Overview

Culebra Villa Rental Photos and Description

Seven well-equipped one and two bedroom villas with dock space

The Hostal Casa Culebra is designed as a unique getaway for those looking to escape from it all and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the island of Culebra. It is unlike the traditional hostel that you find in Europe and other countries around the world as it is meant for independent families, couples and singles that are looking for alternative lodging for their vacations. The HCC offers privacy and high quality in service and amenities. Our staff ensures the villas are clean and comfortable for your arrival, but do not provide the day-to-day services of a traditional hotel (turnover of rooms, room service, etc). The communal outdoor spaces are for guests to enjoy the outdoors and make memories with loved ones.

While our villas are close to everything, it is in a residential area and on the water. You will find the place to be very peaceful and relaxing. This is what our return guests have grown to love and expect and we strive to keep it this way for the enjoyment of all. If this is appealing to you, don't wait any longer to book with us! Holiday weekends, and summer months book up fast. For a more economical vacation, consider traveling during the low season. You get the best prices, less crowds and the same gorgeous weather September - December.

We recommend booking a golf cart or jeep to get to the beaches and restaurants which are minutes away. The Hostal Casa Culebra has docks available for rent for each villa which you will not find anywhere else in Culebra.

Hostal Casa Culebra welcomes everyone that enjoys nature and appreciates a tranquil, but fun environment. Please, take a moment to read through the Hostal Casa Culebra Policies & Guidelines before you arrive. You will have a better understanding of what we expect of our guests and what you can expect of us! Book your reservation today at hostalcasaculebra.com

HOSTAL CASA CULEBRA POLICIES & GUIDELINES

Reservation Process: Your villa is considered reserved once Hostal Casa Culebra (HCC) has collected required information and a 50% deposit of the total.

Management: We do not have staff on the premises 24 hours a day, like a typical hotel, but you can always reach us at 787-742-0762. We will get back to you as soon as possible. It is best to get special requests in early in the day, so we can plan accordingly with staff.

Emergencies: We want you to feel comfortable during your stay, so if there is something that requires managements attention, do not hesitate to call us at 787-742-0762. For health or safety emergencies, please call the phone numbers posted in your villa. Contact us or have another guest contact us as soon as possible to notify us of any situations.

Security: The Hostal Casa Culebra property and it's dock is under 24 hour surveillance for your safety. Our guests security is of the utmost importance.

Check in: Check-in time is at 3:00 PM. If your arrival time differs, please notify management. We may be able to store your bags until check-in time or if your villa is ready, allow for early entry. These exceptions must be discussed before-hand with management.

Check out: Check-out time is at 11:00 AM. Any arrangement for late departure must be requested on the day before and is subject to availability. Prompt check out is essential to allow time for our housekeeping staff to prepare the unit for the next guest.

Keys: Please return the keys to the manager’s office or leave them locked in your villa upon departure. You will be charged $45.00 for lost keys. If you decide to extend your stay, please contact us and we will be happy to accommodate your request, based on availability.

Maximum Occupancy: Strict fire code determines the occupancy level of each unit. That maximum allowance is stated on our villa website pages and cannot be exceeded at any time. In case the guest misrepresents the number of people in the group, the guest who made the reservation will be charged an additional $100 per extra guest for every night of the reservation regardless of how many nights the extra guest stayed.

Pets: While we love furry friends, no pets are permitted on the premises.

Noise: Loud music, excessively loud conversations or shouting are not accepted. It is important to us that all of our guests enjoy the tranquil environment promised at the HCC.

Visitors: The facilities at the Hostal Casa Culebra are for the exclusive use of guests only. We realize that our guests often travel to Culebra with friends that choose to find other accommodations. The HCC is happy to welcome guest of guests for up to two hours provided that management has been notified beforehand. Your security is our priority, therefore everyone on the premises must be identifiable. You are responsible for relaying house rules to your guests and will be held liable for your guests behavior and any damaged caused.

Being Green: Culebra being a small island has limited resources. Everyone who sets foot on this island is either participating in keeping Culebra beautiful or damaging it's fragile eco-system. Please, turn off the unit air conditioners when you leave your villa for the day. Our staff is authorized to enter your villa and turn it off during your absence. There are recycling bins near the HCC entrance. Please, consider helping minimize your footprint by separating your plastic, aluminum and paper trash from food trash. The landfill here is full and we cannot sustain the trash brought over from the big island. If you brought it here on your boat, consider taking it back. Fresh water is imported into Culebra and should also be used consciously. We and future generation thank you for being mindful.

Medical: . There is no hospital or pharmacy on Culebra, only a diagnostic and treatment center. Guests must be sure to bring all necessary prescription medication with them.

Dock: Non-guests are not permitted to dock their boats during their visit (includes private dock and moorings) If you are getting picked up by a water taxi, the boat may be tied down for a maximum of 15 minutes for embarkation/ disembarkation as long as the administration has been notified at least 24 hours beforehand. We are protecting delaying arriving guests who have reserved dock space. If you are coming by private boat, please read our Dock Guidelines here: http://hostalcasaculebra.com/dock

Our goal is to spread the word further so that like-minded travelers can experience all that Culebra and the Hostal Casa Culebra have to offer. Let us know how we can help make your trip memorable.

Why Jessica & David chose Culebra

We chose to manage the Hostal Casa Culebra in March of 2016 because it is a well-loved space that attracts the kind of people we enjoy surrounding ourselves with. The tranquil environment and the waterfront aspect keeps us close to nature. Our hope is that other like-minded travelers will think of the Hostal as their home in Culebra.

What makes this villa unique

We welcome independent travelers, boaters, lovers, families, explorers and seekers of nature. Come enjoy a private, tranquil home away from home. We are minutes away from the world's best beaches. Dock your private boat steps away from your villa.

Hostal Casa Culebra is made up of seven well-equipped one and two bedroom villas. Our property has several communal spaces, including a large gazebo with an outdoor kitchen where guests can prepare their favorite meals on the shore of Ensenada Honda.

This apartment was close to town, but not in town and close to the airport. It was quiet, beautiful view of the marina. The apartment was spacious and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was very well equipped with the necessary appliances and utensils.

The place was very neat and tidy. The cleaning lady was an absolute sweetheart. We were there a week and midweek, she gave us a fresh set of linens! They have a common outdoor area where you could barbecue and lounge around. They also had a lot of seating areas.

Melissa, the property manager was very nice and helpful. It was a very pleasant stay and a place where you can return again and again.

We ate at Mamacita's, El Eden, food trucks had delicious food, especially at Flamenco Beach. Zoni Beach, Flamenco and Playa Brava are wonderful beaches. You hike to Playa Brava about a mile and it opens up to this most beautiful deserted beach.
