ZONI BEACH ESTATE ON 25 ACRES OF SECLUDED BEAUTY, POOL AND SWEEPING OCEAN VIEWS!

Culebra House Rental Photos and Description

Traditional Caribbean Hip Roof House, Luxury Home: 4 Bedrms, 3 Bths (sleeps 8)

Four bedrooms, three baths. Rustic. Natural. Removed. A romantic retreat... an artist's paradise. A forever remembered family adventure. With spectacular, 60-mile, down-island views of the Virgin Islands, you may never leave the pool to walk down to the beach. Come here and get away TO it all! Ideal for active tourists and pool-potatoes alike... A Large pool overlooks everything. Twenty-five acres of privacy, rolling down to a lagoon which backs onto the famed Zoni Beach - where it is crowded if six people lie on its mile of perfect sand. The Plantation Style House comes with WiFi, blender, linens, towels, TV with DVD player, Stereo Surround Sound, original Caribbean Antiques and oil paintings, orange trees, palms, and mahogany. Beach is a two-minute drive away. But please note: the deer, wild horses, iguanas, and chupacabras belong to the island. Nearly zero crime, and most locals speak English as well as Spanish.

Why Owner Chose Culebra Island: We like the Islands and we do Day Charters on our sailboat. We love Culebra because of the good people and the lack of rampant development. Most importantly, it has some of the best water sports in the entire Caribbean...good surfing, great snorkeling, good scuba, great sailing,etc. etc. and the hikes around the house are spectacular as well. So come and sit by the pool, or set off on an all day hike. You can do it all on this friendly little island. An island so few folks have heard about, that once you get home, you make think it was all a dream.

Owner Notes Unique Benefits at this Home: Outrageous views. Solitude. The drama of weather: towering clouds and and two oceans meeting right out front. The North Atlantic and the tranquil Caribbean. Thunderstorms off in the distance. Rockin reggae and Happy Hour. Dipping in the pool. Playing with the kids in the shade of the garden. Snorkeling with friends. Surfing alone. And often... A mile long beach with 3 other people -- all of whom are my family. Beach View: Best Views on the Island... Sweeping views of the Virgin Islands and about 15 closer cays. Ocean View: Watch ships and sailboats, turtles and whales... yes Humpbacks are once again calving in these waters. Zoni Beach- A mile long swath of sand. Calm waters and good snorkeling at either end. A major turtle nesting beach. A tropical dream.

There are several delightful cats on the premises. They work very hard to keep the house critter free when the house is empty. They are very friendly and when guests are there, the cats are only permitted outdoors or in the Great Room (not in the bedrooms). Abbie, our caretaker, comes by every few days to check on the house and the cats. Due to our infinity pool, we cannot rent to children under the age of ten without an indemnity clause signed by parents. Ask us in either language about spending an incredible day chartering a captained sailboat around the island. You will get a special rate for renting Zoni Beach Estate. Dress appropriately... which is minimally. Temperatures here range between 65-88 degrees. Sea temperatures between 80-85 degrees. And pina coladas are best served frozen.

amazingly beautiful and incredibly private

  • 5 of 5
I love to travel and I have to say this is the best VRBO I have ever stayed at and one of the most relaxing and wonderful vacations we have ever had as a family. This place is simply amazing. The location, views, pool, layout of the home are all perfect. We arrived to a rainbow in the early evening and enjoyed a week of a bright moon at night and amazing stars. We traveled with another family and each couple had beautiful bedrooms with ocean views and breezes. The two rooms the teens slept in were great (and we all appreciated they had their own bathroom) but did not have the views. They mainly slept out on the very private and secure deck under the stars and retreated to the back rooms when the sun came up. Really a perfect situation for teens! I have not had another vacation stay where I would have felt completely comfortable with my kids sleeping outside the house. The main area of the house is separated from the bedrooms and allowed some people to stay up late, others to wake early, and no one bothered anyone. The main room also feels like you are outside due to the patio doors and breezes and no one felt like it was a chore to go inside to cook with those amazing views. We also could escape the sun when we wanted but still feel like we were outside. This is not a generic vacation home and I really appreciated that. It looks like someone creatively and comfortably decorated it and it creates a beautiful and relaxing environment. If you are looking for generic this is not it...but then you probably would not like Culebra either since it is not that type of island vacation. This is our second trip to Culebra and I loved the Flamenco Beach lodging but when you wanted to escape the sun you no longer had a view or breeze. My only advice would be to fly over to the island from San Juan rather than deal with the ferry over. I have always been afraid of small planes but I watched youtube videos ahead of time to prepare and the views are absolutely amazing. The ferry back is easier in terms of tickets and timing but I think we will fly back the next time too in order to avoid the expense of San Juan and to maximize our time in Culebra. We definitely hope to stay here again! I think this has to be the very best location on the island and allows for an amazing relaxing vacation!

Owner's Response: I just want to say thanks a lot for this super-positive review. The glowing comments reflect the hard work of our new house manager who is a perfectionist!

