Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Culebra - Coral Cove at Villa Coral

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

Coral Cove at Villa Coral is an elegant waterfront apartment on the island of Culebra; a U.S. natural reserve that can only be described as paradise. It has a spectacular view of Ensenada Honda Bay (Culebra's main harbor) and a convenient dock; a perfect place to dock your boat or be picked up by a water taxi, fishing or scuba diving excursion. The villa also has a private parking space and jeep rentals are readily available.

The property is located in town and is just a 1-5 minute walk to grocery and convenience stores, deli, bakery, restaurants, shops & the ferry dock. Culebra has one of the top 3 beaches in the world: Flamenco Beach. Zoní, Carlos Rosario, Tamarindo and Melones are some of the other famous beaches of Culebra. Flamenco and Zoní are perfect for bathing while Melones and Carlos Rosario are great spots for snorkeling. For surfers, Playa Brava is the perfect spot to catch some waves in one of the most scenic islands of the world.

Very good location property.

  • 5 of 5

The property is walking distance to the bakery ( for breakfast) and small grocery store. We rented a Jeep to drive around the island. The apartment was very comfortable for 6 people. Great view of the bay. We will use this property again.

Ideal location for a Culebra apartment

  • 4 of 5

From the early 70's through the mid-90's, I vacationed in Culebra fairly regularly, five or six times altogether. A couple of decades and two kids later, I wanted to introduce my family to this extraordinary island.

I chose Coral Cove mainly for its location, which turned out to be perfect for us. The view from the deck up the length of Ensenada Honda is magnificent, especially in the early morning and at sunset. It's a short walk to pretty much everything: restaurants like the Dinghy Dock, the island's largest "super" market, the public library (for wi-fi), and Culebra's scuba and snorkeling operators. We rented a jeep to get out to the beaches but you could probably manage with just the local taxis and shuttle busses.

The apartment is very livable and had plenty of room for the four of us. Although we were told that it's coming soon, there was no internet access. On balance, that was probably good for our health but it did make us a bit crazy at times. (The library has free wi-fi during the day, about five minutes away by foot.) And a few bucks invested in the kitchen wouldn't hurt either, or at least a knife sharpener.

Other than those minor complaints, it's pretty terrific there. The place was clean when we arrived, with good linens and plenty of beach towels. Our kids were thrilled to discover two kayaks in the back yard, which they took out at the end of nearly every day. (Highly recommended!) Finally, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the property manager, Gus, who was accessible, responsive, and as helpful as one could ever want.

If you're looking for solitude, book one of the rental houses outside of town. But if you think you'd enjoy being in the thick of things, or if you don't want to bother with a car, you should seriously consider staying at the Coral Cove.

Beautiful Balcony!

  • 3 of 5

The condo was exactly as it looked in the photo. The view from the balcony and the trade winds blowing through the doors and windows were incredible! Our only complaint was that a portion of our security deposit was withheld supposedly due to areas of the condo that were excessively dirty, even with a cleaning fee included in the rental. I do not agree with this action, as we cleaned the condo prior to departure and no areas were excessively dirty. However, the extra fee would not keep me from returning. Definitely would have been a 5 Star review without the backend hassle.

convenient location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this apartment is very convenient. Close to everything, Ferry, grocery store, bakery and of course the beautiful water front. We even visited the library nearby. The local food is delicious, everywhere you go you won't get disappointed.

The apartment itself is clean and functional. But when we arrived, there was no paper towel or napkins. So we had to go to the grocery store to get some basics. In our previous experience with VRBO, there was always some extras stored somewhere. The facet water there is not cold to begin with, but I would recommend the owner check the hot water system. Because in the shower, you would feel the water going through the cycle of hot, warm, cold and hot again.

The towels are not in shiny condition, so I would recommend bring your own. We brought our own beach towels, but were charged $30 for "staining the towels beyond repair" which we don't understand since we only used the towels after shower and didn't drink coffee at all. However, we wouldn't mind to pay some extra since the manager was nice enough to allow us to store our luggage in the apartment for some extra time on the check out date.

Overall this is a nice place, you will surely enjoy the beautiful scene on the balcony.

Cannot Wait to RETURN to Culebra and this apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfectly located, clean, up to date and just what my husband and I were looking for. Gus was so responsive to our needs and everything was taken care of. This apartment is located on the waterfront and there is no better in Culebra as this is right around the corner from EVERYTHING - yet is quiet and peaceful. We walked to the bakery each morning, the Dinghy Dock each evening, and ONLY used the rental jeep to get to Flamenco Beach - otherwise we would not have needed a car at all.

We dove for two days with Culebra Divers and would highly recommend this group if you like scuba diving. The reefs were incredibly colorful and the water crystal blue!! What a stunning location for our vacation.
