This place is fabulous! it's clean, spacious, beautiful.... It's got AC, a lovely garden, and equipment to borrow (cooler, snorkel gear, water shoes, etc) More importantly, the people who run it are super friendly. Susan and her family went out of their way to ensure we were happy and felt at home. The whole place blends right in with the... More

It was like an adult hostel with private rooms, with extra touches. Extra touches were the fresh baked goods, coffee, book exchange, clean sitting room, beach towels,two outside back seating area, front rinse off area. Three rooms were off the front kitchen and it was super loud. Every syllable was echoed into our room. The room was clean but the... More

The great hospitality of Susan, the guesthouse owner, has been mentioned in several reviews already and this is one more to add to the list. Susan is a very helpful, warm personality and extremely accommodating and that really trumps any other flaws that there might be. On our first day, she gave us tips of where to eat and where...

We only stayed here for two nights this past month, but wish we could have stayed longer. Susan was wonderful and really made us feel at home. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but we had the king size bed (which was very comfortable), so I guess we opted for bed over room. Location is really convenient... More

Culebra is not one of those Caribbean island that provide some fancy or luxurious stuff. You go there for the beauty. Went there many times but first time we stayed at this guest house because everything was sold out. We know it is not beach front or near town, it is just ten minutes walk to the airport. And we...
