About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms +2 Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, Sleeps 12

La Casa Mango is a newly remodeled, repainted and refurbished home on the island of Culebra, Puerto Rico. The house has a new kitchen and full bathroom. I am a veterinarian from Iowa and I can rent to you any time of the year. The kitchen, bathroom, floors and walls are all re-tiled and repainted. Please come down to do as little or as much as your heart desires.

Culebra Island

The island of Culebra has been featured in Caribbean Travel and Life ( February 2006), Islands Magazine (May 2006) on turtle watching and Conde Nast (May 2006). Culebra was the lead feature in Conde Nast of 10 smaller islands to get away from it all. I can assure you that the quiet, serenity and friendliness of the old Caribbean is manifested by Culebra. Traveler Magazine rated Flamenco Beach one of the top 3 beaches in the world ranked with Acapulco in Mexico and Bondi Beach in Australia.The island has another 10 beaches where you may be the only ones to enjoy their beauty. A trip to Culebrita to visit Tortuga Beach is a must. Tortuga can only be described as the deserted beach you see in the Corona beer ads. Perfection of sand, sea and sky.


On Culebra you make your own fun. Visitors can do as much or as little as they desire. Taxis or publicos can take you to the the beautiful beaches or to downtown Dewey for an evening of dinner and meeting the local people and visitors for a small fare of $2 per person. Everyone is friendly and enjoys a good time in a safe environment! The key to Casa Mango is obtained from Juan Rios the caretaker at 787 556 6819.All of the taxis know where Casa Mango is located and will take you there from the ferry or airport for a small fee of $3.00.


Monthly we have a licensed exterminator come in and set insect and rodent traps. Casa Mango is as free of vermin as it is possible in the tropics. Properties w/o monthly extermination services WILL be infested with vermin. I do not believe vermin belong in a property you are renting on vacation any more than you would tolerate vermin at home.

The perfect house for our family

  • 5 of 5

We have four adolescents and their friends. Also we have two dogs that are always part of our vacations. The house was perfect, we don't need to worry about luxury. It's a beach house. All of them were comfortable. Three rooms with a/c, two of them with satellite TV and wifi. Kitchen with all you will need and a BBQ. Perfect location near markets, restaurant, All you will need to have access to the rest of the island is to rent a golf car or a jeep, but you can also use public transport. All the house was nice and clean

Owner's Response: A fantastic 5 star review from Hector,Julie and their family. The central location of Casa Mango puts you in walking distance to the town of Dewey, the Casa del Sol grocery, restaurants and 2 jeep rentals. Hector says he will return soon & tell his amigos about Casa Mango. Please note the last comment that the house was nice & clean. Casa Mango is swept out, mopped and thoroughly cleaned between rentals. The caretakers work from 11:00AM - 4:00 PM doing laundry, sweeping, mopping and cleaning the bathroom & kitchen thoroughly.

Owner's Response: You get what you pay for. To stay in the nicest, cleanest and best managed property on Culebra you pay a little more. The 4 stars is usually the minimum we receive for Casa Mango. Rent from us with no worries or surprises.

The Best Rental on Culebra.

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic stay at Casa Mango for 3 days over the New Years Holiday. Casa Mango is one of the largest properties on Culebra with 3 bedrooms up that can sleep up to 14. The 8 of us boated in, were picked up & driven to Casa Mango where the wonderful caretaker, Jorge, gave us the key. Casa Mango's floor had been re-tiled and was very clean. The location is centrally located in walking distance to the downtown restaurants, bars & even the Casa Del Sol grocery. I highly recommend Casa Mango to any group large or small.The caretaker, Jorge, lives on the property in the casita and helped with many suggestions on the beaches, resturants and other attractions.

No privacy. Horrible.

