Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Culebra - Casa SuMarco

2 BRs, 1 bath, sleeps 4, full kitchen, in/outdoor showers, wash machine, carport

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.

About Susan Lusk

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.

Susan Lusk purchased this house in 2004

Why Susan Lusk chose 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.

What makes this house unique

Simplicity of lifestyle, genuinely nice people, beautiful surroundings, tropical weather.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I found Casa SuMarco after a comprehensive search of accommodation options on Culebra considering location, privacy, reviews and price. In the end, it seemed to be the only vacation home on Culebra which suited our needs, taste and budget. And, we were not disappointed when we finally arrived on Culebra early October 2014. We felt instantly comfortable taking in the grand view over the bay from the deck, the noises and smells of a tropical island and the beauty of the home itself. Casa SuMarco is a small home, but cozy and very functional with everything you need. The house was clean and seemed to be waiting for us. I would also remark on the location. Casa SuMarco is located pretty much in the center of the island on a hill on a quiet side street and about a 15 min walk to the airport or 30 min to "downtown". We decided to rent bicycles from Dick and Cathies Bike rental. The many small hills were challenging at first but after a few days we hardly noticed most of the hills anymore. Then we went Scuba diving and snorkeling every day - the real treat of Culebra. The corals are stunningly beautiful as well as the many tropical fish and the turtles of course. Diving with Taz & Ann was fun and enjoyable. We spent 2 weeks on Culebra at Casa SuMarco and enjoyed a small family reunion as a party of four and Casa SuMarco was definitely the best choice for us. Also, the home owner, Susan, was very responsive to any questions we had and advised us via email on what to do while under a hurricane watch. The hurricane Gonzalo missed the island by a mere 100 km and we enjoyed a beautiful day of snorkeling instead of being locked up in the house.

The perfect place to get away from it all!

  • 5 out of 5
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!

Super nice, quiet location and cute vacation home.

  • 4 out of 5
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.

Owner's Response: thanks— we try to provide everything for a relaxing experience. glad you got so much out of it! (including the symphony of 'wildlife' around us :) it's been a cool season so far, breezes have cooled the house. in the heat of summer a/c in each bedroom provides the relief you need after a day at the beach. come back and visit us again at casa sumarco!

Beautiful View

  • 5 out of 5
The house is very comfortable for two people, and the deck is great to relax on in the morning or evening. You could do it all day if Culebra didn't have such wonderful beaches. We would have spent more time in the house, but our short four-day stay required us to get out and see everything we could. If you can stay for an entire week, there is no reason not to! The house is only a short drive the from airport and town of Dewey, so you're far enough away to feel secluded but still within 15 minutes of everything on the island.

Owner's Response: Glad you got to see the whole island in your short stay. Next time I hope you can stay for a week to spend more time lounging on the deck and soaking up the view!

Susan has thought of everything that you need.

  • 5 out of 5
Everything was TOP RATE! Susan has thought of everything! What a fantastic vacation, we will definately be back. Susan, thanks for being so patient with us and by the way, Jerry (Jerry's Jeeps)was AWESOME, his restaurant recommendation were "spot on". Can't figure out why he had some bad reviews, he is great. The pics do not do this place justice, the view from the deck was "Postcard Perfect" and of course, my sons LOVED lounging in the hammock. The beach chairs, Boogie Boards and cooler were a real convenience. Thanks for everything! I already have friends/coworkers asking about our stay and I am a little reluctant to tell them, as I don't want the secret to get out! Susan, thanks again for allowing us to stay in your very quaint home!

It's a very special place and we welcome new visitors, as long as they're the kind who can truly appreciate Culebra's simplicity. So be selective about who you let in on our little secret!!

Exactly What We Needed

  • 5 out of 5
This sweet little home was the perfect place to experience Culebra. The home itself was comfortable and had everything we needed - linens, dishes, etc. The photos from the deck do not do the view justice. It is seriously beautiful! We were there over new years and watched the fireworks display over Dewey. Amazing! Kids had a great time using the provided boogie boards. The owner was very easy to deal with and provided a lot of very helpful information about getting around the island, jeep rental, restaurants, and an extensive DVD collection. We could not have been more pleased with our experience.

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.
