My husband is originally from Puerto Rico but went to school in California where he and I met and now reside. We discovered Culebra on one of our trips to Puerto Rico. As it turns out, Carlos’ grandfather was a trader/explorer and sailed the Caribbean frequenting our little bay as a resting spot. (The history of his sailboat, the Pocahontas, can be found in the Culebra museum.) Carlos has had a deep connection to this magical place ever since he was a boy in Puerto Rico. Unique fact: our children all played competitive water polo and two of our daughters are gold medalists from the London Olympics; they chose to celebrate their win here in Culebra!

This property offers breathtaking views of Las Pelas Bay, Culebrita and St.Thomas. You will see the most beautiful colors in the water as the sun,cloud and occasional rain pass over, it is absolutely mesmerizing. Our peninsula is called Punto del Viento for the constant winds that keep it cool and refreshing even in the hottest tropical weather. We love to swim and love the large lap pool. We love to boat, kayak, snorkel, paddle board and our little bay is the perfect playground. Plus Culebrita is a quick boat ride away and Zoni beach just minutes away by car. Culebra is a beautiful wildlife refuge with mangroves and turtle nesting sites, and we are surrounded by trails for exploring. In this tropical island, who would have thought we could find cacti? Culebra offers so many treasures to discover.

We built our home to take advantage of these beautiful views, to provide a place of relaxation, healthy living and adventure. We have one of the largest pools on the island and enjoy refreshing after long day in sun. We love our porch for the mesmerizing views of St Thomas, for the constantly changing colors of the water and for the most amazing star gazing. We love our proximity to all kinds of nature, the envigorating walk to Zoni, the breezes during our yoga sessions on the porch, the quick boat ride to Culebrita and the peace and serenity that is Pura Vida.

Gorgeous location, elegant house!

We loved our stay at Pura Vida and are already talking about returning. We've rented quite a few houses over the years, but this one doesn't feel like a rental. It's a beautiful, bright and airy house with spectacular views that is perfectly equipped which everything from decent knives, to great linens to beach chairs and umbrellas.

This property is exceptional. There really aren't words for the quality and views you will find. The pool area is better than any high end resort. Grab your swimsuit, bring a couple of friends and have the time of your life.

How relaxing to wind down sitting on the porch reading a book and having total peace and quiet. Manuel, the property manager was wonderful. He was precise and to the point showing all of the property specifics. He was more than happy to help us with directions and suggestions to make our stay comfortable.

If there were more stars available than five, you can bet I would gladly give them. The owners of the property were wonderful to do business with. Perfection!
Owner's Response: Wonderful guests make our job easy! So glad you enjoyed our little paradise, hope to see you back again!

Beautiful - both the home and the view!

This home is one of the most amazing vacation spots I have visited. Everything has been remodeled beautifully and the view is absolutely to die for! If you are looking for a place to "get away from it all" while still having all of the "essentials" (and more!), then this is the place for you! I can't wait to visit again and I cannot recommend this as a vacation option enough!

The property was very clean and well-maintained. The customer service and interaction with the property owners was fantastic and very professional. I would absolutely recommend this to friends, relatives...everyone!

Carlos and Peggy have a beautiful and secluded place, just what the doctor ordered. We totally enjoyed our stay. You need to sit outside at night and do some stargazing, there was an evening we saw dozens of shooting stars!!!
Carlos called to ensure our accommodations were OK and told me to check out the birds in the early morning, which I did while having a cup of great coffee. Everything went flawless. We will definitely be back! Thanks for making your home available to our family. God bless.
