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.

                  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 car or scooter it's about 6 minutes to Flamenco Beach, 12 minutes to Zoni Beach, 7 minutes to the center of town and the ferry dock.

                   

                  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.
