COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW LUCKY WE WERE TO STAY HERE!!

  • 5 of 5

OH MY GOSH!! A person could not get any better on Culebra Island than this absolutely lovely home. I am honored but also hesitant to write this review…would like to keep this gem to ourselves, but feel it is important to write about the wonderful stay we had! We were already on the island, staying in another property in town but decided to stay longer in this lovely little island and found this property on VRBO. This home is right on the gorgeous Flamenco beach...literally steps away and no obstructed views. The owners told us it is nine stairs up to the condo and they are absolutely right! This is a 4 story main complex surrounded by one story casitas. It is also the only complex on Flamenco Beach (just voted #3 best beach in the world by Trip Advisor). However, the unobstructed views to the beach belong only to those units in the main building. In our opinion, given the stair situation, the views and the condition of the home, The Vaths’ property is the best.

The furnishings in the living room are verrry comfortable-with a nice ceiling fan. Really liked the creativity the Vaths’ did in regard to making a “enclosed 2nd bedroom” by using black curtains for privacy. Although we did not use it for a 2nd bedroom, we opened the curtains and could relax while watching TV in the living room. The entire home had Mexican tile which was very easy to maintain with the sand right outside!

The kitchen had Teflon pots and pans; plates and all the silverware/ cooking utensils/ microwave needed. A couple of small suggestions: 1) is the coffee maker. It was about a 2 cup maker and a larger maker would have been more efficient for our use. 2) the plates –it is a very nice set but they are a little heavy and can chip/break against the stone countertop. Nice plastic plates and plastic serving trays would have been easier to maneuver from the grills downstairs.

The details state that the home has no bathroom but that is wrong. The bathroom was just great. A lovely “hot shower”-no bathtub-which we did not miss. The bedroom has a safe for valuables, but we did not use it. Also has ceiling fan in the main bedroom and the “curtain enclosed” bedroom.

The VERY BEST part of this home is the wrap around porch! The tables and chairs were sooo comfortable, toward the end of our visit, we literally hardly moved from the porch. We watched charter boats pull up to snorkel,yet we able to just walk out and & snorkle whenever! Thank you Mr. and Mrs Vath!
