Enjoy nature in the privacy of a beachfront five (5.5) acres estate surrounded by a natural sub-tropical forest, manicured grounds dotted with fruit trees and flowers.

A perfect place to disconnect. The 'Casita Bubi' cottage is being renovated top to bottom.

It also features a lounge area with a sofa bed and home library. Enjoy nature from your own outdoor shower and enjoy sunsets from your own deck. Perfect for nature walk's and bird watching. Great for swimming, snorkeling, sailing & diving. Your Host's Susie and Jacinto will assist you in anyway possible to make this the perfect vacation you deserve.......
Casita Bubi a beachfront in a sub-tropical forest: Our Casita offers you the combination of a beach front property in a 5.5 acres of a natural sub-tropical forest, also surrounded by a natural reserve salt pond with different wild life species. A walking by the forest and then having a nice beach swimming or snorkeling is a great and nature relaxing experience in Casa Yaboa. All in the same place.
At night, you will feel the ocean surf, the cool ocean breeze, the natural-atmosphere silent and see one of the most beautiful and luminous stars sky. In full moon nights, is amazing.
This was a GREAT vacation rental. My partner and I love to feel like we can get away from the crowds, but still have some access to the town/civilization, and this was the perfect location. We weren't expecting much for snorkeling on the property, and were delighted to find some great snorkeling and beach-combing (note: you have to swim out a little ways, but the owner can point you in the right direction). Everything was clean and in working order in the rental, and wonderfully quiet; you can't beat falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. We were also able to see the stars and the Milky Way from this location, which was a nice surprise.
The owner was very nice and accommodating, and fantastic to work with, answering all our questions and giving us advice for places to visit around the island.
The only consideration for us next time regarding this location was the heat. There are ceiling fans and the nightly temperature is generally pleasant, but the midday heat from about 1 to 4pm was unbearable, and the ceiling fans didn't do much. I will admit I'm somewhat of a polar bear and not used to the humidity, and if we had to do it again, we'd make sure we were in the ocean during those times and not resting in the casita.
Overall, I would highly recommend this location to the adventurous couple that wants to get away and enjoy the quieter side of island life.
This was our first trip to Culebra. We stayed at Casa Yaboa (Casa Bubi) for seven nights and enjoyed it very much. The cabin is located on a wonderfully secluded, property. Since the island is so small it is a short driving distance from the cottage to other beautiful secluded beaches. We loved the open layout of the cabin and especially the open windows in the front of the cabin facing the water. The windows are open but screened which allows you to hear the sounds of the forest around you. When it rained we could feel and hear the rain surrounding us. We spent our mornings sitting in the chairs by the window drinking our coffee and looking at the beautiful view of the bay. The outside shower was another very special feature of this cabin. Overall the cabin is well furnished and has ceiling fans in every room. We also appreciated the quality Wi-if. We had the beach and bay in front of the property to ourselves and the water was calm and the temperature perfect.
Susie and Jacinto were very attentive and helped us out with anything we needed while we were there. They provided kayaks and snorkel gear. We really enjoyed the visits from the cats on the property.
We had a blast driving around the island in the morning and then heading into town for lunch and then back to the cabin for a long, peaceful nap. We always ended the day with a long swim while the sun was setting. If you're looking for a place to recharge and relax then this is the place for you!
We had the most amazing time on our trip to Culebra. Casa Yaboa was absolutely breathtaking and Susie and Jacinto's natural hospitality made for such a truly relaxing getaway. My girlfriend and I stayed in the Casita Bubi which was perfect. We woke up to the beautiful sounds of tropical birds with gorgeous views of Dakiti Reef from our bed. Anything we could think of that we needed was either available on the property or they knew exactly how to steer us to it on the island. We also had a truly magnificent culinary experience at Susie's Restaurant. This was a special trip that will never be forgotten. Casa Yaboa comes with the highest recommendation!
What a great gem we found! You must stay at least 3 nights to get the full relaxation effect. The hosts couldn't be nicer or more helpful as well as being laid back & gracious! This was a last minute get a way with our 2 adult children so being on the beach with snorkels, beach chairs, towels, kayaks and the like being provided -- was the best! The outside shower is awesome! Wi-fi super convenient as well. We hope to come back some day!! thanks Suzie & Juacinto.
PS food at "Suzies" restaurant was delicious as well!
Our one week snorkeling vacation was perfect, largely because we stayed at Casa Yaboa. Casita comes complete with Susie and Jacinto, who serve as hosts, neighbors, guides and friends.
The location was great. I'd describe the setting as remote except everything on Culebra is within five miles. Jeep required. We snorkeled at a different beach every day, spent evenings in town for dinner/drinks and then headed "home" for college hoops on DirectTV. The wide open view over Ensenada Honda at the foot of the bed is more special because, if you wish, you're steps from being IN the scene. A great value for those who don't seek pampering on vacation.
We spent this past week in Casita Bubi, one of the two for rent by Jacinto and Suzie of Casa Yaboa, and it was simply wonderful, we and loved every minute of our week. We hesitate to share this only because it was so special it’s the sort of thing you want to keep a secret. The cottage is cozy, and has all of the basics, plus some artsy charm and a few quirky touches. There were cool breezes from three sides and ceiling fans everywhere – never did the words AC come to mind. The view from the bedroom alone is worth the stay. The house seems best suited for 2-3 people, but with some creative sleeping arrangements we had no problem fitting in our two older teens (15 and 19) in the living area.
The property is situated on a secluded bay, with access to kayaks, snorkel gear, and lots of shady options for lounging with a book. Mosquito Bay seems an odd choice of names – with the constant cool breeze, we saw few if any. There are occasional turtles, live reef within swimming distance, and a sunset as nice as anywhere on the island.
They have only been renting this place out for 6 months now, but it’s obvious from the little touches they are adding to the landscape that it will continue to become even more special. We will be back for sure, and wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone looking for an adventure somewhere different.
We are located off the Road #250 to Zoni, at Punta del Viento, Lot #3, Sector Las Vacas on the Island of Culebra. We feature beautiful beaches perfect for snorkeling, diving, sailing, kayaking, fishing or simply beach combing. Casa Yaboa is a 5.5 acres beachfront property surrounded by a natural sub-tropical forest, that give great and amazing day and nights view. Casa Yaboa offers a quiet, relaxing and natural environment.
