Like others we want to keep this place a secret however there was something at the end of our trip that bummed us out when we got home and then completely blown away with the Lynette and her staff's superior customer service and honesty. We spent some time picking out local unique hand made jewelry and stuff for our children. It wasn't so much the cost of everything but the time spent picking everything out and visiting all the local shops. Well one of us accidently dropped the bag between the bed and couch and even after a few sweeps before we left we forgot our stuff. So we got home and thought the worst of course because we were so far from home. I made a call to Lynette and she said nothing to worry because her staff house cleaning member Angel had found it and they have shipped the items already free of charge. Its those moments that make you feel ashamed of any other ideas we might have had of what might have happened to our belongs and strengthens our belief in people. This place was just what we needed, private, clean, beautifully decorated and includes superior customer service which we all can agree is hard to come by. There were only a few things I would recommend. Do not leave any trash out at all as the ants find their way. This is with anywhere but just a note. Also rent a jeep if you stay up on this hill as the drive is steep and long. I would also ask the staff to trim the trees as the view is starting to get blocked by the growth. And remember that if it is not sunny you will not get any hot water as the water is heated by solar panels which is great but just now this. And also bring your own toilet paper. I am surprised that this is not included as it is a very minimal expense and I think we used maybe 1 roll if that. It is in the contract however we totally forgot after 5-6 months. Great job Carlos, Lynette and Angel. We recommend your cottages. Oh and another note, we were going to rent a golf cart from Carlos and there were not available so they gave us a Jeep instead at no extra charge. This was very needed as it rained the 1st couple of days but then 5-6 days of perfect weather. We had a very special trip celebrating our 10 years of marriage. Thank you! Spark and Tara Schneider

Best view in Culbera

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice,quite,and private place to stay. The lanai was hard to ever leave, the property and its surroundings are very well designed from the wolf cook top to the beautiful stone work. The ductless air conditioning and solar water heating are eco friendly, worked great and top off its great design. The wi fi... well, needs help. But otherwise you will not be disappointed.

6 STARS FOR PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I booked our stay at Chango's Nest Cottage because of the photos and the great reviews from past vacationers. The Nest Cottage exceeded our expectations! It was simply an unforgettable vacation, that we now believe will become a tradition. Since we opened the doors we knew that we would have a relaxing and unforgettable time. The cottage was an oasis in the desert for us, as we were coming from New York City for a special occasion. I had plans to propose to my girlfriend of 3 years and the Nest Cottage gave me the perfect setting for the romantic occasion. The Cottage is equipped with everything you might need, all kinds of household and kitchen utensils, a grill, beach chairs, cooler and everything was like new. In our case it was an ideal place to get engage and it will be a long lasting memory. We can hardly wait to plan our next visit to Culebra and hope to celebrate many more special occasions at Chango's Nest Cottage!

Just What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

We found Culebra through a Puerto Rican friend. He told us that it was off the beaten path with very little commercialization... a great place to relax in a pretty much unchanged Caribbean setting. Wow, was he right! Isla Culebra was exactly what we needed to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! As soon as we arrived on the island, we could feel the stress melting away in the warm caribbean sun. And Chango's Nest was the perfect location for our home away from home.

The cottage itself is very accommodating with most everything that you need, pretty much as described. But, it is the location that is the true highlight. Nestled on a prominent ridge, the views to the north and east are absolutely stunning with views to the Atlantic and Cay Louis Pena! From the driveway, looking to the south is a fantastic view of Ensenada Honda. Once you step onto the deck, you will never want to leave. The view is mesmerizing and changes with each hour. We ate most of our meals here and spent many peaceful hours resting in the hammock.

But the island also beckons for you to come and explore... We spent time on numerous beaches and snorkeled various reefs. We rented a sea kayak for a day and spent time exploring Cay Louis Pena. We explored the island by jeep and on foot. It was the perfect combination of relaxation and curious engagement... plenty for the soul, body and mind. We felt like kids again!

We only ate out three times... When we first arrived we drove to Playa Flamenco and ate a great Puerto Rican lunch from the Kiosks. We had dinner one night at the Dingy Dock and highly recommend it. We also loved Zaco's Tacos... probably the best burritos we have ever had!

We highly recommend Culebra and Chango's Nest. The cottage was fairly new and well maintained. The bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean. The kitchenette was very usable. Our only complaint was that we were only given one bath towel for the two of us to share for the entire time that we were there. We requested more towels and wash rags but they never arrived. We did get another set of beach towels though. We also ran out of toilet paper and never received an additional roll. Oh well, we chalked it up to living on island time.

The WiFi was a bit hit or miss... sometimes it worked well and other times it was nonexistent. Seemed to be more an issue with the internet connection than the network.

Truly a great getaway! We'll be back!
