Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two teenage boys stayed here. We had a fabulous time on Culebra. We snorkeled at the different beaches. Zoni Beach is beautiful but not a snorkeling beach. We snorkeled at all the other beaches. Carlos Resario and Tamarindo 2 was the best for snorkeling. We also hired Captain Bill for 2 days to take us to beaches to snorkel only accesible by boat. Luis Pena was absolutely gorgeous.

Buena Vista guest house was perfect for our family. The location is great. It's spacious and clean. It had everything we needed with a full kitchen and washer/ dryer which was nice. There is wifi which made our boys happy. Sitting on the balcony looking over Encenada Honda was a real treat! We would definitely stay here again.

Incredible Views, Awesome Location, Features & Owner Communication!

  • 5 of 5

Planned our first trip to Culebra to surprise my husband for his 60th birthday. Another couple met us there, so four adults in our party. The house is very comfortable and had everything we wanted or needed. Evan answered all my questions promptly and courteously before and during our stay. The view from the top-level deck are simply breathtaking. We would go up there every night to relax and watch the boats in the harbor and the stars. The main-level deck is perfect for waking up with coffee and a shady spot to plan your day. Internet was a bit temperamental (as it is in many island vacation spots) but I would just reset the router and the modem and it worked 90% of the time during our stay. Our cell phones (AT&T) had 4G coverage -- better than back at home -- so using phones as a hot spot was also an option.

The location was perfect for us -- close to town and easy access to groceries and the roads to the various beaches. We rented a 4-door Jeep for our stay. Agree that's vastly better than a golf cart because the driveway is steep (which is why the views are divine).

Our friends ran the air in their room at night, but we just left the windows open in the harbor-front master and the breeze was fabulous. Yes, we did hear the roosters that way -- but for us it was half the fun. If you don't want to be serenaded, run the air :)

As a former vacation rental owner and manager, I really couldn't have been happier. I wouldn't hesitate to rent Buena Vista from Evan & Stephanie again when we return to this wonderful island!

Great family holiday on Culebra

  • 5 of 5

Very happy with the property - lovely view over the bay from the terrace and a nice cooling breeze through the house. Good facilities, clean, spacious for two adults / two kids.

Note - it would be very difficult / probably impossible to drive a normal car from the road onto the driveway to the property - very steep - we had Jeep rental and it worked fine.

Great views!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Buena Vista. The location is lovely and the views are spectacular. I really loved the kitchen and the dining room - the kitchen had the best equipment i have ever had in a rental place! All Clad pots! sharp knives! Decent plates and glasses! And a really comfy table with chairs.

the bedrooms and the bathrooms were fine, too. We like the small room next to the second bedroom, our son ended up sleeping there and was comfortable enough. Overall - highly recommend!

This home made our family vacation to Culebra perfect! The photos do not do the view justice-this house commands and amazing view of the harbor and ocean. We were so comfortable in this house-the layout is terrific and the washer and dryer made all the difference in allowing us to pack light. The beach towels and chairs were also a plus. If we return to Culebra we will definitely rent this home again-it was great!!

One thing-this house is at the top of a steep hill-we rented a 4 person golf cart during our stay and sometimes it could make it up the hill with all 4 of us and sometimes it couldn't. We did not mind walking the last bit to get to the house, but if you are not OK with that, be sure to rent a car instead of the cart when you stay here.

Fantastic 4 Weeks at Buena Vista!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 4 wonderful weeks at Buena Vista, first with my sister, and later with my husband, his brother, and his brother's wife; we can't wait to stay next year! We all agreed that it was the perfect place to stay on Culebra! The house has plenty of space for 4 adults to spread out and be comfortable. It is nicely furnished and very clean. I especially liked Evan's artwork, which was displayed throughout the house. I think all of the paintings were Culebra scenes: such a treat!

Buena Vista is located on a hill with a beautiful view of the sailboats anchored in Bahia Ensenada Honda. There were days that I had a hard time motivating myself to leave the house because it was so pleasant sitting in the shade of the veranda, looking at the view, watching birds and lizards, smelling the plants and flowers, and enjoying the warmth and breezes! But if you do want to leave, it is a leisurely 20 minute walk into town, and maybe 25 or 30 minutes back because of going uphill. It was very pleasant walking into town in the evening. The neighborhood and the house felt very safe, even when I was staying alone. The outside is well-lit.

The kitchen is well laid out, has plenty of counter space for preparing meals, and all of the appliances work well. The tap water is fine to drink. Evan recently bought a new set of nice, sharp knives and various kitchen tools, so if you like to cook you will be all set! The washer and dryer were nice to have, especially for such a long stay. The dining and living areas are comfortable, with ceiling fans to keep it comfortable if the breeze dies. The two sliders let in glorious breezes most of the time, though.

The ceiling fans and the 2 portable fans kept the bedrooms very comfortable. Many nights I did not need the air conditioning (unusual for me in the Caribbean). The mattresses and the pillows were comfortable. Both bathrooms were attractive, with Caribbean-style showers. There is plenty of hot water. The private bathroom for bedroom 1 is particularly large. There is also an outside shower, tap, and hose, convenient for after snorkeling.

Although we had a few issues with the house during our stay, Evan responded to them very quickly, going above and beyond what he had to do to make them right! The internet wasn't working properly, and eventually the receiver, the antenna wire, and the router were all replaced. The internet works great now: we streamed lots of movies!

I loved Buena Vista!
