About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Look us up on Facebook (Casa Etienne Vacation Rental) for additional information.

The property was purchased on 2003 and the home construction was finished on 2005.

The property features nearly and acre of land seating near the top of a hill that overlooks the natural bay of Boquerón and its fishing village, as well as the Caribbean Sea. Great views of surrounding mountains and open green spaces are available from every room. The house features 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, a modern kitchen with plenty of cabinet space and all the utensils and appliances (all stainless steel) a good cook will enjoy. Each bedroom contains a mini-split air conditioner unit to provide comfort while sleeping in those warm Caribbean nights.

During the day, due to its location and the surrounding topography, the house is constantly surrounded by the cool breezes of the Sea. The doors of the great room open fully to allow a sense of openness that places the occupants of the house in touch with the great open spaces and views that surround the property. The house has a constantly growing Caribbean garden with many delightful flowers unique to the islands, and some young but rapidly growing fruit trees.

The house sits at the end of the street with only green open spaces on most sides. The neighborhood is composed entirely of custom homes much of which are also vacation homes to owners residing in other parts of the island, and the United States. Due to this fact, the neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful, and the few neighbors that inhabit their homes year around, are extremely friendly, courteous, and helpful.

After staying a few days in our home, you too will come to understand why we choose this very special location, why this house is so special to us, and why we want to share it with you.

Welcome to our home and to the great island of Puerto Rico!!!

About Arnaldo Torres

Currently residing in the beautiful state of California, USA. Me and my wife, originals from Puerto Rico, always dreamed of owning a custom vacation home in the island. We live and work full-time in California, and enjoy traveling around the world, but every chance we get, we find our way to the warmth and the sun of Puerto Rico. Great food, great people, and nature at its best! NOTE: Map below does not show correct location. For better location info, go to:

Why Arnaldo Torres chose Boquerón

Been Native to the Island of Puerto Rico and knowing real well the different great get-aways in Puerto Rico is how we decided to buy and build our vacation home in this unique part of the island. As far away as you can get from San Juan, its traffic, and the crowds, we located in an area surrounded by great green open spaces, many of the greatest beaches of the island within minutes, near many of the great seafood restaurants of the west coast, and yet, close enough to some of the island largest cities for great fun activities at night, shopping, and site seeing.

What makes this house unique

The house is located near the top of a hill in nearly an acre of land with great views of the natural bay of Boquerón, and the Caribbean sea. Great views, continuously flowing breezes year around, open green spaces all around, quiet, peaceful, and private. These are the attributes that we value and those are the attributes our home embodies.

The 'crown jewel' by this tropical neighborhood; unforgettable view and sense of relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

Sitting down to enjoy a cup of coffee in the mornings, or a glass of wine in a lovely evening will never be the same again! You'll pour it, and walk straight to the balcony; the view, the fresh Caribbean breeze and the singing of birds will make you forget about everything else in life.The location and architecture brings the term 'home' to a higher level. It was designed and build to capture all the senses of tropical life; the view, light, fresh air, nature, with close driving access to beaches, amazing fresh seafood, plenty of music, unforgettable sunsets, and truly nice people that know how to live a relaxed lifestyle. Communication with the owner is A1, not missing a single detail about your stay, directions, and operation of house amenities. Looking forward to return to this unique example of tropical paradise!

What a great place to stay! From the view to the layout this home takes the cake! Clean with lots of glass windows and doors to take in the view of Boquerón bay. Each level has a deck.

And the home is fully furnished. Just 3 minutes from downtown Boquerón. I will stay here again and would recommend it to any one I know whose traveling to that area in the future. The place is awesome!

This house was large, airy, comfortable and spotless when we arrived. The living room doors open up into the balcony and time spent there was the highlight of our stay. Gentle breezes blew through the house all day long as it is located at the top of a hill. A second balcony with tables and chairs and umbrellas was also wonderful to spend time on. The views from the house are breathtaking. Two beaches were less than 10 min away and there is a market down the street. There are good bars and restaurants within a few minutes of the house.The kitchen met all of our needs and the furniture was comfortable, appropriate, and attractive. The fans and air conditioners were in perfect working order and the water pressure good. The owner provided enough towels (both beach and bath) and sheets/pillows for the 5 beds and the 8 people we had staying there. We truly enjoyed our stay and plan on renting it again when we return to Puerto Rico. All 7 of my family members who stayed here would agree on this review.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review Rosy! Just like Rosy, We have several other guests that visit our home year after year, which is something that we appreciate immensely and that motivate us to make the experience at our home always an improving one. We try to make the experience at our home a unique, and always evolving, experience. In the last few years we have added ceiling fans throughout the house, new patio furniture, and new Electronics in the Kitchen, and mezzanine with a new TV and Radio. We have also added expanded WiFi capabilities for a complete and reliable WiFi connectivity throughout the house and portions of the yard. We continue making improvements on our Yard planting new plants and trying new things.
