Bask in the breeze on the patio in the backyard overlooking Ensenada Honda Bay. This apartment is on the first floor of a two family vacation home. One mile from the center of town on the hill overlooking Ensanada Honda Bay. Bring your beachwear and leave the linens and towels at home. Each part of this two family house has a private entrance, a fully equipped kitchen, and a Smart TV for streaming via smartphone - NO cable (why would you watch TV anyways??). Beach towels and beach chairs included for all guests. AC in every bedroom, fans in common space. Washer and dryer available. Basic starters provided which only includes toilet paper, hand wash, dish soap, shampoo and shower gel. If you run out, the grocery store is just around the corner!
La Pérgola is on the first floor of a two family house with a large backyard, a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit with an outdoor dining space on the patio under the backyard pergola that overlooks Ensenada Honday Bay. We provide 8 beach chairs, bedding, blankets, bath and beach towels for all guests (up to 8) as well as a portable cooler for the beach.
The entire backyard is accessible to La Pérgola guests, except for a locked storage room in the backyard that is next to the laundry room. The laundry room is a shared space and also accessible by the guests on the second floor. There is a washer and a dryer that you may use. Note that the chest freezer is not currently available for use. There are 2 bicycles that may or may not be in working condition. You may use them if you feel confident about getting it back up the hill! Please return all items removed from the laundry room before you check out. USE BICYCLES AT OWN RISK!
We will NOT be available in person, but we are available via the guest messaging portal and we urge you to let us know if anything is not as expected so we can DO something about it, no matter how small. If you don't speak up, there's nothing we can do about that and if you speak up after the fact, we WILL call you out on it.
There are free roaming roosters that are all over the island and seems to be confusing street lights with the sunrise, so take note. No, we cannot tell them to be quiet, you will need to attempt that on your own, at your own risk:-) The Island of Culebra is a very special place, not only because of the beauty you find on the beaches like Flamenco, but because of the people and the atmosphere where haste and hurry is nowhere to be found. Instead, kindness and compassion surrounds you here. Even though Culebra is a mere 7x3mi, you will be surprised how much there is to explore!
GETTING TO THE ISLAND
If this is your first trip to the Island of Culebra, you MUST let us know! Getting here may be not be as easy as getting on a plane, but once you arrive it will be worth it! Note that there are a few ways that you can reach the island from mainland Puerto Rico - it all depends on how much time you have and what your spending limit is. Reach out to us and we will give you all the current options that we are aware of so you can make the BEST of your trip!
TRANSPORTATION ON THE ISLAND
We recommend that you rent a vehicle. Stunning views are accompanied by steep hills! Most guests prefer to rent a golf cart because it enhances the island experience. We prefer golf carts as well but we must point out that it may be hard to get up the hill with a golf cart with more than 2 passengers. It will require that you step on the gas as you drive up the hill and most guests have no issue with this, but we cannot guarantee that you will not have any difficulty. We recommend that you park on the street if you use a golf cart, but you could park in the driveway if you wish to do so, just take it easy at the entrance, it's rather bumpy with a golf cart. Be smart and negotiate the price of your rental - this only applies to rentals for 7+ days!
