About Luis & Aracelis Urbina

We are a Puerto Rican family who is very proud of what our island has to offer. We know the beaches, the lush mountains, and the colorful towns are unforgettable, and we want others to experience Puerto Rico's beauty.

Luis & Aracelis Urbina purchased this house in 2016

Why Luis & Aracelis Urbina chose Arecibo

This property is a gem. The northern shore of Puerto Rico has only a few accessible beaches and this is one of the most beautiful ones. The beach behind the lot has been dubbed "el paraiso" (paradise) by locals for it's uncharacteristic rock barrier that protects the lagoon from the sometimes raging waves and creates a tranquil cove that can be enjoyed in complete safety. Arecibo is close enough to San Juan, but removed enough to avoid all the hustle-and-bustle of the Metropolitan area. The villa is fully equipped for cooking and spending quality time as a family. But what's special about this property is its backyard splendor. It will take your breath away. Consider Paradise Cove. You won't regret it!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the cove that gives this property its name. There is also a dune that is a few feet above sea-level so you can sit and enjoy the view for hours. At walking distance there are caves and other coves. Within walking distance is The Indian Cave (La Cueva del Indio) and the newly erected Columbus statue. Barrio Islote and Arecibo are hosts to multiple beach festivals/events throughout the year from musical festivals to surfing events to wind-sailing competitions. It is becoming an upcoming, tourist area, with future development of high-end hotels and restaurants on the horizon.

This place was exactly what we were looking for. We like getting away to a warm, quiet place away from a lot of other tourists. The beach was wonderful! It had it all... a sandy beach with fun waves (sometimes too big to play in though), tide pools, a lagoon and huge waves beating against the rocks. We relaxed/played for hours with our 7 year old daughter there. The new pool next to the house was also beautiful and a great place to relax and play. The house was very clean and well equipped! No complaints! We would love to go back!

My third time staying with my wife and kids, and I can't recommend Paradise Cove enough. I had the unfortunate timing of visiting during Hurricane Irma, but lets just say the owners went above and beyond to make sure I was well situated. Amazing property, great owners, and beautifully located. 5 stars across the board!

Nuestra estadía en la casa fue espectacular. La casita es acogedora, tiene excelente ubicación y cuenta con todo lo necesario para pasar unos días grandiosos. Allí pudimos disfrutar de la piscina, playa y un atardecer de ensueños. Los dueños de la propiedad se mantuvieron muy al pendiente y accesibles en todo momento. Volveremos pronto!!

Our stay at the house was spectacular. The house is cozy, has an excellent location and has everything you need to spend a great day. There we could enjoy the pool, beach and a dreamy sunset. The owners of the property were very accessible at all times. We will be back soon!!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying here with my wife and two boys and i am pretty confident it will not be our last. The house is small, but perfect for a family of 4. Well equipped with pretty much everything we needed during our stay. The owners are always quick to respond, and have made many updates to the home since our last stay. I couldn't recommend it more. Can't wait for our next stay!

We just retured from our stay... May 16-26, 2017. The cottage was wonderful! Neat, clean, private, etc. We had everything necessary to cook or grill dinner. The bed slept great. We had plenty of towels, wash cloths, and 4 beach towels... more than enough for the 2 of us. The pool.. WOW! Wonderful addition and surprise. We had no idea it was being built when I booked our stay. We sat outside at night for hours listening to the palms and the waves crashing... No mosquitoes!

Hatillo is only 15-20 mins away.. Walmart and Sam's has everything you need.

The only negatives... there is no power outlet in the bathroom and the bathroom is small but you aren't in the shower long!

I would definitely suggest staying here. We will stay again! Luis and his family are wonderful, very prompt to respond and very helpful.
