With one bedroom, an updated kitchen and bathroom, large deck, and plenty of room for a jeep or golf cart; the boathouse is exactly what we needed. My husband an I stayed on Culebra for two nights. Staying in the boathouse gave us a home away from home. We had our own space to retreat to after hiking or relaxing at the beach, with plenty of room to spread out and snack and mix drinks. It's impeccably kept, and Raquel helped me with everything from flights to a golf cart rental to a dinner recommendation. The experience exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend staying at the boathouse!

Lovely place to stay!
Lovely place to stay!
Imagine waking up at dawn to the sounds of roosters cooing, enticing you to get up to watch the gorgeous sunrise over a delicious cup of coffee in the middle of the bay (aka Ensenada Honda). This is how I spent each morning during my 9-day stay at this adorable boat house in the heart of Culebra. Coming from NYC, I lead a hectic, busy life and all I wanted was a simple, easy and comfortable getaway. With the help of Raquel and her husband Louis, the owners of this precious little spot, that's exactly what I got. They made the whole process seamless from reservation to check-out and were available whenever needed. The boat house itself is newly renovated, stocked with all the kitchen appliances you would need to make your meals (cooking for me is like a moving meditation) to eat on the spacious porch, where you can watch the roosters and iguanas going about their business or the planes leave/land at the airport. If you're not big on cooking, the house is perfectly located just outside the center of town. You can take a nice stroll to local restaurants or jump in a rented car (the rental offices are just down the street, quite convenient upon check-out by the way!) for a short drive. All the beaches are extremely easy to get to from this location too!!! I could go on but I will end with this: There's a little sign on the front porch that reads "Another day in Paradise." While staying at the boat house, it couldn't be any more true. HIGH RECOMMENDATION to stay at the boat house. Perfect for a couple or two good friends (as I came with my travel buddy) looking for a delightful escape to a gem of an island. Can't wait to return. :)

About the owner: Louis Padron has made a life here on Culebra island with his wife, Raquel, whom he met here 9 years ago in a whirlwind romance at the local pizzeria. Since he was a young boy, Louis has always known he wanted to live on the island where his family comes from, and continues to live a life on the water as a boat captain and now enjoys renovating properties on the island. They have two young daughters, and are always actively participating in community activities, including Animal rescue efforts. Let Louis and his family be your host in Culebra, and let the adventure begin!
Why the Owner Chose Culebra:
This property was in real bad shape before we bought it. We saw this property for the diamond that it is. We enjoy renovating old houses and thought this would be a great project. It has taken over a year just to get her where she is today. We love this property because it is on the water and offers a safe place to dock our boats and has a lot of space for our very young daughters to explore, to play and be safe on. We enjoy BBQ's, hosting parties and long weekends at our Boat house.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
We fell in love with The boat House because of the fresh air that comes off the bay. We love spending time just sitting on the dock watching the beautiful sunsets and the boats go by. Our young daughters love catching fish and releasing them off of the docks. The large balcony is ideal for us to enjoy each others company and great for having wonderful BBQ's by ourselves or with other families and friends. I completely renovated our rental unit so that we would have a beautiful place to spend weekends with my family. ( a kind of home away from home ) when we are not using it we would love to share it with you !!!
