About the Property
2- Bedroom/2- Bathroom Overlooking Ensenada Honda/spectacular Views/great Locati
For those unfamiliar with the island, Culebra is located about midway between mainland Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, USVI. With a full-time population of only 1,800 people, it is quiet, peaceful and a haven for those who seek to unwind and feel stress melt away. In spite of our diminutive size and population, however, we are home to several stellar restaurants. Our favorite is easily Zacos Tacos, but don’t let the name fool you. There is far more on the menu than just tacos, although we have never found a reason to try anything else. Other noteworthy restaurants include Susie’s, El Eden and the Dinghy Dock, just to name a few. You will also find not only the world famous Flamenco Beach, but many less-traveled and equally breath-taking beaches, all waiting to be discovered by you. But you don’t have to take our word for it, because Travel and Leisure magazine named Culebra as its top island in the Caribbean for 2013!
When on Culebra, make sure you find the time to visit Isla Culebrita, the small island off the eastern shore. It is home to Tortuga Beach, the inspiration for the name of this home. Also on Culebrita are some fabulous tidal pools fed by waves coming in from the open ocean. The power and fury of this display is truly inspiring. We love to scramble across the rocks, find a good vantage point and just lose ourselves in the majesty. It is almost a spiritual awakening.
One final note: As has been mentioned in some reviews below, the house is in a residential neighborhood and your day just might begin with the roosters crowing. You might also see or hear evidence of dogs, lizards, iguanas and of course, lots of birds. After having vacationed on several different Caribbean islands, we have come to expect such “local color” and to us it is a welcome reminder that we are not in Kansas anymore. We mention these facts because we genuinely want you to love your stay on Culebra so that you will return again and again, regardless of where you choose to lay your head.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Non Smoking Only:
As somewhat militant ex-smokers, it's important to us to keep the house smoke-free. If you are anything like us when we are on vacation, however, you won't spend a whole lot of time hanging around the house. The bottom line is simple: We have nothing against smokers, we respectfully ask that you do not smoke on our property....moreless

About: We are the brand new owners of Caleta Tortuga and are very excited to be a part of this wonderful island. As a professional couple with plans to retire to Culebra within the next few years, we are offering our future retirement home to you while we count the days until we can live there full time.
Why Culebra Pueblo, Culebra, Puerto Rico:
After vacationing in the Caribbean on and off for several years and visiting many lovely places, we discovered and fell in love with Culebra in 2012. It is small, quiet and has everything we want and need. If you are interested in nightlife and wild times, Culebra might not be right for you. If you value seclusion and sparse population along with beautiful beaches and friendly locals, Culebra has exactly what you need.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a modest home with a beautiful view, lots of room to spread out and centrally located so that the island is at your fingertips. Yes, there are far larger, nicer, and more prestigious homes on the island, and if you want the ultimate luxury hideaway, click the back button and keep on looking. This house is all about charm, convenience and affordability.