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival, according to the pictures we saw, we though hat this was not the property that we rented. We are a group of over 15 people and we visit the island of Culebra every year. We rented both floors of the house believing it would be a great experience and sadly it wasn't. The house was a bit expensive, but the accommodations were great. The house is big and comfortable. But the house keepers almost slept with us, they would walk inside the house without asking permission. It was extremely uncomfortable. We dealed with that, but just when we thought things couldn't get worse, one of the house keepers pointed at us WITH A GUN. He pointed at the both men and the woman of our group because we were "making too much noise" which is somethimg inevitable when you have such a big group. It was something completely out of place because nobody in our group had guns. The Day we were supposed check out (11am) the lady housekeeper was knocking at the door at 8am to kick us out. This was very rude of her. Overall we felt no privacy, at all. Also since the first day we found cockroaches at the house. I hope you guys fix these things for future events, otherwise you will continue to lose clients.

Owner's Response: This gang of spring break partying college "students" were an owner's nightmare. The group did have over 15 people as Alondra V. states, there were 25 in a house that sleeps 16. The group consumed illegal drugs, partied until 4: 00 AM and the neighbors were yelling from across the street to quiet down. The caretaker had to "ride herd" on this group or they could of all been arrested for disturbing the peace and spent their vacation in a holding cell at the Culebra police station. I cannot control what other people do but the use of illegal drugs in Puerto Rico gives the state the right to confiscate your property. The caretaker said that there was no gun involved and the clean after rental people had to start cleaning at 11:00 AM for the next group. The above review is 100% falsehoods written by immature college children that had to be disciplined for their own good. The dopers stashed their drugs behind the refrigerator, blocked the fan & burned up the compressor. A judges son was busted at the ferry in Fjhardo by the DEA and the Fjhardo police for illegal drugs as reported in "The Voice". To top it all off the group stole all of the bathroom towels which we have replaced.

Not what you expect

  • 1 of 5

Make sure you buy travel insurance , I prepaid for 8 days to rent the entire upstairs and down stairs. The house was filthy , I stayed 3 days and went ahead and found another house to rent from a local business that does vacation rentals in the island . Coming from the US this wasn’t the type of Vacation house I wanted to spend my vacation in and have my entire family in that filthiness . When I contacted the owner he told me he would not refund me any of my money back . Wish I would of bought insurance so my money didn’t go down the drain. The house isn’t really located in the nice part of the island . Not to mention the run down car in front of your door with a broken window. These place only wash the sheets and mop the floors when guest leave ( in other words the bathroom and everything else ARE NOT whipped down). You can only imagine the dirtiness of this place. Really it doesn’t even deserve 1 star but you have to rate it. I do have to say that there was enough sheets and they were clean .

Owner's Response: The people in this group broke the up grill and STOLE the grill from the down unit. My manager, a policeman, Juan wanted to call the police for The Theft. I told Juan not to have them arrested for theft. Paula A. did not write a review for over 5 months from the time of rental. I can only explain this as "sour grapes" over trying to obtain a refund that I refuted as ridiculous. Juan, the policeman, lives in the Casita behind Casa Mango. I do not own the street and there is sufficient parking in both directions from Casa Mango.

Nothing like the other reviews!!!

  • 1 of 5

To be fair, I want to first say how many clean sheets and towels were available. That being said...since when does a 5 star rating given to a house with no hot water?? The accommodations are sparse at best but worst of all is how dirty the floor was. I went not expecting much, and got a lot less.

Owner's Response: Properties in the Caribbean often do not have hot water heaters. The showers are heated with electric shower heads that are safe, hot and efficient. The linens are 1500 count Egyptian cotton bedding and an abundance of towells are always available. The washer and dryer are available to guests 24 hours a day and they can wash their clothes before returning home. The floors are NOT dirty but were linoleum that have been replaced with ceramic tile inside and out on the balcony too. Enjoy Culebra and your stay at Casa Mango.

The island of Culebra and Casa Mango had no physical damage from either hurricane Irma or Maria. Casa Mango is a concrete casa built to withstand a category 5 hurricane. The house is totally renovated, repainted, re-tiled and refurbished. Friends and/or family can drive or taxi to numerous beaches for swimming, snorkeling, sunning or doing nothing at all. Culebra is unique in that a large cruise ship cannot dock there and jet planes cannot land at the small airport. The coral and fish are fabulous and just off shore. Fishing from the shore, dock or deep water fishing are also available. The house is wired for internet access via an antenna and a router. The town of Dewey is a short walk away. The restaurants in Dewey and around the island serve a variety of seafood and other Caribbean treats
