OCEANFRONT -SWIM, KAYAK, FISH, SNORKEL AND RELAX

Culebra House Rental Photos and Description

Spectacular views, steady cooling breezes, direct access to Pela Bay

Waterfront - Picture perfect Caribbean views and a steady, cooling breeze, located on a 5 acre property, 4 miles from town and 2 miles from Zoni Beach. This property includes two houses, Casa la Pela and Casa Viento Alisio, 60 yards apart, which can be rented separately or together, thus a perfect choice for two families vacationing together. Each house features a large (~700 sq ft) veranda overlooking Almodovar and Manglar Bays (aka Pela Bay), with panoramic views to Culebrita, Sail Rock and St Thomas to the east. Each house has 2 full baths and a modern, well equipped kitchen in an open configuration with the dining and living room areas. Casa la Pela has 4 bedrooms (2 with kings, 2 with twins). Casa Viento Alisio has 2 bedrooms (1 king and 1 king/twins) and an office with a futon couch.

The veranda is a lovely spot for dining, bird watching, reading and just relaxing. The modern kitchen provides a full set of appliances for easy cooking, or you can barbecue on the patio.

From the house, 70 feet above the ocean, an easy 80 yard trail leads down to the protected Pela Bay, where you can swim and snorkel or take the kayaks to explore the small nearby islands and many inlets. For the sport fishermen, Pela Bay also includes expansive flats for bone fishing, which you can access by kayak or on foot, and there is tarpon fishing in nearby Manglar Bay. For your comfort and enjoyment each house also includes ceiling fans in each room, beach chairs, kayaks (2 singles, 1 double), lifejackets, high speed wi-fi, videos, CD’s, local TV, and books.

When we bought this property, it had one house, Casa la Pela. After spending a month in this one house with our daughter, her husband, their 3 children and babysitter, we decided to build a second house on the property. Both houses are the same size and both have a large veranda with spectacular views of the bay and the Caribbean, but they differ in detail. Whereas Casa la Pela is designed to house a whole family (2 kings, 4 twins), our second house, Casa Viento Alisio, is designed for one or two couples, with fewer and larger rooms. Both houses are available for rent. The calendar shows availability for Casa La Pela. Information for Casa Viento Alisio is available on request.

Marc Shulman purchased this house in 2004

We chose this property because of its hillside siting above the water, its exposure to the steady breeze of the Trade Winds, and the extraordinary views that extend close-up from Pela Bay to St Thomas in the distance. We swim from our shore every day. With the kayaks we venture farther, searching out the turtles, rays and birds.

EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the smaller house. Plenty of room for 4 including 2 teenagers. The house was in immaculate condition and was FULLY equipped. The view of the bay and St Thomas in the distance was spectacular. Having the kayaks was a big attraction and we used them a lot. Michelle met us at the Jeep rental and gave as a thorough orientation to the island, including a stop at the market and leading us to the house. We would stay here again and highly recommend this property. Everything on the island is an easy drive from the house and the breeze blows all day.

LOVELY VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property a few years ago and had been looking forward to our return. Indeed, it was even better this time. As ever, the property is a quiet, beautiful sanctuary, and we spent much of the time on site, kayaking, swimming or reading on the veranda. The amenities -- most notably the restaurants -- in town have improved a notch.

IDYLLIC SPOT

This is the third year that I have vacationed in Casa la Pela. I come for the view, the breeze, access to the bay and the privacy, and I have a great time.

ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING.

  • 5 of 5
The property is definitely STUNNING in every sense of the word! If you are looking for privacy, this is the place for you. The view from the deck is breathtaking and we had most of our meals there. All four bed rooms are very clean and comfortable. The kayaks are an added bonus too. We have been back from our vacation for at least a month now and never a day passed where we didn't wish we were back in paradise again.....

LOVELY SPOT TO RELAX WITH A PERFECT BREEZE

  • 5 of 5
This property faces east, and each morning the sun would rise to reveal the fabulous view across the Caribbean to St Thomas. Some days we stayed on the property to kayak or swim. Other days we took in the major attractions of Culebra: the beaches, the snorkeling and the funky town. The house is well equipped; the covered veranda catches the breeze and sends it through the house, so we were always at a very comfortable 80o.

ABSOLUTELY IDYLLIC

  • 5 of 5
This house was excellent and delightful in all respects. We swam off the waterfront, kyaked off the waterfront, went to a small island and walked up the hill for the scenery. The ocean breeze is right from the front so the ocean breezes bathed us all day and night. We saw St Thomas's mountain in the distance during the day and at night looked out on the twinkling lights of St Thomas. The veranda was great for reading, eating breakfast, and just gazing out over the spectacular view. We rented a Carlos Jeep and drove to all the beaches for walks and snorkeling and swiming. We could not have been happier. The Owners are enormously helpful with all sorts of helpful hints from how to travel to and from, what to bring and things to see and do. They also know all the restaurants and guided us well! This property is pristine clean, well maintained and the descriptions are precise. We would recommded this to friends and have done so.
We love this island Paradise.

Culebra is a quiet, relatively undeveloped island with all the aquatic activities and a good but limited selection of restaurants and grocery stores. Culebra has the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean: Playas Zoni, Flamenco, Tamarindo are accessed by paved roads; other beaches, such as Carlos Rosario and Brava are accessible only on foot or by water and as expected are still present their natural, untouched beauty.
