Culebra house description

Quiet, peaceful, and secluded, yet only a 3 minute drive to Zoni Beach and a 10 minutes to town; our fully-equipped 2 bedroom house is a wonderful retreat from the hustle of typical resort settings. Why share a house, or stay in an apartment when you can enjoy the privacy of a whole house(open floor plan/high ceilings) to yourselves! The house is surrounded by thousands of acres of virgin countryside and hiking trails, with an ocean view from the upper part of its one acre parcel. Nearby Zoni Beach is incredible. and uncrowded: many times during the week we are the only ones on a one mile long soft white sand beach with gentle trade winds swaying green coco palms, and crystal clear turquoise waters. The snorkeling and diving on Culebra is some of the best in the Caribbean. For debit card use on lodging a $50 fully refundable damage deposit is required, to be debited prior to occupancy. See 'further details' below for information regarding renting our 4 door, 4 wheel drive SUV.


Sport Utility Vehicle Rental: You can rent our Mitsubishi Montero 4 door, 4 wheel drive for $55 per day for 5 people or less, and $65 per day for 6 people or more. $100 gas deposit is required on vehicle rental. A credit card (no debit cards), automobile liability insurance, and a driver's license is required for the vehicle rental. Our house and vehicle manager Rogelio (a local who speaks spanish and English) will provide transportation to and from the ferry or airport when you rent the Montero for each day of your stay.

                                    Thank you so much Tom. Our stay was better than expected. Your place has a very nice beach house setting and our family was very comfortable. The beaches were beautiful and having the SUV available was a definite PLUS. Thank you Victor for being so nice to us. You were a great guide during our stay. We look forward in booking again soon. Thanks Again. Luis

                                    Our family of five really enjoyed this house in Culebra. It is easy to get to from the airport and is very close to Zoni beach. There was plenty of sleeping space and we cooked our own food. The house had all the basics that we needed and was very peaceful at night - just what we were looking for. There were a few things that needed minor repairs, but overall it was well maintained. We rented the car that came with the house. It worked fine but was a bit worse for wear. Next time we will probably research renting from one of the other companies on the island. We spent our days at Zoni, Flamenco, and Casa Rosario beaches enjoying the sun, swimming, and snorkeling. It was our first visit to the island and the beaches are fantastic! We would highly recommend this property to anyone with a family looking for a quiet place to get away.

                                    This is a great basic house close to Zoni beach and perfect for a family. There was plenty of room for our 3 person family and another couple (although be aware that the 2nd bedroom is really a bed divided by curtains at nighttime), the outdoor patio was great, and the breeze at evening was fantastic. Rogelio was available if needed, but otherwise we had no interruptions and had a great time - very easy to connect with Tom (owner) and Rogelio (property manager). Definitely a great option on Culebra, and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a secluded homestead on the eastern part of the island.

                                    This house was a dream come true. It is nested in the middle of a one acre plot of land, making it secluded but not too far from town. Inside it is open and charming. It has everything one needs to stay for weeks ! It is also very close to Zoni beach which is the most amazing beach on the island. Thanks

                                    My father, my brother and I stayed in this amazing house for two days and we wished we could have stayed a whole week. It is nested in a one acre plot away from town yet not too far from it, but it really lets you experience the flora of the island and it's calm vibe. It was only a minute away by car to Zoni Beach, which for us is the most amazing beach in the island. We are already planning our next visit. Thanks!

                                    We stayed at Zoni Retreat on a friend's recommendation. We were very happy with the house. The location was quiet and well kept. We were just a few minute drive from Zoni Beach and a few more minutes to town. The manager was very pleasant. The neighbor was very friendly and helpful as well. We are a family of 4 and then house was perfect for us.

                                    The property is prefect for a family hang out. Very peaceful. Layout of the house is really good. Our ferry ride was rough for some of us, but our pleasant welcoming getting to the property over come that experience. There were some minors house cleaning things that could of been worked on prior of arriving, however I did not address it due to they were like I said minor and we were able to take care of some of it. Overall it was a great experience! : ) Zoni Beach is beautiful and breathtaking. .. just literally 5 minutes to get the by car. Ocean was somewhat rough ... . Didn't get in. We prefer Flamenco.

                                    We loved Zoni Retreat! It is a charming Island style cottage in a peaceful setting, and much nicer than we anticipated. It was neat and clean when we arrived and we were quite comfortable especially with the air conditioning. There were two of us (sisters) and we each had our own queen size bed. The cottage has wifi and Dish Network TV, and even a cell signal although that was a bit weak. The shower temperature, as typical on the island, is tepid but welcome in such a hot climate; we never needed to engage the hot water heater. We spent our time out and about on the island and were happy to come home to a full kitchen where we made our meals and drinks. We shopped at one of the small markets - the best one is near the gas station in town - for all our food, and also used condiments in the fridge and pantry that previous visitors had left. We used the rental car available which was a serviceable island vehicle; Rogelio, the local manager, picked us up at the airport when we arrived and we left the car at the airport for him when we left. We explored around the island which is quite small and were glad of the SUV's high clearance as many of the roads are rough or dirt. Flamenco beach is a must - gorgeous beach and warm clear water for swimming. Zoni beach is close by and we were literally the only people on the beach during two of our visits to it - awesome! We would stay at Zoni Retreat again.

                                    Zoni Retreat is the perfect place for a couple; or, a small family. Although the cottage (we called it a "cottage" as that was the feel that we had while staying there) doesn't have an ocean view, it is located so close to a fabulous beach, Zoni Beach, that it doesn't matter. As a matter of fact, the Zoni Retreat has the feel of a nice, little, country cottage with plenty of hiking all around and a great neighbor, Victor, who knows exactly where, what, who, and how to get to everything that you want to do. Rogelio, the property manager, was quick to take care of any of the little things that might need to be done. And, as well, the property was clean and inviting when we arrived. Having the option of the car included was a plus; especially when renting from any of the rental agencies on the Island would cost you an "arm-and-a-leg". It was nice staying "out-of-town" and the reality is that it's only about 10 minutes to town (5.2 miles); 5 minutes to Zoni Beach; and, only 15 minutes to Flamenco Beach. As I had said, 'It is a perfect place for a couple' with a large, open living room, dining room/office space area, and roomy kitchen. The second bed is great for laying out your gear. And, the bathroom is clean and roomy. Also, having a washer was terrific as well. The little patio at the front of the "cottage" is a nice quiet place for star-gazing and just plain "hanging-out" after a long day on the beach or in the water. It isn't sumptious; but, rather, comfortable, affordable, and relaxing. I would recommend Zoni Retreat to any of my friends.

                                    My family (wife and two daughters) loved our stay. The home was clean and comfortable. Just what we needed. So close to Zoni Beach that we got up and drove the (less than) one mile for a sunrise, and had the beach to ourselves. Still convenient to town, and the option of renting the SUV was much appreciated. I would definitely recommend. Communication with the owner was a breeze, and Rogelio, the property manager, welcomed us at the airport and gave us a quick tour of the town and pointed out the roads we would need to know. We would definitely go back.

                                  Year Purchased: 2006

                                  About the owner: My wife, son, and I live in Rogue Valley Oregon where I am involved in piano sales and service and also real estate construction. We love Culebra and visit there as often as we can, usually twice a year.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Culebra:
                                  After visiting Culebra on our wedding anniversary, we knew we wanted to return and live like locals. We found our place and remodeled to double the size of it. We use it as a second home and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
