Culebra, Puerto Rico
Available for the first time! Two story beach cottage right next to the ocean. Top floor are the bedrooms and a living room along an L shape balcony. The downstairs is an open terrace with an airy kitchen and the bathroom. There is also an outside shower to wash off the salt water and sand. 20 steps away from the ocean and surrounded by trees. Hidden from view, this property sits right next to the Marine Biological Reserve of Culebra. The best snorkeling in Culebra right at your front door. The beauty and quiet of this place will make you come back again and again. Only a short 8-10 minute walk from town so you don't even need to have transportation. World famous Flamenco beach is only about a 7 minute drive from the property. If you don't have a car, public transportation is available from town to anywhere in Culebra. Five or... Read more

Interaction with guests
I personally greet/receive all guests that arrive at our cottage. Once you are settled in you will not see me again until check out time. But, I am very accessible by phone if guests have any questions or if they decide to make use of our water toys (kayaks, paddleboard). You can also call me if you want to learn a little about our island paradise. We understand that most people want their privacy while on vacation but, also that some people want up to date information because they want to maximize their vacation time...very accessible, but very hands off!

You will not regret a stay at Tulios yellow house! Tulio is an awesome host - great recommendations - lots of answered questions and insider info. His family has lived on the island for generations. Next time on Culebra will rent again. We stayed a family of 4: me, husband and 2 kids 15 and 10 and was very comfortable and roomy. We loved the hammocks, funky kitchen and downstairs bathroom set up and great beach/snorkel right out front. its also a short walk from carlos rosario amazing snorkeling (weve been to turks and caicos and felt this had better snorkeling than smiths reef and other spots weve visited). Note this is funky. If you love something just off the beaten path but still close to town - right down the hill - alot of these places that are quiet are really isolated and a long drive from town - not the yellow house - its in the perfect location! Get up and grab a coffee and breakfast in town before heading off for a nice snorkel. Tulio has a cousin who took us on to...

About the neighbourhood
The property is located a short distance from the town in a private neighborhood with a handful of houses. Go up towards the municipal clinic or follow the road that takes you to the biological reserve. Down the big hill and take a left into a dirt access road. Keep to the right and into the tunnel of acacia trees and you are there. Even though is a short distance from town it is well hidden by huge acacia and mangrove trees so you feel that you are miles away from everything. After the tunnel, the rd opens up to a clearing were the house is located. The brightly painted yellow house gets your attention but, what really catches your eyes and ears is the tree filled shore and the sound of the gentle surf. Walk towards it and you will see the beautiful southern view of the island of Vieque... more

How to get there
The cheapest way to get there is by ferry boat. Fajardo is about an hour away from San Juan. It will cost you $2.25 one way! The thing is that during 'high season' (December to August ) you either need to reserve your tickets (almost impossible by phone so you need to go in person to the ticket office) or get to Fajardo before dawn to get your place in line. There are passenger ferries at 9am, 3pm and 7pm also vehicle ferries at 4am and 5pm (some days also at 9:30 am). The most fun, shortest, and easiest way is to catch a 10 passenger bi-plane out of San Juan or out of the E. Coast. But, it can run you up to $90.00 for a round trip ticket (money well spent if you want to avoid the seasonal crowds). If you like peace and quiet, no crowds, empty beaches, etc the best time to go to... more
