Culebra house description

Enjoy wide-open water views and sip a cool drink on Casa SuMarco's huge wrap-around deck overlooking one of the most beautiful bays in the entire Caribbean. Only a few hundred feet from the water's edge and cooled by tropical breezes, this comfortable 2-bedroom house sleeps up to 4 people, perfect for a family or couples. Enjoy the privacy of having your own house and landscaped grounds in a small, safe and friendly neighborhood on the bay.

Both bedrooms are air-conditioned, all other rooms have ceiling fans. Prepare your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen or sample island cooking at Culebra's unique variety of restaurants. Casa SuMarco has a washing machine, dvd/flat screen tv with a varied movie library, cd/ipod stereo, outdoor gas grill, broadband internet access with wifi & ethernet, indoor & outdoor showers. Your private parking area is right at the front gate in our own outdoor car-port. The spacious grounds have flowering shrubs and palm trees. A perfect island getaway.


Our secret island paradise. Shhh, don't tell . . .: Culebra is among the 'Best Secret Islands on Earth' (Travel & Leisure, 2010), has one of the '6 Caribbean Beaches to See Before You Die' (New York Times, 2011), and nearby Flamenco Beach is 'One of the Top 10 in the World' (Travel Channel, 2010). Flamenco Beach is just 6 minutes from Casa SuMarco by car or scooter. Its central location on the island is convenient to all restaurants, shops, town, ferry and airport. A few friendly watering holes in town have live music or karaoke on some nights. Restaurants range from simple island cooking to elegant gourmet dining. Small local markets and unique island gift shops provide for all your needs. A weekly open-air produce market offers a cornucopian array of fresh fruit & vegetables.

All you need are flipflops and sunblock: Nature is the local attraction on Culebra. Endless white sandy beaches dot the island. Many are within a few minutes' ride from the house. Deserted beaches, beautiful reefs, fabulous snorkeling and diving. No malls, resorts or golf courses. No passport or fancy clothes required. English is spoken everywhere. To get the most from your visit, renting a car will give you the best mobility and opportunity to explore and experience all aspects of the island.

Kick back, relax: Come for the simplicity and beauty. Enjoy snorkeling the colorful reefs, scuba diving, nature walks, photography, biking, kayaking, fishing and boating. Hiking, observing hawksbill or leatherback turtles nesting and hatching in spring and birdwatching in the extensive Culebra Wildlife Refuge are favorite activities for nature lovers.

Bring your sunblock, camera, a good book . . . and relax.

                        My husband and I enjoyed 10 days staying at Casa SuMarco with my mom & dad. It was my parents second visit, and they were excited about sharing this lovely retreat with us. We felt immediately at home in Susan's charming Carribean house. The location, views and breezes were incredible. The house comes with everything you will need to have a great time at the beautiful beaches. My husband especially enjoyed the hammock, and my Dad and I spend every morning on the deck with our books and coffee. The neighborhood was quiet with the exception of an occasional canine chorus in the evening and a few roosters who needed their time zone adjusted. We made friends with a neighbor who was restoring an old boat, and found the people of Culebra to be very friendly overall. There is an unhurried, low-key and very tranquil feeling to this place and we all rested well and returned to our lives recharged and determined to return. Now I am making plans to bring my own daughter to stay at Casa SuMarco. Thank you Susan for your generosity in sharing your lovely home with others!

                        House is fantastic. What a view!!. We came from a beachfront house on Vieques to your place. I was sad about leaving the beachfront thinking that leaving the water would be a bummer. I was wrong. This is our first trip to the Caribbean with Culebra and the view from your place being everything I expected of a laid back Caribbean island. The only drawback is the darn full moon, the stars under a dark sky must be amazing. Thanks for offering such an idyllic place.

                        We are back in Germany. It is cold and rainy and we are missing Culebra. We had a great time there. Your house is very nice and the great view is beautiful. Thank you for your good recomandations. We had good snorkeling and good dinners in Zaco's Taco's, Bahia Marina and Susie's. It tasted very good -- my wife and daughter had a big lobster. So, this was not the last time we stay on Culebra!

                        Inviting and comforting home. Could not be better. Safe, convenient location with sweeping wrap around vistas of the the island. You'll never lose sight of sun, sea and sky at Casa SuMarco. Susan lovingly set up the entire experience and everything was prepped for pleasure and relaxation. Perfect in every way!

                        My partner & I just spent a glorious week here last month and are already talking about a return visit next year. All the positive reviews have pretty much said it all and there's not much more to add. If you really want a comfortable place to unwind and just relax this is it. From the amazing view, to all the amenities you could possibly need, every creature comfort has been thought of. My only worry is that change will come someday to this island...it's so unspoiled & charming ( no chain retail stores, cruise ships or Sandals Resorts :-) We got around fine with just a golf cart, but will probably rent a jeep next time (to get to those hard to reach corners of the island). Zoni Beach was our favorite spot and be sure to go there at night for the star watching. Also, be sure to check out The Homeless Dog Cafe for a catered meal you'll never forget. We just can't wait to return to this very special place someday!

                        Recommended for: Age 55+, romantic getaway, adventure seekers, families with young children, sightseeing, tourists without a car, families with teenagers.

                        Manager response: Now that you've discovered us, sshhhhhh :)) How else can we keep the little secret that makes it so magical? It's great to hear you enjoyed your stay so much and we look forward to your inevitable return!

                        Susan's home is adorable, set on a hillside with a great view and even better ocean breeze. Culebra is a delightful, quiet and uncrowded destination. Perfect for relaxing on Sue's covered deck, snorkeling with fish and turtles right off the west shore of the island, or spending some beach time at one of the most beautiful beaches (which is not only devoid of crowds, but compared to most places, can be considered almost deserted!). Sue had everything set up and ready for us with easy instructions, and helpful information about local sites and restaurants. The home is clean, well kept, and centrally located. We have 4 in our family including 2 teenage children. the house was great. The only drawback (if I had to find one) is the bedrooms are small. Not a big issue at all- the house, host help and instructions were super! We look forward to returning sometime in the future.

                        We had a great time. Your house is just a delight; we found everything in perfect order. As you know, getting around Culebra can be a challenge with some narrow roads in poor condition but we managed just fine. We visited many of the beaches and did a lot of snorkeling. The weather was great and most of our restaurant experiences were good. What a view! And so convenient to everything.

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About: My husband and I retired from book publishing in New York. We love the slower pace, the simple life, and the natural beauty of Culebra.

                      Why Culebra:
                      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! Ten years later, it still is.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Simplicity of lifestyle, genuinely nice people, beautiful surroundings, tropical weather.
