About the area.........
Isabela, Puerto Rico is located in the quiet North-West corner of Puerto Rico. Just a short 3 1/2 hour direct flight from JFK or Newark and there are no passports required for US Citizens.

Our home is just 10 minutes from the small Aguadilla Airport (airport code BQN) or a manageable drive from San Juan (SJU)(1hr 45min)

Situated at the end of a dead-end street, our house is just 100 steps from a quiet, private 5+ mile strip of undeveloped beach front. Isabela is a very serene area with very little to do...just simple pleasures.

The house is equipped with television with a nice library of DVDs. We do not have cable TV........enjoy the getaway!

If you need to be in touch with the cyber world, there is a nearby coffee shop with internet access, you can bring your laptop or use their desktop.

Towels and linens are provided as well as beach chairs.

Our VERY nearby attractions include 'Tropical Trailrides', just a short walk down the street, Ola Lola's Garden Bar, a lovely way to experience the local flavor, Villa Montana, a nearby quiet upscale resort w/restaurants and spa services on site, Shacks Beach, an amazing snorkeling/diving beach and surfing beach.

Our Isabela Beach House can be your headquarters to explore and enjoy the many nearby activities and attractions. Within minutes, you'll be at prime spots for World Class surfing, windsurfing and kite boarding, scuba diving and snorkeling. Only 10 minutes away is the 18-hole Punta Borinquen Golf Course, President Eisenhower's favorite, literally located at the northwest tip of the island on a plateau overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Across the street is the Punta Borinquen Tennis Club and nearby are bowling alleys, running track, theaters, shopping centers and a water park. The new ice skating rink provides cool times. Also only 10 minutes away is a new beginner to extreme skateboard park that is also a little kids play ground and water park.

The property is very versatile:
~ Great for an extended family vacation. The house is big enough that everyone can vacation together yet there is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space :)
~ The house is great for a girls get away! Spa services are available just a short walk down the beach at 'Villa Montana'.
~Awesome family house! The island offers a list of great daily adventures: rain forest with water falls, caving, horseback riding, beach beach beach! (list at house will give you lots of choices and details)

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: We are a family of four who live and work hard on Long Island, New York. We love spending our vacation time at 'The Lone Palm' but also love sharing! Hope you enjoy the home as much as we do!

              Why the Owner Chose Isabela:
              We first visited 'Shacks Beach' in 1999 and fell in love! We purchased 'The Lone Palm' in 2006. As a surfing/diving family, we find the area ideal. Located in the North-West corner of the island it is easy to find the perfect break on any given day.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Although the house is located at Shacks Beach it is not in a congested area, it is located at the end of a dead end street. A very serene setting with no traffic or noise.....except for a few horses riding by and a talkative nearby rooster :) We are literally 100 steps from the ocean, accessed by a path through a canopy of palm trees. Our very own beach offers amazing Kite Boarding, Snorkeling, Diving, Swimming and Beach Combing.........Miles of uninterrupted beach to stroll! Within a short walking distance you'll find 'Ola Lola's' garden bar & cafe as well as Tropical Trail Rides, Villa Montana Resort, & Eclipse Restaurant.
