Culebra House Rental Photos and Description

2 BRs, 1 bath, sleeps 4, full kitchen, in/outdoor showers, wash machine, carport

Enjoy wide-open water views and sip a cool drink on Casa SuMarco's huge wrap-around deck overlooking one of the most beautiful bays in the entire Caribbean. Only a few hundred feet from the water's edge and cooled by tropical breezes, this comfortable 2-bedroom house sleeps up to 4 people, perfect for a family or couples. Enjoy the privacy of having your own house and landscaped grounds in a small, safe and friendly neighborhood on the bay.

Both bedrooms are air-conditioned, all other rooms have ceiling fans. Prepare your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen or sample island cooking at Culebra's unique variety of restaurants. Casa SuMarco has a washing machine, dvd/flat screen tv with a varied movie library, cd/ipod stereo, outdoor gas grill, broadband internet access with wifi & ethernet, indoor & outdoor showers. Your private parking area is right at the front gate in our own outdoor car-port. The spacious grounds have flowering shrubs and palm trees. A perfect island getaway.

Our secret island paradise. Shhh, don't tell . . .: Culebra is among the 'Best Secret Islands on Earth' (Travel & Leisure, 2010), has one of the '6 Caribbean Beaches to See Before You Die' (New York Times, 2011), and nearby Flamenco Beach is 'One of the Top 10 in the World' (Travel Channel, 2010). Flamenco Beach is just 6 minutes from Casa SuMarco by car or scooter. Its central location on the island is convenient to all restaurants, shops, town, ferry and airport. A few friendly watering holes in town have live music or karaoke on some nights. Restaurants range from simple island cooking to elegant gourmet dining. Small local markets and unique island gift shops provide for all your needs. A weekly open-air produce market offers a cornucopian array of fresh fruit & vegetables.

All you need are flipflops and sunblock: Nature is the local attraction on Culebra. Endless white sandy beaches dot the island. Many are within a few minutes' ride from the house. Deserted beaches, beautiful reefs, fabulous snorkeling and diving. No malls, resorts or golf courses. No passport or fancy clothes required. English is spoken everywhere. To get the most from your visit, renting a car will give you the best mobility and opportunity to explore and experience all aspects of the island.

Kick back, relax: Come for the simplicity and beauty. Enjoy snorkeling the colorful reefs, scuba diving, nature walks, photography, biking, kayaking, fishing and boating. Hiking, observing hawksbill or leatherback turtles nesting and hatching in spring and birdwatching in the extensive Culebra Wildlife Refuge are favorite activities for nature lovers.

Bring your sunblock, camera, a good book . . . and relax.

My husband and I retired from book publishing in New York. We love the slower pace, the simple life, and the natural beauty of Culebra.

Susan Lusk purchased this house in 2004

We visited a few different islands in the Caribbean and whenever we asked about Culebra, we got the same answer: 'Oh no, you don't want to go to Culebra— there's nothing there.' That was exactly what we were looking for and it was perfect! Ten years later, it still is.

Simplicity of lifestyle, genuinely nice people, beautiful surroundings, tropical weather.

Treasure in Paradise

  • Submitted: Mar 7, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
My husband and I enjoyed 10 days staying at Casa SuMarco with my mom & dad. It was my parents second visit, and they were excited about sharing this lovely retreat with us. We felt immediately at home in Susan's charming Carribean house. The location, views and breezes were incredible. The house comes with everything you will need to have a great time at the beautiful beaches. My husband especially enjoyed the hammock, and my Dad and I spend every morning on the deck with our books and coffee. The neighborhood was quiet with the exception of an occasional canine chorus in the evening and a few roosters who needed their time zone adjusted. We made friends with a neighbor who was restoring an old boat, and found the people of Culebra to be very friendly overall. There is an unhurried, low-key and very tranquil feeling to this place and we all rested well and returned to our lives recharged and determined to return. Now I am making plans to bring my own daughter to stay at Casa SuMarco.
Thank you Susan for your generosity in sharing your lovely home with others!

Idyllic place

  • Submitted: Mar 7, 2014

House is fantastic. What a view!!.
We came from a beachfront house on Vieques to your place. I was sad about leaving the beachfront thinking that leaving the water would be a bummer. I was wrong.
This is our first trip to the Caribbean with Culebra and the view from your place being everything I expected of a laid back Caribbean island.
The only drawback is the darn full moon, the stars under a dark sky must be amazing.
Thanks for offering such an idyllic place.

Missing Culebra!

  • Submitted: Jan 23, 2014
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We are back in Germany. It is cold and rainy and we are missing Culebra. We had a great time there. Your house is very nice and the great view is beautiful. Thank you for your good recomandations. We had good snorkeling and good dinners in Zaco's Taco's, Bahia Marina and Susie's. It tasted very good -- my wife and daughter had a big lobster.
So, this was not the last time we stay on Culebra!

Casa SuMarco is in a small, friendly and safe neighborhood overlooking Culebra's main bay, Ensenada Honda, considered by many to be the most beautiful bay in the Caribbean. The sunrise-to-sunset panoramic view is breathtaking. We're convenient to all the great beaches, to town, restaurants and shops, markets, the airport and ferry. By car or scooter it's about 6 minutes to Flamenco Beach, 12 minutes to Zoni Beach, 7 minutes to the center of town and the ferry dock.
