Left on 06/14/2010 for a stay in May 2010 | WE LOVED IT!Reviewed Jun 14, 2010Stayed May 2010
We arrived at Casa Ensenada april 28th & stayed there 9 nights until May 6th. This was our first trip out of the us & we loved it! We stayed in the Pequeno unit at Casa Ensenada, a quaint room that was very clean. It had everything we needed - air conditioning, dishes & silverware, a toaster, blender, hotplate, cooler to take to the beach, ceiling fans etc. There was even snorkel equipment a previous guest had left & we borrowed that while we were there.
Jackie & Butch were such gracious hosts & their advice on what we should do was very helpful. We took a small 8-passenger plane from San Juan over to Culebra & then on their advice took the ferry back. They also recommended a car rental & we had fun driving around the island in a 1974 VW "Thing". The last day we were there, we chartered a water taxi (also recommended by Butch & Jackie) and enjoyed our trip to the Island of Culebrita very much. Casa Ensenada was right near the downtown area & we were able to walk to the grocery store which enabled us to make our own breakfasts & lunches and then eat out at night - also within walking distance. And the taxis to Flamenco Beach drove by our villa & were easy to access. Gift shops were also close as was the us Post Office, the clinic & the harbour. There were other nice touches - a bookcase in the lobby that had books available to borrow. Our room had a journal that previous guests had written in. This was very useful and gave us lots of good ideas. It was pleasant sitting outside near the dock to eat breakfast. We also enjoyed hearing the roosters crow every morning.
We hope to return within a year - just the 2 of us again & then another trip with our 4 adult children. The ocean was just unbelievable as were the beaches & the coral reefs.
Thank you Jackie, Butch & Karen for helping us make such a wonderful memory!!!
