Lovely little cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful getaway to Zoni Breezes. This property is quiet, secluded and was just what my family was looking forward to for a vacation spot. We would definitely stay here again if we make it back to Culebra again.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

Zoni Breezes Lower provided us a fine home base to explore Culebra. Good communication with host's team. Kitchen has the basics for a several day stay. Would consider returning!

Excellent Value and Location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at Zoni Lower in January. The place was as advertised. The hikes in the hills out back were excellent and proximity to Zoni beach is good. There is a great 4 or so mile round trip if you walk from the house to Playa Larga and then up the beaches and over the headlands (a bit of a scramble) to Zoni. This is the part of the island to be on in my opinion. The big houses are too expensive and stuff "in town" all too dingy. Tom's little retreat is perfect. Def need a Jeep for the road in and NOT a golf cart. I've been to 10 or so Caribbean islands and Culebra is great! You are alone or nearly alone on most of the beaches. Best snorkeling was at Playa Resaca among the rocks all the way to the right a couple hundred yards or so. What a great island. Pretty small so no need to go back there (I like new ground). If you're looking to spend tons of money and "be seen" go to St. Bart's or St. Martin, if you want to chill naked alone on beaches you have to hike into, go to Culebra. Ain't much infrastructure. Thank you Tom.

Zoni Breezes Lower - Quiet Country Setting

  • 3 of 5

The unit was very clean and we had lots of hot water and good water pressure in the shower. It was nice to be so close to Zoni Beach. The handy person picked us up at the airport. A repair was made promptly after our complaint.

Please note that you will not see negative reviews or negative statements about this property online because the owner has the following clause in his contract that you must sign: "should renter publish or facilitate publication of any disparaging reviews of the premises on the internet or anywhere else, it is agreed that renter has violated this contract and shall be liable for liquidated damages in the amount of ( amount deleted per website policy) to be charged to renter's credit card, or collected by other means..."

In other words, he will bill you for saying anything negative online. And it is a large amount of money.

As of March 14, 2017, this clause becomes illegal under the Consumer Review Fairness Law. You can google the law to see your rights.

Note that he has a similar "gag clause" in the contract to rent the vehicle.

Secluded and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The description of this was just as it was described. Very quiet and peaceful. You will need to rent the jeep since the house is miles from anything....except Zoni Beach which is about a 15-20 min. walk from the house. There is only one town on the island, Dewey, which has everything you could need. There are restaurants in town, but eating at the kiosks on Flamenco Beach (the only beach with food and bathrooms) was just as good as the restaurants in town and half the price. If you don't mind the price though, be sure to check out the Dingy Dock and Mamacitas...

The house itself is on the top of the hill which makes for a beautiful view if you are in the Upper. We stayed in the Lower but the couple renting the upper were gone for 3 days and told us to make use of the balcony. It really made the stay much more enjoyable with the breezes and the view. Be sure to bring your own beach towels, towels, and washcloths.... if you use more than one......We were given one towel apiece for the whole week, so it was to the "grocery" we went to buy beach towels and bath towels and detergent....The home was nice, but we weren't there that much..the island has so much to offer with the beaches and snorkeling and hiking. Be sure to plan ahead and rent snorkel equipment and beach chairs and coolers, there were none at the house. The do have a boogie board that we had a ball with tho....Staying at the Breezes was good, but I think next time we will try and stay a bit closer to the town and Flamenco beach, which was our favorite. The owner was very helpful and clear about the house's location and the "remoteness" of the location. The drive was about 15-20 minutes to get into town or to some of the other beaches, so if you want to me in the middle of things, this is not the place, but if you want to be secluded and peaceful, and don't mind a bit of a drive, then this place might be just what your'e looking for.
