Culebra Seduction- A spectacular residence with incredible sea views to Cayo Norte and Atlantic Ocean and only a 700 yard walk to Zoni Beach
LOCATION:Zoni Beach, one of the jewels of Culebra, is located on the secluded quiet east end over four miles from the nearest commercial building. Zoni Beach is a mile long sand beach that faces St Thomas, Culebrita and Cayo Norte and the natural beauty will capture your spirit forever. For thousands of years this pristine mile long beach has been a nesting area for Leatherback, Green, and Hawksbill turtles so future building is limited. Casa Tortuga is located on one of the prime parcels in the one acre zoned community of Alturas de Zoni. This community located above Zoni Beach contains just 31 properties, has restrictive covenants and is limited to one residence per one acre parcel. Casa Tortuga’s extremely unique location creates one of the finest parcels within the community and on all of Culebra. The property is nicely nestled for privacy and seclusion while enjoying picture perfect views of the Atlantic Ocean and Cayo Norte (2 miles) while enjoying good exposure to the cooling prevailing trade breezes.
VIEWS: - “Tortuga- means Sea Turtle”Casa Tortuga overlooks the romantic expanse of the Atlantic Ocean and the sublime Cayo Norte Passage and offers dynamic daytime and nighttime Caribbean Sea views. This unique view is limited to just a few properties on the small east end of Culebra and Casa Tortuga is strategically positioned to enjoy this significant wonder. Start the day with a glorious sunrise and enjoy the dramatic inspiring sea views to Cayo Norte. The nighttime provides a celestial spectacle in a darken sky that has little light pollution. The sky is always heavily layered with a star gazing festival that is accentuated by the distant and blessed with the sound of the lapping sea below – this is truly one of nature’s multimedia events !
BREEZES:The property is located on the more desirable windward side of Culebra. Casa Tortuga is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the cooling trade breezes as they first arrive on Culebra. The position of the property and design of the residence enables a wonderful flow of breeze that keeps this three building residential compound estate pleasantly refreshed year round.
