About the property

The house sits on 5 acres on a hill. There are three bungalows lined north to south to catch the trade winds. The central bungalow houses the kitchen, living room, laundry and a half bath. There is a kid's outdoor shower on the deck. The kitchen's island seats six. Granite counters. The dining table sits out on the deck that surrounds all bungalows. The north and south bungalows have 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom each, one with a queen size bed and the other with four twin beds. In case it's too hot, the bedrooms are fully air conditioned. The pool 10mx5m sits 10m out to the west and lower than the house. This protects it from the prevailing winds. There are four teak lounge chairs and umbrellas on the pool deck. There's also an outdoor shower. The view to the east is the Caribbean Sea and to the west Ensenada Honda, the bay. There are beach chairs, cooler and boogie boards in the carport.

About Jimmy Rodriguez

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, attended university and grad school in the US and worked for a few years in Philadelphia and New York. My wife is from Mallorca, Spain. We live in Old San Juan in a 400 year old spanish colonial we restored four years ago. We have been blessed with two children, now 17 and 19, that spent a lot of time in Culebra when they were younger. We have two wonderful Tibetan Terriers that enjoy Culebra as much as we do.

Jimmy Rodriguez purchased this house in 2001

Why Jimmy Rodriguez chose Fraile

We love Culebra for the overall beauty of the place, the lack of development and the privacy. We love it when we go to the beach and see hardly anyone during the day. We love to sit out on the deck in the morning, drinking coffee, enjoying the view and just listening to the birds sing. At night, we love to turn off all the lights and stare at the Milky Way.

What makes this house unique

We designed and built this house in the traditional Caribbean way: cottages with high ceilings, storm shutters, coral stone floors, wooden decks and vibrant colors. We planted lots of palm trees and oleander along the front of the house. We set the pool, 10mx4m, to the west of the house to protect it from the trade-winds.

fFue excepcional. La casa está limpia y es tal como se presenta en el site. Para nosotros fue ideal porque estamos divorciados y es la última semana de mi hija en Puerto Rico antes de irse para college. Ella quería ir a culebla con las amigas. La casa fue perfecta por estar dividida en bungalows, estuvimos todos "juntos pero no revueltos". Sin duda volveré y la recomendaré a mis amigos. Gracias

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a little bit of paradise. First off the location is private, and the views are just a wonderful as the pictures. The villa is situated on top of a hill with the ocean view on one side and bay view on the other, with a nice steady breeze. The pool was great for some morning swimming and cooling down after visiting one of the many amazing beaches. Beach time was made better with beach towels, chairs, and cooler provided. The kitchen was very well equipped and we used the BBQ almost every day. The two sleeping villas provided us with privacy and space for our family. Vacationing at this house was a wonderful escape that we highly recommend to anyone.

Vacations in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Amazing experience! This was my second time in this house. Perfect for family and friends getaway. This time we made dinner at the house all the time. There's plenty of space in the kitchen and living room area. The view from both sides of every room is beautiful. Both queen size and bunker beds are really comfortable. Is five minutes away from Zoni beach (one of my favorites in Culebra). You get in love with this place that you barely want to leave! Thank you Jimmy for another wonderful time! I would definitely come back soon.

Colorful piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This colorful piece of paradise was our headquarters in Culebra for the last week of July 2016. We were 2 families of 4. We shared the living area, and each family had the privacy of their own bungalow with their own bathroom.

We felt very close to nature, my daughter even spotted a reindeer on our first morning there. We played games, went to Culebra's amazing snorkeling beaches, spent time at the pool in the afternoons...we had quality family time.

Cooking is a lovely experience with the refreshing tropical breezes from north to south. Beach towels and chairs which were essential for our trip were included.

Jimmy, thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. We would love to return and would recommend the experience to friends.
