CASA & CASITA DEL MAR-
“A one of a kind five acre property with 210 meters of spectacular waterfront – beachfront being offered at a great price”

A little known fact: "Due to the strict high quality zoning there are only a few quality waterfront properties on Culebra."

 

LOCATION:  This property of 5.1618 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 17 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. The owners are permitted to build a main residence and a cottage. 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 four 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 & Casita Del Mar is truly a one of a kind waterfront- beach front property with characteristics unique to this property alone.  

This property with approx 210  meters of waterfront is located on a pristine protected bay that is formed by an exterior coral reef located approx 400 off the shore (see satellite picture). This well protected bay on the Caribbean side of Culebra is calm and tranquil. There is a natural breach opening over 120 yards in width in this reef that is located directly in front of Casa Del Mar. This opening is seldom used because only a few properties have access to the bay. The opening permits access to large boats and the bay offers excellent deep water mooring locations just 30 meters from the shoreline. So you can moor a large boat within thirty meters of the shore and operate small craft right on to the unique sand beach of 50 meters width directly in front of Casa Del Mar. This calm cove type bay is approx a mile in width and the shoreline forms the secluded area of Playa Manzanilla. Except for in front of Casa Del Mar property which is majestic mangroves and the sand beach area the shoreline is composed of small pebbles and coral pieces and proceeds to enter into a sandy bottomed bay with the cleanest clearest water that is home to couch, octopus, sea turtles, many types of tropical fish and is home to 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 a few hundred yards of the shore. Casa & Casita Del Mar are located about 50 yards from the shoreline and approx 20 feet above sea level. Casa Del Mar offer stunning water / shoreline views of the mosaic colors offered by the blue Caribbean water and the sand and coral colors.   The nighttime celestial skies form a unique union with the shimmering Caribbean Sea will forever captive your spirit. Equally essential is the excellent exposure this property has to the cooling trade breezes. These naturally cooling breezes serve well to enhance the interior climate of Casa & Casita Del Mar and their covered verandas.
