Reviewed May 8, 2014

Our group of 5 women, all over 56, needed a place to stay and at the last minute we found this great place.
The owner Mary, was extremely HELPFUL in all ways.. The rooms had EVERYTHING we needed, including a Hairblower and above all else it included CLEANILESS.and CAFE BUSTELO...for us Puertoricans...Beach Chairs for the Beach and a Small Cooler with wheels.....Thanks Mary, more of the Culebra Rentals should take a class with Mary....and I would even go so far as to say: Mary, you should start a School for all RENTAL ACCOMMODATION OWNERS...
We would recommend this place to anyone...we all look forward to RETURNING TO CULEBRA AND THE LIGHTHOUSE.

Mary and David, the owner, are very friendly! The House and the rooms ary simple but very clean! Rooms with window, bathroom, shower, hairdryer, towels, fine bed linen, fridge and micro wave. We only missed a TV because in the evening, culebra has no night life and is very quiet.
I really recommend the Lighthouse!

Room Tip: The yellow room was very fine!

We stayed in the green room and the accommodation had everything we needed. From beach chairs and towels to a cooler and books to read. Mary is an excellent host. We enjoyed the stay and plan to come back and stay here on our next trip. If you're looking for relaxation, this is the place to stay. I stayed with my daughter and we enjoyed going to the beach everyday and come back, shower, relax while playing a game of cards and rest. This is exactly what I was looking for. Close to the market and the beach.

Room Tip: There's no TV so bring board games to pass the time.

Staying at the Lighthouse was definitely the highlight of our trip to Puerto Rico. We instantly fell in love with the beauty of Culebra. Mary and Dave's place was perfect for us. Our family of 4 stayed in the coral room and found it to be just what we needed....a clean, comfortable and quiet place to return after our wonderful days at the beach. Mary was helpful and provided excellent advice before and during our trip. She went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. (Even brought us place mats for the table and boogie boards for our girls to use at the beach.) We are already planning our return next year. But, this time we will stay longer!!!
Thank you Mary and Dave so much for making our time in Culebra so fabulous!!

My husband and I stayed at The Lighthouse for 5 nights in February and had a great experience. Mary and Dave were great hosts. Mary picked us up when we arrived and dropped us off at the ferry (6 a.m.) The room was very comfortable and clean. There is a mini refrigerator, which was great to keep a few things in from the grocery store, which is right around the corner. Coffee maker was perfect and filters were provided. Air conditioning worked great! Beach towels, cooler and beach chairs are available to use. The location is perfect, as it is not right in town, but not too far away. My husband and I rented a golf cart for one day so we could see the whole island. Other than that we walked to Flamenco, Tamarindo and Carlos Rosario from The Lighthouse each day and took a publico back each evening for $3 a person. It was a nice walk each night in to town for dinner. The other couples staying were super friendly and we enjoyed talking with them. There was no benadryl at the grocery store and Mary graciously gave me 6 when she found out I needed some. I would highly recommend staying at The Lighthouse and when we make it back to Culebra, we would definitely stay there again!!!

My wife and I had a great 3 day stay at the Lighthouse from Feb 9th - Feb 12th. My only complaint is that we weren't able to stay longer! As others have said, the hosts Dave and Mary are great and are always there with advice, suggestions, or just casual conversation. Throughout the reservation and trip planning process, Mary was always very prompt with emails too. We arrived very early(8:30 a.m.) on the day we were supposed to check-in and the hosts were kind enough to let us store our luggage and change clothes when we arrived.

The amenities of the room were also the best we had all vacation. Small fridge, air conditioning, coffee maker(with coffee provided), a couple plates/spoons/bowls(which made cereal for breakfast and sandwich making a breeze), beach towels, beach chairs(very good condition), etc. The location of the hotel on the edge of the city was ideal for bouncing around the different beaches on the northwestern part of the island(Flamenco, Tamarindo, Carlos Rosario), getting a bite to eat in town, or even driving out to Zoni Beach. There's a really good grocery store just a couple minute walk down the hill from the hotel also.

When we make it back to Culebra, we'd definatley stay at the Lighthouse again!

My husband and I stayed at The Lighthouse in early January and had a wonderful experience. Mary and Dave are excellent hosts, very knowledgeable about beaches and restaurants and accessible when guests need things. Our room was comfortable. There is no housekeeping but they offered to change our sheets and brought clean towels. With a fridge, a microwave and a coffee pot, breakfast was easy. There is a lovely garden where guests can eat and read. Overall a relaxing and convenient place to unwind.
