Culebra Pueblo House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 baths, equipped kitchen, fully a/c, residential community, views!

This residence offers stunning views of Ensenada Honda Bay and is located in La Romana, a centrally located community of Culebra. The house has 2 levels, owners occupy the upper level and the lower level is available for short and long term rental.

La Romana A9 has a fully equipped kitchen. You will be nice and cool anytime as there are A/Cs in both rooms and in the living/dinning area and kitchen. Or open the windows and enjoy the cool breeze.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, private bath, 32 inch TV with cable system, a/c and a spectacular view of the Ensenada Honda Bay both from the bedroom and bathroom windows.

Equipped with WiFi.

The second bedroom has a full/twin bunk bed, a/c and a spacious closet. Both bathrooms have hot water and 110 volts.

The kitchen is fully equipped for those days or nights you just want to cook at home. It includes refrigerator/ freezer, electric stove/oven, microwave oven, blender, toaster, espresso and cappuccino maker, cookware, cooking utensils, wine and champagne glasses.

Enjoy your meals while staring out the window towards Ensenada Honda Bay. A second 32 inch flat panel TV with cable service is available in the living/dinning area for your enjoyment.

The wood deck is where you'll enjoy sunrises and sunsets, relaxing at the lounge chairs watching boats come and go into town. Towards your left you can enjoy counting the sail boats docked at Dakiti sound and at your right you'll see the neighboring island of Vieques.

Beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, beach bag, boogie board and beach towels are included, all you need to bring is yourself and your friends and family.

We recommend renting a golf car or a jeep from one of the four car rentals on the island. You can also use taxis or publicos, they can take you to the the beautiful beaches or to downtown Dewey for an evening of dinner for $3 per person.

Visit Culebra and do as much or as little as you desire. Come enjoy the pristine beaches, go diving, snorkeling, fishing, board paddleling, kayaking, bicycling or just relax and enjoy turtle and bird watching.

A boat trip to Culebrita's Tortuga Beach described as 'perfection of sand, sea and sky' can be booked with boat taxis. Culebrita also has the oldest light house in the Caribbean.

The Island itself has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and is home to Flamenco Beach, considered the second most beautiful beach by Discover Channel and by far the most popular beach in Culebra. The people of Culebra are friendlly as Culebra is a very safe and happy place.

The magic island paradise you have dreamed about is waiting for you.

The key to La Romana A9 is obtained from Alfonso Torres or Sylvia Lopez, owners 787-383-7517. We can pick you up at the airport or ferry terminal and drive you to your home away from home!

A gem of a place!

  • 5 of 5

LaRomana A9 is an excellent place. The apartment is exactly as it looks in the pictures -- super clean, nicely decorated with comfy furniture, and very well supplied. The location is perfect to visit anything in Culebra. The super relaxing deck has beautiful views. Sylvia and Alfonso were fantastic -- warm and welcoming and super informative. They live in the top floor of the house, and seemed happy to answer any questions or concerns. Will definitely return!

Sylvia & Alfonso are the best!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented a lot of houses or apartments around the Caribbean and have never experienced the phenomenal hospitality that we did from Sylvia and Alfonso!! They are super kind and know everything there is to know about their beautiful little island. They live upstairs but respect your privacy and are there for you if you have any questions. The apartment is super nice and clean and has everything you could possibly need!! The big deck is very nice and has a nice view too!! Thanks for everything!! Highly recommend staying here when you come to Culebra.

What a find!

  • 4 of 5

Sylvia and Alfonso were excellent hosts who really paid attention to detail. The house, located minutes from the airport was spotlessly cleaned and well appointed. The master bedroom hadaqueen sized bed, TVwith satellite and full bathroom. The second bedroom has a twin over full bunk bed. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal (except the food) including a small espresso machine. There are beach towels, beach chairs, a boogie board and other each goodies located in the second bedroom. A beautiful deck addstothe space.

I'd recommend renting a car or a golf cart to get back and forth across town. A local market has what you need to get you started with meals. Fresh fruits and vegetables were in short supply and food costs are slightly higher than on the main island. However, restaurants start at $12 a plate and only go up, so it is more economical to cook a few meals and pack a few lunches.

A laundromat is just down the hill if you need to wash clothes, expect $2 for a wash and $2 to dry. The only drawback is no wi-fi access. Phone service on some U.S. carriers was also limited with no data. If you must be plugged in, this may not meet your needs. There is a steep flight of stairs taking you to the apartment. It was no trouble for us, but may be a barrier for those who are unable to manage stairs easily.

Overall we had an outstanding experience. We appreciate all that Alfonso and Sylvia did for us, including recognizing our son's birthday. They were more than gracious hosts.

Excellent accomodations and perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two daughters and I completely lucked out and found this rental for a vacation during Holy Week, the busiest tourist week for Culebra. The house was extremely clean and had everything possible that we could need, from a fully-equipped kitchen to everything you need for the beach, including chairs, coolers, Boogie board, and a smashball set. The house, and the deck, were so comfortable that the earliest time we ever left the house was near noon (despite having perfect weather and amazing Culebra beaches all week!). Also, the owners are incredible and wonderful hosts, and very responsive to inquiries and questions (they put us to shame as we've been renting our mountain condo on vrbo for 11 years!). Knowing it would be busy, Sylvia purchased and mailed ferry tickets to us and they provided us with the insider tips on where to go and eat. I highly recommend staying at La Romana (grudgingly though because it feels like one of those best-kept secrets that you hate to share!).
