Let the ocean sounds and trade winds breezes lull you to sleep.
My wife and I really enjoyed staying here because of the beautiful views at sunrise, throughout the day, and at sunset. It was more secluded than a lot of the options and provided a special sense on just the two of us in this amazing environment. Having lived only in the US midwest, knew nothing about marine life but we thoroughly enjoyed all of the days of snorkeling, especially at Carlos Rosario. My wife especially enjoyed relaxing on the beaches. We would hike to a beach like Brava or Resaca and be the sole spectators of the amazing beauty.
Culebra has a "community" culture that was a refreshing complement to the beautiful surroundings. Not being a major tourist center in the Caribbean, it retains the blessing of locally-owned businesses that we really appreciated. If you are seeking a high-end vacation with homogeneous and pristine facilities then perhaps another island is the choice for you.
The house was pleasant and our hosts were very kind and informative about the island. Whenever a need arose, they quickly found a solution. There were nice windows with screens to let in a cool breeze. The bed was comfortable, including memory foam or some similar material. Basic appliances and a grill were helpful for us to prepare an occasional romantic home dinner. The weather was nice there as usual. Time slowed down!
Heaven - rainbows every morning. Sunsets every night!

My husband and I considered going to St. John last Christmas - luckily we landed on Culebra and picked this perfect little cottage with gorgeous views, flowering plants (even an orchid attached to the palm we parked under). A quick drive from Zoni beach with a kitchen and a sunset balcony the views and vibe were perfect. Our hosts couldn't have been more generous or helpful. Nothing's "brand new" or "super lux" it's laid back, unpretentious but it's all comfortable and for us - it was perfect.

Owner's Response: This past December, Culebra did experience more rain than usually and after each shower the rainbow could be seen most often both ends it was magical.
If you are looking for a perfect getaway; this is it! We were looking for a quiet place away from the hustle of town, had spectacular views, and was quaint… Hard to believe and asking a lot, but we found it. Because it is at the top of the mountain there is a constant breeze that kept the bungalow at a perfect temperature with no bugs. The bonus was the VIEWS are SPECTACULAR!
Chap and Margo were very hospitable and attentive if we had questions. They even supplied the cooler and beach chairs! We will be back for sure.
If you are looking for that unique and special vacation destination this is it! The house sits at the very top of a hill with steep slopes falling off both on both sides provides for dramatic sunrise and sunsets over the water. At night St. Thomas shimmers in the Living Room window on one side while the bay sparkles under the moon 200 feet below. The long water views are completely unobstructed. The rustic décor fits with a charmed island almost untouched by modernity. There are NO chains on this island. Don't worry lots of good little places to eat. Our favorite spot was the Dingy Dock..you sit on the dock and enjoy the bay view with your refreshing drink and enjoy the food. The owners were very knowledgeable and helpful about the island so don't be afraid to ask for them ideas. They live in another house on the property, but the houses sit so that you don't notice them at all. The house is very clean and has the all supplies you need from cooking pots to towels and even a small cooler to take to Flamenco beach. A list of helpful hints is found to help guide you on places to eat, food shop and things to do. Overall this had to be one of the most relaxing trips in a long time. You just can't beat the million dollar view. Starting your day off with a cup of coffee watching the sun rise and ending the day with a cocktail at sunset! We have already booked for next year. Things to do: scuba diving, rent a bike or kayak, kayak snorkeling trips, beach, yoga and simply relax.
We were astonished and delighted by the view, and loved our stay in this sweet little house. It's quite rustic, so for those who want hotel-like conditions it might not be the ideal place. But if you want a place to be close to nature, listen to the wind, see the stars at night, watch the sunset and sunrise...this is it.

Owner's Response: The island is a delightful place to reflect, enjoy nature and just unwind.
Previous reviewers have it right - This is a wonderful retreat with fabulous views! It's the perfect place to relax. We spent as much time on the veranda that surrounds the Casita as we did anywhere else...long, lazy mornings sipping coffee and reading, and looking out at the harbor. The house, like Culebra itself, is relaxed and basic. It's just right! The Cory's were very helpful with suggestions for restaurants, beaches, etc. It's a 5 minute drive to stunningly beautiful Zoni Beach, and about 15 minutes to town or Flamenco beach. We had a delightful time in this special place and can't wait to come back next year! Thank you for your hospitality.
