“A Perfect Fit for us!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

What an enormous VALUE! Clean and comfortable with lots of added benefits. Molly picked us up at the airport and gave us a quick tour of the town. She gave us great tips on the snorkelling spots. By tips I mean drove us to the spot we need to get on the trail. Local knowledge readily shared. She got in the water and showed us the Turtles one morning. The Casita Tropical has fruit trees on the propoerty. We loved the fresh Star fruit and Mangoes. It is awesome to have a personable hostess. Big Shout out to Molly! I would recommend this as a place to stay and base for a beach/snorkel trip.

This review is long overdue, sorry Molly! Culebra is a beautiful island and there's no better way to actually experience the island then being apart of it. Casita Tropical is located in a residential area, making you feel right at home after a great day at the beach. Accommodations are quaint and tidy. My husband and I stayed in the main house and in the small essential and they both had everything we needed; t.v., toaster oven, sink, dishes, fridge, ac, etc. (don't forget to keep the doors closed to keep the bugs out). We had great neighbors who we made friends with, making our experience so much more meaningful. Molly is great, she gives you great advice on where to go and what to see, and she'll even save you money, (no need for tours when you have Molly's keen insight). Do prepare to get up early, roosters are on time every morning. Use your white noise machine, it does help a somewhat. You will need transportation to get around, I don't think it's necessary to rent a jeep, I say stick with the golf cart.
All in all Culebra is fantastic, my favorite of our Puerto Rico visit.
Molly thanks for everything! You were like the mom we didn't have while on vacation:)

Great place to stay in Culebra. Within 10 minutes of being there, we were wishing we had planned more than 2 days there. Molly is a super host full of tons of information of where to go and the best snorkeling. She took us out snorkeling in the morning and showed us were to find the sea turtles. There is equipment she will let you borrow for the beach. The property itself is clean, well kept, very close to the airport and in a good central spot to go out to the different beaches. All around great stay and very reasonable! Thanks Molly, hopefully we make it out again!

Casita Tropical, the beautiful stay in Culebra. Molly is a wonderful host and a great lady, we got to stay with her for two day's and wish we had more. She was so very nice and very helpful, suggested where to snorkel and let us use her equipment as it was our first time. Her place was very clean and I have no doubt in my mind that we will be returning to see her. Miss her already. Her place is located in a central location, close to Airport and not far from the beach. She can make suggestions on places to go and places to eat, but most of all she makes your stay so grand that you will want to go back. Remember Molly!!! Thanks for a fantastic vacation.

Excellent location, extremely convenient to Flamenco Beach and the center (Port) of Cullebra Casita Tropical offers the most authentic island experience you could ever dream of, you will come away feeling revitalized, re-energized and basically refreshed.
Molly was outstanding as a host and even took my family on a private snorkel trip (Sea Turtles, Sting Rays, etc..) at no extra cost. The accommodations are fairly simple as is the entire island. We rented a golf cart, (4 seats) which was perfect for fumbling around the island. We are already planning next years trip and the choice is unanimous "Casita Tropical"! We wouldn't stay anyplace else.

Room Tip: The ferry is around an hour trip and was not as reliable as the air transport. We did one way on eac...

We had the BEST stay in Culebra at Casita Tropical - just wish it could have been longer than the two days we allotted. Molly is a wonderful hostess and provided the best service that made our trip so much easier. She purchased our ferry tickets and mailed them to our home in advance, which was a huge perk, considering the long lines for the ferry (some people in line we chatted with were unable to get to Culebra because they didn't get their tickets early enough, which is likely why you'll read a lot of ferry horror stories... but it was very easy for us with Molly's help). She also picked us up in her golf cart right at the dock and gave us a little tour of town, then took us to Playa Flamenco, which is hands-down the most beautiful beach I have ever experienced. The next day, she offered to take us for an early-morning snorkel to a great spot to see sea turtles. I lost count of how many we saw - perhaps up to 10! The value of this alone was worth the stay. We also loved the room... felt super laid back. You share a screened in patio with kitchenette with some neighbors. Ours were great and we enjoyed chatting with them. Room was super clean and had everything we needed - including a mini-fridge which came in handy as we got some groceries. We had dinner at the Dinghy Dock which had the best seafood and drinks at great prices. We totally fell in love with Culebra, and Molly was a huge part of that. If you're hoping to get to Culebra, do yourself a favor and make it easy - stay at this darling guesthouse! PS - Also loved her cute dog Sophie!!!

I read so many reviews on where to stay in Culebra! Don't waste your time! Casita Tropical is the place! I'm beyond happy I picked Casita Tropical! It had everything we needed and Molly made sure we had an amazing time. I would, without a doubt, stay here again!

My husband and I stayed 5 nights. Before our vacation even started, Molly helped us in a timely manner with every question we had. Once arriving in Culebra, she was the perfect host. Our first morning there, Molly took us snorkeling and we were able to see some sea turtles, best experience ever! She told us about other great spots to explore on the island, as well as some delicious restaurants. Our last night, Molly made dinner for all the guest and we had a great time sitting back enjoying the dinner and company. Even better, she was sweet enough to even cater to me, a vegetarian. She made the most delicious vegetable lasagna!

We stayed in the small efficiency which was perfect for us. Our room had a king size bed, small fridge, toaster oven, tv, and A/C. We shared a screened in patio with the guest next door, who were awesome. The patio had a microwave, dishes, sink, hammock, tables, and chairs. We really had everything we needed staying at Casita Tropical, and if we needed anything, Molly would lend it to us! The atmosphere of Casita Tropical was fun, relaxing, and laid back...which also describes the whole island.
