My fiance and I stayed at Pitarres Nest for a week in January 2016. We loved Culebra and the cottage. Culebra is very laid back which is perfect for us. For those who seek more of a "resort" atmosphere or nightlife this may not be the place for you. If, however, you're looking for a simple low key spot, then Culebra is one of the best islands I've been to. Check-in was easy at the same place we rented our Jeep (Carlos Jeep Rental). Golf carts and Jeeps are the mainstay of the rental fleet on Culebra. Personally for this property and in general, I would suggest a Jeep. The clerk at Carlos had us follow her up the hill to the gated compound where the cottage is. This was good as I'm not sure we would have found it otherwise. Like most Caribbean islands navigating the streets is basically trial and error until you learn your way around. On a side note, parking at the cottage is ample, but parking in the town of Dewey can be quite challenging. The cottage is set on a large parcel just as the description says along with several other cottages. Pitirres is the most private. It sits down the hill surrounded on 3 sides by vegetation. It's advisable to take the provided LED flashlight with you, as navigating the windy path down from the parking area can be fun in the dark after consuming a couple of rum drinks!
We did have a couple of minor issues during our stay. The first was wi-fi that didn't work upon arrival the second was the failure of the water pump on our last day. With that said, Lynnette was easy to reach via text message and responded very quickly. As you can imagine getting things fixed on a very small island can be a challenge. Even though the technician and parts had to come from the main island of PR, these items were addressed and fixed very quickly. Considering the remote location I was quite pleased with the time frame.
This is the tropics, so one should be prepared for bugs and lizards. We didn't have any major issues with either inside, but it can be buggy outside at night. The cottage doesn't have A/C. We knew that going in, and with fans the temps were not too bad at night, but a little warm during the day. Our one complaint would be that the awning on the front of the cottage was wired closed and unusable. We think the afternoon temps would have been lower indoors if we could have used the awning to create some shade.
All in all, we were very happy with our stay here and may very well return next Jan/Feb!
