About Susan Lusk
My husband and I retired from book publishing in New York, where we still live most of the year. We love the slower pace, simplicity, and natural beauty of Culebra — it's the perfect antidote to city life.
Susan Lusk purchased this House in 2004
Why Susan Lusk chose Culebra Pueblo
We visited a few different islands in the Caribbean and whenever we asked about Culebra, we got the same answer: 'Oh no, you don't want to go to Culebra — there's nothing there.' That was exactly what we were looking for and it was perfect! Eighteen years later, it still is.
What makes this House unique
Simplicity of lifestyle, genuinely nice people, beautiful surroundings, safe island, delicious tropical weather.

We loved our stay at Casa SuMarco. The view is spectacular. The location is ideal. Susan was an excellent communicator, and her house has everything you need! We were so lucky to stay at such a sweet home. We spent our honeymoon in Culebra and wanted nothing more than to take it easy, snorkel and lay around and read. It was such a nice spot to come home to at the end of a hot day at the beach. When you fly, you can't bring everything you would need for a good day at the beach. No worries! Susan has everything you need. My first trip to Culebra was spoiled by bad weather, not this time. Thank you so much Susan. We desperately needed time to slow down and we found just what we needed at your home.
So glad you came back after a rainy first time to Culebra! It's a great setting to unwind and get onto 'island time' for a bit. And I'm so pleased our home helped make your honeymoon memorable. Congratultions!
Memorable stay in Culebra
We had a fantastic stay at Casa SuMarco. The place was perfect for the four of us. The place was exceptionally clean and well maintained. We spent a lot of time on the back with a lovely breeze and beautiful view. We explored most of the beaches in Culebra and really enjoyed snorkeling in Tamarindo beach. We even witnessed an elusive manatee rearly seen in this area. We also saw many turtles, stingrays and one barracuda among other tropical fish. We explored many restaurants. Our favourites were the food truck within walking distance from the house, Susies restaurant and Mamacitas in Dewey and we also enjoyed the pastries and fresh bread from Pandeli, the local bakery in town. Thanks for letting us stay at your lovely place, we hope to visit Culebra soon again.
Thank you! It's a pleasure to hear when people enjoy their stay as much as you did. Our wraparound deck is the perfect place for serious relaxation with a fabulous view. And congrats on a manatee sighting!! That's special -- in my 17 years there I have yet to see one.
Hope you come back again, you're always welcome at Casa SuMarco!
It's so good that we came back!
Just returned to Casa SuMarco for the second year, this time for two full weeks. The property is just as advertised. The house has everything you need to be comfortable. But the best part of the house is the deck that wraps around 3 sides of the house. You can have sun or shade, as you wish, and always have a nice view and a wonderful breeze. We love the location, close enough to town for grocery shopping or restaurants, and about halfway between Zoni & Flamenco beaches. D's Garden is right next door, with fresh veggies for sale. The Tiki food truck is just a walk down the hill -- for coffee and a breakfast burrito or grouper fingers or a burger for lunch or dinner. We appreciate having coolers, towels, beach chairs and snorkel gear available. Makes it easy for us to travel with just a carry on!
So happy you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to hosting you again!
Beautiful Culebra home!
Wow! What a spot... If you're trying to find a place to stay while on the island, look no further. This cozy beach house has incredible ocean views (see porch pictures), a great location and has everything you could need for a trip to Culebra (full kitchen, beach chairs, snorkeling gear, etc). If I ever return to Culebra, I will absolutely stay here again!
So glad you had a great vacation-- you're welcome back anytime!
Your house is wonderful, the location, the deck (!), the a/c, the view, the bath towels and beach equipment to use, the paper towels, toilet paper, condiments (those aren’t always included), the deck, water pressure and temperature, the general upkeep, the hammock, did I mention the deck? The instructions and starter package and the communication with you were all excellent. We really enjoyed it.
I could live on that deck.
By the way, I had expected some dog and rooster noise, but there was very little of it. Quieter than I thought and it was Easter week!
I love when people have such a great experience! Thanks so much for sharing it with us and the HomeAway community!
We had a perfectly lovely time on Culebra Jan. 30 to Feb. 5. Casa SuMarco is wonderful. We spent many an early and late hour on the expansive deck watching the bay, stars and the iguana that graced us with its presence. Many more hours were spent on the beautiful beaches: Flamenco, Zoni, Culebrita and Punta Soldado at sunset. All in all, Culebra is a really neat place for vacationers who aren't particularly fond of over-blown and crowded tourist spots.
We're delighted you had such a good time here! Sunset is glorious from all the different vantage points, and it sounds like you covered the island. Come back soon!
Casa SuMarco is in a small, friendly and safe neighborhood overlooking Culebra's main bay, Ensenada Honda, considered by many to be the most beautiful bay in the Caribbean. The sunrise-to-sunset panoramic view is breathtaking. We're convenient to all the great beaches, to town, restaurants and shops, markets, the airport and ferry. By jeep it's about 6 minutes to Flamenco Beach, 12 minutes to Zoni Beach, 7 minutes to the center of town and the ferry dock. Golf cart rentals are very popular because they're fun & inexpensive, but a little slower and no air conditioning :)
