Our two story home "Alturas De Culebra" (Heights of Culebra) is situated on nearly two private acres of prime hillside property and offers panoramic views of Fulladoza Bay and the Carribbean Sea. Private, quiet location.
Additional reviews of our property are available on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).
There is over 2,000 square feet of interior space plus an additional 1,500 square feet of covered and uncovered patios to take advantage of the Caribbean breezes.
The first level offers a spacious living room and a dining table with views of the ocean. The room opens onto the covered patio, which has ocean views and is set up for outdoor dining. The kitchen is well equipped and generous on space, and a large outdoor propane grill is situated directly outside the kitchen. The first floor has both a full bathroom and an outdoor shower.
The second level of the home features a wrap-around deck with spectacular panoramic views of the ocean. Enjoy beautiful sunrises from the deck in the morning, and stargazing at night. All 3 bedrooms, each with air conditioning, ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet, are located on the second level. They provide maximum privacy while enjoying the views and breezes of Culebra.
The home is surrounded by beautiful terraced gardens with thoughtfully planted flora. You will find flowering trees, fruit trees and herbs around the property, including passion fruit, limes, oranges, oregano and olives.
The kitchen in our house is well stocked for cooking and we recently purchased new appliances including refrigerator, range/oven, blender, toaster oven, coffee maker, microwave oven, icemaker and juicer. The kitchen is stocked with new cookware, dishes and utensils. A large selection of spices and seasonings is available in the pantry. Please replace any spices or seasonings that you use up.

We have high speed internet provided by Culebra Networks, and the connection speed is excellent by island standards.
To facilitate use of cell phones for voice and data in the house, we installed a SureCall Fusion5S Home Signal Booster Kit. This system provides substantially improved cell phone coverage inside the house across the bands used by all major carriers, including 4G data service.
The LG Smart TV is a 50” 1080p resolution television plus a convenient Smart TV interface that provides access to services like Netflix, Hulu Plus and YouTube to stream your favorite movies and TV shows directly from the internet. Options for watching TV include streaming content from the internet via the WiFi network (e.g., Netflix), streaming content from your own computer or storage device, or watching a DVD from our library.
The Yamaha Soundbar provides enhanced sound quality when using the TV and functions as a stereo to listen to music. Bluetooth enabled phones or other devices can connect wirelessly, and devices with a 1/8” mini stereo output can be connected directly. We have provided a male-male 1/8” mini stereo adapter cable for this purpose.
The DVD player is located in the right cabinet below the TV. There is a separate remote control for the DVD player. DVDs are stored in the same location.
There is a 24” Acer LCD monitor available for use on the desk in the master bedroom. This can be used with your laptop or other A/V source via HDMI connection.
