The kitchen was adequate compared to other places we have stayed. Nice hot water from the shower and the a/c was great! The only thing I would fix would be the rooms especially the beds that are uncomfortable, their general appearance and the sheets smell like humidity. Basically its a place to take care of the basics that you need. Buy Citronella since there are a lot of mosquitos inside and outside in the patio area where the bbq is. Due to this I recommend that they change the windows and door screens so that mosquitos don't get in as easily as they do now.
We stayed the last 3 weeks of February --our second stay in Casa Mango Down. It has all of the basics that we need -- WiFi, kitchen/cooking, reasonable water for shower, TV, W/D, space. The caretakers Juan and Christina Rios are wonderful people -- and very attentive the few times things didn't work. In a central location -- residential neighborhood -- a few minutes from town and a few minutes to beach. You get used to the occasional barking dog. And only $100 per night. It is not perfect, but meets our needs better than other places we have stayed in Culebra (including Flamenco Villas). The main missing element is aesthetics -- but we get that when we go to the beach, to town, drive around, etc. We like having the extra bedroom to keep our stuff. It is nice to have the patio The biggest issue for us (my wife just had spine surgery) was the relatively steep steps going down to the apartment -- but Juan intends to address that soon in a fairly simple manner.

Casa Mango Lower was perfect for our family! Cheap and a great location. Just a few minutes walk to all of Culebra's amenities but off the beaten path enough for peace and quiet. Juan the caretaker was very knowledgeable and helped to point us in the right direction several times. The patio was a great private place for us to relax after our long days of exploring paradise. Also we arrived a day earlier and Dr. Brewbaker and the staff was still able to accommodate
us. We would definitely recommend this to travelers who prefer to explore on there own and that are interested in a cheap amazing vacation.
Upon arrival to rental property we immediately realized that this was not the property that we thought it would be according to the pictures. Lady immediately kicked us out because it was not 4pm although we were told by owner that we can leave belongings. We are felt disrespected by both lady and man that were in charge of property. Male seemed to be drunk during both instances we spoke to him. We had to park rental car in the street because there was a car occupying the space. The downstairs apartment was had no privacy since the couple in charge lived rift behind, with a dog and all the odor, which meant we could not BBQ. Bathrooms smelled like urine. Overall the property was not worth what we paid for. I would not nor the group recommend this property at all.
Needs good maintenance this is a quiet place to stay close to town and beaches housekeeping is poor but we used this place only for sleep because culebra has nice places tosee
