Culebra house description

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, well, EVERYTHING! Twenty-five acres of privacy, rolling down to a lagoon which backs onto fabulous Zoni Beach - where it is crowded if six people lie on its mile of perfect sand. Watch ships and sailboats cruise by. See pelicans dive in azure waters -- waters so blue, so pristine you thought it was only a dream.

At night, the distant twinkling of the Virgin Islands pales below the clearest star lit Milky Way. Zip...a shooting star flashes by and your wish is full-filled: You are in the Caribbean of Hemingway...of Belafonte... of Ricky Ricardo! It's the Caribbean of yesteryear. Unhurried. Undeveloped. Unreal!

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.

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.

Culebra is what the Caribbean was 40 years ago. Magazines call it Hemingwayesque. Why? Because it is about anti-chic... no glitz. No mega resorts... just beaches, coral reefs, wildlife sanctuaries, more beaches, scuba, snorkelling, sailing, surfing, wind surfing, bone fishing, marlin fishing, kayaking... kite-surfing...and more beaches. The Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are 15 miles away in either direction. Access is easy via airplane or ferry.

Four miles distant from the house is the booming town of Culebra - with 2000 souls, 10 bars, 8 restaurants, four markets, two dance halls, and countless chickens! Nightlife is surprisingly vibrant - until 11 p.m. Or stay home at Casa Zoni, blend up a rum drink, kick off your flip-flops, and dance under the stars...

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1989

                          About the owner: We love Culebra because of it's one of the last un-spoilt places on earth! It's like the caribbean of yesteryear. It's Natural. It's so laid back it is Anti Chic -- which is really cool. No wannabes here. We like the good people and the lack of rampant development. Most importantly, it has some of the best watersports in the entire Caribbean...good surfing, great snorkelling, good scuba, great sailing,etc. etc. and the hikes around the house are spectaular 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.

                          Why the Owner Chose Culebra:
                          Culebra is the Caribbean of Yesteryear... no glitz... no glamour... no high rise hotels... lots of chickens. Hemingwayesque. It's like Key West before it became Key West. Wander round town with your cocktail in hand... wander around some obscure beaches with your bathing suit on... or not.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Outrageous views. Solitude. The drama of weather: towering clouds and and two oceans meeting right out front. Thunderstorms off in the distance. Loud reggae and Happy Hour. Dipping in the pool. Playing with the kids in the shade of the garden. Snorkelling with friends. Surfing alone. And often... A mile long beach with 3 other people -- all of whom are my family.
