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. The 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. The house has 4 bedrooms (2 with kings, 2 with twins), 2 full baths and a modern. The modern kitchen, which opens to the living room and dining area 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 the house also includes ceiling fans in each room, beach chairs, kayaks (2 singles, 1 double), lifejackets, high speed wi-fi, videos, CD’s, TV, and books.

The minimum rental period is one week.

About Marc Shulman

We bought this property as a vacation home for the three generations of our family. As the family expanded, we built a second house at the other end of the property, and now rent the first house during the months when our children and grandchildren are busy with other activities.

Marc Shulman purchased this house in 2004

Why Marc Shulman chose Culebra

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.

Glorious

  • 5 of 5

My 2 teenage daughters and I enjoyed a week here. Spectacular views, spent much time on the veranda. Kayaked in the bay down in front of the house. A bit steep hiking down. Not a sand beach but very shallow reef where the kayaks are put in. Very comfy pillows and bed. Would def come back to this rental. The rental agency guided us to the property as it is off road and probably difficult to find by yourself. Great breeze and birds chirping. Very close to Zoni beach. Need a jeep to reach the property. Very secluded. Loved the collection of old newsletters about the island and the history and culture.

10 days in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time that we vacationed on Culebra, but the first time on a waterfront property at the "East End". The vista to the east looking across the Caribbean to St Thomas is spectacular. The house is simply furnished but very comfortable, and the steady breeze of the Trade Winds keeps the house at the perfect temperature. Many days we never left the property and swam, fished and kayaked in Pela Bay just below the house.

Old school Caribbean

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 kids (ages 5 and 8) rented this property in mid-April to escape chilly New England. We loved the views, the breezes, and the home. The pictures supplied are accurate. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and utensils. Of course, you need to buy food when you arrive on the island, but Michelle will help you. The owners live next door and are lovely people.

A Culebra vacation isn't for everyone, but if you are reading this, you probably want to get off the beaten path. The relaxed, slow, minimally developed island was exactly what we were looking for.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
