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!

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...
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 Culebra ...
