This property of 5.2439 cuerdas (approx 5 acres) offers a prime waterfront location with many features that create a dramatically exotic Caribbean location site with a greatly enhanced investment grade value. The property is located in the exclusive residential community of Punta Del Vientos. Created 19 years ago this community is composed of 24 properties each with a minimum lot size of five acres. There is a community association and protective covenants that help develop and protect the overall character and quality of the community. This community is accessed via a well maintained community dirt road system and is serviced by underground electric and telephone utilities. As is common to all east end properties in Culebra, residences are built upon rainwater cisterns that work well and assure a secure and reliable water supply. There are currently twelve finished homes in this community and one under construction. The valuation        (June 2016) of current existing homes is approx $750K to $4 million dollars. This east end community is bordered by two other separate five acre zoned communities and another area that is zoned five acres per house. The southeast end of Culebra is a truly unique area that is sheltered by this very exacting zoning that has served to create a very special unspoiled natural tropical Caribbean landscape. If you know Culebra, you will understand that the location of Casa Bosque is truly a one of a kind waterfront- beach front property with characteristics unique to this property alone.  

This property with approx 137 meters of waterfront is located on a pristine protected bay just inside the entrance to the interior harbor of Culebra (see satellite picture). This well protected bay on the Caribbean side of Culebra is calm and tranquil. Casa Bosque is located on the south end a beach area. This beach is approx 200 meters in width and is composed of sand, small pieces of coral and small stones. The beach itself is little know and seldom used is except by an occasional visitor. The property is fenced and gated and has excellent privacy. From the beach in front of Casa Boaque you can use small boats or kayaks and located directly in front within 30-100 meters is a rarely used open mooring area for yachts requiring deeper water. From the beach of Casa Bosque you enter calm, clean and crystal clear water that is home to couch, octopus, sea turtles, many types of tropical fish and a large variety of sea birds. This is an excellent protected bay for kayak access, a wonderful windsurf or sunfish location, superb fishing for bonefish and tarpon, and excellent snorkeling are all within just yards of the shore. Casa Bosque is located about 40 yards from the shoreline and varies from approx 20 to 40 feet above sea level. Casa Bosque offer stunning water / shoreline views of the mosaic colors offered by the blue Caribbean water and the sand and coral colors. Enjoy the romantic sunsets from the veranda deck or beach.   The nighttime celestial skies form a unique union with the shimmering Caribbean Sea and the soft sounds of the water lapping on the beach below that will forever captive your spirit. The tree house post and beam style cedar lap construction of Casa Bosque help create the unique effect with the large decks seeming to hang over the water. The large veranda and decks are a perfect spot for enjoying the outdoor lifestyle that has been created by the unique design of Casa Bosque. If you have ever been serious about owning your very own secluded "Caribbean Dream" come and see this offering and observe for yourself the charismatic natural qualities this one of a kind distinctive property and the island of Culebra offer you.
