Peaceful Tropical Retreat

  • 4 of 5

I want to thank Ann for sharing her beautiful place with us. The views and the breeze at the top of the hill are truly unique. True to other reviews there is space for some updating of the property but the feeling of peace and seclusion you get at Ann’s cottage makes up for whatever luxuries you might want to find at this simple and welcoming place.

P.S. Morning walks to Punta Soldado were great but the steep driveway become a real challenge!

Great island, great view, great value

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 nights at the Hilltop Home and wish we could have stayed there longer. The view is spectacular and the house is well equipped with everything you need. All the windows, and there are many of them, are covered with screens. You can control the airflow in the house (and privacy) just by closing some shutters. That was handy a couple nights when the trade winds picked up. Ann was a great host. She met us at the Jeep rental (get a Jeep! The driveway is steep and golf cart brakes are not great) and took us to the house, which was handy because it would otherwise be a tad hard to find. The location provided plenty of privacy and got you away from the noise of staying in town. The house is like a giant yurt made out of wood. There is really only one room and a private bath (as long as you close the shutters in the bathroom!). Water is from a cistern and is probably fine but we preferred to use bottled water for drinking.

One real nice amenity was the books on tropical fish. We snorkeled almost every day and it was great to bring back our underwater pictures and be able to identify the fish that we had seen, and we did see many fish, turtles, and rays.

Other things that were great... The wrap around deck was a great place to sit and relax and watch beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The view gave us glimpses of Vieques, Puerto Rico main island, St Thomas, and several of the small out lying islands.

We loved this place and will definitely try to get it again when we next visit Culebra!

Spectacular Views!

  • 5 of 5

This review is a bit late, but better late than never... I stayed at Ann's house the last week of January and the month of February 2015. The house sits at the top of a steep, curved road so a 4 wheel drive is a must. The entire house is surrounded by windows overlooking the water. Sometimes a rainbow on the morning, spectacular sunsets and after dark you can see the lights on the coast of Vieques. I traveled by myself with my miniature dachshund. She is well behaved, but there aren't too many places on Culebra that allow pets behaved or not! She spent many happy hours just laying in the sun that streams in through the huge windows. Ann is a great person and was always available to answer any questions.

Perfect for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

wonderful spot with incredible views. Waking up to 180 degrees of blue sky and soft breezes. The breezes keep the place at a perfect temperature and the sunrises and sun sets, plus the occasional rainbow, help to totally relax. Yes, the driveway is memorable, but allows for wonderful views out all sides. Culebra has wonderful beaches and wonderful people. Will be back again.

My husband and I and our 4.5 year old son just returned from a trip to Culebra and stayed at Ann's rental house for 5 nights. We could not have been more happy with the general location, amenities and hospitality of Ann and Francie. We were three minutes out of town, heard no neighbors, and the house sat on top of a hill with little to no view obstruction. These views were perfect during both the days looking at the gorgeous aqua water bays and at night looking out our windows with the stars shinning bright. Overall we could not have had a better time and this location and house were perfect for us. The beaches are gorgeous and the people of Culebra are great. Francie was always available to answer questions and gave us recommendations on where to snorkel and eat. The only downside is that we could not stay longer!! We hope to return in years to come and I would highly recommend this house to anyone who wants to be a little more secluded and removed from it all. This house and the island are truly a gem we hope that it does not change.
