Villa Pelicano
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We rented Villa Pelicano for a week in Februaury. Culebra is a quiet and low key island with beautiful, uncrowded beaches. We saw the same people many times- it certainly was not overrun with tourists. Villa Pelicano was perfect for our family which included 7 adults and one infant. We rented the top portion of the house only and had plenty of space. Alex provided a pack and play and a high chair which were great. We loved the waterfront location and being able to kayak off the dock each morning. The kitchen was well stocked. The location is great- quiet but just a quick drive in to town or to the beach. We hope to return soon!

What a beautiful place! Villa Pelicano is the best kept secret in Culebra; from the friendly staff, great customer service, clean accommodations, and peaceful atmosphere... It is really a jewel. We stayed at the downstairs apartment and absolutely love the breathtaking view from the kitchen while enjoying my morning coffee, followed by the kajaks' trip with my daughters. Thank you Alex for been so flexible and responding so quickly to our last minute request. We'll be back!

Two friends and I stayed here for a long weekend in December. The facilities were very clean and comfortable, and there was a fully equipped kitchen for cooking should we have wanted to (but we mainly opted to just use the refigerator to store wine and beer). AC is available, though I opted not to use it. There were kayaks with life jackets and paddles easily accessible and for free use, and the owner (Alex) of the establishment gave us some tips on where to kayak, snorkle, etc. Alex was also helpful with giving us ideas for where to eat and find other activities on the island and was a pleasure to speak to and have a few glasses of wine with as well. There were several hammocks to choose from for relaxing :) A few docks down there is a guy who runs a catamaran day trip with food and snorkling (BYOB) that we didn't have time to fit into our trip, but sounded phenomenal. I would recommend renting a car anywhere you stay on this island. Cabs take a while to arrive and walking is nice for liesure but not ideal for getting around the island for meals and activities. There is no restaurant at this lodging facility (yet) but there is another hotel right across the street that serves breakfast from 8 to 10. I'd get there a few mins earlier than 10 - if its quiet they will shut the grills down early. Shoot for more like 9:30 or earlier.

Awesome place to stay! Best place on the island to stay. I have to say that staying at the Pelicano made the visit to Culebra perfect. The island is very quaint like travelling back in time 30 years. If you are looking for the “resort experience” this is not the place for you. If you want to experience the local island life and visit some beautiful beaches this is ideal. We practically had Zoni beach all to ourselves. Zoni beach was beautiful, we felt like we were living in a tropical paradise. The Pelicano is outside of town and you must have a Jeep or a golf cart. We rented a golf cart from Carlos which was really fun. Everyone on the island is very helpful and accommodating. We did all our food shopping on the island without a problem. The prices may be a little more than home but not high enough to compensate for the inconvenience of transporting food from the main island. The Catholic Church has mass at 7pm Saturday night and 10 am Sunday morning, in Spanish. The priest was very dear and did say some of the homily in English for us. He also invited my 2 daughters (ages 11 and 14) on to the altar to say the Our Father. We did minimal cooking but the Pelicano is very well equipped if you choose to cook. We stayed two nights which was not enough. We did bring back food to eat in the beautiful open air kitchen and we relaxed on the hammocks each morning and evening, very peaceful and private. We enjoyed snorkeling with Captain Bill. His catamaran is docked just steps away from the Pelicano. He provided great food and snacks and took us to some very nice snorkeling areas. Alex, we so appreciated everything! Thank you!

Room Tip: We had the ground floor rooms which were great

If you are planning to spend a weekend, a week or a month at Culebra,PR with family and friends, the place is Villa Pelicano. The location is perfect, the house is charming and cozy. Nice for the active ones or the lazy others! Go kayaking or just relax in a hammock. Cook outside or inside with a cocktail at hand, it is just fun all the way. Quiet and peaceful, only your laughter will interrupt the peace! Great! this is my second time there and I will be returning.....

Perfect for us, traveling as extended family with friends.
Beautiful surroundings. The area felt very secure and secluded.
We especially enjoyed the dock and the hammocks!

Just what to expect of Culebra!
Thank you!

This home is perfect! Alex is wonderful to work with and very accomodating. Villa Pelicano has everything you could ever want in a vacation rental: outdoor kitchen, huge open indoor living space, a dock on the water with kayaks. We brought our own fishing pools and caught several Red Snapper from the dock. Kayaking out to the coral sand bar is AMAZING. We collected several shells to bring home with us. Captain Bill is just two docks down and has a sailboat tour that is just a must do! This place was a great find and I cannot wait to return to Culebra Island again.
