Culebra house description
Culebra is the essence of the 'manana' lifestyle. Nothing happens quickly here, unless it is falling in love with being in the moment. You can dress way down in Culebra: shorts and flip flops are de rigueur nearly everywhere.
There are unrivaled ocean views from this brand new, custom designed home 250 yards above and just a few minute walk to the justifiably famous Zoni Beach. You can consider this mile long, white sand beach crowded if you share it with 20 other beach goers. Villa Solano is ideally located for a full day at the beach, a quick dip anytime or just relaxing and enjoying the views.
Sunrise over St. Thomas is breathtaking. During the day you will see islands of every size and may even spot sea turtles or humpback whales from our deck. At night the lights of St. Thomas and passing cruise ships are trumped only by the twinkling of stars and the Caribbean Sea made silver by the moon.
The open design of the house features 18' tall ceilings, large door openings and louvered windows to take advantage of the cooling trade winds. Two large and private bedrooms, at opposite ends of the house, have queen beds. Two full baths have custom mahogany and granite vanities and spacious showers surrounded by glass. The living area has comfortable furniture and good lighting. You can eat in the dining area, belly up to the mahogany eating counter or dine al fresco at the terrace dining table. The well equipped gourmet kitchen has custom mahogany cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Of course there is a blender! The inside living space flows seamlessly through large doors onto wide, tiled and covered terraces on three sides of the main house. Here you will find lounge chairs for napping and rockers for reading, admiring the view or doing exactly nothing.
You will need to leave Villa Solano eventually, even if it is just to replenish your pina colada supplies. Town is six miles away. There you will find several small but amazingly well stocked grocery stores, great Puerto Rican food, a few bars, conga music on Saturday night and surprisingly good pizza. You will find that English is spoken nearly everywhere on the island.

Perfect home base, or just home!
Perfect home base, or just home!
Villa Solano is absolutely THE best place to anchor a Culebra vacation. Luxurious accommodations for 4, with lots of privacy - a bedroom and bath at each end of the house. One could quite happily spend the whole time on the porch, watching the cruise ships come in and out of St Thomas, the kite surfers on nearby Zoni Beach, the breaching whales off to the westward, lots of boats in and out of Culebrita to the east, and all sorts of birds and waves and clouds and stars and changing light. But the rest of the island is so worth exploring too! Nothing is lacking in this excellently-appointed home, including the cooling breezes. And Jerry's Jeeps is the place to go for a car. Culebra has great beaches, good food, challenging hikes, wonderful snorkeling, and plenty of rum and coconut. What more could you want?

Best Vacation in Thirty Years
Best Vacation in Thirty Years
We had been to Culebra before, but this was our first stay at Villa Solana. We were 2 couples, each with a bedroom at an end of the house - great privacy. We found lovely restaurants, but preferred eating in, as shopping was easy, and why waste a really nice gourmet kitchen. There are four choices of eating locations in the house, two of them on the incredible covered porch that looks over Culebrita to St. Thomas. Sleeping was a new experience - the only noises were the surf, and the lovely wind pouring through the louvres and across the bed. You might hear a dog bark, or an airplane engine, or a motorboat - once a day. We visited five great different beaches in a week, but most often settled on Zoni, a 2 minute drive or 8 minute walk. One more thing - in seven days, we didn't meet a single person, Puerto Rican, ex-pat or tourist, who wasn't incredibly friendly and helpful. The lack of fancy resorts has kept the Ugly American from ruining this paradise. Tip - Jerry of Jerry's Jeeps is a GREAT guy to rent from. Ask for one of his older Suzukis, which come in stick shift and automatic. The newer Jeeps are too wide and too garish.

About the owner: We are New Englanders who fell in love with Culebra 25 years ago. She is a gourmet cook and loves the beach. He is a fly fisherman and loves the size of the bone fish and tarpon.
Why the Owner Chose Culebra:
We rented houses all over Culebra for many years before we decided to build our own home. When we designed our home, our goal was to use all the good ideas we had enjoyed but to avoid all the problems we experienced in other rental homes. We think we have done exactly that.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views are spectacular, the beach is incredible and right here, it's quiet, you can wear shorts and a T-shirt day and night. The kitchen is very well equipped.
