BRISAS DEL MAR - A PRIVATE HIDEAWAY WITH OCEAN & HARBOR VIEWS

Culebra House Rental Photos and Description

Perfect for 1 or 2 couples. Sleeps 4

Brisas sits on a hillside surrounded by partially shaded decks and interesting succulent gardens. The many windows & glass doors offer spectacular outlooks of the mouth of the harbor & Caribbean Sea and gardens. On clear days, you will see, the mountains of St. Croix on the horizon. From your hammock, through the trees you can see Fullodoza Bay. Vieques is in the distance to the right. The night lights of St. Thomas can be seen peeking through the hills to the east. Mesmerizing views are interrupted by occasional visits of one of the many birds that wing by. You will almost certainly witness hummingbirds gathering nectar from the brightly colored flowers. Full moon rises over the bay are spectacular. Star gazers will not be disappointed on moonless nights. Early birds can catch the sunrise. Owners live on island but not on property, allowing complete privacy. Brisas is private, peaceful, quiet and a nature photographer's dream.

Further description....: Lazy days, kick back, read and enjoy the sights from your perch on the hillside. Enjoy peace & tranquility, while surrounded by picturesque activity. Follow the dreamy sailboats as they come & go from Culebra to St. Croix, St. Thomas and other neighboring islands. Spy on the humming birds & other birds visiting our gardens regularly. From our dipping pool, enjoy osprey and/or hawk soaring in the blue sky above.

Nights are generally quiet. All winter Orion & the Milky Way are prominent in the night sky. Town lights are just far enough away so as not to interfere. Calm nights dive shops may book night dives & water taxi may offer moon lit tours of the bay.

Nothing is far on Culebra, the nearest beach is Punta Soldado, a coral beach & short swim to one of the many colorful reefs that dot Culebra's shoreline.

A 4wheel drive is necessary, standard & automatics are available on the island.

Please call or email for availability. We find that the calendar is not reliable.

Wonderful vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5
Brisas del Mar was so much more than we expected. Everything you could possibly need and more. Jane & George were wonderful and always willing to help with a question or suggestion. House is immaculate and the attention to detail in the landscaping & decorative accents is quite clever and lovely. We plan to return as frequently as time and fortune allow.

Best vacation...ever!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a get-away that was beautiful, tropical, and secluded. We found that, and more at Brisa del Mar.Simply put, we loved the house. Mornings on the deck, having our breakfast and taking in the beautiful harbor view was one of our favorite activities. We enjoyed Zoni beach the best, because of the seclusion. After the beach, we would go onto the dipping pool, which was relaxation personified. The tropical breezes and beautiful landscaping made an early evening in the dipping pool indescribable. Then we would either cook dinner in, and have it on the deck, or go out to one of the restaurants in town. We also have to give kudos to Jane and George for their cd collection, availability, and attention to detail! We cannot wait to return this time next year! Judy and Louis

Lovely Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
I planned my recent return to Culebra at the very last minute, and I felt very very fortunate that Jane and George were able to graciously accommodate me! Their home was recommended by a discerning friend who lives on the island, and it absolutely was a relaxing and fun find. Jane and George were thorough in their introduction to the house and gardens, and very laid back owners to rent from. Their home offers everything one might need for cooking, going to the beach, dipping in the pool, listening to music, having movie nights (there was a fun collection of DVDs and books too) and resting well! Brisas is a tranquil place streaming with sunshine and delightful details that you notice more and more as you settle in. There is lovely local art subtly placed inside and out. There was an ample amount of shade on the deck, which is wonderful for me due to my very fair skin. I sat in the dining area overlooking the deck eating breakfast as the sun rose each day, watching the light change on the water and listening to the birds in the garden. The description of the house and grounds is true through and through....I love nature photography, and found myself crouching with my camera around little sculptured carvings, cacti, birds and plants in the gardens! I am thankful to Jane and George for their generosity and great host- and hostessing.

Beautiful view, peaceful wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a lovely 7 days at Brisas del Mar. It was perfectly spacious enough for my family of four - my husband and I in the bedroom adjacent to the deck, and my 10 and 8 year old kids in the 2nd bedroom. They're used to sharing a double bed on vacations, so that was no problem.

