Wonderful, wonderful place!
I stayed at Ann's beautiful place for ten days in December 2012, including through Christmas. I chose my place to stay especially thoughtfully this year because I was spending Christmas without my family....I have only done this twice in 44 years. I had a wonderful, wonderful time. The stars at night were so bright and plentiful that I frequently went out on the deck just to see them and relax in the moonlight in the evening. There was an abundance of quiet, gentle breezes coming through the gorgeous, large screened windows including at night, and the sound of birds singing throughout the day. I liked that I had the option of shuttering the windows if it rained. Generally, as is obvious, there isn't much rain on Culebra! The house is spacious and homey and very straightforward. There is beautiful, sea-themed art on the walls. Ann couldn't have been a more generous, attentive yet laid back host. I read a recent review for this house that surprised me and want to let any potential renters know that the furnishings were totally ample, taken care of, in good condition with nothing torn or broken, the bed was very comfortable and there was a dining table and chairs as well as two arm chairs and more, there were no leaking pipes or infestation of insects, the wifi worked and I used it almost daily, the frig was not moldy, there was a small safe if I wanted to lock valuables (although I didn't use it because the island has virtually no crime- I felt very safe in every way) and the water was the absolute norm on small islands- I have traveled to them all over the world- you have to conserve within normal limits and you buy bottled water even though the residents drink it. I never stay in a place with ac and the temperature in the house was great all of the time due to being on the hill- I wasn't hot once. I don't watch tv when traveling but there was an ipod dock and a library of good dvd's which was fun! As you can see, I highly recommend this place and intend to return again this year!
