Exclusive home with pool and breath taking ocean views..

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms. Extra Apt also available.

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms perfect for 3 couples or 2 couples and 4 kids. (Main House Max is 8 people)

Also available (at extra cost) is a separate apt with 1 queen bed , 4 twin size beds and a full bathroom. Contact Owner for pricing including extra apartment which takes capacity up to 14 people.

Cozy, exclusive, charming and private. With its water front location and the breath taking views, Casa Guava is the type of place that quickly evolves into your home in paradise. Its all about the views, the breeze, the silence, sharing with your group, a refreshing dip in the plunge pool, star gazing on the deck...... all in the privacy of a 5 acre lot. Take the kayaks to the dock below, or drive 7 minutes to the beautiful Zoni Beach. Bring your ipod and spread the music to the kitchen , terrace or pool gazebo.

This is not a ' rental business unit' but the home of a family, a place where taste, simple life, creativity, silence and music all come together.

There are restaurants in town with excellent food, Zacos Tacos for Mexican, El Eden with the best home made dessert you will ever taste, Susie's with the local flavour, or Food Truck with a view sensation Crusty Crab.

Flamenco Beach, considered the #2 top beach in the world by Travel Magazine. Take a water taxi and explore Culebrita, local boaters favorite...or go snorkling in Carlos Rosario beach or Tamarindo Bay. Go scuba diving and explore the sorroundings of Culebra deep blue ocean.

But if you are in the house lying down in the hammock reading a good book, I sincerely doubt you will ever want to leave.

Its the Casa Guava syndrome!

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Location of the house is perfect, privacy with the most beautiful. The owner is very nice, helpful and accommodating, also very easy to get in touch. Housekeepers were amazing too, and the house was absolutely spotless when we arrived. The house is very well maintained with unique and tasteful décor. The garden, veranda and pool area are also beautifully maintained and spotless. Beds are comfortable with nice sheets and towels. The only thing the house is missing is a dishwasher, also would be nice to update cooking pots. But these are minor things, we had a wonderful time and will return!

Owner's Response: Thank-you for such a nice review. We will take a look at the pots and pans issue...I guess one gets used to them and you don't notice what others do. We have been back and forth on getting a dishwasher: the real issue being water conservation in an island with limited water. (that's why we use paper plates most of the time). Glad to hear you enjoyed the decor...most of which is my wife's creation and doing. In the end, seems like you noticed that this is our home, not a "rental unit". Thanks!

Outstanding haven of peace and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights at Casa Guava and absolutely loved it! The house is perched on a breezy hill overlooking the most beautiful and colorful bay in Culebra, las Pelas. It is tastefully decorated with local art by the owner giving it a very homey feel. Having stayed at several houses through VRBO in Culebra and the mainland, what impressed us the most was the cleanliness of the house, quality of the linen, everything in working order, and how well stocked the kitchen was. Would definitely love to stay there again! Five stars!

Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came here with a group of friends and had such a wonderful time. The home is absolutely beautiful and has really attractive decor. It's very accommodating for a large group or family; there are two rooms with queen beds, one with a full futon, one with two bunks (4 twin beds), and a larger private downstairs with a queen bed and four additional bunks. There are two kitchens with all of the necessities to cook a family meal. The air conditioners all worked well, screens were in tact, and a functioning washer/dryer. The view is absolutely incredible and includes multiple outdoor spaces for eating, hammocks, and a pool. We loved our stay and won't hesitate to return.

This is paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Once you get to the house you realize that the pictures in this website are accurate but the house looks even better in person. Every detail of the house and its surroundings is just magical! The house is perfect for big families even with little kids. This is such a peaceful place and the owner was a pleasure to deal with. He was very helpful and accomodating to our needs. We will definetely be going back to Culebra to stay at Casa guava. This house and its views are just enchanting!!! We loved every minute of our stay at Casa guava!!!!!
