Property description

Nestled among centenary trees lies this well seasoned cottage atop the beach, a few feet below, with amazing views. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house, with fully equipped kitchen, has three different type beaches within less than a 10 minute walk. Still more secluded beaches a very short drive away. And the Caribbean Sea is less than 40 steps from your bed, providing you with an almost private little space to enjoy the tranquil waves that will lull you to sleep at night.

Take breathtaking walks down the Dry Forest, go scuba diving, discover our small piece of paradise, as this is our home away from home. Or simply lie on the dock while the sun sets, enjoying the most spectacular Caribbean show, and finish your day with the amazing night sky. Scuba services, kayaks and jet-ski rentals, banana-boat rides, restaurants, convenience store, even a Chapel with Sunday Mass within walking distance. Drive to La Parguera (a nearby fishing village) during the day and rent a boat to the smaller mangrove cays, or at night and visit the Bioluminiscent bay. Further west, Cabo Rojo, with its wonderful light house and impressive cliffs. Ponce, the second most important city of Puerto Rico, is about a 30 minute drive away, with its museums, plaza, and golf course. You will not drive more than 3 hours in any direction on the island.

Air conditioned rooms (if you don’t mind missing the night sounds) with ceiling fans, fresh and hot water; BBQ, TV, DVD, movies, board games, more. If you need anything else, just contact us.

Villa Nana is 2 hours from the Aeropuerto Internacional Luis Muñoz Marin (SJU); 35 minutes from the Ponce Mercedita Airport (PSE). NO PASSPORT REQUIRED

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are the Gautier-Castro family. We met each other here in Playa Santa (as the beach is informally known), Guanica, where we have been vacationing almost every weekend since childhood. We like traveling the world and still have much to visit. Our children are in college in Boston, MA and Tempe, AZ, respectively. So we decided it is time to share our privilege of enjoying this house by the sea with others. We love the outdoors, and this place has much to offer. You may stay secluded and relax; or you may walk, swim, and experience the area until you just need to relax to resupply your energy. Either way, we are sure you are going to have a wonderful time. We love making new friends, so, if you want, we can meet you at the airport or drop by while you enjoy your stay. We are very environmentally conscious so we hope you join us in recycling glass, plastic and aluminum bottles and carton in the provided bins. Please contact us for any other request you may have. We will make every effort to please your requirements.

Why the Owner Chose Guanica:
We grew up visiting this area and are still in love with it. Our relatives and many friends still have houses here, but very few are waterfront. This one belonged to a friend who passed away after enjoying his retirement here. This is exactly what we plan to do when we retire. And we are convinced that if we need to let go one property, for whatever reason, this is the last one to go.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There are very few properties in this area that offer so much. You have an almost private little cove and dock (PR laws do not permit private beaches or docks) for yourself. Due to its location, and its hard access through the shore, you hardly get any visitors other than friends. Villa Nana is easily accesible from any part of Puerto Rico and you have any ammenities you might need nearby. Shopping, movie theaters, grocery stores, pharmacies, historical sites, etc.
