Recent Culebra reviews

  • My Favorite place to stay in Culebra

    "As other reviews said, the house have everything you need. Owners help us with the ferry tickets before arriving, making the waiting time at the ferry terminal a lot easier. Ours was a group of 2 couples and 3 teenagers and having two floors gave us all space and some privacy. All appliances where working properly and they have Direct Tv with premium channels as USA, CNN,CBS... Great for couples and families. Nuestras vacaciones fueron perfectas, la casa esta muy bien equipada y todos los enseres funcionaron muy bien. Siendo junio encontramos que la ventilacion cruzada de la casa y los abanicos de techo la hacen muy fresca y agradable. El muelle es de facil acceso y aunque hay que caminar un poco hasta la casa es perfecto. Eramos 2 parejas con 3 jovenes y nos gusto que al tener 2 pisos la casa permitio a todos tener su espacio y privacidad. El BBQ esta en el patio, es en cemento grande y comodo. Recomendamos para parejas, familias."

  • Peaceful Sanctuary

    "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!"

  • Lovely, quaint apartment with everything you could ever need and more!

    "We had a fabulous stay at La Romana A9! Sylvia and Alfonso were very accommodating. They welcomed us with a warm and delicious lunch! They Kitchen was stocked with all the necessities including special treats for our girls! Sylvia and Alfonso provided great information about the island. We used and appreciated all the toys and had had wonderful days at the beach. The views from the apartment were fabulous. We enjoyed every moment on Culebra!"

  • Crickets, Bird Song and Stars

    "This comfortable, well-appointed studio with a luxuriously large bathroom overlooks a small organic farm filled with fruit trees, banana palms and precious greens. Ornamental bushes and flowering trees surround the small deck with a distant view of El Yunque and town harbor beyond rolling hills. We heard crickets and bird song in this very quiet place and were surrounded by a dark sky filled with stars at night. We felt fortunate to have discovered this “mid-point” place between Zoni Beach (a 7-minute ride by golf cart) and the restaurants in town. Flamenco Beach was equally accessible. The hosts live on site and were invisible until we needed their help. As residents of Culebra for 25 years, they care about the health and ecology of the island. Bonus points for good WIFI/TV, filtered tap water, great bed, being brand new, spanking clean and tastefully decorated. By the time we return, there will be a roof over the deck that will give much needed afternoon shade. A micro-wave oven and an outdoor shower would be good additions. Even without these things, the place is a dream."
