About the Property

Spectacular views, steady cooling breezes, direct access to Pela Bay

Waterfront - Picture perfect Caribbean views and a steady, cooling breeze, located on a 5 acre property, 4 miles from town and 2 miles from Zoni Beach. The house features a large (~700 sq ft) veranda overlooking Almodovar and Manglar Bays (aka Pela Bay), with panoramic views to Culebrita, Sail Rock and St Thomas to the east. The house has 4 bedrooms (2 with kings, 2 with twins), 2 full baths. The modern kitchen, which opens to the living room and dining area provides a full set of appliances for easy cooking, or you can barbecue on the patio.

From the house, 70 feet above the ocean, an easy 80 yard trail leads down to the protected Pela Bay, where you can swim and snorkel or take the kayaks to explore the small nearby islands and many inlets. For the sport fishermen, Pela Bay also includes expansive flats for bone fishing, which you can access by kayak or on foot, and there is tarpon fishing in nearby Manglar Bay. For your comfort and enjoyment the house also includes ceiling fans in each room, beach chairs, kayaks (2 singles, 1 double), lifejackets, high speed wi-fi, videos, CD’s, TV, and books.

Car: Necessary

Culebra is a quiet, relatively undeveloped island with all the aquatic activities and a good but limited selection of restaurants and grocery stores. Culebra has the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean: Playas Zoni, Flamenco, Tamarindo are accessed by paved roads; other beaches, such as Carlos Rosario and Brava are accessible only on foot or by water and as expected are still present their natural, untouched beauty.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: We bought this property as a vacation home for the three generations of our family. As the family expanded, we built a second house at the other end of the property, and now rent the first house during the months when our children and grandchildren are busy with other activities.

Why Fraile, Culebra, Puerto Rico:
We chose this property because of its hillside siting above the water, its exposure to the steady breeze of the Trade Winds, and the extraordinary views that extend close-up from Pela Bay to St Thomas in the distance. We swim from our shore every day. With the kayaks we venture farther, searching out the turtles, rays and birds.
