                              This house is located in one of the areas that still captures the Puerto Rico of the 1950s. The old narrow coastal roads are full of secluded and almost private beaches and colorful restaurants. There are all sorts of activities and things to do nearby. A fifteen minute drive to the nearest town will return you again to the 21st century.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1990

                              About the owner: Professor Ruben Miranda was born and raised in Puerto Rico. He lived in the New York metropolitan area where he studied graduate studies in Applied Linguistics and ESL. He owns a School of Languages in Caguas, Puerto Rico (nslplus.com).

                              Why the Owner Chose Arecibo:
                              This house was built in the late 50's. It has been restored and updated twice since 1990, but still conserves the nostalgic appearance of bygone years. The house is VERY private and it is only 300 hundred feet from the main road. The ocean is about 75 feet from the house backyard. Dry coral cliffs surround a shallow lagoon resembling a small island off the coast. When the surf is high, it creates little waterfalls that cascade into the lagoon.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The swimming pool is located inside the house premises and it is embraced by two long verandas, a porch, a wooden deck, and a large terrace. There are two bathrooms and an outside pressure shower head. Two rocking chairs will welcome guests at the main entrance while two swing chairs and two hammocks will greet them at the beach exit.
