Villa Violette is a pretty house with nice views of the harbor. We received a call within 20min from the owner who was very attentive and helpful. Pictures do make justice to this property description and once you get to the Villa you feel safe and comfortable. Villa Violette is very well located and close to the main beaches, supermarket and food restaurants.
My wife and I traveled with our two boys, niece and nephew (19,18,16x) and the three bedrooms accommodated us all very well. VV is well maintained, very clean and fully equipped. We rented a 6p golf cart from Jerry's rather that the popular Jeep, and if you don't mind getting soaked by sporadic rain showers, it is the transport of choice to see the island (limitation on off roads). The local manager of VV was available at all times and very helpful providing orientation on Culebra's to go places and activities. Flamenco beach is a given, Zoni great for body surf and Tamarindo's turtle swim is a most!...Milca's supermarket is perfect to replenish your bbq deck/sunset relaxation mode and there are several food businesses for all tastes (Zaco Taco, *Susie's* and *Azul*, all well recommended, *require reservations*).
Already planning on bringing additional family members to Culebra and to another stay in Villa Violette.
Note: the Ferry tickets purchase from CUL to PR is an "experience", so please plan ahead and be patient....
After looking at options to stay in Culebra, PR we settled on Via Violette, and boy were we happy with our decision! The property is extremely well maintained, clean and centrally located near the town. We were able to utilize a cooler, some beach toys and chairs that the owners have graciously provided. We were extremely happy with the accommodations and loved the view from the top balcony. Thank you for providing such a wonderful stay for our family and we will definitely return to Via Violette again!
This was our fifth visit to Villa Violette we think and it never disappoints. Everything was perfect as always. The villa itself is set in a wonderful location with a fantastic view of the Ensenada Sound.....boats coming and going during the day and at night a sky full of stars. It is close to all amenities from the ferry, to the airport, to the supermarket, to the most wonderful beaches, some of which were completely deserted. Brava and Resaca are both well worth the hikes down if you like a beautiful sandy beach to yourself!
For the first time, we rented a golf cart rather than a car. What a great way to see the island! Nothing is too far from the house so we found that we would drive to several different beaches during a day and come home to the lovely restful villa and garden for lunch...Several mornings, we also added early trips to Tamarindo to swim with the turtles. We felt honoured to be allowed to invade their waters and watch them eat and swim. The owners and manager were a pleasure to deal with and very attentive to our needs. Yes, we would definitely recommend this lovely villa as a place to visit and we can't wait for visit No. 6 in the future!
Villa Violette is an excellent property. Ideally located, near the ferry port, airport, supermarkets, car rental companies and on the same side of the Island of the most beautiful beach in the world, Flamenco Beach. This time we rented the whole house and it was better than we could imagine. The house has an internal staircase to communicate both floors and everyone in our group was comfortable and very happy. We all hope to come back very soon.
Culebra is a truly wonderful place and Villa Violette is an ideal place to stay while you are on the island. The house has great views of the harbor from both the upper (where we stayed) and lower levels. It is an easy walk to town to eat and there are a couple of descent restaurants closer by if you arrive later in the day or are worn out from snorkeling or spending time on the many beautiful beaches. All the rooms are equipped with ceiling fans and when my family of five stayed in March there was no need to turn on the air conditioning because the fans and the sea breezes were ideal for keeping the house comfortable. I do admit that my wife and I did turn on the air conditioning in our bedroom on the last night in order to get a good night sleep since the cacophony of rooster calls (very charming but also a little overwhelming) had begun to take its toll after three nights. My children, however, left their windows open since the sounds didn’t bother them as much. The owner is kind enough to provide ear plugs but if you are sensitive to sound and want to sleep with the windows open you may want to bring more heavy duty ear plugs or a white noise device. The upper level easily accommodated our family of five. We didn’t cook while we were there so I can’t vouch for the kitchen equipment. A quick perusal of the kitchen indicated the house was better equipped than some I rented but that it would be good to check with the owner ahead of time if you were planning something that requires special equipment. Having rented quite a few houses over the years in a wide variety of places I can say that Villa Violette represents one of the best values in house rentals that we have rented or seen. The owner was very pleasant and easy to deal with and was extremely responsive. He provided great advice about how best to enjoy the island and where to obtain provisions.
Our family of four loved Villa Violetta. We had the upstairs apartment. No one was renting the lower one. The photos of the inside while accurate don't do the rooms justice. The apartment was much nicer than what I was expecting from the website. The walls seem freshly painted and the views from the living room and deck are beautiful. Everything was absolutely clean. The owners communicated swiftly and clearly. They also provided very useful information about the island.The service while there was also excellent. When the grill's propane ran out , the caretaker came quickly to install a new one. The roosters and dogs are loud at night and in the early morning, so I did use the ear plugs provided. We spent our days snorkeling, body surfing and exploring the island's beaches( again- the owners informative material was very helpful) and ate our dinners out on the deck at night.
I would love to be able to return someday and would recommend Villa Violetta without reservation.
