My husband is originally from Puerto Rico but went to school in California where he and I met and now reside. We discovered Culebra on one of our trips to Puerto Rico. As it turns out, Carlos’ grandfather was a trader/explorer and sailed the Caribbean frequenting our little bay as a resting spot. (The history of his sailboat, the Pocahontas, can be found in the Culebra museum.) Carlos has had a deep connection to this magical place ever since he was a boy in Puerto Rico. Unique fact: our children all played competitive water polo and two of our daughters are gold medalists from the London Olympics; they chose to celebrate their win here in Culebra!

Carlos and Peggy Steffens purchased this house in 2009

This property offers breathtaking views of Las Pelas Bay, Culebrita and St.Thomas. You will see the most beautiful colors in the water as the sun,cloud and occasional rain pass over, it is absolutely mesmerizing. Our peninsula is called Punto del Viento for the constant winds that keep it cool and refreshing even in the hottest tropical weather. We love to swim and love the large lap pool. We love to boat, kayak, snorkel, paddle board and our little bay is the perfect playground. Plus Culebrita is a quick boat ride away and Zoni beach just minutes away by car. Culebra is a beautiful wildlife refuge with mangroves and turtle nesting sites, and we are surrounded by trails for exploring. In this tropical island, who would have thought we could find cacti? Culebra offers so many treasures to discover.

We built our home to take advantage of these beautiful views, to provide a place of relaxation, healthy living and adventure. We have one of the largest pools on the island and enjoy refreshing after long day in sun. We love our porch for the mesmerizing views of St Thomas, for the constantly changing colors of the water and for the most amazing star gazing. We love our proximity to all kinds of nature, the envigorating walk to Zoni, the breezes during our yoga sessions on the porch, the quick boat ride to Culebrita and the peace and serenity that is Pura Vida.

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 out of 5
This is a "home" and not a house! My daughters (ages 11 and 8) loved our stay in Culebra. Our home base made this visit an experience. The views, the cleanliness, the layout of the house, the pool, the caretaker and last but not least the owners who ensure that staying in their home is an experience to realize. We could always go off for a busy day of fun knowing that we will return to a comfortable place to relax. Clean and spacious bathrooms along with a big, fully equipped kitchen were only some of the great amenities. Air conditioning in the bedrooms made sleeping ideal. Did I mention the views?? Spectacular!! Privacy? Total!! This is THE place to stay on Culebra!!

Is this heaven?

  • 5 out of 5
As we drove up to the property, all six of us, (yes, we crammed six into a jeep), commented at the same time, "Oh, my God!"
Words cannot describe the view from this property. Mountains, blue ocean, islands, sailboats. All this within a quiet peaceful surrounding. We felt so relaxed and safe. We basically had the mountain to ourselves.
This property is bug free, extraordinarily clean, and well maintained. No hot water issues. Everything worked well. The pool was clean and welcoming.
I'm really trying hard to find a negative about this property...I can't. I left with a new appreciation and respect for natures beauty.
What a show we had one night. The stars were so plentiful and bright we turned the outside lights off and talked of Columbus's voyage to the new world. While having rum punches of course.
Come to think of it I did find one thing hard to do while on the property... close my eyes.
BTW, take your cooler, snorkel and fins and make the trip to culebrita for the day. Ahhhhhh, heaven.

Pura Vida- Pure Life - Real Living - Paradise!

  • 5 out of 5
Pura Vida is the perfect name for this property: “Pure Life”, “take it easy”, “this is life”, “simple life”. This is a beautiful property where you can have the time of your life. The pool is amazing and the views are so spectacular, from anywhere on the property, it’s hard to describe them with words. Everything you need is in the house to make your stay comfortable. We spent every evening winding down on the porch enjoying the breeze. The rocking chairs were perfect. The amazing beaches are only a few minutes drive from the house. We visited five of the beaches on the island, and snorkeled at Tamarindo. Excellent!

The property owner was very easy to work with, helpful and informative.

This property was so nice we never wanted to leave. I would consider Pura Vida one of the best properties and location on the island. I highly recommend this home to anyone planning a stay on Culebra. Paradise!

Gorgeous location, elegant house!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our stay at Pura Vida and are already talking about returning. We've rented quite a few houses over the years, but this one doesn't feel like a rental. It's a beautiful, bright and airy house with spectacular views that is perfectly equipped which everything from decent knives, to great linens to beach chairs and umbrellas.

Great experience with professional attention.

  • 5 out of 5
This property is exceptional. There really aren't words for the quality and views you will find. The pool area is better than any high end resort. Grab your swimsuit, bring a couple of friends and have the time of your life.

How relaxing to wind down sitting on the porch reading a book and having total peace and quiet. Manuel, the property manager was wonderful. He was precise and to the point showing all of the property specifics. He was more than happy to help us with directions and suggestions to make our stay comfortable.

If there were more stars available than five, you can bet I would gladly give them. The owners of the property were wonderful to do business with. Perfection!
