About Michelle Plaia

We are a family of four from Boston. Culebra has become our place for relaxing and renewing. We are invested in making your vacation as ideal as possible.

Michelle Plaia purchased this villa in 2013

Why Michelle Plaia chose Fraile

We have traveled extensively in the Caribbean and fell in love with Culebra because unlike the rest of the Caribbean, Culebra remains largely undeveloped,with pristine, uncrowded beaches and authentic, quiet, rustic and safe island life.

What makes this villa unique

Authentic and funky Caribbean experience. Speaking Spanish is a plus, but certainly not required. The island is affordable by Caribbean standards and no passport is needed for U.S. residents.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed hear for a week for my moms 70th birthday. The rental is handled by culebra reality. My mom had a few mis communications with the Realtor but it all worked out in the long run. The place was clean and better in person then the pictures. The kitchen was just re done and the dishwasher was not working but that was no big deal. Only real issue is that the screens are not the best and the bugs the week we were there were pretty bad on the whole island. The pool was great and well kept and the best part is its location to Zoni beach. Its one of the closest houses to the best beach in culebra. Highly recommended for large families.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review of Casa Aquabella. In addition to the kitchen renovation, we continue to work on improvements. We also like a mosquito free home. We have replaced all the screened doors. We apologize for the broken dishwasher. Although a new Bosch, the D/W had an unexpected electrical problem that was not able to be repaired; a new D/W has been installed. Thank you for visiting Casa Aquabella.

Second Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Casa Aquabella in January, 2014. We had a great time body surfing at Flamenco Beach, snorkling at Tamarindo and exploring the island's other beaches. We really enjoyed going to the market and eating at the restaurants in the funky but fun town of Dewey. Casa AquaBella was perfect for us. The house itself is well appointed and clean, the master suite is spectacular with its own deck and view of the Caribbean, and the pool hit the spot after a day at one of the many beaches. The open living space is very comfortable and has a great sound system; my ipod worked perfectly. The kitchen was easy to cook in and amply supplied with good quality pots, pans and utensils. By the end of our 10 days, we were so relaxed that we began to spend time just hanging out by the pool in the lovely garden, reading, gazing at the sea and strolling down to beautiful Zoni beach for a swim. Over the years, we have rented many houses in the Caribbean on many different islands. We have finally found a piece of paradise and can't wait to return.

We were just two on this trip, but the house is large enough and has enough private space to accommodate a large family or group. Maybe next time.
