  • The location can't be beat

    "This was our 6th visit to Culebra and we have stayed at different locations, all over the island. This location is just the best, since we really enjoyed staying right in town, with a short walk to the markets and restaurants nearby. Our rental got off to a rocky start, when we were given the wrong access code to the key box, but a phone call to the owner quickly remedied the situation. We immediately fell in love with the place and the balcony over-looking the bay, is one spot you'll never want to leave. There was a wonderful breeze the whole time we were there and we never needed the AC. We didn't realize that the washer & dryer are only available to long term rentals and we were only there for four nights. Not a big deal, but I do wish that had been mentioned in the website description, or maybe I over-looked that? Anyway, we had an amazing time there and sure can't wait to return!"

  • Relaxing vacation

    "Location was great, close to airport, main street, stores and beaches. Airport was about 1 mile away, and planes taking off went right over the property, but planes did not take off more than a dozen times during daylight hours, so was not really an issue. The view of the bay from the front patio was beautiful. Air conditioning kept the house comfortable. Kitchen was adequate, and tap water was drinkable (very good)."

  • 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!"
