A week stay is seven nights. Since 98% of our guests stay a week or longer our price structure was created to make it most affordable for these clients. We cannot prorate these rates for stays under a week. However, you are welcomed to stay longer and we do prorate out days over a week. We do not require a Saturday to Saturday schedule. The schedule for each home is based upon the individual schedule of each house. We pride ourselves on the condition and cleanliness of the homes we represent which is why we have a repeat rate of over 66%.

EFFECTIVE - APRIL 1st, 2004--NEW TAX ON SHORT TERM RENTALS - THE GOVERNMENT OF PUERTO RICO IN AN EFFORT TO PROMOTE TOURISM NOW REQUIRES THAT WE CHARGE A 7% TAX ON SHORT TERM RENTALS.

ZONI BEACH AREA: Zoni Beach is a mile long sand beach located on the secluded eastern coast of Culebra.

The high quality zoning has designated most of the east end either 25 or 5 acres per house zoning.

Zoni Beach faces St Thomas, Culebrita, and Cayo Norte and the water is normally calm. Typically during the winter season Zoni Beach has about 30-50 visitors, however many times you can be the only person. The nearest commercial building is back over four miles on a paved country type road. Zoni Beach is a timeless treasure. As for the past thousands of years, the Leatherback Turtles come back each year to nest. The nesting is done at night during late March to July. We ask that you respect their Zoni legacy as it is they that keep this treasure timeless. The Leatherback Turtles are an endangered species and are protected by the Endangered Species Act. Therefore- now and forever there should be NO building on Zoni Beach.
