|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Quiet, peaceful, and somewhat secluded, yet only a 3 minute drive to Zoni Beach and a 10 minute drive to town, our fully-equipped 2 bedroom (new queen beds and A/C in each bedroom) second floor flat is a wonderful retreat from the hustle of typical resort settings or noisy in-town locations. The large couch pictured in the living room re-configures and fits together to make a double bed which is more comfortable than a convertible sofa bed.
Because of the unique isolated design with separate entrances and parking areas, you will soon forget that there is a similar unit on the first floor below you. We offer an open floor plan, high ceilings, a comfortable living room with wireless internet, Sat flat panel TV, and wall to wall glass patio doors leading to a lanai/balcony with outdoor furniture with great ocean and mountain views on one acre. There are only a few houses in view, and virtually no noise.
The house is located in the exclusive Zoni Beach (eastern) side of the island, surrounded by thousands of acres of virgin countryside and hiking trails, with an ocean view. Nearby Zoni Beach is incredible... and uncrowded: many times during the week we are the only ones on a one mile long soft white sand beach with gentle trade winds swaying green coco palms, and crystal clear turquoise waters.
The snorkeling and diving on Culebra is some of the best in the Caribbean: colorful and pristine. Leatherback turtles nest on the beaches.
Try a day trip to Culebrita, or any other of the 10 smaller keys surrounding Culebra.

My wife, son, and I live in Rogue Valley Oregon where I am involved in piano sales and service and also real estate construction. We love Culebra and visit there as often as we can, usually twice a year.
Tom Lowell purchased this house in 2010
After visiting Culebra on our wedding anniversary, we knew we wanted to return and live like locals. We found our place and then bulit a brand new elevated house on top of the hill. We use it as a second home and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
This property is secluded and quiet, surrounded by thousands of acres of virgin countryside with jeep trails that make good hiking trails. Zoni Beach is 3 minutes away by vehicle and very peaceful (uncrowded) and beautiful. We enjoy barbequing on the ocean view balcony in the evening and observing the brilliant stars one can see without the city lights!
We really, really enjoyed our brief stay on Culebra and at Zoni Breezes Upper. It was perfect for us and provided everything that we needed. The location was very quiet and off the beaten path - perfect for us. We will certainly return someday for a longer stay.
Having spent the first part of our stay in town in a rental with no hot water and very little natural light coming through the windows, we were more than happy with Zoni Breezes Upper. Hot water runs through the tap and the shower has great water pressure. Since the unit occupies the top floor, natural light is abundant--especially helped by the floor-to-ceiling windows in the dining room and living room. The unit is also very breezy. We opened the sliding glass doors as well as the bedroom windows and let the cross breeze do its work; we had no need for the A/C units in the kitchen and bedrooms. The rest of the unit is equally appointed with guests in mind--the beds are comfortable, the flat screen tv with Dish network has many, many channels, the refrigerator is nice and big, and the washing machine was very convenient. You get all of this and more for a very reasonable price! In fact, one night's lodging + car rental (also from Tom) was less than what we paid for a night in town.
With the car (a Mitsubishi Montero), we were able to visit various beaches on the island. Since we are snorkelers, our main objective was to find good snorkeling. Our favorite spots turned out to be Tamarindo Beach (especially near the points) and Punta Soldado (go out near the big boulder on the left side). We saw turtles, stingrays, and lobsters at Tamarindo and a big grouper (we think) hiding near some rocks at Punta Soldado.
Tom was very helpful in answering all of my questions before and during our stay. In addition, Rogelio, the manager, provided great tips on snorkeling spots and restaurants. We look forward to visiting Culebra again and staying at Zoni Breezes Upper!
Very helpful manager and owner. Easy and hassle free to set up and for the duration of the stay. Lovely location on the island, Went to beautiful Flamenco beach and Zoni beach. Spent 2 weeks in Puerto Rico and the 2 nights we spent on the island was our favorite time.
We enjoyed the upper unit for our honeymoon visit to Culebra. We found it to be just as described. Rogelio was great! He picked us up at the airport and told us about some basic info on the island. The apartment was very clean and spacious. The rental vehicle is worth the extra $ for the convenience. Culebra is a diamond in the rough that we hope always stays rough! The owner is right that Zoni Beach really can be your private beach. We had two full days there and saw one other person the entire time! We found a little cove created by the natural trees/growth and set up the provided beach chairs and RELAXED. These beaches are out of this world! The only thing keeping this place from 5 stars are the kitchen utensils provided. The inventory could use some critical items and some of the cookware needs to be replaced. We cooked most of our meals in so that is what we noticed. A minor hiccup in an otherwise ideal location.
Great place to stay-quiet and close to Zoni Beach, but still close enough to town ~ 5mi. Well equipped and very clean. Easy using the optional rental car for pick up and drop off at airport. Everything was great!
Top floor unit. Nice place. Very responsive local 'agent' who was very helpful and friendly. Washer right in unit. Nice selection of movies and books to choose from. Outdoor shower put to good use as we did a lot of snorkling.
