About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 Adults, Perfect for Families,Surfers, You

My most recent review says- The beaches are within minutes and they are breathtaking in their beauty. If you love surfing and snorkeling, it is the place to be. We dined out at the local restaurants and were never disappointed. The people were friendly. My wife and I will most definitely return.

AIR CONDITIONING IN ALL 3 BEDROOMS - Rent this clean and comfortable house to live in while you enjoy the beauty and splendor of Puerto Rico. Here, after a day of fun in the sun, come home to sleep in the total comfort of a cool and comfortable Air Conditioned Bedroom. PERFECT!!!, and very reasonably priced.

Located in the Northwest corner of the island, far away from the Metropolitan life of the "BIG CITY", you will appreciate the friendly, inviting nature of the people who call this place home. This is where all of the best beaches on the island are found. Within minutes of the house are the beaches called Jobos de Playa, Montones, Shacks Beach, and Crashboat beach. Whether your into Surfing, Boogie boarding, Paddle boarding, Wind surfing, Snorkling, Beach combing, or Sunbathing, it's all here for you to do.

For those of you who desire to experience what rural Puerto Rican life is like, this is the place to be. Here, the locals are friendly and informative should you need assistance. Near this home you can Horseback ride on the beach, Golf on great courses, Wine and dine at a variety of culinary treats. Also available - Small private airplane rides to anywhere you want to go around Puerto Rico, and even over to the Virgin Islands at very reasonable prices. FABULOUS - what a way to get the big picture of Paradise.

Within an hour of the house are underground caves to explore, and a "must see"- Worlds largest Radio telescope near Arecibo. (This is the one seen in the movie "Contact" with Jodie Foster.) Travel down the West end of the island and explore Cabo Rojo, here you see the lighthouse at the SouthWestern most tip of the island. See the beauty of Ponce which is near there.

I ACCEPT ALL MAJOR CREDIT CARD THRU FIRST DATA. THIS IS A TOTALLY SECURE SYSTEM PURCHASE THRU SAM'S CLUB WHICH IS CHECKED AND VERIFIED EVERY 3 MONTHS TO BE COMPLIANT BY SECURITY METRICS, SO NO WORRIES.

This home has a full kitchen with breakfast bar, a dining room that seats 6 people comfortable, covered parking, Cable TV, WIFI, a beautiful landscaped yard with a gazebo for relaxing around the table outside, a outdoor shower (complete privacy) for rinsing the saltwater off after a day of fun at the beach. The home is secure, so that you can know as you travel the island or hang out on the numerous beaches, that your valuables are safe.

To make your stay easy, the house is a very short walk to a El Mana Bakery, serving up fresh baked goods daily and if you desire cooked meals, as well as many of the daily items you may need. There is also a brand new Mexican restaurant across the street. You can rent surfboards, paddleboards and beach umbrellas right down at the beach which is 3 minutes away by car. Surfing instruction is also available here. Just bring your swim trunks and bikinis, sandals, sunglasses and don't forget the suntan lotion!

You may want to fly United, Jet Blue and Spirit Airlines to and from Rapael Hernandez International Airport (code letters BQN). This is a international airport that will put you 15 minutes from my home. You can avoid the 2-1/2 hour drive from San Juan airport across the country to get to where all the fun is.

About Hank Iszley

My name is Hank. My interests include writing music and poetry, photography, and sightseeing. I am a artist at heart, even my work is artistic. I sculpt metal with a computer to create airplane parts for the Boeing Co., the F22 and F35 fighter jets. I also have parts on the Hubble telescope, the Space shuttles, and the Int'l Space Station. When I am not being artistic, I am driving my sports car or riding my motorcycle.

Hank Iszley purchased this house in 2007

Why Hank Iszley chose Jobos

I am nearing retirement age and wanted to find somewhere in the Caribbean to live out my old age. I fell in love with Puerto Rico when my brother and I did a road trip to explore the island. It was then that I knew that I had to own a piece of it. The people, the palm trees, and the sunshine, I was sold.

What makes this house unique

This is a beautiful house with a beautiful yard. I think that the private outdoor shower is my favorite amenity. It is so nice to rinse all that sand and saltwater off outside before you go in.

Nice home close to a great beach.

  • 4 of 5

The house was well kept, comfortably furnished, and clean. It had everything we needed, including stocked spices . The beds were comfortable. There were extra towels. Elizabeth, the property manager, was very patient when it took us longer than expected to arrive. She contacted us the day before our arrival to ensure that we had contact with her and was helpful getting us to the house.

We really appreciated having the wifi available! And the provided dvds were good to relax with after a long time traveling with two kids. The beach was very close and we highly recommend Uma's Restaurant.

The only downside was road noise and neighborhood roosters. Only a problem for us because we come from a quiet neighborhood. Otherwise the house was perfect for our needs and we will look for it again if we get the chance to return to Puerto Rico. Thank you for sharing your home away from home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review of my home. The noise is the cost of staying in a real country life experience setting. I wish that there were no roosters around, but that would be in the city. - Hank

Fabulous Host

  • 5 of 5

First off we would like to say that Hank is the most accommodating man that we have ever worked with. It was such a relief after our disastrous first few days on the other side of the island. Needless to say, we left the other side of the island and Hank let us come stay in his home earlier than we had anticipated. This is a clean, AIR CONDITIONED, well kept home with all the supplies you will need during your stay. The beds are comfortable and there was plenty of space for all 6 of us. The outdoor shower is a total bonus and very necessary if you plan on visiting one of the many wonderful beaches near this home. We did hear a few roosters but they were distant and didn't bother us at all. We found at least 8 great beaches nearby; not all of them are advertised well but if you do a little research and exploration you can find them. There are plenty of activities nearby for any age (even a 6 month old). The bakery across the street is great and although there is a Mexican restaurant across the street we did not have the opportunity to visit it. The property manager Elizabeth is very easy to get ahold of should you have questions. All in all, Hank saved our vacation!

AMAZING!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! What a great house. Hank made everything very easy. It was a simple process to secure the house. Elizabeth let us into the house and showed us around. She was very kind and knowledgeable. The house was PERFECT!! So clean and had everything you need. It's right at the top of the hill off Jobos. There was plenty of space, a grill, and the outdoor space was great for people watching.

It is on a busy street but it was fine. The loudest noise are the roosters and other nature. The bathrooms were wonderful and the outdoor shower was especially handy after the beach. There are no beach towels but there is a Walmart about 10 min away and cost under $5 each. Worked great! The bakery across the street is a must. Great people, baked goods, and quick sandwiches to grab on our way to the beach. Very central location to Jobos, Montones, and maybe 15 min to Aguadilla. I will stay here again and again. Stop looking, this place is perfect. I just left and I already miss it.

Modest clean well kept 3 bedroom house across from a friendly bakery.

  • 4 of 5

The beaches are within minutes and they are breathe taking in their beauty. If you love surfing and snorkeling it is the place. We dined out at the local restaurants and were never disappointed. The people were friendly but be on guard and watch where you park etc. My wife and I will most definitely return.

Clean attractive good location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Hank's place and it was comfortable and very clean. The owner and his manager were very helpful and paid attention to every detail. Aside from noisy roosters in the early morning all went well. The beach is nearby and there is a bakery / store across the street. Good value for your money.
