Hatillo house description

Puerto Rico was just named the most affordable vacation location in the Caribbean!!

Our home is located in a traditional Puerto Rican neighborhood in the town of Hatillo, away from the hustle and bustle of San Juan and close to all of the natural beauty Puerto Rico has to offer.

If you are looking for a vacation house that is comfortable, secure, and immersed in the Puerto Rican culture, this is the house for you.

Take your cup of coffee across the street in the morning to the soft sands of our beach. Dip your toes in the tide pool and watch the splendid sunrise. We guarantee that you will never tire of this sight.

Our house is furnished in a fashion that will make you feel at home, with everything you need to make your vacation feel like complete paradise.

At night you can leave the doors and windows open with the security of our ironwork to experience the cool ocean breeze.

The master bedroom has a brand new king size bed with higher count linens and an attached master bathroom. There is a new 32' flat screen TV with DirectTV service.

The second bedroom has a queen bed and enjoys a glimpse of the ocean.

The third bedroom has a double bed and loveseat.

The guest bathroom has a full size shower with easy access from the two guest bedrooms.

The kitchen is well stocked and the dining room table sits right in front of windows overlooking the ocean and beach. It's the perfect spot for watching the surfers who come and go throughout the day.

The living room has a L-shaped couch and two recliners along with a new 40' flat screen TV with DirectTV service. A wall of windows lets you gaze at the ocean. From here you can step out onto the covered front porch where you can sip a cocktail while enjoying the sights and sounds of the ocean.

We have plenty of beach chairs, towels, and toys for you to use during your stay!

              Other Amenities

                  • A wise man told us to 'be careful because you will fall in love with Puerto Rico' we did, and we know you will to! Come live on the beach like you do in your dreams. You will never tire of hearing the waves crashing on shore. Spend time shelling, poking in the tide pools, snorkeling, swimming, or simply laying on the cool sand. Our onsite property manager will assist you with the check-in and check-out process and can provide you with tons of suggestions on things to do, places to see, and great local eats. If you find it hard to leave the beach to explore other areas of the island, don't worry, you can always come back for another visit! We encourage return visits and offer discounts to those who stay with us multiple times....moreless

                      Rio Camuy Caves

                      Tucked away in the lush northwest corner of Puerto Rico, about 50 miles west of San Juan, is one of the island's best kept secrets; the Rio Camuy Caves. The cave system, which gets its name from the 13-mile-long Camuy River, forms the third-largest cave system in the Western Hemisphere. The process that created the caves started almost 160 million years ago when a great limestone plateau was thrust up from the Caribbean Sea to form the western half of the island.

                      Aricebo Observatory

                      The Arecibo Observatory is part of the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC), a national research center operated by SRI International, USRA and UMET, under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation (NSF). The NSF is an independent federal agency whose aim is to promote scientific and engineering progress in the United States. NSF funds research and education in most fields of science and engineering. Additional support is provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

                      The Observatory operates on a continuous basis, 24 hours a day every day, providing observing time, electronics, computer, travel and logistic support to scientists from all over the world. All results of research are published in the scientific literature which is publicly available.

                      As the site of the world's largest single-dish radio telescope, the Observatory is recognized as one of the most important national centers for research in radio astronomy, planetary radar and terrestrial aeronomy. Use of the Arecibo Observatory is available on an equal, competitive basis to all scientists from throughout the world. Observing time is granted on the basis of the most promising research as ascertained by a panel of independent referees who review the proposals sent to the Observatory by interested scientists. Every year about 200 scientists visit the Observatory facilities to pursue their research project, and numerous students perform observations that lead to their master and doctoral dissertations.

                      Old San Juan

                      With its abundance of shops, historic places, museums, open air cafés, restaurants, gracious homes, tree-shaded plazas, and its old beauty and architectonical peculiarity, Old San Juan is a main spot for local and internal tourism. A free tourist trolley serves the city.

                      The neighborhood of La Perla outside of the historic city wall on the rocky north coast belongs to sub-barrios Mercado and San Cristóbal.

                      The district is also characterized by numerous public plazas and churches including San José Church and the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, which contains the tomb of the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León. It also houses the most ancient Catholic school for Elementary education in Puerto Rico, the Colegio de Párvulos, built in 1865.

                      Old San Juan is one of the two barrios, in addition to Santurce, that made up the municipality of San Juan after 1864 and prior to 1951, in which the former independent municipality of Río Piedras was annexed.

                      El Yunque Rain Forest

                      The El Yunque Rain Forest is a cool, mountainous, sub tropical rainforest. The Eastern side of the Luquillo Mountains, which has the El Yunque rainforest at the top elevations, gets most of the rain.

                      . . 'This tropical 'Rain forest' occupies very little area in Puerto Rico, only a single, crescent shaped, band on the windward side of the El Yunque mountains. It lies wholly within the El Yunque National Forest Reserve. Its' main features are the Sierra Palms and a superabundance of epiphytes.'

                      The actual rainforest is at the top, you must drive to the top of the road and hike up to see the cloud or dwarf forest. There is no rainforest lodging within the actual rainforest, nor within the park boundaries but there are many places to stay at the edge of the forest that 'feel' like the rainforest.

                      Dry Forest Reserve

                      Meet the Guánica Dry Forest Reserve: 10,000 acres of dry land inhabited by over 600 uncommon types of plants and animals, including 48 endangered species and 16 that are unique to Puerto Rico! A surprisingly captivating terrain, splashed with pastel colors and bursting with wildlife, Guánica's Dry Forest is the perfect counterpoint to the verdant El Yunque Rainforest.

                      Bio Bay

                      The phosphorescent bay off of the coast of La Parguera, a small fishing village on the Southwest corner of Puerto Rico. The luminescent effect in the bay is the result of a permanent population of tiny micro-organisms called Dinoflagellates. These animals produce a chemical spark of light when disturbed in the water. They can produce striking effects of green and white sparkles that can only be seen at night.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: We traveled to Puerto Rico for the first time in February 2013 and fell in love with the island. Our dream has always been to own property close to the ocean and in August 2013 we made our dream a reality! We are both Colorado natives who love to travel and experience different cultures. We love the Latin culture and made instant friends in Puerto Rico. Family is very important to us. We have two grown daughters and eight grandchildren! We look forward to having them all visit us in Puerto Rico. We will be the cool grandparents right?

                      Why the Owner Chose Hatillo:
                      Why this property? It's right on the beach! We both fell in love with this house the first time we saw it and we know you will feel the same way. Surrounded by Puerto Rican culture instead of living in an American condo community was a critical element for us We want to be immersed in and experience this beautiful island and there is no better place to do it than this home. Some of the neighborhood homes are not kept up as well as we would like, including the house to the east of us, but that is part of being in a traditional neighborhood. Enjoy small town life within a short drive to Old San Juan, Outlet malls, fantastic beaches, coffee plantations, bakeries, and rain forests. This is paradise!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The ocean and beach are within steps of your front door. You will never grow tired of the view and sounds of the ocean.
