We are pleased to report that as of Monday December 4, all services have been restored to Culebra (24/7 power, water and ferry) and Culebra is ready for visitors! We look forward to hosting you for the 2018 season.

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. 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.

There is a different beautiful beach to visit every day of the week on Culebra. All of the beaches are within 5 to 20 minutes from our house. For the adventurous, you can hike to the virgin beaches of Playa Resaca, Brava or Carlos Rosario. You can also charter a water taxi or a sailboat to the beautiful unspoiled islands of Culebrita and Luiz Pena.

About Alissa Haynes

We live in Park City, Utah although we are originally from Southern California and Alaska. We enjoy both the mountains and the beaches, and we like solitude. Our house on Culebra is a perfect fit for us.

Alissa Haynes purchased this house in 2015

Why Alissa Haynes chose Playa Sardinas II

We visited Culebra in 2011 and fell in love with it. Since our first visit, we have spent nearly all of our extended vacations on the island, in each case renting a home. Our wonderful experience with vacations in these homes motivated us to search for a home of our own, and Alturas de Culebra has been a perfect fit. We try to spend 2-3 months a year on Culebra.

What makes this house unique

The spacious interior and exterior of the house, panoramic views and the quiet location are our favorite features.

Gorgeous views; owners know what renters want

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 16 year-old son just returned from a 3 night stay. Waking up each morning to this view was incredible! It is truly amazing! The house is very comfortable and quickly becomes a home away from home. The owners were extremely responsive to emails/questions and their welcome guide was our go to source for best snorkeling spots, restaurants, beach info etc. while on the island. They have put a lot of thought into what renters would like to know, what they may want at home to be comfortable etc. The house is so well stocked and organized. We cooked in a lot and my husband could not get over the crockery, spices etc. available to cook with. Beach chairs, towels and coolers for the beach - everything is available. One really has to rent a Jeep 4 wheel drive. We did rent one but had issues with ours so the car rental gave us a Jeep SUV and this was a problem. 1st visit to Culebra so can’t say what the vegetarian may have looked like before but we didn’t see much signs of the hurricane - thankfully. The island is beautiful, grocery stores stocked, a few restaurants are still cleaning up but it is very much ready for tourists. Flamenco beach was closed while we were there due to clean-up but we heard it is expected to open back up on March 1st. We will back for sure.

Wonderful, beautiful, clean home with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We came to Culebra with our 5 children (5-16 years old) and were greeted by Jessie right on time at the airport. We LOVE Culebra and have been to the island many times in the last 18 years. When we drove up to the house we were completely amazed! The yellow home is so beautiful with a very spacious patio and balcony, gorgeous landscaping and the location is perfect. We had views of the sunrise in the morning and just far enough out of town to have the best star gazing at night. Everyday we commented how awesome this house is! It's just like the pictures/description (or better:) and has absolutely everything you need...even a gas grill! Jessie was so nice, but we didn't need her at all in the 8 nights we stayed. Everything works! The breeze was so refreshing that we didn't even need the air conditioner...and we usually used the air conditioning at other properties at night. The house has its own water (cistern) and a back up for electricity in case you need it - we never did. If you've never been to Culebra, you probably would never know they had a couple hurricanes. The island is up and running well. We had perfect weather, the best accommodations, and a lovely trip. Beaches/hiking/snorkeling/day trip to Culebrita with Captain Bill & Dave during the day and a relaxing evening at home -making or getting food to go and having meals at night in this home was a joy. We will return and highly recommend this home. It has everything you need and NO MOSQUITOES!!! Never saw one. The owners of this home are patient with questions and extremely easy to contact. Jeff and Allissa thanks again so much for sharing your home - you have a beautiful home on Culebra and we appreciated every single thoughtful touch!

Unfortunately, Hurricane Irma cut out trip short but we thoughourly enjoyed our stay. The owners were some of the most responsive we've ever dealt with.

Excellent stay. Property is in great shape, comfortable and has excellent outdoor living space. The view from the house is wonderful. Beds are comfortable. Bathrooms are in good shape. Note that you definitely need a 4 wheel drive to get to the house.

Great place for family or couples!

  • 5 of 5

Jeff and Alyssa's place is awesome! They have a great view, awesome accommodations, and very friendly caretakers. Our kids had a blast in the room that is separate from the main house. It was also super nice to have beach chairs to tote around with us. I would recommend this property to anyone and Jeff and Alyssa were both very prompt and professional to deal with.

Alissa and Jeff's home is awesome!! The view is outstanding, and the two decks allow you to enjoy it. We had 5 adults and a baby and the three bedrooms, each with private bathrooms, were wonderful. The interior is spacious and well-kept. The kitchen was well stocked. Alissa was our contact, and she was quick to reply and responsive to our needs. The house did not have a crib so she purchased a "pack and play". Jessie met us at the airport. She was very helpful and accommodating. We would definitely come back!!
