Hilary Vartanian purchased this house in 2004
This house is one of a kind on a peaceful, protected part of the island. The house has always drawn great people and our repeat renters are a testament to the comfort and beauty of the island and our home.
a large property with neighbors few and far between, a friendly helpful caretaker and a home that has every amenity needed for a relaxing beach getaway.
This was a rare vacation with my grown children and we had a wonderful relaxing time. It was also perfect that my husband and I could go to sleep early in the beautiful casita above the main house while the kids could stay up and watch movies. There was a varied and wonderful collection of books and films as well. The best part of the stay was being surrounded by nature and having a spectacular view! The drive up to the house is an adventure, and a four wheel drive sturdy vehicle is required. We rented from Carlos car rental. The golf carts you see puttering around the island are not appropriate for this location!
we would love to come back here!
We had a great five days at Hilary's vacation home on Culebra. We were greeted at the airport and led to a wonderful home at the top of a lane. Our teenage daughter and a girfriend stayed in the casita next to the house and my husband and I enjoyed the well-appointed vacation home that has the amenities of home, but none of the pressures of it. Great view! We enjoyed the restaurants, beaches, and snorkeling of Culebra and hope to return someday. Thank you, Hilary!
We are a family of 5 (3 smaller children) and we loved the house. It is private, secluded and quiet. At the end of it's own dirt road you feel alone in the hills. The views are very nice and the breeze fairly constant. The house cross-ventilates beautifully. It is elegant, late-modern in style, simple and clean. We loved it. We used the snorkel gear for morning snorkels and the boogy boards for riding waves in the afternoon. Highly recommend.
My husband & I stayed in this house for two weeks. The very private house was equipped with everything you need for a quiet, relaxing time on Culebra. The deck, with hammock, table, chairs and grill was great place to relax at end of day enjoying the breeze and distant view of harbor.
The living area has chairs and 2 couches with plenty of room to relax enjoying reading with some of the expansive collection of books and DVD's. Also many games if you have a family group. Jessie, the caretaker was available by phone if you have questions. Hilary, the owner was very helpful with info sheet before our arrival. This was 2nd trip to Culebra. We hope to return again. Thank you!
We had a fantastic time at Casa Estrella. We were there from 7/14/15 to 7/22/15. The weather was perfect.
The house was exactly how it was described. Very open, airy, and comfortable. Great views of the harbor. Close to beaches with 4 wheel drive. The supporting information that Hilary provides makes the complete journey getting there and setting up house easy. I highly recommend this house. I will be back!
Thank you Hilary, Andy and Alex.

Having been the guest at Casa Estrella previously, it was wonderful sharing this comfortable cottage with our family as Culebra is the perfect escape for those who long for relaxing days at the beach, snorkeling with the island turtles and stingrays and enjoying the beauty of this small island. Casa Estrella is a cozy home that is not only well appointed for vacation excursions, but for downtime as it houses a wonderful collection of books on life in Puerto Rico and summertime reading selections, as well as a stocked set of DVDs and music for relaxing evenings for pretty evenings overlooking the bay. The owner's tips for adventure and restaurants were also spot on. Having just returned a few days ago, we're already longing for our vacation days at Casa Estrella. Maybe we'll come back again soon as third time may be just as much of a charm as this spot!
