anyone and will probably return ourselves next year.
Our family of 4 stayed in the larger unit for 6 days. We found the location to be ideal with water views, quiet road for walking, including the 15 minute walk to to Punta Soldado, a small beach at the end of the road. The house was very comfortable, the winds were present most of the time keeping the house cool. The kitchen was well equipped, we only ate out one time while we were on Culebra. We had rented a car in order to access all of the beaches, but you could stay here and walk to town to the grocery stores and restaurants if you wanted. We were looking for quiet, comfortable house and access to the out of doors, we found this and more at the house. The owners were a pleasure to work with, making the booking and stay very straight forward. We highly recommend this property.
I can echo the other positive reviews emphasizing the wonderful decks and views, well equipped kitchens and cleanliness. Our daughter and boyfriend were with us in the larger unit and we appreciated the privacy afforded us by having one bedroom on one floor and the other on a different level. Some snorkels and fins, beach chairs, and filtered water are available, all very nice pluses. Far enough from town that I'd advise having a golf cart to get around. The larger unit had comfortable seating for the four of us. The smaller of the two units was perfect for the two of us after our daughter left. It can accommodate four people but not as comfortably as the larger unit. This was our second time on the island and our first time staying in Sigrid and Eckart's apartments. They are warm, engaging people who are quite helpful- I was very happy that I got to chat with them in person. We'll hope to return in the future.
My wife and I stayed in the larger unit, and thoroughly enjoyed the view from both decks. The upper one was ideal for star gazing while the lower was large and had a shade area that allowed us to enjoy all our meals al fresco. We found ourselves out there, nearly every morning, enjoying the sailboats. The kitchen was well outfitted for all our cooking needs.
The house is situated to catch the Trades, and we found no need of the air conditioners, but they mightbcome in handy during the late spring and summer. All in all, a lovely way to experience Culebra!
Ideal for my daughter and I to escape busy city life in Canada to mark her 30th birthday, this two story duplex unit was perfect. We enjoyed five different beaches during the day for swimming in the warm waters with sea turtles, fan coral, tropical fish in calm waters. We loved coming home to this clean, spacious three story house, thoughtfully fully equipped with cooking supplies, a great shower and private bathroom on each floor, we enjoyed the decks for breakfasts and sunset dinners.
The owners even had a radio for NPR broadcasts or other local news and provided a wireless connection for avoiding a digital detox after all. Best of intentions....
A half hour walk to town, or a frequent hitch hike, I recommend you book a golf cart in advance from Carlos' rentals. All were booked when we arrived. Banking at the ATM had a daily cash limit, so that and the exchange fee were annoying.
We felt safe the whole time and even enjoyed a daily visit from a feral kitty. We curled up with good books at night and enjoyed the fans and wind to keep cool. One of the few vacations where I felt fully rested from my busy executive life style back home. Well worth the two days of travel to get there! Recommend taking Flamenco or Vieques tiny six seater for the thrilling trip from San Juan, stunning coastal views and memorable landing in a narrow valley. An unforgettable trip. The host couple were extremely patient with my queries that could not be answered by reading guidebooks or online searches. I did pack mosquito repellent, worried about Dengue and Zika, but we avoided being outside at dawn and dusk, somrarely saw mosquitos at all.
This is our 3rd time staying at Punta Aloe and we have stayed in both units. One unit is slightly smaller than the other (the larger unit has a larger living room), but they are both well designed, nicely and simply decorated, have all the amenities necessary for a confortable stay, and impeccably clean. The view overseeing the bay from the terrace is wonderful and it is very quiet and private, at a walking distance to town ( 15-20 minutes), and 5 minutes by car. We hope to come back a fourth time !
Sea birds, hawks, finches, thrashers , nightingales, anis, frigates, herons and pelikans are some of the birds that help to make this area a birds lover's paradise.
In the evening an easy walk or drive takes you to a restaurant on a neighboring hill where you might have a drink or good food while enjoying the stunning views from above.
Punta Soldado or Soldiers Point is a picturesque bay where snorkeling is a must because the underwater world is outstanding. The beach is closer to the house and very often you are the only visitor there!
There are also two privately owned docks that can be visited for sunbathing , fishing and loading/unloading.