The guest certainly "got" the fact that the house was beautifully designed. At any time Families of 2 or 10 can commune happily or retreat to privacy -- which is a requirement in any vacation. The classy architect was also a renown Manhattan interior designer, who valued Historic Caribbean antiques and plush comfort without ever forgetting the sweeping vistas. (Above all, the designer was a mother and grandparent -- in fact, she was my Mom.)

When someone picks up on Zoni Beach Estate's special energy, as corny as it sounds, I feel a personal connection… shared values of family and fun.

So I look forward to the reviewer becoming one of our growing family of repeat guests. Thanks again for the review, and come back soon!!!!

Absolutely beautifully located vacation home. Must have really been something in its day. The view is stunning. The pool is such a wonderful luxury on this dry island. The bones of the home are excellent. Just think of the house as past its prime. The doors, windows, and screens need a lot of reinvestment. The intense sun, wind, rain, and heat have taken their toll. The pool mechanicals are marginal. The layout of the structures is fine. The plumbing/water system is something you should be ready for: Fresh water is relatively scarce resource. It is not for wasting. (think low-flow and small volumes) All the water is from cisterns, located below the structures. All faucets run SLOW. But, the plumbing works fine. One realizes what a luxury the pool is, after witnessing water delivery to the house via tanker truck.
We were prepared for the driveway but, it still made me laugh. Four-wheel drive is not mandatory unless it is really raining.
But, the location is wonderful. I watched the sun rise over Culebrita and St Thomas, each daybreak. I would then jump in the pool to cool-off. After a quick toweling, a cup of coffee always tasted great. The house wifi (limited range/satellite speed) allowed us keep in contact with family/friends. Then we often went down to Zoni Beach (1mi away) to play in the surf. Or, we went to Tamarindo Beach to snorkel with turtles.
We would return to the house, eat lunch, jump in the pool, then nap.
In the evening we would sit and watch the ships cruise out of St Thomas. After dark, stargazing and a last dip in the pool before bed. Tradewinds and surfsound in the distance. Just loved it.
FYI The cat was loud in the morning. And, all shopping is at the other end of the island. AND, The place is not childproofed -caution

Owner's Response: You get 1 every 3 years! These guests found the hidden emergency keys. They then went into the utility room, the basement and worse -- the owner's private storage and laundry room. They proceeded to use the laundry(not allowed in lease). Then overloaded and broke the dryer. (I've now ordered a new belt... part number GEdbs453bww.) They also broke the DVD player! So many towels are missing, I've ordered 8 new sets from Costco. Obviously, I informed them about the deposit being charged for these items, so obviously I got the review. Lastly, I am certain the utility rooms were not well swept -- as I do not have my cleaning crew typically sweep, mop and disinfect them. Frankly, tools, mops, and stuff are piled high in all these spaces. And that is why guests are not supposed to go in them!

absolutely amazing vacation - bar is raised

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for a week within a group of 8 and had the best time. Knew the place would be great, but honestly the photos didn't do the place justice. The house is perfectly secluded, but surrounded by the most amazing view so you don't feel like you're totally out of it. The huge living room/kitchen was great for meals and hanging out and the pool was a great option when you needed shade to be an option.
We were 4 couples so we rotated rooms as those in the back ones felt a little shafted due to the darkness, separated beds and constantly meowing cat, but wouldn't deter us from returning.

Would definitely come again and recommend it to all

We arrived with a family of 7, 4 adults and 3 children, and enjoyed an exceptional week at this property. The house is spacious and lovely, the pool and views fantastic. The owner was attentive and stopped by 3 times during the week to tend the pool, yard, etc. The house was clean and well appointed. It's a perfect size for up to 8 people.

perfect house, beautiful island

  • 5 of 5
We loved every minute here. The house is incredibly comfortable, clean, quiet and relaxing. The views are astounding and the best beach on the island is just down the hill. And the owner is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. There is lots to do on Culebra, but the house was so perfect, we barely left.

Culebra Island, Puerto Rico, Puerto Rico, Caribbean (12 miles from the Virgin Islands, 20 miles from Puerto Rico) -- Culebra is what the Caribbean was forty years ago. Magazines call it Hemingwayesque. Why? Because it's about anti-chic... No glitz. No mega resorts... Just beaches, Coral reefs, Wildlife Sanctuaries, more beaches, Scuba, Snorkeling, Sailing, Surfing, Wind Surfing, Bone Fishing, Marlin Fishing, Kayaking, and more beaches. The Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are 15 miles away. Four miles distant is the booming town of Culebra -- with 2,000 souls, fourteen bars, ten restaurants, four markets, two dance halls, and countless chickens! Nightlife is surprisingly vibrant -- till 10pm. Or stay home at Casa Zoni, blend up a rum drink, kick off your flip-flops and dance under the stars...

Other Activities: shopping, wildlife viewing, boating, kayaking
