Surrounded by partially shaded decks and interesting succulent gardens. Big views include entrance to the harbor, Dakity Reef, Fulladoza Bay and the Caribbean Sea . On clear days, you will see, the mountains of St. Croix on the horizon. The night lights of St. Thomas can be seen peeking through the hills to the east. Mesmerizing views are interrupted by occasional visits of one of the many birds that wing by. Hummingbirds, hibiscus, hammock.. all you need to kick back and relax. Full moon rises over the bay are spectacular. Star gazers will not be disappointed on moonless nights. Early birds can catch the sunrise. Owners live on island but not on property, allowing complete privacy. Private, peaceful, quiet and a nature photographer's dream.
Further description....: Lazy days, kick back, read and enjoy the sights from your perch on the hillside. Enjoy peace & tranquility surrounded by picturesque activity.

While on Culebra we live on our houseboat on Fulladoza Bay. We have been visiting Culebra since the mid 1980s and have been winter residents since the early 1990s. Like everywhere there have been many changes over the years, however Culebra has changed slowly and has a wonderful way of attracting very nice and special new and repeat visitors.
Jane or George purchased this house in 2000
Lovely private setting with fabulous views and soothing breezes, small dipping pool, large decks and beautiful gardens. Quiet, peaceful, a great get-away.
Off the road and very private with incredible views and fabulous breezes. Large and interesting gardens invite a large variety of birds, sun, shade and privacy.
Brisas del Mar was so much more than we expected. Everything you could possibly need and more. Jane & George were wonderful and always willing to help with a question or suggestion. House is immaculate and the attention to detail in the landscaping & decorative accents is quite clever and lovely. We plan to return as frequently as time and fortune allow.
Jane and George are wonderful hosts who live nearby, and personally welcome you to this special property. Perched high on a hill with views of the nearby bay, this home is quite comfortable as a base to visit Culebra, and is a short drive to the nearby town center. We would definitely plan to return here for another visit. One note, the price of these superb views is a rather steep drive up (which also contributes to privacy), so a 4wd vehicle is required, but this is a good idea for other back roads on Culebra in any case. And the views are definitely worth a drive up the hill.
My partner and I had a wonderful stay here last month! To start off the driveway did look a little intimidating (it's gravel and very steep), but our jeep had no problems getting up it. The cottage itself is very homey and comfortable. The rooms are quite large, in fact the kitchen is huge. There's no tv but there is wifi and and a great selection of movies and we watched quite a few of them. Being from the midwest where water conservation isn't an issue, we did have to watch our usage there, since the water is stored in cisterns (a good learning experience). The plantings all around the house are amazing!! We spent many an hour, just roaming around looking at them (this place should be on a garden tour). While the view from the deck is wonderful, we found to the right, is a side yard with an unobstructed view of the bay below. Sipping a cocktail out there, while watching the moon rise is something I'll never forget...the whole setting is quite magical! There's a lovely wading pool in the back, but we spent so much time at the beaches (especially Zoni), that we didn't use the pool at all...next time! Culebra is such a special place and so is this cottage...just can't wait to return!!
My wife and I just returned from eleven wonderful nights at Brisas Del Mar. This property, especially the outdoor spaces, is the most breathtaking we've experienced. From watching the sunrise, to star gazing, every part of the day provides an opportunity to experience nature's beauty. The tropical landscaping is maintained by the owners and is a wonder to behold. The large shaded front porch is the perfect place the watch the ever-changing colors of the bay and sea below.
If you're a beach lover Culebra is a "must" place to visit. Flamenco, Zoni, and Carlos Rosario are the best we've seen in our tropical travels.
George and Jane ( the owners) live nearby and helped make the entire stay a pleasure. We quickly felt at home at the house and island. What a great trip!
We spent 5 wonderful nights at George and Jane's place. The best thing about the property is the outdoor space -- the huge porch, the views, the amazing trees and flowers and detailed landscaping. George and Jane were great hosts, friendly, relaxed and helpful, full of interesting stories and info about the island. After a few days of relaxed island living, you'll want to move in!
We were looking for a get-away that was beautiful, tropical, and secluded. We found that, and more at Brisa del Mar.Simply put, we loved the house. Mornings on the deck, having our breakfast and taking in the beautiful harbor view was one of our favorite activities. We enjoyed Zoni beach the best, because of the seclusion. After the beach, we would go onto the dipping pool, which was relaxation personified. The tropical breezes and beautiful landscaping made an early evening in the dipping pool indescribable. Then we would either cook dinner in, and have it on the deck, or go out to one of the restaurants in town. We also have to give kudos to Jane and George for their cd collection, availability, and attention to detail! We cannot wait to return this time next year! Judy and Louis
