  • Casa Ballena for relaxation, fun, views, and quality time

    "Casa Ballena in Guánica is an ideal vacation rental for all the reasons previous visitors have stated and much more. Our family of 8, sometimes 10, arriving from the bitter cold up North, was always comfortable and relaxed. The tropical atmosphere of the quite well-maintained house, the ceiling fans, the air-conditioned bedrooms (especially important in the summer months), the magnificent view of Guilligan Island and the proximity to that paradise, the pool, the lovely gardens with a hardy guayacán tree, the comfortable kitchens with all its tools and gadgets (we took the house upstairs and the full apartment downstairs), the BBQ, the three terraces with dinner tables and chairs and one of them with a sectional sofa too, and the quiet (even on New Year’s Eve), everything made the visit easy and enjoyable. Jeffrey, the administrator, and his family couldn’t have been more helpful. All our questions and requests were promptly answered. There are also nearby must-dos and must-sees: the lovely beaches in Guánica, Cabo Rojo, Salinas; the city of Ponce; the Cabo Rojo lighthouse; and so much more. If you want a relaxing vacation, Casa Ballena is the place to go."

  • Fantastic getaway for families

    "This was a spectacular vacation rental for our family of six. We greatly enjoyed the Aquatika grounds and practically owned the beach and the swimming pools."

  • Beautiful spot off the beaten path!

    "My husband, our 3 year old son, my sister and her boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights in March. It was absolutely beautiful and perfect for our group of 5. The huge outdoor deck offered so many options for lounging, eating, grilling and even napping...all with an absolutely stunning view of the water. The house had everything we needed and was in perfect condition when we arrived. Theresa's directions were spot on and it was the one place in PR that we actually were able to locate on our first try! The town is not much to speak of, but the beaches were spectacular and not crowded at all. We tried out Domes beach (to watch the surfers) and Steps beach for awesome snorkeling. And my husband tried surf lessons before deciding the sport was not for him! But honestly, we preferred the ease and privacy of the beach and water at the base of the property. Our son loved watching the crabs and other sea creatures and my sister loved the snorkeling. One word of warning, the street that the house is on is very narrow and the rental car place gave us a mini-van which made it very difficult to maneuver. Technically, you should be able to drive in a loop and not have to turn around, but we often found the street blocked and we had to execute a 10 point turn with the mini-van. so make sure to get a small car! Also, i'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5 only because i made several e-mail inquiries regarding parking and a small cot-type bed for my son that went unanswered until I called Theresa (at which point she was very nice). Not sure why the e-mails went unanswered, but would recommend getting all your questioned answered in advance."

  • Simple and sweet

    "The home is very simple but very relaxing. You can walk to the beach in minutes. Very conveniently located near El Yunque, Fajardo (snorkeling, ferry to Culebra, Bioluminescent Bay). The food Kiosk's at Luquillo Beach are great! The owners and Robert the maintenance person are very nice and responsive!! Would definitely consider coming back!"
