About the property

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 the property.

Well-stocked, great accommodations! We'd love to come back!!

  • 5 of 5

Sylvia and Alfonso are warm, caring, informative hosts. When we arrived, they both greeted us, providing us with water, island and house facts, and, best of all, a tasty lunch that Sylvia baked especially for us. They continued their excellent communication throughout our stay. The porch overlooking the bay comes with two reclining lounge chairs, an ice chest on wheels, and 6 beach chairs. We spent many evenings on the very comfortable couches sending emails with the excellent wifi and watching satellite tv and enjoying the nicely-decorated house. The kitchen is well-stocked with condiments, mixes, and snacks to eat. It has all the utensils you need for any meal, and then some. The bathrooms have all the essentials and more: shampoo, conditioner, lotion, suntan lotion, mosquito repellent, and first aid supplies. The closet in the back bedroom is full of "play" equipment such as snorkeling gear, a body board, ice chest, beach bags, and, most importantly, lots of large, plush beach towels. After you finish snorkeling at the beach and come home covered in sand, you can rinse off using the outdoor shower by the driveway before going up the stairs to the house. They even hooked us up with their friendly neighbors, Milo and Joanne, to help us feel more secure. We look forward to returning to Culebra to snorkel every day at Playa Melones and other beaches and eat out at favorite restaurants such as Krusty Krab and Susie's. Prices on the island are high, so we made breakfast at home every day. Live a little, you're on vacation!

Nice location, very clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at A9. The apartment is clean and nicely decorated. Everything is pretty close on Culebra, but we enjoyed this location in a neighbourhood about 5 minutes from town. What really impressed us was how well stocked it was, from kitchen ware to toiletries, as well as absolutely everything needed to enjoy the beach - chairs, umbrella, cooler, snorkel gear, etc. Great hosts as well! Thanks for the enjoyable stay!

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.
