My husband and I were born and raised in Puerto Rico. We are retired and love to travel around the world. We travel abroad at least once a year. We have been blessed with a lovely family, that lives near us. My husband plays golf and enjoys deep sea fishing. The rest of the family practice all sorts of water sports.

Why Ana Rita Santaella chose Culebra

We have been visiting Culebra island for more than 50 years and own a house next door to Mi Casita. We love the beauty of the island and its beaches, the sun and the peaceful afternoons on our deck on the ocean front. Our children and grandchildren spend their summer vacations with us and love going to the beach, snorkling, kayaking and paddleboarding.

What makes this house unique

Mi Casita is located in Ensenada Honda Bay overlooking the ocean in Dewey, Culebra's town center. It is walking distance to restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, grocerie stores, bakeries, airport and ferry peer. Taxis to Flamenco Beach pass by the house entrance regularly or guests can rent a car or golf cart to drive around the island. Culebra's Flamenco and Zoní beaches are among the most beautiful in the world. Other beaches like Tamarindo, Carlos Rosario and Mango are rich in coral and marine life excelent for diving and snorkling.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

We stay there for 4 days and we love it. The house was really clean and organize and had everything we need for the weekend.

The owner was really helpful. I call her couple of times the first day to find the house ( making sure we were in the right one) and to tell her a problem with one of the lockers we couldn't open. She fix it in less than 20 min!!!! The hamymans were exceptional with us!

I will stay again for sure in this house!!!

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a gem. We loved the coziness and the closeness to everything. Ms. Santaella thought about every detail: even beach umbrella and chairs. The breeze never stopped; and it was a very sunny July weekend. Loved it!!

Great little place in town

  • 5 of 5

We rented Mi Casita for a month with a few of our close friends/co-workers and could not have enjoyed our stay more. My wife and I have stayed on Culebra a few times and are familiar with the island and it's quirky charm. The house's location right on the bay is great. It is minutes walk from the downtown shopping/restaurant area and makes for a very convenient base to explore the rest of the island. As a few other reviewers have stated, it is quite close to the road and some traffic noise but this was not an issue for us. The house is clean and well kept and the owner is quick to respond to calls/texts with any questions or concerns you may have. Our party of 6 was fine in the accommodations although one bathroom may have been a bit of a squeeze for a group not as close as ours. This is a great little house right in town on a fun, laid back island that I will be visiting as often as I can.

Lovely and Cozy House on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

My friend, our 4 children and I had a wonderful stay at this comfortable casita. The house is very accessible and taxi to go to the beach passes right by the house. It is walking distance to all the restaurants, ferry, etc. However, we rented a jeep because it was 6 of us and one way to go to the beach or grocery stores costs $3. Was definitely more economical and comfortable to rent a jeep for $75 a day that fit us all. If we weren't traveling with children under age 12 we would've rented a golf cart. It is nicely decorated and has good air conditioning. I love that the house is on the bay and has a beautiful view. My favorite part was waking up before everyone, sneaking to the deck and reading my book while sipping coffee with beautiful views of the bay. The picture the owner has posted is of the back of the house but the front of the house is much more attractive. I will be recommending this place to friends and if I ever go back to Culebra, I will rent this property again. The owner was so easy to work with. Thank you Ana Rita! A lovely time was had by all!

Great Spot In the City

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Culebra. This little house is adorable and sits very near the city. It is convenient for people who are traveling on a budget or want to stay near facilities without a car. The house was older, but well kept and clean. The dock is fantastic and it's fun to watch the boats. The owner was extremely helpful and easy to work with. She was immediately available on her mobile and a nice communicator. She even purchased a pack and play for our baby, which was unexpected and very much appreciated. I would definitely recommend the spot for anybody who is interested in being in the center of the action. I gave it four stars only because of the street noise. It's not a quiet house because it is near the main street which is very busy and noisy. It was no problem for us, but if you're looking for a quiet sanctuary, this place isn't it. However, it is perfect for those who want to be in the middle of everything, soak up the culture and have convenient access to restaurants and bars.

superb cottage on the bay a highlight of our trip to Culebra

  • 5 of 5

I spoke with the owner, Ana Rita, a few times before we arrived at Mi Casita and was captivated by her friendliness and helpful nature. This delightfully furnished 2 bedroom house is an easy 4 blocks walk from the ferry dock, excellent restaurants, a bakery, grocery and other shops, including snorkeling gear, and a water taxi. Overlooking Ensenada Honda, we watched the sunrise, boats, birds, evening stars and the last morning, 2 large iguanas on the dock in front of the deck. Ana Rita provides a cooler and 2 large beach mats which we took on our day trip to Culebrita. When I apologized for calling a few times with questions, she said, not to worry, she was at my beck and call. I could not have asked for a better hostess. We rented a golf cart for the 6 adults in my family, which we parked on a pad inside the locked gate, and we went all over Culebra to various beaches for snorkeling, hiking, sunsets and sightseeing. We could easily have stayed longer than our allotted time, as we were so happy at Mi Casita. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and we're hoping to go back!