The view from the front deck is beautiful, as the photos accurately illustrate. Though an earlier review suggests the living area might be too small for 4 people we didn't find this to be true at all. We were there to spend most of our time snorkeling and hanging out on different beaches so were planning on being out all day. However, one of the kids was sick for part of the week so we ended up spending more time in the house than we expected to, and there was plenty of room. The small dipping pool in the back is fun for small kids, and a nice cool down for adults. The deck in the front is where we would spend much of our time, but we did find the need to go indoors from time to time when the mosquitos came out. The breezes from being up on the side of a hill are the house's best asset - and these breezes kept the few bugs away most of the time. We cooked at home most nights and would definitely recommend Zacos Tacos for a delicious, affordable meal out.

We were happy to be able to use the house's 4 beach chairs, 4 beach towels and a beach bag. The one racket of Culebra I'd say is that the jeep rentals are overpriced, but oh well. We had an amazing time snorkeling right from the beach and saw sea turtles, rays, and a variety of fish. The waves can pick up every once in awhile at Playa Flamenco which can be fun for boogie boarding or just playing. Playa Zoni is gorgeous. All of the beaches were remarkable in the scarcity of people there!

If you are seeking a relaxing vacation in a beautiful spot Culebra is a terrific destination, and Brisas del Mar is a great home base. We can't wait to return some day soon.

Great Views, relaxing wonderful house

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from 9 wonderful days at Brisas del Mar. The house is on a hill with amazing views of the bay and the sea beyond. From the bottom of the hill, the house is hidden from view by wonderful landscaping which makes it feel very private. The house is light and sunny in the morning and cool and shaded in the afternoons. The breezes kept it comfortable all day, even when it was still and hot down below. We spent most of our time at the house on the deck, reading, looking out over the bay and napping. The deck has shady and sunny places for most of the day including a wonderful hammock and a table for 4. But inside was cozy too for playing games at night or curling up with a good book.

The trip started out well when we were met at the airport by Francie who led us to the house in our rented 4x4 (necessary) and showed us around. She was always available if we had a question and was very responsive. We cooked almost all our meals at the house although there are wonderful restaurants close by. But why eat out when there's such a lovely place to eat in?

Culebra is magical with amazing beaches and incredible snorkeling right off shore. We snorkeled at a different beach each day and even right around Christmas, there were seldom many people there. We took a trip to the even smaller island of Culebrita with Sebastian who lives in the pink house on the hill which was also great.

We were looking for a quiet place to escape and relax. That's exactly what we found at Brisas del Mar.
Jane was very responsive to all my questions and helpful with advise as it was our first trip to Culebra. The driveway is very steep (hence the 4 wheel drive) and there are stairs to the house, so it isn't appropriate for those who have trouble with stairs or hills, but otherwise, that just adds to the charm of the house.

Looking forward to next year

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at Brisas for two - three weeks a year for 3 years now, and I'm looking forward to my next trip in February already! We have been going to Culebra for about 15 years now and have stayed mainly in rented houses all around the island. I love Brisas as it is a quiet location, yet near enough to town that you can walk there if you want. I have also found it peaceful, very reasonable, has excellent views and all you need to do your own cooking. George and Jane have been extremely friendly and helpful, and have done a great job of landscaping the area with indigenous flowering plants that make the place look great - echoing other reviews, you need a four wheel drive to get there!

The description given is accurate - it's a well equipped place in a peaceful, quiet location and has two bedrooms. I would think it ideal for one or two people. I feel the living area inside is small for handling 4 people very long, but the deck overlooking the harbor and sea is large and relaxing. One thing to note, if you are an avid TV watcher, don't go there - there is no TV. Entertainment at the house is enjoying the peaceful, quiet surroundings and music, with an occasional video which are supplied if you so desire. Also, books can be checked out at the "new" (3 year old?) library in town. The "dipping pool" I thought would be a joke before I first went there, but have found it a great place to cool down and relax after snorkeling the areas of Culebra and I highly enjoy it. As I stated, I am looking forward to next year and continuing to rent there in the future--
