Loved every minute.

  • 5 of 5

I think we have just discovered our very best vacation spot ever with Culebra and staying in Bonnie and Sam's lovely home made everything perfect. The house was spacious, quiet, clean and in perfect order. We loved the wrap around porch for eating, reading, playing games and wildlife viewing as well as watching the sunrise creep across the hills and then setting at night. The proximity to Zoni Beach was super easy and it was just a short ride into town. We had friends staying on the other side of the island and we packed for the day (with our own 3 kids) and hit 3 or 4 beaches each day, took a few excursions, and ended the days at Zoni every evening. Bonnie and Sam were very accommodating and we would love to make Culebra and this house an annual get away. We still have a list of things we want to do and see!

Beautiful house and wonderful outdoor space.

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice and spacious. The outdoor area is wonderful. The only thing that would have made it even better was if we had a water view. Everything was clean and comfortable. I like how the downstairs bedroom is separate from the rest of the house. I also like how there are games to play in the evenings. It's very close to Zoni which is a wonderful beach to spend the day at. Bonnie is very helpful and responds quickly to inquiries. We had a wonderful time!

Authentic and relaxing Culebra experience!

  • 5 of 5

This house met all our expectations for an authentic, low-key and relaxing home base for our Culebra vacation. The house is much brighter than shown in the pictures. The view from the decks were gorgeous, though with the foliage we had to strain to see the water. But Culebra is so small, the water is a really short drive away. Zoni is a few minutes (fun) drive and it's a beautiful, big, unspoiled beach with great swimming. The house was very comfortable and roomy for us and 3 kids. Sam and Bonnie could not have been more accommodating and responsive. We had a few minor issues and they were at the house in minutes. Note that the third bedroom is downstairs accessible only by an outside staircase so we could not hear what was going on upstairs. Great situation for privacy but not as great if you have young kids. Thanks Bonnie and Sam!

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't tell you enough how much we enjoyed our stay here on Isla Culebra. The house was picture perfect, well maintained and clean. The views are beautiful and you are very close to the famous Zoni Beach. The owners are very proud of this house as they built it and designed it themselves with the utmost care and attention to the details. The setting is very peaceful and serene. I would definitely come and stay here again. Just show up, relax and let lives worries dissappear. I highly recommend it, you won't regret it. Thank you so much! See you again soon.

Great Location, Spacious. Affordable, and Private Dock

  • 5 of 5

I and my family spent 10 days in Culebra, this was our 3rd visit. The owners couldn't have been more welcoming. They were very responsive to emails and phone calls. The house was very clean and exactly as described on the listing. The property is located near Zoni Beach, but not within a short walking distance. I highly recommend renting a Jeep from one of the rental companies on Culebra, so you can experience all the beaches and sites on the island. The house was very spacious (There were 6 adults in our party). There was plenty of indoor and outdoor space. We ate most meals out on the front deck/porch. There is a private/shared dock nearby the house (15 minute walk or very short drive). The dock was perfect for watching the sunsets (bring bug spray during mosquito season). There also is a very friendly outdoor cat that comes with the house. The house location is about 15 minutes drive from the center of town and only about 5 minutes drive to Zoni and Playa Larga. Flamenco, Tamarindo, Melones beaches are only about 15/20 minutes drive away from the house. There is world class snorkeling and beaches within minutes of the house. The house is very private. If by chance you are caught there during a raining time there is a huge covered porch to hang out on. Also there was a large bookcase full of books to read and a few board games and puzzles. Luckily we had very little rain while we were there. There is a BBQ there, but we never got around to using it. I was pleasantly surprised that it was in very good condition. Also there was complaints of the washer not working. It was working while we were there, we did a couple loads of laundry without an issues, just don't change the settings.

If you are looking for a spacious, private, clean, affordable, place to stay, this has to be one of the best bargains on the island. Looking forward to our return.

Thank you Bonnie and Sam. Hope to see you next year.

Perfect Spot for a Tropical Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic week at this terrific home. Culebra is a wonderful little island, perfect for kicking back and enjoying the gorgeous beaches and warm weather.

The house was even better than pictured. It was spotlessly clean, very spacious and comfortable for our group of six. We loved the great room where we all gathered for a glass of wine and cooking delicious meals.

The house is close to Zoni beach which is far less crowded compared to other beaches on the island.

We couldn’t have found a more wonderful house for our vacation.
