About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)
This custom designed and furnished modern home is one of a handful of exclusive high-end rental properties available on the island. It is beautifully situated to enjoy the cool breezes and magnificent Culebra rainbows while giving you stunning views of one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean from nearly a thousand square feet of covered veranda offering chaise lounges and a hammock. Casa Sueno is furnished with one-of-a-kind Latin American antiques and hand-crafted hardwood furniture designed for the home by Puerto Rico’s top wood craftsman.
The master suite (which has a Queen bed) provides a breathtaking view of the ocean from the moment you wake up. The master bathroom is unlike any other. The shower overlooks the bay and a private patio and garden. Open the floor-to-ceiling glass doors of the shower and enjoy the island breeze as warm water flows over you.
The great room of the main building is anchored by a fully equipped modern kitchen with new appliances and bar seating around the cooking island, all overlooking the water and comfortable dining room and living room seating. Two plush full-size futons provide wonderful afternoon nap sites or can comfortably function as beds.
The second building offers two more bedrooms, a full-size bed in one and two twins in the other, which share a nicely-appointed bathroom. Laundry facilities are available for rentals of a week and longer.
The second building is NOT rented separately from the first. It is used by larger groups as it has two additional bedrooms and a bathroom.
Between the two buildings is a peaceful and beautifully landscaped enclosed courtyard, complete with a tropical water feature, designed and crafted by one of Puerto Rico's finest landscape architects. A courtyard bar area opens from the kitchen, allowing people in the kitchen to chat comfortably with those enjoying the serenity of the garden.
In the parking area is an outside shower, which allows you to rinse off before entering the home. Adjacent is a fish-cleaning station for anglers who have caught dinner.
Throughout Casa Sueno, imported Italian and Latin American ceramic tiles grace the floors and the bathrooms. Designer lighting, inside and out, along with unique fans in every room complete the picture of a comfortable island retreat. Beach chairs, coolers and beach towels help make visits to nearby beaches complete. A private dock owned by area property owners is minutes away and provides a delightful venue for sunset cocktails as well as dockage for Casa Sueno’s guests with boats.
The house is equipped with wireless high-speed satellite internet service, satellite television, all new appliances, a security gate and a new generator that automatically engages if island power is lost, ensuring a comfortable stay. All three bedrooms have air conditioners, though they are rarely needed given Casa Sueno’s location on top of a hill, which guarantees delightful breezes coming through the home from any direction. A gate at the bottom of the driveway promises absolute privacy.
This exclusive property is just two or three minutes from Zoni Beach, one of Culebra’s favorite spots and less than ten minutes - primarily through bird sanctuaries – from town and from famous Playa Flamenco.
Casa Sueno is the ideal location for couples looking for a quiet secluded spot and luxury, as well as for families who desire space and comfort. Three couples would also be quite comfortable.
All rentals are for a minimum of FOUR nights. NO exceptions.
To rent this property, a 50% rental deposit is due if the date is more than a month away. Full payment is due a month out. I will refund half of the payment if the reservation is cancelled before two weeks of the stay.

My Standard Rate
4 night min stay
Rates are based on 2 guests; add $150 per night, per additional guest
Additional information about rental rates
- Insurance $89
- Tax Rate 7%
For more than two people, the cost is ONLY $150 per night for up to four ADDITIONAL guests total, not that much per person. The template on this website does not allow me to include that.
There is tax of 7 percent, and payment processing fee that goes to the website company. I will discuss this with you upon you placing a reservation request.
Despite what the website options are, I do not REQUIRE two payments. I just offer that option.... 50 percent at time of booking if it is at least 30 days out. And the other 50 before 30 days of the rental. I DO appreciate just one payment in full, however. It's a lot easier to track.
Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed.
Owner's cancellation policy:
50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.
100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.

Zoni Beach, which is about a mile away from my house, is where Leatherback turtles nest in great number every year. Depending on when guests are on island, you can see new nests OR, if you get up very early, you might catch some baby turtles making their way to the sea. Look but don't touch! They are protected.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: I am a former international journalist who spent ten years with CNN and ten with NBC News. I was a war correspondent as well as CNN National Correspondent. I helped launch and manage CNN en Espanol, and was then Vice President of CNN. I have travelled to over 150 countries and chose Culebra for my Dream House (Casa Sueno) because it is such a special island.
Why the Owner Chose Fraile, Culebra, Puerto Rico:
I found this property in 1997, designed the house myself after renting other properties (keeping good ideas and tossing bad ones) and oversaw the construction of my Dream Home. I LOVE that it overlooks such a beautiful bay with views of the US Virgin Islands on clear days... and is so remote and private.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
On any given day you will see amazing birds... Kestrels and Red Tailed Hawks nest on the property. A large percentage of Culebra is protected by US Fish and Wildlife. The beaches are pristine as no construction is allowed on them... See turtles and tarpon rolling from my balcony! Early mornings I love to walk along Zoni Beach, about a mile away. During the summer this often means finding Leatherback turtle nests from the night before...OR two months later, watching the tiny turtles come out of their eggs and make their way to the water.
