“A great and safe rental!”
Casa Ella was a perfect rental for us (two couples). Maria greeted us at the airport, took us to Jerry's jeep rental and then on to a grocery store (think gas station food shopping) before taking us to our rental. I felt confident that she was available if we needed any help during our stay. The condo was clean and nice and comfortable. There were beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, blender (margaritas!) hair dryer and even left over toiletries and some food staples from previous guests to use. Expect noise from the town, especially as you sleep, since you will have the windows open as there is no air conditioning (plenty of fans though). Dogs barking, roosters crowing, music playing. Also we had lots of mosquitos. Culebra is wonderful but don't come here if you want to be pampered. Do come if you are adventurous and want great beaches, warm water and great snorkeling. I over packed! All you need is swim wear, cover up, shorts, t-shirt and maybe a casual skirt or nice shorts to wear at night if you go out to eat (yum!). Very casual everywhere. We felt safe in our condo and on island.
“Great Villa, Fantastic View”
My wife and I, and another couple, thought the stay at Casa Ella was fantastic. Maria, the property manager, greeted us at the Ferry dock when we arrived. She gave us a tour of the town, in her car, and then off to the grocery store to purchase some groceries. She then showed us around the villa, answered all our questions and made us promise to call if we needed anything. The kitchen was well supplied with some food staples and all sorts of utensils. The villa was clean and well maintained. The off street parking for the rental car was a plus. The view and location was fantastic. Close to the downtown area and beaches.The patio provided awesome views of the bay and the electric grill was great for evening meals. The washer and dryer was a real benefit as we could have gotten away with a lot less clothing. The outdoor shower was great for rinsing off snorkeling gear and the beach sand before entering the villa. The villa also had four beach chairs, a cooler and beach towels available. Maria and Glen also provided transportation to the dock when we left for home. They are very wonderful people that made the whole adventure special.
Excellent property. Very well maintained and in a great location. The view is amazing! My only complaint is there's no a/c in the bedrooms but besides that is a great stay. 100% recommended
Casa Ella offre une belle vue sur la baie et le petit aérodrome. Les commerces du village sont a 15 minutes a pieds. La villa est toujours bien aérée,et ont mange sur le balcon a l'abri du sokeik et de la chaleur. Séjour tres agreable dans cette villa ou rien ne manque, de plus la literie est confortable. Excellentes vacances.
“Fabulous views, quiet neighborhood, sparkiling clean, everything you need.”
We spent a wonderful week in Casa Ella, top unit. It has everything you need to enjoy Culebra. We had dinner most evenings on the balcony soaking in the view. The hilltop location in a quiet neighborhood is away from the bustle, but a short walk to town. The shuttle to Flamenco passes by at the bottom of the road regularly if you are traveling without a car. The casa is well appointed and feels like home;the bed is comfy; the shower is sublime. Stay here!
“Casa Ella.......Great home base for a trip to Culebra”
My wife and I have stayed at Casa Ella several times in recent years. We keep coming back because it provides a very comfortable and quiet setting in a typical Culebra neighborhood. The view (sunsets) overlooking the Town of Dewey is outstanding; the furnishings remind us of home, and the walk to the center of Dewey, restaurants, and shops is a mere few minutes away. We have enjoyed a relaxing stay for just the two of us, and for other visits we have brought the entire family for fun packed vacation. Culebra is a unique island, and Casa Bella has been our home away from home.
“Beautiful villa, beautiful view!”
We stayed a week in Casa Ella with our two kids. The decks and landings were great spaces for the kids to play. Very private. Loved the outdoor shower. Will definitely stay there again
