Hilary Vartanian purchased this house in 2004
This house is one of a kind on a peaceful, protected part of the island. The house has always drawn great people and our repeat renters are a testament to the comfort and beauty of the island and our home.
a large property with neighbors few and far between, a friendly helpful caretaker and a home that has every amenity needed for a relaxing beach getaway.
My brother and I had an incredible stay on Culebra and it was made all the better by our stay at Hillary's casa. The house had everything we needed for our week-long stay-- well-stocked, clean and a great location. We loved coffee and books on the deck before heading out on the day's adventures. It was nice to stay in a home so obviously loved and cared for. I left a book for the library and plan to be back! Thanks Hillary!
We greatly enjoyed our rejuvenating stay at Casa Estrella. The villa was warmly appointed with rustic island decor, and well-stocked with all of the comforts and amenities one might need (kitchen utensils and appliances, movie and book library, beach gear, towels and linens, etc.), making the place truly feel like a second home. We spent most of our evenings and mornings on the spacious deck overlooking the bay, grilling up seafood--it was the hotspot of the villa for us. Even though the villa does not have AC, it's position on a hill adjacent to the bay brought in a constant stream of breezes.
We also were happy with the location of Casa Estrella in relation to the rest of Culebra--it was set back from the more populated downtown area, becoming our own little nirvana to escape to after the day's adventures. We really couldn't have asked for more in terms of a Caribbean getaway... don't hesitate to see for yourself! Culebra is an enchanting island, and Casa Estrella encapsulates its uniquely beautiful vibe with perfection.
If you want to enjoy a variety of beaches without crowds, then Culebra and this house are for you. This cottage-style house is bright and airy, charming and uncluttered, and has a great deck on which we grilled and ate most nights. Best of all, the owners provide detailed instructions and recommendations before arrival, so you are prepared. They don't prepare you for the secluded beauty of the house, and unspoiled natural beauty of this small paradise, though. This is definitely the BEST of the Virgin Islands if you want to relax and enjoy the beach. All 6 of us LOVED it.
had a lovely time with my boyfriend here on this sleepy island while attending a wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed mornings and evenings on the porch watching the sun and moon rise, listening to the sounds of nature around us. The owner was very organized and made sure we found everything we needed.
Our family/group of six had, what we believe, to be the most relaxing vacation ever staying at this wonderful property!
Nadeen was a wonderful meet and greet host who made us feel so relaxed and comfortable adjusting to the property for the first time after a long travel day for our group and gave us great tips for enjoying our stay in Culebra even more!
The home was spacious, clean, had wonderful views of a bay on the hilltop deck, and we felt so safe which is hard to say these days.
The variety of books, music, and movies in the home was an added bonus for all of us.
Hillary, the owner, made the reservation process a joy and we thank her for the privilege of staying in the home.
A great bonus was the recently built separate casita for my wife and I which was fantastic for privacy.
Thanks again, a five star experience!

Our family fell in love with Andy and Hilary's beautiful cottage located just a few minutes from town but up a secluded hill with a beautiful harbor view. The cottage was so clean and like the other reviwers have written, well-appointed in tasteful art and comfortable furniture, kitchen supplies/utensils, a wide array of literature, DVDs and music CDs to choose from, a lovely deck plus a fun outdoor shower. The outdoor shower was an extra perk to clean off sand so as not to track it inside. We enjoyed visiting the beaches, all so different from each other, snorkeling and beachcombing and then coming back to our own quiet, restful haven to relax. Hilary e-mails you very detailed information regarding Culebra life, restaurants, stores, beaches, library, etc. so when you arrive (as newcomers) you feel like you have been to Culebra before. She is very thorough and her descriptions are right on regarding beaches, stores, etc. There were fans in every room to provide sufficient cooling but the daily island breezes coming in through the screened windows and doors were wonderful and calming for sleep. The little booknook bedroom was enjoyed immensely by our 12 year old son while our daughter and International student from China shared a room and my husband and I had a lovely room with dressers and closet space provided for everyone. The galley kitchen is neat and well stocked with pots and pans, spices and plenty of cookbooks to peruse. The landscaping is very nice and respects island flora. This was our first time staying in a home while vacationing and our experience was definitely 5 stars, thanks to Hilary and Andy! We hope to return! The Comeau Family and Fan Feng
