Beautiful Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

No need to look at any other house, this has it all! This rental went beyond our expectations after months of planning my son's birthday and getting my entire family together. Everyone was comfortable, relaxed and extremely happy with the house and amenities. Alex was very helpful with any questions we had. You can snorkel right off the pier, water is so clear like everywhere in Culebra. The outdoor kitchen and grill had everything we needed, just try not to leave food out, friendly chickens and roosters own the place ;). We spent the days at the beach (Zoni (my fav), Flamenco, Tamarindo, Punta Soldado, Melones) and then relaxed at the house in the afternoons. Plenty of parking, the house has signs with instructions everywhere. One recommendation would be to have plenty of insect repellant. We had the time of our lives and can't wait to come back!

'Home away from home'

Another wonderful stay at the Villa Pelicano! The outdoor kitchen and bbq are fabulous for cooking the fresh fish. We love sitting on the dock and watching the boats, turtles, and fish. Great place with wonderful memories for our family! Thank you Alex!!

The best thing about Villa Pelicano was the owner! Alex promptly responded to my emails, phone calls, and texts from my first inquiry to our departure. He answered questions and offered recommendations from restaurants to beaches and all his suggestions were great! In fact, we would have overlooked Soldier's Point Beach if he had not mentioned it to us and it was one of the best snorkeling spots we visited AND it was just a minute or two from the house! Alex really wanted to make sure we had a wonderful time. The location of the house is great. The view is fabulous. There are multiple kayaks to use. The house itself is older (only complaint was could have used brighter lighting inside for us older folks - tried to rate as 4 1/2 star but trip advisor settings would not let me). House had everything we needed and it was clean. The beds were very comfortable. My kids even commented on how well they slept there! The house has several terraces; wonderful to sit there or on dock. My kids loved the hammocks! We would definitely stay here again! Thanks, Alex!!!!

“Best tropical vacation of my life”

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to Culebra, Puerto Rico and had little clue as to what I was doing renting a home off of homeaway.com. Once we arrived to the villa, we were instantly in paradise. That's when I knew that, I had made a great decision. This would be a vacation to remember for the rest of my life. There was nothing better than waking up in the morning with some coffee and sitting on the dock with the bright sun or going for a morning kayak ride around the bay. Not to mention there are a lot of things to do once you get to the island.

Once we got to the villa we were acquainted with Captain Bill (he has his catamaran a few docks down from the villa) and he took us out on a day trip fishing and snorkeling around the island.

Then there are all the small beaches around the island. With the villa being at a prime location (easy to get to and easy to get to other places from), we were able to explore to our hearts content. Down a small road away from town when we exit the villa driveway, we found two beaches! They were small, but still gorgeous. Zoni beach was only a 10 minute drive (if you get stuck behind a golf cart) from the villa. Zoni was by far my favorite for beaches. It was the perfect beach to get away.

Since I've been back, I've told all my friends that they NEED to spend at least one vacation in their lives to Culebra and that I can show them this pretty neat villa to stay at.

If a person is in between choosing Villa Pelicano and a different one. I'd say choose Pelicano, Alex was awesome to work with and even helped us out when some of our group had issues with their flights getting to the island. And when I left my camera at the house, he notified me immediately. Then worked with me to get it back home.

I've always been a person who likes to go to different places for vacation every time, but after the week I spent at Villa Pelicano, I can easily say that I want to and will plan to come back to spend more time there. Once you get here, you will not want to leave and you can quickly understand why some people never to leave.

We had an excellent time in Villa Pelícano. Our stay was BETTER than expected. We stayed a week and the place is great for a big group (we were 18). It has plenty of space for everyone to enjoy. The upstairs living room is spacious and the downstairs is very comfortable. I loved the pier it has. It means you don't have to always go to the beach as you can use the backyard as your private swimming pool. His owner was very nice and an excellent host. We enjoyed our time there and will definitely love to go back!

“Awesome place”

  • 5 of 5

Nice place to relax and rest. Great for a family getaway. Culebra is a magic island. We loved our stay here. Alex is an excellent host. He made us feel at home. Playa Flamenco is definitely one of the top beautiful beaches in the world. If you come back to Culebra we will stay here again. Thanks Alex for everything.
