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.

Beautiful on top of a hill.
The beautiful home perfectly met our needs!
I rented the house for friends who were visiting Culebra for the first time. Their group included two couples and two teenagers. I live in Culebra and have always appreciated driving by this beautiful house on the hill. Our friends love everything about the house. The bedrooms were perfectly appointed and the living space was comfortable and had everything they needed. Their two favorite things were the proximity to Zoni Beach, where they spent many hours, and the pool area. They were in the pool early in the morning and under the stars at night. It made for an unforgettable experience for all of them. I know they will be back.
La casa es preciosa. Todo está muy organizado y limpio. La piscina es un super plus. Definitivamente regreso.
Gracias Lysandra. Que bueno que les gustó.
We stayed for 1 week in Culebra and loved it! the place is fantastic. We went to the beach during the morning every day and used the pool in the afternoon when the sun was really hot out. Getting up in the morning to a cup of coffee with a nice breeze and a great view, Priceless!
Thanks for your generous review. We’ll try to make it even better for when you return.
I really liked the set up with separate bedroom cottages. The house is well appointed and Jimmy was very helpful and accessible. Plenty of refrigerators and beach supplies. The pool was awesome. Clean and well maintained. We never had a problem with bugs, but during buggy season, I would be a little cautious because there are no screens anywhere. But it was perfect weather when we were there and quite comfortable with all the shutters open. I would stay there again!
Thank you for staying with us. The only place we don’t have screens is in the bedrooms because most guests use the ac but we’ll look into it.
PERFECT FOR OUR CIRCUMSTANCES
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
Gracias por pensar en nosotros y por su evaluación.
