Peaceful and serene
We were lucky enough to enjoy perfect weather and this spot was just what was in order. It was very comfortable for my husband, our teenage son and me. Lots of space and the views are amazing. The open windows allowed us to experience the expansive vistas and trade winds, which kept the temperature very reasonable and bugs away—not even a mosquito bothered us. After mornings snorkeling and swimming, we came back for naps and then found it hard to go back out as it was hard to justify leaving such a great place!
Perfect in every way!
My partner and I have been coming to Culebra almost every year since 2009 but this was our first time in Ann's house, and we loved every minute of our week-long stay there. Ann was very quick to respond to questions over email before we booked the house and this continued while on the island. She was always available and eager to help.
We knew where the house was, so Ann met us there, showed us around the property and told us about new restaurants since our last visit. Everything was in tip-top shape and she had even left two gallons of drinking water in the frig. (The tap water on the island is safe but can have a funky taste.) The kitchen was fully equipped with plenty of dishes, glasses, pots and pans, paper towels, kitchen utensils etc.... We regularly used the dishwasher, coffee machine, and microwave and everything worked great. There were plenty of towels and soap, and we had use of beach chairs, beach towels, and cooler bag to bring sandwiches and other snacks to the beach.
Be aware that this is one big, undivided space--but there is a door to the bathroom. It is ideal for an individual or a couple but not a group. I would recommend a jeep or 4-wheel drive vehicle to make it up the very very steep roads and driveway. I don't think that a golf car would make it.
Our routine was pretty chill: we got up every morning around 6:00 a.m. , cup of coffee in hand, to watch the sunrise from the deck and were home by 5:30 p.m. every evening to watch the sunset (around 6:30 p.m.) on the deck again with salsa, chips, and a glass of wine. In between, we explored the island's many beautiful and deserted beaches, snorkeled, read on the wrap-round deck, and enjoyed the various eateries on the island.
All in all, a very enjoyable stay with a gracious, friendly and attentive host. We will be renting this house again for sure next year! Thanks, Ann! :)
Great place for a couple. Quite with great views.
Perfect for a getaway!
Incredible views. Very comfortable. Good to be away from the town a bit. But easy to get to everything.
BEST VIEWS EVER and SO COMFORTABLE
This was our 4th time to Culebra, and by far our best accommodations. Ann, the owner, is so accommodating and nice. The place is spacious and clean and has everything you need -- even beach chairs and an insulated bag for lunch on the beach! The breezes come through and caress you as you sleep. The views are the best eye candy ever. You can watch the sun rise AND set, and enjoy expansive views of the ocean, the plants on Culebra -- with lots of butterflies! -- Vieques, Puerto Rico, and Luis Pena. By day two we were texting Ann that we would be return customers! Full kitchen -- we roasted a chicken, just like home -- and the shower is such a treat -- you are inside, but the giant (secluded) screened window that makes up one side of the shower makes you feel like you are practically outside! Love the spacious, open concept. We didn't want to leave!
I'm so happy you enjoyed the house and the views. Thanks for leaving everything in such great shape. Looking forward to seeing you again!
This is where we've stayed on our last 5 or so visits to Culebra. It has everything you need, and beautiful open space inside, Watching the sun rise from that deck is a beautiful thing. But especially, having an end of day drink while watching the sun set out there between Vieques and the Big Island! It's really special. We love this place.
