Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This beautiful vacation home will suit all the vacation needs for families, individuals, couples or a group of friends. The house is about one hour drive away from both Aguadilla and San Juan airport, mostly highway. The town of Arecibo is on center of the island in the coast giving you easy access to all the best the island can offer.

Enjoy the master suite with bathroom and walk in closet and queen size bed. The second bedroom also has a queen size bed and has the second bathroom across the hall. The third bedroom has a full size futon and a twin size bunk bed, this will comfortably accommodate up to 4 people on this room with the second bathroom just across the hall. There are also three inflatable mattresses available, one queen size and two twin size. These can be placed on the rooms or any other area of the house to accommodate groups of up to 12 guests. Use them to configure the rooms as you need for your group. All bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and have air conditioning units.

Cook a meal at the large kitchen or fire up the grill in the terrace while looking at the ocean. You can play some dominoes (domino table and dominoes are provided) or just lay on the hammock and read a book to the sound of the waves. The family room is right there next to the kitchen. Don't worry about the rain, you have a double garage. Let the kids play on the big yard or the basketball court.

This awesome house is in a gated community for added security, peace and quiet. Go for a walk on the beach or to La Cueva del Indio historical site. Excellent diving and snorkeling or enjoy the day swimming on the refreshing natural pools on the reef all right across the street, just open the gate, cross the street and you are there. If you like exploration a short trek down our extravagant coastline will bring you to 'La Poza', the gigantic tidal pool with sandy bottom protected from the surf where kids and adults can spend the most delightful time swimming and enjoying the water, right next to it you can find a strip of golden beach to enjoy the waves as seen in the pictures. You can also get there by car, it's a one minute drive and safer for smaller kids. BTW, only the locals know about it and visit it.

This house is just minutes away from everything this area has to offer, less than 5 minute drive to public beaches, surfing beaches, restaurants, historical parks, groceries stores, bakeries, gas stations, everything! Drive and additional 10 minutes and you will be at the great Premium Outlet Mall.

About Rebecca

Hi! My name is Rebecca and I am the owner of this lovely house. I love diving, snorkeling and eco adventures. Another thing I love is peace and quiet and hammocks, I really do. Love the zip lines and horseback riding as much as reading a book in the terrace. I could go on forever but that is my nutshell!. Have Fun!

Rebecca purchased this house in 2008

Why Rebecca chose Arecibo

All my life I wanted a house on the beach and I got it! Yeah! I have enjoyed every minute in this house for a couple of years but my career has moved me to new adventures. Now you get to enjoy this house. Make it your vacation home, you'll love it!

What makes this house unique

This house offers something very rare, this house is right across the street from the ocean but it is also part of a Gated Community. It is also a free standing house. That is a great combination. You don't have to worry about your kids wandering into the traffic or leaving your car on a parking lot.

Beautiful, comfortable and somewhat modern home for a relaxing stay - can't go wrong!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very roomy and was actually bigger than expected. It is larger in person than in the pictures. Everything you need is there: towels, iron, pots, pans, wine glasses a fridge that provides, water and ice, etc. The ocean is across the street, and you can hear it in the evenings as you are falling asleep, that's how close - very relaxing. You can also see it from the side terrace equipped with a t table and chairs if you decide to do some outdoor grilling - grill and charcoal also provided. The terrace is small and it's not that decorated -but it's still a place you can sit at for breakfast and enjoy the weather and sound of the ocean. However, you wouldn't swim at the ocran across from the house. It's more for the view. However, there is no shortage of beaches to swim at just a few minutes away, in the vicinity. There are also a lot of eateries nearby at very reasonable prices. Arecibo is centrally located to both ends of the island so its also a great location. All in all, a great place to stay. Thanks Rebecca!

Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

Six members of my family stayed in the Becca Beach house. I really liked the key box which was convenient and there was no worry about having to meet someone at a certain time. We got in much later than we planned so it was nice not to have to worry getting the key. The home was very clean and as soon as we were familiar with the area it was easy in and out. Since the roads in Puerto Rico get a little scary at night we used Exit 75A and followed the route to the Arecibo Lighthouse and then turned on Rt 681. There was more time on highway and less on the curvy country roads. There was plenty of room, nice kitchen with all the appliances you would need plus a full size washer and dryer. The neighborhood was quiet except for one night, our neighbors decided to party into the early morning hours. After that one night we could not complain. I would stay here again.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time here. The Indian cave is up the road. The Arecibo lighthouse is close by as well. There is a beach by the lighthouse that is safe. We toured the entire island this trip and this home was in the perfect location. The sound of waves puts you to sleep at night and it's the first thing you hear in the morning. There was plenty of room for us. When the air conditioning unit broke down. Rebecca got it fixed right away. The house is in a little gated community and we felt very safe. It has a pool that the kids loved to use as well. It really was such a blessing to be here and we are forever thankful for it. We will definitely be returning.

Living like a local

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the luxuries of being in a home, even though there was only two of us:-). Clean home with necessary items.Traveled lots of the island and enjoyed lunch and dinner at Saltire's. Especially enjoyed our humpback whale show while we were eating lunch. Loved the Acai bowl food spot down the road. All of Rebecca's recommendations are excellent and just the gps coordinates to all locations was awesome. The ocean is closer than many beachside resorts. If you are looking to explore the island this is a great place to stay.
