“Definitely a repeat. Don't need to rent a car.”
Reviewed 12 April 2009

Several times on day trips to Culebra I stopped by the Boheme to check out the place, and I always wanted to stay there. Over spring break this year I stayed 1 night with my sister and a friend. What attracted me was the picturesque patio and property and nice location on the edge of town. Shops and restaurants are in walking distance, and the taxis provide transportation to the beach. (You do not need to rent a car unless you are spending several days and want to explore more of the island or if you are in a family group and want to cut the back and forth cost of taxis. ($3 each way per person). The water taxi that took us to Culebrita and even met us at The Boheme's dock. The negatives I encountered at the Boheme were that the beds were not tremendously comfortable, there was no one on duty in the night, and the locks on the doors did not seem very secure although the place seemed safe. I do look forward to the next opportunity to stay at the Boheme, and I would recommend it for anyone who would like a charming, quiet, and convenient location.

This place is beautiful and right by the ocean with a great view! One of the first things I noticed was the attention to detail - there is a fully equipped communal kitchen, a hammock to lounge in, numerous places to hang out on the patio, and you are very close to all the action in town. Although we ended up getting a room that did NOT have a view of the ocean (Room 2) because everything else was booked, it was not a problem since we spent most of our time outside anyways. The room was basic, but included everything we needed - incl. a small fridge and a small, open closet. The room was very clean and we got fresh towels every day. The bathroom was small (with shower), but sufficient. The A/C was pretty loud, but we got used to it (the noise helped us to tune out the sound of chickens across the street at four in the morning ;-) We were glad to have found this place and highly recommend it! Also, the Dinghy Dock restaurant is right next door and has some GREAT food at reasonable prices! We ended up eating at least one meal there every day (we stayed for five days).

I would definitely stay here again. We had a great time, the room was neat and clean, and Ginny was super helpful-- she even let us come back the two days later when we weren't even staying with her so that we could keep our bags with while we hiked nearby..

My husband and I stayed in Room 4 at Villa Boheme for 2 nights in late December. The bedspread smelled like pee, there were no screens on the window -- with the window open, anyone could easily come into our room; it didn't feel safe to keep the window open at night, which was disappointing because the breezes were so nice -- and the heavy curtain/blind was unsightly.

When we arrived, our bathroom was flooded but it was taken care of promptly and was not a problem during our stay. Everything was really run down feeling in the room.

HOWEVER, the rest of the place was beautiful. The patio is great with a breathtaking view. The communal kitchen is very nice and clean. Right next door is a seafood restaurant, gift shop and snorkel/bike rental shop and a grocery store is on the corner. It's a short walk to Mamacitas (great place, but we had to wait almost an hour for our food!) and the ferry. We endured the room but will go for something a little nicer next time.

Surprised by how clean the room was! Just expecting something more "rustic" i guess, but it was as clean as any other hotel, may even more! We had room #11 w/balcony and kitchenette. Next time we probably wouldn't get a room w/ kitchenette (ate out mostly), but the balcony was great! Nice to have some privacy outside. The main deck is amazing. Location good, walked to/from ferry, restaurants, well, i guess that's all that's there!

Highly recommended!

Fantastic location, walking distance into town, ferry dock and some restaurants. Room was clean, simple, comfortable. Staff not very friendly or helpful, with the exception of Lucy.

I agree with the previous reviews. Villa Boheme is exactly as advertised. Great location, right in the town of Dewey. It is within walking distance to a couple of grocery stores, and restaurants. Seems like you can pretty much walk through the entire town in 20 minutes. We stayed in the king sized room with the kitchenette. More than enough room for two people. It was very quiet during our stay, since we were there during the week. The only thing is that there are roosters all over the place. So, I would recommend ear plugs if you want to sleep past 3am. Even with that, we would definitely stay there again.
